These are my top favorite painted figures i have ever done :D
My friend asked me if I wanted to play D&D; I sent her this in an email as a response.
3.5e hands down. I grew up with it, and I think it provides the most as far as tools for creativity goes. 4e brought it back down to a cookie-cutter board game. It’s harder to homebrew with it and way harder to do anything particularly badass. I don’t play with a map in 3.5e unless the party wants me to, and it runs more like a story because of that. I can’t see my self effectively doing that in 4e
I heartily disagree. In fact the only thing I can think of that makes it harder to homebrew is simply you not being familiar enough with the system. And I’ve seen plenty of my players do some badassness, much to my creatures’ dismay and death. The “Cloud of Murder” comes to mind…
I do agree that a battle map is more required in 4E, as there are more tactics and such bouncing off and around the players with effects, but we always use a map with a similar style in 3.5. So I think this is more on your players and your game style than anything else. Some players need to know EXACTLY how many feet/squares they are from enemies and such. Maps help with that.
Went to my local gaming store today, and I purchased supplies for my first table-top adventure.
Things are coming together nicely.
Very cool. Be sure to check the WotC website for all the errata and updates to the Players Handbooks. Many class features have been tweaked or altered. Have fun!!
Reading up on The Raven Queen in the pantheon for 4E, I found out that she had replaced Nerull. The gods got together and decided that the new goddess would be the god of death, instead of the god of undead like her predecessor. I have a Raven Queen PC, and I want to through some much deserved plot his way.
SO, here is my question to all of you:
If you were playing a Cleric following the Raven Queen, would you want to pursue Orcus as an enemy, or followers or Nerull trying to resurrect their god?
Shoot me a message in my ask box with your answer!
Why not both? Followers of Nerull trying to resurrect, meanwhile Orcus is manipulating them into channeling all that power to him instead. Secret Agent cultists.

The hidden message. Fnord.
Reblog if you know the definition of Thac0.
This is what tonight is all about…
I have that. Though I have the newer cover with the Wizard on the front…
So earlier today me and these two other guys who I know were having this really random conversation and it somehow turned into “which is better: Portal 2 or D&D?” Well I play Portal two, one guy played D&D, and the other guy played both. So we left it up to him to decide. While he was thinking me and the D&D guy made a deal that whoever lost had to start playing the other game. I lost. I’m now playing Dungeons and Dragons. God Help Me.
… because … you know… I’m cool like that. So far, I love the show. <3
Great Episode. Be sure to go back to season 1 though. LOTS of good stuff. The Halloween Ep stands out. And of course, Paintball.
Yes. Anything over 6 players is too much. And 6 is pushing it. 4-5 is optimal.
Mmm….I disagree. I don’t have a vast amount of experience but I believe we have a party of seven? And we don’t (usually) get bogged down. I mean, I know it could be better, but still….we do okay for ourselves. Our entire social circle shuts down on Saturday nights though.
You CAN play with more people. One game I was in had.. Hmm.. Maybe 8-10 players. But it bogs down combat, and less players get time to shine. You said yourself “I know it could be better.” If you had less people you would notice a difference.
I also play in Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, and I think it slows down past 3-4 players.
