I'm The Seer!

Posted by Ron Lundeen on Sunday, March 13, 2016, In : Wizards of the Coast 
My next 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons adventure for the Adventurer's League has been announced. It's DDAL04-05 The Seer (which, in development, had been "The Esper," although I like the name "The Seer" much better). It required my to get deep into the lore of the Vistani, the Romany-like people of the classic Ravenloft setting. It was a lot of fun to write, although I overwrote it by quite a lot and had to trim it back pretty substantially (as I mentioned in a blog post about two months ag...

Over-writing is No Fun

Jumping in to D&D 5E!

Posted by Ron Lundeen on Wednesday, May 20, 2015, In : Wizards of the Coast 
A few months back, I heard that Wizards of the Coast had announced an open call to be a writer for the Dungeons and Dragons Adventurers League adventures. I thought that sounded pretty neat; I play and run a bit of fifth edition, but I'm pretty much committed to writing for Pathfinder. But  I thought it might not hurt to look into it; I regret passing on Green Ronin's open call for monster authors near the end of last year; I had a few neat ideas for that I didn't pull together in time. Anywa...
