Weekly Roundup – Did Ya Miss It? Edition

Oops, looks like we missed a week of the weekly roundup.  Last week.  What, you didn’t…?  Ok, nevermind.  Here are some articles from this week in D&D.  Enjoy!

While this first item isn’t an article, per se, it is something that piqued our interest, and we’ll be keeping an eye on.  Apparently, there’s a “history of D&D” book in the works.  It will be called Of Dice and Men, and will be written by David M. Ewalt of the Forbes blog Metagamer.

Newbie DM had a great guest article by Mike Lemmer who will be blogging about his experience with running MyRealms adventures for a Living Forgotten Realms group.  It’s called 7 Weeks in MyRealms, and this first installment includes some interesting data about turn length and session planning.

Ever wonder if “traditional” 4e D&D would play well with Gamma World?  So did At Will‘s Gamefiend.  Wonder no more, my friends.

The most famous monster of all time?  The one that keeps coming back in every edition? No, no, not dragons, or even zombies.  No, I’m talking about Flumphs! What’s that you say? They didn’t make it to 4th edition?  You are wrong… so very very wrong.  Thank the folks over at Nevermet Press for this one.

While this isn’t really the point of The Dungeon’s Master‘s article, I found the idea of having character “trees” in this article intriguing.  Does anyone else play with a stable of characters as opposed to one character?

Finally, if you’re feeling too ADD to digest an entire article right now, there was another installment of D&D Twitter tips over at This is My Game .

What did we miss?  Leave it in the comments!  See you next week!

      And not only that, but according to the writeup, Flumphs also transcend “story” and effect our real world issues like “edition change.” Quite terrifying if you think about it.
