    3.5 What was the name of the book that tried to deconstruct AC/Saves/Etc?

    Years ago, pre 4e and Pathfinder, I recall someone had published a book that had tables of all the sort of expected ranges for various modifiers in 3rd or 3.5 edition (I forget which). I'm trying to find it as a reference for a discussion about older editions.

    Castlevania? [Interest Check]

    If anyone else caught the Castlevania Anime that was recently put out, I thought a particular moment in that was somewhat interesting. For those of you that didn't, slight spoilers, but essentially one year after the burning of a "witch" all hell breaks loose in the capital city and demons...

    5E [IC] Adventures in Ashwell: The Edge of Dispater

    The sound of hundreds of workers can be heard in the north-eastern corner of Ashwell. A wall is under construction, both here and elsewhere in the city. The stone is a mix of local material, some excavated from the ruins, and imported granite from a quarry several hundred miles away. The noise...

    5E [IC] Creamsteak's Princes of Elemental Evil II

    The journey to Rivergard is handled relatively easily. A strange burnt orange sky hangs a bit too long in the day. The keep is in many ways much how some of you had left it some time ago. You find most of the facility vacant. Still, just below the main keep is a hidden store.

    5E [OOC] Adventures in Ashwell: The Edge of Dispater

    Initial recruiting thread for this game. I don't have a lot of setting design done like maps or the world as a whole. I've set up a quick two page PDF with some basic concepts. Take a look if you're interested.

    [Pre-Recruiting] Ashwell

    This thread is not a recruitment thread, more of a Q&A and establishing some initial interest. Ashwell is a setting idea I have that is inspired a bit by settings like Ptolus or the Tower of Druaga. In some ways it calls back to ideas I had some 15+ years ago, and also to some of the "spires"...

    5E [IC] Creamsteak's Princes of Elemental Evil II

    Upon returning to Red Larch the town was in recovery from an attack. While the party had been away, cultists of the air temple exacted an unfair retribution against the town triggering a tornado with many casualties. The cultists were defeated, and reinforcements and supplies have been sourced...

    5E [OOC] A Light Hearted Princes of Elemental Evil Hack and Slash II

    I've decided I need a clean break with the current game to try to regain some momentum. To briefly recap, adventurer's have confronted and wounded a variety of cults in the Dessarin Valley. First, they openly defeated water cultists at Rivergard Keep. (4th level) Then they sacked the first...

    Warhammer 40K Deathwatch?

    I have the Deathwatch core rulebook from 2010. Never played it. Have not even read it really. That said, I'm an armchair fan and am slightly considering running a fairly loose/light game. I only know the reviews and I will say upfront I'll probably be fairly loose with the rules and primarily...

    5E [IC] Creamsteak's Storm King's Thunder: Waterdeep

    The gnome scoffs and mutters "Hedge-born churl." She goes to start playing the harp as if to willfully ignore someone in a conversation. The half-orc bows and says, "My schedule is thick with obligations, but I am sure I could fit you in for at least an informal practice lesson." The...

    5E [IC] Escape from Castle Illvithar

    The gateway definitely appears to have once been used in multiple directions, but it has been shut off. Something holds this place in check at the moment. As the unlikely pair walks across the desolate landscape a spicy almost cinnamon scent seems to hang in the air. It seems it will take quite...
