    I know review copies have been sent out to various people (ours went to Ben, our Pathfinder columnist) but the reviews are embargoed until Aug 1st. And, of course, thereís the 3PPs, but theyíre not even allowed to tell you who they are until then! :)

    Well the actual book comes out in 2 weeks; the playtest book is a year out of date. Where did you get it from? Unless youíre a collector, youíre better off waiting for the final rules on Aug 1st.

    Occasionally a game mechanic jumps out at me, and makes me think "wow!" -- it's not always brand new, and sometimes it builds on something else, or sometimes it's just new to me, but I like it when a simple mechanic catches my eye. Here's a couple of my favourites: D&D's advantage/disadvantage is a really elegant way to replace all those fiddly bonuses. It's one of my favourite things about...

    We did a skit about that in last week's podcast, with a player suggesting more and more outlandish races, starting with deep gnomes and tieflings, through aaracokra and minotaurs, to mind flayers and dragons, to daleks and Borg Queens, to, eventually, V'ger. The idea of somebody playing V'ger as a PC still cracks me up.

Every game has it's own niche and just needs to serve that niche well. In...

    I was thinking about that very thing earlier today. Thatís an artifact of using average rolls rather than the Judge rolling for the monsters. If the Judge rolls, youíd need a monster with 19d6 in its Defense skill (which doesnít exist) to make it impossible to hit by a starting character. I like the average rolls because it makes play really fast, but you do lose that randomness. One...

    By the same argument fighting, shooting, and defence are al forms of combat. Any skill list can be pared down indefinitely until you just end up with ďskillĒ, but I do feel those two things are different enough. I wouldnít want the average orc to charm somebody.

    Simply6 is a fast, light tabletop roleplaying game for 2 or more players which you can play using just six-sided dice. I put this together over the last couple of days in my spare time (based on something I was playing with in the forums a while back) and have uploaded it to DTRPG. It's only about 20-pages long, and will likely be tweaked and updated after I get some feedback.

    It's not the next logical step due to differences. It's the next logical step because it's structurally similar, making the upgrade the easiest one it could be. Xenforo is made by the people who left vBulletin about a decade ago when it changed ownership, and is the 'spiritual' successor, rather than vBulleitn 5 which is substantially different and not well-regarded. It's also better supported.

    The only people who have seen the game are under NDA. I liked some aspect of the playtest rules, and didn't like other things. But I knew it was a playtest, not a ruleset, and included exaggerated examples of things and a very specific set of adventures geared towards stress testing. I'm sure Paizo knew that the playtest process would turn off some people, but would make for a better game,...

    Morrus started a thread List of 5E powered RPGs?
    I wanted to put together a little list, as it's a conversation which seems to happen to me a lot! Today's launch of The Spy Game on Kickstarter spurred me to do it. Is there already such a list? I'm talking standalone games (not settings) which use 5E is their core. I tried searching for OGL core rulebooks on DTRPG, but it seems everybody who makes a setting, monster book, or adventure checks...

    Espionage has joined the long list of 5E-powered genres with The Spy Game from Black Cats Gaming, headed up by Sam Web from Modiphius. It describes itself as "... a world of international stealth and intrigue in a modern setting, powered by 5E, from the developer behind Star Trek: Adventures." And it's on Kickstarter! "Delve into a world of spies, assassins, diabolical masterminds and...

    They havenít done it because making video games is expensive and hard, and most companies able to do it have their own IP. Most who avail themselves of the OGL are a fraction of the size of a video game company, and only just manage to raise enough money on Kickstarter to make a book. There are certainly OGL applications, especially mobile ones. So some folks make electronic products and...

    Don't post again in this thread. You now have four infractions over pretty similar things, so it's clear that isn't working. The mods will discuss this and decide how to proceed now.

  • 12:27 PM - Aldarc mentioned Morrus in post Why do you play games other than D&D?
    Four pages in and no one has still linked or contextualized the original tweet? ORIGINAL TWEET THAT Morrus REFERENCES HERE Why play a RPG other than D&D? For the professional game designers out there working on non-D&D systems, do you try to do what D&D already does well but do it better? Or, do you look at what D&D doesn't do well and try to make your mark there? And here are some follow-up questions that they ask some of the responding posts that tease at the issues that press the author: For argument's sake, let's assume that most new RPG players are getting pulled in by 5e (I suspect that's true, but I couldn't produce hard evidence). So, as a professional game developer competing with 5e, how do you lure those players? How do you answer that important question? Interesting. D&D is obviously the 800 pound gorilla in the room. What's your thinking here about ignoring it? It has such an impact on the industry. Has ignoring D&D translated into business success? Has it pulled in customers? I'm not trying to sell anybody on D&D being the only RPG worth playing (I feel like I...

  • 02:55 PM - Elfcrusher mentioned Morrus in post The perfect D&D edition (according to ENWORLD)
    ...nely concerned about some of you harassing me and my family in real life.) And now I'm a "sock puppet" and a liar. Yes, I've posted 4,200 times on Enworld for the purpose of trolling warlord fans. Garthanos is behaving despicably: putting me on ignore and then denigrating me behind my back. If he wants to ignore me he should ignore me. One again, a reminder: I'm criticizing a concept in RPG design. If there's been a theme to my posting, it's that I'm vehemently opposed to any sort of imposition of thoughts/emotions/actions on my characters. Maybe I'm too fanatical on that position. Like Emerikol is about "disassociative mechanics" or Saelorn is about using out-of-character knowledge or Tony is about the need for non-magical abilities. That's my thing, and I'm 100% consistent about it (or at least I think I am) and I adamantly oppose anything that starts to infringe on it. If that gets you so angry you have to make personal attacks to combat it, you need help. FFS. EDIT: @Morrus. I'm sorry for "going there" in this thread. I just shouldn't have even said the world warlord. I will try to just stay away from this topic completely from now on. It irks me that I have to be silent on something I care about just because some people just can't handle it, but I will try to do so.

    Morrus I know it's low priority, but CM is straight up broken today. I tried to post something and it said "This forum requires that you wait 30 seconds between posts. Please try again in 37372418 seconds." That's not a typo, I C&P'd it. Also, thread read status is broken in all subforums (everything shows as unread and won't change), recent threads aren't showing, and somehow goldomark has managed to post ahead of the OP in two threads, despite a date tag up to 2 weeks after the OP. Hacked?

  • 12:20 AM - Hussar mentioned Morrus in post Chaotic Good Is The Most Popular Alignment!
    I gotta agree with Morrus on the whole CN thing. Thing is, most people, really, are lawful by D&D standards. They follow rules, they work (reasonably well) in groups every day and generally aren't out there to stir things up. Funny thing is, I think most players choose CN because they don't want to allow the DM to have any hooks into their behavior. It's really a shame that 5e ejected "unaligned" because, frankly, I think that's what most folks mean when they say CN. Sorry, but, if your chaotic neutral character is 100% responsible and trustworthy, he's not actually CN.

  • 05:08 PM - lowkey13 mentioned Morrus in post Let's Talk About THAC0
    THAC0 is clearly preferable to BAB, for two reasons. One, it sounds cooler, and closer to the action of hitting. THAC0. It's an aptonym. Second, it is easier. As Morrus has repeatedly explained to the rest of you, addition is easier. With THACO, you are always adding. With BAB, you have to constantly subtract negative numbers. So NOT ONLY do you have to use subtraction (OH NOES!), you ALSO have to subtract negative numbers. I swear, if I ever have to subtract the negative of the proficiency again .... Stop bowing to the tyranny of math.

  • 12:26 AM - Elfcrusher quoted Morrus in post What are your favourite single game mechanics?
    D&D's advantage/disadvantage is a really elegant way to replace all those fiddly bonuses. It's one of my favourite things about 5E. From what I have heard...perhaps apocryphally...MM got the idea for that from The One Ring. (Although it's worth pointing out that the mechanic doesn't actually have a name in TOR, it's just spelled out wherever it's used. E.g., "Roll the Feat die twice and take the better result.") But, yeah, I really like that mechanic, too. Although it's not just the mechanic itself that I like, it's the way it explicitly replaces summing up various positive and negative modifiers. But, um, I'm supposed to pick a mechanic I like, so I'll go with: The way that "Success, with Complications" in Dungeon World works.

  • 08:21 PM - aramis erak quoted Morrus in post I only run D&D when I need to establish a player base
    Where did you hear/see that assertion, out of curiosity? He's directly quoting me from another thread. I don't recall if that thread is here or at RPGGeek. When one prefers to GM, it's easiest to get player trust by running systems familiar to them. One can then find out who is interested. I'd rather have a game of D&D going than no game at all; I'd rather play (insert list of over 100 other games) than D&D, and If stuck running D&D, my preferences in D&D are limited to Cyclopedia/BECMI/BX and 5E at this time. I'd quit gaming entirely if my only options were pre-4E, and 4E is just too much hassle to GM. Building a base of people who have seen that I can and do run fun games, and how I approach rules makes it easier to recruit for those other 100 games
  • 09:27 AM - amethal quoted Morrus in post RPG Attack Site Closes As Author Outs Himself
    His company website has been taken down. Is the KS still running?Yes it is. Other than that one comment this issue seems to have passed the Kickstarter by. I had an update this morning, which I thought might have been a clarification or apology or denial or, you know, something, but instead it was basically "what do you think about our elves?"
  • 08:31 AM - DMMike quoted Morrus in post I only run D&D when I need to establish a player base
    Where did you hear/see that assertion, out of curiosity? From the "Why do you play games other than D&D" thread, I believe. And thinking about it, I'd probably be much happier going to play D&D with a strange group than I would most other systems because you really never know what you are going to get with a group, and D&D is at least some sort of baseline. D&D's new slogan: "At least some sort of baseline." Seriously though, that makes sense. If I'm not going to know the people playing, I might as well know the game.

But if you believe in yourself and achieve your goals, you can die so hard that no one will ever forget you, and thatís almost as good as not dying at all.

  • 04:11 PM - Umbran quoted Morrus in post New Terminator Going to Flop? [spoilers]
    It's pitched very much as a sequel rather than a reboot. There's time travel involved. The difference between sequel and reboot is negligible.
  • 02:39 PM - lowkey13 quoted Morrus in post New Terminator Going to Flop? [spoilers]
    It's pitched very much as a sequel rather than a reboot. Well, just pointing out that- 1. We had Terminator and T2. 2. Then we had the sequel, T3. How'd that go? 3. Then we had the Cameron-approved sequel, Salvation. How'd that go? 4. Then we had a reboot, that wasn't a reboot, Genisys. How's that go? 5. So now we have a sequel to ... T2. But it's not a reboot. Even though (obviously) they have to re-cast the roles of some of the actors in that film, and Arnold is 28 years older than T2 and 35 years older than Terminator. Sure, we can quibble about the difference between a reboot, and a sequel, and rebooting sequel, and whatever, but the basic point remains- if the target market is 40-50, the movie is doomed. Sorry. Luckily, that won't be the target demographic, because no studio would greenlight that. I mean, there was Cocoon, but that was some time ago. Clint Eastwood still makes some stuff, but they aren't for the blockbuster market like a Terminator movie would be. See what I ...

  • 07:47 PM - DMMike quoted Morrus in post Why do you play games other than D&D?
    If I tell a muggle that I'm getting together with my "GURPS group" or my "DFRPG group," it usually requires a longer explanation Was really hoping that "muggle" was a portmanteau of "muppet" and "fraggle." Still, it's a good one to know. So why do you play games other than D&D? What is it that your game of choice does that makes it the best fit for the stories and genres you're playing with? First, playing a game other than D&D tells players "this is going to be different from D&D!" If you don't establish that well, someone is going to be pissed that he can't play his usual Dragonborn Paladin. With an ogre-slaying knife. Besides that, my house-rule list probably just got too long at some point. Why play by the old rules when you've changed all of them? I like a game that offers flexibility - role-playability - to the GM and the players. D&D is more black-and-white. Which is great if you have an aspiring thespian in your group. Being able to tell her "nope, you fail," might give t...

    He's blocked me pre-emptively on Twitter for some reason. He had his account set to approved followers only, so it's not like I could ever see it, but I guess he's decided he doesn't want to see my tweets either. Never tweeted the guy or mentioned him! Wild guess, but I bet he had some rationalization for this other than that you might undermine the shaky ground on which his convictions stood.

    So why do you play games other than D&D? What is it that your game of choice does that makes it the best fit for the stories and genres you're playing with? Interesting choice of phrasing. It seems like the answer should be obvious: I play other games because they're not D&D. But, by the same token, I would also play D&D because it is D&D. And that itself is a testament to the greater significance and importance of D&D to the hobby in general. We're either playing D&D, or we're playing something else.

    I was only asking about players. My question was prompted by that tweet, but it isn't the same question. The question I wanted to ask is the one I posted. :)My apologies then.
