  • 06:01 PM - Scrivener of Doom mentioned Barantor in post Atoms versus Electrons: eBooks and Roleplaying Games (Part 1)
    I never thought I would say/type this, but I've become an electrons-guy for almost all of my reading. Like you, Barantor, buying a smaller tablet - a Google Nexus - was the catalyst for basically switching over (practically) all my reading to ebooks. RPGs really started me on this track when I started filling out the missing bits of my FR collection with the first batch of PDFs some 15 or so years ago and the realisation, "Wow, I can search these!" I still enjoy a real book, but they simply cannot compete with the convenience of being able to read anywhere and also when the lights are off. Also, living in a Third World country where electricity can be unreliable, it's nice to know that even if I cannot charge the Nexus, I've still got a solid 4 hours I can read it at night.

    wedgeski: That's one of the reasons I particularly like the idea of having the PCs meet a lone orc who isn't interested in fighting. If they can get him talking, they can find out what to expect. So did both you and Barantor just make up the terrain as you went along?

  • 02:07 PM - Li Shenron quoted Barantor in post UA: Giant Soul Sorcerer
    Sorcerers should habe light armor proficiency and spear proficiency like in 3e. Spear proficiency would probably change very little, so adding it would have definitely been ok. Even having full simple weapon proficiencies like Warlock wouldn't really change much. The armor proficiency is a bit different. In my opinion the Sorcerer was designed (again) with the Wizard as a starting point, and in fact it has the same weapons & armor proficiencies. The Warlock has a slight bent on combat, hence the light armor and simple weapon prof, but also notice that both Wizard and Sorcerer have Mage Armor while Warlock does not. This is actually a problem for the Sorcerer, because Mage Armor is a long-duration spell that in most cases requires one spell slot to cover the whole day (and this cost is identical to both classes), but it actually also 'costs' one spell known, and that's a much bigger cost for the Sorcerer that the Wizard. In fact, the PHB Dragon Sorcerer offers a natural armor bonus, tha...

  • 03:51 PM - SkidAce quoted Barantor in post UA: Order Domain Cleric.
    My only thought is if this is a Law domain basically, wouldn't it have some abilities to counteract chaotic things? To me it screams more warlord and less cleric. See, I think (hope?) it was designated as "Order" instead of "Law" (as Law vs Chaos) on purpose.

  • 01:19 AM - guachi quoted Barantor in post It's Time To Pre-Order Your Copy Of Into The Borderlands
    It's a collectors piece, plain and simple. This isn't a collector's piece, though. What is a collector's piece is the actual module B2 Keep on the Borderlands. And there are LOT of copies of this module. It's not very hard to find. I got my copy for $7.50 shipped in late 2014. If you have enough money to buy this, you have enough money to buy the actual module.
  • 12:26 AM - Jester David quoted Barantor in post It's Time To Pre-Order Your Copy Of Into The Borderlands
    It's a collectors piece, plain and simple. I'm buying it because I want all the art in a book I can enjoy and I don't have the old originals (thanks mom :( ). You can get a print-on-demand copy of both. Both $5 but currently on sale for just under $4. http://www.dmsguild.com/product/17081/B1-In-Search-of-the-Unknown-Basic?it=1 http://www.dmsguild.com/product/17158/B2-The-Keep-on-the-Borderlands-Basic?it=1 They're often not hard to find used. You can get an original copy of KotB of $20: https://www.amazon.com/Keep-Borderlands-Dungeon-Module-Introductory/dp/0935696474/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1517268158&sr=8-1&keywords=keep+on+the+borderlands In Search of the Unknown is pricer: https://www.amazon.com/Search-Dungeons-Dragons-Module-Dungeon/dp/0935696040/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8 But you could probably find a cheaper one if you wait. I see lots on eBay.

  • 06:38 PM - Abstruse quoted Barantor in post News Digest: Empyrea Canceled, New Stranger Things Game, Warhammer 40K Comics, and more!
    It's a pity, I want Greyhawk to be modernized, but with all these old ding-dongs associated with it I don't think it will ever happen. Wizards of the Coast has been wishy-washy about new campaign settings, but I know Mike Mearls really wants to do something with Greyhawk. Dragonlance and Eberron may be higher priorities from a company standpoint, but I'm pretty sure Mearls would rather do Greyhawk.

  • 04:51 PM - Von Ether quoted Barantor in post Delving Into Worlds Of Dungeon Fantasy With GURPS
    This is a more "dungeon bash/crawl" setup with lots of powers. The characters end up feeling like 7-9 level D&D 5E characters, which is what I think they were going for. You can easily limit the points and still use the templates they provide for the classes though. This plays out of the box more like "epic fantasy dungeon crawl" than your normal low level starting PCs. I enjoy the box and with some tinkering and additions from other sourcebooks I could make up exactly what I want. Fair enough. I was just wondering if the base line had changed over the years. I can see how that could have happened as more and more advantages get added to the menu.

    It's stuff like this that is moving me away from 5E. Then you are very close to 5e, seeing how this is the first and only instance of "stuff like this", yes? Sent from my C6603 using EN World mobile app
  • 05:23 AM - dropbear8mybaby quoted Barantor in post Pre-Order DLC comes to D&D with D&D Beyond and Xanathar's Guide to Everything pre-order
    This can only be bad for the game. Public homebrew is bad for the game? What? It's public homebrew content which means it's only accessible through the Homebrew content interface on DDB. Having a problem with that is like saying that all and every homebrew content anywhere is somehow bad for the game. It's stuff like this that is moving me away from 5E. Bye-bye. No-one will miss you. It's basically just third party crap. And? What's bad about that? It's a minor incentive to purchase before it comes out. How is that a bad thing other than "you don't like it"? I don't think people will be wanting the Critical Role Campaign Guide to be AL legal or consider it core, and this is basically the same thing. It's not core and not useable in AL so again, what's the problem with it? Wow. That sure makes it worth paying for the same content a third time. What has that got to do with anything? If you don't like the product, why do you feel the need to comment on it? What effect does thi...

    It's stuff like this that is moving me away from 5E. I loathe and really dont like this kind of thing, but it will not influence my love of 5e's elegant system.

  • 03:35 AM - SkidAce quoted Barantor in post Delve into Critical Role's campaign setting with co-writer James Haeck!
    It all depends on the adventures released after, if there are any. Many first time DMs might buy this book and think they can use it but then if there aren't any adventures set in it they will have to adapt normal 5E adventures, which are already set in FR. Or write their own adventures. I think that is one of the GREAT things about Critical Role introducing d&d to a new set of players. It is emphasizing the create your own story style of play. I welcome hordes of new players with that idea in their heads.

Many first time DMs might buy this book and think they can use it but then if there aren't any adventures set in it they will have to adapt normal 5E adventures, which are already set in FR. I would be interesting to see what numbers are like for things like Adventures in Middle Earth that changed a lot more of the 5E gameplay around but have a very well known setting. Most popular 3rd party campaign setting? I'm not so sure, but we'll see. To my knowledge, there are no plans of releasing adventures for this setting. The goal of the campaign guide is to provide fuel for GMs to create their own adventures. Matt hopes to create more campaign guides for other continents on his world of Exandria, however.

I'd be willing to wager it's easily outselling that product. Most popular 3rd party campaign setting? I'm not so sure, but we'll see. It's higher on the Amazon charts than either the Pathfinder core rulebook or preorders of Starfinder. And preorders of Xanthar's Guide to Everyting. And that's just Amazon, and not the Green Ronin site where you can get a cheap PDF as well. And unlike other books, there's an ongoing show continually getting new viewers to sustain sales. Potentially with a new jumping on point looming, with all new characters.

    So it's high magic, standard races, mostly classic tropes but the big thing is social culture differences that mirror what a perfect real world is? Seems the only difference is the resurrection rules to make it a bit more risky? (which is added to lots of streaming shows to create onscreen drama) Not sure I'm sold, but I bet there are super fans of the show that will eat this up. Up to 30,000 people watch Critical Role when it live streams, and even more afterwards. If only a tenth of the audience buys the book, that's 1000 more people than backed the Kobold Press Midgard Kickstarter. (And viewship of older episodes gets as high as 100k.) This could easily become one of the most popular - if not the most popular - 3rd party campaign settings. It's your bog standard generic fantasy world. No new ground broken, no twist on the formula. But a lot of people want that very thing. Lots of new players were introducted to the game via the stream rather than a Realms or Dragonlance novel, and Exand...

  • 01:22 PM - AriochQ quoted Barantor in post The New D&D Adventure Storyline Will Be Announced On June 2nd-3rd
    I just hope that if they keep rehashing enough of the Greyhawk content that we get Greyhawk opened up for DMsGuild just like we had Ravenloft opened up with Curse of Stradh. I have been running in GH for over 30 years and recently started a grand Greyhawk project for DM's Guild if they ever open it up. It they haven't by the time I complete it, I will have to re-skin it, which would be a shame.
