    Rodrigo & Weed Rodrigo skewered the large Pterafolk's knee with his rapier and bashed it on the head with the pommel, but the brute refused to fall. Instead, it swung the large bone club with a fury that drove the quick-footed swordsman back into the cave. Weed slung a stone which clattered along the floor, far too short of his mark. Some crazy rolls, that Orokos. Damage Taken: (BGs)...

    Right. I kind of naturally thought of it in terms of 4e, but this is a really big problem with running games which focus on 'story' using classic versions of D&D (or 3e or 5e either). There is simply no framework for regulating what winning and losing mean. This is why projecting a 'combat like' system into all aspects of the game is so revolutionary in 4e. I found nothing more telling in the...

    Right, you might have some sort of resource(s) that represent (IE are explained as) 'being a noble', but they're still simply based on some dice pool or set of character distinctions, and the other players' PCs equally have 'stuff'. Some might actually work out to be more advantageous than others, or players might deploy them with greater or lesser skill at play, but they should have roughly...

    Max you realise given your above relationship between knowledge of character hit points and metagaming, players will inadvertently metagame. The only way to realistically (with assurety) say that your players don't meta on this issue, is if the DM was the sole bookkeeper of the characters' hit point scores. In a similar vain, some on Enworld (me included) in an attempt to stamp out meta play...

    Hit points are for the player. The PC doesn't know what hit points are, or how many he has. So if the PC acts on knowledge the player has(hit points), and that the PC doesn't have(hit points), then that is metagaming.

    So if I'm understanding you, the DM is a jerk if he ignores the players' signaling when they want to use knowledge of weaknesses they have, but he's not a jerk if he ignores the players' signaling that they want to know the weaknesses of unique monsters. So now you've established that the DM isn't automatically a jerk if he ignores player signaling. Now I have to ask, though, where's the line...

    I like this quite a lot. I like how it gives "superiority dice" to the barbarian in an interesting way. Assuming you attack roughly every round, and crit about as often as you spend a round not attacking, you basically can spent 1 momentum die per round. That's +1d4/1d6/1d8 damage per round, which seems about right, when compared to what Frenzied Berserkers can do with bonus attacks. Some...

    That's just plain wrong. Cheating means that it gives an unfair advantage to the player. Do I dislike metagame cheating? Yes. Because it gives an unfair advantage to the players. It's also a fact that it's cheating in my game. It's not a "claim." So first, I've said at least a half dozen time, maybe more, that it's cheating for MY GAME, so it's pretty darn disingenuous for you to...

    I don't see any evidence to support your theory. At the scale of D&D, print is profitable. There was no noticeable dip in sale of core books when the digital products came out later. Since these are core books, outside a few replacements it 's mostly new players. And they are still buying them at the rate they were before the digital products. In other words, the digital products had no real...

    I think I like this design the best: Where's the door? When I DM, I interpret the bit about "uses an action to examine the image" very liberally. For example, someone spending an action looking for a secret door would be entitled to an Intelligence (Investigation) check even though they didn't explicitly say they were examining the image. Or, if the walls are poisoned thorns, trying to recall...

    To put metagaming in a slightly different context to showcase a few things, let's look at two cases of metagaming in baseball. The first is the current trend towards statistical analysis of long-term play to build rosters (ignoring that roster building is meta to baseball as well). The movie Moneyball showcases this in an entertaining way (or, at least, I enjoyed the flick). The second...

    Okay, let's try again. In a wargame, yes, you can exploit rules and that's likely metagaming (gaming the game), but you can also know your opponent, and know that when Bob plays, he likes to flank left, so you can set up a feint to draw in Bob's flanking left and then crush it. This is also metagaming; you're using your out of game knowledge about how Bob plays to beat him in the game. ...

There's no reason for it which arises within the game, except secondarily as a lampshade over the fact that it is driven by necessary table dynamics.

That's meta -- treating the game as something to be gamed rather than played. Again, playing the game cannot be metagaming....

    Yup, I agree. I did miss that part about 3-13.

    Two reasons I can remember (this was 30 years ago!): one, that I simply didn't think of it; and two, that I was trying to run the module as written as closely as I could, and when the wagons finally appeared in the writing there was no mention of any enchantments on them.

    Schroedinger's Gorge is so going on a map somewhere in my game world! :) So zero to hero then, only in a financial/capitalist way rather than social. Perhaps a better term for a PC's progression might be "little fish to big fish".

    Lanefan Why not simply say that the assassins, keen on keeping their lair hidden, had somehow managed to obtain an enchantment that kept their wagon from leaving tracks? Thereís almost always a fictional way to address such concerns.

    You forgot to mention the more telling question: has (or should have) the Troll heard how to defeat the PC?

    Pielorinho started a thread Maze at first level
    I was playing around with goofball uses for Silent Image. The classic usage is as a wall, to separate the enemies. And that's great. But it occurred to me, why limit yourself to one wall? Anything that fits in a 15' cube is allowed. And you know what fits in a 15' cube? A 15' square with a 10' ceiling, that's full of a maze passage. like so. Cast the spell centered with the enemy on...

    Yeah, same here, but "hero" as a generic term meaning "the later stages of protagonist development" is a lot shorter to type! :) I wonder if he was more surprised by things he found in his research, than by what he wrote using it. Guess we'll never know. To me-as-player the observer part comes later, when I read the game log. To me-as-DM the observer part comes both during play and then...

    I just looked them up on a site that discusses them, and even goes so far as providing super grainy clips with degraded audio. Iím sure those who saw them back in the day would call that an improvement.

    I agree. In addition, her ability to cast Planar Ally at will (allowing her to summon a Yochlol or other demon every single turn) is pretty potent.

    The OP opened the question more broadly than that: "Also note that it doesn't matter if the PCs start at 3rd or 13th. " I'm noting that it may matter what the levels and level ranges are, for some rewards. In some cases you may be handing them less of a reward, and more of a plot complication, depending on the situation.

    I'm currently working my way through "Fringe" which never made it to syndication and the Blu-Ray collection finally came down to a price that I was willing to pay. The "Blake's 7" collection DVDs are double that price :(

    Emergent behavior emerges. It is the the whole having behavior not found in any of the particular parts. The thing that emerges is not necessarily complicated or simple - so long as it is unexpected from just looking at the individual parts.

    Right, thanks for reminding me about that! I bought that article from DMs Guild a few months ago, it's very good. I actually prefer that version of Lolth over the one I posted - she has some more interesting attack options and has both cleric and wizard spellcasting abilities (as per her AD&D original stats). I like her poison breath also. The limited magic immunity (she has it in both versions)...

    Well, considering they're launching a Section 31 show, it would be hard for it to be dead. But, I can see the show being about Section 31 trying to root out this AI Control. Would backfill a LOT of canon about ST really. As in why AI is barely used by Star Fleet and virtually no robots or androids (Data excepted). I have a sneaking suspicion that the Red Angel is Burnham, but, I rather...

    Well, if you take it that way, we fundamentally cannot measure the complexity of a game except for a particular table, and then only after the entire campaign is completed, and we know what rules did get used, both official and house-rules. At that point, there's not much more to say, because this isn't practical or constructive. Moreoever, I don't buy it. It seems perfectly fair to me to...
