    Worlds of Design: Barbarians at the Gates – Part 2

    "despite the examples we have of Conan, Fafhrd, Éowyn the Shieldmaiden of Rohan, Khal Drogo, Asterix the Gaul, Tarzan, John Carter of Mars, Thundarr and He-Man." I'm not sure I would classify child-marrying brother-in-law murdering Khal Drogo as a "heroic protagonist". And don't even get me...

    What to run when you are done with D&D?

    Have you considered sports?

    D&D 5E List of All 33 Races in Mordenkainen's Monsters of the Multiverse

    Had Mike Godwin been primarily a D&D player, Godwin's Law would read: "As any D&D discussion grows longer (regardless of topic or scope), the probability of a complaint about 4E or Warlords approaches 1."

    D&D General Suggested executions for when your dice commit capital offenses

    The first dice? It just gets retired. The second, third, forth, et al? They get super-glued to the first one, into a terrifying Katamari Dice-macy ball to be rolled for damage by mind-bending Far Realm Abominations.

    D&D General How am I a D&D outlier? How are you one?

    Against current common wisdom, I think there actually IS a right way to play D&D. And I'm not telling you.

    D&D 5E List of All 33 Races in Mordenkainen's Monsters of the Multiverse

    "WotC won't want to rock the D&D boar anymore than Hasbro does Monopoly." I know it's just a typo. But it's one of those typos that is somehow even MORE accurate. Like "Assimar".

    D&D 5E List of All 33 Races in Mordenkainen's Monsters of the Multiverse

    "Probably because like light sensitivity, they're removing unnecessary penalties that punish the player for playing the PC with no mechanical compensation." Why does all balancing have to be additive? There's nothing wrong with penalties!

    D&D General Roleplaying Powerful Beings versus Smart-Aleck PCs

    Actual advice: Chuckle along at the amusing smart aleck comments. No need to be super serious right off the bat! Then when a lull comes, say to the player(s): "Ok. so what does your character REALLY say?" Odds are good that once they have the initial knee-jerk defiance out of their system...

    D&D 5E How much should my party pay for a WereTiger Merc?

    The Weretiger will accept any amount. After all, they are planning on killing the party and taking ALL the treasure later, right?

    D&D General Roleplaying Powerful Beings versus Smart-Aleck PCs

    "Are you a God?" "Uh...no." "THEN DIE!"

    D&D 5E Is 5E "big enough" for a Basic/Advanced split?

    Well, "Level Up" is kind of premised on the idea that would work. So this may not be the most objective audience...

    D&D General Dragons of Deceit: Check Out the Dragonlance Novel Cover

    "A MacGuffin is a Scottish actor who played Charles Xavier in multiple X-Men films." That's a McAvoy. A Macguffin is what actors call "The Scottish Play".
