    Bending the wall of fire

    Circle and straight line only? Can a wall of fire have some bend to it?

    Yes Virginia, there is a Great Cthulhu

    Something I like to occasionally share at this special time of year. Dear Editor-     I am 8 years old.  Some of my little friends say there is no Great Cthulhu.  Papa says, "If you see it on Alt.Horror.Cthulhu, it's so," Please tell me the truth, is there a Great Cthulhu who will rise...

    Buff Polymorph

    As far as I can tell, for buffing use, this spell allows the caster to turn the target (including self) into either: 1) Any critter of the same CR as that targets level. 2) A creature the caster is familiar with into a comparable CR (which is normally lower then level). So, which one? And...

    Sending yourself somewhere, but not really

    Outside Astral Projection, has D&D had spells that allowed you to project an image of yourself far away? I am not sure. I can't think of it, but there have been a lot of spells and magic items over the years.

    A new edition of Vampire in Stores?

    The "fifth" edition of Vampire is supposed to be showing up in stores. Wondering if anyone has seen it, or has thoughts on it.

    4 years of 5E on Amazon: same old same old

    4 years ago today the 5E Starter Set was released. It has been in the top 1000 of all books being sold ever since, easily making it one of the best selling RPG products of the last dozen years or so. Well, except for a few others... Overall sales rank on Amazon, as of this posting: PHB 44 DMG...

    Mounted get away

    If I understand the RAW correctly, a character could... 1) get on a horse and ride away on it in the same round they could also 2) do 1 and ride away (via the horse disengaging) from adjacent enemies they could also 3) stand up from prone and combine with 1 and or 2. 4) get on that...

    Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes 10th best selling book on preorder

    Some new categories to dominate. Usual suspects also doing well: PHB #53 DMG #133 MM #143 XGtE #103 (over 50% off!) VGtM #364 (#4 in reference!)

    5E Can you locate multiple objects of the same type with "locate object"?

    Just what the subject says. If you cast locate object to find, say, strawberries, and there are various bunches of strawberries within 1000 feet, can you find them all? I will add a corollary. Lets say you find the first batch. Then walk away so a second batch is now closer, do you get a sudden...

    Amazon: A deeply discounted PHB heads towards the top 10 and overall rankings still really high

    Others also doing well without being quite so cheap: DMG 94 MM 110 XGtE 130 MToF 233 (in preorder)

    5E Mearls' "Firing" tweet

    I assume there was a good reason for him to merge these two sources of frustration. But the reaction has been fairly predictable. And not entirely unwarranted.

    5E Amazon: D&D at the start of 2018

    So I think we had at least three threads on the strong opening for XGtE, but setting aside whatever "fastest" means, it never quite got to #1 overall on Amazon, like the PHB did. The PHB is back on top, possibly as a new semester brings new campaigns. But with XGtE D&D now has 7 perennial...

    5E Will Xanathar's Guide to Everything hit #1 on Amazon?

    Already in the top 10 of overall sales. Before its release. And its a rpg supplement.

    PF Starfinder rockets to the top on Amazon!

    D&D has some actual competition on Amazon. Technically the PHB is still hanging at #1, but Starfinder is putting numbers far ahead of any past Paizo product, or non WotC game book. I will have to dig around to find the links, but I think PF peaked at around 400-600, though it stayed in...

    comments lost on "starfinder sales out"?

    I guess I will start a new thread. Still, they where there, then gone.

    5E 3 Years Later: D&D's total Domination on Amazon (and Earth in General)

    So, as many of you know, a little over three years ago I started tracking how the new 5E was selling on Amazon. When I started that first thread the PHB went from the #1 new release for gaming, to the #1 new release overall, to the #1 overall book being sold through Amazon. Out of all books...

    5E Xanathar's Guide to Everything...

    Is #4 in fantasy gaming on Amazon. I think that the strongest 5E preorder we have seen, at least this far out. Its #466 in overall sales. ToA perorder is doing about as well the other adventures, #12 on fantasy gaming and #1032 overall. The PHB continues to hover above it all. #1 in...

    5E Amazon: PHB has new competition and Tales from the Yawning Portal...

    Zelda is back, with a new book that has been trading places with the PHB for the #1 spot in fantasy gaming. Also, a now steeply discounted tales from the Yawning Portal has had a big jump in the rankings. (Get it half off!) PHB has actually dropped a bit to 71 in overall sales, but this...
