    I'd say "official" is nothing, but "default" is Forgotten Realms, if I were to distinguish between the two terms.

    Yeah. They used to get around that with the "fixed point in time" technobabble but they don't do that any more. But all of it's the past for the Doctor, so every alien stopped is altering history.

    Umbran started a thread Stan Lee - Excelsior!
    I know this is mentioned in the Remembrances thread, but the man had such an impact on genre fiction, I think he deserves his own thread. Mr. Stan Lee, one of the fathers of modern comic books and superheroes, has passed, at the age of 95. https://www.npr.org/2018/11/12/106322838/a-marvel-of-a-man-stan-lee-dead-at-95

    I appreciate the notes. Yeah I think to me the Eidelon's offensive CR is a bit underrepresented because it has a very solid possibility of knocking out an equivalent level player in a single round....which of course reduces the party's offense against it. Compare that to a stone golem that will take a few rounds to do the same, so it has to endure more punishment. But again I don't think this...

    99% of the time the damage type won't matter, so you can deduct the SOAK from the total. The STR bonus applies to his base damage, not to the exploit, so it goes to the bunt damage should that info be needed. The times it will matter are if the target has SOAK to only blunt or only fire, in which case it could only reduce those portions of the total.

    Science interjection - you've got it a little messed up. Arthropoods have two separate issues as they get large. One is weight - the materials used in exoskeletons are not particularly strong. It cannot carry the same weight that bone can - so, if they get too big, arthropod exoskeletons will break legs, and the like. This can be gotten around by fundamentally changing the materials used...

    Generally speaking, SOAK (and immunities etc.) have to apply to all damage types. The non-SOAKing of armour is slightly awkwardly phrased, though, I'll admit! Basically, if you have *been* poisoned (gas, food, atmosphere, etc.), armour isn't going to help you. If the poison is on a weapon, then sure, armor will help. It's all about the delivery system.

    Kings and queens to not typically hold their position due to right of personal arms or personal physical prowess. They hold the role by tradition and political acumen. Any writeup that gives them some understanding of History, a decent Insight, and decent scores in, say, Diplomacy, Deception, and Persuasion would do.

    So it sounds like your main concern in the argument isn't the damage of ranged, its the true "range" of ranged. For example in 3e many ranged benefits fell away at 30 feet (Sneak Attack, Point Blank Shot). On the other hand, 5e imposes greater penalty for "moderate ranges". For 3e with your composite bow you suffered a -2 to attack rolls from ranges 110 - 215. In 5e, starting at 150 you...

    Its an interesting point. I think the point is valid that there are certain monsters that some party members will struggle to save against.

In general, my issue with 5e legendary monsters is there lack of threat. Because attacks and damage do not scale heavily with levels, the number of actions/attacks has a much bigger impact on the...

  • 12:17 AM - Kobold Boots mentioned Morrus in post Question re: Use of content on Obsidian Portal
    @Morrus should answer for sure. I imagine there wouldn't be a problem using images and excerpts of text, as long as you're not reproducing full encounters. As for what address to link to, I'm not sure if it will change since we've had a site reboot after December's hack attack, but I believe right now the go-to page is www.enworld.org/ap Thanks much. 1. No intent to reproduce or disseminate content that isn't part of a free download. I may want to reproduce parts of the players guide for ease of function; but the group is private. 2. Every page with content will contain a link back to ENPublishing as appropriate. Will wait on Morrus

    Morrus and darjr: Okay, I know I have activated the wiki setting in the campaign group, but when I went to save this page, I didn't see an option to associate it with the group. Should there be a drop-down box? I'm a bit confused by the whole process. Or do I have to create a book page first and associate that with the group?

  • 02:54 PM - Poul Wrist quoted Morrus in post [Zeitgeist] Using 3.5 sourcebooks ?
    You might have to tweak things here and there, and make the occasional GM snap judgement, but it should work OK by and large. 3.5 and Pathfinder are pretty similar in the underlying engine, although Pathfinder has 15 years of splat books and options which 3.5 doesn't have. Yes, this is what I'm thinking. I just don't want to start spending on a full set of Pathfinder... mostly because I have all this stuff already. But thanks for your reply. Even if I have been looking at those pathfinder core books... still. Recycling!

  • 05:20 PM - Lord Rasputin quoted Morrus in post Palladium Announces Collapse of Robotech RPG Tactics Kickstarter
    Yeah, Kickstarter changed its terms in the last couple of years to protect backers better. That said, this Kickstarter predates those changes.The terms in place at the time do pretty clearly state the backers can get a refund: https://web.archive.org/web/20130418081350/http://www.kickstarter.com/terms-of-use "Project Creators are required to fulfill all rewards of their successful fundraising campaigns or refund any Backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill." I suspect Palladium Books doesn't have the money to handle all the refunds, based on its requiring any backer who wants Wave One rewards instead to pay the shipping cost.
  • 04:12 PM - Jester David quoted Morrus in post Palladium Announces Collapse of Robotech RPG Tactics Kickstarter
    Ouch. That’s short! Do you think they knew sooner but opted not to say anything? Conspiracy theories: 1) The short deadline is so people have a limited time to respond and therefor will not opt into receiving something else, meaning they won't have to give away as much product. Having to burn product after a failed licence seems like something they can write off against taxes. And can focus on getting more product to stores prior. 2) Robotech owners Harmony Gold also aren't the most well-to-do company. They haven't successfully done a film by themselves in 15 years and probably stay afloat through their real estate business. Royalties from Palladium would be a nice boon for a property they're likely not seeing money from (apart from what Netflix pays). I wonder if Palladium is purposely not renewing so they can end this Kickstarter fiasco. So that in a year or two they can point to losing the licence and the cause of why they didn't deliver...
  • 03:31 PM - Gorath99 quoted Morrus in post Palladium Announces Collapse of Robotech RPG Tactics Kickstarter
    Well, that depends on the terms of the license. The license will say how it ends, what notice must be given, what happens to existing stock, and so on. In this case, it appears to be an expiry and non-renewal; it probably has a sell-off period for existing stock. Until the end of March, according to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rrpgt/robotech-rpg-tacticstm/posts/2124551?ref=backer_project_update: Palladium’s license for RRT and the Robotech® RPG book series has ended. That means we will be liquidating ALL Robotech® products, starting with RRT backers who want to receive Wave One items for their Wave Two rewards. As part of our license agreement, Palladium has a short window (from now until the end of March) to liquidate our stock of Robotech® RPG Tactics (RRT) products, Robotech® Shadow Chronicles® Role-Playing Game books, and the PDFs of the original Robotech® RPG series currently available on DriveThruRPG.com.
  • 01:53 PM - stargazera5 quoted Morrus in post Palladium Announces Collapse of Robotech RPG Tactics Kickstarter
    I looked over the page, but I wasn't clear on what Wave One and Wave Two were? Where should I be looking for that info? I'm probably just being blind.

    No. Sorry.Okay, so you essentially can't access the former subforum any longer if you're away from desktop? At one time, you experimented with "virtual subforums" (For lack of a more precise term). It looked just like a subforum but I guess it was implemented through a filter on the bigger forum. If that was removed because it killed DB performance, so be it. But otherwise, would you consider setting up a solution to replace former subforums for your mobile users? Thanks for replying, Zapp

    Really? You're shaming her for her appearance and name? EN World is an inclusive community. That means not shaming women because of how they look. This post is not acceptable. Morrus, while I don't agree with everything you say or do...on this i give you 457 high fives. This spectacular woman is amazingly awesome. Her talent and desire for DnD is inspiring. Who cares about what her background might be. She builds the DnD community, showing that women can be strong and powerful in this amazing game we love.

  • 03:17 PM - Thomas Bowman quoted Morrus in post D20 Pirates Blog--Updated
    The suspected sites of Atlantis number in the dozens. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Location_hypotheses_of_Atlantis I'm fond of William Beaumont's opinion that Atlantis was Great Britain. Little Shole Bank was the capital, apparently. There is a good case for Atlantis being Crete. The Minoan palace and buildings discovered at the digs at Knossos on Crete and at Akrotiri on the island of Thera have revealed that the Minoans possessed advanced engineering knowledge enabling the construction of three- and four-story buildings with intricate water piping systems, advanced air-flow management, and earthquake-resistant wood and masonry walls. This level of technology was, it is said, far ahead of that found on mainland Greece at the time. There are no classical records of an Atlantis-related volcanic eruption in the eastern Mediterranean so it must have occurred before the development of writing, perhaps before 1000 BC.[4] Thera (also called Santorini) is the site of a massive volcanic caldera ...

  • 09:10 PM - Schmoe quoted Morrus in post Page Links in List of Threads are Gone in New Design
    Everything adds a database query to the page. Viewcounts all add database queries, page display indicators add database queries, etc. The reason a site gets slow is often (and in our case usually) because of a large number of database queries on every page load. Every little thing you remove is one less database query, and they all add up. A streamlined site therefore moves faster. Even without any more information, when I saw the redesign I figured that removing a lot of the extra "content" would improve the performance. I assume the answer is yes, but have you also done some analysis of the database workload and performance? A good analyst can do great things with partitioning, indexes, and table-specific tuning. Since the streamlining last weekend, we've had a 40% speed increase. That's quite a bit; and it'll also benefit our Google rankings, as we were ranked as "very slow". That's great to hear! 40% is outstanding. When I said I hadn't noticed huge improvement, that's mostl...
  • 05:54 PM - Nevvur quoted Morrus in post Page Links in List of Threads are Gone in New Design
    How did you do that? it used to show the first 10, then a gap, then the last one, like this: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ... 32 So you'd have had to go to the last page then from there go back one, which you can still do now. True. To clarify, I was speaking of threads with fewer than 10 pages. Once they exceeded that amount, I usually lost interest. For the rare thread that exceeded 10 pages and which I was still interested in following, I would have done as you described. If the page links were to include the last few pages rather than just the last one, that would've suited me even better, but as you said, we never had that. This isn't like a deal breaker or anything for me, just bemoaning the loss of a small convenience. Musing, if this were made a profile option with a default off setting, I wonder how many people would activate it? Enough to make a noticeable impact on speed? My instinct says no.

  • 07:55 PM - ccs quoted Morrus in post Hero Forge for N.E.W. Miniatures
    My attempt at a female Borian mechanic. Can't get the head spikes, sadly, unless I'm missing something. Came to $19.99 in plastic, though I haven't bought it. Several of us in my groups have minis made through HF. Do not spend $ on the cheaper white plastic. You'll get a white mini that's kinda rough & grainy looking. (this is not Hero Forges fault & shouldn't be held against them) Paint may/may not help - depending upon your painting skills. But if you don't paint it you'll definitely have a crappy looking expensive model. The clear plastic is ok - but it's really hard to see the fine detail if left unpainted. The more expensive black plastic is great for detail. Though I highly recommend at least priming or dry brushing it a light grey or such - because completely black 30mm figures don't show off that detail when seen at normal gaming table ranges. If all you want is a little black lump of plastic buy a Bones figure & paint it back for a fraction of the cost.... It IS ...
  • 05:45 PM - Derren quoted Morrus in post Black Panther Trailer
    It's a "wait for TV" for me -- I haven't watched a Marvel flick in the cinema for a couple of years now. I'm kinda burnedt out on them; though I do hear that this one is really good. It certainly is good, but imo it misses the final "Omph" to be great. Nothing much to criticise, a rather constant good level (gets a bit weaker in the 2nd half imo) but also no memorable highlight in my eyes. I even have a hard time calling it a superhero movie. Yes, the characters jump higher and the swords are glowing, but thats it. The same story can (and has several times) be told with just regular persons. There is nothing really "superheroish" happening. There is also hardly any reference to other Marvel movies in BP. They acknowledge that Civil War happened (kinda had to as BPs father died there), one indirect reference to civil war and one after credit scene. Thats it. Certainly not a must see, but if you plan to go to the cinema anyway, BP as a very solid choice.
  • 02:59 AM - neuronphaser quoted Morrus in post What's The Latest On The D&D Movie?
    Quite possibly. But on the other hand we, here on this little D&D webforum, enjoy discussing and speculating about it. :) Oh, heck yeah! Didn't mean to come off negative towards that portion of it! My hope is that they take Drizzt or (a young) Elminster and pull an MCU in the sense that they don't repeat the stories from the books, but use them as inspiration to tell new stories. I feel like those two characters have the biggest body of works to draw from and by extension keep the whole Realms setting in the limelight (meeting a business goal of WOTC's, as opposed to something I actually care much about), and they speak to character types that are already popular in general fantasy mainstream media. I worry that Drizzt might be too much of an Elric clone and cause confusion, though, plus the whole worry about them "accidentally" doing blackface. Elminster has less troublesome issues there. If they go Dragonlance or Ravenloft, I feel like they risk being seen as either too generic ...
