Geek on the Borderlands is a website devoted to roleplaying, computer games, miniatures games, and geek culture in general.This website began life as a simple html website where I could post some of my prestige classes and other such material for Dungeons & Dragons (at the time in its 3rd edition). Since those days this website has been expanded and reworked several times, finally being presented in its current incarnation.
Currently I have reduced the overheard and extraneous features to present an easy to navigate and pleasant looking website.I have taken pains to include a much wider variety of material for systems other than Dungeons & Dragons.In addition I’ve invited several other contributors to post their own material on this website.It is my hope that this website will enhance nearly any game with ideas, content, and fresh vision.
To that end this website has ceased to be the work of one singular person.We at Save vs DM are now a staff of several friends and dedicated gamers that will be doing our best to produce the finest material for many different games.No longer will this website languish for weeks on end without an update or new material.It is our hope that we’ll be able to bring you something new at least four days a week.

The Origin of Save vs DM
The title of our URL owes its existence to a very old joke stemming from the second edition of Dungeons & Dragons.In those long ago days of roleplaying saving throws were organized into categories.One of those categories as a save versus Death Magic, which was abbreviated as DM on the character sheet.As most of us know DM also happens to be the abbreviation for Dungeon Master.Since failing a save versus Death Magic was more or less almost always lethal, it jokingly became known as the save versus dungeon master.It seemed to be a fitting name for a website devoted to roleplaying. Now you know; and knowing is half the battle.
