    Warhammer: Age of Sigmar: Soulbound: Starter Set PDF Coming Monday

    I'm definately looking forward to it. I paint Age of Sigmar-miniatures and love diving into lore of the worlds I engage with. Age of Sigmar had a difficult / mismanaged launch back in 2015 and one of the things people didn't like about it was the lack of any real lore or background information...

    Xanathar's, Wizards, and FLGSes Charging For Playspace

    Scott, you shouldn't feel like you are asking for charity when your price is higher than Amazon. Nor should you feel that Amazon outcompeted you fair and square. Amazon and other online retailers, but particularly Amazon, are often said to have outcompeted bookstores all over Europe...

    Dragonlance Joe Manganelio is Writing the D&D Movie? And Is it DRAGONLANCE?

    I don't think anyone expects the D&D film to provide cinematic art. If only they could make a well-crafted fantasy blockbuster, that would be amazing. But I have my doubts.

    WotC's Irwin, Tanji, and Crawford on Tales from the Yawning Portal's Art Direction

    I LOVE that White Plume Mountain-map. It has such a wonderfully fairly tale-flavour to it. As a DM who thought the adventure campaigns are really cool, but ultimately doesn't really fit into my way of running games (too large, too much prep), Yawning Portal will be the perfect companion book to...

    D&D 5E Mystic Speculation

    I wish the class was called "psionist" instead of "mystic". The latter just seems so generic and could easily encompass other classes. Couldn't "mystic" easily also include "wizard" and "cleric"? Psionist is a lot less generic. I hope they keep the flavour of the Dark Sun psionics.

    Three new feats, please critique

    Yes, I think you have a very good point. I need to try to figure out special maneuvers that are powerful, thematical and yet not overly complex. I'll give it a shot. Now I understand why WoTC hesitate so much creating new feats :)

    Three new feats, please critique

    Two players in my campaign love the idea of a fighter / rogue dagger expert. But they will never pick daggers, because they suck. Another player in my campaign is very happy with Polearm Master, constantly saying how wonderful that polearms are finally given mechanical support.

    Three new feats, please critique

    Thanks for the feedback, guys! I've tinkered a bit with Dagger Master based on your advice. DAGGER MASTER Your skill with daggers is extraordinary. You gain the following benefits: • Increase your Dexterity or Strength by 1, to a maximum of 20. • Daggers you use have a d6 damage die instead...

    Unearthed Arcana Unearthed Arcana: Revenant Subrace, Monster Hunter, and Inquisitive

    The fighter archetype is so generic that I'm falling asleep just reading it.

    D&D Psionics Survey; Plus "First Major Mechanical Expansion" Coming?

    I just hope that there will be some more feats. I know feats are optional, but I really love them, especially the meaty feats of 5E, and they are an excellent way to customize characters.

    D&D 5E [Out of the Abyss]Magic item distribution?

    You could have monsters that have special attacks that are "armour piercing", i.e. if they attack a character that has an AC of 20 or higher, they get a +X bonus to hit. Of course, just a few monsters should be like this, it would feel too much like a gimmick if every monster starts having this...

    Last D&D Survey Results In! Plus What's Up With The Ranger?

    I'm very comfortable with the current pace of releases. So yeah, we exist, but we're not that vocal.

    Checking Out The RAGE OF DEMONS Minis from GF9

    I love these miniatures! I bough the red dragon and had a friend assemble and paint it. I'm gonna collect these, at the least the large, iconic ones. Love, love, love the Demogorgon miniature!

    D&D 5E Observations

    My players have yet to figure out how powerful the Great Weapon Master feat is, but Polearm Mastery is incredibly strong. The fighter with a polearm has been ripping the enemies to shreds. It does seem like a much stronger feat than many (most?) of the others.

    OUT OF THE ABYSS Has Derro - Check Them Out!

    Are these all the new creatures in the adventure? We're not getting stats for the demon lords?

    D&D 5E Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide: Player Content Guesses

    Do you guys think there will be a few new feats? I know feats are optional, but it would be cool to see at a least a sprinkling of new feats (somewhere between 5-8).

    Check Out This Sneak Peek At OUT OF THE ABYSS

    The art is otherworldly and truly makes her look alien and intimidating. I LOVE THAT! In my opinion, The Abyss should have alien / weird looking evil fiends and The Nine Hells should have classic devil-type creatures.

    D&D 5E New DRAGON+?

    The "Rage of Demons" ad features some new miniatures from Galeforce Nine: Graz'zt and Zuggtmoy! I really want those. This was a really cool issue of Dragon+. Marketing done right.
