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!

Well here is another peek into what I am doing and the layout. Feel free to ask questions!

Mazes & Perils Artifact: The Gemstone of Abaddon


While I was creating one of the modules for my up and coming game it struck me, Mazes & Perils had no rules for the Referee to design up artifacts. So I quickly started jotting down ideas, grabbed various books, looking around for various rules I had written down. While I have ideas written down, and various rules in my head, I decided to play around with what I knew and designed up the follow for my campaign, "The Red Hand of Abaddon".

Here is what I came up with:
