    D&D 5E What do you want out of crafting rules?

    I think if a PC is making checks, it should be more, can they successfully get fire crystal used to infuse the Wand of Fireballs that they're making, not a check to actually make the Wand of Fireballs. Acquisition of the ingredients and formulae is the adventuring part, not the actual forging or...

    D&D 5E What do you want out of crafting rules?

    I always go through stages of reading everything this man says like it's holy writ or getting overloaded by his ... flowery prose and just can't. That said, this looks promising. I like the general assumptions and goals of this system.

    D&D 5E What do you want out of crafting rules?

    So, an in game example. The party I'm DMing for just finished Dragon Heist, and they have decided to keep the bar they acquire as a base of operations. So, upgrading their bar has been an actual desire of the group, and I do have PCs interested in crafting. The Dwarven Paladin is a smith, he...

    D&D General How Was Your Last Session?

    So tonight's session might have been the most hilarious session I've ever run. We ended the previous week on a cliffhanger, and one of the players wasn't available tonight. So, rather than press on, we did a flashback. Now, ever since the beginning of the campaign, when I was running Dragon...

    Zack Snyder's Justice League - Official Trailer

    I don't really have a dog in the fight over Superman. Haven't read his comics, the most Superman content I consumed was watching Lois and Clark as a kid. I have no memory of Superman Returns, I fell asleep watching it. Man of Steel was just as uninspiring, it was such a dour and joyless movie.

    Finally: Babylon 5 REMASTERED and Available for Streaming

    I quite liked Earth: Final Conflict, but it was uneven at best. Couldn't get past the Sorbo-ness of Andromeda, it's quite tolerable when he's not on screen. But back to Babylon 5, one of my all-time favourite genre series. This show, together with Buffy and Star Trek, are kinda my holy Trinity...

    D&D 5E New D&D Hardcover To Be Announced On The 23rd (Tomorrow)?

    Fair enough. I've played through Curse of Strahd, but I have never read a Ravenloft book. I assume older editions had setting books? I don't recall one for 3rd or 4e.

    D&D 5E What if healing spells only created Temp HP?

    I'm of two minds here. 5e, maybe (maybe) went too far with discouraging pre-combat buffing, given Concentration and shorter spell durations. Precasting heals might shift that back a bit. OTOH, I think it's too narrow to only grant temp hp. I've considered "Shielding Ward" as an additional spell...

    D&D 5E New D&D Hardcover To Be Announced On The 23rd (Tomorrow)?

    Innistrad sourcebook? There are two upcoming Innistrad MTG sets.

    WotC Strixhaven sounds like it'd be a nice mini-setting for D&D

    You can probably use the Aven rules from Amonkhet right now for Owl Folks, they might end up being Aven anyway.

    Zack Snyder's Justice League - Official Trailer

    Well, at least once this comes out I won't have to hear about it anymore. Whedon is a trash person, but I prefered his writing to Snyder's. I thought Justice League might have been the best of Man of Steel and BvS.

    Best Threequel

    Hmmm, As a kid, I much preferred the battles and adventure energy of ROTJ to ESB. Even now, I think it gets underrated due to the Ewok factor. So, still a solid entry. Star Trek Beyond is my legit favourite of the Kelvin era Treks. 2009 was all origin story, and Into Darkness is just bad and...

    So, Wandavision?

    I'm thinking if Mephisto was going to be a factor, they'd have already been introduced. Now that Agatha is in play, I'm pretty sure she's the heavy of the piece. At best, there might be a off-hand reference, but I don't think we'll see Mephisto.

    So, Wandavision?

    So, is Pietro Ralph? The mockumentary style really worked with all the 4th wall breaks.

    Mortal Kombat (2021) trailer

    This looks fun.
