    D&D 5E Monte Cook's Ptolus Kickstarter Has Launched

    I tend to back everything Monte Cook Games kickstarts. I‘ve yet to be disappointed :). Phenomenal writing, art, production quality, imagination. And typically on time, which is astounding for most kickstarters :) Backed at the 5e print level.

    D&D General Your favorite PC?

    In 5e? A moon Druid wild elf named Wren Pin-Awen. Shared character with my daughter, which allows for shared memories. Any edition? 2e were tiger Druid. Over the top and a blast to play.

    Spelljammer Is Spelljammer Coming To D&D 5E?

    As an Aerospace Engineer and someone who has played all versions of D&D since 1979, I can say that Spelljammer is by far the most intriguing setting I have ever played. I very much hope this happens :). The geek in me is crying tears of anticipatory joy :)

    Dreams of Aerie: Bruce Heard's Circus in the Sky!

    Backed every Calidar book so far. Truly amazing writing and wonderful resources. Definitely will back this one as well :)

    D&D 5E Movies that make you want to play D&D

    This may not be everyone's cup-o-tea, but: Just watched Maleficent with my daughter. I seriously get the Druid vibe from the movie. Makes me want to play a Druid in a campaign :)

    Psion class home brew

    I actually like where you are going with it. One quick question: I do not see an Alter Self-like ability for the metabolist. Seems to be a good moderately low level ability for them. I have tried a few playtest sessions (just two of us, so not a lot of group action unfortunately). I like the...

    [UPDATED AGAIN!] CURSE OF STRAHD Will Be Available March 15th

    Loved Ravenloft (#3 after Spelljammer and Forgotten Realms) :) Just pre-ordered on Amazon. Yay!

    Bruce Heard's next Calidar Book

    Bruce Heard's next Calidar book is live on Kickstarter :) Considering the quality of the first book (of which I was a backer), it is good to see him continue this series.

    When A Game Store Goes Above And Beyond

    A prime example of my own foolishness... I should have investigated the company / individual before backing the Kickstarter for the Traveller DVD. I will excuse myself as my love of Traveller clouded my cognitive abilities :) Nah. I was just gullibly foolish :) At lease these companies are...

    Your Move? Kickstarter and the Evolution of Game Crowdfunding

    Though I have learned my lesson the hard way with Kickstarter (several still-open backed game projects approaching 3 years old...), my insatiable hunger for gaming related products still prompt me to visit the site regularly... Foolishly, perhaps. I have backed several projects I am immensely...

    [5e] Binder Class

    Remarkable detail. A cursory review does not show any obvious game breaking issues. By contrast, a few vestiges may be a tad underpowered. However, I really, really like the feel of this. I plan to playtest this soon. Our group plays a standard campaign every two weeks and plays one-offs in...

    D&D 5E Converting Psionics to 5e?

    My personal desire is to see psionic rules that are not just one more kind of magic. That seems so... ordinary... to me :) As if fantastic magic can be ordinary. One of the primary reasons I would like to see Wizards actually step up and develop psionic rules is that we might get something...

    D&D 5E What does 5E NEED

    Not to beat a dead horse... And my apologies to horses everywhere... But I really need comprehensive psionic rules. Something within the current rule-set framework of D&D5E, but something "different" from magic (just an example: minor psionics follow similar rules as cantrips. Devotions cost...

    ELEMENTAL EVIL Player's Companion - FREE!

    Love the content. Love the art. Also (in my humble uneducated opinion) logical to exclude new cleric spells (wouldn't this be a non-issue if they would simply implement a "spells known" number or a spell list by deity / focus??). Absolutely love the spells, especially the return of many old...

    D&D 5E Products You Would Like to See WotC Publish For 5E

    I would really like to see a play tested (different from magic) Psionic rule set (classes, sub classes, setting info, monsters, etc.), which is essential for the campaign I am designing.

    Which of these would you like to see in 2015 from WotC?

    I voted a book of new rules. I like some of the fan-made psionic rules I have seen, but I would really like to see a comprehensive psionic rules book for 5e from Wizards. Somebody go kidnap Steve Winter. I'm sure he could give us 2e feel with 5e rules :)

    D&D 5E 5E has brought this old gmaer back to D&D after 8 years!

    Old School :) Welcome! I started in 79 (yep, I'm officially an ANCIENT :) and started Dm'ing in 81. I have played / DM'd every version of d&d (loving each one for their own strengths), but especially loved 2e. Played this version till the pages were falling out of the books :) I also played...

    Traveller5 RPG Core Rules

    2 out of 5 rating for Traveller5 RPG Core Rules I have played Traveller since the early 80's. I have enjoyed and actively played all versions that have existed (especially liking the tech-crunch happiness of TNE). I was extremely excited to find out that the "ultimate version" of Traveller...

    D&D 5E With the Holy Trinity out, let's take stock of 5E

    I've played since 1978 (yep, I'm old) and DM'd since 79 (yep, really, really old). This is the first edition of the game in decades that has absolutely captured my imagination. My few concerns (no spell list by school, no notes in the list for concentration or ritual, the "non-offensive" art...
