    I came looking for this. Flying Snake swarms will destroy a 1st level party. I have a party of PCs that still talk about the snakes in hushed tones at level 11, lest they appear without warning.

    Much of the material I by is for "lonely enjoyment." I buy more than I have time to run. But if I can enjoy the art and writing (and this includes the crunch -- well designed rules are fun for me to read about), I'll not regret my purchase. The art, writing, and general aesthetics of 5e played a huge role into me getting back into RPGs and selecting 5e as the system to use. I really love the 5e...

    I've done a lot of solo game with my sons using DnD or No Thank You Evil with either me or a son as a DM and it is always fun. With my regular adult group, there are rare instances where only one person can make it. As the DM, if it makes sense based on where the party ended up last game, I will run a solo.

    Some of my campaigns work this way. I will decide on a setting and set the parameters for what character races and classes are allowed. But in many campaigns, this included, I discuss with the players what they want to play and we try to work things out so each player can play a character concept they are interested in, so long as it isn't overly unbalanced or that it does not detract from other...

    True, most of the time. We are playing Rappan Athuk, which is in the Lost Lands, which is a kitchen-sink campaign-world like Forgotten Realms and Midgard. But the dungeon of Rappan Athuk provides the sense of identity far more than the characters, few of whom are likely going to enjoy a full four-tier career and long life...

    "Race Spam" is more of an issue for Adventurer's League. For a single campaign with my 5-7 players, it really isn't an issue. Generally, adding another variant of "elf" is less of an issue than adding Dragonborn, who do not fit into many campaign environments.

    For those who are interested, the player read about the "star elf" or "twilight elf" in some Forgotten Realms book. He had no idea of the mechanics. I created a homebrew race in D&D Beyond based on the suggestions made by ad_hoc , above. After that and some e-mail back and forth, he went with Eladrin instead.

I can take my paper minies off their bases, keep the bases in a tray and have many hundreds of paper minis organized in envelopes and stored in shoe boxes. They just store much better without permanent bases. But each to their own. I kinda agree with your point about just having to cut the bases, but...

    99% of the time the damage type won't matter, so you can deduct the SOAK from the total. The STR bonus applies to his base damage, not to the exploit, so it goes to the bunt damage should that info be needed. The times it will matter are if the target has SOAK to only blunt or only fire, in which case it could only reduce those portions of the total.

    Generally speaking, SOAK (and immunities etc.) have to apply to all damage types. The non-SOAKing of armour is slightly awkwardly phrased, though, I'll admit! Basically, if you have *been* poisoned (gas, food, atmosphere, etc.), armour isn't going to help you. If the poison is on a weapon, then sure, armor will help. It's all about the delivery system.

    Is there no discussion about the campaign before you started playing? No session zero? Much of what you list is common and more a matter of group preference than a "bad DM." The only thing that would make these due to "bad" DMing would be if the DM somehow misled you on what kind of campaign was being run. Random character generation is not poor house-ruling. It is a valid...

    If a character dies, I feel that the player should be able to start at a level in-line with the rest of the party. Generally, this will be one level lower than the lowest leveled living character. But what have you found to be the best way to handle the wealth and magic-item disparity? Do you attempt to provide the new character with wealth and magic commensurate with its level? If so, do...

    I missed this. This thread has become a epic discussion on the proper flow of the game that individual stories like this are getting lost. I agree with Grainger completely and I say this as a reformed DM who no longer uses critical failures. A "1" is just an auto miss/fail. Otherwise you have high level fighters with multiple attacks being more likely to fumble than a first level fighter.

    I make that 14 DEFENSE. 3d6 is 11. 4d6 is 14. SOAK and DEFENCE are two different things. DEFENCE is how hard it is to hit you. SOAK is how much damage your armour lets you ignore.

    The theme of the campaign is industry vs magic. I feel that removing either of those things pretty much guts the campaign.

    There's been an update for the prior job roundup (in the comments). Bloat Games has updated the details of the Tales from Vigilante City Vol. I anthology submissions in a press release here. The highlights are: + Reduced minimum word count. + Submissions deadline announced. + Tales From Vigilante City Vol. II announced. + Some details about the post-submissions process Thanks, Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer If you're a publisher that would like to share an RPG-related job opportunity, please contact me here. Sounds interesting. And plenty of time before the deadline.

    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.

  • 05:35 PM - Alzrius quoted Egg Embry in post Explore Friendship, Magic And Ponies In Tails Of Equestria Role-Playing Game
    All, Thank you for the kind words and suggestions. :) I'm interested in both the bestiary and the movie supplement because the core rules spoke to me. Anytime. :) Don't forget to check out the mini-scenario titled "The Gift Horse" that the publisher put out on their website a little while ago. This is in the same format as the two-page adventures that come with each of the Tails of Equestria dice sets.

  • 04:41 PM - DMMike quoted Egg Embry in post Gaming At The Kids Table With The Basic Hack
    MAJOR difference- The Basic Hack is roll=to or under Ability score for tests. The Black Hack is roll UNDER. I'd call that a minor difference, but it's a good catch. Little things like that can keep a game from flowing smoothly, especially if the players are used to a different rule. When rolling a d20 to hit, for saves, or other tests, lower is better (for all other dice, roll high) Attributes do not add or deduct from tests like 1e. For example, a 17 STR does not add +1/+1 to hit or damage, but it instead changes the target number that you roll under to determine success When dodging, if the PC rolls a natural 20 (a fail), they take double damage Armor has HP that is added to the PC’s HP instead of being a separate, limited pool or making them more likely to dodge The game includes the 5e mechanic for advantage and disadvantage Points like these make me think "adults' table" over "kids' table." Good review though - have you thought about posting it in the reviews ...

  • 05:15 AM - J.L. Duncan quoted Egg Embry in post Fight The Future With The Synthicide Role-Playing Game
    Ah, thanks for reviewing this! At Gen Con 50, a friend recommended this game. I picked up the quickstart and liked the idea of fewer rolls determining the outcome. It's on my list to buy! :-) Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer EN World All-Ages Reviewer The FirstFable RPG, Monster Slayers, Mouse Tails, Little Wizards, Hero Kids, Little Heroes, Dagger, and Pip System There was a number of things about this game I really liked. Mechanics and character creation are very simple; while the GM sections do a really good job of engaging the GM with a variety of ways to run the game. For being relative unknown indie publisher, this one surprised me. I haven't played it yet, but it's certainly on the list.

Check out: The FirstFable RPG, Monster Slayers, Mouse Tails, Little Wizards, Hero Kids, Little Heroes, and Dagger Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer If you're a publisher and have an all-ages RPG that you'd like to have reviewed, please contact me here. Not sure if you'd qualify it as 'All-Ages', but I'll mention it - No Thank you, Evil! While it is geared toward simplicity and kids, it's obviously meant to be played with the corresponding adults. Just thought I'd present it since I didn't see it in your list =)

    Saxon1974- That is awesome! How many Pokemon have they caught so far? :-) Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer Ha, so far about 9. I figured I had to use rewards they would like. I first used chocate coins (and still do a bit) but then crafted a story that all the pokemons had gone missing from the town so they had to go and find them. Since that, their excitement is through the roof; they ask me to play constantly.

  • 11:37 AM - Silver Moon quoted Egg Embry in post Gaming At The Kid's Table: Mouse Tails
    Did you run a module or was it an adventure of your own design? (And I apologize for the 20 questions over these posts. A little of both. Plots don't have to be overly complicated - usually just something that a young kid can relate to. I think we did one from the book about a potential monster under the bed and one of our own about needing to share on the playground.

  • 11:17 PM - Silver Moon quoted Egg Embry in post Gaming At The Kid's Table: Mouse Tails
    Silver Moon- That's awesome (about running it at the cons)! I'm curious now, when you ran it at the conventions, was it for kids-only or a mixed table? [/B] Kids only, however many parents were there watching. Essentially the Soft Toys are the heroes and hard toys are the villains. Depending upon the specifics of the toy chosen there are special feats (for example - Bears can give Bear Hugs, toys with wings get flight movement).
  • 10:20 PM - Silver Moon quoted Egg Embry in post Gaming At The Kid's Table: Mouse Tails
    Silver Moon- Thanks for the recommendation. Hearing that a game went over well with the kids is always a win! I'll check it out! :-) My wife and I were on staff in the 1990's for two different comic conventions (Total Confusion and ConMan). We ran "Fuzzy Heroes" several times at conventions. I believe that the RPG may currently be out-of-print, but I just checked EBay and saw that they had several reasonably priced copies of the basic book (plus some expansions).

    MNblockhead - Thank you! Hero Kids and adventures and board games and CCGs, anything designed for children that we can play and discuss. I want to look at more than just the rules. I'm glad I am not alone in that. :-) Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer I'm happy to provide comp copies of our After School Adventures or other books for your review. :)
