    General Folkloric Magic?

    A friend of mine did a zine that covers real-world folk magic from the Americas. He uses it in low-magic games set in a version of the real world, but you might find it interesting. Other Magic https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/277801/Other-Magic

    Here's What's Available For Free RPG Day

    No store within an hours drive of me has participated in Free RPG Day in many years, unfortunately.

    5E strong smelling books

    One way to decrease the smell is to take a plastic container with a lid, put a layer of kitty litter in the bottom, open the book and put it in, and then put the lid on (something airtight is best). Leave it that way for a couple of weeks, periodically opening it up and flipping some of the...

    General What are the "dead settings" of D&D?

    My bet is that they all have active campaigns going on somewhere in the world.

    5E What would you like to see in 5e books?

    More classes, subclasses, and half-species (half-dwarves, for example). I'm not really in buying anything else for 5e.

    Critical Role PSA: You are not Matt Mercer

    I do, if some of the players are relatively new to rpgs. I talk about the difference between streaming "live play" and playing D&D in the real world. I tend to use Critical Role as an example, since it is the most popular one of its type. I make sure they understand that the players are...

    Kickstarter Is Losing Nearly Half It’s Staff

    I have done rpg projects through Kickstarter before. In fact, I'm getting ready to deliver on a ZineQuest project later this month. I have other products that I was planning on Kickstartering this summer, but I'm hesitant to do so now. A lot of people - including me - just aren't backing...

    Critical Role PSA: You are not Matt Mercer

    I manage expectations before I let someone join the campaign, and again during an all-group Session Zero. I specifically address this issue. That has always worked well for me.

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

    I played almost every edition of D&D from the Holmes Boxed Set to the 5e. The only one I skipped entirely was 4e. When it came out I sat down and read someone else's copy and promptly gave it back. I could tell that it wasn't something I ever wanted to play, and I haven't. I have watched...

    Why Do You Hate An RPG System?

    There are some systems that I dislike and don't want to play or GM, but I don't have an all-abiding hate for them. They just aren't ones I enjoy. Those include anything PbtA, FATE, 2d20, GMless systems in general, and most games that fall under the general "storygames" category.

    New internet rule

    Also... "Amazing" appears to just mean "I like it" these days.

    Zine Quest - What did you end up enjoying last year?

    Zine Quest 2 is coming up in February. I would be interested in hearing about which things you supported last year that ended up being your favorites. My favorites were "A Pound of Flesh" (for Mothership) and "Other Magic."

    5E How much money is D&D 5e actually making?

    It isn't unusual for DMs/GMs to be the primary purchasers of rpg books. Players will commonly buy dice, dice bags, and minis, but a lot of them don't go much beyond that. That has been the case for a really long time, if not right from the beginning.

    General WotC Asks What Makes YOU Play Dungeons and Dragons?

    I put in 52, as well. It asked one more question and then ended.

    6E What Improvements Would You Want with 6E?

    Less background textures/colors and slightly larger text in the print books would be a great thing for us old-timers.

    Best system for historical roleplaying?

    I use Call of Cthulhu / Basic Roleplaying for that. Mythras is in the same general family of games.
