    My house rule is adding allegiance (race, country, religion, family, guild, brotherhood, cult, clan, tribe) because groups need cooperation to survive. Even criminal societies need some rules. Powers with alignment key can hurt enemies with same alignment but different allegiance, for example a drow cleric vs a orc shaman. I also allow allegiance with opposite alignment, for example a zealot...

    Dungeons can be the right place for a horror movie. The walking dead, a necromancer lich and the traps by Jigsaw or from the movie Cube. Everybody die but the final girl.

    I dare to bet we will the influence of last generation of videogames in the future pencil-and-dices RPGs, and the gunners will be an example of this. Haven you seen the gunner from the game "Lost Ark"? You can get a idea about this. Other reason to not use firearms is they are too noisy for adventures in enemy zones where you don't want to be discovered. A shot and you are listened in a mile....

    In the city a gun is easier to carry, but in the country or a wild zone a rifle could be used most of times to hunt animals or to kill predators. In a fantasy setting cannons aren't necessary if giant crossbows with (alchemical no-magic) explosive arrows could be used in the battlefield. And the the lich could curse all this dungeons with an area effect what doesn't allow firearms to shoot. ...

    Let's imagine with only a simple catrip like a match in the right, or wrong, place, and then the powder keg, or the barrel next to the canon and....... BOOOOM! bye, bye, cowboy! Other options could be throw a stone with a magic rune of teletransportation to send squads, or animal packs, illusory magic to create lure, or screen as smoke grenades to hide soldiers.

In the RPG you can allow the multiverse/parallel universes to be almost canon. Can you imagine the possibilities to create new stories? A total reboot. You could tell a story about a...

    There is a good reason to not touch Greyhawk and Dragonlance yet. D&D needs the right movie adaptation to be the new Star Wars. It had to be the perfect blockbuster. I would bet Warner Bros have got great plans but they have to learn to touch the right key. This means a possible retcon could happen, but some fans don't like changes in the lore. They have to be careful to avoid a "jump the...

  • 10:58 AM - Doug McCrae mentioned LuisCarlos17f in post [13th Age] Should I play up the conflict between Law and Chaos?
    LuisCarlos17f That seems reasonable under a nine alignment system. Good, Evil and Nature are the three most important factions in D&D-world, with a possible Cthulhu/Tharizdun/Far Realm as a fourth. Under the three alignment system I'd place Nature as neutral. This is a different approach to Tolkien, where nature is very clearly good and the forces of evil, represented by orcs and Saruman, are strongly anti-nature.

    This picture is a true classic of fantasy art. We can't mention Dragonlance without remembering this picture, full with this special glamour only geek fans can appreciate. Dragonlance in the hands by the right movie producers could be a great blockbuster and a fabulous hook to attract new followers. I bet Warner Brothers would love to use this world for a new cinematographic saga but I am afraid they aren't found the right formula. My theory is Wotc is waiting because they want a Dragonlance movie, a good movie, in the cinemas before to publish the 5th Ed. * Do you think a uchronias (alternative timelines or parallel earths) about Krynn should be allowed to be canon? * But the fifth age was a "jump the shark". And it isn't easy to add new things (races and classes) from post-2nd editions. I always think about how you could take the three books of The Chronicles, the intistial books of The Lost Chronicles, the various bits of Tales and Meetings Sextant that occur within and around ...

Well Hasbro and Netflix just announced a new transformers show that's directly tying in with it's current toyline. So I think we have two examples of collaboration now. And yes I'd quite like a rebooted D&D cartoon.

    A classic work, even if it stiff Tas and Flint, two of my favorites, while putting Tryhard Edgelord Raistlin up front. Bringing Dragonlance back as an official campaign setting and as a movie has some hurdles, I think. I think thereís no world where they do anything but the War of the Lance as a movie or movie series, if theyíre going to do Dragonlance. But thereís an awful lot thatís come and gone since then. Does the setting focus on the War of the Lance era, thus making said alternate timeline, or does it go with where Dragonlance last left off, and create a disconnect between the movie setting and the game setting? Crucible 7 managed a similar situation with LOTR pretty well, but LOTR is perhaps a different case.

    I think there is a good reason for a return of Spelljammer: Hasbro toys. In the right hands it can be a blockbuster like the reboot of "My little centauress: cuteness is magic". Mystara is also "Red Steel" and "Hollow World", but also the setting for the famous 90's arcade of D&D. A good agreement with Capcom and.. voilŠ! A completely new toy line for a brand that has never had a toy line before aimed at a generation that has no idea what it is, and a 20 year old arcade game. And because of that they should open up Spelljammer and Mystara to the tabletop players. I thought you said a good reason? ;)

    Song of Ice & Fire is like Lord of the Rings, and to a lesser extent, Dragonlance. Good, great stories, but closer options for a spin-off with your own PCs. To play in Westeros is better to create a mash-up with your favorite RPG, or at least with a system your players are used. * A off-topic question. If my PCs is an archer with a fire arrow and I shoot it to the wildfire over water and I destroy Stannis Baratheon's fleet. How many XPs reward are for me, or are for the crossbower-warlord gnome who gave the order? If it was D&D its a milestone (level up), AD&D 2E bonus xp for kewl/campaing climatic thing, 3E/4E do whatever. The DM did set it up for you to do that. You could be in for a windfall of xp in 1E or BECMI but even then you only get 1 level and 1xp short of the next one. At the end of the battle either way levelling up (or the equivalent) would be on the cards IMHO.

    In a fantasy setting cannons aren't necessary if giant crossbows with (alchemical no-magic) explosive arrows could be used in the battlefield. Such a crossbow had to be gigantic to have the same force of a cannon and thus basically immobile. And when you already have very advanced warheads you switch to blackpowder rockets and not to cannons anyway.

    We can't avoid the classic confrontation about realism vs gameplay. The trouble is firearms are cheaper than magic... Are they really though? There isn't a lot of sign that being a wizard is more expensive than being a gunslinger. and if gunslingers are allowed then they would replace the hand-to hand or no-ranged combat classes (paladin, monks or barbarians) It took a very long time in real life before armies without melee soldiers dominated battlefields. I keep firearms out because I don't like what they do to low level play where firearms increase the lethality of the game in ways that aren't so great. But once the heroes are heroes, well a firearm isn't any bigger of a deal than a wizard with a wand. My way of keeping things out is to point out that in a world with only four elements, there is no reason that chemistry works anything like our own. Anyone that decides to invent muskets, usually discovers that in a world with a 10,000+ year written history, this has been tried ...

My hypothesis is Dragonlance will be a CGI teleserie, but with so many changes what it will be almost a reboot. Guardians of the Galaxy worked very well with a mediocre story. It's the characters and their interactions that are important.

    There is a good reason to not touch Greyhawk and Dragonlance yet. D&D needs the right movie adaptation to be the new Star Wars. It had to be the perfect blockbuster. I would bet Warner Bros have got great plans but they have to learn to touch the right key. This means a possible retcon could happen, but some fans don't like changes in the lore. They have to be careful to avoid a "jump the shark" effect. So, just to understand, in your opinion the producers still have no idea about which setting has to be used for the D&D movie and for this reason Greyhawk and Dragonlance campaigns are still not updated for 5E?

    If you want to be David killing Goliath you can't look as Sancho Panza. Iím pretty sure Mirt the Moneylender looked almost identical to Sancho Panzo. He survived Undermountain! What a character looks like is not a problem. Anybody can choose to look like anyone else. Though all halflings look like hairy fat little men is a problem. The revolution started with Elija wood. Letís just hope we donít ever get half-halflings.

    FWIW: lightning lure is one of the SCAG cantrips. Also, aren't all four of those cantrips (the others being green-flame blade, booming blade, and sword burst) based on 4e swordmage powers? Great catch! And yes, they are! How is the name: hexblade, duskblade or swordmage? Iíd go Swordmage or Spellblade, I donít like most other names for the concept. So why not use Wizard/Bladesinger as your class? because even with the SCAG cantrips, itís still 90% wizard. The Bladesinger is fun, but it doesnít have access to some of the things needed to make a solid gish that is singularly focused on magical melee combat with a weapon. Hexblade is pretty much the closest thing, right out of the box. It does damage and has access to utility, but doesn't really fully fill the swordmage's "I have 15 magical weapon powers that all do different things while teleporting every round" role as much as simply dealing some decent damage with eldritch smite while replicating some of the utility of wizard spells. I mis...

    If there is a new book of Oriental Adventures for 5th Ed, the ninja and the samurai should be base classes with the sohei, and I would add the option of maneuvers like the ones by the martial adepts from "Tome of Battle: Book of nine Swords" (crusader, warblade and swordsage). Some concepts should be base classes or archetypes (an optional list of class features). The subclasses are like wearing the same dress with a different color and other fashion accessories and somebody would wish to feel wearing more exclusive clothes. It's not going to happen. There's no need for those to be base classes, just like there's no need for a "knight", "spartan", or "dragoon" base class. Given that we also have subclasses for the ninja (way of the shadows monk) and the samurai, that also spells a big nope on these things being base classes. Sohei (which in the past was nothing more than a martial class with divine trappings) should be a paladin oath if anything.
