  1. I love how pragmatic this Kickstarter is.


    It's like "We're going to give you every basic creature/PC that you need to DM your games, right out of the box, standard equipped for the most popular systems, and we're going to give you lots of them."


    I can use every single thing in this Kickstarter, and I love that I don't have to pay for 1/3 weird stuff that I won't use to get the 2/3 stuff that I need.

    who needs what level if i want to show the map to other remote players and push tokens around.  can i do this at the free level?


    You can do all of that for free!


    You only need the paid subscription if you want to do fancy stuff like have dynamic lighting for your maps and import/export digital character sheets, which isn't even what you want to do anyway!

    What I would love to do is make a Neogi riding around on an old school Umber Hulk's shoulder like an evil parrot! That may be tough though as Umber Hulks are WOTC protected creatures. But oh man how awesome would that be?


    Umber Hulks may be copyrighted, but Burrowing Behemoths don't appear to be!

    I should note that during the show today Ron stated he had asked Julie Guthrie to alter the spear arm positioning of the the Slithe Warrior (the photo he showed on the show, and that I posted previously, showed the spear held tip down, as the concept art shows).  He didn't have this photo ready for today's show, but he did mention he wanted the spear held up, rather than down.  The update had the new potion shown.




    I'm really excited about these Slithe.

  5. Since the Dungeon Dwellers line seems to be made for male and female versions of "classic" types of player characters:


    A female dwarf fighter to go with Borin Ironbrow (battleaxe or warhammer)

    A female human monk to go with Brother Hammond (quarterstaff)

    A female elf ranger to go with Lanaerel Grayleaf (longbow or two-weapon fighting with longsword and shortsword)

    A female halfling rogue to go with Gus Greenweevil and Stitch Thimbletoe (shortsword)

    A female human wizard to go with Luwin Phost (quarterstaff)

    A male elf wizard to go with Anthanelle (quarterstaff)

    A male human barbarian to go with Jana Frostwind (battleaxe)

    A male human rogue to go with Daschelle (shortsword)

    He has a special ability called crossbow expert. It ignores the loading property & such. Pretty allows him to fire them off each round. Which in 5e terms means he is reloading & firing during his turn.

    I don't think that Crossbow Expert lets you load and fire two hand crossbows in one round, as I think that you need a free hand to manipulate the ammunition, even if you ignore the loading property.


    Crossbow Expert does let you load and fire one hand crossbow twice in one round (once with your Attack action and once with your Bonus action), though, so it's kind of moot except in specific situations.


    Two hand crossbows looks cooler, though, so two hand crossbows should prevail, rules semantics be damned!


    I definitely think that the Elthin Bluesteel, Gunslinger model is the best choice!


    Since there is a dearth of Bones and Bones Black minis with hand crossbows (or with crossbows in general, for that matter), he is my go-to mini when I need a Spy NPC - which favor shortswords and hand crossbows in 5e.

  7. I have never watched Critical Role.


    I don't have strong opinions about the existence of Critical Role.


    I do, however, have strong opinions about the fact that I don't have an interest in learning about/gaming in yet another new setting.


    I hope that the model won't be for every sourcebook to introduce a new setting.


    I hope that they also expand on previously introduced settings.


    The sourcebooks for Eberron, Forgotten Realms, Ravenloft (if you count Curse of Strahd as a Ravenloft sourcebook), and Ravnica felt sparse.

    Yes, that's exactly how it works.You can make several purchases and pay for them each time, then once the PM closes and they are ready to ship, the system combines all the orders into one shipment (for a lot of us, a BIG shipment [I think mine was 37 pounds])

    Does anybody know how this impacts shipping?


    Each separate purchase I have made so far has also added a separate shipping fee.


    I'm wondering if I could cut down on shipping by purchasing all at once.
