There is a current discussion going on in the gaming community at large about where certain publishers and others in the community stand politically. The Tavern, and by extension, your bartender, is very much apolitical. That apparently is a political stance detested by both extremes. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/tavernchat/messag…
 
We were promised the LotFP Referee Book in January of 2019, and even that date was supposed to be a joke, as it was so far in the future it would be completed far in advance. Here we are in September of 2021, and the Indiegogo page hasn't had an update since Feb 28th, 2020. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lotfp-hardcover-referee-book#/updates/al…
 
When we think Basic D&D, we usually think of Holmes, Moldvay, and Mentzer. We don't usually include Troy Denning and Doug Stewart to the Basic Set Masters List, but they do belong. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/tavernchat/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/tavernchat/support…
 
As mentioned on ENWorld, there have been 9 TTRPG Kickstarters that have surpassed 1 million dollars in backers' money.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that we will be losing Doug Rhea - founder of NTRPG Con - in the coming days. Doug is the founder and driving force behind NTRPG Con, and his presence will be sorely missed. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/tavernchat/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/tavernchat/support…
 
Earlier tonight I played in Session Zero of JoetheLawyer's Fantasy Heartbreaker. The session was a blast, not because of the system (which is fine and mostly familiar) but because of the players. If your online group already knows each other, emulating a face-to-face experience is easier than many think. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.…
 
We are reaching critical mass when it comes to the first generation of RPG creators, and it no longer surprises me to find out we've lost another, although it saddens me just the same as it ever did. Social media allows you to reach and thank those that have had an influence on your life, as a gamer and beyond. Thank them now, because tomorrow may …
 
In this episode of Crit Chat we're back from break and talking about Elves, existential age horror, and our movie watching issues.

You know the trope: you all meet at a tavern. But why is that? What makes a Tavern, the local watering hole, such an integral part of kicking off so many RPG adventures? There is a certain brush you paint with when members of your development group and playtesters leave glowing reviews for your product and fail to mention their connections to it. I…
 
GenCon 2021 has announced that there will be a mask mandate in effect for all attendees, vaccinated or not. They also hint that a vaccination mandate may come into effect prior to the convention. https://gencon.blog/2021/08/06/august-health-and-safety-update/ I don't care what your personal beliefs are if you want to be friends on social media. I w…
 
We often talk about the skills one needs to learn as a GM/DM, but what is often overlooked are the skills one needs as a player. These skills are often real-life social skills, and I touch upon them in this installment of Tavern Chat. Our dog Danke enjoys exploring on her walks. We let her lead the way most times, but on occasions, we must redirect…
 
Many jobs have moved to work from home and many tabletop campaigns have moved to Virtual Tabletops -VTTs-. Are we picking up new creators as folks either work from home or are home with enhanced unemployment benefits? Are the changes we have seen in the method of play - the jump in virtual play and virtual conventions - here to stay? Benoit hit his…
 
D&D Beyond canceled a contest where they offered digital prizes and claimed rights to use all entries. Lesson learned the hard way. Yep, TSR3 has or is in the process of, abandoning at least three graphical trademarks. There is an update on the Marmoreal Tomb Kickstarter - Benoist has hit his first due date and succeeded. Sadly, Brian Fitzpatrick o…

I need to choose a style of play for my next campaign. It will have my old group of players from high school and college and will be either an adventure path, episodic, a hex crawl, or a mega-dungeon. Wherein I talk a little bit about BFRPG, the OSR's oft-forgotten gem, and a bargain too. This is an affiliate link to BFRPG on Amazon: https://amzn.t…
 
Over 40% of D&D 5e players are under 25. How do we get the OSR to tap into that demographic? I was watching Professor Dungeon Master over at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCD6ERRdXrF2IZ0R888G8PQgand I realized he had it right. A sandbox is about choices, but not limitless ones, at least not if the DM wishes to retain his sanity ;) --- Send in a v…
 
Social media in the OSR has been a shit show for the last two weeks or so. When official business accounts argue with the gaming community and try to win arguments, you know it isn't going to be good. A look at some Kickstarter that have failed to deliver, years after they claimed they would. Far West, Ernest Gary Gygax Jr.'s Marmoreal Tomb Campaig…
 
Bad Mike & Tenkar return to the scene of the crime, with a follow-up and updates to last week's episode on the latest iteration of TSR. Plus, LaNasa threats of legal action are nothing new.

Mike & Tenkar look at the latest company to bear the initials TSR. Who are they, what have they produced, are they the inheritors of the Original TSR, what are their plans for the company and more. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/tavernchat/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/tavernchat/support…
 
There's a press release stating that the original studio of TSR Games is back. As a homage, perhaps. But this isn't the REAL TSR, which is owned lock, stock, and barrel by WotC. And just who the heck is Woderfilled and why did they put out the press release? There's a new TSR, which claims to be the return of the original TSR. What is it, what is i…
 
Ken Whit Whitman is involved in yet another film-based Kickstarter. No, his name is not on the tin directly, but it's still on the tin as Little Monster's Entertainment. The Trove has been offline since yesterday. Is it gone for good? Was it good for the gaming community or a festering wound? --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/taverncha…
 
I was shown an article by a Taverner which went over some of the D&D 5e demographics. With only 11% of D&D 5e players being 40 years plus, what does that mean to the OSR market, which largely skews older. ’m out and about and figured I’d share a follow up on last night’s episode regarding WotC’s survey numbers and some of the comments in regards. Y…
 
It's a double episode of Gamers' Health. Rach and Tenkar were live at NTRPG Con and a week later did a post con wrap-up, complete with possible con crud. Huzzah! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/tavernchat/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/tavernchat/support

Yep, a triple episode. A podcast Hat Trick and post-con catch up :) D&D White box released in 1974. AD&D 1e released (sorta) in 1977. AD&D 2e released in 1989. D&D 3e released in 2000. D&D 3.5 2003. D&D 4e in 2008 and D&D 5e released in 2014. When will D&D 6e release? I've been told that ALL Pathfinder players moved over to the Foundry VTT. Just ho…
 
Apparently, xenophobia has been removed from the Ravenloft 5e release. I've always seen xenophobia as a primary characteristic of Ravenloft, no matter if the PCs were humans or demihumans, they were strangers and a possible danger. Pathfinder 1e was a success in large part to much of the D&D community rejecting D&D 4e. Pathfinder 2e is a direct res…

I've been asked to offer my thoughts on the new Swords & Wizardry Complete Boxed Set. Well, here are those very thoughts... Apparently, xenophobia has been removed from the Ravenloft 5e release.

Another twofer ;) Paizo has launched their SECOND Pathfinder 2 Humble Bundle in the 21 months since Pathfinder 2 released in the summer of 2019. Two Humble Bundles of new material for a new RPG system are the signs of failure, not just of market share, but of management. Paizo had its birth by being formed to directly support the 3x edition of Dung…
