    General Ideas for other Orcish religions/cultures that are alternatives to the Gruumshite religion

    Waaaaaaayyy back in the day, back in the 2e era, I created a fair number of Faiths & Avatars-type entries for monstrous deities on usenet. This was exactly the course I took for the orc pantheon, that Luthic wasn't as evil as the rest of the pantheon, and was likely more a harsh LN than LE, and...

    5E Jeremy Crawford Discusses Details on Custom Origins

    What about the spell and magic item sections?

    General Baldur's Gate 3 Early Access

    I mean when you create a character, all the Origin characters are there, just not choosable for the moment.

    General Baldur's Gate 3 Early Access

    I doubt anyone under 40 will get what the Larry, Darryl, and Darryl joke was about in BG1...

    General Baldur's Gate 3 Early Access

    I'm guessing that gnomes are to be implemented relatively soon, while half-orcs and dragonborn are further off. I also assume more deities will likely be added later, especially the more prominent missing ones. Probably not the full list, but at enough to cover the major and better-known...

    General I'm reading the Forgotten Realms Novels- #101 Easy Betrayals by Richard Baker (Double Diamond Triangle 8)

    The Utter East is the area between Faerûn and Zakhara, basically the coastal area southeast of Durpar and Ulgarth (which are the southeasternmost parts of Faerûn proper) and due north of Zakhara. A large mountain range seperates the area from the southwestern areas of Kara-Tur like Tabot.

    General Baldur's Gate 3 Early Access

    From what Larian said ("We took the most popular choices in character creation, and recreated this"), it sounds (to me) like all choices in character creation. I imagine that any skew in the data towards the default would be because some people eager to play the game just changed the appearance...

    General Baldur's Gate 3 Early Access

    It's a human cleric (of Selune with Life domain) actually. You can see the race and class in the same picture Larian released.

    General Baldur's Gate 3 Early Access

    With it still in early access, they'll are probably still fine-tuning charisma based encounters and checks like that...

    General Baldur's Gate 3 Early Access

    Also, all the potential companions are in the middle of an extremely stressful situation, so its not surprising that everyone is on edge and not being polite and friendly immediately (on top of being for the most part evil, which Larian said would be the first ones available to playtest). The...

    General What's your favorite starter sandbox region?

    Every FR overall setting book usually has had pretty decent coverage for the region. Which is why 5e has been so frustrating for those who like the area...

    General What's your favorite starter sandbox region?

    Everyone is the protagonist in their own story! (But yeah, that should have been antagonist).

    5E Homebrew Giant Elites

    Good point, I was thinking diameter instead of radius. I'll change it appropriately.

    General What's your favorite starter sandbox region?

    I literally fired up the FR Gold Box games over the last few weeks and finished Pools of Darkness over the weekend. They're totally hack and slash, and of course with circa 1990 graphics, but I still love them anyway. They're a blast from a tactical standpoint, in a way few CRPGs have managed to...

    General What's your favorite starter sandbox region?

    My 2e campaigns were always Dalelands based. As you said, the Zhents are built-in protagonists, and there are plenty of varied places to explore, especially Yûlash and Myth Drannor. They would often spill over into Cormyr as well. All of which are reasons that I desperately want to see the...

    5E Homebrew Giant Elites

    Creatures within 20 feet of the point of the stomp can be knocked prone. Creatures within 10 feet can be restrained.

    5E Homebrew Giant Elites

    Then want will represent stone giants (with their toughness) and cloud giants (with their dual good/evil nature)?

    5E Homebrew Giant Elites

    Time for the Giant Emperor, the legendary and now-vacant office at the top of the giant hierarchy. Should a giant be so blessed by the giant deities that the office is resurrected, it would be an event of world-shaking importance. (Hopefully, Elemental Aura isn't too confusing and I was clear...

    5E Revisiting future product predictions (2021 and beyond)

    The introduction of VGtM mentioned monster types they were planning at that point to cover in future monster books, mentioning dragons, githyanki, fiends, and undead by name. MToF covered the githyanki and fiends, so we have (barring a change of plans in the meantime) at least monster books...
