    I don't recall if it was explicitly stated, but the matter was resolved parallel to Narratio, the second adventure. Investigating the party's failure to return, Fell sent scouts to Norin Trugvad who encountered the monster. He passed news of it to Eskaton, where Bishop Faintsong sent a group of...

    Confirmatio will begin three days after the end of Propositio. Send a message if there's anything you want to let me know about what your characters have been up to during that interval.

    I was answering a letter from Seadogstyle tonight and it brought home the fact that I've been swinging back forth between starting Confirmatio three days after the end of Propositio and starting it three weeks after the end. Three days is just enough time to have Fell's funeral. In three weeks,...

    One question: Have you guys made your aforementioned jump to the 4.0 system, or should I be creating my character with the 3.5 system in mind? Also, what level do you want my character to be for submission purposes?

About Me
Biography:
I like D&D. I dig 4e as a DM or player;
3.5 is a solid system, but I could never play a game that started out at a level lower than 4;
can't tell you why, but disliked 2e;
I like 1e, but have played it to death and am almost bored with it at this point. The only way I could play is with oriental adventures. I always wanted to try out a kensai, but never got the opportunity.

Gurps looks cool, but complicated.

Played palladium games (heroes unlimited and ninjas and superspies) but only a couple of sessions.

Made a character for shadowrun (but that's as far as the game went).

I wasn't a fan of rolemaster.

Really getting into HERO 6e.

Genre-wise, I like high-fantasy, but any fantasy setting is fine. Genre-mixing is fun. I.e. ninjas in a medieval setting does not upset me, it intrigues me.

I would like to go for a more in-depth super hero campaign though. Maybe something like the eXiles comic. Traveling through dimensions to prevent bad stuff from turning the world upside down.

I am an engineer, so game mechanics not only make sense to me (don't have to explain rules to me), but I also really like solid mechanics. Also, for someone who is unclear about rules systems, I am pretty good at conveying how they work.

I used to play all the time, but that was a long time ago. Thanks to this site, have hooked up with some online gamers. Things didn't turn out, but I will probably find another online game.

D&D next playtest feedback: rogue class/skill system

by yukonhorror on 05-30-2012 at 04:17 PM
so I forgot to really comment on my opinions regarding the skill system, so will do that in addition to assessing the rogue/halfling as a whole.

Again, I like the racial bonuses do damage dice on certain weapons. Especially for dagger, cause normally it is worthless as a weapon.

Regarding skills and background, I said I like them, but I really like the freeformness of skills. Using what makes sense as a check and have the player roll. The background (and class in this

D&D next playtest feedback: classes as a whole, fighter in specifics

by yukonhorror on 05-29-2012 at 11:22 AM
I am going to do my best and stay objective. It is nice to see the thingy from mike mearls regarding intention. I think it helps to provide constructive feedback. By knowing his motivations, I can properly assess his implementation.

Let's walk through the fighter (in the context of all the classes) section by section.

Regarding AC and HP, these are obviously relative. Without yet playing, I cannot assess if the target was hit, but one must keep in mind the balancing

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

by yukonhorror on 05-25-2012 at 01:54 AM
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.

I grew up on 1st edition AD&D. loved
