Handy Links for Gamers

Random Dungeon Map Generator -- Random and pretty. :) Not populated, tho.

Jamis Buck's Random Dungeon Generator -- Not as pretty, but with encounters included -- of the "minotaurs in one room and hill giants in another" variety due to randomness. Old-school dungeon crawling at its most incoherent!

Rules of the Game -- Grappling, Part One -- One of the most important aspects of combat just happens to also be everybody's least favorite subsystem. D'Oh!

Rules of the Game -- Grappling, Part Two -- Okay, once you're in a grapple, what can you actually do?

These last two are particularly important to me, as Arshan seems to do a lot of grappling. Next time I make a character of Large size, I'll make him a monk! ;P

Excellent generators! They are both nice - and may be a good source for quick maps if I need them for my weekend games. Thanks for the links!

You posted that you were looking for a downloadable random map generator on the page for the first one, so I immediately went and uploaded the one I had to sendspace, went to post the link here...and then noticed you'd already posted a link to it two lines further down.

Well, I was looking for a downloadable version of the pretty one. :) But thanks for thinkin' of me!

Grappling? O_o? You're just making this stuff up, aren't you? Everyone knows that in order to attack someone, you need a sword, or stick, or bow, or spell.

I'm currently reading "DnD for Dummies" and they have a pretty good tip about grappling.

Spellcasters can't cast spells while they're grappled. You can really louse up a DM's plan to off you by running up to his/her "unbeatably powerful" sorcerer-type end boss and grappling. DM's tend to forget to give the guy so much as a dagger to counter a grapple with.

unless your gm is like me and will happily wing such a simple thing as a dagger into a npc's equipment. your notes are not frozen, you can mess around with stuff on the fly.

anyway, no-one wouldn't carry a dagger. i generally assume everyone's got somnething short and stabby. perhaps because i'd never be without mine myself.
