    PF2E Will Pathfinder 2nd Edition Be Based on D&D 5E?

    It's good to have competition, it's also good that it's not massively litigious 'ohmygerd they stole our idea to use d12 as barbarian hit points!! SUE SUE SUE!' As long as no one decides to make their system use a proprietary d23 or something we as customers should benefit.

    PF2E Will Pathfinder 2nd Edition Be Based on D&D 5E?

    It's not just RPGs, almost every tabletop wargame in the past few years has tried to spin itself as 'streamlined'. It's a trend in marketing language as much as anything. After all no one would buy something that was described as 'clunky and fiddley'

    FATE - need some clarification on basic concepts

    I'm really digging the FATE system - the dice and the 4dF distribution ticks my number geek boxes, the aspects and descriptors are great for storytelling fuel as well as the fate points enabling story progression as well as being a resource. If it helps I'm looking at Spirit of the Century with...

    GSL 4E

    So I'm trying to write up some adventures into a more 'other people' friendly format, with the first few specifically aimed and new DMs. My concern is that under the OGL you can't give page numbers or provide stat blocks for anything that exists (as well as reference/use the special monsters...

    4E Is anyone running Murder in Baldur's Gate with 4E? (and other 4E adventure design issues)

    I know this is thread necromancy but we're nearly finished the arc, and had I known I think I'd have made a harper agent rather than my bizzare kobold paladin. It's still quite fun and we rock at the combat, we just need to stretch our RP muscle for the detective-y parts!

    Nova Praxis

    Anyone have any experience of this? I've got the PWYW version and am currently reading the fluff which is interesting // similar to Deus Ex in feel. Are there any preliminary info people can give me - game type (action, investigative, character driven?) ideal number of players (GM + 3/4/5) and...

    RP-ing and Evil Cleric (Faerun)

    I'm trying to get my head around how I'd roleplay an evil cleric. This is more of a hypothetical as I usually DM but it's something which has niggled at me for a while. Aside from Bane who has military/law/organisational aspects and Azmodeus who is similar (though less overt) I can see very...

    4E So all these wacky arguments are still about 4e, right?

    But EN world is a sensible part of the internet with mostly sensible people. I'm sure I'll give 5E a look but am not sure if I'm going to switch as my group didn't like the playests

    4E So all these wacky arguments are still about 4e, right?

    Frankly, scrap next, support AD&D/2E, 3.5 and 4E. Everyone whinging want it to either be 2E or the next version of 3E if it's not perfect they won't change over so whats the point?

    4E Forked: "Math and Grind" or "Why Rechan is Right" (From: "4e One-trick ponies")

    I did an encounter where there were several shadowy ghost assasin things and 2 controlling clerics. Basically the 8 ghosts had 160hp between them/ 20 hp each. so for every full 20 hp taken one died. Harder to calculate with blasts and such so you have to think on the fly, but so long as you use...

    4E Is anyone running Murder in Baldur's Gate with 4E? (and other 4E adventure design issues)

    We're playing it. Main issues are times between rests, so we won't count as extended rest until the GM says so, which is fine. We're also not going for any one particular group (guild, watch or fist) at the moment as we're not sure who we trust. In addition it all just seems a bit random and...

    Is there a game like...

    Is there a game like D&D (ie high fantasy, magic, etc but with options to change this things a little) that is more 'zoomed out'. In the way that things like vampire the masquerade is more story based and while you can focus on the minutia (and indeed at many times do) you can also focus on the...

    4E Equivalence of 4E Points of Light and Forgotten Realms gods

    The main issue is that FR have nearly 1 god per porfolio , whereas the core gods have multiple portfolios that overlap. The important thing is to identify the main 'aspect' so while Shar has darkness (a main identifier) she also has knowlege/secrets and undeath to an extent, so she'd be a good...
