Discord isn't for me.  I bet it would be a great collaboration tool for my development work, but I like forums for hobby chats.

Sounds cool.  I wonder why no pdfs?

True enough.  I just like their relative anonymity.

I'm waiting patiently for 5E core PDFs to start in on it.  No idea why they are holding those back.

I think you are right.

Thanks for answering.

Has anyone seen or heard of the mighty Thorkie lately?

As for the rest of you ... are you still posting?  If so, where?

I find the Kindle Paperwhite 3 to be the best reader for pdfs.  For tablets ... 7 or 8 inch works for me.  Depends how much zooming you are willing to do.

I thought I wouldn't like it.  Then I didn't notice it.

Removing them *sounds* unnatural, but as I am used to conversations with groups of guys all cutting each other off and talking over each other, so the end result is actually very natural to my ears.

General Discussion / Problem with high-level spells
« on: December 15, 2017, 02:41:38 PM »
Hi folks.

Since I was a young fellow, high level spells (7-9) have always given me a love/hate relationship with D&D.

Demihuman level limits block them from getting the cool spells, even the supposedly magical elves.

Humans can get there, but by the time they do, the game is somewhat broken - the risk of low-level gaming is mostly gone, and boredom sets in.  Many people espouse retiring characters somewhere between levels 9 and 14, nowhere close to level 8 and 9 spells!

This drives me crazy sometimes.

Have you folks ever seen a game or house rule that would fix this for me?  Some way of giving lower-level characters access to the highest-level spells, so that whatever level they bump their heads on doesn't deny them the cool end-game toys?

Does 3E fix this?

I know there are a lot of Texans on this board.  I hope you are all safe and doing well in this stormy season.

I remain a SOD/SFH fan.

It may be that we have mostly exhausted D&D topics.  It has been 20+ years since TSR published something I wanted to read!

I also avoid Facebook etc.

I think it has something to do with fears over piracy or digital cannibalizing print sales.  Some people/companies haven't learned the lesson yet that started years ago with pirated music - sell it, or someone will provide it free.  I'm just not willing to break the law to get digital gaming books - if I cannot get them legally, I do without ... I already have an insurmountable "to read" pile that thanks to humble bundle now includes most of Traveler, Chapmions, Pathfinder and Fighting Fantasy ... I may not live long enough to get to 5E anyway, and I'm only 39!
