    1E Dragon Reflections #23

    Some of these articles sound very familiar, but the cover doesn't. Were any of them in any of the Best Ofs?

    OSR OSR Gripes

    As Pogre said, you just have to go for it. Back when that was pretty much the only way to play we either soldiered on or made up our own rules. Nowadays I'd need a really good hook to go back to that style of gameplay, as there are so many others available. On the other hand, if you've never...

    5E Lighting Effects

    This is why I ignore 5E lighting conventions, and just wing it.

    5E Heroes of Baldur's Gate is a D&D Adventure From Bioware's Baldur's Gate Designer

    Boo! (But I'll bet he doesn't have any stats.)

    SF Unboxing The Starfinder Beginner Box

    No price? It must be hecka expensive.

    General I Do Declare! Do you? (POLL)

    Nope. I've done it back in the day, but even then it usually didn't last long. Just one more thing to keep track of.

    Who in the World is James M. Ward?

    Excellent! Mr. Ward has always been a favorite, and I look forward to reading his stories with considerable anticipation.

    5E Mythological Figures: Sir Lancelot (5E)

    Sir Prancealot was invented by the French to try to steal the thunder from the English King Arthur stories. (Well, they stole them from the Welsh, so I guess fair's fair.)

    UA Into the Wild: New Unearthed Arcana Covers Wilderness Exploration

    As is usual for me, I've only read the first page of comments, so someone else may have already made the point I'm about to. What if the characters have DIRECTIONS? That is not mentioned in the article, and should have an effect on the DC. And where's the forth part of the rules, camping?

    TSR What TSR-era RPG should get an official 5e reboot?

    Was on the fence as to who should get my vote, Gamma World or Marvel Super Heroes. Decided on MSH, mostly because GM has had several incarnations and MSH was great in a somewhat different way. (Besides, it ain't agonna happen anyway.) And you (Lowkey) get XP for no Buck Rogers! (I have nothing...

    UA WotC's Mearls Presents A New XP System For 5E In August's Unearthed Arcana

    So, if you rescue a pushcart salesman from a big city, it isn't worth a thing.

    Release Star Trek Adventures: Core Rulebook Released in PDF!

    Looks that way, which is a no-go for me.

    5E Why not write spellbooks in Common?

    I very rarely play Wizards, but decided to play my first in 5E recently. So I got to thinking, why is it that all Wizard's write their spellbooks in a code that only they can read? How does that square with having a Wizard mentor (being an apprentice)? Wouldn't it make more sense for the Master...
