    There's An Official Monty Python RPG Coming

    As my forum username and title are Monty Python references, I'm guessing this will wind up being a manditory purchase for me (though I'll likely never actually play it).

    AD&D Settings Sales Comparison 79-98

    The other factor that is worth considering is sales/release. I admittedly haven't looked back the information on the actual number of releases (though when has a lack of knowledge prevented someone from opining on the internet), but if, for example, Forgotten Realms had three core releases in...

    D&D 5E D&D Cartoon Character Miniatures Are Coming!

    Waxing nostalgic about the cartoon and "Uni" reminded me of something that happened with my daughter when she was little (she is now 17 and a DM herself). She had a decent-sized rainbow unicorn that she very creatively decided to name "Uni". A few months later, we found a miniature version of...

    What If Sauron Won? Check Out This Trailer For The MIDNIGHT RPG!

    The original Midnight setting was fantastic and I'm thrilled to see it get a new release. Here's hoping this does well enough that they can release a adventure book for those of us who aren't creative enough to author their own campaigns.

    Meet GallantFunding, A Kickstarter Competitor

    In the first paragraph, the links embedded for the "Kickstarters’ controversial move to blockchain technology" text currently go to the Gallant Knight Games kickstarter page of created projects and not a page about the this topic (which I know nothing about and was interested in reading an...

    D&D 5E Tasha’s Cauldron Delayed Outside North America

    Since multiple people have mentioned they had to look it up but didn't say what it actually is, it is probably worth saying that it stands for "Asia Pacific"

    Baldur's Gate Designer Leaves Bioware To Form D&D Publishing Company

    BTW, for anyone who goes to their website and tries to sign up for notifications (and the players' guide when available), the email confirmation link you receive may be broken and needs to have a period inserted between "manage" and "com". I've notified the site.

    Opening Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes

    Since it took me an embarrassingly long time to figure this out myself, I thought that I would mention that the "Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes Primer" mentioned in the review is included in the AL Player's and DM's pack and is not a separate product that you will find by searching.

    Custom Shield Proficiency Feat Ideas

    Good points, everyone. I guess the mystical '3rd thing' I was looking for is really the ability to bypass the normal armor proficiency tiers. I proposed the +1 to Str or Dex and Shield proficiency feat to the player and she agreed. Thanks for the help.

    Custom Shield Proficiency Feat Ideas

    One of my PCs is playing a sorcerer and would like to spend a feat to gain proficiency in shields. I believe that the only RAW ways for her to gain shield proficiency are through multi-classing or taking the Moderately Armored feat, which requires proficiency in light armor (which sorcerers do...

    D&D 5E MPMB's D&D 5e Character Tools

    When you put it like that :) I understand now what the sheet is trying to do. I am pretty sure that I ran into some cases where this duplicated background equipment was being counted in weight but the item count in the inventory list was not visibly incremented. However, my simple case above...

    D&D 5E MPMB's D&D 5e Character Tools

    Thank you for creating the character sheet, it is fantastic. I think I have discovered an error in the weight carried calculation in version v12-998 (I believe it was there before as well), where sometimes it is double counting equipment. I think I have it pinned down to the "All three of the...

    Give me your monster conversion request!

    Fantastic work all around, Sacrosanct. On the Lupin's sheet: for Lupin as Race, shouldn't the Observant Learner say that you begin play with "proficiency" in one additional skill of your choice?

    9 essential geek books you must read right now.

    8 of 9 Oddly, the one I'm missing is Watchmen. I highly recommend both of the more obscure books on the list (GED and Visual Display of Quantitative Information) but they do have a more limited audience than the other seven.
