Re: Kill the Cleric?

For me, the divine magic system that'd be truest to Appendix N literature (I've read some of the authors' works but, admittedly, far from all) would be one where gods grant gifts or boons to individuals for good work, simple caprice, or whatever. These gifts could be given to individuals of any clas...

Re: Kill the Cleric?

I could easily see divine magic being rolled in to magic in general. At least one "real world" magical tradition (Enochian magic) treats divine magic more as essentially formulaic. That's not to say that a magic-user can't have genuine faith, it's just that he doesn't need it to cast divine spells (...

Re: On saving throws

These days I'm intrigued by the idea of using ability scores as saves (which is what C&C does I think). I don't know what all the ability scores are for DCC RPG (I know we have Agility, Stamina, and Luck), but I like the idea of rolling Stamina to resist poisons, Agility to dodge area attacks, and L...

Re: Challenging the stereotype

Delurking for a bit ... I don't mind 3e saves, although lately I've been warming up to the idea of using each ability score as a save (I think this is in C&C?). A Str save would be done to avoid paralyzation, holds, etc., a Con save would be done to resist disease, fatigue, etc., and so on. Each cla...

Re: Hero’s Handbook: Tieflings

I've been meaning to pick up both the Tiefling book and the Eladrin book, and this sample definitely seals the deal for me. It looks like it'll have a lot of neat info on devils I can use for my game.

Re: What are the top 10 things you love about 4E?

In no particular order: The implied "points of light" setting. The new cosmology. The prevalence of movement, positioning, and repositioning in combat. Ease of prep for DMs. A clear discussion of expected roles in combat. Many distinct, conceptually strong classes. Increased focus on teamwork. Monst...

Hero's Handbook: Tieflings in the final editing stage, and I'll be writing Hero’s Handbook: Half-Orc starting in the next week or so. Gnomes are defi...

Re: Nice work!

I picked up the dragonborn book and I think it's really good, too. The mood of the dragonborn in this book is unapologetic and strong, but also slightly sad and bittersweet. The eladrin book should also be cool. I'd like to see similar books for all the races, but especially tieflings, gnomes (4e's ...

Re: How is the 4e products selling?

While I don't have the inside numbers, I'd say that given the recent rounds of licensing announcements, if Goodman is doing well enough to be expanding, their 4E products must be doing at least "okay" and perhaps "very, very well." When you look at it, there really isn't any competition for 3pp 4E ...

I want to see a Martial Controller. Something like a reverse warlord - an individual whose intricate plans, uncanny foresight, or penetrating understanding of psychology stymie foes and/or break their wills.

Re: Ship Dates for 4E Modules

I think the new covers are great. I guess I have a mild preference for changing up the color of the borders (I don't mind white, I just like a variety of colors :) ), but that's really nothing too big. The only thing I absolutely don't like is that I have to special order them, because I don't want ...

Re: Ship Dates for 4E Modules

The hobby trade will get these modules before the book chains, and even then the book chains are ordering light because these modules don't have spines (e.g., stapled binding). You can still place special orders, and some book chains have placed orders. Our later releases for this year, the ones wi...

I really hope that 3rd party companies area able to use the default gods of 4e. The default gods are very flavorful and are a better fit than the current Aereth pantheon, IMO. Having said that, I've read a recent post by someone on D&D's brand team that implied that some monsters (the example was th...

Yes. Also, depending on how the GSL is worded, I'd like to look at merging the core D&D pantheon w/ Áereth. We'll see how that shakes out. I hope that works out! I like the 4e pantheon and think it's a good fit for Aereth. And here's to hoping you can use Drow, Yuan-ti, etc. Re: Warforged, IMC I'd ...

It's probably about as dependent on minis as 3e was. Now having said that, I, personally, wouldn't play either edition without minis - I just love them too much. :)
