    Representation in Freeport and How Far We've Come

    This has minor spoilers (mostly descriptions) for an adventure so old it'd be entering college this year. So after wrapping up our delightful 4e Zeitgeist campaign at Level 30, we were all in for something more down to earth and slightly different. I'm running the recently-released Shadow of...

    ZEITGEIST That's a wrap! Finished our Zeitgeist 4e campaign last night!

    Okay! I got some feedback from my players. Most prominent in the negatives? Everyone hated Naval Combat, honestly myself included. The system was overly complex, and not sufficiently enjoyable. It never felt anything other than tacked-on. We tried both the pared down versions and the full...

    ZEITGEIST That's a wrap! Finished our Zeitgeist 4e campaign last night!

    Something like 3-1/2 years, give or take, with mostly weekly sessions of 3-1/2 hours each. Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk

    ZEITGEIST That's a wrap! Finished our Zeitgeist 4e campaign last night!

    We did - at least the parts that made sense - although I had to rush it a teeny bit. I am kicking myself for not doing more with all the resurrected Eladrin women now, though I guess most woke up in Crysillyir or Elfaivar so that's probably not as big an oversight as I expected. Morgan, the...

    ZEITGEIST That's a wrap! Finished our Zeitgeist 4e campaign last night!

    It's like finishing up a great book series - bittersweet. I don't know if any of us were ready to say goodbye to the Zeitgeist campaign, but after finishing Adventure 13 last night, we brought it to a close. I'm planning a sequel campaign in the future, but I want to let the sheer greatness of...

    Getting close to the end... Thank you folks.

    We are on the final legs of Zeitgeist (4e) and man oh man, am I going to miss this adventure path. You folks did such an amazing job, top to bottom, that it will be really hard to top this whole experience. It is far beyond anything that I could have put together on my own, but believe me, I...

    4E 4e DM Cheat Sheet

    As soon as I expand it to include something beyond the Epic Tier levels I calculated out, I'll update a version I made with the 1st Level Damage Forever damage calcs, if anyone would find that helpful. :)

    4E Core 4E vs. Essentials

    Got it. And I think that's a danger, depending on how integrated they are into the world. My last 2 4e games - lasting 6-7 years or so - have used the Dark Sun themes, and the Zeitgeist themes. And both are well-integrated into the setting lore, and really serve to flesh out the characters. So...

    4E Core 4E vs. Essentials

    Yeah, the Thief took a few kind of iffy turns (Yakuza theme, Master Infiltrator PP, but then Thief of Legend Epic Destiny, which is just bonkers and awesome; the L30 capstone is crazy). Between the Thief, the Hexblade, and the Barbarian, the Warlord has been kept very happy all campaign. I do...

    4E Core 4E vs. Essentials

    This is throughout the entire 1-30 Zeitgeist campaign (currently at level 30, Adventure 13; Hexblade and Thief are party members. Others are Warden, Fighter, Warlord, Barbarian, Artificer) and a 1-19 Dark Sun campaign. Before that one, e-Classes weren't a 'thing' yet. Note that this is a...

    4E Core 4E vs. Essentials

    I'm wondering if you're confusing Themes and Backgrounds, because it sounds like you're talking about Backgrounds, here. I dunno, man - I still haven't seen balance issues while mixing and matching all kinds of classes*. As I mentioned upthread, I don't make a distinction in my own games. Each...

    Any way to remove users from my block list?

    I believe I have people there, but I also believe in letting bygones be bygones, so I would like to remove any, if so. I can only see options to add people, however, when I click Edit Block List.

    4E Core 4E vs. Essentials

    Huh. I genuinely think Themes are one of the best improvements in mid/late 4e development, and I'd keep them before I kept feats.

    4E Core 4E vs. Essentials

    The difference, of course, is that a million to the D&D division is way different than a million to MtG or Transformers. :) (None of which matters because it's a number I pulled out of thin air anyway, so...) Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

    4E Core 4E vs. Essentials

    On all of this - no. I am in the 'corporate world' now, and the idea that anyone - Mearls included - is somehow so diabolical that he could both design it to fail, not blink at throwing away potentially millions of dollars on a project he manages out of spite, and then cackle over a pile of...
