    🎨 Creative Bring me really alien aliens!

    In a game I'm running, there's a chance my PCs will be traveling to an alien world. When I say alien, I don't mean bumpy-forehead Trek people or xenomorphs; I mean aliens. Things that we don't have categories for because we've never encountered the like. Things that blur the lines between...

    Dark magic for Savage Worlds

    You know how many settings have some form of magic that is dark, corrupt, evil, or otherwise unusually dangerous? I'm looking for suggestions for how to implement something like this in Savage Worlds. I'd prefer to avoid a custom list of spells/powers, and just have it as an option (unlockable...

    Giants and their hunger (looking for an indie RPG)

    Ages ago, in the days of yore known as 2008, I got to play in a beta playtest of a tiny indie RPG called simply, Giants. It's by Jeff J. Lower, and the subtitle is "A game about giants and their hunger." It was a simple and unique game, in which the players were, you guessed it, giants of one...

    Fantasy herbalism and hazards

    Can anyone recommend a really good supplement, splatbook, blog post, or other on the topic of fantastic herbalism? Ideally it would be Savage Worlds, and ideally free, but I'm fine with converting and with dropping a few bucks on something worthwhile. I'm looking for something that offers...

    🔐 Closed Requesting clarification on a warning

    I recently received a warning for (unintentional) offensive language here, and I am asking for some clarification so I can avoid issues like this in the future. For full context, I and some others were discussing whether it's possible to portray "savage, tribal" humanoids in a D&D setting...

     Your favorite mechanics from each edition

    What are your favorite mechanical elements from various editions of D&D? Why do you like them? I'm not talking about which edition is best or worst, just what crunchy elements impressed you and made you wonder why no one had ever done that before. I'll start. 4e: The Bloodied condition...

    [Let's Read] D&D 3.0 Monster Manual II

    Because I am a crazy person, I've decided to start another Let's Read. The monsters were my (and seemingly everyone else's) favorite part of my LR of the Epic Level Handbook, so why not do a LR of all the 3e monster books? I'm not going to do the original Monster Manual, since that has already...

    E6 advice [D&D 3e]

    Hello peoples! I am slowly working on an E6 setting, using the variant rules found here. I've both played and run a fair amount of D&D 3.5, but I have never tried E6 (and most of my campaigns started at 3rd level). I'm hoping the sages here can help me out. I have some specific concerns. Do...
