One can never have too many monsters

No, you can't

You know, now that you say that Lex my few experiences have been online as well. Though I own the Force and Destiny Starter set, I haven't had a chance to try it at an actual table. Maybe my opinion of it would change in a face to face game.

Unfortunately, there aren't any groups in my area, and I don't know enough about the system to try and organize one.

I have to say that I think it's possible part of my lack of enthusiasm for the system is that I mainly played it online. I think it's likely this system is a lot more fun in person than online. Online play tends to drag a lot more, so the time the system adds to interpreting rolls seemed to really bog it down. That would be much less of an issue with in-person play, where it's much easier for everyone at the table to chime in on the results of a given roll.

For me, the jury is still out on this system. I still have ideas for a Star Wars campaign I'd like to run some time, but I want to run it in person.

GMJ Episode Discussion / GMJ 207: DMG Chapter 3: Random Encounters
« Last post by Lex on February 19, 2018, 12:04:04 pm »
Lex continues his exploration of the Dungeon Master's Guide with discussion of random encounters from chapter 3. He discusses how, why and when to use random encounters, and he explains how they don't really have to be random at all. A better term to describe how Lex, at least, uses these types of encounters is "flexible encounters".

GMJ Episode Discussion / GMJ 206: Hinterlands of Elandria 03: The Last Village
« Last post by Lex on February 19, 2018, 12:03:18 pm »
Hinterlands of Elandria is a new D&D campaign set in Lex's homebrew campaign world, Primordia. Five years after the beginning of the Breaking of the World, the Time of Rifts and the Retreat of Humanity, a new team of adventurers leave the safety of the city of Elandria to explore rumors of a lone village somehow surviving in the Hinterlands to the east. Very few cities survived the Breaking, and it's believe no smaller settlements did. If there is a village out there, how has it survived on its own? The answer to this question could decide the fate of the thousands of refugees packing the streets of Elandria.

I give you a ton of credit. Most FFG Star Wars lovers instantly try to sell me on the system as soon as I voice my dislike. In some pretty aggressive ways. It is partly why I haven't gone back after my first few attempts at plating the game. I am glad they love it but you won't hear me brow beating anyone to play the systems and games I love.

Ugh, I very much dislike those people. You voiced your opinion and I respect that. Fück them and their "My game is the bestest evar!!!" bullshît.

I hope you have fun playing your game of choice  ;D

I have read and love the lore and setting of Numenera, just haven't had a chance to play it. Would love to test drive it someday.

Another way to get around the åss hâts is to use accents! The fücking bots can't tell the difference because it's a different Unicode character!

One can never have too many monsters (says the DM who has MM, Volo's, Tome of Beasts, countless 3pp freebies from DriveThruRPG, and will be receiving the Creature Codex)!  I'm also excited to see some new lore and for the other tidbits that will undoubtedly be included in this new release.  Will listen to the Dragon Talk episode and chime back in later...
