Re: 5e "more information will follow in the months to come" 16 months ago

It's hard to say. I doubt there is much to update since it will still be based on 5e for better or worse. I see it being more likely to be a rerelease (probably with different art) than an actual new version of the game. The fact that they just ported Symbarum to 5e tells me they have an interest in...

Re: Stone Giants

Re: Ruins of the Lost Realm

If I had one criticism it is the choice to include certain concepts that are lifted straight out of our own history, legends and myths. This is very immersion-breaking, especially at our table. Examples would be "The Green Knight" (pg 84) and even calling an NPC "Ivoch the Boneless&q...

Re: New titles from Free League!

The backgrounds were the one part of 1e that I could have done without, so I'm not all that worried with it. I think it was a waste of resources then and now lol. Would have much rather have had that energy go into updating the Rohirim etc. EDIT: Not that I'm upset. I'm not. Was ambivalent to begin ...
