  • 09:23 PM - steeldragons mentioned Crothian in post Player Flavour, Skills, & Money Sinks
    I have to concur with the majority of the thread at large and Crothian's observation specifically. 5e is highly houserule-able. It is designed to be very flexible that way and is one of, I think, its greatest strengths. But between this post an your other one about wanting to houserule darkvision (as much as I agree it is overdone) and stealth...it appears you want to rewrite rather sweeping changes to some different game you like better. That's not really houseruling. That's not tweaking mechanics or adding personal options or setting flavor. That, appears to me, the conclusion must be this system just isn't what you're looking for to provide your D&D good times [unless of course coming up with sweeping rules rewrites/changes is part of the fun for you. Which would also be completely valid...but does not mean there are "problems" with the existing system...which you seem to believe.] And that's totally ok. But I think I would be inclined to just go play a different system before I would institute or play -ostensibly- "5e D&D" with some of th...

  • 08:43 PM - CleverNickName mentioned Crothian in post Starting Serpent's Skull AP -- Any advice?
    Thank you for the input, Crothian. It's nice to have another DM's input on the AP and how it played. I like the idea of emphasizing the survival aspects of the first adventure, instead of just handwaving it as a minor inconvenience. There is more to surviving a shipwreck than just finding a way home, in my opinion. Stereofm, what about the end of Book Three did you have the biggest problem with? Any advice on how to avoid pitfalls and boredom? We rolled up some characters last night; it looks like the party is going to consist of: - a dwarf cleric - a half-elf barbarian (plans to multiclass with druid) - a half-elf rouge (plans to multiclass with ranger) - a human alchemist - an elf magus The barbarian/druid would like to focus on the wild shape ability, augmenting it with rage abilities. The rogue/ranger would like to be more of an outdoorsy, tracker-scout type character instead of the typical urban cutpurse. The cleric is going to be a kind of battlefield medic who uses Dodge, Mobility, sanctua...

  • 05:09 PM - Hand of Evil mentioned Crothian in post DMing, Sandboxes, and Boring Dungeons. HELP
    Welcome to the boards. Crothian covered it. Know your players, what they want, and work with them on the background and let them do some of the work; ask them how they came together as an adventuring group. Start small, focus on an area of you campaign setting and the move outward. Take, borrow and pillage from the news, history, books, etc. to build hooks for your games. This is the gossip NPCs will be talking about, the players hear this and it could lead to an adventure. For every action, there is a reaction. If the characters are in a fight and burn down a tavern, that tavern has to be rebuilt, the watch will be asking questions. Just ask yourself, after a session, what would happen now?
  • 04:47 PM - Mercurius mentioned Crothian in post It is hard to wait! (for my pre-ordered PHB)
    I agree with you Crothian on paper, but I can't help but feel the tingle of anticipation. That said, it would be for more than just discussion - reading (and drooling) enjoyment, as well. But like you, I'm not going to actual use it for some time. I'm going out later today and as a consolation prize, might go flip through it for a few minutes. I should probably leave my wallet in the car, though.

  • 02:18 AM - Kinak mentioned Crothian in post New GM Advice - Curse of the Crimson Throne
    Sounds like you're doing great so far! As far as rules, I tend to delay explanations for a anything that isn't immediately visible on the character sheet. When someone tries to use a combat maneuver, I tell them how it works. When someone asks about casting in melee, I explain casting defensively. I've found you can usually leave explanation of 5' steps until later as well, but that's one of the finickiest ones. We just introduced a new player a few days ago and the introduction was sort of "Here's your character sheet. Roll d20 (the round one) and add stuff. Here's where to find your skills, saves, and attribute bonuses. Here are your attacks." We felt dumb because we forgot to explain initiative until the start of combat, but that wasn't too bad. He dropped right in other than that. Crothian is absolutely right on weaving threads in early. The AP issues were released monthly, so sometimes the early parts don't link firmly with the later parts. Look for places you can sneak in extra foreshadowing. Cheers! Kinak

  • 07:55 AM - pemerton mentioned Crothian in post Uh... since when was this an issue.
    since Crothian seemed to say his group gave up on 4e I don't know why you would be giving such things as an argument of good things in a 5e thread. There was a lot of flack over reaping strike too. Just do a google search and you can see them. Many of the arguments about it, even from 4e fans, resembled arguments like we are having now about 5e's DoaM. Hardly a good thing either. <snip> This isn't even a "4e is bad because look its X number of years later and we have 5e." I'm just saying that while it may not have exploded the same way in the 4e days, it was still an issue with a grand number of people Crothian asked to be informed about the DoaM rules from 4e. I (and some others) informed him. He thanked me via an XP comment (I'm guessing he might have thanked some of the others too). And I still stand by my remark that I haven't encountered DoaM in 4e being abusive. I'm sure there are plenty of people who don't like it, but I don't think their objections are balance-based.

  • 01:59 AM - Hussar mentioned Crothian in post So what do you think is wrong with Pathfinder? Post your problems and we will fix it.
    ...athfinder and D&D like a wargame with some roleplaying mixed in, which results in ever significant action requiring a dice roll. If you play it as a roleplaying game with some mechanics for figuring out the things that can't be handled through roleplaying alone, you get a whole different game with a lot more variety. Let's go back to the original point shall we? I'd rephrase the above in this way: Lots of players and DM's play Pathfinder and D&D with in a very freeform manner which results in a very enjoyable game for that table, capable of creating a great experience, but extremely difficult to replicate at any other table since the thing that makes this great is the synergy between those specific players and that specific DM. Change the variables, either on the player side or the DM side, and the results are very different. Which makes it a difficult thing to talk about across groups because the things that pickin_grinnin does that work at his table, or the things that Crothian did at his table, may or may not work at another table, but, since actually identifying those elements would be virtually impossible due to the idiosyncrasies of the individual tables, it's not terribly useful to the conversation. It should never, ever be a problem to play a game by the rules. If playing the game by the rules gives bad results, then those rules should be changed. I should't have to ignore the rules in order to play the game. At least, that's how I feel about having rules in the game. They are there to be used. Telling me to ignore the rules, without actually being able to tell me which rules to ignore and when, doesn't help me. How can it?

  • 09:50 PM - Kinak mentioned Crothian in post Best favored enemy choices
    Yeah, Crothian has this one for sure. Ask the GM about it. You probably also want it to be justified, so talking to them about what you've already fought in your backstory wouldn't be bad. Humans are good for most campaigns. Evil outsiders come up a lot. You almost always fight some aberrations and undead as well. As far as levels go, the big differences are that you'll be able to fight lots of giants and you're probably past fighting goblins. It's not universal, but outsiders tend to show up more as you go up in levels. Most campaigns save that for past 8th, though. Going in blind, I'd probably fashion myself as a straight-up defender of nature (against unnatural menaces and civilization), taking aberrations or undead and humans. Cheers! Kinak

  • 06:27 PM - Challenger RPG mentioned Crothian in post 16 Questions about the new Flint & Steel RPG
    @Crothian : I certainly understand your point of view. I'd just like to point out that I'm in no way affiliated with Flint and Steel and that I was the sole creator of that 'pitch' line. It wasn't my intention to use it as advertising. I was merely following the new column rules and format. The creators of the game itself had nothing to do with such a blatant statement (which was all me) and in fact he's quite a modest fellow who said his game isn't 'better' but merely 'different.' I'm sorry if my opening line seemed like advertising. I was just following the new article posting guidelines. @Johnny3D3D : Thanks! I'm sure Bora would appreciate that. :) @Ahnehnois : I agree with your second statement, Ahnehnois. If anything, Mr. Mitricevic is one of the most modest game designers I've seen in a long time. Most game designers automatically tote their game as 'the best ever' right off the bat. As for the no levels and classes, I also find that interesting. It's an idea I've been tossing arou...

  • 07:58 PM - Super Pony mentioned Crothian in post So, how are those unique dice working out?
    If your group typically plays dice pool games where-in each person has their own stash of dice then, maybe. If, like Crothian mentioned, everyone has the dice within reach then two sets of dice for the group should work if iPads are an option at your table, get the app. I originally picked it up during the Beta since the dice were still being fabbed. They've made a couple great tweaks to the app (tallying symbols for you), and you've always got the dice you need (it even has standard dice).

    ...ave never played 3-3.5e. But I have certainly read enough in these very forums to know how things worked and where the problems arose. That said, I am all for restricting your usable material. It is one of the simple joys of DMing. Granted, I am prone to consult my players and make sure that's ok with them. [I]That said, I am more than capable of saying "No" to any given desire. Somewhere along the line...and I don't know if 2e kit books or 3x multi-classing or even something in 4e is ultimately to blame (as most things it is undoubtedly somewhere in the middle), but somewhere along the line, being a DM that says "no" became a four letter word in D&D. I can not fathom how or why. But it happened. We [D&D DMs and players] need to take that word back! It's not a bad thing! No game of D&D ever died because someone didn't have access to X Prestige class. If the players know that from the beginning [from restricted books], then there's no problem there. I will also agree with what Crothian said way up front, the easiest solution is simply to not play with players who are looking to abuse the system. I certainly do not. But I understand not everyone has their proverbial "pick of the litter" for player types everywhere.

  • 03:17 AM - Agatheron mentioned Crothian in post Tell me about STAR WARS: EDGE OF EMPIRE
    My understanding is that there are four options to increase one's obligation at character creation. Two cost 5 obligation, and two cost 10. You can only take each option once. If you take all of them, you could add 30 to a single character's obligation in return for what is 15xp, and 3,500 extra credits total. As ones "base" obligation is likely 10 already, it will then be 40. Is that worth the risk of more frequent strain? I can't say, but I wouldn't want to push it. @Crothian: you can choose to roll on a table or choose your obligation type, you're not tied to one or another. I chose to roll, because I wanted to see where the dice landed as a starting point. Sometimes the randomness can lend for a seed of creativity, but its not necessary if you have a clear concept on a character you want to play.

  • 05:35 AM - Knightfall quoted Crothian in post [Tell me about...] Palladium Fantasy, 1st Edition (plus Palladium's other books)
    ... book? http://www.enworld.org/forum/attachments/general-rpg-discussion/39911d1240264089-tell-me-about-these-older-edition-d-d-products-revised-list-102_6615.jpg That's first edition Palladium Fantasy. I don't think it is rare, and I'm not sure if it is sought after. On Amazon I can buy one used for $5 and new for $6 and that includes shipping. The second edition version of the game I have usually seen as the preferred game. Good to know. I would have hated to give up something really rare, that I didn't know about, for very little. (I thought "Revised Edition" might have meant 2nd or 3rd Edition, but since I don't know anything about Palladium books, I didn't really know.) BTW... How many versions of Palladium Fantasy have there been? Or is more complicated than that? I ask because I often see Palladium books for sale at used book stores and I have no idea what they're worth. Hmm... it sounds like it is something I'd want, just to have it. Thanks for the advice, Crothian. I appreciate your input. :) My understanding from recent threads about Palladium is that the 1st edition was more fantasy oriented and its own animal, while the second edition was basically the first set updated to rules more in line with those used by Rifts and other palladium products. My brother had the black covered palladium book when we were kids, and I believe the content is identical to the color covered edition now available on drivethrurpg.com. It's a great game and worth checking out and playing. <snip> Can't speak to value of the products outside comparable prices you'd find on ebay, craigslist or amazon, but the black-and-red covered palladium book is well worth keeping and playing, and valuable in that sense. :) My guess is that few Palladium books would be worth more then cover price. Palladium did lots of prints runs on their books so it was rare to see things go out of print. TMNT line might be worth something these days as they lost the license. T...

    I'm surprised people rate Handling animals so low. Every campaign I've been it has PCs getting and using horses when they can and having mules to carry the treasure. Not knowing how to deal with the animals is not a pretty sight. PCs hate it when the mule carrying thousands in gold goes running off scared into the wilderness. That's what Eldritch Blast is for.

    That's weird. You can't appreciate something you don't like and recognize it as good but just not for you? There are plenty of shows that I would call good that I don't like just like there are shows that I like but I wouldn't call them good. I will say that I feel the movie "Sin City" is excellent, insofar as it is technically very well crafted, and does exactly what it sets out to do with great effect. It is just that I really don't like what it sets out to do. :)

    When ever I feel like that toward a show I stop watching. It is so easy to go back and watch a show that I missed it is not like I'm missing anything. I just save myself some grief for a show I'm just not enjoying. I agree with this. I'm stopped watching season 1 but after hearing about the Inhumans reveal here I went and cuaght up with season 2 online and was much happier that I could ignore the dross and just go to the good story from when Skye-Daisy got her powers. I'll probably do the same for season 3, just do a marathon watch on quiet sunday. The only shows I'm likely to watch 'live' these days are Doctor Who and The Flash

I think what he does is disrupt the molecular bonds of things. Either that or he can burn stuff too at atomic level. As for not affecting SHIELD's stuff, probably because he's still not quite in control. Also, FREAKING BUS!!! :D Sorry I just love the new Bus...

    If one is going to compete with them one would have to under price them. I think people would shop elsewhere if a PDF was going to be a buck or so cheaper. If you've bought a PDF recently, what were the prices on e23, Paizo and OBS? If people aren't checking, that's not true. I don't check; $1 is not enough to make it worth splitting between sites more then I have to.
  • 11:00 PM - Morrus quoted Crothian in post DTRPG's latest controversy
    If one is going to compete with them one would have to under price them. I think people would shop elsewhere if a PDF was going to be a buck or so cheaper. Publishers set their own price. You're competing for the publishers, not for the customers. If all the publishers are elsewhere, the customers will go there. So what can you offer a publisher to make it worth the large amounts of hassle it is to upload and maintain a product catalogue somewhere else? I get under 10% of my sales from Paizo.com as opposed to DTRPG. Closer to 5%. I had had my catalogue up at d20pfsrd for about six months. In that time I sold exactly zero items there. Not a single one. So it's not easy to offer publishers the carrot of high traffic or sales. The horse has to come before the cart. The only thing I can think of which would attract me is if a store did ALL the work for me. If I didn't have to lift a finger to upload and maintain a large product catalogue, including PoD files, and if the location in question ha...

Unless there's a secret PDF millionaire out there somewhere, I have to imagine that the profit margins aren't thick enough to stand much undercutting. (And downloading stuff is only free to the person who's not paying for the site's bandwidth. Even my relatively modest personal sites cost real money -- I have to imagine bandwidth is a very big deal to OBS and, say, ENWorld.)

I agree. I think most casual Batman fans may not even be aware that there was more than one Robin, especially older fans (recall that Batman comics have been around for 70 years now, and it's not unreasonable to assume that Batman fans can range from eight to eighty and beyond).

    It is a troll product and it worked. I'd never heard of the product, the author, or the company until this happened. There is no such thing as bad press and the hoards of gamers are giving them free advertising better then even Paizo can muster. They've been a publisher for years and they have a ton of other books in this line already. Not a troll product.

    Both of those might suffer from when they get to the answers. Shows like Lost and Heroes also came out with neat ideas but when they had to bring answers they failed either in trying to or ignoring them. Right now they are just potential and with luck they will live up to that potential. I think the risk for Sense8 is different. It certainly looks like a mystery show a la Lost in the beginning of the first episode, but it almost immediately pulls back from that and puts the focus on the "mundane" lives of its (large) cast of characters. Note that I put scare quotes around mundane because the 8 main characters don't actually lead normal lives, they're the stars of 8 different genre pieces: Sun lives in a South Korean TV drama that could be called "Fight Club Business Lady" -- I think it runs after "Vampire Prosecutor" -- Capheus lives in a Nollywood Van Damme homage, Lito in a 21st telenovella sex farce version of "Threes Company", Kala in a Bollywood romcom with dark political overtones, and s...

Right now they are just potential and with luck they will live up to that potential. A big problem with Lost and BSG is that the writers basically said "it's all about the characters" Which was good for writing great characters. But bad for writing a mystery that gets solved because they admit they were making it up all along (especially the BSG writers).

    Potions and spell components. There has been in other editions parts of books and articles that would say these monster parts allows these things to happen with magic. Have fun with it. Especially if they carry around meaty parts in hot climates. That can get nasty fast. Yeah I know there's been stuff in the past and I might dig into some of my old books to see if I can find something specific. I've planned for special bits to be components for potions or spell research before. I've just never had a party that was so insistent on doing this to everything they fight...giant spiders, bugbears, goblins, wolves, etc. What can you get off of a goblin that's useful? :erm:
