I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment How does the 5th edition handle enhanced magic focuses
@Escoce That's not relevant to the rules of D&D 5e.

comment What system would best capture the style and feel of TMNT mechanically?
I always grit my teeth when I see a new answer on an old system-rec because I assume it'll be some driveby "I LIKE GAME X" but this is the right kind of game-rec answer with personal experience and all - good work!

comment In DnD 5e's lower magic approach, how would the mages of Thay's magic item business work out?
Also note the Red Mages well predate the easy-crafting rules of 3e; it would be instructive to see what they were like in 1e/2e FR in terms of likely 5e depiction.

Interesting. They have fast healing 5 in their writeup in Runelords.

comment Party communication across languages
This question is perfectly answerable as long as answerers keep in mind Good Subjective, Bad Subjective - we don't want your uninformed opinion, we want to hear experience from those who have done it or seen it done.
