    Worlds of Design: How Long Should Your Rulebook Be?

    I'd love to make a complex rule game myself, if I only had all the time and money in the world. Shame I'm quite surely short on both though. By the way, my ideal game would resemble a GURPS 4E Basic Set with DX and IQ separated into 2 equal halves respectively then having the whole bare text of...

    Tasha's Cauldron of Everything: An In-Depth Review

    Oooh, I missed that. By the way, is that mark a long established canon description of Igg..er, Tasha's visage? Thanks for the missed information, I knew it was him on first sight (though if feels quite weird to have the older archmage D&D character get his "Gandalfy" looks seized by his...

    Tasha's Cauldron of Everything: An In-Depth Review

    Art comment only: The bald guy looks like the last iteration of Mordenkainen I heard of; who might be the lady playing chess with him...?

    WotC Gale Force 9 Sues WotC [Updated]

    As a Korean, I can testify the TRPG Club company mentioned up there is quite notorious for their "amateur" attitudes on practically every aspect, including translation, editing, customer service and franchise continuity (as in only importing new systems' core rulebooks only and ignoring...

    Level Up (A5E) End the 5 minute work-day by making all classes work off short rests.

    That's almost exactly what I've been itching for to happen once and for all. Good to know that others thought about it too...

    Level Up (A5E) End the 5 minute work-day by making all classes work off short rests.

    Instead of embracing the old "fire now and rest to recharge later" paradigm, I'd rather support a "charge up superpowered deeds by taking time while either soaking/avoiding imminent harm or be protected from it" paradigm.

    Level Up (A5E) Do Player Characters Have Average Population Stat Distributions?

    I'd treat all STR 20 as equal STR 20's for all creatures with Medium size, regardless of species. That number is just an expression of the total mass and quality of whatever muscle/item/whatnot's fueling the individual's brute strength, at least to me. And for the main topic, I'd say Yes, as...

    Level Up (A5E) 3.99 Edition

    First, all skills having definite DCs per task specifics. Like "you need this amount of Climbing bonus to successfully climb a wall made of material X with friction coefficient Y," for example. Secondly, stuff like monsters following the same Feat/HD ratio, specific creature types sharing the...

    Level Up (A5E) 3.99 Edition

    When 5E was finalized I wished the bolded parts were kept/returned, but only the latter ones did. Too bad for me, and nowdays I've turned more skeptical in that if even a 1/3 of players actually like the former bolded 2 like I do...

    Level Up (A5E) What is the vision of the high level fighter?

    Personally I'd temporarily mix the old Fighter and Rogue class, and let them be the ultimate "best at what anyone else can theoretically do class". A class with d12 HD, proficiency with all armor and weaponry, 4+ skills and tools with Expertise, Str/Con saves gradually expanding to other saves...

    Level Up (A5E) [+] What features should a "Advanced 5E" have?

    0) Fully OGL/SRD compatible rules (the full version I fully trust to have gorgeous art and aesthetics). 1) Actual + practical ability(skill) check DC examples per ability(skill). And material HP/AC/Save information to complement interaction with non-creatures to boot. 2) Keep the Timeless Body...

    D&D 5E Icewind Dale Minis Coming From Wizkids

    That new dragon reeks of awesome.

    Voice Acting in Your Tabletop RPGs: How Much/Little?

    As least as possible. My nature is kilometers more of a gamer, way less an actor... :(

    D&D 5E What official 5E content do you want to see more of?

    While I answered player options and rules, my true answer would be the SRD's expansion.

    D&D 5E What are you looking for in Psionics (mechanic structure)

    No Verbal, Somatic, and (at least cheap) Material conponents, ever. Making up thematically functional replacements, like Thought, Emotion, glowing veins or weird buzzes from ionized air shenanigans are very acceptable. At least have telekinesis, telepathy, teleportation, and clairsentience...
