    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...

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...

  • 12:09 PM - SigmaOne mentioned Morrus in post Adventures in Middle Earth magic - does it work?
    Thanks to Morrus and BookBarbarian for the comments. I'll have to read the AiME books, and see how I feel... see whether I think low-magic can be done in 5e at all. High magic certainly does seem baked in by default, and that may be quite difficult to overcome for people who want "D&D". If it is as much about expectations as anything else, perhaps that is manageable. Otherwise, perhaps I'll look into TOR. I've learned from experience with Cypher System that getting a group into a whole new ruleset can be a lot more work than I may want to deal with, so I'd prefer 5e AiME if possible.

  • 02:16 PM - SigmaOne mentioned Morrus in post Adventures in Middle Earth magic - does it work?
    I just posted an in depth blog post on this topic: http://dicehaven.com/middle-earth/things-learned/ TLDR version: I love Adventures in Middle-earth but it does require a different approach to structuring game sessions and play. Very satisfying though! Thanks for this blog post! I picked up the Adventures in Middle-Earth Player's Guide and Loremaster book this weekend at Gencon on a whim, mostly because I want a strong low-magic setting and that seems impossible using the player's handbook (without disappointing nearly every player at the table). This seems to do that well, with a number of other neat systems. My friends loved the Journey system in The One Ring. (I do think he liked some of the mechanics in TOR better, but I'm definitely set on 5e for a few reasons.) Anyway, I greatly appreciate the post you linked. Morrus, did you ever get around to trying out Adventures in Middle Earth? If so, any comments on the experience?

  • 02:18 AM - Lanefan mentioned Morrus in post Help for someone clueless about D&D before AD&D 1st Edition?
    Hi. I am only familiar with D&D as far back as AD&D 1st Edition and would very much like to learn about what the game was like before that - Races, Classes, Monsters, Cosmology, etc. Is there anything like a timeline listing when things appeared in the game? I seem to recall Morrus at one time had a pretty impressive timeline chart showing what was released when through all of D&D's history up to that time, but I'm not sure where he's hidden it or even if it's still on this site.

  • 03:57 AM - DMMike mentioned Morrus in post Whatís The Greatest D&D Video Game?
    I've always felt that the Final Fantasy style of putting the PCs on one side and the monsters on the other, which was explicitly inspired by American football of all things, is a great reflection of the type of abstract combat that a lot of lazy DMs implement instead of actually tracking positions when using Theater of the Mind. That might well be, but I see the Final Fantasy screen as a division of the game table more than the battlefield. I really hope that FF players didn't see a 50-yard-line down the middle of their screens while fighting, despite the resemblance. Really? It's still more than the sorcerer gets. It's probably not fair, but I was comparing wizards to wizards. Maybe sorcerers don't need a lot of spells, but I was spoiled by D&D's wizards - limited only by the size of their spellbooks. For what it's worth, Morrus, I listened to the first half-hour of the podcast leading up to the end of this post, but still haven't heard about the Greatest D&D Video Game ever. Are there any plans to post podcast timestamps on the Podbean site?

    Coding that information wouldnít be too hard. What would be hard is all the data entry. It would take days of work to enter all the text of all the exploits etc. I havenít even added the OLD, NOW, and 2000AD careers yet.Hey, Morrus, what does the php spreadsheet look like? I have a lot of the racial, career, and exploit data typed into an excel spreadsheet. Would you be able to use that easily?
  • 04:33 PM - Emerikol mentioned Morrus in post What are you doing / what hooked you about WOIN?
    Morrus Actually something just hit me. With your approach a person with six dice will have a higher chance of a critical failure than a person with five dice. Maybe a number of ones on two fewer dice than the total with an absolute minimum of two dice. This makes high dice pools almost impossible to critically fail but maybe that is okay for now. Your way isn't the end of the world. I like thinking about the probabiliities etc... Thanks again for the info.
  • 02:02 PM - Maelish mentioned Morrus in post Who knows PHP?
    @Morrus Will you post a link to your completed tool? I do PHP as well, this is a tool of mine. I'm sure you'll recognize this Fantasy Coin Calculator from an old Dragon Magazine article. Which brings up a question of my own, have there been any newer articles like Coins in a Coffer? I wouldn't mind adding a new feature or two.

    Because they make more then than by selling it when it's less valuable? And even more by keeping a profitable company under their umbrella. Probably, this move was something Curse wanted, and twitch/amazon just didn't care as long as the price was reasonable. Well, that's odd. I only got a Twitch account to be able to log into DDB. I wonder how long until the security/admin stuff changes. Won't change your twitch integration, according to the stream linked in the OP. Twitch will remain linked to DDB, and you can still use your twitch login to authenticate your DDB access, or you will be able to use other authentication avenues like google or facebook.

  • 03:45 PM - Piratecat quoted Morrus in post Check Out The Cover of Swords of the Serpentine From Pelgrane
    Iíve played a session of Timewatch at a convention. Iím assuming this is a fantasy version of that? Same core ruleset? Rules start from the same base, but how they're implemented is quite different. There's a bunch of shared abilities -- how you interact with others -- and then each class has 4 unique investigative abilities that really power what they can do as heroes. You can even mix and match those, if you don't mind trading a little bit of power for flexibility. Doing that helps you create exactly the hero you want. For instance, young Conan would have abilities from both Thief and Warrior, while Conan at his peak would be all Warrior. I spent a lot of time making combat feel both fun, powerful, and cinematic. No one wants to attack their foe and have no choice other than plinking them for 1 point of damage. And then I have a new system for manipulating and drawing on political allegiances, so you can affect the world around you as well.

  • 06:47 PM - akr71 quoted Morrus in post Rotating DMs?
    I'm now thinking about a DM in the centre of a doughnut shaped table, slowly rotating while running the game. Me too, which made me concerned. I occasionally suffer from vertigo and generally don't deal very will with dizziness. More seriously, my game group has a rotating DM chair - sort of. It is mostly me, but another of our players has DM'd for a few sessions and likely will again in the near future. My wife has also DM'd a one-shot for this group, and would like to do something a little longer next time. Planning and communication. The outgoing and incoming DM need to share a bit of info on the end point and start point so that the flow doesn't seem too disjointed. If it is a casual group and you just want to hand-wave it, then that works too. We've had a couple casual discussions about Dungeon of the Mad Mage since each level of the dungeon is supposed to be fairly self contained. It gives us a city as a base of operations and lots of dungeon to play with. The honor sys...
  • 05:43 PM - CydKnight quoted Morrus in post Why 5E may be the last edition of D&D
    Well, nothing in the history of the world has ever lasted forever. I suspect this edition will last longer than any previous ones, but 6E will one day be a big thing. Maybe the biggest thing!At the risk of being overly contrarian for contrarian's sake, I would amend this statement to "nothing in the history of the universe has ever lasted forever". Also, the inevitable end of 5E doesn't necessarily mean there will be a "6E" or any other new edition. It may mean the end of D&D (gasp!).

    Well, nothing in the history of the world has ever lasted forever. I suspect this edition will last longer than any previous ones, but 6E will one day be a big thing. Maybe the biggest thing! I doubt it. I think 6e will be a relatively small thing, more in line with something like The One Ring 2nd Edition. The same game, cleaned up, some lessons learned, minor changes, math changed where they learned too late that they'd biffed an equation, etc. I doubt that even what subclasses are in the PHB will be changed much. I'd expect stuff like Four Elements Monk getting a rebalance, maybe Ranger, at most, would get a real overhaul. That's the most drastic change I'd expect to see. You'll be able to play a 5e Fey Warlock in a 6e game. It will probably come in a gorgeous boxed set, though. I'd love a book for 5e like 4e's Rules Compendium, and I wouldn't be surprised if such a thing came out with "6e". its just been 4 years. I think they will start thinking seriously about 6e in the next coupl...

    I like that idea, but I don't think that phrasing is easy to parse. I wonder if it's better just to put it in your own words? Maybe something like: MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $65 for two hardcover core rulebooks Perfect! David, Barantor, thank you for suggesting this. I think that'll be a great addition. :-) Morrus, thank you for the formatting, it's a clearer vision. :-)
  • 04:22 PM - WaterRabbit quoted Morrus in post Flanking - Do you use it, and if so how?
    I agree with those that feel that advantage is too big a bonus and too easy to get while flanking. It creates a weird dynamic where the DM is left trying to figure out how to ensure everybody doesn't always have advantage on all attacks. I just don't understand this. It literally has never come up in over a year of playing with this rule. We started as a group with it and as the DM I have never had to try and figure this out. It just isn't an issue. I think most people forget that to flank using this rule the flankers have to be exactly opposite from each other. That means one of those characters is going to be more exposed to an enemy with the commensurate increase in risk. As the DM, there are much more difficult problems than this. Making sure that you don't over coordinate the opposition forces to an unfair advantage against the party. As the DM you have perfect knowledge of where every combatant is located which means it is very easy to out maneuver the party if you aren't...

  • 10:03 AM - delericho quoted Morrus in post Rate the Star Wars Movies
    Even the kids who liked the prequels don't rank them as classics in the way we did the originals. When they're our age, they won't be reminiscing about the Star Wars prequels with rose-covered glasses in the way we do the OT. They'll be reminiscing about something, but it won't be the Star Wars prequels. Those three films never had that cultural zeitgeist. My guess for that "something else" would be Harry Potter - the first film in that series hit in 2001, between TPM and AotC. Of course, JKR is now running into trouble with her own set of prequels. Maybe in twenty years Disney will buy that IP, too?
  • 05:02 AM - Jester David quoted Morrus in post Rate the Star Wars Movies
    Literally not what I said. Read it again, please. at The author or the first link ranks Revenge of the Sith as their favourite, I do think that in 20 years the 25yo who were introduced to Star Wars via the prequels might view them with the same nostalgia. And right now they might well enjoy those films like I enjoyed A New Hope prior to the prequels. Because ANH isn't that good. Not on paper. It has terrible dialogue, poor pacing, flat characters, and is tropey as :):):):). It uses plots from radio and film serials that were already three decades old that point. It's good largely because or nostalgia. And you can see how well Star Wars does in places with out that nostalgia by looking at China, where it is crushed at the box office.

    Even the kids who liked the prequels don't rank them as classics in the way we did the originals.

They'll be reminiscing about something, but it won't be the Star Wars prequels. Those three films never had that cultural zeitgeist. I'm a child of the nineties. I look fondly towards stuff like Friends, Seinfield, Sky Dancers, the Dreamstone, and the like. Granted, I'm not that fond of the prequels, but being that fond of Star Wars after the 80's is not really feasible. The OT was groundbreaking and highly influential, but that is the problem, everything made after the OT is heavily influenced by it, where once it was a fresh new thing, it barely stands apart by now. By the time the original trilogy was re-released in the mid nineties, I had been bombarded by countless parodies, shot outs and homages of it to really care. -And lets not go into the empire strikes...
