    Because when it snows my drive tends to drift.... Ritual: Remove Snow & Ice (from driveway/walk ways). Every 10' worth of area requires x additional casting time. So great for my drive/walk, not practical for the entire road.

    I fixed the spelling errors (thanks again!) and moved some stuff around and deleted a few things (notably the useless "overheat" ability), which let me add some more information. The biggest change is that I reduced the dragon's hit points so that it's a proper CR 1 whether the PCs interact with the Weak Points system or not. It still seems dangerous for a 1st-level party, but not insane.

    Well, he has me on ignore, so he never saw my post on the first page reiterating your OP with examples. Seriously, AS is so good for sneaky types, itís almost worth rogues taking fighter levels just to get it. Cunning action is limited to only a few things. AS allows another turn, basically.

    I think having a sorcerer that can cast cleric spells in 5e is vastly overrated. Sorcerers already can't take enough goody's to feel like a wizard and now you want them to mix cleric spells into the mix. Like adding a single healing spell and maybe bless is a nice addition but given how few spells known an early game sorcerer gets I can't think of many that beat out the normal staples. That...

    Thanks for sharing :) And I too like your style. Unique and colorful, a nice change from all the dark and brooding maps :) Myself, and many others I know, prefer maps without grids on them for VTT use (both Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds). And then to help align the program grids to the maps, putting an off-color 5ft square in one of the left corners helps us align them.

    I crushed with it my Bravura Warlord in 4e. Off-turn attacks, battlefront shift, free basic melee (or substitutes if your group plans correctly.) I wish I could remember more. With this one your attacks are regular fighter attacks without the benefit of styles, so your damage is less than other Martial classes. Others will do more since they benefit from your features.

    I agree with that underlying assumption. There are rolled arrays so bad that they just won't be played. One way or another they won't be. I'm fine with that. However, almost no matter how many times you reroll in order it's still an order of magnitude faster than standard array. The speed factor comes from actually considering how all the various options you could do stack up against one...

    I agree somewhat with the idea that you learn more from failure. To use running a game of D&D as an example, usually if you have a bad session you have some idea of what went wrong, what didn't work and what needs improving. When everything goes right though, it's hard to tell why or how to improve. That said, I don't think you need to factor this into XP, as it's already taken into account...

    San-Bolo agree. Take the faster path. During the trip, Bolo will still hunt, but San-Bolo will not search for minerals, ores, or plants. They will focus their efforts on reaching Southroad Fair quickly.

    I'd probably allow both.

    But you're changing the premise, which is that you just roll in order once and accept what you get. There seems to be this underlying assumption in the thread that you could never play a character with 'bad' stats, so you have to do something to prevent that.

    Eh... maybe? If you have a lot of decision points, such that optimization becomes a fun exercise, then that's a strong incentive for some people to go back and play that mini-game. You can still have complexity without turning character creation into a fun puzzle, but I can't think of any way to do that without invoking random factors (like Palladium, or Maid). It's probably not common enough...

    Well, he's a right daisy, isn't he, Orin thinks to himself as the knight storms into the tavern with his arrogance and insults. The rogue raises an eyebrow at the declaration about the orcs. There could be a valuable opportunity here, and he intended to take it, despite Sir Pelleton's piggish attempts at dissuasion. "Look, Sir Knight," the warbred began, "I'm jus' a sellsword, which means I...

    This post presents the overview for a campaign based around the notion that the PCs failed to stop the demon plot in the Godsharp Saga, and now Homeworld has been thrown into chaos. https://d20pirates.blogspot.com/2019/01/riot-and-ruin.html -Nate

    In the old days character creation took hundreds of hours. Less than an hour to get started, and then countless game sessions before it turned into something you truly valued.

    The thread about which one cantrip I would want IRL made me realize that I would just want a completely different spell list. Here are the first few that come to mind: "Locate Keys" "Comprehend Spouse"

    I know that there are players who deliberately let their characters die in order to bring in their latest and coolest. Never understood that. I mean, really? Pull that trick at my table, and you get a pregen of my making, and since I'm not happy...And that pregen will be strangely robust!:) Wouldn't the character system have to be really basic to avoid the silliness you mention? And is it so...

    One example I was thinking of is if a Fighter failed a Dex save while climbing or crossing a dangerous rock-bridge, etc, and started falling. They could use their Action Surge to try to grab onto the ledge again (basically re-roll the Save).

    Thanks. I remember seeing it briefly when I got the DMG a couple months ago in preparation for learning/starting 5E. I was looking in the index for "sorcery points" not spell points, which is why I didn't find it before. Oddly enough, since beginning this thread, I was creating a very similar system to give to Wizards to allow them even greater versatility LOL! I'll have to read through it...

    So basically it's a Paladin that functions in an anti-magic field. Because that :):):):) happens to my Paladin all the freaking time.
