    Pledge money and Colin McComb will say sorry for writing the Complete Book of Elves

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/torment-tides-of-numenera Isn't that the best stretch goal for a video game ever? I mean, as a roleplayer, you were going to kickstart Torment: Tales of Numenera anyway, right? Being in the spirit of Planescape:Torment, using Monte Cook's setting (who...

    Bring back the exposed boots on the monsters!

    Seriously, do you remember the Dryad debacle? A good-looking woman able to wear boots, redesigned into a four-legged tree...thing without feet? Do you remember when gnomes suddenly had to wear robes, hiding their 14-holer badger-stompers (TM)? When belts suddenly became trousers or skirts...

    Why is there no talk about the Castle Keepers Guide preview?

    Sorry if this belongs into another forum, i really wasn't sure were to put it. But... isn't this news? I mean, it is news to me. And when i say news, i mean i can't stop laughing. You can check out the RPG.net thread here, if you want. Let me just use one thing to bring you up to speed...

    Describe how you played RPGs "back then" using music videos

    Remember when you were under 20, playing all-nighters with your friends? Incoherent stories that consisted of 90% atmosphere, 8% cigarette smoke and 2% logic? I always try to describe to my friends how it was to play RPGs back then - and fail. Because some things cannot be expressed using...

    [Star Wars] Somebody bought the license

    See RPG.net thread here. The short version: Mongoose made a bid for it and lost to somebody else. They do not want to say who, but it seems that the deal is finished. I wonder who had the money to buy all those licenses (RPG, minis etc.). I hope it's not Paizo - they are an awesome company...

    Enough is enough: Let's do something about Driizzt do'Urden

    We all know him, the plague of the campaign, curse of the DM, bleach of the brain. Ever thince Elminster/Driizzt slashfic became all the rage on the interwebs, countless referees have gaped in wordless horror as the new guy pulled out a character sheet with the words "drow", "ranger"...

    [Essentials] What's left?

    I just read the Essentials Dice Fistshaking Thread, and it made me so sad. I fear there is nothing left of the Essentials line to get riled up over. :.-( Did i miss something? If not, Wotc, i beg you, could you expand the line to, say, 15 products? Perhaps two adventures with flimsy covers, a...

    [Dark Sun] [Spoilertastic] Sorcerer Kings

    I´m one of those guys who loves the backstory of Athas - Rajaat, Boris et. al. will definitely pop up in my campaign. Its history is one of the greatest strenght of the world under the Dark Sun, even if it doesn´t pop up directly in a campaign. Especially cool are the sorcerer kings living or...

    What editions are preferred by people who vote in polls?

    Okay, recently this thread stirred up a lot of stew. But it also made me curious: how many people who vote in polls about 3e or 4e are playing those editions, respectively? And how many people who play 3e or 4e never vote in polls? Really interested how the poll will turn out.

    Another thing you have to love about DDI...

    ... is that this multitude of NPC stats streaming out of Wotc every month in all those books and magazines isn´t going to be wasted. Remember the dark times of 3.x (insert smiley here)? Where courageous people on ENworld created an index for finding statblocks in Eberron books? I used that list...

    Mearls talks about his inspiration for the 4e classes

    Over at RPG.net, someone started a thread for creating a "Appendix N - suggested reading" for 4e. Some people used that as an incentive to post about what they think can inspire you for 4e and what they think has inspired 4e. In post #11, Mearls talks about his inspiration for designing the 4e...

    [Forked Thread: How Important is Magic..?] 5 things you need to know

    Forked from: How Important is Magic to Dungeons and Dragons? - Third Edition vs Fourth Edition Okay, in one of the most off-topic-wandering threads of all time, we find little gems like this about how playing video games is somehow a boon for playing 4e (while earlier editions where based so...

    [DDI] Did i mend it with a touch?

    Remember when the revamped Compendium was unveiled, and lots of steam was blown off because it was slow and used that crappy foto gallery method of showing entries? I was angry because of that, and because tabbed browsing was broken. Even sent Wotc an e-mail - and got an automatic return...

    [Lets choose] the ENworld un-word of 2008

    You know, i actually have no idea if something like that even exists beyond Germany, but over here a jury decides every year which word has earned the title Unwort / un-word / non-word etc. Well, what are the criteria? The word: - has been used far too much - in a way that was "sachlich grob...

    [Proposal] Fluffster Manual 2 - Content Edition

    DDI surprised me, i admit it. I was prepared for Dungeon and Dragon goodness, but not for this unstoppable flood of premium content. Trying to find monsters for my 4e oneshot, i checked the "undead" group in the Compendium and hit "search". 1400+ hits. So, why do i need MM2? I´m standing...

    Forked Thread: [Maybe this is where the magic went:] To the magic shop

    Now, as is SOP these days, the innocent question "why are magic items IMHO less interesting now than back then?" turned into "my edition did that better than your edition, which is all about combat!!1!" Part of these threads is often one of the enemies of fantastic adventuring (or so it...

    So the world is in balance again...

    ... because Razz is back, watching the (begin cite) "4rons" (end cite) on this board while laughing. And i prefer that. See, i was pretty active on Planet AD&D back in the day, and you have to have at least one poster who takes hate and bile to entirely new levels. It somehow feels right to me...

    3E/3.5 [4e bits in 3.5 report] Skill Challenges

    So, i run an online game every Thursday using Maptool and Skype, set in the FR Moonsea region. I have two players, who are both The Dark Eye veterans and heavily into roleplay - some sessions see no combat at all. It´s a gestalt campaign - Dwarven Cleric/Knight and Moon-Elven Scout/Warmage, and...

    Tracking time in the dungeon

    I´m still prepping my far-too-large Undermountain campaign, and have been thinking about time-tracking lately. Now, i´m normally not somebody who insists on tracking minutiae like food, torches, long-term spell durations and stuff like that: I simply wing it. However, for a real dungeon...

    Do i need Expedition to Undermountain?

    Well, in this thread , i searched for a simple way to hyperlink the scanned maps from the Undermountain boxed set to the relevant room information. I decided to use Microsoft Onenote to do the linking and describing, forgetting about stats and rules during this phase of my campaign preparation...
