  • 04:21 PM - Echohawk quoted Torg Smith in post Is This The World Record For Most Official RPG Monsters?
    Wow. How did you pull that off? I started with a reasonably complete list of 2nd Edition creatures, eliminated all the duplicates and counted the remainder. (It helped that I already had that list.) It isn't that surprising. For all the complaints about 4e, PF and 3.5 being bloated, they do not compete with the quantity of material made under 2e. See that's not necessarily true. As far as monsters go, if I apply the same counting criteria to 3.X Edition monsters, and only count each type of dragon once, despite many age categories, I get a total of 4291 official 3rd Edition monsters with stat blocks. That's pocket change away from the 2nd Edition total. The Compendium for 4th Edition lists 5315 distinct creatures, which is thousand-odd more than 2nd Edition had. And as far as number of products goes, Pathfinder is currently neck and neck with the number of products per month that 2nd Edition had at its peak. (Admittedly, any comparison there does depend on exactly what products yo...

  • 06:48 AM - aramis erak quoted Torg Smith in post Fantasy Flight Games Acquires LEGEND OF THE FIVE RINGS
    I wonder what will happen with the Legend of the Burning Sands IP. It's tied to Rokugan (in fact, it's NORTH of Rokugan), so it might be in the sale, maybe not. Did they ever do more than just the core? (I've got the core that ties to L5R 3E, and dropped out when they went to 4E.) You are reading my post wrong. I am not saying WotC has anything to do with the purchase of L5R. The use of the word first is just a sequence of things. You can do two totally different things that are unrelated to each other, but just doing one first. I suggest you reread my last post. My care about this subject just hit it's end. :) Your initial post was so bizzarely off topic, that the only logical conclusion was that you thought WotC had bought AEG at some point.

    I wonder if this is the first step before acquiring D&D from Hasbro. Looks like WotC is doing a little spring cleaning. WotC doesn't own AEG, tho' they have partnered in the past, and there is some overlap in the pre-hasbro ownership. Therefore, AEG selling something off bears no relationship to WotC doing so. The 3E Rokugan and OA were a partnership deal, not a case of using a subordinate's IP.
  • 09:16 PM - ProtoClone quoted Torg Smith in post Fantasy Flight Games Acquires LEGEND OF THE FIVE RINGS
    That's correct, this thread is about FFG buying L5R. I was just noting how WotC has been real slow about doing anything with D&D while trying to get as much out of the brand through merchandising and other stuff. With the recent planned closing of the community site, it is looking like WotC might be doing a little spring cleaning. FFG has been a company that is dependent on licenses that have done very well for themselves. Acquiring WotC would be a big boost for non-licensed products. I have no inside information. I am purely thinking out loud. I believe FFG's cards sell better than their RPGs. As WotC does both cards (Magic) and RPGs (a number of different RPG's for IP, with D&D the biggie), it would be a good match. In all of FFGs presentations, they have been showing exponential growth in sales. At some point, their revenue will cross over the bottom line on margin that Hasbro expects from WotC. It could have happened already, we don't know. EDIT: I have been following L5R at AEG for ...

    Man, that might be a good time to look into buying the books. I have always admired the game but was always a little intimidated by the lore behind it. The best thing I can recommend is reading the timeline in the core rulebook. It's not as in depth as all the fiction, but it gives you a good place to start if something there catches your fancy. The history spans about twelve centuries. Believe me, if I had known how much story there was before playing the RPG, I'd have been intimidated as well. Plus, with the timeline, a prospective gm can pick what time frame they want their story to take place. The first campaign I was in was during the 700s. The campaign the gm is running now is set in the 1100s, just before the Scorpion Clan Coup. I wonder if this is the first step before acquiring D&D from Hasbro. Looks like WotC is doing a little spring cleaning. Huh?

  • 02:21 AM - Random Bystander quoted Torg Smith in post AD&D 1E Players Handbook In PDF
    When they restarted the sales of PDFs on DriveThruRPG, they made the statement. Now one clarification, they never said that the back catalogue included the non-D&D stuff. They did not say it didn't either. As they were talking about D&D at the time, it might be limited to that. I hope not as I would like to see all TSR stuff released as PDFs. I could pass on the BoED/BoVD. Edit: I know that's not what you meant; I am just making a note of it. :)

  • 04:55 PM - Ranes quoted Torg Smith in post AD&D 1E Players Handbook In PDF
    They have said they plan to release the entire back catalog in PDF. I fully expect them to release the 3.0 books. I just suspect it will be close to the end when they do. As far as 5.0, I think they will eventually release them as PDF. I just think it will be a while. The entire back catalogue? Wow! I must have missed that announcement. That's brilliant. I don't mind 3.0 being left till last but, given its significance, I didn't want it to be forgotten either. Thanks for the info.

  • 05:02 AM - Barantor quoted Torg Smith in post We Be Goblins Free! Is ... Well, Free
    There are two others from the prior two years. They are worth getting as well if you like that kind of humor. I have not read the new one yet, but really like the other two. So it is a humor adventure? Meh, might pass.

  • 09:20 PM - Jacqual quoted Torg Smith in post D&D 3.5 Dungeon Master's Guide Now In PDF!
    I am hoping for 2E next. I made my 2nd edition PDF's from the Core Rules CD, with the expansion and PDF Creator which is I beleive still a free download. Only issue is the PDF is not indexed, but it is also not pirated.

  • 04:13 PM - Morrus quoted Torg Smith in post Please help me test something
    I can delete my posts in both my threads and other people's threads. I just can't delete other people's posts in my thread. OK, I just changed something. Now you should see an edit button on every post, and from there be able to delete posts.
  • 03:49 PM - Morrus quoted Torg Smith in post Please help me test something
    I can't figure out how to delete other peoples posts in my thread. There is no edit option on their posts like there is on mine. I do have the delete option on my posts. To close the thread, use the administrator button on the menu just above your first post. The open is in the same place. Do posts have a checkbox in the top right?

  • 02:06 AM - Mark CMG quoted Torg Smith in post [Updated] Chris Sims & Jennifer Clarke Wilkes Let Go From WotC
    The files I was referring to had been taken down quite some time before. They included the adventure in the A, U and a number of other series. The Volo Guide's and a bunch of stuff they are selling now. I have purchased the new ones as the quality is so much better then they had done back then. Indeed. Still, there was a ton of free stuff from the 3.XE era that they have made unavailable that could help fuel their customers' campaigns.
  • 01:57 AM - Mark CMG quoted Torg Smith in post [Updated] Chris Sims & Jennifer Clarke Wilkes Let Go From WotC
    And, before they started selling the PDFs back then, they were giving a bunch of stuff away free in PDF and RTF. How many of these links are still good? http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?154448-Free-Adventure-Path But be sure to understand this much, FWIW - http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?154448-Free-Adventure-Path/page4&p=6150502&viewfull=1#post6150502

  • 05:13 AM - aramis erak quoted Torg Smith in post Where are the PDFs?
    Both Adobe Reader and Foxit Reader allow you to go back with the (ALT) + (Left Arrow). These readers also have a splitter so you can see two pages on the screen. Just drag the splitter at the end of the scrollbar to get the second window. The Mac version, it's command and the left and right arrows, not alt. There is no splitter on Reader 10.1.10 on OSX 10.9.

  • 01:08 AM - OpsKT quoted Torg Smith in post Where are the PDFs?
    I would be surprised if they do not eventually release the books as PDFs. When they pulled the PDFs back in 2009, I fully expected them to change their mind. We don't know what they have planned. I am just planning on being patient and see if they release them. I expect they will. I hope so as well, but that will depend on what Hasbro will let them do. Hasbro is probably letting them post PDFs of older editions because it is out of print, it's income on non-production lines. 5e is still a production line, and Hasbro will want WotC to maximize profits. Hopefully the criteria for getting legal 5e PDFs does not include, "No one pirates and everyone buys the first run." because our pirate friends have already ruined that.

  • 11:53 PM - Mistwell quoted Torg Smith in post Where are the PDFs?
    They have stated that the library and eReader can't be exported from the application ( https://twitter.com/DungeonScape/status/501375368394461184 ) If you install the application onto a new computer, how will it know what datasets to download to the new machine without an account to log into? Do you think they will trust everybody just to check off only the content they have purchased? If you are saying you think you will be downloading installers without authentication servers with the datasets included, I will need a link to where they said that. As far as the software going away, it will happen. This is especially true of software dependent on third party licenses. Have you asked Hobo?
  • 10:29 PM - OpsKT quoted Torg Smith in post Where are the PDFs?
    Have you ever been here? http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/browse.php?manufacturers_id=44 Yes, and I still don't see the 5e PHB, or the Basic Rules with a PoD option. Kinda my point.
