Weekly Roundup – Impending Holidays Edition

We’re all getting ready for the holidays…what kinds of holiday swag are you hoping to get?  New dice?  Minis?  Dare I say it….Dwarven Forge???

Save Versus Death pointed us to the new article he wrote for Kobold Quarterly.  It’s a fully fleshed out encounter with an undead guardian that sends the PCs on three quests.  Definitely worth checking out!

Arcane Springboard over at This is My Game talked about how receiving the Red Box from his grandparents when he was a kid was more than just the gift of a game.  Made us think about how it’s important to bring new people into the hobby, and how D&D is more than “just a game.”

We were interested in The Labyrinth‘s call for a good Mass Combat System.  Everyone readily admits that D&D is no good for mass combat, which is fine because it’s not meant to be.  However, it’s always nice to have something like this in your back pocket.  (Here are the preliminary results)

Level 30 Yinzer wrote a great article on combat alternatives to “kill all the monsters.”  Worth a read if the “kill everything in sight” tactic is the only way your group plays, and you’d like to switch it up somehow.

What? Your article isn’t listed? Leave it for everyone in the comments!!
