    There's a range of different campaign management tools available; some free, some not so. RPG Encounters is a free web app designed to work with and sync between all your devices. I hadn't heard of it before, but the creator sent me a hand-written letter to tell me about it, so I could hardly not take a look! The app currently works with four game systems: D&D 5E, Savage Worlds, Stars...

    I too came back to D&D after decades away. Stopped in the late 80s. Never played 2e, 3e, or 4e. Came back with 5e and am loving it. I found that playing in some Adventures League games at your friendly local gaming store, if you have one near you, is a great way to ease into the rules and keep your rekindled passion blazing.

    This. There are some characters, such as those that are exceptionally wise, witty, threatening, evil, good, in ways that I could never convey convincingly. 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.

    If you publish on DMsG, you grant a perpetual license to others, including WotC, to use your work. Artwork, I believe, is excepted.

    The GM should always be free to say that something doesnít apply. That said, think of it like comic books - people die all the time only to come back later. The only limit is a (semi) plausible reason. For the other question, itís not really the number of exploits which makes something powerful. It how they combine.

    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...

    They could always hire someone to create a ruleset for them. But why give out on the expansive community, network, and system that is D&D?

    I donít understand what that means. Itís a quote. But I am critical of the design and approach of the prospective new core rules, and think they will have real challenges in maintaining their sales status of the last decade. But *that* is not what you said. You said 600 pages was bad design. You were talking about the format of the book. If you donít like the actual game, thatís a...

    Running the recently kickstarted 5e version of Rappan Athuk, a massive mega-dungeon. That's the only TTRPG campaign gaming I can fit in these days. Other gaming are mainly board and card games and the occasional pick-up one-shot TTRPG.

    If it is a hex crawl and survival-themed game where hunting can easily become part of the encounters, I use a mix of encounter tables, skill checks, and perhaps combat. The encounter table will tell me what is in the hex. But instead of rolling for a random encounter, I'm using it to tell me what creatures are likely to be encountered. In a survival based game, I may have a separate flora and...

    And a lot do. But who cares? We can only talk for ourselves about what we enjoy, and I have to admit that I really struggle with your remorseless negativity. Canít we just talk about the cool stuff we like, rather than constantly tearing stuff down? Weíre 120 posts into the thread. We must be past the ĒSTD boo!Ē stage by now.

    I think STD is excellent. Itís the only show other than Gotham that I get excited about each week right now, and probably will be until Game of Thrones returns. Itís important to understand your personal tastes are just that. They are not shared by everybody.

    Well, in case you didn't know (which I know you do, as I'm very familiar with your posting history, but this is more for the benefit of other readers) both those sites have coordinated a negative campaign against Captain Marvel based on the lead character being female since long before the movie was released. And the article you linked to? Doesn't contain what the headline says is contains. ...

    The audience theyíre targeting isnít the 5E audience. Itís the folks who want something more complex than 5E. Thus complaints that itís more complex than 5E are kinda missing the point. They could make their version of 5E, but why would anybody buy it? They need to do their thing, not somebody elseís thing.

    Cursed Earth delves into Mutants in much more detail. Psionics, I believe, will be focused on heavily when Judge Death and Anderson show up and we detail the Psi Division a bit more. The Tap shouldn't be that much of a challenge to four 6d6 characters. I've used them a fair bit in my games, and haven't had that happen. They are quite tough, but rolling 6d6 (average roll 21) vs. its very low...

  • 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!

    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 Ė 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 theyíre advertising another Kickstarter and the one you backed still hasnít been delivered yet. Iíve seen updates like that do nothing but get backers of the original campaign angry. However, Iím sure thereís 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.Ē 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 Columbusí Origins Game Fair 2018
    It doesnít 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. Thereís 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. Iíve 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 donít 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.
