    WotC New WotC Statement on Orion Black

    Do not go on Twitter unless you want the dumbest hot takes from all corners. I'm used to the bigots (that Morrus rightfully shows the door), but there is also some ridiculous performance outage out there. I'm socially liberal, but some of ideas floated are not helpful or substantive. Don't tell...

    UA New Unearthed Arcana: Psionics!

    We are getting into the concept of 4e "power sources" here. Psoinics is a source akin to arcane or divine. By comparison in 3e, it was a separate book appropriate for settings that used psionics. Psionics being an arcane tradition is every bit as jarring as making druid or cleric an arcane...

    Dread Isn't for Everyone

    I ran a modified Dread game over the weekend, where I added a layer of dice rolling. Failed checks resulted in pulls, and number of pulls increased with the number of prior failed checks. This simple addition if ability scores created a mechanical differentiation among the characters and worked...

    Sketch #1: Polearm Shop

    A morningstar in a polearm shop? Surely you are pulling my leg, sir.

    Feast of Legends is a Tabletop RPG Produced By... Wendy's!

    Here's how I'm houseruling the missing info. Weapons and Order of the Beef skills apply strength to attack rolls unless specified otherwise. Order of the Chicken and Order of the Sides skills apply arcana to attack rolls unless specified otherwise. Graceful type weapons and the Order of the...

    Feast of Legends is a Tabletop RPG Produced By... Wendy's!

    Ok, I'm trying to prep this to run tomorrow and there's some holes. The Strength and Grace stats alude to modifying attacks, but the attack rule doesn't mention modifiers. Arcana is for caster attacks perhaps, but it is unclear what is or isn't a spell. The Graceful weapon property has no...

    PF2E Are you moving from 5E to PF2?

    I am currently in a 5e game and will be adding a pf2 game. The two systems specifically appeal to the two sets of players in terms of complexity, mechanics choices, and combat structure. I expect 5e to continue be my main system, as I gravitate towards less rules heavy systems.

    WotC Frylock's Gaming & Geekery Challenges WotC's Copyright Claims

    True. WotC isn't guns blazing on this. But I'm assuming based on Frylock's actions that his intent in all this is to make WotC take him to court.

    WotC Frylock's Gaming & Geekery Challenges WotC's Copyright Claims

    The idea that stat blocks for established creatures are self-evident doesn't hold up. If I gave Frylock and a WotC staffer identical narrative information on a previously un-stated creature in the public domain, they would not generate 100% identical stat blocks. There would be real notable...

    Despicable Me's Minions are now officially 5e

    Raise your outrage flags on high, friends! If you thought a Magic: The Gathering setting was the end of the world, prepare to be Feebleminded by the presence of a Minions stat block in Dragon+ issue 21. That's right, the babbling yellow blob-humanoids from "Despicable Me", "Despicable Me 2"...

    5E Who is Matthew Colville?

    I'm out of the loop, it seems. My feed is blowing up that legendary D&D designer Matt Colville has a D&D Kickstarter. I'm not really into the D&D streamers. Would I know him outside of that?

    UA Spores, Brutes, and Inventors: Unearthed Arcana Brings You Three New Subclasses

    The exact opposite might be true. I'm wondering if they are leaning away from artificer as a stand-alone class and leaning towards an archetype instead. I like this archetype a lot. There is plenty of room for more "entry level player" options in the game, and absolutely no reason to limit...

    2E Is 5e Basically Becoming Pathfinder 2e?

    5e is moving at exactly the right pace. The glut of books seen in previous editions, and particularly in PF, just isn't here. Released in 2014, 5e has the pacing down perfectly. -Core books: They have the core 3 rulebooks, which remain the entry point to the game. -Modules: They release...

    O.L.D. Shipping Schedule

    It looks like most of the O.L.D. hardcover copies shipped April 9th have arrived. It is shipping in waves, or should I start worrying if I'm in the U.S. and haven't gotten mine yet?:confused: (Edit: rolled a 1 to name correct book)
