  1. Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition

    Last thing that happened, Darc asked us to roll initiative. Feel free to join in.
  2. Rise of the Runelords

    I forget, Tical isn't with us?
  3. Best Version of DnD?

    Maybe it's just not marketing to your sensibilities? The game is selling very well. Just earlier this year the PHB was topping the book sales charts on Amazon.
  4. Best Version of DnD?

    They put em on hiatus in 2016, yeah. But this year apparently RA Salvatore is going to do, wait for it, another Drizzt novel.
  5. VTT Maps

    Like... how much detail do you need on it? Does it need to be a "zoomed out" thing just for reference or does it need to be a map scaled for encounters?
  6. Rise of the Runelords

    No idea if Daton's going in first but his initiative is 9+2=11.
  7. Tyranny of Dragons: Hoard of the Dragon Queen

    Rolling initiative... 4 + 3 (dex) = 7
  8. Fantasy & SF Music Videos

    Seven pages and... no Thor?
  9. Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    I'd wager it likely has more to do with the release of Planescape Torment: Enhanced Edition...
  10. Pathfinder Version 2

    Player's handbook, page 123:
  11. Pathfinder Version 2

    Not saying this to bash Pathfinder but it is doubtful, yes. Pathfinder's rise to success was in part owed to D&D 4th edition's own crashing and burning.... But D&D is back and at a level of prominence not seen since, according to the people working there, 2nd Edition. Just this week, despite being four years old, the Player's Handbook reached #5 on Amazon... Between the marketing power of Almighty Hasbro, the name brand recognition and the popularity of things like Critical Role and Stranger Things... I just don't see any edition of Pathfinder outselling/outplaying D&D in the foreseeable future.

    Fluff is really cool, even if you're not running what the fluff says it still serves as inspiration. It's just a bit difficult to divert from the fluff when it is integrated into the crunch.
  13. Pathfinder Version 2

    I've rolled up two Pathfinder characters for two different DMs and there was never a background involved. Definitely not anything identifying what my character did before adventuring on the character sheet. Picked race, picked class, got skill ranks, got feats, one game added "traits" from a splatbook. Nothing like "what were you before adventuring? A soldier? Well then that'd make you decent at being athletic and intimidating, and also it'll make members of the army defer to your rank if need be. A noble? Well that means you know your history, and you're probably the persuasive type, and also it means you'd have an easier time meeting the upper crust and rulers of locales than a common folk. A criminal? You'd be sneaky and good at swiping things, and you'd have a contact in the underworld." I'm with you on that, this is one of my current worries with D&D 5E... The creative team looks like they are currently rocking a massive love of the "Raven Queen" and seek to codify her into all the settings.... They even did an Unearthed Arcana were she was a patron (unlike other pacts which were vaguer things like "archfiend", "archfey", "great old one" or "celestial"), which thankfully did not make it to a finalized book yet.
  14. Pathfinder Version 2

    If these were things Pathfinder already had, then why are they being boasted as new additions to Pathfinder 2nd Edition? http://paizo.com/community/blog/v5748dyo5lkl9?First-Look-at-the-Pathfinder-Playtest
  15. Pathfinder Version 2

    I read the announcement yesterday. Sure seems like they're taking ideas from D&D 5th edition, with backgrounds that provide mechanical benefits and the use of reactions during rounds and defining monster challenge by more than just hit dice... Hmmmm.
