Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos for DnD 5e Review

I began gaming through RPGs and I’m sure, like many, I started with Dungeons and Dragons (DnD). Over the years, I have played tons of RPG game systems, but two are my all-time favorites: DnD and Call of Cthulhu (CoC). In 2014 WOTC released DnD 5th Edition and most fans, including myself, came back to […]

Fantasy Basketball

Forget Fantasy Football. I want to see a Fantasy Basketball game, with actual fantasy elements! I’m imagining a regular basketball game, with three wizards on each team (each group in a raised box on opposite sides of the court, where they have a clear view of the action). Each wizard may cast unlimited spells. Each spell is insta-cast, may be cast at range, and persists for six seconds. Only one spell, cast by a given wizard, may be active at once. Wizards may cast any spell they know, so long as no permanent damage is caused. For instance, a player takes the ball and starts down the court. One of his wizards casts haste on him, and he takes off past the opposing team. One of their wizards casts slow on him, while another of that team’s wizards summons a goblin directly in the player’s path to intercept him. The player’s wizard casts mirror image on him, allowing him to dodge the goblin as well as the opposing players coming up on him from behind. One enemy wizard teleports the play

Better Backpacks

I read a wonderful article a week or so ago, (I think it was someone’s archive, so it may have been much older), about hiking and backpack loading, with comments dealing with real life hiking trips as well as how it all applied to dnd. I just now tried to find it, so that I could link to it, but sadly my search skills are lacking. : ( One topic that came up was whether adventurers should wear backpacks during combat. The dominant opinion was a resounding no. So much so that a number of folks sounded amazed that anyone would consider such an unconventional move. My friends and I are more of the couch potato variety, so hiking is just something we do when forced to. I never gave any thought to removing my backpack for combat and, to my knowledge, neither has anyone else in my group. But I have to admit, the notion of removing the backpack certainly has merit. Enough so, that I’m considering imposing a -2 penalty to combat (to hit and damage for melee, ranged, and thrown attacks) while wearing a bac

Psionics

Lately, every time I turn around someone seems to be talking about psionics. This seems especially odd, seeing as how we are four years into 5e’s reign, and Wizards of the Coast have completely stripped psionics out of the game. Apparently, this is the universe’s way of telling me that psionics should be my next topic. Until recently, psionics wasn’t something that I’d thought about for quite a while. Most people seem to either love it or hate it. Personally, I’ve never really had strong feelings either way. Big surprise here. I don’t use it as written, but I do have my own custom implementation. As many people have said, psionics just feels too much like science fiction for me. If I were running a Star Wars campaign, I’d be all over it. Psionics seems like it would make a fantastic version of the “Force”. But just because I don’t let my PCs have psionics, that doesn’t mean that monsters shouldn’t use it. Let’s back up a little bit

Did You Miss Me?

I’ve been gone quite a while… again. As usual, when I’ve been gone a while, it’s even harder to come back. I feel like I have to explain why I’ve been gone and what I’ve been done which is intimidating in itself, so I put off my return even further. Then, I find something I want to write about, but I can’t because I haven’t written my “I’m back” post yet. I’m tired of that cycle, so here goes. I’m back! My English Garden As you know, I bought a wonderful house a few years ago. The previous owner planted what she called an English Garden. If you’ve ever seen one, an English Garden is quite lovely. However, in America, the term English Garden has come to refer to an unkempt area where a person has thrown about seeds and bulbs completely at random and claims the result is exactly what they intended. When they moved out, the flipper couldn’t be troubled to actually care for the area and instead simply mowed it all down and
