Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds from B/X to D&D 5e. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons for both trad and indie games. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment What goes into making a good megadungeon setting
Since this site isn't a discussion forum and works rather differently (see the tour), “tips and things to watch for”–type questions don't work well here, the way they might on a discussion forum. It sounds like you haven't got that far yet, but if you can narrow this down to one practical obstacle you are encountering and need help overcoming, then we can help with that concrete problem. If not, we can recommend one of these discussion forums instead for general tip- and idea-gathering purposes.

comment How would I represent managing a pirate ship in Reign's Company rules?
Quick question: do you have a copy of Reign (or the Reign Enchiridion) to refer to for the actual Company rules, or are you only reading that quick-reference PDF you linked to?

revised For the purpose of magic immunity, does Counterspell target the caster or the spell?

comment Does every magic rod, wand, crystal, orb, and staff count as an arcane focus?
@KRyan Just that nowhere in the text does it even suggest that all right-shaped magic items double as foci. This is a case of "rules as wished" and assuming it must be what they hope, overcoming people's ability to read the rules in front of them as they are written.

restore section I thought was superfluous and had removed for brevity, but which is apparently important

comment How would I represent managing a pirate ship in Reign's Company rules?
Since this is just about using the rules for their normal purpose, I clarified that and removed the [homebrew] tag.

comment Can I two-weapon fight unarmed?
I'm really not following the structure of your argument. I think where I'm losing you is how a monk can count as unarmed when wielding monk weapons.
