    5E How would you wish WOTC to do Dark Sun

    I'd like them to give up the IP so it can be done in a d100 system; Runequest, Mythras, etc. I think that it can be done in 5e but to much kitchen sink concepts dilute the setting as said before.

    Why the New D&D Board Game is a Big Deal

    My first 'official' intro to D&D was also the black box of 90 (still got that bad boy). I read it and took me a while to get my head around the rules. When HeroQuest (which I originally thought was part of D&D) came out I got that too and was more inclined to play because a) easier rules to...

    Were these signals screaming, 'Space Marines!'?

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    In 2e I played a LG Drow Paladin who got up to level 9. Alignment and level/class restrictions be darned. When I play my homebrew world (2e, 5e, or C&C) there are no half-orcs (or half-elves) because goblinoids (goblins, orcs, hobgoblins, & bugbears) are all peelings of flesh from one of the...

    Good call on the He-Man. :)

    What NON-D&D fantasy art got you hooked?

    Besides Frazaetta, I always remember when my aunt first got me the time life Enchanted World Series books: https://www.amazon.com/Wizards-Witches-Enchanted-Brendan-Lehane/dp/0809452049 When I got into D&D in 89/90 those were some of my main inspiration. I think I still have them somewhere.

    5E Am I too strict?

    How about an INT check; pass & no cost, fail & you need more study, retry w/new materials, etc. Might be a compromise?

    General So what colour are your dwarfs and elfs?

    Usually I follow this rule for general settings. When running Known World my elves are either Green Wild Elves (the Atruaghin Clans), Pale & Blonde Light Elves (Alfheim), Purple Genalleth Elves (Wendar, think WoW night elves), & pale grey Ash Shadow Elves (Svartalfheim, think warhammer dark...

    Dragon age GM help required

    Someone, somewhere (can't remember) made quicker damage rules. 1d6 damage is 4 base damage, 1d6+1 is 5 base damage, 2d6 is 8, etc. You add modifiers of the associated ability and the total from the dragon dice. So a short sword (6 base) + 3 accuracy (9 total) is added to whatever the dragon...

    Dragon age GM help required

    In F-AGE, to make it more deadly we add focus of a relevant weapon to damage (bow focus to bow damage for example). We also add a +1 to damage for the level of weapon style talent you are using. So w/a Shield and Weapon Style at Journeyman w/a +2 focus the PC does +4 damage. So far it's...

    5E Intiative Score (DMG variant rule)

    I have been looking at the idea of the flat initiative score for npc/monsters (8 + Prof bonus + Dex) and have player's roll. I'm trying to think how declaration would work; everyone declares and those acting first can react off of the declaration of others.

    General Playing Nicely In The Sandbox

    Page 6 of the Player's Handbook has the sentence, "Ultimately, the Dungeon Master is the authority on the campaign and its setting, even if the setting is a published world." So I think we are ok there. This article seems little more like don't break the kingdom or save the world every...

    5E 0 HP =/= Down, Dying, and Death

    A level 1 warrior crit & killed a Sith that was hunting them in our Clone Wars campaign. Caused me to redo alot of the story on the fly but by the Force it was epic. I think the problem is when a PC can go out the same way it's not as 'epic'.
