The Domain Game - Main Page

Welcome to the main page for the Domain Game series of articles. If you need a lightweight way to have your PCs influence a kingdom in your game, or if you just want to play a game out of the dungeon on an international political stage, read on.

The Domain Game kicked off with the Classics Return blogfest during GenCon 2012, where bloggers took classic D&D settings and updated them to work with 4e rules. I decided to do a little something with Birthright domains, so I wrote about describing domains by giving scores to each of D&D 4e's power sources. I got some feedback that people were interested in seeing more, so I thought I'd make a cover page to collect the links to the entire series.

  • Birthright Domains in 4e - Describing provinces in terms of 4e's power sources.
  • What To Do? - A description of the domain turn and a breakdown of possible actions.
  • Economies - How to earn money and influence from your domain.
  • Trade - On gathering raw materials, making things, and trading with other provinces.


  1. I'm absolutely in love with this series so far. I love the almost Traveller-esque domain generation. I would love to run a layer of this in the background during a normal campaign to make the campaign world a little more alive. I can imagine the PCs seeing new construction all around a certain domain, an increase in soldiers, etc. And all of this not scripted as part of the quest-line, but just an evolving world. Then, when the PCs reach name level, they would have a domain of their own to control.

    Like I said, I love it, keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks! I'm glad you like it!

      I'm looking at a third application of this system: Pre-game world generation. There's an issue of scaling if you start Civ-like with settlers on the shoreline, but I think it'll hold up for the most part. Looking forward to playtesting this thing.

    2. I really like them so far, this is my top choice, the game I have chosen is the My Talking Angela Mod Apk game, you can try it.

  2. Thank you for sharing this. Can it be combined with the mod game apk like the Game Brawl Stars on CoiMobile?
