    We're nearly 20 years too late for this to happen, but my dream team for this movie would be for Paul Verhoeven to direct a script written by Ed Neumeier . . . What I'm saying is RoboCop and Starship Troopers were awesome, and we could combine them into a wacky movie about warforged overwhelmed by a horde of undead.

It is still useful for a warlock for a once a day spell 10 min slot reset, but of course its a bard, wizard, sorcerer spell because giving it to the class which it is best for would just be silly, lol.

    Working with love, by the way, is like working with transparent sheets stacked on top of each other. So like, the background is whatever's on the sheet at the bottom of the pile. Edit: Working with layers, I mean.

    Yea, you'll need layers. Gimp or Inkcarnate both have it. Of course, VTT's have this capability (plus a lot more) already built in. You can use Roll20 (not a fan) free and do this. Fanatasy Grounds requires a license if you want to save your work (the demo doesn't save) and is my preferred VTT. But most every VTT out there can do an image mask that does exactly what you are wanting to do (plus...

One common complaint about long time players is that there is a lot less character customization then there were in previous editions (and in Pathfinder) and it is missed.

    You want a graphics program with Layers. Each layer can be edited separately. I believe Paint.net will do you well. Set the bottom layer to the map, and then fill the top layer black. And then during the game, make sure you're working with the top layer and you can easily erase the black as you need to.

    i don't use MS Paint but it sounds like you want the black fill on a separate layer above the background image (which is on its own layer). Perhaps try googling the phrase, 'MS Paint layers' for your answer. Cheers, Tim Hartin

    I understand your point, Blue. But for me, so many options and choices, as a DM, is just fluff. It isn't essential to the game in any way and makes the process of picking options over-lengthy, confusing, and tedious: Should I be this? Should I be that? What points should I put where? How can I get my guy ability X? How can I get the most out of my ability Y? And so on... Now, being new to...

    "Glaive" covers a wide variety of medieval weapons, some of which were large and clunky. "Naginata" also evolved in size and shape over the centuries, but the one I'm thinking of is the relatively late model that is basically "katana with a really long handle." The blade is about as long and thin as a katana (hence, my suggested d8 damage die) and the way you fight with it is very swift and...

    The OG DnD movie would be successful right now, if remade with better effects, and some cleaner up writing and acting. Especially with the talent they got for it. The tone was fun, the story was sensible and evocative, and the characters were likeable and played well off eachother. Even the main villain was a blast.

    The problem with javelin throwing is that it often gets subjected to the one free item interaction rule, which means there will be many rounds where you can't do Extra Attack with two thrown javelins. Even in the best case scenario: - Round 1: Start with a javelin in each hand, throw both of them (Action), draw a third after you threw them (object interaction). - Round 2: Throw the javelin...

    Warlock might indeed be a good basis. The class would definitely have to be a level 1 subclass chassis.

And that's just elves. Again, nothing new to 5e. Drow in 1e, 2e got crazy. This is purely optional, why does it bug you if you don't have to use it?

    The D&D rules can be hacked and homebrewed and kitbashed to tell almost any story. But they may be unrecognizable by the time you get done adapting them. The D&D brand, which is what matters for a movie, locks you into a multi-species band of adventurers on a heroic quest in a pseudo-medieval world, fighting monsters which must include at least one dragon. That is a very confining formula. The...

This is because: a) 4e's rules, while not exhaustive, are nearly comprehensive and where they're not, the exception-based guidance is clear, wieldy, and intuitive. b) Further, 4e is a holistic, focused design (which is one of the primary reasons why GMs who don't like...

Even if the race didn't really have that discernible deficiency to begin with. I could see where there's some sort of penalty but way back when I saw some harsh...

    Depends how you define pirate movie, I guess. It certainly reads as a pirate movie to casual viewers, particularly based just on the original trailer. Oh, for sure! I definitely think it could be successful if they make the right choices. But it’ll be a big risk any way you slice it, and I do think going campy with it would give it a better chance than trying to chase the tail of LotR or GoT.

    PotC isn't really a "pirate movie" though, it's a high fantasy movie with a (very) loosely 18th century setting. I'm not saying the D&D movie is a sure thing: but it is not a priori impossible just because it hasn't been done so far.

    Yes, new accounts can be made and the link is in the first post. It costs about $75/year or $10/month. The $10/month subscription for a month lets you download every single Dragon/Dungeon magazine from 4e, so that's a great value for a month if for no other reason.

    Except that every other Pirate movie has been a flop, save a few of the better adaptations of Treasure Island, demonstrating the opposite. Pirates of the Carribian is the exception that proves the rule. But by the time Guardians of the Galaxy came out, Marvel Studios had already earned the general public’s trust. There’s no way it would have been as successful if it had come out before...

    EVERYONE As Morgrym casts his spell, the zombies glance hypnotically towards the berries. they swallow the things almost immediately, still a bit incredulous, but as soon as the fruits kick in, they glance back at the druid with an odd expression. "Good fruit. Good fruit! You made the good fruit, yes?" - one of them inquires as the heroes go along, eagerly seeking confirmation. The group...

    The gaps (which one should expect in any game without extreme over detail) in 4e are filled with expectations of success and skill challenge mechanics where single success checks progress the story to a new stage and failures are "setbacks" and recoverable fail forwards ... instead of save or dies. (The earlier guidelines did have expectations that you present winnable but challenging situations...

    We may should be happy that there isn’t a successful D&d movie. The moment there is the whole franchise likely immediately starts revolving about that cash cow. Right now d&d keeps its independence because it consistently makes money while not making enough for the high ups in the company to really pay attention to it. That all changes with a successful movie.

    I haven't read through the whole thread but it's definitely the weapon and armor chart for me, especially weapons. Seems like that is a common complaint. There isn't enough to differentiate between the weapons. The choice is almost completely removed and meaningless. There absolutely needs to be something else to make it a more meaningful choice, like a weapon system halfway between 3E and 5E....

    I'd say rather that demonstrates that people want that sort of thing. I wouldn't say that Time Bandits is the best example, though it is solid, and comedy is definitely the way to go: Guardians of the Galaxy is a solid recent example, another example of something that, while an adaptation, was not an adaptation no something most comics fans were even familiar with let alone the general public.

    They also very cleverly advertised it as if it was based on a famous work you should have been familiar with. I still remember the first time I saw the trailer for the original, I kept thinking it seemed strangely familiar, wondering if it was a remake of something I’d seen as a kid and forgotten about, or based on an obscure book or something. The way the characters in the trailer talked about...

    To sum up: Wizards have a great list, and the best daily access to them for a arcane class (clerics & druids have access to all spells). This gives them access to fantastic spells - a wider range then other class plus some best-in-breed. Plus the ability to swap out including during down-days to get specific not-all-the-time spells like Simulacrum. Wizards can cast rituals without...

    And I would argue from your spell selection that you have just rolled a FIRE sorcerer. See my previous post about how there are two sorcerer specs that are leaps and bounds more effective than any other. Show me how to roll a blaster build that is just as effective focused around the element of acid, or God forbid poison, which several dragon sorcerers are incentivised to do. Heck, there are...

    Yes, one in which the (secular, at least) meaning of Christmas is core to the plotline, and the main character goes from displaying none of the social virtues of Christmas to displaying all of them. See also “The Grinch who stole Christmas”.
