Re: Diversity changes

So you're mad because you cannot say the n-word without being labeled racist? You want the 'freedom' to use that word as much as you want without consequence? Why is that?

Also enforced by whom? The police? Do you think you'll be thrown in prison for saying that word?

Yeah, that was the very first issue, where they upgraded to 3.5E.

Re: Diversity changes

So being labeled a "bigot, racist, sexist, etc.," offends you? Aren't you then defining those words as 'offensive?'

Re: Divine alignment stability

Order of the Stick is still 3rd Edition. Which kind of highlights how long that comic has been running, as 3E has been defunct for 11 years now. (Looking it up, it seems Order of the Stick is a whopping 17 years old! Man, it's almost old enough to vote. Oh, now I feel really old...) Anyway, as for y...

Re: Diversity changes

That they focus on innocent words when they could be focusing on more important features Such as...? Also, words are not always so innocent. They can do real harm when abused. Even very minor stuff, like the words in a D&D book, can add up over time. "Negro" is actually Spanish for &q...

Re: Diversity changes

Hahaha, that's so faqing ridiculous Which part is ridiculous, and what is ridiculous about it? (and Ezmerelda is not a name, the name is Esmeralda, and its Spanish not Romanian thus not vistani) It's something you see a lot in high fantasy, though. You take a real name, change or add/remove a few l...

Re: Diversity changes

I don't have either of those adventures, nor have I run or played in them, but these changes sound fine to me. I understand they hired an actual Romani advisor for the changes to Curse of Strahd.

Re: Opinions on Premade Settings

For those of you who do steal from other settings, what kind of stuff to you steal? For me, it's maps. I rip off maps constantly, from just about everywhere. Not just modules, but even videogames. I once ran an entire dungeon from Skyrim. It's not that I can't draw maps; I mean, I can't draw them we...

Re: Opinions on Premade Settings

The only setting I've run actual campaigns in that wasn't homebrewed is Dragonlance. I've run modules that take place in Greyhawk or Forgotten Realms, but that's it. And I do put a lot of effort into making sure my Dragonlance games are true to the lore. I'll spend hours on the wiki, making sure I g...

Re: What's worse than drunk players? Yup

Can't say that was ever a problem for me. Then again, the last time I played a face-to-face game was back when I and my players were too young to drink anyway.

Re: Campaign defining encounters

I've known far too many group like that, which is often why Charisma is a dump stat, AND they don't bother with languages... One of the games I'm running is just a series of 2E FR modules. It's for my 'old school' group. We started with Doom of Daggerdale, moved on to The Accursed Tower, and just s...

Re: Campaign defining encounters

Pretty cool, and to be honest, I would be reluctant to kill normally animalistic creatures that had gain sentience as well. Oh, yeah, same here. But this particular party tended to solve any and every problem with violence. The only time they'd even consider parleying is if the enemy were to bring ...

Re: Campaign defining encounters

I've had that happen to me a few times. The most memorable was on one of my homebrew worlds (the monotheistic one I mentioned in the Monotheism vs. Polytheism thread). The party encountered two tribes of humans that were gearing up to go to war with each other. After some investigation on their part...

West March Style Game

Have you guys ever heard of a West March style game? Or ever participated in something like that? What do you think of it? I admit, a part of it sounds appealing to me, in that it's a great workaround to having multiple players who can't always meet up consistently to game. On the other hand, a game...
