    What are you reading in 2023?

    I recently finished the Dresden Files, so I picked this one back up. Looking at the posts above, it appears it’s quite the coincidence lol.

    OneDnD So Will 'OneD&D' (6E) Actually Be Backwards Compatible?

    2 weeks ago? Yes. Now? Only partly. Sure, it will be compatible, but you're gonna have to do some work to make that way. Kind of like B/X to AD&D. Sure, it can work, but you're going to have to make some changes to have a true conversion. I suspect mostly there will be name changes to old...

    TSR The Full & Glorious History of NuTSR

    Point still stands. I was going by memory. Which is even more funny, because Hasbro can sue him for that. During this whole OGL debacle, I have heard more than one IP lawyer give those original tables (like To Hit Tables in AD&D) as examples of what is copyright and not fall under mechanics...

    TSR The Full & Glorious History of NuTSR

    It's pretty much cut and pasted out of AD&D. You know, according to him, the only TRUE D&D :rolleyes: Those numbers were originally what you needed by rolling 2d6 to see if you turned the undead. You needed the number or higher. I wonder if he's using the OGL (cuz he needs to, if he's using...

    The Last of Us (HBO Max)

    The people review bombing probably never played the game, and if they did, probably couldn't make it past the first chapter.

    The Last of Us (HBO Max)

    Yeah, I think it's pretty pathetic. I think they are extra angry because one of their own (a hardcore survivalist) is depicted as gay and they can't handle it.

    The Last of Us (HBO Max)

    Same. The "Behind the Show" part was worth watching as well. I thought this was very well done.

    D&D General What monster names are public domain?

    Well, that's closer, since the original lore had them as miners. One thing I liked about the mythology was that Cobalt was named after Kobolds, as it was a substance that killed miners. This is the version I did for Twilight Fables, with the cobalt tie in

    TSR The Full & Glorious History of NuTSR

    He's trying to copy the original rule, where it was an extra d6 for every 10 feet cumulative with the steps before it, so: 10ft fall = 1d6 20ft fall = 3d6 (2d6+step 1) 30ft fall = 6d6 (3d6 + step 2 + step 1) etc. At least how Frank Mentzer explained the early gaming sessions, even if I can't...

    TSR The Full & Glorious History of NuTSR

    Well, if we're talking about nuTSR, page count doesn't matter. 48 or 480. It's not going to be a competently created book.

    OGL It is time to forgive WOTC and get back onboard.

    There was a phrase I heard years ago that I really like. "Forgiveness isn't about letting them off the hook. Forgiveness is about no longer allowing them to have the power to affect your emotions." What's the other phrase? "You can't have redemption without repentance?" Something like that...

    OneDnD Hypothetical Direction Shift For 1D&D/6E

    They did the same thing with 3e when they moved to 4e. 3e brought back tons of fans and growth from 2e, just 5e did. I see your point, but I also wouldn’t put any bad decision past them at this point

    OneDnD Hypothetical Direction Shift For 1D&D/6E

    I think they ar going back to the drawing board and compatibility is out the window. They’ve shown they really really want their IP, so we’ll see a system that is more unique than we’ve seen in the play test I don’t know what exactly that looks like. Major changes in alignment, race (species)...

    OGL Hasbro won't back off from deauthorizing the OGL, and nor should they.

    An anonymous insider whistleblower is not evidence, especially since other such “leaks” have already been debunked. That’s not how evidence works. Any my hypothesis was that this mess hasn’t driven hasbro stock at all. Because it hasn’t. I’ve already provided proof of this by citing the...

    OGL Hasbro won't back off from deauthorizing the OGL, and nor should they.

    Lol. That’s hardly evidence. Let me guess, same source that said they are charging $30 a month for Beyond?

    D&D General What monster names are public domain?

    Many are public domain in name, but not depiction. The kobold is a classic example.

    OGL Hasbro won't back off from deauthorizing the OGL, and nor should they.

    My hypothesis is that hasbro had no financial incentive based on the numbers to reverse course. How has that been proven false? Do you have any data that proves DND sales lost to the OGL mess is significant enough to drive the stock? Do you have insider knowledge that proves the financial...

    OGL Hasbro won't back off from deauthorizing the OGL, and nor should they.

    No, this is not true. Or at least, that's not the reason. We can tell by looking at Hasbro's stock over the past year. There are a lot of other things that have had a direct impact (earnings reports, layoffs, etc) that are much more highly correlated. Looking at each of the OGL announcements...
