    The first two days of our downtime I spend in my room, coming out only to train, eat, or use the privy. If asked, I am writing out several letters and plans of action. The first, how to spend my time during this downtime (classes, enchantments, etc.). The second, prioritization for my homebase and teams, including new buildings, land acquisitions, and hiring of additional teams. Letters to my...

    That isn’t a result. That’s just a restatement of the player’s action declaration. The goal is to get across the chasm, and the approach is to leap through the air with enough force to do so. Unless there’s some special circumstance, the DM normally says yes to movement and notes any resulting change in the situation. For example, “As you land on the other side of the chasm, the bad guy’s minions...

    In my setting any well off town or city could have Continual Flames all around the streets. It maybe costly at first but it is cheaper in the long run and more healthy for the population. Also it cuts down on man power of turning on light at evenings and refiling oil tanks. Think of it as we are turning in last 10-20 years to LED lights from old incandescent light bulbs. My 3 room...

    that trailer made me laugh, which is a very good sign I've been critical of Zachary Levi being cast for the role and while he still looks too small for the muscle suit, I can let it slide as part of the characters appeal as "a little boys head on a supermans body" - especially if he keeps the comic timing throughout the story. it looks like the DCU is finally on the upswing and ready to fly

    Sometimes when talking about RPGs it's helpful to actually talk about RPGs rather than just make stuff up. From Ron Edwards: this isn't what most people are talking about, when we talk about non-railroady Narrativist play. This is kind of a consensual-storytelling, make-it-up-as-we-go, round-robin type thing. Frankly, it's pretty boring in most circumstances and tends to create wandering,...

    And my power fantasies don't involve being born better than other people, but you don't see me ragging on sorcerers. Not all pacts are transactional and explicit - I would be immensely surprised if a Great Old One knew or cared what a "contract" is. But I feel like it is essential that it's voluntary in some way.

    Yes but the price of rubies is also tied to their availability (and purity and cut for specific items but not for the crap stuff and dust) so if rubies are very rare their base price is higher and the amount of ruby dust needed goes down which makes it easier to find that smaller quantity - unless a GM adds in a setting specific twist to select components. Some GMs have diamonds of certain...

    3e was written from the NPC/world perspective to build a simulation. 5e was written from the PC perspective to serve the needs of an adventuring party exploring dungeons. So what makes sense in the world is the genre and themes that are represented in the campaign. Also, it doesn't cost 50gp, it costs ruby dust. The amount of Continual Flames are limited by the amount of rubies.

    Its easier for me to just think "no pressure so assume they are rested" when the setups dont include natural time pressure. My players see often that theclock moves for NPCs too and by their nature there are often compelling reason to press on. This means that they do rest when they can based on character and circumstance but the short-v-long differences are seen frequently enough to feel...

    The only thing nice about a basic flametongue is basically makes GWM -5/+10 obsolete. Items that don't increase attack but increase damage a lot are good to hand out to non GWM users or even to them if the goal is to get them to use the feat less or make the feat less worthwhile.

Those who want to examine gender inequality in their roleplay have the opportunity to do so, and those who want to escape to a world where those inequalities are negligible can do so as well.

It will round out your Str score too. 1-3 of Warlock would be great to get some face invocations like Mask of Many Faces. Hex could get you medium armor and expanded crit range too. Chain gets you a beefy familiar.

    Abjuration Wizard gets it at 14th level, it's a racial feature for Yuan-ti. Pseudodragons ans Quasits (also possibly other monsters, I'm not sure) have variant rules where they can choose to serve as a familiar, and they then share their Magic Resistance with their master if they're within 10 feet.

    I also want to point out that I think that it’s a reasonable expectation when playing a game, even one like D&D, that something like die rolls are accepted as they lay. When I started playing and read a sentence like, “...it is your right to control the dice at any time and to roll dice for the players,” and, “You do have the right to overrule the dice at any time...” it was a bit of an aha...

    It isn't that. It is just that, well the archetype itself is highly uninteresting to me. I cannot find any single thing about it that sounds even remotely appealing. Then there's this over exposition to it (it is one of the most popular classes out there), and seeing it used as an excuse for powergaming -if not actual munchkinism-. And of course being told over and over the last few years "Just...

    It's a bit disconcerting that you don't mention paladin under multiclassing, as it's widely considered to be one of the best combinations in 5e, and is significantly more powerful than any single class.

    Magic Inititate (Wizard): mage hand, prestidigitation, sleep. It's the best feat for basically every character that isn't a wizard, and you could make a case for wizards taking it too. Prestidigitation provides distractions, mage hand is, well, mage hand, and sleep is a literal knockout. Can't be beat. For your concept, maybe disguise self or silent image instead of sleep. But still.

    Well there are plenty of examples in the thread already, and like I said it matters what rules the table has. But here’s one from the 5e DMG: “Rolling behind a screen lets you fudge the results if you want to. If two critical hits in a row would kill a character, you could change the second critical hit into a normal hit, or even a miss. Don't distort die rolls too often, though, and don't let...

    Basic Int Check: Diggs arrives at the meeting point with his dog...er drone...Fluffy. To say they can hear him coming is an understatement. When he arrives, he's wearing a long coat, sporting a beard that would put the ugly elf to shame, and his left legs squeaks so bad even the troll should be cringing. He stops in front of them all, looks them over, grunting at the elves and human, and...

    Yes...In a fantasy setting, we can come up with all manner of rp justifications for the DM having the monsters doing just about anything...we get it. But could != should. Having the monster act on knowledge he shouldn't have just because he can and then retroactively coming up with an RP reason for it is, imo, not going to be much fun for anyone. It just leaves players feeling like the DM...

    Just because something can be abused in specific builds does not, in my opinion, disqualify a mechanic or make it without merit. If the only problem is with Sharp Shooter (which I have already homebrewed to reduce its impact), then I am not worried about any abuse potential. Especially since feats (while often assumed to be core) are optional aspects of the game. 1) That doesn't simplify...

    And now it is time for the Adventures of Fluffy and Diggs! I have no idea if this character is even viable. Seems cool to me, or at least, what he could be given enough time and money. Diggs was drafted into the military of some corporation or another, he can't really remember which, when he was a kid. Or maybe it was after he became a man. Or maybe...well, whatever. At some point, he was...

    The character himself is 5'9", and weighs 255lbs. He is a short, stocky fellow, who is a mix of fat and muscle. He has a lot of strength packed into his size, think of a bulldozer. He is an assassin that depends on his alternate identities to get close to targets and assassinate them. I combo grapple with attacking, if only an assassin could get an extra attack. The Expertise combined...

    It is maddening to watch how far you guys will go to twist yourself into knots trying so very hard to "prove" that my preferences are purely arbitrary. What are you afraid of? The metagame police are not going to show up at your house and shut down your game if I'm allowed to play my game my way at my house.
