Class Look: Druid

Welcome back, good gamers! This time we will look at another class from the game that I love to play, Dungeons and Dragons. Continuing our look at the base classes, we will be moving on to the Druid. I've played the druid a total of once before, and she died really fast (stupid Tojanida). However, the time that I spent playing her was a lot of fun and I wouldn't mind another chance to do so again.

Without further preamble, the Druid!

Class Look: Cleric

The cleric is one of those classes that seems to have a love/hate relationship with players. Everyone wants to have one in the party, but no one typically ever wants to play one. I personally enjoy clerics, though I do dislike how many people think of them as mere heal bots and nothing else. Clerics have a wide range of spells and abilities that can be utilized, well beyond mere healing.

Class Look: Bard

Bards...ah Bards. The second Dungeons and Dragons class that I ever played (my first was a paladin). I've always enjoyed them because I just always thought they were the most bad ass of adventurers. Think about it. Look at what the rest of the party is entering the dungeon with: fighters with sword, armor and shield, clerics with the power of their gods, rogues with skill and cunning, wizards with a wealth of magical knowledge and spells to protect them from danger. What does a bard go in with? A song and a lute.

Hey, the bard wants his money pouch back. It's the one with BMF on it.

Class Look: Barbarian

Greetings! Today I am starting a new series I've been working on for a while now. Part of loving Dungeons and Dragons is being able to play the various classes. Being a part of a team and delving into the depths of a dungeon is absolutely the best part of the game for me.

Some of you may be new to the game and may be asking, “What class should I start with?”. Or you may be a veteran who is feeling tired of playing the core classes and wanting something different. You don't need to reach for that supplemental book quite yet, good sir! The core classes in my opinion will always be the best and most enjoyable to play and I rarely ever stray from them when picking a class for a campaign.

Today, we are going to look at the Barbarian. Over the next several entries, I'll go over the other core classes. I plan to lay out not just why the class is fun to play, but will also list the difficulty of playing a certain class, good race combinations, and various arch-types that you can use while playing the class. One other note, I will be using the Pathfinder versions of the various classes, since that is the rule set that that my group is currently using.

Today is a good day

Hey, so just a quick message for now that Geek and Sundry went up today and looks to be a fantastic new website.  I am a big fan of The Guild personally, so I'm pretty excited to see it continuing there.

Also, there looks to be a new show from Wil Wheaton called Tabletop that pits celebrities against each other with board games.  I love board games and Wil Wheaton, so what could be bad about it?

It all starts today, so I'm looking forward to seeing some quality content from the site in the days to come.  If you haven't already, go check it out!
