    General Do people like re-skinning?

    I'm pretty sure it's required that you re-color your monster if you add hit dice, add to damage, or change a property of an attack ;)

    General Who's your villain?

    Bargle. Con man, swindler, thief, murderer... and those are his better qualities. He is currently on the run, after having stolen the Black Opal Eye, and Fire Opal Eyes of Traldar for some (no doubt) nefarious purpose.

    OD&D Edition Experience: Did/Do you Play BECM/RC D&D? How Was/Is It?

    One of the older GaryCon panels, it was noted that the Expert Set was regarded by some as being more-advanced-than-Advanced D&D, I think, due to it expanding into areas like wilderness exploration and name-level keeps/temples/guild/tower building not as the endgame, with a minimum of rules for...

    General Old Campaign Worlds - What Have You Used And Why?

    I DM Mystara (and by extension, Blackmoor). Grew up with the setting, as it evolved. Nowadays, I've darkend things up a bit, bolting on elements from Eberron (warforged, dragonshards, dragon marks, artificers, magewrights, demonic possession of things as well as people) and thematic bits and...

    5E Terrible Titles for a Xanathar Follow-up

    No, no. Sequels have annoying punctuation tacked on to the end of the title: a * or ! or !! (probably all three in at least one case...)
