And so it begins. . .

Today's Saving Throw brings you a story of a paladin who was a little too quick to make an attack. Also, I bring you the next guide in my series on diceless adventures, where I talk about diceless combat. Beaudoin also returns after giving us seven principles of poor roleplaying to give seven tips for gamemasters.

And with this really short intro, let's move onto the column!

 New Dungeons-and-Dragons-related T-shirts available
Source: Wizards of the Coast

Have you been looking for a way to advertise your love for Dungeons and Dragons? The crew at J!NX have made three new Dungeons-and-Dragons-related T-shirts available for sale.

The shirts are sold for $14.95 (US), though 2XL and 3XL sizes are slightly more expensive.

For direct links to the T-shirts shown here, click on the appropriate image below.

And so it ends. . .

And with that, I'll close out this slow week for the Saving Throw with the following not-so-random thought: medieval settings have septic tanks?
