    D&D 5E D&D Up 35% In 2020 While Virtual Play Rises 86%

    Well, at least it would let them stop paying royalties to Arneson, amirite?

    D&D 5E Source of maps in back of 5e DMG?

    The map on the top of page 314 is used for The Dripping Caves (goblin lair) in Storm King's Thunder. The map on page 311 is a re-do of the map from the sample adventure that appeared in the original AD&D DMG from 1979, so it was created by Gary Gygax (and has been re-drawn here). That book also...

    The Horror! of Living Skeletons

    I started playing in B/X and in those rules, skeletons did not have any special damage resistance to blades. I don't find that in the OD&D box set, either. The only special skeletons are the 2 HD version in a room in Arneson's Blackmoor, and in Gygax's Greyhawk, some that are "able to hurl their...

    The Horror! of Labyrinths

    If that were the case for the labyrinth of Daedalus & the Minotaur, then there would have been no need for Ariadne to provide Theseus with the "secret weapon" of a ball of string to find his way out (after beating the big bad) - he would just have to turn around and walk back out. The need for...

    D30 Overland Travel Mishaps

    Too bad "number appearing" isn't a thing anymore in the era of CR and balanced encounters. That is just evil enough that I might try it sometime. That's the one thing I used it for back when I was playing in the 80s.

    D30 Overland Travel Mishaps

    Am I the only one here who actually has a d30? Got it at GenCon in the mid-80s. Only found a game use for it once.

    TSR Ed Greenwood Sold The Forgotten Realms For $5,000

    I don't think Ed got screwed on that deal, as it's not like that was all he ever got paid. TSR paid $5G for the initial rights to the Realms, and in particular the contents of that first grey box, but they also kept paying him for new Realms-related product he created, including royalties on the...

    D&D 5E Ghosts of Saltmarsh spoiler location

    It was in the original version of the adventure published in Dungeon Magazine in 2004, as part of the treasure in area 22 (along with the oil of slipperiness, which is useful during the attack). This is just one of several changes from the original versions to the 5E Ghosts product where...
