Introduction:
DM in NW Georgia - 5e currently
About Me:
Started playing back in highschool in the mid to late 80s. When my high school friends moved away for college I was lucky enough to start another group of friends in to the fantastic realm of roleplaying. 3 of us have been playing pretty much ever since with breaks here and there and swapping up DM chores as needed. Played mainly 2e, 3e, 3.5e, and now 5e with PF thrown in to replace 4e, but also includes a bit of Marvel superheroes and other game systems as well.
I enjoying painting minis when I have time but pick up the plastic minis as well.

  • 08:10 PM - Koren n'Rhys mentioned EthanSental in post Mentzer's Epic Worlds of Empyrea Kickstarter Launches For 10 Game Systems!
    I'll be interested to see how it all plays out, for sure. I'd love a BECMI box set, but the price is too steep for my blood, unfortunately. It does seem ambitious, yes, but Frank seems to be trying to do it right and get lots of help. Some hefty pledge levels there though, for what you seem to get. YMMV. EthanSental: Darlene was the artist who did the big two poster hex map of Greyhawk from the original folio and box set - HUGE nostalgia factor for new maps by her. And just to point out, Tal'Dorei was a single hardcover book, I believe? This will be more akin to the old campaign box sets from TSR - multiple booklets, poster maps, etc. So much more expensive to produce.

  • 06:57 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted EthanSental in post Ghosts of Saltmarsh: First Impressions
    I'm hoping it looks better in person, but yeah, I haven't been feeling the latest special covers so much. having looked at at the special FLGS cover, man I canít get the thought that it looks like a high school art piece by your friend who draws weird stuff all the time.

  • 05:34 PM - epithet quoted EthanSental in post Fantasy Grounds Unity Kickstarter Has Launched
    I believe this is the Unity version...at least the FG forum announcement makes it seem that way....Doug might swing by and clarify as heís active on the forum. Looking forward to it as I know Carl has been working on FGU for a bit and like the weather and fog of war. Thanks Doug! This is absolutely the Unity version. The current program will continue on, by the way, as "Fantasy Grounds Classic."

  • 07:33 PM - Haffrung quoted EthanSental in post WotC Considering NPC Stat Format Change
    I might have missed it if you mentioned it elsewhere, but got an example rpg game or publisher you mention above so I can see what you mean? Iíve mainly played D&D, pathfinder, some osr games and various superhero games back in the day and just curious of the easier content you mention by other companies. Thanks! Savage Worlds campaigns use a concise writing style with flexible approach (my experience is with the Savage Worlds of Solomon Kane). Deep Carbon Observatory (an OSR adventure) uses a concise writing style and flowcharts. Stonehell Dungeon and the Maze of the Blue Medusa are megadungeons where essential content is presented in single-page graphical format for each level or area. For the most part, these are small companies with designers employing innovative layouts. WotC certainly has the expertise and the resources to integrate some of these innovations. But it's clear to me that they see that as hurting their market of non-playing readers. The reasoning seems to be th...

    Mine came in and it is a various treasure trove of D&D art and history....already enjoying it at first read! Thanks again for the heads up for the sale....easily worth the price and even more so on sale. Same here, mine came last night, and I stayed up way too late looking and reading through it...

  • 04:12 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted EthanSental in post B&G's Sinister Silver Edition of Ghosts of Saltmarsh
    For me, I'm terrible when it comes to drawing and making props, it'll give an experience that I'm otherwise completely lacking. The last time I tried the whole "use tea to make a weathered piece of parchment," it did not turn out...right. I was thinking along those same lines Ralif.

  • 07:55 PM - Staffan quoted EthanSental in post The New D&D Book Is Called "Ghosts of Saltmarsh" [UPDATED!]
    Iím not a big fan of monsters that come out in the 3rd or 4th book of monster cause like in pathfinder and even older editions of D&D, these monsters are less used, fringe and werenít popular or good enough to make it into the earlier books. Monster books are an odd duck. Usually, the mechanical quality of the monsters increase as an edition gets older (because the designers get better at making monsters), but the quality of their concepts go down (because all the good ideas got used early).

I am glad that WoTC is doing them like this though and have them tied to the adventure/book, handful of monsters, naval stuff...mix of everything instead of a 100% book of monsters in a bestiary that only has 5% that Iíll use.....new format works for me as a DM and as an enthusiast! I really liked the loose leaf 2E Monstrous Compendiums. I still have all of them in one huge binder. I really miss some of the detail thats since been omitted from 3E-5E, especially the ecology & habitat entries. The Spelljammer MC had some cool monsters, the one that acted like Alien from the movie was great. Killed more than a few PCs with that one. Think I even took out a whole party.

    Iím for a Saltmarsh update no matter how itís updated!Me, too! Especially if they do the whole 3 module arc which was excellent!
  • 12:32 AM - Jay Verkuilen quoted EthanSental in post Pages From The Upcoming Nautical D&D Book!
    Greyhawk fans would be upset if they used Saltmarsh. I could be mistaken but I believe Saltmarsh was retrofitted to Greyhawk. If I recall correctly it was very loosely situated in Keoland but the original module was pretty setting-neutral, like many of those early modules. This map shows the locations, most of which I recall from the WoG boxed set, though many of them seem pretty sketchy to me in terms of the actual modules. For instance, Keep on the Borderlands was always a BECMI module, as was In Search of the Unknown and thus more properly in Mystara anyway. These had a connection but are set on opposite sides of the map.... Isle of Dread wasn't a demi-plane, it was where Mystara was introduced! So there were a lot of ret-cons even back in the day.

    I should drink some coffee when waking up this early before posting, my apologies for the snarkiness above. Being tired and half asleep means I need to be aware of things that normally donít bother me, might and not fire off replies before thinking them through better. Sorry DQD! not a problem. at least you did not call me a shark like someone already did on this site just because I put some stuff on the DMsGuild :D
  • 09:51 AM - quoted EthanSental in post Pages From The Upcoming Nautical D&D Book!
    Did you buy the Ravnica book after the same statement and it was opened on the DM guild for you to make money off of? obviously it was not opened because of my statement. it was opened mostly to allow wotc to make more money off of it without any additional commitment. they did not even release support material for authors, differently from what they did in the past for Forgotten Realms, Eberron and Ravenloft.

  • 03:01 AM - Enevhar Aldarion quoted EthanSental in post Now You Can Have A D&D Notebook!
    Why would anyone want a notebook with stats and lore about a single D&D creature in it? Seems pretty gimmicky. I really canít see the point of this product at all. Product details list a 480-page count, so 60 pages per notebook. Then, for example, if the first 10 pages are all about the monster on the cover, that would leave 50 blank pages for whatever, including a DM writing down a campaign that revolves around the monster on the cover. Besides, don't the monster sections of these seem basically the same as the detailed monster sections in Volo's Guide to Monsters? Or the old Monster Ecology articles from Dragon? Though it is still not something I would likely buy. The big, fancy journal with all blank pages is more my thing. :) Depends on taste, some keep it simple with the green, blue, black Mead notebooks for keeping notes or some would rather have these with visuals of D&D related art....Iíll take the art please! Yeah, let the others keep the plain, boring notebooks that make it look l...

  • 02:51 PM - vincegetorix quoted EthanSental in post A New D&D Book in 2019: Acquisitions Incorporated Dungeon Manual!
    Happy birthday Vince! Iíve used the villains from FR as the antagonist (especially the old 2e heroes and villains lore books) but tend to only have then interact with heroes like Elmister, Khelben, or Piergerion as a quest giver figurehead and that very rarely. You donít have to use Acq Inc as a name from the upcoming book but if it helps you and your players with how to set up a adventuring business like it, youíll get some use out of the book without worrying about canon. :) 1) Thank you a lot 2) I'll wait for the critic after release, but if its like GGtR, I'll probably get it. I feel like most settings (FR in particular) could benefit of having better rules for Faction/guilds/Big Corp for players to join. I stated converting the major factions of the Sword Coast to the model of Ravnica's guild membership but then stopped until I decide if I want to create a setting from scratch first. Ravnica in itself looks fun, but I wanted to run some published adventures in it and most of them do...

    Much of the controversy has been overblown but Mike has said some things that are, at best, incredibly tone deaf. He also seems to hold unpopular opinions about trans-gendered people, which I disagree with. He certainly has a right to express his opinions, but as a businessman, might want to keep those opinions to himself and close friends and off twitter. As I understand it he said some stuff out of ignorance rather than malice, and apologized once a trans friend explained things to him. So while Mike and Jerry may put their foots in their mouths on occasion, they do seem like guys who are willing to be educated. Gonna have to read up on that before deciding whether or not to purchase. I have doubts that the dnd5e team would be so closely linked with these guys if they hadn't gotten better on this stuff, learned from mistakes, etc. I've been surprised before, but I have a hard time seeing Jeremy working with someone who is even kinda transphobic, for instance. Inclusivity is extremely important...
  • 05:08 PM - Polyhedral Columbia quoted EthanSental in post Robert Schwalb releases his version of Warlord
    Never played 4e so never got into the warlord class, was there a 3e or 2e class it was built thematically off of or a new class for 4e. The class sounds fun so Iíll probably check it out for only $2.49. 3e Marshal (?)

The class sounds fun so Iíll probably check it out for only $2.49. The only real antecedent for the 4e warlord was the 3.5 marshal (in the mostly ignored Miniatures Handbook), and some portions of the classes from the Book of Nine Swords (mostly those that used White Raven Manuevers).
