    Yes, you need a fairly decent LOG score to get honours on a bachelor degree. Those builder exploits aren't so much designed for creating a science scanner, as being in a locked cell and using parts of the bed and the light fixture tome a crude communicator (30) or maybe a melee weapon like an axe, sword, etc. It would take a very skilled person to make a blaster out of the light fixture, but...

    Here's my thought on the topic: it's like entering a room and starting a conversation with some folks, and then having a third person walk up to you all and demand that you stop having that conversation because *they* had that conversation with somebody yesterday. If somebody is having a conversation you've already had, or are bored of, or whatever, then just move on and have a different...

    Youíve pretty much nailed it - as a keyword system, if it makes sense, the itís valid. But the GM gets a veto, of course. Re. the second question, you have to do the career steps in order - attributes, skills, then exploit. The doubling up rule only applies to the second step.

    I get asked this most every day, so a sticky thread seems appropriate. I'll continue to edit this thread as things occur to me. Things To Remember WOIN is a tactical game. It assumes that you and the monsters will be using tactics. Using tactics can make a weak opponent decimate a powerful one. This means using cover, crossfires, aims, feints, LUC dice, higher ground, exploits, exchanging...

    The game is not designed to require certain amounts of equipment at certain grades. That said, 10K for a starting mission seems very excessive. I'd have gone maybe 1,000 total at the highest end, probably less. But it depends on the feel of the game you're after. Remember that higher quality gear gets a lot more expensive, but they shouldn't be thinking about that at starting grades. Later,...

    I canít help feeling that if fun requires that much effort, there are probably other problems going in. Hanging out with your friends doing a thing you all enjoy pretty much makes its own fun.

    4% of Facebookís global revenue doesnít means nothing to it. Itís stock value plummets for much smaller fluctuations. It hits big multinationals hard. The major global megacorps arenít dismissing it as ďblusterĒ. It was announced two years ago. Itís not a new thing, despite the last minute panic. Itís not bluster; it will be enforced if companies operate within the EU. The EU has always...

  • 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...
