    Yes, now, are you going to claim that someone actually took the MLB rulebook, and specifically cut that down to the game your 5-year-old plays? Because I would be dubious of that proposition. If not, then this example is not really relevant. I submit that the rules of baseball in general are pretty simple, and that the MLB has branched from that and produces Advanced Edition Baseball for...

    Insofar as we don't actually have the data, and no realistic way to gather it properly, no. We actually have rulebooks that don't depend on gathering data from statistically relevant samples of people. Define "mass published". I think saying *EVERY* one has *THOUSANDS* of pages of material is nowhere near accurate - either a poorly considered statement, or unreasonable levels of...

    I think uphread I did get into the difference between complicated and complex. A mechanical watch has dozens of very specifically formed moving parts - it is complicated. What it does is tell the time, which is not complex. Three bodies moving under their mutual gravitational attraction is super-easy to specify. It is not a complicated system. Their resulting orbits, however area complex and...

    That isn't the best. Many years ago now, Jason Carter (who played the ranger, Marcus) once, rather drunk on the dance floor at a convention referred to a woman on the dance floor as a "dominatrix" (intending it as a compliment). Dr. Demento was the DJ, and he just happened to start Tom Lehrer's "Masochism Tango" at that moment. It was a little surreal.

    I'd maybe go for something obscure but high-quality. Perhaps a third-party adventure. Like Kevin Kulp's "Of Sound Mind." I feel like you sort of have to lean into the 'dungeons' and the 'dragons' part of the name, so what adventures have the most of those, other than Dragonlance which already had its shot? Honestly, R.A. Salvatore's The Crystal Shard hits a lot of the right beats. Big...

    The OP opened the question more broadly than that: "Also note that it doesn't matter if the PCs start at 3rd or 13th. " I'm noting that it may matter what the levels and level ranges are, for some rewards. In some cases you may be handing them less of a reward, and more of a plot complication, depending on the situation.

    Well, if you take it that way, we fundamentally cannot measure the complexity of a game except for a particular table, and then only after the entire campaign is completed, and we know what rules did get used, both official and house-rules. At that point, there's not much more to say, because this isn't practical or constructive. Moreoever, I don't buy it. It seems perfectly fair to me to...

    You seem to forget that a major issue with complexity is the time it takes to resolve actions. Even if I am not the one initiating a grapple, any time anything in the game grapples, I have to sit around waiting for the grapple to be resolved. In this way, a player's game experience is linked to the complexity of all rules used at the table, not just the ones they personally use.

Trying to take their power was a risk, because they were powerful enough to personally clean the clocks of people who tried to take it away from them.

    Iíve played a lot of D&D games with a lot of different groups. They were all different. I have no idea what the real D&D experience is supposed to be.

    Itís a trivial enough thing that itís not worth worrying about unless itís really bothering you. Sometimes being right is the least important thing at hand.

    He said ďsettingĒ not ďCampaign SettingĒ with Capital Letters. As in a place where the story is set. He could have meant it in the context of a world-spanning campaign setting like Greyhawk; he could be talking about a single town or dungeon like Waterdeep. We just donít know how he uses the term; all we know is how each of us uses the term. Heís probably enjoying reading us all pouring...

    Jason Buhlman was a GaryCon running PF2 events. I think they were the playtest rules. Last year they swore players to secrecy and collected back all materials. I wonder if they had any closed door games with the release PF2 stuff? I would have liked to have seen some of that or played it.

    The D&D logo, name, art, etc. arenít OGL. You should probably remove those from the front page of the website if youíre using the OGL. No ads is definitely appreciated! :)

    Iím fortunate in that the groups Iíve hooked up with over the years have made in-character discussion and debate part of the table dynamic; a few years ago we had an absolute blast with the Paizo Hellís Rebels AP, even to the point of having fairly involved discussions in-character about beliefs, political theory, and religious freedom!

  • 01:27 PM - Kryx mentioned Morrus in post D&D Promises to Make the Game More Queer
    It's not a double standard, because you are comparing two different things. The reverse of "I'm gay and you must accept me" is not "I'm anti-gay and you must accept me", it's "I'm straight and you must accept me". And guess what? People do accept straight people! There are no anti-straight marches. "I object to your existence" is not the equivalent to "I exist", and the two should never be compared to each other. I really admire your stance on this issue. It's great to see a community leader take such a stance. This hobby, like the world as a whole, has no room for homophobia. While many in this thread will claim "Oh, I'm not homophobic" we've all seen their words that dance around the issue, but we know what is truly meant. Thanks again for standing up against hate Morrus.

    Morrus : As somebody who sings with the local LGBTQ chorus (as an ally--I don't want to claim my collaborators' experiences as my own), who has played D&D with at least four LGBTQ individuals, and who has heard a smattering of the stories of exclusion--people who can't take their spouses to family reunions, others who can only go home for Christmas if they accept being called by the wrong name and the wrong pronouns--I personally thank you for confronting bigotry where you see it and for making enworld an inclusive community.

    @Morrus needs to increase the PHP memory limit to something larger than 128M as a test, just to make sure it's not something simple. The error I'm reproducing, however, is over a value smaller than the current limit, so I'll troubleshoot some more.

    Morrus I was tracking renown/reputation in our Night Below / Out of the Abyss mashup campaign. Not exactly a resource, but here's an example of what I did with my own adaptation of the Renown rules from the DMG/PHB: Renown (Cairngormís Hollow) Renown 1: PCs get offers of free services, sporadic free room & board, occasional offers of marriage, or small gifts like a few chickens or a goat. Renown 2: PCs get consistent free room & board, preferential treatment by guards who overlook minor infractions, and access to special quests from Lady Nydaridien. (land deed, Calrow Ruins). Renown 3: PCs treated as villagers and brought in on village ritual practices and voting, free modest lifestyle in village, Lady Nydaridien gives free use of horses in livery stables. Renown 4: PCs receive discounts on special purchases, and are afforded the same level of respect as village elders and Lady Nydaridien herself, gain access to dryad Wyraís spellcasting service and special downtime activity involving...

  • 06:47 PM - LordEntrails mentioned Morrus in post WotC Names 10 "Adepts" On Their DMs Guild Store
    So, back to the topic at hand (Sorry Morrus, replied before I saw your post to move on. I was quite ... put out about the comment I quoted and posted on to read all the replies before replying myself.). I do agree with the previous comment that I don't see how this helps build community. It might help give confidence to new people as to how to find good content, but I'm still not sure about that. IMO, good reviews and ratings, and perhaps a few trustworthy bloggers doing detailed reviews might actually help much more than this. But, at least it's something. Kudos to WotC to adapting and trying new things. They've been doing much more of this (trying new things) since the inception of 5E, and the pace is only quickening.

  • 05:00 PM - Ath-kethin mentioned Morrus in post How long have you been gaming?
    My starting point was the tabletop boardgame HeroQuest, back in 1990 or '91. Then my mom bought me a copy of ICE's Middle Earth Roleplaying Game around '92 and I couldn't make heads or tails of it. In '93 my friend bought a copy of Earthdawn, and from that point I was hooked. A year and a half later I was introduced to D&D (or more specifically, AD&D 2nd Edition) and that was that. @Morrus: I've been teaching my 3-1/2 year old the basics, moving in through the old D&D cartoon and the new Tales of Equestria game (and HeroQuest), so newbies exist. It will just be a while until he can spell well enough to join ENWorld.

    Heh, I like it, but I have no idea what the recipe for virtual gunpowder would be. Also, does that make @Morrus a Metron? @Morrus is an Organian, for sure. As for virtual gunpowder, you might want to try remodulating the transmogrifiers that govern the recplicator database. Or remove the field dampers on an EMH emitter and beam the stuff out of the holodeck. Both of those have worked for me in the past.
  • 08:55 PM - oneshot mentioned Morrus in post Star Trek Adventures: Now that the full rules are out, what do you think?
    Okay, everyone - here's what to do. Make sure your speakers are on and open this link in another tab. Go ahead. It's nothing creepy and it's safe for work. Once you've got that going - do it! - come back here. Cool. You're back. Now imagine the scene, folks: oneshot and aramis erak on Cestus III, squaring off against one another as the Metrons look on...or, in this case, as the rest of us watch them spar over dice mechanics. I'll bring the pink and green space marshmallows (ala' the buffet in Journey to Babel) and we'll see who wins the dice mechanic stats championship grudge match. Heh, I like it, but I have no idea what the recipe for virtual gunpowder would be. Also, does that make Morrus a Metron?

  • 05:43 AM - Flips mentioned Morrus in post Combat Questions
    Thank you all with your replies. We just thought that a mirror match would give us a "balanced" fight between two sets of combatants. I guess you are right, I had thought that Selena was more of a blaster than she really is, and seeing the retooled version give a good example of how a more "blaster" focused character would look. Although I agree with IvyMike about the adage, damage is one way that people tend to compare magical power. Morrus: I know it isn't trying to be D&D, but I know that this system is meant to be quite flexible to be able to work in many different settings. If we were trying to more accurately replace the higher magic setting, other than increasing the MP slightly, do you have any suggestions about how to rescale the damage progression? Thanks again so much. Everyone's answers have been very helpful.

  • 10:44 AM - Lanefan mentioned Morrus in post How to use a WIKI THREAD
    For Morrus or anyone who deals with such things: In case it matters, it seems that editing the initial post in a wiki thread does not bounce the thread to the top of the thread list (by timestamp order) the same way adding a new post does. The risk here is that some wiki threads that may be often edited and-or referred to but not often posted to (e.g. the Convention List wiki in general RPG discussion) risk falling off the first page - and thus being forgotten or missed by casual or infrequent visitors - unless they are stickied.

  • 09:38 PM - Zardnaar quoted Morrus in post Star Trek Discovery not getting any better I fear.
    Well, so did everybody. That's why they kept calling them "Klingons". I know, I didn't really go for the new look that much. Not a trekkie as such but would have preferred a tweaked older look of the Klingon's. Watching DS9 and 4 episodes in I like it more than Discovery because I like more of the characters. Discovery is basically all about Burnham and I prefer the more ensemble approach I suppose. I like Cisco and Quark, Dax, Odo, Kira etc. Orville is also great because of the characters, when Gordon is your least favourite but you still like him they're doing something right. Its basically why I liked SG1 and Atlantis over SGU.

    I can never work out when US shows are on. We get criticised for short series, but we show them from start to finish. With US shows it seems to be two weeks on, three weeks off, one week on, a week off, two more weeks off, two weeks on... sometimes Iíve actually forgotten shows exist and suddenly rediscover them a year later! A British show that has more than 6 episodes is a long UK season for me. Quality over quantity. Still Blackadder was so good.

    Same rules as starting a new TV show. Learn as they go. A big infodump at the beginning isn't likely to stick. And if they ever ask a question of that nature, generally give them the answer. In other words, you can assume the characters know, and can access that info as needed, but the players can learn it as they play. Yeah. I might give a brief intro but ultimately I presume both competence and superior knowledge on the part of the characters in relation to the players.
  • 03:32 PM - Steve Cansdale quoted Morrus in post [WOIN] Called Shots in combat
    The way I see it, big critters are likely to have higher VITAL but lower RANGED. So it's easy to *hit* a brontosaurus, but it isn't easy to knock it down or push it! I could see an argument for disarm, and as a GM I'd probably allow it. Yep - I get the logic on the first three but I think I will house-rule that Disarm is vs Ranged/Melee Defense (unless, of course, the weapon is a natural one :p). Thanks again!

  • 11:55 PM - Alexander Kalinowski quoted Morrus in post RPG Writer Zak S Accused Of Abusive Behaviour
    If you really do believe it is just between them and don't care... then why are you posting in this thread??? I never understood some people's need to take the time and effort to publicly proclaim that they don't care about something. It completely undermines the point they are claiming to make. That's a logical fallacy. I do not care about the actual subject because without verifiable evidence it's all rumor-mongering to me. I do care (at least enough to post here) about people not exhibiting the same attitude to the issue. I think it's called "empathy". There's nothing to be empathic about as I have no way of deciding if the testimony is truthful or a bunch of lies. Without that information who should I be empathic to - Zak Smith or his accusers? Who has been wronged here? I don't know, so I will abstain from taking sides. Do you know?

    Damage always soaks unless something says otherwise. That's why I posted this to find out if it soaks or not. Nothing wrong with what you're saying but I was hoping to a yes or no answer and maybe a book or page number. Sorry if that wasn't clear. The book itself doesn't do a good job explaining what does or doesn't soak.

    Yes, they included them. These are characters created on DDB, nothing more. Nearly 9 million of them! That's not quite right. They filtered based on metrics that indicated whether or not a character was being used. That included things like whether hit points changed and such. I don't know the details. I'm sure it's not perfect. But they did take a shot at only including 'active' characters. AD AD
  • 02:19 AM - ClaytonCross quoted 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...
