    I'm very pro boxed text. To the point where I don't even try to run an adventure that doesn't have them. My brain can't come up with details like that on the fly, and I don't have the time to do it myself ahead of time. Now that I could deal with. Give me SOMEthing to work with... I would actually pay someone to add boxed flavor text to a couple of my 2E modules so I can convert the rest...

    My group just did a bunch of stuff on the island from the Tortle Package. Now they’re on the way to the Isle of Dread. But they did Phandelver before that... so they’re 5th level right now. I plan to do a few more island pit stops to give them more to do.

    The blurb doesn’t really say what the book is for someone who has never heard of this before. Branding is everything. Quality-wise, this is no better than the Magic book, well it probably is because more effort was probably put into it because the IP is less known, but reception will be worse because the IP is less known.

    The blurb doesn’t really say what the book is for someone who has never heard of this before. D&DBeyond did a preview of it last week: https://www.dndbeyond.com/posts/459-everything-you-need-to-know-about-acquisitions THere's a new player race, some expanded faction mechanics, more monster and NPC statblocks, and a 1-6 adventure.

    My group just did a bunch of stuff on the island from the Tortle Package. Now they’re on the way to the Isle of Dread. But they did Phandelver before that... so they’re 5th level right now. I plan to do a few more island pit stops to give them more to do. Lost Mine is a great little adventure. My group did that using some different characters and really enjoyed it. My group doesn't like overly sandboxy adventures. Lost Mine was just the right amount of sandbox with enough guidance. I have the Tortle Package. I need to check that out. I may wait and do the Saltmarsh campaign first, then have then start new chars and do Isle of Dread.

    What an unfortunate last name. Worse than mine..: I don’t care about MTG but I AM interested in revisiting classic worlds with books like this... He could have been named Harry.

    What an unfortunate last name. Worse than mine..: I don’t care about MTG but I AM interested in revisiting classic worlds with books like this... Yeah, I'm not really into Magic but this has possibilities. We have a Magic world ported into D&D now, but we can have a D&D world ported into Magic in the future (which would mean it gets attention including a D&D revival). One intriguing possibility that this interview suggests is that they might make a new fantasy world, outside of either game, and then have both games design trams make use of it. If they go through all the trouble to have James Wyatt build a new fantasy world, why not use it for multiple games?

    Good for those that want this. Bad for me who wanted Spelljammer and Dark Sun... I think 2019 will be your year.
  • 09:10 AM - delericho quoted thundershot in post Eberron It Is? [UPDATED & CONFIRMED!]
    Good for those that want this. Bad for me who wanted Spelljammer and Dark Sun... Eberron had the big advantage of having an obvious champion - the setting creator is still active in RPG design and was keen to publish new material. Spelljammer and Dark Sun probably don't have anyone obviously going to bat for them, and so are a bit slower off the blocks. But I wouldn't be at all surprised if we saw one or both in the next few years. (Dark Sun, in particular, I would expect to come when they get the psionics rules out - and not until then, sadly.)

    Good for those that want this. Bad for me who wanted Spelljammer and Dark Sun... To be honest, this seems to make both of those, and any other, settings getting support much more likely.

  • 02:12 AM - Demetrios1453 quoted thundershot in post Playable Giff in the next Extra Life?
    To be fair, Tortles didn't exist in FR either before the Tortle Package... Which makes it reasonable a place can be found for giff in the setting. Tortles were unknown previously since they live in an isolated area of Chult no one had really explored before, so I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to have an isolated giff settlement somewhere, perhaps the remnants of a crashed Spelljammer ship. Or - and this just occurred to me - just have them live on Lantan, since Lantan was one of the few areas of the setting undetailed before the Spellplague (so, for all we know giff might have been there all along, especially as the island was a Spelljammer haven on the planet), went missing to parts unknown for the last century or so (so, if there weren't giff there before, perhaps they picked them up wherever the island went), and would thematically be very fitting for a gunpowder-using race to inhabit...

  • 07:55 PM - Oofta quoted thundershot in post Dark Sun confirmed for 5th edition
    I enjoyed Dark Sun, but I enjoyed Spelljammer a hell of a lot more... We don't really NEED setting books. We just need a hardcover that contains all of the races/classes/setting info along with a nice adventure, followed by some web supplements and free reign on DMsGuild. One for Dark Sun One for Spelljammer One for Planescape etc.... One book to get people started is all I'm asking... Or just one book ... One Book to rule them all, One Book to find them, One Book to bring them all and in the darkness bind them In the memories of past editions where the nostalgia lies.

  • 03:29 PM - ddaley quoted thundershot in post Isle of Dread
    You know... they apparently converted Isle of Dread during the play testing. I found a copy of that somewhere. I really want to run this for my group one of these days, but we have too many campaigns going at the moment. Since it was converted for the play test, it seems like it would be a easy choice to polish it up in order to release it officially. Oh PLEASE tell me Isle of Dread is in the cards. It'll save me from having to convert it myself.

    I'm very excited for this game. I hope Hero Lab will eventually support it. They won't do it themselves; I asked a year ago during the Kickstarter. It'll all be open content, though, so any fans (or third party publishers) will be welcome to make or sell data packs.

    Nice! If they do a 5E version, I'll definitely buy it! The setting is made in such a way that it's easy to adapt it. You don't really need to have a dedicated 5E version (or whatever other ruleset you play) as you can do the conversion or adaptation with no major effort by yourself. Another feature that I found amusing is that you can have your characters from your roleplaying world visiting the world of Calidar for a cycle of adventures (or for the rest of their lives) relatively easily.

  • 08:29 AM - Sadras quoted thundershot in post Starter Set: Except 7
    Am I the only one who would be much MORE confused by that? My initial reading would be something like "Yay, I get to add four! Why is 19 in parenthesis? Is that a max or something?" Nah, I found it confusing as well. Thirded. But I wonder what someone who's never played D&D would say. Fourthed. I played D&D during the THACO years and I was 12 and I survived. We really should stop underestimating new player's intelligence like two numbers alongside an ability represent some form of high-science. Good grief! And for the record it will mostly be experienced players who buy the starter set, not the other way round. The 2E one was my personal favorite. :cool: Seconded.

    Aww... I was hoping every monster would get art again... Oh wait, this isn't the Monster Manual.. There's still hope. I'm very curious to see if the Invisible Stalker appears in MM1 5e and if the art is a throwback to 1e.

  • 05:43 PM - Alzrius quoted thundershot in post Upcoming OGL-Related Announcement!
    I like the way you think.... Creating 5E content shouldn't be that difficult... This sentiment has been expressed a lot lately, and personally I'm all in favor of it, however one thing makes me suspicious that it will ever happen: There wasn't an 4E-compatible game made under the OGL. Now, there were some individual products put out under the OGL that were 4E-compatible (I seem to recall some early fare from Goodman Games), but there was nothing on the level of a 4E-compatible SRD or anything like OSRIC. Simply put, no one seemed to be willing to sink that much effort into such a project. I hope I'm wrong here, but why should we expect 5E to be any different?
