Seven days until our article on the PHB 2 drops — can you tell I’m excited about it? Want to read about something specific? I’ll be writing about the book from a GMing perspective, and topic suggestions are most welcome .
Gnome Rodeos are our regular link roundups. Provided everyone doesn’t simultaneously stop talking about GMing for a week, you should see one most Fridays.
→ Dungeon Mastering : Yax is hosting Epic Vacations  — two weeks of D&D 4e, with a campaign that will take you from 1st to 30th level…in Kauai, Hawai’i. Fuck. Yeah. This has been getting all sorts of buzz, and rightly so — how amazing would this be? In regular content, recent highlights include a review of Dungeon Delve for 4e  and ways to kick off a fantasy campaign , some ordinary, others decidedly out of the ordinary.
→ Musings of the Chatty DM : Phil’s too wrapped up in his copy of the PHB 2 (which he will also be blogging about on 3/13) to post much at the moment, but a little while back he did a nice writeup of Grognardia .
→ Houseplans.com : Courtesy of Johnn Four on Twitter , this is a fantastic resource for any modern game: thousands upon thousands of floor plans. I used to love the 1e Shadowrun sourcebooks with floorplans in them (Sprawl Sites comes to mind), and I got tons of use out of them.
→ Win a set of solid metal dice from Gnome Stew : I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention our current contest — the prize is a set of
Dwarven Gnomish Stones metal dice from Crystal Caste . These are killer, killer dice. Contest ends next Tuesday morning.
→ Campaign Mastery , the blog companion to Roleplaying Tips, offers a nifty Ask the GMs  feature: you ask Johnn and Mike a GMing question, and they answer it on the blog. We do this here on the Stew, with our Suggestion Pot , and we love fielding reader questions — some great articles have grown out of Suggestion Pot comments.
→ Runes of Gallidon  — a collaborative worldbuilding site that’s way more than a wiki — has opened their RPG module up for business. New content has been coming in: The Light at Bodkin Bay  is a free adventure, and there’s some sharp artwork, too — I particularly like “Serenity ” and “Castle Approach .”
