    Kickstarter Too many Kickstarter projects? Is Kickstarter the new d20 glut?

    I think it will all blow over soon, after a bunch of ill-advised projects fail. But who knows? Maybe it'll become the de facto publishing method for small press RPGs.

    Zenimax files trademark for "Dragonborn"

    This is a message board post by Griego promoted to a news article. Zenimax, publishers of the Elder Scrolls games, has filed a trademark application for Dragonborn, "an individual who has been born with the blood and soul of a Dragon, but the body of a mortal." The application covers...

    Retraining?

    Haven't seen this come up yet... 5e should definitely consider incorporating retraining rules. As the composition of my group has changed from vets to a mix of vets and newbies, one issue that crops up is the newbies are reluctant to choose class features, feats, etc due to fear of picking "the...

    D&D 3E/3.5 1e-3e vs. 4e: The inverted difficulty curve in D&D 5e design

    For my 3.5 group, the grid was definitely harder for the newbies.

    D&D 3E/3.5 5E solve me this: 3Es and 4Es biggest problem

    Yeah, just pile more stuff on the DM's plate, I don't have a life or anything! :rant: No thanks, I'd rather be focused on building great adventures within a great setting. Much better use of my time.

    "Whoops! Browser Settings Incompatible"

    I'm seeing a lot of links with this text. Example: http://www.enworld.org/forum/general-rpg-discussion/316012-divided-gaming-group-looking-help-2.html#post5766998 It seems every link to the WotC site/boards shows up as "Whoops! Browser Settings Incompatible". What is this error? Is it on my...

    D&D 3E/3.5 [3.5] Khyber knife fighter build?

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have a look. :D

    D&D 3E/3.5 [3.5] Khyber knife fighter build?

    Knifefighter sounds great, right up the alley. Where can I find the Exoticist? That knife sounds like it was adapted directly from the Khyber knife. I definitely am going for a d6 dmg weapon, whether taken as-is or modified. And yeah, it does look like a huge steak knife, sans serrations...

    D&D 3E/3.5 [3.5] Khyber knife fighter build?

    I just finished reading Three-Bladed Doom by Robert E Howard (great story, not a Conan or fantasy story, it's set in post-WWI Afghanistan), and at one point the main character (El Borak, an American expatriate who has "gone native" and is known throughout the Middle East for his fighting...

    Concealment miss chance applies to critical hit confirmation rolls?

    If you score a threat on a target that has concealment, does the critical confirmation roll also have a 20% miss chance? I could swear I read something somewhere that said this was not the case, but maybe I'm imagining things.

    D&D 3E/3.5 Worst 3.5 rule from core books?

    I would rule that characters with low-light vision and especially darkvision ignore concealment due to shadowy illumination, but not due to fog, smoke, terrain (tall grass, thick jungle, etc). In addition, darkvision (but not low-light vision) ignores concealment due to total darkness.

    Underwater combat

    The underwater combat table on page 92 of the DMG lists modifiers for attack/damage, movement, etc. Now, according to this table, if you make your Swim check, your movement is half with a full-round action and quarter with a move action, but there is an entry at the bottom labeled "None of the...

    Moving through squares occupied by non-combatants

    The PHB is pretty specific about moving through squares occupied by friendly creatures (you can do so freely, except you can't charge) or opponents (you can't, unless the opponent is helpless or you overrun), but what about creatures or NPCs that are neutral to both sides? Also, what if a...
