Enchanting Magical Items (AD&D 1e) and how it could be done

The Evil Dungeon Master Podcast

1x
Starting Magic-User spells for AD&D 1e, How do you handle it?
Got a twitter question from a listener, LeroyD20 asking me how I handle starting spells for magic users in my games. While I've talked about this RFI Podcast many many years ago, I thought a follow up on it would be nice because I've changed how I've done it (for the most part). You can tweet me questions as well, feel free! Leave me a voice message and I'll answer that as well! https://TheEvilDM.com @TheEvilDM on Twitter

Space Operas and Scifi games
Was sitting here today thinking about scifi games, ones that involve human survival. Things like Firefly, Dark Matter, the Expanse and whatever else. I enjoy those games a lot and I did start designing up a game a while back, complete with a giant space map. I just never moved forward with it. Maybe its time? https://TheEvilDM.com

Enchanting Magical Items (AD&D 1e) and how it could be done
Topic generated from a post on facebook talking about enchanting magical items and how to get its charges back. The original poster was not sure how to do it and wanted a way.  Sure there is an official way in the book, but then there is the outside the box more interesting way to do it. I talk about that here! https://TheEvilDM.com

The Evil DM Podcast Episode 6 - Talking Star Trek and Savage Worlds.
Its Monday and what have I been pondering about? Star Trek of course! What's the best system for a bunch of newbies? D6? Fasa? Lug? Nope, I am thinking Savage Worlds. Why hasn't there been anything in the fandom for an unofficial supplement? The websites I find for it are great, but it seems most folks drop off in the middle of creating it and leaving it left for dead. http://TheEvilDM.com

Let's Talk Ghostbusters RPG - Episode 4: Magic by the book
 In this very episode, I revive a dead series I started doing as my group  gets back into our Ghostbusters game, by talking about something a few  people wanted to know about.. MAGIC! I talk about it from the GBI Book,  listed on Pg 72. I go over how it works by the book, and how the powers  work, plus I go over my custom Mystical Arts stat, which replaces it in  my games.

Let's Talk Ghostbusters RPG - Episode 2 - Brownie Points Overview
►About This Episode◄   Let's talk Ghostbusters RPG, Brownie points. Going over the basics of what they are and how they work in original and GBI Flavor. Link to my creation cheat sheet - http://rollhighordie.com/gb-character... "What are Brownie Points? Glad you asked! Brownie Points are gained and lost during the game depending on how well or poorly your PC is doing. Most new characters start with 20 Points. Bagging a big mean full-torso floating apparition that's been scaring the Hotel Expensivo guests will earn you bonus Points, while blowing up valuable city property with your experimental high energy neutrino scattergun will cost you Points. As long as you have them, though, they can be used for all sorts of good stuff, such as reducing the healing time you need to recover from wounds. They can also be used to add one die to your total when rolling a check with a Trait or a Talent. Maybe most importantly, Brownie Points can be used to save your ass when things go awry; spending Points can help you avoid the nasty repercussions of failed rolls, lethal injuries, or very, very bad planning by altering the game. In other words, it's almost like having the powers of the GM to dictate your own fate, on a limited basis.

Hey Folks! In this week's episode I decide to show you my quick and dirty combat for AD&D 1e. This is how I maintain a quick, smooth and fast combat for my game. I go over the steps with some examples when using minis, along with some ways to explore how to handle combat. Each person has their own way to run combat, some run straight by the book, others modify it to their liking. Here is my method.  1. Minis are placed, or setup/described theater of the mind.  2. Actions are decided for players.  3. D6 side initiative is rolled, lowest roll side goes first.  4. Spells go off (unless delayed)  5. Missile weapons go off  6. Melee and Movement (handled together)  7. Losing side goes turn  8.

Idols & Efreeti #5: AD&D 1e - Looking to start DM'ing?
Hey folks, in this video I answer a most often asked question of me, about how to starting DM'ing in 1e. In this video I go over a bunch of questions you should consider along the way of your Dungeon Master journey. Things like how many people should be in my group? How long should I aim a session for? What style of DM'ing do I wish to try? Things like that and more! ►Helpful Links◄ (These are affiliated links, each click supports my shows) ◘ Player's Handbook Premium edition - https://www.dmsguild.com/product/17003/Players-Handbook-1e?affiliate_id=421647 ◘ Dungeon Master's Guide Premium Edition - https://www.dmsguild.com/product/17004/Dungeon-Masters-Guide-1e?affiliate_id=421647 ◘ Monster Manual Premium Edition - https://www.dmsguild.com/product/17002/Monster-Manual-1e?affiliate_id=421647 ◘ Unearthed Arcana Premium Edition - https://www.dmsguild.com/product/170096/Unearthed-Arcana-1e?affiliate_id=421647 ◘ Monster Manual 2 - https://www.dmsguild.com/product/17005/Monster-Manual-II-1e?affiliate_id=421647 ◘ Fiend Folio - https://www.dmsguild.com/product/50012/Fiend-Folio-1e?affiliate_id=421647 ◘ Forgotten Realms - https://www.dmsguild.com/product/16782/Forgotten-Realms-Campaign-Set-1e?affiliate_id=421647 ◘ World of Greyhawk - https://www.dmsguild.com/product/17439/The-World-of-Greyhawk-1e?affiliate_id=421647 ◘ Dungeon Master's Design Kit - https://www.dmsguild.com/product/17023/Dungeon-Masters-Design-Kit-1e?affiliate_id=421647 ◘ Roll For Initiative Podcast (audio only) - https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/roll-for-initiative/id343894450?mt=2 ►Follow me!◄  Thank you for checking out my channel.

In this episode I get back into the swing of things answering a question from LeroyD20, about Paladins, and how I handle the protection circle against evil that a Paladin radiates all the time.

Idols & Efreeti #3: AD&D 1e - Thief Class & Skills Rundown
In this third video I go over building a Thief, and how his skills work, giving advice on how those numbers are just situational and can go up or down depending on what's happening at the moment. While a DM can be very strict and keep pure to the numbers, a more relaxed DM will see things aren't always black and white, there is shades of grey in the world. These shades of grey will make those numbers go up and down.

Idols & Efreeti #1: AD&D 1e Character Creation - The Fighter
Welcome to a new show on my channel called Idols & Efreeti as I sit back and talk about Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 1e. In this episode I go over in detail how to create a character, page by page, book by book. I go over some decisions to consider as well when making up a character. As always, not everyone plays the same way, and everyone has their own style when playing. If you don't like the way I do something change it! Make it your own!
