Heroic Cribs: Living… and Paying for… the Dream!

Editor-in-Chief | October 1, 2011

One of the things I liked seeing in the recent Mordenkainen’s Magnificent Emporium (see this link for the review) is a price list for constructing buildings in D&D 4E.  Admittedly, it was not nearly an exhaustive discussion as that found in the Stronghold Builder’s Guidebook from 3rd Edition, but at least it gives the Dungeon [...]
