    Left Out In The Cold With The Price Of Freedom RPG

    I remember it coming out in the 80's and the amusing contraversy it caused in the White Dwarf letters page. Looking back at it now (and the few times it's been reviewed) it does appear to be a more of a satire than anything else. The fact it's by Greg Costikyan who also wrote Paranoia and...

    List of monsters confirmed in Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes

    Those Star Spawn names make me think that they're new versions of the Foulspawn instead of the 4E Star Spawn, unless there's several others in the book. I'll be happy to see 5E versions of the Foulspawn, but I was really hoping for 5E versions of the 4E Star Spawn as well. Those monsters were...

    List of monsters confirmed in Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes

    I am so stoked about this book. I've been hoping for 5E Starspawn since they weren't in the MM, and just as I was about to homebrew Marut for my current campaign, they're in the book about to be released. WotC must have read my mind.

    The Enemy Within Coming For WFRP 4!

    Awesome! I with any luck there's a reasonable amount of new or revised material in it. The Enemy Within is a brilliant campaign, even if a lot of the links between the adventures are spurious at best. Shadows over Bogenhafen, Death on the Reik, and Something Rotten in Kislev are some of my all...

    D&D 5E 100 Wilderness Events

    26. The PCs come across a Waterfall. Off course there's a cave behind it with either some monsters, or some treasure. 27. A massive wind storm hits. The PCs need to tie themselves down, or find some permanent shelter to avoid being blown away or badly hurt by the weather.

    Unearthed Arcana Unearthed Arcana October 2017: Fiendish Options

    Not a bad UA over all. The tiefling stuff is nice for players who want a bit of difference, although it doesn't quite fit with my ideas on Tieflings, which is based fairly heavily on 4Es Baal Turoth background. The Fiendish Cults stuff I do like a lot though. Reminds of the old Monster Themes...

    Where Do They Go For More Food?

    I've always been fascinated by the practicalities of feeding people in RPGs, especially with huge fantasy metropolises. I doubt my players care, but I like to have some sort of explanation. My current setting has both Goblins and Kobolds folded into normal society, and between their Giant Rat...

    D&D 5E What spells from previous edition do you want in XGTE?

    Leomund's Secure Shelter. Always liked the idea of a Spellcaster making their own little cottage, no matter where they were. Not a specific spell as such, but I would like to see a few Sorcerer exclusive spells added to the game.

    D&D 5E Tomb of Annihilation Appendix N

    Apocalypse Now, and Heart of Darkness. Congo The World of Kong. The book by Weta Workshop about their version of Skull Island Ant Wars, and Flesh book 1, from the early days of 2000AD.

    Star Wars 30th Anniversary RPG Announced!!!

    Wow! That's fantastic - great job there, Fantasy Flight. It's one of my favourite RPGs, and it's amazing just how much background was created in the RPG. WEG was given access to the Lucasfilm archives, and used a lot of the concept art in the game. They came up with names, and background for a...

    D&D 5E Flanking - Do you use it, and if so how?

    I use Flanking in the game I run. It didn't even cross my mind to not use it when I started running it, more as a holdover from 4E than anything else. We play on a grid, with figures and terrain, so it's fairly easy to adjudicate. What I have found is it doesn't seem to overpowered, at least...

    D&D 5E Inspiration: Exclusive, Group, or None

    I tend to be fairly generous with Inspiration, because if I don't I tend to forget it exists. If a player makes me laugh, says something particularly in character, does something extra-heroic or very fool hardy, works out a clue, or makes a good suggestion about what's going on then I tend to...

    D&D 5E Guns in your world, and in mine!

    In my campaign setting gunpowder comes from two sources - the old fashioned way, which doesn't make very good gunpowder, and tends to be expensive, or a form of semi stabilised Elemental matter, taken directly from the Elemental Chaos and Elemental planes. Thanks to an easily mastered ritual...

    D&D 5E Sandy Peterson's Cthulhu Mythos for 5E ??

    It's a Kickstarter I'd be falling over myself to pledge to. A 5E version of Peterson's Guide to the Mythos would be amazing! Getting the Cthulhu Wars miniatures as additional add ons would be the icing on the cake.I was sorely tempted to pledge to the Pathfinder one despite my general disdain...

    [UPDATED] What's Next For D&D? Live From Origins - Tomb of Annihilation

    A Dragon Turtle named after Gamera! :) They're doing their best to make me buy this. All we need now is some 5E rules for Kaiju.

    D&D 5E Best Healer?

    Played the Second one. I was amazed at how much healing he could put out. A one level dip into Life Cleric seems essential for any truly dedicated Healer. Also you get access to Bless, the best buff spell in the game, and Heavy Armour proficiency, which is great for a squishy Lore Bard.

    D&D 5E Best Healer?

    You missed Lore Bard on the Survey. Although not as good as the Life Cleric (the amount of Healing one those puts out can be ridiculous), getting the Magic Secrets at lvl 6 and taking Aura of Vitality, and Prayer of Healing really throws out a lot of Healing. Prayer of Healing always seems a...

    D&D 5E Tactics for dealing with Polearm Masters

    Use enemies with a longer reach. Ogres with Pikes, or giants, or whatever. The PC's got a 10 ft reach, use opponents with a 15 ft reach. Use a big, brutish sack of HP monster to absorb the AoO. Brutes in 4E were great for this kind of thing. Use something with max possible HP, maybe lower its...

    D&D 5E Feelings on Ranged Damage

    D&D has never been a One Shot/One Kill type of game. Cool as the idea of a Sniper taking out someone from a mile away with carefully placed shot is, it isn't something that D&D does well. My current group has both a Revised Ranger and a Rogue, and now they've hit 7th level, I've noticed a...

    Dragonlance [+] Why do you love Dragonlance?

    Dragons, lots and lots of Dragons. For a game called Dungeons and Dragons, there often is a distinct lack of Dragons, especially at the time when DL came out. Putting them front and centre in a series of Modules was great. Playing around with the basic tropes of the game. No Clerics, no Orcs...
