    In 13th Age, by default the party can "flee" at any point in a fight, and all the characters survive (unless they're already dead). The penalty is a "campaign loss," as in, something goes badly in the game world as a result. The rule doesn't prevent all PC deaths, but it's a big help. Back in 2008, I wrote up that rule and posted it on Gleemax, the short-lived digital platform that Wizards of the...

    Oooh! "The fans have been heard. Anything is possible in the world of Trek. I would love to bring back that crew more than anything. It was a huge risk for us. One of the most gratifying things is to see how deeply the fans have embraced Pike, Spock, Number One, and the Enterprise. The idea of getting to tell more stories with them would be a delight for all of us."

    Yeah, but Klyden's not a crew member, so we don't expect to see him live up to the Trek standard. He also serves as a window into Moclan culture, especially when Bortus is willing to question it. I had kind of a Riker vibe going on too since there were similarities at first, but then they went in a very different direction with it.

That said, isn't it a private building owned by the Catholic Church? They don't need donations or French taxpayer money to rebuild it. They have billions.

    Save or Die effects aren't great for monsters because there's too much riding on a single roll. They're not great for player-character powers because they invalidate the way most characters bring down enemies: hit point attrition. In 13th Age, we picked up a rule from Dave Hargrave's Arduin Adventure game. Save-or-die effects have a hit point cap. The death lord PC in our game uses the "Sever...

    Depends on what you mean by, "literary." There's some who will use it to mean, "of a quality and/or style similar to critically acclaimed literature." Much like we talk about a game having "cinematic action" if we feel it evokes the style and feeling and imagery of Hollywood action movies. From context, I expect that's in the ballpark of what you mean. With that qualifying presumption,...

    How many rounds do your fights last? I'm playing a cleric - I get maybe one roll a round, and not even that if I am casting spells that have a save (like ye standard Sacred Flame), rather than a spell attack roll. Ain't nothing wrong with that.

    I'm big on accessories and things to make my game better. I'm currently collecting all of Paizo's flip-mats (they are SO useful!) and I bought Art & Arcana. If I spend money on Kickstarter, it's usually something really cool that's caught my eye. I don't buy much digital -- I'm very fond of physical stuff.

    It's worse than you think, mate. It's not just people talking about Star Wars. If you look around there's people talking about elves and wizards and dragons all over the place.

    No, they have a die they *think* rolls high. Remember, you are talking about a species that thinks that their favorite sports team will perform badly if we wear the wrong socks on game day. It is much more likely to be perception rather than reality - unless they actually rolled a bunch of times, recorded the rolls, and did a statistical analysis, their perception is subject to all the usual...

    Setting aside the idea of purposely loaded dice.... Statistically, most of us just don't need to worry about the minor bias that arises from the usual manufacturing process for dice. This imbalance is notable when you roll the die a statistically relevant number of times. You can do a Chi-squared analysis on a hundred rolls, for example. For lesser numbers of rolls, you can't tell the bias...

    Exactly. We got there in the end. Thank you. So now we've finally established that it *isn't* the case that lifting a rock is a higher level ability ability than aiming that torpedo, we can lay the Rey 'Mary Sue' nonsense to rest, since we've clearly and definitively now established that Luke and Anakin were just the same.

  • 08:03 PM - ParanoydStyle mentioned Morrus in post Missing Community Supporter and Silver Subscriber under name.
    Morrus I also subscribed as a Silver Supporter on March 25th according to PayPal. I am worried I am going insane because I can't seem to find the donate/subscription/support button/page/whatever anymore. I am positive I donated so it feels vaguely like the website is gaslighting me. I know that 19.99 is the amount I paid through PayPal but I can't find the page that explains how long of a subscription that purchases. (If ANYONE reading this can link me to the page, I'd be very appreciative. Right now I'm not sure if the donate/support button/link has been taken down, if I'm losing my mind, or if I just SUUUUUUPER critically failed my perception check.) Anyway, I, also would really, really appreciate getting my subscriber benefits. (I think) I forbore saying anything until now because I wanted to make sure my payment had PLENTY of time to process and because I didn't want to be a pain in the ass. But as it's been almost a month I need to speak up and I really do want my custom user titl...

    ...arget). So it's rules legal as long as the movement, Ready action, and trigger are all faithfully applied and resolved. Whether or not you find the outcome satisfying even though it's rules legal is another matter though. This. The dm can move them, one at time, and then have them wait to ready an action to attack. but Telvin: - If they had multiple attacks, they'd lose their extra attacks because readying takes your action and then it takes your 'reaction' to make the attack. You can't ready multiple attacks. Really, in this scenario(because of pack tactics), only the first bloodhawk (per PC) needs to ready until any of their other allies moved in. The others can just move in and attack as long as one of their allies was already adjacent. So, if they DM felt bloodhawks were smart enough to move and ready and only attacked once, then it's legal. With INT 3, I might have made the first bloodhawk attack with a normal attack...maybe. 3 is still pretty smart. Morrus Hmmmm. What *is* the rule for simultaneous initiative? Having them all move then all attack creates a massive tactical advantage over having them each move then attack. For me, they all go at once but still 'one at a time.' It probably evens out because now the PCs can all go simultaneously and use the same tactics. Although, it makes initiative a bit more important, I think. Having the PCs all go first and take out several of the bloodhawks before they acted might have changed the outcome. Telvin Who won initiative?

  • 04:43 PM - CleverNickName mentioned Morrus in post Critical Role Kickstarter Predition Game: Guess the Funding Outcome (GTFO)
    Thanks to the #CritterPush during last night's broadcast, the Kickstarter blew through their final stretch goal (of $8.8M) and then another $111K before it slowed back down. mortwatcher barely got to spend any time at all in the limelight, before Henry took the lead. Last night's event really blew up my spreadsheet too, which depends on a smooth U-shaped graph and wasn't designed to handle spikes like this. I'm now predicting Morrus to win...but let's be honest, nobody knows anymore. Critters are crazy. (For those not in the know, the #CritterPush event was coordinated in the Kickstarter comment section by a handful of pledges who thought it would be hilarious if they broke their final stretch goal live during their regular broadcast. So they coordinated tens of thousands of donors over social media, asking everyone to increase their pledges by just $5 to accomplish that task. It worked better than they had hoped, because like I said: Critters are crazy.)

    CleverNickName are very awesome for doing this. I was trying to do big math and guessed that they would bring in half the previous day for a number of days before the people dried up and then half again for the rest of the days, but could not get that far. I was thinking around 12 million, but don't want to be cheap and jump on Morrus and bet $1 higher. I'm going to go big and say $23,500,000

    No evidence here that this book will not be equally Greyhawk focused as the original modules (more, quite possibly). Mike Mearls was just talking about Greyhawk and how he wants to get a Greyhawk product into the world on Dragon Talk a couple weeks ago. Relax. Pattern of behavior of taking items out of greyhawk to FR ToEE and ToH moved out of greyhawk into realms. So its very possible it will happen again. Morrus. Thanks for starting to understand. Greyhawk is important to more then a few. And love to see it fly again.

    I'm sure the sheer amount of photography of that building over the last century means no detail will be left undocumented. Copying it will be easy, as long as they can spend the money. That said, isn't it a private building owned by the Catholic Church? They don't need donations or French taxpayer money to rebuild it. They have billions. One of the issues is the fact that the trees that gave the wood for the roof,made up a whole forest and well that tree AFAIK no longer exist. https://www.architecturaldigest.com/story/notre-dame-cathedral-restoration but from a quick look it looks liek the French government owns it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notre-Dame_de_Paris#Ownership https://news.ubisoft.com/en-us/article/348227/Supporting-Notre-Dame-de-Paris http://assassinscreed.com/unity-notredame/ I've got to say this is very cool of them.

  • 03:47 AM - robus quoted Morrus in post The Washington Post Weighs In On D&D!
    Historically, editions have changed with design teams. Whoever makes 6E, it will be the designers coming up after Mearls and Crawford, etc. I dunno, that seems like a hell of a dice to roll? Better to ask the current designers to make the adjustments needed to improve the current rule set? A 5.1e rather than a 6e. Three big improvements I can recommend off the bat: 1) make the starter set more new DM friendly, much more hand holding is needed. 2) reorg the PHB so that how to play the game comes first, not chargen. 3) reorg the DMG so that running the game is first, not bloody world building! :D Oh and some rules tweaks too...

For example, the US Code of Federal Regulations just says "the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives", which the Alliance clearly fits. Australia has also charged people with terrorism for attacking a military base. I think discussing this further may get a little political, so I'll just point out that Wikipedia also says, "There is no universal agreement on the definition of terrorism."

    While that is a deliberate choice, I think Iíll just make the decision for people and put the skill in there, as so many people keep asking. I prefer leaving it open ended, but it seems Iím alone in that! I think suggesting 'evocation plus [one or two relevant non-magical skills specified by Morrus]' is a good compromise. It provides flexibility for groups or character concepts that don't want to use the full spell build system and would prefer to stick to career exploits, while providing good guidance on acceptable skills for GMs and players who like their systems crunchy and specific. But in that case, be sure to let the magical careers take the non-magical skill needed to use their exploit. :)

    Thatís a pretty low bar for predictions. Everybody shares your prediction. Nobody thinks 6E is anywhere close. I don't think everyone does. I browse to see what thoughts are on Hasbro brands and other things and I find a surprising number of predictions about a 6th edition being created (everything for gambles on when it will be released to how it will look and other things). Maybe it's just me finding a minority of people who are looking at it that way that have overexposed me to the idea that there are people thinking extensively about it.

    Thatís a pretty low bar for predictions. Everybody shares your prediction. Nobody thinks 6E is anywhere close. I dunno man. D&D Editions tend to come at you like the English in Holy Grail. Far. Far. Far. IT'S RIGHT THERE!

    Now THAT was one hell of a space battle. By far the best looking space battle in any iteration of Star Trek. I was on the edge of my seat the whole episode. Except basically everything in DS9 and of course there were plot holes galore.

    Was WotC responsible for taking away penalties to Strength for female characters? Thatís not my recollection. No, those were an aberration of AD&D 1E. As I recall, neither 2E nor Basic had them.

    Was WotC responsible for taking away penalties to Strength for female characters? Thatís not my recollection. No, I believe those were introduced in 1e AD&D, but they never made it past that edition.

    There's books on this. I think what he made was great. But he's like Tarantino - he cobbles together homages to other things. Sure, but maybe this just points to what "originality" is and isn't. I see novelty and originality as different. Novelty is just being different for the sake of being different and is often not really original. Originality has more to do with creativity and authenticity. It might not even be novel (new/different), but could still be quite original.
  • 12:20 AM - Zardnaar quoted Morrus in post Critical Role Kickstarter Predition Game: Guess the Funding Outcome (GTFO)
    Doesn't sound like you. ;) Be nice, I can often cite my numbers if I have to, otherwise I'll say its an opinion. Like if its about sales of the D&Ds Art and Arcana for example has published a lot of the numbers I was using that. I can cite Paizos sales numbers for 2012 for example it just get repetitive if people play the cite game on every post you make, I don't have a document so where with links to everything so I have to go and google stuff and track it down.
  • 12:16 AM - Mercurius quoted Morrus in post Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker Trailer
    Did Lucas? If youíre looking for originality, Star Wars is not your huckleberry. Iíd try indie cinema! :) Disagree on this. By "originality" I don't mean mere clever novelty. The original series was plenty original in terms of how it brought imaginative worlds to the screen. When Star Wars came out there was nothing quite like it. Sure, it was based on Joseph Campbell's ideas, but even that was something fresh and new.

    Have you clicked through to the article? Because the picture has a big old caption and stuff. Your answer is literally just a click away. I did click through to the article, and read it, and it was quite good (thanks for posting, by the way). I did not process whether the people in the picture were LARPing or cosplaying because I don't actually care; I'm just poking some gentle fun at the peculiar tribalisms of the RPG world.
