March: In the Works
by Bart Carroll

Waterdeep lords, dungeon delvers, and a foray into the subterranean terror of Undermountain!

Talk about this preview here.


astralArchivist.com - 4e D&D house rules, homebrew, and story hours - now featuring ENWorld's Zeitgeist adventure path! Will Thibault is a winged, feathered serpent rarely found anywhere except in warm, jungle-like regions or flying through the ether. Due to his intelligence and powers he is regarded with awe by the inhabitants of his homelands and is considered to be divine.


Kobold Trapsmiths.

Where is your god now?
The question I have, is that character picking the lock the new Svirfneblin race? I am already so in love with this book.

Serious Wizards, thank you so much! 
is that character picking the lock the new Svirfneblin race?


Yes. That's Thorry the Unlucky.
"There's an old saying that all it takes for evil to triumph is that good people do nothing. I've always had a problem with that. If you do nothing to oppose evil, then how are you 'good'? To turn aside and allow evil to flourish is to collaborate with it. You ask for mercy. You claim you have done nothing. That 'nothing' is why you deserve no mercy." - Lorian Karthfaerr, drow paladin of Avandra Robin Laws says I'm a Storyteller:

You're more inclined toward the role playing side of the equation and less interested in numbers or experience points. You're quick to compromise if you can help move the story forward, and get bored when the game slows down for a long planning session. You want to play out a story that moves like it's orchestrated by a skilled novelist or film director.

Will svirfneblin be treated as a "new" race with different ability score adjustments or just be a subrace of the current gnome?

Darn, Undermountain a lv 1-5 adventure? That took all the fun of that adventure module. Frown
The 'Into the Unknown...' book sounded weak to me at first...but now. I'm actually excited. 3 playable races I've wanted given the 'offical' treatment for YEARS, and some cool sounding themes to boot. Hope the races are published with racial feats as well, as I doubt they'll get subsequent support... Undermountain sounds good too, and if it is...Scaling it up in levels shouldn't take more than a few hours/days, lol.
This is some of the best 4e news I've heard in about 6 months, really.

But I have to say, yet again...What about 'Heroes Option: The Astral Sea'? And a DMG3 focusing on epic tier play? Everyone knows the buzz is all on 5e (still hope it won't be called D&D NEXT) but I hope they bring 4e to a pleasant conclusion. I personally couldn't just stop 4 years of work with out finishing. I'm OCD like that. To me, that's like leaving a painting without that final touch of line, color or shape. That last effort that makes you say to yourself "Ok, I can stop. It's DONE. Beautiful. Any more, and I'll ruin it."

 

I don't want to be an edition warrior. I think there was something good and something bad in all the editions I played. I do, however, believe that the game has gotten better over the years (and decades). I hope this holds true into the future.

Peace.

It is certainly disturbing not hearing anything beyond May in the way of 4e products. So much still to do...
kobolds...that is all

Player's Option: Heroes of the Astral Sea basically would be the same material as in Divine Power – while Arcane and Primal had room to play around with Fey magic, Divine magic basically DEFINES the Astral Sea.  So unless the book was all about playing Quom and Githyanki, there's not much to offer there that isn't in other sources.  It might happen.  It's just the least likely in my opinion.

DMG3 is out, and it's free.  It's called the 2011 Compilation of The Dungeon Master Experience.  And boy is that compilation full of win.

Before posting, why not ask yourself, What Would Wrecan Say?

If they do it, they will find a a way to put a wizard in it.

Perhaps the Divine School of Magic for the Mage?

I don't doubt it.  These aren't the Clerics of the Coast, after all.

I really want the kobold stat block for the next preview for "April:  In The Works"
you know...depending on how they do it, the trapsmith might be very good for stealth based characters. You know, build traps out of nowhere without the enemy knowing.

That's funny because I really want the goblin one.

I'm both instinctive and emotional. I value my own instincts and desires, and either ignore or crush anything that stands in my way; planning and foresight are unnecessary. At best, I'm determined and fierce; at worst, I'm headstrong and infantile.

Maybe they'll just release them all to make us happy.

Now nothing but this is acceptable.
