Just realized I probably should have posted this here instead of in Gamer Talk :/

I've been on a kick lately of reading about the history of D&D and RPG gaming.

So far, I've read (and highly recommend):

  • Playing at the World by Jon Peterson
  • Empire of Imagination: Gary Gygax and the Birth of Dungeons & Dragons by Michael Witwer
  • Designers & Dragons (4 volume set) by Shannon Appelcline

I've heard (and therefore have ordered) good things about Of Dice and Men: The Story of Dungeons & Dragons and the People Who Play It by David M. Ewalt

Are there any other really good histories of D&D and RPG gaming anyone can recommend?

The bard's Bardic Performance ability is normally a standard action.

At 7th level, a bard can start a bardic performance as a move action instead of a standard action. At 13th level, a bard can start a bardic performance as a swift action.

Is there an official rule somewhere that says if you can still use the 'lesser' action type if you want? I.e., can a 13th level bard still start a bardic performance as a standard or move action instead of as a swift, or *must* he use the swift action?

If there is no OFFICIAL rule on this, maybe we can click the FAQ link ...

Does anyone know of well done Pathfinder versions of Tomb of Horrors, Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth, and White Plume Mountain?

I'd love to run those as part of a future Pathfinder campaign!

New Paths 9: The Priest from Kobold Press!

Your Faith Shall Be Your Weapon.

Like a cleric, a priest is called to serve divine powers. But unlike a cleric, a priest enters the field of battle armed only with the divine might of her god. A priest’s connection to her deity forms the very core of her being—and through this unwavering reverence, she gains her power and her strength.

New Paths 9: The Priest brings a non-battle, caster-only servant of the divine to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game!

Let clerics have their hierarchies and temples: a priest ultimately answers only to her god. It is both a freedom and a heavy burden—but with it comes great power!

Features:

  • Access to more domains and the ability to cast more than one domain spell
  • Full divine (cleric/oracle) spell casting using a unique casting mechanic
  • More domains and can cast either 1 or 2 bonus domain spells per
  • Divine Gift class ability which allows the priest to perform various divine acts at a moments notice
  • Improved Channeling
  • Sacred Bond
  • New feats (including Powerful Channel)
  • A new archetype: Chosen of Nature
  • ... and more

I recently purchased a number of sets of Chessex Gold & Ruby Glitter Dice, including 2 of the large multi dice bags. This got me an big, awesome collection of these dice, but it also means I ended up with more D20's and D10's than I needed.

SO ... I'm offering them up to my fellow dice enthusiasts! :)

The dice look really AWESOME in person!!! They actually sparkle in the light when you turn them in your hand - very cool!

Kobold Playtest: Macabre Substitutions in Barovia

Very cool article!

"This summer, I decided to run The Curse of Strahd for my three players. The party consists of a fighter and a pair of rangers. Aside from low-level ranger spellcasting, the party has almost no access to magic. The intent of this campaign is to set a tone of truly Gothic horror from the first encounter on. As this is a sunless, colorless, and soulless land, I needed monsters that created paranoia, fear—and, ultimately, horror. Part of this lies in the deadliness of encounters when there is no healing magic; the other part lies in using effective monsters.

At the same time as we initiated play, my Tome of Beasts arrived! Upon reading the stories of several monsters, it struck me that I could piece them together in my own version of Barovia as they are perfect for creating Gothic horror. The monsters are: the mylings, the beggar ghouls, and the drowned maiden…"

Speaking of the Tome of Beasts Pawn Collection ... even if you only play Pathfinder, this collection of 300 pawns is still perfect for you. There are many creatures from the Southlands Bestiary, Midgard Bestiary, various Kobold Press adventures etc. Plus, they can always double for other creatures - who doesn't need 300 new pawns? :)

As some of you may know, I’m a full-blown, grade A, no apologies, Dice Geek!

Lately I've been wanting a cool set of wood dice. I did some searching and came across Artisan Dice, including the Kickstarter they did a while back. They look pretty beautiful in the pictures but also seem REALLY over priced though! I mean, I know wood dice is pretty niche, and I'd expect to pay a bit more for them, but wow! $150 or more for a set of dice? That's pretty nuts ...

So, my first question is, has anyone actually gotten dice from them, in particular any of their wood dice? If so, were you happy? Were they worth that kind of money?

Has anyone found wood dice (full sets, not just wooden d6's) out there more reasonably priced?

Thanks!!!

I just finished listening to NPR (Studio 360) and the final 10-15 minutes was an awesome segment on D&D/RPGs and Alignment.

Very interesting and worth checking out. The entire episode was good, so I suggest just listening to the entire thing, but if you just want the Alignment segment, skip forward to the last maybe 15 minutes or so.

Question about Event Trading ...

Should I see my event trade proposal somewhere until it gets accepted?

A few times now, I've done an event trade proposal, and it's appeared under the My Proposed Trades tab for a little while then it vanishes. I then see my proposed trade(s) under the All Available Trades tab for a short time (I know they are mine because there is a note saying I can cancel the proposed trade any time up to it being accepted) but then it vanishes from here as well ...

Is this normal or is something happening to my trade proposals?

Thanks!

Crystal, amethyst, sapphire, emerald, topaz, and the Ruby Dragon Sardior himself - gem dragons have been part of D&D since the earliest days.

Ed Greenwood says: "There's something cool about dragons. A special sort of cool. Great power, hubris, magic, wits to match the adventurers' own. Any Dungeon Master can always use a new dragon, either a detailed individual or entirely new sorts of dragons. In Gem Dragons of Faerûn, you get both.

"Gem dragons have been around for a long time, but this is the best and most detailed (and, of course, 5th Edition) treatment of them I've ever laid eager DM's eyes on, and I met an old friend in its pages. Lovingly worked into the fabric of the Realms and fully realized for any D&D campaign, these wyrms are ready to leap off the pages and into your campaign. A winner! Two talons way, way up!"

I looked at my calendar this morning and saw that the great Gary Gygax died 8 years ago today. I thought it would be nice to take a moment of silence (or, better yet, toll a D20) in honor of the guy that created it all.
