    Doesn't mean much. Once more reviews come in, I'm sure the average rating will level off around 4.x stars like all the other adventures.

    This is a problem with high-magic settings, not D&D specifically. Also, consider that when the spell list was created in AD&D, a 7th-level wizard was exceedingly rare. As in, maybe three-per-continent rare. And how did those wizards reach 7th level? By earning XP, which meant adventuring, killing monsters, and constantly putting one's life at risk (and cheating death in the process). The type...

    Has anyone suggested non-dungeon-based adventures yet? There are no doors, rooms, or hallways in a swamp. Put your party in open terrain and see how they fare. With really dense fog, their ranged weapons could become pretty much useless.

Or make the "reinforcements" a trap of some kind, like a rolling boulder or one of those spinning-blade things from Labyrinth -- something the party has to avoid.

  • 10:01 PM - Hussar mentioned Prakriti in post Sneak Peek At Ghosts of Saltmarsh Maps
    Sure, here: http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?604938-I-draw-the-occasional-D-amp-D-map /snip LOL Look at that thread you posted. Virtually every single map in that thread, nearly all of them, are oriented north to the top. Granted there's no compass rose on most of them, but, then again, lacking a compass rose, the presumption is always north to the top because that's the standard way maps are drawn. Anyway, like I said, this has got to be the absolute weirdest conversation I've ever had on En World. Azzy - you have not one, but actually multiple atlases where most of the maps in the atlas are not north to the top? Link please? Because, well, buddy, you found the unicorn. I'm not saying no map is ever done that way. I'm saying it's very, very much an outlier to not do them that way. Prakriti - WTF? Scary/foreign/unusual? Ooookay. I'll note that not a single person here who is so adamant to prove me wrong has taken up my challenge. C'mon, let's see these examples of RPG books where the majority of maps are not north to the top. Should be easy peasy for smart folks like you. You seem to be so sure that north to the top isn't typical or usual, so, let's get those examples rolling in. It's easy to make unsubstantiated claims and whatnot. Time to pee or get off the pot. Give me a SINGLE example of an RPG product where the majority of the maps is not oriented north to the top. http://www.quickmeme.com/img/d3/d38a9ea86a0911c1162382d6d50168753e1dfb0cd3eaabc3d4ae85bfc71ade93.jpg

  • 11:23 PM - Mercurius mentioned Prakriti in post 4.33 Years in: What Now for 5E? (and have we reached "Peak Edition?")
    I believe that 5e is nearing the point (perhaps a year and a half away) when it will reach peak popularity. Furthermore, I think that we will see a fairly dramatic drop in sales after that point. Thereafter, the edition will (I believe) sell at a steadily (but slowly) declining rate until the release of a new edition. Currently, 5e is doing very well. I suspect that any future losses of profit will be caused by dropping numbers of new players. My guesses could be completely inaccurate, but I am glad to be able to share them. Peak and decline is inevitable; the question is, can WotC stimulate later peaks? I would echo what @Prakriti said and say that the movie will impact this trajectory - and possibly stimulate a later peak. WotC has to be thinking about other ways to do the same, because at some point sales will start going down. On the other hand, maybe they find a way to turn D&D into the RPG version of Monopoly or, as someone said, Catan. No peak and valley, just an undulating plateau. 1982 was the peak of 1e. It was doing very well, but not as well as they had forecasted. And 1983 was the beginning of the decline. I don’t know about 5e. The current books seem to be doing well on Amazon and sales seem sustained. But growth cannot last forever, so it has to plateau eventually. But even then, when new player acquisition slows down, we’ll have a few years of declining but still good sales. 5e probably has quite a few good years left. But, I think we’re closer to the middle. I do think we’ve almost hit saturation where we have “enough” I question this idea of saturation and "enough" and have a theory about...

  • 11:41 PM - CleverNickName mentioned Prakriti in post Survivor Appendix E (5e) Authors- Ursula K. LeGWINS!
    Dausuul: It's a good of a strategy as any. And XP for showing your calcs! I maintain that my current strategy of culling off the weaker scores quickly is the best strategy for a rapid end because it reduces the number of contestants (N) and therefore concentrates the negative votes (the only votes that really matter) onto fewer and fewer targets. TL;DR: 20N outweighs -X in your formula, so I'm gonna attack that N. Prakriti: I understand that a lot of participants are spite-quitting because they can't handle their darlings getting voted off, but I don't think it's a foregone conclusion. (I mean, Terry Brooks was my darling and I'm still here.)

    Good catch. In that case, I'd suggest Port Nyranzaru, a settlement established by Amn. In the image, we can clearly see ships on the left-hand side (suggesting a port city), and the dress and architecture are somewhat Amnian in nature. Of course, it could also be a settlement that's new to 5E. Either way, I'm sure it's somewhere in Chult. From Greg Tito's tone and focus, it sounds like this might be the beginning to exploring some new setting material :) http://i.imgur.com/vuVCqjV.png And rawr! You called it Prakriti!

  • 11:20 PM - Hussar mentioned Prakriti in post Unearthed Arcana: Get Better At Skills With These Feats
    Both SkidAce and Prakriti have it right. Advice column. And, it's not so much of a case of I haven't seen it. It's I can't find ANY evidence of it. At all. If expertise was this major deal, you'd think that we'd have seen a few threads over the years complaining about it. But, pretty much nothing. It's passed muster with hardly a whisper. So, granting expertise as a feat shouldn't be an issue. I mean, we're talking about very high level characters who've not only burned one of their very limited feats, but also a couple of ASI's on whatever that feat is for, just so they can reliably do something that isn't all that powerful to begin with. I mean, for most of the lifespan of a PC, we're talking about a +3-4 to a single skill. Umm, yay?
  • 10:10 PM - OB1 mentioned Prakriti in post TftYP - Running Sunless Citadel
    Prakriti - Don't have my DMG nearby, does Slow Natural Healing preclude the use of Hit Die healing during a short rest? I'm actually worried that taking that away might be too much, though I do like the concept of using Hit Die for long rest healing. Might go with my own variant where you have to roll your Hit Die when short resting or long resting outdoors but get the max on your Hit Die if long resting in a safe, comfortable location. Mistwell - So it sounds like it may be plenty deadly enough without to much effort on my part! That's exactly why I'm having everyone come with back-up characters.

  • 03:38 PM - Mercule mentioned Prakriti in post Level 20 How?
    I think I had one campaign in 1E that made it to 20th level. Wait... That's a lie. The PCs were retired at 10th or 11th level, then we came back a couple years later and "advanced" them to 18th level, including making one of the PCs a saint (pre-demigod, from a Dragon article). It was fun, for a short run, but that's about it. In 3E, we made it as far as 15th level before the game system because unwieldy and overly complex. I narrated out the end of the campaign because everyone was starting to drag with the heavy mechanics. For 5E, we're playing LMoP and PotA, but we're extremely beer-and-pretzels because most of the players have kids (heck, one of the players is my kid) and lots of activities that often make scheduling an issue. The group isn't even 10th level, yet. From what I can see, I'll be ready to be done with the party after PotA and not really want to go any higher. I'll second Prakriti on AD&D. I actually liked it that way and appreciated the change in game focus. I don't really care to see what arch-mages can do in a dungeon crawl. I'd rather see the PCs start doing the mentoring and being the deus ex machina for lesser NPCs and/or troupe-style PCs.

  • 05:38 PM - AaronOfBarbaria mentioned Prakriti in post What is a Dex save doing?
    I agree with half of what Prakriti has said (the later half, to be specific). In the case of area effects like fireball what a dexterity saving throw is representing is adjusting your body so that you are shielding the lesser protected parts with the more protected parts - such as turning your face away from the directional source of the harmful magic, or (as the shield master feat enhances the ability of) getting your shield between your body and the magic. Much like how in real life if you can quickly huddle into your leather jacket, a gout of flame is likely to cause you less serious injuries than if you hadn't interposed your jacket.

    I don't know, a PDF doesn't sound "major AF" to me. "Major AF" sounds like something bigger than a hardcover even -- something unprecedented -- like Baldur's Gate 3 or a movie. If the PDF was for a setting that a large fan base has been asking for, it could be. It would also be major if it was for every old setting (TM) that they won't do. You might be right on the Baldur's Gate 3, it is just fun to speculate :)

    Yeah, this is not the planar adventure I've been waiting for.I'd love for them to do an adventure that spans the elemental planes. One that visits the City of Brass, the wind dukes of Aaqa, and so on. A 5e version of the Great Modron March would be cool too, and it's not like they haven't been teasing that since the core rulebooks ...

Apparently you could even play as a merchant in the Blood War and never even have to deal with the mess that is the Blood War. Other than the Mad Max vibes associated with the adventure, I also feel DOOM and even 40K vibes, and that's definitely something I want to explore further.

    Looks like the new Essentials adventure will take place in Phandalin too. Icespire Peak appears on the Lost Mine of Phandelver map, but I don't believe it's detailed in the adventure. It's not. I think it's only on the map because it's a map of that section of the Sword Coast, same with Baldur's Gate and Waterdeep, neither of which feature in the adventure outside of I think the party's originally hired in Waterdeep to guard the cart full of mining equipment that sets off the whole adventure... I always hoped they'd go back to Phandalin because that adventure is one of the best introductory adventures I've ever seen and the setting and NPCs are a lot of fun to play.

    Here's the cover (taken from the D&D Beyond YouTube link above): 106519Interesting that the symbol in the upper left corner is that of Bhaal, the FR god of murder and assassins. Now, that symbol is often associated with Baldur's Gate itself since the CRPGs with the city's name used it prominently (since Bhaal was an important part of the backstory to those games), but... there was a recent LYSK concerning Bhaal (and Bane and Myrkul) specifically mentioning they were active in Baldur's Gate. So I'm betting they will have something to do with the plot here...

Player crunch sells books. You don't have to worry about going out to your players to deny it - I believe this will be embedded in the Eberron sourcebook they are selling, not a general expansion like XGtE. (As a side note, I'm actually happy with the XGtE subclasses I've seen hit the table in the games I play. I don't want to derail this, I personally had more problems with the races in Volo's but even there is was inconsistant, not universally banned.)

    Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus doesn't have the same ring to it as Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, but maybe they're hoping that "Baldur's Gate" will draw more people in, particularly those who are familiar with the video games. It also seems odd to give equal prominence to a mundane human city and the Nine Hells. I mean, one of these things is a LOT more exciting than the other... Well, you have to start somewhere: also, based on my intuition after listening to Perkin's LYSK attached to yesterday's Dragon Talk, the whole dang city might be under threat of descending into Avernus. Which is Metal AF.

    There's no mastermind behind Dark Sun like there is with Eberron, so it seems unlikely. The only reason we got the Wayfarer's Guide was because Keith Baker continues to champion the setting. If Dark Sun had a highly respected and enthusiastic creator who was willing to do the work for them, then I'm sure WotC would arrange something with them. But that, as far as I know, is not the case.You mean like Troy Denning, who wrote the entire first series of Novels for Dark Sun and many other WotC D&D novels? Who as recently as last year was tweeting about how much he enjoyed people being enthusiastic about Dark Sun?

We'll see it sooner or latter.

I mean, I don't watch it, so even now I haven't; I've just heard about it in this thread. And honestly, if "I heard it online" is the equivalent of actually seeing something happen, heck, I have seen it all. Under that definition, I've seen murder, suicide, sexual abuse, justice win out, injustice triumph, the world end, aliens invade, conspiracies that control just about everything, and on and on. But I don't really think it is. I've been running games pretty nearly constantly since 1981, and have never had an affair tear a group apart. Maybe I just play with the right people. Maybe I have just lucked out. Or maybe this kind of thing isn't all that common, but it's disproportionately loud in online communities.
