Re: D&D 5th Edition Discussion

Sounds like their profit margins on D&D 5e were not enough for Hasbro to allow it to exist, especially compared to Magic: The Gathering and other stuff. Which is a shame. In my opinion, if it's still turning a profit, then you're best off keeping it alive. Corporate hatchetmen prefer short-term qua...

Re: StarSiege Relaunch

So is this game dead other that being able to buy the core rules or will we see some effort to revive it at some point?

Re: D&D 5th Edition Discussion

So WotC is going to kill their Forums. Say people today do not need a forum to discuss a companies products or to aid the company communicate with their fan base. Twitter is good enough. :roll:

Wonder how long it will be before they close the web site itself. :lol:

Re: Mongoose Traveller Core Beta

I bought the Beta and for the most part liked the changes made. Few small details that were odd.

I will reserve judgement for the ship system until I get to look at it. Same goes for the vehicle creation system. Neither are in the core rule book.

Re: Dice, bags and boxes

Great to see the ol' CR bag make an appearance. Crown Royal - The Official Dicebag of The OSR. -SJ That was the first dice bag I ever owned. A friend's father gave him one and a while later gave me one. It wasn't until later I found out it was because he was drinking what came in the bag. :lol:

Re: Zombicide Black Plague

Yes, I get that if you don't have the money, $100 is a lot of money. But when you figure it comes out to less than .60 a figure, the cost vs value is not bad. Add in that you get the game itself (if you want to play it) and the value at $100 is really not bad. Of course if you are sick like I am you...

Zombicide Black Plague

Just a quick nod to the Zombicide Black Plague kick starter. If you have not checked this one out you should. The number of interesting PC/NPC and Monster figures makes this a great deal for those who might want to use miniatures in their RPGs as well.

Re: Is C&C a d20 game?

Saying pathfinder and C&C are both d20 games might be true on some level, but I can say with lots of experience in 3.X/Pathfinder that they are not the same. They share some elements for sure. They have the same 6 attributes for example. But in my mind, I would not have added C&C on a list of d20 ga...
