The Item Compendium - update

The suggestion came from the Guild membership, and it was a good one. Could we have a central place to find all of the magic items - a super-set? It was a great idea, and we've assembled this for you in the all new DDM Item Compendium, available just in time for GenCon (at least, in time for those of you who will be making the con).

Update: The changelist of the first 3 sets is included in this post.

Preview: Item compendium

The DDM Guild is proud to preview the Item Compendium. The Item Compendium, which will be released in the next few days, because we're in the final stages of spell checking. It will be legal for all D&D Miniatures tournaments at GenCon 2011. I am not certain it is going to have any game-breaking pieces in it, but, I can preview a little bit here. The Item Compendium will be a resource, detailing non-creature items you can add to the warband.

2011 revised edition rulebook - beta

It was probably bound to happen sooner or later. It is a living game. If the players all keep asking for a new rule book, with new rules to cover newly arising situations, well, we couldn’t say no forever.

Certainly, the designs in the last few sets of creatures have pushed the envelope of the game, and the current rules, while excellent, started to have a few gray areas for the judges to ponder.

Gargantuan Blue Dragon scenario

The DDM Guild is pleased to release the scenario and stat card for the Gargantuan Blue Dragon.

The scenario that we’ve chosen is focuses on a very special ancient Blue Dragon; Iymrith the Queen of the Cold Desert; Dragon of the Statues. The link to the scenario is further down in the article, but for those interested in Iymrith’s background… You can read more about her here.. I think you will see why we chose her as our Iconic Blue.

The Solamith returns, Guildmaster leaves

From time to time, the DDM Guild will ban figures which endanger the health of competitve play. This occurs when figures become troublesome for timely execution of play, or otherwise limit the overall potential diversity of the organized play experience.
