    I agree with Kite474 that 5e is drawing a lot of people in to its own circle, but in our experience...it is like a gateway drug. When we get new people we teach them 5e. Mainly because its our core game and more recently, its what they were looking for. But after a bit they see, and we introduce, other games. Such as Shadowrun and FateCore.

    How the times have changed. Once upon a time, Adventures (or Modules) were seen more or less as a loss leader. One of the big expectations of the 3e OGL is that we'd see modules mostly coming from 3pp because they were considered too small for WotC to bother with. :D Now, in the age of Paizo, adventures are "mass appeal products". Funny how the "conventional" wisdom has shifted. You assume, of course, that Kite474 represents the conventional wisdom. :)

    Kite474: In games you run or in which you play, do players ask to make ability checks? Or do they state what they want to do in fictional terms and the DM calls for a check of some kind (if necessary)?

    Which is both great and kind of worrying. Great in that thats a crap ton of people and its always good to see more people. Worrying In the sense that what little success there is built on something kind of fragile... I guess it only serves to show how tiny this industry kind of is.You say "what little success there is," but D&D alone has been played by tens of millions of people, who have spent billions of dollars on it. There are hundreds of RPG channels on YouTube, and dozens of tabletop RPGs streamed live on Twitch at any given moment. Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes was a national bestseller. Take heart. This industry hasn't been tiny for a long, long time.

    Also I do find the idea of people being so prickly about someone giving orders kind of funny, like yes sometimes people just will take the lead hell some people even train for it. See? Confirmation that people think it's the class that gives orders. I knew it! Now if only you could learn how not be one yourself when talking about this class. ;) You figured out my secret: I'm a Warlord IRL. So I can't help it.

    Welp, off to find an old shoe and some bread batter. Though Ill be happy to eat it. Now another question habe they ever played anything on stream on the bigger side (Vampire, Shadowrun, etc) and not one page stuff? I believe Taliesin ran a weird Vampire the Masquerade one-shot - well, two-shot, technically, IIRC. Yeah, here's the first part: https://youtu.be/DTOGH6M6INE IIRC, the game has an even looser relationship with the nominal rules than usual.

    It most likely is not. This industry isnt the kind where you really bounce back unless your radically change things. I also think 5e success has full on ushered the Disney effect wherein various other competitors might as well not exists just due to the massive scale D&D inhabits. Add the lack of advertising available to other games (Ill eat a shoe the day Critical Roll plays something not D&D) and they just never really get the ball rolling. This may sound a little "The end is nigh" but I think there are dark times ahead for the industry at large. D&D isnt just the 10 ton gorilla anymore its an institution now and honestly it looks to be an institution that really will just be the only thing left with the rest just forgotten or so barely scrapping by its little more than a joke. Critical Role has played multiple non-D&D systems.

    Its certaintly bringing new people but I think the statement is a little suspect. Its not bringing new people to the HOBBY wherein they explore and try things that it has to offer both in the inde space and some older contenders (Shadowrun Warhammer, etc) Its bringing new people to D&D and from looks of it they have no desire to go anywhere else which is a dam shame Same as it ever was. D&D may be a gateway to other games (in fact, I’m sure it is) but not for everyone. Large numbers of players have never sought out any other RPG throughout D&D’s history.

D&D isnt just the 10 ton gorilla anymore its an institution now and honestly it looks to be an institution that really will just be the only thing left. That seems unlikely to me. The other games are not in general getting smaller (well except for pathfinder), they just have a lower percentage because D&D is growing so much. So if they were previously viable, I think they could still be.

I here a lot of people on these forums say they started with D&D and then moved on to other things, some times many years later. It never really happened for me, I've tried a few other systems, but I pretty much always play D&D since the '80s. As for Pathfinder I think its just on the slow death. Its a shame but generally people nowadays dont want systems that require a bit of maneuvering and as previously said the vast majority seems to be "D&D or bust". So it looses out on mechanical appeal (everyone wants "simple" games...

  • 03:02 PM - Staffan quoted Kite474 in post Hobby Games: It Was a Very Good Year
    This article feels like its ignoring several things: Evil Hat and John Cook Presents having massive layoffs, White Wolf controversy, and others just to go the usual “D&D did good so that means nothing else really matters” I get it, its the 10 ton gorilla but its not EVERYTHING in this industry There's always churn in the game industry. Evil Hat and John Wick Presents lay off some people, but on the other hand things seem to be going swimmingly for e.g. Ulisses Spiele and Modiphius, and you have some new entrants like Matt Colville's MCDM Productions. And a strong D&D is a plus for the whole hobby. If your game company sees D&D as a competitor, you're doing it wrong. Strong D&D sales lead to more stable game stores which can then expand into lesser (from a business POV) games. Also, having D&D attract a lot of new people to the hobby will lead to some of them becoming curious about other games in a few years and look for something different. Over at Geek & Sundry, which should by all rights g...

  • 04:13 PM - Jester David quoted Kite474 in post Monsters & Weapons: Two Hardcover D&D Books For Kids Coming In 2019
    So we riot if there are not at least a dozen polearms in the Weapon book right? Jokes aside, I wonder if all the art in the book is gonna be original art or if it will be reused stuff from the Dungeon Masters Guide and the like. Same with the Monster Book. 12.99 Seems cheap for an art book from a notable brand. It's a cheap product aimed at kids and selling them on the game. It's almost certainly going to be 90% recycled art.

    12.99 Seems cheap for an art book from a notable brand. Agreed. I pre-ordered it on Amazon, what with their price guarantee. As more information becomes available, I can always cancel it if I need to.

  • 04:47 PM - Jester David quoted Kite474 in post Mike Mearls on how 4E could have looked
    By that logic though whats the point of even using a system? If mechanics are that irrelevant to what actually leads to a games “good” moments I didn't say mechanics are irrelevant. Just that the best moments don't come exclusively from the mechanics. Or rather, the mechanics working as intended. * The rules of the game and the system allow for fun between the moments of exceptional fun. Because you can't plan for the memorable/ exceptional. * The rules provide a framework that sets-up the exceptional or unusual moments that become memorable. Often when a system breaks or does the unexpected, that's when the memorable occurs. * The rules provide a randomisation element. The exact random element at the wrong time causes maximum memorability. Such as a chain of crits or fumbles. You don't remember the combat where everyone rolled average and things proceeded like clockwork with no surprises, and everyone took an expected amount of damage while expending the nominal amount of resource...

  • 12:47 AM - Kramodlog quoted Kite474 in post Ravnica: Broken Pact
    I mean, speak for yourself. Im here to have grand adventures in Ravnica and whatever else the blind eternities have to offer. As for "Iconic" spells and artifacts, very few of those are actually broadly iconic. Most of them are already in the Players Handbook (Fire Ball, Counterspell, LIGHTNING BOLT). For the key artifacts most of them dont even exists between planes. Like Black Lotuses dont grow anywhere outside DominariaThere are far more iconic spells, items and monsters in MtG than Black Lotus. Without them, the setting is as meaningful as Birthright.

    So what your saying is this might have stats for Vraska right? If so... VENGEANCE FOR JARAD ALL TRAITORS SHALL FALL AND BE MERGED WITH THE ROT!!!!! I hope Agrus the Wojek (ghost now) is in the book as an NPC. Bonus points if Piveric the Imp and Feather the Angel are in as well and Teysa too.

  • 06:34 PM - Paul Farquhar quoted Kite474 in post Lore You Should Know: Ravnica
    Nope, Ravnica (and by extent other MTG planes) are all self contained. As for afterlife’s no ones really sure but there’s definitely no hells or heavens Correct me if I have anything wrong: Ravnica is a single large sphereworld, orbited by a Sun and Moon, within a chrystal sphere, stars being affixed to the inside of the sphere (pretty much as per Spelljammer cosmology).
  • 04:19 PM - Paul Farquhar quoted Kite474 in post Lore You Should Know: Ravnica
    its a spherical planet much like our own. But significantly bugger iirc What about other worlds on the same plane - are there any?

  • 07:04 AM - Charlaquin quoted Kite474 in post Mearls On D&D's Design Premises/Goals
    True, I do feel sorry for the 4e folks who really just dont have jack :):):):) anymore. As for cant pleasing everyone. That's definitely true it still I feel they could have done something to not just dash a chunk of their fanbase to the rocks. Maybe something like a WW/Onyx Path Press Translation guide? They promised up, down, and sideways that 5e would be modular, with the ability to be customized to emulate the style of whatever edition you preferred. But then when the playtest was coming to a close, and we asked, “hey, what about those modular options? Still waiting for something that can let us emulate the style of our preferred edition...” they said, “What’s the matter, the Battlemaster Fighter not enough for you?”
  • 04:03 AM - Jester David quoted Kite474 in post Mearls On D&D's Design Premises/Goals
    I think the big issue is actually finding this material as the store is kind of as useless as the APP and Steam store Start off with: https://koboldpress.com/kpstore/product/midgard-heroes-handbook-for-5th-edition-dnd-5e/ Then move to Adept program material: https://www.dmsguild.com/browse.php?filters=45680_0_0_0_0_0&page=1&sort=4a#browselist A good one is: https://www.dmsguild.com/product/228484/Xanathars-Lost-Notes-to-Everything-Else?filters=45680_0_0_0_0_0 Then check out the bestsellers: https://www.dmsguild.com/metal.php If they’ve sold that many, they’re generally worthwhile. Bam. Easy.
