    Gaming at the Kids’ Table: The FirstFable RPG

    Thanks for the overview/review of the game! Maybe a new category/tag could be created for "children" or "young gamers" so it would be easy to find all the related content quickly.

    A New Digital Direction for Wizards?

    The problem with using D&D IP in movies is that the rulesets obviously don't translate and settings are more about building a sandbox than about a particular story. Since movies are all about stories and charaters, there's just not a whole lot "there". The most recognizable character in the...

    Pathfinder Comes To Fantasy Grounds & d20Pro's been so long since I'd heard Gamespace mentioned that I'd forgotten it was ever a thing. I guess I don't feel too bad about missing out on the closed beta now.

    D&D 2E Recovering previously-bought PDFs of D&D Basic to 2E

    If you subscribe to Microsoft Office 365, you get 1TB of Onedrive storage included with the subscription (and if you share the subscription with more than one Microsoft account, they each get their own 1TB of OneDrive storage). That's a very, very good deal IMO.

    SCL: Stumbled coming out of the gate or simply fallen on it's face?

    I have to agree. I really feel deceived about the game. They claimed the Baldur's Gate lineage, but have no lived up to it at all. They said that the game would be similar to pen & paper D&D, but it isn't similar to it at all beyond the surface. I'm not happy with the game at all. I was one...

    D&D Does Digital Part III: PDFs

    The temptation to pirate material is definitely there, but I have more than enough opportunity to purchase other systems which keep me busy. At this point in my life, I have a extra money but not much time. I don't use much of the RPG-related stuff I purchase. For example, I have every single...

    D&D Does Digital Part III: PDFs

    I don't purchase physical books of any sort anymore, with very rare exceptions (basically, work-related books that I may want to share with a colleague or client). I don't have a lot of extra space, and I'm not going to clutter my living area which I take a lot of pride in with unnecessary and...

    D&D Does Digital Part III: PDFs

    That's fair, though the basic PDFs are just that and don't contain all of the content of the core books. I don't particularly like being treated like a second-class citizen because I want PDFs.

    D&D Does Digital Part III: PDFs

    I have stopped purchasing physical copies of RPG products for the simple reason that they take up too much space. I either get it as a PDF or don't get it at all. Unfortunately, in the case of D&D 5E, that means I don't get it at all. The game sounds wonderful, but I will never see it or play...

    Have you heard about the "Pathfinder Online Technology Demo" Kickstarter?

    I know that's part of the purpose, but you would think they'd have a $1 level which allows you to see the tech demo or something (since that doesn't really cost them anything). Additionally, they can use things like subscribers to their Twitter feed, Facebook page, and newsletter to show...

    Have you heard about the "Pathfinder Online Technology Demo" Kickstarter?

    This is also what bothers me about the Kickstarter. $50k is nothing when it comes to a project like this. It's especially strange because $50k isn't even going to go to them (assuming they funded at exactly $50k) due to fees and taxes. That's the kind of cash that these people should have on...

    D&D 3.5 Reprints in September?

    "Provolone" certainly doesn't sound like a real name to me, so my bets would also be on this and possibly the "3.5" books being part of the D&D Next release.

    D&D 5E Monte Cook Leaves WotC - No Longer working on D&D Next [updated]

    I'm not jumping to any conclusions. A disagreement with the company could be anything. Maybe the coffee in the break room was so repulsive to him that he was forced to quit. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with 5E other than that he won't be helping to develop it going forward.

    Pathfinder 1E Order of Golarion APs

    Actually, Shattered Star will treat the events of Rise of the Runelords, Second Darkness, and Curse of the Crimson Throne (or one of the other ones) as historic events so in theory it would add something to that AP if you've played the other three previously. You could got with Rise of the...

    Masterwork Ring/Amulet

    Yes. These are non-magic items, so you can wear as many as you want and they don't take up a "slot" because they don't have an impact on the characters' abilities. This has always been the case. Another idea would be to use a tattoo or brand.

    Pathfinder 1E Pathfinder Open Reference: Looking for feedback

    If you're looking for something on the smartphone in the meantime, there is an app called PFRPG RD which is good (though not free).

    D&D Next (5E) Updates, Pax East, and a Poll

    I voted that yes, Vancian Magic should be core for those classes. That said, Paizo allows for casting unlimited Level 0/Cantrips. That prevents Wizards from ever having to dirty their hands with traditional weaponry if they desire. That seems like a good compromise to me.

    An old friend goes missing, and you receive her phone in the mail...

    In real life I'd take the phone to the police ;) In an RPG or movie setting, I would probably see who's listed in the Emergency Contacts (since I assume the phone is locked and has a password protecting it which I don't know) to see who/what is listed. If the phone isn't locked, I would...
