What I Learned Running a 1 to 30 D&D Campaign : Critical Hits

Excellent post by Mike Shea on his 4e campaign.

What I Learned Running a 1 to 30 D&D Campaign : Critical Hits

My two favourite quotes:

"People would say things like “deep rumble strike” and then hit an invisible monster for 130 damage. Another would say something “astral wintersgate” and then negate an entire monster’s round of damage. There wasn’t a way in hell I could tell if they had a real power or were just making up nonsense words and then doing whatever they wanted to do."


and

"For some reason I don’t think I ever really remembered all the powers any monster had. To the last battle I often forgot many of the capabilities of the monsters I ran."

Great stuff!
