Topic: Pirates 4: What Did You Think?
Subject: ...

Reviews I've read suggest that the film looks much better in 2D, that the post production made it much darker in 3D.

By and large, I hate 3D for movies.

Topic: The New Entertainment Category
Subject: The New Entertainment Catgegory

Welcome to the Inn's sparkly new Entertainment category. You can Thank Tann'Talas for this one - he has pestered me to open a movies section for the forum.

I realized that movies are great, but really, if we're going to set aside a place for them, we should likewise have a place for music, books, television, what have you. Therefore, the entertainment section was born.

Topic: Loaded Dice: the Guardian, part one
Subject: answers

The story includes three regular LD characters - Faustus (pictured in this strip), Dalana, and Jhim. This arc happens in a different timeline... perhaps later in their adventuring careers, or in an alternate reality.

I have seven more completed strips in my hands... so believe it. I plan to queue these up, so even if I'm hit by a bus, the show will go on.

I have the first four strips already in hand. It's a cool little plotline, I think - and it looks great.

Subject: Loaded Dice: the Guardian guest arc begins!

After far, far too long of a delay, we finally have a new Loaded Dice!

Check out the cover art for the upcoming guest arc entitled "the Guardian". Many, many thanks to Roel Stalpers of Rules of Rule for volunteering to do this.

No, really - he contacted me, not the other way around.

Subject: slight delay

We didn't quite make the May 1st deadline, folks - I lost power for several days due to the tornadoes here in Alabama. I hope to have an actual entry form up by tomorrow.

Thanks for your patience!

Topic: Legends of Audalis Contest
Subject: yep

Since we don't have a business agreement, there is no conflict of interest that I see (which is why publishers are often prohibited from entering). Feel free to enter!

Topic: Your map for this webcomic, can I have it?
Subject: yep

Admiral nailed it with the link. I took that module and customized it a bit to fit within Audalis and my own campaign, but that's the original source material.

Be nice and let the original author know that you enjoyed it and that you got it from Loaded Dice.

I'll be setting up a custom entry form for the contest. It would be great if folks would not only enter, but also post it other places that it is okay to do such (facebook, twitter, etc).

Topic: instant messaging at the Inn?
Subject: sigh

By mature, I meant code that had been around for awhile, used in multiple settings, etc. Dirty minded so and sos!

I don't know if it'll work or not for us - we'll see. I do have the green light to do this client project, so I'll know more once the install is done.

Subject: instant messaging at the Inn?

It looks like I may be doing an interesting project for a client. I'd be setting up openfire instant messenger server for them, and then customizing the spark client with their branding and whatnot.

This is a mature, stable application - not some code that requires me to reinvent the wheel.

I wonder if anyone here would be interested in such a thing for the Inn?

I wholeheartedly agree with the bulk of your post, I disagree with a few items... and by and large, I appreciate your input.

I reserve the right to come back and make a more thoughtful response expanding on my comments above.

Topic: Would you like to write for the Inn?
Subject: Would you like to write for the Inn?

Once upon a time, in the dark days of the Internet (right around the year 2000), a horrible, ugly little D&D web page was founded on the free Angelfire hosting service. Created by a guy wasting time in his college HTML class, it was in many ways an absolute abomination - the pages lacked a consistent look and feel, he placed every fantasy-related animated gif that he could find on the site... in short, it was terrible.

However, what the guy lacked in pizazz, he tried to make up for with usable content. He began posting articles on how to be a better player and DM. He shared scriblings from a three ring campaign binder about his homebrew setting. He added a hosted message board.

Amazingly, people came. Some stuch around. They discussed D&D, they began playing games of it on the cheesy message board hosted on the hokey site.

And the Red Dragon Inn was born.


Over time, the site grew and evolved. A domain name was purchased. An actual design was applied. Utilities (dice roller, character generator, etc) were created. A forum (then, years later, another) was written just for the site. Chat was added, and for a time, was insanely popular.

The site won awards for its content. A sense of community grew, and people grew proud of the place. The Inn enjoyed a golden age.


The webmaster gave away his time, bit by bit. Many of the founding, core members of the community, left. The entire membership went through a vast amount of turnover. And of course, there were crashes.

These days, the Inn is lucky to see half a dozen new pieces of actual content per year. We still enjoy a reasonably active message board, and we get a lot of visitors who use the utilities (the name generators, especially), but few stick around to participate in the site. Is this how it has to be?

I say, no.

I love the forums and the interaction there. I'd love to see the chat rooms busy again. I think that one thing the Inn is truly lacking is the regular addition of quality, useful gaming content. I'd like to change that.

Are you interested in having your writing published by the Inn? Would you like to create articles on a regular basis? Would you like to simply do one every now and then as you get the urge? Perhaps you'd like to host an RPG-related blog here on the site, or help participate in worldbuilding.

Contact me, please. A major strength of this site has always been the members of the community. I'd like to draw on that in an effort to build up the site as a whole.

I'm looking for the following:

Articles. These can be oriented towards the player or the GM; they can be about specific games and editions, or about roleplaying in general. They can involve rules, house rules, or interpretations, or they can be more related to general gaming.

Art. We have a large library of art unique to the site, but it has been some time since it was regularly added to. If you like to draw or paint, please consider sharing fantasy/RPG related material with us.

Creative works. Do you enjoy writing short stories or poems? Perhaps you get a kick out of making parody songs? Please share these with us. The Archives is chock full of great work - but again, we have seldom added to it of late.

Contributions to the Audalis campaign setting. Audalis was originally created by me for my own tabletop sessions, but I allowed a lot of input from my players to help shape the world. I followed that traditions when bringing the setting to the internat, and the world became a community-created setting, with a dozen contributing authors and many more than that who have contributed art, ideas, and playtesting.

While there is quite a bit of source material available, we have so much more that could be done. There are entire cities that are but a name on a map. There are organizations - both public and secret - that need to be created. There are heroes and villans waiting for their stories to be told. And of course, all this and more could be illustrated visually!

Blogs. Perhaps structured articles are not your thing - perhaps you are more suited to the stream of conciousness style associated with blogging. Great! If you are willing and able to produce an RPG related blog on anything resembling any sort of a schedule, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for your interest. I hope that you will help me to help the Inn move forward as a destination for those looking not only for a friendly commuity, but for useful gaming information.
