    Roll20 & DTRPG Are Teaming Up

    The second sentence is the problem The customer experience got far worse. Not to make Roll20 look bad. The could also add good stuff to drivethru. Or at least keep it as good as it is. But there is always the possibility that they could make it worse like Amazon did. Time will tell. I just...

    Roll20 & DTRPG Are Teaming Up

    @Jer What you say might well be the case. But then I remember that I used to buy comics at a company called Comixology and stuff can go bad quickly. So very much wait and see on that one.

    Roll20 & DTRPG Are Teaming Up

    I don't really about VTTs. They are more work then I want to invest as GM. So roll 20 doesn't interest me at all. The only thing that is important for me is that they don't do any stupid stuff with drivethru rpg. I just want a place where I can buy PDFs that update themselves with no nonsense...

    Pathfinder Roleplaying Game for Savage Worlds Adventure Edition: Advanced Player’s Guide, A Review

    Nice to see that there is a follow up to the first kickstarter. Pathfinder and Savage Worlds is as combination interesting enough that it even gets translated in other languages. For example Ulisses Spiele the German company that does the German translation for both game lines said why not and...

    RPG Crowdfunding News – Batman, Torg Eternity, Exalted, and more

    Well if I go at the English version of the F-Shop I immediately find Orrorsh under the "New products" header. https://www.ulissesf-shop.com/new-products/ But to be fair I check the German version of the f-shop quite often given how big Ulisses in Germany and how many game lines they make or...

    RPG Crowdfunding News – Batman, Torg Eternity, Exalted, and more

    Might very well be the case. Being from Germany I also back a lot of German language Ulisses CFs. I personally don't think of them being that bad in backer communication. They are about on par with Free League the only other European RPG company I back often. They mostly only give you updates...

    RPG Crowdfunding News – Batman, Torg Eternity, Exalted, and more

    Ah Torg. Seven boxes already on my shelves and now on the way to a eight one. What a preposterous crazy ass ride of crowdfundings these where so far....:D That those Torg crowdfundings still are that successful is a testament to how hardcore the Torg fans are.

    Steamforged Games Apologizes & Reprints Dark Souls Books

    Well 5E like with d20 glut back then is so popular that you can just slap that 5E sign on almost anything and still make money. Save on writing and playtest cost because the licence was expensive. It has 5E on the cover and will sell. If Dark Souls wouldn't be such a beloved IP with a hardcore...

    Steamforged Games Apologizes & Reprints Dark Souls Books

    So instead of a game that actually works like and respects the source game they made a D&D game with Dark Souls trappings. And that was so badly done that they need to print a replacement immediately ? Anyone else getting d20 shovelware flashbacks......:ROFLMAO: I will stay away from...

    D&D 5E Doctors & Daleks - Cubicle 7 Brings Doctor Who to D&D 5E

    I hope for that as well. Not to get a retro clone of the game. But given me a game with 4E's structure an chassis but with powers that aren't miniature depended but instead use abstract or zone positioning. I would throw money at that so hard.... I miss the 4E Fighter so much. Looking back...

    D&D 5E Doctors & Daleks - Cubicle 7 Brings Doctor Who to D&D 5E

    Yep. Accessibility at least at the player side is among 5E's greatest strengths. To gather really large numbers you need a game that casual players can deal with. From a rules mechanics perspective 5E is unimpressive and has some strange quirks that you can easily solve in a potential 6E. 3E...

    D&D 5E Doctors & Daleks - Cubicle 7 Brings Doctor Who to D&D 5E

    People who come with that attitude have no place at my game table. Especially as we often do board game night as well. There you need to learn new rules as well for every game. I made clear to all my gaming pals that I am perfectly fine playing in a 5E game as player but I would refuse to GM it...

    D&D 5E Doctors & Daleks - Cubicle 7 Brings Doctor Who to D&D 5E

    Yea did buy and play lot of d20 stuff back then. The end result was that it burned me out of 3E faster then usual for a D&D Edition. And 5E is a edition that is based on feeling familiar and often republishing stuff that was already there instead of doing new and fresh stuff so tired of it...

    TTRPGS, Blockchains, and NFTs

    Imho what will kill it at the end is the massive carbon footprint and that it can overload electricity grids. It a matter of time before more countries forbid it it. If I remember correctly so far its Iran, Kosovo and China. More will follow. Especially in countries where green parties are a...

    D&D 5E Changes to D&D's Spellcasting Monsters: Streamlining Your Way To Bliss

    Correct. But as others already have mentioned that is mostly a problem of the first 4E Monster Manual. They fixed the maths here quickly. D&D has a habit of the first MM always being the weakest one mechanically as the designers still learn about and get comfortable with their own new system...

    D&D 5E Changes to D&D's Spellcasting Monsters: Streamlining Your Way To Bliss

    I can only partly agree. As player I have fun with them as well. As a DM I no longer do. One of the reasons my group has been playing a different game then D&D the last two years was that they expected me to DM it. I no longer wanted to deal with all the work 5E demands. Monsters with spells...

    D&D 5E Changes to D&D's Spellcasting Monsters: Streamlining Your Way To Bliss

    Well not exactly but things move in that direction. I kind of expected that to happen as soon as as some years went by and the edition warring was done. 4E might have been a divisive edition but it had very interesting stuff going on. Especially when it comes to game mechanics and rules...

    D&D 5E A Compilation of all the Race Changes in Monsters of the Multiverse

    That switch to PB uses of abilities is not really my cup of tea. It adds too much bookkeeping for my taste. I am more comfortable with either "per combat" abilities (you can use short rest here very well) or a pool of resources that powers all abilities. Less hassle to track. But then I never...

    D&D 5E Zooming In On Monsters of the Multiverse [UPDATED!]

    Yes. But 5E is now old enough that old timers begin to forget and newcomers don't know. So they can start to reimplement things of 4E that worked very well. And there are quite a number of parts that did but got drowned out in the edition warring. And monsters especially the ones in the later...

    Game Design Masterclass: Emberwind

    Ah thank you for the hint. (y) Now I have found it. Talk about counter-intuitive shop set-up. Especially as the starter pack doesn't have the option to choose as PDF only. And that was the first thing I looked at. You need to go to the single books and change it there. But that small arrow for...
