Und weil es die liebe @chra war die mich wegen @KhazAndCrit drauf gebracht hatte, gibt's den #Duetgame Thread jetzt auch noch in deutsch für die #pnpde #ttrpg Twitter Blase 😘

#pnpde
Duospiele - 1on1 oder Duetgames - was ist das?

#Duetgame = 1 #ttrpg, 1 #GM / #DM + 1 Spieler

Du kannst ein Duetgame mit den Regeln von so ziemlich jedem #ttrpg spielen

#ttrpg #dnd #dnd5e #pnpde
Ich habe die meiste Erfahrung damit #DSA und #DnD / #dnd5e Duetgames zu leiten, aber ich habe auch schon #Duetgames in #Shadowrun und #Vampire the Masquerade gespielt und es hat super funktioniert und hat so viel Spaß gemacht!

So, the #DnD kids have managed to come up with the best improvised weapon I've ever heard of. Henry the Hazardous, an angry scarecrow on a stick. Here follows the saga of Henry.
My #DnD5e youth group were attacked by a scarecrow. The barbarian decides to grapple him, and succeeds. He then wants to hold the scarecrow aloft by its pole, so it can't reach down and get him. Sure, but you have to roll Grapple again to restrain, I say. He succeeds.
So now he's got this scarecrow waving over his head like an angry Wacky Wobbler. But Emily, I hear you say, doesn't the #DnD5e scarecrow have two legs and move like a humanoid? Yes, but I described it as resembling a classic scarecrow tied to a pole at the start of this fight.

In creating the planeshifter and survivalist, the biggest question we had to answer was, "How do you bring nature-focused classes to a science fiction game?"

In the traditional sense, nature plays a relatively small part in sci-fi. There's a heavier focus on tech. #ttrpg #DnD5e
We've been calling the upcoming supplement 'the nature book' because of the two classes that are its capstones. But how does that work in space? What's a druid to do? Not much flora and fauna to see if you're not on a life-sustaining planet.

So we started by redefining 'nature'.
The void is part of the natural world, and so are any creatures that inhabit it. Asteroids, moons, celestial bodies - all these constitute nature, even if they're inorganic! Add in spaceship and station greenhouses and weird beasties and plants and you've got plenty to go on!

Rather than padding NPC text, I think WOTC should look at better presenting encounter areas. I suggest we need only ever have the following headings:... (1/x) #dnd #dnd5e
Area Name/#, Features (light, terrain, ceiling/dimensions), Creatures, Traps/Hazards, Exploration, Interaction (2/x)
Area Name/# is self explanatory: "1-5. Goblin Barracks."

Features includes light (natural, dim, dark, 'lit by torches' etc.), ceiling height (indoors), cover options, difficult terrain. Save more complex stuff for the Traps/Hazards heading. (3/x)

Alright. I'll bite and try to give some kind of guideline to help you run megadungeons for #dnd5e (well, any #tabletop). General principles, at the very least.
- A thread -
There needs to be several reasons for your PCs to explore the place beyond "cool loot." While players LOVE loot, they don't want to, well, have their PC die.
CURIOSITY can be one of those things. "What new aspect of this story waits in the next level/room?"
That is how your PLOT (a dungeon, like any story, needs to have a plot or plot beats) should function. What about this megadungeon will drive my players to go INTO IT not OUT OF IT. "You're at the bottom fight your way out" is lazy and uninspired.

(So 3rd attempt writing this thread. Now condensed)

#DnD World Building thread:

I'm writing up a largely sandy island for a #DnD5e campaign 🏝 The island is loosely shaped like a spear head, with a mountain ridge running along what might be seen as the spears ridge / fuller πŸ—‘
I love the phonetic sounds of the Arabic language for this location. I'm currently thinking the island is called internationally as Al 'Ard Ramali. Which roughly translates to The Land of the Spear. Is that too many syllables for a countries name? Does it flow? ⁉
At the very tip of the island (the pointy end), is the capital, a large trading port city that is literally & physically split in two βš“ It is known for trading in exotic items, precious metals & precious gems. Due to the desert environment that largely covers the island, food...

My dads first DnD group back in the 80s reached max level and had all of their own castles. I am currently his DM and am going to run a dungeon crawl through his old castle since I found his old map. Going to see how long it takes him to notice! Very excited πŸ˜ƒ #dnd #dnd5e #ad&d
Wow thanks for the love everyone! I will do my best to record the audio of this and definitely will update you all on the outcome πŸ˜ƒ
I am absolutely floored by the outpouring of support from everyone! Thank you! Game day is this Sunday so I will be tweeting what happens for everyone during our game night 😊

As I start my descent on this flight from my gaming past, I would like to share verbatim a post I made on G+ in 2014:
I feel like D&D 5e has art that speaks to me.
When I was young and first getting into the hobby, I just accepted that the game was written by white men. 1/
...And based off fiction written by white men. When it came down to it, the art didn't matter because people can look like what I wanted to see in my mind.

Over the years, RPGs started being more inclusive in their art, including D&D, with Regdar technically being black 2/
...as well as the monk whatever her name was. It was hard to tell their ethnicity because they were light skinned. Still, I thought it was cool but it wasn't a big deal.
This art, however, is unmistakable. I love it! 3/

We're a bit late to this #AprilTTRPGMaker thing, but we do want to participate, so let's catch up!

1. Who are you?
The primary user of this account is Ross Leiser, the Founder and Director here at Outlandish Adventure Productions, but there's more! (cont.
1. (cont.)
We also have an awesome graphic designer: @freeners, as well as a good friend of mine named Ted Bowman, who doesn't have a Twitter for me to link, but just joined the OAP design team.

We're just a group of nerds with weird senses of humor and a love of odd mechanics.
2. Where ya at?
When OAP was founded, we were located in Wilmington, Delaware, US. But, as of January, we've moved to Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
