I love a good character sheet. I have said before that one of the main factors that will swing my decision as to whether or not I purchase an RPG is the layout of the character sheet. It is a great way to show a snapshot of the game, even without any stats. A quick glance will usually tell me if I'm going to find a game that's my cup of tea or not.

I thought I would share my experiences with Skirmisher’s 100 Oddities for an Enchanted Forest. I wanted to show it in play in case any of you reading this are curious about purchasing the product but unsure of how it actually works out in practise. I rolled during the session itself but you may prefer to roll before play if, unlike myself, you have the time and can properly prepare.

I saw a post on social media the other day that initially made me laugh, but the further I read the more horrified I became. Apparently fudging rolls makes you a bad GM. Wait, what?

Most rolls took place behind a screen.

5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons, or "5e", is a more streamlined version than many previous editions of the popular game. Some changes that have been made are intuitive, and many DMs and players have house ruled such effects for years. Other changes to the game are more radical, being both broader and specific in nature — and the way magic is handled certainly falls into this category.
