    Ah, my apologies, didn't know that. I'm still working through the book proper.

    Guess I got some reading to do, then. I'm surprised thieves are banned, haven't they been THE essential dungeon-delving class since their introduction since no other class has things like Find Traps and Pick Locks?

    If you're open to newbies I would love to learn the ways of the older systems. Just need to know where I could get the OSRIC rules.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    I don't think they have sculptors, I think they have 3D modelers. Also if they are going to make bigger monster minis I really hope they do Orcus because I love his 5th Edition redesign but all it got so far was a pricey seated Gale Force 9 mini.

    And conveniently, the latest Unearthed Arcana is all about naval adventuring... more specifically, rules about ships. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

    Yeah, but I don't have a 3D printer, and his demon arm isn't really emphasized there...

    I was making a joke. Even if you don't use the grim reaper this makes a good wraith or specter or any of the floaty sheety undead types.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Wow, Grim Reaper? How obscure, that only comes up if the player draws that specific card from the Deck of Many Things. You know, if they keep going back to Curse of Strahd for minis, maybe SOME day we'll get an Izek Strazni miniature.
  9. So someone on Youtube did a video about a score of pre-primed unpainted Wizkids minis from China, and I somehow lucked out and snagged the last one I saw on ebay, a lot of 25 minis for 23$. Now mind you the seller is counting individual minis and considers decor pieces as minis so it's not going to be 25 PC/encounter minis, but still for that price... Sure hope I get some good stuff and it's not all like... treasure chests and wagon wheels....

    Pathfinder Version 2

    5E's design mentality was basically getting rid of all these situational modifiers. Most of it is replaced by the Advantage/Disadvantage system (roll two dice, take the higher or lower roll depending). The only situational modifiers I can think of that remain are things like cover.
  11. The only dragons I have are the Reaper young fire dragon from Bones and the dragon from the Dragonstrike board game. I don't think that's enough dragon to use up all those bottles. XD
  12. I guess I lied about being done with minis purchases after the massive purchase of TSR minis... guess the state of disrepair of that haul kind of left me a bit overwhelmed, and it was Ghoulie Bag time. XD So I got a Legendary Battles Minotaur just because I was curious what a pre-painted Reaper mini would be like (and it is very very good), along with a Bones avatar of Sokar, a Sandra Garrity vampire and the Dungeon Dwellers monster flesh paint set... plus the free Dungeon Dwellers female vampire and the Ghoulie Bag, which given I placed that order on the 30th, means I must've been one of the last people scoring one. (so I now have three bottles of Breast Cancer Pink, and not a single clue what to use em for)

    Pathfinder Version 2

    5E still has the hit points and the easy resurrections at higher levels but the economy and magic item accessibility is left far more up to how the DM runs things. Accuracy is a lot more bounded and enemy armor class is generally low (until you get to campaign-level adversaries, few even reach AC20, full plate & shield) so even a +1 weapon is a huge boon in this regard, to-hit bonuses boost up pretty fast. So in that regard, 5E doesn't need magic items for the game to keep going, which leaves the accessibility of magic items and the bizarre economy that comes with it relatively absent. That's entirely up to you and your group. There's probably people out there still playing AD&D 2nd edition. Heck, I'm a newbie and I'm hoping I can use the Rules Cyclopedia for my next campaign.

    That's the first time I'm seeing that comparison drawn.

    Pathfinder Version 2

    Is that a figure of speech or are you insulting broccoli? [Zoidberg voice]You still have 5E. You all have 5E! 5E has boomed in popularity. It's selling in numbers they say they haven't seen since 2nd edition. Just this year, three years after release, the PHB topped Amazon's charts briefly.

    Rise of the Runelords

    Daton's going to kind of stand there a bit puzzled because he was staying there specifically so he could bring the food himself, then resign himself and rejoin Shayliss. "Forgive me, my lady, I was lost in my thoughts. But fear not, you can consider your rat problem as good as solved!"

    Best Version of DnD?

    Roll20 has an initiative tracker, yes. Guess I could put down a token called CHECK FOR MORALE atop the order.

    Pathfinder: Seers of the Drowned City

    Man, I'm having a hard enough time with the core rulebook's classes as it is, I don't want to go further down the complexity hole. Definitely going human, but now to decide between Fighter or Barbarian....

    Best Version of DnD?

    Not exactly miniatures buuuuuuuut... Not sure how I'd add a morale reminder on a VTT though.

    Best Version of DnD?

    So I should run initiative through a couple of times just to deal with a round then? First go: morale, second go: move, third go: shoot, fourth go: spell, fifth go: fight? Meanwhile I spent today's entire Cyclopedia session forgetting to roll Morale for the goblins. Also the monk who insists she's a catperson died, so the player rolled a human fighter held captive just one alcove further in the goblin lair. The halfling had to do so much of the combat this session because neither the fighter nor the dwarf had any good rolls, despite the AC6 of the goblins. So now having seen two humans die and two men just suck at hitting things, she thinks humans are just completely fragile and men can't fight worth a damn. There kind of isn't any setting that really pushes all my button but I can probably "harvest" the most out of Dark Sun. I love sword and sorcery but I'm not into psionics or pure wasteland landscape. They did say Wayfinder's Guide To Eberron would serve as a primer for a more polished Eberron product down the line, so it might still be Eberron.

    Tyranny of Dragons: Hoard of the Dragon Queen

    Right, well the cultist is going down first, as he is closest. So Daton will attempt a swing of his greatsword. 10 + 5 = 15 to attack If that hits.... 5 + 5 + 3 = 13 slashing damage

    Pathfinder: Seers of the Drowned City

    I'm not sure what archetypes are in this context.

    Pathfinder: Seers of the Drowned City

    Eh, I'm a guy who likes his basics. I don't really want to dwell too far down the splatbook hole, I can be happy playing the traditional races and classes. I'm not really sure what benefits a Barbarian can bring to this adventure over a fighter.

    D&D 5e Tyranny of Dragons

    Not sure. Last thing that happened, we needed to roll initiative. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72759-tyranny-of-dragons-hoard-of-the-dragon-queen/&do=findComment&comment=1760878

    Pathfinder: Seers of the Drowned City

    I'm still uncertain what type of fighter to make....
