I posted this a few places, so I hope no one is getting tired of seeing the link. If so, I apologize.

I'm curious about how people came to D&D, specifically, and what assumptions they have about the game.

If you are inclined to take the survey, I would greatly appreciate it. I can't promise anything except that you will be helping satisfy my curiosity, but you are a wonderful person that deserves XP if you fill it out.

Conan D20 included mechanics for armor that reflected wear and tear (used to soak damage but became useless at some point). Thematically a great idea but it introduced more book keeping to combat. Like most things it depends on what the table enjoys.

Ammo tracking DEPENDS on the setting and game. If you're trekking across the wilderness where replacing items may be difficult it makes total sense.

Friendly PSA: the X Card has grown a whole lot since the last time I looked at it!
I'm a big believer in the X Card. I've put it on my table for a year or so now, and while I've never had anyone invoke it I think it's an important thing to make available to people.

I hadn't looked at the original document in a little while, and it turns out the X Card has grown quite a lot! Where once it was a single-page graphic with a quick paragraph describing its use, it is now 29 pages long and full of helpful hacks and insight into the tool. I know there are plenty of people out there who are highly critical of the X Card, and it turns out the document now provides a lot of tips for responding to those people.

For some reason, arms and armor never seem to get “used up” or replaced, unless it’s to get better stuff that we found in a dragon’s horde, pulled off an NPC, or upgraded from the store. Why is that? Is there any reason why we’d want to deal with the…

This video was viscerally disturbing in a way I haven't experienced in a while. Great horror fodder for you game in there.

I haven't read it enough to give it a full review, but I'm posting this mainly to call out something I really liked that was included in this product.

There is a set of random tables for finding out what kind of person is wandering the street in the city, what social status that person has, what they might have on their person if they were pick pocketed or mugged, and if they have ties to a faction.

So when your party thief decides to pick someone's pocket, you know what they might end up with if the succeed, and how much trouble they might be in if they fail to make that check.

I remember back when the City System boxed set came out, and it had similar tables. I loved it, because who hasn't had a thief that has randomly decided to pick someone's pocket?

Eventually I need to do a more in-depth dive into this book, but I love "toolkit" bits like the Creating Random Citizens tables.

I'm not sure how I didn't hear about this until now, but this looks pretty interesting.
