  • 07:31 AM - Coroc mentioned Jacob Lewis in post Darksun Version 4.0
    Jacob Lewis That would be another idea, but i still like my solution more, unless you would rule that inferior Magic weapons would not have to make two dice rolls. It has to be analysed statistically though. With a 2xd20 someone has found out a number which would reflect disad quite well it was -2 or so if i remember, so i guess 2 die rolls for weapon damage would result in about a -1 which would be desirable. Has to be analysed though.

  • 05:20 AM - Jester David quoted Jacob Lewis in post Has Paizo ever talked about releasing their adventures in 5E format?
    There is a line between recognizing good long-term business decisions for a company and deciding what you want companies to make for you because you just really want it so bad. On the internet, that line is damn near invisible at times. True. But.... if enough of the fans want something, then that's probably something the companies should make. That the question of conversion comes up even on non-Paizo focused forums every six months should be a gauge of interest. Conversion is easy for anybody to do for themselves. For a company, however, that is an investment of time, resources, and production that could be used towards their own products rather than feeding someone else's. Right. That is true. But.... I'm arguing that the investment is particularly low for a conversion. Production costs are virtually nil for a PDF. The resources are also low, as the art and page assets are done. The InDesign page masters are finished. And the time in regards to the company is best measured in hours rather...

  • 11:06 PM - Whizbang Dustyboots quoted Jacob Lewis in post It's Not A Cartoon, But What Is It?
    Geeze! Why does everything to do with D&D need to be treated like the biggest surprise ever? Because marketing like that extends the conversation, meaning more people are likely to come across it and get hyped.

  • 01:11 AM - ParanoydStyle quoted Jacob Lewis in post Keep On The Borderline
    "My take" is the 4th Edition take. It was a season for Encounters. Then it became a long series of short adventures in Dungeon magazine. The keep (Restwell Keep) was fully developed and detailed in an issue of Dragon. And it all tied together. Look up the Chaos Scar. At least they tried something different. Like a lot of D&D fans, I spent most of the 4th Edition era either playing 3.5 or not playing D&D, so I would never have known about this if not for you. Thanks! I'll try to check it out. But aside from that, the DM that taught me how to DM when discussing this module brought up one of its major flaws when he described how when it was run for him, they spent most of the game robbing the Keep. In other words, they invented their own fun and played a 'Bank Heist' game, based on the problem that the best treasure and perhaps most interesting challenges aren't associated with following the path the module expects you to follow, but in robbing the good guys Apparently nothing has changed between...

  • 07:01 PM - roadtoad quoted Jacob Lewis in post WotC Considering NPC Stat Format Change
    I miss 4e statblocks. I didn't need to flip a single page or reference any other book to run an encounter. I'll get back to DMing when they get back to that. No! The game can't be easy to set up and run! Then people won't be able to demonstrate their superiority by running a 3-book encounter off the top of their head! Nothing is more fun than a monster with spells and a magic item forcing me to look into the PHB and DM's Guide while already holding my Monster Manual open!

  • 07:07 PM - Morrus quoted Jacob Lewis in post Could Critical Role launch their own RPG?
    You of all people should know how much work and effort goes into creating, designing, and publishing an RPG. True. But I don't know how difficult it is to make an animated show. It *sounds* a lot more difficult to me, but I've no way of gauging it.
  • 12:43 PM - Morrus quoted Jacob Lewis in post Could Critical Role launch their own RPG?
    "Where a bunch of us nerdy-ass voice actors used to play Dungeons and Dragons, now we play something else just like it but with rules you may not be familiar with." Just doesn't have the same ring to it. Well, that’s branding, isn’t it? People would say “I’m playing Critical Role tonight!” and folks would know what that means. Building a brand is hard, but if anybody in the TRPG space, CR would have the best shot at it.
  • 10:52 AM - Bagpuss quoted Jacob Lewis in post WotC Considering NPC Stat Format Change
    I miss 4e statblocks. I didn't need to flip a single page or reference any other book to run an encounter. I'll get back to DMing when they get back to that. The idea to have an all the information to run the combat encounter only take up one page or at most a centre spread was really helpful for a DM, even if it was probably a pain for editors/writers and page count.

  • 02:27 PM - Bolongo quoted Jacob Lewis in post Sneak Peek At Ghosts of Saltmarsh Maps
    I thought so, too. So I pulled out my original copies of the module to compare. The details are almost identical down to the contents, size, and number of each room. But there also enough subtle differences to realize that the Dyson maps are, in fact, not just scanned copies of the originals. Huh. I mean, they even have the artifacts typical of scanning an old copy (some dirt, weak lines, and the like). But if you say so. That's really disappointing, I agree.

  • 02:31 PM - lyle.spade quoted Jacob Lewis in post Where's Our D&D Theme Park?
    Yes, a place for us to gather and argue whether if its set in Greyhawk or Forgotten Realms because nobody can tell the difference. "Its so generic!" Then constant speculation over when the Dark Sun expansion is ever going to open up, and questions why everyone ends up lost in Ravenloft land. Funny - I can see people melting down online over a supposedly inaccurately portrayed tiny detail of all this made up stuff. That said, I visited HP World in Orlando last summer and it (re)sparked my interest in Eberron. Being inside Gringott's made me think of stealing the entire look and layout as a Kundarak site.

  • 09:24 PM - S'mon quoted Jacob Lewis in post Looking for a sandbox module set around a village
    Sandpoint has the word "sand" in it. Just like sandbox! Featured in Rise of the Runelords, the very first and most iconic Pathfinder Adventure Path. It is also featured in the Pathfinder Beginner Boxed set, which is one of the best starter sets of any game system I've seen. And recently, Paizo released the lon awaited sourcebook dedicated to that most famous place in their game world. 105263 Looks good - pity IMC Nualia burned the place down... :D
  • 05:13 PM - GreyLord quoted Jacob Lewis in post Just realised I own more D&D 5E hardcovers than I do D&D 1E
    I'll see your collection of 5e bloat and raise you the phasing out by a fully operational collection of Star Wars Edge of the Empire and Age of Rebellion! Force and Destiny coming soon. Maybe. 105264 At the bottom of the middle shelf, are those Pathfinder Pawns or PoD, or what are they? Reign of Winter, Shattered Star, Rise of the Runelords all look to be one volume?

  • 04:12 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted Jacob Lewis in post It's a Good Thing D&D Isn't a Toy
    Man, a kid could dream… Back in the day, I had Warduke, Melf, the Titan, and the Carrion Crawler bendy toy. I’ve either kept or reacquired those, and they’ve since been joined by Elkhorn and Kelek. Still love those toys. What strikes me is how colorful and intricate their designs are, especially for being second tier. If only it were true... 105104

  • 09:19 AM - Zardnaar quoted Jacob Lewis in post 4E Fans Would You Play This?
    I find Star Wars RPGs get better the further it gets from d20 systems. FFG's narrative dice system is far superior for cinematic play that isn't bogged by power levels and character builds, which I find often detracts from storytelling. I'd also give the old WEG system consideration before another dressed-up D&D system. Let D&D do what it does best: D&D. 104824 I have a respectable D6 collection don't worry. Didn't get the ffg version as I have 2 I won't have time for 3.
