    D&D General I hate pdfs, and I'm happy that WOTC primarily publishes Books

    When it comes down to it, if there's only one option available I can always print out what I need from a PDF without worry. But I do love my physical DCC collection.

    City adventures in very low-magic fantasy

    Check out the DCC Lankhmar adventures. Gang wars, heists, theatre plays, there's some good stuff to be found in there.

    D&D General Railroads, Illusionism, and Participationism

    I'm not even old and it just makes me kind of befuddled. If they're gonna arbitrarily end combat when you like, why make players roll all those dice in the first place? Just... narrate the battle being won?

    D&D General Thaco the angry clown... really?

    Is it a major issue? Seems more like 3-4 people complaining about it in an internet forum.

    5.5E 4e design in 5.5e ?

    It's not a bother, it's just a different mindset. One that is more interested in seeing what the dice give you, and making the best out of those results. And as a player, not having to worry about builds is pretty nice instead I can focus on "building" my character through the items, knowledge...

    5.5E 4e design in 5.5e ?

    Yep. The point of the funnel is not only to pick up the pieces that remain and have them be Level 1's, but to have fun watching unlucky peasants get destroyed in all sorts of ways!

    In Defence of Chickens [IC]

    Talia Eastmoor, Noble She examines the door, squinting at it. "Looks heavy. Perhaps we should wait until the rest have finished doing whatever it is they're occupying themselves with before checking this strange tower's insides..." She leans against the wall, and then spots Vasha and Ranken...

    In Defence of Chickens [IC]

    Talia and Koby They follow the tracks to the tower and stand before the door, seeing that others are already examining the well. "Fleetfoot" Mac, Squire He stops as he hears the voices, looking all around. "What in the...? Alice, perhaps you should step away from the well!" Mac is hesitant to...

    In Defence of Chickens [IC]

    Talia Eastmoor, Noble She taps the wet stones with her sword, and then shakes her head. "Not worth the head injury, I'm afraid." She walks up to Koby, wondering what the orphan's getting up to and heeding his call, and looks at the tracks as well. "Strange. Where do they lead to...?" With a...

    D&D General List the 3 Coolest Parts of Your Homebrew World

    1) The Rainbow Archipelago are the remains of the Florida Peninsula in the future after it was destroyed by the God of Natural Calamities following a ritual-gone-wrong. 2) Travel is locked down by a ring of storms that surrounds the islands, causing rainbows to be seen in the distance at most...

    In Defence of Chickens [IC]

    Talia Eastmoor, Noble Talia whirls around looking back at the gate, and nearly trips when turning at the sound of the bell! It looks a bit silly in the moment, so she hopes no one's looking and composes herself by standing up straight and clearing her throat, "Our 'hosts' seem to be well aware...

    In Defence of Chickens [IC]

    Talia Eastmoor, Noble She stops at the odd noises, looking up as well. "You may be right, Halfling... Keep looking, and we'll search inside" With that being said, she steps foot into the inside ground of the keep, looking up at the walls. With a wave of her hand, she commands the squire to...

    D&D 5E Crashed flying cities/fortresses (maps/modules)

    Not for 5e (though it'd be as easy as just grabbing stats from the MM and applying them), but Broodmother Skyfortress has a neat little setting to perhaps use as a crashed flying fortress. It flies in the scenario, but you could totally re-tool it to be downed and crashed, with the enemies on it...

    Can you name a good fantasy TTRPG that's not D&D?

    Dungeon Crawl Classics for crazy, gonzo fun and awesome tables. Coolest Warrior and Wizard classes imo. Mausritter for playing as cute mice that face dangerous, often larger foes. Fun inventory system, too. Knave and Maze Rats for rules-light, more cool tables, and an interesting spell system...

    In Defence of Chickens [IC]

    Talia, Mac, and Koby They make it up to the structure, looking around anxiously before deciding to walk through the open gates. Alice She hangs back to enter with the rear, fingers drumming against her leg while looking back at the corpses they left behind.

    D&D 5E Which played-out D&D trope needs to die?

    1st things 1st, your sister has good taste! 2nd, Battles against blood cultists, giant antmen that bloodily invade weddings, and delving beneath the earth and finding the lost city of brass! Those are the ones I've played, at least. I find it a lot more engaging to just. Do stuff that would...
