    5E Map of the Great Wheel Cosmology

    Greetings! Even though in our group we have long since moved on from AD&D 2e, we still use that edition's cosmology as our default, as I understand several other groups do as well. I made this thing (which is an update of a previous one I did a couple of years ago, posted around here somewhere)...

    DMs Guild 5e OGL/DMs Guild FAQ from DriveThrough's Scott Holden

    Scott Holden, from DriveThroughRPG (who are also partners with Wizards in the DMs Guild), sent the following email yesterday to all publishers, clearing some doubts regarding what you can publish under each licence and how exactly they are different. I thought it was a pretty good summary of...

    Petition to Name Element 117 "Octarine", in honour of Sir Terry Pratchett

    Link to the Petition A petition has been set up in Change.org to request the International Union for Applied Chemistry that the recently confirmed Element 117 be named "Octarine", in homage of the late Sir Terry Pratchett and his Discworld series. I have no idea if these things actually work...

    What do you put on a hot-dog?

    A most crucial discussion is what should we put or avoid from putting on a hot-dog. Yogurt seems an impopular choice, for example, but I could be wrong. I mean, once I was offered juice made from clams and apple, so anything could happen. What do you usually put on them? For me, as a proper...

    David Chart Steps Down as Ars Magica 5e Line Editor

    David Chart has now stepped down as line editor for the game, to whom I have nothing but respect and gratitude for his amazing -and truly monumental- work. Here's his parting message sent to the BerkList this morning, which I take the liberty of replicating here: My very best of wishes to...

    Contingency Measures Against Star Wars Spoilers

    Have any of you been in the need of engaging contingency measures to avoid getting spoiled before watching Star Wars? In this day and age, not watching something the very next day it's released and then logging into any social network feels like a game of Minesweeper in which all boxes are 8s...

    5E How many fans want a 5e Wardrobe?

    I've been reading through the equipment and items chapters of 5e, and I still can't find ruling on wardrobes. I feel like the devs have really dropped the ball as far as furniture goes in the current edition. Would you like the wardrobe being added to 5e in future supplements? Even a UE...

    Edition Aroma: Which one smells the best?

    We all know smell is a critical part of nerdom; MTG boosters have some kind of addictive gas that hooks you on the scent so you have to buy more, for example. This happens with D&D editions, too, each one having its own characteristic smell, from the "this has gone through way too many hands"...

    Boss Monster [Card game]

    A few weeks ago I found Boss Monster by accident at a videogame store, and last week I finally got to try it out. BM is a non-collectible card game for 2 to 4 players by Brotherwise Games, themed after classic side-scrolling games like Castlevania and retro-RPGs, in which you play the role of a...

    5E Polymorph into Non-Beasts

    In the process of moving from Pathfinder to 5e, one of the players has asked me about using the Polymorph spell to include non-beasts (he was fond of Form of the Dragon in PF). Just expanding the spell to include other types of creatures seems deceptively tempting, but I'm not sure if I'd be...

    5E Knock Unconscious and Massive Damage

    Last weekend I ran into a problem: The party's rogue wanted to knock people out quick and assuredly by using his Assassinate feature to both sneak attack and auto-crit, in order to make sure he reduced the victims down to 0. However, this often meant he would deal twice the target's HP in...

    5E Lord Cupcake's Will

    Page 36 of the 5e DMG reads: "Travok and Kairon don't want to undertake a quest for Lord Cupcake" What's with these uppity heroes dismissing quests from Lord Cupcake? Would have they done the same if Duke Smoothy or Count Hors d'Oeuvres had been involved? I think not. The biggest question...

    [Boardgame] Republic of Rome

    Has anyone else played this game? Republic of Rome is a boardgame that puts up to 6 players in control of a political faction of Republican Rome. Through these factions, players attract and manipulate senators (as well as their retinues) which in turn are used to run the Republic, be it by...

    5E Recreating High-level Pathfinder characters in 5e

    Last saturday, players of the current Planescape campaign I'm running with Pathfinder asked about the posibility of changing over to 5e. I told them that, even though I really like 5e, it might prove to be complicated (they are all 16th level) and that their characters might have to endure...

    5E The Mysterious 8th Ray

    Reading the description of Prismatic Spray in 5e's PHB I noticed the text mentions eight rays, but only describes seven, leaving the last for rerolling. Now, this could mean two things: A typo, or the much more likely scenario that there's a hidden 8th ray someone at WotC doesn't want us to...

    PF1E Planescape Sheet for Pathfinder

    I have just uploaded Planescape Sheet for Pathfinder to the downloads area. Here's an expansion sheet for the standard Pathfinder Character Sheet (also works with both D&D 3e and D&D 3.5, no conversion required) I've made for my party, which includes some things which I thought would minimize...

    What are you currently playing?

    Which RPGs are currently enjoying/taking/plundering/devouring your time and attention? Myself, I'm currently DMing two things: -A high-level Planescape campaign using Pathfinder, about six former-adventurers who decided to start their own "problem-solving" company in Sigil. Started in late...

    2E Map of the AD&D 2e Cosmology

    Well met! A while ago I created this map of the AD&D 2e multiverse that attempts to combine both the stuff from Planescape and Spelljammer into the same picture. It's a relationship diagram rather than physical map, intended more to show how everything connects than where exactly everything is...

    The Tale of an Industrious Rogue (updated 3-12-2014)

    Well met! Between 2009 and 2012, I ran a Pathfinder campaign set in a slightly-altered version of Golarion for my long-standing group of 5 players. Though for the first few months it was a fun but nothing out of the ordinary game, at a very specific point it took a turn for the unexpected...
