Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds from B/X to D&D 5e. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons for both trad and indie games. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment How to create a dungeon based on a realistic tomb, but still enjoyable to explore?
Also, you may want to make this system-specific. I can see that dungeon layout maybe not working for, say D&D 3e or 4e, but working quite well for B/X, or RuneQuest (in fact, there is a tomb in Griffin Mountain very like this), or myriad other RPGs. I'm guessing it has something to do with not having enough room for a selection of combat encounters and traps without blurring them all together?

comment How are Legend Points from creatures split when one PC died in the fight?
@TechImp A note on your tag wiki edits: please don't "talk to the reader" in them. Our tag wikis aren't instruction manuals, they're merely explanations of what the tag is referring to. Also be aware that many of your tag wikis appear to be very, very D&D-centric and edition-centric. You may want to back off from referring to specific mechanical implementations of concepts in the wikis.

Can you tell us what's wrong with King Tut's tomb? It looks quite workable, and in fact resembles a number of small dungeons I have experienced being quite enjoyable.
