    If it's "crunch" that you want, where do you want it and why?

    I think this is mostly where I want my crunch. I want weapon choices to make a significant difference, and sometimes to make a huge difference - i.e. X weapon is especially good against Y armor. Similarly, I want armor choices to make a difference. I want a meaty amount detail in that part of a...

    Is GenCon still worth it?

    I've attended many times, mostly since it's been in Indianapolis, including in 2019 and 2021. There was no GenCon in 2020. It is VERY VERY VERY VERY LARGE. GenCon 2021 was smaller, either due to lowered interest because of COVID concerns or admission restrictions because of COVID concerns, or...

    Making Religion Matter in Fantasy RPGs

    Oh, absolutely - that's why I included the notion of "spiritual traditions" as well as religion (which is arguably a square to spiritual traditions' rectangle). Figure out what kind of spiritual beliefs, practices, complexity and size of organization, pervasiveness of traditions, offshoots, etc...

    A SNW trailer can't be too far off, can it? When have we been getting our first trailers for new shows and seasons in this P+ era?

    Making Religion Matter in Fantasy RPGs

    I can think of two approaches to making religion matter in a fantasy rpg, assuming the game or setting has gods who are worshipped and who bestow divine powers on certain people: 1. The GM includes (to some degree) scenes, challenges, plotlines etc. that involve religion or spiritual...

    Maybe this is a form of antitheism, not atheism?

    D&D 5E A Compilation of all the Race Changes in Monsters of the Multiverse

    Yeah, I really dislike racial features that make you pretty darn good at...this one thing that actually might never come up.

    Making Religion Matter in Fantasy RPGs

    So, what is the difference between a god and a very powerful extraplanar being, if there is one? I wonder if some different terminology is needed.

    D&D 5E Removing INT, replacing it with?

    This mostly works for me. I'd be tempted to replace INT with more skills, but of course skills are linked to ability scores, so... Thing is, you could do this with most of - if not all - abilities.

    Making Religion Matter in Fantasy RPGs

    I think you could work this into the Encounter Elements and Exploration Challenges in Level Up's Trials & Treasures book. Put a will or motive or impulse behind the CON save needed in Frigid Water, or how likely a Landslide is to occur, how difficult it is to predict, what needs to be done to...

    RPG Sales of 2022

    Looking through completed D&D 5E-compatible Kickstarters, I followed a link and I discovered that Dread Unicorn Games' The Gods Have Spoken is crazy on sale. 28 new deities among 3 pantheons, with related subclasses. The quality seems at least okay, but the pdf is marked down from $15 to $5, the...

    D&D 5E A Compilation of all the Race Changes in Monsters of the Multiverse

    "doomed to continued incoherence" is my new favorite phrase! Yeah - anything you can remove form each race description is going to save a lot of space when you've got 30 some-odd races. Floating ASIs and movement of 30'- that's two lines of text right there that every single race doesn't need...

    Making Religion Matter in Fantasy RPGs

    This bugs me a lot, too. I think you mean Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, but yes: worst.

    Making Religion Matter in Fantasy RPGs

    I feel the same way, although i accept that how much of that a player wants to get into is, of course, up to them. But I would like to see more of it, and when I play clerics I definitely work on fleshing out what my characters daily religious/spiritual practices are, whether they feel the need...

    D&D 5E A Compilation of all the Race Changes in Monsters of the Multiverse

    "Trance When you now finish a long rest, this trait allows you to gain two proficiencies that you don't have. Each must be in a weapon or tool of your choice that is in the PHB. These proficiencies last until you take a long rest." Is it weird that this excludes skills?
