  • 03:16 PM - smiteworks mentioned JRedmond in post CURSE OF STRAHD Is Now On FANTASY GROUNDS
    JRedmond, true. The guy that did that conversion work for us on HOTDQ (Zeph) is also very skilled at making maps and offered to add those. This is the exception rather than the rule. He has been unavailable due to work and family issues, so these are being done by a different person. We have about 25 different contract folks who all do different work and I would consider only Zeph to be capable of matching the quality of the WOTC maps. Even then, I know it took him a very long time to make those 11 maps and I wouldn't expect him to do so on future modules just because he offered it on HOTDQ. For Out of the Abyss, I added about a dozen generic underdark cavern maps to our separate FG Battlemaps module that comes with the program to help support it. I think those turned out pretty good, but I would hardly consider myself in the same category as the skilled cartographers who make the maps for WOTC (Mike Schley, Jared Blando, etc.).

    I think publishers have to pay to enter the contest, more than just giving away products. If there's not a lot of visibility, it might not worth it, it's a bit like Pay-2-win. Without WotC or Paizo, it's a bit strange looking contest. At the same time, it's not the same production level of quality. On my side, I know Zweihander because of this contest so I'll follow this year votes as well. There is no entry fee to submit products to the ENnie Awards apart from actually sending the products one wants to enter to the judges. Neither WotC nor Paizo chose to enter this year. I was going to ask how they got on the list. I was surprised to not see Strongholds and Followers. I could easily see them win a couple categories. Strongholds and Followers was not submitted.

  • 05:33 AM - bedir than quoted JRedmond in post Stranger Things and D&D at Last: A Review
    It's a terrible product, the miniatures are junk and the adventure was severely lacking. I very much regret my purchase, it's most definitely the worst 5e product to come out of WoTC thus far. If you can cancel your order you should. 2 minis, dice set and 3rd to 5th level adventure for 25-30 bucks? It's a fine value and has more people asking me to DM than any time since 2015. It's a fine product

    It's weird that Critical Role is basically doing a ship campaign right now and a ship book is coming out. Why is it weird? Mercer regularly works with a variety of WoTC initiatives and likely has inside knowledge on the product line.

  • 08:25 PM - houser2112 quoted JRedmond in post Paizo's Stephen Radney-MacFarland Previews The Rogue Class For Pathfinder 2nd Edition!
    Thatís in PF1. This thread is discussing PF2, in which there is no separate Flat-Footed AC, attacking a Flat-Footed creature gives you +2 to hit it (or the creature has -2 AC? Again, Iím not 100% clear which side they add the modifier to),flanking a creature allows you to treat it as flat-footed, and creatures are not automatically flat-footed before they have acted on the first round of combat, though there is a 1st level rogue feature that allows rogues specifically to treat creatures that havenít acted on the first round as flat-footed. Ok, I wasn't aware they had revealed this kind of detail yet, so I assumed JRedmond was referring to PF1.

    I'm not a Pathfinder guy, what does "flat-footed" mean in PF? Itís a situational debuff that gives enemies +2 to hit a creature that has it (or gives the creature -2 AC? Iím not sure which way they apply the modifier, but either way, flat-footed creatures are 10% easier to hit.) A creature is considered flat-footed under a number of circumstances, including when it is being flanked and when it canít perceive its attacker. Basically combat advantage from 4e, only a debuff that applies to the victim instead of a buff that applies to the attacker. Flanking your target gets you a +2 to hit, but being flanked and being flat-footed are orthoganal. Flat-Footed: At the start of a battle, before you have had a chance to act (specifically, before your first regular turn in the initiative order), you are flat-footed. You can't use your Dexterity bonus to AC (if any) while flat-footed. Barbarians and rogues of high enough level have the uncanny dodge extraordinary ability, which means that they can...

    I'm not a Pathfinder guy, what does "flat-footed" mean in PF? It's a bit like Advantage in 5E in that it lets you attack with more precision and that it specifically allows Rogues to apply Sneak Attack damage.

    I'm not a Pathfinder guy, what does "flat-footed" mean in PF? Depends if you are asking in PF1 or PF2. In PF1, it was like an AC but without your dex bonus (and there may be more but I haven't played PF in a while). In PF2, I believe it provides a +2 bonus to hit (it might be a -2 to AC), but either way it is a bonus of 2.

  • 09:21 PM - Von Ether quoted JRedmond in post A Look at the Duerger: Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes Preview
    It's just my opinion, it's okay if it differs from yours. I love everything they've done, I just think this one didn't make sense. My comment doesn't herald the end of the golden age of ENWorld I promise. I know a writer who wants people to stop using the word "awesome" as just a term of approval ("So lunch, same time tomorrow?" "Yep. Awesome.") because it weakens the word's actual intent of expressing real excitement. Yeah, it seems that few people can be simply lukewarm anymore. If they aren't offended, disgusted or scandalized, they fear their opinion will belittled or worse yet -- ignored!

My comment doesn't herald the end of the golden age of ENWorld I promise. I'm sorry for jumping on your posts, just the word choice seemed weird to me (and it's been something I've noticed in the past from others, it just finally tipped over to commenting on it today). But as long as you promise ENWorld's golden age isn't over, that's fine with me. Remember, you promised!! ;)
  • 03:06 PM - Warmaster Horus quoted JRedmond in post A Look at the Duerger: Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes Preview
    UA is meant to be playtest material. This is a preview from an upcoming book, it does not fit at all and is insulting that they are trying to release this as UA. That seems like a bit of hyperbole. It was explained that they had a lot on their plate this month and why play test info wasn't in the cards. A sample of an upcoming book that includes new races and likely rules seems within the wheelhouse of what UA provides in lieu of other materials. After all, UA is not something that Wizards owes us.
  • 01:30 PM - kenmarable quoted JRedmond in post A Look at the Duerger: Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes Preview
    They should have released nothing rather than release a book preview under Unearthed Arcana. The preview is also pretty boring, not sure what they were thinking. I'm really scratching my head on how something not very exciting is actually worse than nothing at all. That makes no sense whatsoever. :) With UA only once a month and DDB now supporting UA, I was really hoping for something more and preferably player-centric. But also in the OotA game I DM, they are just arriving at Gracklstugh, so it's perfect timing even if it isn't very much.

  • 05:59 PM - SMHWorlds quoted JRedmond in post A Change Is Coming...
    This is incorrect, his full time gig is Lead Writer at Turtle Rock Studios, a video game designer. Creating YouTube videos, writing the Critical Role Vox Machina comic book and writing his own fantasy novels are all a side gig. Maybe this Kickstarter is the impetus for him to leave his full time job but who knows right now. Yes I know that. I meant the stream itself, not anything else.

  • 10:15 PM - Von Ether quoted JRedmond in post WotC Is Hiring A New D&D Game Designer
    I like how everyone is like maybe I should just quit my regular job and be a game designer. They do require that you've actually done something prior. Right in the Experience section it says this: At least three product credits (books, board games, video games, and the like) required, tabletop or digital RPGs preferred. Welcome to the hobby. Where very GM has secret hopes of becoming a pro game designer, a novelist, a comic book writer/artist, or all of the above! Let's not forget all the hopefuls during the early days of d20 who charged their latest fantasy heart breaker print run on their personal credit cards. ... Which honestly is how a LOT of RPG and game companies got their start.

I often see responses from designers/writers in forum threads when someone mentions their work. There are probably a lot of people on this board who meet the requirement. I know I do either through dmsguild work or some credited work I did in the 90's for a video game developer.

  • 08:33 PM - Oofta quoted JRedmond in post Xanathar's Guide to Everything gets the Shadow Sorcerer
    Personally I was thinking more Raistlin than some whiny goth kid. The whiny goth kid probably thinks they are playing Raistlin. :p Don't get me wrong, in the right hands and the right game it might be fun. The gal who plays Strix on Dice Camera Action plays this kind of character ... but she has a sense of fun about playing it that bleeds through. Anyway I'm done with my cranky old man bit. Feel free to resume explaining how you're so excited to play a clinically depressed moping flop of misery. :)

    Any update? Is WotC going to make you pull all non-SRD content like they did with OrcPub?As I wrote in my post, I will post an update when I know anything new. WotC says it will take them up to 6 weeks to respond, so don't hold your breath...
