Sharing Some Other Blogs

Something a little different today.

I’ve been looking into other blogs, podcasts, and videos to get ideas of what has been done and where to excel because no one is covering it. Along my travel, I decided that there were plenty of others out there that are small and unheard. I’d like to help get their voices heard, even if mine doesn’t reach that far. So please, go check these blogs out and show your support. Let’s encourage them to shine on!

First off, Arcana Keep is having a Dice Giveaway. If you haven’t signed up, go to their site NOW!
Also, if you are interested in a little bit more on D&D Beyond and what others think, check out this post:

Great news and tips (including How to Build a D&D character in Under 10 minutes)! They also have an acceptable list of D&D Twitter accounts to follow. Though they did forget to mention me (j/k, kinda).

I think this guy is in the same boat as me. Needs a little pick-me-up to get back to work. Go show him your support so we can see what other awesome stuff he has like this:

I’ll admit, I haven’t looked too far into this one. Hope to explore more later this week. Still, go give him some love because I really liked this Build Your Own Monster.

So please, go check these guys out. If you know any other small-time blogs, please post a link in the comments below and I’ll spread the word. If it is your own blog, let me know!

That's all for The Doctor's orders.

Primary Wall of Force Puzzle: Simply Complicated or Complicatedly Simple RPG Puzzles (GM TIPS)

Sometimes games and sessions can become stale and monotonous. All the skill checks, hacking and slashing through enemies that don't measure up to min-maxed characters— you name it, sometimes you'll get bored with it.

So how can you create a challenge without creating an arms race? Today's GM Tip is all about showing you how you can make simple puzzles that seem challenging. Sometimes just by making a simple puzzle seem complicated, it can stump your players for a period of time. 
The best part, characters can still use their rolls to aid them, but there is no auto-success. What this means is that you aren't trying to blunt off the head of a nuke (somewhat pointless). 
Let's dive right into a quick puzzle and so you can get a better idea. Primary Wall of Force Puzzle
This puzzle works at any level. The puzzle itself is a made up of six different magic items (one for each color and symbol). Doesn't seem so scary? So what what are the rules to the puzzle.

Well, yo…

Puzzle of Persistence (RPG Logic Puzzle)

Need a new puzzle to drop into your next D&D, Pathfinder, or other RPG system session? Remember last year when I first released my Primary Wall of Force Puzzle and been dying for a new one?

Many D&D DMs and Pathfinder GMs, and players alike went berserk trying to solve the answer to my 'simple' puzzle last time. It was probably my most successful GM Tip to date.

Well, I know it has been forever and a half since my last posting. I felt it was time to start making new puzzles to drop into your RPGs. (Perhaps one a little more memorable).

Below you will find the puzzle. I will post the solution next week; however, if you need the answer so you can use this puzzle for your weekend game, then e-mail, tweet, or post on my facebook page.

The rules for this puzzle are simple. Follow the logic train. If you use this in a game, make sure you reserve the name spellings. That's your only hint!

Name Persistence Valyrie L. and James C. are of equal persistence, but Valyrie L. is…

How to Choose an RPG System (and Prepare for Your First GM Session) - So You Think You Can GM? (GM Tips Part I)

Bonus Week, Day #2! (This post contains some affiliate links)

You have decided that you want to run your first game as a gamemaster (GM) or perhaps you have been trying, but things don’t seem to be going as smoothly as you thought. Maybe you struggle with how to choose a roleplaying game system for your next game. Or you just don't know which game system to start with in the first place. Well, no need to worry, because The DM Doctor will get things turned around!
“So You Think You Can GM?” is a new blog series I am running (vlogs to come in the future). I will be jumping in to help new and old GMs alike to bring out the best of each and every game. This is the main reason I started this blog. Though this series targets Dungeons and Dragons and The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, the advice will branch over to other systems.
First thing’s first: So you think you can GM? Really? You? Of course YOU! Well, frankly, yes you can. Anybody can. Being a GM isn’t about being the most knowledge…
