    Pathfinder 2E Paizo Announces Pathfinder 2nd Edition!

    Seems good! I like Pathfinder from the time I read, but not enough to be my go-to system. Perhaps that will change. Although, I'll skip the playtest and wait for the full release. I do not have the stomach to playtest stuff (of a company) anymore...

    D&D General DMs Guild Classics Wishlist

    Ok, now I’m worried. It has been quite some time without new classic pdfs being released. Did WotC said anything more about this subject?

    Honestly, that’s why the shaman (the animist version) is so hard to fit into a setting. I like those guys a lot, but such spirits need to be an important element of the cosmology, and often I just don’t know how they fit. My cosmologies may seem to be a huge mess, but everything is organized in...

    D&D 4E Looking for thoughts on my kitbashed 4E

    Oh, guy, I just don’t want to go into post-Essential territory. The edition’s goals changed excessively to consider both states truly as one solid edition. I take everything after Essentials with serious caution. Ok, jumping over/breaking through a castle wall is not supernatural, sure, I agree...

    Honestly, at this point, I cannot tell you what is “natural” and what is “supernatural”. In the pre-scientific conception of the world, magic was an integral part of it, present at many places and events and such. Again, only in the sense Primal is a sub-source to Divine and Elemental and...

    Honestly, I feel like I’m talking to the walls here, but... “Qi” isn’t just a fancy oriental name for RPG “mana” or stuff like that. Qi (or Ki) has a much deeper meaning, which actually relates to D&D since its earliest days. We aren’t talking about your regular Arcane Magic – which is the...

    D&D 4E Looking for thoughts on my kitbashed 4E

    Honestly, that’s garbage. A significant amount of people want Samurai/Bushi, Ninja/Shinobi, Wu Jen and such as proper classes and I cannot see a reason why we couldn’t work with an oriental concept such as Ki or the Kami. I truly dislike the idea of folding many different, interesting classes...

    I think the D&D community has long abandoned the idea of “everything oriental is better”. Especially with an entire power source for them, we could create some pretty cool stuff, with a certain work. I have to disagree. For example, an air elementalist could conjure a wind wall around himself...

    Not quite that, fellow. In the first Player’s Handbook, as the book presents the concept of power sources. It’s a sidebar; I found it at page 54, but my book is the Brazilian version, so the number may be changed. After the sidebar presented the first three power sources – Martial, Arcane and...

    That' weird. I always thought (and I still do) that the Elemental Power Source (the last one to be "introduced") should be about serving the Primordials. You know, to actually make them different from the Arcane Power. It would be a nice thing. A cleric would fight with an elemental character...

    Honestly, I think far too many people confuse Power with Energy. The first is intricately connected to magic. The second, not necessarily. In fact, I don't really like explaining Magic with a scientific concept of energy.

    I wouldn't do that. The swordmage fulfils the Magic Knight trope just fine.

    Panic? No, but we still are anxious ^^

    D&D General DMs Guild Classics Wishlist

    I heard they outsource that task for a company. Honestly, I can think of two cases, one very good, and one very bad. Good: They’re taking a time to review what still isn’t available. They’re dealing with a lot of books, sometimes you must check what’s left. Bad: the company is not doing the job...

    D&D 4E Looking for thoughts on my kitbashed 4E

    Hahahaha I won’t go that far. First, contrary to popular believe, many things changed significantly between editions. It was just more subtle than changing the entire magic system, but it was significant nonetheless. In addition, in certain cases, things changed within the same edition...
