Re: Customizing Origins

it makes sense to me to have some flexibility while retaining some Ability expectations, as has been included so far. There are also fewer races/species in RoS than in vanilla D&D, so I think the drive of choosing an origin for the starting ASI will be lessened because there are fewer variations (se...

Re: Sharing 5e Homebrew in anticipation of Ruins of Symbaroum's release

Hey, so I reached out to support@ with a link to the content we'd made asking if it was okay to share. MJH replied, shared it with ML and JR, and returned with approval to share! I mention this in the intro copy in the document, but it’s important to note three things: First, that this document is n...

Sharing 5e Homebrew in anticipation of Ruins of Symbaroum's release

Hi all, This is in particular a question for team Symbaroum/Free League: I'm a co-gm and player in my group's Ruins of Symbaroum campaign that we started last year with the release of the Ruins of Symbaroum PDF. We've gone on to brew our own player options based on the original Symbaroum core rules ...

Re: I want it All and I want it now!

Yeah, that's the one. It's pretty bare bones but has been enough for my group to get started on converting other parts of the original Symbaroum game.

Re: I want it All and I want it now!

My group have played through Copper Crown and started on Wrath of the Warden with the free conversion kit out and lots of our own homebrewing. We haven't been making notes on strict encounter conversions AFAIK, more ball parking what exists in 5e that we can relabel.

Re: Designers' Journal

My group has done some really strong work in home brewing the rest of the races and classes which, while admittedly biased, I think they've done a great job (though I made the mistake of sharing the Advanced Player's Guide and they're latched on to a lot from in there) and we've dived right into "c...

Is there an XP conversion ratio?

For example I am going to run The Howling of Damned Gods for some friends using the Ruins of Symbaroum (along with some additional homebrew work we've done beyond the initial document. In the adventure is says that PCs should have 70-100 XP on top of their starting setup, but what might that mean fo...

Re: Question about Starter vs Core

"Cinematics" are just a fancy term for short campaigns, ideally a few sessions. There are currently 3(well, 2 and a bit) official cinematics you can buy and play. Hope's Last Day in the Rulebook is a 3rd Act taster and demo, Chariot of the God's, and now Destroyer of Worlds. There's also a lot of ac...
