It is about this time of year that some GM’s run holiday-themed game sessions. That got me wondering, how many GM’s actually do that?

If you have any stories you’d like to share, the comments section is open to you. So vote in the… Read More

Do you like the stat blocks right where the room and the encounter is described so you don’t have to flip pages? Would you rather it be in a different file, letting you split screen/print out the monsters? Tell… Read More

For quite a while now JBE has used DriveThruRPG’s printer Lightning Source to print our books no matter where you bought it from (with Amazon being the exception). They are convenient and the price is competitive with other US printers, if not better. Recently, however, their color technical specs changed. I’m not going to go into details here, but it came to my attention when the book I have been working on… Read More

Last year we started our Guide to series with the Guide to Mini-Bosses and Guide to Minions. Today we are continuing the series with the Guide to Evil Organizations. Lets call our evil organization “Evil, Inc.” This doesn’t have to be a corporation; this works equally well for a dark religion, cruel governments and the like. Understanding how such groups operate will make your portrayal of them more believable and realistic. So… Read More

During the pandemic, I’ve been running a number of games online over Fantasy Ground Classic. Since many are new to the platform, I’ve been sending out instruction each time to help new players get connected. So instead of typing it out again and again, I’m just posting this once and will be pointing new players to this page. GMs, if you are running convention games over Fantasy Grounds Classic and you have… Read More

Whether you are creating your own setting or just adding your own flare to an existing setting, creating your own fantasy religions can be fun for both you and your players. The gods and their religions is a way to emphasize something important in your campaign. Learning more about the god of stealth is important when fighting the thieves’ guild; discovering a particular blacksmith is a follower of the deity of war… Read More
