What's this Blog about?
Its about gaming, but D&D is top on my list, from D&D 5e, Pathfinder to good old AD&D 1e (where my roots come from!). I'm an Evil DM, I have been for many years, to the point folks enjoy my games and style but fear things in game. Paranoia is great and fuels a lot of awesome roleplaying situations with characters in game. Nothing is as it seems in my games, so feel free to show up in my game with your books and TRY to rules lawyer me, it will only result in another character soul taken. Remember you are the Dungeon Master and ANYTHING can be done as long as you can dream it up because you rule the game, not the other way around! IF the book doesn't list it, doesn't mean its not possible, think folks, you are the DM, do as you please, its your world! Over 1000+ character souls taken as of this date!

Images that can help describe the adventure

You see a swirling dark portal when you open the doors
Sometimes pictures can describe things during your adventure more then words can ever describe what you are trying to tell your players during the game.

While playing on Roll20.net, I like to flash up pictures or play music to set certain tones when the players are facing a situation. Now being an old school player, my roots are in "theater of the mind" and we barely used minis on the table when we played, but as I am getting older and getting more settled into playing games via the internet, I am finding these little "props" really work.

As you look up, you see the wolf howl loudly and snarl before it attacks you!

As you step out of the dungeon, you see a building in ruins... A long stair case is your only avenue to move forward.

This is just something to consider when setting the mood for your campaigns and something I seriously noticed from doing all these things, Players will speculate about the picture and maybe even give you an idea to roll with or use for the situation or a future event!
