A Few of Things

As I mentioned previously, October is a busy and crazy month for me, with very little actual gaming happening, but that doesn't mean I stop thinking about it. Here are a few random pieces of strange inspiration that I've stumbled upon in the last week...


1) When planning your next Dragon hoard, remember...
Not only does gold melt, but...
DIAMONDS ARE FLAMMABLE!


2) People have been speaking ill of the Bard class for decades, but...
Maybe if you have an adamantine-reinforced violin bow you'll suck less...
Or maybe you just have to be Lindsey Stirling. 

 3) Just a reminder that, when torturing someone...
have the character with the highest Charisma leave the room.
Am I the only GM who regularly has PCs resort to this kind of intense interrogation? 

4) It has been scientifically proven that the bad guys operate at night.
With thanks to the winners of the 2014 Ig Nobel Prizes.

5) The southwest US has such a thing as the "Superstition Mountains".
Complete with stories about a legendarily rich Lost Gold Mine...
Just Look around...this place is begging to have an adventure written about it.
Of course, if you visit it in real life, there are also the requisite tourist-traps, like the Goldfield Ghost Town and mine...which also have possibilities.
