    I’m not sure I get it either. You had 70 players show interest, but then you fired them all and are looking for new players? I mean, people are busy. If they showed interest, they may be able to play at a later date or whatever. They probably won’t now! :)

    Disagreeing with somebody isn't a reason to start insulting them. If you can't disagree politely without namecalling, find some other thread to post in.

    Tales of the Old Margerve is a collection of 5E adventures set in an ancient, enchanted forest in Kobold Press' Midgard setting on Kickstarter right now. Kobold Press has sent along a preview of one of the monsters from the book -- the Briar Man, an undead fey vampiric monstrosity! The Kickstarter itself contains two books (and an optional pawn stretch goal). The primary book contains...

    EN5ider this week features a mighty CR 27 monster! While technically an ancient red dragon, Syndrathrax’s necromantic transformations and attempted apotheoses have forever altered her. Though she shares the massive size of her fellow red wyrms she is gaunt and skeletal, and her scales sapped of their red luster and now bone white. Thanks to the necromantic energy that permeates her body she...

    Wowzers. That will take a lot of unpacking! That's a LOT of questions! :) OK, here goes. I doubt I'll get to the end today, but I'll try to make a start. I'll skip the general comments and try to focus on the questions. The spellcraft skill has a section on page 156. It is knowledge about magic, as opposed to magical skill.

    Nothing wrong with trying something and saying “let’s let the market decide this one”.

    I have never heard a drink referred to as a “mild alcoholic beverage” before! Sounds like what Data from Star Trek would call it! :)

    Fans of Deep Space Nine, and especially those who want to play Ferengi or Changelings, will enjoy this short PDF from Modiphius for Star Trek Adventures. Not only are those two new races now available, but the stats of the DS9 crew are also provided.

    No, it’s basically the same system as Baldur’a Gate and Neverwinter Nights.

    Yeah. That’s exactly what the official beginners set is for. Lost Mines of Phandelver seconded. Or thirded.

    It’s no harder to learn than any other new CRPG with its own system. Probably easier, because like D&D, Pathfinder has the d20 system as it’s kernel. Plus there are pregen options if you don’t want to make a character (though it guides you through that),

  • 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 “were drawn toward an older style of play” 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...
