DM Summit--D&D Encounters Hoard of the Dragon Queen @ Veggie Grill


Nathan, Brian, & I sat down to review Week One, plan for Week Two, discuss Doctor Who, and discuss our plans for this season.

It was a great event.

Week One Review

  1. 21 players & two DMs is not good
  2. Got to the Governor
  3. Combat takes at least 45 minutes
  4. Need to end at 9:00 PM--one table went to almost 9:45.


Week Two Plan

  1. Discussed bringing everyone together for a mission. Nathan liked it, Brian did not, still discussing.
  2. We have 5-6 weeks to get to the Boss Fight for the first section--likely not enough time.
  3. David planning to play outside
  4. May need a fourth DM. Nathan had Mike [?] who is interested.


Doctor Who

  1. Completely great


Season Plans

  1. Have as much fun as possible

Official Response to Character Creation--Can We Use 4d6 Method


Thank you very much for your patience while this was escalated to my attention. To answer your question, the D&D Adventurer's League has specific character generation rules that ensure fairness and equality in character generation. The system allows you to generate your character’s ability scores using only the following methods:

• Standard set (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8)
• Customizing ability scores variant (Player’s Handbook chapter 1)

Notice that the "Standard set" is an array of numbers that you can get with the "Customizing ability scores variant", so they are indeed balanced with one another.

To be clear, it is not allowed to roll random ability scores in the D&D Adventurer's League.

Please let us know if you ever have any further questions or concerns. We'll be happy to help as best we can.

Something Evil Stirs in the Gnoll Fortresses of Menectauren


Another fun week in Vandale's Garage playing the Bake--a 4th Edition Eberron game.

We started things off, like all real gamers, by having the Pizza delivered




Our Pizza man has been working there for 30 years... 



Set up in the garage was, like always, awesome--of course, I forgot my dice!



DM James was in fine form for this RP Session



Andrew character was the focus for a lot of the investigation this week--he is part of some evil shadow House Thuranni that left house Phiarlan 



Brett is playing Vassa, but we are getting closer to finding and killing Shooter.



Cameron hurt his knee & is playing Fiddenmar who is now in charge of Brett's ranger house.



David is playing a Warlord who is also in the evil house--and running G riff when Watson cannot make it.



I am playing KUBA, the final Shardmind who is a monk--I need to do a lot of min/max work on him. 



The session when well into the night--when things start to get distorted.


We listened to some really great music during this session--the Indie station was killing it!

Oh yeah, and we are gearing up to fight gnolls--some kind of demon gnolls--it will be great.
