    5E Spell Level Cap Below 9th

    I've been considering running a game where I cap the maximum spell level at 5th level. I'd be using the spell-point variant, and I'd be keeping the available spell points at each level and the cost for spells of each level the same as listed in the DMG. The primary change I'd be instituting is...

    General Job Board (Random Table)

    After watching this episode of How to be a Great Game Master, I was inspired to write up a random job board table. I figured I'd share it with you and see if you had any notes on how to improve it.

    TSR TSR's Amazing Accounting Department

    As an accountant, Just-In-Time (JIT) is popular and can result in reduced storage costs. However, it sounds like this guy missed one of the big rules of directing a company's accounting policy: you need to become intimately familiar with the nature and the workings of the business (and how it...

    5E Stargate RPG Announced from Wyvern Gaming

    I've used the Buffy the Vampire Slayer RPG to run Stargate games with great success. Zats are pretty horribly inconsistent in the show. I can't recall a single instance of someone resisting one. And, the whole thing about stun/kill/disintegrate in 1/2/3 shots brings up a host of issues as...

    4E Should I play 4e?

    4e is my favorite edition of D&D (followed by 5e then AD&D 2e). So, naturally, I'd recommend it. I do agree with other posters that people should try most editions of D&D. I've played BECMI, AD&D 2e, 3e, 4e and 5e; each one has their own quirks and foibles that contribute to creating a...

    5E What proportion of the population are adventurers?

    It really depends on the kind of world you want to create, and the nature of that world. People will attempt dangerous things for wealth. I see adventurers much like people heading west as part of the gold rush. There might be a great many of them in a given region, especially of the classes...

    5E The Final Announcement from The Descent Live Stream: Eberron Hardcover

    Thank you. I kind of needed that today.

    5E The Final Announcement from The Descent Live Stream: Eberron Hardcover

    I don't need my Mearls-in-a-box to have a gun. I have enough of my own. Besides, I spend far too much time contemplating using them on myself anyway.

    5E The Final Announcement from The Descent Live Stream: Eberron Hardcover

    That's probably for the best. Based on their history, psionics will probably be a watered down version of magic. Which is a shame. AD&D 2e had a great (albeit a little complicated) psionics system that had a unique feel to it, whereas 3e's psionic system let you do a psionic fireball, but it...

    5E The Final Announcement from The Descent Live Stream: Eberron Hardcover

    Eberron wouldn't have been my first choice. My first choice would've been either Planescape or Spelljammer (or a new hybrid of the two). Technically, my first choice would've been Ravenloft, but I doubt they're going back to that after CoS. However, with Ravenloft presumably off the table...

    Recovering Unused Held Spells

    While running my usual weekly game last week, one of my players asked about holding an action to cast a spell. I told him the rules, and he inquired if he could recover the cast spell if it wasn't used. I told him about the way the rules handle it (the spell is spent regardless of using it)...
