The most convincing argument that time travel will never be possible is that certain events have transpired that time-travelers obviously would have wanted to prevent, if it were within their power.

If you leave things to your players, their characters will live in a bubble. They’ll return to town with their loot, say they are buying this and that, and head back out to the dungeon. But that’s not how real life imaginary life works. Characters will interact with an awful lot of people, making friends […]
Dungeons & Dragons – I’ve been working on this Rogue for a little while, with the coughing fits I was having it was nearly impossible to do detail work. I just need to get the face and edge highlights done and this will be on it’s way back to…

Higgs Bozon particle, Enstein-Rozen bridge, Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, Halley’s comet… when a significant discovery is made, it is often named after the person or persons who made the discovery. Wouldn’t the development of a new spell be accompanied by the same honor? Leomund, Tensor, Mordenkainen — just to mention a few — are forever immortalized […]
The Player’s Handbook, from every edition of d&d, has contained a list of spells, both for wizards and clerics, as well as a complete listing of each of those spells. Naturally, I couldn’t leave well enough alone. For many years, I have used something a bit different. Do you remember when you first started playing […]
The holidays are over. Relatives have gone home. Decorations are put away. Life has more or less returned to normal. Now it’s time to start thinking about monsters once again!

In this episode of Role-Play Ramblings Matt talks about planting seeds. Which in this conversation is a combination of foreshadowing, note taking, listening and even closure. https://youtu.be/HO1knxpc7uc This is something that I think newer GM’S struggle with, but once it’s learned it is very rewarding.
