    We don't see enough to know if his senses engaged. And, Peter went to ash in the Big Snap too. If Peter is back, there's no known reason for Fury to not be back. Yes, it could be Mysterio makes illusions of villains, and then fights the illusions. Or, it is possible that the Elementals and Mysterio are all bad, but after the same thing - in the comics the Elementals were trying to...

    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.

    I understand. One can naively think, 'Well I can use any frame of reference I want. I could use Twin A's frame, or Twin B's frame. Each can think the other is moving." That's why I introduce a frame that is not dependent on the Twins, and measure *both* of them relative to that. In my example, the reference frame in which Earth is at rest*. It happens that one of my Twins stays at rest...

    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.

    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...

    Sure. Rub it in, whydon'tcha. :7 I love Trek, dearly. Up until ST:Disco I have watched every episode of live-action trek ever produced. 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...

  • 01:47 AM - thorgrit mentioned Morrus in post Paizo Announces Pathfinder 2nd Edition!
    I'm interested, but cautiously optimistic. For my own purposes, I looked forward to Starfinder but it turned out to be too complicated for me to figure out character creation just reading the book. I remember when they came out with Unchained, and I was wondering if they'd use that to springboard off a new revised PF.5 or something, bundling the idea of traits and backgrounds and things all in together on a new core rulebook. Can do nothing but wait and see. I'm super pessimistic about any conversion guidelines that promise more than "just remake characters from the ground up" and "you can use old published adventures but ignore all the stats and use the new stats instead". Morrus: the link "Paizo has just announced" at the beginning appears to only point to the Paizo blog root, which I'm assuming will change over time. http://paizo.com/community/blog/v5748dyo5lkl9?First-Look-at-the-Pathfinder-Playtest is the link to the specific announcement post.

  • 04:30 PM - DMMike mentioned Morrus in post Make Up a Goblin Fact
    Shouldn't this be a Wiki post? Would make it a whole lot easier to read previous facts. And number them. Like it says in the title. Making a table of random goblin traits to roll on so they're not all generic cannon fodder. Why should they be generic? Now dwarfs, they're all the same if you ask me. 63 (assuming the last numbered ones, though incorrect, actually deserved to be numbered): If you hit a goblin on the head hard enough, and roll a 1, it sinks into the ground and sprouts up from the ground at full hit points, just two feet away. Edit: Ah, Threaded Mode. Nice touch, Morrus. Any chance we could get some Word Wrap in there, and a resizable window?

  • 12:26 AM - Eltab mentioned Morrus in post 5e EPIC MONSTER UPDATES
    Is there a post number limit? @Morrus can answer this definitively, if anybody can (and hopefully I just drew his attention to your question). I don't block anybody - no idea if anybody else blocks me - and the post count is 1019 at this time (51 pages as I have the format settings). I don't see any problems here yet. HOWEVER, I've seen other threads break down if they have many large posts in them. Some of the CharOp threads found out the hard way that there IS a "max post length" limit; this may eventually come back to bite your first page. I've only perused the thread here and there, but this sounds like awesome work. For a homebrew project, I'm going to have to compare your version of the Out of the Abyss demon lords to the "by-the-book" published versions. My BBEG is an FR-specific demon lord, and I want the fight against him to feel like the PCs really have saved the world from a Great Evil.

  • 11:25 AM - CubicsRube mentioned Morrus in post Single mechanics from an RPG you love
    Wow. Theres a lot of ideas i like on an individual scale, but if i ever made them into a single system it'd be a frakenstein! I love adv/disad in 5e. Its easily my favourite thing in 5e for the same reason as Morrus above outlined. I love bennies. It makes heroes seem truly heroic to me and it allows them to turn the tide of fate to their favour. Im currently digging fria ligans core mechanics of the myz rules. Essentially, roll a 6 and its a success. Roll more 6es and you can use them to buy effects. Simple and elegant. I adore shadow of the demon lords spell schools and modular classess. In fact next campaign i want to run is curse of strahd converted to that system. I also enjoy unknown armies 3e shock gauges and trauma rules. I think they are the most realistic and interesting trauma and insanity rules in an rpg period. Dungeon worlds fronts are great for behind the scene gming. Shadowruns magic as a skill system woth their risk/reward on castuming at high power levels is the most magicy feeling system i think ivve played in. I'm sure theres more, but thats what i can remember at the moment!

  • 07:07 PM - DM Dave1 mentioned Morrus in post Do you use skill challenges?
    I like how this guy in the link below (I feel like he’s familiar... like he’s up to something these days... something big) has ported skill challenges into 5e. I’ve already incorporated a few of my own design into our current campaign and they’ve gone well. I like Morrus’s suggestion not to announce “now it's time for a skill challenge!” to the players. Seems pretty obvious, but pretty sure I did just that... so could have gone even better! Lol https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GvOeqDpkBm8

  • 05:25 AM - RangerWickett mentioned Morrus in post Starting Adventure 5.
    Erg. I haven't read the details of that for years. Hm. PbPs take forever usually. So I'd either just lay it out as a background thing, or make it ultra simplified. Morrus, I don't recall James's screen name to ping him, but maybe he could use this as a baseline for converting this scene in the 5e version, which should probably be more rules-lite. To take down Kell, the Flint Police will be going on numerous missions over the next few days. {Brief overview of their missions.} You're coordinating them, though, so together the team needs to accomplish the following five tasks. For any of these tasks, you can just make a skill check to represent general planning time, or we can roleplay a bit if you want to do something hands-on, or if you have a clever idea you want to pitch. You might call a favor in instead and have someone else make the check on your behalf. You can split the tasks up however you like, but it takes 4 hours for a PC to make each of these skill checks, so you probably want to divide them among the party. The more tasks you succeed at, the better the task force is at taking down Kell's crime syndicate. The DCs are secret. Whenever y...

  • 11:09 PM - hbarsquared mentioned Morrus in post Best way to make a contribution?
    I've been meaning to donate and help support ENWorld for a long time, but I'm not exactly sure the best way to go about it. I contributed when ENWorld went completely down several years ago, and I guess I never set up my ongoing contribution at that point. So, Morrus, what do you prefer? Through EN5ider or Trailseeker Patreons? Or the "ENWorld" Patreon I see on the main page? Or is the "subscription" method in account settings still the most viable way to do it? What does everyone else do?

  • 04:26 PM - DEFCON 1 mentioned Morrus in post [UPDATED] DM's Guild No Longer Allows Creator Logos On Product Covers
    The Guild is great for people doing book design as a hobby. But asking them to compete with people doing RPG book design as a living or as a business is problematic. The alternative to the DMsGuild isn't DriveThru or Kickstarter. It's people's fan blogs. It's Reddit. It's Pintrest. It's zero money. After all, 5e and the OGL was around for eighteen months before the Guild but very few people took the plunge to self publishing on DriveThru or Kickstarter. But isn't that the point? That the DMs Guild is meant to be a place for hobbyists to make a little bit of money for products they would have made anyway, but NOT a place for actual design businesses to peddle their wares? For actual for-profit design businesses they should be using things like the OGL, Kickstarter, and Patreon (like Morrus does) so that they have more control of how and what they produce for their business? Including things like branding, logos, original art, cartography, what percentage of the money they bring in and the like? I mean I can get that there's no real "intermediate" step between DMs Guild, and Kickstarter/OGL. A hobbyist gets the experience of trying publish using DMs Guild and tries to build a name for themselves... but the jump to then trying to run a Kickstarter in order to actually become a for-profit design house is a big one. There's no place in the middle where "the best of the best" can go to receive the same amount of viewership that DMs Guild grants them, while not needing as many up-front "fans" or name-recognition in order to successfully pull off an OGL/KS. So anything that keeps DMs Guild itself from becoming a more intermediate step for those writers is saddening and I can understand the frustration. But I don't think that's really what DMs Guild was ever meant to be ...

  • 06:49 PM - MNblockhead quoted Morrus in post Review Dragon Heist, Mad Mage, and Ravnica!
    Doesn't really matter, though, does it? We're not trying to represent anybody, we're just a happy little niche online community talking amongst itself. It matters if you are trying to gauge interest in and success of a product. Which is what Jester was getting at. But, I'm happy to stay here conversing with my 300,000 closest friends. :-) Also, Discord drives me nuts. I've forced myself to use it a few times because some Kickstarter creators have the best fan support on that site and some on-line games require its use. But it is just awful for having conversations over time and mining prior conversations for information. Same with Twitter. Forums like this will continue to play a role for those who want to engage in more substantive online conversations. Now, get off my lawn. Wait, sorry Morrus, this is your lawn.

  • 05:07 PM - Umbran quoted Morrus in post Do you believe we are alone in the universe?
    Climate change, AI, more advanced weapons of mass destruction... our intelligence could prove to be the exact opposite of a survival trait. With respect, the thing that is currently endangering us is not our intelligence, but our lack thereof. Our current predicament is based in emotional responses, not reasoned and intelligent responses.
  • 03:16 PM - Maxperson quoted Morrus in post Do you believe we are alone in the universe?
    That’s a possibility, but it’s not assured. *shrug* None of us know. We’re all just offering at-best semi-informed guesses. Climate change, AI, more advanced weapons of mass destruction... our intelligence could prove to be the exact opposite of a survival trait. It might even be the answer to Fermi’s Paradox. I agree. On the other hand, scientific advances might enable us to scrub the pollutants out of the atmosphere in 10 or 20 years. Science is like a snowball rolling downhill. It keeps progressing bigger and faster. Maybe it smashes us. Maybe it smashes our problems. As you say, none of us know.
  • 02:33 PM - Maxperson quoted Morrus in post Do you believe we are alone in the universe?
    Briefly. The cockroaches will outlast us when our “survival” trait kills us. That's a possibility, but it's not assured. I can tell you this, though. Intelligence might get us off our plane in the future to somewhere else or multiple somewhere elses, where we can survive, enabling us to survive the expansion of the sun, planet killing asteroids, comets, etc. Cockroaches and every other non-intelligent species will all ultimately die when the planet does.
  • 04:55 AM - Jester David quoted Morrus in post Thirteenth Doctor - First Season - Thoughts? (SPOILERS WELCOME)
    I don't think so. Not in the way that Tennant and Smith did. I’d disagree. The 3rd and 6th Doctors were all about the bombast and claiming authority in the situation. But most of the Doctors are a little more subtle. The 13th still reminds most of the 5th, who was the more soft spoken figure. Or the 7th when he’s being disarmingly friendly. But recent Doctors have turned it up a bit more as it acknowledges the Doctor’s reputation and impact. When I saw the Capaldi run I couldn't help but analyze everything that happened. But watching the new season I've been doing that less and less. And that's a good thing. I've just been enjoying the show. I like Capaldi, but it really wasn't easy viewing. Whittaker is fun. Modern Who is very much like a roller coaster. It works best when you sit back and just enjoy the thrill ride. But it can take a long time to make a fairly simple journey.

    Seems a lot of people agree that Attack of the Clones is the worst. So much so that they keep calling it The Clone Wars instead! I would correct it in my post, but frankly I don't give a damn. That movie does not deserve any more attention from me.

    I must've missed that long standing joke! Good one... You're telling me you never heard anything along the lines of, "How many Bothans died, tho?" in reference to espeionage, sabotage, etc, when discussing Star Wars media (and sometimes when discussing non SW media) from games to EU books? Really? That's pretty weird to me, since I've been hearing/seeing those jokes in pretty much every venue, online or off, I've ever discussed Star Wars or general nerd stuff, my entire life.

    He was originally dead in the TIE fighter crash. They brought him back as a late script change during filming. I figured as much. That movie really feels like they had a completely different second half in mind when they filmed the first half.

    She’s more old school. The bombastic superhero Doctor of authority is a more recent creation. Pertwee channeled bombast quite well.

    I promoted it to an article, as it was a cool bit of news. Unfortunately, somehow all the comments disappeared... sorry about that! No problem. :)
  • 05:23 PM - doctorbadwolf quoted Morrus in post Rate the Star Wars Movies
    Because they aren't paying attention. Or because the very long standing joke is that all espionage jobs in the SW Galaxy involve Bothans?
  • 03:23 PM - Maxperson quoted Morrus in post Do you believe we are alone in the universe?
    If that were true there would be plenty more intelligent species on Earth. The truth is, intelligence is definitely not needed for survival. There are species on this planet which predate us and will likely outlast us. When it comes to evolutionary survivability, we are not the top of the pyramid. If it wasn't true, we wouldn't have intelligence. Traits are selected for survival and intelligence aids in that. It also doesn't have to be the absolute best survival trait in order to be a survival trait. Intelligence also doesn't have to work in order to be a superior trait. Underdogs win all the time. The species you suggest will survive us do not have a chance at diverting an asteroid that will destroy them, or even detecting it in the first place. We do, because intelligence. We may not succeed, but we have that chance to survive because of our brains. Intelligence being a survival trait is all over the place. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-scientific-fundament...

    Seems a lot of people agree that Attack of the Clones is the worst. So much so that they keep calling it The Clone Wars instead! Derp to many clones. We have Attack of the clones, The Clone Wars, Clone Wars, and The Clone Wars (animated). Apparently the big problem with The Last Jedi was there was no overall plan for episodes VII-IX so the director was allowed to more or less do whatever he wanted and IMHO did a poor job on following up on some of the plot hooks of the TFA. There was a lot of speculation about Snoke for example, but nope they Boba Fett'ed him. TFA was really good, not exactly original though. And they killed off Luke to early (should have been episode IX if at all), and now with Carrie's death all of the OT main characters/actors are dead. And theres still some lingering bad will online over burning the old legends stuff and then reintroducing it but worse (Thrawn for example). I got a buzz at the theatre from Rogue One/TFA and after TLJ it kinda felt like 1999 again w...

    I'm not thinking dogs and monkeys, though - I'm thinking cockroaches and jellyfish. Crocodiles, although they have changed, have been around for about 85M years. Lice, some crabs, and a ton of sea-creatures. Heck, there's a reasonable possibility is that it's our intelligence which will wipe us out, and leave us with a pretty short footprint compared to many unintelligent species, making intelligence a misstep in the evolutionary chain, not the apex of it. This. We can adapt to the environment though so short of poisoning the atmosphere or the ocean we on't wipe ourselves out even if global warming go up by 2 or 3 degrees. I'm not sure we even have enough nukes to cause an extinction level event. That being said if we have 10 billion+ people and the resources to support 2 billion its fairly obvious what will happen. We won't sent colonists to Mars, bullets are much cheaper. Also gonna suck for anyone who is in semi tropical or warmer areas of the Earth.
