    Here's a snippet of the map from Sea of Fallen Stars that digitalelf mentioned.

    My experience was that this got much worse for high-level play. Most of our level 25+ games consisted of just one or two set-piece battles. And, to be fair, 4e does that sort of huge battle very well, if a bit slowly. High level play in 4e felt more epic to me than it did in 1e, 2e, or 3e. But 4e doesn't work so well for quick, easy "side" encounters. I'm not complaining (much), just observing...

    At this point, I'd settle for some way to just give them my money. But here we are a month after their "launch", and their website still only permits order to US locations (despite claims on Facebook that this was fixed), and they still don't reply to any correspondence whatsoever. I should probably be happy that this situation is saving me $500, but I'm more annoyed that WotC issued a product...

    I enjoyed both of those articles -- a great summary of the design thinking leading up to and during 4th Edition with plenty of supporting quotes. I'm looking forward to the next installment. I've run long-term campaigns for most editions of D&D. My personal experience with 4th Edition was that it allowed me to introduce RPGs to a whole group of fanatical board gamers. I'm not sure a less...

    Every time I scan the list of forum topics, I read this one as "Forgotten Realms Remembered Too Late". Every time! And just so I contribute something on topic, we've recently transitioned from a 4th Edition campaign (all the way to level 30!) and begun a 5th Edition campaign. Both the DM (me) and the players have not yet adapted to the switch between Action points and Inspiration. I'm not...

    Ah, I understand. I think the only non-5th Edition content available is the WotC/TSR content which was originally on the D&D Classics site, and WotC aren't bound by the DM's Guilde content limitations. But in the case of the Living Greyhawk adventures, I don't think WotC could publish those adventures themselves, because of the rights issues. I'd be very much in favour of them being released,...

    That would be really great, but requires two different WotC policy decisions: 1. Open up the Guild to Greyhawk content (this seems inevitable in time). 2. Allow content which isn't based on the 5th Edition rules on the Guild (this seems much less likely to me).

    I read through most of this thread before realising that it was more than a decade old. (I failed my Perception check.) Then I decided to check if there is a more definitive answer to this question for 5th Edition. It turns out that googling "darkvision mirror" gives this exact thread as the first suggestion. So, for everyone else who may have ended up here hoping for 5th Edition advice, I'm...

    This is a frustrating company. I'm definitely their target market for this product. I have enough disposal income to be able to buy this plus the low Wisdom save associated with the "D&D collector" background. But I have now twice attempted to contact these guys (via their own contact form) to enquire about international shipping. The first time, I got no response at all. The second time, I also...

    Hey, I'm still here :). My monster index hasn't had any love since 2009, and unfortunately it never contained the 1st/2nd Edition XP values, just the 3rd Edition CRs. You can pick up a slightly more up-to-date version of it here though if you want.

  • 01:42 AM - Rich Baker quoted benensky in post AMA: Richard Baker, author of lots of stuff!
    Rich, Also a Phillies Fan so you were my favorite WoC employee and now are my favorite ex-WoC employee. Will Sasquatch Games have a booth at Gen Con? Will you be there? If so, will you post your schedule at the booth on the Sasquatch site when you know it? I would like to get my 5E Primeval Thule Setting Book signed and talk to you about it. I was glad to be in on the 5E Primeval Thule Kickstarter and the more I look it over the campaign setting the more I like it. I am thinking of running it in the future. I was glad to hear you have more adventures and a Kickstarter coming up. Hope it is available at the booth if you have one at Gen Con. I f you plan to have a seminar there would you give me a heads up so I can schedule it on the 15th? Finally, if you plan to be at Gen Con do you want me to bring along some Philly/South Jersey stuff for you like Fralinger's Saltwater Taffies, Tastykakes or a Phillies cap? Nice to meet another Phillies fan! Yes, we will be at GenCon. We're in Booth 6...

  • 12:23 AM - n0nym quoted benensky in post Roll20 Updates To The D&D 5E SRD
    I am registered with Roll 20 and not part of any games. How do I access the 5e character sheet? It seems interesting and I wanted to play with the character sheet, but for the life of me I do not know how to get to it. Create your own game, select the "journal" tab and click "add : character". The character sheet needs some improvements though, because right now it's not as good as the community-made one. But it seems to me that they're not finished with it, so I'll hold on my critics for now !

  • 05:11 AM - Sword of Spirit quoted benensky in post New Year Unearthed Arcana Brings Back Those Old 2E Kits
    Why would they pick the Scout kit to revamp rather than an other? Wasn't there a discussion involving Mike M. discussing how to make the ranger more distinctive? I believe the WoC D&D team wanted to do things to promote the Ranger's specialty. Then, here the scout is introduced. This seems to intrude into Ranger's unique qualities. In fact, it looks like the scout/fighter is given a Ranger class feature. I think the reasoning behind it is that there are people who want a ranger without magic, and people who don't. With the except of 4e (and every edition has its own weird exceptions) ranger has been a magical class. D&D ranger = magical ranger. Say it with me everyone. But some people don't want a D&D ranger, they want a wilderness warrior or wilderness rogue. Okay, no reason not to you let have that. Hence, the Scout. Whether or not the Scout ends up meeting the needs of those who want it, Mike Mearls did indicate months ago that he thinks coming up with something like that (an non-ma...

  • 10:39 PM - chibi graz'zt quoted benensky in post RAGE OF DEMONS Minis From WizKids
    Thanks for these pictures. Where were they taken? Your welcome! I took these at San Diego Comic Con. Wizkids always previews their upcomming line of products at their booth, including the new prototypes for all their table-top minis, including Pathfinder. I dont follow PF, so I focused on taking pics of the D&D ones, which, gotta say, that beholder is freakin AMAZING!!

  • 12:11 AM - Jester David quoted benensky in post Who Makes WotC's Adventures?
    For what it is worth, this may help people understand the process between Sasquatch and WoC you can listen to this Tome Show Podcast: http://www.thetomeshow.com/e/gamer-to-gamer-rich-baker/ The WoC & Sasquatch part is between Minutes 29:50 & 36:00 Thanks, I was looking for that. I hope Mistwell gives it a listen too.

  • 06:57 PM - Morrus quoted benensky in post The City Under the Mountain - A D&D 5E Adventure!
    I think this is a good deal. 220 pages of original content for $17.00. That is why I let Morris know about this. Sorry! Forgot to thank you in the post. I'll add it in now; but you have to promise to stop calling me "Morris". :) I think we've given him his biggest day yet, according to Kickstraq.
