Instead, to see what the latest updates are, simply keep an eye on the Pathfinder 2 news category. Everything is posted there first, before being added to this page.

Here's a quick look at the first two pages of that adventure! We'll be sharing more of it soon. Be sure to sign up to the 2000 AD RPG mailing listfor the latest alerts!

    Yikes, it's been a long time since we wrote that. I'd actually have to look at it again to remind myself! I think generally, the intention was to make it sandbox in an old-school way, so they *don't* have to do the various quests. They do them if they want to or if they feel it's right to. It's set up differently to a standard adventure in that it is very possible to meet the dragon unprepared.

    Maybe they're waiting for approval form the licensor. Sometimes that can take time (especially with a big licensor with lots of licensees), and you don't have control over it. That often applies not just to the final product, but also promotional materials (we have to run Judge Dredd promotional stuff past Rebellion before we can show them).

    If youíve succeeded in making D&D more suited to most genres than other games specifically designed for those genres, youíre a better GM than I. :) Classes and levels and zero to hero just donít work for Call of Cthulhu. And Iíve never seen a better investigative system than GUMSHOE. And for pure suspense, Dread has all beat. Thatís all just my mileage though.

There's this boilerplate sentiment that gets trotted out which claims D&D can accommodate any kind of roleplaying. It's so silly; of course it can't.

    Absolutely. I've always been a strong advocate of the fact that the rules affecting the way people roleplay. There are people out there who like to claim that your level of roleplaying has nothing to do with the ruleset you're using, and that roleplaying issues have nothing to do with system being used. I don't feel they are very observant people. :)

    I can only speak to what my players have told me. I have a blast running it, like I do any game. If pressed, I'd say AiME isn't "low magic", it's "no magic" -- because the setting defines the fact that there are only five wizards in the world. I suspect that TOR models the world better than 5E with the magic stripped out does.

    We're finding the AiME doesn't translate well to D&D. Taking most of the magic out of D&D, turns out D&D's not much fun. My players are bored by the idea of levelling up because it doesn't give them anything interesting. I think ToR probably works much better than D&D for that setting, though Iíve not had the opportunity to play ToR so I couldnít say. D&D was basically the 1970s version of...

    The DEFENSE column is the aforementioned points which you will be totalling. The CU and CPU columns are per item, like the rest of the book. I can see where the confusion arises - it's the "Cost/Point" heading on the cost column. It would be clearer as just "Cost" as it's per item.

    Yup, sounds like your custom "quantum computing" component is a bit imbalanced. A better way to get more CPU cycles is just add more computers. You only use the best e-DEFENSE score (you don't add them together). Note that while the e-DEFENSE of the computers in that book are half CPU, that doesn't mean that a new computer *has* to be -- there are some computers in other books which have...

    The online starship builder was done by a third party. I have no way to update it. You'd have to contact them (I can't get any response from them, but feel free to try!) Do you have the Starship Recognition Manual? It explains traits in more detail.Y ou can have two at any time. 1.3 errata? Have you travelled into the future? Which document are you referring to there? :)

    I doubt it. But maybe those from arctic regions have some skills and abilities related to that.

    CapnZapp, you are in danger of being asked to leave your own thread. You're being abrasive to multiple people and - equally importantly - are still trying to tell people what they may or may not talk about (and we've talked about *that* before). To make it clear again: starting a conversation doesn't give you *control* over people who engage with it. That is not how conversation works anywhere,...

    Today's Pathfinder 2nd Edition news update is a mixed bag covering Golarion's "infusion" (or "dusting") in the core rules, how the playtest process works, and the reasoning by the new Ancestry terminology. But, most importantly, we get our first introduction to the new elves and dwarves from the upcoming edition! Elf and dwarf by Wayne Reynolds Elves & Dwarves! Paizo's latest blog...

  • 05:55 PM - Morrus mentioned Neuroglyph in post The DMG: A CRITICAL HIT at 93.5%!
    There are three review scores on a product page. The first is the fan rating (the aggregate of a 1-5 score, plus the short comment reviews). The second is the critical rating, which is the aggregate of the full reviews by critics from sites such as iO9, boingboing, The Escapist, and other big outlets. The third is EN World's own review by Neuroglyph. The value you place on each, if any value at all, is a personal choice. My job is to present the data, but I leave it to you to make your minds up. Glance at the ratings, read the comments, click through and read all the long, full reviews - I designed it to present as wide a picture as possible. And your review/rating is as valuable as anybody's.

  • 08:50 AM - Sitara mentioned Neuroglyph in post NPC creation rules
    So the review of the DMG by Neuroglyph confirms NPC creation rules are in. While i was a big fan of D&D4e's unique monsters approach, something which has been kept to a large extent in 5e, one thing I really do miss from 3e was the simple NPC classes, for making humanoid enemies and NPCs, like bandits, the local sage, etc. Monsters IMO should be unique, along with special villain types. But the NPC classes were useful for average opponents. They could also be combined with PC classes for unique flavors. So can anyone who has the D&D 5e DMG please go into detail on the NPC rules? What kind are there?

  • 03:38 AM - Quickleaf mentioned Neuroglyph in post Hoard of the Dragon Queen - a solid D effort.
    Olgar Shiverstone (and others feeling this adventure is a railroad), I'm curious what you thought of Neuroglyph's recent review of Hoard of the Dragon Queen? Overall, the adventure arc is designed to be quite sandbox-y, or more aptly, a series of mini-sandboxes right from the first episode. Wolfgang made mention of the fact that as designers who have played D&D through multiple editions, they ďwere drawn toward an older style of playĒ for Hoard of the Dragon Queen, where not every encounter is fought, but some are resolved through trickery, negotiation, or simply avoided altogether. Read more here: http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?358765-4-out-of-5-rating-for-Hoard-of-the-Dragon-Queen Because it looks like we are getting vastly different reviews on the same dang product. Some folks say its a railroad, others that it's a sandbox!

  • 11:35 PM - GX.Sigma quoted Neuroglyph in post Hoard of the Dragon Queen: WotC & Kobold Press Team Up for the Inaugural Campaign Arc of D&D 5th Edition!
    Production Quality The production quality of Hoard of the Dragon Queen is excellent...And the artwork in Hoard of the Dragon Queen is fantastic!It's so interesting that that's how you feel, because I had the exact opposite reaction. I was genuinely shocked at how low the production quality is. I've also seen the maps online, and they look much better on the screen (they're all muddy and hard to read in the book). The first page also came unglued from the spine after opening the book only 3 or 4 times. Maybe I just got a bad copy?

  • 03:15 PM - Stormonu quoted Neuroglyph in post The Wait is Over... The Magic has Returned: WotC Releases the D&D Starter Set! (A Pre-Release Review)
    Well, first off, 8 out of 10 score is hardly indicative of this review castigating the designers... but I do see your point. I think where I see it as a (slight) negative is that, from a historical perspective, each edition of D&D has innovated new game mechanics and had a very different "feel" from other editions. These rules don't "feel", at least to me, to be the dynamic mechanical innovations we've seen in past editions. I don't think you could say that of 1E -> 2E either; that edition change was primarily a re-organization and incorporation of elements from non-core rulebooks (DSG & WSG proficiencies, for example).

These rules don't "feel", at least to me, to be the dynamic mechanical innovations we've seen in past editions. Right. Well, I guess I did understand what you meant. So, despite them saying up front that their design goal was to embrace previous editions and make a game that was supposed to blend the best of editions past, you feel they should have chosen to do something different and be innovative. It's always a tough call for a reviewer to approach a review by way of whether the designers accomplished their stated goals or whether, no matter their goals, if they produced something you were hoping they would produce. I do understand your point and appreciate that you only counted it slightly against them. I'm not in any way questioning your final numbers or other conclusions. It just vexes me wh...
