    D&D 5E Eberron: Only two updates for far?

    Is my memory right? The first Unearthed was about Eberron and then we had a UA Artificer redo this year. I thought there was another.

    So what's the speed of character growth, real time

    In my longest 3.0 game, we went from 1st to 16th, with weekly game sessions, in about two years. Has anyone played the game long enough to get the gist of how fast level advancement is with 4.0?

    The producer of Andromeda/Dresden Files one of us ..

    One of Robert Hewitt Wolfe's quotes on SciFi Wire: Which isn't to say that we don't consult with him[author of Dresden Files novels, Jim Butcher] , and he doesn't have notes like, 'You know, he really shouldn't fall out of the third-floor window and float to the ground, because that's just a...

    Is David Noonan blessed or am I cursed?

    Where did he get these players?!? Everytime I get someone who find a broken combo, they ride it for as long as they can. Some even whine that's "not fair" when I put a stop to it. They expect me to "meet the challenge" with NPCs built just to tackle the problem PC instead of putting them back...

    Sell me on True20

    Browsing True20, it looks like it's got promise. It's a lighter d20 without going overboard. For those who've run it, what's strengths, its weaknesses?

    When did DM's get lazy?

    I was looking over the new PrC format WotC has and noticed the "Adaption" section, which details how the class can fit in Forgotten Realms, Eberron and homebrews. I don't know about other DM's but most of these sections seem pretty common sense to me. Have DM gotten so lazy that WotC can pad a...

    Anyone catch the phone number from "Supernatural"

    In the last few minutes of tonight's show they gave out a real phone number. Anyone catch it?

    Bad Axe Games ... what's the status on the HOHF project?

    I thought I read once that all of Bad Axe's Heros of High Favor race books were going to be updated to 3.5 and complied in one book with some additonal stuff for psionic classes and humans. Is the project still a go?

    Iron Heroes threaten my GM style of low magic items...

    I've got some players who are getting a tad too insistent that I consider using Iron Heroes, saying it will free the "game" from dependence on magic items ... in a campaign where my players complain they don't get enough of what ... you guessed it, magic items. If I ran DND RAW, this might have...

    Keeping the players guessing without working hard ...

    I'm still digesting Spycraft 2.0 and one of the things I've noticed is the "sliding scale" and "damage save" mechanics for minor NPCs. Basically, mooks and monsters are listed by "Tiered" modifers that are based on the level of the players. A minor thug may still be a minor challenge...

    Where have all the true geeks gone? :)

    Some days I feel like a dying breed. I'm an "old fashioned" geek. I don't like sports and love the cerberal stuff. It took me years to branch out into other games, like wargames and boardgames. Until I became a reporter and my job required it, most mundane matters like politics and finances...

    How about SciFi C&C?

    Most of my d20 stuff is SciFi based, but hey I'm always looking for ways to speed up combat and such. How would you create alien species in C&C? Got an example? Could you do a SIEGE based psionics system? Would the fighter wane in favor of a Ranger ranged weapon class? How would you handle...

    Druid to Clockwork mage: Using templates and special effects

    I just got Green Ronin's Advanced Bestiary and read up on the Clockwork template, which used a Clockwork Choker as an example bodyguard critter. It got me thinking about a WotC web article called "Solution by Substitution," which suggests changing spell names and appearances (but not mechanics)...

    3rd party d20 rules for adding pulp to Eberron

    I'm taking over an Eberron game shortly and decided to see what 3rd party d20 rules I could scavange off my bookshelf to further enhance a puply feel. Here are my thoughts on what I found along with the rules and tweaks I thought might be necessary to get them to retro fit in a continuing...

    Pulpy rules that I considered adding to Eberron

    It's my own purely personal opinion that WotC was a bit timid in introducing pulpy game mechanics to Eberron. OTOH, a good GM could do quite a bit with Action Points and the proliferation of NPC classes. So I looked on my shelf and considered some of the stuff there to cannibalize for my...

    A comment on Kushner's review of Chunky Dungeons

    http://www.enworld.org/reviews/index.php?sub=yes&where=active&reviewer=JoeGKushner&product=CD2 As a heads up, the Chunky Dungeon brand name is WWG's generic term for Mage Knight accessories and is actually their newer PDF series. Their original PDFs series are in 1" scale for d20 products...

    XP by mission vs. kills

    Last night we did a Champions session with GM who gives out xp per mission (though in d20 Star Wars pretty much does the same.) Ordinarly, I don't see much difference, until we scrambling out of a building that was becoming a crowded landing pad for vampires. It was obvious the GM was giving us...

    Converting d20 M and Spycraft Vehicles

    Anyone attempted to convert vehicle stats between these two systems? I tend to like the chase rules in spycraft better and it looks like it can dropped in wholesale once coversions are done.

    Other uses for d20 Trinity

    Fun games. I'm thinking of other ways to use them beyond their settings, though d20 Adventure! can be pretty much used in a generic fashion as is. I'm thinking of using d20 Trinity itself as fugitives style game. Super soliders hunted by the government at first as a cover up and then in...
