    As streams like Critical Role and The Adventure Zone start trickling into mainstream media consciousness, the tabletop RPG community finds itself entering a cultural renaissance. It’s estimated that 10% of all Kickstarters are indie developers trying to get off the ground. Every day new content is created by brilliant people, expanding our horizons and delighting players everywhere. I sat down...

    Today's issue of EN5ider takes a good hard look at one of the fundamental aspects of spellcasting and considers one way to make it more engaging: better spell components! Frequent contributor Andrew Engelbrite has over two dozen suggestions on reagents that will bring the magic back to your D&D 5E table in an article that is hard to put down once you've started reading it. Speaking of Andrew,...

    One of the biggest surprises at D&D Live 2019: The Descent was the announcement of the D&D Essentials Kit. The D&D Starter Set has already been around several years so it was surprising that that Wizards of the Coast would make another set for new players. It seemed even more odd once they explained that the Essentials Kit was not replacing the Starter Set. According to Chris Perkins...

    Acquisitions Inc. has earned a special, beloved place in the actual play segment of the game industry. In 2009, long before Critical Role, Sirens of the Realms, or Dice, Camera, Action, Penny Arcade debuted D&D games presented as podcasts. They later transitioned to video and live-play in front of an audience at conventions, and have even had a comic book. Crowds for those live events have grown...

  • 03:15 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted Nostalgia Ward in post White Dwarf Revisited — Issue #3 Oct/Nov 1977
    I could spend a year making a dungeon, and I don't think I'd ever come anywhere close to the compact complexity of Tegel Manor! Judges Guild also brings usTegel Manor (a haunted house scenario) and City State of the Invincible Overlord (a campaign centered around a city state and some spelunking) this month. Reviewer Don Turnbull criticizes this as well, stating “No DM worth his salt needs someone else to draw dungeons for him, though he would buy fully populated and stocked dungeons in order to gain fresh ideas for his own creation.”

    Happy to oblige. We have some detailed insight into the Torg version of Egypt straight from the source, along with some in depth discussion of Torg behind the scenes, a bit about why Torg minis haven't happened yet and more. I'm hoping to have it ready for the last week of the month and I'm not yet certain what form it will take, but it's exciting for anyone who enjoys Torg and other Ulisses NA games. Super cool. Thank you :)

    I recently spoke with the project lead for Torg Eternity. He says it's doing quite well and that players are liking it. Previously, I had little experience with Torg, but I've been getting heavily into it lately. It's an amazing game, with some fantastic upcoming material. I'm glad that it's doing well for them - my group is enjoying it (when we aren't playing 13th Age). I'm the only one who played (well, ran actually) original flavor Torg for any length of time though (4 years of a single long running campaign in the 90s) - for most of them it's a completely new game. I'm very happy with the new system - it has that right mix of nostalgia for the original system and simplification of the rules so that may old man brain can handle the game now. I think if I tried to run OG Torg these days I'd run into rules fatigue...

  • 08:33 PM - Koloth quoted Nostalgia Ward in post Last Minute Gifts: A Miniature Guide
    I love Miniature Market! A gift card for them would be a great gift as well. Great suggestion. Filled up several plastic storage bins with out of the box collectable D&D minis when WOTC was supporting the Miniature Combat game. A lot of the commons were 10 cents each. Painted numbers on the tops of the bases to aid in tracking HP and other items of note when there were a bunch of the same fig in play. Got several of the larger figures for $3~5. IIRC the red T-Rex thing and Frost Giants were common figs.

  • 01:23 PM - Rya.Reisender quoted Nostalgia Ward in post Burning Questions: What's the Worst Thing a DM Can Do?
    A major emphasis or strict adherence to specific rules. I love the mechanics of D & D as much as the next guy, but an over emphasis on rules can render an otherwise fun adventure tedious. I'm the opposite. I need a DM that absolutely strict with the rules and doesn't add any house rules (and rulings only when he can provide a source e.g. a tweet by Jeremy Crawford). I want to play the game as it was intended by the creators and not what the DM likes it to be. The DM insists upon railroading the players and not accounting for their ingenuity. Yeah, it sucks that on occasion, the players will completely bypass that insane dragon encounter you spent all afternoon building, but you have the ability as a DM to improvise right along with them and figure out a way to work that encounter back into a new path. As a DM, always has a contingency plan for unexpected player action. It doesn’t always work, but at least we have fun. Depends for me. I think a DM doesn't need to accept everything. Like if the play...

    I used to subscribe to this box. While I loved my metal dice, I kept receiving the exact same set for 3 months, so I cancelled. It was a great value when it was more varied. Nice review! Yikes, that’s not great.

    They resurrected Endless Quest. Fantastic! I still have (and occasionally play) my old Endless Quest and Fighting Fantasy game books. Have not played Fighting Fantasy for years but I liked the Lone Wolf ones better as you carried over the story from book to book.

  • 04:25 PM - Morrus quoted Nostalgia Ward in post D&D In Ready Player One? (SPOILERS)
    FWIW, Cline rewrote the gates for the film version and states in a recent Wired interview that Tomb of Horrors is not one of the challenges. Instead, there's a car race with sci fi and movie cars and something involving an 80s horror film. My money is on Nightmare on Elm Street. Can confirm. Saw it last night. Car race instead of Tomb of Horrors. Wrong guess on the horror film which is the second key though.

  • 05:16 PM - Celebrim quoted Nostalgia Ward in post D&D In Ready Player One? (SPOILERS)
    The scene in the book is long and detailed. I deducted a star from the book because the scene wasn't detailed enough for my geek self. In particular, there are several rooms in the Tomb which would require an extremely imaginative solution to do solo without even so much as a potion even if you had full knowledge of the trap. One example is the room of green and brown curtains. For the life of me, I can't think of an obvious solution for a single low level PC to get by the room by themselves without using magic, and unlike the author's assertion that the tomb contains everything you need to get through it, that's only partially true. For example, it does have the magic ring you need to sacrifice and it does have a trueseeing item that lets you find the well hidden secret door, and the gems you need to get them, and in many cases you imagine a plan to get them as a low level character, there are still moments where a potion of flying is really welcome and you just don't have one to use....

  • 12:01 PM - Malovech quoted Nostalgia Ward in post Looking At Dungeon Tiles Reincarnated
    This sounds cool. I've always wondered about using an LED TV or a projector for games, but always find myself going back to mats, tiles and theatre of the mind. What's your set up like for this? A tv (actually a 27" monitor) with a piece of clear plexiglass on the top. I use some styrofoam blocks to keep it off the table a bit and connect a laptop to it and run MapTool on it and my DMing laptop. Then I just fog of war the whole deal as we play. If I did it again, I would get a 4k 40" TV so we'd have even more room, but this is working out just fine.

  • 07:27 PM - Slit518 quoted Nostalgia Ward in post How do they make those good books? And how do I do something with OpenOffice?
    Adobe Creative Suite. I use InDesign and Photoshop mostly. There's a great website for monster/adventure templates in the 5e style here: http://homebrewery.naturalcrit.com/ As an alternative, GIMP would probably work in lace of Photshop and Scribus as a substitute for InDesign. Thanks for the answers! I will look into Scribus, as I've been using OpenOffice for a while now. P.S. The link you set up doesn't seem to link up to what you wanted it to.

  • 12:31 AM - Charles Dunwoody quoted Nostalgia Ward in post Face The Brutality Of The Dark Sun Campaign Setting
    I loved Dark Sun during my AD & D days. It never captured my interest quite like Spelljammer or Dragonlance, but certainly holds a special place in my heart. The Thri-Kreen are bad ass. I spent far too many all-nighters playing the computer game. We have two thri-kreen in the party. The ranger struggles with his hunger when he promises a defeated enemy he won't eat them. He hasn't reneged on a promise yet.

  • 01:22 AM - LordNightwinter quoted Nostalgia Ward in post Who You Gonna Call? Looking At West End Games' Ghostbusters RPG
    Let's talk. I would be interested in acquiring a new copy. Mine is pretty torn up. As I mentioned in the piece, I had to improvise for the ghost die. I could always use new ID cards and Equipment cards. PM me if you decide to part with it. Unfortunately for me the copy I picked up was used and it wasn't treated with collector's care. There is dishing on the cover and one side of the box is torn. The cards aren't in the greatest shape but they all seem to be there. Plus I have the GM screen and adventure and Hot Rod of the Gods and the Pumpkin Panic one for GB International. EDIT but I do have the Dice for it, including the Ghost Die.
