    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...

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.

    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.

  • 06:28 PM - Matrix Sorcica mentioned Morrus in post Paizo New Roundup With Extra Ultimate Wilderness
    They've all been like this. They are like press releases, but Fan made, and for fans of the system. It is news about what is available - not a review or critique. Sorta like cheer leading. I don't personally play Pathfinder, or own any Paizo products (not quite true I did buy a PDF of one of the bestiarys - I just can't help myself), but I find myself reading these news updates anyway. Ah, makes a lot more sense. So I was obviously too fast on the trigger. Thanks for clarifying. Morrus: see, not so hard.

  • 03:18 PM - lowkey13 mentioned Morrus in post What do you specifically want out of reviewers?
    I think that Morrus in his last post listed some good reasons people read reviews. But as he alluded to in his comment regarding technical devices, people also read reviews differently depending on the type of thing being reviewed as well as the source of the review. For example, I enjoy reading literary and film criticism (reviews) in some sources even of books or movies I will never watch, because those can be an art form in and of themselves. I read it not for the interest in the subject, necessarily (although that might come) but for the skills of the writer/reviewer/critic. Another type of review is one that focuses on "technical" merit. This is best when looking at consumer products, technical products, automobiles, etc. How much memory does it have? How much horsepower? Does it get the same gas mileage as advertised? What is the fit & finish of the reviewed product? And so on. As a general rule, however, I have reached the age when I look for reviews/criticism in the following circumstanc...

  • 01:28 AM - RangerWickett mentioned Morrus in post Sell Me On WotBS / Zeitgeist
    ...the adventure that literally involves the PCs on a train. So, well, that's my horn. Toot toot. If you want to get a fuller sense of the campaign, there are a lot of GMs who post on the E.N. Publishing forum about their campaigns. To MoutonRustique's comment, I still did all the conversions to 4e on the adventures that were written for Pathfinder. I love that 4e lets you pace fights well and create all sorts of brief threats that need to be dealt with, as opposed to 3e/PF's style of "did you save? you're totally fine with no narrative effect at all. did you fail? you may as well take a nap." (I wish 4e had not had the odd math where everything scaled so obviously for the good guys and bad guys, and I wish there hadn't been so many niche powers, feats, and magic items that clogged up the character builder. But you could run the game with just the physical books and you wouldn't be overwhelmed with options.) The best suggestion I got for ZEITGEIST encounter design came from Morrus, who insisted every power of every enemy have a short sensory description. That led to me, later in the campaign, using that description section to work in dialogue that enemies might say during the fight, to give the fights more personality. I found that often when I converted a monster from PF to 4e, I'd add some more tricks or narrative beats to its attacks, and then go back and add those to the PF version too so the Pathfinder players wouldn't miss out. Like in adventure 5, one encounter has some gremlins, which in PF just make you roll twice and take the worse result. In the 4e version, I instead tweaked the mechanic so they specifically messed with guns - if you tried to shoot at them, the gun would click but not fire, but if you stayed still and kept aiming until the start of your next turn, it would fire then. If you moved before then, the gun would go off as soon as it wasn't aligned with the gremlin. I put that same schtick into the PF version, even though it sort of goes ...

  • 12:24 AM - Tony Vargas mentioned Morrus in post Toward a Theory of 6th Edition
    ... to how every Warlock receives a Book of Shadows/Pact Weapon/Improved familiar at 3rd level. Not at a point where it would be most logical given their their relationship with their patron, but at level 3. The Rogue deals extra damage when they catch the enemy unawares or flank them to a degree no other class can. These characters are not functioning in accordance with the law that every Fighter gets followers. that every Warlock gets a pact gift, or Rogues are unique in getting a bonus to damage from an ambush regardless of how much sense it does or doesn't make. The They represent any number of events, tropes, including fate, luck, and plot contrivances that would result in the desired effect. Basically, it's a mechanic that can actually impact part of the game's narrative. They haven't been especially common in D&D as compared to many other RPGs, but they've pretty much always been there in one form or another. Hit points & saving throws are another example, and, as Morrus points out, the debates those spawned go way back (though with the reverse of the emphasis you typically get, today), not just to the early days of these forums and to UseNet and BBSs and Out on a Limb, but, apparently, to people just harassing EGG about it enough that he wrote a whole treatise on the topic of hps in the 1e DMG. ;)

  • 11:49 PM - Hussar mentioned Morrus in post Discovery Trailer
    I'm not entirely sure I liked the 3rd ep. Some good, bad and very bad. The Good: Yup, I agree with Morrus, this show is freaking GORGEOUS. And, it's probably the hardest SF version of Trek to date. I kinda like that they're giving it a more hard SF look. Yup, the sets are too damn dark. Grr. Hopefully that will shift later on. Michael is a badass. I do love the scene where she kicks the crap out of the convicts. Although, that being said, she's appearing to be a LOT more emotional and a lot less Vulcan in this episode. Guess it makes sense. Just a big shift in how I saw the character. The interplay between Saru and Michael. That's a great dynamic. You can tell Saru truly respects Michael but, also doesn't trust her and blames her for the death of the Captain. I realy look forward to seeing how this plays out. "Did he just shush us?" is probably the best line I've heard in a long, long time. The Bad: Ok, why did we have the prison transport scene? Three throwaway characters for Michael to put the slippers to? Curly Haired Barklay - come on. Massive alle...

  • 06:34 PM - Leatherhead mentioned Morrus in post Does a D&D Videogame have to be turn-based?
    I am also playing Divinity 2 at the moment, it's rather fun. But if you are interested in a totally different kind of RPG that also does turn based combat extremely well: Consider playing the Mario & Luigi rpg games. In particular, the "action command" system is something worth poaching. I have also heard good things about Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, of all things (which itself borrows heavily from the xcom series, a turn based tactical game). Also Morrus The turns were intended to be "behind the scenes" but there was a setting you could change to make the game auto-pause.

    I'd talked with Morrus a few times about creating a map pack zip file with the highest resolution files of all the maps and selling it for a couple bucks on RPGNow, but we designed the maps to be in a book, not printed at scale for tabletop play. I'm not sure it'd be worth the hassle. Do you have a map in mind in particular?

  • 06:19 AM - Satyrn mentioned Morrus in post Firearms help needed please
    If you're going to make firearms deal the same damage as archaic weapons, why even have firearms at all? That kind of defeats the point doesn't it? Aye. That's rather the heart of my question. If his players are cool with a rifle being as deadly as a sword, as Morrus seems to suggest he would be, then making them equal would work. But if it rubs them wrong, as it does you, then it would be a poor fix. Akthough, in thinking of a reply to your question, I've had another thought, an addition to my earlier suggestion. What I suggest the OP do is this: Have rifles deal longbow damage and pistols deal shortbow damage, as I already said, and then lower the damage on all archaic weapons by a die size. Call the whole thing a new game, 5e Modern, and pretend this is the way the game universe always was - meant to model action movies and cop shows where the protagonists are shot at constantly and survive the most ludicrous barrages of gunfire, from gattling guns, helicopters and all manner of that sort.

    I was under the impression that AD&D numbers in the heyday of the 80's rpg craze were in the low millions, but maybe that was over the whole life of 1e. Or maybe, I'm just pulling those numbers out of my hat. As Morrus says, it was very possibly in that range. But TSR was notoriously bad with its figures, and so it's hard to say. Very likely it's still below the peak of 1984, but it's close enough that in a year or two it could pass 1e...

    Morrus, does Trailseeker include the compilations of the ZEITGEIST adventures? I never thought to check since I wasn't handling that subscription. But sadly no, we never had a specific list of changes between individual adventures and the hardcovers. Most of the changes were minor, and none happen after adventure 6, I think.

  • 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.

  • 11:22 PM - FrogReaver quoted Morrus in post Who's Multiclassing With Who? More D&D Beyond Stats!
    ...The fact that you can take more than just two classes means that these won't add up to exactly 100%... Morrus, I know you are probably just the messenger, but this bit of the first post is inaccurate. Even if they restricted their data to "Active Characters with exactly 2 classes" they would still have a class graph showing over 100%. In fact in that situation it would show exactly 200%. So the reason about having more than 2 classes is incorrect, it's because they are showing a population that accounts for each character once but showing a breakdown that has each character accounted for more than once. An interesting observation: Their chart for level 2+ characters adds up very closely to 200% without Druid being shown. With him added in it's likely just a little over 200%. What this tells us is that very few characters in that population of level 2+ characters have more than 2 classes.

    That certainly wasn’t my takeaway from what you were saying! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll see if I can figure out what’s wrong. All right! I'm glad I brought it up. In my experience, 50% of conflicts are nothing more than miscommunication. Who's fault was it? Does it matter? Not at all, what matters is that we solve the problem! I'm pretty sure you're operating in good faith here :)
  • 08:35 PM - Ancalagon quoted Morrus in post Silver Subscription
    They’re two entirely different things. One offers some little forum perks, the other offers weekly D&D articles and adventures. You can choose whichever you prefer. I know the difference. the problem is that *it's not working*. I've paid for copper, but my name isn't in copper, my signature is gone, even my custom title is gone. People with silver level are also not getting their perks. It's a little frustrating. Maybe we weren't clear enough? But essentially it's like being in a restaurant, saying "excuse me, where are the pancakes I ordered?" and you replying "oh, pancakes and crepes are different, most people here take crepes but pancakes are available". That's great, but where are the pancakes?

  • 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 I’ve 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.

    And that's bad because...? Somebody's wrong on the internet? If not for the imperative to correct people who are wrong on the internet, ENWorld would be a ghost town.

    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
