    Under most circumstances I'd agree, but since we're talking about a random encounter that (if I remember the Martek portion correctly) just pops out of the ground/glass and starts snacking, it should probably be modded in some fashion to avoid a no-win kill-a-character-or-three moment. Now, if it's modded as a "cutscene instance" like Quartz describes, where only major stupidity would get them...

    Ah. Not all random encounters are intended for you to fight and win. Sometimes, you randomly encounter things that you are supposed to then avoid at all costs.

    And the usual suspects show up instantly like bad pennies. That’s two of the trifecta. One to go. @jimmifett and @Derren, don’t post again in this thread, please. Jimmifett, it would be nice if you posted about something else sometimes, but since as far as I can make out the only reason you post in this community is to decry any hint of inclusiveness, it's time for you to leave.

    Plus, multiple tabs (one open to each section you are flipping between) or "previous view", or "split window view." Not to denigrate good old reliable paper (try playing D&D in a power outage with a tablet at 20% power and no battery!) but there are plenty of flippin' tools. (term used non-ironically :))

    Yeah I will say the Party can easily get tpked on this one. The bite will take one pc mostly out of combat, and the poison has a good chance of dropping a pc outright (possibly killing if they are already really wounded). Between the two attacks, you should expect to have a pc drop out of the combat each round.

    RAW: Sounds like it wouldn't matter. They are affected by the Geas, they take the damage. RAI: Reading the spell more carefully, note that if a creature "does not understand" the spellcaster (know their language), the spell has no effect. This sounds like the target needs to KNOW that they are disobeying the caster. Their very disobedience is what triggers the spell - reinforced by the fact...

    Like many other things, dodge is situationally the right call. It is to me most often used when you don't have any effective recourse against a foe for a given round, either because that foe is unattackable for some reason or you are in a terrible position and need to get into better position. The two examples in a game I can think of were: 1) Our party had to cross a hall in a keep in which...

    This is the segment that you are getting confused on. Sanctuary does not generally cause an attack action to be wasted. 1) The monster tries to attack you. 2) It fails its save. 3) It now has the option to attack someone else. Only if it can't (or won't) is its attack action wasted. So unless the monster used all of its movement to get to you, and has no other targets, it is free by the...

    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...

    Folks need to read up on biology a bit before going into such things. You folks are making this way too complicated, and you are trying too hard to bind an alien species that only superficially looks human to human mechanisms and structures. I mean, think for a second, if a male can bring a baby to term, it quite obviously doesn't mean the same thing as "male" does in humans. Even on Earth,...

    I'd agree with everybody else that I'd play the game before trying to adjust it. You can very rarely get a good feel for a game until you've played it.

    Because it occurs to me, as an ironically curious consequence of that, that if WotC’s goal was hypothetically to sell books to you specifically, opening the DMsG has therefore lost them sales rather than gained them.

    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.

    There is a WotC wpn streaming event that day. Presumably for magic. But I've seen others say to tune in for dnd.

  • 06:27 PM - Farrem mentioned Morrus in post Brazilian D&D Translators Fall Out Over Translation Rights
    @kenmarable, you got the general idea. @Morrus it's not a cancelation at will, in brazilian law you can cancel a contrat if one of the parts is misrepresenting themselves (an that is the case, all the plans and all the documents that Fire on Board presented to get the contract included assets from all the other companies). Seriously look at the medium article: More damning yet is an English-language document in which the four FMR members make a joint presentation of their credentials for the licence. “We present to Hasbro–Wizards of the Coast the Companies that will be involved in the licensing partnership,” it reads." (https://medium.com/@t.mcgrenery/why-brazilians-are-boycotting-dungeons-dragons-3fa37ce4d8a3#.6wi85o6fb) And right after this they just tell that the other companies withdrawn? The problem if WotC or GF9 do not intervene is that this is going to court, the judge will stop any publishing until the judgement (and that alone may take years, maybe 2 to 5 years). Not only this, but the judge will probably bring GF9...

  • 04:51 PM - Lylandra mentioned Morrus in post A War of the Burning Sky Wiki
    Hey you all, I've recently had a short conversation with @Morrus about the possibility of creating an easily visible resource page/thread/whateverfor additional content for both WotBS and Zeitgeist where we all could collect information old and new that has accumulated in these forums over the years. Morrus' suggestion was to create a wiki page for each AP where every registered user could update and add stuff (plus anyone could then remove dead links). So, I've taken some time and started the War of the Burning Sky Resource Collection in the wiki area. As you can see, the page is far from finished, so I'd invite all of you who are interested in WotBS and/or have something to share that you've either created yourself or found in the forums and deem useful to visit the wiki page and contribute! As a side note: I know at least one person who would be more than happy to have a corresponding reource collection for Zeitgeist. However, I am a player in our Zeitgeist campaign and don't want to spoiler myself by digging for resource material as we're cur...

  • 04:16 AM - Rolenet mentioned Morrus in post Yet another Solos fix: "Solo actions"
    GURPS and d20 are both core systems You'd think. GURPS d20 is a detailed simulation of Forum Wars pertaining to the d20 Modern and Star Wars d20, as well as the unpublished Vampire d20 and FATE d20. You can play any of several archetypes such as The Clicktroll; the SJG Fanboy, and customize them with Advantages. Included is a conversion table to use 3d6 as a d20. ...nope, I lied, for some reason I have 11 of them. Weird. See? See? Here's my theory. Morrus is actually a collective of South-Asian barely-paid workers that are producing a new kind of virtual currency in shady underground factories. Just check it out; he, sorry they, have five thousand units. FIVE THOUSAND. You can paypal him for more. But you can't cash out. See? They're.. they're mining gold! Virtual fantasy gold! Laugh Morrus! But I have seen through your scheme! You can have my XP, but you won't get my Gold Pieces!
  • 03:47 AM - Rolenet mentioned Morrus in post Yet another Solos fix: "Solo actions"
    No idea about 'Coins' So you see, I don't know, Tony Vargas's been there for 14 1/2 years. He posted 9,316 times. He could have written Games of Thrones AND the unpublished GURPS d20 in that span. There barely was any Internet back in 2002 in Edenvale (this is right near the river Cionthar, Western Heartlands). ENWorld ran on Gopher. But still, he doesn't know about Gold Coins. That tells us something about this feature. But seriously, does someone knows what they're for? SUMMON Morrus?
  • 12:27 AM - Rolenet mentioned Morrus in post D&D Pronunciation Guide
    Morrus, you might have exercised your English in RPG books when you were young. I *learned* English that way. Actually, reading the Car Wars Vehicule Guide 1. So by the time I was twelve, I had an unequaled command of vocabulary pertaining to cars parts, electric engines, and vehicular weaponry. But little grammar. My teachers weren't impressed. However it did help few years later when I passed an oral exam which involved describing a figure. It was a native trapper. I could pull out terms such as "top hat", "fur vest", "leather belt", "musket", "powder horn"... thanks to RPG gear lists... I remember we really botched English D&D terms pronunciation with our French accent. We rolled "funballs" on 1s, played in the "Forgotten Releems", and don't get me started on getting percentile "strengt", "strengf", or "strenx".

  • 03:49 PM - Imaro mentioned Morrus in post 5e Warlord Demand Poll
    Morrus said nothing of other classes except for rangers. And I seem to recall that part of the reason for the creation of the sub-forum was not just a matter of their number but also as a way to contain the vitriol of the discussion surrounding the Warlord. People don't have to defend the ranger's right to exist as a class. So are we going to go down the list of every class? Seriously? I think if there was a class that rivaled the warlord in thread count he would have mentioned it... The fact that the number of threads for warlords could at one point fill its own subforum speaks volumes but ok, here we go again... Hey @Morrus do you have any insight into whether the psionic class threads have been as prolific as the warlord threads before Mystics were announced? Also, I'm sure a new class for comparison will arise once we get the answer for psionics...

    There’s no terms, but I’m just answering questions for now. Really hope they put out a printable version online for free.
  • 06:27 PM - R_J_K75 quoted Morrus in post In which I attempt a Waterdeep: Dragon Heist photoshoot
    I can't see anything explicit, unless it's buried somewhere deep. I imagine those more familiar with FR would be able to deduce that from context. I seem to remember that it wasnt specific to a date as they wanted people to be able to use it regardless of when their game took place, thats why I was curious.
  • 05:53 PM - gyor quoted Morrus in post In which I attempt a Waterdeep: Dragon Heist photoshoot
    There's no mention of a Plinth in the Trades Ward section. There's a brief (half page) section on Character Backgrounds where it recommends appropriate choices from SCAG, and a few noble houses to use with the noble or Waterdavian noble backgrounds. There's also Guild Membership, and Faction Membership (Began D'aerthe, Emerald Enclave, Force Grey, Harpers, Lord's Alliance, Order of the Gauntlet, Xanathar Guild, Zhentarim). There's a sidebar on tracking renown. Interesting so they added 3 new faction to the 5 preexisting ones. Perhaps we will get more in future products.
  • 04:00 PM - MechaTarrasque quoted Morrus in post In which I attempt a Waterdeep: Dragon Heist photoshoot
    There's about 30 pages of monsters and NPCs. Mainly NPCs rather than monsters. I like the drow gunslinger, the gazer, and the walking statues of Waterdeep. I like NPC's too. Thank you.
  • 02:18 PM - gyor quoted Morrus in post In which I attempt a Waterdeep: Dragon Heist photoshoot
    There's no single list of temples that I can find, unless I'm missing it. But there's a few pages on Wards, and there are temples mentioned in the text. The Sea Ward mentions House of Wonder, House of the Moon, Tower of Luck, Temple of Beauty, House of Inspired Hands. I'm not really (as in at all) a FR scholar;I don't know what the Plinth is or where to look for it. Sorry! Dunno! That would involve parsing the entire text for keywords. :) It'd be in the Trade Ward, it is an Interdenominational Temple, which is likely why any acolytes of none evil deities get the full benefits of their background feature in Waterdeep (if it has been rebuilt, it got destroyed in 4e). Also is there a section on backgrounds or renown in the book?
  • 11:06 AM - pukunui quoted Morrus in post In which I attempt a Waterdeep: Dragon Heist photoshoot
    That is a thing I can do. One-and-a-half pages, CR 17. She's depicted wearing a robe of the archmagi (no armour or sword).Cool. Thanks. I wonder if maybe the mini preview I saw was mislabeled. Another question about her: Does she still have Spellfire? On a different note, how much of the book is adventure and how much of it is a guide to Waterdeep? And are there actually any "generic" rules for running city-based games?

  • 06:53 PM - Satyrn quoted Morrus in post Data science investigations into the mechanics of the world's greatest role playing game
    This is... interesting! https://github.com/cyberscribe/d20datascience#d20datascience I'll leave it to better mathematicians than I to unpack, but after plugging in AC, hit mods, HP, damage, and a ton of other stuff, cyberscribe on github seems to conclude that AC and hit mod, and inititiative, don't matter much (except in extremes), but damage and HP are of high importance. "In short, an entity's ability to deliver damage (dam_max) rapidly and take damage over time without dying (hp) are the most significant controlling factors in combat success, and should be considered as the most influential when determining creature challenge rating." Interestingly, the DMG already calls those out as the two key factors in determining CR.

  • 09:44 AM - Tonguez quoted Morrus in post Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD Tabletop RPG Kickstarter Coming Next Month!
    To clarify: *this* book is the core rules of the game and contains setting information for Mega-City One. Future setting books/adventures will include things like Slaine and Nemesis, using the rules in this core rulebook. Florix Grabundae, that makes a lot of sense. Just another question I understand that the focus of the game is for PCs to be Judges and that includes Psi-Division, but I wonder does the rule set allow for PCs as Perps or as Mutants in the Cursed Earth? (or will that come after Strontium Dog)

  • 01:36 PM - David Anderson Jr quoted Morrus in post Super Hero style game
    Could you not just extend the mutant powers to higher than the three "levels" they currently have? That would work, but for the game that I would want to run the PCs would need access to more than 1 power. If I'm reading N.O.W. correctly, and I very well might not be, following the current character creation path allows for only 1 mutant power. I would like to see my players have access to 2 or 3 powers. That's what I've been working on.

    We'll use the best/cheapest shippings option we can. Australia is a long way away, but we'll do our best. Don't forget New Zealand (it's even further away!). I think there is a company that deals with distribution around Australia/New Zealand - Aetherworks? They've been used by other Kickstarter projects.

    That happened months ago. It's gratifying that haven't noticed it until today. For what it's worth, I noticed it at the time it changed, and it's definitely irritating, but not to the point that I'd come here to complain about it, especially if it helps pages load significantly faster. I'll add my discontent to the thread/name/level/badges changes, however. The rest I could probably get used to... losing the badges stings a little

    Its how we always do our Kickstarters. It’s designed to ensure nobody has to wait months for their rewards; it’s guaranteed and risk free. In other words, we take the risk on ourselves and shell out for development rather than passing it on to the customer, as in a regular Kickstarter, and just fund the print runs. In this case, “finished” means the books are done, and we have our proof copies, but the KS will pay for the print run to get them out to you. When the KS ends, we order the print run an ship right away. No waiting! No chance of non-fulfilment. Cheers Morrus, that makes sense.

    It is a demonstrable point in the UX field that initial negative feedback is not as helpful as you might think. In the short term, humans typically react negatively to change they don't themselves initiate. The real question will be how folks feel about it in a few weeks or so, after the shock of unannounced change wears off. That happened months ago. It's gratifying that haven't noticed it until today. I'm having trouble reconciling these two posts. It would seem that we are supposed to wait a few weeks before posting any complaints to make sure they are legitimate and not just a hostile reaction to change, but also that if we wait to long to say we don't like something it is disregarded as not being important because it wasn't brought up soon enough.
