Re: A question...

It depends upon clever the barbarian is being, doesn't it?

(And how many friends his Ancestral Calling brings to side...)

And that's a Barbarian/Thief you're up against. (Thank you class and a half!)

Re: A question...

Some construe anything remotely possible as "sexism" to be political, regardless of intent. Yes, there are those who don't feel truly alive unless they think that they are being offended.

Re: A question...

There have been other games that made the choice matter -- or have we forgotten the lower overall Strength score (excluding drow) for female PCs in AD&D 1st edition? That was just mirroring a physical reality translated into physical stats needed to play the game. It wasn't a social/political posit...

Re: My Obligatory House Rules Post

Thanks for reading. As for house rules- I try very hard to keep it to a minimum. This isn't Pathfinder, after all. But I do have more.

In Of Gods and Monsters , each deity is given a special ability that is available to all worshippers of the deity. I altered ...

In addition, every character has a number of Wounds equal to his CON score. Hit points represent a character’s reservoir of lu...

So I'm looking at the free pdf for D&D Next and I am wondering:

Black Libram of Nartarus

I owned this gem at one point and financial troubles forced me to sell it. Now it appears out of print and even Amazon doesn't have a copy. Any ideas on where I could get a copy or if the Troll Lords plan on putting it back into print soon. I really loved this book.

Rune Lore

I have always liked rune magic and I'm curious about Rune Lore. However, the reviews of it on Amazon are rather scathing. The most troubling complaint is that it is a setting book with very little in the way of rules for the runes and their use. In fact, one reviewer claims that the runes detailed i...
