Re: Sources for smallish dungeon maps

Google d&d dungeon and then click on images. Some of them are large but you can just hack off pieces/sections that you like. Don't know if you have the old dungeon geomorphs, but you can google that as well and some of them are online. Rob Kuntz released some excellent dungeons some years ago ....

Re: Rogue tactics

Aergraith gave a very good answer I would add: Vanilla rogues can be a bit "uninvolved" in combats. Multiclassing ameliorates this a lot and the low xp requirements for rogues means even with multiclassing you are pretty good at rogue skills Skill monkey classes work best either with prime...

Well, now that I've thought about it, I'd rather see the fighter types have a go at it, those that can benefit from it anyway. I'm a hide and stay in the back kind of guy, so it's not as important to me as others. I agree. We should give it to Lurker because a) he gets stabbed more than us (when th...
