    D&D General The D&D Memes Thread

    So, I asked my players a few months ago what kind of campaign they'd be interested in once I start a new game. After a few minutes of pretty much drawing blanks, guess what the one idea they came up with was.

    D&D General Real dice collectors

    My oldest set of polyhedral dice are the ones from my copy of the Black Box that I've had for a little over 29 years. I have some older d6s that might be as much as 10 years older, including the one numbered 1-3 twice that serves as my d3.

    Don't encourage him. Those puns are already worth a crate of rotten vegetables!

    D&D 3E/3.5 Brainstorming: Sir Stinksalot

    Well if you're doing a paladin, you might as well go full FRONCH. Besides, a Le Pew/French Knight mashup is ridiculously over the top too.

    D&D General WotC needs to bring back Boxed Sets - pic heavy

    I don't necessarily think it was that good for the consumer. All the bits and pieces in the boxes can get lost, there's all the problems with the posters I mentioned, and the boxes were more costly than simply printing things as a book. The creative teams certainly did good work with some of...

    Then give him a bad French accent, poor vision, and excessively amorous feelings towards female lizardfolk.

    D&D General WotC needs to bring back Boxed Sets - pic heavy

    Lord Soth's Charge (cropped btw) is on the reverse of a set of instructions for the Talis Cards, one of the box's gimmicks for the inevitable cardstock sheets. The cards can be used to play card games, they can be used for fortune telling as something like fictional tarot cards, and they can be...

    D&D General WotC needs to bring back Boxed Sets - pic heavy

    Good riddance, I say. The boxed set was the folly of Williams era TSR. They did produce some boxes before that, but the 2e era in particular saw a large proliferation of them. They weren't really that practical, and they cost more money than TSR realized over the long term. Some boxes made...

    grabs notebook and scribbles stuff down MORE scribbling That's easy. If a player deliberately throws himself into acid, tell him to rip up the character sheet and roll up a new one. Same thing with walking into the death field.

    My beard approves of this meme.

    I would never let my players get away with that one. Try to pull that, and the cleric finds it affects everyone in range, including the party. And their familiars. And animal companions.

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

    I suspect no matter what they do, there'll be a certain amount of drift over time anyway. Kind of on the order of how things drifted from early 1e to late 2e. Likely whatever the game looks like 10 years from now will probably have some differences when compared to 2014.

    D&D 3E/3.5 D&D 3.5 available Print on Demand.

    DMG. It advises new players to learn from an existing group of players. If not, the 1989 version tells them to start with the Red Box. As that was out of print by 1995, the newer DMG advises to pick up one of the introductory sets for 2e instead.

    WotC Backs Down: Original OGL To Be Left Untouched; Whole 5E Rules Released as Creative Commons

    Well looks like all this recent drama was the nerdrage heard 'round the world. Viva la revolution! No matter how much they want to spin it, WotC didn't win this round. They had to back down on the OGL stuff for now, but I think the damage is done. Paizo is still going ahead with ORC, and...

    Matt Colville weighs in.

    I won't. I usually find digital tools to be limiting and I'm not particularly interested in 6e in the first place.
