    Nominate your favorite TTRPG podcast of 2022

    Morrus' Unoffical Tabletop RPG Talk show. Talk Reasons: It has wonderful ad reads by Malik the Maleficent. It provides all the TSR news. The hosts provide some really interesting insights into game design and the business end of gaming. The last of which i'd normally be adverse to but the...

    RPGs, group therapy, and getting paid.

    I GM for a group that includes occupational therapists and social workers. Apparently some of them have been doing some reading on the use of tabletop RPGs in group therapy. Because one of their managers has asked for a casual chat about paying me to run sessions for some of their clients. It...

    Dragonlance Dragonlance Philosophy thread

    This might be a place to shift the argument. In a regime where Michael Carpenter is the absolute ruler, is there a place for Dresdenverse svartelves? The Winter Queens? Wizards? Or are they all just too dangerous? And need to be done away with? Because, from memory, a Final Solution to...

    D&D General The First Map of the Forgotten Realms

    Is there a digital copy of the map? I'd be interested in comparing it, since i run my campaigns in Faerun, albeit one altered by a good many campaigns.

    Level Up (A5E) Improvised Weapons: Ever the Smart Move?

    Current campaign, it is considered gauche to go about the big city while armed, that is something country people do. So improvised weapons have come up a few times. But i think that is the only time. As far as i can recall there has never been a "captured and disarmed moment", players have...

    Level Up (A5E) "Kingmaker"-alikes

    I've been running a Westmarches-ish Kingmaker-style campaign for about six-months now. Not to suck up but the core a5e books have pretty much everything needed. I was going to use some of 'Strongholds & Followers but it's high fantasy is increasingly not suiting the tone of the campaign...

    Level Up (A5E) I Counted Every Spell

    Fair enough. LSD spells were me getting side tracked.

    Level Up (A5E) I Counted Every Spell

    Do you think it that powerful? I went with level 3 because it felt halfway between fog cloud and cloudkill. It doesn't do any damage. It's a Constitution save, so levels of strife won't put further saves from the spell at disadvantage. I can't imagine any low Constitution PC sticking around...

    3PP Release FREE Halloween treat! Ecology of Gravitas: The Green Witch

    Pretty good. Old Salty, green hag, male (to throw off suspicion). Wanting to get a fey artifact from behind wards barring fey. Impersonated a young wanna be adventurer, Kesi,to trick the PCs into removing the artifact from behind the wards.

    Level Up (A5E) A5e is Backwards Compatible with O5e. What if it wasn’t?

    Link a creature's ability to speak to its Charisma rather than its Intelligence. All the other communication skills tend to be associated with CHA rather than INT - intimidation, performance, persuasion, et cetera... And as far as i recall in both of the MM books creatures that can not speak...

    Level Up (A5E) Synergy Builds Costs/Benefits

    I just switched a second table over from o5e to a5e. This time with pre-existing characters. We re-built those characters from scratch. Three of five of them had lower attribute bonuses. Which the players were kinda leery about. However, once we started rolling die, and the expertise die...

    NPC. Gnome traits with Crystalline Psionics & Master of Creation. A cleric of Gond and master of the League of Wheelmen (that's the college that investigates ancient technology, since i am also using Monty Cook's 'Numenera' in the campaign). Master Chandu has already been described as having...

    Ooooh. I just realised half-Talos are possible. Since there are several gifts that don't require Talos traits. :)

    Level Up (A5E) Do heavy armors come with cloth armor to wear underneath?

    I read up on it recently for a campaign loosely based on the Swahili Coast and more northern Islamicate cities. Silk harvesting and weaving was mechanised in China about 1000 CE. They were limited to hand and water power so it wasn't as significant as cotton and steam power but there were...
