Yoon-Suin looks pretty excellent

LoA Cool Video, with honors going to the mention of Veins of the Earth.
It's good, highly recommended.
It's an excellent book. Honestly in the top 5 fantasy novels I've ever read, probably the top 3.


I need to read it.
I was thinking of picking up A Wizard of Earthsea literally hours before I heard she passed. Has anyone read it?
RIP, Ursula LeGuin
Creative decisions in general make me dry heave.
I made the creative decision to make everything Wet and Rotting and Wormy and it turns out none of my players are good at handling Moist Horror. No one’s asked me to stop tho.
Uh... congratulations?

Are you sure that it wasn't just because you were playing AW? (Oh come on, you knew that was coming)
We've seen a bit of uptick in bot activity lately. Seems the machines are taking an interest in Republic Reborn, as well as some other older threads.
Well done.
Finally managed to make one of my players dry-heave in my AW campaign.
That's ominous.


I have stared into the abyss. I'm scared.
FR is a good setting, but like most kitchen sink settings, it is not the super coherent in terms of overall vision for the world. At the same time, I find it much better than Pathfinder’s setting (which often feels like wholly different campaign settings crudely stitched together to form a continent). I will agree with the sentiment that FR has too many powerful NPCs but much of that bloat was purged by the time skips that happened in 4E and 5E. Still, I do prefer the world as it was in 3rd edition, maybe a bit before that (but that is probably my nostalgia talking).
I would have said yes circa maybe 1990-2005 or so. Now there are just a lot of much cooler settings out there. It's serviceable and detailed and of historical interest but not really inspiring or novel.
It does have the benefit of name recognition. I've used it as a "gateway drug" with people who are familiar with the fiction universe and want to dip their toes into tabletop gaming.  This was back in the 3.5 heyday though.
