Man, Blizzard has had some seriously cool vids for Warcraft. Enjoy!

d20pro Promo Video

Posted by Tintagel on March 12th, 2010

Here’s a promo video that I just put together for d20pro, a virtual tabletop software that I’m helping design.  We needed a sort of kiosk video to show at conventions and on our website.  Something catchy, fast, and energetic.

Power Cards Video

Posted by Tintagel on October 26th, 2008

I placed a short overview video of my powercard templates on Youtube.  It should provide some how-to instructions for those that purchased it as well as give undecided folks some incentive to buy.  🙂

H1 Maps Scanned

Posted by Tintagel on July 6th, 2008

Well, I bought H1, and I had to make some scans in order to get the maps into d20pro. I have all of the maps done so far except for the 2nd level, and that should be done this weekend.

I posted them on my Mad Mapper site, if anyone wants them. I’ve stitched together the poster maps and re-created the whole Level 1 map from various scans in the book. I also Photoshopped the notes and keys out of the maps (like miniature placement and such) so the player’s wouldn’t be tipped off.

Hopefully, some of you other Virtual Tabletop users will find some use for these. They might be high enough resolution to print too.

Theme & Name Change

Posted by Tintagel on July 5th, 2008

I decided to go with the name of my domain, since this is my blog.  Not very original, and I am siding towards Crit Happens, since that’s the tagline of d20pro, the software I am working a lot with.   We’ll see.  The theme has been changed to better match the name.

The Ghost of MistmoorPart 1 & 2
The Mistmoor family used to be very wealthy and influential in the region, until that terrible night 150 years ago. Some say that an escaped prisoner killed everyone in the house. Others say it was the Viscount Mistmoor himself. In any case, no one made it out of the house that night, and only a few of the Mistmoors, extended family, lived to continue the line. Since then, the Mistmoors have slowly died out and the last remaining heir, a young man named Blaine, has recently inherited everything, including title–and debt. Legend says that the Mistmoor wealth is hidden in a secret vault in the Mistmoor manor – and the secret to that vault was taken by the Viscount to his grave. Blaine needs that money, and needs you to help him. To complicate matters, the Mistmoor manor is rumored to be haunted…

This adventure is for 5 players, and 5th level pre-generated characters are provided. It features d20Pro, the intuitive virtual tabletop software that augments map exploration, initiative, tactical combat, and role-play. This adventure is a TWO PART module, and spans 2 sessions please be sure to sign up for both. Empty slots may be filled for the 2nd if players do not show.

The Ruins of the Moathouse
The Village of Hommlet has grown up around a crossroads in a woodland. Once far from any important activity, it became embroiled in the struggle between gods and demons when the Temple of Elemental Evil arose but a few leagues away. Luckily of its inhabitants, the Temple and its evil hordes were destroyed a decade ago, but Hommlet still suffers from incursions of bandits and strange monsters. Recently, bandit and humanoid activity has been on the rise, and the leaders of the small town have put word out for adventurers to investigate the ruins of a nearby moathouse – once a staging area for the Temple, and often a haven for unsavory sorts…

This adventure is for 6 players of 3th level, and pre-generated characters are provided. It features d20Pro, the intuitive virtual tabletop software that augments map exploration, initiative, tactical combat, and role-play.

And Heroes Were Made
1372 DR. King Azoun is dead. Cormyr is in chaos, and Azoun’s daughter, Alusair Obarskyr struggles to hold the kingdom together. The small wooded village of Dhedluk is clinging to life as repeated orc raids have hammered it for months. Dhedluk’s lord Thiombar is still missing, and the kingdom’s Purple Dragon knights are stretched thin across the land. All of Dhedluk’s more competent citizens have died at the hands of the orcs, but those brave souls have trimmed the raider force down considerably. While may villagers have fled, some have chosen to stay, realizing that it would be no better anywhere else in the kingdom, and realizing, too, that they have no other home. Others have lost loved ones, and have sworn vengeance. Whatever the reasons, Dhedluk is still inhabited, and the villagers are fed up…

This adventure is for 6 players, and pregens are provided. Each player will command six villagers with no combat experience in an effort to make a final stand for their loved ones.

It features d20Pro, the intuitive virtual tabletop software that augments map exploration, initiative, tactical combat, and role-play.


Expedition to Castle Ravenloft: Village of Barovia

Under raging stormclouds, a lone figure stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of castle Ravenloft. Count Strahd von Zarovich stares down a sheer cliff at the village below. A cold, bitter wind spins dead leaves around him, billowing his cape in the darkness. Lightning splits the clouds overhead, casting stark white light across him. Strahd turns to the sky, revealing the angular muscles of his face and hands. He has a look of power—and of madness. His once-handsome face is contorted by a tragedy darker than the night itself. Another lightning flash rips through the darkness, its thunder echoing through the castle’s towers. But Strahd is gone. Only the howling of the wind—or perhaps a lone wolf—fills the midnight air. The master of Ravenloft is having guests for dinner. And you are invited.

This session highlights the first chapter in the official 3.5 adventure published by WoTC. Pre-gens will be provided. It features d20Pro, the intuitive virtual tabletop software that augments map exploration, initiative, tactical combat, and role-play.

D20pro Arena: Deathmatch
“I was not the best because I killed quickly. I was the best because the crowd loved me. Win the crowd and you will win your freedom.” – Proximo

D20pro Arena is a player-versus-player 3.5 D&D environment with many modes of play. Players are challenged to bring their most effective character into the Arena for intense competition. Characters are created using defined rules and restrictions, though pre-generated characters will be provided for those who wish to jump immediately into the fray. Three jackpots reward players in three distinct categories: Total Damage, Last Man Standing, and of course, Crowd Favor. Players earn shares of the jackpots based on their ranking, and gold totals from these jackpots are combined after the match to determine an overall winner. All character builds are welcome, and all Ability scores are important – even Charisma.

This year is the Premier of d20pro Arena, and will come barreling out the gates with the Deathmatch rule set: a free-for-all battle for supremacy. Combat will be hastened and enhanced with d20pro, an intuitive virtual tabletop software allowing for remote play and viewing. Projectors will provide spectators with a full view of the action, encouraging them to role-play as the arena crowd.

This blog needs a name…

Posted by Tintagel on June 8th, 2008

I hate the current name of this blog, and want a new one.  It will focus more on D&D, the new edition, and occasionally have a post or two about other odd things.  I plan to post maybe once per week – nothing major.  Any ideas?  Oh, a theme would be nice too – though I kinda like the current one.

4th Edition PHB Lite

Posted by Tintagel on March 25th, 2008

Verys Arkon at the EN World forums has put together a compilation of everything known about 4th Edition into a Player’s Handbook “Lite.”  Keep in mind that right now much of the information is taken from earlier previews and could be very different from the final product.
