  • 10:48 PM - DaveDash mentioned SilverfireSage in post High level characters: A one off
    SilverfireSage First off, I want to clearly state, that I agree with all of your assumptions (1 2 and 3). However when it comes to this: All in all, I was very pleased with the state of this adventure, and optimistic about the future. My main campaign is just ramping up to 12th level, and I was worried that I wouldn't be able to challenge the PCs anymore. This short adventure put those fears to rest, and now I can't wait to continue. I want to caution you on a couple of things about this. The party you ran was not very well optimised. I've used a lot of the same monsters you have used against a well optimised spell caster heavy party (Paladin, Wizard, Lore Bard, Cleric) and they have completely cake walked the same monsters at level 12. Spells like banishment take care of fiends pretty easily, and hold person or silence completely shuts down Drow Wizards. I've had the Dracolich from the MM been taken down in 2 rounds without barely scratching PCs (level 17). Also there is a huge...

  • 12:51 PM - Charles Rampant mentioned SilverfireSage in post Preview 3: Rings
    I really like those rings. Powerful and exciting, the sort of thing that you'd love to find at the bottom of a hoard. I'm really looking forward to the DMG, which should hopefully arrive just as I'm ready to start giving out the shinies to my players. I'll also echo @SilverfireSage and say that I love that little part of the Shooting Stars ring. I'm keen to see weapons that can only be attuned in a fireplace or something, the sort of stuff that you can turn into a really memorable moment for the players.

  • 01:32 PM - Ulorian quoted SilverfireSage in post Sword Coast Legends vs. Divinity Original Sin.
    Isometric RPGs have been around since the early nineties, possibly earlier with Baldur's Gate and Planescape Torment. Baldur's Gate was released in 1998, Planescape in 1999. Other isometric titles preceding those two: Fallout (1997), Diablo (1996), and Ultima 8 (1994). There could have been some prior to that, but not that I remember. Here's what games looked like in 1991: Final Fantasy IV

  • 06:13 AM - Minsc quoted SilverfireSage in post Dungeons and Dragons and the RPG Stigma
    A curious thing happened to me today that I'm guessing has happened around a dozen times ove the last year. I work at a hospital essentially as a unit clerk, and as such I have quite a bit of time on my hands. Recently, I've taken to bringing my 5E books to prepare for material for upcoming sessions, and generally work on my campaign setting. I've recieved a few comments on it, generally curiosity, with very little of it being negative (in fact, a coworker recently has wanted to start playing, which I found extremely pleasing.). But today, a doctor approached who I hold in high regard, someone whom I hope will write a recommendation for me for medical school. The second he saw the book, he seemed incredulous that I would play it. Contempt was dripping from his voice, and he warned me to not bring up this hobby to the admissions boards under any circumstances. Not only that, but he went on, speaking in a stereotypical nasally nerd drawl, to the laughter of many of the nurses around. This isn't som...

  • 04:48 PM - delericho quoted SilverfireSage in post [UPDATED] RAGE OF DEMONS! New D&D Storyline Features Drizzt, Underdark, & Demon Lords!
    Except nobody bothered to actually read the description of the RPG itself... Or they did, especially the bits where it says: The renegade drow Drizzt Do’Urden is sent to investigate but it will be up to you to aid in his fight against the demons before he succumbs to his darker temptations. “Rage of Demons is a huge storyline involving all expressions of Dungeons & Dragons, and we’re excited to bring players this story in concert with all of our partners,” said Nathan Stewart, Brand Director at Wizards of the Coast. “I can’t wait to see everyone interact with one of the world’s most recognizable fantasy characters: Drizzt Do’Urden. Descending into the depths won’t exactly be easy for him, and D&D fans will get their mettle tested just like Drizzt when they come face-to-face with all the demon lords.” and proceeded to post 8 pages of complaints about it. ENWorld has thousands of members. At time of writing, this thread has 110 posts in it. So, actually, what you have is a small subset...

    wow, it doesn't even mention Drizzt at all, and people are getting so up in arms about it? They put him front and centre in their official announcement of the storyline. You can hardly be surprised if people assume he's going to be kind of important to it.

    has anyone else had similar issues recently? Any stories of good? I'm sincerely hoping that this is an isolated incident, but it doesnt make me hopeful for the brand or for RPGs In general. Nope. To my pleasant surprise, nobody at church that has batted an eyelash when my D&D hobby comes up. It wasn't that way in the 80s.
  • 04:43 PM - Kramodlog quoted SilverfireSage in post Mongrelfolk
    I dunno. Wasn't it only about a month between the announcement of Princes of the Apocalypse and its release?About 10 weeks. So if anything is to be released at GenCon, expect an announcement around June.
  • 12:30 PM - Grainger quoted SilverfireSage in post Dungeons and Dragons and the RPG Stigma
    No, not recently - I did get a slagging off from a security guard while visiting the Imperial War Museum a few years ago when he found my D&D stuff in my bag. :mad: Wow, what did he say? Edit: tags messed up, and I attributed the quote to the wrong person; now fixed; sorry to both posters involved.

I might mention I had a game that night and the stuff might be visible in my open bag, but I wouldn't take it out at my office desk and start working on campaign stuff (I wouldn't read most non-work-related books or magazines there, either). Personally if I were you I'd leave the D&D stuff in my bag while at work.

    Mid 20s for me. He's gotten engaged with me on other topics like the new Avengers movie and video games. Really it's only been D&D which is why I was curious if anyone else has had such adverse reactions. So the :):):):):):):):) in question likes comic book movies and video games (both of which use very similar escapist elements to TRPGs) but pokes fun at the hobby responsible for the biggest grossing video games of all time? Solid reminder that a piece of paper and 12 years of university and internships bears no correlation to analytical prowess. Sorry to hear for you, though, that someone you held respect for turned out to be an ass. It can be quite disappointing when it happens.

Really it's only been D&D which is why I was curious if anyone else has had such adverse reactions. I've run into a few video gamers who made their disdain for tabletop gaming (of any sort) obvious. It was anti-intellectualism, 21st century style; computer and video games were fast-paced, interesting and exciting, while tabletop games (in their view) were dull and boring due to the fact that there were no visuals, no sound effects, and they required hours of reading, writing, filling out character sheets, and sitting around a table, which only a complete nerd could possibly enjoy. I refer to these types as "vidiots." None of them were MD's, though. That's new.

Usually dealing with fundamentalist christians (almost always Baptists, for that matter, tho' a few Catholics). I had one supervisor get all nutjob about it. I have had coworkers refuse to work with me. (One of them got fired over it. The other saw the writing on the wall.)

    He's a young doctor in his mid 30's if that helps at all. Makes it even worse for me to be honest. I meant your age. He's younger than me; I assume you're younger than him? Or are you older?

  • 12:14 AM - Nebulous quoted SilverfireSage in post D&D AL Play reports: Princes of the Apocalypse, sessions 1-23
    I don't see the impetus for non-good aligned characters to want to do any of this. I played my first session the other day with all Neutral players, and none of them really wanted to help any of the villagers out. Since they're on a quest mostly for gold and loot, I had to think of my own hooks in order to get them going. How do your evil characters work with the group at all? Why would Grigori care to revive his comrade? Why do they care to help out the bandits? Why would they return the stolen items? I'm honestly very curious to know how this all works, because I've never DM'd for a group like this and I'm really starting to get frustrated with it. Flip it around. Instead of "Good PCs trying to destroy the cult", "Bad PCs want something FROM the cult." The villagers are a means to an end. Anyone associated with the cult is a pawn to exploited. Alliances are fragile and lies are the norm. It's not the kind of campaign I'd want to run, but it CAN be done, and the results could be....interestin...

  • 03:49 PM - DMZ2112 quoted SilverfireSage in post WotC's Nathan Stewart: "Story, Story, Story"; and IS D&D a Tabletop Game?
    Unfortunately, if you teach a man to fish, they're going to stop buying your fish... and WotC needs people to buy their fish or their dead in the water. Just about the only statement that surprised me in this interview is when Nathan says that the feedback they are getting /now/ suggests that people are more interested in homebrewing than adventure paths, so they might even drop to one AP a year. I mean, that's not news, as I understand it. We've always been a homebrewing community by a massive margin. In context I guess it's a claim that divorces the brand even more completely from the (unsexy, 20th-Century) books, so he might just be pandering to his corporate executive customer base, but giving him the benefit of the doubt that he isn't just making it up out of whole cloth -- it seems really blind. It does illustrate, however, the very important point that Hasbro does not care if you buy their fish; they care about how many millions of people buy tickets to see their fishing documentary.
