Re: Official D&D 5th Edition for Fantasy Grounds 2

Yeah, the groups I play in use Roll 20 or Maptools. C&C is easy enough that it doesn't really need a "rules set". As for 5E, I am playing it on Thursdays, and the more I play it the less I am liking it, so... Same thing happened to me. I got the box set and loved what i saw, downloaded the basic ru...

Re: Should clerics have a d10 hit die?

Hit die should be based on race instead of class. I was of this mind for a while too, and wouldn't freak out of someone wanted to play with such rules. But then I decided that since HP is an abstraction, not just meat (size/strength,etc) that it must come from somewhere else. I decided that somewhe...

Re: Adventurer rations/provisions

US hunting was the land of plenty after we committed genocide to the natives... over populated Europe might be harder to live by hunting, but most fantasy worlds filled with monsters must have plenty of game... so hunt and fish should be easy hunting if you want an all meat diet... get the Druid in...

Re: I love Shadowrun, but...

I don't know what it is, getting old and lazy, or what, but the new 5th edition is just getting so bogged down with rules minutiae that I am not buying anymore books for it. All I see is my brain melting from all the rules details, just like I did back with 3E, and I am not going down that road aga...

Re: Most disliked / over used monster

I agree with that but also add that I am sick of every game broup I run or see at the FLGS having at least one CN drow ranger that has been forced to flee from his/her home and reside on the surface.

Re: Miniatures murder roleplay.

I use mini's for combat. There typically is very little to zero role play in combat, with or without mini's. With mini's, and terrain, you can climb up on top of a rock outcropping, and then leap onto the backs of the Dark Unicorn, stabbing it, then making a DEX check to become an instant bronc bus...

Yep. According to Tolkien's description the "wizards" were more like Solar's or demi-Gods. There were no wizards, in the D&D sense, in Middle Earth.
Angels actually.
