    The one thing I can think of which could take advantage of this is the Barbarian Path of the Berserker, which gives you a bonus action attack every round during rage but makes you exhausted afterwards, unfortunately that's incompatible with Zealot. The other option, assuming this hasn't been changed, is to use the Illusionist Wizard's Illusory Reality to create the material components using...

    In your post you asked explicitly "Again, I haven't looked at this particular set of numbers. But I can ask you all - do they crunch the numbers for the following scenario? " Its possible you forgot you asked that? After all, it doesn't necessarily serve the dogma to ask questions. You then laid out a battle master with bless etc. The answer is "YES" whatever the source of the values...

    Theoretically a 3rd level Wizard could fill 98 pages just from just the PHB spell list. There are 30 level 1 spells and 34 level 2 spells. If you go with just the spells gained as you level (assuming you always take the max level), a 13th level Wizard should need 102 pages in their spell book.

    Pragmatic case. You got a character that enemy hit on a 20. 1/20. You got a character that enemy hit on a 11. 10/20. You can protect one character by giving ennemy disadvantage on attack roll against him. Which one will benefit more the protection? On a fight where each got attack 20 time, the character with big AC will benefit on average once from being protected. He was already hard to...

    RPGing is generally an ongoing activity. So what's going to happen if the players lose? Until you know the answer to that, it's probbaly premature to talk about toughness of encounters. (I assume it's combat encounters that are being talked about here, but the same thinking applies to other sorts of challenges/situations that a game might involve.)

    5E is a good edition but I doubt its because of how good those 2 feats are. 5E has a few warts, I think the ease of running it is the biggest point in its favor. A lot of the warts also won't crop up in a lot of games as the casual players don't know and the hard core players don't always powergame. We used the -5/+10 feats a lot when 5E came out but the monsters are so weak its usually...

One point of the hardcore monsters is to beef up the performance within the given CR, right?

    1 page per level of the spell, nor just 1 page per spell, so a level 1 spell uses 1 page and a level 9 spell uses 9 pages. Depending on how quickly a DM allows a PC Mage to acquire new spells, a 20th level mage could have several full spell books, definitely more than one each for just the higher level spells.

    No that's a false representation. It's not that you can know in advance which save to prop up. And you can't prop up all your saves. And the caster's in your group should not help you in the first place; spending resources to turn a 100% miss rate into maybe a 90% miss rate is just bad tactics. So no.

    Nothing's stopping them, except that while using duplicants they're torturing people's souls in the witchoil that forms the bond. And most duplicants are cheap pieces of tin that break readily. It'd be really expensive to make ones that are as strong as the PCs are naturally. And there's always a risk someone figures out how to hijack your signal or just punt you out of the body. For...

    I think adventures should be challenging to promote a sense of, well, adventure. This can be done in many different ways. A tough encounter is an obvious one, but I'd encourage you to run a wide spectrum of difficulties as it keeps the players guessing. Besides, even "easy" encounters drain resources from the PCs and that creates pressure within the adventure as well.

    You aren’t engaging with the actual point I’m making. I don’t care about nitpicking. iTunes doesn’t put those tracks on your iTunes library, or add them to iCloud for you, just because you purchased a cd. It allows you to manually rip the files from disc to the library, and it’s a very easy process, but if for some reason you weren’t willing to do that, you’d have to do without or repurchase....

    What's "maximum impact"? If I need a 20 then advantage almost doubles my chance to hit. If I need a 1 to hit then advantage reduces my chance to miss by 95%. Almost guaranteed success seems maximally impactful. If the enemy needs a 20 to hit then disadvantage reduces damage by a factor of 20. Seems impactful to me. But here you are saying reducing incoming damage by 95% isn't impactful.

    You see, I'm confused because the article walks you through how to get your songs from your CDs into ITUNES FOR FREE. And I have thousands of songs on my ITUNES THAT I TOOK FROM CDS FOR FREE. Regardless, I'm done with this discussion. And with certain people.

    Pretty much anything from the Sword's Age of Winters album. Pretty much anything by DragonForce.

    There has to be a reason why 5E is popular, and it's not because it's good, only is good. It must be because you can minmax and optimize in it.

    Like many, it’s not really D&D music, but music that envokes strong nostalgia. For example. The Duran Duran album, Seven and the ragged tiger is an album I listened to over and over while soaking in the 1e hardbacks, so whenever I hear a song from that album, I immediately get flashbacks to those books.

    BTW, another one of my players for my Bluffside game has to quit. (I swear that game is cursed!) So, you guys will get another post sooner than I had originally planned. It likely won't be until Monday, however. Today was a tough day, and my dad is coming over tomorrow to watch the CFL playoffs and have dinner with me and my sister.

    I did not stat them out as an NPC. If I did, it would be 1hp and AC 12. Stats maybe around 6's except for a Dex of ~14? No real attack... Here's what I wrote (Note yet updated with Satyrn's ideas; Bookworms Bookworms are akin to a highly contagious disease for books and parchment and are greatly feared by wizards and sages. The worms are about 1/4 inch long and much smaller in diameter. They...

    I think its how Starfinder is supposed to work, but I haven't looked at the book in a while, so I can't say for certain. Since Loranys and Rodan were built using the monster rules for Starfinder, neither character has all the bells and whistles of a PC with a class. And the statistical values are different depending on the role the NPC or monster is supposed to fill. I can take a look at the...

    When my players moan and complain that an encounter is too difficult I always wonder what is there to a game if there is no penalty for losing. If there is no challenge to overcome why play?

    You’re also paying to have the content in the very useful index and cross reference system provided by DDB. But you also get a new copy of the books, just not a physical one. IMO, it’s more valuable than the physical books, which is why I got the legendary bundle, for others it’s not.

    What I said is 100%, inarguably, correct. It ain’t any kind of nitpick, bud. You don’t get anything for free from iTunes just bc you purchased a cd. You can add your personal library, just like you can in DDB. You’re trying to force a weird nitpick argument wherein you misrepresent what I even said. You do not get anything from iTunes just because you bought a cd. That’s it. Stop...

    I have that trait in real life... And one effect is you have to pay loser attention to make sure you do not mess yourself up by eating food that has gone bad. You also do not get deterred by bad smells like skunks and poopy diapers your spouse will consider it an advantage.

    Not too far off! It’s one of those no recipe recipes. As long as I get in the ballpark, it’s all good. I get 2 boxes of pasta with high surface areas and no long sloppy bits. This time, 1 rotini and 1 bow tie. After cooking it, I toss it with 3 different diced cheeses (this time, smoked Gouda, smoked gruyere, and colby jack), diced deli roast beef (@1-2lbs), mayo & Greek yogurt in equal...

    I tend to give out some information based on the character and the level of the monster. I figure that growing up in the world and with background and training for first level gives out a bit of knowledge. For example, first time the PCs run into skeletons- they know that bludgeoning deals more damage, or that shadows steal strength. Some stuff is obvious like frost giants should not be...

    Except that it's lacking all of the direct and indirect limitations of that spell, such as being a druid. I don't think there you will find a consensus anywhere that thinks that Shillelagh, improved for any weapon, would be a reasonable Paladin cantrip. A CHR focused front liner, a much more powerful framework then Druid for a melee spell. Yeah, we basically avoid paladins dipping...

    Actually, this error the OP made was in interpreting the % Diff. In his table (which is very nice and thorough), it seems he is simply subtracting the probabilities and assumes dividing the difference by 5% yields the effective +/- adjustment that advantage and disadvantage would give. That was his error and oversimplification, but it really is a minor point as the result is close enough. The...

    Some classical Wagner, Ride of the Valkyries and Entrance to Valhalla. Back in the day, we had a party of competing clerics that would sing MC Hammer- Pray, just to make it today.
