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 What happens when a familiar 'dies'?
Since it's a ritual, it doesn't even have to cost a spell slot for the day.

comment How do I create fantasy cities?
Regarding your edit: Those aren't the specifics that we need. We need specifics on what problem we're supposed to be solving. "I want to make cities, a fortress one. Talk to me" isn't a problem we can solve here. (A forum can help with "talk to me" questions; we can't.)

comment Did piracy problems bring down White Wolf?
If there is an informative answer here, it's unfortunately buried in ranting. Overall, it's hard to separate the fact from the opinion in this answer, which makes it not a useful answer to the question. On the up side, there is an edit button, so those things can be fixed if you're so inclined!

comment How can I find a challenge/dilemma for my robot character?
This sounds like a forum/chat freeform game. Is that accurate?

How long ago would you have played this? If it was long enough ago, that would eliminate some of the recently-published AD&D adventures.
