    D&D General Homebrew Brainstorm: How Would You Approach a "Descendant Worship" Culture? (+)

    While not looked at as an object of worship, one pop cultural reference for this would be The every family for it's self nature leaves a lot of gaps in the culture, while one that is about the progress of the all, leaves reasons to work together. I think another question would be the birth...

    Costs of a kickstarter project (transparency)

    However some KS will allows for additional art, or even the funding of the art (several I've backed have followed this model), of having text complete, and funding the art and other features that make the final book more pleasant to view. Also on the printing cost per unit, this can often...

    D&D General House of the Dragon has me thinking about Succession

    Often arrange marriages between houses, the parties would never have met before the wedding. Also the house did not combine, but become close allies, often it would be the heir of one house marring the second or third child of another - very rear I think for the heir of two house to marry...

    D&D General House of the Dragon has me thinking about Succession

    Right, what is needed here is a justification for why the regent came to be, what reason for having a regent take and hold power. And also keep the power. I'm going to set aside the question of the spouse as successor for now. Now one option for this would be to have the eldest child (the...

    D&D General House of the Dragon has me thinking about Succession

    I think this is a core question, what allowed for the regent to remain in power. However I'd also ask the question that's come up a few times - why have a widower/widow regent, when the heir is of age? This as said a few times seems to be an issue that invites complication opens up...

    D&D General House of the Dragon has me thinking about Succession

    As stated above the gender of the spouse does not mater in this case, it is who is of the blood and descended in the line. A key issue is also this is not privet inheritance - which may be separate from the crown. This case is discussing the body corporate know as the crown that is personified...

    D&D General House of the Dragon has me thinking about Succession

    The main issue I'd see with the above is that the Queen is not the only Elf in the kingdom, and others will also remember, and possibly hold records (again going to the idea of the college of heralds). The main thing I see happening here is we get biggest army diplomacy and the war of...

    D&D General House of the Dragon has me thinking about Succession

    Not wanting to make to many holes in things, however it seems that you have a set up where a regent is ruler until they die. Where usually a regent is caretaker ruler until the one they rule on behalf of comes of age, or recovers from what ever is preventing them from ruling. The second item to...

    Worlds of Design: Modern vs. Medieval Maps

    I'd say that there are several factors being mixed up in the original post. That maps can show the distance between locations, the direction between places, and the shape of the territory. The map that shows the real structure of the world as the one at the top of the nation with the provenances...

    D&D 5E Build/Stats to Sauron in DND 5e

    One option would be to take the stats from MERP, and use the conversion to D20 guide to convert him over. Stats can be found in Lords of Middle Earth Volume 1.

    RPG Crowdfunding News – HEROES OF CERULEA, Deadlands, Starlight Arcana, and more

    A request with the Crowdfunding News threads, would it be possible to have the posting date added to the thread title - some times get confused if which week/thread I'm looking at, and would help also when look back over old ones to know when they where. Any way this is just a thought

    I'd also add that there is an 80+ page Player's Guide and Gazetteer that included all the The introduction and what is role play background info on the languages and cultures from the core book, including some pre-gen characters all the bits for character gen, and then 14 page Gazetteer which...

    D&D 5E [Let's Read] The Adventurer's Guide to the Bible

    @Libertad thanks for the review, and the full coverage. I think I'd agree with most of this review. I think I'd agree about the Way of the Cross bit, and considered when running it I'd likely move everything after the garden to a cutscenes, and move onto the next section. I'd also agree there...

    What IP would you like to see as an RPG?

    In this case I'd not use Adventures in Middle Earth, but would use MERP - add in the rest of RoleMaster and SpaceMaster and likely the answer would be yes.
