    D&D (2024) Do you plan to adopt D&D5.5One2024Redux?

    One thing I like to do to speed up these lengthy session zeros is simply use the rules that are printed in the books.

    is the roll and keep system copyrighted?

    Lots of potential customers not buying the product because it's a rip-off of someone else's work. Reputational damage for future projects.

    is the roll and keep system copyrighted?

    Whether it's legally actionable or not, you might also consider how perceptions of plagiarism could influence how your work is received in the marketplace.

    D&D (2024) Do you plan to adopt D&D5.5One2024Redux?

    You have met them. You're meeting them right now! 'Hello fellow sailor, please can I have a lift to the next port? No, I understand, as you're doing me a favour I don't mind if we don't head off til tomorrow. Of course I'll help out on the way.'

    I might be French or German. Which nationality am I?

    "The term 'GNS' is moronic and annoying" – well this should be an interesting interview

    I don't think this is true. This is a rule of law question. The law should treat everyone equally. To pull an example entirely out of thin air, if someone appears to have committed certain crimes, they should face trial and sentencing like everyone else, even if (hypothetically) they were a past...

    "The term 'GNS' is moronic and annoying" – well this should be an interesting interview

    'System doesn't matter but the games you like are vastly inferior for mechanical reasons'.

    D&D (2024) Do you plan to adopt D&D5.5One2024Redux?

    The things I like are necessary and understandable abstractions that make the game more fun. The things you like are ridiculous absurdities that make the game ultimately hollow and unenjoyable. 😉

    D&D (2024) Do you plan to adopt D&D5.5One2024Redux?

    I agree, it's a character choice that neatly expresses things about the PC's background and personality. 'Oh you can use everything' is just lazy design.

    What were the chances that her sister would be in that bar? One in a million? Sounds very unrealistic to me. 😉

    D&D (2024) Do you plan to adopt D&D5.5One2024Redux?

    Can't you make exactly the same argument about e.g. IC discussions between the PCs? No chance of failure so you just skip over it?

    Clearly we both have weak-ass permissive GMs!

    D&D (2024) Do you plan to adopt D&D5.5One2024Redux?

    I once got recognised in a foreign country by someone I'd never met, and who'd never met me, and we had no interaction on the day, but he knew my brother, saw the resemblance, then bumped into my parents (who also don't know him) when he was back home and said 'hey you look like soviet's...

    What makes an TTRPG a "Narrative Game" (Daggerheart Discussion)

    I'm following two threads at the moment. This one is (lately) about how narrativism doesn't really exist and players of D&D 5e are just as empowered to drive the story. The other one is about how background traits in D&D 5e are terrible because they give players the ability to fiat content...

    What Part Does the Role Play in the Role-Playing Game?

    Roleplaying is all about emoting while staying within the anticipated lines of the module and having the outcome of your actions and dice rolls subject to a veto by the GM.

    D&D (2024) Do you plan to adopt D&D5.5One2024Redux?

    Well, I don't think that 5e is unequivocal about anything. But aside from that, no, I think that the background traits themselves are a marker on the 'non-GM dominance' side of the ledger, albeit a fairly lonely one.

    D&D (2024) Do you plan to adopt D&D5.5One2024Redux?

    Yes, if it's rude to say that those who don't allow certain uses lack the imagination to think of a justification, it's also rude to say that those who do allow such uses have implausible/nonsensical gameworlds.
