How to Make Your Own Dice Tower From Formboard
I love dice towers. Remind me someday to tell you how I earned a Boy Scout badge by making a dice tower out of a 2 litre milk carton.
Eric Gosselin shared this great tutorial:
I made mine from cardboard, it’s a fun project and the result is fun to use. 🙂
NPC Factions (Or how to be a lazy DM)
This short blog post advocates a technique I also use in my games: factions.
The vast majority of the two hours of prep work I have done recently was statting up a few different groups that the PCs have been interacting with.
I first come up with the leaders of the group and write a sentence or two describing their personalities and motivations.
Then I stat up a sample member of the group, a tough member of the group, and make a few notes about different weapons or armor that I can use to make members of the group seem unique.
