    Early on there were two - DEFENSE, and MENTAL DEFENSE. Then there were three - MELEE, RANGED, and MENTAL, and so it meant MELEE and RANGED. Now there are four, but it still means MELEE and RANGED. It's a little historical remnant which could probably be done away with.

    It's a good question, and something which completely slipped through playtesting! I would, on reflection, say that immunity overrides vulnerability, so you'd end up immune to both.

If what you are saying is true, you’ve been seriously assaulted by somebody who should be in prison. I don't really know what to say.

    Dentists aren’t usually on the NHS, and we rarely have dental insurance. My dentist is private and I pay for everything. $80 sounds quite reasonable.

    IANAD, but periodontal maintenance probably means you have gum disease, which can be halted/held at bay by ongoing maintenance but the damage can't be reversed. Those 20 years without visiting a dentist is probably when that set in.

    See Burst attacks on page 99. Area attacks use a single attack roll (in this case AGI (throwing) or similar) vs VITAL DEFENSE of all targets, and a single damage roll. Otherwise it is resolved just like any other attack roll.

    It's not like a car. It's much more subjective and much more of an art. You can directly and objectively measure a car's horsepower or weight, but you can't do that with an RPG. I don't think anything can substitute for actually trying the thing. All the graphs in the world won't give you a sense of how you feel when you play the game.

  • 03:43 AM - Maxperson mentioned Morrus in post Chaotic Good Is The Most Popular Alignment!
    I think there was an archiving effort here, and possibly elsewhere? Don’t know how much it got. I have no idea where they would be. Maybe Morrus knows where the D&D Forum archive are, if they are here.

  • 12:20 AM - Hussar mentioned Morrus in post Chaotic Good Is The Most Popular Alignment!
    I gotta agree with Morrus on the whole CN thing. Thing is, most people, really, are lawful by D&D standards. They follow rules, they work (reasonably well) in groups every day and generally aren't out there to stir things up. Funny thing is, I think most players choose CN because they don't want to allow the DM to have any hooks into their behavior. It's really a shame that 5e ejected "unaligned" because, frankly, I think that's what most folks mean when they say CN. Sorry, but, if your chaotic neutral character is 100% responsible and trustworthy, he's not actually CN.

  • 05:08 PM - lowkey13 mentioned Morrus in post Let's Talk About THAC0
    THAC0 is clearly preferable to BAB, for two reasons. One, it sounds cooler, and closer to the action of hitting. THAC0. It's an aptonym. Second, it is easier. As Morrus has repeatedly explained to the rest of you, addition is easier. With THACO, you are always adding. With BAB, you have to constantly subtract negative numbers. So NOT ONLY do you have to use subtraction (OH NOES!), you ALSO have to subtract negative numbers. I swear, if I ever have to subtract the negative of the proficiency again .... Stop bowing to the tyranny of math.

    Alright, it's officail, set for November: "Baldur's Gate III is among the list of over 30 games currently confirmed to be available day one on Google Stadia. That list--which can be viewed below--may change as we approach Stadia's November 2019 release date." https://www.gamespot.com/articles/baldurs-gate-3-announced-for-google-stadia/1100-6467362/ Morrus unsure if this is relevant to the news for the site, but there it is.

    Any ETA on when this will be fixed?...I don't want to be seen as blatantly abusing anything. Is there alternative method I can use to report posts in the mean time? No timetable as yet, AFAIK. Perhaps Morrus could make a glitch announcement and ask that reports be PMed to The Mod Squad?* https://www.memorabletv.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/the-mod-squad.jpg Or, for those unconcerned with anonymous reporting, posting it in Meta? * not pictured: any actual ENWorld Mods.

  • 07:44 AM - Dannyalcatraz mentioned Morrus in post Completely Blank Posts?
    Morrus Umbran darjr As I noted above, I’ve personally encountered two blacked out posts by spammers (whom I subsequently banned). The text wasn’t merely color matched to the back, because the reported text didn’t show even when I quoted it to check. What had been there was simply gone. Something odd is going on.

  • 04:58 AM - Maxperson mentioned Morrus in post Is RPGing a *literary* endeavour?
    That they are dancing is more about content than description. The thing that makes the scene more interesting is that the kobolds are dancing for some reason, not how the GM describes the dance It's not, or at least it's not entirely content. Dancing is a description of what the kobolds are doing up on the hill. Dancing is also content. This brings me back(again) to the point I made pages ago. Both qualitative description AND content are both necessary to make an interesting scene. One without the other is going to be dull. Also not sure why my posts keep including that quote I think it has something to do with multiquoting. Zardnaar was driving Morrus crazy with it in a thread recently. Maybe one of them could help you figure out how to stop quoting it.

    Same as Morrus , a close vote. Many fond memories of 2E, but 3E coming along and "modernizing" things we had houseruled for 2E anyway, makes it my favorite. At least at the beginning.

  • 05:57 PM - Parmandur mentioned Morrus in post New D&D Adventure Reveal On 17th May at 'The Descent'
    https://www.renaud-bray.com/Livres_Produit.aspx?id=2843418&def=Dungeons+%26+Dragons+Essentials+Kit+(D%26D+Boxed+Set)%2cCOLLECTIF%2c9780786966837 Seems like we were both wrong on the Box Set. The site lists the dice and miscellany separate from this: The Essentials Kit. So maybe a new revised version of the starter set, but not Eberron specific it seems. Well, the name to me suggests maybe more of a neo-Expert Set: not an intro product, but a second product for folks who bought the Starter Set and want more. Something for folks with no FLGS, who buy their Magic & DnD stuff at Target or whatnot. Morrus more grist for the mill.
  • 05:12 PM - Parmandur mentioned Morrus in post New D&D Adventure Reveal On 17th May at 'The Descent'
    So looks like we were spot on with the Adventure book. "Baldur's Gate: Descent Into Avernus" https://www.renaud-bray.com/Livres_Produit.aspx?id=2843417&def=Dungeons+%26+Dragons+Baldur%27s+Gate%3A+Descent+Into+Avernus+Hardcover+Book+(D%26D+Adventure)%2CCOLLECTIF%2C9780786966769 One correct. 3 more to go. Shout out to Parmandur for being on the Baldurs Gate connection before anyone! Boom! They just kept talking about Baldur's Gate, and getting way too detailed. Interestign that the name pattern matches "Waterdeep: Dragon Heist." Morrus might warrant a new story for your front page.

  • 06:05 PM - Drekin quoted Morrus in post Current state of Armor skills
    For reference, final errata in v1.2 includes this: - just one skill, "armor" - dice reduce DEF penalties for heavier armor - basically means don't need skill for light armor, but, hey, anybody can wear a leather jacket - heavy armor getting a slight SOAK boost, and the electricity vulnerability reduced to half rather than full Is this still the latest change?

  • 11:55 AM - Imaculata quoted Morrus in post I think my dentist is ripping me off.
    In other news, I have never heard of a dentist who would do a filling without a local anaesthetic. Getting a filling done does not hurt as much as people think. It's not fun, but it beats having to deal with the feeling of a numb jaw long after your visit to the dentist. There's plenty of dentists that will do a filling in the Netherlands without an anaesthetic, but these days they always offer to give you one. I tend to decline. When I grew up none of the dentists gave you one for a simple filling, you just had to endure it.

    Zardnaar watched Marathon Man’s torture scene and thought “I can do that!” In other news, I have never heard of a dentist who would do a filling without a local anaesthetic. Haven't seen it stopped using painkillers a few years back. Didn't like the side effects and most pain fades quickly.

    Zardnaar watched Marathon Man’s torture scene and thought “I can do that!” In other news, I have never heard of a dentist who would do a filling without a local anaesthetic. The problem was that the doctor did it wrong. He missed with the needle of Novocaine. Numbed part of my face and jaw, but that tooth still had sensation. He ignored me when I tried to tell him I could feel everything and it HURT. He said I was faking it and being dramatic, and when I tried to resist, he had his hygienist physically hold me down while he drilled one of my molars and filled it. He thought because my tongue was numb and I was talking funny from the novocaine having numbed part of my face, that the tooth had to be numb too and I was lying about feeling it all as he drilled in. That was a quarter century ago. Still remember it vividly. It's why, aside from mandatory dental checkups in the Army (where they said they saw no issue requiring treatment, my last one being about a year before I ...
  • 07:50 PM - wingsandsword quoted Morrus in post I think my dentist is ripping me off.
    Sounds to me like your insurance is the problem, not the dentist. Remember that healthcare, including dentistry, in the US is almost entirely profit driven. If a dentist can find a way to justify extra visits, at a more expensive billing code, they may very well use them. Rather than 2 visits a year at ~$70 each, billing for 4 visits a year at ~$180 each and telling the patient it's medically necessary (as long as they can find some plausible way to justify that to the insurance company, even if it's not strictly needed) is something many dentists would do here. That way the dentist would be making about 5 times more off me a year than they would with normal, standard 2x/year cleanings that wouldn't cost me anything out-of-pocket from my insurance. That's from his end, that's making $140 off me a year vs. making $720 off me a year. From my end with my current insurance (which costs me about $80/month for dental insurance, which is completely separate from health insurance), ...

  • 03:49 PM - wingsandsword quoted Morrus in post I think my dentist is ripping me off.
    IANAD, but periodontal maintenance probably means you have gum disease, which can be halted/held at bay by ongoing maintenance but the damage can't be reversed. Those 20 years without visiting a dentist is probably when that set in. Except every appointment after the first they say I'm fine, have no problems, have no issues ect. I've not heard one bad word about the shape of my teeth or gums since that first appointment. The first couple of appointments they said they were monitoring the status of things since I'd not been to a dentist in so long, but things were looking very good. Hence the extreme skepticism at this idea that I have to come in 4 times a year, for life, for extra expensive cleanings that my insurance won't pay. They aren't even telling me I'm in bad dental health, just that since I had this procedure done once, this is the way it has to be now.

    Absolutely. I posit that there is nothing on this earth as funny as The Germans. Or the Dead Parrot sketch. As much as I love the Dead Parrot, I have to give this match to “The Germans”. But even then, I have seen things I thought were funnier than that...for a few minutes. Few are as overall as funny as that episode, though, and 4 of them were movies.

  • 08:41 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted Morrus in post Geekdom Takes a Bow
    Can't argue there. They're both capable of being witty and laugh-so-hard-you-cry funny. "The Germans" is possibly the funniest television episode in existence. Blackadder is second only to Fawlty Towers. There is literally nothing even close to being as funny as those two things.
  • 08:19 PM - Dannyalcatraz quoted Morrus in post Geekdom Takes a Bow
    Blackadder is second only to Fawlty Towers. There is literally nothing even close to being as funny as those two things. I might flip those, but I loved both. They’d both be in my top BritCom list, but they wouldn’t be in the top 2 slots. Monte Python is my #1, for many reasons- it was my gateway drug into British comedy, for instance. Saw The Holy Grail on one of its first US broadcastings, before I found D&D.
