    While I agree that the CR system from 5e needs some love for people who donít want 6 encounters a day, I will say that our 5e group just finished the ultimate final battle from Princes of the Apocalypse at 12th level, involving one of the ďPrincesĒ and a ton of minions (a very difficult encounter) in just over an hour! Compared to 3rd Edition or Pathfinder, in my experience, that would have been...

    First, where was Lya that they were able to contact her so readily? The simplest solution might be to assume that Finona's crew screws up. If they get word they're on a clock and they rush, maybe they open the seal prematurely and get attacked. Finona and maybe some minions get to the Dracon, and a whirlpool damages it. The whirlpool might just last a few minutes, preferably striking right as...

    Speaking of soundtracks, I'm running a Pathfinder campaign with four paladin PCs, called Smite Evil. This is the overture, from the show Human Target. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ceCFKLp26w Bear McCreary has a great sound, so a few times I've found tracks by him for various shows he's scored and tried to envision cool scenes where I could use them as soundtrack. Human Target had a villain...

    In four years, this is honestly the first time iíve Even heard this, and I guarantee my group hasnít been using it this way; we have been using it the same way that 3.5 and Pathfinder used it, never realizing there was a difference. Iíll be sure to bring this to their attention, now, though!

    Maybe I got you crossed with Ajar. One of the GMs invented "I Had a Threeway." And yeah, you can escape by leaving the palace, but nobody knows that, so people will stay in the safety of the building. Aodhan won't want to leave while his people are in danger, though he could be convinced.

    Itís not an officialness ranking system. WotC sells books to the customer. Sometimes a third party will also sell books to the customer. There isnít really a first or second party in common parlance; a third party publisher is a third party to the relationship between IP owner and customer. Itís just a colloquialism.

    They have to stay within the area. This isn't clear enough in the current book, but the v1.2 update will make it clearer with double cost for lasting effects outside the area. A MAG score of 16 is epic enough to allow an all-day invisibility.

    This covers most of my campaigns as well. There is an element of "do not specify that which you don't have to" involved here. If the arrangement of the planes is not plot-relevant, don't specify it. THat way if and when it becomes relevant, you can make it what you want or need without contradicting yourself.

Every leader in history who has presided over war has had to do the calculus of, "Is the end I/we seek worth the lives it costs." The vast majority of them are not considered mad - so being willng to have people die for an end is not, itself, sign of madness. If he is correct,...

    TheSword is correct about the CoD thing. Second, I think the Cleric still has a role as primary buffer/debuffer, as spells like bless, aid, lesser restoration, remove curse, etc. can attest. The Druid shares some of this, but the druidís Focus is split in an average party between buffing/debuffing and something else (area control, front line for Moon Druid, etc.) But in truth, no class in...

    Yeah, so you try to equal the MDP total without having any individual foes more than two MDP higher. So for your party, throw 25 MDP at them is a fairly easy encounter, as long as you don't have any single foes which will stomp them. A leader 2 MDP higher can work. So a leader at 7 MDP and four others at 5 MDP.

What is the chance that you lose the five doctors, and none of the others in the room? The number of different groups of five that...

    On that score, I think it is okay. Cutting a gene pool in half is dangerous when the population is already small. But going from a gene pool of 7+ billion, to 3.5 billion? YOu still hae plenty of the genes you need. The chances of completely losing something important, or forcing inbreeding with a population that's still that large isn't significant.

    No. It isn't that simple. I mean, realistically... First, all your cities burn down. Because half of all the aircraft in the air crash - some of them into cities. We've seen what happens when planes meet skyscrapers. And the roads are clogged with half the cars crashed into the other half. So the first responders (now only half as many) can't get anywhere. And the cities burn. In...

    You know, this thread is years old, so I cannot remember if this got said, and I'm not going back to read the whole thing for just this point... A wormhole is a shortcut through a curved space. To go through normal space from points A to B, you travel some distance X. Go between points A and B through a wormhole, and you go some distance Y. Now, you have three cases. Y=0 is the...

    We have umpteen different types of players. We have different types of games for differnt types of players. If your players have fun with the strategizing around all the numbers, then the detailed accounting is better. If your players really aren't into tactical math, and lean more to the dramatic, then advantage is probably a better bet.

    Well, the Green Knight change is because the Dreaming goes from being 'life' to being 'death,' so no more popping back to life after being ventilated by bullets or swords. The Dreaming still has 'dream' magic, though. Leon should be fine. Korrigan would keep Jiese and Av powers, but if you don't think the player would object, some new powers might be interesting, and he could figure them...

  • 11:02 AM - Li Shenron mentioned Morrus in post PbP games: what works and what doesn't?
    Oh and I have a suggestion for Morrus too... try to see if there is a possibility for adding a forum functionality by which a forum member can subscribe to a thread and get notifications when someone else replies to the thread. AFAIK this is not how it works at the moment, you get notifications only if you receive a PM, mention or XP. Having notifications on subscribed threads would greatly help a PbP player know when a game has progressed, and reach the thread in a couple of clicks rather than having to find it in the subforums.

  • 10:29 AM - Lylandra mentioned Morrus in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    ...te, caring etc then men" so if a woman speaks up "loudly", she's acting against her role. I know that this holds true more in face-to-face environments, whereas online debates are often no more than mere black-on-white (or inversed) text. Still she identified as a woman. And from what I read, Afrodyte is done with playing the "nice little woman". She's (rightfully) upset about the fact that there are many victim-blaming posts or posts filled with micro-misogyny in this thread that were not being called out while her arguments were dissected. She's also under the impression that male-identifying posters are being less challenged and have it far easier being listened to. And I understand her. Because being a woman who's active online, who has a mind of her own and who gets vocal from time to time can be hard. That being said, I still think that ENWorld is one of the best places to discuss my/our hobby, including systemic problems in our community. And I'm really thankful for Morrus and the other mods to keep it this civil. (Because, honestly, other, more general gaming forums oftentimes look as if they're the little brethren of /b )

  • 08:19 PM - RedJenOSU mentioned Morrus in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    So I want to say I am sorry for the stuff I am missing and I want to do better. I donít do cons but since the problem is everywhere I need to step up and do better in general. In general women are very willing to give individual men several chances to get it right so long as they are trying to move in a positive direction. Personally, I'll excuse any first offense that is done without malice (doing something on purpose to push buttons is not without malice in my book). I'll even accept slip-ups if you keep trying to do better. We're all human (I didn't see any AI's here) and humans make mistakes, so I'm never looking for perfection. I'm looking for progress and growth. I'll be honest, this discussion has gone on to the point where I'm surprised. That's pleasantly surprising and speaks well for Morrus and ENWorld's moderation.
  • 04:00 PM - RedJenOSU mentioned Morrus in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    So if @Morrus told you to stop he would not be on your side and he you be sustaining and supporting the structural dynamics that allow harassment and assault to continue and thrive in this environment so you won't feel safe? No. That does not seem consistent with your viewpoint. Do you yield to authority (Morrus) and because lowkey13 has none per say in this environment you deem him as an enemy if he requests the same thing from you? No. Le me try to put the dots close together. Afrodyte has stated previously that if @Morrus feels that what she is doing should stop, then upon being notified of his choice as the moderator, Then she will respect his request as the moderator. At that time she would discontinue her attempt to demonstrate through her requests (Name, SSN, pic) instances in this discussion that she personally feels fall somewhere between unfriendly and hostile toward women.
  • 03:33 PM - Sadras mentioned Morrus in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    Yet, I find it interesting that my fairly benign statements showing that I don't automatically trust every self-proclaimed good dude are getting more heat than some of the deeply unsettling things several posters have been saying in the past 15 pages I've been participating on this thread. That is a curious statement. The last 15 pages have been relatively mild compared to what had been posted before where Morrus got involved several times. As for you getting heat more than the trolls, citation needed. I'm not seeing any evidence of what you're claiming, especially given the XP count which equates to support. If you really think that an exaggerated demonstration of the daily precautions I have to take to avoid harassment and assault is unfairly blaming poor, innocent men who are just trying to have a discussion, you haven't been paying attention to what several women and men have been saying on this thread, and you are not on my side (whatever being on my side supposedly means), and it all of it sustains and supports the structural dynamics that allow harassment and assault to continue and thrive in environments where people are supposed to be safe. So if @Morrus told you to stop he would not be on your side and he you be sustaining and supporting the structural dynamics that allow harassment and assault to continue and thrive in this environment so you won't feel safe?

  • 02:58 AM - Mistwell mentioned Morrus in post [+] Plus Threads
    ...o started the thread then replied "You need to read up on the concept of "plus" threads if you think I want an echo chamber, or if you don't see the very valid reasons why the site supports such threads. If you want to keep discussing this that's fine, but I will need to ask you to start a new thread to do it." A second user said they doubted the premise of the thread was possible, and was told again "This is a plus thread. If you want to argue against the premise of the thread, start a new one." When questioned on that, the poster then said, "Questioning the point of the thread is exactly what you don't get to do in a plus thread." Can a user now declare a thread they start to be designated a "plus" thread and therefore police their thread for anyone who questions a premise of the topic? Are we now supposed to always start a new thread if we question the premise of a designated "plus" thread? It's possible I missed that new rule. I asked elsewhere and someone mentioned Morrus had discussed the possibility of such a thing but it had never been enacted as a rule as far as they knew. So, is this a thing now?

  • 05:34 AM - Ancalagon mentioned Morrus in post Most popular class/race combos
    Two comments: 1: I note that the "spread" of classes is much less dramatic than the race spread. The most popular class is a bit more than twice as popular as the least popular class. That's a good thing IMO! Race wise however, the spread is what, 12-13 fold? That's huge. Even is we exclude the non PHB races, the spread remains about 5-fold. I have to say that ... I'm ok with that. I would be far more concerned if the situation was reversed 2: Morrus : this is very cool info, but I'm curious why you are re-posting it?
  • 01:54 AM - Yaarel mentioned Morrus in post Most popular class/race combos
    @Morrus Did the top 10 list accidentally leave out the Elf Wizard? The chart says there are 2744 Elf Wizards and 2568 Human Wizards. This means, the Elf Wizard is a more popular combo than the Human Wizard.

  • 06:17 PM - CapnZapp mentioned Morrus in post I gotta ask: the "laugh" points, are they meant as appreciation or as mockery??
    Morrus: this issue doesn't go away. I'm going to report a series of my own posts where a user clicks laugh (yes, I know the button is called "laugh with this post") even though my remarks are not in any sense made with humor in mind. In short, I find it impossible to interpret this as anything else than mockery. I am writing this post because I know you are busy and might have a mod handle the reporting, so you might not even see the series of reported posts. (I need to post this first so I can include a link in my reports for your moderation convenience) If you or your mods redtext the user to stop abusing the laugh functionality all is well in the world. But I am ressurrecting this thread to clearly flag that it is not a new issue, and it remains a serious one. I've gotten dozens of laugh points I could have done well without, and I feel that if I do not bring thus back up to your attention it will never stop. I can't be alone in getting these points that only burn. If y...

  • 08:06 AM - Ancalagon mentioned Morrus in post Let's Look At Alchemy In Pathfinder 2!
    There was apparently a podcast that divulged more information (I don't have a link at the moment) - Alchemical items have "levels" from 1 to 20 - Bombs were supposed to require two hands to use, but that's being changed to one hand Also from the comments, PF2 will NOT use item weight, but a "bulk" system similar to Star finder. Another comment is that alchemists can get more resonance, which is rather important because they need it to use magical items AND wield alchemy. The start of day items, as you guys have guessed, are subsidized for a better rate if you can predict ahead of time which items you will need and make duplicates. Plus, the alchemist gets a class feature that adds extra resonance and scales, Intel for you Morrus ! :)

  • 10:06 PM - dragoner quoted Morrus in post My Wormhole Map: Traveller
    My fictional gravity shield stops your fictional gravity beam. Turns out itís not hard to conceive. ;) Or say another gravity beam blocks it, the way we shoot down a missile with another missile. I agree it's not that difficult to think of a countermeasure. Its easy to do the hand wave magic is technology thing. Doing time consuming orbital mechanics calcs can break the flow of the game, and nobody would call it easy; there is a balance in there, and Marc W Miller said that one of the hardest things about making Traveller was extrapolating technology into the far future. At the end of the day it's still just a game, it is better spending your time figuring out what you consider entertainingly plausible, than sweating over hand waves made 40+ years ago.
  • 05:32 AM - Maxperson quoted Morrus in post Avenger's Infinity War *Spoiler* Discussion
    Agreed. Heís not portrayed as mad, or called ďthe mad TitanĒ. I donít know the comics, but the movie does not display an irrational protagonist (and he is this movieís protagonist). His very plan and the way he carried it out is "mad." He's had decades to figure things out and settle on a plan that doesn't work, as opposed to others that would. The world has gone from 3 billion in 1960 to 7 billion in 2011. It more than doubled in just 51 years. Halving the population doesn't do much to save resources since the populations will replace themselves very quickly. His plan is insane. His single minded pursuit of it, to the point of murdering what he loved most is also kinda crazy. If he was rational, he would have settled on a solution that works, such as altering birth rates so that the populations drop to half and stay that way, or just replenishing the resources while making sure that populations don't increase further. So while they don't explicitly call him the Mad Titan,...

    He's Hans Gruber, rather than the Joker. He's no Hans Gruber. Gruber was smart and sane. Thanos is far from a genius and nuts.
  • 12:27 AM - billd91 quoted Morrus in post Avenger's Infinity War *Spoiler* Discussion
    Weíre not missing it. The movie is. Thatís not a thing in this film. What are you expecting? That he acts like one of the Three Stooges? That he laughs maniacally like a cliche? That he raves like a lunatic? How boring that would be! His method is to act relatively calmly and entirely ruthlessly toward a crazy end. Heís far more menacing as a result (and far more in keeping with his character from the comics).

  • 08:14 PM - ExploderWizard quoted Morrus in post Player Responsibility for the GM's Fun??
    In any group activity, it's everybody's equal responsibility to ensure everybody else is having fun. Nobody's an employee in this situation. I'd certainly agree that people have responsibility for themselves, too. To an extent, that responsibility is not so much "ensure everybody is having fun" but more "ensure you are not ruining anybody's fun". "Equal" doesn't mean "a lot" or "a burden"; just the normal social amount. The word "responsibility" has a tenor to it which kinda feels off though; this should just happen organically. Each participant involved in the game should be contributing to all of the other participant's fun. Game master or player status does not matter. The players are not solely responsible for the GM's fun and the GM is not solely responsible for the players' fun. If each participant does his/her best to provide fun for the rest of the table then the group as a whole should have a great time.

  • 10:37 PM - Sword of Spirit quoted Morrus in post List of monsters confirmed in Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes
    There are both devil and demon archfiends in the book. Yes, but we've got the top leaders of the demons, and only the second tier leaders of the devils. There is a lack of equivalency. I'm sure there is a devil themed adventure coming up at some point--they gave them just as much attention in the MM and the DMG as they did the demons. They may have given us lesser archdevils in this book because the Lords of the Nine are slated for the adventure.
  • 08:26 PM - Chaosmancer quoted Morrus in post Another 10 Mordenkainen's Tome Questions!
    Fey Step teleports 30' once per short rest. At 3rd level it gains one of four additional effects depending on what "season" you chose. For example, Winter means a creature within 5' of you becomes frightened unless they save. OK, that's all ten questions! I'm out of here for the night! Ooh, that is actually a really fascinating addition to them. Now I must wonder what the others are.
  • 07:32 AM - Yaarel quoted Morrus in post Monsters & Backgrounds: New Pathfinder 2 Updates!
    Backgrounds -- two ability boosts, skill feat, lore skill proficiency. If I understand that correctly, I like how lore (knowledge skill) proficiency comes from background. That makes sense. It is a good place to locate knowledge skills, that tend to be less useful in combat.

    I haven't seen Eberron mentioned in the text, but bear in mind that I just got it and haven't read every word, so I can't promise that there is no mention of it. There's no big header that I can see with the word "Eberron" in it. 3/10! 7 to go! They did say Vulkoor that Eberron Drow God is in the book., so maybe it's in the section that discussed Drow Gods.

    Because. That's one of ten. I regret nothing.
  • 09:16 PM - TwoSix quoted Morrus in post I will answer 10 questions about Mordenkainen's Tome
    Apologies. Gith, not Giff. Giff are not a playable race. Sorry! Preorder canceled!
  • 08:04 PM - TerraDave quoted Morrus in post I will answer 10 questions about Mordenkainen's Tome
    Aha. Yes, in the Star Spawn entry. The Star Spawn are servants and heralds of the Elder Evils. The Elder Evils are beings which exist in realms lethal to mortal life and cannot enter the Material Plane. There's about 3 paragraphs on Elder Evils and five Star Spawn stat blocks, such as the Star Spawn Larva Mage which is like one of those Kyuss servants in Age of Worms. Far Realm? Also, if you want to go all HPL/CoC, Elder Evils should be able to enter the Material Plane, as long as the stars are right, the sacrifices are plentiful, and the music sufficiently atonal.

    I'm not seeing anything. Doesn't mean it's not there, but I can't find it. Thank you. It was a little obscure; I didn't want you to be one question shy of your goal.
  • 06:42 PM - Kobold Avenger quoted Morrus in post I will answer 10 questions about Mordenkainen's Tome
    If there is a mention, I haven't noticed it yet. Do you have any idea where in the book it might be? I think it was after Star Spawn.
  • 06:04 PM - Ancalagon quoted Morrus in post I will answer 10 questions about Mordenkainen's Tome
    Yes. Two subraces. 13 pages of content.Wow... just to be clear this isn't a typo/misunderstanding, the hypo people are a playable race (Not the gith)
  • 06:04 PM - jgsugden quoted Morrus in post I will answer 10 questions about Mordenkainen's Tome
    Yes. Two subraces. 13 pages of content.Just to be sure: He said Giff (Hippomen from Space), not Gith (Githyanki/zerai). I was told Giff was not a playable race elsewhere.

    Oblex Spawn is a Cr 1/4 tiny ooze. Green. Amorphous and Aversion to Fire. Does bludgeoning and psychic damage with its pseudopod attack. Adult Oblex is CR 5, medium. Eat memories does psychic damage and memory drains the target - -1d4 from ability checks or attacks. Each time it increases to d6, d8, etc. until d20 when the victim falls unconscious. Oblex learns all its languages and proficiencies. Sulfurous Impersonation lets it assume the appearance of a memory drained victim. Elder Oblex is CR 10.It sounds like an update on Obliviax... stealing the name of the stuff you make in grade school. Cool. I think I like Obliviax, but I can't seem to remember if I enjoyed using it...

  • 03:51 AM - MNblockhead quoted Morrus in post Advice About Game Reviewing
    I'm not sure an individual review would have much effect on anything anyway - most people who read reviews read *lots* of reviews (though it depends on the product -- for an electronic product such as a TV or a laptop, people research them in great detail; for a book, not so much). Only an avalanche of bad reviews would really have a notable effect. Each review contributes to the overall buzz, but very few people rely on a single review for a product. Agreed with one Caveat. There are some reviewers I respect enough that they influence me for or against something despite a large number of reviews that recommend the opposite. Also, there have been well-written reviews that have changed my mind on something that I had written off. This usually only goes one way. I think that I'm not going to like something, my intuition enforced by many bad reviews, and a thoughtfully written review convinces me to give it a chance. But the opposite is rarely the case. If there is something I'm convinc...

    Which set of names do you like better? The actual names. I published a supplement about Trappist. Each planet populated, all developing within sight of one another (although not reach). Sounds cool, it could be done with a Tekumel/Lost Colony vibe too.
