|#1AeoliusFeb 14, 2004 9:25:20||I started my undersea GH campaign in 1998. Granted, it already had aquatic dwarves, goblins, half-orcs, and kobolds before the release of (3e) Unearthed Arcana. Needless to say, I don't mind WotC releasing products with more aquatic content, as that may encourage more DMs to create undersea adventures and more players to seek them out. |
Since most of UA is declared Open Game Content but is not in the SRD (yet), how many other GH DMs will be incorporating bits of UA into their campaigns? I am tempted to included bloodlines, totem barbarians, and magic item familiars into the next revision of my campaign's background.
|#2GreysonFeb 14, 2004 10:12:13||The original Unearthed Arcana from 1985 was my favorite AD&D sourcebook. I will definitely be taking a close look at the 2004 rendition of that work. I am not into the aquatic aspects of D&D, and I think the 3.5 Ed. DMG covers that topic well enough. But I am interested in the other items, classes and rules in the new Unearthed Arcana. |
By the way, I got mine from Amazon.com for $24.47 and shipping was free with another product I bought.

I do like the undersea environment simply because not a lot has been done with it so there is a lot of room for growth and creativity. In my campaign world, I have even created a massive udersea metropolis of merfolk but never knew really what to do with it. Now there are more avenues open for adventure.

|#5zombiegleemaxFeb 14, 2004 14:36:29||Got mine and am definitely looking at the Domain/Variant Specialist Wizards, totem barbarians (Wolf and Tiger Nomads?), and maybe action points.|
I am thinking of using Action Points as rewards for good roleplaying. Kind of like a coupon to be redeemed later.
All of the combat and damage variants just seem to make it less like D&D.

The Sahuagin of the Azure Sea, a submission by Osmund-Davizid, was also a very well written underwater submission.
