Following a concerted effort, I migrated all content from my old site to this one, and dropped the old one. It hadn’t been updated in 7 years, so it was long past time to nuke it.
I’m a long time player and dungeon master for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (AD&D) and more recently a player in D&D 5th edition and Evil Hat Production’s Monster of the Week RPG. I’m also the Chief Editor for the & Publishing Group’s magazine, & Magazine, a free D&D magazine. While the magazine is no longer in production, our back issues are available on the web site.
On this site I am publishing AD&D materials, most of which I have written. Some material is authored by others, and some is courtesy reprints of out-of-print materials.
Note: I publish under Fair Use, not the Open Gaming License (OGL). I avoid violating copyright and the intellectual property (IP) of others. If you see anything violates copyright, please drop me a line (see the Contact Page) and let me know. I will review the matter as quickly as possible.
Recent Site Updates
The migration of content from my old AD&D site to this one is completed, and the old site has been dropped.
My original D&D site was published in 1999 and I started to develop a WordPress-based replacement in 2014. I have not updated either site since then (yeah, 6 years!), mostly due to a lack of time while working for the & Publishing Group. After Christmas I decided to revitalize things, and this version of the site was born.
(much) Less Recent Site Updates
Last month I posted the Giants of Tharizdun campaign journal. This month I posted the Hall of the Clerics of Tharizdun campaign journal.
Amazing as it seems, it’s been nearly two years since I updated my site.
Not that I haven’t been busy. In this time I’ve taken on the publication of Len Lakofka’s L5 – The Town of Kroten, editing an English translation of The Manual of Golems, started on several side projects, and in conjunction with some other fine folks formed the & Publishing Group. So I have certainly been busy!
Among other side projects I write a fictionalized campaign journal for my campaign, posting it on Dragonsfoot. I am in the process of posting a revised version here on my site, see Campaign Journals in the menu.
Updated the monsters to OSRIC format. I made the decision a while ago to go in this direction and am finally implementing it.
Note: My format for monsters isn’t 100% OSRIC. I’m using OSRIC headings (including British English spellings) but have adopted an organization of the text based upon AD&D 2E. I like monsters with lots of details, as it saves having to make something up in a crunch. But like anything else it can be changed when desired. Also, I won’t guarantee that my text has all British spelling.
FINALLY put the magic user spells levels 5-9 online!
Updated the article Clerics Turning Undead to add table U5 Part III, which extends the cleric levels to 30.
After ignoring my AD&D site for months I’ve beat on it a bit the past few days. One major change was to re-organize the existing pages into the same format as my supplements.
Some years back I organized my house rules into 4 manuals: Campaign Manual, DMG Supplement, PH Supplement, and MM Supplement. When I started posting things to my site I did things haphazardly. In looking things over I realized that my manual organization made the most sense, so I’m going with what works. Following are the changes I made:
- Renamed menu entry from World of Trivana to Campaign Manual.
- Added Introduction page.
- Added Deities page.
Dungeon Masters Guide Supplement
- Renamed DMG Information to DMG Supplement.
- Moved Character Generation page to PH Supplement section.
- Added Attack Table page.
- Added Critical Hits, Fumbles, & Unarmed Combat page.
- Added Saving Throw Table page.
Monster Manual Supplement
- Renamed New Monsters to Monster Manual Supplement.
Players Handbook Supplement
- Created new menu section Players Handbook Supplement.
- Moved New Spells under Players Handbook Supplement.
- Added Weapon Specialization page.
- Moved sections Articles and Adventures Modules to the bottom of the menu.
I updated the D&D history page, cleaning up some of the descriptions based upon more recent knowledge, adding D&D 4, and adding the freeware games based upon the original TSR/WotC versions.
At the end of the month I *finally* posted my 4th level MU spells page.
In the move to my own domain on a paid web host I broke my site sections up each into separate sites. During that process I added News and Links pages, but have not published any “real” content since October 2007. But that should change in the next few weeks.
