Re: D&D to remove inherently evil races

It's probably for their adventures. They've repeatedly stated they're not interested in novels.

Re: D&D to remove inherently evil races

Actually, they might even rework stuff. The drow/elven history lays the basis for a more nuanced approach. The Crown Wars are not black vs white, they're pretty much dark grey vs dark grey. Instead of being the "eeeeevil guys", the drow could have simply been separated from the elves due to the Crow...

Re: D&D to remove inherently evil races

I get where they're coming from--there was a huge discussion last month over Twitter and Reddit, pointing out how WotC's worldbuilding was full of harmful clichés. Long story short, WotC found themselves in a sticky situation, which they TOTALLY brought on themselves. Eilistraee brings an awesome cu...

Re: The Official Eilistraeen Music Thread

It's a fitting song indeed. Rather upbeat, but it keeps mysticism to it, making it especially suited for a prayer. Not that prayers to Eilistraee need to be mystic, as Eilistraee is happiest when seeing artists create and perform (and she delights in sending burst of inspiration to them). Re: flower...

Re: Music, music, music...

So, I've crecently watched Hunter x Hunter. Despite my dislike for the general character design of that anime, despite my dislike of shonens, despite some pacing problems, I must say that certain arcs of the story, as well as the development of certain characters, are simply genial and truly powerfu...

Re: Happy Easter

Happy Easter all! :) Please do stay safe all in these strange times. Stay inside for your own protection as well as that of everyone else, much as the moon might call you to dance outside. Eilistraeens at least know what it is to be isolated from the rest of the world and as such might be able to b...

Re: General wellness check

I'm relieved to hear it's all ok; I was starting to get worried, heh. It can happen to become absorbed in (or, well, thrown off by) a new routine, so don't worry. The important thing is that you're doing well. This quarantine brought an interesting change in perspective, to be honest, in how a lot o...

Re: A suiter

With that said, re: TSR claiming copyright and certain characters being left unexplored, that's a shame. I would have liked to see more of Ye'Cind; he definitely piques my interest. At least, for the Realms, Ed is still giving us lore (that is canon for all intents and purposes, by his contract, unl...

Re: A suiter

Like violence (or nearly anything, really) sex is good in a story when it serves a narrative purpose, when it tells us something interesting about the characters, etc... I'm not a fan of smut (i.e. sex in a story for the sake of having sex in a story), though, much like I don't like gratuitous fight...

Re: A suiter

I don't know if elves--especially gods--have any such customs as a suitor seeking a father's approval. Espeically because, while Corellon does care about Eilistraee, their relationship is explicitly described as strained in Demihuman Deities (due to their different views on the drow and M.O.), so Ye...
