    How far away was it? They said it was a long way, on the edge of Union space and out of comms range. But in terms of travel time it seemed like it took an hour or so to get there? If they move that fast, nowhere is remote, really.

    You could try making the actual ship battle a narrative background element while the PCs themselves do something important in the battle. Maybe they have to board the enemy ship and get something while the cannonballs rain down and enemy sailors battle them in the lower decks.

    I will generally just miss a show entirely, rather than commit piracy. Yeah. It then starts getting to having to pay close attention to each service and ask whether you're really getting enough content from them to justify the expense. CBS All Access is a fine example. I haven't watched any of Discovery, because it is not worth it to me to pay for a single show that gets mixed reviews.

    If they wanted to, they could throw money at it and make it go away. I'm going to guess they don't want to.

    The acid blood isn't meant to be a strong combat ability. If an ogre was dealing significant amounts of damage to foes every time it was hit, it would be very overpowered. It'll hurt maybe a peasant, but not a hero. Mooks are vulnerable to such things as they die with one hit.

    There's an interesting bit of human psychology. If you have a resource, and are unlikely to get more of it, you hoard that resource. You never use it, because if you do, then you won't have it at that critical time. But then since you aren't in the habit of using it... you forget about it, and don't use it when you really should. So, you wind up with a chicken and egg thing - if the GM...

    We did this for our PF1 game and it went pretty well, but I would recommend to keep it low-level (cap the campaign to max 10th level or so) so that feat and spell interactions donít get complex enough to cause major headaches. In fact, numbers fatigue caused my entire PF1 group to switch to D&D5. I suspect that lack of mechanical customization compared to PF will cause us to switch back...

  • 02:19 AM - ClaytonCross mentioned Morrus in post The Pitfalls of D&D Beyond Data
    This phenomenon of people quoting D&D Beyond stats to prove points happens the most right after they post some of their data. Those posts and threads are months old at this point and so I'm not going to dig them up. However, there's been comments about their data in more recent threads, but it's not important enough to go digging through pages and pages of comments looking for the proverbial needle in the haystick that I know is there (because I've recently read it) just to prove you wrong. Instead I'll give you one current example. The example: @Morrus did. It's still on the front page of this forum and shows in the thread title: "90% of D&D Games Stop By Level 10; Wizards More Popular At Higher Levels" People also use invalid math to prove points. Example: "Average DPR with % hit", we have talked about it before that this is not an acute representation of actual game play damage being that average DPR is only correct about 3% of the time for any specific battle, does not account for 0 sum damage on miss, or loss of damage from over kill... however, I don't have a better metric for measuring damage. So I use it too sometimes to prove a point as do you. The same is true for D&D Beyond data. As @Morrus pointed out... We donít need data at all. Sometimes they share stuff as a conversation point. And itís fun to talk about. But we donít need it. Itís just an excuse for us all to flap our lips You are correct that 1. It will be used to argue and 2. it is not accurate... However, when it agrees with an argument anyone is likel...
  • 01:30 AM - ClaytonCross mentioned Morrus in post The Pitfalls of D&D Beyond Data
    LOL, I love the n00b insult at the end. It's very entertaining! :) Yes which proves his point in that if post are a measure of validity Morrus's 39,521 post to your 3,940 posts would make you a n00b and irrelevant if we are calling that a valid maker of knowledge base. Which we are not. So while your one of the more interesting posters to read you do have a tendency to get a bit dismissive of posters based on off point arguments like posts. I still came to your thread because you make interesting discussion and I heard you. I have even posted a on the D&D Beyond feature requests asking for player inactive characters tags and a statement on slides listing the day delimiter so as we read slides we have a beater representation of what the slide is depicting. That said, questioning the validity of one someone says based on how much they said instead of the content of their argument makes you look bad, instead of making them look unqualified. If your going to say the statement was in jest... their is no indication in the text of the post that implies that and the person your posting to does not know you well enough to infer that ...

  • 06:33 PM - FrogReaver mentioned Morrus in post The Pitfalls of D&D Beyond Data
    ... They already have a method to account for that, which gives an even better data set than the question you proposed: When the Data says "Active Characters" it means they have controlled for characters who haven't been updated in the past X days. It doesn't matter if the character is meant to be an NPC or PC, it just maters if someone is actually going back to update it, all other characters are considered to be abandoned or a test character. Morrus has claimed multiple times that the charts represent all characters created and even includes the ones not necessarily played. I'd lean toward him being correct on this but maybe not?

    cbwjm, if you can read this, notifications donít always link you to only one page away from the intended post. Sometimes itís multiple pages off. Youíll see, over time, unless you continue sidestepping the issue, in which case, yeah, itís kind of nonsense to claim it doesnít bother you. Of course they donít bother you, they donít even affect you. And again, Iím not actually blocking you to ďteach you a lesson.Ē Iím demonstrating that the bugs with the block system allow me to do such things, which is a clear exploit and not something any well-thought-out block feature should enable. EDIT: And also, if you can read this, thatís just further proof that the system is completely borked and needs fixing. Can we Morrus about this? Because this is a serious problem.

  • 04:40 AM - Hussar mentioned Morrus in post Do you believe we are alone in the universe?
    ...ery real science. Postulating completely unverifiable elements to make your equations work is not good science. Now, at the moment, it's the best we've got, so, there's that. In any case, I was trying to be a bit tongue in cheek and poking a bit of fun at astronomers. But, I would point out, "isn't really science" is not what I said. What I said was that astronomy gets a bit more latitude than other sciences when it comes time to actually prove their hypotheses. Being able to make up stuff just so your equations work doesn't work in other sciences. And, unfortunately, people who get into sciences can be just as dogmatic as anyone else. I mean, you're apparently absolutely sure that your model of the universe is correct despite the fact that it hasn't actually been proven and remains largely theoretical. I mean, heck, NASA says you're wrong: https://spaceplace.nasa.gov/review/dr-marc-space/dark-sky.html I'm a little more comfortable believing NASA than you, Morrus.

  • 11:54 PM - Hussar mentioned Morrus in post Do you believe we are alone in the universe?
    I don't know if this is a sad though but if its 1 light year or 100 right now functionally its the same thing in terms of interstellar travel. Its to far for us. Morrus theres a lot of things that scientists are still fuzzy on. For example is space infinite. Another one is the Big Bang Theory. OK there is a big ball of mass, energy or whatever and it explodes 13 billion years ago. Who or what created it? How did it get their to explode in the 1st place? Would that who or what in effect be God? Note I am not religious was just wondering. I thought the "is space infinite" question was largely resolved. If space was truly infinite, then the night sky would be solid white with stars. In an infinite universe, you would have infinite stars, therefore, from our point of view, there would be almost no space between the stars in the night sky. At least, that's the way it was explained to me. But, Morrus, I'm certainly no anti-scientist campaigner. Just pointing out that in one branch of science, the rules get... err... relaxed somewhat.

    I find podcast versions to be a great way to listen to AP shows. You can listen to them while doing other things (walking, driving, etc.) rather than having to carve out 4 hours of time. Yep - that's the way I do it too. Just listen to it in the background while I work and if I miss something hilarious or surprising I just rewind a bit. You don't have to follow every moment. Of course that's not for everyone, but it's a fun escape and makes a nice change from listening to music.

  • 09:50 PM - Ilbranteloth quoted Morrus in post Decapitation and lethality in your game
    When a player kills a foe, I often ask ďhow do you kill it?Ē and let them describe the killing blow however they like. Decapitation doesnít come up as often as youíd think! Thats similar to what we do. On a critical hit, they choose the hit location which has an impact on the potential outcomes. On a critical miss, they decide what the impact is, which should be at least as bad as provoking an opportunity attack, although it doesnít have to result in damage. When they suffer an injury, or a possible killing blow, they decide what happens as well. We have guidelines and rules to help, so if they want to just go with the dice, they can.
  • 05:54 PM - D351 quoted Morrus in post No Politics
    I think itís quite simple. Opposition of harassment and abuse in our little community is not politics, and I oppose any attempts to paint them as such. I was going for a more broadly applicable philosophy, but I'll take it. It certainly meets the needs of addressing this most recent issue in most details. Is it fair to extrapolate that to an understanding that it is not "politics" to discuss how the community should best create and maintain an environment safe from harassment and abuse? Part of the reason I brought this question up is that it seems that it would be difficult to have that kind of conversation without directly shutting down those who attempt to derail the subject into politics (or into calling the subject politics) before the thread has been derailed. In the recent example, the fact that the thread was closed left me with the incorrect impression that the subject itself had been the problem (in that it lent itself to attracting that kind of attention). I'm glad to see that ...

  • 03:26 PM - Deset Gled quoted Morrus in post The Orville Season Two - Thoughts?
    It was good, but wasn't the last episode a romance plot? And this one was essentially two simultaneous romance plots (with a murder mystery added in). I'm hoping for some action next week! I think the "upgrade the ship" side plot and accompanying test fight was their attempt to shoehorn some action into what was otherwise a relationship episode. I also think it worked. I've been surprisingly satisfied with these romance plots. I generally disliked Riker romance on TNG, but these have been working for me. Hopefully they won't get stale.

    There's a thread on this just 6 threads below this one. http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?653829-Non-existent-Reputation-comment That one was so recent because I commented on it 5 days before when this started. But that was confirming I had the same error as others, and giving the time/date in case it was useful for tracking down why the disabled reputation comment system was activating. I did mention removal, but it was an old thread. This thread is focused on asking if there was any way to reset it for me and the others suffering from it, even if it's an admin running a SQL statement to clear them out of the database to give temporary relief. After 5 days I fidn it to be a real distraction, triggering years of "I've got a response!" habit.

    ďIf you decide that trying to steal Halasterís spellbook is madness, and just go have a drink at the Elfstone Tavern turn to page 44.Ē But seriously, these both sound pretty awesome. Something about Escape from Castle Ravenloft really reminds me of the old Choose Your Own Adventure books from the 80s. Y ou have been tasked with stealing the spell book of Halaster Blackcloak, the mad mage who controls the halls of Undermountain.
  • 04:53 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted Morrus in post Decapitation and lethality in your game
    Same and same. Unless decapitation and maiming is baked into the system, I don't feel a need to add it in. If it comes up in my D&D game, it's telegraphed in advance as a specific consequence. And generally, if someone loses a limb, that's a story opportunity to get a cool prosthetic of some sort, rather than a punishment. When a player kills a foe, I often ask ďhow do you kill it?Ē and let them describe the killing blow however they like. Decapitation doesnít come up as often as youíd think!

    *Please* just give it a rest.

  • 12:44 AM - TwoSix quoted Morrus in post Who's Multiclassing With Who? More D&D Beyond Stats!
    Fighter/Rogue is the most popular combo, followed by Barbarian/Fighter. Warlock/Bard is the least popular. That's not quite accurate...Warlock/Bard is the least common option on that chart, but that chart is only showing the 10 most popular combinations. Since there are 66 possible combinations of 2 PHB classes, that means Warlock/Bard is 10th out of 66, a fairly popular combination! (Considering Warlock/bard is a pretty optimal multiclass combination, that isn't too surprising.) This one is the fighter. Very popular for multiclassers, with 33% of characters, and nearly 40% at level 20. Warlock, paladin and... fighter? are popular multiclasses. Looks like it should be sorcerer in that chart instead of fighter; the same error exists on both the rogue and the wizard chart.

  • 11:22 PM - FrogReaver quoted Morrus in post Who's Multiclassing With Who? More D&D Beyond Stats!
    ...The fact that you can take more than just two classes means that these won't add up to exactly 100%... Morrus, I know you are probably just the messenger, but this bit of the first post is inaccurate. Even if they restricted their data to "Active Characters with exactly 2 classes" they would still have a class graph showing over 100%. In fact in that situation it would show exactly 200%. So the reason about having more than 2 classes is incorrect, it's because they are showing a population that accounts for each character once but showing a breakdown that has each character accounted for more than once. An interesting observation: Their chart for level 2+ characters adds up very closely to 200% without Druid being shown. With him added in it's likely just a little over 200%. What this tells us is that very few characters in that population of level 2+ characters have more than 2 classes.

    That certainly wasnít my takeaway from what you were saying! Thanks for letting me know. Iíll see if I can figure out whatís wrong. All right! I'm glad I brought it up. In my experience, 50% of conflicts are nothing more than miscommunication. Who's fault was it? Does it matter? Not at all, what matters is that we solve the problem! I'm pretty sure you're operating in good faith here :)
