    D&D 5E celebrating pride and lgbtq+ players 2021

    That Wotc even takes the time to write about this topic is important. I know some people like to joke about this or say "hey, I've always done it this way". Well. guess what - many people didn`t, and I can assure you that right now, the shitstorm is brewing how Wotc forces politics into their...

    D&D 5E Tasha's Drow Art and the Future of Their Depictions in D&D

    I can. I`ve become very good at ignoring the stupid ballast that D&D is carrying around because some yokel said "let`s curse the cellar fairies with dark skin" back in the day. I`ve had decades of experience of ignoring my memories of the Chronomancer cover, so ignoring insensitive naughty word from...

    D&D 5E Tasha's Drow Art and the Future of Their Depictions in D&D

    We need more flying elf clerics who are also Drow with ecology-appropriate skin tone which was not ordained as a curse because they did something wrong is a result of the effects of Underground Drow Radiation on skin pigmentation combined with a lack of sunlight or sunlight-related light...

    D&D 5E Tasha's Drow Art and the Future of Their Depictions in D&D

    Why not? The look was taken from popular media. Just like 99% of all D&D content was. If there were elves with those ears as plastic figures in Kellogs Frisbees (TM) in the 80s, our books would be full of them. Most elves in early D&D books look like humans with glued-on ears anyway. Might as...

    D&D 5E Tasha's Drow Art and the Future of Their Depictions in D&D

    That would work as well in my group as it did when I tried to tell the players that, yes, those gnobbly-eared monstrosities on the front of the Dark Sun box are your player characters. Some artwork simply didn`t age well - no pun intended. Also, I love the Record of Lodoss war elf ears these...

    D&D 5E Tasha's Drow Art and the Future of Their Depictions in D&D

    I hope to see lots of cosplay of that and hopefullly never a cosplay of Drizzt do Urden from the cover of Drizzt do Urdens Guide to the Underdark shudders. Or every single person on the NPC cards in the Menzoberranzan Boxed set. shudders even more

    D&D 5E Tasha's Drow Art and the Future of Their Depictions in D&D

    I know that some people will dislike this interpretation, but it made me very happy when i saw it. The players I have right now are all young and first-time D&Ders, and they love drow pictures like these. None of them would even look at the old drow as possible player characters, but this was...

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    The point is to belittle attempts to be sensitive about specific themes and subjects. You know, like: "don´t think too hard about problematic stuff - let`s rather make jokes about those who try to do anything about them". I had people like that at my gaming table. Briefly. Very briefly.

    D&D 5E Candlekeep Mysteries, The Tome Show has it!!!

    Ghost variety. Ravenloft DMs rejoice!

    A wonderful initiative - and the art is great, too.

    D&D 5E Sell Out: Hasbro and the Soul of D&D

    I knew it was over when they started selling D&D action figures. Wait. That was TSR not Hasbro.

    D&D 5E D&D Up 35% In 2020 While Virtual Play Rises 86%

    If you`d told me that I could`ve easily and quickly shift a long-running campaign Online without much hassle I wouldn`t have believed you a year ago. THAT is how far we´ve come.

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Gothic Lineages & New Race/Culture Distinction

    You know, most won't get this reference and if you don`t, I don´t blame you, but... this thread reminds me on the PalAssassin wars on Planet AD&D shudders.

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Gothic Lineages & New Race/Culture Distinction

    All I can say is "finally". My "allow all races" FR campaign preparation breaks down once I have to explain away why these races are mostly evil, most of them are really strong but if you want to you can play something else etc. Maybe this can save us from 70 elf subraces or other improvised...

    D&D 5E Which Virtual Table Top are you using right now and what do you like best about it?

    I use all of the big three, but Foundry is VASTLY better than the other two. Fantasy Grounds is constantly sidegrading and inventing new bugs while failing to get a proper user excperience. Roll20 works, but is just... there. Nothing interesting happening. Foundry, though, is constantly...

    WotC Gale Force 9 Sues WotC [Updated]

    On the internet, btw, people are claiming this is Hasbro realising that Wotc has become a political entity because SJWs and diversity and stuff and that they are finally purging the company so that common sense can rule again and we don´t get teh gays forced on us in books etc. Lawsuits bring...

    D&D General Dragonlance's Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman Are Suing WotC for Breach of Contract

    I have not a lot to add to this conversation except that we seem to be getter as a hobby. Someone blaming "the SJWs" for this isn`t the first post anymore, so... progress, I guess? Still on the first page, though. Long way to go.

    WotC Older D&D Books on DMs Guild Now Have A Disclaimer

    I'm not surprised by anything anymore when it comes to people defending stupid stereotypes. "It's just SJWs trying to destroy tradition", "You hate it, stop destroying it" - I've heard it all, and now it's time to draw a line. If ´´ people insist on continuing to ingest their racist...

    WotC Older D&D Books on DMs Guild Now Have A Disclaimer

    A necessary and long-overdue change that really hurts nobody. Sad that people have to die before something like this is implemented. I mean, it's not that everybody has suddenly be going "huch, racism??? in my D&D?" when reading those old modules without something triggering a reaction...

    D&D 5E Brainstorm - stories to tell with WotC's new position on various folk (fka "race")

    You know, I thought for 10 minutes straight how to react to this post, how to deal with the fact that no one else has called you out. So I'll just say: congratulations. You took one of the most serious topics of these last few weeks and turned it into a drive-by joke. In a D&D thread about being...
