Re: Monotheism vs Polytheism

I think the polytheism seen in most D&D worlds stems mostly from the source material the game was originally drawn from. I don't have easy access at the moment to the suggested reading list included in the First Edition AD&D DMG, but if memory serves, the Robert E Howard Conan stories, Micha...

Re: Check In Everyone!

I'm here. Actually more here than usual. After working for a few weeks from home, I have been temporarily furloughed from my job. Supposedly we will be returning to working from home next week. Either way, seeing as work is slow and I'll be working from home, I should have more time to spend here. I...

Re: Mobile phones

Can we make a pact, here and now, all of us, not to make calls from our mobile phones while in the bathroom? I wish he had said not to take selfies while in the bathroom. It has become so common place now. :sucks: Selfies in the bathroom might be a thing because that's the only place many folks hav...

Two gifts for worldbuilders

Hi, everyone. I've been away for a while - real-world stuff has kept me busy - but I do think of this place often, and I will be back when the smoke clears. That being the case, I have posted two gifts for the world-builders among us in the DM's section, but I am posting them here, too, because non-...

Re: Best Wife Ever!

On the subject of awesome wives, I humbly submit an incident that took place a few weeks ago. Kath and I took a trip to New Orleans for our 20th wedding anniversary. About two weeks before the trip, she pointed out that the AirBnB we would be staying at on 4/28 did not have a TV, so I wouldn't be ab...

Preacher

I enjoyed the show Preacher in AMC, which prompted me to read the comics.
I like the comics even more.
But I've finished them, and now I'm looking for something similar to read. Any recommendations?

Re: How long from time found, to reality??

I'm thinking that the quality of the steel would not the limiting factor, but rather the skill-set of the armorer. It is no small feat to construct the pieces necessary to build the articulation joints required for a working set of plate armor. And even if you are able to produce the pieces, you sti...

Thieves' Cant - Codes

I don't know how accurate these are, but I do know that there was/is a written code used by hobos to pass messages to other hobos.
It's relevant here because of hobos can do it, why not thieves?

Re: Paladins and 'one on one' challenges?

When i initially thought this question up, i was more in thinking, that after a severe beatdown on several of the PC's, the paladin might make the challenge TO the BBEG LE guy, as a means to try and save them.. Again, this reflects an attitude of defeatism, and negotiation from a position of weakne...

Implausible map?

I'm posting this because it's about a place near and dear to my heart, and also because I am a big proponent of making sure that the little details of a game world are plausible, so as to make the implausible things more believable. A game designer has offered a critique of a map for being unrealist...
