    D&D 6E Sixth Edition - or - alright, I'm gonna do it myself then

    Cheery wave from a fellow procrastinator! (can't remember the last time I worked on my "modern" naval combat... rules? Game? thingamajig, lol.) I frankly don't see myself moving to another new edition any time soon- if ever. Particularly given the history of even numbered editions, and...

    D&D General On Grognardism...

    TOTALLY off topic here, but your post reminded me of something I experienced a year or two ago. My friends and I were in Buffalo, NY touring the museum ships there. Among other things, this museum has a WWII Destroyer, a WW II Submarine, and a WW II Cruiser that commissioned too late to...

    D&D General On Grognardism...

    Wow- Panzer Leader!! I haven't heard about that game since the early 80's!

    D&D General On Grognardism...

    And thank Reorx for it! Those endless rules arguments, and the hard headed pedantry that was usually a big part of them were annoying af! (not just Enworld, I'm a long time D&D message board junkie, lol I've read more than enough of those threads...) The "build" threads were mostly...

    OD&D Since we have all those threads about old editions- Moldvay/Cook.

    BECMI is essentially the same game, just re-edited and with the promised companion rules, plus masters, and immortals rules added. So, yeah they're included. (including Rules Cyclopedia, too!) I'm not familiar with any of the third party rewrites.

    OD&D Since we have all those threads about old editions- Moldvay/Cook.

    Yes, I suck at thread titles... Anyhow, since I was reminded of it, I thought I'd read through the old Basic and Expert rulebooks. Which gave me an idea or two. It got me thinking about our old house rules, and how I'd approach it a bit differently if that game were to come out now...

    D&D 5E Corrupted Avatar of Lurue

    Darnit Wizards! Why you gotta mess with my favorite goddess, and make her avatar evil???? That's an abomination, man! Also, since Lurue is native to Faerun, why does she need an avatar at all?

    D&D 5E New-ish 5E GM Questions - Possible spoilers.

    For question 2, The option to join the various factions is written right into Lost Mine of Phandelver. They usually get noticed and approached by an NPC and given "the recruiting speech", if a character(s) seem to fit in well with the overall goals/ideology of the faction. These groups...

    D&D General What published module have you run or played the most?

    B2 Keep on the Borderlands. T1 Village of Hommlet B1 In Search of the Unknown Ravenloft- the OG! Dragonlance Classics. We moved to homebrew adventures pretty early, and I own SO many adventures- plus a long time subscription to Dungeon mag- that it's unusual to run through modules...

    OD&D Edition Experience: Did/Do you Play BECM/RC D&D? How Was/Is It?

    BINGO!!!! I never got the popularity of gaming channels based on watching other people play video games, etc. Heck- it used to bore me to tears when my friends would hook up the nintendo and play. ZZZZZ. Got a buddy now trying to get me into D&D online (or whatever it's called) on Steam...

    D&D 5E How did you fare against Venomfang the Young Green Dragon Lost Mine of Phandelver?

    We spoke with the druid, first- so we knew it was there, and took a long rest before we went after it. And then we prepared. Mage had mage armor up, and, since he's an abjurer, his arcane ward was also up and at full strength. We planned to open up with the wizard's scroll of fireball...

    D&D General How do you handle doubling of classes?

    This used to happen frequently, back in the old days- when we were often able to get 6 or more players. Not to mention the main campaign, where we had a habit of picking up strays as well as playing multiple characters each. Which was a hedge against the sometimes frequent low turnouts. It...

    D&D 5E Request for clarification: Undead Fortitude

    I'm wondering two things about this ability for Zombies: 1. does this apply just when a zombie is dropped to exactly 0 hp- or for any attack that drops it below 0? 2. do I roll that saving throw every time it hits 0 hp, or just the first time? I'm wondering, because I fought some Ash...

    D&D 5E What is your definition of a Vanilla setting

    So, essentially, the Known World- later known as Mystara- that was the assumed setting for Moldvay Basic D&D. No extra fluff at all- just the maps with names in the modules. It was the ultimate vanilla setting- because it wasn't a setting- it just WAS. Later, of course, they built it up...

    D&D 5E What Single Thing Would You Add

    Dammit- you took mine! :cry: So, I guess it'd have to be the older version of the alignment system. A) I LIKED how spells like protection from Evil, Dispel evil, and stuff like that worked. As well as aligned items like weapons. and also B) because it would annoy all those who've been...

    D&D 5E What Single Thing Would You Eliminate

    Yup. I've been preparing to DM Lost Mine of Phandelver- ie filling up a notebook with keyed stat blocks, notes for tactics, how soon help might arrive etc; As well as XP and Loot sections for each entry. I'm utterly gobsmacked and completely confused as to how they come up with the DC...

    D&D 5E What Single Thing Would You Eliminate

    Agree totally. For those who are very into RP, this seems like a silly addition. I imagine they'd have a much more detailed character background and quirks sheet already prepared- and plans to add to it as the campaign progresses. For those who aren't so much into it- it's like you said...

    D&D 5E Revising Classic Settings

    This is exactly the direction I don't want them to go. Thus, I won't be buying any of these books, if it turns out that way. Keep the culture war crap out of my D&D, thank you.

    D&D General Things That Bug You

    It bugs me that they are pushing alignment out of the game slowly. I LIKED that part of it- esp as it pertained to magic. Not very convinced by how 5E handles it.

    D&D 1E Early Game Reflections

    Yeah, that definitely sounds familiar... I seem to recall a certain half-ogre who walked up the a cave mouth, and began bellowing at the top of his lungs. Something to the effect of COME OUT LUNCH!!! The occupants were not happy to see us.
