Re: What edition did you start with?

... and still is, surprisingly. Instead of releasing an neverending stream of player-option splatbooks, they're releasing modules. Just like OD&D! However, a character who multiclasses just right in 5e can easily become broken. Strangely enough, I find that 5E was the easiest edition NOT to multicl...

Re: What edition did you start with?

I'm not sure that's fair. Of course it wasn't fair, I was just being a jerk. I had to buy the 4E basic books out of nostalgia, but I knew that I would never play it, my kids were just toddlers and my old gaming buddies had no more regular time to spend with us and each other. I probably would have ...

Re: Detailed Encounter Map Instructions in Adventure Module

Did they all meet in a tavern, or the Cantina from Tattooine? Heh! Yes and no. They're all outcasts of some sort. Triton is from the Sea of Fallen Stars, nowhere near the Sword Coast and the North where everything is happening. He's literally a fish out of water. He's on a bit of a personal quest t...

Re: Greetings from the Forge!

We would love to compile beautiful customer build pictures from here, maybe you guys can point me in the right direction to find those? There is a "Castle Builds" thread in the KS4 post-campaign sectin of the forums where, I think, most of the build photos are concentrated. There are many more scat...

Re: GMing Style

I plan to do something more direct. In our current campaign (Storm King's Thunder), at the end of the module our characters will have NO HOPE IN HECK of defeating the big bad all by themselves. So I plan to have the current party of 4 meet up with their previous party of 4 (from Out of the Abyss), a...

Re: What edition did you start with?

My current gaming group has been playing 3.5 weekly since 2009. Just last night we started discussing trying 4th Edition. Under NO circumstances should you try 4th edition. The mechanics reduced it to a card game. And forget "theatre of the mind", EVERYTHING is measured out in squares, not actual d...

Re: Detailed Encounter Map Instructions in Adventure Module

(I'm calling their adventuring group "The Thundercats" because for some reason they have a fairly common theme through all their characters that either involves lightning/thunder powers and/or cat traits/companions.) Great name! :lol: Things came together quite accidentally. We're using some playte...
