    Ryder shrugs. “We’ll all die sometime.” He runs up to the statue, leaping on it and slashing down on the creature. (if somehow I get advantage, like, from height or something, ) (+ if sneak attack applies)

    If this is the case, you (or your DM) are not fully thinking up challenging situations. 20'x20' white rooms with only one door DO get boring fast, but the PCs should be entering rooms full of descriptions. At higher levels, where PC AC >= 20, use attacks (such as spells) that require a Saving Throw. I was able to challenge an L14 party with an equal number of L4 lizardmen - by having them...

    Thanks, @Dannyalcatraz. That's a shame that a program that powerful can't be used for cross-reference. I've learned one way of doing it, but it's very, very cumbersome. If I do conditional modifiers, it will show me every instance of duplications, but that's only a little helpful; I want to take-what I presume should be-the column header and find out exactly who that character knows from other...

    Sure, though that goes both ways, as your attempt to one-shot may fail miserably, and the combat go longer. ::shrug:: Either way, the spells existed that could be used - on-label or 'creatively' - to Create an Advantage for yourself/allies, be it in combat, or leading up to it. For that matter, 'skilled play' was often about setting things up to your advantage - without benefit of any...

    Now, I've never played 20th level in 3e or Pathfinder. And my 4e game fell apart at the end of the heroic tier. The highest play I've seen is 17-18 in Pathfinder, which was in a pretty long couple sessions. But I played in a 5e 20th level story for four or five sessions. And it worked really well. The characters were mortal and the skilled DM (typically the party optimiser) managed to keep us...

    I don’t see how he’s either. I don’t see how Primus is a god at all, but rather the command node of a planar operating system, directing a defrag ‘march’ across the Wheel. Primus isn’t a being, the way that someone like Zeus is, Primus is planar code — and if deleted, the Mechanus mainframe upgrades a Secundus with the code for a new Primus to direct the system and choose which chaotic portions...

    Sure, IN THEORY. The problem is that 'real' situations aren't cut and dried. So when you start down that path you better be darn sure your assumptions are correct, because you're taking at least 2x more risk (expending 2 actions to achieve a result instead of one). Its very easy for the DM to pull a fast one or things to simply not be what you expect, or just the foo of a bad die roll that...

    The atmospherics I'm talking about don't give detailed prophecy that falls apart if the PCs don't act a certain way. Plus, we aren't talking about doing it an hour in advance. By the time the atmospherics apply, they are in the relevant scene - and a tense scene is a tense scene, no matter how the PCs choose to deal with the issues at hand.

As an aside: this is one reason that I didn't just follow the FATE model...

    True, and it's a perennial issue. Level advancement is key to D&D, but it wasn't initially conceived to cover 20 levels. It seems like high-level spells, for instance, starting at 5th or 6th, were conceived as penultimate expressions of magical power for high-level opponents like liches and the like, only to be acquired by PCs achieving those same unprecedented levels, requiring yet another...

    When looking into the traditions referring to ‘elven chain’, I ended up deciding. Elven chain isnt a magic item. Rather. Elven chain is the high elf race trait to cast the Mage Armor spell as a choice of cantrip. This elven-chain-equals-spell, solved so many problems. It synergizes well with high Dexterity and wizard/fighter flavor.

    Heh. Incarceration would be preferable. These modrons twist/warp/break humanoids, compressing them into shapes--caged with their own bones, which are coated in metals--to create new modrons. The agony of the process, while "unfortunate," is part of what destroys the mind, allowing them to be magically reprogrammed into beings of pure order and obedience.
