    I think I like this design the best: Where's the door? When I DM, I interpret the bit about "uses an action to examine the image" very liberally. For example, someone spending an action looking for a secret door would be entitled to an Intelligence (Investigation) check even though they didn't explicitly say they were examining the image. Or, if the walls are poisoned thorns, trying to recall...

    So much nice stuff to come home to! :) Correct, accept technically the shove is not an attack, rather a "special attack" resolved as an ability check. Either way, I agree with you that your hypothetical feat would not add damage to a shove. Actually, what we are discussing is the difference between the set of integers (which includes 0) and an empty set. A punch by a character with...

    To put metagaming in a slightly different context to showcase a few things, let's look at two cases of metagaming in baseball. The first is the current trend towards statistical analysis of long-term play to build rosters (ignoring that roster building is meta to baseball as well). The movie Moneyball showcases this in an entertaining way (or, at least, I enjoyed the flick). The second...

    be careful of doing this much around a puzzle. As a player once we were so fatigued that when presented with a puzzle that the DM expected us to solve in real life we just went "my pc will sit down and spend as long it it takes to figure it out. What is the DC for my intelligence check? How many successes do I need to get before I solve it?"

    Silent Image is detected as an illusion not only if it is interacted with, but also with an action used to make an intelligence check. Sure, I like your idea, I also expect the party enemies to use the same tactics. The world is magical, make it so!

    Okay, let's try again. In a wargame, yes, you can exploit rules and that's likely metagaming (gaming the game), but you can also know your opponent, and know that when Bob plays, he likes to flank left, so you can set up a feint to draw in Bob's flanking left and then crush it. This is also metagaming; you're using your out of game knowledge about how Bob plays to beat him in the game. ...

    I have to agree with pemerton, this IS meta-gaming. The players know that they need to work together in order to have an enjoyable game experience. There's no reason for it which arises within the game, except secondarily as a lampshade over the fact that it is driven by necessary table dynamics. This is why problems like thieves and paladins not being able to get along are an issue, because the...

    +1 for giving a thoughtful response. In war games, we call the players that game the rules, rules lawyers, vs metagaming. Could you call it metagaming? Sure, and that puts you right back into my point is that there are acceptable and unacceptable levels of metagaming in RPG's. Pretty much the same with war and board games where there are acceptable and unacceptable levels of rules lawyering....

    I think we're having a fundamental failure to communicate, here. Settlers and Squad Leader both have metagames. Granted, Settlers' meta is a bit light, but IIRC there are a few ways to use SL's rules to achieve unintended outcomes that allowed for a higher win rate. That's meta -- treating the game as something to be gamed rather than played. Again, playing the game cannot be metagaming....

    The OP opened the question more broadly than that: "Also note that it doesn't matter if the PCs start at 3rd or 13th.

In some cases you may be handing them less of a reward, and more of a plot complication, depending on the situation.

    Even if a setting is working as a Point of Light theme (which the classic standards of modern D&D's prepackaged, high resolution settings - eg Forgotten Realms - fundamentally do not), there is still going to be communication that significantly exceeds that of European Middle Ages and Feudal Japan (which weren't short on communication themselves). - Adventurers are going to be coming back...

    Depends on the Demon Lord. The ones of average intelligence tend to get crushed by the party. The ones of high intelligence tend to crush the party. Understanding and utilizing good tactics can make a HUGE difference. Demogorgon gets an honorable mention even though he "only" has 20 Intelligence, since his tactics specifically say he uses overwhelming force early and often.

    I like the punk riders of Rohan. And why didnít I think of this 1986 classic sooner?

    You're absolutely right. I had forgotten that. It's been rather a while ;)

    This is just not correct. The reason we have a number for 0 (well, one of them) is to distinguish the mathematical symbol that represents a nil value from actual nothing. I have 0 apples, but I donít have 0 floogltyflorps because there is no such thing as a floogltyflorp for me to have 0 of. Damage is not among the effects of hitting a creature with an attack with a net.

    It's just unique is really hard in Star Wars. Some things are not very common and would require a decent knowledge of the old legends material to even recognize. One trick in RPGs is change names or file numbers off. I had a blabbermouth player who had read a lot of adventures. I printed one out stuck a different cover on it and he didn't recognize it. Unless you're playing with hardcore...

    My last campaign, MonsterTown, was ruled by an uneasy alliance of 5 Big Bosses: A medusa vampire warlock; a fomorian wizard; a beholder cleric of the Elder Elemental Eye; a red dragon paladin of Bahamut; and a half-fiend minotaur fighter-sorcerer. They were all nominally ruled by an ancient red shadow dragon who lived above a bottomless pit.

    I think the two-barbarians-vs.-one-wizard "problem" is easily fixed by examining one's presuppositions and adjusting them for this game.

    Yeenogu can do the following each round if he puts all his energy into attacking: Attack action: 3 flail attacks, each 1d12+9. One of those 3 is likely to deal an extra 2d12 damage. 3 Legendary Actions: 3 more flail attacks, no possibility for extra damage. If he's in his lair, he can create a spike that does 6d8. So 8d12+54 + 6d8. A base range of 70 - 198 and and average damage of...

    I remember playing a bit of 2E in high school. I came in late during the campaign. We encountered a troll, and the other players informed me that trolls in the game were vulnerable to fire and acid. So that's what we used to defeat it. When we started a new campaign in 3E, our new characters were never forced to "relearn" this weakness. It was understood that these were things that our characters...

    How committed are you/they to continuing this city scenario? If a change of pace or scene is called for, this seems like a good opportunity. Two scenarios that would work: 1. The PCs are sentenced to hard labour at a remote mining camp the Church owns. En route there, the caravan is attacked and the PCs break free, starting again in a new location. 2. The PCs are sentenced to the whole...

    I don't think there really can be anachronisms if it's a different world. I mean, while some technology is obviously built on earlier stuff (like you probably wouldn't have jet airplanes without propeller), sometimes it's just people missing something really obvious (like say, stirrups), or a technology that is invented, but never really regarded as more than a curiosity (like steam engines and...

    Not if its a Schrodinger's Gorge spanning a river (with egress into the safety of the forest on the other side) and you've got an overwhelming enemy force chasing you on horseback through the badlands (and the success or failure of the Skill Challenge is riding on this last action declaration/Group Check!)!
