    Of course. But let's add a few more variables, shall we? Let's say F fiction was established at time 1, and X is being introduced somewhat later at time 2; and the fiction that came between these events is, in sum total, FF. Back at 1, F was established using the known information at the time - information of which X would have been a part had it been introduced at or before 1; and from...

    They are very similar and a lot works with 5e. Many of the alternate rules in the dmg are standard rules from 3.5. Having played both a lot, that’s my feeling.

    No, the problem is that you HAVE to retcon things to allow for the presence at the time of the (permanent-in-the-fiction) new element being introduced out of the blue right now so as to allow for things that would, could, or might have been done differently in previous play had that element been known about at the time. The only way to avoid the evil these retcons represent is to not allow...

    This is my vote (maybe make drow dark purple?) :) One thing I like about Crystal Shard is it has a slightly adult, swords & sorcery tone in places, which was discarded in the sequels. I think the D&D movie should be at least a 12-rated.

    They aren't even playing the same game anymore. They're literally using different rule sets. It's not that kids stay in the part of play that's less-complicated; it's that the kids literally aren't playing the game that contains the complicated rules. I would say that the kids have house-ruled out a lot of the complexity, but the reality is more that the foremost authority has house-ruled a...

    The Bitter Minotaur is a roadside inn along a major road within the relatively safe lands of the Satrapy. The roads here aren’t threatened by monstrous incursions and other foul beasts, but as they run through heavy forests they are still prone to a bit of banditry here and there. Thus the Inn serves as a resting point along the route instead of a defensive shelter. The three-story Inn has a...

    Wild West tabletop games have a long history dating back to the hobby's origins, although the first major one with supernatural elements came out in the 90s. Deadlands soon became a popular franchise, eclipsing older and contemporary Western RPGs in the marketplace. In spite of this popularity the line had its share of hiccups, one of them being rather railroady adventures and an NPC-centric...

    Probably easiest if the LG character is oblivious to the masters selfish tendencies. He could easily deceive the naive LG character (make it your flaw). The master could convince him that the government is actually evil, and his actions are beneficial for the greater good. This also creates an interesting RP situation when the character is confronted by the true of the master's deceit.

    Perhaps the most prominent Western-themed tabletop game, Deadlands is a long running franchise from the mid-90s. Although popular, the system was beginning to show its age and in 2006 the product line was updated to Pinnacle Entertainment's new Savage Worlds systems. For the next 2 years free content was released for the RPG in the form of one to two page mini-adventures, but no full products. In...

It's very hard to have (mechanical) depth without complexity. You need the complexity to get the depth. But the complexity has to be spent carefully, where you get the most bang for your...

    As a self-defined "Spaghetti Western with Meat," the setting of Deadlands is quite squarely west of the Mississippi.

    No. There is some established fiction - call it F. And there is a newly-introduced element - call it X. I am confident for any F, and for any X, there are indefinitely many ways of reconciling them as fictions - call these R. Any valid R will render it evident (if it's not already) why F happened given that X. You seem to be focusing on identifying possibilities that aren't R - call them...

    It's not at all impossible to convert, just don't try to make it an exact fit. Look at the options in DMG to dial the grittiness of the game a little. Practice balancing encounters to your players, 5e does softball things a bit, so dial up the opposition until you get the sweet spot.

    That’s nonsense.

Instead of just specifying an amount of damage when and only when an element is intended to be able to do damage. This is some absurd backbending you’re doing just to defend your...

    The first few D&D movies could have worked- maybe. The main problem was no character development to become attached to. There was a BBEG that you had no reason to hate and a McGruffin to stop him which was all powerful. Forcing a movie to 90 minutes cannot work to become invested. Maybe with something small where the PCs become local heroes and save the village, only to cut to a end credit...

The description of Hypnotic Gaze states that it "magically enthralls" another creature. So unfortunately, Hypnotic Gaze does not bypass Magic Resistance.

I just don't think folks are investing much of their identity into that idea. But I do think when you frame it as an issue of people clinging to tribalism, it does come...

    And there's a valid question to be asked as to whether this trend has been a good or bad thing; and the answer is probably some version of "both" for most of us. Exactly. They might not know a thing about what they're potentially going to face but they know, or have a vague idea at least, what resources are available to them before going out to face it. And even then if they decide to run...

    You will note that nowhere in my post do I say that I think I'm "enlightened." We're all subject to tribalism.

    I was just updating the index post for this thread and stumbled across this. Sorry I missed it Krudler, in future if you want to get someone's attention you put an "@" before their username, like this: @robus :) The good? news is I haven't done any more thinking about this adventure since my last post. I don't know what holes are there, but I will say that the only way to keep your sanity when...

    Alcoholism is what eventually killed Jerry Doyle. That, and maybe a little more than averagely high blood pressure from a career as a right-wing talk show host.

    So would you allow empowered casting to add damage to spells like fairy fire, darkness, gust of wind and guidance? Given your explanation, there is an argument for allowing it.

    Or they just see things differently than you and like different things. Maybe you have moved to a new style that doesn't do this. But that doesn't mean you are enlightened. It just means your tastes changed.

    That depends, I suppose, on whether you're only looking at trying to make the new element fit in with what's established (which, as you say, is often not that hard to do) or whether - and here's my sticking point - you're looking deeper to see if the new element would or could have caused anything already established to have been established differently at the time, had the new element been in...

    This is the part where we don't agree, but I can say that your summary here is an accurate description of my POV. Lots of things feel like this to me, not just TTRPGs. 7 Wonders, Small World, Flash Point. Card games like pinochle and euchre. Video games like Castles and Dwarf Fortress. My 5 year old plays baseball but the MLB rule book is 170 pages.

    Yes. Find any Jeeves the Butler book. Read. Enjoy. You are welcome. It will be totally clear how you can be lawful and serve a chaotic master. If anyone says you are wrong, repeat this advice. Anyone who reads one Wodehouse's books and still says you are wrong is not worth associating with.

    Chrysagon looked down and saw the blood flowing on his chainmail. Then turned his head to check on his companions. As long as they don't enter the cave we can win, he thought before changing his stance. Chrysagon dodges.

    Darkness also does 0 damage. If you believe it never does damage regardless of feature then it still does 0 damage. It just always does 0 damage. The whole f(x) = 0 thing.

    Side question: As to the 'master' - based on what you said, I see 'neutral', but in what sense is he chaotic? As to Lawful - Sure the character can be 'lawful' by dint of consistently following some set of rules. As to Good - My sense is that 'good' as used in D&D generally has an absolutist take on what is good, especially when it comes to 'lawful' 'goodness'. The bolded part of the quote...

    I'd allow it at my table. A person could have natural instincts that lean toward Lawful Good, while their outward behavior and image they want to project is more edgy. This character would probably have a complex where he tries to justify his unlawful actions internally by adhering to some sort of a criminal code or some other type of orderly system, while also doing his best to do the most...
