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!

I have not played Gamma World.  I think I missed the boat on that one back in the day.  If the older (better?) versions show up on DTRPG, I will buy them and have a look.

More and more product is coming out for 5E.  I only buy PDFs, and am very annoyed that the core books are print-only.  I'm not going to spend $105 to buy the three core books from Amazon in a format I don't like, thanks.  If there were $10 DTRPG PDFs, I'd already be playing them, and buying the accessories they DO publish on DTRPG.

Anyone know why 5E is not being published digitally?  Anyone know when it might be in the future?


I am really enjoying listening to this one.

Thanks for moving letters to their own podcasts!

« on: May 04, 2017, 05:55:21 AM »
Yes, thanks for the chance.  I was sad it looked like SOD was wrapping up, and thrilled when you came back with the new show.

1.  AD&D Second Edition.  Core books, just the PHB, your favourite splat book - whatever portion you have played and can talk about without too much prep work.

2.  Advanced Fighting Fantasy - the tabletop RPG based on the classic choose-your-own-adventure style Fighting Fantasy gamebooks.

3.  BECMI or the RC - I know you already covered parts of it, but if you want to expand or revisit, I would like to hear what your new cast has to say.  Preferably without that clown you had on last time you covered a red box.  :)

4.  Traveller.

5.  AD&D First Edition.

WotC D&D / Re: New versions of B1 and B2

I wondered what they would do to pad out 32-page modules that used to come in folders into enough content to justify a hardback price.

It is interesting that WotC is licensing this kind of thing to Goodman.
