    WotC D&D Gets A New Division At Hasbro

    Huh. Not a big fan of the new logo at first glance, but maybe it'll grow on me. Of course, I wasn't a big fan of their previous logo either. I think I just don't like logos with 3-D effects. I preferred the simple rectangular logo with the shooting star, before it went all bendy and swooshy.

    WotC D&D Gets A New Division At Hasbro

    The Tolkien and Warhammer crossovers appear to be purely Magic-related at this point, but I could imagine D&D being pulled in as well. (I mean, D&D is halfway to being a Tolkien crossover already.) My initial reaction to seeing that Wizards plans on doing a Tolkien Magic set was "MY CHILDHOOD...

    D&D 5E What do you want out of crafting rules?

    This is an excellent idea that would solve my issues with a pure-downtime system.

    D&D 5E What do you want out of crafting rules?

    The OP asked "What do you want out of a crafting system?" My table often has this type of quest campaign, which means that as a player, I would have little use for a pure-downtime crafting system. And I'd be sad about that, because I would like the opportunity to have "I'm a blacksmith" matter...

    D&D 5E What do you want out of crafting rules?

    This is an assumption that is wildly untrue at many tables. It's very common for a campaign to be built around a single epic quest. During this period, there may be travel time from Point A to Point B, but there is rarely an opportunity for true "downtime" where the PCs stop moving for more than...

    D&D 5E What do you want out of crafting rules?

    I would hate that. The last thing I want in D&D is to be keeping track of wolf pelts and iron ingots. IMO, a good crafting system in D&D would keep the raw materials abstract. When I said I wanted a crafting system that could be used in the field with the materials at hand, I didn't mean you...

    Shillelagh - Why no scaling?

    It keeps up fine through level 10. After that, if you're relying on cantrips for damage, you're in trouble anyway.

    D&D 5E [Updated with cover!] The D&D Book Is.... Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft!

    Zombie apocalypse? Hmm. I missed that on my initial skim of the contents. Now I'm interested. I think D&D is far better suited to "zombie apocalypse" horror than to Gothic horror. D&D is built around hacking your problems away with a big ol' meat cleaver, and that tends to wreck the Gothic...

    D&D 5E What do you want out of crafting rules?

    My biggest issue with crafting rules (setting aside the magic item crafting options in the DMG) is that the only thing they do is save you money. And 5E is notorious for giving PCs more money than they can spend. What I'd like would be rules for crafting on the fly, using whatever materials are...

    D&D 5E "Combat exhaustion" at 0 hp?

    If this rule is so flawed, you would expect that people who did implement it would encounter problems in play. So far, however, no one has mentioned this. That doesn't mean the rule has no flaws. Maybe the people who tried it are just ignoring the problems, or maybe their specific playstyle...

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Movie should follow the Deadpool model

    You can have funny stuff, even quite a lot of it, in a serious movie. It makes the serious parts hit harder. As far as tone and theme, what I want to see is fantasy-world Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones is pretty much D&D already, except with Nazis instead of orcs. Deadpool? Nope, not interested...

    D&D 5E Full Wraparound Cover Art For Ravenloft

    Yeah, it's a cheat of the kind artists use fairly regularly; it just wasn't executed well enough in this case. The artist failed their Sleight of Eye check. If you cover up Esmeralda, the cheat works. You can't see where Van Richten's eyes are pointing, so even though his head is not turned...

    D&D 5E "Combat exhaustion" at 0 hp?

    I note that the people who've actually played with this house rule say it's fine, and everyone warning of problems appears to be white-room theorizing.

    D&D 5E [Updated with cover!] The D&D Book Is.... Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft!

    This assumes somebody wants to run a horror campaign in the first place. I don't think I have ever played in a group where I would even consider trying to run a horror game. I'll probably buy this for the player options and the bestiary, though.

    D&D 5E 5e and the Cheesecake Factory: Explaining Good Enough

    What's the Latin phrase for "insulting people instead of addressing their points?"
