    It's player-created material. The most common homebrew is for D&D 3.5, but a lot of different systems get love, including original systems created by people on here.

    Please feel free to PM me any thoughts on my homebrew (or comment in the thread if it's not too old).

    Basically, it's people creating their own custom gaming material-- new classes for 3.5 D&D, new systems, patches/"fixes" for existing systems, and the like. This particular forum is very fond of 3.5 edition D&D, so you'll see people making new material for pretty much every aspect of that game-- classes, races, monsters, spells, feats, items, whatever.

    A non-narrativeist, generic rules-light system, by me. Now officially released!

    homebrew is a collection of material or finished product of any sort that is not officially sponsered

    It finds the naming origins in old alchoholic beverages that one would make at their place of residence

    hence Home Brew.

    I want you to show up in my threads, PEACH. I just thought you knew the invitation stood, so I never bothered to include the tag. You never show up.


    Ingredients

    2oz Djinn
    5oz Water
    1 Lime Wedge


    Instructions

    Pour Djinn and tonic water into a glass filled with ice cubes. Stir well. Garnish with lime wedge. Serve.

    If there's some legitimacy to that, I could have sworn that I've commented on your homebrew before; is there anything you've done recently you'd like me to look at?

    These sum it up quite nicely. Despite not being a drinker at all myself, I still love the name Homebrew x3

    Honestly it's more like an invitation to come into your topic and be very rude. I don't have a problem with rudeness or outright insults since I stopped putting Peach in my titles.

    Though this guy threatens to change that view on the PEACH tag simply by giving it a good name again :3

    I've never had a problem with rudeness with PEACH. I mean some people might be a LITTLE rude, but they are even rarer than the people who actually respond in the first place.
