Hello from California!

Postby AmPm » Wed Jan 18, 2017 2:24 am

New owner of the TDE 5e, very much looking to try it out with my group. I just wanted to say hi and thank the contributors for the content on these forums.

The character creation seems like the most daunting part off the game (we play Hackmaster so complex combat is a given) simply because there is little guidance.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi!

Hello and Welcome to Aventuria ;)

Character Creation is a bit of work, but its not that difficult. Choose a Race and use the rest of your AP to buy skills and abilities (and (dis)advantages). Thats basically it. The premade professions are good for first impressions what a regular character may look like, but the most important thing to know is that they are completely optional and dont give any advantage over freely buying your skillpoints. You can start with the profession and alter it freely, that is probably best for beginners in TDE with roleplay experience. (for example Take the hunter and "sell" his Bow skill and "buy" polearms or crossbow to create the kind of hunter you want)

Hackmaster is a copy of AD&D 1st edition where everything is a joke. If you didn't play AD&D 1st the game might seem a little weird to you.

That would be true of Hackmaster 4e, 5e is a mostly serious game with a couple silly holdovers from 4e.

5e Hackmaster is really is own game system without any real similarity to 4e or D&D other than classes.
