I don't subscribe (my gaming time isn't substantial enough to justify keeping up that closely), so, if I may ask, how did the Insiders do with the tone and deadliness of the original?

We're doing RotRL in 5Ed, and we haven't been mapping, and I think it's because the areas involved are just too big for graph paper. Maybe if we were told what scale to use (1 square = 5, 10, 20, 30 feet) and where to start on the paper.

It's a little bit TOO TotM, and not enough grid.

I could never afford minis as a kid (and I coveted the entire Ral Partha line, trust me), so I even ran 3x TotM style (it's what I knew) until newer players used to (and in possession of) minis wanted to use the Chessex mat the way it was intended.

I think the secret door in the goblin stronghold in RotRL's first installment really brought home my problems with 3x games. My character tracked the goblin boss to the secret door, KNEW there was a secret door, and I rolled a three or something to "find" the secret door.

In AD&D, I would have just started describing everything I did until I found the latch. In 3x, I rolled a three, and there was nothing to be said after that.

Except, maybe, "I take 20"?

But there are cases where that is an issue. If you had a negative Perception (or Search) modifier and the DC to find it was >= 20, you would have been stopped there. Of course, not finding the way to open the door is different from not knowing there's a door there. That's why there's hardness and hit points for walls.

I rolled first. And failed. Didn't know you could take 20 after a failed roll, or I was so in my feelings I forgot. ;-)

I was going to run a 1st Ed campaign this year, set in Mystara, but it turned into a Pathfinder campaign. There was too much to convert. There was also some grumbling about how much harder it was to create certain character classes in 1st Ed and max levels, etc...

I would be amused by a 1st Ed conversion of Golarion. Thinge were so much more... final in 1st Ed. As others have echoed, it really only bears a passing resemblance to 3.5/Pathfinder. I think the thing I really miss are the feats and skills. We may have gone too far in the other direction (with too many feats) right now, but eliminating them entirely was a problem as well.

I would like to use the magic/leveling system from 1st Ed alongside the weapon expertise system from Mystara (Basic DnD). That, I think, would make for an interesting combat mechanic.

I started an AD&D campaign a while back, but the table didn't seem to be feeling it. With the modern versions of the game defining everything about your character on the sheet, having to actually think things out and not just roll a d20 to resolve EVERYTHING seemed like a chore to them. So, I just let the game die, I wasn't having fun. :-(

Edit: I'd play that, by the way. Sounds like a fun time. AD&D 1E and BECMI (Rules Compendium) are my two favorite iterations of D&D.

I've never played ToH or even read it or flipped through it.

So I know nothing about it. I've only heard it is death trap after death trap after death trap. So what I've heard might not even be accurate.

But if you do use 5th Ed., removing short rests will hinder some classes more than others. For example warlocks might only be potent for a single encounter and not be able to contribute much thereafter. Fighters and monks would have to "nova" a lot less often than designed.

Like I said, it's the oldest school of the old school modules. The entire thing is based on how carefully the players can navigate the tomb. Reckless power gamers die quickly, since there is almost nothing to overpower. People who just like to roll dice and not think about much die quickly, it's a thinking person's adventure. People who stock up on ten foot poles, spikes and hammers, and all of the old school goodies, go slow and steady, and never rush into stuff eventually have their souls sucked by the demi-lich at the end, since, invariably, they almost never have the right spells memorized.

If you run ToH straight, short rests, etc, will mean nothing. Most of the traps and stuff just kill you if you're not cautious. The hard part of running it in 5e is that the game, while it gives a nod to AD&D, isn't AD&D. They still have DCs, and a host of mechanical things that a die roll and not your brain will resolve.

Seriously, the only way to run it and get the full feel is to actually run it in AD&D. Everything from 3.0 on, even 5e, is written with modern sensibilities in mind, especially character mortality. AD&D (and OD&D) were written for a war gamers, and they didn't mind death as much. AD&D 2e and beyond were written for a completely different audience, with completely different expectations from the game.

I guess a kind of bad analogy would be trying to recreate the Roman chariot races, but with APCs. The drivers are way more protected from mistakes made in navigating. ;-)

To be honest, the ToH always sounded like an unmitigated grind of DM capriciousness and spite to me
Since a lot of it is not even "save or die," but just "die," that is a fairly accurate assessment.

It was specifically created FOR Gygax's players, you know, guys that came up through the wargaming ranks and played a game with story elements. They didn't care if their characters died, they cares that their brains could outsmart Gygax's brains. The guy that played Robilar just threw his orc army at the thing until he got to the end.

It was a different time. D&D was just a game back then, death was expected at one point or another, and a lot of the best moments (for people not emotionally invested in an imaginary avatar represented by a piece of paper) were goofy, silly deaths. FBG sold a crapload of all of the Grimtooth books for a reason, after all.

Don't project modern sensibilities onto Gygax's AD&D. The players back then were a different breed until non-wargamers started to get into the hobby bigtime.

I am thinking of replacing the no save death traps with something less lethal. And perhaps adding more monsters.

Why would you do that? The entire point of the module was to be nearly unbeatable. We used to use how people described their ToH experience to judge whether they were munchkins or worthy of our table.

Fair point, I do want to preserve the feel of the original module as much as possible.

I have a couple of players at my table that were not even born when that module was first published and are not used to that style of game. They know of the module by reputation only. Mostly we play Pathfinder APs, so that is what they are used to. Any advice on how to handle my situation?

We did pregens, never used it in a campaign. It's the most old school of old school modules, I'd use it as a "history of the game" moment and use AD&D rules or download OSRIC, and play it straight.

Why would I play a class built around a weapon? It's one of the dumbest base classes in Pathfinder. The Summoner keeps it from being the dumbest.

Again, everyone bought Pathfinder, which did nothing to fix any of 3x's problems. People spent a billion dollars to see a Star Wars movie that was basically the same movie from '77 with some better graphics and slightly different plot. I think you underestimate the current generation's love affair with recycled material.

The did because Wotc dropped 3.5. For fear of no longer being able to purchase 3.5. material. Paizo fills that niche quite nicely. I see no reason as a gamer to buy the same book again with new art and little to no changes. When I already have one. When I can get it for the SRD. I'm trying to look at this objectively. You keep looking at as if everyone will act like you do. Even then if Wotc had kept with 4E. Now with a edition that fixes the flaws. Paizo has to step it up a notch. Not rely on the same product and expect the same sales.

And using Star Wars. Really. The fans will go watch Star Wars en masse or any new thing about Star Wars because it's Star Wars. Pathfinder and rpgs are nowhere near as popular as something like Star Wars or Star Trek. I get what your saying but it's not the best example.

Scale is irrelevant. Right now, Pathfinder is the "Star Wars" of the RPG world.

My point wasn't that TTRPGs are as popular as movies. They aren't. They aren't as popular as the TV show Survivor, even. My point was that people will buy recycled stuff happily, in any genre or medium. The 2000's pop culture, so far, has just been recycling things from the previous two generations. Almost every movie is a sequel or a remake any more, new music is mostly dumbing down older music, even the biggest video game releases are mostly sequels.

Pathfinder is a 3x retro-clone. It was published so Paizo could keep publishing APs. It innovated nothing, fixed nothing, and that's fine. People liked 3x, it pretty much saved the hobby from even more obscurity and irrelevance, and it was a fun game. Nothing wrong with what Paizo is doing, but they aren't doing anything new and improved.

What "diversity" does Pathfinder have? The witch? Samurai? Ninjas? Gunslinger? Magus? Nothing new in any of them, nothing that hasn't been done before.

Oracle? Summoner? Inquisitor? Pfft.

Pathfinder turned a few cliches into base classes. Whoop-de-doo.

captain yesterday wrote:

It did fix 3.5 tho, the artwork is way better and more relatable, the character classes are more diverse and have way more options and feats, and the bestiaries are the best released for any edition.

Seems like improvement to me. :-)

Pathfinder hasn't quite reached the level of insanity 3x at the end achieved. The sheer volume of 3x materials just published by WotC is ridiculous. Trust me, there are more base classes, spells, feats, prestige classes, etc, in 3.x than Pathfinder. And WAR is horrible. I'd rather look at Lockwood paintings in my books, to be honest.

Mechanically, Pathfinder and 3x are identical. Shortening the skill list and CMB are quite minor as innovations go.

Paizo, like someone stated above, didn't "win" because they innovated anything, they "won" because someone (or a bunch of someones) at WotC screwed the pooch. Period. We'll see if 5e is just a placeholder to get to the 50th anniversary, or if it will help WotC get back some of their mojo, but Pathfinder is just the continuation of the edition published in 2000. It is 3x with different expanded base classes. The exact same disparities, lack of balance, and slog-fest high level combat. Same one or two encounters a session since combats take so long. Same "the powerful wizard is 23 because leveling is so fast, he can't even grow a proper beard yet" mechanics. Same problems with economy action.

Nothing changed, Paizo fans are just more fanatic than the average, it seems.

Does not a brand actually have a finite life? Like about 30-50 years-ish? I heard that D&D might have some problems because of the life of the brand.

As long as their closest competitor is named after an SUV, Dungeons & Dragons never has to worry about their brand name recognition being exceeded.

Considering that most people don't know a game called "Pathfinder" exists, but almost all of them have at least heard of "Dungeons and Dragons" pretty much proves your point. The name "Dungeons and Dragons" is worth more than all of the other TTRPGs combined in cache and recognition by a LONG shot.

I just can't see the same amount of gamers buying the same product again imo. Not without any of the flaws fixed. Espcially with 5E that did try to fix flaws. If a gamer dislikes caster/martial disparity, dislikes how long combats take at higher levels. The new core does nothing to fix that why would they switch.

A unchanged rehash I think is going to be a hard sell. I'm not saying it won't sell. But given that Paizo gives it away for free. All you need is one person buying a core rulebook. The rest of a gaming group take from the free SRD.

RPGs aren't fast food. Frankly, I doubt many RPG companies (including Paizo) can even remotely compete with a single McDonald's location.

They can't compete with a good console video game release. I'm just guessing, but it would probably take Paizo ten years (or more) to make what GTA V made in its first week ($800 million).

Pathfinder didn't grab part of the market by saying "buy the exact same game," they did it by saying "It's the game, with changes to make it better, and some backwards compatibility."

I would also appreciate the market research you did that shows Pathfinder 2e is more likely to fail than succeed.

The RPG market is a small, saturated market.

The chances of success for any game in this market are small; the chances of the same company succeeding twice are similarly small.

Look at how many games come and go quickly from start up companies.

Look at the recent major failures from big companies-- 4th edition D&D and the "New" World of Darkness that either did or nearly brought down established brands/companies.

Look at all the games with established IPs and fan bases that have churned through multiple company failures and have to be repeatedly rescued-- Battletech/ Mechwarrior, Shadowrun.

The first 3 editions of D&D came out in a different world where there was a lot less competition.

To think that Paizo could do a Pathfinder 2.0 that was competing with both 5e D&D, with the concept of just continuing to play Pathfinder, with all the other games out there you have to acknowledge that there are long odds of success.

There is far less TTRPG competition in the Paizo era than the AD&D era. Less game systems, less TTRPG companies,etc.

The difference is AD&D competed with Atari and the NES. Modern games, in a niche (at best) market, compete with Playstation, WoW, and arguing dumb stuff on Facebook.

He had two ok seasons, mostly with the former guy's players (a guy that needed to go, things get stale, but is currently finding success on a team that had less than he left Chip with when he arrived), then nose-dived once he got rid of a bunch of those players in favor of his hand picked replacements.

The NFL is about talent and coaching. If you have a Belichick, some talent deficiencies can be masked or overcome by scheming, if you have a loaded roster, coaching deficiencies can be masked (Bill Callahan taking over Gruden's Raiders comes to mind). Chip's scheme was successful with the incredibly talented team Reid left him, it wasn't so great after he ran most of those guys off.

Time will tell, but Chip has to drop the "smartest guy in the room" nonsense and figure out that his cute little college schemes mean nothing when EVERYONE is fast, strong, and the cream of the crop. It's easy coaching in college, only about 2% of the players you face are possible pro material, it's hard when just about every player suiting up on Sunday is the cream of the crop.

Plus, he just stepped into a division with three of the better defensive units in the league, to take over an offense that has nothing in the cupboard. Good luck there. ;-)

Edit: re, the middle part. Lurie isn't a snap judgement guy, and he had a ton of success with Reid running the show. If anything, he was a little TOO patient with Reid toward the end, considering the amount of talent on the team. Chip has to have some serious personality and judgement deficiencies for Lurie to pull the plug before three seasons were in the books. There must have been some smoke to Jackson's, McCoy's, and (to a much lesser extent) Maclin's fire, as to how Chip carried himself and treated people (I doubt he's "racist", but I get the impression he is an arrogant p***k), and how he evaluated players.

Chip came in believing the hype surrounding his "genius". The NFL doesn't tend to treat coaches like that well.

Actually, in the very first RPG ever published, and the AD&D edition that followed, the Dungeon Master was specifically told to be an "impartial referee". Most games, until 2e was released, expected the GM to be an "impartial referee".

You're missing the point of his statement. It isn't that the GM is "just a referee". It's that, during GAMEPLAY, his job is to be the impartial arbiter of rulings, and he isn't playing "against" the party, he's setting up a world and scenarios and letting the party to what they will. As in, he's the referee, he just happens to be doing the talking and dice rolling for the NPCs and whatnot.

"Impartial" means not taking sides. "Referee" means person adjudicating the rules fairly and consistently.

Nothing in the statement says "unimaginative", "boring", or "lazy about world building and creating an immersive game".

Liberty's Edge

It's almost like the whole "Stormwind" thing. I optimize the living crap out of my characters, but I don't "min/max", I take my rolls and make something incredible out of them. But, just because Cadogan was dropping Shadowrun numbers of d6s every time he hit something doesn't mean he wasn't roleplayed to the hilt, as well.

And, seriously, if you think that Kirth's impartial referee style of GMing takes anything away from his ability to make a setting you can immerse yourself into, or roleplay memorable NPCs, or any of the other things you mention, I'm here to tell you you're far from correct.

Aviona, Aramni, etc, were living, breathing places with tons of intrigue, amazingly fleshed out and compelling NPCs (particularly d'Ansac, he was a hoot, and Monk, who made the PLAYER behind Cadogan seethe with anger and a tinge of fear).

Liberty's Edge

You're confusing prep, worldbuilding, and the ability to bring something to life through narrative ability with adjudicating the game.

If you're not "just a referee" as a GM, impartiality flies out the window. Players are going to destroy whatever you have planned, it's what they do if they have a shred of ability to play the game, but if you're too emotionally involved with your setting or NPCs, some players are going to be turned off by that.

I, for one, am a "let the chips (or dice) fall where they may" player. If I suspect a DM is fudging or influencing things because of some story he's attached to, I find another table. I WANT an "impartial referee" so I know everything is kosher. I don't want to think you're "cheating" to keep a pet NPC alive, or railroading the party to fit your narrative. The "collective storytelling" part of the game is secondary to the "I'm playing a game with rules and dice that determine success or failure" part of the game. Otherwise, why use the dice at all? Just play Amber or something.
