3.5 DMG released Marking the End of the 3.5 Core Wave

For the past 3 weeks WotC has been releasing the core books for the 3.5 edition of Dungeons & Dragons through DnDclassics and OBS. This today marks the release of the final book of the 3.5 Core books with the Dungeon Master's Guide.

What comes next is anyone's guess, but I have a feeling this will go one of a few ways:

  • Wizards will follow up with the secondary core set of 3.5 and move on from there with the various core setting books for the 3.5 edition (Forgotten Realms, Eberron, ETC).
  • Wizards will finally release the d20 Modern books to wide release through OBS and may even include some of those long sought after "proofs" that never made it to the public (I'm looking at you d20 Supers!)
  • Finally, what I think is most likely, is that Wizards will move on to a slow release of another edition of the game ... my bet would be 2e.
Wizards seems committed to correcting the mistakes of its past and fully embracing the online media culture of the 21st century in such a way that seems almost natural and not as negative to its pre-existing fan base (I'm looking at you 4e spot light videos!)

  1. Now, now, now, the 4E spot light videos weren't terrible. First, it gave us ample warning of what kind of game 4E would be, and it helped me adjust my expectations accordingly. Before hand, I was SUPER excited about 4th, the videos made me check my assumptions. Secondly, it reminded people that gnomes are actually pretty awesome.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.















The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.


More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
