    Low-Magic Campaign

    I still like this one All these years later, and this post comes to mind. Well done, Caliburn101. My campaign is pretty vanilla 5E, now. However, I am thinking about using these variants for certain groups of NPCs in my world. That way, my players still get to play the high fantasy...

    Pathfinder 2E The Golarion Role Playing Game

    I like that Golarion is infused into the Pathfinder 2nd Edition rulebooks. Although I have been using PF1 as the core rules for my homebrew since shortly after PF was released, I haven't been playing in Golarion. Now, from the little bit of it that I've seen in the PF2 Core Rulebook and...

    D&D 5E Building a better Warlock

    I like this alternate Warlock that Caliburn101 offered in another thread. I haven't gotten to try it out, yet, but I am planning on building a few as NPCs for an upcoming adventure.

    D&D 5E When to Award XP?

    Anymore, I just assume that ongoing training had been going on prior to gaining the XP, perhaps even before adventuring... The XP just makes it "click". Therefore, I will usually allow levelling up during a long rest, if I've awarded XP.

    Pathfinder 1E Balancing Iterative Attacks Against an Alternative

    WOW ! That Unarmed Strike feat is insane! (Initial reaction without understanding what's different in that game.) It's way beyond a Pathfinder Monk's unarmed strike damage (not considering all the ways a Monk could boost damage in PF), but perhaps it's compensated for by allowing only one...

    Pathfinder 1E Balancing Iterative Attacks Against an Alternative

    Thanks, Staffan. Much appreciated. I do remember Trailblazer's option and that it was "slightly more powerful than the regular iteratives, particularly at low levels." I may just start with that, at least for the full BAB classes. What I have in mind is (and am already doing) is combining...

    Pathfinder 1E Balancing Iterative Attacks Against an Alternative

    One of the things I like about The Starfinder Roleplaying Game is that anyone can make two attacks at -4/-4 instead of their normal attack bonus for a single attack. Our group added that rule to our house rules for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, this past weekend and it worked great...

    D&D 5E Sorcerous Origin Bonus Spells

    I like the idea presented in the original post. Very similar to how I handled converting an Undead Bloodline Sorcerer from Pathfinder to 5E. Not overpowering, at all.

    Using flip mats , prepared battle mats etc

    Dungeon tiles that are only big enough to show a small section of the dungeon at a time... Search for DM Scotty's 2.5D Dungeon tiles for an idea... Also, Drunkens & Dragons 2.6D Dungeon Tiles...

    D&D 5E [Poll] How Satisfied Are You With the Fighter Class?

    Overall, I like the fighter; especially the champion. I like the Battle Master the least of the core sub-classes. I do wish the Player's Handbook would've included more sub-classes. For instance, a fighter sub-class that functions as an outdoor specialist or spell-less ranger... I'd've liked...

    Unearthed Arcana WotC's Mearls Presents A New XP System For 5E In August's Unearthed Arcana

    I like some of the ideas. It seems to have some simularties with the XP system used in Dungeon Crawl Classics... Different math, but similar feel, while expanding guidelines for the other two pillars of play... Overall, food for thought and I'll probably adopt some of the ideas, but not...

    Low-Magic Campaign

    Thank you for posting this, Caliburn. Feels like some great options for another class, even if not in a low magic, sword & sorcery setting.

    Pathfinder 1E Returning to D&D 3.75 er I mean Pathfinder

    I'll have to give Unchained a more in depth look. I've only skimmed the revised action economy and didn't fully grasp all the elements of it well enough to put it into play, yet. Will definitely have to give it another look.

    Pathfinder 1E Returning to D&D 3.75 er I mean Pathfinder

    That we do, Starfox. I just ordered some more Pathfinder Pawns, today, and got a few more of the bestiary and setting PDF's, this weekend. Really like the artwork and story elements in the PDFs. The PRD is nice as a reference, but the artwork is inspirational, too.

    Pathfinder 1E Monster Feats & books help please...

    Great questions, RevTurkey. I think if you take the time to familiarize yourself with the feats and othe abilities of the monsters/enemies beforehand, taking whatever notes you need to, you will be fine. You may occasionally need to reference the Pathfinder Reference Document at

    Starfinder Starfinder Preview Looks At The Mystic Class

    Looks interesting, to me. I was on the fence about Starfinder, but it now has my interest. I think I'm really looking forward to learning the story elements behind it.

    Pathfinder 1E Returning to D&D 3.75 er I mean Pathfinder

    I buy the pdfs and the pawns because I like the artwork and minis are expensive.

    D&D 5E Sandy Peterson's Cthulhu Mythos for 5E ??

    Monte Cook's d20 version of CoC had the characters using NPC classes rather than PC classes. And, though I'm not looking at it, I wouldn't be surprised if stats were rolled using 3d6 or were bought with a lower point buy than standard 3.0/3.5 D&D. — EDIT: Just checked... The d20 version used...

    Pathfinder 1E Returning to D&D 3.75 er I mean Pathfinder

    Mathfinder :lol: It's definitely math intensive, but there's just so much to love about Pathfinder that the math is worth it. Currently I'm unwilling to play 5E without bringing in lots of stuff to Pathfinder. And, earlier this week I started thinking, wouldn't it be easier to import what I...
