Which of these would you say adding new monsters would fall under?Originally Posted by Piratecat
Any group can only fight so many goblins and it would be nice to share advice on expanding the range of possible adventures.

Apologies for the questions but some examples of what is cool and what is not might help to make the line really clear to everyone.
Herremann the Wise
Imagination is a quality given a man to compensate him for what he is not,
and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is.
He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man, for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder.

I want to stay as true as I can to the spirit of the playtest and the ENWorld forums...
What about derived mechanics? Rules that may not be spelled out but we might be able to figure out?
As in, figuring out or hypothesizing that hp or bonuses are calculated with a guessed formula? Or predicting that particular abilities are slotted for background/theme/class/race?

Is that NDA related? Otherwise it's seems very wired not being able to reference actual rules as written while discussing them.

It'd be a fine line of how much mechanical detail is too much to reveal. Easiest way for ENWorld to moderate that kind of thing is to simply say "no" outright. No question of where the line is. No question of 'death by small parts'.

It should be possible to talk about the mechanics without reposting them. We do it all the time on these boards because we work from a common resource. It would be rare to see a rule posted verbatim in quotes.
Easy to avoid I think.
