    Not sure I want to track damage to shields (dents) in detail. That seems *more* fiddly than even Pathfinder 1. Isn't this supposed to be an easier, faster, and streamlined version of the game? If so, I'm not seeing it. Most hits won't dent. It's not like tracking HP. When you get hit for more than the shield can take you check off a box. I don't see it as being very complex.

If so, I'm not seeing it. Agree. I like what I see but there just seems to be a unnecessary layer of mechanics like dents, spell points, touch AC which look like they would overly complicate things.

    ...my wife requested we go back to Pathfinder... As marital quarrels go, you seem to be blessed. :o [Yes, I understand this was not a quarrel, my quip just sounded better that way.]
  • 07:30 PM - The_Gunslinger658 quoted techno in post Returning to D&D 3.75 er I mean Pathfinder
    For players, Mathfinder is awesome, for DM's it can be an administrative nightmare. Believe me, I DM'ed 3.5 for a couple of years and it really started to bog down in a numbers game as the players went beyond 10th level. One encounter could last maybe 2 to 4 hours, thats alot of time that will not advance the story at large. On the other hamd, if I had nothing prepared for that night, than wasting 2 or 3 hours on one encounter worked out perfectly lol. Be patient with 5E, sooner or later WoTC will start releasing splat books that will make your players happy and drive us DM's nuts. Scott I love D&D 5e because it is an absolute dream for a DM to run with little prep. However, after our 5e session tonight (Storm King's Thunder), my wife requested we go back to Pathfinder. I asked her why. She explained: I love buying and using powerful and diverse magic items. We have all of this gold in D&D and nothing cool to do with it. My cleric in D&D is weak and does not have a wide variety of co...

  • 05:08 PM - Tony Vargas quoted techno in post Is D&D becoming TOO popular (More DMs Needed)?
    There seems to be lots of people who want play (most with no RPG experience) because of watching games being played online. I don't think I can take on another group and so others will have to step up and DM at some point. It takes a while - probably years, possibly never - for a new player to acquire the skills from experience to be a good DM, though there is always the odd prodigy to make everyone else feel bad about taking so long. ;) It's just a sort of natural life-cycle, when enough* new players come into the hobby, you get a DM shortage. I'm not see'n it as bad as you are as 5e has also attracted plenty of returning fans, a fair proportion with the DMing chops to do a good job of it. * more than 6, say. ;)

  • 10:32 PM - Valetudo quoted techno in post Is D&D becoming TOO popular (More DMs Needed)?
    I recently had several couples in our neighborhood ask me to DM a game for them. I am running 2 separate groups to try and accommodate everyone. Few have ever played before. Yesterday, several more neighbors asked if I could run a game for them too. So, I am looking at starting a 3rd game. Our church youth group leaders asked if I would run a one-shot D&D game for their teens as an activity. Maybe this is just a fluke, but I cannot believe how popular D&D is in my area. There seems to be lots of people who want play (most with no RPG experience) because of watching games being played online. I have been playing D&D for 37 years and I have never seen anything like this wave of interest in RPGs. I don't think I can take on another group and so others will have to step up and DM at some point. I am wondering if anyone else is having more requests from friends to play than they can handle or if this is just an isolated situation.

Wow, times have really changed. As for the topic, I think there have always been a shortage of DMs -- it's just scaled up a bit now, and maybe amplified by the dynamics of more fluid or temp players coming and going. Especially if you do AL. It's not so bad for the classic "home grown" group where all it takes is a single person who's willing to invest the time and effort to preparing the session, because once established those groups are pretty solid. It's just harder for the random "PUGS" like you mention because *everyone* is new. I think maybe the genre needs some kind of breakout paradigm shift in how it brings new DMs into the fold, honestly. Starter Sets just really don't cut it for a lot of people, because they'd rather learn by example rather than be the one diving head-first into the unknown...

  • 07:43 PM - Reynard quoted techno in post Would You Buy an AP converted to 5E vy Paizo
    Fans frequently post conversion notes (monster stat blocks, trap conversions, alternative treasure, etc.) without mentioning Golarion. Seems like it would be possible if you knew what you were doing. The DMGuild has a very specific user agreement that relates directly to the use and reproduction of IP. I am not sure what use a conversation document could be that did not directly reference an AP and the Paizo trademarks found therein, but even if one could manage to put one together it would be a simple matter for Paizo to claim (rightfully) that the seller was trying to profit on Paizo's IP and get it shut down.
  • 07:02 PM - Reynard quoted techno in post Would You Buy an AP converted to 5E vy Paizo
    I have wondered if enterprising individuals will sell conversion notes on old Pathfinder APs on DMs Guild. It seems like it would be possible. That would be a C&D waiting to happen. Stats in APs are Open but the APs themselves, Golarion, etc... are not. I mean, I guess someone could post a document titled, "5E Conversion notes for Quest Avenue: Elevation of the Symbol Rulers" but I think the contortions to get away with it would ultimately prove fatal. The only one that could do it would be paizo itself and frankly if they were going to they would create a special agreement with WotC -- and would have likely already done so.

  • 04:45 PM - ehren37 quoted techno in post Quests of Doom 2: Six New 5E Adventures from the Necromancers!
    My understanding is that Center Stage paid FGG a licensing fee to use their IP to make miniatures and then Center Stage failed to deliver. How is this FGG's fault? They kind of screwed us backers out of getting product by nuking the Mortal Arrow deal because they wouldnt get their cut of sales. The Tome of Horrors kickstarter had run out funds and couldnt deliver. Another backer and owner of Mortal Arrow offered to buy the molds, greens, etc and basically give us store credit which could match any funds we put in. It wasnt perfect, but at least we could get something, the artists who made the greens could be paid, and the sculpts wouldnt go to waste. FGG nixed it because they wanted a cut of every figure sold. The deal fell through, and everyone got hosed. But hey, at least FGG got their 15% license fee on zero sales! I'm not even sure why a license would be needed, since it seems they just swiped monsters under the initial OGL and republished them.

    I found them here: https://web.archive.org/web/*/necromancergames.com. That was awhile back and I haven't verified that they are still available. Awesome! Exactly what I was looking for. Much obliged.

    I found them here: https://web.archive.org/web/*/necromancergames.com. That was awhile back and I haven't verified that they are still available. I just tried that on a random date, and was able to download an old web enhancement. So...seems to still work, at least in part!

  • 03:19 PM - Gretkatillor quoted techno in post The Clean Sheet
    This sheet is pure awesome. Thank you for making it. The only problem I am having with it is that the "Levels" tag under "Classes &" gets all scrunched together when I print out the sheet from Acrobat Pro. You're welcome. I tried to replicate the problem using a Windows PC but couldn't. Have you tried printing with the latest version of Acrobat DC? Please let me know if that fixes it.

  • 03:52 PM - Thunderfoot quoted techno in post 5e's underwhelming releases
    Even though I believe D&D 5e is the better system, Pathfinder is still cranking out the best adventures and this is where D&D ultimately needs to be able to compete. I disagree, in that adventures are not always the be all and end all of a game. Back in the day DMs were encouraged to make their own, I still do, so for me, modules are a non-buy to begin with. I prefer supplemental material with good solid rules that don't break the system (3.X I'm looking at you), that don't constitute glut, and that are completely optional. Honestly, other than a DM Screen and Character sheets, there is nothing past the core books that are needed (of course a Fiend Folio and some more Monster Manuals in the future are always good).
