    Have you tried removing Extra Attack ehile you're at it? Maybe attack rolls entirely? Just take 11 on all attacks. Much faster. Oh and get rid of pesky damage dice too. Over the Hill Gamer: It's possible Yunru is sarcastic here. If so, don't mind him. You have done nothing to deserve scorn, and I wish you good luck with your game :)

  • 01:41 PM - Jay Verkuilen quoted Over the Hill Gamer in post Unearthed Arcana Dragonmarks
    This is a bit off-topic and I am not faulting the views of this writer in any way but is anyone else tired of the petty racism of the D&D world? It's a potentially useful source of tension, but it's so frequently done that it risks being a tired cliche, like "all dwarves are irate alcoholic pseudo-Scotsmen" or "all elves are snooty magical tree huggers". I also agree that a lot of the time it's important to keep in mind that we play games for entertainment, so if the same kind of things that plague us in real life constantly show up in game that's not likely to be too fun. This was eloquently put when a friend of mine from grad school said, about Ars Magica, that he was taking a break from doing research... to pretend to do research. He mostly played Int-dump stat bruisers from then on out. ;)

    This is a bit off-topic and I am not faulting the views of this writer in any way but is anyone else tired of the petty racism of the D&D world? If I had a dime for every snide comment directed towards an elf or dwarf player character by another player character, I'd be a rich man. With all of the new races, it seems to intensify, especially if they are considered very rare races. I know such racial rivalries are part and parcel of some very influential fantasy literature but it becomes a bit wearisome to me to hear these views perpetually mouthed by characters. Most DMs feel compelled to express the shock of villagers when confronted by strange player races they've never met before and this often sounds just like common racism. I find such situations to be tedious and too much the case of art imitating life. My feeling is that any race played by a player should be able to walk into the village tavern without eliciting racial comments. I am not seeking a utopian setting but at the same time is there a ...

  • 02:56 AM - R_Chance quoted Over the Hill Gamer in post Star Wars RPG Delves Into The Clone Wars!
    it's difficult to discern much of a difference between these two characters' stats. Stray thought about that. They are both Jedi Knights / Masters. I'd be surprised if the system they both grew up in produced too many differences. The differences there are (Deception 4 for Dooku) strike me as a result of Count Dooku's turning to the Dark Side and his greater experience.

  • 11:31 PM - AmerginLiath quoted Over the Hill Gamer in post Creating a More Immersive D&D Experience
    I find music, decor, and scents to be distractions. A quiet, relaxing room with conveniently located drinks and snacks and a small group of interested, enthusiastic players who understand the spirit of the game are all you need for total immersion. And of course a good story. There’s also the fact that many of us have hearing issues that such conflicting sounds exacerbate. I’m “frequency-deaf” of a sort, so trying to clearly process music and voice together is nearly impossible (live concerts are a muddy wall of sound to me). Keep visual and auditory handicaps in mind (including “minor” ones) when planning out these flourishes, lest you get the opposite desired result.

  • 07:10 AM - aramis erak quoted Over the Hill Gamer in post How Long Before the Digital Dam Breaks?
    To be specific, the last I looked was when Zweihander was on sale for $4.99 on drivethru deal of the day. I am not particularly knowledgable about the economics of the RPG industry but from what I've heard it's pretty competitive. If you are making $7 from a book that took many months to produce you better be selling a lot of them, especially if it's a high quality product that is well-written, nicely designed, and beautifully illustrated. Most "new" products from major companies run half cover or higher for the PDF; several participate in "Bits and Mortar" - buy at your FLGS, your FLGS has B&M send you the PDF. Several companies, however, keep prices down to $10 or less for PDF.. The advice to new sellers on DTRPG is Pick one of $19.99, $9.99, $4.99, or $1... because those prices sell the best. I've seen corebooks priced in the $30+ for the PDF, tho', for several systems. big licensed games often charge 3/5 of cover for the dead tree...

  • 11:30 PM - Daniel Fox quoted Over the Hill Gamer in post How Long Before the Digital Dam Breaks?
    But the cost differential is big. I sponsored the Zweihander Kickstarter a couple of years ago and got the book and PDF for $50. The last I looked the PDF was going for $5. I don't see how a company can survive selling their work product for so little. Not if they are going to maintain high production values. Unfortunately, that is what you see now, a proliferation of companies with pretty low production values selling all kinds of total crap. At the same time, tactics by other companies to not produce PDFs aren't exactly giving the customer what they want. Hi there, this is Daniel, creator of Zweihander. Rest assured that the print, art, editing and writing qualities are well-within the margins for Zweihander Grim & Perilous RPG. There is certainly some sorcery behind the scenes to make this real (release schedule, excellent marketing, regular deals, print-on-demand offerings, smart social sharing, strict project management). Looking solely at Zweihander, we're at a little over 26K physical copies ...

DTRPG charges 30% for it's services, so that's $7 for the publisher. What do you expect that normally a print publisher get's for it's book? They sell it for 45% (or less) of MSRP to a distributor, add to that cost of printing, storage, shipping, etc. Unless your a large player, your not getting that much for your work. Look at some of the older formula's in the forum's publishing section for what's expected. Sure, there's a lot of garbage (but one man's garbage is another one's treasure), but...

  • 11:49 PM - Barantor quoted Over the Hill Gamer in post Get Ready To Pre-Order Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying Fourth Edition!
    What is the difference between Warhammer and Zweihander? Similar systems? I never played Warhammer but have recently played Zweihander and really like it. Zweihander I believe is a derivative of Warhammer with some stuff they liked. I have never played but own the Zweihander book and I've played 1&2E Warhammer a ton, I find Warhammer easier for new folks to understand. I ordered the basic book, nice that they give you the pdf ahead of the physical copy.

  • 11:09 PM - Tranquilis quoted Over the Hill Gamer in post Do We Still Need "Race" in D&D?
    That's pretty sad if they actually censor people for using the term political correctness. I know it's a term of the right and I largely disagree with the people who use it but still, it's a thing. The term is a legitimate expression of opinion. Heavy-handed censorship of legitimate poltical discourse is unfortunate. Your solution that these people should "stay out of those threads" is another kind of censorship. Political censorship is anti-1st amendment and anti-American in my opinion. It is a stacked discussion, to be sure. I honestly thought that, for example, “SJW”was an actual term used by social activists and not a pejorative. To throw out biased “articles” like these, and then control the responses of those opposed isn’t “fair”, and it is disingenuous if one is opening up the comments section for replies and responses. The quality of these posts (disguised as articles or news) is very suspect and biased. I wouldn’t open myself up to the liability of attaching my name (or that of a sit...

Political censorship is anti-1st amendment and anti-American in my opinion. I’m not American, or a “they”; and that’s also not what your first amendment says. But that’s by-the-by. If you have questions about the civil inclusive behaviour I expect in this community, take it to the Meta forum and I’ll happily explain it to you in no uncertain terms. This is not the place for it.

Political censorship is anti-1st amendment and anti-American in my opinion. Really? Grown-ups know better than this. Words have literal, dictionary definitions or meanings. Sure. And words have connotations they have picked up over time. The word retard has a very clinical, specific use when talking about those with mental illness . . . well, it used to. Now it's a slur. The n-word (gah, I can't even type it) also had a specific, non-pejorative meaning at one point in the past. Please don't use it today. This is how language works dude, and I think you know this. The literal meanings and...

It doesn't mean that private citizens who own or maintain a product or service owe you a platform.

    I view fantasy RPGs as a respite from the politicization of everything that is currently in vogue in our culture. Hear hear. Gaming is an escape from 'real life', and I cringe when I see certain topics pushed to the fore. ... and now I return to pondering the next adventure theme for my insensitive, bigoted, often misogynistic 'pseudo-medieval' fantasy world. Because that's where I want to escape to when running a game...
  • 07:42 PM - Dire Bare quoted Over the Hill Gamer in post Do We Still Need "Race" in D&D?
    I prefer Ancestry. I am not offended by Race but given the great number of meanings and controversy over its use in our own culture, it might be best to move on to something else. What I am offended by is the increasing tendency of this website to raise divisive topics and then censor the responses. I can tell you that I don't play RPGs as a way to increase my participation in the US culture wars. If you don't want to hear people's opinions then don't raise the topic. I view fantasy RPGs as a respite from the politicization of everything that is currently in vogue in our culture. Maybe I am insensitive but I don't come here to have my political views (left leaning) affirmed. Have to call BS on this. Morrus and the other moderators most certainly do not "censor" opinions on the site. What they do is block the insulting behavior of some bad actors. You'll find plenty of opinions in this very thread on all sides of the issue whether the term "race" is used problematically in D&D or not. The OP certain...
