  • 09:16 PM - Shasarak quoted Nylanfs in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    You mean facts? Other than some of B, stating verifiable facts of actions can not be harassment. You mean the facts that if you look white then you are not a 'real' minority? I am not clear on which harassment here has you upset? You can check the Origins Game Fair news thread to get the full story but the short form is that a bunch of activists kicked up a :):):):) storm of false accusations that resulted in the exclusion of minority author Larry Correia from being a Guest of Honor at the show.

  • 09:02 PM - Dire Bare quoted Nylanfs in post When Fantasy Meets Africa
    Wolfgang and Ben did what feels like a good representation in Southlands by Kobold Press. I attended a panel at GenCon where he talked about it and he had been doing quite a bit of research into African lore and history for another game system that they ended up deciding that it wouldn't be a good fit for. While I'm aware of their existence, I'm not terribly familiar with Nyambe or the Southlands. I've heard good things about both, that both have attempted to represent African-based fantasy fairly . . . but I'm curious, does either project have any African or African-American authors on the team? I don't think an African-inspired project necessarily HAS to have African representation on the writing/development team . . . . and it's no guarantee of accuracy, fairness, or quality . . . . but I would LOVE to see that. Just like Black Panther had heavy African involvement with the writing, and the cast and crew of the movie. Our hobby is predominately white, but I am 98% certain WotC or a...

  • 07:40 PM - Steve Conan Trustrum quoted Nylanfs in post [UPDATED] DM's Guild No Longer Allows Creator Logos On Product Covers
    Don't forget that it took WotC FOREVER to come out with the srd and license for 4e. And the first license was DoA. Sent from my SM-G900P using TapatalkExcept 4e compatible product was already coming out at that point. They simply weren't branded with what would later become the official logos, license, etc. But it was there in the market. I wonder why people don't seem to remember those "unofficially compatible," unbranded 4e 3pp products too well ... ?

  • 12:15 AM - Rygar quoted Nylanfs in post With D&D Beyond has D&D Leap Frogged the Competition?
    WotC has attempted several times to get into the digital market and has failed every time. They are not good with digital. And if you think it's trivial to make software for a niche market at the scale that Hasbro would require then I seriously doubt you have any experience in that field. I will guarantee you that a high school student can write a java app to store/display text in less than a week. This is not even entry level work.

And if you think it's trivial to make software for a niche market at the scale that Hasbro would require then I seriously doubt you have any experience in that field. What do you mean by digital market? Digital tools to use to play the game? I think they have done pretty good over the last 10 years (though not perfect). DDI got off to a rough start but it did become a pretty nice digital toolset. I used it for many years and other are still using it. With 5e it sounds like the FG and R20 partnerships are doing well, and the new DDB partnership looks very promising too (and will launch in 7 days). What recent failures have they had around digital tools for the RPG? If you are talking about video games then that is outside my realm as I don't play them.

    PCGen has supported the 5e as of 18 hrs after the SRD dropped. And should one do a search for PCGen 5E Datasets you can probably find expanded source material. Completely agree - when I mentioned character builders starting with 3.x and PCGen I wasn't implying PCGen stopped there. Man, one player put together a data file for the gods of my campaign, and then I coded up a prestige class we had created for my homebrew setting. Very extensible. Good times.

  • 10:34 PM - Sadras quoted Nylanfs in post Journey To...East Africa
    Ben Mcfarland did quite a bit of research into Africa for the Southlands setting for Midgard and Pathfinder. Sorry I might be completely wrong, and if I am - I'm certain someone will point it out, but from what I see from the preview this is just an RPG about Ancient Egypt + Aztec. There is much more to Africa than just one empire during a certain period. What happened to West Africa, Central or Southern Africa. There are a crap load of people, cultures + religions within Africa. I don't see many represented at all.

  • 05:40 PM - Matchstick quoted Nylanfs in post [Updated] Who's Playing What On Fantasy Grounds? Final Stats For 2016!
    I would disagree on the price since you will pay for the sub for roll20 until you stop, ie it has an infinite cost. While with FG the most you have to pay for the main program is $150 if you need to get the ultimate. I'll also add that I like the FG community better than what I've experienced on Roll20's forums. Plus you can't even mention competitors at ALL, what is up with that. This is a good point, I'd always rather pay a flat fee than a subscription fee.

  • 02:45 PM - The_Gunslinger658 quoted Nylanfs in post D&D Goes to Work Part II: Professional Game Masters
    This.... You hit the nail on the head right here, that is MY problem with charging money to DM, it just does not feel like the right thing to do. It kind of reminds me of the days when I used to play WoW and I would tank anything, people would offer gold and even real real money but I would not accept because I want people to come to play WoW or D&D knowing that there are good people out there that will not take advantage of the lack of tanks or DM's and enjoy themselves. Selfless service to your fellow hobbyists. Heck, I'm DM'ing two campaigns and I might take on another campaign just because I feel bad when a group has a hard time trying to find a DM. Plus I want to run Out of the Abyss, it looks like it has the potential to be a really fantastic adventure. Scott I would imagine that he's talking about personal integrity. IE He wouldn't feel right for taking pay for it.

    Unlike most americans I do know it's in Asia, but I was replying directly to Caliburn101. :) Actually it's spans both! (I've worked in Atyrau on the Ural River, there's a sign saying Europe on one side and Asia on the other)
