    The interpersonal interactions are some of the elements I enjoy most about the show. My wife has her Housewives and Teen Moms, I got my Rogue/Paladin and Druid making out. :) The PC-with-PC romance angles are definitely something that I canít see happening in any of my games, but in my experience actors always seem to have a different mindset about chemistry that allows two friends to be able to...

    This may sound funny, but a Critical Role episode plays about like one of my groupsí normal D&D games - at times serious, mixed with a bit of humor, foul language, and totally inappropriate humor. :) The occasional epic role-playing moment manages to find its way in there as well.

    I would say that a minuscule chance exists for a PC to misread an NPC, even if they are telling the truth. Itís possible, especially if the NPC is normally a very smooth liar. My spot-ruling would be ďif the person is familiar to you, itís an automatic success. In any other circumstance and the NPC is trying to be actually truthful, itís a DC 5 check.Ē And of course, the DC is secret (as well...

    Yes, now, are you going to claim that someone actually took the MLB rulebook, and specifically cut that down to the game your 5-year-old plays? Because I would be dubious of that proposition. If not, then this example is not really relevant. I submit that the rules of baseball in general are pretty simple, and that the MLB has branched from that and produces Advanced Edition Baseball for...

    Insofar as we don't actually have the data, and no realistic way to gather it properly, no. We actually have rulebooks that don't depend on gathering data from statistically relevant samples of people. Define "mass published".

    That isn't the best. Many years ago now, Jason Carter (who played the ranger, Marcus) once, rather drunk on the dance floor at a convention referred to a woman on the dance floor as a "dominatrix" (intending it as a compliment). Dr. Demento was the DJ, and he just happened to start Tom Lehrer's "Masochism Tango" at that moment. It was a little surreal.

I feel like you sort of have to lean into the 'dungeons' and the 'dragons' part of the name, so what adventures have the most of those, other than Dragonlance which already had its shot? Honestly, R.A. Salvatore's The Crystal Shard hits a lot of the right beats. Big...

    The OP opened the question more broadly than that: "Also note that it doesn't matter if the PCs start at 3rd or 13th. " I'm noting that it may matter what the levels and level ranges are, for some rewards. In some cases you may be handing them less of a reward, and more of a plot complication, depending on the situation.

    Well, if you take it that way, we fundamentally cannot measure the complexity of a game except for a particular table, and then only after the entire campaign is completed, and we know what rules did get used, both official and house-rules. At that point, there's not much more to say, because this isn't practical or constructive. Moreoever, I don't buy it. It seems perfectly fair to me to...

That'll be a shame, as I really like him. He's more Kirk than Kirk! What are your current prevailing theories? What's (who is) the Red Angel? Is Section 31 dead now? Their HQ is basically a tomb.

    You seem to forget that a major issue with complexity is the time it takes to resolve actions. Even if I am not the one initiating a grapple, any time anything in the game grapples, I have to sit around waiting for the grapple to be resolved. In this way, a player's game experience is linked to the complexity of all rules used at the table, not just the ones they personally use.

    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.

    I would not advise any new writer to accept less than 3c/w. And thatís really basement rate pay. Accepting less than that normalises it. Editing is a separate job, paid similarly per word. And yes, payment upon acceptance is appropriate. Good call on that! :)

    After a long illness, Larry DiTillio passed on March 16th at the age of 76. There's a good chance that DiTillio was a part of your childhood or your later geeky years and not even know it. While gamers will remember him as the writer for the Origins award-winning Masks of Nyarlathotep or T&T's The Isle of Darksmoke, he also wrote for Fat Albert, two He-Man shows, She-Ra (which he created), Beast...

    Well thatís for you to decide. I can tell you what I did ó I supported the d20 STL and the GSL for about 15 years give or take, but I went with the plain OGL this time around. Third time lucky. But whatís right for me isnít necessarily whatís right for anybody else. Also, I use tools like Kickstarter and Patreon.

    No, I think there are some techniques and acting practices that these professionals have and use that do not exist at most tables. Saying there's no fundamental difference here is kind of like saying that there's no fundamental difference between what comes out of a good restaurant kitchen, and what comes out of the kitchen of a bachelor grad student.

    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 doesnít 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 WotCís settings and other IP, including art assets. If you want to publish in the...

    The GM should always be free to say that something doesnít 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, itís 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...

    CleverNickName are very awesome for doing this. I was trying to do big math and guessed that they would bring in half the previous day for a number of days before the people dried up and then half again for the rest of the days, but could not get that far. I was thinking around 12 million, but don't want to be cheap and jump on Morrus and bet $1 higher. I'm going to go big and say $23,500,000

  • 12:36 AM - Carmen Sbordone mentioned Morrus in post The New D&D Book Is Called "Ghosts of Saltmarsh" [UPDATED!]
    No evidence here that this book will not be equally Greyhawk focused as the original modules (more, quite possibly). Mike Mearls was just talking about Greyhawk and how he wants to get a Greyhawk product into the world on Dragon Talk a couple weeks ago. Relax. Pattern of behavior of taking items out of greyhawk to FR ToEE and ToH moved out of greyhawk into realms. So its very possible it will happen again. Morrus. Thanks for starting to understand. Greyhawk is important to more then a few. And love to see it fly again.

  • 02:19 AM - ClaytonCross mentioned Morrus in post The Pitfalls of D&D Beyond Data
    This phenomenon of people quoting D&D Beyond stats to prove points happens the most right after they post some of their data. Those posts and threads are months old at this point and so I'm not going to dig them up. However, there's been comments about their data in more recent threads, but it's not important enough to go digging through pages and pages of comments looking for the proverbial needle in the haystick that I know is there (because I've recently read it) just to prove you wrong. Instead I'll give you one current example. The example: @Morrus did. It's still on the front page of this forum and shows in the thread title: "90% of D&D Games Stop By Level 10; Wizards More Popular At Higher Levels" People also use invalid math to prove points. Example: "Average DPR with % hit", we have talked about it before that this is not an acute representation of actual game play damage being that average DPR is only correct about 3% of the time for any specific battle, does not account for 0 sum damage on miss, or loss of damage from over kill... however, I don't have a better metric for measuring damage. So I use it too sometimes to prove a point as do you. The same is true for D&D Beyond data. As @Morrus pointed out... We donít need data at all. Sometimes they share stuff as a conversation point. And itís fun to talk about. But we donít need it. Itís just an excuse for us all to flap our lips You are correct that 1. It will be used to argue and 2. it is not accurate... However, when it agrees with an argument anyone is likel...

    LOL, I love the n00b insult at the end. It's very entertaining! :) Yes which proves his point in that if post are a measure of validity Morrus's 39,521 post to your 3,940 posts would make you a n00b and irrelevant if we are calling that a valid maker of knowledge base. Which we are not. So while your one of the more interesting posters to read you do have a tendency to get a bit dismissive of posters based on off point arguments like posts. I still came to your thread because you make interesting discussion and I heard you. I have even posted a on the D&D Beyond feature requests asking for player inactive characters tags and a statement on slides listing the day delimiter so as we read slides we have a beater representation of what the slide is depicting. That said, questioning the validity of one someone says based on how much they said instead of the content of their argument makes you look bad, instead of making them look unqualified. If your going to say the statement was in jest... their is no indication in the text of the post that implies that and the person your posting to does not know you well enough to infer that ...

    If one is offering a responsorial or correction to a stance that doesn't exist their entire effort is vaporware. Congratulations, you won the debate with.. [checks notes] no one. Not a single person did what you are countering. This phenomenon of people quoting D&D Beyond stats to prove points happens the most right after they post some of their data.

  • 06:33 PM - FrogReaver mentioned Morrus in post The Pitfalls of D&D Beyond Data
    ... They already have a method to account for that, which gives an even better data set than the question you proposed: When the Data says "Active Characters" it means they have controlled for characters who haven't been updated in the past X days. It doesn't matter if the character is meant to be an NPC or PC, it just maters if someone is actually going back to update it, all other characters are considered to be abandoned or a test character. Morrus has claimed multiple times that the charts represent all characters created and even includes the ones not necessarily played. I'd lean toward him being correct on this but maybe not?

  • 05:55 AM - LordEntrails quoted Morrus in post F. Wesley Schneider Is D&D's New Editor
    I think we all know that there is a real issue with lack of diversity in the RPG world in general. ... What I will say though, is that it's a clear reason why we need to support and encourage more diversity for those in the entry level jobs and indie companies. I.e., we need to give minorities that experience so when higher level key roles do open up, we have a much greater diverse and experienced applicant pool. Address the root issue, IMO.... Agreed. And I think the industry is doing pretty well at this. One thing that I took note of recently is the bio post of the Gamma World guy a week ago on ENWorld, it took him 6 years of freelance writing before he got a full time RPG job. People need to realize that it takes time to get the job of your dreams, or even the first in your dream career. The industry is tiny, the market hard to get into, and it takes TIME. Time to get the job, time to change the industry. Perhaps but we haven't seen any hires from there yet. See below Vario...
  • 04:19 AM - Legatus_Legionis quoted Morrus in post The Orville Season Two - Thoughts?
    I was surprised the ship's atmosphere control systems did not put out the smokes as soon as they started to create a hazy in the room if not sooner. And I think they need a warning sign before using their holodeck. It creates addictions! Do you get any British TV from the last 30 years? I disconnected my cable/satellite dish 15 years ago. There was not enough "good shows" to warrant paying for a subscription. I have been going to the cable channel's web-sites and view the few shows worth watching that way. They uploaded it the day after it airs, and is available for 7 days for free. At least up here. Too many of the channels based in the US don't allow non-US IP-address to access it. But if I had to PAY for it, then no. No netflex, no amazon prime, no cbs-access... @ Dannyalcatraz, I did watch Charles Craig hosting Robot Wars.

  • 03:08 PM - Li Shenron quoted Morrus in post Does it ever matter which round you are in?
    An event might take place in round 4. Maybe a new wave of IRCís arrives or the bridge collapses. I had thought of something like that with relation to handling new monsters joining the battle, but I don't think there are explicit rules for that in 5e... So the DM may have planned for something to happen in round #4, but it's totally up to her, and because of that she might also decides it will happen in round #4 at initiative count 10, for example.
  • 01:22 PM - Dausuul quoted Morrus in post D&D storylines for a movie?
    If you were a Hollywood producer and gig had access to D&Dís entire catalogue of novels and adventures since 1974, and you had to pick one novel (or novel series) or adventure (or adventure path) to get the movie treatment... ... what do you pick? Dragonlance Chronicles, no question. It was successful as a story, not just as a D&D product tie-in. Lots of folks loved, and love, Dragonlance who have never played D&D. The story is deep and complex enough that you could make a LotR-style trilogy out of it, and filler would not be required. Even with three movies, your problem would be what to take out instead of what to put in. It has a large and varied cast, with fleshed-out personalities and a tangle of relationships. Fantasy movies often suffer from cardboard characters; Dragonlance need not have this issue. It does not require grappling with the Drow Problem. (The cartoonishly evil race of elves has all-black skin and is a matriarchy; it's fairly appalling, actually. It's only accepte...

    Why would you have any faith absent any information about the director, actors, plot, or anything else? Thereís nothing to have faith in yet.And that makes it the perfect tie to have faith. We have faith in the unknown, not the known. Except in D&D where the Gods are known to be real. That always bugged me. If ceris worship Gods that are known to exist, how can it reallly be faith...

    Why would you have any faith absent any information about the director, actors, plot, or anything else? Thereís nothing to have faith in yet. Still scarred from the original D&D movie :(. Hey, I thought I heard rumors a while back about a D&D cartoon? Did that get canned? I think that would be more fun than a movie, an actually high quality multi-season animated show.

    Oh, god, here we go again. Does it ever stop? I guess the thread title remains relevant...
  • 10:22 PM - OB1 quoted Morrus in post Will 5e be the last edition to emphasize print products?
    I still find it quicker to refer to a book I know well than to use an app or PDF. And I still prefer to sift through and add to my 2,000+ collection of Laser Discs, DVDs and Blu Rays, but I also admit that the industry trend is towards Digital, and that only the most hardcore movie fans under 35 buy physical anymore. :-) I hope there are enough of us that physical discs will still get made for the next couple of decades, but I ainít holding my breath.
  • 08:06 PM - MarkB quoted Morrus in post [+] Star Trek Discovery (Fan) Thread
    What are your current prevailing theories? What's (who is) the Red Angel? I have a feeling it'll turn out to be Tilly, but I'm not sure why I think that. It could also be Stamets. They established his ability to perceive non-linear time, which could be a very useful talent for the Angel. Is Section 31 dead now? Their HQ is basically a tomb. I assume they have a few ships out there, but I don't get the impression they have a fleet or anything.Well, they can't be *completely* dead. Section 31 first appears in DS9. So, they survive in some sense at least long enough to try to recruit Dr. Bashir. Logically, it would make sense for them to be working through how Section 31 went from being a legitimate, if unconventional, arm of Starfleet in this era to the nigh-mythical entirely-covert entity it had become by DS9. Current events seem like a perfectly reasonable stepping stone along that path.

    SOTH NEVER WENT TO RAVENLOFT! I will maintain that until my dying day (though I will admit Lowder's books were a fun read... but in my head-canon it never happened!)In my head-Canon, Soth is STILL in Ravenloft. [emoji13]

  • 07:32 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted Morrus in post Casting Begins Soon For D&D Movie?
    I could be reading too much into semantics here, but the reference to a singular ďmale leadĒ might indicate that this is not a Dragonlance movie. Or at least, not a War of the Lance adaptation. Don't know anything much about Michael Gillio, but his imdb credentials as a writer don't exactly inspire confidence here. Still, it's only one cook out of multiple mixing up the soup at this point. Paramount is looking at A-listers for the male lead
  • 04:55 PM - Andr√© Soares quoted Morrus in post F. Wesley Schneider Is D&D's New Editor
    Well, he got D&D in his Pathfinder before he got Pathfinder in his D&D -- when he started at Paizo they were publishing Dragon Magazine for D&D 3.5. Pathfinder didn't even exist! Life is a circle, not a triangule, but a circle

    These things are the few occasions I wish I had Excel! OpenOffice always seems to struggle with dynamic Excel sheets and the like. I just emailed you an Excel file and an OpenOffice file. Haven't had a chance to see how well the .ods version works. Interested in hearing your thoughts.
  • 04:22 PM - lowkey13 quoted Morrus in post [+] Star Trek Discovery (Fan) Thread
    Important question: when will Spock shave off his beard? Oh. So .... I think it's funny. That said .... Remember the whole "mirror universe" thing. Spock with a goatee thing? Seems like a shame to not even use that. ;) Since Anson Mount is only contracted for one year, I'm guessing Pike leaves at the end of this season. That'll be a shame, as I really like him. He's more Kirk than Kirk! I would pay cash money to watch Anson Mount in several more seasons, or in his own spinoff. So perfect. Probably the best addition to Season 2. Side note- I actually thought Lorca was interesting in S1. Just (SPOILERS) It would have been better if Lorca was just damaged, and an example of the "end justifies the means" and so on INSTEAD of being EVIL EVIL mirror universe. Complexity, and all that. What are your current prevailing theories? What's (who is) the Red Angel? I had been going for Spock. And then I thought, hey, maybe it's Burnham? Because it's all about...
