About Askaval30
Introduction:
VTT or face to face: D&D 5th, Dark Heresy, whfrp.
About Me:
Let's see... started in faraway 89 with Basic D&D... then followed subsequent permutations, 2e to 3e to 3.5 before finally becoming enamored with 4th edition. Interestingly enough all of these were played with a superb group in Italy for many happy long years. Since returning to the US I've played CoC, Fringeworthy, Timelords, SW Saga and Savage Worlds but as of yet no D&D, something I really look forward to, also wouldn't mind some Dark Heresy or wfrp. I also don't disdain strategic wargames a la Warhammer, battlefleet Gothic or At-43

    Celebrim pdzoch Askaval30 Caliban Blue Thank you guys very much for your feedback :) I've adapted a lot from your ideas and re-written the room. Would love to hear your critique and feedback. ------------- #2. Guardian Room (revised) Beyond the door is a room lined with mosaics running the floor and walls, only occasionally interrupted by marble beneath. The geometric patterns in hues of yellow, orange, and red resemble flames spiraling toward the center of the floor. Designs of serpents, lions, and rams emerge from the flames, even as geometric man-like figures fall into the spiral of flames. Perhaps the room measures 40’ x 30’ but it’s hard to be certain because of the disorienting design of the mosaics. At the far side is a hammered copper door. Visual reference for mosaic: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/ec/c5/3c/ecc53c462b5ceaac3eb5bb074245563f.jpg A 20’ wide strip of mosaic running through the center of the room perpendicular to the PCs’ entrance is a trigger for ...

    I like the ideas of making the encoutner not just a fight, but a lateral thinking challenge. That really suits the rest of the dungeon which is a bit more "fairy tale" in feel, and involves several traps/illusions and fights that involve tricks to make them go smoother / be resolved easily. pdzoch The idea of a new or rejuvenated chimera being (re)summoned with each misstep is apropos to the dungeon/adventure. And the idea of the heads morphing with each summoning is also apropros to the nature of a chimera. Sort of the same as what Askaval30 was recommending; a recurring monster who keeps coming back with a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor/interaction with the PCs. I think that's smart because it elevates the chimera from being a boring under-level monster ill-suited to an enclosed space. The idea of the trap polymorphing a PC into the chimera fits with the dungeon/adventure Caliban, though in terms of challenge four 11th level PCs vs. one chimera...the PCs are still going to stomp the polymorphed chimera... It's interesting though... Might have to experiment with that!

  • 10:04 PM - lowkey13 quoted Askaval30 in post It's a Drizzt! "Timeless" - New Drizzt Do'Urden Trilogy by R.A. Salvatore
    Then again I am old and cantankerous... I've replaced Salvatore with Polansky and Rothfuss, but if any young one finds inspiration in the likes of Drizzt I will not begrudge them that, I know I did! What are you talking about? The only benefit of getting old and cantankerous is the ability to tell the young'uns that the stuff they like today sucks, and to keep off your lawn. Well, that and looking forward to a future of AARP discounts.

    Loved the first trilogy as a teen... but IMO it hasn't aged well... or with grace... both story and writing have not grown with time. Then again I am old and cantankerous... I've replaced Salvatore with Polansky and Rothfuss, but if any young one finds inspiration in the likes of Drizzt I will not begrudge them that, I know I did! No Abercrombie?

    ok... this table is utterly wonderful! but I am now curious, what system of crits do you use? I keep seeing all these references to severity... Here you go! http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?302494-Next-Working-on-a-Critical-Hit-Fumble-Table&p=5487893&viewfull=1#post5487893

    OP here... and whoa look at the posts! My group will really enjoy reading through all the responses to what we thought was a relatively innocuous question. A big thank you to all of you for your collected wisdom, wordsmithing and the occasional acrimony! We had always used the term strictly in the biological sense of one organism with two or more genders... I guess it just made sense for gods and aberrations. We hadn't considered the ethical implications of the word or its use. Fascinating stuff that is good to know, so thank you all for expanding our minds! :D Just a note that intersex refers to sex. Gender is a social construct and doesn't have to do with sex organs or other biological markers (such as but not limited to hormones).

    My group will really enjoy reading through all the responses to what we thought was a relatively innocuous question. You should have a roll of duct tape available, just in case. Somebody's head might try to explode. :confused: Glad to be of help.

    ... the topic came up of how inclusive this new edition is when mentioning potential LGBT themes or non-binary genders during character creation ... D&D is as inclusive as you and the group want it to be. If you don't want to get into that subject matter at all, you can still play D&D. If the subject matter is central to a character concept, you can still play D&D.

  • 12:58 AM - mattcolville quoted Askaval30 in post FANTASY GROUNDS Virtual Tabletop's D&D License!
    yes, there is a draw tool included by which you can hand-draw maps or pretty much anything else. You can even overlay a grid or the fog of war on it just like you'd do on an imported jpeg image This is something I think needs some work as a feature. Right now the pencil tool has one thickness, no snap-to-grid (as far as I know) and no way to change the color. I end up doing things in Photoshop which I am not proficient in.

  • 08:45 PM - Nikosandros quoted Askaval30 in post Which 'foreign' languages have seen D&D?
    I know for a fact (having had the books and played with them) that D&D 2e, 3e and 4e were translated in Italian, Pathfinder as well I'd imagine. curious question btw, what brought it on? Yes, Pathfinder has indeed been translated in Italian.
  • 08:34 PM - Polyhedral Columbia quoted Askaval30 in post What brought it on.
    I know for a fact (having had the books and played with them) that D&D 2e, 3e and 4e were translated in Italian, Pathfinder as well I'd imagine. curious question btw, what brought it on? The question is informal research toward these things I've been wondering about: I've been wondering if D&D has ever been published in a 'stateless' language, such as Catalan. It's a followup to my request for 5e translations to appear in smaller languages (on another thread). I'm interested in actually fun things such as D&D and Star Wars (rather than 'pre-chewed' boring textbooks) being used as a tool for learning and propagating languages. I'm interested in finding out what are names for in-game things in various languages (such as 'elf' and 'sword' and 'fireball'), because some of the in-game languages are essentially Real World languages, such as the Espan (Spanish) and Verdan (Portugues) languages of Mystara. So knowing the D&D terminology in Spanish and Portuguese gives a window into those in-game l...

  • 08:23 PM - Keldryn quoted Askaval30 in post Planescape: Torment Sequel - Set in Monte Cook's Numenera
    While I am firmly convinced PST was the best computer rpg of the golden age this so called sequel leaves me a little cold... it isn't planescape, uses none of the characters, settings nor references what happened in the original... so what is left? the 'PST feeling & themes'? While these design influences are fantastic additions to any crpg, it seems a bit of a stretch lo label it the sequel to PST... since there is little or nothing that hearkens to the original from what I read from those these initial comments. then again perhaps I am wrong, I hope I am wrong. The Final Fantasy series of games has been doing exactly that since the beginning. Each game in the series exists in its own self-contained universe, using none of the characters or locations from previous games. The technology level of the setting changes from game to game, as well as the magic and character advancement systems. Games in the series share similar themes and game design elements, but that's about it. Now, Square...
