    Racial Quirks

    My favourite part of the Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting is the way each race is given a quirk: the Ulfen (Nordic) people sing during work and battle, the Tian (Chinese) have a tea cuture, halflings have a coming of age ceremony, half-orcs mark themselves in reflection of their long...

    Create a setting used the Grand OGL Wiki only

    I was flicking through the wonderful resource that is the Grand OGL Wiki, and I thought there is plenty of material on that website to allow GMs to create dozens of completely different campaigns. So, take a flick through the wiki and tell me what elements you'd patch together to create a...

    D&D 3E/3.5 3e style templates in 4e, how to do it?

    I think we need to know more about the flavour of the setting before we can say anything for sure. I like Mustrum Ridcully's Bloodline suggestion, but that's a lot of trouble to go to if a firesoul genasi could cover it. (Remember size has less of an effect in this edition* so a fireborn...

It uses lavish illustrations released under Creative Commons by Storn A Cook. You can download it for free in a number of formats: Full-color PDF (Lulu or Box.net) Full-color...

    Occidental Adventures

    The various Oriental Adventures books for different editions have varied in their accuracy, their stereotypes, their generalisations, how fantastical their interpretation is, and so on. If Dungeons and Dragons had been designed by an Asian, and Occidental Adventures had been written with...

    D&D 3E/3.5 New D&D System based on 3.5

    I think you've complicated what is essentially a feat-based system by adding masteries instead of using feats. I think you should look at games like True20 and the Anime d20 SRD to see how feat or point-buy systems can work. Cheers.

    D&D 4E 4E character creation

    Also consider reflavouring some of the figurines of wondrous power in Adventurer's Vault as shards of bone from which you can call the spirit of the creature that once had that skeleton.

    D&D 4E Homebrew setting I'll use for 4e

    Hi Rel, It's certainly an interesting premise for a campaign setting. I wonder, however, if you're getting carried away with the fresh ideas. For example, Rich Burlew wrote about his campaign setting taking place on a cube - which he thought was a great idea at the time, but it never actually...

    Classes without Powers

    There is no reason why classes in 4E have to have powers, so as a thought experiment I knocked up the warrior. I'd like to hear your opinions on whether the class is balanced and what options could be included to spice it up. Obviously the warrior will be more effective the longer encounters are...

    D&D 4E Harry Potter 4e

    I think Alchemy (from Adventurer's Vault) is the closest equivalent. EDIT: Or the artificer, previewed in Dragon.

    D&D 4E Harry Potter 4e

    I respectfully disagree. I suggest someone mocks up one build of one class, with just enough low-level powers and no more. Then we can debate the direction of the class - e.g. would we prefer it to be skills-based, do we want power recharges, should potions be covered like alchemy, etc. I think...

    D&D 4E Revisiting an old question: 4E Liker - anything you worry about?

    It doesn't do a whole lot, but it does something. I would've liked Intelligence to add to Initiative instead of Dexterity - reflectinig your mental ability to figure out the situation. After all, after the first round initiative doesn't have much to do with your reflexes. I don't think either...

    Community Reference Document?

    It seems the biggest barrier stopping publishers producing 4E adventures under the OGL is a lack of monsters and traps. Given the number of fans churning out 4E monsters on these very forums, would it make sense for a group to produce a single stat block format (similar but not identical to...

    How did pre-3E D&D "play"?

    I'm looking into making a short free RPG that "plays like" OD&D and BD&D though it could be mechanically very different. For that purpose, I'm looking for feedback on how you felt pre-3E "played". For example, Rolling 3d6 in order for each ability score. Complicated and scattered charts and...

    Tome of Battle Discipline Renaming

    I want to rename some of the ToB disciplines with more "Western European" style names. So far, I have: Defender of the Faith (Devoted Spirit). Merry Man (Falling Star [archery]) Wandering Minstrel (White Raven) If you have any ideas for the other disciplines, or better suggestions for Falling...

    D&D 4E Brainstorming new 4e subsystems

    I can see "feat families" gaining popularity: Feat Families: Two or three feats across two or three tiers, with the feat from the higher tier improving on the original in every way. Instead of purchasing both feats, the lower-tier feat can be retrained for the higher tiers. For example...

    Filter ENWorld Updates in Thunderbird

    Emails I receive from ENWorld appear in Thunderbird appear as "From: ENWorld - Morrus' 4th Edition D&D / d20 News and Reviews Site", but when I check their email address that comes up blank. As such, it's impossible to create a filter that sends them to a set folder. Does anyone know a way...

    D&D 4E Basic 4E

    Hi folks, Thanks for your feedback. The first concern seems to be that the rules are overly complicated. I have a feeling that in-practice they'll be easier: no feats, no magic items, no action points is fairly easy to remember, as is add your level. The other rules will just require a quick...

    D&D 4E Basic 4E

    (I wrote this up yesterday, but I'm pretty sure it didn't get posted. If it did, please tell me and I'll remove this post.) I was thinking about a rules-lite variant of Fourth Edition which took away some of the game's robustness and character options but also made it simpler, faster and easier...

    Community Reference Document?

    Given it's quite difficult to include full monster statistics (for example) in a product (including powers, etc.), would it be feasible for the community to create another license, allowing material to be used freely with the GSL? Though I'm not a lawyer, I envisage something like this: Anyone...
