I’ve added a new “Donate” page to Dungeoneering.
Seriously, if you’ve found value in the downloads here and use them for your game, a little monetary love coming my way would be some good karma.
If it’s outside your means, I fully understand (having recently been thrown down the “laid off” chute). There are still the ads to click on.
The guys over at Troll and Toad are the first to buy advertising space here on Dungeoneering. Besides being suave, well-endowed, and handsome men that any girl would be happy to bring home to mom and dad, they run a great site with some awesome deals. Be sure to head on over and check them out. Great stuff, including miniatures and figures of all shapes and sizes.
With Amazon referals having gone buh-bye, here at Dungeoneering, we’re open to most any RPG-related sponsorships. If you want your site advertised on Dungeoneering, let me know!
I’ll leave the ones up for now, but the long and the short of it is, thanks to the short-sightedness and greed of the State of Colorado, Amazon has closed all Associates accounts within Colorado.
Basically, the state wants a piece of the pie that they simply have no right to. Amazon has countered by closing those accounts, rather than deal with the extra burden and paperwork associated with collecting taxes on both the sale and the referral fee.
So in the end, the little guy (i.e. Me) get’s the screw, Amazon keeps more money, and the State of Colorado is back where it started from. Government stupidity at its finest.
If you’re a resident of the State of Colorado and would like to weigh in, drop your congressman a line as well as our lame-duck…I mean…retiring governor.
Two releases this month, both look to be of use to the Dungeoneering crew:
Player’s Handbook 3 expands the range of options available to D&D players with new classes, races, powers, and other material.
This book builds on the array of classes and races presented in the Player’s Handbook and Player’s Handbook 2 core rulebooks, presenting old favorites and new, never-before-seen options to the game. Player’s Handbook 3 also adds the psionic power source to the 4th Edition D&D game, along with several new classes that harness this power source.
Cool tidbit: The Monk is back! I thought that was a glaring omission from the 4th edition, especially since the new 3rd edition Monks were so much fun. I’m not sure about psionics. Never been a real fan of the group of classes, but I guess, to each his own.
This D&D Roleplaying Game accessory gives Dungeon Masters an easy and inexpensive way to include great-looking terrain in their games. This set provides ready-to-use, configurable tiles and three-dimensional enhancements with which to build exciting encounter locations.
This accessory contains four double-sided sheets of illustrated, diecut terrain tiles printed on heavy cardstock, plus two sheets of three-dimensional terrain elements, allowing you to create platforms, staircases, and other dungeon fixtures.
Behold the glorious majesty! Wonder at it’s simple, yet complex design. Marvel…OK, I’ll settle down now.
But, seriously, the old girl was overdue for a face-lift. I hope you like it. A couple of things I want to call out to you:
- The Pages are now at the bottom of your window. Go ahead, take a look. I’ll wait.
- You can now customize your theme on Dungeoneering. I’m partial to Water with Fire being a close runner-up. They’re all good, in my opinion, so play around and find the one you like.
- There is now a rotating slideshow in the top right. Hopefully it caught your attention on your way in. Click on a preview to check out the article about it and download the PDF. These will change every so often, so keep an eye out for something you might like.
- The Gear Icon is going to be Dungeoneering’s new logo. It’ll evolve, but I like the gear and I think it represents the site pretty well. Parts of a machine to get the game going. That sort of thing.
- And lastly, we’re down to one ad zone on the site. Dungeoneering almost (and I mean within a few bucks a year) pays for itself. We have two revenue streams for the site. One is the banner ads from Google. If you’re so inclined, please click the banner ad up top and check out our advertisers. Every click sends us a few cents, but it does add up. The other stream is Amazon referrals. Every time you click a book from the monthly release announcements or any of CDs on the Music to Game By articles and order something from Amazon (anything on that visit, not just the title in question), a percentage gets kicked over to me.
OK, That about covers the changes. Thanks for visiting. As always, don’t be afraid to drop me a line with comments, questions, or suggestions. Some of my best sets have been user-inspired.
Good luck and happy gaming. If you haven’t done so yet, join the Dungeoneering Facebook page and hook up with your fellow gamers.
That’s right! I dare to blaspheme against the great and terrible god Google! It’s bad enough that my Page Rank has mystically slipped from 4 to 2, but now their ads are worthless!
Apparently there’s no differentiation in Google’s data banks from Dungeon Tile to Floor Tile (hence all the home improvement ads on the site). That being said, I’ve just used the T-word twice and I shan’t use it again. Henceforth, they are Dungeon Terrain or Battle Terrain or Miniature Terrain. You got it Google? Terrain, terrain, terrain, terrain, and terrain!
If that doesn’t get it through the monster’s brain, I don’t know what will. Thank you for your time and patience. Oh, and click the ads. No matter how inappropriate they are to the site. Read the rest of this entry »
Today (at least here in the States), is the biggest online shopping day of the year. That being said, I feel I should remind the good folks out there, that this site is funded entirely by Amazon referrals and Google ads. If you do shop online this holiday season, be sure to start off in the Dungeoneering RPG Store. It’s powered by Amazon.com and I get a commission on everything bought through the store. I’m featuring all the newest toys from Wizards, including those shiny new 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons books you’ve been putting off.
Thanks gang, and Happy Holidays!
