    5E Meet Robin Hood, Outlaw of Sherwood Forest

    Just quoting what the game says. Like it or not, Robin Hood was one of the inspirations for the ranger class. The fact that the class has spells is a (misguided) attempt to duplicate Aragorn, who Also didn't have spells. IMHO, rangers should be spell-less, with a few class features to justify...

    5E Meet Robin Hood, Outlaw of Sherwood Forest

    This from the AD&D2e Players Handbook: "The ranger is a hunter and woodsman who lives by not only his sword, but also his wits. Robin Hood, Orion, Jack the Giant Killer and the huntresses of Diana are examples of rangers from history and legend."

    5E Meet Robin Hood, Outlaw of Sherwood Forest

    One problem with the Ranger in 5e.. No real spell-less option

    5E Meet Robin Hood, Outlaw of Sherwood Forest

    Curious.. which rendition of Sharpshooter did you use for this? I'm a little surprised that you didn't go with a Ranger build for Robin Hood. If there's one historical character that screams "Ranger", it's Robin Hood! Even as a fighter, I notice he doesn't have the Archery fighting style; or...

    5E Epic Monsters: Lucifer (1 of 3), Falling Angel

    (Getting my seminarian hat on) Lucifer would be best represented as a kind of super-Solar, well beyond the abilities of a typical angel. He was the highest created being, but still a creation, no where near the Creator. Michael would have been the 2nd highest, pretty close to Lucifer but not...

    OSR Played It Review of Old-School Essentials Using D&D ‘s The Lost City

    I haven't had a chance to look into this as much as I'd like. Is it true that MU/Cleric spells and such are in a separate book? I can see putting AD&D-ish stuff and other non-BX classes and adaptations into supplements; but putting spells for "basic" classes into separate books seems too much...

    UA Unearthed Arcana Subclasses Part III: Artificer, Druid, and Ranger

    Wow, finally a decent UA again! I can totally see these in action. If I had an armorer, I don't know that I'd even want to MC into anything else. The Druid and Ranger options are cool too. Way to go, WotC! Now just waiting for XgtE 2!

    General The D&D Series Has Arrived

    I'm 90% sure that Someone will come out with a Savage Worlds Witcher game. Everything is coming up SW nowadays.

    General The D&D Series Has Arrived

    Would signs be some form of cantrip maybe? Not sure how the potions figure in..

    General The D&D Series Has Arrived

    I'm not super-familiar with the books; but I understand that Ciri becomes a witcher of sorts. There has been discussion on some forums that Geralt would have made a good ranger, or that the Witcher would be a good replacement for the Ranger class. I think Geralt had some wonky abilities that...

    5E Mythological Figures: Hercules

    I'm not sure Herc was really a barbarian. He only "raged" when he was driven insane. By that standard Anyone could be a barbarian. I definitely see him as a/the iconic Champion. Maybe with some ranger thrown in, but not sure what/who would be his favored foe/enemy. RAW his strength would be...

    5E Mythological Figures: Imhotep

    I wonder if he'd be a good candidate for an Arcana cleric. Especially the Mummy version..lol

    5E Mythological Figures: Imhotep

    True, but he was the royal "Magi"/vizier/architect/advisor. In Pharoanic Egypt, he would have had to at least give lip service. Politics..

    5E Mythological Figures: Imhotep

    Curious.. as a cleric, who would have been Imhotep's deity? Ra? Osiris? Who would have been the main deity of healing? Or if he was a knowledge cleric, maybe Thoth?

    UA New Unearthed Arcana: Psionics!

    Dude.. This is a 5e thread. Stop pushing Pathfinder, already

    UA New Unearthed Arcana: Psionics!

    Omg thank you!! Wow, I didn't even know these existed. So are these considered on the level of UA, or just theorycraft by Mearls? Some of these are sweet!

    UA New Unearthed Arcana: Psionics!

    The more I think about it, the more I think Psion is more suitable for a Sorcerous Origin than an Arcane Tradition. Sorcerers have no need of spell books, and metamagic can be applied to psionic "spells" as easily as to arcane ones. I can seen Psion developing similarly to the Divine Soul. I...

    UA New Unearthed Arcana: Psionics!

    I'm kind of torn about this, in 3 ways: 1. The relegation of psionics to being basically another school of arcane magic is a huge (over)simplification of psionics in general. That said, I can see the attractiveness of Not having to manage a separate wonky psionics sub-system. And there are...

    5E Mythological Figures: General George Washington

    Hey all, I gotta say it, Washington was not a myth. I'm a huge history geek, and my wife is (legally) a descendant of ol' George. A few things: 1. The teeth weren't wood, they were ivory. Animal rights weren't big back then 2. He did indeed free his slaves upon his death. He waited till...

    PF2E Complexity vs. Depth -- A Look Inside Pathfinder 2nd Edition

    I played a lot of 3x back in the day, and PF by extension (during the 4e Age of Darkness). I get why so many hated all of PF's "feat bloat" and other complexities. It seems like PF2 has ramped up a lot of that by turning All class and racial features into feats. I know, I know, it "makes...
