    Fan Creation (5E) D&D/Moorcock Multiverse Inspiration PBP [CLOSED] - OOC discussion

    Hey guys with the holidays coming up and an increased work schedule until next week, I've had to come to the realization I won't have time to participate in this game at the moment. Sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused but I'm going to have to pull out for now.

    Which is the better fantasy rpg and why: D&D 5e or Pathfinder 2e?

    I do find your statement about laziness and what Paizo would never do rather ironic since Paizo for all intents and purposes reprinted 3.5 with minor changes as Pathfinder...

    Fan Creation (5E) D&D/Moorcock Multiverse Inspiration PBP [CLOSED] - OOC discussion

    Hey @JharyOConnah was thinking of going Shadar-Kai and possibly monk... Way of the Shadow or if you would allow it Gloomstalker Ranger (I'd actually prefer this but I know you mentioned sticking to core). Let me know if either or both of these would be ok. Going for an Assassin (possibly...

    Pathfinder 2e: Actual Play Experience

    To be fair it seems that he's trying to suss out how you would run this in PF2e officially via the rules... I don't think he's asking what your way or anyone else's way would be. But I could be wrong.

    Compelling and Differentiated Gameplay For Spellcasters and Martial Classes

    Well that's because none of that counts... they have to be heroic in the specific way that a specific poster wants them to be otherwise they're not heroic... o_O

    Is Pathfinder 2 Paizo's 4E?

    Another way of stating this is that they paid attention to what people wanted their play experience to be like...

    Is Pathfinder 2 Paizo's 4E?

    You act as if being popular and providing what one thinks the best play experience would be are mutually exclusive... they aren't.

    Is Pathfinder 2 Paizo's 4E?

    Ok I thought I was the only one who was thinking this, especially when it comes to ancestries. It takes multiple levels and choices to basically get everything that's handed to you at level 1 in D&D 5e. And to be fair I guess there are a small number of variant options but overall it left me...

    Is Pathfinder 2 Paizo's 4E?

    I'm not sure what this has to do with my point...I was arguing against the assertion that there are only 3 flavors in any one class in 5e. Do you believe that to be the case?

    Is Pathfinder 2 Paizo's 4E?

    Again, as I stated before... it's not about how you feel... it's about you making false statements. And it's no angst for me I was just trying to educate you in case you honestly thought there were only 3 flavors of every class in 5e...

    Is Pathfinder 2 Paizo's 4E?

    Yep more ways the "3 flavors" can be expanded. Apparently @Remus Lupin has a group that all play the exact same 3 characters in every class with the same 3 subclasses, the same backgrounds, the same skill selections, the same weapon/spell choices, the same race, the same... well you get the...

    Is Pathfinder 2 Paizo's 4E?

    Doesn't change facts.

    Is Pathfinder 2 Paizo's 4E?

    And your statement is provably wrong,

    Is Pathfinder 2 Paizo's 4E?

    Hey no one can argue with how you feel about the options in 5e... the issue is when you start making definite statements like the "3 flavors" comment and it's demonstrably false. thief, assassin, swashbuckler, mastermind, spellthief, etc are all different archetypes that play differently and...

    Experiencing the fiction in RPG play

    Some have pre-determined paths, encounters and even ...pre-determined outcomes in a broad sense... but if I choose to run say...Hoard of the Dragon Queen (By most people's accounts a linear module)... I'm not playing D&D wrong... irregardless of your personal opinion on what constitutes "real"...

    Experiencing the fiction in RPG play

    Other than it not aligning with your particular playstyle what exactly makes it objectively bad gm'ing?? Edit: If I and my group decide to run/play a specific module or adventure are we doing it wrong as well?

    Is Pathfinder 2 Paizo's 4E?

    Yeah I'm a little confused by what market exactly is fragmented?? I would argue 5e has already done what you are claiming PF2 is trying to do and has, by all accounts, succeeded beyond all expectations...

    What is the essence of D&D

    Funnily enough I kept all my 4e Essentials books and it is actually the only version of 4e I'd run now. Don't tend to discuss it much though since fans of classic 4e tend to dislike at the least (and more often than not hate) that era of 4e. It's funny I sometimes wonder if more of them had...

    What is the essence of D&D

    I can only speak for myself when it comes to this, but it wasn't presentation that decided this for my group it was the sheer amount of time combats (as suggested by the encounter guidelines) took at low level and continued to increase as we went up in level. Our games, through no fault of our...
