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

    One of the best characters I've ever played was a Kender fighter named Phistletain Windwhistler (or Phist for short) who aspired to become a Knight of Solamnia. He tried (many times unsuccessfully) to follow the Code and the Measure to the best of his ability. At times, I would (for comic...

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

    My main DLance campaign takes place between the end of the War of the Lance and the beginning of the Summer of Chaos (it's one I've run several times). A few years ago I ran a heavily altered version of the War of the Lance (yes, it involved time travel) as an introduction to my main campaign...

    In Dragons of Summer Flame, Raistlin clarified that the story was just a legend. There was no truth to it.

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

    Actually, he mentioned that he wasn't interested in sex...it distracted from his pursuit of Magic. He saw Lauranna's beauty because she did not age to his eyes...he admired her beauty, not lust. Crysania he didn't lust after...he manipulated her in his quest to tie her to him so that he could...

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

    I understand that some of the DLance novels are a bit outdated, but they have worked on changing the perception of some of the racial biases in the world. There are a group of Kender called the Afflicted; they have lost much of the kleptomaniacal and carefree ways of the rest of their race...

    5E Which Virtual Table Top are you using right now and what do you like best about it?

    I have been curious about Foundry. How difficult is it to add content? FG is as simple as copy-pasta, so I'm wondering if Foundry is as easy.

    5E Which Virtual Table Top are you using right now and what do you like best about it?

    Once again I will mention that this is a particular failing that is, unfortunately, quite common.

    Ah, I see you two have met. Common failing, I've learned...

    5E A brief rant about Rime of the Frost Maiden, farming, logistics, and ecology

    I haven't read through the entire thread yet, but I really like your reasoning. One thought I had (and this is a pretty grim thought) is that the lottery that some of the towns are having to appease Auril could serve another purpose...food. I know, the thought of cannibalism is pretty...

    5E Which Virtual Table Top are you using right now and what do you like best about it?

    Roll20 is great for some games...it fits Shadowrun really well, for example. Works well with the WoD games, too. FG is perfectly fine for my needs, and I personally enjoy the automation and ease it allows me to setup encounters, campaigns, and stories. I also recognize that it isn't everyone's...

    5E Which Virtual Table Top are you using right now and what do you like best about it?

    That's a common problem, I'm afraid. There is a tendency to take things out of context and blow things way out of proportion

    Do you prefer your character to be connected or unconnected to the adventure hook?

    Part of that is also clearly setting the expectations for the campaign...which is part of the DM's job. DM's should also know what their players want to play. Some players want to just play a nice dungeon crawl and don't want to worry too much about things like backgrounds or trying to tie their...

    Do you prefer your character to be connected or unconnected to the adventure hook?

    Isn't it part of the DM's job to keep the players engaged/invested??

    Do you prefer your character to be connected or unconnected to the adventure hook?

    I think a lot of it has to do with how much effort a DM puts into incorporating the background into the campaign. For example: In a previous campaign, the DM wanted to run Primeval Thule...a very low magic campaign. Most of the players weren't really inclined toward no magic, but I remember...

    Mana, Shamans, and the Cultural Misappropriation behind Fantasy Terms

    Yep...we can take out all of the negative stereotypes from the game. The lore is there in D&D as a way to give motivation for the monsters' actions. It is there simply as a guideline. That's the thing about lore...if you don't like it, don't use it. There is no rule in the PhB or DMG that says...
