    General WotC’s Official Announcement About Diversity, Races, and D&D

    I'm out. Fuck WotC. Enough of the revisionist history woke left bullshit.

    RPG Sales for Black Lives Matter

    Maybe because for previous charity drives, people were able to confirm that the charity they thought they were donating to was the one that actually received the money? The other two bundles (NAACP LDF and NPAP) aren't in question. The description of the BLM Foundation in the bundle doesn't...

    RPG Sales for Black Lives Matter

    Doesn't change my question - which BLM are these donations going to? Donators need to know if their money is going where they think it is going. The NAACP LDF and NPAP charities are straightforward - there is only one of each of them.

    5E WotC's Jeremy Crawford on D&D Races Going Forward

    But is portraying orcs differently because there is a different evil race in Eberron? Because that is almost always the case in any fantasy - there has to be some type of existential threat to the protagonists. I would look to the portrayal of hobgoblins in Kingdoms of Kalamar because it is...

    5E WotC's Jeremy Crawford on D&D Races Going Forward

    The issue isn't the perception of injustice or not. The issue is the real-world problem of being impossible to separate objective injustice from moral relativism that forms the basis of opinion for authors writing books, screenplays, whatever. This is especially difficult in the case of D&D...

    RPG Sales for Black Lives Matter

    So - I have to ask. The description on DriveThruRPG states "Black Lives Matter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose missi... " This is patently false. Black...

    RPG Sales for Black Lives Matter

    If it feels like a scam, it probably is. Trust your gut instinct. The best thing to do is to try and find local charities and donate to them. Usually, but not always, the money stays closer to home and actually gets to where you intended to go. Always check what they actually do with...

    General The 2e Setting Explosion: Spelljammer v. Athas, and the Multiverse as Single Settting (Part 3)

    When it comes to different cosmologies, I ascribe to the "there is really only one cosmology - these are different descriptions of the same thing seen through the lens of a different frame of reference.". That is, people can do the equivalent of a mathematical transform to go between each of the...

    General The 2e Setting Explosion: Spelljammer v. Athas, and the Multiverse as Single Settting (Part 3)

    The reason for the crossovers served a purpose at the time. When d20 came out, it should have been easy to hop across worlds. In fact, I've done a D&D/Spycraft 1e crossover. 5e should make it easy as well. It seems that it was easier to do the crossovers back then when the different settings...

    General The 2e Setting Explosion: Spelljammer v. Athas, and the Multiverse as Single Settting (Part 3)

    There is so much that is wrong with this thread - and it feels so right... Other than Planescape which I feel was a terrible way to open up the planes to high level adventures (if you have to be high level to travel there, why can the local version in Sigil not have to be?), the ability to...

    5E What setting would you like for an adventure?

    This. I liked the expansion of the information on the planes via Planescape, but all of the "we're just like the primes but only we're here and in factions" was ridiculous. And I hated the Planescape artwork. Sorry not sorry.

    5E Sing to me of Box Sets, what cool things have been in them, what cool things do you want in them?

    See - that's where I'd move hardbacks to stack them flat on top of the row of books to make room for boxed sets.

    5E Sing to me of Box Sets, what cool things have been in them, what cool things do you want in them?

    If you have the means, I highly recommend getting the old FR Interactive Atlas and its updates (some of the maps in Update 3 actually break the maps and need to be backed out). Available on Ebay, used for like $150. Its ugly, and many of the smaller maps linked into it need the original...

    5E What setting would you like for an adventure?

    None of the above. If you are doing a big adventure book like Curse of Strahd, it should be something that can be used in any campaign setting, since WotC isn't fully supporting any of their legacy or current campaign settings. How about an adventure where terrain or environment is more...

    5E Sing to me of Box Sets, what cool things have been in them, what cool things do you want in them?

    Difficult to store? They're like any other book. Stand on end in between other books. Done. Destroyed or damaged? Are you stacking box on top of box or letting a pet play with them? I've got boxed sets dating back to the Basic D&D purpleish box and they are all at least in fair shape - a...

    5E WotC Shares Theros Table of Contents

    Yep, just one more in a long line of 5e products I could care less about.

    5E Sing to me of Box Sets, what cool things have been in them, what cool things do you want in them?

    City of Greyhawk. 1e AD&D City System boxed set (this is actually the City of Waterdeep, and far more gigantic maps than the 2e boxed set). If not limiting ourselves to D&D - there have been great boxed sets for many different TTRPGs - TORG, Twilight:2000, Paranoia, Ghostbusters, just to name...

    5E Are there actions not covered under a skill?

    I look at at from a modern-day standpoint. Is it something that you learned by doing? Did someone teach you? Did you read about it and learn it? 1. Laying bricks = skill. 2. Hunting = skill. 3. Identifying medicinal plants = skill. 4. Picking your nose = not a skill (although most children...

    5E Mike Mearls is back on the D&D RPG Team

    A reasonable person (i.e. anyone who actually works in a corporate environment) is contacting their Legal department and doing nothing else to such an email - as it sits there burning up their inbox. Sending it to his private email and expecting them to do something from a corporate...
