    What are you reading in 2022?

    I have started reading The Complete Compleat Enchanter by L Sprague de Camp and Fletcher Pratt. It's a nice hardcover with slipcover version I picked up on my latest Half Price Books trip. And for gaming books, I just got my copy of the Lords of Chaos RPG via DriveThruRPG from a Kickstarter...

    D&D 5E Does Your DM Let Everyone Start With A Feat?

    I DM almost exclusively so it's a question of what do I include. In my games I almost never use/allow feats so it's moot. The few games I have used them I only allow them at first level if it's already written that way, i.e. Variant humans

    What are you reading in 2022?

    I picked up quite a few of Akers books from that series not that long ago from half price books. It's on my reading list. As for my current reading, I just completed a reread of Designers & Dragons the 90s. It's my third time reading the series now and I love revisiting the history of the RPG...

    D&D 5E Which common monsters/creature types do you exclude from your campaigns?

    I've never used and likely never will use the Tarasque in a game. A lot of monsters and PC races I use or don't use vary with the campaign I'm planning. I generally don't allow Drow, Tiefling, or Dragonborn in a lot of my games because I don't like the assumed flavor they imply. I like my...

    D&D 5E Are you buying less 5e Material?

    Tasha's and Ravenloft killed my interest in WOTCs D&D 5e output. I am buying/kick-starting quite a bit of 5e material from 3pp. Especially Kobold Press, Goodman Games, and Nord Games. It's made up the difference if not more so.

    TSR Am I The Only One Buying Up the DMs Guild Reprints?

    Definitely not! I've been picking them up at a heavy pace myself including various modules, the Gazetteer series for Mystara, and various campaign settings.

    What are you reading in 2022?

    I'm a big fan of Warpstar and it's fantasy sibling Warlock. Glad to see some love for it here.

    D&D 5E Monster Manual Expanded II Second Edition News and Updates

    I agree regarding WOTC's decision s with monster changes. They already removed far too many spell casting capabilities from monsters compared to previous editions. I'm glad I have my POD copies of the Monster Manual Expanded books even if I do plan on repurchasing the new versions to support...

    Games with "terrible" follow-up editions

    I feel that same sentiment can be applied to the entire GURPS line. When it came to setting/history/research purposes their books are phenomenal. I regularly use my GURPS books as reference material for just about any RPG I run even though I rarely use them for GURPS games at this point.

    Games with "terrible" follow-up editions

    Same. I still have a large library of 3e books and pick up more when I find interesting ones used. Never made the jump to 4e as I wasn't really playing much GURPS around the time they transitioned.

    Games with "terrible" follow-up editions

    This was in third edition. Funnily enough I saw several of those 3e GURPS WOD books last time I visited my local used bookstore.
