    Oh, I am keenly aware of the dastardly macro lense! I always think I have painted well until I get the figures in a photo tent. We call it the "two-foot good" paint job. ;) Interesting - is the price point of the Pathfinder miniatures significantly higher?

I tried to watch the show. I tried to like the show. I wanted to be in on the water cooler talk about Thursday night... Alas, streamed games bore me to tears.

    It is a little older, but the tutorial over at Massive Voodoo has one of my favorite references for painting black: Massive Voodoo Tutorial Giovanni, an excellent painter, has a master class tutorial on painting black power armor: figure mentor tutorial Also, if you use Facebook there is a group called 'eavier Metal, which is a lot of top notch painters who are very helpful. Good luck!

    I would drop heavier hints that vital information/clues are available in the city for them to complete their mission. Killing the child would rob the players of even having a chance at a successful conclusion as they have made the rescue a priority. Use that priority to entangle them in the city's politics and factions.

    The key is to have everything properly represented in terrain and miniatures! Just kidding - that's just me... I agree with you OP. As you say, obvious dangers are going to dominate the initial impressions of the encounter with all of the visible details coming after facing the danger.

    Do you enjoy 5e? If the answer is yes, then there really is no reason to learn an older edition. I always try to run the new edition. The excitement and player base around a newer edition are going to mean it is much easier to find a game and players. 5e is booming right now - if you like it - play/run it and do not waste time that could be spent playing learning an older edition. Now, if...

Where I love to invest time is preparing for play. A lot of my enjoyment comes from painting miniatures, preparing scenery, creating props, designing maps, and making other play aids.

    I have always had a rewarding time running public games. I only DM for the most part, but I love meeting new people and seeing different player approaches to the game. I mostly run at conventions, but have also run some games at game shops. I would always choose my home game over a public game, but public games have their own benefits.

    This is going to sound counter-intuitive, but invite more people and make it bigger. Set-up convention style slots and have people run multiple games at the same time. I do it, I have a couple of good friends who do it, and I will say from our experience 10-12 is the absolute worst numbers range. It is really too many for one big table, and too few to get multiple gaming going typically. Keep...

    I second @pogre's sentiments. Some people don't take notes - one group is at the point that I just make hand-outs for them. Not for everything mind you, but if they find a letter with important information, I hand it to them. Clues to a puzzle, person or trap that they are likely to encounter sometime during the same session - they are on their own. Buy them a $0.99 folder or notebook - back to school sales should be on. :D

  • 12:56 PM - Yaarel mentioned pogre in post [Homebrew] − Elf Ability Scores
    pogre Personally, I like the extreme lifespans of the Elf. In reallife, we are entering into a new age of medical technology that seems poised to radically lengthen the lifespans of humans. (Who can afford it?) Entertainment about the long lives of vampires, the time lords of Doctor Who, and so on, are in some ways exploring the meaning of this kind of change. The 1e Elf lives around twelve centuries. They are highly magical, and it is certain they would use their magic research to figure out ways to prolong their lives as long as possible. That said, if an Elf is more than a 100 years old, then they are probably already beyond Level 20, in Epic Tier. There probably needs to be an in-game explanation why these huge populations of Epic Elves dont hang around in Material World, doing whatever they please. Part of the explanation might be, an Elf is only considered an ‘adult’ at the age of 100 years old. That is when they gain their ‘adult name’. Perhaps, what that ...

    This is part of the reason why I love 5e in general and the DMG in particular. EDIT: I'd also love to see randomly-generated (perhaps I should say germinated?) adventures, using the tables in the DMG. Oooo. Randomly germinated adventures. I like that! Thanks pogre for the XP, you officially changed my title from something sweetly druidic to Grandfather of Assassins. ;) I'm sitting down to do another one of these random dungeon/adventures soon. I have a loose idea for a mischievous brownie's workshop, but we'll see where it takes me. Any requests as far as level or theme?

Explain what you want to do with your site and find out. That said, it may actually be best to just look at other fan sites to see what they are doing and not doing and use that as a guideline. If you email them with an "outline" of your site and intentions, they may be forced to say "No", simply because otherwise it may actually look like they are giving you permission to do "what you said"...and unless you are EXTREMELY verbose in laying out what *exactly* will be in it, they may err on the side of "No" just to cover their legal buttocks. Me? I'd just make the site, going by the law. Leave the company out of it. If they want to get involved later on and say "Hey, love your site, but our legal department has issues with your treatise on Mind Flayers (which are TM to us). Please remove it from public view.

But not Pryor and Wilder and "That's right, we bad, we bad"? Of course there's no reason I can't put Pryor and Wilder *on* an atomic-powered train... be a shame if I didn't actually. I definitely need more detectives & cops. Namely versions of Ponch and Jon, Jim Rockford, and the paramedics from Emergency - damn I need to write up that whole hospital. What a fun campaign you have cookin'! It's been good so far. Even the part where the players trashed most of the next arc *before* the start of last session!

  • 11:18 AM - Morrus quoted pogre in post Why the hate for complexity?
    A lot of my enjoyment comes from painting miniatures, preparing scenery, creating props, designing maps, and making other play aids. To me, that's just a different type of "back-end" play. I wouldn't enjoy painting miniatures (I've tried it - not my thing) but I would enjoy crafting an awesome NPC. I enjoy game design - the mechanical part of it - more than writing the prose. I imagine that's linked to it.
  • 09:55 AM - Vicent Martín Bonet quoted pogre in post Age of Sigmar's Cover Art Unveiled
    I can say, as a player of the tabletop battle game, that the Order "good guys" far outweigh Chaos in their competitiveness. Normally "bad guy" armies (like Dark Elves) are now considered good guys. But they are really not, though? There's a larger percentage of tournament winners in order but it's because they represent a larger spread of factions and the player base. On a faction by faction level, virtually all factions sit at 40-50% winrate, based on tournament data. The factions that comprise dark elves are *not* good guys. They are part of order, which doesn't mean they are """good""", and most of the time they are so by sheer realpolitik and convenience. And that's without getting into the fact that a Grand Alliance, or its factions in some cases, are balkanized snake pits of opposing interests that just happen to hate the other snake pits a bit more. Plus there's a strong emphasis on monstrous/mega-powered creatures instead of normal fantasy tropes. So instead of wood elves wit...

  • 10:38 PM - Immortal Sun quoted pogre in post A whole new world....
    IMC - I am very much on board with what Morrus advocated - learn about things while adventuring. I teach history and love making campaign bibles, extensive maps, etc., but I realized a long time ago players mostly do not care. That is, they do not care until it effects them (their PC). I love the idea of a story like Mad Max: Fury Road where so much of the world is conveyed through little things throughout the film. I endeavor to do the same kind of introduction to my campaign. Example: DM: You buy the armor from the Dwarven Armorsmith and he bows three times. Player (90%): Cool! That jacks my AC! I'm off to the dungeon. - End of conversation - OR Player (10%): Does my character know why the Dwarf would bow to me three times? DM: It goes back to the times of the Metal Wars... If I'm honest 10% is probably a bit high. When I was younger it used to bother me, but now the details of the campaign are something I am interested in, and I don't bore my players with the deta...

  • 07:33 AM - Olaf the Stout quoted pogre in post How Many RPG Books Do You Own?
    I sell systems I have not played in a year with rare exceptions. I own almost everything for 5e. I own everything for WFRP 2e and the new WFRP rulebook. I own a few books for Ars Magika. So I have a few dozen books. Purging my "collection" on a regular basis is a cathartic release for me. Now terrain and miniatures on the other hand.... How many painted minis do you have in your collection? I think I’ve seen you paint over 100 minis in the time I’ve been following your painted minis thread.

  • 04:31 PM - Blue quoted pogre in post Die from Two Dice - use polyhedral dice to ‘make’ new dice
    Had a girl in the D&D club I sponsor show me her new d120s. I'm a dice geek, but even I had to ask, "what's it for?" She showed me a chart where a single die roll from this monstrosity replaced every conventional die roll. A bit cumbersome, but cool nonetheless. Factors of 120 - 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 5. So we can do d4 (2x2), d6 (2x3), d8 (2x2x2), d10 (2x5) d12 (2x2x3) and d20 (2x2x5). We can't do d% with a single roll, though we can just roll, rerolling for 101-120. Still, with that many sides is it easy to read?

I felt the d30 was not cool when first came out. Hey lets create a die and just redo the charts. It will be fun they said. THEY LIED! I will take them as presents but will not spend money on them.

  • 09:27 PM - Flexor the Mighty! quoted pogre in post Kris' all new miniature thread
    That's the same one I use. Purchased mine in the late 80s and it is still running strong. BTW - the design has not changed a bit. It its not broke don't fix it! Other than new straps mine has been great. 40 well spent.
  • 07:10 PM - Ferox4 quoted pogre in post Roleplaying Game Table Sizes
    A combination of these: I use a 4' x 8' 3/4 inch sheet of plywood covered in felt sitting on top of a large plastic table. I use a lot of terrain and wish I had a slightly larger table, but I'm a little too lazy to make it a priority. I didn't elaborate on my earlier post. I hinged the tabletop in the middle (recessed the hinges on the underside) to make it 4' x 4' when folded. Also the playing surface is covered in 1" x 1" squares (paper) with an acetate cover for dry erase use. If I were to do it again I would simply use some dry erase grids to eliminate the acetate (tends to wrinkle & tear over time).

  • 09:50 PM - Parmandur quoted pogre in post tail wags dog: streamers want to say 'aaargh' so we are getting a pirate adventure
    I'll agree to disagree. I don't think your perception matches the decision-making process through out the history of the game. Was my statement that streamers should have an influence on releases super obvious? Perhaps. I'm not sure it is axiomatic and I thought it was worthy of being acknowledged. So, there are somewhere in the neighborhood of 7,500 distinct streaming games, which if we assume ~5 people per group means streamers account for ~37,500 people, before you consider fans, which is going to multiply that number many times over. The audience for the game is the audience for the streams, so of course the company is making products for the audience of the game.
