    My son (age 8) told me today that The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds are the best Wells books. Coincidentally the two he's read!

    Hey all, I'm new here. I'm loving me some good old fashioned OSR. Based in Straya where people are too busy fighting dropbears to roleplay

    Shit, some of my hardcore players would like to continue my old Eberron campaign. I'm ambivalent. Could do it, but wanted to try new stuff.

    Fact: D&D5 is right up there with Cypher when it comes to "fun character creation." No idea whether I'll ever get to run either

    In movies it's all about the cool solo duel against the bad guy, but in tactical tabletop RPGs, superior numbers is usually best for NPCs.

      I don't get the appeal of that archetype, personally. I guess it was alright with Monsieur Mallah in Doom Patrol.

      @Shipyard Locked speaking strictly for myself: (1) "gorilla" in Portuguese is derogatory slang for the military, dating back to Brazil's junta govt. (1968-1985); (2) EP takes itself too seriously; (3) fuck yeah Doom Patrol

      The original Doom Patrol was one of the best comics ever! Name another series that ended with the team getting killed.

    I feel choosing magic items for a D&D setting is as much about what you DON'T put in as what you do. Making those hard choices now.

      Even better, make up your own so they aren't the overly familiar same-old same-old taken off a list your players have likely perused if not memorized.

    It looks like work is about to get crazy busy; I'm likely to be far less active than I have been, for a while.
