    "That's fine, but it is a house rule..." is at the same time one of the least effective, and most dismissive, phrases you can put into a discussion of games.

    How many feet extra the player's desired jump is gives you something to adjudicate. 1 extra foot may be easy, +30 feet near impossible. i.e. the standard distance is the automatic success, farther gets harder and harder.

    Sure, but I mention it to show he has a better chance than he might otherwise. It doesn't matter. I could have said 10. The entire point was in one game, there is zero chance of success and in mine there is a chance of success, however slim or great. That's the difference in DMing philosophy we are discussing, not the specifics of the numbers (which I just pulled out of thin air). ...

    I think you are ascribing meaning to the word "describe" in this context. Moreover, you aren't quoting a rule, you are quoting an explanation of how the game works. Further, the following paragraph after "The Player describes what his character is doing," says absolutely nothing about how descriptive a player must be or whether the DM has to consider any factors at all beyond her own judgement....

    This is fine. Bob can even do it if he isn't proficient in Athletics. Hold the phone. DC 25? 1) Might as well just say 'no'. Bob needs to be level 5+ to have a shot at succeeding and even then only on a 20. 2) For just an extra 3 feet? DC 25 is 1 step down from the hardest possible check. The long jump record is over 29ft. Adding on a couple extra feet would be DC 10 in my game....

    Unusually being the key there. If you are just going to say yes to every time they ask to jump farther, it's no longer unusual. Also, that rule does not exist in a vacuum. It exists within the context of Page 6. To declare an action you describe what your PC is doing and then the DM adjudicates it. "I use athletics to jump farther" is not a description of what your PC is doing. It's a...

    Where? Fair enough. Then at my table, they would fail. It’s farther than they could normally jump, so trying anyway does not have a reasonable chance of success, and therefore fails without a roll. Personally, I would prefer to tell the player as much, and give them the opportunity to back out, just as I prefer to tell players DCs before they commit to an action, but to each their own. ...

    This is exactly the one-true-wayism I am talking about. You are making an assertion that is patently untrue -- demonstrably even, given we have quoted the rules and guidelines. The choice to say a character cannot make an Athletics check to extend jump without convoluted explanations distance is a valid one, but it isn't a thing that is required. For example, Fighter Bob is being chased by...

    But the rules also say you can ask for an athletics check to jump an unusually long distance. You may not think that means anything, I rule it as a PC stating "I know that gap is further than I could usually jump, but I'm going to try anyway".

    As Iserith pointed out, simply saying that you want to use athletics to jump farther fails to give the DM anything to adjudicate. There is nothing he can use to set the DC or grant automatic success on. You can rule automatic failure, since with nothing else given, there's nothing to distinguish it from a normal jump, though. Nobody has asserted any one-true-wayism. iserith has...

    As far as shooting breaking hiding it does if the monster has a line of sight to you. The whole point of a rogue getting to use bonus action to hide is to move, attack, move to a place with where they can’t see you, and then use the bonus action to hide.

    Simply failing to accomplish a goal, per se, is not a meaningful consequence, because it leaves you in exactly the situation you would be in had you not made the attempt in the first place. If you can’t distinguish between failing and never having tried, then the consequences for failing were not meaningful. If something has changed for the worse as a result of the attempt, or a limited resource...

    It’s a specific material; it’s not just any old iron. Again, part of the v1.2 clarifications, but a cold iron weapon costs twice a regular one.

    I mean, the rules player’s handbook don’t say you make a DC10 Athletics check, jumping half your maximum jump distance on a failure, and your maximum plus an extra foot for every 5 over the DC on a success. That’s a perfectly reasonable method of resolving a jump is perfectly fine, but to say it’s “how the game works” is just not true. How the game works is that can jump up to a certain distance,...

    Same. I especially like the fact that races can choose to not known their own language because of the cosmopolitan nature of the setting. Both sides of my family have been in America for at least three generations. I don't know Italian, nor Spanish, nor German. I have older relatives that can speak those, but not me.

    I found a spreadsheet a while back that I thought I'd share since it has been updated to cover the release of Armory. A user named "Jimbles the Mediocre" created a google sheets file with a listing of every bit of equipment from all the Paizo releases for Starfinder. This is just a basic listing of things so the books are still needed for full details but it is still usable. Jimbles'...

    Unbelievable. In one game there is set up of pieces on a chess board. In the other game is a completely different kind of set-up that involves cards. They are not equal at all in terms of what is being set-up. If you are going to call those games equal, then D&D with its creation type of set-up is just as equal to those others. At this point, given the responses, I have to conclude that you...

    This suggests another model... the ability as an enchanter ummm level. (which we already generally have feats enhancing enchanting modify) Theoretically we could have a salesmanship feat have a similar effect as the enchanting ones AND we could assume in a medieval world that everyone barters normally and that with magic items the cost rules apply because you have better contacts to sell to...

    In theory, yes, they could all be automated. However, it would require a TON of work. Almost anything *can* be done with code, but then the cost of that effort has to be taken in to account. Coding all of the magic items has been deemed beyond the scope of this project.

    It's right there where I bolded. In order to be unusual, it must be only done in some circumstances or it could not be considered to be unusual. If it can be done all the time, then it's usual.

    There is. It's at the beginning on page 6. The players have to describe what they want the PCs to do. Then the DM narrates the result. Grackon wants to make an athletics check to jump farther is not a description of what the PC is doing to jump farther. There's nothing there other than a description of a normal jump. Now, letting you know that the Grackon is rolling a log to the edge of...

    If you play 5e that way then, yes, the skill rules will seem bad. That isn't a problem with 5e. It's just a matter of taste. It's important to understand that as otherwise the skill rules won't make sense. It's not a value judgement, play however you want. It's just that certain styles of play aren't well supported by the game. "The DM calls for an ability check when a character or monster...

    That is how it works. If it's 20 feet to jump the chasm, it doesn't matter if you went 19 feet, because you FAILED to jump 20. Because of that failure, you now have the penalty of trying make the dex check to see if you can grab the ledge and not fall potentially to your death.

    Specific beats general, but that only ever comes into play when there's a conflict. You can't go through walls AND passwall allows you to go through walls is an example of specific beating general. The situation under discussion has no such conflict. "You can try to jump an unusually long distance" does not conflict with how to go about setting up actions and ruling on them, so the only...

    Zyara spends her second ki point to flurry and makes trip attacks against all three drow in front of her. Her hands and foot are a blur of motion as she finishes off any of them that survive the fall. When done, if the space is open, she step to y16 to head toward the cluster of drow to the south. Trip against x14, x15, x16, with stomp and trip AoOs: 1D20+26 = +26 = 34 Trip y14: 33 dmg if both...
