You may have noticed EN World was closed for a couple of days over the weekend. That's because the Communities software
was undergoing a much needed upgrade. It's been buggy for a long time, and I finally had chance to attack it.
Create a private space or a public group, big or small. You can create your own communities here on EN World, both public and private. Whether that's for a gaming subject not well-catered for in the main forums, or a tiny private forum for your own game, creating your own community just takes a click. There are already over 300 communities right here on EN World.

A whole bunch of D&D 5E articles/reviews has popped up over the last few days.
"Disclaimer: Any similarities between monsters depicted in this book and monsters that actually exist are purely coincidental. That goes double for mind flayers, which absolutely, utterly, and completely do not exist, nor do they secretly run the D&D team. Do we really need a disclaimer to tell you that? You shouldn't use your brain to consider such irrational thoughts. They only make the mind cluttered, confused, and unpleasantly chewy. A good brain is nice, tender, and rarely used. Go ahead, put down this book and watch some reality TV or internet cat videos. They're really funny these days. You won't regret it. We say this only because we love you and your juicy, succulent gamer brain.

- Art theft & copyright violation? Bleeding Cool has an article about an outfit called Outlaw Press which apparently has a habit of stealing art and other content and selling it.
