Been playing a lot of Comic Book Hero: The Greatest Cape!

So recently I stumbled upon an older game, made around the end of 2011, by Grey Dog Software, its called Comic Book Hero: The Greatest Cape. 

Campaigns designed around music, have you done this?

I was driving today and was thinking, back to the days of when I was a kid, I listened to a lot of "heavy metal" music. One of my favorite groups to listen to during that time was Manowar! Not only did their music fall in line with what I loved, but also had amazing fantasy stories with them. I remember basing various AD&D 1e campaigns off of just listening to a story about monsters attacking a kingdom.
I remember creating this giant beast, a demonic beast with 4 heads, and 6 arms that was threatening the kingdom of the great Blood king. This king was a ruthless man, but loved by his people because he kept them safe. Since this beast was threatening the kingdom, that love took a nose dive and the people didn't care for him anymore.
I remember putting the players in a situation that they had to decide, do they help this ruthless King and reap the rewards of doing so? or help the people of the land, and just know they "did the right thing" for everyone and m…

New D&D 5e (Working) Cleric Weapon: Hammer of Blood

Pulling open my DM Notebook of years past, I have this weapon from my AD&D 1e days that I am updating to 5e.
This was original for a Cleric that worships a God of war... Such as Tempus or Bane. It can be used for an evil character or carefully by a Good aligned character (as long as they are not Lawful Good).

Cleric Weapon: Hammer of Blood

This weapon appears to be a magical +2 to hit weapon, once identified or attuned the follow properties reveal themselves to you.

Low Level Mundane Trap Ideas!

What's the first gaming book that made you fall in love?

Random 2017 observations, let's make 2018 great! #GameOn

I am glad 2017 is over.
In the past year I've seen things like so called friends turn into backstabbers, and do some dastardly things to me. What can we do as humans? move on and learn from the experience.

I have a lot going on these days, between the Pocket mimic podcast, the World of Arkonis actual play podcast, the Classic Faserip podcast and all the shows I run as a producer, I can't focus on the negative.

2018 is going to be a year of ignoring assholes and focus more on gaming with friends and family.

Loving the future I see, God bless everyone and those that don't believe in God, good luck and fortune to you in your life!

Let's get down to gaming.

First things on my agenda is creating some custom 5e weapons for my group.

So far I have:
Rafu's Blinding Justice Katana for my Samurai PlayerVianna's Shining Light for the Cleric playerNeed one for a Druid.Need one for a vanilla fighter.
