    Hey everyone! What's new?

    So, I've been very busy with my band and university and such, and 4e really turned me off of D&D, plus my group was getting kinda heated... so I basically have been completely avoiding everything D&D-related since last October or somesuch. So, just wondering what's been happening since 4e hit...

    Flails as Shield By-pass weapons...

    So, as introduced in From Stone to Steel (and what initially got me into this line of thought...), flails have that unique design in which they can 'reach around' a shield to smash down on an opponent. As it happens, I am completely revamping the entire 3e weapon list and I thought it would be...

    Nyaricus' Deluxe Character Sheet v5 [3.5e]

    Seems I can't get this right at all... I was gonna post my v5 Character Sheet on ENW, but then it shuts down, so I post it on CM, and by the time I'm back to work ENW2 is open and ready for buisness - thus my post was nixed twice! In any case, here's my Deluxe Faerun Character Sheet v5, with...

    I need a Latin translation, please

    So, I'm working towards getting my first few tattoos (yay!) and I want to have a couple Latin phrases done up (one being the famous quote "alea iacta est" by Suetonius and used by Caesar) buuuuut I need something else. I want to get a tattoo of a phrase that would roughly translate to "art is...

    Class Roles, Power Sources and what has yet to be done...

    Well, I'm sure there's been some discussion of the various class roles and power sources thus far, but I am creating this thread with the mind of classes we have yet to see in 4e and what class roles they might fill (and power sources they might use!) Cleric - divine leader Fighter - martial...

    My NEW Skill list (feedback greatly appreciated!) LONG POST!

    So, I played my first game of 4E this past Sunday, and in building my character and looking over the new shiny system, I really enjoy how much 4E's design has been focused on how skills are what a character can do. In my previous, albeit short-lived 'New Skill List Thread' about a month or two...

    I have a problem.... [DMing]

    It seems to me as though I have an issue as the (main) DM for my group. Rules knowledge? Nope. I'm basically the rules lawyer for the group. Big, over-arching plot-lines? Nada, I'm FULL of those! No, it seems as though my problem, my most vexing of issues, is that I'm just no good at the minor...

    Out-monking a Monk in 20 levels.

    So, here's a little challenge my buddy gave me - he wants me to make a character, specifically a fist-fighter, to out-monk his monk. He's still not convinced that even without VoP that the monk is an incredibly short-changed, rather crappy class. Minuses: Lots of attacks via FoB, crappy BAB...

    Introducing: my metal band Hoarfrost!

    Well folks, a few of you might have seen a post here and there about how I've been involved in one musical project or another - my latest one is a band which was formed back in January. It was Scott, a guitarist, who got everyone together, and I only nominally knew the guy before I was invited...

    A Gary Gygax Facebook Group

    Good day my fellow ENnies :) Yesterday, I created a Facebook group named 'A Tribute to Gary Gygax' in response to the passing of DM Prime. If you are a user of Facebook, please feel more than free to join and share your stories about Gary and/or your D&D experiences - myself and Raven Crowking...

    My First Scoop - info on 4e Gnolls! [Morrus, is this news worthy?!]

    Ari Marmell (sp?) was just saying this yesterday about how he likes the new gnoll flavour - and now in this scoop, Morrus linked us to Scott Winters blog, which had this to say: So, it seems gnolls are becoming more devilish in 4e, possibly their connection with what's-his-name (that devil lord...

    My new Skill list (feedback needed and appreciated!)

    This needs some revisions yet. I'll put it back up soon :)

    So, after 2 1/2 months, I'm still not a CSer...

    Hi Mods of ENW :) I purchased back in November 40 bucks worth of CS accounts. I sent an email to Morrus in December because I still didn't get it - no response. I replied to many threads before that talking about how I hadn't got my CS account, with no mod response. And now it's the New Years...

    3 months in and 7 to go - will YOU switch to 4e?

    Just curious as to what the consensus is on the boards in regards to the upcoming advent of 4e - will you continue with your pre-4e game (whatever edition it may be), convert your current game to 4e as best you can, or start afresh with a new game? Poll up in a few cheers, --N

    WotC: Let's Improve the Weapon List, Shall We?

    Y'know, Wizbang Dustyboots' thread about a genuine Sea Drake Missing from the rules plus myself brushing up my Weapon Groups rules for an upcoming campaign got me thinking: There are quite a few seemingly basic weapons missing from the rules. A brief brainstorm came up with the following: BIG...

    My Table Rules (Revised and Updated!)

    So, I did a big-little overhaul of my Table Rules as featured over in this thread, and... here we go again! As usual, I appreciate all feedback to my set of Table Rules and I tried to address every issue brought up in the other thread, which I believe I did :) If anyone has anything more to...

    My Table Rules (feel free to critique!)

    Hi folks! It was a looong time ago last year when we had a great thread on Table Rules someplace here, and I copy+pasted the entire thread into a word doc. Lo and behold, it was a behemoth 25+ pages long, but I took it down to about 4 pages, once a lot of the repeats had been deleted. Well...

    40 year old man wants to join my game

    So, despite the completely ripped off title (see: 14 year old girl wants to join my game) I'm completely serious. A 40 year old man wants to join my game. This isn't the first time this has happened, either. I have an add on D&D Meetups, and while I'm not explicit about the ages of my group I'm...

    So, I bet that the d12 is getting kicked to the curb...

    With 3rd edition, I recall the designers saying something to the effect of"we were almost done the core rulebooks when we realised we had almost written the d12 out of the game." Now, with 4th edition on the horizon, is there any real incentive to keep the d12? It's a rather clunky di, and the...
