    Besides D&D, what are you playing?

    Mostly the old 1e stuff, but the GM has some of his own house rules he's adapted over the years. We basically use the Top Secret S.I. wound system, for example.

    Besides D&D, what are you playing?

    We do a kind of rotating GM thing. We'll be pausing our 5e game soon to go back to WEG Star Wars for a while.

    Sign me up for this and a Kamigawa book, too.

    5E DC Comics Publishing Dungeons & Dragons Sourcebook

    I'm just not a comics guy, but that summary is basically what I got trying to Google this and see what everyone is excited about. I'm assuming there has to be more going on there. Do they have a special type of magic or something that would make a cool subclass? Or just neat monsters? I'm...

    Critical Role The New D&D Book Is 'The Explorer's Guide to [Critical Role's] Wildemount!' By Matt Mercer

    Wasn't the first Critical Role book available at DriveThru? I'm not finding it now.

    RPGs Have a Health Problem

    I don't care where anybody is on the health insurance part, but this "all the spending is Military" thing is a very popular misconception. select FY 2018, since that's the last year with complete data. Medicare (generally healthcare for old people) $1.1T National Defense...

    Frylock's Gaming & Geekery Challenges WotC's Copyright Claims

    We might have a distinction without a difference here. If the first generation licensees are required to continue the offer to all subsequent licensees, then it doesn't matter if WotC ends the offer or not. By your reasoning, once the SRD was reproduced by anyone other than WotC, that...

    Frylock's Gaming & Geekery Challenges WotC's Copyright Claims

    How on earth do they not have that trademarked? I mean, I understand mechanically how it works, but who the bleep is in charge of this stuff?

    Eberron: Rising from the Last War Coming For D&D In November

    If they keep releasing books right at the end of your campaigns, could I convince you to run some Dark Sun?

    DMs Guild Classics Wishlist

    MC13: Monstrous Compendium Al-Qadim Appendix Seems odd they'd give us everything but that one.

    DMs Guild Classics Wishlist

    Is there a copy of the 2e Land of Fate monster supplement out there and I'm just missing it? I admit I could just be failing at The Internet, but it seems like the only major missing title from that setting at the DM's Guild.

    Kara-Tur vs Rokugan

    At the risk of being on-topic, I'd prefer Kara-Tur. Rokugan is cool, but it's relationship to L5R carries a lot of assumptions with it. Kara-Tur feels like it's easier to drop in something new and say "it's D&D" and have it all work.

    Children's "hero" cartoons with non-male leads

    Relying on my memory is dangerous, but I think Buena Girl from Mucha Lucha was a good character. And I realize this is basically that Token Female Character, but I don't think The Baroness from GI Joe gets enough credit. Any plan she was working always went better than whatever crap Cobra...

    TSR Ryan Dancey: Acquiring TSR

    I think it's very valuable to keep stuff like this around. This story happened in 1997 and was written in 2000. A lot of people seem to get into gaming in their early teens, so this basically happened about two generations ago in Gamer History Reckoning.
