Today Dungeon’s Master celebrates its third birthday. Three years ago Ameron and I launched the blog with the intention of talking about 4e Dungeons & Dragons. Our goal was to share our experiences of the game and to provide a resource for both DMs and players. Although 4e was still relatively new at the time, we both felt (and still feel) that there was an opportunity for input from the community about this great game.
Since February 1, 2009, we have published new articles every day (excluding weekend and holidays). This State of the Dungeons is our 846 post here at Dungeon’s Master. The best part is that we’ve had a great time with Dungeon’s Master and enjoy being a part of the D&D blogging community.
Of course there have been some changes both here at Dungeon’s Master and in the D&D blogging community. At-Will, a great D&D blog that launched just before we did called it a day. I also made the decision to step back from Dungeon’s Master due to a return to school and the heavy work (reading) load that came with it. You should start reading more from me towards the summer. Of course this has allowed us to reach out to other individuals who have a passion for the game and ask if they are looking for a forum to share their opinions about D&D.
This past year we have maintained our series on D&D Encounters. A piece that connects the community of players. Though I am unable to attend the sessions myself I enjoy reading not just the articles, but the comments that follow that share the experience. This coloumn granted an unexpected gift as Ameron was invited, along with a few others in the community, to Seattle to meet with the folks at Wizards of the Coast and discuss the public play program.
Of course Wizards of the Coast has also announced the next iteration of D&D. The Dungeon’s Master home game will be experimenting with the new rule set, and as we are able to, we will share what we can about the game. In all it has been an exciting year here at Dungeon’s Master and the future looks good. A lot is going on regarding the game that we all enjoy playing and we will continue publishing new articles about this great game that we all love so much.
