    D&D 5E Orion Black No Longer a D&D Designer [UPDATED!]

    "welcoming to the millions who are scorned by it." Really? That's more than a little hyperbolic.

    RPG Evolution: Do We Still Need "Race" in D&D?

    Theres literally NO sound argument above as to why fantasy RPGs should ditch Race. Especially a quote from the Angry GM, "because I can’t speak for what happened in the Cinnabon or whatever that other book was called". Really? Thanks for your words of wisdom.

    5e combat system too simple / boring?

    In my experience both 3.5 and Pathfinder have that issue, though Pathfinder less so (MINUTELY). I wasted a TON of money and time on both and that demanding specificity was what killed it for me.

    5e combat system too simple / boring?

    Experienced "Tactical" players coming from Pathfinder might find it refreshing that classes other than WIZARD/CLERIC/BARBARIAN/PALADIN actually do well in combat by comparison, though it may seem "tactically" shallow.

    D&D 5E What classes do you want added to 5e?

    I think subclasses are the way to go. If folks want 60,000 class options, well, there are two (arguably) awesome systems already out there for that (Pathfinder and 4th). My only suggestion would be to revamp the EK into more of a Magus like subclass ala Pathfinder.

    [TRAILseeker #29] New Galems

    As a former orthodox jew educated in jewish mythology and kabbalah this makes my brain go ouchy. Also, expect the inevitable homophobe demographic to refer to them as Gay-Lems in short order. Bad idea.

    Pathfinder Online Layoffs; Ryan Dancey Leaves Company

    Terrible execution, completely unplayable. I was hoping this would pan out well, but now there's not a chance I'll play again.

    15 Roleplaying Game Predictions for 2015

    My prediction: Paizo comes out with another 10,000 class options, none of which helps Fighters or Rogues. The paizo forumites continue to argue about it while simultaneously being condescending towards anyone who doesn't fit their play style or world view.

    Early Enrollment for PATHFINDER Online Opens Today!

    I backed the KS, so they got my initial money. What I got in return is a pile of hot mess with ZERO indication as to how to even play the damn thing. It's a lifeless, dead world with one or two players randomly running around and statue NPC's. When creating a character you cant even rotate the...

    D&D 5E Can my table focus on making things fun instead of optimizing?

    I have to say, playing a Ranger as my first 5E character, that my non combat abilities have been vastly more useful than my DPR. Keeping the party alive in the Faerunian wilderness during HotDQ as well as being able to detect dragons here and there have kept us from being a mobile tpk.

    D&D 5E Can my table focus on making things fun instead of optimizing?

    I'm more for story vs optimization, but in my experience they're not mutually exclusive. That being said, I view adventurers/heroes as the SOF troops of fantasy land. And in my RW experience (20yrs+), special operators are optimized to hell. "Stronger" people are harder to kill.

    D&D 5E Any authors you think should be in Appendix E but are not?

    Gah! Almost forgot and not sure if anyone else mentioned it....Elizabeth Moon, for the Paksenarrion books. Definitely solid fantasy fiction and especially "d&d worthy".

    D&D 5E Does it seem like Nerath was dropped like a bad habit?

    That was SUCH a good comic. I'd rather have a one hundred more issues of Fell's Five than the pathfinder comic. The only thing that comes close is Rate Queens, from Image.
