    Mana, Shamans, and the Cultural Misappropriation behind Fantasy Terms

    That was not the argument.

    Hussar, honestly, do you view the lizard folk as evil or in a negative light?

    6E (+) New Edition Changes for Inclusivity (discuss possibilities)

    Yeah none of that really works for me. There are combinations that work, proficiencies need to be swapped out, skills need to be adopted. Anyways.

    6E (+) New Edition Changes for Inclusivity (discuss possibilities)

    That is fair. Out of interest - what class could we apply to Native Americans (north, meso and south) or for that matter the African tribes (mid and south) or the native Australasians? An answer could be - that the class has not been created as yet.

    6E (+) New Edition Changes for Inclusivity (discuss possibilities)

    @doctorbadwolf and I generally do not agree on most things when it comes to issues surrounding these types of discussion about D&D, but I do see his point here. The barbarian class for me is a little jarring - not because I think there is some sort of PC issue but it just feels like a loose...

    5E Anyone else just want a straight up Monster Manual II?

    Not interested really. Still have plenty of monsters to get through with MToF and VGtM Also I'm far more interested in getting the Expanded Monster Manuals as someone mentioned earlier in the thread.

    Mana, Shamans, and the Cultural Misappropriation behind Fantasy Terms

    I think if anything I have probably been guilty of not making shamans cool enough in the game, enough to make PCs worry about facing a goblin or orc shaman and their mysterious primal powers. If anything these discussions have inspired me to play up certain monsters. For me it is not so much...

    Mana, Shamans, and the Cultural Misappropriation behind Fantasy Terms

    I suppose you could apply slavery to what I said about but I was referring to the use of Samurai, Wu-Jen, Shamans....and other. Speaking about slavery, I do recall a thread here opening up discussion about how a slavery system would work or to that effect. So there certainly is interest for...

    Mana, Shamans, and the Cultural Misappropriation behind Fantasy Terms

    Aldarc as you well know not everyone identifies/defines things the same way or even places values on the same things. I have a friend who doesn't define himself by anyone culture or people, elevates science/facts/technology, places no value in religion and thinks anything within human history is...

    3E/3.5 Jewish magic items?

    Goodness, there is a whole slew of books here - The Targum Magazine, The Hittites...etc Very impressive, had never seen these before.

    Mana, Shamans, and the Cultural Misappropriation behind Fantasy Terms

    This seems an unnecessary process. How would you even remove it? By updating the errata page? Why not just include the Shaman class in the next book (along with the Psionic class) without the removal?

    Mana, Shamans, and the Cultural Misappropriation behind Fantasy Terms

    I have no issue with the INT boost. It is definitely not a hill I want to die on. I remember a Forgotten Realms book I read years ago - these knights got off their horses and the writer was portraying the PoV from the scout ("Aztec or Inca like-culture") that was watching them and he, the author...

    Mana, Shamans, and the Cultural Misappropriation behind Fantasy Terms

    To be fair, gladiators were not all Roman but were often silly little tribal warriors that were educated in weapons, armour, etiquette but mostly sexual performance (as per the true-to-fact show Spartacus) which allowed them to raise their INT from 8 to 10 with the bonus ASI. It's all very logical.

    Mana, Shamans, and the Cultural Misappropriation behind Fantasy Terms

    Apparently some D&D players identify themselves as fantasy tribesmen and go looking to see how they have been statted.

    Mana, Shamans, and the Cultural Misappropriation behind Fantasy Terms

    I will wait patiently for a Frank, Belgian or German to raise his/her hand about the INT. :rolleyes: Greeks had tribes, never seen a Greek complain either.

    3E/3.5 Jewish magic items?

    This sounds like a great source book!

    5E Making the classes more generic

    I see two suitable options for this: 1) Drop D&D in favour of a classless system; or 2) Play 2e's Skills and Powers or modify it for your 5e game

    5E Monks Suck

    Look Mistwell if you want us to take you seriously, it needs to be at least a series of videos, approximately 26 hours in length.

    Mana, Shamans, and the Cultural Misappropriation behind Fantasy Terms

    I'm not sure this specific example is about privilege. Firstly, we are talking about INT, the dump stat of D&D. Secondly, we are talking about INT on a "monster" where INT does not matter in the great scheme of things. Only the physical stats matter for To hit bonuses, Damage, Hit Points and AC...

    Mana, Shamans, and the Cultural Misappropriation behind Fantasy Terms

    Nope, make them 10 intelligence. I suspect, perhaps wrongly, that the reason for the intelligence dip of 8 was due to the tribesmen's lack of understanding of technology, not necessarily their inability to learn. I'm certainly not going to defend the 8, but like I said it is also not something...
