Are there any plans for any DM games at GenCon 07? I'll definitely be there, since I'm already committed to being staff for the True Dungeon again (I volunteered last year via reference from a friend that doesn't play D&D but liked the idea...because of the last minute nature of my arrangements ...

New Mech Weapon

So I'm writing things down for my upcoming campaign and part of it will involve orc raiders. The main theme of the orcs in this is that a particularly influential chieftain arises and, while not truly "unifying the clans," does rally a large number of tribes to his banner. Included among t...

Keep in mind that a chain is, quite simply, a chain. It's only so big and only so strong. I can't remember specifically how much force is required to break something with DC 28, but I know that it would require an absolute minimum of 26 (+8 mod) strength to do and a strength of 46 (+18 mod) to do at...

I'm still in the process of making up proper rules for the "masterpiece" of the coglayer character in my still upcoming (but hopefully soon) campaign. Until he comes up with a better name it is simply known as "Astro's Mystery Liquid." It it extremely flammable in it's original f...

The mechidextrous feat does not reduce the minimum crew requirement of a mech nor does one need to be a pilot to use it. It allows the any character who possesses it to operate two weapons at once. In order to do so, such a character would almost always have to be in the cockpit (or the bridge of a ...

Something that just occured to me. A Talon mech is listed as having a 15'/15' space and a 15' reach, which seems on par for a colossal mech. But the picture shows that the body of it is quite long, sticking out noticiably forward of the legs and notably more so in the back. This body type makes sens...

So I'm back to the drawing board with a new campaign concept (this time with a much better chance of it getting off the ground) and am looking for some advice to fill in some details. Large parts of this campaign focus around the crew of a modified Talon mech that makes long hauling trips from their...

That is a nice idea, but don't forget that these things are probably quite expensive, as well as being quite slow and extremely vulnerable. I don't have my book with me at the moment, but if I recall correctly a belligerent eagle would have a chance of bringing one down, let alone a lunar dragon, sk...

I've played D&D for over four years now and have also been a fan of Battletech for even longer (I've only played the original BT a few times, but I've read quite a few novels, played various videogames, and also play the clix game), but neither led me directly to DragonMech. This I discovered wh...

Zulvar rises, blinking for a brief moment, and turns to Hammer. "If you're going to fight the beast they announced, sure, I'll come. I'm not the best handling mech weapons but I'll do whatever I can to help." As he follows Hammer and his entourage down the low corridor Zulvar mutters under...

If there is any hint of magic remaining in time, Zulvar casts detect magic to examine it, dropping to a crouch in the corridor while doing so to concentrate without having to lean over due to the [presumably] low ceiling. Since doing so usually results in a spellcraft check, here's one: roll 18 + mo...

A general phisical description of my character: Zulfar Hedik is six feet and one inch tall and weighs 190 pounds. As such, he has a medium build but is generally unspectacular from a purely physical standpoint. His skin is a light tan and his dark brown hair is typically left loose and falls just sh...

The character description and stats for Zulvar Hedik, human sorceror, has been posted. I included a background description which I think defines the character fairly well and still leaves enough recdent history up to the DM (Charke) to determine how exactly he gets into the campaign. I'm open to dis...

I've got him drawn up, a human sorceror from a surface village within the Stenian Confederacy who's spells are chosen for the main purpose of supporting infantry aboard (and boarding) mechs.

Cool. Where are the rules for stat generation? In the DSS forum someplace? I'll try to find them. I'll probably get my character made up and posted tomorrow some time. I'm thinking of a human or half elf sorceror, would that be okay?
