  • 12:52 PM - imagineGod quoted chrisshorb in post Here Are The 10 Most Anticipated Tabletop RPGs Of 2019!
    I gues I’m out of touch with the “mainstream” I voted for none of those. Tales from the Flood may be my 4th or 5th choice. I gues I’m out of touch with the “mainstream” I voted for none of those. Tales from the Flood may be my 4th or 5th choice. It is actually called "Things from the Flood" and focuses on teens, so can be viewed as the evolutionary successor to "Tales from The Loop" which focused on kids, possibly inspired by "Stranger Things" in an alternate 1980s that never was, with superb artwork by Simon Stalenhag (see Electric State art book).

  • 09:24 AM - R_Chance quoted chrisshorb in post Starter Traveller (Classic circa 1980's) is free at DTRPG
    GURPS Traveller took the tack that Strephon wasn’t assassinated. Basically retconned out the entire New Era. Both Gurps and T20 took the Traveller setting, and plopped it on top of existing systems. To varying results imo. I've never run the GURPS version although I have a couple of the books. I have all the T20 material, but generally just use a version of CT with crunchy bits from MT thrown in (mainly in ship and equipment design). I pretty much skipped the assassination of Strephon myself :) Just a failed attempt that made a short splash in the TAS News. Oh, and I use a year by year generation system for every profession. Otherwise the characters that use the year by year Mercenary style character generation tend to out skill the 4 year term characters. Mixing the two just seems... I don't know, "off" somehow. The downside is longer character generation time of course, although it doesn't seem like a problem compared to newer games.

    Strange that the number of d&d 5e players is only a small percentage more than number of games. I would expect at least 3:1 ratio.The games played represent actual sessions, but the players represent individual users self-selected of which games they are interested in playing: so somebody can put down 5E, Pathfinder, Starfinder, Star Wars and World of Darkness and count in each bucket.

    Strange that the number of d&d 5e players is only a small percentage more than number of games. I would expect at least 3:1 ratio. Yes, I though that was very odd too. Makes you wonder what conclusions we can really draw from these statistics. E.g. are their loads of D&D 5E sessions being setup and never played? It would suggest that a fair percentage of players are currently in more than one game. This would be my guess as well. Rings true with my anecdotal experience. It could also be representative of more numerous shorter games, which has certainly been an aim with 5E official campaign design. We've certainly all heard anecdotal reports of how brief those games can be be. Considering that the numbers for other games remained somewhat constant, it's reasonable to suggest those are longer, more established groups with more established campaigns.

  • 06:43 AM - sulimo0310 quoted chrisshorb in post Mobile Monk - should I take any levels of Rogue?
    Thanks all for the responses. I'm going to be taking a spear as my monk weapon. After reading the responses, I have been persuaded to go mono-monk; and go with Drunken Master. I haven't decided yet on Mobile or +2 abilities.While mobile is great on any Monk, if you are going Drunken Master I would suggest the +2 instead. The Drunken Master 3rd level ability basically gives you the benefits of the mobile feat whenever you flurry. So while it's technically not as good as always on mobile, you will be able to flurry most rounds you need it, and have that extra ability score gain above most other 4th level monks.
