    5E Dragon+ Issue 33 out now!

    DDB are clearly under pretty strict guidelines about how they do anything with WotC material. If I had to guess, they are doing what WotC told them to do. But you could probably ask and find out. AD

    5E The New D&D Book: Tasha's Cauldron of Everything!

    For $1, I should also get a pdf. AD

    5E The New D&D Book: Tasha's Cauldron of Everything!

    So, I'm definitely not going to disagree that the differences between FR and GH are not stark enough from a marketing perspective to give GH any 'leverage' over, say, Dark Sun as an opportunity for WotC to explore something really different. I think they are very different settings in feel. But...

    5E Iggwilv/Tasha To Join Volo, Xanathar, and Mordenkainen? [UPDATED!]

    I am a big Greyhawk fan. And I really liked how they handled it in Saltmarsh. It's understandable that people have different opinions, but I suspect WotC is well aware that internet messageboard arguments are not necessarily a good gauge of the actual opinion of fandom as a whole. I don't know...

    5E Last Chance for Idle Q4 Product Speculation

    It's not very informative, but did you guys catch the hint dropped today? It's a discord thing, but here's an article that describes it: https://comicbook.com/gaming/news/dungeons-dragons-hideous-laughter-teaser/

    5E WotC Dungeons & Dragons 2020 Product Survey

    Hey, no worries about going on! I get that you're feeling pretty strongly about this as a prediction, and I-- unintentionally-- keep poking you by responding. And I will stop doing so! I'm a usual lurker on these messageboards because, in the end, while I enjoy in person debates, I don't so much...

    5E WotC Dungeons & Dragons 2020 Product Survey

    Well, the ebook version on DDB does largely retain the physical book format, with the art, covers, content etc. The 'listings' that let you search individual elements is a separate interface. The ebook just lacks the same page numbers and count. Kind of the same way a kindle or other ebook...

    5E WotC Dungeons & Dragons 2020 Product Survey

    Do you mean the tens of millions in video games? Because I'll buy that there are 10's of millions to be made there hypothetically, which is why I suspect they've started buying and setting up video game studios. But in the 'character and campaign management' space? Seems like for the tabletop...

    5E WotC Dungeons & Dragons 2020 Product Survey

    An interest, yes. That they wanted to create their own tools and start a new edition, no. It was a detailed survey about how we are playing the game and what tools we are using. It's information I'd want to know regardless of whether I was planning a new edition or deciding to make my own...

    5E WotC Dungeons & Dragons 2020 Product Survey

    That's all fair enough. Though I don't get the same impression from the survey at all. I guess we'll see! AD

    5E WotC Dungeons & Dragons 2020 Product Survey

    Yep. I think this is a completely reasonable concern and a good reason, as a consumer, to want a pdf. I was specifically responding to the idea that WotC is being completely clueless about the importance of digital mediums by not offering them. As an 'archival' copy, they make a lot of sense...

    5E WotC Dungeons & Dragons 2020 Product Survey

    Honestly? That's not a crazy take. PDF's are not the best form of digital medium anymore by a longshot. I find the DDB digital form to be much, much more useful. I can see why WotC doesn't feel a strong need to make them available. Note: I recognize there are other advantages of pdf's (e.g...

    5E WotC Dungeons & Dragons 2020 Product Survey

    Maybe. But it's not clear to me that trying to become a software company is the smoothest route to the most money. Nor do I have any idea what their markets look like right now. But of course that's about as far as we can go with this discussion given the information available. AD

    5E WotC Dungeons & Dragons 2020 Product Survey

    Really not sure why we think their asking about digital tools and VTT means they'd want to do it themselves. It's in their interest to know what their user base wants to keep playing, and they can easily achieve this through existing partnerships. DDB appears to be enormously popular and has...

    5E WotC Dungeons & Dragons 2020 Product Survey

    While this is a totally reasonable concern, my experiences have tended to the opposite. Without the tools, players are flipping through books, looking ups spells, rules, etc., causing a general slow down. Often, I'm the one who ends up looking things up for them (which is much faster with the...

    5E How should be the future Oriental Adventures.

    I don't disagree with you. But something I've learned over the years is that things that are obvious to me (because of the circles I run in) are often not obvious to others outside my circles. And I've certainly been guilty of not knowing things that, in retrospect, were pretty obvious. I'll...

    5E How should be the future Oriental Adventures.

    I believe the term simply means 'eastern'. However, my understanding is that the reason it has gone out of favor is that the term has historically been associated with a lot of racist tropes. So it carries a lot of baggage. And, since it's not all that descriptive anyway and it tends to lump a...

    5E June Unearthed Arcana?

    Well, if we presume that psionics isn't in the fall book, there's always a possibility we'll see another try in that arena in the next few months. (I wouldn't expect it much sooner than that, as I suspect they'll be trying a new approach and want to test it internally first). AD

    5E 'The Thing' Inspired Rime of the Frostmaiden Has Player Secrets [Updated]

    Worth just watching this video if you are interested: It's a card you can draw at character creation. If you like it you keep it. If you don't you can take another. I don't get the impression it's a 'traitor mechanic' so much as a way to add some interesting twists to character interactions...
