    I'm actually surprised there isn't any OSR streaming, though it wouldn't get the prestige of something like Critical Role since thats got some direct backing from WotC (who also has a host of 5e streams themselves). I imagine they wouldn't push an older edition much....

    Oh yeah, it was a combination of all factors for sure, the assumed grid, long fights (so much HP on monsters!) and tactical nature of the powers and builds just added to it for the new people my group was bringing in. We started having games where it was more like playing Zombicide than an RPG. We still butt up against that with 5e too. Taking time to play something like Dread or Fiasco has helped in bursts to remind people that its not a tactical board game but an RPG. I just prefer something a little more in the middle rather than those two extremes....

  • So, to again bring this back to an actual homebrew thread, I have added some more to the idea:

    Themes
    Redemption

    Salvation

    Mood
    Adventure
    The life of a hero is rarely boring, their connection to the dream draws them to hotspots of excitement as well as repeatedly bringing calls to action to their doorstep.

    Danger
    Heroes very existence cause the world around them to grow more dangerous, they are always at risk if harm and their loved ones doubly so as they don't have the heroes defenses.

    What is a Hero

    My only issues with 4e, (and my groups in general). Came from the match side of things, the power curve as you leveled was very steep and specific. If you didnt build right/get correctly power magic items then the CR system got way out of whack. And even if you did the fights took longer and longer the more you leveled; way too much HP on monsters.

    The only other issue I have had with the power system was that for all my newer players (that came from games like WoW) it gave them a very gamey way of looking at DnD; one that has carried into 5th actually. Its why DnD in general has...

  • So, to start answering my own questions, taken from Camilla s response to Arc (and ignoring the parts that others have already said just don't need to be mentioned) we have this:

    Themes
    Redemption and Salvation

    Moods
    Adventure and Danger

    The question now becomes Redemption and Salvation for who? The PCs? The antagonists? (Note, this does conflict with the the Clear and Present evil thing though, since it is not so clear of an evil if they can be redeemed)

    Assuming we are making a Heroes game, then we have clear Adventure in the hunt...

  • So do that now. Identify what it is you actually want to do and edit the OP with a new opening that says that (but also add a note that it was changed due to feedback and then link up to the point where you have made the change so new readers can jump ahead if they want).

    That said, I think you need to work out what you actually want. You don't like Beast based on some early release and core themes, so why make a game based on it? What about it DO you like? How do you feel a new gameline that is about good guys fighting bad guys will fit into ChroD? What are the Themes and Moods of...
