  • 10:57 AM - Scrivener of Doom mentioned Daelkyr in post Star Wars & Savage Worlds
    Thanks for that, Daelkyr. After I started this thread I went back through my SW products and noticed a couple of those there. Anyway, we're back to 4E again so I'll just put this on my RPG Bucket List. :)

  • 06:07 PM - Mark CMG quoted Daelkyr in post Hoard of the Dragon Queen w/ Starter/Basic Rules Only
    One thing I thought I saw mentioned somewhere was that HotDQ has backgrounds in it that are themed to the adventure. If that is true, it would go a long way to making Basic a viable option for play. Interesting. Anyone have HotDQ that can confirm there are Backgrounds in it? There is certainly some stuff in the Starter Set adventure regarding Backgrounds and setting-related groups mentioned and encouraged that isn't strictly Basic material.

  • 02:04 AM - Abstruse quoted Daelkyr in post Scaling the 5th Edition Starter Set
    Okay. I'll increase the regular monsters by 1 to 2 and max out the hit points of the boss monsters. I might not go so far as to max out boss monster HP. Depending on the boss, that might be going a little overboard. But I mean it's not like the players will know how many HP he has left, so you can fudge it on the fly to keep them alive another round.

  • 06:16 AM - Burning Yeti quoted Daelkyr in post digital miniatures & mapping?
    Playing with people online using roll20.net can be incredibly rewarding. I want to second this... Awhile back I started up a Pathfinder game using Google Hangouts simply because I have two kids and there's a limit to the number of times my wife lets me out of the house each week. All the players were people I see every week (though usually for boardgaming) but playing online really let us explore a different space. We used Roll20, and the mapping ability was a revelation and tremendous fun. Not the easiest to figure out at first, but once we got rolling I was pulling various character and monster images from the web and making little tiny PNG files to serve as avatars for both the players and NPCs. Throw in a Pathfinder Gamemastery map as your background (or any similar image from a roleplaying PDF) and you've got a great (and attractive) mechanism for running your combats. I definitely think this is an area of the game space that needs to be explored more.

    Now, Morrus never stated they were insane. That's true. No more than minor offense to Morrus, but he probably shouldn't insult the friends of posters for acting in a way he disproves of, especially when it's not harming anyone. It's really uncool to do, in fact. He can do what he wants, of course, but it certainly doesn't look civil to basically (and I qualified it this way on purpose) drop "your friends are mentally ill" in a comment to another poster's concern. I get posts pointing out corner cases, or how certain situations are not very representative. I get speaking up for what you think is correct, or speaking out against what you think is incorrect. But I don't think it's very cool to basically call some people mentally ill because they hold a view that is odd (especially before that view has been expanded upon, or even asked about). It's definitely not good for a productive, civil discussion. Lastly, I want to say that I completely and totally agree with Morrus on the "don't *ever* p...

  • 06:03 AM - Alphastream quoted Daelkyr in post Learn about D&D organized play options
    Exactly. Looks like PFS will continue to reign supreme outside of the store. The previous thread on organized play devolved into edition wars. Let's please not go there. Instead, let's talk about positives and negatives of individual programs at a time. "A benefit of Living Greyhawk and Pathfinder was..." "A downside to PFS and Living Arcanis is that..." Rather than, "Shadowrun Missions is better than Heroes of Rokugan because..." Thanks!

  • 11:37 PM - Warunsun quoted Daelkyr in post Learn about D&D organized play options
    Agreed. So I guess the question is, who do we have to carpet bomb with emails and twitter requests to get this done? If online play is allowed as if it was a "convention site" then it pretty much means that home play also would count that way. Five or six people in the same area could play online or simply meet up at one of their homes and fill out the paperwork as "online". I wouldn't encourage this kind of behavior, but trust me, years of experience with dealing with these organized play programs tells me it would happen. We seen the same kind of "location" cheating during LG unfortunately. I always felt it was a small group of the overall players but it was occurring.
  • 06:47 PM - Plaguescarred quoted Daelkyr in post Learn about D&D organized play options
    I'm an online AL evangelist. I was one of the first DM's to start running LFR on Maptools back in 2008. The four hour block with little to no commitment for players to continue from one week to the next was fantastic for me at the time. I could DM as much as I wanted/was able to. Players could jump into a game as their schedules allowed. And there was continuity between sessions. I really want to see the options of Encounters and Expeditions to be playable online in some official capacity. Running HotDQ and RoT from cover to cover for a home game where player groups are static is great. Online is much more volatile. With players coming and going. I'd be fine with Wizards even designating a VTT as a "premier store" for running such games. My suggestion is Roll20. With free buy in for players and ease of use, it would make the most sense. But regardless, we need the quick pick-up gaming AL modules allow for online.That is soo true. I've played online and introduced many people to the game. On...

    If the new books will be in a bookshelf style app like Kindle, then it needs to be available across all four major platforms. iOS, Android, Windows, and Kindle. Otherwise, you'll alienate digital customers. Well, to be fair, the Kindle app is just the android app in the Kindle Store vs Google Play. Though I do wonder how much a Window 8 app is worth development vs. demand. Still, it all sounds good. If they can make something as functional as AD&D Core Rules 2.0, I'll be a happy DM again.

Otherwise, you'll alienate digital customers. I asked about that on their twitter account. They replied that any web browser will have access to it. It looks like it'll be a downloadable app for iOS and Android as well. I think what that means, however, is that (so far) the offline capabilities will only be available to the app version of it.

  • 12:22 AM - Jester David quoted Daelkyr in post DM searching for a room for GenCon
    Hey! This is my first year going to GenCon and I'm looking for anyone that has extra bed (or floor) and need for one more body to split room cost with. I'd be in Indianapolis from Wednesday until Sunday. I'm judging games for Baldman but with the hotel snafu, they don't have a room for me. I'm a clean, quite, non-smoker. - Josh If you're still looking I'm at the SpringHill Suites Indianapolis Downtown. It's a king room with a sofabed. I'm splitting it with a friend so there's room for one more if he and I sleep head-2-foot on the king. (My roommie is a snorer, though.) We are staying Wed-Sat, then checking out noonish on Sunday. I'm not sure if they have luggage storage if you leave late Sunday, but most hotels do. The SpringHill isn't attached to the con but is attached to a hotel that's attached to a parking garage that's attached to the convention centre. So it's close-ish. It's $180.00 per night for a total of $720 ($240 each).

  • 03:26 PM - I'm A Banana quoted Daelkyr in post D&D Next Q&A: 05/30/2014
    NPC's won't be built with core classes, I would think. There must likely will be villain classes you build from. I think the villains will just be built with monster rules. A human bandit won't be a level 2 fighter or level 3 rogue, he will be a human bandit. Like in 4e the monsters/npc operate by separate rules found in the DMG under monster generation, not in the Basic Rules or in the Player's Handbook. My hope atleast, I hate having to build NPC's like PC's I don't need that much detail, also means even the Fighter in the party is special because he is the only person in the world that is a "Fighter". They've pretty much explicitly stated that you can do both -- create a level 3 rogue and call it a "bandit," or take your idea of a bandit and make it according to the maths. Most likely, where NPC's reference classes not found in Basic, they'll have all the information right with them to run them. But also, NPC's likely won't just randomly reference non-Basic materials. If ther...

    NPC's won't be built with core classes, I would think. There must likely will be villain classes you build from. Pretty sure Mearls or Perkins have stated both options will be in 5e.
