    5E strong smelling books

    Admittedly I haven’t kept it open that whole time but yeah, it still smells so much I literally can’t read it.

    5E strong smelling books

    I’ve had the BG book since it was first released so like a year ago?

    5E strong smelling books

    Just an update: my BG and Wildemount books still reek. My Theros book smells a little bit but nowhere near as bad. My newest book, Rime of the Frostmaiden, doesn’t smell at all. I’m also fairly certain it’s the glue in the bindings, not the ink. I wonder if maybe there’s been a bit of an...

    5E Running Rime of the Frost Maiden

    Check out his thoughts on Velynne Harpell. He pointed out there’s a section in the adventure where she gets plot armor and can’t be killed due to her importance to the adventure. He also comments on the ridiculousness of expecting players not to immediately attack an obvious necromancer.

    5E Miniature Collecting and Use

    I’m so addicted I splurged on a chardalyn dragon only to find out it was going to cost me more in shipping than the dragon itself cost to get it here to NZ. I had it sent to my parents in the US instead and now I have to figure out how I can get it here without it costing me an arm and a leg. I...

    5E Running Rime of the Frost Maiden

    I’m finding it a bit hard to follow due to the format, but he’s been going on at length about the good parts and the bad parts on Twitter. I’m hoping he’ll at least compile his thoughts in an article, even if he doesn’t do a full-on remix.

    5E A brief rant about Rime of the Frost Maiden, farming, logistics, and ecology

    I think that’s because they want it to double as an Icewind Dale campaign setting as well as an adventure, so they’ve written locations to be as generic as possible so people can use them in their own adventures with minimal effort if they want to. It tracks with previous 5e adventures. They’re...

    5E Curse of Strahd Revamped First Look & Unboxing

    Well, I bit the bullet and preordered this box set. I also bought the two new non-random minis sets that go with it. Will probably chuck ‘em in the box to keep everything together.

    General Question on map/ begining of Curse of Strahd

    While I quite like the idea that Strahd being a vampire is a mystery, I think it would only work for a group of players who aren’t already familiar with the story. My players all know that Strahd is a vampire, so they’d really have to try hard not to metagame if I were to try and make his...

    5E A brief rant about Rime of the Frost Maiden, farming, logistics, and ecology

    Here's what it says: However, the sacrifices only occur once a month on the night of the new moon. So they're not nightly occurrences. And I don't think it would be much of a stretch to think that some people don't survive the night.

    5E Miniature Collecting and Use

    Yes, I love my purple worm! I repainted the black underside on mine yellow to match the illustration in the 3.5e MM.

    5E Miniature Collecting and Use

    Yeah, the early WizKids sets especially had some weird scales - Huge giants on Large bases, for instance. And in the Elemental Evil set, two of the elementals were Large size, but the other two were Medium (even though their sculpts matched the Large-size versions in the MM). The first ogre was...

    5E A brief rant about Rime of the Frost Maiden, farming, logistics, and ecology

    Except that they received at least one set of playtest feedback pointing out to them that it was implausible, and yet they chose to ignore that feedback. (I happen to know that there are times where they have changed course due to playtest feedback - for instance, TOA was originally going to...

    5E Miniature Collecting and Use

    I have way too many miniatures, and I keep buying more every time they release a new set. I like to get all the ones I like, although some are simply too expensive to justify buying on the singles market (like most dragons and things like beholders and such). That said, I hardly ever use them...

    5E Curse of Strahd Revamped First Look & Unboxing

    The cards look like they might be bigger as well. The DM screen art is nice. The info on the inside looks to be mostly the same as what’s on the standard DM screen, which is fine. It’s very tempting to get this set!

    5E Curse of Strahd Revamped First Look & Unboxing

    Is this Tarokka deck better than the one GF9 put out when CoS was first released? I’ve got that deck, as well as the original hardcover, so I’m wondering if it’s worth it to get this version just for some extras, like the DM screen, and the convenience of multiple booklets?

    5E A brief rant about Rime of the Frost Maiden, farming, logistics, and ecology

    This. These sorts of errors and oversights were more understandable / forgivable when WotC was spitting books out every month. Now they have way more time to work on them and fine tune them. They make a big deal out of quality over quantity, but it doesn’t always show. I love 5e, and I think...
