    Are you looking for shorter one shots that can be played in one or two sessions? The following are some one-shot or just a few sessions adventures. I'm not seeing these in Roll20's marketplace though. Kobold Press is pretty good about having properly formatted digital player maps included in the PDFs. FGG adventures less so. I recommend Kobold Press's Book of Lairs (though you'd likely also...

    Finally had a chance to watch the most recent episode. I think this is my favorite from both seasons. I love getting away for big stakes and coming down to the more personal stories. I loved how the advance technology was a plot device that emphasized shared humanness across the centuries. Often, when I read ancient writings, it is the little details and personal stories that hit me the...

    There aren't, but I figure the NEW starship combat rules would work perfectly (they're very "Star Trek naval" style). You could reskin all the weapons easily enough.

    That last one is easy — the amount you charge for it is irrelevant. $1M or $0, the price has nothing to do with its legality. Though it might factor into the amount of damages, if you get sued.

That'll be a shame, as I really like him. He's more Kirk than Kirk! What are your current prevailing theories? What's (who is) the Red Angel? Is Section 31 dead now? Their HQ is basically a tomb.

    It’s not a question of just flipping a switch. PoD needs different files to the onscreen PDF. It’s actually quite a bit of extra work and reformatting, followed by an approval process at DTFPG’s end, and then ordering and paying for a proof. If they plan to change it at all, they’d have to do that all over again each time.

Trying to improv such character's talk would destroy immersion. But that doesn't mean that I have to settle with "I threaten him." You can describe the threat without having to act it out.

The only limit is a (semi) plausible reason. For the other question, it’s not really the number of exploits which makes something powerful. It how they combine. A thousand abilities gives a PC lots of versatility throughout any encounters...

    Well, to you, perhaps. But the question is what does a “setting” count as to Thomas Valley?

    The D&D logo, name, art, etc. aren’t OGL. You should probably remove those from the front page of the website if you’re using the OGL. No ads is definitely appreciated! :)

    From what I've read online, they want to make it more detective than action. I like that idea.

    Yeah. It strikes me every week. You can see every penny of the budget. The set design alone is incredible.

    Thomas Valley, GameHoleCon's Adventurer's League coordinator, is currently asking for volunteer DMs for the show in November. As part of the post he refers to "The premiere of an Epic event set in as yet unannounced setting" and "The premiere of adventures set in as yet unannounced setting". Ravnica was introduced in 2018, and Eberron support was added to the DM's Guild. Other than...

    James Ward, after whom the wizard "Drawmij" was named, is a game designer who worked for D&D's original pubisher TSR for many years. Amongst other things, he was behind titles like Deities & Demigods, Greyhawk Adventures, Gamma World, and Metmorphosis Alpha. He has agreed to write a column here on EN World recounting his memories of those years. When Morrus emailed me that EN World...

    Pretty much every dragon has darkvision. Treat it as a new draconic ancestry or variant. I don't think that darkvision is game breaking at all, unless light-resource management is a big part of your campaign and you are limiting races to those without darkvision, which obviously isn't the case. You wouldn't have missed it if that were the case. Just let him keep it and move on. Perhaps make...

    Or when Green Ronin released M&M and AGE, and then still worked with WotC? Or Sasquatch did similar? Or Monte Cook who left WotC and then came back for 5E and then left again?WotC doesn’t refuse to work with companies who release other books.

  • 11:03 PM - Nicholas Potter quoted Egg Embry in post Warming up to the Romance Trilogy: A Review
    Nicholas, Excellent review! This line is the clincher for me: "roleplaying romance can be a very difficult thing. Emotional vulnerability requires a great deal of finesse and care from all those involved". I need to read this for perspective on my own romance project, Love's Labour's Liberated - A 5e RPG Zine. Thank you for sharing this, it's on my list to grab! :-) Thank you, Egg Embry On Kickstarter: Love's Labour's Liberated - A 5e RPG Zine Oh hey, I saw a post on Reddit about that! Super cool to hear that I was able to help, even if just a bit. I hope you like what you see when you grab it!

  • 08:11 PM - dave2008 quoted Egg Embry in post RPG Kickstarter Zine Quest News – The Initial Seven Zines
    dave2008, This isn't quite what you're asking, but, of the 35 Zine Quests I'm watching right now, here are some goal numbers: Goal of less than $500 - 10 Kickstarters (all currently over their goal) Goal of $500 - 7 Kickstarters (4 currently over their goal) Goal of $501 to $999 - 3 Kickstarters (2 currently over their goal) Goal of $1,000 - 10 Kickstarters (7 currently over their goal) Goal over $1,000 - 5 Kickstarters (2 currently over their goal) 25 of 35 are over their goals already. Thank you, Egg Embry Love's Labour's Liberated - A 5e RPG Zine POWERED by the DREAMR, a PbtA RPG #ZineQuest That's great - thank you for sharing. I remember in one of our earlier post on Zine Quest that Kickstarter was hoping for low funding goals $1000-$2000 and it looks like the campaign is delivering! Keep up the good work!

    dave2008, Sean Hillman and I want to ask you about your zine and share it with the [EN] World. Please contact us Sean (here) or Egg (here). [Side note. It just occurred to me to use the "share it with the [EN] World" joke... I gotta sharpen my dad jokes game!] Thanks, Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer If you're a publisher that would like to share an RPG-related job opportunity in a future article or discuss your RPG crowdfunding project, please contact me here. Egg and Sean, I sent you both an update at the links you provided. Feel free to get in touch anytime and I will update you as I move forward. Thank you!
  • 05:08 AM - Bill Edmunds quoted Egg Embry in post Kickstarter, RPG Zine Quest, and Luke "Burning Wheel" Crane
    Yes, that's it exactly! :-) Kickstarter will give an additional promotional push, sites like EN World will write articles that share your work, and there will be more focus on RPG zines as a product during that time period. Can you explain what you mean when you say "Kickstarter will give an additional promotional push?" I've got a project I think will be perfect for this!

  • 12:12 AM - Olaf the Stout quoted Egg Embry in post RPG Crowdfunding News – Era: Lyres, Treacherous Traps, They Came from Beneath the Sea!, The Fantasy Trip Adventures, and more
    Olaf the Stout - Speaking strictly as a fan, I agree that publishers could mine their pool of prior backers, it's a logical and, in many cases, a welcome advertising tactic, especially when offering like products. That said, I joined several crowdfunding campaigns that over use that option so I become notification numb to their alerts. As a journalist, I'll keep your question in mind as I talk to crowdfunding publishers in the future. :-) Thanks, Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer If you're a publisher that would like to share an RPG-related job opportunity in a future article or discuss your RPG crowdfunding project, please contact me here. Yeah, I can see how it would quickly become annoying if they overdid it, especially when they’re advertising another Kickstarter and the one you backed still hasn’t been delivered yet. I’ve seen updates like that do nothing but get backers of the original campaign angry. However, I’m sure there’s a happy medium between never and every second day. Maybe one update when the project first goes live and a second update when there is 48-72 hours left as a last chance reminder.

  • 08:04 PM - Brian Lowe quoted Egg Embry in post RPG Crowdfunding News - Mythology Manual, Nibiru, The Wanderer's Legacy, La Dama Nera, and more
    ...ynamics, you and your party will have to be very careful about what is happening around you and what is hidden, twisted, in the darkness. The adventure is suitable for novice players like Awakened experts, the important thing is to know the setting of Awaken and be ready to take subtle actions or clash with unclean creatures. At the end of the volume there will also be a bestiary containing ten new creatures, with related statistics tables and special abilities, which will be added to Awaken's bestiary and can be met in this adventure or any other Awaken session. 'The Black Lady' is made up of 48 pages full of images, texts, tables and descriptions of game scenes designed as the original manual of Awaken, to give greater adherence to the basic manual.” If you like what we do here at EN World (the Forums, Columns, News, ENnies, etc) and would like to help support us to bring you MORE please consider supporting our Patreon.

    Excellent! It's a fun bit of gaming! I come up from Atlanta, and plan on doing it next year. :-) If you go, ping me (here, the Wanna-lancer link, most social media), I'd like to say hi in-person. :-) Thanks, Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer If you're looking for helpful tips and stock art for your RPG, check out CREATE YOUR OWN FANTASY RPG ADVENTURE - RPG RESOURCES BOOKS on Kickstarter (featuring James Ward, Lenard Lakofka, Rick Hershey, myself, and more). Will do!
  • 03:53 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted Egg Embry in post Check Out the Scene at Columbus’ Origins Game Fair 2018
    It doesn’t always happen, but sometimes the characters just really hit it off in the game and it makes the game that much enjoyable for all of the players involved. There’s something doubly amazing about seeing that role-playing alchemy happen with strangers. Sucks about the harassment. We all have a responsibility to call out that behavior when we see it and support those being subjected to it. I’ve been in the position of a DM having to say something to a player about the terrible creepy stuff coming out of their mouth. The sad thing was, I don’t think they understood why I did so, or how serious an infraction it was. The players had never met each other, but their chemistry was box office gold. Everything they said played perfectly to the other while shaping our adventure.
