    General [Dragonlance/Faerun] Anyone here met any Cataclysm/Wall of the Faithless defenders?

    I haven't actually commented on the Wall of the Faithless, since I don't know anything about it outside of Neverwinter Nights 2, where the concept seemed breathtakingly unfair. Note that say what you want about the Cataclysm and the gods' hissy fit on Krynn - they never stopped anyone from...

    General [Dragonlance/Faerun] Anyone here met any Cataclysm/Wall of the Faithless defenders?

    Eh? I was saying it seemed bonkers for Fizban to say the Cataclysm was to help the world prepare for Takhisis' coming. Why would Paladine think killing civilization would help prepare people to fight Takhisis? Unless you mean that it was Takhisis plan, which the other gods unknowingly helped...

    General [Dragonlance/Faerun] Anyone here met any Cataclysm/Wall of the Faithless defenders?

    I don't recall reading that, and I hope not, cos it's bonkers.

    General [Dragonlance/Faerun] Anyone here met any Cataclysm/Wall of the Faithless defenders?

    Actually the original Hickman conception is more Mormon than what it eventually became (cf Great Apostasy) and all. After the Kingpriest Trilogy and other material set in the era it appears the Istarian church was pretty righteous until the very end. Really only Kurnos and Beldinas were...

    General [Dragonlance/Faerun] Anyone here met any Cataclysm/Wall of the Faithless defenders?

    Yeah I think people are misreading it. The Cataclysm was the plan of the evil and neutral gods because they felt Paladine's group weren't reining in their followers. Paladine was the last to acquisece to the plan, in fact he seems way too lenient with the shenanigans going on, continually giving...

    General [Dragonlance/Faerun] Anyone here met any Cataclysm/Wall of the Faithless defenders?

    Yeah but the Kingpriest was actually a good person - you can read the Kingpriest Trilogy, it makes it pretty clear. And the gods tried to communicate with him many, many, many times, visions etc. Paladine even sends his avatar. I mean, honestly, if you have a setting with the conceit that the...

    General [Dragonlance/Faerun] Anyone here met any Cataclysm/Wall of the Faithless defenders?

    That's not quite correct about the Cataclysm. There was corruption in Istar, but the Kingpriest (Beldinas Pilofiro) was corrupt, he was fanatical. Kurnos was definitely corrupt, but he had nothing to do with the Cataclysm, apart from being the catalyst for Beldinas to take the throne. I don't...

    General [Dragonlance/Faerun] Anyone here met any Cataclysm/Wall of the Faithless defenders?

    I don't think the two are the same thing. The Wall of the Faithless is punishment for those who refuse to take a divine patron. The Cataclysm is a punishment from the gods to the overmighty faithful. (The Kingpriest Trilogy adds further nuance to the Cataclysm as well as raising Fistandantilus'...

    5E SKT - Yakfolk Village makes no sense.

    The domain in question, Vorostokov (I think) is most likely not even 30 years old. Most Ravenloft domains have "false history", where the long past that the inhabitants think they remember never actually happened. (Darkon takes this up to the max - the domain literally rewrites its inhabitants...

    General On the subject of Hobgoblins

    In my campaign, orcs, goblins, hobgoblins, goblins, bugbears, etc, are all actually one people - "Orschans", and descended from a mutated form of humans/elves/gnomes. (Hence the propensity to inter-breed). Orcs are effectively the nomadic, tribal Orschans, Hobgoblins the elite, settled, ruling...

    5E Kender a hafling subrace

    Where on earth do people get the idea that kender are incapable of learning about property? It's cultural guys, and nothing in the setting has ever said otherwise.

    General Dragonlance's Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman Are Suing WotC for Breach of Contract

    Oh, I agree, but others don't seem to. It'd be a shame for Dragonlance to go like Ravenloft and have its identity shrunk down to a 1st edition module conversion.

    General Dragonlance's Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman Are Suing WotC for Breach of Contract

    There was the original modules, THEN the compilation, THEN the 2nd edition coversion, THEN the 3rd edition conversion. I mean, seriously guys, how many times do we need to convert and release these modules?

    General Dragonlance's Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman Are Suing WotC for Breach of Contract

    Well good thing that the kender are neither. The former is an oversimplification of their cultural tendencies, the latter is certainly false considering the mere arrival of Malys gave a whole nation of kender collective ptsd.

    General Dragonlance's Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman Are Suing WotC for Breach of Contract

    Regarding gully dwarves, there's some subtle clues within the lore that they aren't actually as dumb as they seem. To start with they seem to be fantastic and inventive chefs which hardly seems the pursuit of a totally moronic people. Their inability to use plural would seem to be more a...
