Character death, resurrection, and the undead – October 2018 RPG Blog Carnival

It’s October, that means goblins, ghouls, the occasional undead, and a trip to of Dice and Dragons! In what has become an annual tradition for the RPG Carnival, of Dice and Dragons is once again hosting the macabre this month.

The topic for this month’s carnival is how you handle character death, both as a game master and as a player. Are they a moment of legend or a quiet passing moment? Do you allow character resurrrection, and if so, how do you handle it (outside of the game mechanics)? Then of course, there’s always those that come back as the unholy undead, “Wait a minute, I though Ulric was dead? Why is he walking towards us?”

So, sharpen your swords, get out your silver, and holy water, and share your stories and tips and tricks on how you handle death in your campaign.

As always, once you get your post up be sure to leave a comment here so you can be included in the wrap up at the end of the month.

Don’t forget to check out the RPGBA Carnival home site right here at with links to all the past carnivals for you to enjoy. There’s a lot of great stuff there.

May your dice roll well!

August 2018 Blog Carnival: Celebrations!

Fireworks - Blog Carnival 10th AnniversaryI know, it’s a bit unusual for the RPG Blog Carnival to stop by here in August but I just couldn’t help myself as this month marks the 10th anniversary of this carnival!

To be exact, the first kick off post was on August 7, 2008 over at The Core Mechanic and the topic was Resurrection.

So, in honor of our 10th anniversary, this month’s topic is Celebrations!

How to you mark those special occasions in your campaigns and gaming groups? Do you have a party with cake and ice cream? Do you hoist a glass of your favorite liquid and toast the moment?

Of course, not all celebrations are blowouts, some are as simple as moment of silence to remember those comrades that fell on the field of battle when the town was defended.

So this is your chance to share those moments, either the ongoing ones (like anniversaries) or those that are just done once (the end of a campaign?) and let all of us enjoy those moments with you.

May your dice roll well!

First Blog Carnival of 2018 Underway!

The beginning of every year brings a fresh start and in some cases, fresh snowfall (at least here on the East Coast of the US). It also brings with it a new season for the RPG Blog Carnival, and our first host, Renaissance Gamer, has already kicked things off with this month’s topic, Tabletop Gaming on a Budget.

From the post:

January’s RPG Blog Carnival topic is Tabletop Gaming on a Budget: how to get gold piece value gaming supplies and resources for copper piece prices. Useful just after the holidays?

Check out the full post for all the details and be sure to leave a comment there, especially if you post something on your site related to the topic.

May your dice roll well!
