Pathfinder Classes in D&D 5E

So one of things i really like about Pathfinder but don’t have in 5E is all the classes. Not so bothered about the archetypes. They are nice to have, but most are pointless or are just themes. Have statted most of the races i want, monsters are pretty easy to convert or re-skin and i […]

D&D 5e Geniekin

Having read the other blood of books and ARG i was pretty excited by the prospect of blood of elementals. Shame it has very little new crunch, instead filling half the book with info on the planes. Anyway, i still think the geniekin races are great, especially for an arabian setting. So here are my […]

Tiefling Sub races for 5E

So owning Pathfinder Blood and Fiends* (and loving it) means i’m a bit under whelmed with the options for Tieflings in the 5E PHB (as in none). So i present a set of sub race options. Essentially the main bits are the same but they all have different spells (replacing the standard 3) and Attribute […]

5E PHB review

When next was announced i was intrigued. Then i played the first playtest and was not. Basically lost interest overnight and gave up on 5e. When the previews started coming out my interest picked up again and i preorded the starter and just picked up the PHB from Patriot games which happens to be a […]

Playing with the D&D starter set

So we decided to run the D&D starter set last week. We had been planning a star wars game but there was a TPK in the first session. Imagine that! technically the characters are KO not dead, so i can bring that game back whenever i want. Can’t see me playing much other than D&D […]

5th > Pathfinder

So after a few more days i’m revisiting this: In 5E’s favour • Advantage rules rather than lots of +- to refer to • Attack bonus and AC on lower scales so all monsters are useful at all levels • Skills default to attributes, with simple bonus rather than ever increasing skills and skill DCs […]

Pathfinder & 5E

I have tonnes of Pathfinder books but due to lack of time and complex nature of game rarely get to run it, and certainly not past first few sessions. Partly the issue is that I feel I need system mastery to GM it but there is too much system to master. On the other hand […]
