    A Review Of Advanced Lovers & Lesbians

    You roll to Hit On someone by making an Attract Roll against the target's Ardor Class. It's pretty simple really. Disclaimer: if it isn't obvious, I have no idea how it works.

    D&D General Read The Beginning Of Dragonlance: Dragons of Deceit!

    That's true, and the Legends series is, well, legendary. But tell me, what longstanding canon bits of the setting were at risk of being retconned/erased at that point? We live in different times now. And I am leery of what treating a pivotal aspect of the series as a cheap gimmick might bring...

    D&D General Read The Beginning Of Dragonlance: Dragons of Deceit!

    Seems promising enough, though I'm a bit leery of the whole time travel angle. I guess we will see soon.

    D&D 5E New Unearthed Arcana Today: Giant Themed Class Options and Feats

    Philistine. That is . . . Oops.

    D&D 5E New Unearthed Arcana Today: Giant Themed Class Options and Feats

    And I'm 100% cool with that approach. I'm a much bigger fan of gaining cross-class abilities (for example) piecemeal through feats than wholesale by multiclassing. The giant themed feats look pretty cool, and I'm a fan of the flavor they bring. I wonder what product they're heralding, though.

    D&D General If the king has no children could he name his wives cousin, whose young enough to be her son, as heir to the throne?, after all he's only a in law

    That's a really good point, and in Eberron setting canon we've even seen a ruler (who is a vampire) pretend to be his own descendant. Of course, if a character died of old age, even True Resurrection won't bring them back, so non-undead magic options probably wouldn't help a whole lot on many...

    D&D General If the king has no children could he name his wives cousin, whose young enough to be her son, as heir to the throne?, after all he's only a in law

    Something a friend of mine (who lives in a country ruled by a king) pointed out is that a royal heir's acceptance depends mostly on how well known/liked they are prior to ascending to the throne. If the heir apparent has been kept a secret and is unknown to the populace/nobility but appears...

    TSR Am I The Only One Buying Up the DMs Guild Reprints?

    I picked up a reprint of the D&D Rules Cyclopedia, because I've been kicking myself for selling my original copy for 29 years. That's been it for me, really, though if they offer a hardcover Champions of Mystara I'll grab that one too. I still have my old Spelljammer and Al-Qadim box sets and...

    How Many Minis Do You Have?

    I have a HeroQuest set plus expansions from the 90s that is fully painted, the relaunch set from last year that isn't painted at all (yet), plus over 400 minis from the two Blacklist Games Fantasy Series Kickstarters that are chilling in a Florida warehouse with no delivery ETA. Plus I have a...

    This comment really needs a laughing-while-crying response.

    Asking for Reviews

    The struggle is real. No matter how good your product is, it's super hard to get the attention of reviewers unless that product is already a hit. We got lucky, and our Zakhara campaign guide unexpectedly took off like a rocket, at which point we had lots of reviews and attention. And I sure...

    D&D General Monsters of Spelljammer (part 1)

    Nice overview! I'be always loved Spelljammer, partly because I think it illustrates the far-out possibilities of D&D better than any other setting before or since. Alternate physics, super weird creatures, simplistic and fantastic but consistent internal logic and rules - Spelljammer has it...

    More HeroQuest, but DCC soon! (My new group consists of my 8yo, my 8yo's classmate, the classmates father, and someone I met in apprenticeship classes. My 8yo is an old hand at TTRPGs, as is the person I met in my classes, but my kids friend and her father are brand new to playing. I've long...

    D&D 5E D&D Cartoon Character Miniatures Are Coming!

    That's a good point. I always loved Diana (even when I was a little kid) and I remember being disappointed that while she was always 2nd in command, she didn't get more room to shine. But Sheila did always get shoved to the side, and that's too bad. I never minded Bobby, but if I had to rank...
