OAR #6 Temple of Elemental Evil

So Goodman Games is working with WOTC to produce 5th Edition updates to several classic modules. They include commentary, interviews, usually a couple of full re-prints/scans of the several printings of the modules (that had changes) so you can compare them; and a 5th Edition version of the adventur...

Re: What Video Game(s) are you playing

Just started playing Inquisitor: Martyr. Only a few levels in but like the story/game play so far.

Re: Missing 1st Ed Cleric Spells

Was just reading about Chant in AD&D. Playing a cleric and was looking at what options are available. Agree that Snake and Speak should be in the Druid realm, The thing with Chant is - I think in AD&D it was stackable with Bless and then with the 3rd level Prayer. It gives a +1 to hit and damage, wi...
