    Any Christian rpgs?

    Yeah - depends on the Christian.

    Planet of the Apes Roleplaying Game Coming from Magnetic Press

    The setting seems very game-able to me. Post-apocalyptic settings and fiction are popular, and the sentient apes thing puts another spin on it.

    Arc Dream Announces Black Company RPG

    Very interested! I fell in love with the first book, and then made the mistake of reading the relatively recent 1.5 book (Port of Shadows, set between the 1st and 2nd books). I'm hoping time will scrub some of the content of that book away so I can go back and enjoy the 2nd book.

    Disney Buys DC: Who Joins The MCU?

    If I was magically in charge, I would do everything in my power to make it not be Batman. I think Wonder Woman would be a good call. She comes with a bunch of mythological stuff, which the MCU has already tapped into, and she'd be a physical powerhouse to match any of the super-dudes.

    Planet of the Apes Roleplaying Game Coming from Magnetic Press

    Terra Primate was a really good product, with several suggestions for new ways to approach the general, IP-free, "world run by apes" premise. It's one of those gaming books I regret getting rid of, but voila! it's on DriveThru for $5!!! Sold! I am a big PotA fan, so I will back the bejeebus out...

    When, How and What Do You Play?

    Weekly, 4-5 hours, Friday nights, D&D 5E. We rotate DMs based on who's done with what they've been running and who wants to DM next. We sprinkle in other rpgs and boardgames when the current DM can't run, or as one-shots/short-runs between one DM finishing and another beginning. We have 3...

    RPG Evolution: The AI DM in Action

    Noodling around with an AI image generator until you get exactly what you want is arguably not making art, because a) art isn't about getting what you want, and b) no artists winds up where they wanted when they first started a piece.

    RPG Evolution: The AI DM in Action

    I think this is a good way to approach things.

    RPG Evolution: The AI DM in Action

    I would think one example would definitely be insufficient to prove anything, if proving such a thing were even possible. "better than human art" is how to say you haven't seen enough "human art" without saying you haven't seen enough "human art".

    What is/are your most recent TTRPG purchase(s)?

    Paradigms of Skill, by Jesse Mullins, from Plant Witch Press. It's provides a 1-6 (1d6) range of Critical Success and Critical Failure results for all of the 5E and A5E skills. It's $5 on DriveThruRPG. I like it! I want to re-write a few things just to suit my tastes. It's kind of uncanny that...

    RPG Evolution: The AI DM in Action

    I wonder if it would be feasible and worth their time to add AI features that make DMing easier for neurodivergent folks. Obviously, there are lots of ways one can be neurodivergent, but the example I can think of is making it easier to run combats by - on a turn by turn basis - make it...

    D&D (2024) Most OP Sub-Classes with the 2024 rules?

    Currently playing a fighter Battle Master, and the combination of the new Weapon Mastery Properties, Combat Maneuvers, and Two-Weapon Fighting is kind of ridiculous.

    D&D (2024) Your experiences with the 2024 playtest classes

    I've been playing the UA fighter for a while, and I have some thoughts. This got me wondering what other peoples' experiences have been with the UA playtest class revisions. I like that the fighter has a new layer of options in combat now. A lot of this comes from Weapon Mastery, but also...

    Level Up (A5E) A5E + alt-5E = ?

    I've run a LU ranger in a WOTC 5E game, and it worked just fine. The LU classes are technically more powerful than standard 5E classes, but most of the extra stuff is non-combat, so it fleshes out the classes rather than making them more awesome at killin' stuff. I've also used the exploration...

    ICv2 Reports Disappointing Year For Hobby Games Channel: TTRPGs Down, D&D Declines 30%

    The industry and hobby is probably holding its breath to some extent, waiting to see how the 2024 edition and DDB's new features play out.

    Ben Riggs: 'The Golden Age of TTRPGs is Dead'

    Understandable, and I'm roughly in the same place. I'm running the UA playtest fighter right now, and although the changes are improvements in my opinion, they are marginal, house-rule-able/hand-wave-able, and maybe a day late and dollar short - meaning other 5E games and supplements have...
