Weekly Roundup: One Year Old Edition

Roving Band of Misfits turned one year old this week! It almost escaped our notice, but late Thursday night, we realized that it had been exactly a year since our first article. As a way of acknowledging that, we’re going to add a new feature to the Weekly Roundup. Every week, there will be a “Blast From The Past” link – an article from the same Weekly Roundup a year ago. Enjoy!

Apparently, D&D has cheat codes. Yeah, I know, right? Who knew? Check them out over at Dorkly.

 In case you missed it, The Evil GM has been turning Magic: The Gathering cards into 4th Edition D&D monsters. If you’re a fan of both games, this is a fun one to check out.

Back on Free RPG Day, we picked up a copy of the free Dungeon Crawl Classics module. After reading through it, we were intrigued. While neither D&D nor 4e, we thought we’d pass along some leaked adventure covers presented at Grognardia this week.

Rules as Unwritten had some thoughts about item rarity, as well as another way to motivate your players past the 5 minute workday – ideas to make more item powers ramp up with consecutive milestones.

Playing D&D With Porn Stars listed their idea of the perfect elements of sandbox games. Don’t worry, nothing NSFW in this post.

Finally, if you’re a fan of the Fourthcore Team Deathmatch put on by DMG p.42 Actions the Rules Don’t Cover check out some of the news items announced this week, including a play by post option.

Blast From The Past (Weekly Roundup: First Edition)

Sarah Darkmagic had these thoughts, as well as these followup thoughts about ritual use.  We certainly don’t see enough ritual use around our tables for various reasons, and would like to see more.
