  • 07:22 PM - Umbran quoted tgmoore in post D&D: The Board Game?
    I’m baffled why a mainstream boardgame publisher doesn’t put out a simple dungeon crawler in the same vein as HeroQuest. Maybe because "simple" in the boardgame market is already saturated? Meanwhile, there's Gloomhaven. Which is a complete miss in "simple setup"....

  • 11:56 PM - evileeyore quoted tgmoore in post D&D: The New Poker?
    Is D&D now being used to network and blow off steam the way adults play poker? In this aspect? Maybe? Will D&D replace poker as the weekly adult get-together for busy professionals? Personally I think boardgames have replaced poker. At least in my circles it was poker† as the pick-up game, then it was M:tG, now it's boardgames. † As in 'card games', like poker variants, spade, hearts, etc. Professional DMs fundamentally change the game for everyone involved and not for the better. The DMs role becomes that of a paid entertainer rather then a collaborative storyteller. I could never take a penny for running a game and never will. That's all you. I for one have been paid to run games† (LARPs specifically). Nothing wrong with it. † Not sure I'd take money for running a non-LARP as ... well... I'm not as good a sit-down GM as I am a LARP GM. It's a whole different style of running game. I'd describe LARP GMing as "herding cats by alternatively tossing cat-nip and ...

    Professional DMs fundamentally change the game for everyone involved and not for the better. The DMs role becomes that of a paid entertainer rather then a collaborative storyteller. I could never take a penny for running a game and never will. I disagree, particularly as the article mentions being paid to teach it to young people. I recall my friend and I back in the 1980s took a summer "class" at a local college as teenagers that was intended to teach you had to play D&D (we already knew but thought it was fun to choose that as something to do for Summer). It was a blast, and fascinating to watch the professor try and DM a room of 25 kids all at once through the same adventure (and it worked!). He was paid, as a summer class professor. The students all paid a tuition for it. But, there was nothing "entertainer" about his role. He was doing the hard work of introducing the concepts of a role playing game, and how to parse the rules and move through the story without distraction, to a lo...

    Professional DMs fundamentally change the game for everyone involved and not for the better. The DMs role becomes that of a paid entertainer rather then a collaborative storyteller. I could never take a penny for running a game and never will. Entirely valid opinion and I can see the point about paid entertainer. But at the point where I'm being paid to entertain a group of people, it's absolutely critical to be collaborative and provide the experience that the group expects. If not, you're not going to be paid by that group for very long. If I'm being honest, I'd be up for that challenge and have no problem with it if it meant I could focus on developing my brand and content full time as a result; while increasing the circle of people I know and play with. Nothing better than helping people feel good and experience things they wouldn't otherwise. kB

  • 01:33 PM - Quartz quoted tgmoore in post Making A Wish Creates New D&D Monster In Mordenkainen's
    Cool monster! A clever Oblex might use a hollow throne, hole in a wall, trapdoor in floor, etc to conceal the gelatinous umbilical. Further enhancing its ability to present itself as a real person who can then send our intrepid Adventurers to their doom! Give it some means of Invisibility and you're set. I presume that this thing is ordinarily evil, but a neutral one might make for a more interesting character, perhaps even a patron. The Oblex also seems to be very like - but much nastier than - the Feyr from one of the Dragon Annuals.

  • 01:41 AM - timbannock quoted tgmoore in post Gygax IP To Be Made Available For Video Games
    He is a big Magic The Gathering player and attends GaryCon. IIRC Alex ran a game at GaryCon X (2018). Then...what *is* his excuse? Because that article speaks of someone who has no clue the state of WOTC's business, the RPG industry, or the attendance of GaryCon and by extension other gaming conventions.

  • 06:48 PM - Pauper quoted tgmoore in post Is Dark Sun Coming To D&D?
    How long have they been hinting at new 5E material for a Campaign setting other than Forgotten Realms? Give us something already! I get that the cryptic hints are somewhat 'newsworthy' as speculation on potential future products, but it's rapidly getting to the point where I'm starting to expect the D&D equivalent of "Half-Life 3 confirmed!" memes any day now. -- Pauper

  • 05:46 PM - Kobold Boots quoted tgmoore in post Rules Cyclopedia of Basic D&D now in POD
    IIRC the original Rules Cyclopedia had but one printing and an errata was never incorporated into available .pdfs. You can find a errata here: It would be nice to see this errata incorporated into a new printing. Perhaps if this sells well. So long as they also include the tournament rules from the Companion set that were omitted for space reasons, I'm down with paying more for the new printing too. I dislike all-in-one printings that are not faithful enough to include all original content as most folks would never realize the difference.

  • 12:13 AM - Mike Myler quoted tgmoore in post Frank Mentzer Reveals More About World of Empyrea
    I'm a long time Greyhawk and Red Box fan. Can you provide any ideas what we might see beyond just a single box set? Will this KS launch include a beastiary, modules, etc? Woot! Unfortunately I can't give any details on what exactly the primary pledge level will contain aside from what Frank already said (a boxed campaign set). I think I can hint that the box set is very OSR, but I don't want to indemnify myself. I am consistently pushing to have something tangible about Empyrea with every announcement though and details on the Empyrea Box should be coming up in the queue pretty soon.

  • 04:42 AM - Wallraven quoted tgmoore in post Want To Earn $50 Scanning Classic D&D Books?
    I have to wonder if they project is complete? The original list to the Google Docs link: says it has been moved to the owners trash. I'd say so. The "info" link is redirecting to DMs Guild Support index, then bouncing to a "You're not authorised" message.

  • 07:07 PM - Twiggly the Gnome quoted tgmoore in post Looking for Meso American Adventures
    So does anyone know of any Meso American flavored adventures I might use? I know there was a Forgotten Realms box set for 2nd Ed. Not familiar with the contents. There were three published adventures for Maztica. City of Gold, Endless Armies, and Fires of Zatal.

  • 02:29 PM - Morrus quoted tgmoore in post AMA Russ Morrissey (Morrus) (EN World, EN Publishing, ENnies, WOIN)
    Sci-Fi RPGs have always been poor cousin to the traditional and original fantasy rpgs. Could you elaborate on why you think sci-fi rpgs are ascending in popularity? Any specific ones to check out? Honestly, I don't know why. Maybe it's just as simple as that the first and biggest name in RPGs happened to be fantasy? The two biggest RPGs in the world are both flavours of D&D, although one doesn't use that name. There's a lot of great sci-fi games in the tier below those two. And licensed stuff, too, like FFG's Star Wars. Warhammer 40K and its cousins are big. I wonder if Traveller had come first, whether the situation would be different? Or, in short, I don't know! Sci-fi popularity comes in waves in movies too -- it's ascending right now. Interestingly, sci-fi has traditionally done better in the movies/TV than fantasy, although LotR, GoT, etc. took a sledgehammer to that!

  • 08:57 PM - Riley quoted tgmoore in post Dungeons and Dragons and the RPG Stigma
    What does that tell you about his character (or lack thereof)? Clearly: Lawful Neutral, with Evil tendencies.
  • 08:40 PM - Bayonet quoted tgmoore in post Dungeons and Dragons and the RPG Stigma
    Some of those kids who grew up playing at being imaginary Paladins and fighters went on to do just that. I am an infantry combat veteran (Iraq) and a former police officer. You are in good company. Same story here. Infantry, Afghan vet.
  • 08:16 PM - Morrus quoted tgmoore in post Dungeons and Dragons and the RPG Stigma
    This doctor older then you, and in a respected position of authority over you and choose to mock you in front of co-workers. What does that tell you about his character (or lack thereof)? I think we've established he doesn't have a character!

  • 10:05 AM - ValamirCleaver quoted tgmoore in post starter set at Walmart
    What a coincidence, I just noticed earlier today that they carry D&D on their website and evidently have for a while based on the product selection. I saw a starter box at Target yesterday in Lexington, Kentucky.I got my first D&D book from a Target. I begged my stepmother to buy it for me until she finally relented. It had to have been early 80s because it was the 1st edition Monster Manual with the wrap around David Sutherland art. I didn't even know what D&D was at the time, but as I browsed thorough the book I saw that it had mythological monsters. Eventually after reading it a few times I figured out that it was for a game. I asked for & received the Moldavy red box on my following birthday, so this must have been around 82-83. 68006 68007 (im in MS so wal-mart is as plentiful as churches and I don't mean churches chicken, I mean our town is small and we have two Wal-marts, ...

  • 11:32 PM - pogre quoted tgmoore in post pogre's model and figure thread
    Great thread Pogre. You are a prolific painter at a high quality too. Any tips on removing "broccoli" bases from Reaper Bones miniatures? Are you just sawing them off in one pass with a fine tooth saw? First, thank you. The Reaper bases drive me crazy. I usually snip around them with nippers. Then I saw the rest off and sand the remainder. If you have a better method - I would sure love to read it! A lot of times I will cut the base down and just incorporate it into my base with green stuff. Here's an example, albeit a sloppy one, of an incorporated base:
