Minions and Musings

Minions and Musings

By Evil Jeff
Herein I will talk about RPG gaming with my kids, gaming online, even Play-by-Mail/Post. While I call myself a gamer, I have a love for the older games or OSR-style, if you will. I may even have a minion or two help with the discussion as well. Enjoy!

Hello. My name is..... or a character's background.
Herein I have a few calls to finish about caves from Logan Howard and Spikepit. I also go into some thoughts about backgrounds. How much do you need? Is this something that the player needs to really worry about? What about the DM? Music - "Simplify" by Wes King

Dark and wet in a cave or another day on vacation.
We went to the Linville Caverns for a tour. How close are your descriptions of caves to real ones? What about temperature and humidity? I also muse about light source and how that affected my vision underground and how it may interfere in our fantasy games. Music: "Simplify" by Wes King

You've got Dungeon in my Logic...
Finally get around to record some thoughts from a previous episode about placing monsters in a dungeon setting with some logic to how they may eat, sleep, move about and such.  These thoughts have been clogging up my head and really preventing me from moving onto some newer ideas.  Glad that's done now.
