    5E Who Should Be my BBEG?

    How about... One of the PCs? After quests versus all of the likely baddies, a PC dies. Only to return as the BBEG all along.

    Release Monte Cook’s Numenera setting comes to 5e with Beneath the Monolith

    This is such a great setting. I wish it had more interest, but nearly everyone seems glued to the community outrage threads. Definitely look into and try out the Numenara setting when you have time. Truly amazing work and I wish it had the love of an official D&D setting.

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    You don't realize the hypocrisy of that. You're basically telling someone else, who wants those things in their game, to now have to do the work to add it back to their games. I don't want to walk 20 feet to my mailbox. I remove it, so now the mailman walks the 20ft for me. People who know...

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    The issue isn't so much about it being impossible, but of some wanting it to be the only possibility in the book. Having played the game for decades now, I've sampled/played iterations of every race and varying origins from the PHB norm. They are all valid. Add more, remove none.

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    You cut out some important language of my quote. Casting it aside by completely removing it. I'm 100% for the racial entries adding more options of each race's heritage beyond the norm. But don't just delete the original. Add more. Some of the loudest voices when stuff removed. Deleted from...

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    The background of many D&D races, and their origins in other fantasy depictions, is heavily-steeped in the gods and their offspring/creations. Casting it aside to be removed completely is very close-minded. It's just a different take on the original complaint.

    My half-mind flayer is a person, and his name is Anakin. Citizens of Waterdeep will be welcoming this good-natured character with open arms.

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    An example of why things shouldn't just be removed: One of my offline group members is of Roma descent. His favorite setting? Ravenloft. The reason? Vistani He loves their Romani touch(due to his heritage) and their supernatural atmosphere. Another Roma thinks they're insensitive and wants...

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    facepalm Half-elves are the spawn of.. Elves, right? A civilized species from a civilized deity. They are also Gold, Blue, White, Gray, Black, etc. Depending on their environment. Half-orcs and Tieflings are the spawn of monsters. Demons, devils and a fell race of a dread God of slaughter...

    5E Orion Black No Longer a D&D Designer [UPDATED!]

    Publicly burning a bridge of the magnitude Orion has done, in an already small industry, was probably the worst decision for finding more freelance work or landing a permanent position. Regardless of who is in the wrong or how truly wrong anyone's actions were, he definitely didn't think of the...

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    A species in a fantasy world, brought into being by an evil god, with a bloodline thinned to the point of having an option to be a player character, with the lore stigma of having ancestors of evil God spawn. ..Is racist? Forcing a real world judgment on a fantasy concept to create a connection...

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    The thousands of players who've been punished playing the many Drizzt Do'Urden clones think this is a nonsense overreaction. Sure, changing it to something that is more malleable for newer players or rules-lawyers that cannot/will not modify things, is a good decision. But asinine reasons like...

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    Thanks for another example of the typical argument of telling others what they mean and believe to validate self-opinion. Reacting and overreacting are not the same thing. You can do the former without the latter.

    General Two underlying truths: D&D heritage and inclusivity

    They are saying this overreacting to everything is a waste of time or they are aboard the white outrage train? Being Native American, I feel like I'm watching two trains hitting each other in slow motion. There will be no middle ground. One side will push through or the other.

    Here's Some Previews of Esper Genesis' Master Technicians Guide

    Proceeds to give a long, fantastic, detailed explanation. Calls it his 2 cents. Lmao. Bravo though, that's exactly what I was looking for.
