    Origins Event Registration: awful once again

    Surprised I didn't see a thread on this already, but maybe I'm looking in the wrong place. MAN. I've been going to GenCon and Origins for a decade now, and put up with some bad online ordering experiences, but this one was probably the worst. And, that was after GAMA delayed event...

    Keep on the Shadowfell Pregens as PDFs

    Does anyone know where I could find the pregenerated PCs from Keep on the Shadowfell (including the "bonus" tiefling warlord) as PDFs? I imagine that they're somewhere on the WotC site, but 20 minutes of searching was fruitless, so I suspect I'm missing something obvious. Help!

    Brett Favre retires

    A sad day in Cheeseland: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/football/nfl/03/04/favre.retire.ap/index.html?eref=T1 I've got so many memories of watching Brett play. I was lucky enough to see him play at Lambeau Field, over a dozen times. He sometimes got a pass from some people for making...

    D&D 4E Fantasy Flight looking for RPG Writer-Developer - 4e

    I agree...or someone who really wants a break in the industry, and is flexible enough to be able to meet their requirements.

    D&D 4E Fantasy Flight looking for RPG Writer-Developer - 4e

    Also, note that it's $36K as a contractor. Which means no benefits -- most importantly, no health insurance. Some of you yoots might be able to get away with that, but, if health insurance is important to you, you'd be buying your own policy, which would take a good chunk out of that $36K.

    D&D 4E A humble 4e suggestion

    Perhaps 4E will be more environmentally responsible. The trash heaps of 3.5 dungeons are obviously choked full with empty quivers. Pelor knows how long those will take to decompose -- the otyughs won't touch 'em! :D

    D&D 4E Really?? Is RPGA really the best place to test 4e

    Nope. The RPGA did away with table voting, as a whole, in late 2002/early 2003, or thereabouts. And, RPGA "classics" (adventures with pregenerated characters, as Piratecat was describing) have also fundamentally ceased to exist. Demand for Classic modules apparently declined as the number of...

    D&D 4E Really?? Is RPGA really the best place to test 4e

    Even that varies by campaign. What you describe is true in Living Greyhawk; I know that's not how it works in (the now non-RPGA) Living Arcanis, and I don't think that's how it works in Living Kalamar, either.

    D&D 4E Really?? Is RPGA really the best place to test 4e

    ::boggles:: Yes, I'm sure that *some* RPGA events don't sell out at GenCon and Origins. Living Greyhawk consistently sells out most of its slots...the "specials" at GenCon sold out within hours of event ordering going live. I've played in the RPGA for 6 years, playing literally hundreds of...

    D&D 4E 4E: Saving throws...

    Pretty much. The SW Saga formulae for Defenses are: Reflex Defense: 10 + (heroic level or armor bonus) + Dex modifier + class bonus + natural armor bonus + size modifier Fortitude Defense: 10 + heroic level + Con modifier + class bonus + equipment bonus Will Defense: 10 + heroic level +...

    Little things that make you smile

    So, in this thread, we've spent 3+ pages griping about things that piss us off (with a preponderance of traffic issues :) ). In an effort to not be so much of a grouch...what are little things that happen to you that bring a smile to your face, or at least make the day a little bit easier...

    D&D 4E 4E is to be announced at GenCon?

    If 4E D&D is as close to 3.5 as Star Wars Saga is, then, possibly, yes. That's an assumption. None of us know how close (or far) 4E will be from 3.5. Where did I ever even *mention* the D20 trademark? All I'm saying is the ability to use the 3.5 SRD is no guarantee that a third-party...

    D&D 4E 4E is to be announced at GenCon?

    The OGL can't be taken back, no...but there's no reason that 4E would have to be OGL. Any publisher can use the OGL to make 3.5-compatible products until the end of time. However, there's nothing in the OGL that says that WotC has to use it for future editions of the game, or that they have to...

    D&D 4E 4E is to be announced at GenCon?

    Boy, don't count on that. I can't see them (or, for that matter, any major publisher) ever saying "this is the capstone edition of this game."

    Zombie dire rats - filth fever?

    So, I'm using the zombie template rules in the MM to create zombie dire rats. Dire rats have an extraordinary special attack: disease (filth fever). The rules on zombies say: But, in the next paragraph it says: My gut tells me that zombie dire rats wouldn't still have filth fever, but I...
