    D&D 3E/3.5 How much work to play a 3.0 adventure? (for a 3.5 DM)

    The only real difficulty is spellcasters with spells that have changed, ie. Haste and Harm. Some stats for outsiders have been buffed in 3.5, but as long as the original encounter was balanced, just run with the 3.0 stats. With the spellcasters though, you will have to think of other ways to...

    D&D 4E Since the announcement of D&D Next, are you still buying 4E product?

    I stopped playing 4e after about a year and a half of play. We had fun, but the system's upsides weren't worth the downsides for both me and my group. Even if we had continued playing, we probably wouldn't have purchased any more material. It was getting to be a bit too much to cope with for us...

    How would you do Trailblazer psionics?

    I believe Trailblazer could do Dark Sun well. But Dark Sun needs psionics. Specifically, I am thinking how to deal with the recovery of powerpoints (pp) when resting for 10 minutes. You could do it the same as for spells (pp spent on multi target spells are not recovered after a rest etc.), but...

    Selling core books & splats for 2nd, 3.0 and 4th (bid on entire edition please)

    Hello everyone, I've decided to sell my 2nd edition, 3.0 edition and 4th edition books because for fantasy RPGing I now play Trailblazer to the exclusion of everything else. I just want it to end up in some gamer's hands, instead of gathering dust on my shelf, so I'll sell the whole lot for...

    1st level hit points: class HD full or not?

    I am currently playing with the first class HD (level 1) as not being full, as the characters are getting their constitution score as bonus hit points anyway. The rules seem not to be definitive on this. What is the official take and/or how have you ran this?

    I need to play D&D. What's my system, what's my campaign setting?

    Hello everyone, Having played 4e till mid Epic levels (which burned me out spectacularly, so I am not touching it again), we switched to Star Wars Saga. Me and two out of four players liked it, but one of the "likes star wars" players wants to mostly stop playing, and the other players were...

    Gargantuan? Creature size categories?

    Hello people, I can't for the life of me find the number of squares gargantuan creatures occupy. The compendium seems to be of no help either. Is it only 4 by 4 (1 step up from huge)? Collossal as a size category between gargantuan and huge has been removed right? Edit: Nevermind, I thought...

    Epic 4e play: the system makes it too easy for PCs to hit, instead of too hard.

    Hello fellow gamers! I’ve recently made the jump to Epic levels (the campaign started at 6th level), and I am very glad that I have not allowed either Weapon or Implement expertise to be taken by my group’s characters. I posit that these feats are, in fact, not necessary in the game. In...

    What has been fixed?

    Hi there, About a year ago I downloaded the beta, and Pathfinder seemed like a slightly altered 3.5 to me. Has the final release resulted in a more radical departure than some class, skill, and spell changes? I never had a problem with the 3.5 classes and spells, it was the prep time and the...

    Scion of Arkhosia overland flight

    When you use the 16th level Scion of Arkhosia overland flight speed, can you still use your standard action if you land within the same move action? Or do you lose your actions as soon as you use overland flight? It seems to me this just completely overshadows the previous flight ability. Is...

    D&D 4E Disarm in 4E

    My take would be slightly different. I like the weakened idea, it is easy to run and powerful enough (half damage is nothing to sneeze at). The save ends mechanics mean that solos and elites will have an easier time getting their weapon back/improvising a suitable weapon/drawing a new weapon...

    D&D 4E How long are your 4e combats taking, real time?

    Between about 60 and 75 minutes, but we do have slightly optimized characters. So far I haven't felt the need to shorten encounters by reducing monsters to minion status though.

    Do certain settings come out better in certain editions?

    Hello folks, I lately have seen a few people on these boards say that Dark Sun would be great in 4e. I remember having trouble running Dragonlance around the War of the Lance era in 3e, while loving said setting and era in 2e. Forgotten realms worked better in 3e than in 2e. It was certain...

    Forked Thread: 1E DMG vs. 3E DMG vs. 4E DMG: 1e DMG in newer edions

    Forked from: 1E DMG vs. 3E DMG vs. 4E DMG I keep hearing that the 1e DMG is so great, that people still use it for newer editions. For what? By now you know Gygax' advice on the game, the rules do not apply to the edition you are playing, and the tables are about things most players don't...

    Is switching Age of Worms to 4e halfway through worth it?

    Nothing like a new edition to start posting again, eh? Basically, the question I want to ask your advice for: should I convert my 3.5 game or not? Our group has just finished the 2nd adventure of the Age of Worms, and are now 5th level. I like 4th edition, from what I saw in Keep on the...

    D&D 4E Should hit points continue to be generated randomly in 4e?

    And do spell casters still use damage spells? And if they do, why?! "Hmmmm.... everything takes about 4 or 5 fireballs to kill, instead of 2 or 3... better switch to save or sleep/paralyze/die kind of spells" That is another problem with random rolled hit die rolling, as mentioned earlier...

    D&D 4E Should hit points continue to be generated randomly in 4e?

    Back in 2e my character was a super tough dwarf. 2 fighters in our group, and mine had 18 CON! At first level, we got max hp, and I definitely had an edge over that flimsy elf with 8 CON (no penalty in 2e), with 14 vs 10 hp. After 3 more levels though, I had rolled a 2,3 and a 4. The elf...

    D&D 4E Weapon Sizes must die in 4E

    3.5e weapon rules were more realistic, but were annoying in game, mostly when the group wanted to redivide its weapons among them, but other examples have also been mentioned. So for me, realism shmealism, let's hope they go back to one-size fits all weapons. Rav

    D&D 4E Interesting scoop has been released regarding the "direction" of 4E

    And look who said it! We all know Richard to be a reliable guy... This is just too bad.

    D&D 4E Will you buy 4e?

    Eventually my backlog of 3e Dungeon adventures I want to run will diminish to the point that I will switch. This will probably be about two years after it is released. With luck, that will mean printings with errata included.
