  1. Playing it military style

    To all GMS and Players out there (and please put your perspective), do you give (get) bonuses for doing a thorough reconnaissance and adequate planning and practice (Think Oceans 11, their practice runÖ) If so, what do you do? Lower the difficulty? Amount of hits needed?

    Having said that, I do mean recon and planning like the true military do. As a player, Iíve taken several GMs by surprise by trying to play it by using recon and strategy which I donít get because I really enjoy ...

  4. 5e playtest: 45 min glance 1st impressions (3.x hardliners have finally won the flame war)

    I'll put that into more context as I go on, but this is the first of my feedback/impressions/etc... regarding the playtest released by WOTC for 5th edition.

    A bit of foreshadowing, at first glance, it seems as though the game has gone back to a more 3.x mentality/mechanic rather than progressing forward to something new and innovative. To me, that is why have a new edition, and why adopt one. Sooo... let's go back in history.
