I'm using simultaneous initiative (with an action declaration phase) and one-minute combat rounds for In the Realm of the Nibelungs, both a first for me and my group. Combat mostly runs via Swords & Wizardry Continual Light, a D&D 'retroclone', albeit with some changes (such as simultaneous initiative).

Hello, all. New poster on the website. I read through the etiquette so hopefully not making any faux pas here

I’m interested in discussing the OneD&D playtest document. I did not listen to the actual Wizards of the Coast announcement regarding the playtest, so I may be reiterating some things they have covered. I plan to convert to the playtest rules at some point, but my current 5e game has a plethora of brand new players who have yet to master the rules as-is, so I’m holding off until a more cohesive playtest is released.

There has been some recent discussion on the discord about 5E play and how it shakes out nearly ten years on. Like all D&D and its close relations, Adventures in Middle Earth has a lot of familiar parts, but I think AiME shows off what can be done with the system.

I am going to run an adventure using the 1981 D&D Basic Set. There have been a number of conversations that hit on directly, or indirectly, this set of rules and as it was my first RPG experience, I want to take a look back. More than a look, I want to run the game as is, by the rules as much as humanly possible. One of the things I have realized over the these conversations is that my recollection of the rules has been innacurate.

About a week or so ago, with so many folks having issues going into quarentine quietly and needing relief, I started organizing some online play. There are about 50 people in the group now and thankfully other folks are stepping up to run, lol. Most of them will be familiar with D&D 5E or somethign equivalent, so I threw together a map on Inkarnate of a region with some trees, a river or two, and some settlements. Also a few ruins.
