Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR and expanded my horizons from there. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment What is the soonest an item that traps a person can be made?
Given that custom magic items are almost entirely a matter of DM fiat, there is no such thing as an objective, system-based "optimal". To optimise something you need a known system, which is missing here.

comment What are the major innovations in Dungeon World compared to D&D 3.5/Pf/4e?
@AlanDeSmet Exactly! The GM section is rules in DW. In fact, the GM rules are the core system.

comment How far can characters see?
@KRyan Spelling it out is helpful, but not necessary. We do expect people to read the tags: if someone replies with a 3.5e-based answer, they are in the wrong for not reading the tags, not the asker for not redundantly saying "Pathfinder" in the question.

comment Can Druids tame a dinosaur?
@ZeDemonPyro Yeah, I prefer calling it "velociraptor" in most contexts, because cooler and people know what I mean. The point about name is just that "velociraptor-as-we-know-it" is conveniently right there in the list, but you have to look under "deinonychus" to find it.

@lisardggY I still miss poor brontosaurus. But the feathered T-Rex significantly makes up for that.
