    Yeah, I'm not reading the other group's IC, mostly due to time and RP reasons (my character wouldn't know what happened). As for solo vs. mobs, keep lair actions in mind if you want a truly solo boss, too. I'm going out of town for my grandfather's funeral for the rest of the week, so won't get to post again. I will be back next week to play catch up.

    Rapid Tone Diet By looking back at how far you've come, you're less likely to revert to old habits. Another benefit you'll see by keeping careful records is that you'll catch slip-ups in your calorie counting or exercise habits. If these slip-ups go unchecked you could easily experience a major plateau or even weight gain. Yuk! http://supplement4help.com/rapid-tone-diet/

(2) I don't think that this interpretation necessarily needs to be understood as "magic." Ki, for me, is simply some form of latent energy (e.g., life? psionic? etc.) that permeates the world or life therein. The fighter may be "non-magical"...

It might not be the sword he wished for (or the heck it might be) but it should not be a short sword either. So especially for the fighter types give them appropriate stuff Be super careful with heanding out Magic armor, especially...

    At that point I would probably just play Into the Odd.

    Interesting but then you need some penalties associated with wounds, sort of on the level of exhaustion, or else it doesnt really have any flair.

    Depends on the character. Some are human and get great weapon master by lvl 5, then increase Str. Others wait until level 9 if they are a different race. As I said, I've played several different versions of the tank-lock. Doing enough damage to be a threat hasn't been a problem - this isn't a theory, this is a fact. :)

    I've heard that six is possible, but it is not reliable in my experience. It takes into consideration something else. I even started connecting words i.e. AcidAttack instead of Acid Attack in descriptions to lower the chance of invalid rolls. But in general I advise using some outside rollers (right, neurotic? :) )

    I'm playing around with some rules, hoping to mess with how D&D combat feels...but not too much. Instead of movement, action, reaction, and unlimited saving throws, a character would get four actions: Fight / magic: attack or cast a spell Movement: change position on the map, all at one time Defense: make a saving throw or add AC against an attack

    Nope. Harry Potter doesn't get an exception here. It would have, if the chosen one had turned out to have been Neville Longbottom all along, but Rowling wimped out in the end. But for my money, the 1st worst plot device is chosen ones in general. Note how the quality of a Star Wars movie is correlates strongly and inversely with the chosen-ness of the protagonist: Luke-as-random-farmboy:...

    Bubbles doesn't know you guys are there at all. All she knows is some guy flew off in a airship and when she came back someone shot at her. She's still worried there are more villains inside. In fact, I didn't expect someone to be standing watch outside. I was expecting to fly into the building and possibly have a good guys think each other are the bad guys moment.

    In the run-up to 4E I had hoped they would move the term "feat" over to mean active extraordinary abilities, the nonmagical counterpart to "spell". 3E's usage for its mostly-passive modular character features never fit quite right, and its apparent original intent, that these features were rewards for feats of heroism, didn't last much beyond some noncommittal verbiage in the 3.0 PHB, as I...

    Though also a pretty unfortunate name. Extraordinary (EX) and 5e's 'maneuvers' are both much nicer names for the same things. "Exploit" had been used in the community for years to describe broken combos and abuse of mechanics.

    I realize this is a bit of an old thread now, but I have tried everything out there. As a casual painter I also like paints that have a long shelf life and don't require me having to use any thinners. In my opinion, there is nothing that come even close to the Privateer Press P3 line of paints. I wish they had double the colors available though, but they are exceptional paints. ...

    You've impressed me many times over the years, but that's brilliant. To what degree is the character shaped by the player as it levels vs having boons presented by the DM shaping the character?

    Well, "I leap across the chasm to the extent of my remaining movement" is something the character can accomplish within the turn's constraints, as is "I continue my aerial movement across the chasm and land before doing _____" on the character's next turn. If "what you state must be accomplishable on your turn" is the standard, then it's really just a matter of phrasing your words so that you...

    Yeah, like PrCs or a bit like level dips in some sense. I don't know PF well at all, so I can't comment on archetypes. Its more powerful in that it subsumes all these different 'languages' (the feat language, the PP language, the ED language, the item language) of 4e, so now things are more general. So, the leveling... I inverted the concept of level advancement. Instead of leveling up to get...

    You're at least, what, level 8-10 then? I'm just saying in general, a character who focuses on defense won't be very effective. In an easier campaign it doesn't really matter what kind of abilities the characters have, they will succeed. In a more challenging campaign it doesn't matter that they are the last character standing, the party will still get TPK'd. All the defense in the...
