    Cyberpunk RED Has A November 14 Release Date

    Of course...the other members of Billy Idol’s punk band, Generation X and they have what still may be the most cyberpunk video ever.

    Cyberpunk RED Has A November 14 Release Date

    Can’t this be played “theater of the mind” style or does it require battlemaps?

    D&D 5E Kate Welch on Leaving WotC

    agreed, but "the new user experience for Dungeons & Dragons is piss poor"? Really? piss-poor? Anyway, enjoy the weekend, y'all!

    D&D 5E Kate Welch on Leaving WotC

    I'm sorry this was experienced, but that's a people problem. How can WotC fix this and enforce pleasantries? I mean, you can find bastards on the basketball court. Does that mean 'basketball' has a poor user experience?

    D&D 5E Kate Welch on Leaving WotC

    But videogames can handhold, show, and guide where as RPGs and Boardgames do not have that AI entity to help out. It's the same thing as having someone else show you the way. As I mentioned, 'How to Play' videos are huge and I know many gamers who learn the board game they bought through videos...

    D&D 5E Kate Welch on Leaving WotC

    Eh, I'm not sure. I've run the game, but they were able to make characters and understand the rules through the Essentials box they picked up at Target. That box does a great job of guiding a new player through the rules and character creation, what with its suggested character builds. I had to...

    D&D 5E Kate Welch on Leaving WotC

    I don’t understand how the new user experience is so bad. I’m running games with many new players, several kids even, and the rules are clean, product readily available and accessible, adventures fun...new users are having a grand time, and I’m having the most fun I’ve had with D&D in 30years...

    D&D 5E Curse of Strahd...tarokka deck necessary?

    How often are cards pulled from the Tarokka Deck? Is it frequently throughout the campaign or more of a one encounter deal?

    Roll20 RPG Usage Stats: Growth Everywhere During Pandemic!

    It's like sports leagues. MLB and the NBA do well when the Yankees and Lakers are doing well. Like them or not they draw attention and but butts in seats. Fans love to cheer or jeer them. When those teams are down it has been proven to actually be shown as less healthy periods for the respective...

    Why the New D&D Board Game is a Big Deal

    Didn't the D&D Adventure System (that started with Castle Ravenloft) use an abbreviated version of 4e? Those games were/are great and the best boardgame version of D&D to date, IMO. However, I wish they had done some small box expansions. just some monsters and cards you could add to games. Or a...

    D&D 5E Forgotten Realms Alliances

    Well the PCs have just finished Cragmaw Castle so they have 4-5 NPCs In Phandalin now wanting them to join various organizations. They just hit 4th level. I ended the session there so I figure out what to do with all these invites.

    D&D 5E Forgotten Realms Alliances

    Im running Lost Mines of Phandelver...there are a lot of alliances and fraternities the PCs can join. Can they join more than one? Should the other PCs know who joined what? Are there any that feature more prominently in other adventures? What does a new group do with these?

    Upcoming Arthurian Movie The Green Knight Has An RPG

    Proper old-school vibes all around this product, but I wonder is this just a single scenario? Still, could make for a fun one-off evening.
