    It's described in the link. You start to gain angel levels. There's a bunch of bells and whistles.

    A little bit of preface here: my players are exploring the Amber Temple, looking for a way to defeat Strahd for real, thus breaking the cycle of his reincarnation. They are aware that if they defeat him, he will only free Barovia for a month or so, and then will rise again with a new moon. Two of them are from Barovia, and that's not good enough. They're looking for a permanent solution. Thus...

    Some of this stuff is OP, mostly because the player rolled very poorly for stats. With adjustments, it might be suitable for your campaign, too! Look, free stuff: https://homebrewery.naturalcrit.com/share/r1Q7bH6m3V :)

    I enjoyed 4e for what it was: an excellent tactics game. As a melee character (fighter I think?) I had a lot of fun using footwork lure and such to rearrange the enemy positions for a perfect stomp by my friends. I don't see how it harmed roleplaying in any way, because that's on the players and the GM. You can roleplay appropriately in any system, and the rulebook and dice only come out...

    Hello folks. I'm making a book cover for this game, but I'm not sure if it conveys the right feeling. If you were looking at it in your friendly neighborhood game store, what would you think it was about, without opening and reading it? You don't get a second chance at a first good impression, so please critique away. Also, yeah, the whole book is done in a retro pixel art style.

    RPGs are a creative endeavor, I think we can agree on that. Writing campaign books is similar to writing your own adventure books, and is thus literary. Writing character backstories would also classify as literary. For example, if GRR Martin was playing a rogue assassin in a D&D campaign, he could show up to session 0 with the entire Song of Fire and Ice, and say, "Hi, my name is Arya...

  • 02:41 PM - Bedrockgames quoted Ilya Bossov in post Is RPGing a *literary* endeavour?
    RPGs are a creative endeavor, I think we can agree on that. Writing campaign books is similar to writing your own adventure books, and is thus literary. . I don't see how being similar to writing an adventure book makes something literary. Most adventure books I read fall pretty far short of being literature. It is entertaining gaming material. But literature is a much higher bar. There are a few books I'd say strive for or manage to hit the level of being literary. But honestly that is an aim that has nothing to do with how good of a game book it is.
