    The Troubleshooters: 60's Cartoon Themed RPG

    Well apparently my input is being minimalized by the site owner who feels the need to push back on my post after directly quoting me, and I offered a genuine explanation to his comment/question. Then said siteowner felt the need to make a smartass comment about my explanation for no reason...

    The Troubleshooters: 60's Cartoon Themed RPG

    No need to be a smartass. I thought this was a discussion thread? I understand that Americans may not be marketed to. I'm offering it as a suggestion as I stated in my initial post if they are interested because most of us who remember 60s comics in the USA probably have no idea WTF Franco...

    The Troubleshooters: 60's Cartoon Themed RPG

    Just some background info about it as the game would likely market better to Americans of a certain age- The Man from Uncle though better than most tends to be thrown in with the mass of sub-par 60s James Bond/Spy knockoffs on TV.

    The Troubleshooters: 60's Cartoon Themed RPG

    It is by far the most well known and popular 60s action cartoon in the USA and ran in primetime slots, which made it a BFD here. Cartoons did not run in primetime slots on a friday or saturday night in the USA. I thinkn. perhaps the Flinstones was the only other one.

    Poll: What TSR RPG Should Be Revivified by Wizards?

    I completely lost interest in the new Alternity by Sasquatch when they stated it would not use the Dice system from the original. That was the best bit! I never bothered to look at it after that.

    Soliciting tips for a solo Dungeon World game

    Google + used to be fantastic and the best place to go. Very active. Of course it's now dead. I was hopeful for a transition, but MEWE has been dead too. I'm not familiar with what @Aldarc posted above. I know that on the very few occasions I have been linked to something on Reddit, it was...

    General ‪What does the word “dire”‬ mean to you?

    I'm from the South. No Rednecks use the word Lavender. It's properly known as "That light purple pinky looking thang"

    General ‪What does the word “dire”‬ mean to you?

    In D&D it means silly naming conventions that someone thought would sound Edgy & Kewl Otherwise it means "Bad" Dire Straits= We are in deep :poop: That show was "Dire"= That show was :poop: American- Ancestry pre-US Colonial English and Pre 20th Century Italian Immigrant. Born South of...

    5E 16 More Details About Theros

    My understanding is you can buy the crunch separately on D&D Beyond? At least that is what I was told when I inquired about the new Wildemount book as the setting doesn't seem to be anything I would be interested in , but some of the new magic crunch did.

    1E Fireball throughout the ages

    If you mean the Longbow- That's because it was employed en masse and was the medieval equivalent of artillery and resulting shrapnel. Having been a competitive archer (and hunter), both modern, and with traditional archery gear (longbows, recurve) I can assure you that as a single archer your...

    OSR OSR and compatibility?

    Mostly very easy. There are certain OSR games that really stray, or utilize a different system than the OD&D baseline. But I'd say the vast majority adhere closely to OD&D, Moldvay Cook Marsh Basic and Expert sets, or Swords & Wizardry White Box. Some utilize AD&D/OSRIC. It will still be...

    1E Dragon Reflections #31

    Middle Earth is dfinitely unsuitable for D&D as written. I often wonder why people question Gygax so much on this. It does not fit Tolkien's world at all. Can you modify either to do so? Sure. But either as written? Complete clash. His Elves are not Tolkien Elves in the least, and hobbits were...

    5E Have you actually read the 5e DMG?

    The Basic Rules are free. That said, if everyone is having fun, that is all that matters. I'll ignore half the rules in every game if it gets in the way of the fun.

    Poll: What TSR RPG Should Be Revivified by Wizards?

    I grew up Hunting & Fishing and had butchered plenty of game. So "severed heads" don't really bug me. But that dream did :cry:
