    Yes, it would be nice and inspiring if all of the examples in the quoted text were in place to provide inspiration. But they don't actually need to be presented as separate rules. What I mean is... almost everything suggested could be phrased like 'the DC for X is 12, and the DC for Y is 15' rather than 'roll a 2d8 when you do X and roll 1d12 when you do Y'. I think it'd be just fine to have...

    Pretty much the above. The players worked out from the information on the bomb and the journalists invitation what the target was. However really it does not matter if they do or not and it may actually be more fun if they don't . With the information about the time and place of the attack it turned into a Tureky shoot with the A and B teams reinforced by Gale ambushing the terrorists and wiping...

Maybe some powers should need a external source to be reloaded to get a better balance of power.

    I think it's more "You can't ignore the guy who's trying to kill you while you shoot at someone else" that's the disadvantage! But you're right, there's also the "he just knocks your bow and you miss" problem too.

    A given session is in many ways similar to regular Betrayal - you are exploring a haunted house, you discover rooms as you go, and at some point the Haunt begins, and someone plays the role of the bad guys. All that is as you expect. There are two general ways campaign play is different: 1) Many of the game elements are hidden from you at start of play. You don't have full decks of...

    Oh, I agree with you. I'd have all of those limitations be "per day" for the 7 days. But still doing things like walking more than an hour a day will cause it to restart. What can be done during a long rest is very restrictive towards the rest of the party trying to continue an adventure. Actually, the other part that could be worrisome is that normally you can't take advantage of more than...

    I didn't mean to imply you did not care at all about balance. My assumption was that if you gave anything, even a tiny bit, you would take something in return. Spell casters are generally considered among the most powerful classes in D&D (its certainly a lot closer in 5e than previous editions) so adding a little dpr to them is only widening that gap. If you are keeping that extra dpr so...

    For some reason, I always assumed that changing the length of a rest would probably entail changing some of the other parameters as well. If nothing else, you should be able to stand watch for 2 hours each night, no matter how many nights were involved with the rest.

    After a suitable amount of downtime, I would allow them to use the guide's proficiency bonus (+3 or so) in place of any proficiency bonus they may otherwise have for any associated skill checks. So if the player is untrained in Arcana, and a monster related question would call for an Arcana (Int) check, they could use 3+ whatever their intelligence bonus is. If they know more than Volo does...

But when you sit in it one leg is shorter than the other three, and the rest of the dining room is done in light tone country style. Do we still think this is an awesome chair?

    I agree with all of this. And I'll observe that isn't a commentary on the difference between rules per se, but on how they are presented. 5e tries very hard to be setting agnostic. Examples are Cleric Domains (instead of actual deities), general Paladin Oaths, and vaguely defined Warlock Patrons. An interesting counter-example is the UA patron "Raven Queen". Even though I skipped 3e and 4e...

    A week of adventuring wouldn't count as a long rest. The comment I was answering talking about chaning the long rest to one week as well. I would say it's very likely that if you are in the middle of an adventure, getting a week of no strenuous activity would not be the most common. Sure there are corner cases - you ride in a wagon for a week of overland travel with few rolls.

    Not every campaign asks every character to make a mechanical check every week. Sometimes, it's two or three weeks (in-game) before you're asked to roll anything. That may or may not correspond to more than one session.

    That contradicts the post I was responding to: Were you at that table, did guiachi misspeak? Even if they didn't drop "as often", every single drop means the character has disadvantage at everything mechanical outside of combat for at least a week - really sucks for that player, especially if it's multiple sessions before they can get a week worth of downtime.

    Maka looks around in disbelief, noticing that he and Viterro are no longer in the room, but rather, in the open air, under a blue sky, upon a familiar stretch of land. Maka examines his surroundings closely, to make sure that he is not having a vision. Maka asks Viterro, "How did you manage to do that, my brother?"

    So she shook off the fear while she was surprised and is good to go on her turn.

    @gargoyleking & @Fradak From where Harb is, he can't see Tarri and Kasqa's struggles, but he has a very good view of Rodrigo, Qawasha, and Imogen. Chrysagon, on the other hand, can see everyone. Do you both want to concentrate fire on a single pterafolk (say, the one on Rodrigo), or would Chrys go for the one trying to drag Tarri away? In other words, any target preferences here? Edit:...

    And I have no idea what this thing is but it looks terrifying. The Ravnica setting actually seems pretty intriguing, and definitely has the old Planescape Sigil vibe.

    Yup. Crit on 2D6+2. Frightened would still be there if you went before them using normal Init (so if your turn was before Init 15, which we rolled in the OOC), but I'm not going to press the issue if you want to ignore it. You could roll and see if you like. It's always weird when rolling well turns out to be a bad thing.

    Another thing I'm not a fan of in 5e is the fondling an magic item for an hour and you know all you need to know about that item. No identify spell needed. blah.

    So while I am waiting for my Ravnica monster mini sets to arrive I am looking through the Guildmaster guide. They have some very interesting creatures in here, some cooler than others, some a little odd. There's some good choices I wish they had included in the minis set, like the Bloodfray Giant, a Huge opponent with a fantastic picture. However, this "scary" dude has an AC 14...

    How? They've all always been full casters, but having melee weapons as a backup rather than the wizard's crossbow really made that big a difference? They have very different spells, and surely they could have even more different cantrips if they aren't different enough.

    Interlude The Chef was growing impatient, but was always better to have a wall of Bugbear meat in front of you when facing Elvish archers. "Where are those hairy beggars?" he asked no-one in particular. * * * "Go 'way. We sleepin'!" came the deep goblinoid voice from behind the guesthouse door. "But.. but Chef sez yas gotta come!" said the goblin nervously. It was never smart to annoy...

    Fortunately, Vir and Adrian are just able to bring down the final demon. Thorn's enthusiasm is no doubt appreciated if unneeded at this point. This time it seems the dangerous inhabitants of this place are all vanquished. The detour has perhaps been worth it. The hoard of healing magic recovered here will be a boon of great value to the army. With a little work, perhaps a day, the paladins and...

    So, two things- I am always seeing the continued ability of D&D to entrance a new generation. I am running yet another game for "the kids" this coming Friday- largely because of word of mouth and recruitment. There is nothing that makes me more happy than seeing them enjoy the game, and, eventually, go off and start running their own. :) But what I think the quoted portion, discussing the...

    You mean Hasbro, but also what? Hasbro let them put the new edition into OGL form. They're aggressively litigious because they won't let MPMB post their entire published works in a character builder for free without even paying them anything, or is there something else you're referring to? I would also say that if you listed that cast, and then listed a known director and writer, and gave...

    Eh, at this point, 4e ought to just be an income stream to them. By no means saying they should give away the IP, but they shouldn't be worried about 4e rising from the dead in any way that doesn't just give them more money.

    Phar takes a moment to get his own thoughts in order and take a calming breath. He looks first to Caerth, "Yes these men have wronged us, but look at their penitence", he says gesturing to the men on their knees. "Is not their willingness to make such a sacrifice enough to show their value. I have more questions now, than I did when I left my bed this morning. I do not think anyone should be...

    : Tor steps forward and says, "Good. It seems you are not as fanatical and stupid as we first suspected. We have no interest in needless bloodhsed, nor do we take pleasure in the act of killing. We are honorable people, and we were unjustly imprisoned. Now that we are free, we are taking control of this ship, and demanding the return of our confiscated property. If you cooperate, you will be...

    Maka steps up to the image on the forward wall and places his right hand upon the image. To his utter disappointment, nothing happens. He feels the solid stone. Reflexively he pushes on the wall, exhaling in a sigh. While Maka is leaning against the forward wall, Vittero says, "I have an idea. West." An image identical to the forward wall returns to the previously blank right wall. A pattern of...
