Episode 43 of Nerdarchy the Podcast Year One

Here is another one of our early Dungeons and Dragons Monster vids. Minotaur has been a favorite monster for our group from the beginning. My love for this monster has roots in Dragonlance.

I’ve been hooked since I was first introduced to the character Kaz and Huma. Also the pirate/viking feel of Krynn minotaurs is a lot of fun.

We’re Talking The Maze Marauding Minotaur |Dungeons and Dragons Monsters

We’re Talking The Maze Marauding Minotaur |Dungeons and Dragons Monsters The minotaur is a classic monster not only from the various editions of dungeons and dragons but greek mythology. I’ve always been draw to the brutish power of this D&D monster. It was one of the very first monstrous races I ever played in a RPG game. On Krynn the Dragonlance setting minotaurs were one of the player character races. Later in the humanoids handbook for 2nd edition AD&D the minotaurs would surface again. In 3.5 D&D they’d come back yet again with Savage Species another great D&D book about playing monster characters in the game. From behind the DM’s screen I’ve always enjoyed pitting these monsters against my players. Feel free to share your monster stories with us.

 

My name is Dave Friant I've been gaming off and on for over 27 years. But here is the thing it's always been a part of my life I've kept secret and hidden away. I've always been ashamed of the stigma that gaming and my other nerdy and geeky pursuits summon forth. Recently I decided screw it! This is who I am the world be damned. From now on I'm gonna be a geek, nerd, or however folks want to judge me and just enjoy life. Currently one of my greatest joys is introducing my 13 yr old son to table top RPG's.

RPG Designing with Purpose

Star-Lord RPG

In my previous article, I talked about the pitfalls we fall into when creating character concepts, or more specifically how we overcomplicate the process. That got me to thinking about another side of it. Why are we adding to the game? What’s our endgame? Are we adding to the story, or introducing a mechanic? Or, are we just tacking something on?

Joshua is bad about talking about himself, but won't shut up about anything else. A nerd since birth, he's experienced a lot of the culture. A gamer by nature, a writer, an actor, a film lover, an English major, and a recent discoverer of Dungeons and Dragons. Currently, he lives in Oregon, where his primary focus is to write novels, hopefully get a comic book series published, and maybe try his hand at making a very entry-level tabletop RPG game. He's always had idiotically lofty goals.
