    RPG Print News – Goodman Games, Modiphius, Monte Cook Games, and More

    It's odd because Goodman Games labels OAR6 as a fifth edition conversion. It says it right on the cover. But it's not actually converted at all. All of the encounters, including awarded treasure, are "faithfully reproduced" from the original adventure. In fact, the book goes so far as to say the...

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Movie: Action Packed, Funny as Hell

    I haven't laughed so hard in long time. Well played!

    Beadle & Grimm's Legendary Edition of Curse of Strahd: A Review

    I don't. I don't begrudge people who enjoy those kinds of add-on items, but it offers zero draw for me personally.

    Beadle & Grimm's Legendary Edition of Curse of Strahd: A Review

    I think we should differentiate between being able to afford something and the belief that one is getting a good value for that money. I can afford this, but to me it doesn't pack enough punch to be worth $400. We live in a digital age, so the many paper battle maps offer negligible value for my...

    Strahd Returns with Curse of Strahd Revamped: An In-Depth Review

    As long as said crypt could accommodate a box that is approximately 16 ½" tall, 13 ½" at its widest point, and 3 ¼" thick. :)

    Strahd Returns with Curse of Strahd Revamped: An In-Depth Review

    The softcover book is the same size as a standard D&D book in terms of the height and width of the cover. It’s not quite as thick as the original CoS because the monster/NPC section was removed and put in another booklet (also included in the box). The box itself is massive. I was shocked at...

    A BATMAN RPG Has Just Been Announced

    This one isn't for me. As others have already said, the d20 system has some serious limitations with regards to this type of gaming. And if you were going to play a d20 superhero TTRPG, you can pretty much cover any type of genre and power level with Mutants & Masterminds.

    Worlds of Design: Rolls vs. Points in Character Building

    As an active D&D 5e DM, I don't use dice rolling for ability scores in my game. Firstly, on average, what does it really get you? If you use the 5e standard array of [15,14,13,12,10,8] as representative of a typical point-buy character (remember, the standard array is built using the 27-point...

    Game Design Masterclass: Alien

    Loved the design overview, and it has motivated me to check out the game. I did come here for the same thing TwoSix already brought up. If you're rolling a single d6, there is ~ 16.7% chance of rolling a 6. Because any of the dice can be a 6 regardless of what any of the other dice roll, you...

    Combat in Age of Sigmar

    It's a dice pool system. The article itself has two links to previous articles about the Tests: "To make a Test, you will assemble your pool of six-sided dice (d6s) and try to meet or exceed the Difficulty Number (DN) of the Test."

    More Details About RPGSports Emerge

    Not that this necessarily carries any weight, but early Advanced Dungeons & Dragons convention games were tournaments. Players formed teams and threw themselves at the adventure trying to score as many points as they could. They were competitive. They relied on a Dungeon Master to fairly...

    Sean's Picks of the Week (0911-0915) - Heroes Will Rise Week!

    I hadn't considered that, using the dark-to-light token flips not as impetus to introduce a horror or Unknown element, but rather an indicator that it happened. I'm going to give that a try. Good tip.

    Sean's Picks of the Week (0911-0915) - Heroes Will Rise Week!

    I enjoy Chill 3rd edition. My D&D group takes occasional breaks for Chill adventures, which we really enjoy. As a GM, though, I was surprised that I liked the light/dark token system less in practice than I did when I first read the rule book. As a storyteller and game master, I don't need a...

    D&D 5E Tome of Beasts 2: Electric Beastaloo coming to kickstarter this fall

    You mentioned "non-public Kickstarter." I didn't listen to the podcast. Why won't the Kickstarter be public? Thanks for any info.

    What's Next For D&D? Live From Origins - D&D Beyond

    I'll be honest with you, Adam, even if you could sit down with everyone for 10 minutes and give your spiel, it would probably mean less than you think it would. I attended an entire presentation/game session for that whole Project Morningstar debacle at Origins a few years back. They gave a...
