  • 08:01 AM - Saelorn quoted The White Sorcerer in post Let's Look At Some Monster Stat Blocks For Pathfinder 2
    Except that was (and still is) a huge problem for me in 3e and Pathfinder, since I don't play as much as I DM: Monsters having feats that I would forget existed, and if I did remember them I would have to flip through the Player's Handbook to see what they did. Pathfinder made it worse by having even more feats and giving more of them to everyone. The 4e style was a blessing.I guess it works if you're a full-time GM and don't already know how the player stuff works, because it means you only need to learn the monster stuff. For anyone who goes back and forth between playing and GMing, and who already knows all of the player stuff, it's an additional barrier to actually running the game. The absolute barrier from nothing to GMing is smaller, but the relative barrier going from being a player to being the GM, is much larger. Although to be fair, it probably would have been prohibitive to try and make monsters as PCs, given the over-all increase in PC complexity between PF1E and PF2E. The monsters-as-...

  • 08:54 PM - Obryn quoted The White Sorcerer in post Do We Still Need "Race" in D&D?
    I just see racism as race-based prejudice, no institutional power required. I have too many white-, Hispanic-, Korean-, Jew- Indian-, ________-hating people in my (mostly black) family* who have little or no such power. Put differently, institutional power makes racism easier to inflict/observe, but it isn’t a necessary prerequisite. An impotent racist is still a racist, in my book. About a decade ago, Ta-Nehisi Coates (who is, by the by, a giant D&D and comic book nerd) said, "America has lots of racism, but very few racists." That has stuck with me. The idea is that the bar for personal racism has been raised unrealistically high - so high that in 2017, many or most of the nazis marching in Charlottesville would have told you with a straight face they're not at all racist (...and that they have friends from all cultures and that you're the real racist for even bringing it up). Anyway. I think it's important to remember that the term has a lot of meanings. The institutional definition (which ...

    Hence why I said it has no place outside fantasy. In D&D it's fine since, unlike Earth, most worlds in D&D have multiple races. Yeah, so this conversation is about what it's called in earth-books that are written and published in the real world. Mordenkainen can call it whatever he wants; this is about Paizo and WotC trying to be better than they have been in the past through tiny, incremental changes.

  • 11:05 PM - Caliburn101 quoted The White Sorcerer in post Do We Still Need "Race" in D&D?
    The concept of race is pseudoscientific nonsense that doesn't have a place outside fantasy. Wrong. The Human Race. Race as a reference to insignificant genetic, appearance and cultural differences is an outmoded term, but we are talking about FANTASY races here. Outmoded for inter-human discussions about ancestry - sure. Still relevant to made up races from Scifi to Fantasy - yes. The article is conflating the two and saying that fantasy has to drop the term because it is thought that because the word racism has race in it, that humans should drop any use of it when talking about each other. The fact is, from the beginning, D&D and other fantasy rpgs described humans as a single race. If anything they were ahead of the times, and have been in no way outmoded or become out of sync. The article sets up a fallacious 'truism' and then conflates the error with a question about whether we should all abandon the word race when talking about elves and dwarves and orcs. It doesn't stand up to examination,...

  • 06:55 AM - Scrivener of Doom quoted The White Sorcerer in post News Digest: PaizoCon 10 Announcements for Pathfinder and Starfinder, Star Trek Adventures Gets Assimilated, and more!
    Going by that description, Ultimate Wilderness will be same old, same old. A new class, archetypes, feats, spells, yawn. Not even a passing mention of something potentially interesting like new subsystems, unless the druid sects go beyond fluff. I imagine its juxtaposition with a genuinely creative, innovative, and interesting new product line makes it seem arguably more boring than it would normally be. That said, I'm amazed these sorts of products are still selling - I looked at some of the recent player guides and was underwhelmed by the absence of interesting content - but they must be selling otherwise Paizo, which is run by much smarter people than TSR was, wouldn't be publishing them. Then again, towards the end of 3.5E, I remember seeing the announcements for Frostburn, (the desert one), and Stormwrack and I thought they would be similar sorts of duds- instead, they're all books I use to this day even though I run 4E.

  • 10:19 PM - modiphius quoted The White Sorcerer in post Check Out Modiphius' Star Trek Miniatures!
    What uniforms are the TNG guys wearing? Crusher, Yar and Troi look like they're wearing original TNG uniforms, but what about the dudes? Also, no Wesley? Boo. They're accurate for the intended time period (2371) just before the events of Generations which is when the rpg is set (though you can set it anytime you like). There's more minis to be revealed yet too ;-)

    What uniforms are the TNG guys wearing? Crusher, Yar and Troi look like they're wearing original TNG uniforms, but what about the dudes? Also, no Wesley? Boo. They're Late-DS9/TNG-movie-era uniforms (gray shoulders, red/gold/blue undershirt), but for some reason they have pronounced vertical lines not evident on the real uniforms.
