D&D podcasting right now :D We have almost 100 subscribers now so we threw confetti in the air and danced around. This is the one day a week that I drink Mountain Dew, because its essential to drink it while playing D&D.
We just found this really nice review today, I want to frame it, it’s so nice ;-;
If anyone listens, let me know what you think! :)
I don’t always draw pretty-boy elves, but when I do, they’re lawful evil high-elf necromancers who consort with demon-familiars and are on fire.
Lazerus comes from a mountain dwelling clan of high elves and found out that his woodland kin were being slaughtered and oppressed by a human civilizations. Now he loathes and fights back at humans with a determination that borders on the genocidal.

Is it crazy that I am only now reading through the 4e D&D rules for the first time? I have weird feelings about the alignment simplification. It’s strange to preserve only SOME aspects of the chaotic-neutral-lawful axis but not all. Weird weird weird.
Is it really?
I don’t think I’ve been this satisfied with how a DND adventure turned out in a while. This was quite possibly the best piece of interactive literature I’ve ever written in half an hour (and then improvised more than half of it).
Infinite mansions with rooms changing behind closed doors, gray-aligned characters, and moral and philosophical dilemmas are my favorite things.
Plus, I love a good vampire castle. Especially when the players have to question preconceived notions about inherent evil.
And when you have a sex-fiend Ardent who makes out with other characters to create a crazy emotional atmosphere in everyone’s head so they get ridiculously lost so that they can find the door in the cliff face - things are just fun.
