IT IS THE SPIRIT OF THE GAME, NOT THE LETTER OF THE RULES, WHICH IS IMPORTANT. NEVER HOLD TO THE LETTER WRITTEN, NOR ALLOW SOME BARRACKS
You're a gamer. You like to talk about gaming. Hell, you probably love telling other people about your gaming. Why not be constructive about it for once?
The Psychology Department at Middle Tennessee State University is conducting a Gamer Survey to determine how gaming and social development interact. Pitch in your two cents and pass it to anyone else that may be interested!
It's about time we told people that not all gamers are anti-social hermits . . . and the rest of them totally are. :-)
I have a small party of 3, 4th level characters. They are currently in a keep on the edge of a desert. I am open to ideas for a quick 4 hour session or maybe something that could work into several 4 hour sessions.
Passing on the information as per request -
Neoncon 2008 is looking for GMs to run our many RPG slots. Thanks to those of you who have already stepped up to the plate. It is much appreciated.
RPGs on the schedule include:
* D&D Dungeon Delve (Only run at DDXP,Gencon, Origins, PAX and Neoncon)
RPGs discussed, but not confirmed:
We are very open to running other games as well. If you have something you'd like to run, drop me a line and I'll make sure you have a table and a slot on the schedule.
Our "Killer GM Kit" returns in 2008 with a lot of support from Paizo and other vendors. In 2008, the kit included around $90 in prize support. went to folks who ran five or more slots. So far, it looks like we'll match that in 2008. This year, the target is 7 slots due to the extra day. However, 7 slot GMs will given priority on the biggest & best kits while everyone will get a little something.
Publicly, there is no badge discount for GMs. However, we can be bought! :^) In all seriousness, given the overall US economy this year, I understand the pinch in the wallet. So, we'll work with anyone who really wants to come and help out.

I have concerns about our casters seem to keep running out of magic while the fighter types just keep going. The group came up with an idea that I would like to put out for public discussion. I am really attempting to find ways to break this system badly enough to make it unusable so that it may be repaired.
Here is the concept: A spellcaster (spontaneous or prepared) keeps a higher level spell slot open to be able to cast a spell of two levels lower at half of their normal caster level for "at will" purposes.
These spells are treated just as they are cast normally (provoking AoO, saves & spell resistance) except the spell slot isn't spent. Spell components and any XP costs must be spent each time the spell is cast, etc. The spell must be selected when the character normally prepares spells and cannot be changed until the requirements are met for recovering spells normally.
