    Consequences of Failure

    Hah. Not sure I'd label it as optimism. I listen to a lot of podcasts and skim through a lot of D&D games on Twitch. The vast majority of them look/sound/feel largely the same. I don't expect them to be great works of entertainment, but unfortunately they typically don't feature any exemplary...

    Consequences of Failure

    I'm not referring to written logs or hypothetical scenarios typed out on message boards. I mean an audio or video recording of an actual session.

    I bought a bunch of Ral Partha box sets about 15 years ago, but I never did anything with them. These are all still new/mint in the original shrink wrap.

    Vote on new XBOX controller colors...

    ...and here are your canidates: My personal opinion: They're all ugly as sin. Why, oh, why would you make every choice transparent!?! Some people prefer NOT to see the inside of the controller. Other than that, I'd say green wins by default since it's the only one that matches the...

    Nintendo announces new GBA model

    I wasn't going to get a GBA since the GBA Player for the Gamecube is coming out in May, but I think I'll have to snag one once this new little sucker is released in March. I've put the modifications/enhancements in bold... Self-contained LCD screen light, Flip-Up Screen Initially in Japan...

    [Sage Advice] Mind Flayers Improved Grab/Extract Abilities

    Straight from the horse's mouth... A few comments: 1) He says +7 for the attack/grapple bonus, yet the SRD says +8. Has there been some errata on the 'Flayer? 2) It seems the extraction isn't quite as automatic as the text may imply. Standard action after a successful check. 3) I...

    Sage Response: More on Mind Blank

    Hot off the press, and slightly edited for spelling errors, formatting, and my own misuse of See Invisibility (I accidentally called it Detect Invisibility :rolleyes: ) From what he's stated, it now seems clear that the physical 'information gathering' protections of Mind Blank are limited to...

    Weapon Size: Scaling Weapon Range Increments

    Has there been any charts or tables released explaining how to scale range increments for thrown/missile weapons in relation to their size? It obviously does change in some regard, judging by the oversized missile weapons certain creatures have in the MM (with improved ranges), but I have not...
