    I don't mind if they squeeze off the occasional fart joke and I prefer dry humor.

  • 01:21 PM - AnimeSniper mentioned Dimitri Mazieres in post Published war-themed adventures?
    Dimitri Mazieres you could always use the age old "Congratulations you've just been conscripted into the King's Army". I remember a friend who used this. You could also just have the town/city where the players are currently at come under siege by an enemy army... do they flee trying to evade enemy patrols or help the defenders hold off the enemy until the friendly reinforcements arrive. Then there is the classic the party is traveling when suddenly they are caught by a patrol or between the two armies as they begin fighting.

  • 03:08 PM - Egg Embry quoted Dimitri Mazieres in post Big Fantasy Adventure in a Tiny Dungeon
    Would this be a good option to teach RPGs to little children (5-8)? Dimitri, I second Baumi's assessment, the Hatchling Edition is an excellent version for the youngest players. :-) Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer Looking for ENWorld reviews including for all-ages RPGs, try here.

  • 01:45 PM - Morrus quoted Dimitri Mazieres in post Published war-themed adventures?
    I was thinking more along the lines of medieval D&D style adventures. I do own War of the Burning Sky (though I haven't played or ran it) and RHoF, but was looking for something that put the players right into the action from the very start, sort of 'in media res', instead of building up the circumstances that lead into the conflict/war. WotBS actuallly does start with the war underway and Gate Pass under siege.

  • 01:54 AM - Monte At Home quoted Dimitri Mazieres in post AMA with Monte Cook (Numenera, D&D, Monte Cook Games, Malhavoc Press)
    Hi Monte! I was a eager follower of your work back in the d20 era and really liked your design philosophy. Now, on to the questions: 1) Game mechanics/design-wise, what were the issues that contributed to your retiring from the DnD 5e project, if any? (I'm not interested in internal politics or personal aspects, just game design ones). 2) What is your opinion on the finished DnD 5e ruleset? 1. There were no mechanics or design issues that influenced my decision. My codesigners at the time were top-notch and the game was great. 2. As I said earlier, although it probably seems strange, I have not read or played the published versions of 5e. Based on the team, I'm certain it's very good.

    How much salt do you actually need? I must have poured about 50g of salt (a little less than 2 oz.) and the dice just sunk. That would depend on the exact composition of the die. And in some cases it may not be possible at all - there is, of course, a point at which you simply can't dissolve any more salt in the water. (If you use hot water, you'll get more salt to dissolve.)

  • 05:05 AM - Random Bystander quoted Dimitri Mazieres in post The older I get, the more I appreciate 3.0
    I was quite upset when 3.5 was announced so (relatively) quickly after 3.0. Even more so after learning about some of the purposed changes (new ranger? Cool! Changing how weapon sizes work? What the hell?!) but, eventually I got used to it. Anyways, I think it could be enlightening to re read Monte Cook's thoughts about 3.5 back in 2003. Caster level is still a prerequisite for magic item creation. This was an error in the 3.0 DMG and remains. You still have to be 17th level to make a 1st-level pearl of power. Caster level pre-requisites were an error? By induction, then: * The requirement of being a caster to create a magic item is an error. All that is needed is for the requisite spells to be cast. ** Spell casting services can be hired: http://www.d20srd.org/srd/equipment/goodsAndServices.htm#spell ** Alternately, item(s) which cast the required spell(s) can be used. Edit: By induction of these: * The donor of the experience for the item does not need to be the character(s) casting required sp...

  • 08:08 PM - frankthedm quoted Dimitri Mazieres in post Reaper Bones II kickstarter --It's Over! $3mil reveal inside
    I agree almost completely with Olaf, and I also felt less excited following the KS this time around. Also, the core set ended up with something like 150+ minis (I'm not counting the bases) against last year's 240+ vampire package.As I said Prices higher for the model amounts so Reaper would do better than just breaking even.First time the figs were cheaper than some minis I've gotten out of gumball machines. And I mean cheap ass U.S.A. gumball machines, not higher end Gashapon machines.

    I agree almost completely with Olaf, and I also felt less excited following the KS this time around. Also, the core set ended up with something like 150+ minis (I'm not counting the bases) against last year's 240+ vampire package. So, yeah, I think all those $50 expansions and optional add-ons had an impact on the whole. Then again, I'm looking at it from a consumer's perspective. Maybe the final sales figures are more profitable with this model. Hmm, I didn't realise the difference in model count between the Bones I Vampire and Bones II Core Set was so large. I could be wrong again, but did the Bones II Core Set have a greater number of large figures?
  • 12:39 AM - Olaf the Stout quoted Dimitri Mazieres in post Reaper Bones II kickstarter --It's Over! $3mil reveal inside
    While I'm very satisfied with the results, I think it was a bit (relatively speaking, of course) disappointing how the 2013 core set measures when compared with the one from the first KS. IMHO the Reaper guys branched a bit too much with the three core expansions, and not having steadier additions to the core set (the last true addition was at 1.8 million). I keep thinking that if there had been more core set additions instead of optional add-ons and expansions the final amount would have been greater. But maybe everything turned out as they intended. I think Reaper's problem was that they had so many core additions right at the start of the campaign, so they very quickly got close to the point where they couldn’t add many more items to the core set and still be profitable for them. So after Day 1, there was only like a dozen minis added to the core set. If they’d spread the core additions out a little more I think people wouldn’t have felt like very little was added to the core set, even though...

  • 09:50 AM - Quickleaf quoted Dimitri Mazieres in post Confrontation: Age of Ragnarok - Miniatures size comparison?
    I've been thinking that I could try to re-base them with 25mm plastic bases, if my obsessive personality traits can't deal with that. Do you think it's possible to do so? Personally I wouldn't bother (but my tolerance for such things might exceed yours). If you decide to it shouldn't be hard as most confrontations minions have a plastic pin on each foot which goes into the base. Simply cut that pin and you've got a figure to base as you desire.

    Thanks for that comparison shot, psyronin! It looks as the Confrontation minis can be used with D&D minis side by side without problems :) Yes that's right, we mix confrontation and D&D minis no problem. The only issue you might run into is medium-sized confrontation minis have slightly larger than 1" diameter bases, so things can get cramped on a D&D battle map when you have lots of confrontation minis next to each other.
