You haven't seen the consent in gaming thread. It's where if you find something offensive or triggering during the session, you hold up the X Card. They're supposed to stop and change course at that time.

After looking at the starter set for 5e and the Stranger Things starter set for 5e, I think the Stranger Things one is a better value. It has 2 demogorgon minis, more pregen character sheets, and the adventure looks good. It looks as if hand written.

That being said, I would have liked to see a 1e version of the product. It would be in line with the time line of the show.

Since I can't watch it I'll guess to its content.

Cobra Commander announces:
He's joining SNL
joining the Trump administration
Accepting an award for grooming practices
Graduated barber college
Donated a kidney to Duke
Finally marrying Destro

Usually I'm the one here getting those "not available in your country" messages. :unsure:

I tried looking for an alternative source for the video, but I don't think there is one. The joke there is that msnbc did a story on a G.I.Joe convention back in 2015 as the mayor of Springfield Illinois gave the keys to the city to Cobra Commander (because in the comics Springfield was a major Cobra base). Then they had a quote from the mayor saying he wasn't worried as G.I.Joe would surely save the day regardless. And then they played sound clips from Cobra Commander yelling Hogwash! Lies!

Am thinking about switching our game to 5th edition. The more I go through the rules, the more convinced I am that it is the ultimate D&D.

Rolled a perfect 756,000. Lol It's all d6s. Someone must REALLY like West End Games.
Oh and it happened near me. I didn't hear about this. I need to go see if they missed any.

Mr. Bones the B1 battle droid is the funniest character in the Aftermath books. Also, hes a bad ass in battle.

Sinjir Rath Velus is pretty snarky and catty. He might be the first gay character I'm aware of in Star Wars. He's not the only one in the books either.

So, more on this. All the other characters would be easy to convert from 3.5 to 5e, but one of them is a Half-Giant Psychic Warrior... Now half giant could be built with modifying the goliath race, I think, but what am I to do with the class... Maybe rename Eldritch Knight? Use the magic points variant from dmg?

Side note, here’s a quote from a Monty Python Episode:
It was a day like any other and Mr and Mrs Samuel Brainsample were a perfectly ordinary couple, leading perfectly ordinary lives - the sort of people to whom nothing extraordinary ever happened, and not the kind of people to be the centre of one of the most astounding incidents in the history of mankind ... So let's forget about them and follow instead the destiny of this man ... (camera pans off them; they both look disappointed; camera picks up instead a smart little business man, in bowler, briefcase and pinstripes) ... Harold Potter, gardener, and tax official, first victim of Creatures from another Planet.
It seems that young Harry Potter grew up and is hiding in plain sight as a muggle.

I'm starting to thing I'm on ignore, so maybe someone can ask this question for me.

Is the class set in stone?

Do a little DM hand waving. They step through a portal to a world just like the current one. Some things changed. Instead of psychic powers he has this new mystical power.

Is the setting on Athas? Or is this a solo character? If the latter, there’s nothing wrong with making the character unique, like Murlynd.


In that case, per Aeson’s suggestion, the character is still a Psychic Warrior, and his powers work like nobody else’s. The “only” thing you need to do is make sure you work to make sure the character’s powers work similarly enough that they aren’t over- or underpowered,
