    5E Would this gonzo style fit 5e?

    I need your opinions! My Kickstarter campaign ends Tuesday morning. I'm considering running another one for a 5e version, but don't know if this gonzo style would be of interest to 5e players. If you have the time, would you take a look and tell me if you think a 5e version would fly?

    5E What sword & sorcery books & supplements are out there for 5e?

    Sword & sorcery is a subgenre of fantasy typified by Conan, Elric, Fafhrd & the Gray Mouser, etc. With the exception of Primeval Thule and the World of Xoth, I'm unaware of any 5e-derived sword & sorcery products. Are there any more? Specifically, S&S game books that include the rules, rather...

    2E How did/do you make your THAC0 attacks rolls?

    What method did/do you use to make your combat rolls? In other words, did you adjust your THAC0 by the opponent's AC (as in the rules), or did you subtract your d20 roll from your THAC0 and tell the DM what AC you've hit? Or something else?

    What are the most compelling reasons to switch from PF 1 to PF 2?

    While I own PF2 and have read half of it, I have not yet played it. My gaming group has played it 3 times (I wasn't able to attend any of them). With that in mind, I'm feeling somewhat underwhelmed by the game. I do see some some improvements, especially in the way advancement feats are...

    Do you like the use of iconic characters in the Pathfinder 1e and 2e artwork?

    Pathfinder 2e has continued the use of the iconic characters from 1e, using the exact same characters. Do you like the use of iconic characters?

    Pathfinder 2e: is the binding of the special edition better than the standard edition?

    I'm not impressed with the binding on the standard edition core rulebook. The covers feel like they will eventually tear away. Does anyone know if the deluxe edition is hardier?

    4E Where was 4e headed before it was canned?

    I have vague recollections that WOTC had announced a Nentir Vale book and a "new" PHB that had errata-ed versions of the 4 core classes and the Warlord. Does anyone remember that? Were there other indicators as to where WOTC wanted 4e to go before deciding D&D needed a new edition?

    I'm moving closer to launching my new Kickstarter campaign, a monster & region guide called "Gazetteer of the Grotesque." It's for OSR and 5e games. Here are some pics of card & map proofs.

    2E thief abilities: should they have been NWPs?

    In 2e, do you like that thief abilities are essentially restricted to thieves only, or do you think they should have been NWPs, with thieves automatically gaining and improving them (as the ranger gains & improves tracking)?

    2E [2e AD&D] what optional stuff did/do you use?

    There was a ton of stuff for 2e by way of options. You had a ton of "complete" handbooks, the Player's Option series, etc. When you played or still play AD&D 2e, what optional rules did you use from the official TSR products? Poll is multiple choice.

    Pre-3e mechanics vs d20 system mechanics

    What are your thoughts on unified mechanics versus varied mechanics? For example, pre-3rd edition D&D had a mix of methods for determining dice results: roll over, roll under, d20 for combat & saves, d100 for thief skills, d6 or d10 for surprise, etc... while 3rd edition and onward all use the...

    The AD&D ability score generation method that never was

    Just for fun, I calculated how ability score generation could occur just using the minimum/maximum scores by race as given in the 2e AD&D PHB. Crazy stuff! If you notice any errors, let me know. Would you enjoy this type of ability generation method? Feel free to create some characters and...

    What third-party books do the most interesting stuff with the 5e engine?

    There's a ton of third-party 5e based stuff out there. Of the ones you have read, which do the most interesting things with the 5e engine? For example, the way that Adventures in Middle Earth uses backgrounds more as themes than as prior careers ("World Weary," "Hunted By the Shadow," etc.)...

    5E The dragon everyone hates

    Here's a creation I would value feedback on. This is Lunkhead, the result of an alchemist's misguided attempt to fuse the embryos of a red dragon and a green dragon. He spends his days issuing foul language at anything that crosses his path.
