Weekly Roundup – New Year Edition

Well, it’s happened again. You’ve wasted another perfectly good year playing D&D. (That’s a “Car Talk” reference, for those of you who don’t listen to NPR on the weekends…)  We look forward to another year of great D&D blogs to read, and we’re constantly amazed at the wealth of subject matter out there. You’d think the subject of D&D would be exhausted by now, but blogs keep coming up with new articles.  As long as they keep coming out, we’ll keep reading them.  Here are some of our favorite articles from this week…

Greywulf’s Lair gave us a new way of looking at level advancement, after a humorous retrospective on the differences in time between character levels that old editions of D&D offered.

Level 30 Yinzer had an interesting connundrum – how to reunite a party whose characters have voluntarily parted ways, but whose players would very much like to continue playing together.  We encourage you to head over there and weigh in with a solution.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: We love arts & crafts! That’s why we were excited by the free papercraft “dicie” awards over at WeXogo this week.  These are basically big d20′s you can give out as player rewards.  Very cool.  Did we mention free?

Speaking of arts & crafts, Ben’s RPG Pile had a great article on some Mage Knight minis that make great D&D minis as well. You do have to re-base them; they’re set on 1.5″ bases instead of the D&D standard 1″.  But if you ask us, that’s part of the fun!

Finally, over at Critical Hits, Shawn Merwin posted his Top 7 RPG Wish List for the year.  Some good thoughts in there; check out the comments and add your own wish list items!

It’s a new year, and we want to find YOUR D&D blog! Leave a link in the comments!
