    D&D Movie/TV D&D Movie: Action Packed, Funny as Hell

    Sure. That time. But it could have gone any way. Chance is the biggest factor in determining a movie's success.

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Movie: Action Packed, Funny as Hell

    To be fair, the novel is a pretty difficult piece of work. It swings wildly between a children's adventure story and adult literature, the vast majority of characters are underdeveloped (Lobelia Sackville-Baggins is the only female character), the climax takes place whilst the protagonist is...

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Movie: Action Packed, Funny as Hell

    I don't know how Jackson persuaded the studio to part with so much dosh, it has to be either a natural 20 on persuade, or blackmail. I would say bollocks to that. It's great, but "best" is a wild assertion. And great literature does not necessarily make a great movie. Different media are...

    D&D 5E Preview Witchlight's New Rabbit People

    "Not keyed off" is not the same as "more useful for". You only need a combined dash and disengage if your character is an archer, striker or caster. All of whom are likely to want DEX. Lucky Footwork gives more value in conjunction with Evasion. And in order to get evasion you need to be a monk...

    D&D 5E Preview Witchlight's New Rabbit People

    Point is, you can choose if you want to give your bunny +2 DEX or not, but you get more mileage out of the inherent abilities if you do. Likewise the fairies don't have to boost DEX and INT/CHA, but they get more from their inherent abilities if they do.

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Movie: Action Packed, Funny as Hell

    The time was right, but a good film is a good film, and a bad film is a bad film, and you don't know until you roll the dice. It could just as easily been the D&D movie that was good and Fellowship that sucked (lots of people expected it to).

    D&D 5E The D&D Multiverse Part 2- The Remix Culture of the Gygaxian Multiverse

    The "why" doesn't really matter much. All these shows where influenced by, but more importantly, influenced, the zeitgeist. Even though D&D wasn't limited in what it could do by TV budgets it still had to speak the language of the culture which had been defined by those TV shows. So you can...

    D&D 5E The D&D Multiverse Part 2- The Remix Culture of the Gygaxian Multiverse

    It was part of the original concept of Doctor Who (1963-), which is why it was based around a machine that could go anywhere in time and space.

    D&D 5E Preview Witchlight's New Rabbit People

    I would call it 40. Chronicles of Narnia came out in the 1950s, and where an influence on the way people played D&D from the off, even if Gygax wasn't a fan.

    D&D 5E Preview Witchlight's New Rabbit People

    It's still better for characters who want to disengage from melee. And Lucky footwork works well with Evasion. So it still favours dex based rogues and archers, even though there is no +2 DEX.

    "You fight like a cow!" ?

    D&D 5E What should this magic item's rarity be?

    Really, no. Take Boots of the Winterlands (uncommon), which are flat better than a Ring of Cold Resistance (rare). Rarer items are often more powerful, but there is no direct correlation.

    D&D 5E Beware the Jabberwock! D&D Beyond has a sneak preview of the "The Wild Beyond the Witchlight" monster!

    Pathfinder inherited the Jabberwock stats from Dungeonland/Land Beyond the Magic Mirror (updated to 3rd edition rules). That was a higher level adventure (by 1st edition standards). CR 13 fits with a a level 8 party, which is the cap for Witchlight.

    Map of the New Forest

    Unless the island is newly emerged due to volcanic activity even islands have wildlife. Humans aren't the only organisms on the planet.

    Meh, we dig up flint arrowheads in our garden.

    D&D General Sets, Scenes, Settings from the Movie

    I actually think it's a tea truck. Although you would have trouble getting a very large truck up the roads to Alnwick Castle.

    Everywhere has over 1000+ years of history.

    Map of the New Forest

    I think Billy Shakespeare preferred the Forest of Arden. NB, for them what don't know, Billy the B*std meant "new royal hunting ground - peasants keep out" when he founded the place.
