    4th Edition, Looking for a change to Zeitgeist Adventure Path

    ENworld once published a adventure path for D&D 3rd edition/Pathfinder and 4th edition (and now 5th edition) called Zeitgeist and it was extremely cool being Steampunk D&D and all that. However they didn't quite get the conversion right for 4th edition as it was dropped in mid-way through and so...

    I've been playing through the 4e Dungeon Delves solo and it's been pretty fun

    I've never played 4e IRL. I had plans for a campaign using that Chaos Scar sandbox thing but it ended up falling through. Probably for the best as I didn't have too great a handle on the system at that point, not that it's particularly intimidating, and I don't think my players were too hyped on...

    🎨 Creative 4th Edition: Roles and Backgrounds and Themes, oh my!

    How feasible would it be to run 4e PCs using only the three pillars of Roles, Backgrounds, and Character Themes? PCs would get all the features of Unique Companion Characters (DMG2 p30+) plus Background skill bonuses, as well Theme features and Utility Powers at the appropriate level. At Paragon...

    [4e+] Semi-Major Houserule: "Heroic Origins"

    I've been thinking, for some time now, that 4e has a space that could be radically cleaned up, without making something incompatible with standard 4e. Namely, the spread of eventual "starting character" feature sources that got...pretty out of hand by the time 4e ended its run. Themes...

    [4e] Conquest of Nerath Map without the test

    I just finished altering the Nerath hi-res map WotC released from the board game Conquest of Nerath. I removed all the text from the image. I thought it might be of use to people: Link: http://i.imgur.com/WZ7VrUT.jpg I'm going to readd the text as a layer in Gimp, with more place names and...

    [Advise Me On] Which system, if I decide to DM?

    Recently, my interest in DMing has been rekindled by a handful of things, but among them is having a group of people I'm in regular contact with that would be interested. I've never DM'd before, but I've flirted with the idea for years now--I love worldbuilding, and while there's lots of things...

    A Goliath Carries a Halfling in a Sack...

    And then activates a power that makes him Insubstantial. What happens to the Halfling? Does the outcome change if the Halfling has a bag of holding or a portable hole? Also related, should we take to time to explain the the Halfling's player what a 'Fastball Special' is, before it's too late?

    What L5R mechanics do you use to replicate the ubiquitous Pathfinder Perception checks

    Okay so the title may be a bit cumbersome but it gives the right idea. Okay so you play high fantasy be it Dungeons and Dragons version 3.5/or such, or be it Pathfinder. As you play your GM/Storyteller/DM/Narrator has you roll Perception/Listen/Spot checks quite regularly, often it seems out of...

    4e: Domain Management?

    Anyone run a high-level 4e game and had the PCs build and manage a domain of their own? If so, how'd you do it? Just craft it out of whole cloth? Use older editions as a guideline? Did you layer in retainers/followers at earlier levels as well? Regale me.

    [4e] Book of Vile Darkness

    Ok, so my 4e collection is pretty complete. I'm happy with it, and the things I'm missing are more for completions sake more than anything. But I realised the other day, I had a complete blind spot where this book is concerned. So, can any-one tell me about it? Is there anything in here that...

    [Pathfinder] 3.5/4E Style Warlock for Pathfinder?

    Is there a 3.5/4E style Warlock for Pathfinder, in a 3rd party product, or in a fan conversion?

    [Talk to me about] Primeval Thule

    As the title says - can you tell me about Primeval Thule by Sasquatch Game Studio? How's the setting fluff? What is it about, exactly? Also, tell me what you think is especially cool about it. Also, what rules version fits the setting best? I have to be honest, i have not much interest in PF...

    [4E] Better claw or bite for Dragonborn fighter (RAW)?

    Hi folks, 4E is about the only edition I haven't played before, but the local gaming group wants to give it a shot so here I am rolling up a character. The concept I'm going for is a Dragonborn fighter trying to get in touch with his Dragonish side and use bodily abilities as much as possible...

    I now Suddently Understand WotC's marketing of 5e and I'm stupid for not realising it sooner

    So, I think I finally understand why WotC and the D&D team were so down on 4e when they were marketing 5e, and I am so blind that I didn't see the comparison before. Ok, so a company is going to lauch a new product. They do customer serveys, try to isolate the issues that people have with...

    Let's talk (and vote) about roles

    In another thread, some off-topic discussion of roles started up, which got me to thinking about a number of facets of class design. Originally, I was going to just make a simple three-option (plus "other") poll, asking whether people liked class roles to be openly stated, implicit, no...

    [3E, 4E, 5E, Pathfinder] 1 on 1/small group games for newer versions of D&D: best ways of accomplishing this?

    So tomorrow I'm having my 4th Labyrinth Lord 'Solo Heroes' session with a friend of mine. It's been very fun and successful, in no small part due to the rules supplement of the same name. I talked about it here on my blog, but if the link doesn't work I'll discuss it on this thread, too...

    Let’s Read: Underdark (4e)

    Hello everyone! Welcome to my first Let’s Read – covering my favorite source of fluff for 4th Edition: Underdark. Funny thing is, I wasn’t originally that interested in this book, as the Underdark had always struck me as kind of boring: just a big cave inexplicably full of monsters with...

    [4th] Seen on TV Tropes....

    Ok, so I'm bored at work with very little to do, so, I'm browsing through the 'Dork Age' Pages, and killing time, fully expecting to roll my eyes at the inevitable D&D section, which as it turns out is pretty balanced, Starting off with the following: Ok, pretty valid so far. Then I come...

    Arcane Age equals 4th Edition - how to do it?

    Cross-posted from Candlekeep Forums As I'm finally working my way through Netheril: Empire of Magic (and then moving on to the Arcane Age supplements like Cormanthyr and The Fall of Myth Drannor), I was immediately hit with the idea that I could use those books as the fluff for a 4e Forgotten...

    Changing ruleset midway through a campaign

    Does anyone have any experience changing ruleset / edition midway through a campaign? The group I play with are quite new and started with 4E, which we have only just got a reasonably good understanding of. We are midway through a campaign which we intend to be the first of a few campaigns in...
