Weekly Roundup – Happy GM Day Edition

Happy (belated) GM day everyone! It was on March 4th, in case you missed it; the anniversary of Gary Gygax’s passing.  Get your GM something nice, they work hard so you can have fun.  Now, read some articles. 

Ever since we started podcasting, we’ve begun to pay attention to some of the other D&D podcasts out there.  This week on The Tome Show, they discussed Gamma World.  This was especially timely for me, since I finally received my copy of Leigon of Gold.  Huzzah!

Speaking of which, Buccaneer’s Guild had a fun unboxing video and review of Legion of Gold.  You know… for those of you still contemplating getting it.

Geek’s Dream Girl had a fun article about dealing with PC death.  Good information there for new DMs, or you sissy DMs out there who have never killed a character.  (@TheAngryDM ‘s words, not mine.)

Over at The Dungeon’s Master, there were a couple of articles on designing an encounter that can’t be beat.  There’s a fine line between a really really hard encounter and one that just can’t be beat, so walk it carefully. (We realize there’s a lot of controversy over whether it’s ok to do this or not, so bring your opinions to their comment section!)

Stuffer Shack had a three part series on gaming at conventions, which we’re big fans of.  Dixon Trimline handled the subject well, and we suggest checking out all three parts.

Finally Trollish Delver had a bite sized article comparing “heroes” in original D&D to 4th edition heroes.  Where do you stand?  Do you like the way 4e handles PCs or OD&D better?

Did we overlook the best article of the week?  Leave us a link in the comments!
