    Prehistoric Campaign

    On-topic, though, you might want to look at West of Eden, by Harry Harrison. I don't remember much, since I read it back in the 80s, but it's about a version of Earth where humans and lizard people had evolved side-by-side.

    Prehistoric Campaign

    A prehistoric thread about prehistoric campaigns ... 17+ year necromancy, not bad!

    A very small cosplayer?

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    In the Netherlands, not following the rules is the norm. And then people want to sue the government to ease the restrictions. If they want to sue the government for anything, it should be for not being tough enough and dragging the whole thing out. (After spending nearly my whole life here...

    What's the best and worst D&D book you own from any edition?

    The third time it's been resurrected, by my count. The thread that couldn't die... My personal favourite ... Too many to choose from, so I'm going to go with the Mentzer Basic PHB, for giving us Aleena. Least favourite is probably Weapons of Legacy, for being cast aside after less than an hour...

    D&D General What have you done with Orcs in your games?

    I haven't used orcs in any of my adventures for a while, but I see them figuring as a Cimmeria/Vanaheim/Nordheim area from the Conan stories: warrior tribes whose habits and values seem barbaric to more "civilised" people. (Wasn't there a quote from one Conan story along the lines of...

    TSR Running list of potential problematic issues in TSR era DnD

    To my mind, it always makes more sense to pray to the god of light for a Light spell, to the god of healing for Cure Light Wounds and so on.

    D&D General Identity of Monsters Post-Alignment (+)

    I've been running a series of adventures that go the other way: all the PCs are halflings, and everyone else is, if not evil, at least very nasty. (I've been trying to recreate the feeling from fairy tales of "small plucky adventureres against the big bad world". So far it's worked quite well.)

    D&D General The Rules Cyclopedia - Unlearning Dnd Preconceptions from a 3e player

    Regardless of personal arguments and experiences, I think the fact that subsequent editions of D&D did not go back to THAC0 is sufficient proof that players are happier without it. If only because the new way of d20 + modifiers against a target value is the consistent approach to resolving...

    D&D 5E Escaping a Wild Hunt

    Of course there's the fun that you get if they accidentally stumble into a hostile creature that could delay them and cause a lot of racket in a fight.

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Movie should follow the Deadpool model

    I tried to picture how it would look, and just kept coming back to DM of the Rings.

    D&D 3E/3.5 3.X Compatible Racial Classes

    Have you looked at Savage Species? I don't think it was particularly well received when it was first published, but it might have some useful stuff for you.

    D&D 5E My Bard Player just broke the game - and I love it!

    "Most powerful bard in the land" sounds like 1980s Stock Aitken & Waterman. Perhaps whenever the party encounter a bard in the future, they find out he or she works for The Big Bard?

    It's Your Turn to GM

    In boardgaming, they're usually called the Overlord.

    D&D 5E What magic items would a Lich King have (Thay and Szass Tam)?

    One thing I've often thought would represent the "home advantage" of tackling a wizard in his tower, or a dragon in his lair, would be to metamagic all their spells. Or create magic circles that metamagic spells. Or magic traps that trigger beneficial spells (Heal, Haste and so on).
