    OOC: First Kalorn will wait for a report from Sooty to know what's ahead. Second, I couldn't wait and I saw that Lorenn has pitons. Kalorn has athletics and survival, and a pair of hand axes he inherited from Tarkol, the one-eyed dwarven ranger who taught him many trick. Unless there are foes nearby ahead, Kalorn will use these tools and skills to lay a secure rope and create a few...

    Faenela watched Bria for a long moment once she was done explaining what she wanted to do with the Kobolds. As always, he didn't say anything, but she did however nod, once. While it didn't say all that much, it still conveyed that she'd do whatever Bria wanted: as far as she was concerned, she was free and alive because of Bria, so she'd do whatever she could to repay that debt. Even if she'd...

    Darts are on the chart titled simple ranged weapons. Daggers are simple melee weapons. While a thrown melee weapon is not a ranged weapon, a dart is. This is highlighted by the fact that a dart is not a monk weapon for martial arts because it is a ranged weapon and monk weapons includes simple melee weapons. What is your cute for darts not bring ranged weapons? I know I was wrong...

    As for story, IMO the lack of a strength-incentivized rogue is a story deficit in the base rogue. There also isn’t currently a “thug” or “enforcer” rogue, which thematically should be a tougher, stronger, less flashy, more brutal, rogue. Someone that just hits harder, mercilessly, without any BS with jumping out the dark or putting on disguises. Nor is there a duelist that isn’t forced to...

    I think the Guardians of the Galaxy template is perfect for a D&D movie. The GotG were a completely unknown C-list comic book property before their movie. The plot is mediocre at best; they're out to get a MacGuffin and stop Mr. Evil Twirling Moustache. It's the dynamics between the characters and fun tone of it that made it good. That's all a D&D movie needs. A party of likeable...

    Just pointing out that a “DPR” rogue that just boosts damage is like a “tank fighter” that just boosts AC or a controller wizard that stuns without saving throws. It does the job but imbalances the game. Removing the skills to boost damage is a imbalanced trade. You’re giving up exploration powers for more combat power. Powers shouldn’t cross pillars. You wouldn’t trade a ribbon power for...

    Thurmas that’s an interesting idea.

The point with the subclasses is to have 1 or more option for the rogue that adds...

    I think the game does allow this to an extent. One of the resources your Crew can accumulate is Cohorts. These can be either a Gang or an Expert. There are several types of each. Your Crew could have a Gang of Thugs to break legs and perform shakedowns, and a Gang of Rooks to deal in vice like gambling and drugs, and then have an Expert that’s a ruthless assassin. Alternatively, you could play...

    Mathematically this is only true if you had a less than 50% chance to hit normally. This is usually not the case in 5e where the average hit chance is somewhere around 60-65% for someone with a max attack stat for their level. In other words, if you had a 40% chance of missing in the first place then disadvantage will turn 40% of hits into misses.

Wherever they want to go with the fiction is where we’ll be hoing. And they seem to be interested in establishing a large criminal enterprise.

    Let me be more specific: a crime syndicate. Not just the PCs as one crew acting independently with the occasional favor from an associate -- the PC crew is instead the core leadership of a structure involving multiple crews planning and executing various criminal schemes semi-autonomously under their banner. Does this come under the game's prescribed gameplay?

    I'd be very reluctant to make a rogue that does more damage per round than an assassin. The rogue doesn't suffer in the damage department, and existing optimised builds using the thief and assassin (or swashbuckler) can already hold their own with any class. The rogue simply doesn't need to do *more* damage, especially not reliably and regularly. That's ignoring the fact the story and narrative...

Maybe that stable boy in TLJ had an awakening too. I won't argue with that. There's a lot that could have been done better in execution ... in *all* the Star Wars movies, not just the latest ones.

    The true-name thing is common in a lot of folklore and fantasy (see: Earthsea; the Black Company). I'm guessing it doesn't say "Frostfell Queen" on her birth certificate, and finding her name will require the players to investigate her backstory, which is always fun. A related angle could be: back when she was mortal, she made a pact or contract of some kind, and if the PCs find it, they can...

    Choosing a weapon is fine, as long as that feature isn’t overvalued in the balance analysis, like it was with the Kensei monk. It’s barely more than a ribbon. There are strength rogue options in 4e. This in no way resembles the slayer. It’s literally not the assassin, at all. The assassin is not a DPR focused rogue, at all. it’s a situationally nova-capable infiltrator.

    I think you underestimate the Grappler feat with this class. Advantage on all attacks against a creature you are grappling is huge. It even nets you advantage on a shove since that is a special attack if you want to give your friends advantage. But if the party is more ranged focused and don't want you to shove the target, no problem you still get advantage on all attacks and the target isn't...

    It doesn’t need to be that complicated, and crossbows function quite differently. A bow isn’t really going to take longer to “load.” And it’s capable of a bonus based on its draw weight. For example, a bow (STR 15) would require a minimum of a 15 STR to draw, and grant a +2 bonus. Even if you had an 18 STR, it would still be +2. A simple rule would be to use the better of DEX or STR, but...

    Fez Spiders might be interesting. Do they hang out with Redcaps? Do they have little carts to ride in? Pot Fiends might be the chillest infernal creatures EVER...though a tad annoying if they’re tapped out. Moobats would be the eternal mystery of the air, capable of echolocation AND deep, loud bellows, producing ammonia and methane in copious amounts. The mystery? How they maneuver...

    No wonder Locar wanted all those security access codes. Otherwise, for comparison, it reminded me of Star Trek: TOS, season 1 "Court Martial" were one with the technical know-how tries to stage their death and creates evidence to blame the death on another. SMEG! And here I thought you were gonna mention RED DWARF!

    I like that. I also let thrown weapons benefit from any feat, class feature, or other trait that is built for ammo weapons. Throwers are cool, in fiction. They shouldn’t suck mechanically.

    Simple. Feign death spell. It makes you appear dead to physical inspection and spells. You can’t be “raised” because you’re not dead.

    The whole 'combat is too long in 4e' thing actually mystifies me. Maybe we played it wrong, or maybe we played AD&D wrong (pretty much skipped 3.x as a DM). It seemed like combat in 1e/2e and combat in 4e didn't occupy a radically different amount of time. They were different, and the time wasn't allocated in exactly the same way, but in most cases I would say combats in AD&D took a pretty solid...

    If you plan to just do your best to walk down, please give me a Dex (Acrobatics) check. Marching order is still important, of course.

    SHANNARA series? MAGIC KINGDOM OF LANDOVER series? His writings were inspired after he received a copy of Tolkien's LotRs in college, after all.

    Nothing yet. I got the book of ultimate traps and mostly just debating at this point. (although a certain trap involving lobsters is seriously tempting). Trapsylvania is a setting book and we finally have Grimtooth's home turf mapped out, and itching to use it. However, it really is of an era where if you don't know how to dungeonhack, you really can get stomped pretty hard.

    Ahh, good old Grimtooth. I remember when the first Grimtooth’s traps came out. The format changed over the years, but they were supposed to be system agnostic. It’s really a matter of determining DCs and damage ranges, really. They work best with an old school, “tell me what you’re doing,” rather than just a roll of the die. Is there a specific trap you like that I can help with? As far...

    Back on topic, I’m still enjoying this season. Mostly simply relationship episodes, which I rather enjoy. Entire episodes focusing on the crew is fun. But they also had neat social commentary episodes, and the awesome one with the hidden Krill. I’ve quite been enjoying the series.

    Does this game support running an organized crime faction? I'm seeing some strategic elements mentioned (particularly hawkeyefan's rundown) that seem a bit too high-level for a heist crew. Or is this something you would have to homebrew to do effectively?

    I just got my copy of Trapsylvania over and am debating. How much Grimtooth can you use in a 5e game before it stops being fun? Any easy ways to convert his traps over? How would Grimtooth compare to any other villain if given 5e stats?
