The Craft of Role Playing

Hello, my name is Patrick McGill and I love role playing games. I wouldn’t call myself an expert, but I most certainly am a fanatic.

My favorite part of the role playing hobby is the act of creation, generally as the GM (or DM). I’ve always loved creating my own content, whether it is the usual home-made campaign worlds and settings or optional rules and systems.  So I created this blog with the purpose of publishing some of the content I’ve created.

This isn’t to say that this stuff is professional. A lot of it will probably be half-baked. To my detriment, I can’t create art of any sort so it’ll all be delivered via text. I hope people find some use from some of it, however. At least to get their own creative juices going!

The main motivation behind this blog is in fact Dungeons & Dragons Next. I’ve played the beta and am very excited for the tone of the game as well as the ease with which you’ll be able to add your own content to the game. So a lot of what I put here will be with it in mind, though it should all be easily compatible with whatever system you use because for the most part I will avoid numbers.

I will also use this blog to review other role playing games or to discuss them in general, though this will be it’s secondary purpose.

So for starters, I’d like you to take part in a poll about what you’d like to see.
