    Anyone know why the Castle Ravenloft maps are not up there? Did someone else make them? Francois Beauregard and Ben Wootten are also listed as cartographers (Why isn't Perkins listed as one?! He deserves it!) but I can't find what they did. I guess they did the photoshopping on the castle map, since the rest of the maps seems to be 100% Schley from cover to cover (which is awesome--we've come a long way since Hoard of the Dragon Queen). Edit: Confirmed. The poster map lists those two, as well as David Sutherland III, who made the original map. Looking at Beauregard's other works, it seems he's also responsible for the architectural sketches throughout the book. Anyone know if the Castle Ravenloft maps are available in digital form anywhere? http://www.dmsguild.com/product/17527/I6-Ravenloft-1e?it=1 Edit: But seriously, the answer you're looking for is no. Maybe email Ben Wootten?

I don't see anything on Mike Schley's site to mentions this.

    I'm gonna take a random guess that someone licensed rights to Warlord CCG or RPG. No this is clearly about Torg. The D20 dices are "eternity shards" from the old WEG boxed set and the quote is from that game too. BTW Warlord had its RPG back in the day of 3.5 D&D.

    How does one go about getting those nifty binders? Right? I hope, at least, Morrus can make the inserts available for print. I'd love to collect a bunch of the issues in some nice looking binders like that.

    How do you logically justify being atheist in a default D&D campaign(not-Planescape either)? Just some straight up plain vanilla Greyhawk or Forgotten Realms where everyone *knows* that there are gods that grant their clerics spells and favor to their followers? What about Krynn? Especially on Krynn, where if everyone knows that if you deny or defy the Gods they can leave or just literally throw a mountain down on your head. In the Dragonlance setting, Raistlin proved that Belzor was a false god, and when Caramon and Tasslehoff traveled to the future, they discovered that Raistlin had also destroyed Takhisis and all of the other "true" gods. Then there are the barbarian tribes that worship dragons, the Cult of the Worm that worshipped a huge worm, the Temple of the Forerunners who follow their ancestoral spirits, and so on. I doubt many people would lack belief (a la atheism) in the existence of dragons, ghosts, huge worms, etc. But believing they exist is not the same as believing they ar...

    I certainly don't want this topic to degenerate into any kind of real world religious/political discussion or anything. I'm just trying to to make sense out of a game about magic and dragons! :)Just turn the question around: Why would anyone in a (naturally completely hypothetical...) world devoid of dragons and magic choose to ignore scientific evidence to invent supernatural explanations? It's basically the same answer: (willful) ignorance knows no bounds. What still doesn't make any sense to me, would be the the 'casual believer' or the ones who only pay lip service to the gods. Say have a large village or town where most people worship Pelor and the Clerics help see to everyone's needs. I mean, wouldn't everyone eventually genuinely worship or be a cleric of Pelor until the goverrnment would basically be a Theocracy? Why aren't all governments Theocracies? I guess I'm looking for in game reasons. How would a couple of happy go lucky rogues justify raiding the temple of Paladine so they m...

    Say have a large village or town where most people worship Pelor and the Clerics help see to everyone's needs. Well, this depends upon the demographics of the world, and the rule set. Maybe there are enough clerics to really take care of everyone, and maybe there aren't. Take 5e. Strictly speaking, everyone regains all hit points over a long rest. Why do I need a cleric for day-to-day stuff? If I can survive trauma long enough to get a long rest, then the cleric is mostly superfluous. And it isn't like clerics are the only ones who can cure things... I mean, wouldn't everyone eventually genuinely worship or be a cleric of Pelor until the goverrnment would basically be a Theocracy? Well, in that world, are the clerics of Pelor the *only* people who can heal? If not, then the people have choices, and it isn't a done-deal for Pelor. Do the people actually need the clerics all that frequently - do mundane skills handle most of their needs?

If you watch The Tudors, I'm not so sure the government wasn't a Theocracy, f...

I always tell my players that a visitor from my world to Medieval Europe would be shocked at how little power was held by the Catholic Church.
