    As the stealth against the dragon example earlier shows, there are a lot more tools than you might think. But even barring that, Dnd is a game of imagination, of course there are tools. If the party is going against Grazzt, the idea is not that they "just go against Grazzt". They do research, they contain powerful allies. That's when they go....ok I want to research....is there any defense...

    I would love a book that covers the very common and classic troupes that many many groups experience. Example: Barbarian says "I want to break down the door!". Having a table of good DC for various door types....or for the crazy people who try to break down the wall around the door because the door is too well made. Chases are a thing the DMG covers a bit, but there is more to do there. ...

    So my thoughts. Favored Enemy: I like the idea of "I am focusing all of my skill on this one target" as opposed to "I have studied a group of creatures I may or may not encounter in any adventures in the future". I will say just the fact that I will effectively have advantage on all of my insight rolls against most people is a pretty solid bonus. I think the extra attacks are a little...

    In principle, I love Undermountain, and want to introduce my groups to it in the future. In practice, I have concerns that mega-dungeons currently will get very tiring quickly, and my groups won't have patience for them. I think this one solves the problem by having different environments via gates and teleports to other areas.

    In the Battletech and Mechwarrior universe, someone did calculations and figured out that mechs as drawn are actually less dense than water. My headcanon for ZEITGEIST is that Borne's made of adamantine that was magically alloyed with other metals, sort of like how adding a bit of carbon to iron makes steel. Without magic he'd collapse, but he's so suffused with magic he's impossible to dispel.

    That's okay. Understanding may be achievable. Consider - fights are not the only thing in a D&D game. If a player (or group of players) is really interested in some aspect of the game other than fights, then maybe having the fights be deadly is not leading the players to their fun very well.

    I think it might be more clear to say, a prescriptivist thinks we have rules for language that we must follow. A descriptivist feels the rules describe the language as it currently is[, and that as use changes, the rules will change. There is a better view, IMHO. Right now, short term, if you want to be understood, you should follow the rules. Long term, it is empirically shown that...

    Not necessarily, no. Specifically, there are games where you do not take on a role of one of the characters and all players have sway over all characters within the narrative. This would not be a role-playing game, but would be a story-telling game. You see, this is a problem with making definitions - you need to consider the *entire space* within which you are making your definition. ...

    Great list! I agree with you on Forgetful and Spendthrift. You can use skills with any attribute as long as the GM agrees, so intimidation and Disfigured would be a good combo for a strong character. A STR (intimidation) check with the disfigured trait would be a good combo.

    That being said... "the rules are descriptive" is insufficient as a definition. If nothing else, it fails to differentiate role-playing games from story-telling games, which I expect we would find are also descriptive. It probably also fails to differentiate from some forms of simulation games - like SimCity, where within a domain, you are largely allowed to do whatever you darn well feel like....

    I think pointing out that there are some actions that are not allowed is missing the point. Yes, my character doesn't have the wings, spells, or magic items that allow them to fly, so they cannot fly. That doesn't make the game suddenly 100% prescriptive. I think the central point is still there - if you are playing chess, you have a list of allowed moves, and *everything else* is...

    To me it comes down to presentation. If the party goes into an area that is known to be fraught with heinous, over the top peril, than I would expect no surprise when said peril occurs. But I would't throw such a threat if they were just doing a diplomatic mission for example, as the peril would feel more arbitrary to me at that point.

    The key to the Solar is its 150 ft flying speed. Effectively unless you have a means of immobilizing it, it can kite indefinitely, or it can just teleport back 120 feet if necessary. So for an Empryean vs a Solar it comes down to Bolt vs Slaying Longbow. Overall, bolt has a +3 attack advantage (+2, and the Solar's AC is 1 lower) and gets to attack twice through the legendary action. Slaying...

Pemberton has secret knowledge that they don't manage to replicate during the span of the campaign. Like, we figured out how to make nukes 70 years ago, but some folks still have a hard time doing it. It's okay if the PCs can't do everything.

    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.

    Following an online backlash regarding the content of their recent publications, White Wolf Publishing has just announced some big changes, including the suspension of the Vampire 5th Edition Camarilla and Anarch books, and a restructuring of management. White Wolf's Shams Jorjani made the following announcement about an hour ago: "Hello everyone, My name is Shams Jorjani, VP of...

    Is the Purple Worm in this an important encounter plot-wise, or is it a random encounter? I love Desert of Desolation, but I can't remember specifically right now. If it's a random encounter, I might skip it or substitute a smaller version (maybe a 'baby' purple worm or variant species with a -2 to attacks, about 1 dice less damage, (about 3 dice less for the poison tail) and about 125 hp or so?...

    There's a creature in Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes called the Venom Troll that is a CR7 critter that can be DEVASTATING to even higher-level parties if a particular party is very melee-heavy and not ranged-attack-heavy. Every time the thing is hit with damage, acidic pustules pop and damage all creatures within 5 feet of it with poison damage. A party in melee with it is potentially damaging...

    Yeah if I was going to pick one it would be a flaming skull. A fireball to start the party against 4th level members is no joke. Combined with a fast flying speed that lets them evade danger they can be tough to take down.

    *sheepish* The XP is just to let you know I'm reading and eager to hear about your group's exploits. Re: Question 2, a wizard did it. It's like defending some VIPs with security guards. It's not hard if you have the manpower, but you don't have enough manpower to protect everyone the same way.

In addition to sending light to this world, they also deliver tiny amounts of magical energy, much as the planets in the solar system do (but the planets are closer and have a much larger effect).

  • 06:17 PM - CapnZapp mentioned Morrus in post I gotta ask: the "laugh" points, are they meant as appreciation or as mockery??
    Morrus: this issue doesn't go away. I'm going to report a series of my own posts where a user clicks laugh (yes, I know the button is called "laugh with this post") even though my remarks are not in any sense made with humor in mind. In short, I find it impossible to interpret this as anything else than mockery. I am writing this post because I know you are busy and might have a mod handle the reporting, so you might not even see the series of reported posts. (I need to post this first so I can include a link in my reports for your moderation convenience) If you or your mods redtext the user to stop abusing the laugh functionality all is well in the world. But I am ressurrecting this thread to clearly flag that it is not a new issue, and it remains a serious one. I've gotten dozens of laugh points I could have done well without, and I feel that if I do not bring thus back up to your attention it will never stop. I can't be alone in getting these points that only burn. If y...

  • 08:06 AM - Ancalagon mentioned Morrus in post Let's Look At Alchemy In Pathfinder 2!
    There was apparently a podcast that divulged more information (I don't have a link at the moment) - Alchemical items have "levels" from 1 to 20 - Bombs were supposed to require two hands to use, but that's being changed to one hand Also from the comments, PF2 will NOT use item weight, but a "bulk" system similar to Star finder. Another comment is that alchemists can get more resonance, which is rather important because they need it to use magical items AND wield alchemy. The start of day items, as you guys have guessed, are subsidized for a better rate if you can predict ahead of time which items you will need and make duplicates. Plus, the alchemist gets a class feature that adds extra resonance and scales, Intel for you Morrus ! :)

    Hello Morrus - My understanding is that the block feature is two-way. If I block someone, I can't see their posts or respond to them and vice versa. While that does appear to be working for posters that have blocked me, it does not appear to be the case for posters I have blocked. They have been able to view and quote my posts and I have also received PMs from posters I have blocked. Would you kindly take a look at this for me? Thanks in advance for your help.

    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.

    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.

    One question about the bad guy — why didn’t he just send Rosa Parks back in time? He couldn’t harm her, but he could send people back in time. Seems a much easier way to accomplish his aims. I can just see it. Rosa Parks arrives to the moment the very first slave ship arrives to America, and somehow ends up ending slavery on the continent before it even begins. :p

    It was very good, with some excellent performances. I felt it was let down a little by the villain himself, who just felt a bit like a placeholder, but the primary cast was excellent. It felt like it needed some kind of epilogue to it, showing where/when he ended up, hopefully in some form of ironic-justice context. The fact that we didn't get one suggests that we may see him again.

    Yup. Me. I've never played M:tG, or even really seen it, but as a new setting for D&D this looks like fun. Yeah, same here, though I've played a few hands of Magic in my time. I've really enjoyed what WotC has been offering for the past few years, but this is easily the most bold and interesting looking product they've put out in a looking time.

  • 05:43 PM - Brian I quoted Morrus in post Looking for NEW players
    I mean, people are busy. If they showed interest, they may be able to play at a later date or whatever. They probably won’t now! :) I'd normally agree, for usual type campaigns. With a West Marches style game, the sense is after a month of not commenting, they weren't going to play. It was a bit odd, but it was well announced, and the minimum bar was pretty low for a Player: register at the campaign website and/or the discord server. There's folks who have done so, but aren't ready or able to play now. Folks were given advance notice, and invited to come back. It's been a very interesting (and fun) process regardless. I'm viewing it as learning experience, so how to better advertise, on-board, incentivize, etc. is all part of the deal. I totally appreciate knikpiw and the other members providing organizational help and such as well.

    I"m reading one now. It's only 4 pages of backstory, but it is *dense* with names and places and history. It very much feels like I'm doing schoolwork! Especially since it's 4 page of backstory and then about 16 pages of adventure. It feels like a history book. Reached a sentence with 4 different place names and two different character names in it. I keep re-reading it in the hope I can parse it! That's the Twitter/Internet effect. It's a sign that you should buy more newspapers.
  • 11:51 AM - CapnZapp quoted Morrus in post DnD Sports Changes Name To RPG Sports
    Was there something you’d like to say? We told you WotC was not running it. Whats so funny. I don't get it. Read it as nervous laughter and it makes more sense. In the prior announcement he has multiple posts essentially stating that 'of course WotC is involved' and probably being a little to forceful going after those with dissenting opinions. Foot, meet mouth. I will only talk for myself. I don't excuse anyone's impoliteness but I find his reaction quite natural and easy to understand. To me it's incredibly naive to use a brand name unlicensed, and one that is wholly unsuited to the intended purpose at that. Having to make such a sudden course correction begs the question: what where they thinking? But again, maybe that's just me.

  • 10:50 PM - MNblockhead quoted Morrus in post "DnDSports": Competitive Play With Prizes
    Hiya! First: Called it! ;) Second: There has always been "competitive play". Yes. One party goes through a module and gets points. Another party then does the same. Then another. And maybe a fourth. Which ever party scored the most points during the completion of the module wins. That was the "competition". I am not a aware of a single "adventure" that pitted two groups of players sitting across from one another in a Colosseum type setting where they try and kill each other. IMNSHO, trying to equate "D&D eSports Competition" and "AD&D Tournaments" from the late 70's and into the 80's is...disingenuous, to say the least. Both are COMPLETELY different methods for determining a 'winning side'. Third: [quote=Morrus] [Quote Originally Posted by DQDesign] totally agree. I'm seriously thinking about abandoning d&d for other TTRPGs. the standard ones, the ones with stories, friends and bucks far away from the table.[End DQDesign Quote] [Quote Originally Posted by Morrus] You want to abandon D&D because somebody else you've never met plays D&D differently to you?[End Morrus Quote] Morrus, I think what DQDesign was trying to intone was the overall D&D RPG Community and the potential to where D&D, as a RPG, could end up. It's not about "not playing my way". It's about bringing in a potentially overwhelming amount of people who are NOT "roleplayers" and are not actually interested in any of the "roleplaying". As this group increases, it would bring in more money and more and more voices asking for what they want. WotC is a company, owned by an evil faceless juggernaut who wants to expand and acquire more of everything (market share, money, IP's, etc). At some point, WotC would 'switch' t...
  • 02:13 AM - TerraDave quoted Morrus in post Fantasy Grounds Toolset Usage Report
    For those of us who don’t have a mathematical background (ie me)could you explain what that is? Its means winners really win. So, for example number 1 is twice as many as number 2 which is twice as many as number 3 and so on. What the plot shows, where 5E is actually above that orange line, is that its really really winning. Which some of us have been saying for a while. :p

  • 02:27 PM - Warpiglet quoted Morrus in post "DnDSports": Competitive Play With Prizes
    It seems like the rumours of D&D as e-sports weren't so far off after all in today's bit of unexpected news, as D&D Beyond and Encounter Roleplaying have announced DnDSports. "DnDSports is the first online D&D Tournament in a cooperative Party vs Party setting from Encounter Roleplay & DnDBeyond with a grand prize of $5,000." 102397 Here's the full announcement: Imagine if two parties fighting for opposite sides found themselves in the same dungeon. It’s kill or be killed. What will they do to survive? DnDSports is the first online D&D Tournament in a cooperative Party vs Party setting from EncounterRoleplay & DnDBeyond with a grand prize of $5,000. Over the course of 4 weeks, 16 players will compete in teams of 4 in single elimination games. Each game is a best of 3 arena battle and played via Roll20. How is it Played? The full rules for DnDSports will be released shortly after our next round of Playtesting. We don’t claim to have created perfect balance, nor is that our a...
  • 01:46 PM - Jay Verkuilen quoted Morrus in post Fantasy Grounds Toolset Usage Report
    For those of us who don’t have a mathematical background (ie me)could you explain what that is? The data have counts of games running with a particular ruleset. So 5E is the most common ruleset, followed by Pathfinder, followed by Savage Worlds, etc. The kind of mechanism that generates this pattern of counts is often thought of as representing "preferential attachment," A preferential attachment process is any of a class of processes in which some quantity, typically some form of wealth or credit, is distributed among a number of individuals or objects according to how much they already have, so that those who are already wealthy receive more than those who are not. This means a more popular ruleset has a higher chance of drawing a new entrant, with the probability being related to 1/rank. The Zipf distribution, and its relatives like the Mandelbrodt and Yule-Simon, are ways of quantifying counts over the rank order. If the Zipf distribution fit the plot of log(Count) on log(Rank) would ...
  • 09:36 AM - DQDesign quoted Morrus in post "DnDSports": Competitive Play With Prizes
    I've no idea if this is licensed in any way (there's no D&D logo or anything). However, the point of granting a license to somebody is to make money, not lose money. sure, I'm just saying that, luckily, no money can be made without any company effort. And I would like to see that effort invested in something more akin to good d&d books, not this sort of thousands-dollars-prize "TV" show. just because also for hasbro company effort has a cost, and the fact that they choose to invest it in esports instead of a new dnd campaign setting book worries me a lot, because it creates suspicion in me about the fact that they consider this esports thing more profitable than dnd books (at least in perspective).
  • 05:44 AM - DQDesign quoted Morrus in post "DnDSports": Competitive Play With Prizes
    You want to abandon D&D because somebody else you've never met plays D&D differently to you? no, just because the company which is lucky enough to manage the d&d brand spends the money I gave them buying books and through dmsguild royalty share doing this 'esport silly thing' instead of producing new settings and awesome d&d stories.
  • 03:50 AM - Leatherhead quoted Morrus in post "DnDSports": Competitive Play With Prizes
    You want to abandon D&D because somebody else you've never met plays D&D differently to you? Normally I would agree with this. What random person A does at their personal table has almost no bearing on the game as a whole. Celebrity Tables are a bit iffier, shows like Critical Role have thousands of eyes on them and cause ripples in the community, which in turn shapes the feedback on future developments. (They have a noticeable influence on Twitch, which owns D&D Beyond, one of the more popular online tools and sources of data-mining for D&D) However, Streamed Competitive Tables will garner feedback, it will be loud because there is money on the line, and it will become the new truth of D&D online communities. It won't negatively impact people like me (who poor over the material looking at the numbers even while they are in UA, and/or go off to make their own stuff) much, if at all. But it will have an impact on future products. And yes I am aware that tournaments have existed a...
