| OK, we once again host "the World of Phaos" web RPG game. You can find this game on the right hand side menu next to this news article or follow the links on the drop down menu, or through the forums.
Either way, sign up today and enjoy a relaxing trip through this magical world. No downloads required, only a brain and persistent effort required.
Doing site upgrades sometimes becomes a huge hassel and in this case we hit a speed bump. I predicted this though, so it will be just fine shortly.
Official Forums are OFFLINE for now. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Long time no post on this homepage/ news center. It's been a very trying time in my life the last few years and I've been working hard to make free time to get PADnD running better and updated etc.
I finally found time to get our youtube channel back up and running again. I will slowly be adding back all of the great films and videos we once had before, but this time I'm going to have to try harder and avoid copyright videos as that's the reason our old channel was taken offline by YouTube admins. Either way, it will slowly grow in power once again. Please subscribe to help support this website.
Also, we are going to spend some time updating or adding some new web based games to the site. It's been awhile and they are growing old now. Some new life is required.
If there is anything missing on this site or something you would like to see added, please login or register on our official forums and send me a message or one of the other admins on PADND.com and we'll do our best to accommodate your requests.
Thanks to everyone that donated through PayPal recently. Those donations go back into this site's longevity and hosting fees 100%. Keep everything free for ever!

|With much thought, opinions and deliberation we have gone back to a more original look and feel for PADnD. This new theme dates back to 2000, yet hosts some of our recent modern theme features for an over all old school, yet fast loading website.
As always, there may be some pages that don't conform properly to this new look, so please be patient. As we find them, we'll fix them
Either way, the most popular theme is back ~ Long live the Borg!
|Coat Of Arms 1.2a - Full game has been reset. A few new features have been added to the game and several bug fixes.
- Monsters can now wipe out kingdoms
- Monsters won't congregate so fast now or at all
- Kingdom ransacking can happen now.
Join the Fight today!
| Have been working my coding hands to the bone lately on the site. We managed to restore ALL of the old download archive from 2003 (see downloads menu for sections). Also managed to restore all of the Bard Poems and Bard Stories pages (see Bard's Corner).
Then decided to clean up all of our old mods/admins/users on the forums. Forums are all up to date now, mods are all active and visit the site regularly.
Coded up a brand new Bard's Interactive Story board for all to use and enjoy (see Bard's Corner - Interactive Stories).
Also added tons of new videos to PlanetADnD's youtube channel including; Journey Quest seasons 1 and 2. ALL of the D&D cartoon series from the 80's. D&D Movies 2 & 3, The Born of Hope movie and more!
|The other day I received a nice, uplifting message from one of PADnDs users. They reminded me of the past and what PADnD once meant to thousands of users and still does to the new generation. So I've decided to put some time into restoring some goodies of the past. As they are restored and IF possible I will post them on this homepage. I'll be trying my best to recover utilities/forums etc from my oldest backup from 2003. Yup, over 11 years ago. So look forward to stepping back in time. See you soon!|
We've been brainstorming allot lately and the work has followed naturally. It's been awhile now, but we finally managed to fix the bugs in our old drop down menu at the top of the website. This menu helps people navigate a little fast and find things they might otherwise miss. It's now fully functional again.
We've also installed a few more themes for our main forum in attempt to give more flexibility for cell phones and iPads etc. It's also nice to have for general viewing.
The PADnD blog has also been upgraded to the latest word press version and restored in general.
|Doing some site maintenance again today. Someone screwed up our blog site so I'm upgrading to the latest version. Sorry to those folks who got a Trojan warning from their AV. I got the same one, it didn't do anything, but it let me know someone hacked it for sure.
Also going to change our DL center policy due to abuse. People can't seem to upload files where they belong, so I'm changing it to no-uploading. If you think there is a file we should include here on PADnD, email/PM me via our forums and I'll add it ASAP.
|Hail travelers of the net!
We'd like to invite all those who enjoy great web-based strategy games back into the loop. We have recently re-worked and upgraded our long time closed game "Star Wars Galaxy Wars".
By popular request and years of waiting for a new engine release we can finally offer this great game once again. All new ship graphics, ships to buy, planets and game play offer everyone an exceptional challenge.
Create a New Player and Join the Battle Today!
|Well, found a bit more free time to get coding the latest version of SGW up and running again. Had lots of emails and requests about this long time game we had running on and off and decided that I personally would like to play it again sooo... off we go!
I'll work on the game over the next week or so now that I'm in my slow season. With that said, it will take awhile for me to remap the galaxy and convert everything to star wars instead of the default traders game. I will also be updating code and whatnot to make the game unique and fun.
Any comments can be directed at myself via our official forums
~Later and Happy Halloween folks!
|Yes, it's been quite a while since my last news post. Things have been pretty slow in D&D land. Our custom online realm is coming along nicely offline and it shouldn't be to long (maybe September) before I start adding new content for people to read and/or use.
If your new to this site, which I doubt, you can always find some internet buddies online to play D&D with via our gaming forums. Live PBMB games are always taking place there with some of the best DM's on the web.
Our if you just have questions or need some help, join us on the main forums, the regulars are always willing to lend an opinion or two.
|A special thanks goes out to all of our users, moderators, admins and online gamer's alike.
At this time of year, we would like to wish everyone a happy holiday, safe driving and best of luck heading into the new year.
~Happy gaming and we'll see you next season!
|Well, I've been working on my new realm for about a month now and figured it was time to share what I've done thus far. I've ported most of the infamous 1E classes that were not in 2E over to this world with working compatible copies for all to use at will (IE assassin, monk etc). I've posted some custom races for Arkuth as well.
This world is going to be my passion as you will all soon see. This project will grow rapidly. I've already posted a large amount of detail for the initial kingdoms my group is starting in. Maps, government systems, tech levels, wealth explanations, gods, some places, new monsters and much much more!
At this point I can't post any further details about the current areas my PC's are in as any good DM should understand.
Any gods, monsters requests etc can be posted on Arkuth's forum and I'll see if I can get er done asap.
At a later time I will be adding PDF downloads of all the custom classes / races and monsters.
Arkuth is a second edition AD&D campaign world free to use by all.
|Hey folks. I've been busting my ass lately on an all new realm for DM's and players alike to enjoy. The new realm is now known as "Arkuth - The Sundered Lands" and will be detailed in full, online and free for all to use. I've started off with most of the basic world design, including full global maps, globe view, custom 2E classes, custom 2E races, calendar, gods, ships of sea, laws, equipment lists, Social Hierarchy of Nobility, a few nations, a few cities and a few monsters.
Please join me on the forums to discuss this new realm and share your incite on some of my custom races, classes and monsters.
|Added a handful of videos from our youtube channel to our site. Click the video icon above to view some great D&D antics!|
|While I spend hours looking through files to update and add back to the site I came across an old script that allot of folks email me about and ask if I can get it working. For some reason I never seemed to get things just right to allow these surges to print out randomly... or work at all for that matter. BUT hey! We got good news folks. I managed to recode this little gem of a utility today and it works fantastic once again. So for all you wild mages out there or DM's that need a quick result. Try out PADnD's random wild surge generator
You can find it under our "online utilities" section to your left side of the screen under the main menu.
Rolls from a database of 7000 wild surges!
|Well, the process begins and it won't be any small task as I can tell by the activity on this site. Tis is an old saying but stands the test of time "build it and they will come". So, that's what we'll do
So, we started redoing pages and adding them last night. Starting off with the most popular pages first (the utilities and quiz pages). Some are already done, see them to your left on the menu side of this site.
More to come... of course.
|Well, we tried to email our users to inform them of this massive task and our server just couldn't email 4000+ users. However we did managed to email some of our moderators so things should get back to normal soon enough.
Anyway, onto the explanation; It's been almost a year now since I could really sit down and take a look around the net at other D&D sites and see why PADnD seemed to be dwindling in active user numbers. The only things I personally could come up with was our size.... can you really get to many pages? Can a site get to fancy? Can it get to confusing and drive users off? I've come to the conclusion that YES all of these things are killing the Borg
SO! It's time for a new age. A time to bring back the old, simple, organized, larger font, no portal, maximum participation site of old. Is that possible? Perhaps. I'll do my best to provide that as I simply do not want to shut down the site for good, nor do I want to burden my moderators with endless tasks etc. As the site admin and creator I'm simply going to find good moderators, post only the most popular content and provide the best online gaming tools/utilities and gaming areas I can.
So please join us! Join topics on the forums, make this site your own and share your opinions, thoughts and critiques... and we will do our best to make this site the best D&D community online once again
