    No problem... It's all in 1950's wheat pennies, though. Shipping will probably cost you about 1/2 of that. You don't mind, do you?

    Envy me too then, as my group has not figured out a way for any wandering monster, to, at a bare minimum, screw up your rest. Until you have a Leomund's Hut. That changes things dramatically. Level 5 is a game-changer in so many ways.

    Frankly anything is a good fit. They have a fighter, a barbarian, a druid (and a honey badger) and a bard. So they're no niche that can't be filled. Do what you want. Remember this character will return in chapter 4 at 9th level so pick something you want to see at 1st and 9th level. :)

    Explain what is making you uncomfortable and why. Ask the group if it has any suggestions. Add your own. Talk through to a solution. Likely, most of the players won't care one way or another. A couple of players may have a stake, but a compromise is almost certainly easy to reach at this stage.

    I just started Pompeii by Robert Harris. It's a novel that starts a few days before the infamous eruption hits. I'm only a few chapters in, but the main character is a stoic, no-nonsense aquarius (not his astorological sign but his job - he tends the aqueducts); I like him already. It's a shame events aren't in his favor to make it out alive.... But I was in a mood for something different...

    You can decide to take a rest pretty much any time any place. Nuisances such as wandering monsters, environmental hazards are easily circumvented. The only really functional hard limit on resting is... time limitations. The "the Dragon eats the Princess in three days - please hurry!" plot. Problem here is, anytime you don't want to add such a time restriction... you're SOL.

    But that isn't true. You can create a scenario and/or setting during play. Also plenty of games come with setting material pre-made, or come with random methods for determining scenario material during play. Yes you need a place for the game to be occurring in. It doesn't have to happen before play. But yes, you do need to have some kind of setting or scenario for the thing to hang on. Again,...

    As of May 2018 it is estimated that there are over 15 million active players in North America alone. Gen Con's attendance is estimated at over 60,000. Many of whom don't play RPGs while there.

    It's not hair splitting. That's my point that scenario creation is part of the game. It's only part of the game for RPG's. RPG's are the only games where it's required that you must create a game before you can play Yes, but, the games dictate to you what that board, pieces and whatnot IS.

    I think people often forget to compare things to the actual options. Warlock's Blade Pact is the most common example of this. The other pacts are not super powerful. The Warlock has 2 subclasses, and the pacts are the much weaker ones. While Blade isn't quite as powerful as Chain or Tome it's still fine. It gives the Warlock a good melee option when enemies close in. Let's them be versatile....

    One of the most powerful spells I have ever used in 5E is a 6th level slot Major Image. Permanent Illusions. All it does is change the appearance, and it is less powerful than your imaginary spell. I don't think anyone would argue that your spell is a first level spell, and most optimizers would try to stretch the utility of such a versatile spell.

    Don't do this out of the blue and don't do this using the AoO mechanics. Characters (and that means NPCs too) have limited ways of directly affecting incoming ranged attacks. As others have pointed out, having some monk abilities can do part of the job. You should use that as a hint that characters in the game aren't meant to be able to do this willy-nilly just because you want to make things...

    Narkle gets a serious face to his normally mischievous self, and sets in with the group, and oddly he doesnt say much at all. Narkle's position is fine, and he will assume Exploration Tactic of Detecting Magic unless we decide to be sneakier...

    And now I want to hear some examples of what this spell could do in the hands of the right player which would make it so much more valuable.

    Twopaz character review: - AC should be 14 (if your wearing your armor) - HP should be 31/31 (lvl-1:10, +7, +7, +7) - Under abilities you should list Tinker: music box - just to keep track which device you have created at the moment or by listing none, to remind us you don't have one at the moment - Also don't see Expertise listed under abilities, I think you listed thieves' tools on the pdf....

    The DM's job is not to make it fun. That's everyone's job. If 1 spell fundamentally changes the game then it is reasonable to say that the spell is overpowered. Some spells are designed that way to give D&D a certain flavour. Fly, teleport, plane shift, etc. Some aren't. Some tables don't want a level 2 spell to give each party member 35hp. Just because WotC published it in a book doesn't...

    Re-reading your class more carefully now, I think this is actually fairly balanced, and possibly even too weak. But with a big caveat: There's no spellcasting table presented, so it's unclear how many slots at each level they are getting. However the spell effects are reasonably balanced for their level. But it's weird that they are spells, since they all work the same way. So if you want this...

    That's fine. And probably better optimization.

    Corwin says, "I want to be up front if anything comes at us. I have torches to light our way, but if you are willing to hold it, by all means. That would free my hands up to stay ready for anything attacking." Corwin lights a torch and hand it to Urik. I like where Corwin is, and will be using the exploration tactic of defending.

    You're the judge. Ideally the PCs should succeed and your job is to make it fun. You control everything behind the screen. Hit points, mobs, damage... If the players like to be refreshed after every encounter, make each encounter that much more interesting. Its not a video game.

    Kalorn looked at the elf. Sooty had gotten it wrong. Ah. I misunderstood. If he's in, I'm in. I'll be back soon. The sellsword limped out of the room. If that fighter was willing to trust the wizard... why not. He wondered if the turnip comment was meant as an insult. Probably not. Still.

    I always ask myself "Compared to what". This spell does sound powerful, like sprint guardians which I see gets a lot of words over. I generally say that if they are must have spells, then they are overpowered, but some may be like that since they are core to the class- like warlocks and eldritch blast. I try and jusge the spells by how often they are used and how much I need to modify the...

    Man EnWorld has been super busy this week. And just this thread here has almost a full page of posts from yesterday. LOL caught up as of now Zander gave Sesto a smile and nod in greeting, but before he could ask what the priest had been up to the past couple months. Imani started to speak, and then the talk turned more into a negotiation which the ex-soldier. In the service you were lucky to...

    Sounds good. I am thinking that they are considered by most other civilized folk are weirdos who go around talking about some universal divine will while wearing heavy robes and carrying laser swords. I kind of want their origins to be tied to the Venetian, and that no matter your species, you probably spent some time on one of their controlled worlds training. I guess I kind of want to treat...

    The more time I spend with PF2, the more I get the D&D4E vibe from it, which is discouraging. The reason is the clear division between combat mode, exploration mode, and downtime mode. The division is so fundamental that it influences ability design, and they are frequently designed with just one mode in mind. In my mind, this firmly takes the ruleset out of the realm of "tools I can use to...

    Wonderful! I’ll write something up. Currenly wanting to try a Star Knight. Since I don’t get to play WOIN often (read: never), I might not get another chance. But I’ll take a look and make a final decision.

    A couple suggestions: First, I would never just do this as a blanket ability for giants. It takes too much away from the character's signature abilities, and it just feels like a "gotcha". Second, probably the easiest way to do this is to model it off of the Deflect Arrows ability for Monks. I would require some sort of investment on the giant's part to get access to the ability, such...

    Does anyone remember what monster book had the double bear in it? I'm pretty sure it was one of the AD&D 2e Monster Compendiums, but it might be 1e.
