    D&D 5E Tell me why your favorite MtG setting would be great in D&D [+]

    As I said, I'm not too up on the lore details, but basic idea is the original timeline had extinct dragons, with 5 rival clans. A planeswalker traveled in team to ensure the dragons survived, which led to them defeating the khans, and in the present day Tarkir is ruled by 5 elder dragons

    D&D 5E Tell me why your favorite MtG setting would be great in D&D [+]

    Not sure if I'd call Tarkir my favorite since it came out while I had lapsed being involved with magic, but I'd be really interested to see them do something with it. First, Tarkir is inspired by cultures that tend to be less represented among fantasy settings. Second, the canonical...

    One D&D Playtest Packet #1 Speculation

    I think changes to crits except for player only change, other changes to crits that I think might be not be accepted are inspiration on crit and weapon-only, but expect them to go through. Changes to backgrounds will probably stick around. Feats in background will stay, though we I expect to see...

    D&D General Gen Con, Daisy, Sleeping in the Lobby and All That

    I missed it, but heard from some discussion that seemed to suggest she initially minimized the situation before the victims had a chance to come forward (which was what prompted some to go public when they initially wanted to let GenCon deal with the report before making public statements if at...

    Payn;s Ponderings@ Battletech General Discussions

    I've mostly been exposed to BattleTech via Mechwarrior 2 and the new Battletech video games, but have liked the idea of the setting and been interested in getting into different aspects. I saw there's a BattleTech bundle right now on Bundle of Holding. What do people think of the books being...

    D&D General "The perfect edition for ___ is this!" [+]

    I'll preface this with I've only played 3.5-5e except for some exposure of 2e via Baldur's gate so most of my answers reflect that period unless I have a strong impression of earlier editions For quick play and ease of learning and picking up, the best edition is 5e - has some quirks, but...

    Recommendations for an FLGS in Boulder, CO?

    I've been away from Boulder for a bit, but my memory of game stores seemed to be the ones actually in Boulder were more just new stuff. But I'd agree with innerdude's recommendation for Black and Read as a place that's between Boulder and Denver.

    D&D Celebrity Satine Phoenix & Husband Jamison Stone Accused Of Abuse Towards Freelancers

    FWIW she has now corrected this and said it looks like a twitter bug and Phoenix is still following her - but no follow up to "address the specific posts". And I have seen at least one of the people affected say he's not interested in having any direct contact which I wouldn't be surprised if...
