    D&D General Githyanki Incursion

    Yeah, Scales of War is kind of interesting in that it incorporates the events of some adventures from 3E and prior as canon despite 4E changing a lot of details about the cosmology and lore. IIRC, a few 4E sources mentioned that some version of the events of the Savage Tide Adventure Path...

    D&D General Githyanki Incursion

    I just found this more extensive summary of the githyanki-related events of Scales of War, which apparently takes place with the assumption that the events of the Dungeon #100 adventure The Lich-Queen's Beloved had transpired before the events of Scales of War.

    D&D General How Was Your Last Session?

    I came up with the idea of a sentient iron door named Fangdooria made by a vampire artificer on the fly last night. I started out with "a magic mouth appears and begins talking" and ended up with "it requests having blood smeared on it but, unfortunately for it, lacks the ability to consume or...

    D&D General Githyanki Incursion

    A githyanki invasion was featured in the 4E adventure path Scales of War (IIRC, the Dragon #309 article was cited as inspiration), with the adventure Garaitha's Anvil involving a githyanki shipyard and the adventure Tyranny of Souls featuring the city of Tu'narath as its setting. During the...

    Critical Role Critical Role Campaign 3 Discussion (SPOILERS)

    So Laudna seems to have some connection to the Briarwoods, but that almost seems too obvious at this pont.

    Critical Role Critical Role Campaign 3 Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Count me in as another that didn't care for Exandria Unlimited. Did not care for Aabria's DMing style at all compared to Matt's. I've heard she's been better in other things, though, so maybe part of the problem was how radically different she was from Matt. However, I am kind of excited about...

    D&D General Critical Role Video game in the works.

    The Luxon religion at least is pretty different, though I'm curious how the goddess of death feels about a religion that gives followers access to reincarnation over multiple lifetimes.

    D&D 5E WotC Announces New Critical Role Hardcover Adventure

    I get the feeling that a lot of people on here probably won't get this reference (or maybe you will, IDK), but the handling of goblinkin in Explorer's Guide to Wildemount reminds me a lot of the Gems from Steven Universe: Goblinkin/Gems were created in various kinds and instilled with the...

    D&D General Critical Role Video game in the works.

    The more traditional Lolthite drow still exist in the setting, though they haven't had that much exposure. Even then, the "good" drow of the Kryn Dynasty are kind of pushy about their unusual religion, and a number of Lolthite drow hide among them who hate the influx of non-drow into their society.

    Fizban's Treasury of Dragons: An In-Depth Review

    I'll be honest, the First World and dragon echoes lore still feels weird to me, but this review has me a bit more tempted to get the book. I'm curious about how the magic associated with dragon hoards works, for one thing.

    D&D 5E What is Your Favorite WotC 5E Setting Book, and Why?

    Though I voted for Wildemount I will agree the setting is definitely more generic than something like Eberron. It does have the pluses of a very comprehensive setting book and being only a few years old, whereas the other fairly generic fantasy setting of 5E, the Forgotten Realms, has decades of...

    D&D 5E What is Your Favorite WotC 5E Setting Book, and Why?

    Most of the adventure books prevent "micro settings", which is why I included "adventure books" as an option (though most of them are over locations in the Forgotten Realms).

    D&D 5E What is Your Favorite WotC 5E Setting Book, and Why?

    If you answer the poll with "an adventure book", please comment with which one you mean and why. For me personally it has to be Explorer's Guide to Wildemount, for the following reasons: Included after the descriptions of the gods are many "lesser idols" that can serve as warlock patrons. It's...

    D&D General Critical Role Video game in the works.

    I imagine the way Critical Role is growing today is similar to how things were when the Forgotten Realms was first growing into D&D's most popular setting and getting tie-in books and games and such (I wouldn't know for certain; I was born in 1988). The difference here being that it got its...

    D&D 5E Wow! No more subraces. The Players Handbook races reformat to the new race format going forward.

    That sounds like it would end up repeating a lot of information for no good reason, honestly.
