    Lanefan, if you're still around, do me the favour of trying the matching link in my post #16 (it's the 2nd link)?Nagol - there are three links in post 16. The first and third ones work fine for me. The second, or middle one, gives me the same error I noted above.

    First, we must establish what a given society views as just. In fantasy worlds, we regularly inject out own ideals of justice, and quite rightly so, because 99% of us aren't experts on medieval justice, and anyway Faerun and Eberron aren't Medieval Earth. So, do we just run with that, do we lean in to the perception of incredibly harsh and brutal "justice" in pre-modern times, or do we...

    It's overall flatter, but actually less gradual. The fighters maximum number of attacks is half as much in 1e PHB as in 5e (2 vs 4), but the jump to halfway, then max happens at levels 6 and 13 in 1e. In 5e they're spread between 5, 11, and 20.

    I considered that for a while, and it does shine in its simplicity. My only issue with that is that there would be no reasons *not to* TWF. Why fight with a rapier and the other hand tucked behind your back instead of two short swords? Why should the rogue only attack with one dagger? The gamist in me feels that there’s something wrong if one avenue is plainly more advantageous, baring special...

    Damage dealing spells should probably auto scale, they just don't need to auto scale at the same rate they used to 1D/level so having them scale like cantirps wouldn't break much. Compared to other spells DD isn't exactly great dealing less damage than it used to (except at lower level) generally and vs stuff with 2 or 3 times its hp.

Whether a difference is jarring is up to the people involved in a game, it's not an objective matter that you get to sit back and arbitrate whether people jarred by it are wrong.

    Magic armor was more plentiful than magic armbands generally. I did have a level 12 Druid (1E) with a -5 or so armor class due to things like that but it wasn't exactly normal over a fighter -in +2 platemail and a +2 shield. And the +2 was conservative and was probably level 4-6 or so not level 12. A wizard in fighter level AC was not a massive problem by itself though as there were still...

    I'm sorry, but your examples are not "controlling the actions of the player character". If I put all my resources into being the most Persuasive character in town, and the DM will not allow the the king be persuaded to give way all his treasure, he didn't "control my actions". He only controlled their effect. It's not loss of player agency if the guards don't let you into see the king. ...

    And those are already possible. Twinning any of the weapons that aren't already usuable for TWF without a feat is just less good than using them with a smaller weapon or shield. No, shortswords are not a "proper sword". I refuse to believe that you don't know that I'm referring to longer weapons like the classic viking sword and the classic cruciform "knight's sword".

    Yeah, rapiers are a bad weapon to twin. Like, there are examples of it, but it’s super awkward and was generally not recommended by the masters. On the other hand, twin gladii or twin eskrima sticks are examples that actually make a lick of sense. That’s already possible, they’re called shortswords.

    While I'm sure there's a set of rules used by people playing 1e that did this, the PHB and UA rules didn't - PHB has attacks of 1/1, 3/2, 2/1 (at 1/7/13 for fighters) and UA has specialist attacks at 3/2, 2/1, and 5/2 at those same breakpoints. (Missile weapons had different rates of fire, but none with 5/4).

    This looks like a huge buff to casters with very little downside. You can maintain your highest level buff and as many lower level ones as you can afford to spend up cast slots on, which is a huge power jump and a straight buff - the caster can use single concentration spells just as before, but also has the option of stacking them by upcasting. The downside is that you get disadvantage on...

    People play games for a number of reasons. Particularly a TTRPG like D&D. To say anyone participating in any form of entertainment are doing so for selfish reasons, is a gross generalisation. People could be playing as a way to socialise and co-operation with friends in communal storytelling. Some people play because they enjoy entertaining their friends.

If you eliminate the effect of those choices you are in fact infringing on the players agency of their character by removing changing character personality at your whim. Player: I want to be a master thief, so I am going to play rogue with a expertise in stealth and thieves...

    LOL how is a single class balanced in a game where other classes go from useless to overwhelming the statement is not meaningful. Balance is dependent on context ie balanced with regards to what? (Thief was useless even at high level it never got its shine in the sun without bizarro world adventure designs)

    I wasn't suggesting that anyone should go away and play another game, just that if you like granular detail and having a handful of different "see in the dark" abilities, you're likely to be often at odds with the 5e design philosophies, and Pathfinder is a good game if you enjoy specificity. That's not being dismissive. I'm not contending the "darkvision isn't too common" in 5e, that would be...

    I'm currently playing a Tempest Cleric 6/Storm Sorcerer 1. The sorc level massively helped me fill the tank role for my party: Booming Blade (with War Caster), Shield, and Absorb Elements added a lot of resilience and stickiness, and I'm having a blast. -blarg

    All of this is hogwash. The side in favor of skill verse skill for persuasion isn't in favor of persuasion being if you lose you have to go along with anything. Only that you were persuaded. It's not a doesn't work at all or you are a slave to whatever plan or idea was trying to be gotten across. Only that you are persuaded to help. It's up to the player than is role playing that character to...

    This is the second in this series of One Page Adventures for D&D. The limits are simple: everything has to be on one single page, one side, of A4/letter-size paper. This one involves a desert, warring tribes of bullywugs, and some magical talismans, and is called Croaking Sirocco, based on an adventure by Kyle Carty. The first One Page Adventure was The Business of Emotion, which I...

    Hardly. You are taking only part of the point. Broadly speaking, in the history of literature and film, female characters are far too frequently defined by their role in the male character's life. They are most often defined by their sexuality. It is, as I said above, cliche. That's the real point - there are already tons of female characters who are the male's significant other, in one...

    Hmm, roll again and don't get a 1. Otherwise, the discount is only 20%. It turned out that the elite bow was a family heirloom on display but not for sale. Heh.

    My apologies. When I read your other post I thought you were implying Cantrips were save-based, and neglecting to include all the attack-based ones. But, You forgot Ray of Frost. :) At any rate, whether requiring an attack roll or a save, cantrips can deal zero damage if either the attack misses or the save is made. I think that is the key point we both understand.

    Well, guess we can make stats for Transparent Particle (Tra-Par) weather, a random roll, I guess. Seems like the highest the concentration in the air, the more effective the Lifting gear works. And "Tesla Drive"?
