    To be fair to Blackwing, it may have worked, and Belkar is just being a bastard.

  • 04:34 PM - DMMike mentioned Dioltach in post Using a skill check to find a hidden forest trail
    @OP: If you want to make it a dice encounter, go ahead and require three different checks. If you want to quickly make the call and move the game along, just roll spot/perception/whathaveyou. If you want to roleplay, tell the PC he can gather information about the forest trail from the local hunters, the elusive ranger, or the ornery troll. And add three more decision points at each information source... Dioltach's signature: I'm pretty sure we say "not today!" But, remind me how I know that?

  • 10:12 PM - Jan van Leyden mentioned Dioltach in post tips for getting proof readers?
    I have pretty much the same question as Dioltach: what do you really want? Do you'd like to hear a second opinion, do you want your game edited, or does checking for errors suffice? And what do you want to do with your game? Sell it to a publishing company, publish it yourself, distribute it freely or just to your players?

  • 06:00 PM - Celebrim quoted Dioltach in post Iintesting ideas/monsters found in a Giant Spider Lair?
    Giant frogs: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiasmocleis_ventrimaculata Perhaps. But if the same scale of, "It's too small to be my dinner so I'll ignore it", plays out with monstrous spiders, a spider that is 10 feet across would have a frog companion that is about a foot long. That might be big enough to eat a large fly, but would represent no real threat to the party. If it's big enough to be a significant threat to the party, it would probably be perceived as a threat to the spiders. Unless of course all these spiders are like 30' gargantuan monstrosities.

  • 10:55 PM - krunchyfrogg quoted Dioltach in post Ok, need some Tolkien nerd help (can YOU write elvish?)
    So your friend is the secret heir to the throne? Cool! (This reminds me of the bit in one of the Rivers of London books -- I think it's Broken Homes -- where Peter deciphers the Elvish script on a magical trap, and it says, "If you can read this, you are a nerd and probably also dead.") LOL, only if you call the toilet the throne. Yes, the poem refers to Aragorn, but you see the second line on half the signs at Bed Bath and Beyond. 😂 I think it does look pretty cool though.

  • 08:16 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted Dioltach in post books to screen
    Oooh, I forgot about the Earthsea SyFy adaptation. It really mangled some of the key themes of the original book. Even the Studio Ghibli adaptation is missing something (though it hits closer to the mark). My least favourite is a tie between "Earthsea" and "The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising". They both seemed to be a case of "I've written a screenplay that nobody wants, so I'll slap the title of a famous book on it and pretend it's an adaptation." Or else the screenwriters thought their ideas were so much better than the author's.

  • 12:02 AM - ArchfiendBobbie quoted Dioltach in post Climate change -- what's really happening
    I think everyone on these forums has read enough fantasy books to see what's happening with about all the strange weather we've been experiencing the last few years. It's nothing to do with pollution or global warming. No, obviously some evil power is trying to bring about the end of the world. Traditionally, these evil powers have control over the weather, and bring exceptionally long and bitter winters, flooding, storms, drought and the like. I just hope that a band of plucky heroes are on a quest somewhere to stop this evil power amd save the world as we know it. "Stop this evil power" and "save the world" are mutually exclusive goals. The evil power is the Earth itself. Turns out all of that drilling and mining and such we did is really, really painful. And after enough time going through it, the planet snapped and decided killing us all is the better option. The only reason Earth hasn't accomplished that is, well, it's a planet. Let's see how fast you move when you're over four bi...

  • 12:37 PM - Ryujin quoted Dioltach in post What are your favorite games?
    I like playing mind games. Think about it. RPG-IRL I've got friends who do VO work, but I don't play computer/console games. I think that the last comp game that i played was "Pool of Radiance" by SSI. I'm pretty much just a RPG guy; mostly Pathfinder, D&D 2, 3, 3.5, 4, some Savage Worlds these days, though I've played dozens of them. I'd like to try out the newer Star Trek RPG and am hoping to get a comedy-horror campaign going, some time, using Dead Gentlemen's "Demon Hunters" Fate Core based game.

  • 05:52 PM - Tony Vargas quoted Dioltach in post What are your rules for classic swords and sorcery?
    is slow sorcery just plain incompatible with fun in a RPG when you tie player characters into it? I see a risk of "You guys go adventure. We'll be sprinking powders and chanting for the next few days." that I think everyone would want to avoid. For any clearly un-fun thing that an RPG might offer, there's somebody who thinks it'd be fun. ;) Something that's slow is a question of logistics. Is there time to do the ritual? OK, we do the ritual, if there's no problems, after that we continue on. Sure, if there's a ritual that needs to be done while something more exciting is going on, or a ritual that needs to be stopped by doing something exciting, the hero (and thus, generally, the PCs) should be doing the exciting bits. OTOH, if the ritual culminates in some excitement, like the quasi-resurrection in Conan the Barbarian, or if the everyone participates in the ritual and you just move to the next thing, that's fine. I also think it's fine to have background magical powers that are ...

    I tried to train my players to start calling me "God", but we defaulted back to "DM". My problem was the other way around.

  • 11:17 PM - Zaukrie quoted Dioltach in post After Game of Thones/George RR Martin who takes the mantle as the upcming fantasy
    Perhaps if Sony's televisation of the Wheel of Time is as good as GoT, the next big author might be Robert Jordan.So boring. Imo, of course. Glen Cook if they do The Black Company well. Lies of Locke Lamora is very approachable, and could easily be done on TV. But I don't like the odds for any books we are already reading, or have read
  • 04:23 PM - Shin Okada quoted Dioltach in post Mind Flayer Nautiloid Ship
    The cross-section shows an opening at the front of the Weapons level. Maybe the rectangle flanked by the two battle stations? Thanks. Maybe Illithids use their Levitation psionic power to down to/up from the gravity plane level.

  • 09:21 PM - Tonguez quoted Dioltach in post Your Tropes are Touching Me!
    One that always annoys me is elves being proficient with longbow and longsword. Because obviously those are the most appropriate weapons for fighting in woodland ... The Welsh used longbows for hunting (in woodlands) and for ambush attacks against the English, often firing at short range inorder to pierce armour. That seems highly appropriate for Elves. It was the English who instigated mass Longbowmen on the flanks of their formations, but even here this would be a special mass tactic for Elven armies,not the standard practice. Moreover - who said Elves have to live in the forest?

    Stay true to the Germanic roots, and give your dwarf a German accent. Preferably a slightly camp one. I sometimes like Russian ones. Sent from my SM-G900P using EN World mobile app
