    Do We Need More Alien Contact Films & Series?

    When we actually make contact with aliens, Most of the media we've produced about aliens will seem terribly embarrassing in retrospect.

    What is A Mountain?

    For a fantasy game, I think this is a better way to define it than deciding exactly how many feet or meters tall it must be. For what it's worth, though, National Goographic claims that "Most geologists classify a mountain as a landform that rises at least 1,000 feet (300 meters) or more above...

    DDAL 2014 Character Options Will be Playable in AL After the 2024 Release

    I was cynical about WotC's early claims that the new books would be fully compatible with the old books. But, it looks like they really meant it. Good on them.

    D&D General Dragonborn maturity

    That was then. Arkhosia has long-since fallen, and the splendors of dragonborn-craft went with it. (That or whoever was in charge of the art thought clubs would look cool.)

    Review Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos - First Party Review

    I haven't actually run 5e since before this book came out. But, I've already designed an encounter for ny next campaign using a Strixhaven statblock. Did you know that the Pest Mascot is actually the adult form of the larval Rot Grub? No, you didn't, because I made that up. Anyway, you're...

    Sorry, Rich. You failed your save vs. pumpkin spice. Roll up a new character.

    Review Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos - First Party Review

    Correction: The PC's don't reach 3rd level until they finish up at Captain Dapplewing's manor (page 86). Even by the standards of this book, it'd be pretty bad pacing to level up after a single fight against four mephits.

    Review Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos - First Party Review

    141 pages of this 224-page book is taken up by the adventure. That's well over half the book. It's an adventure book. They also don't have a lifespan, so who knows how old an Owlin student is? The only roleplaying suggestion is that maybe they are nocturnal (or not). It's stupendously...

    The Lord of the Rings has too many dang descriptions of trees and geographic formations. I don't need to know the exact layout of every gently rising hillock, wind-blown mead, and narrow defile these guys walk across. The Silmarillion is Tolkein's best novel.

    World of WarCraft was a brilliantly designed game and comparing [your favorite version of D&D] to it is not an insult.

    You can all stop posting new threads about the martial/caster divide now. Please. We have enough. We don't need more.

    What is a "Narrative Mechanic"?

    You're supposed to pretend that they do exist and do things. This is pretty basic stuff, my friend.

    D&D 5E Challenge Rating Is Imprecise (And That's OK)

    A few months ago, a friend of mine decided to try GM'ing for the first time and asked me for advice. I'm lazy, so I'm just going to copy-and-paste one if the things I told him:

    RPG Evolution: The Final War

    My current Bushido campaign started in 1500, and has now continued into 1501. Your post is making me regret not setting it further into the Sengoku Jidai. But, the ruleset didn't have guns and I didn't want to make up rules for them.
