    We don't see enough to know if his senses engaged. And, Peter went to ash in the Big Snap too. If Peter is back, there's no known reason for Fury to not be back. Yes, it could be Mysterio makes illusions of villains, and then fights the illusions. Or, it is possible that the Elementals and Mysterio are all bad, but after the same thing - in the comics the Elementals were trying to...

    Fair, though as I recall, previous versions of the 5e SRD had more limited content, more akin to what's in Basic. I glanced at the license, but I didn't probe into the content yesterday. If you wanna be really picky, WotC uses version 1.0a, released in 2000. I was not confident enough that *NO OTHER* versions existed out there to assert such.

    Classically - illusions are what he does. Well, again classically, there's a group of extradimensional villains from the comics called the Elementals. We have the basic question of whether they are actually here, or if they are something Mysterio cooked up for him to be a hero fighting. I don't expect other cameos of note, as they won't want to reveal who survives Avengers:...

    If you want an example of a world without an open gaming license, look back historically to TSR (owner of D&D prior to Wizards of the Coast) and their positions on D&D compatible content in the early and mid-1990s -- it was an environment where they insisted that anything that included even terminology now common in the genre (such as phrases like "hit points" or "armor class") became property of...

    Leska is motivated by a loathing of pretty much everyone, which turned into a desire to have power over everyone. Her personal goal is conquest for the sake of conquest, and she's just using Coaltongue's death as a justification to rally her people into 'finding the ones responsible.' Also a bit of 'make a show of force so no one thinks we're weak.' Since there's not a ton of long-distance...

    The OGL isn't the "3E" OGL or the "5E" OGL. There's just the OGL. And it hasn't been dumped, because it's non-rescindable. Both 3E and 5E have had some (but not all) of their content released under it, as have many other games. One of the main purposes of the OGL, as Ryan Dancey - its architect - said: it means that D&D is here to stay. Nothing can make it go away, not even the whims of a...

    *Basic* 5e was released under the OGL, which to a quick scan doesn't appear particularly different from past OGLs. Rather than changing the control by changing the OGL, they did so by limiting content in the SRD - the basic mechanics are all there, but many of the classes are missing. So, anyone can write to the system, and even do something interesting with large changes (like Mutants and...

    I'm going to guess that a simple photographs of what already exists, a scene that could be seen by someone walking by, is *not* going to be considered transformative. After all, the architect and the artist probably were considering the setting, so the "juxtaposition" is their thought before it is the photographer's. For it to be transformative, you need to take a *small* segment of it, and...

    Let try an example to ensure we are all reading the table right. So lets assume you need a 5 or better to hit, and do an average of 10 dmg before the feat is applied. So the formula is 5.5 - .25X. So that 5.5 - .25 * 10 = 5.5 - 2.5 = 3. So this means that my average damage increases by 3. Now where I'm confused is when you defined average damage. So for example if I had a greatsword...

    It depends on whether you were using that very abusive Unearthed Arcana system, where you rolled 9d6 (keep the best three) for your INT, etc. Most of the time, our groups used the ones from the DMG, most often either 3d6 12 times (keep best six scores) or 4d6 for each score, drop lowest.

    I have to agree -- in 1e, sleep was keyed to hit dice (which never change) instead of to hit points (which constantly change), meaning in D&D5 you can whittle a foe into sleep territory. Get them down to their last 20 or 30 hit points, and you can end the fight early. Not to mention, darts were quite frankly crap in the 1e days, 3 attacks or not.

    I understand. One can naively think, 'Well I can use any frame of reference I want. I could use Twin A's frame, or Twin B's frame. Each can think the other is moving." That's why I introduce a frame that is not dependent on the Twins, and measure *both* of them relative to that. In my example, the reference frame in which Earth is at rest*. It happens that one of my Twins stays at rest...

    Okay, finished a thing. I can take a moment on this. The trick is to not think of this as "one twin stays at home, and one flies out for a while". Think of it as "one twin stays at home, the other goes to a place and comes back" Imagine that we have twins. One stays on Earth, and the other is sent to Alpha Centauri, 4 light years away. They will travel at 0.8c. We will assume that...

    We definitely need a non-American thread about Discovery etc. at some point, because they're always mainly about American streaming packages. Makes it tough to actually discuss the show online.

    Fantasy Grounds has sent me over some graphs showing the top games played on its virtual tabletop platform throughout the whole of 2018. Unsurprisingly, the top three are D&D 5th Edition (67%), Pathfinder (12%), and Savage Worlds (5%). These are followed by Starfinder, D&D 3.5, Call of Cthulhu, D&D 4E, Star Wars, then Pathfinder 2. The figures are much the same as we've seen previously, with an...

    I can't say that something is *impossible*. But, to be frank, it is not "fantasy" to think that there are limits. Warping space requires energies on par with the mass-energy of a thing that would produce similar warping. Individuals carrying around a power-pack equivalent to the mass-energy of mountains and small planets? Highly unlikely. The darned thing would be prone to collapse into a...

    The best (for me, anyway) implementations of such in D&D-like games I have seen ran as follows: No critical fumbles for anyone. PCs can make critical hits. Primary bad guys - like "named NPCs" or end-bosses that have a reasonable chance of appearing more than once - may be able to make critical hits. Basically, as a GM, I can always adjust my encounters beforehand to take into...

    Sure. Rub it in, whydon'tcha. :7 I love Trek, dearly. Up until ST:Disco I have watched every episode of live-action trek ever produced. But, I didn't want to support the idea that I'd pay for a whole streaming service for just one show, so I have yet to see any of it. But, on the flip side, giving me a *ton* of Trek doesn't help, if that Trek is crappy. I would prefer them to...

  • 04:14 AM - Cognomen's Cassowary mentioned Morrus in post D&D Promises to Make the Game More Queer
    Morrus : As somebody who sings with the local LGBTQ chorus (as an ally--I don't want to claim my collaborators' experiences as my own), who has played D&D with at least four LGBTQ individuals, and who has heard a smattering of the stories of exclusion--people who can't take their spouses to family reunions, others who can only go home for Christmas if they accept being called by the wrong name and the wrong pronouns--I personally thank you for confronting bigotry where you see it and for making enworld an inclusive community.

  • 12:13 AM - Quickleaf mentioned Morrus in post What resources do you track in play?
    Morrus I was tracking renown/reputation in our Night Below / Out of the Abyss mashup campaign. Not exactly a resource, but here's an example of what I did with my own adaptation of the Renown rules from the DMG/PHB: Renown (Cairngorm’s Hollow) Renown 1: PCs get offers of free services, sporadic free room & board, occasional offers of marriage, or small gifts like a few chickens or a goat. Renown 2: PCs get consistent free room & board, preferential treatment by guards who overlook minor infractions, and access to special quests from Lady Nydaridien. (land deed, Calrow Ruins). Renown 3: PCs treated as villagers and brought in on village ritual practices and voting, free modest lifestyle in village, Lady Nydaridien gives free use of horses in livery stables. Renown 4: PCs receive discounts on special purchases, and are afforded the same level of respect as village elders and Lady Nydaridien herself, gain access to dryad Wyra’s spellcasting service and special downtime activity involving...

  • 06:47 PM - LordEntrails mentioned Morrus in post WotC Names 10 "Adepts" On Their DMs Guild Store
    So, back to the topic at hand (Sorry Morrus, replied before I saw your post to move on. I was quite ... put out about the comment I quoted and posted on to read all the replies before replying myself.). I do agree with the previous comment that I don't see how this helps build community. It might help give confidence to new people as to how to find good content, but I'm still not sure about that. IMO, good reviews and ratings, and perhaps a few trustworthy bloggers doing detailed reviews might actually help much more than this. But, at least it's something. Kudos to WotC to adapting and trying new things. They've been doing much more of this (trying new things) since the inception of 5E, and the pace is only quickening.

  • 05:00 PM - Ath-kethin mentioned Morrus in post How long have you been gaming?
    My starting point was the tabletop boardgame HeroQuest, back in 1990 or '91. Then my mom bought me a copy of ICE's Middle Earth Roleplaying Game around '92 and I couldn't make heads or tails of it. In '93 my friend bought a copy of Earthdawn, and from that point I was hooked. A year and a half later I was introduced to D&D (or more specifically, AD&D 2nd Edition) and that was that. @Morrus: I've been teaching my 3-1/2 year old the basics, moving in through the old D&D cartoon and the new Tales of Equestria game (and HeroQuest), so newbies exist. It will just be a while until he can spell well enough to join ENWorld.

    Heh, I like it, but I have no idea what the recipe for virtual gunpowder would be. Also, does that make @Morrus a Metron? @Morrus is an Organian, for sure. As for virtual gunpowder, you might want to try remodulating the transmogrifiers that govern the recplicator database. Or remove the field dampers on an EMH emitter and beam the stuff out of the holodeck. Both of those have worked for me in the past.

    Okay, everyone - here's what to do. Make sure your speakers are on and open this link in another tab. Go ahead. It's nothing creepy and it's safe for work. Once you've got that going - do it! - come back here. Cool. You're back. Now imagine the scene, folks: oneshot and aramis erak on Cestus III, squaring off against one another as the Metrons look on...or, in this case, as the rest of us watch them spar over dice mechanics. I'll bring the pink and green space marshmallows (ala' the buffet in Journey to Babel) and we'll see who wins the dice mechanic stats championship grudge match. Heh, I like it, but I have no idea what the recipe for virtual gunpowder would be. Also, does that make Morrus a Metron?

  • 05:43 AM - Flips mentioned Morrus in post Combat Questions
    Thank you all with your replies. We just thought that a mirror match would give us a "balanced" fight between two sets of combatants. I guess you are right, I had thought that Selena was more of a blaster than she really is, and seeing the retooled version give a good example of how a more "blaster" focused character would look. Although I agree with IvyMike about the adage, damage is one way that people tend to compare magical power. Morrus: I know it isn't trying to be D&D, but I know that this system is meant to be quite flexible to be able to work in many different settings. If we were trying to more accurately replace the higher magic setting, other than increasing the MP slightly, do you have any suggestions about how to rescale the damage progression? Thanks again so much. Everyone's answers have been very helpful.

    For Morrus or anyone who deals with such things: In case it matters, it seems that editing the initial post in a wiki thread does not bounce the thread to the top of the thread list (by timestamp order) the same way adding a new post does. The risk here is that some wiki threads that may be often edited and-or referred to but not often posted to (e.g. the Convention List wiki in general RPG discussion) risk falling off the first page - and thus being forgotten or missed by casual or infrequent visitors - unless they are stickied.

  • 04:12 PM - DMMike mentioned Morrus in post What system would you use for gritty fantasy?
    Morrus, have you checked out ZWEIHANDER Grim & Perilous RPG yet? It ticks off all of the major themes of a grim, gritty game. It even has a 35 page morally grey adventure in the core book, if you want something that can be ran quickly without a lot of preparation required. Dang. He beat me to it. I'd recommend Modos 2, which I'm trying to get into the ENWorld downloads section this month. Because: - Characters are quick to make - about as long as this post. So creation-to-play time is minimized. - Character durability runs in the teens to twenties, while the average two-handed weapon does d10 damage. - PCs have options when they run out of health. Wounds, scars, and disease are among them. So is death. - Light rules and short character sheets mean that the GM doesn't spend a lot of time turning pages, so there's less prep investment in a short campaign. - Each PC has a free-form "flaw," which can make things gritty right off the bat. Notes to Morrus: I'm assuming "gritty" m...

  • 09:57 PM - DQDesign quoted Morrus in post First Impressions – Guildmasters Guide to Ravnica
    In don’t think you as a publisher is the target audience of the book. It’s you as a gamer. Yes but I can't divide myself into two different creatures, so if the book is not worth buying for the 'publisher' (I would prefer 'amateur author') it is not also for the gamer :) That mostly because monetary resources are not limitless, at least in my case. Anyway I think no more than a few hundreds wotc customers are also dmsguild authors and most of them will buy the book anyway, I believe, so I don't see any particular worries in wotc about some few twisted individuals like me :)
  • 03:31 PM - DQDesign quoted Morrus in post First Impressions – Guildmasters Guide to Ravnica
    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. As I said, it is mostly due to their low level of transparence. And, also if my products don't sell so much on the guild, with the 50% share wotc already gained much more from me than selling a single one shot book.
  • 03:12 PM - DQDesign quoted Morrus in post First Impressions – Guildmasters Guide to Ravnica
    Did you buy D&D books before DMs Guild existed? Yes... why? Anyway at that time I focused more on 3rd party products with the largest possible amount of open content because at that time I considered OGL being the best thing in the industry.
  • 02:58 PM - DQDesign quoted Morrus in post First Impressions – Guildmasters Guide to Ravnica
    Out of curiosity, why? Because I think that DMs Guild is the best innovative element in 5th edition D&D, a real game changer in the industry (evidence of that is the flourishing of dozens of similar programs, including WOIN syndicate, for example). So I will not spend my money on products which are not used as a basis to expand, empower and widen the program. I would re-consider that approach only in case of a significant change in wotc communication strategy, i.e. a serious improvement in their transparence level. For example, I could re-consider buying a not-supported DMs Guild setting if they would explain why they decided not to open the setting on the guild. Summarising, if information are not given, I'll stick with what I like and drop the rest (I'm little bit tired of guessing).

    Which book is that from? Is there a larger version? Not sure I remember. Don't think that's the one from the original box set. Halls of Undermountain maybe? (though I thought 4E had the cataclysm damage) You can find larger versions with Google. No high res ones I know of as those would all still be protected.

  • 11:10 PM - squibbles quoted Morrus in post The Goldilocks Poll: How Magic is 5e?
    The use of the terms high magic and low magic are pretty nebulous. Does the high/low spectrum apply to the rarity of magic or to the power of magic? Does it apply mainly to PCs or to the implied setting that they live in? In my definition of low magic, magic can be powerful but it is infrequently used by PCs and does not feature prominently in the implied setting. Thus, imo, 5e is very high magic. That said, I would agree that D&D is a very high magic genre.

    Mearls answered this question on Twitter, describing at length how the D&D 4th edition he wanted to make differed from the one which was actually published back in 2008. Morrus, can you update this link to the actual thread? Right now it just goes to Mike's Twitter page, and I can't find the quoted passages there.
  • 10:41 AM - Jhaelen quoted Morrus in post Mike Mearls on how 4E could have looked
    I wanted classes to have different power acquisition schedules, and more thematic ties between power types.That's something I wouldn't have liked (and hated about the Essential classes). Imho, it was one of the greatest achievements of 4e to make all classes equally complex by using the same mechanical framework. Yeah, it’s brilliant at what it focused on. Best take on D&D combat across all editions.At least he's acknowledging that! I kind of agree that the skill challenge system was initially underdeveloped and they tried to hard to fill a matrix of roles and power sources. I would’ve much preferred the ability to adopt any role within the core 4 by giving players a big choice at level 1, an option that placed an overlay on every power you used or that gave you a new way to use them.That's an interesting take. I would have liked to see how that might have worked. I never quite understood why there had to be zero overlap between the powers used by the different classes. I think th...

    Even if you were supposed to roll it, how did you manage to roll 48 on 6d6? I don't know why I did it, but for some reason a set of 2d6 was 1, so it was actually 12d6. Which for some reason I thought of THAT as 6d6. I really don't know what I was thinking. Now I got a headache. lol

    Yikes. No, you don't roll it. Your SPEED is 6: 3(d6) + 2(d6) + 1(d6). it's the *size* of your dice pool, not a roll of your dice pool. Your CLIMB is 3 (half your SPEED without the running added on, rounded up). Ah okay. I knew I did something wrong. Thanks.

    Hmm. Where does it say that? That looks like a minor errata. Page 18 under CHARACTER CREATION WALKTHROUGH Step 4.1 "Apply all of the listed attribute adjustments. Note that you may optionally substitute either one of your species attributes or your hook attributefor one of the listed attributes." So I read this as you choose which attribute you can use but you cant use both.

    They're not just "some exceptions" to be casually dismissed. D&D has had a rich history of competitive and tournament play for 40 years. I've never engaged with it, but I've been aware of it. They have always been a side element, played with the understanding that the rules are not balanced around competitive play. Much like speed runs of classic video games show what can be done with practice to break and exploit the system, but that is not how most people enjoy engaging with Mario, Etc.
