    I don't know what "traditional Star Trek" is? every show has bene very different. I love Discovery, and my favourite Star Trek is the TOS movies II-IV trilogy, if that helps. The main problem with the show is avoiding the hatewatchers.

    “Roll-play versus Role-play” has always been around - this is maybe the seventh long-running thread I can remember on these forums on the topic? I feel like it’s one of those kinds of topics that absolutely NEED to get discussed if ANY group is gathering for the first time, along with things like “house rules” and “sensitive subject matter/X Cards.” Both groups I game in enjoy a fairly large...

    It’s not a question of just flipping a switch. PoD needs different files to the onscreen PDF. It’s actually quite a bit of extra work and reformatting, followed by an approval process at DTFPG’s end, and then ordering and paying for a proof. If they plan to change it at all, they’d have to do that all over again each time.

    There was a time, way back when, that the group I played with did declarations. But, that was back in 1e, and quite frankly, too many times for both PC and NPC that led to nonsensical dud actions. Most games these days don't have declaration like that as part of their design these days.

    If you publish on DMsG, you grant a perpetual license to others, including WotC, to use your work. Artwork, I believe, is excepted. While this doesn’t transfer the copyright, you are also prevented from publishing the work elsewhere. In addition, you pay 50% royalties. In exchange, you get access to some of WotC’s settings and other IP, including art assets. If you want to publish in the...

    The GM should always be free to say that something doesn’t apply. That said, think of it like comic books - people die all the time only to come back later. The only limit is a (semi) plausible reason. For the other question, it’s not really the number of exploits which makes something powerful. It how they combine. A thousand abilities gives a PC lots of versatility throughout any encounters...

    You could easily argue the opposite, that you shouldn’t strengthen the spell because of the wording. Others have noted that the core of the spell seems to be “losing a turn”. Anything that goes beyond that should be carefully considered, especially because the spell does have some “harm protection” built in

    We all assume that if they publish a game, they will shift their show to *use* the game. D&D players will no longer have a particular reason to take in their show, and the show won't be an advertisement for D&D. Which means effectively breaking the mutual-marketing relationship between them. That's what would get "blown up". The real question isn't whether they can publish a game. The...

    You have an issue trying to justify it being a long and arduous overland journey, though, especially with an ocean in the way. Why don't they get on an eagle jet plane and just fly there? You may want the thematic element that carrying The One Thing is bad for you. A radioactive power cell, maybe? Then read a bunch of Captain America comics, where the Red Skull is trying to bring...

    Well, that’s branding, isn’t it? People would say “I’m playing Critical Role tonight!” and folks would know what that means. Building a brand is hard, but if anybody in the TRPG space, CR would have the best shot at it.

    Sure. New ventures entail risk. An RPG rulebook isn’t *that* much of a risk, though. Especially if it was a Kickstarter stretch goal. Much easier to produce than an animated show!

    I think it’s interesting that, give the sheer size of CR fandom, they could possibly consider launching their own Critical Role RPG which could rival D&D. Even if it didn’t, it would probably be the second biggest RPG in the world.

  • 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).

    So, realllyyy strange issue. I am having trouble with the ENWorld app and well, my identity. I have started getting notifications to my iPad as if I was Morrus. Yah, you read that right. I keep getting multiple "you maxed out your attempts at signing in" notifications to my email address when I should just be signed in to the app and am not attempting to sign in at all. 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.

I'm also just now noticing that this thread was originally posted in the wrong area. Sorry about all that. But it's mentioned on the "Edit Profile Cover" page? Not to be rude, but where? I tried multiple times to upload an image before I decided to search the forums. All I'm seeing on that page is a description of what a cover photo is and an explanation of how to upload one with the size limitations listed. Then, on failure, it says "Unable to save image".

    I find I spend a lot of time debuting stuff from eBay I used to own and regret letting go. I'm a bit of a pack-rat in general, but I have made a couple of small culls to my collection. Mostly the 3E core rulebooks and some 3rd party books I bought as part of the d20 glut that turned out to be very average books. I'm thinking about culling back some of my 3.5E collection as I've got 40 WotC rules supplements and another 10 WotC adventures, but I just can't seem to pull the trigger, despite having played 5E exclusively for about 3 years now. I've even decided what the first 3-5 books would be that I would cull. I think it's the potential regret that's holding me back.

    What should be the minimum age limit on playing D&D?Well, according to WotC, it's 12, but I let my oldest daughter start playing when she was 11. But I think you misunderstand me: I'm not saying people *shouldn't* livestream games or watch other people do so. I'm just saying it's not for me. That said, since it seems like every man and his dog has a livestream D&D game now, it's hard to avoid them. The official D&D Facebook page mostly just posts ads for all the livestream games these days. The more in my face it gets, the less I want to have anything to do with it. But that's all on me. I'm not out to ruin anyone else's fun. It would appear that my attempt to poke fun at myself failed. I shall see myself out.

    Those live streamed games are responsible for selling a lot of those printed books. The live-streaming is a bottom-up phenomenon: WotC is responding to what the market is demanding and producing. I’m well aware of that, thank you. Doesn’t make them any more appealing to me, though. I’m just having to accept that I’ve become an old grognard who doesn’t like all these uppity kids taking over his hobby.

What I think Morrus is trying to diplomatically indicate is that CR wasn't nominated in the public nomination stage, and thus wasn't eligible for any awards. Even if that's not what Morrus was trying to say, I'm pretty sure I saw in a different thread that the above was the case. :) Edited to add: I absolutely LOVE that ENWorld did this. I have been checking out podcasts since the nomination thread started and have found some excellent ones. Even in this thread I'm already looking at the Eberron podcast referred to above. Thank you ENWorld!
  • 10:12 AM - Yunru quoted Morrus in post Used to be companies loved free publicity. Not Velcro.
    You know I didn't actually mean that bit about small dogs in China, right? :)Of course not! How would they get internet?
  • 01:11 AM - Mage of Spellford quoted Morrus in post Star Trek Discovery not getting any better I fear.
    Hi Morris, My mistake, somehow I clicked the wiki checkbox. It's fixed. Thanks. Why is this set as a wiki thread? Mage of Spellford, that means anybody can edit your original post. Did you intend to do that?
  • 01:04 AM - Hussar quoted Morrus in post Dragon Reflections #19 – Battle of the Cons
    You could click trough to MT Black’s articles via his profile. Thanks. I never would have thought to look there. That's excellent.
