    The interpersonal interactions are some of the elements I enjoy most about the show. My wife has her Housewives and Teen Moms, I got my Rogue/Paladin and Druid making out. :) The PC-with-PC romance angles are definitely something that I can’t see happening in any of my games, but in my experience actors always seem to have a different mindset about chemistry that allows two friends to be able to...

    This may sound funny, but a Critical Role episode plays about like one of my groups’ normal D&D games - at times serious, mixed with a bit of humor, foul language, and totally inappropriate humor. :) The occasional epic role-playing moment manages to find its way in there as well.

    I would say that a minuscule chance exists for a PC to misread an NPC, even if they are telling the truth. It’s possible, especially if the NPC is normally a very smooth liar. My spot-ruling would be “if the person is familiar to you, it’s an automatic success. In any other circumstance and the NPC is trying to be actually truthful, it’s a DC 5 check.” And of course, the DC is secret (as well...

    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".

    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 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...

That'll be a shame, as I really like him. He's more Kirk than Kirk! What are your current prevailing theories? What's (who is) the Red Angel? Is Section 31 dead now? Their HQ is basically a tomb.

    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.

    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.

    I would not advise any new writer to accept less than 3c/w. And that’s really basement rate pay. Accepting less than that normalises it. Editing is a separate job, paid similarly per word. And yes, payment upon acceptance is appropriate. Good call on that! :)

    After a long illness, Larry DiTillio passed on March 16th at the age of 76. There's a good chance that DiTillio was a part of your childhood or your later geeky years and not even know it. While gamers will remember him as the writer for the Origins award-winning Masks of Nyarlathotep or T&T's The Isle of Darksmoke, he also wrote for Fat Albert, two He-Man shows, She-Ra (which he created), Beast...

    Well that’s for you to decide. I can tell you what I did — I supported the d20 STL and the GSL for about 15 years give or take, but I went with the plain OGL this time around. Third time lucky. But what’s right for me isn’t necessarily what’s right for anybody else. Also, I use tools like Kickstarter and Patreon.

    No, I think there are some techniques and acting practices that these professionals have and use that do not exist at most tables. Saying there's no fundamental difference here is kind of like saying that there's no fundamental difference between what comes out of a good restaurant kitchen, and what comes out of the kitchen of a bachelor grad student.

    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...

    There is a WotC wpn streaming event that day. Presumably for magic. But I've seen others say to tune in for dnd.

  • 06:27 PM - Farrem mentioned Morrus in post Brazilian D&D Translators Fall Out Over Translation Rights
    @kenmarable, you got the general idea. @Morrus it's not a cancelation at will, in brazilian law you can cancel a contrat if one of the parts is misrepresenting themselves (an that is the case, all the plans and all the documents that Fire on Board presented to get the contract included assets from all the other companies). Seriously look at the medium article: More damning yet is an English-language document in which the four FMR members make a joint presentation of their credentials for the licence. “We present to Hasbro–Wizards of the Coast the Companies that will be involved in the licensing partnership,” it reads." (https://medium.com/@t.mcgrenery/why-brazilians-are-boycotting-dungeons-dragons-3fa37ce4d8a3#.6wi85o6fb) And right after this they just tell that the other companies withdrawn? The problem if WotC or GF9 do not intervene is that this is going to court, the judge will stop any publishing until the judgement (and that alone may take years, maybe 2 to 5 years). Not only this, but the judge will probably bring GF9...

  • 04:51 PM - Lylandra mentioned Morrus in post A War of the Burning Sky Wiki
    Hey you all, I've recently had a short conversation with @Morrus about the possibility of creating an easily visible resource page/thread/whateverfor additional content for both WotBS and Zeitgeist where we all could collect information old and new that has accumulated in these forums over the years. Morrus' suggestion was to create a wiki page for each AP where every registered user could update and add stuff (plus anyone could then remove dead links). So, I've taken some time and started the War of the Burning Sky Resource Collection in the wiki area. As you can see, the page is far from finished, so I'd invite all of you who are interested in WotBS and/or have something to share that you've either created yourself or found in the forums and deem useful to visit the wiki page and contribute! As a side note: I know at least one person who would be more than happy to have a corresponding reource collection for Zeitgeist. However, I am a player in our Zeitgeist campaign and don't want to spoiler myself by digging for resource material as we're cur...

    Supposedly one can buy "badges" here with them. Hit the FAQ in the menu atop any page. If Morrus creates a "Gold Coin" badge, I hereby pledge I will buy more Gold Coins.
  • 04:16 AM - Rolenet mentioned Morrus in post Yet another Solos fix: "Solo actions"
    GURPS and d20 are both core systems You'd think. GURPS d20 is a detailed simulation of Forum Wars pertaining to the d20 Modern and Star Wars d20, as well as the unpublished Vampire d20 and FATE d20. You can play any of several archetypes such as The Clicktroll; the SJG Fanboy, and customize them with Advantages. Included is a conversion table to use 3d6 as a d20. ...nope, I lied, for some reason I have 11 of them. Weird. See? See? Here's my theory. Morrus is actually a collective of South-Asian barely-paid workers that are producing a new kind of virtual currency in shady underground factories. Just check it out; he, sorry they, have five thousand units. FIVE THOUSAND. You can paypal him for more. But you can't cash out. See? They're.. they're mining gold! Virtual fantasy gold! Laugh Morrus! But I have seen through your scheme! You can have my XP, but you won't get my Gold Pieces!
  • 03:47 AM - Rolenet mentioned Morrus in post Yet another Solos fix: "Solo actions"
    No idea about 'Coins' So you see, I don't know, Tony Vargas's been there for 14 1/2 years. He posted 9,316 times. He could have written Games of Thrones AND the unpublished GURPS d20 in that span. There barely was any Internet back in 2002 in Edenvale (this is right near the river Cionthar, Western Heartlands). ENWorld ran on Gopher. But still, he doesn't know about Gold Coins. That tells us something about this feature. But seriously, does someone knows what they're for? SUMMON Morrus?
  • 12:27 AM - Rolenet mentioned Morrus in post D&D Pronunciation Guide
    Morrus, you might have exercised your English in RPG books when you were young. I *learned* English that way. Actually, reading the Car Wars Vehicule Guide 1. So by the time I was twelve, I had an unequaled command of vocabulary pertaining to cars parts, electric engines, and vehicular weaponry. But little grammar. My teachers weren't impressed. However it did help few years later when I passed an oral exam which involved describing a figure. It was a native trapper. I could pull out terms such as "top hat", "fur vest", "leather belt", "musket", "powder horn"... thanks to RPG gear lists... I remember we really botched English D&D terms pronunciation with our French accent. We rolled "funballs" on 1s, played in the "Forgotten Releems", and don't get me started on getting percentile "strengt", "strengf", or "strenx".

  • 03:49 PM - Imaro mentioned Morrus in post 5e Warlord Demand Poll
    Morrus said nothing of other classes except for rangers. And I seem to recall that part of the reason for the creation of the sub-forum was not just a matter of their number but also as a way to contain the vitriol of the discussion surrounding the Warlord. People don't have to defend the ranger's right to exist as a class. So are we going to go down the list of every class? Seriously? I think if there was a class that rivaled the warlord in thread count he would have mentioned it... The fact that the number of threads for warlords could at one point fill its own subforum speaks volumes but ok, here we go again... Hey @Morrus do you have any insight into whether the psionic class threads have been as prolific as the warlord threads before Mystics were announced? Also, I'm sure a new class for comparison will arise once we get the answer for psionics...

  • 01:04 AM - GlassJaw quoted Morrus in post Humans, Fighters, and Life Domain Most Popular On D&D Beyond
    Is there a reason you said that? Of course there's a reason! A rather crass way to say that some of the things I find least interesting are the most popular. Normal Human Fighter Champion? Bah humbug! I do find it interesting though the class distribution is fairly even (after Fighter and Rogue) but the races are much less so. Dwarves, gnomes, and halflings don't seem to be that popular and elves only slightly more so.
  • 12:53 AM - Jay Verkuilen quoted Morrus in post Humans, Fighters, and Life Domain Most Popular On D&D Beyond
    No, 10.2% of subclasses are life clerics. They're are useful as much use you can make of them. Which I assume is zero. But they can be interesting for discussion's sake. I think what "useless" meant was "miscalculated." As in "how is it that the subclass percentage exceeds that of the base class given that all life clerics are, necessarily, clerics?" That's really, really... weird. Part of it might be due to the fact that archetype is only chosen at particular levels that vary for the class in question. Clerics choose that at 1st level while many others don't choose until 3rd level. Also the class breakdowns are pretty much guaranteed to have multiple counting due to multiclass characters. So, yeah, these data are misleading as presented, or at least confusing.
  • 12:42 AM - Hussar quoted Morrus in post Generation Ships--- Can we build one now?
    They continue to update them, just like how we don’t read 1066 manuals for steelmaking. Why wouldn’t they? Does that include rewriting the entire operating system for every single automated or computer controlled element of the ship? Flawlessly every time so that not only can people still understand it, but, it also functions without error? How's your Cobol these days? Or your Fortran?

Still, even with the Super Bowl, I have no idea why the skipped a week. Especially during February, which is a sweeps month.

    It may have started like that 10 years ago, but there are tons of people who play PF these days who have never played D&D 3.x. Good point! But what if PF2E has the same impact on PF1E players that D&D4E had on D&D3.xE players?
  • 07:57 PM - D351 quoted Morrus in post New Member Needs Quick Assistance!
    It is. (This is also a thread from 2017, BTW). Unfortunately, this was the first thread I found on the subject. 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 was assuming that there was something wrong with my file.

    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.

    What should be the minimum age limit on playing D&D? I have played to 5 year regularly. We kept him to fighters. I allowed the 3 year old to roll dice against mommy and daddy. This was letting the toddler play with us and teaching counting.

    What should be the minimum age limit on playing D&D? Goes up every year.

    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.

    I"m seeing some in the low-mid hundreds, but not that much. Not sure on how well kept they are. Are those actual first prints? Later printings sell for much lower prices. I realize that I might have misunderstood your post and you were referring in general to OD&D sets and not actual first printings.
  • 07:40 PM - Nikosandros quoted Morrus in post $800 on Ebay?! What in the hell is going on with the limited edition Volo's Guide to Monsters?
    It’s quite astonishing. Even super rare original 1974 editions of the first ever printed D&D don’t go for $800. Actually, a near mint D&D set from '74 goes for over $9000...
