I with you guys on the FB thing. I dropped it, but I've jumped back on. I used it for talking to "muggles" but used G+ for my gaming connections. Now I'm using Twitter for my gaming connections. But nothing satisfies like a forum.

General Discussion / Katherine Kurtz--Deryni Rising
« on: January 09, 2019, 01:35:12 PM »
Has anyone read any of Katherine Kurtz's novels (in particular The Chronicles of the Deryni or The Legends of Camber of Culdi)? I've picked up the two series and wondered if it was worth the investment of time.


WotC D&D / Create your own 5e spellbooks
« on: January 04, 2019, 09:34:48 AM »
I found a very cool website that allows you to select the specific spells your character has in his or her repertoire and then print them out. It saves a lot of rifling through the PHB or buying expensive spell cards.

Thanks for the responses. I like the new iteration of D&D, but unlike when I started playing back in the day with BX and AD&D (even with the TSR modules), it seems like I need to have a masters in FR history to play. WOTC really seems fixed on the FR. It's this sort of detail that sort of turns me off of playing Pathfinder with a local group of (good) folks. I don't have a clue (or want it, frankly) about factions and guilds and blah, blah, blah.... Just point me towards the adventure!

Well, scupper my jibs, I'll load that up on the ol' podcast player and give it an ear. Happy new year!

With the impending death of G+, I figured forums like this would pick up again. Where has everyone gone?

Yeah, I'm not sure the D&D cartoon needs that much attention. Never watched it as a kid, and tried to watch it with my kids when they were younger. All of us gave it the thumbs down.

I sent Jay a question about downloading:
Okay, I can see how it might not be intuitive, but if one wanted to
download the file directly - you just need to click on the "article"
title - "Crypt of the Vampire" for this example and it would take you
to this page: http://www.nostalgiavomit.com/2018/10/27/crypt-of-the-vampire/

There you have the option to listen to in the browser, new window, or
just download the file like you were talking about.

I'll see about making that options more obvious for the future, but
for now the option is there! I hope that helps!

You're right, Mike. I don't see a download button. I will send Jay an email. Maybe he can add one. It's very good. I'm glad he is back.
Speaking of nostalgia, I'm re-listening to SOD. Ah...the good old days. 😉

Just wanted to let folks know that Jay (formerly of The Delvers podcast) has created another pod called Nostalgia Vomit. Jay is doing his magic with recording his play of game books (like Fighting Fantasy). If you liked The Delvers, I think you'll enjoy his new creation: http://www.nostalgiavomit.com

WotC D&D / 5e campaigns
« on: October 19, 2018, 10:34:37 AM »
Just wondering out loud here. I've been playing 5e with a school group and everything we've played has been from the WOTC stable of adventures in the Forgotten Realms. It's fun, but I don't want to read 50 pages of history just so I can go and kill some orcs. Is there anyone out there just making or running adventures that aren't tied to these official backgrounds? Does anyone else dislike this FR overkill? Am I just a grumpy Monk?
