Month in Review: February 2009

by Ameron (Derek Myers) on March 1, 2009

We’ve reached our first significant milestone: Dungeon’s Master has been live for one month. As we promised in our first post, we published one new article every day during February. Thank you to all the readers who have checked us out and kept coming back. We welcome your comments and feedback, so please let us know what you think.



The Magistrate’s Daughter is our first original module and was available when we launched.

Skill Challenges

We published nine new skill challenges in February. The Skill Challenges tab at the top of the page provides easy access to all of them. Here are a few highlights:

  • The Missing Ingredient – An easily adapted lost & found encounter with urban and rural examples.
  • Information Gamble – This interrogation has a nested challenge within the challenge.
  • Border Crossing – When stating your name and business isn’t enough.
  • On the Road – Providing PCs with opportunities to do more on the road than fight wandering monsters.

Skill Aides

Campaign Design

The first four articles in this ongoing series were published in February. The Campaign Design tab at the top of the page provides easy access to all of them.


Class Discussion

For those who can’t wait for Arcane Power, we offered our version of the Necromancer: Heroic Tier and Necromancer: Paragon Path.


For the DM, we shared our thoughts on Speeding Up Your Game and Adjudicating House Rules.

A Look Ahead

In March you can expect at least one new skill challenges every week and the next four Campaign Design articles. Our second module, The Spy in Our Midst will be available in Mid-March. A month later we’ll post the third module, The Guardians. Also in March, we’ll look at familiars in 4e, provide 10 alternative uses for Heal, History and Endurance, share some dice superstitions, look at role-playing characters with really high or really low attributes, and provide the Necromancer: Epic Tier. March should be another great month, so be sure to visit Dungeon’s Master every day.

We’re glad you found us and we’re glad you keep coming back. We value your feedback. Please let us know if there’s something you really like or dislike. We have our own ideas about what kind of articles people want to read, but we welcome suggestions. What can we offer to make your game easier or better?
