For those interested:  I was interviewed by the Examiner and we talked the Sundering, The Godborn, Star Wars, Erevis Cale, Egil and Nix, etc.  Fun interview.  Have a read, if you're so inclined.  :-)

Paul S. Kemp interview with the Examiner.

oooooo ooooooo ooooooo hey loook Paul Kemp posted something awesome
a mask everyone has at least two of, one they wear in public and another they wear in private.....
That was a good read. I enjoyed the bit about "do do whiskey," as I resemble that remark and, based on my experience, it's good advice. ;)

Thanks for posting the link, Paul.
After seeing this thread two nights ago, I ordered "The Hammer and the Blade". It just arrived. I'm looking forward to a good read, Paul.

I'm also looking forward to finally seeing what happens with the loose threads of Cale, Riven and the Princes. I can't recall how many times I've read the final chapters of Shadowrealm. The wait is almost over.

Indeed.  I'm more than a little excited for THE GODBORN to drop.  Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy HAMMER.  Egil and Nix are a blast to write.  :-)

I'm practically salivating at the thought of having The Godborn in my hands. Your Realms works have been some of the most enjoyable I have read, Paul.

Lady and gentlemen.... I present to you the Edition War without Contrition, the War of the Web, the Mighty Match-up! We're using standard edition war rules. No posts of substance. Do not read the other person's posts with comprehension. Make frequent comparison to video games, MMOs, and CCGs. Use the words "fallacy" and "straw man", incorrectly and often. Passive aggressiveness gets you extra points and asking misleading and inflammatory questions is mandatory. If you're getting tired, just declare victory and leave the thread. Wait for the buzzer... and.... One, two, three, four, I declare Edition War Five, six, seven eight, I use the web to Go!

D&D should not return to the days of blindfolding the DM and players. No tips on encounter power? No mention of expected party roles? No true meaning of level due to different level charts or tiered classes? Please, let's not sacrifice clear, helpful rules guidelines in favour of catering to the delicate sensibilities of the few who have problems with the ascetics of anything other than what they are familiar with.

Just a quick note on the MMORPG as an insult comparison... MMORPGs, raking in money by the dumptruck full. Many options, tons of fans across many audiences, massive resources allocated to development. TTRPGs, dying product. Squeaking out an existence that relys on low cost. Fans fit primarily into a few small demographics. R&D budgets small, often rushed to market and patched after deployment. You're not really making much of an argument when you compare something to a MMORPG and assume people think that means bad. Lets face it, they make the money, have the audience and the budget. We here on this board are fans of TTRPGs but lets not try to pretend none of us play MMORPGs.

Adding options at the system level is good. Adding options at the table level is hard. Removing options at the system level is bad. Removing options at the table level is easy. This is not complicated.

Something like Tactical Shift is more magical than martial healing.
Telling someone to move over a few feet is magical now? :| I weep for this generation.
Given the laziness and morbid obsesity amongst D&Ders, being able to convince someone to get on their feet, do some heavy exercise, and use their words to make them be healthier must seem magical.

I finished "The Hammer and the Blade" last night. Egil and Nix are great characters. I really enjoyed the book, and will definitely be on board for their next adventure.

I like the choice to tell this story well into their adventuring careers. There is so much history, now, that I'm eager to learn, in addition to simply anticipating their next adventure itself. This particular adventure proved that even these two haven't seen it all. I enjoyed seeing them wrestling with the type of men they choose to be. They have clearly seen and lived a lot, in their days, but this story moved even the jaded adventurers themselves.

There is also, clearly, a history and depth to the world that is largely a mystery to many of its inhabitants. I look forward to solving some mysteries alongside these characters.
Much appreciated, Tallric.  Delighted that you enjoyed.  The next book of Egil and Nix, A DISCOURSE IN STEEL, hit shelves at the end of June.  

Lord Manshoon, thank you kindly.  :-)
