Sundays are supposed to be the "Day of Rest" for the Blogging from April A to Z April Challenge, but there's all kinds interesting blogs out there, that I want to share.
First: how the hell did I miss out on Dungeon's Master.com? It has general articles of advice for all gamers, such as resources for DMs, adventures hooks, and even book reviews. Well, I do know why, it leans heavily toward 4e. Yet you Google "Dungeon Master" this blog comes up third place. I'm not at all a fan of 4e, but Dungeon's Master shows there's good stuff to be found when you journey outside of your little "Old School" corner of the Internet.
ROFL Initiative is doing a bunch of maps for the A to Z Blog Challenge. Any DM needs more maps! This is another great blog that I don't know if I would have found had it not been for the challenge. I'm always on the look out for more maps. There's even an article about building a "fantasy food chain."
Justin Isaac focuses on the "World of Darkness" for April over the Halls of the Nephilim. He likes to take characters and monsters from movies and convert them into gaming stats for various systems. Its interesting to see what he comes up with.
David over at the Tower of the Archmage is finishing up his Master's degree, but has found the time to post a monster a day for the challenge, along with little vignettes to go with each. The monsters are compatible with a variety old school games. For last Saturday we saw the return of the Flind.
The Dwarven Stronghold is a "3.x"-oriented blog. There you'll find all kinds of articles, character stats and profiles, and retrospectives on the era of 3rd Edition. 3e/3.5e ain't dead folks. The character writes ups and stats alone should be worth your time to visit The Dwarven Stronghold. One of my peeves of DMing 3rd Edition was coming up with huge stat-blocks for NPCs.
That's all for now. No doubt there's much more. And I haven't even touched the heap of writing blogs I've visited.
Tomorrow the A to Z blog challenge continues here on d20 Dark Ages with:
"G is for God and Gaming--Are They Compatible?"
