    So are Jon and Dany headed for conflict? She can be quite murdery about people who challenge her right to rule the world, and heís now a potential threat to that.

    Not even slightly. I mean, if I found out a player was deliberately using a loaded die (something that's never happened in 30 years of gaming, and I suspect never will) I guess that would need a conversation. But otherwise? Nope.

    GaryCon is a blast! Itís also growing fast. I wouldnít be surprised if they put a cap on attendance. Also GameHoleCon is awesome and is one of the big three or four bucket list cons in my humble opinion. I think the edition treadmill fatigue hits a lot of folks. Which makes 5es continued blockbuster growth even more amazing.

    I usually choose to not answer that question. Unless you are making the metaphysics a plot point in the campaign, it isn't something that *needs* an answer. But then, I run games in which the gods generally do not appear in person (or even in avatar), so that there's always a question as to what they are, or even if they exist.

    Also note "the weave" is very specifically a Forgotten Realms concept, not a generic D&D one. There is also a problem with saying "the power comes form the cleric" and then noting that without access to the weave, there is no spell to be had. That means there isn't one "the power" but several elements that comprise power, and the cleric doesn't have some of them innate to themselves. ...

    Characters had hit points, but the GM was coached to wreck PCs in ways that are more interesting than death by attrition. In the new Over the Edge (due out in June), a character dies or knocked out of the action if they get wrecked (stricken) three times. Losing a dice throw is an easy way for your character to get wrecked.

    Not really. Yes, things take more time when something goes wrong, but Hofstadter's Law is less about things going wrong, and m ore about how poorly humans estimate. Basically, even if everything goes well, your estimate of completion date will still be wrong.

    No. It is informing folks that putting a "-" sign on a thread title does not change the rules that apply to posts. Dude, he wants to be able to discuss a bit of media now and then without having it swamped by the same old arguments time after time. That's not "intolerant of differing views", that's not wanting to listen to the same trash talk 17 times over. It gets old.

    I think that enough people play with various elements that they might focus upon that the best you should say is, "RPG play is *usually* not a literary endeavor, because the quality of form is not a common focus." Going beyond that is making claims on the community that nobody really has the power to do, hey what?

    I suspect that the game would then become dominated by the folks who sit at their computers for long periods each day,with spare time ready and able to post, and those who don't have the availability will be marginalized as players. The marginalized players will not feel much more connection to the game, and will drop away.

    I wonder if minus the huge investment into the Pathfinder video game, it might be making more money for them than the RPG. Maybe they don't care if the RPG is all that successful as much as they care about IP for the video game? Like Marvel with Movies? I mean I'm sure they care about a quality RPG product, but maybe it isn't really the bacon any more?

    Sure. Any location - whether big like Twitter or small like here - is just a potential sparking point for a bigger effect. Usually it isnít, but sometimes something happens, and careers end and brands get damaged. One guy at a company staying quiet for a bit is prudent.l, lest it escalate (which it probably wouldnít, but itís not a risk worth taking).

    In 13th Age, by default the party can "flee" at any point in a fight, and all the characters survive (unless they're already dead). The penalty is a "campaign loss," as in, something goes badly in the game world as a result. The rule doesn't prevent all PC deaths, but it's a big help. Back in 2008, I wrote up that rule and posted it on Gleemax, the short-lived digital platform that Wizards of the...

    Yeah, but Klyden's not a crew member, so we don't expect to see him live up to the Trek standard. He also serves as a window into Moclan culture, especially when Bortus is willing to question it. I had kind of a Riker vibe going on too since there were similarities at first, but then they went in a very different direction with it.

    Correct. Itís a derogatory term (along withĒSJWĒ, etc), designed specifically to deride, dismiss, and exclude inclusive speech*, and as such is not allowed here. *Google Popperís Theorem before anybody wittily comments on that sentence.

    Yep. *If* it rolls. You realize that just one die instead kinda flopping and not rolling can impact the average result when rolling stats, yes? That's why I recommend the cup and dice tower, as those help insure rolling.

    Um, which side, exactly, has destroyed entire inhabited planets to strike fear in the hearts of the populace? Do we have any in-canon record of the Rebellion targeting civilians, or, in fact, attacking anything other than military installations or vessels? Even if we include the action against Jabba the Hutt as "Rebellion" (a dicey posit, at best), that is action against an acknowledged...

    But you just said it right there! There is already more material than anyone can use. "I already have more than I need, so pick up the pace of publishing!" does not make a whole lot of sense, to me. None of us are fully informed on the business side of things, but indications from Amazon sales rankings and other anecdotal evidence is that sales... are pretty darned awesome. If I was seeing...

    How you physically roll the dice matters. Consider having her use a dice cup or dice tower, which significantly limit the ability to control the dice rolling, and see if the result changes.

    It's not just the New York Times writing about D&D. The Washington Post is weighing in too! D&D has been featuring in mainstream media for a while. The BBC wrote about it last year, and sites like Forbes, and even Popular Mechanics, have articles about the game.

    Itís a D&D adventure. In the show, the kids play D&D from time to time. The ďauthorĒ of the adventure is one of the characters from the show, but itís basically a regular D&D adventure. The kids in the show were the players, not the characters.

    You can test it, if you have the courage. Roll 100 times (or more, if you like), and do a little math. https://rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/70802/how-can-i-test-whether-a-die-is-fair Note before you try this that having one's preferred narrative contradicted sometimes has adverse results. You may decide to live with your perception, rather than the harsh light of statistical analysis.

  • 05:17 AM - Connorsrpg mentioned Morrus in post Starting Adventures
    Hey Morrus, I am interested in submitting some short introductory and low level adventures to En5ider, but I have 1 question for you and the community: Do I need to provide the starting settlement? As in, I wish to submit some adventures that can be 'tacked on' to a settlement of choice by the DM, such as the ones already detailed on EN5ider. Would DMs be happy with this? Would I refer to people in their role, or still give them names etc? Eg: the watch captian vs Thorved the watch captain.

  • 04:37 AM - Ancalagon mentioned Morrus in post Game Trade Media playtest video
    Another comment on shields, realism and gaming: using 2 shields as a fighting style seems just plain wrong to me. (This was mentioned in an earlier post by Paizo). If I was GMing the game (probably won't ever happen) I wouldn't allow it, and I certainly won't use it as a player.

    Morrus, I see that terms like "virtue signalling" (a new one to me) and SJW are not allowed on this forum, but is the same true of terms like "white privilege" and similar?
  • 07:09 PM - Cergorach mentioned Morrus in post Do We Still Need "Oriental Adventures"?
    "Two things I can't stand are racism and the Dutch!" - Michael Caine's character in one of those Austin Powers movies. When you quote a movie, quote it correctly! So that everyone can bake in it's glorious contrariety... ;-) Morrus: The article isn't discussing ANY particular culture, that would be great content! But your doing now what we all don't like saying that Africa or the Orient is a culture, it isn't. It's a collection of cultures. Instead of authors raving against things that are wrong with RPG products, why not show them how it's done?

  • 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!

    I like how this guy in the link below (I feel like heís familiar... like heís up to something these days... something big) has ported skill challenges into 5e. Iíve already incorporated a few of my own design into our current campaign and theyíve gone well. I like Morrusís suggestion not to announce ďnow it's time for a skill challenge!Ē 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

    Maybe I should just give all members the ability to change all thread tags. What could possibly go wrong? Can you restrict it to only allowing people to provide a tag where there is none? I seldom see threads with an "incorrect" tag, but frequently see threads where somebody neglected to put a tag (maybe they forgot, or thought it was unnecessary because the forums were hithertofore organized by edition).
  • 09:03 PM - Myrdin Potter quoted Morrus in post John Wick Sells 7th Sea to Chaosium
    Yeah, I have to agree. In its current iteration, Chaosium is not only good at fulfilling Kickstarters, they have a reputation for saving and fulfilling other companyís Kickstarters. I agree that they have fulfilled the one Runequest KS that they took over, but even the third parties they have a license too had a bad rep for finishing. There was an article on this site about that. For the Runequest one they took over, they provided the books but said the other stretch goals were not going to happen. I cannot find any KS the new group has started and run successfully, so I canít see how they could have a good reputation there. I provided a link to the one I am aware of and it is years late.
  • 08:51 PM - Yunru quoted Morrus in post [Merged] D&D forum renaming thread
    Side note -- you can sort threads by tag. I don't know. Clicking the 5E filter (or whatever) doesn't feel like that much of a burden to me. But that's just my opinion. But at that point you might as well have had a subforum. It has the same effect, except now it's less newbie friendly (and relies on people actually tagging their post).

  • 06:47 PM - Aaron L quoted Morrus in post The Fortenite-ification of Everything
    Your anecdote doesn't match mine. Not trying to dispute your personal experience, but really? Your friends would only buy books for one setting, and refuse to buy any books from any other setting? That just seems truly bizarre to me. Among my friends each of us had a preferred setting that we would focus on (and use when that person DM'd a campaign if they didn't want to use their own homebrew world) but all of us would happily buy any book from any setting that caught our interest (we had 8 people in our core D&D group of friends and out of those 8, 1 was our primary Dungeon Master who ran our primary campaign, but 4 others also routinely ran our own long-term campaigns as well, and 1 other who also ran a short-term campaign and the occasional one-shot games when the feeling struck him. At the time I just thought that was normal for D&D groups, but from what I've heard online since then I guess it is highly unusual?) The only reason we didn't all buy up every book TSR released was ...

  • 02:19 PM - JeffB quoted Morrus in post Which retroclone/OSR game is closest to AD&D 2E?
    I have a large 2E collection (and other editions). I was curious what third parties had done to evolve or improve the core rules. Ah. I see. The only retro "clone" IMO to really take the AD&D system and improve/evolve/unify the mechanics of the game is Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyberborea.

    I have a large 2E collection (and other editions). I was curious what third parties had done to evolve or improve the core rules. There's not alot. 2E was alot smaller and a lot of it is not OGL. Gold and Glory evokes 2E well but it's a bit pointless if you have a 2E phb.

    Just a change of names so far, thatís all. I was worried about awesome D&D articles like the Jim Ward column getting the eyeballs they deserve. Iíll see how it goes for a week or two while the mandatory reflex reactions settle down. :) I'm guessing .... not good. ;) I would make a suggestion, though. I agree that the Jim Ward column is super awesome and everyone should read it. And that the (old?) 5e forum got the most eyeballz. Maybe just cross-post it to there? Is that possible?
  • 10:52 AM - Myzzrym quoted Morrus in post Fantasy Grounds Unity KS Announced
    So theyíre sorta re-writing their software in a different programming language? So how does that affect the users of FG? Does it make FG do something it couldnít do before? (Not being awkward; I just havenít the foggiest what this means). Basically yes. It's not just a different programming language, you can consider Unity as sort of a helper - there's tons of things it can already do on its own, so instead of having to code everything every time you want to add a new feature, in Unity there's a high chance that there's already bits and pieces you can use to do what you want. Because there's pre-build solutions, there's also a high chance that refactoring (basically rewriting the code) will help making a more robust / better quality product. That being said, often it also means that a lot of time will be spent re-making what already exists (but better) instead of purely working on new features.

    I have no idea how it must feel. The highs of acquiring the rights to your own game, and then running the biggest RPG Kickstarter ever, and then coming to this must be quite the rollercoaster. But finding some other way to ensure Kickstarter backers got their rewards was the responsible thing to do. Credit to John Wick for being so considerate of the fate of backers along with his own sanity. I supported other Kickstarters, one which funded successfully, over-promised stretch goals, burnt down due to its own success, and the creator skulked away in a very bad state, with angry backers and no resolution for years till date. :-(

  • 11:01 PM - LordEntrails quoted Morrus in post Fantasy Grounds Unity KS Announced
    So theyíre sorta re-writing their software in a different programming language? So how does that affect the users of FG? Does it make FG do something it couldnít do before? (Not being awkward; I just havenít the foggiest what this means). Not a problem. But yes, they are basically re-writing everything to a modern standard. For the users it actually means very little (see my first post) right now. In general the user interface and such is expected to stay the same. The biggest thing 'right-now' is in terms of networking. With FG being a client-server, meaning you host it on your own computer, and not the FG servers itself (like Roll20 does) it means that in some cases someone's firewall or network blocks the connection and they have to setup port forwarding or use a VPN to tunnel through their network to allow your computers to connect to each other. With new/current networking protocols, this should no longer be necessary. Plus, with the expected hosted option, you will b...

    So theyíre sorta re-writing their software in a different programming language? So how does that affect the users of FG? Does it make FG do something it couldnít do before? (Not being awkward; I just havenít the foggiest what this means). It will probably make their existing VTT more attractive and robust, their databases run more quickly and smoothly, and their service more reliable. At least, that should be their goal. Any new functionality will be at SmiteWorks' discretion. It apparently also means they get to send another invoice to their users who were savvy enough not to opt for their 'software as a service' rip-off scheme. Just because you have an emotional dislike of something, doesn't mean you should be be spreading misinformation or "alternative facts". Not an opinion: The Ultimate license, which a gamemaster needs to run a table without his players paying anything, costs $10/month or $149 flat. This includes no game content that isn't available for free elsew...

    So how does that affect Fantasy Grounds? The move to Unity? So right now, FG is a whole custom app written in XML, LUA and maybe C++. The networking code, map handling, physics engine for the dice, et al is written and maintained by SmiteWorks. So if they want to do something like support 64-bit architecture, they have to re-write the whole things. If they want to change to using a different network protocol, they have to write the whole sub-routine. It gives them absolute control, but also absolute responsibility for everything. With Unity, their are multiple libraries or packages of code for things like displaying images, or networking, or physics engines etc. So, SW just has to decide on which packages they want to integrate, write the code so that the packages can talk to each other (i.e. the network package passes this data set to the image display package, and variables x, y, and z, in the network package equal variables m, n, o in the display package). Think of it like an ...
  • 08:55 PM - LordEntrails quoted Morrus in post Fantasy Grounds Unity KS Announced
    But will it cost less than the GDP of a small nation? For most use cases it costs less than Roll20. Could somebody explain what Unity is to the uninitiated? Unity is a software development platform, or engine. Typically it is used for games and works on multiple platforms (like console, PC, phone, etc). It has a bunch of "libraries" or functions that can be used (or bought for use) that helps a developer not have to reinvent the wheel. Basically it is a set of customize able building blocks of functions. A lot like a vBulletin or PHPBB is for forum software, but Unity is not narrowed to a single functionality, though it is tailored for things that games (solo, online, MMO, etc) typically want.

  • 05:19 AM - Flips quoted Morrus in post O.L.D. v1.2 Playtest Version
    This is the only revision of the book there's ever been. Sorry, this may have been my misunderstanding with the errata to "Remove the reference to the minimum skill requirements for higher quality equipment, and the corresponding column in the table." and how that interacts with defenses.
