  • I never thought Wizards would be able to do as big of a dick move as going 3.0 to 3.5 but I think this comes close. They are dropping the skirmish rules for minis now that they have gotten everyone to switch to 4.0. They will be producing them still but only as an accessory to D&D. I sure am glad we didn't make the switch to 4.0. This blows though cuz that means there will be no more Iconic D&D Minis prob. Although they would have been 4.0 anyhow and I am not sure how easy it would be to convert them to 3x rules.

Saturday, July 5, 2008

  • We order the colossal Red Dragon, Gargantuan Blue Dragon and the Drizzit Scenario pack with the Gargantuan White Dragon.

Thursday, June 5, 2008

  • David, Casey and Matt ordered a case of Unhallowed.
  • We need to decided if we want to bother with the 4e minis game or if we want to play it 3e with adapting some of the new 4e rules which are nice. All of the stat cards were converted to 4e so we wouldn't be able to use all of our minis when we play. If we don't then we are prob done buying minis unless we want more from a specific set, 3e everything is cheap right now.

Saturday March 28, 2008

  • I have uploaded a Sheet to track DDM campaigns.

Thursday Feb 28, 2008

  • A couple weeks ago i did buy a booster box of Desert of Desolation, and I got a surprising amount of Drow in it, i think as much or more than when we bought Underdark. I know David likes to play Drow, maybe now there will be a little more interest in buying a case knowing this? - Matt
  • WOTC is also protecting the minis more in shipping, they have packaging now that support the flimsier sections of the minis so they don't get bent/warped in the package.
  • I was reading up on the new rule set for 4e and I think that we should adapt some of the rules from 4e even if we don't play 4e minis themselves. One thing that I don't like about DDM is that everyone charges to one area and then they stay there and bash each other till they die (or route but we usually forget this I think). In 4e they are making it a more mobile game. One example of this is that they are adding the 5 foot step rule which makes movement an option while in combat. Another thing that they are doing is getting rid of the routing at half life since that rule sucked anyhow. These are just a couple of the changes that I liked. - Matt

  • I have taken a look at the new 4e minis and they are almost compatable if we want to try it. The only difference is that they all have defense and the factions are different now. These can prob. be overcome easily if we really wanted to do use them. - Matt
  • Wizards has released a copy of the 4e minis rules in pdf format.

Tuesday September 21, 2008

  • David bought Black Temple today. We are thinking of purchasing a booster box from drums of War.

Tuesday September 30, 2008

  • Black temple Raid deck will be coming out soon.

Thursday Feb 28, 2008

  • Swany and I got our booster box of cards the other week, we got a lot of nice cards in there, Swany is coming closer to have his healing pally done for raids and Matt is now working on his Shaman deck. If we could get everyone there we would be able to raid since we now have a healer.
  • We now have Mag's lair.

Sunday, June 8, 2008

  • Well I went grocery shopping today and I found out that they made a big change to one of the products that we need weekly to play D&D. There are 3 new flavors of Mt. Dew.:
    • Voltage - Raspberry, Citrus and Ginseng
    • Super Nova - Strawberry, Melon and Ginseng
    • Revolution - Wild Berry, Fruit Flavor and Ginseng
  • Random game night. Just added to the calander it's going to start this week. It is currentl up weekly but if that is too much I think we will change it to one or twice a month.
  • Double Play is selling Through the Dark Portal booster pack sfor only $2.50 right now.

Saturday, June 7, 2008

  • In every booster pack of WoW TCG you get UDE points. The only decent thing you can get with these is a tabard of frost. Now none of us really play any more and I was looking to see what they all offered now. For a limited time you can get Magtheridon's Lair Treasure Packs (non-foil) for 4000 ude points. That is pretty awsome if you ask me I plan on getting some of these myself and maybe complie my left over points with anyone else, who doesn't have enough to make the 4k mark, to get more.

Wednesday, June 4, 2008

  • Wizards is making some changes to magic cards.
    • Set Size: Fewer Total Cards Per Year

    • Theme Decks Are Becoming Intro Packs
    • Fat Pack: Raising the booster pack count from six to eight

  • Well summer is here and so far it blows.
  • ATTENTION: There is an emergency meeting of the minds on Tuesday night and all of your attendances is required. Show up at Swany's about 5:30 on Tuesday night. It will last until rought midnight. Bring cards computers etc. No D&D just good old fashion hanging out and playing whatever we feel like.

Sunday March 30, 2008

  • Swany added a forum under gaming to discuss 4e purchase. Check it out and post your thoughts.

Saturday March 29, 2008

  • Ok there is a deal being offered right now for preordering the basic set for 4e. I know there is some resistance to getting them, but like it or not its going to be bought by someone sooner or later. This is on sale we get all 3 for $83 and get a coupon for our next ourder to be 25% off. This could include a massive order by everyone, they have minis (by the case too), magic cards, sleeves, dice, crit miss deck, maps etc. They have a lot of different games and gaming accessories. I was thinking we could do this like when we originally started playing D&D and buy one set and split the cost so we can test it and if we only like some parts then we can play D&D X. Let Matt know what you think, email, in the forums etc.
  • Since we have all quit WoW I decided to make a video game section since we all play an array of video games. Here we can share about what we are playing, or what's new. I added the Video Games section to the top navigation bar.

Tuesday March 25, 2008

  • I have a new and improved calendar. Unfortunately wikidot doesn't offer a calendar module so you have to have a google account to edit it. You can always let me know though and i can add or change events for you. This calendar looks a lot nice though than the last one i had made out of tables.

  • X-Box Live is chock full of little kids who yell and swear and make racist comments enough to bug even an ass hole like Swany. I did it pretty regularly with Halo 2 and pretty much ended up hating it, I wouldn't suggest it. -David. On a side note: Would it be possible to set up a message board on this thing, might be cool.
  • Vistara left GoD they could care less about anyone but their core group so I am done with that shit. I am thinking of starting up a XBox Live account but cant decide what to do. I am pissed right now with WoW but have had a lot of fun with the alts.

Wednesday March 19, 2008 (12:08 finally finished my papers and am waiting for the washer to get done)

  • Make sure that you notice the new time for D&D on Saturday and I hope you can all make it. Remember we are starting book two in Matt's game. You had killed Nulia last and pwnd a lot of Goblins at Thistletop.
  • Some of the guys have been making changes to their profiles and such. An easy way to tell whats new is the recent changes link on the Left Hand menu. Glad to see you guys are using the site.

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

  • I have removed the tables from most pages and set them up so they look cleaner.
  • I have also removed nesting from the forum so it is easier to follow where the new posts are. You can't reply any more you have to use new post at the bottom of the thread.
  • The old news from the Interests sections is now in News Archive

Thursday March 13, 2008

Monday March 10, 2008

  • We decided that playing D&D isn't working anymore. People are busy with other things in life and setting aside the same night every week for D&D can be tough so we switched it to every other week. We are still going to get together though with whoever shows up and play cards or mins or other games, if we get enough who still show up we can play D&D still though.
  • We are having our own spring break alt raid special so far we have RFD on tuesday at 8 and BFD wed at 7. Pst me for an invite. More dates are possible so check back.

Monday, March 9, 2008

  • Calendar is now under events.

  • Spring break, man it feels good to be a geek.
  • I have updated the gallery there are photos in it.
  • I have updated the profiles of those who have done nothing to them.

Tuesday March 4, 2008

  • Gary Gygax has passed away.
  • I have always wanted to go to a gaming convention and I found that even though Gen Con is in Indy now, they still have a Con at Lake Geneva. Its June 20-22. We should all hit it up, its about 6 hours away though, but if we could find someone who has a car with good milage gas wouldn't be too much. We were going to go to the milwaukee con I think it was that one time, but we never got to go cuz of communication issues. We shoudl plan on this, let me know if anyone is interested. - Matt
  • Everyone should instal the new installer from this site. OpenRPG seems to be working better once this is installed.

Saturday, February 28

  • So Ben just showed me a campaign setting he's creating. He's considering running a campaign of it over the summer when he'll be in the Twin Cities. Check out his wikidot about his new setting, Magus Europa! http://maguseuropa.wikidot.com/start

Thursday Feb 28, 2008

  • We are not playing D&D this weekend or anyother game since Matt is going to Missourri for a frisbee tourney, and since there are low numbers who have been showing, we have been play two characters each just to be able to play.
  • Remember round two of David's game will be on Tuesday at 7. Meet on vent again and we will jump into a server. The fixes that Matt tried caused more problems than they fixed so we will just have to watch how fast we load and move the minis to try and reduce the freezing.
  • I would like to say welcome to the newest registry on the site Gatorbait.
  • There is now a Comments section at the bottom of every page, to share your thoughts on the articles, ideas etc that are posted in those sections.

  • Just a reminder we are playing David's game online tomorrow night at 7, have a lvl 3 character ready anything goes with david's games, monsters template, and even the forbidden psionics. We are meeting on MA vent and on OpenRPG.
  • If you want to laugh your ass off take a look at The DM of the Rings. Its a comic where LOTR meets your average RP group. Its a completed comic so you don't have to try and keep up with it every week.

Wednesday Feb 13, 2008

  • Tuesday Feb 19 we are starting david online game at 7PM. Meet on MA's vent server david wants to use vent and openrpg. We are playing lvl 3 toons anything goes, yes that means psionics too. We are not hosting our own server anymore so we are going to just use a public one. David is also going to try and get his girlfriend, yes not a horse this time, to play with us. She likes to play Final Fantasy and is a nerd so he thinks she might enjoy it.
