    Fair, though as I recall, previous versions of the 5e SRD had more limited content, more akin to what's in Basic. I glanced at the license, but I didn't probe into the content yesterday. If you wanna be really picky, WotC uses version 1.0a, released in 2000. I was not confident enough that *NO OTHER* versions existed out there to assert such.

    Classically - illusions are what he does. Well, again classically, there's a group of extradimensional villains from the comics called the Elementals. We have the basic question of whether they are actually here, or if they are something Mysterio cooked up for him to be a hero fighting. I don't expect other cameos of note, as they won't want to reveal who survives Avengers:...

    If you want an example of a world without an open gaming license, look back historically to TSR (owner of D&D prior to Wizards of the Coast) and their positions on D&D compatible content in the early and mid-1990s -- it was an environment where they insisted that anything that included even terminology now common in the genre (such as phrases like "hit points" or "armor class") became property of...

    Leska is motivated by a loathing of pretty much everyone, which turned into a desire to have power over everyone. Her personal goal is conquest for the sake of conquest, and she's just using Coaltongue's death as a justification to rally her people into 'finding the ones responsible.' Also a bit of 'make a show of force so no one thinks we're weak.' Since there's not a ton of long-distance...

    The OGL isn't the "3E" OGL or the "5E" OGL. There's just the OGL. And it hasn't been dumped, because it's non-rescindable. Both 3E and 5E have had some (but not all) of their content released under it, as have many other games. One of the main purposes of the OGL, as Ryan Dancey - its architect - said: it means that D&D is here to stay. Nothing can make it go away, not even the whims of a...

    *Basic* 5e was released under the OGL, which to a quick scan doesn't appear particularly different from past OGLs. Rather than changing the control by changing the OGL, they did so by limiting content in the SRD - the basic mechanics are all there, but many of the classes are missing. So, anyone can write to the system, and even do something interesting with large changes (like Mutants and...

    I'm going to guess that a simple photographs of what already exists, a scene that could be seen by someone walking by, is *not* going to be considered transformative. After all, the architect and the artist probably were considering the setting, so the "juxtaposition" is their thought before it is the photographer's. For it to be transformative, you need to take a *small* segment of it, and...

    Let try an example to ensure we are all reading the table right. So lets assume you need a 5 or better to hit, and do an average of 10 dmg before the feat is applied. So the formula is 5.5 - .25X. So that 5.5 - .25 * 10 = 5.5 - 2.5 = 3. So this means that my average damage increases by 3. Now where I'm confused is when you defined average damage. So for example if I had a greatsword...

    It depends on whether you were using that very abusive Unearthed Arcana system, where you rolled 9d6 (keep the best three) for your INT, etc. Most of the time, our groups used the ones from the DMG, most often either 3d6 12 times (keep best six scores) or 4d6 for each score, drop lowest.

    I have to agree -- in 1e, sleep was keyed to hit dice (which never change) instead of to hit points (which constantly change), meaning in D&D5 you can whittle a foe into sleep territory. Get them down to their last 20 or 30 hit points, and you can end the fight early. Not to mention, darts were quite frankly crap in the 1e days, 3 attacks or not.

    Okay, finished a thing. I can take a moment on this. The trick is to not think of this as "one twin stays at home, and one flies out for a while". Think of it as "one twin stays at home, the other goes to a place and comes back" Imagine that we have twins. One stays on Earth, and the other is sent to Alpha Centauri, 4 light years away. They will travel at 0.8c. We will assume that...

    We definitely need a non-American thread about Discovery etc. at some point, because they're always mainly about American streaming packages. Makes it tough to actually discuss the show online.

    Rules as Written, they should be able to be charmed; Elementals don't require sleep, but there's nothing that says they are immune to being charmed, nor are they undead; therefore, the magical sleep of the sleep spell would not be ignored.

    Fantasy Grounds has sent me over some graphs showing the top games played on its virtual tabletop platform throughout the whole of 2018. Unsurprisingly, the top three are D&D 5th Edition (67%), Pathfinder (12%), and Savage Worlds (5%). These are followed by Starfinder, D&D 3.5, Call of Cthulhu, D&D 4E, Star Wars, then Pathfinder 2. The figures are much the same as we've seen previously, with an...

    I can't say that something is *impossible*. But, to be frank, it is not "fantasy" to think that there are limits. Warping space requires energies on par with the mass-energy of a thing that would produce similar warping. Individuals carrying around a power-pack equivalent to the mass-energy of mountains and small planets? Highly unlikely. The darned thing would be prone to collapse into a...

    The best (for me, anyway) implementations of such in D&D-like games I have seen ran as follows: No critical fumbles for anyone. PCs can make critical hits. Primary bad guys - like "named NPCs" or end-bosses that have a reasonable chance of appearing more than once - may be able to make critical hits. Basically, as a GM, I can always adjust my encounters beforehand to take into...

But, I didn't want to support the idea that I'd pay for a whole streaming service for just one show, so I have yet to see any of it. But, on the flip side, giving me a *ton* of Trek doesn't help, if that Trek is crappy. I would prefer them to...

    I think for one of our Kickstarters we offered this at 200 pixels per inch, which got it about 21 inches across. You could probably even do 100 pixels per inch and it would still look fine on a table. But at the time the print shop we were using charged $4 per square foot, so it would have been over $30 to make, and for us to get a profit after shipping would have been $50 or something.

    Yes, but probably not what you think. The decisions to keep a comic in print are generally made on the basis of single-issue sales month over month. And there, it seems that comics led by female or minority characters don't do terribly well. However, diversity leads top the sales of trade paperback formats. Basically, the folks who read diversity titles want to read an entire story at...

  • 01:39 AM - Mercurius mentioned Morrus in post Mike Mearls “…it’s now obvious how to live without Bonus Actions”' And 6th Edition When Players Ask For It!
    I really wouldn't worry about a new edition coming out anytime soon, and I don't think anything's "in the air" (naught Morrus). BUT...while I haven't worked in game design, I imagine that as soon as you publish a new edition, you start a new folder called "Ideas for the Next Edition," and that over three plus years, things start adding up. So if you're Mearls, of course you're thinking about the next edition, at least on the back burner. But there are a lot of steps between here and there, like the alleged Unearthed Arcana book, for one. I could see something like: 2014: 5E core rules 2017/18: first expansion - planes/psionics/odds and ends 2021/22: second expansion - epic play 2024: 50th Anniversary Edition

  • 01:39 AM - LordEntrails mentioned Morrus in post Actions in starship combat for those with no useful skills
    It sounds like several of you are trying to disagree with me, but are actually saying something similar to what I'm saying; ... Now, that doesn't mean someone who is an expert in piloting or gunnery couldn't do it better. They would know advanced options or routines that the opposing computer would be using and how to compensate for that, but such would not be required to atleast be moderately effective... Remember, Morrus was basically asking how can PC's feel useful on a starship if they don't have starship skills; What self actions can you think of for characters who have no useful skills in starship combat? They have no engineering or medical or piloting or gunnery or computers or sensors etc. skills -- but you want the player to feel involved ... In short, there is no reason a PC can't do something useful on a starship, they just won't be able to do it as well as an expert. So, from a play perspective, all the characters (assuming the ship have enough systems) can do something interesting. Saying you can't man the laser canon unless you have a gunnery skill, can't work damage control unless you are an engineer, can't pilot the ship etc is a poorly designed system (imo).

Now I am getting notifications about people liking and quoting my fabulous posts - in threads which I have not posted at all - or even visited. After some investigation, the posts referenced are Morrus'. Then today I went to check out my profile and while my name is at the top, Morrus info comes up. Uhh......

  • 02:29 AM - Quickleaf mentioned Morrus in post Mike Mearls' AMA Summary
    Thanks for organizing and recording everything Morrus! I was really interesting by Mike's comments on making a newbie-friendly dungeon crawl balancing structure and flow-of-play. Definitely an area, like initiative, where there's lots of room for experimentation! What is something you have tried putting in the game, but could never find the right mechanics to make it work? I'd love to find a way to manage a dungeon crawl that's very newbie friendly, that provides enough structure to give new DMs the confidence to run the game, but that doesn't become a set of rules that devolves into playing the rules, rather than playing the game. Basically, a framework for the game that gives DMs a little more creative support without replacing the DM's creativity. It's a narrow path to walk. The rules for exploration in 5e are fine, but I think they're too much of a bother for experienced DMs and too mechanistic for newbies to really benefit from them.

  • 04:02 PM - Desh-Rae-Halra mentioned Morrus in post Meet a Professional Game Master
    Dragonblade I feel ya.I was bringing extra delicious community snacks in hopes of the DM actually reading the module before we started... Celebrim: $80 per player per session? What exactly does the player get for that? For $80, I better get to sit in a nice new leather recliner, there better be someone working an omelette station that has plenty of bacon, and I players get a handy as a consolation if they fail a saving throw for starters... Seriously, if you are spending 60 hours to run a 4 hour session, something needs to be adjusted. What would the player get for $80 besides you knowing the rules and being prepared? Morrus I disagree. Mercer and Perkins are different in that their players are not paying them to run games, they are running games to promote their channel (Mercer) or a brand (D&D). They are getting paid by others ( to view, to increase sales, etc). I suppose we can say they are Professional Game Masters, but this doesn't seem the same as the dude who is just charging to run a game. They are more like Professional Game Promoters who do so through the DM role.

  • 09:05 PM - doctorbadwolf mentioned Morrus in post Unearthed Arcana Returns to Monthly With Some Revised Subclasses
    Actually, according to Christian doctrine, Christ is God. Discussing the game stats for a deity actively revered by somewhere around a billion folks might not be the best idea on a forum that's Grandma-friendly and has a no politics rule (which, presumably, also applies to its first cousin of religion). Only for trinitarians. Non trinitarian Christians, Jesus is a man, and closer to an angel than to being God, as such. A perfect Favored Soul. Lets ask @Morrus , before continuing any discussion of the particulars of religious figures as examples of character concepts, though. I don't see the harm, as long as we keep it to the context of DnD, and using them as examples. Ie, as long as we talk about them the same way you'd discuss Odin. I worship Odin, but I'm not gonna get offended by a discussion of what class we use to represent him in DnD. Even though the right answer is clearly a Warlock variant with himself as the Patron. "Sacrificed myself to myself" from the Havamal. Also, he used magics normally only used by female practitioners, and did crazy stuff like ripping his eye out to gain knowledge. I'd either use the Hexblade or Raven Queen as a base, or steal bits from both. Raven Queen lets him grab Tome for the added spells and rituals, and still have Ravens. Harder to give him two wolves, though. Maybe make up a Conjure X spell to give him that just summons twin wolves? Definately some divination in the spell list. Other than that, j...

    Morrus I don't know. I'm not a current writer but I do think getting that module upfront in AL is pretty good. I think I heard WotC used to pay $700 a mod and give them away, essentially. Now I've heard many of the authors are making more than that, sometimes much more. And I've heard positive things from the AL authors. Though I imagine I might be biased somehow. Are there any AL authors here that prefer the older way, or some other way? I'd appreciate any thoughts.

    Hi Morrus I've got a small request for EN5ider, I guess it probably applies to Trailseeker too. References to other articles are done in this format: * Ari Marmell, “Volumes of Forgotten Lore: Divine,” EN World EN5ider, https://www.patreon.com/posts/ volumes-of-lore-3140034 Which is great except it would be really, really useful if references included the EN5ider number, as that is how I can easily find the PDF I'm after rather than having to search for a term or looking through my EN5ider folder. In this case I searched my folder for "Lore" (got too many hits) tried "divine" (wasn't in that search), so I then tried "Volumes of Forgotten Lore" and got this result: 83238 So then I had to open them both to figure out which is the correct one, because the first one was Arcane. So if the references were like this: * Ari Marmell, “Volumes of Forgotten Lore: Divine,” EN World EN5ider 31, https://www.patreon.com/posts/ volumes-of-lore-3140034 It would be a lot easier.

  • 12:49 AM - ClaytonCross quoted Morrus in post Epic Monsters: Dracula (5E)
    That's because he's set in the real world, so he doesn't need to be. In a D&D world those "few well motivated brits" are a party of competent adventurers with arcane and divine magic, skilled at arms. Kind of like the group of "Brits" was made of a Monster Hunter (Van Helsing), a Gunslinger (The American Texan), a swordsman (The Rich snob who appeared to have some training), a Healer (the Doctor), and highly motivated but mostly useless Lawyer husband (I don't remember him ever doing anything but be a snack for the 3 sisters and story point obstacle for Dracula, so Story Arch NPC?).

    I think those things incorporate a temporary grab. Attacks aren't described in detail. I can see that perspective, but only in a smoked filled room through a stained glass window. I get your point, I just think it is more clear with my approach. As it stands now, he could "miss" on all his unarmed attacks and still "hit" with the bite. That just seems a bit off to me.

It looks awesome if you want to make a multi-year commitment. Including not just character turnover--which happens in CoC, but also player turnover--which happens in RL.

  • 01:43 AM - Aeson quoted Morrus in post Thirteenth Doctor - First Season - Thoughts? (SPOILERS WELCOME)
    Yeah it’s a lot less popular in the US. Not surprising I guess. 10m viewers in the U.K. is one in 6 people. The equivalent pro rated for population would be 50m viewers in the US. So per head it’s 25 times less popular in the US. It's growing in popularity. My 14 year old nephew has recently discovered it. Like many teens he knows almost nothing of things older than himself. So he was surprised when I told him about the older episodes. Many here have a hard time relating to something not American. Canada gets a pass because they sound like us. My mom has difficulty hearing so accents are enough for her to turn away from Doctor Who and other British shows. Others can't get past the cheesy FX of the 80s.

  • 11:44 PM - sheridanwilde quoted Morrus in post CABALLISTICS, INC.
    Rebellion sells them digitally, I think. They have their own app for comics. It’s an awesome setting. I want it too! Certainly is available (link) - though as Tordelback says, the series will be completed soon, so presumably an updated version of the complete Caballistics will also be forthcoming.
  • 03:07 PM - Brian I quoted Morrus in post Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD... counting down the days!
    I won't say I'm glad the Kickstarter is over, but it's nice to be able to relax for a couple of days! Ha! Fair. I meant the open funding period, but yea, still work to be done. I was nonetheless impressed at how quickly I was reading my books in PDF last night regardless. :) I do hope you enjoy the game! I dig in better with print copies, but so far, super-pleased. It definitely looks great, esp. compared to my old GW versions. ;) That I've run WOIN several times now gives me hope I'll actually get some sessions of this version of JD RPG in. :) Again, nicely done!
  • 12:38 PM - Mustrum_Ridcully quoted Morrus in post Thirteenth Doctor - First Season - Thoughts? (SPOILERS WELCOME)
    Depends how far back you go. Tom Baker had 14.5m with City of Death and 13.5m with Destiny of the Daleks. The highest sine the 2005 revival is Voyage of the Damned, which, like you say, was a Tennant (Xmas) episode with 13.3m viewers. He had a few 10m+ eps. This series is doing super well though! The Woman Who Fell To Earth had 10.9m, which is about twice what most of Capaldi's run did. For "first episode" ratings (comparing like for like), Whittaker is in the lead with 10.9, followed by Ecclestone with 10.81, then Tom Baker with 10.8. I am wondering - was Tom Baker already well-known before he became the Doctor? A(s a foreigner I really don't know much about UK actors in that time.) What about the others? I think Witthaker is actually the only one I knew before I watched them, because I saw the first season of Broadchurch. Does their popularity in any way influence those numbers?

  • 08:46 PM - Quickleaf quoted Morrus in post Adventures with extensive backstory
    I am rubbish at reading all the backstory in published adventures. It always feels like I'm revising for an exam. I"m reading one now. It's only 4 pages of backstory, but it is *dense* with names and places and history. It very much feels like I'm doing schoolwork! Especially since it's 4 page of backstory and then about 16 pages of adventure. It feels like a history book. Reached a sentence with 4 different place names and two different character names in it. I keep re-reading it in the hope I can parse it! Anybody else have this problem, or is it just me? Uff, that's pretty egregious. I could see 2 pages for a 100+ page adventure perhaps (e.g. Tomb of Annihilation has about 1-and-1/2 pages backstory). But 4 pages is just too much. That style of long-form adventure writing has been around since Dungeon magazine and possibly some of the older modules. I recently re-read "Umbra" (Dungeon #55), one of Chris Perkins earlier adventures that I adore, and there's about 3 pages of bac...
  • 04:18 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted Morrus in post [Poll] Vote For The Top 10 Horror RPGs!
    Ah Ravenloft. Though it contributed to the fracturing of the market base in 2e, I have fond memories of it. And the art was something else – Fabian’s pieces were so atmospheric. I do hope we see a return to Ravenloft, beyond just Barovia, one day. It’s games, not settings (which is why Ravenloft isn’t there either).
  • 12:50 PM - tjf quoted Morrus in post [Poll] Vote For The Top 10 Horror RPGs!
    Not to repeat myself from earlier, but is that a question or a statement? :) Added! Heh, it was a question. Thanks for adding! It's my personal favorite horror rpg.

    My sympathies. Pants are outer wear, cars don't have boots, and we gave up torches for flashlights when electricity became a thing. Though we do tend to use all the letters in a word. Oh! and pudding is a specific dish -- not a synonym for dessert.
