    5E Dark Sun doesn't actually need Psionics

    No Dark Sun without psionics for me. If that's what the choice comes down to, I'd rather they did something else than did "Dark Sun" without psionics rules.

    5E And just like that, no one cares about Frostmaiden any longer

    Personally, I'm still excited for Frostmaiden. I just don't have much to say about it. I'm not particularly excited for Tasha's, largely because Xanathar's didn't impress me at all. But, again, I've avoided saying that until now because I didn't want to threadcrap - if others are excited for...

    Unpopular Opinion: People Shouldn't Review Adventures They Haven't Run

    I don't think it's realistic to insist on the reviewer having played the adventure before reviewing - as noted, there's a timeliness to reviews after which they're of limited value. And getting the adventure read and played within that window can be a tall order. Besides, even playing the...

    News Digest for the Week of August 7

    That Star Trek bundle looks really good. Conversely, that situation with Onyx Publishing looks really bad.

    5E Anyone else just want a straight up Monster Manual II?

    Before they produced Volo's and Mord's Guides, I would very much have liked an MM2. As it is, the utility of such a book is limited - like others, I have more monsters than I'd ever use, so it would need to be something really special to interest me. That said, what I would be interested in is...

    5E DMG: hard rules or just DM advice?

    Advice. And, frankly, barely even that. Other than the magic items and some of the tables, there's very little in the DMG that has seen use in my games, and I'm just not feeling the lack. I'm starting to come to the view that the rulebook provided in the "Essentials Kit" is a better...

    5E What To Do With Racial ASIs?

    I'm leaning towards getting rid of them. If you want to reflect the fact that half-orcs are particularly strong, give your half-orc a high strength score. My inclination would be to simply remove them entirely - everyone just has lower stats across the board (and all humans use the "choose a...

    5E Revisiting revised core rulebooks

    I think a new edition soon is somewhat more likely than it was previously - if WotC are serious about some of the lore changes, they probably need to be baked into the core, and they probably also need to break backwards-compatibility enough to 'force' people to update. That said, a new edition...

    5E What Makes an Orc an Orc?

    The way I handle it is that my setting lore will describe what an orc (or elf, dwarf, etc) 'is' within the context of the setting. However, players are then free to pay as much or as little of that as they want when running their characters - at best, they're a suggestion. At some future point...

    General How long do you like your campaigns?

    About a year. Which obviously means something very different if we meet for one hour per week than it did when we met for six.

    General How long does a body take to decompose in a bag of holding?

    One day after stashing them, he'll come back and find them gnawed. Two days later, and only bones are left. And three days later, and the bag will be empty. What you've described is exactly how a bag of devouring is born...

    WotC Older D&D Books on DMs Guild Now Have A Disclaimer

    This is probably the best response they could have made. Sadly, it turns out that the only lesson history has for us is that nobody ever learns from history.

    How do you feel about learning new rule systems?

    I'll play anything one of my friends wants to run. At this point in time I can't see myself ever learning a new rule system to run myself... though I have said that before.

    5E WotC's Jeremy Crawford Talks D&D Alignment Changes

    The rate things are going they're going to have to publish 6e urgently, just to update the lore.

    WotC Dungeons & Dragons Fans Seek Removal of Oriental Adventures From Online Marketplace

    If WotC are serious about dealing with the issue, then where there genuinely is a problem (as, in some cases, there is) they will need to take action. In the case of OA, that probably means removing it from sale or, at the very least, adding a disclaimer. And certainly, they shouldn't try to...
