    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    (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...

    Wizards of the Coast Fonts

    I know some of the fonts Wizards uses are in-house, but I was wondering if all of them are. For example, two different fonts are used for the body text - one that looks a bit like Calibri and one that looks a bit like Times New Roman. Does anyone know if Wizards used just in-house fonts for...

    Weapon/Implement Transparency

    Hi guys, I've been trying to figure out what confuses and annoys me about 4E's weapon-implement-at-will-power mix. I think what I want is for implements to be identical to weapons - that is, each implement has a proficiency bonus, a set damage, a range, etc. Then every class's at-will powers...

    D&D 4E King Arthur - 4E Adventurer?

    Reading through Wikipedia on King Arthur, I noticed the following text. While it refers to three different approaches to King Arthur, when combined they actually read a lot like a 4E character in the three tiers. Sounds a lot like a character in the heroic tier. A wilderness campaign...

    Power Sources purely cosmetic?

    When the three PH 1 power sources were annouced, I anticipated they would have a significant effect on characters - maybe that all martial classes would draw from a single pool of powers. However, as it has turned out, it seems power sources are purely cosmetic. Warlocks have completely...

    Getting Players to Create NPCs

    For my new campaign, I want all the characters to come from a small, primitive village and I want them to have close ties to the NPCs of that village - I want the players to design many, if not all, of the NPCs. Do people have advice on how to approach this? I'm thinking of index cards with...

    What 'Tricks' Could Certain Classes Get?

    Looking through the Dead Levels articles (I and II) as well as K's Races of War, I thought about what small abilities classes could get to make them a little more versatile out of combat. For example, giving the fighter a greater carrying capacity than his Str would allow is a nice...

    D&D 3E/3.5 3.5e Publishing Models in a 4e world

    Despite all the people that say they will continue to play 3.5 temporarily or permanently come June this year, EN Publishing's sales have dropped by 80%* and I assume other publishers have suffered similar drops. This has made me wonder - presumably some 3.5 market will remain, even if it's...

    Naming Fourth Edition

    There's been a lot of complaints about the names used in Fourth Edition - stuff like Feywild, Dragonborn, Shadow Fell and Eladrin. My question to those that don't like the names is: what names do you like? How should game designers come up with new fantasy names? How would you name: A wild...
