    I like 5E as a system, but I have mixed feelings about the type of books WotC publish for the system. I would love it if WotC published more of the following type of books: Setting books: We have a few that could qualify, but I would love to see more of these. Monster books: I enjoyed Volo's...

    Dave Arneson Game Day 2018 - Coming soon!

    Dave Arneson Game Day first appeared sometime after Dave Arneson passed away in 2009. While others were more involved in its creation, it has been co-opted by the people over at the Comeback Inn and other places where fans of Blackmoor and Dave Arneson gather. Although it less ambitious than...

    Which D&D worlds have Sci Fi Space Ships?

    I recently learned that Pathfinder's Golarion has a crashed space ship, as an homage to Expedition of Barrier Peak, which in turn probably was inspired by the City of the Gods from Dave Arneson's Blackmoor Campaign. In addition to those there is Mystara (linked to Blackmoor) and also the...

    What WotC hasnt done yet: Old Settings

    One of the reasons I got into 3E/D20: Dragonlance, Ravenloft, Dark Sun, Blackmoor and Greyhawk were all supported. Even classic favorites like Mystara and the Hollow World got several articles in the Paizo magazines. While WotC has been rehashing alot of old concepts, they have stayed away...

    Living Campaigns

    I guess Living Greyhawk is the most famous one. 4E has Living Forgotten Realms. Dave Arneson's Blackmoor had the MMRPG (modules still available). Which other settings has/had Living Campaigns? -Havard

    Eladrin, why?

    I like the idea of a teleporting race, but why do they have to look and feel almost exactly like elves? Other than the game mechanical features this race seems really unnecessary. What have I missed? -Havard

    Any love for the Scarred Lands?

    Does anyone out there still play Scarred Lands? There is a bit of a fan revival of the setting over here, but I was wondering if there are other fans of the setting out there. It really was a setting that seemed to disappear over night? Simply another result of White Wolf's retirement from the...
