    General D&D Movie Moves Forward With Deal With Former Marvel Exec Jeremy Latcham

    Interesting theory on potential casting.

    WotC Which releases do you own?

    The only physical book on the list I don't own (or have on order) is the Acquisitions Inc one. The core concept of that book is hugely unappealing to me.

    Critical Role PSA: You are not Matt Mercer

    I am not Matt Mercer, but my hair is starting to resemble his thanks to lockdown (only far less glorious, sadly).

    2020 Pogre's Miniatures and Models - Undead Minotaur Reaper Black Bones

    I'm busy printing a some ruined versions of the same houses. Yours looks great. Figured I could use them for D&D (Thundertree?) as well as Frostgrave.

    5E Which three topics do you most want to receive official (WotC) treatment?

    FR Campaign Setting book or boxed set. Manual of the Planes A new book focused on kingdom / stronghold building and ongoing play, together with some new mass battle rules.

    Annual RPG and Games Budget?

    I don't have any other particularly expensive hobbies so don't set a budget limit for games and spend a fair amount across the year on RPGs, boardgames, minis, terrain, convention attendance and the like. The restricting factor is more to do with how many unpainted minis and unplayed games are...

    Anybody care for an alternative to World of Darkness?

    Prior to the White Wolf games, we used to play Nightlife. I remember enjoying it at the time, but I'm not sure how well it would hold up now if I was to revisit it. Another (more current) option is Liminal.

    5E Would you let your player choose their magic items they get?

    Oh I like this. I'm runnning LMoP right now and think I'll add a similar reward to boost the lacklustre climax.

    5E Would you let your player choose their magic items they get?

    But if I let them pick, how on earth would I screw them over by doling out cursed items... :unsure: ;)

    Onward: A D&D Movie for Kids

    I'd read some mixed reviews, but watched this with the family yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. I may be biased as there are so many nods to TTRPGs and fantasy tropes in general, but that aside, I though it was another quality effort from Pixar.

    General Comic Relief Plays D&D

    The phrase "herding cats" springs to mind...

    General Dyson Logos style digital “pen”

    That's amazing. I want.

    General Comic Relief Plays D&D

    Absolutely agreed. If there's any comparative lack of success in the UK then that has to be, at least partly, due to the absence of any meaningful community engagement over here. WOTC's convention attendance is surprisingly limited given their market share. Gencon and Origins are noticeably...

    D&D Adventure Generator Using Talisman the Board Game

    Man, I love Talisman. Objectively it's not the greatest boardgame, but there's just something about the sheer randomness of it that makes for fun stories. It greatly benefits from some house rules to speed up play though. Interesting idea to use the cards for inspiration for adventure and...

    General Joe Manganiello's D&D Campaign Includes a Game of Thrones Creator & Vince Vaughn

    Lots of assumptions being made in this thread. Joe's home game has certainly included both male and female gamers - as mentioned by his wife: It's good to see the hobby get positive press. Celebs playing D&D is no longer a new thing, but it's cool to see details of some famous faces playing...

    Atanakar's Miniature Gallery

    Really nice. Kudos! I especially like the colour scheme of the Concord Army. The base is a great contrast and makes the models pop.

    Voice Acting in Your Tabletop RPGs: How Much/Little?

    I'm absolutely dreadful at trying to pull off an accent - in general I mean, not necessarily just at the table. Not something I have a shred of aptitude for. Nobody wants to hear that. I will to speak quite differently from character to character in terms of language and vocabulary, and am...

    5E Which current D&D settings have you used outside the published adventures?

    4E Edition Experience - Did/Do You Play 4th Edition D&D? How Was/Is it?

    This. So much this. My old grognard bones still haven't fully embraced these new fangled races that 4e introduced. Bah! I remember when all this was fields... At the time, the changes to the races and FR lore were definitely contributing factors that prevented me from connecting with this...

    4E Edition Experience - Did/Do You Play 4th Edition D&D? How Was/Is it?

    4e was my reintroduction to D&D after a hiatus of more than a decade. I selected 'Played it, and didn't like it' but I'm not saying it's a bad game. I only played a single session and it didn't click - it felt less like an RPG and more like a dungeon crawl boardgame. Admittedly, the session...
