    D&D 3E/3.5 (3.5) official tokens

    I know the 3.0 starter box came with tokens; I still use them actively. There were also a number of issues of Dungeon that came with tokens; looking at them, I think they were for 3.0 as well, since some of the monsters aren't square (even in the last set that I have, the ankheg is 5 feet by 10...

    D&D 4E 4E is too balanced - options to replace all martial dailies?

    Hey all, I'm actually a 3.x player, but your Groove Points idea sounds really, really similar to Iron Heroes' notion of tokens, so if you're looking for kind of a sample implementation of Groove Points (albeit a 3.x derivative), you might take a look at that. Particularly, IH had multiple...

    D&D 3E/3.5 3.5 Expediting Combat?

    In my experience, slowdown comes primarily from piles of iterative attacks and high-level spellcaster havoc. My group tends to be pretty prepared, though, so it's just a question of rolling everything. Iterative attack fixes: Trailblazer's was interesting. It only allowed two iterative...

    Warlocks and Metamagic: A Better Way

    The issue of Warlocks using metamagic on Eldritch Blast came up in my group recently, and we thought about looking into the WotC clarifications on it... and then decided to manage it much more simply. Basically, it works like this: You may apply one or more metamagic feats that you know to an...

    PCs as dungeon inhabitants-seeking sourcebook

    I know I've seen a sourcebook somewhere with rules for PCs as, rather than dungeon-raiders, dungeon inhabitants. Does anyone know what I am talking about, or, better yet, the name of said book and/or its publisher?
