    Who remembers this Gem ( Dragonstrike VHS )

    It amuses me that the uploader has carefully preserved the "this videocassette is protected by the Macrovision anticopy process" notice at the beginning of the video. I'll see your Macrovision anticopy process and raise you the Internet and three decades of streaming media development!

    TSR TSR3.5 Launches IndieGogo Campaign to "Stop" WotC

    Plus, a copyright lawyer based in Washington state has a completely different set of skills and knowledge to a copyright lawyer based in Indonesia. Intellectual property laws vary significantly from one jurisprudence to another.

    D&D General 33 years ago the first Forgotten Realms D&D comic was published.

    But... but... Bananaman is a superhero! He's the man of peel!

    A Minor Rant

    I'll freely admit that my American history is pretty patchy, and although I watched The Squire of Gothos relatively recently, I didn't associate that with Hamilton at all. That said, I didn't really mind the spoiler. Chances are that I'll have forgotten it long before I ever get a chance to see...

    A Minor Rant

    I have to admit that I was not expecting this thread to end up spoiling a theater production I haven't yet seen!

    TSR D&D Historian Ben Riggs on TSR's Salaries in the 1990s

    That wouldn't explain the lack of a mention on the bottom of humble minion's box. My boxed clearly says "Three full-colour poster maps: One is a close-up of the Tyr Region, printed on cloth to make it especially authentic-looking."

    Solifugids and Pedipalps--False Spiders

    I'm pretty sure they haven't been converted to 5e yet, at least not in any official source.

    D&D General Monster ENCyclopedia: Flail Snail

    Good catch, thanks! I've fixed that paragraph. The 2nd Edition Monstrous Compendium entries all seem to be just numbers, without any other notation, so the flail snail's "3" isn't unusual.

    Here's a PDF version of the flail snail article, for those collecting the PDFs.

    D&D General Monster ENCyclopedia: Myconid

    The myconids have regrown. This thread is a replacement for the original thread, as the post order got slightly scrambled during the last forum software update. This version has all the missing images replaced with freshly scanned versions, a bunch of new myconid references added and, of course...

    D&D General Monster ENCyclopedia: Myconid

    This is a series of articles about specific monsters from D&D’s history. Each entry takes a look at the origin of one D&D creature, and tracks its appearances and evolution across different editions. We have now reached the half-way point of an alphabetical tour through the hypothetical Utterly...

    D&D 5E WizKids Yawning Portal new set

    Assuming you are referring to Mordenkainen Presents Monsters of the Universe, which is one of the three books in January's Rules Expansion Gift Set, your above statement is misinformation. It was announced during the same event that the Gift Set was announced that Mordenkainen Presents would...

    Foundation Series (Apple+)

    It was implied in a line of Seldon's dialogue from last week's episode, when he says to Gaal "you're supposed to lead the first Foundation".

    D&D 5E 5E Survivor - 5th Edition Is Best Edition! [+]

    Didn't we just get a 5e adventure (Witchlight) that can be played through without combat? Doesn't that represent an evolution not just for 5e, but for D&D as a whole? Offhand, I can't think of any adventures from earlier editions for which it was feasible to play through without combat.

    2nd Edition AD&D Collector's Guide

    That's listed in the Fast-Play rules section of the Miscellaneous Collector's Guide under the title printed on the cover: Fast-Play Game: Diablo II Edition. It was released in the weird period between 2nd Edition and 3rd Edition when WotC made several things that didn't really fit into a...

    WotC WotC reported 50% growth over 2020!

    I don't think those are mutually exclusive. WotC has been incredibly savvy for the last ten years and a big part of that savvy has been exploiting a lot of luck they've had during that same period of time. It is equally possible to fail to capitalise on good luck through lack of savvy (see also...

    D&D General Monster ENCyclopedia: Ixitxachitl

    Steve Marsh was kind enough to reply to an email I sent him with several questions about the ixitxachitl, and confirmed that he did create them (along with all of the other water encounter monsters in Blackmoor). I've updated this article in several places to include his comments and observations.

    Great catch! I missed that entirely, but have now added it to the article. Thanks.
