    Playtest (A5E) Level Up Playtest Document #7: Ranger

    Agree with TheSword, I like having maneuvers for every fighter class and keeping some of the exploration stuff, but this ranger is so much better than the 5e one I don't see how the two editions could be compatible. Aside from that, I really like how the favored enemy and terrain can be changed...

    Pathfinder 2E Pathfinder 2 Core Layout

    Agreed that the index is far better in P2e, but the layout of the content in the book is my gripe.

    Pathfinder 2E Pathfinder 2 Core Layout

    Recently picked up the Pathfinder 2e core book, and while I still reserve judgement on my impressions of the system as a whole, one thing that I can't abide is the labyrinthian nature of how the book is written. I'll give an example. Say you want to know what Wild Shape does as you make your...

    [UPDATED] Out of the Abyss Reviews Have Started Rolling In

    "A good comparison is probably Chaosium’s Horror on the Orient Express" Sold.

    Sword Coast Legends vs. Divinity Original Sin.

    1. The gameplay in neither is unique. Isometric RPGs have been around since the early nineties, possibly earlier with Baldur's Gate and Planescape Torment. 2. I would pick them both for different reasons. I would pick Divinity for the well crafted, easily exploitable gameworld with its unique...

    [UPDATED] RAGE OF DEMONS! New D&D Storyline Features Drizzt, Underdark, & Demon Lords!

    Technically PotA is 3-15, with extra side missions to do if you start at 1st level. So I could see them doing something similar with this; perhaps a bunch of above ground missions setting up the terrors that lurk beneath the ground before the adventurers have to delve inside at 5th level?

    [UPDATED] RAGE OF DEMONS! New D&D Storyline Features Drizzt, Underdark, & Demon Lords!

    Except nobody bothered to actually read the description of the RPG itself and proceeded to post 8 pages of complaints about it. I'm not surprised they did put him front and center though. This is essentially a marketing campaign for the new book as well, which likely sells better than any D&D book.

    [UPDATED] RAGE OF DEMONS! New D&D Storyline Features Drizzt, Underdark, & Demon Lords!

    wow, it doesn't even mention Drizzt at all, and people are getting so up in arms about it? This sounds exactly like PotA, an adventure that anyone can transport to whatever setting they want. Almost like they've done this before or something.

    [UPDATED] RAGE OF DEMONS! New D&D Storyline Features Drizzt, Underdark, & Demon Lords!

    Well yeah, it is marketing spin. Drizzt is by far the most popular character to come out of D&D. Can you finish that last part though? Because it says "before he succumbs to his darker temptations". Sounds to me like you're going to be fighting him eventually.

    [UPDATED] RAGE OF DEMONS! New D&D Storyline Features Drizzt, Underdark, & Demon Lords!

    Holy crap there's a lot of negativity on this thread. Seriously, Drizzt must have done some horrible things to your mothers other than be in some mediocre books to warrant this kind of vitriol. Here's a few points that you guys should remember: 1. the D&D team has been more than willing to help...

    D&D 5E What I'd Like To See Added to 5E - Weapon Comparison

    It's definitely not going to happen, at least, not in the core rules. 5E is all about making things more streamlined for players to facilitate roleplaying rather than specific combat strategy. I like the idea in theory (although darts should never be able to do as much as a longsword in any...

    D&D 5E Proficiencies don't make the class. Do they?

    Reading up on the Artificer specifically, I can see why people could get a little bit distraught that they would simply lump them in with Wizards. They aren't really Wizards, but they aren't really anything else either. They use Intelligence, yes, but their power comes from within, separate from...

    Why Is Chris Perkins Tweeting Page Snippets Of Mongrelfolk?

    I dunno. Wasn't it only about a month between the announcement of Princes of the Apocalypse and its release? We knew it was coming ahead of time due to leaks, but there wasn't actually an official announcement until very very close to release.

    D&D 5E Dungeons and Dragons and the RPG Stigma

    Mid 20s for me. He's gotten engaged with me on other topics like the new Avengers movie and video games. Really it's only been D&D which is why I was curious if anyone else has had such adverse reactions.

    D&D 5E Dungeons and Dragons and the RPG Stigma

    He's a young doctor in his mid 30's if that helps at all. Makes it even worse for me to be honest.

    D&D 5E Dungeons and Dragons and the RPG Stigma

    This is an interesting point to me. Not many that I've talked to have even known what the game entails, apart from perhaps Community or The Big Bang Theory. It just seems to be engrained in them that D&D must be the ultimate nerdy thing, that only the überist of nerds would possibly play it. The...

    D&D 5E Dungeons and Dragons and the RPG Stigma

    A curious thing happened to me today that I'm guessing has happened around a dozen times ove the last year. I work at a hospital essentially as a unit clerk, and as such I have quite a bit of time on my hands. Recently, I've taken to bringing my 5E books to prepare for material for upcoming...

    D&D 5E D&D AL Play reports: Princes of the Apocalypse, sessions 1-23

    I don't see the impetus for non-good aligned characters to want to do any of this. I played my first session the other day with all Neutral players, and none of them really wanted to help any of the villagers out. Since they're on a quest mostly for gold and loot, I had to think of my own hooks...

    Holy crap, that Tiara is only 1,000 gp??? I don't think that's the acceptable level of power for such a price. And this is going to be a pain in the a** for DM's to keep track of. Edit: Wait, I just noticed that the price is 1,000 gp, but the construction cost is 132,000? I played Pathfinder...

    D&D 5E Suggestions on modifying 5e to give characters more bonuses

    I don't think they're paying a whole lot of attention to their characters then. Taking just the warlock, he just got his Chain pact at level 3, which is very powerful and can provide excellent scouting and potential damage (the imps tail attack is especially potent at low levels). From 2nd to...
