    D&D General Turgenev's Friday Freebie Maps

    Tim, as you know, my son, Oliver, loves your maps. He remembered last night that you wouldn't have a map on Monday, but then he said, "Let's check anyway." He was so excited to see a new map posted. In an unusual moment of empathy, he exclaimed, "He must be feeling better!" (And then he saw the...

    GMs: With What Do You Tinker?

    I suppose I tinker with all three, but my primary system is GURPS which is such a toolbox that RAW provides a very broad palette. I rarely fully invent new rules from scratch. I commonly customize lists for particular settings. Most adventures are either original or customized significantly.

    Your preferred name for playable part human part giants (non D&D)

    Based on this, I would go with Giantkin. It's simple and descriptive. In a similar vein (heh), you could go with giant-blooded, but that feels more cumbersome.

    Non-binary population percentage?

    Thanks for all of your comments. I recognize that it's an absurd question, really. As a bit of background context, I've been experimenting with creating ancestry data files for GURPS Character Sheet, a free utility that my players and I use to manage our characters. The developer has...

    Non-binary population percentage?

    If you were creating a random PC generator and wanted to include non-binary as a third gender option, what statistical weight would you give it? One in three? (Even odds of being male, female, or non-binary?) Or some reduced amount? In the US there are about 1.2 million people who identify as...

    Out-of-character/metagame knowledge

    I like this write-up. Gave me a lot to think about. This last bit made me think about how my play decisions in most RPGs are informed by information on multiple levels. I definitely think about my character and what they would do in any given situation. This may be informed to different degrees...

    Your thoughts on monsters having six Abilities

    I’m not an expert on all of the available D&D books, but other RPGs have certainly managed it. In GURPS, for example, strength and hit points can be arbitrarily high. Other attributes rarely need to go much beyond the standard scale. It doesn’t resolve all questions for exotic builds, but it...

    Your thoughts on monsters having six Abilities

    You beat me to it. This has been my experience too. Plus, it’s helpful to be able to compare capabilities to some extent.

    What's your attitude towards PVP?

    When I think "PVP" I usually think of PCs duking it out, trying to kill each other. I've never seen that go well, though I'll admit that it's been a few decades since it has even come up in my adult games. I see it frequently with younger players (I run RPG activities for middle-schoolers), and...
