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 add challenge to a RPG-like experience for a three year old
+1 for very relevant experience, and for clearly explaining how adult concepts of "challenge" are red herrings!

revised Comparing D&D mechanics between 2e and 5e
fix a few "2e"s that obviously should have said "5e"; plus the usual tweaks: semantic headers & pretty punctuation

comment How do I manage to handle many villian organizations on an already NPC filled game?
Perhaps, when one has this many wide-ranging and interconnected problems running games, one really should consider reading some of the overflowing river of existing writing on the art of GMing in the countless blogs, articles, and books devoted to the subject. We're good for specific help, not so much at piecemeal mentorship.

comment Noble drow possibilities to not be seen by them (if one has a magic item/spell active)
It works exactly the same as a normal detect magic spell. The only change is duration (it doesn't end), but otherwise is identical.

@Jayjay Actually, we strongly prefer that you fix the question. Reposting it with different wording will just get the new one closed as a duplicate.
