    Worlds of Design: When Technology Changes the Game

    In a fantasy setting, the battlefield use of magic is nicely depicted in the Wheel of Time setting by Robert Jordan. In the beginning of the series, the magic users are outside of the battlefield scene, in the sense, that they do not interfere with the direct war. Their stronghold was once...

    D&D General 2010: A Turning Point for D&D

    In the late '80s/early '90s the game were still mostly unknown here (Hungary, eastern block), with a few people actually having books. The first Hungarian RPG just came out around that time. But we were still seen as weirdos. By the end of the '90s while the nerd/geek status remained, there were...

    EN Weekly Newsletter?

    Indeed we got something last week. First I thought I have not re subscribed or something like that, so I'm not relieved, that it was not just me not getting the newsletter. Thank You Morrus!

    TSR Jim Ward: SSI, Dungeons & Dragons and the Computer Industry

    Two thing I lowed about those games: turn based combat and full party customization. Later games dropped one or both of those unfortunately. I used the same party throughout the Pool series, by the end they had back-stories and featured in some of the adventures I DMed as NPCs.

    How Expensive is Too Expensive?

    Monte Cook became too expensive for me. The main problem is that if I'm honest with myself, I know I will not play the game (lack of time / people to play with), so I buy RPG for my own reading pleasure. And for that, these props laden product are just not worth it.

    Pathfinder 2E Pathfinder 2E Errata

    Different industries work differently. In certain cars some component break/have problems more often than others. You cannot bring it back as their wear is normal, but just more often than in other cars. In scientific publications one cannot really issue an errata, albeit papers usually have...

    Pathfinder 2E Pathfinder 2E Errata

    It is probably true for any kind of published stuff. No matter how many times you go through a 600 odd page manuscript, something will be left is, or put there during editing, or someone just insert the wrong figure/chart/etc. Of course in a perfect world such thing never happen.

    Pathfinder 2E Low-level Wizards in PF2 - are they still underpowered?

    my 2cents on the wizard/sorcerer damage at 1st level: (1) Comparison across editions Indeed a 1st level wizard is not going to kick ass. But this was always so, or I would say more so than previously. In AD&D (aka 2nd ed) wizard had 1 spell per day. Yes, one spell. Like a 1d4 magic missile. They...

    Pathfinder 2E Low-level Wizards in PF2 - are they still underpowered?

    I always viewed wizards as an utility class and not as primary damage dealers. Cantrips are there so that wizards could still feel wizardry and do not resort to crossbow/darts. But think about spells like Ant haul, Air bubble, Create water, Feather fall, illusion spells, Mending, Longstrider...

    D&D 4E The D&D 4E - Star Trek TOS Connection

    Considering that tieflings are humans corrupted by outsiders, the resemblance is not that surprising.

    D&D 4E 4E FRCS Cover: NOOOOOOOOOO!

    Thank for pointing out that piece of art. The only cover that I like. Bring back the fond memories of 2nd ed art. They are evocative. The DMG is kinda OK, MM should feature a bit more monster. The FR cover is just BAD. I have nothing against Drizzd (but I would prefer Elminster), but the lack...
