Episode 499

Don't you all think this all comes down to communication? You keep wanting to put it on the player being good enough to morph their stated objectives into something that will work for the table. Why not just communicate and inform them that the character as submitted will not work and that their goa...

Re: Episode 497

You know, you keep pushing the goal posts further and further back. We've gone from any system, to complex systems, to specific complex systems, to 20th level wizards. Listen man, you do you. If you are having fun then that is what it is all about. I think that I and several people here have tried ...

Re: Episode 497

I am running a D&D 5E game where 3/5th of the group don't know the rules and I am not restricting any of their classes or concepts. We have a Sorceress with the kit from Xanathar's Guide to Everything, a Paladin of Torm, a Ranger with an animal companion, and a divination Wizard. Everything you...

Re: Episode 497

My other game no one knows the rules except the GM and he adds to them as well as change them in the middle of the game. Not only does it work, it's one of the best games I've ever played. It's deep, impactful, funny, tense. It's also something you can listen to so that you can see that even the ba...

Re: Episode 497

Games are about having fun and participating in cool stories with each other, they aren't about earning geek cred. Some people really love getting into it and learning every rule backwards and forwards, and some don't. It's only natural for the more learned players to mentor the new ones or less ac...

Re: Episode 497

Yeah, not helping people is absolutely not gatekeeping. I never said that people had to pass some kind of test in order to play the game. Heck, I personally am fine as long as people show they are making an effort after the first session (no, I don’t expect you to read a 300 page book before you eve...

Episode 497

I have a problem with the premise of the episode. Teaching people is great, however, anyone who expects to put in no effort and have someone teach them is an ass. Most people in gaming are not children. They can all read and typically understand a book. If they don't understand something, the intern...

Interview 41 - Charles Wellington

The crew was asking “The Beef” if people were intimidated by his setting and preparedness. This, I don’t understand. It’s a common convention to have a fantasy character be the least knowledgeable person in a scene. Maybe your character has never been more than a few miles from his home in his entir...

Forgive me, but I’ve used both and I can’t help but wonder what you mean. What feature of Map Tools is superior to Roll20?

Re: Episode 463: Winning the Consensus.

You have a very black and white opinion about dice. There's nothing explicit about rolling 8 for damage that says it has to be a particular type of strike- it could mean you slashed them in the shoulder, or stabbed them in the groin. Dice in a roleplaying game are all about interpretation. Some gam...
