Stuck? Roll Some Dice – Spark Ideas, Kill Writers Block

Tools of the Trade

I’ve been using a lot of accessories for writing and adventure design lately, among my many tools, a few of my favorites have been the Fourthcore Alphabet and the Deck of Many Things from Madness at Gardmore Abbey. I’ve also been using some miscellaneous bits on things like cryptography, numerology, and puzzles from online sources. Using stuff like this makes for a really interesting mix of dungeon scenarios, plot hooks, fun challenges, and lots of other stuff.

Interview and Book Giveaway with Scott Fitzgerald Gray

Recently I had the pleasure of being able to sit down with freelance writer/editor Scott Fitzgerald Gray of Wizards of the Coast and interviewed him about his new book “A Prayer for Dead Kings and other Tales“. The book is full of short stories, a novella and a short novel full of awesome, inspiring sword and sorcery tales and more. Scott also happens to be writer of my personal favorite D&D 4e publication to date: The Tomb of Horrors (Hardback & DM Reward Module)

Within the interview I pick Scott’s brain about a little bit of everything writing and D&D related, including a dreaded “What is your favorite…” question relating to D&D. We also talk about his new book, of course. He’s also kind enough to be giving away some free (electronic) copies to random commenters, so if you leave a comment or question below you’ll be entered in a raffle to win 1 of 5 electronic copies of A Prayer for Dead Kings and Other Tales! The contest will end November 21st at midnight, so be sure to chip in any old comment by then if you’d like a chance to win.
