    Thanks for heads up. I just bought PDF version of Maid: The Role-Playing Game for $6. Downloading now.

    Is Planescape related to CRPG Planescape Torment?

    It is indeed the same setting. Also my top campaign to run if I ever DM in the future (sigh).

    The CRPG is my favourite games of all time (though Morrowind comes super close) and the AD&D campaign is my favourite too, even though I have spent far more time playing Birthright games.

    Which of us are of opinion: familiar RPG edition > new edition

    In Finland AD&D Second Edition was still going strong lately, but 5th Edition and Pathfinder have surpassed it where I play. I don't own any old edition RPG books (all 3 systems I have in print are newest editions), so I have hard time to relate. What about you & gamers nearby? Do you (or them) want to stick with D&D3 or other old game edition because it works for them and/or they don't want to invest effort and resources (money) for the 5th edition?


    So I said, but then I had long days at work and now I've got flu :(

    Around here, it seems like a pretty healthy mix of new players and old going for 5e. Some Palladium players are in the woodwork, at least the last time I found one about ten years ago.

    I kinda jumped onto 5e once my DM's new group got moving and we all bought Player's Handbooks. 3e was...okay. I definitely think 5e is a better introduction to the hobby; 3e was written mainly for people who had already been playing for thirty years. I remember reading through 3e's overwritten academic style ("when you think about it, dungeons are actually flowcharts") and thinking, "okay, but how do you play". If people stick with 3e, I imagine they go for Paizo's Pathfinder version instead.

    The McElroys' "The Adventure Zone" is fun. Usual D&D jokey podcast that takes a surprising turn toward depth and thoughtfulness.
