    There's a Kickstarter where the guy takes out all the spells that are almost never picked and converts D&D to 12 levels. Great idea on my opinion. My group of over 40 years has never gone past 12th level in our campaigns. I'm also interested in this! Closest thing I could find is the Low Fantasy Gaming kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lowfantasygaming/low-fantasy-gaming-deluxe-edition Is this it?

My group of over 40 years has never gone past 12th level in our campaigns. Link? That sounds really interesting. I've played higher levels, a couple times, but it was almost always as part of a "special story" or pulling established characters out of retirement to deal with a bigger threat -- I've let one PC ascend to god-hood and that happened at 12 level (and a ranger). I've just never found higher levels that interesting or fun, especially when the stupid-powerful spells come out (basically, 5th level+).

  • 07:46 PM - darjr quoted Matt S1 in post "DnDSports": Competitive Play With Prizes
    Started playing D&D in 1977 and this is totally not for me and in no way how I see D&D. But hey, if the young new players want this then knock yourself out. My friends and I benefit if this helps make the game more popular. I started playing in 1980. My very first game I was DM. And I remember competitive play, in fact some of my very first adventures had instructions for doing just that.

  • 09:49 AM - MNblockhead quoted Matt S1 in post Goodman Games To Resurrect The Isle of Dread
    Was not impressed by Keep on the Boarderlands. One classic version and one 5E version in the book is enough. Over priced book full of redundancy. I'll pass if this will be the same. Right. The book seems more for collectors and researchers than for DMs to use at he table.

  • 09:43 AM - Jhaelen quoted Matt S1 in post Gale Force Nine Sign Master License for Dune ‘Games’; Modiphius Designing RPG!
    The big question. Does this license allow them to reprint the classic Dune game from the 80s?Over at BGG (BoardGameGeek) it was clarified that Gale Force 9 has the license to create original, new games. It doesn't cover re-releasing the original 1979 board game. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing a board game in the vein of 'Tyrants of the Underdark' with a Dune theme. Regarding 'Fading Suns': This is a setting I really liked. I never got to actually play it, though.

  • 03:39 PM - Joerg Baumgartner quoted Matt S1 in post Conventions All Report Record Attendance
    Turnstile is so pointless. How many times someone goes outside the facility to eat or whatever? Really? Essen clearly started using that as some kind of weird measure once they saw Gen-Con attendance surpass theirs. Also explains why they don't want their ticket sales to be public. Essen Spiel is held on a commercial fair area, in the middle of nowhere on the outskirts of Essen. You need an exhibitioner's day pass to walk in and out freely, your ordinary day pass or pass for several days allows you to enter once on a given day and to leave whenever you want. Essen doesn't register names of attendants. To do so just for this kind of feedback would create quite a hassle with European data protection regulations. And for all of Essen being open to the gaming public, it remains a commercial fair, not a convention. There are moderately big gaming conventions in Germany like the RPC in Cologne, or smaller regional ones with up to a few thousand attendants, and local ones with attendances in the...

  • 01:24 PM - bayonetbrant quoted Matt S1 in post Conventions All Report Record Attendance
    Turnstile is so pointless. How many times someone goes outside the facility to eat or whatever? "Turnstile" at Origins is the total number of attendees on any individual day, added together. So if you buy a 5-day pass, you count 5 times in turnstile attendance. If you buy a 2-day weekend pass, you only count twice. If you buy a one-day pass and leave the building 6 different times for lunch, forgot something in your car, step outside for a phone call, etc you still only count once in the turnstile attendance. There's no actual "turnstile" at any door anywhere at Origins to track how often people walk through the doors, there are just security folks checking at the door to make sure everyone's got badges on.

    The big question. Does this license allow them to reprint the classic Dune game from the 80s? I still have that. I had the original (or perhaps it was the second printing) with the "Sting" box cover. Then I found the French version in a game store in Germany and snapped it up. It's a great game. Hard to find folks to play with though, even with the English translation of the rules.

    PAX Unplugged, which is just tabletop games. First year was in 2017 and it was great for it's first year. Felt about the same size as ORIGINS. I’ll see if I can dig up some attendance figures next time. Edit - apparently they don’t give out those figures.

    Turnstile is so pointless. How many times someone goes outside the facility to eat or whatever? Really? Footfall is a useful measure. It measures traffic rather than attendance, but that's not a pointless figure. Essen clearly started using that as some kind of weird measure once they saw Gen-Con attendance surpass theirs. Also explains why they don't want their ticket sales to be public. Gen Con's turnstile is higher than theirs, too, so that theory doesn't work out.
