    Playtest (A5E) Level Up Playtest Document #10: Adept

    Indeed. Monk is kind of like the Ranger - it's really a variant Fighter with Rogue and Cleric motifs (Ranger is a variant Fighter with Rogue and Druid motifs). Isn't there more similarity between a Kung Fu Master, a Jedi Master, and a Samurai like Miyamoto Musashi? Why aren't these all "special"...

    This is why Martial Artist doesn't work great (it's also a two-word Adjectnouner, the only thing worse for a full class name in my book would be a Nounverber).

    How about Lodestar, to borrow from En5ider?

    How about Martial Artist? Contemplative? Pugilist? Boxer? Martialist? Ascetic? Cenobite? Artiste? Jedi?

    Playtest (A5E) Level Up Playtest Document #10: Adept

    Adept is nice as a name for those who played the English-language versions of <i>Golden Sun</i>. For veteran D&D players, however, the name instead evokes the NPC caster class from earlier editions…

    WotC WotC Gets A New Logo?

    It'll take some getting used to, but it's fine. I'm sure there was a reason to leave behind "The More You Know"-type classic logo. If it helps spread D&D, M:tG, etc to more players, what does it matter to us who already will buy anyway what we think of it? The point is to catch new audiences...

    D&D 5E [Updated with cover!] The D&D Book Is.... Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft!

    I KNEW it would be "Van Richten's Guide to XXX." I'm just surprised it's formatted like a Campaign Setting (Setting details, Monsters, Class Options & Ancestry Options) rather than Monsters + Ancestry Options. I wonder if we're still in for another Monsters+Ancestries sometime soon?

    Is The One Ring 2E Kickstarter going to break the records?

    Just backed at the 201 USD level (144+ Screen and stretch goal rulebook addons), for that sweet sweet collector's edition book. Beautiful. I love this and am so glad to help push the stretch goals further and show our early love and backing of this edition. I missed out on 1e TOR, but got...

    What do space empires fight over?

    Specialty elements/compounds that are extremely rare and very hard/expensive to manufacture. Bringing peace and order and justice to remote, crime-ridden worlds. When the aliens attack randomly, and then the alliance strikes back, and then a thousand year war enacts that nobody quite...

    Star Wars The mandalorian [Spoilers]

    /Deleted because I want us to move on. And yes, this. My spouse and I were just saying this last night. Or maybe Xena can be a similar but different Ranger of the New Republic.

    D&D General Adam Bradford, Lauren Urban, Todd Kenrick Leave D&D Beyond

    Sounds like an opportunity for Wall Street Bets, yah?

    D&D General Adam Bradford, Lauren Urban, Todd Kenrick Leave D&D Beyond

    Just the other week Lauren Urban downplayed Todd Kenrick's comment that the new UA would get into DDB soon. I imagine she did so out of concern that things wouldn't move so quickly at least in the short term when all three of them were leaving (and so quickly after James did).

    D&D General Adam Bradford, Lauren Urban, Todd Kenrick Leave D&D Beyond

    Fandom has always been very corporate and a difficult company, as wiki users know. I wouldn't be surprised if it just got too much, or if WotC is creating in-house integration. D&D Beyond has been one of my fav channels for years just to watch these three chat about the new content. I'll miss...

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Gothic Lineages & New Race/Culture Distinction

    If you hate that so much, why not set +2/+1 restrictions for each ancestry option AT YOUR TABLE? All this does is state openly what tables have been doing for years, and shows WotC is putting their mouths where our money is. The majority of players wanted the decoupling, so we got it. But it's...

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Gothic Lineages & New Race/Culture Distinction

    Well, I'm guessing we're getting "Van Richten's Guide to Monsters" or some such as a Player's Options + Monsters book this October. We're overdue for a Monsters book, for sure. And monstrous ancestries and spooky subclasses would fit in well.
