    They have a much better setting this time, the Forgotten Realms the setting that has made them boat loads of cash and kept D&D afloat during the hard times.

    I think it's going to make some serious money.

    It won't because the screenwriters' last few films bombed.

    Seems like Wizards of the Cucks is threatening the competition. They are going after sponsors of TSR and indie table tops that use OSR. Funny how a corporation that espouse "progressive" and "inclusive" beliefs is also one of the most monopolistic company in the world. WotC is truly just like a villain from a D&D campaign. The irony however fails to fall on them.

    This reads either like a Twitter tranny wrote it or a WotC employee did. Oh wait, they are both the same thing. Never mind.

    Given the skyships, I'm surprised the Hickmans didn't collaborate with Bruce Heard:

    It's a mixed bag, but there are some nice pieces in there with the ships, etc. Besides, anti-furry/scaly agenda aside, you didn't even pick out the worst pieces.

    Any interest in 5e Mystics/psionics? Perhaps the homebrew Psion Kibblestasty made here? The Disciplines start on page 10, each of which has optional spells one could pour their points into if the psionic power doesn't match what you want to try to pull off. The Projection discipline and Shaper subclass seem like they'd get one started for a JoJo game with stands.

    Yeah, I know. Some folks don't want psyker mutant characters in their knights and wizardry games. But the idea of an all-mystics party escaping from an Aboleth or Mind Reaver's territory interests me. Alternatively playing one in a setting that is dealing with Truenaming magics replacing arcane spells due to Spellplague or a Goddess of Magic's death.

    How do folks feel about magic or psionics systems that have you roll to resist backlash after you use your powers? Or roll for some wild magic/reality paradox in the case of Mage from WhiteWolf.

    I grew up on Whitewolf with things like Paradox as an intrinsic part off magic so I'm all for it. But I feel Psionics/Mystics seem more appropriate to a Corebook then Bard which is a very niche specific class when discussing fantastical settings.

    For 5e DnD I keep coming up with these scenarios that feel like they'd greatly improve a campaign. Want a predominately melee campaign? Ban Barbarian, give limited Rages per long rest to the party, allow 1 reckless attack (or a number based on STR/CON), and give them something you could do in exchange for "spending" a rage use. Want a ton of social situations and you want meaningful words to have value (and critical combats)? Ban Bards, give everyone inspiration dice that are d4s, let those recharge after sufficient successful Persuasion/Intimitation/etc. checks, and allow someone to cast a spell like Dissonant Whispers as a bonus action or reaction after a sufficiently intimidating display. Increase the die size permanently after accomplishing social goals or something.

    Basically give some or all of the party a feat that says "You get X Bard/Barbarian/Fighter abilities with these limitations." Not as elegant as all of the homebrew documents that flesh out combat, but these sorts of things give characters impactful ways to change the flow of a game.

    Gestalt class campaign rules have been fiddled with for at least ten years. This Dr Frankenstein method is a shortcut.

    Any thoughts on this? Or on psionic enemies in general?
