Month in Review: February 2010

by Ameron (Derek Myers) on March 1, 2010

February was month of milestones at Dungeon’s Master. On February 1, Dungeon’s Master celebrated its 1-year anniversary. To mark the occasion we posted the State Of The Dungeon – 1 Year Later and shared some details about how we’re doing after our first year. We’d like to thank all of the readers who have visited us during the past year. Your continued support and comments keep us motivated and let us know we’re on the right track.

Also in February Dungeon’s Master hit its 300th post. To celebrate this milestone, Ameron and Wimwick each took a stab at Creating King Leonidas (from the movie 300) as a level 16 PC. And to make the month even better we got another shout out from Wizards of the Coast on February 18 in their February News and Reviews. Check out all of the Dungeon’s Master highlights from February below.


Skill Challenges

  • Skill Challenge: Tavern Treachery – This skill challenge has an angry community take their frustration out on the unsuspecting PCs.
  • Skill Challenges On The Fly – If the PCs do something completely unexpected, here’s how to use a skill challenge to put the campaign back on track.
  • The Skill Challenges tab at the top of the page provides easy access to all of our skill aides and skill challenges.

Player Resources

DM Resources


  • We added a new section to our website dedicated exclusively to Eberron-related content. The Eberron tab is easily accessed at the top of every page above the Dungeon’s Master banner. It’s a permanent, one-stop-shop for all things Eberron.
  • Being Lycanthrope In Eberron– In a world with 13 moons lycanthropes are bound to act and behave differently depending on which celestial orbs are in the night’s sky.

2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics

  • 2010 Olympic Mascots – The games may be over, but Miga, Quatchi and Sumi are ready to make an appearance in your next encounter.
  • Skill Challenge: Olympic Games – We’ve tweaked the skill challenge mechanic and created a great way to pit PCs against each other or the best NPCs from around the globe.

Book Reviews

  • Review: Martial Power 2 – We share the highlights of what you’ll find in the latest Power book along with our usual commentary and opinion.
  • 5 Must-Read Zombie Books – Zombies deserve respect and reading these 5 books is a good start.

A Look Ahead

In March you can expect new articles from a lot of our familiar series. You’ll get more articles on skill challenges as well as a couple of new samples, more articles on Eberron including a new Secrets of Eberron Revealed which focuses on Warforged and House Cannith, more exploration of the races with Goliath next up, and more traps & hazards. With the release of the PHB3 in March, we’ll provide our review as well as significant commentary on its contents. As always we welcome your feedback and suggestions. If there’s a topic you’d like us to write about please send us an email or leave a comment below. There’s plenty of great 4e D&D material on the way in March so be sure to visit Dungeon’s Master every day.
