How Much XP is CR 1/7 Worth?

July 3, 2012

If you have a high Perception bonus, you may have noticed a new entry under my blogroll. This is for a new Pathfinder blog called CR 1/7, and you should definitely check it out.

Updated every Friday (in other words, far more consistently than me), CR 1/7 publishes a new customized monster, “customized” here meaning a standard monster altered with class levels, templates, and/or advanced natural Hit Dice. It’s a great resource if you’re looking for interesting variants to keep your players on their toes!

From all of us here at Intelligence Check (which is to say, me), congrats to CR 1/7 on their debut, and here’s hoping for many interesting new monsters for many Fridays to come!

EDIT (10/21/14): As has been evident for some time now, the CR 1/7 blog is, sadly, no longer around. As such, I’ve removed it from my blogroll. It’s a shame that it’s gone, but such transience is not unusual in the blogosphere.

Shout-out to Joe the Lawyer

April 21, 2010

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Joe the Lawyer for mentioning my blog over on his own. As one of countless new blogs trying to make itself heard in the vast cacophony of the internet, I really appreciate the mention.

For those who haven’t visited Joethelawyer’s Wondrous Imaginings, I recommend that you click on the link and check it out (and hey, the link opens to the post about me – what a coincidence!). I first started reading it almost a year ago, when Joe graciously saved and reposted a piece of satire I’d written on EN World that mocked a particularly infamous post by Joe Goodman.

I’d written that in a flurry, mostly just to get a laugh out of people, before dashing off to work, not realizing that it was almost certainly due for deletion by EN World’s moderators. Luckily, Joe had the foresight to archive what I’d written. It was a good thing he did, as it turned into a minor internet sensation (at least for me) when it was later referenced by RPG Blog II’s Best & Worst of Gaming 2009 awards (check out the silver medal for “Worst Public Relations”).

Needless to say, all of this was a big factor in my decision to enter the RPG blogosphere. So in a way, this blog is the result of Joe’s generosity.

Thanks Joe!
