Re: Need advice from 5e enthusiasts

Lost Mines of Phandelver is the best starting point, and is fun with multiple run throughs. If you're looking to get him an actual adventure - Storm King's Thunder is the best. I cannot recall off hand anything that isn't appropriate for children in that age range - it offers some great Role Playing...

Re: Best Wife Ever!

That is awesome Meph, and indeed, happy birthday! I have a wife just like that - she makes treats for us, helps me get things prepped, and is understanding of the days when I have to take over the basement (it is a play room for the children most of the time).

Re: It REALLY IS scary IMO

I don't usually go that far lol. But I should have been more clear when I said "don't talk about sensitive topics on your phone" - don't even talk about that stuff when your phone is anywhere near you. There was a great meme... I'll see if I can find it... Here it is. https://pbs.twimg.com...

Re: It REALLY IS scary IMO

For what it is worth I don't think you're paranoid at all. There is excellent documentation from FOIA requests and other means of inquiry, as well as from whistleblowers like Snowden which shows that not only are these companies and the NSA collecting metadata on everyone, but that they are actively...

Re: Family woes.. Boo hiss..

Not trying to add to your woes Garhkal, but I don't think that sounds like Asperger's to me. I can't diagnose your brother from afar, and without a detailed history and examination - but I would seek a different cause. If your brother did well enough in school (despite his antisocial tendencies), an...

Re: Xwing miniatures game, who plays??

Garhkal, I have several friends who play - and co-owning three LGStores I can say that people either buy the Core Set + 3 (average) extra ships or just custom build a Core Set of their own from the start. Most people I know sleeve their cards. There are a lot of options for the acrylic markers - and...

Re: Strange response to a PM

The person may be troubled, or may really really dislike you. Either way - brush it off, and honor their request. Its probably a lot harder to be the kind of person that respond to a PM that way than it is to deal with them... so pity is an appropriate response.

Re: MP3 music/We live in the future

Yeah - 42" should be okay - again when viewed form a given distance - somewhere from 10-14 feet I'd think. The whole process is very relative that way. And honestly even if you got a larger CRT tv it wouldn't look good at that size. I wouldn't get Plasma btw. Your DVD's are generally going to p...

Re: MP3 music/We live in the future

Love this post Halaster. You truly are an old fogey :D (said with the utmost affection, I promise). First - no DVD will look good blown up to that size. They just don't have the resolution. Anything larger than 40 inches is going to be a stretch. 36" is ideal for DVD's with a viewing distance o...

Re: How do you handle In-Game Politics?

That's what they get for flaunting a ton of money all over town :lol:. That tax was always there, but being broke they never had to interact with it, and never thought to ask. To be fair one of the guildmasters in the town also tried to get them to sign on with the merchant's guild. The guild would ...

Re: How do you handle In-Game Politics?

Did they know of the 50% tax before hand, or was that just dropped on them?


NOPE. Lol.

Re: How do you handle In-Game Politics?

For me it has been an interesting opportunity to force players (from both sides of the aisle) to confront their preconceptions. The most recent one was a newer player who was playing a Fighter/Mage. The party had gone on a quest to find a lost dwarven vault. They risked life and limb, fought Drow an...

Re: How do you handle In-Game Politics?

I think the politics is interesting, and I don't mind people bringing their politics. I meant more, how do you try to represent different political views?

How do you handle In-Game Politics?

So this post is going to be touchy - I'm sure. But this is purely about an IN-GAME concept. I want to know how you all handle politics in game? For instance, in my Homebrew world of Arcannan ( http://arcannan.wiki-site.com/index.php/Main_Page ) I have the "10 Kingdoms of Man" - as well as ...
