My Own 4E Character Sheets

I designed these Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition character sheets a while back but have yet to implement them in actual games. I am hoping to do so with a one-shot game I have planned using Essentials versions of characters my players are fond of. While putting together the characters for them, due to time constraints, I have seen where I can improve in the future, but for now, tell me what you think.

Solo Encounter Contest Entry

This is my entry to David Flor's contest for building a Solo monster encounter, complete with a pool! This encounter was built using the Angry DM's D&D Boss Fight method and the monster stat blocks were built using Power 2ool. I highly recommend using Power 2ool, especially if you have access to the Dungeons and Dragons Insider compendium.

Click HERE for the encounter.

Edit: It should be noted that the last form of Grimthyr (called Grimthyr, Bloodied) is, for all intents and purposes, mechanically considered Bloodied.

DM Tips: The DM Action Point

As I stated in my previous post, My House Rules, I mentioned how I used something I call Dungeon Master Action Points, or DMAPs, to supplement the need for Action Points in games where my players travel long distances between encounters. Unlike regular Action Points, these ones do not reset to 1 after an extended rest. You earn them and spend them.

Vampires...or as I call them, the Vahm-pyre...

There has been debate, outrage, and confusion spreading across the internets. Which ones? ALL OF THEM!

Why? Because in the newest book in the Dungeons and Dragons 4E line that is coming out from Wizards of the Coast not only seems to be built for the Essentials line, ignoring the original 4E line, but one of the newest classes available in the Heroes of Shadow is the Vampire.

"Now, wait just a minute" you may say. "This makes very little sense." I agree. However, if you are just as confused as this hypothetical person commenting on the class choice, check out Wizard's excuses HERE. Still not agreeing with the choice? Allow me to help you with that.
