State Of The Dungeon – Year 2

by Wimwick (Neil Ellis) on February 1, 2011

I’m not sure if we’re Paragon level yet, but with another year under our belt Ameron and I are pleased with The State of the Dungeon. It’s been a busy year as we’ve maintained our five day a week publishing schedule, seeking to bring you our thoughts and opinions on the great game that is Dungeons & Dragons.

We’ve sought to bring forward our thoughts on the game whether it’s changes to the DDI, character builder or LFR. Along the way we’ve developed a weekly coloumn that features D&D Encounters. While we may have eased off on the amount of skill challenges written, our archives still hold a vast treasure trove of challenges that a DM can easily drop into their game.

Looking forward we hope to renew our focus on Skill Challenges and Eberron. Two things that are vital to the home game of the Dungeon’s Master team. We also plan to make some cosmetic changes to the site, namely our banner which has made one death save too many. Of course the key component for us is engagement of you our readers. Without you this would just be a lonely corner of cyberspace. We’re thankful for our daily readers and all of our commentators. Together we all make D&D a better game to play.

Now onto the stats, here are some numbers from the past year.

Organic growth since Dungeon's Master launched in February 2009.

Well I have to say that it has been an inspiration to me. I appreciate the time you guys take to put quality stuff on the site and hope that your success continues throughout the years. My DM style has changed for the better in the last 2 years I have read your blog. Thanks.

I like your banner.

Keep up the good work!

Amen. You guys consistently have great content and are usually on top of what ever the current issues are with the state of the game. The coverage and support of encounters has been better than at any other blog (including the WotC community!). Well done, and keep up the good work!

I’ve only been back into D&D since late 2010 and I had to find out what skill challenges were and how they were handled. I came across this site on a google search and loved all the articles here. It has been placed in my bookmarks and is one of my daily web visits now for information. Thanks for all the effort and time to keep an informative site running. Great stuff here!

I just stumbled upon this site a few weeks ago when I was looking up some information for a game my friends and I play infrequently. Since then I’ve been checking the site daily and I’ve even been inspired to play more often. Keep up the good work guys!

I send my Encounters players to y’all for the recaps if they miss a session. Keep it up, guys.

I just joined recently, and I like what I see! This place has had some great inspiration for my games, and ideas for my own D&D blog! Hope it just keeps getting better!

Having started my own gaming blog last November, I have a great respect an admiration for both the frequency and quality of your posts. Two to three great posts per person per week is a tough production schedule. With great examples like Dungeon’s Master and Critical Hits, I have a lot to aspire to in my own work. Thanks for setting the bar so high! 😀
