    Huh, missed that. One more for the spreadsheet...

    D&D 5E Potential Monsters in Quests from the Infinite Staircase Adventures

    It is billed as a WotC product, actually. And it's available under their banner on DriveThruRPG, not merely DM Guild. And interestingly, it is available from Roll20. All makes its absence from DDB kinda weird.

    D&D 5E Potential Monsters in Quests from the Infinite Staircase Adventures

    Re: The Lost City: Worth noting that Goodman Games' OAR version did provide 5e stats for oil and tiger beetles, wood golems, werefoxes, devil swine, and (surprisingly) giant shrews. That probably ups the odds of an update here (Wizards might even be able to directly reuse them, if they wanted)...

    D&D (2024) How excited are you for the new 2024 edition d&d?

    1, only enough to give the new Monster Manual a look. What happens next depends on whether it impresses me.

    D&D General Original D&D cheat sheets

    As requested by @Autumnal, here are the (draft) cheat sheets I assembled for my upcoming Original D&D one-shot. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1efaWRd9oVCX_Aj6TVySIbBGtA41H0Pra Notes: These are based strictly on my understanding (and as needed, extrapolation) of the three books in the...

    Disney Buys DC: Who Joins The MCU?

    Eh, Captain Marvel gave Thanos trouble, and he trounced the Hulk, I'd think she counts. (Not that I'm objecting to including Wonder Woman in this MCDCU.)

    D&D 2E A bunch of 2e PDFs seem to have bumped up in price

    Might also be hoping to take advantage of theoretical interest in older-edition material in the 50th anniversary year. Personally, this will just make me unlikely to buy some of the remaining items I haven't yet acquired - mostly ones that were poorly scanned or missing pieces, where it was...

    What are you reading in 2024?

    Finally finished reading the original D&D boxed set this week. Overall verdict: it's basically a published set of homebrew rules, annoyingly incomplete and disorganized... but you can still see the glimmer of the greatness to come. Plus there are some genuinely interesting things there that...

    D&D General The abandoned core monsters of D&D

    FYI - just did a major update to the core monster spreadsheet, with the following changes: Added extra "other sources" columns for each edition that had more than one core monster book. For example, you can now see where 2e monsters appeared before being in the Monstrous Manual. As much as I...

    WotC Hasbro CEO Chris Cox talks about D&D on NPRs Here & Now. Topics include Layoffs and OGL.

    I'm sure, but Cocks indicated that the cuts in gaming weren't actually to "tighten the belt" - they were due to "changing priorities". So again, that raises the question of what priorities changed. What are they looking for in new talent that wasn't in the old guard?

    WotC Hasbro CEO Chris Cox talks about D&D on NPRs Here & Now. Topics include Layoffs and OGL.

    Yeah, I thought that was interesting. So they got rid of folks in the gaming department less because of budgetary needs, and more because they specifically wanted to get rid of those people, since they didn't fit a new set of priorities. I wonder what the new priorities are vs. the old?

    D&D (2024) No Dwarf, Halfling, and Orc suborgins, lineages, and legacies

    "Athaspace" - which became "Doomspace" in the final version of 5e Spelljammer - almost certainly gives us our best look at a 5e Dark Sun, and it would certainly have been very different from previous incarnations. I also recall DS fans on these very boards - to include 4e fans - being rather...
