    Quasi elemental portals to the plane of ice would make for great icehouses. Continual light/flame spells on posts make the Lamplighter’s Guild virtually obsolete, though they might survive if people don’t want light pollution. If so, then they’d go about shuttering or opening the lanterns. Mending & cleaning cantrips would make for a tidier world, especially if tied to cheap magic “wands”....

    Let’s talk waste management: A Sphere of Annihilation works great for waste disposal...until someone unauthorized gets ahold of it. An army of otyughs could be happy as employees of the city as sewage workers. An Elemental firepit as an incinerator, perhaps? Maybe even ventilated to the quasi-Elemental plane of smoke?

    It isn’t so much tha magic holds off the industrial revolution, it’s how magic would be used as a tool within it. And, of course, what would be the unintended consequences of using it that way? There are many magical ways to power things via magic that, AFAIK, violate the laws of thermodynamics. You could, for instance run a water mill with the outflow of one (or more) Everful Bottle. Of...

    Hmm, I was ready to discount this when I read the subject but it's actually quite interesting. Do you do it for attack rolls and saves as well? I do like the idea of less variance, at least with respect to someone's ability level and their success rate with common tasks. Although that could also be resolved by simply not calling for skill checks as often. I do wonder if it results in more...

I mean, even in wuxia films, with all of their mystic and fantastical tropes, you don’t see all that many fantasy creatures. A thought...what if there was a metaphorical tip if...

The xenomorphs don’t really fit the style of the setting, but they’re so damned iconic. Maybe...they could be the threat in the Tron-inspired Moria set piece. “Bugs”/“Glitches” perhaps?

If Sauron is a proto-AI spy satellite system in this setting, what else from that era of human...

    Hmmm... You could use homoserpens as the species name, partnered with whatever it was we came up with earlier for magically created creatures. Or you could use Homoserpens as a genus name, with subtypes with their own species names, like “major” for the purebloods, “nefas” for the abominations, and “hybrida” for the half-bloods.

As far as parkour goes specifically, it's probably a combination.

  • 05:59 AM - MNblockhead mentioned TarionzCousin in post What "backdoors" did wizards built into the spells named after them?
    TarionzCousin made a joke in the thread on Leomunds Tiny Hut in response to the question of whether someone could scry through the hut: Quote Originally Posted by @Stalker0 Does Leomund's Tiny Hut block Scrying?

What other back-doors and safeguards might wizards place into their spells, to prevent those spells from being used against them? Abi-Dalzim’s Horrid Wilting While I could find nothing that states this famed Greyhawk necromancer and elementalist ever became a lich. I would make sense. As a lich, he would be immune from the effects of this spell.

    ...enalties to give out. Only MM1 and MM2, and even then barely, used actual weapons/stats. With MM3, you'd have to use some fudge as MoutonRustique suggests: weakened, or maybe -2 atk (as an improvised weapon), or both. Then you can use the Holy Page 42, or simply state that it's a normal attack because a -2 to attack is comparable to an at-will effect, and you're not dealing damage. The other thing is: if the weapon is on the ground, it's either nothing for the monster to pick it back up, or if they manage somehow to carry it away, then well the PC might well start doing this each and every time there's a weapon involved. In that case, make sure that the next Ogre is twice as angry and deadly *without* the flail... So the better solution is probably, again, MoutonRustique's skill challenge version. (But then it may be that I like the nickname). Make the Ogre REALLY FEARSOME with his flail, and make it clear to the players that they have to get rid of it or be mashed into pulp. So, TarionzCousin, clearly you are now enthralled by the prospect of gathering your party from 7 years ago and re running that encounter?

    TarionzCousin: Prego! My pleasure Don't undervalue yourself. Typical rates, poor though they often are, are much higher than that, as they should be. $15 should not even cover a quarter-page b/w illo, let alone a full-colour one. You can totally charge more than $15. :) I know it's a really low rate, but in the last period I'm triyng to use watercolor for my illustration and I would like to do some experience with those illustrations, so I'm asking a lower rate than usual. Consider it as sales offer!!!! :)

  • 05:16 PM - DMZ2112 mentioned TarionzCousin in post Astral Sea and/or Astral Plane
    One of the things 4E got right, in my opinion, was the Astral Sea and the planar structure as a whole - really liked it and prefer it over the Great Wheel as it is more open-ended and incorporates some nice Spelljammer-esque goodness. Check out The Plane Above: Secrets of the Astral Sea for more. I agree that the overall D&D4 characterization of the Astral Sea is probably the best treatment of the Astral Plane throughout all of the D&D canon, but it is a little high level*. If you're looking for more detail, @TarionzCousin, you might also check out the AD&D2 A Guide to the Astral Plane. It was the comprehensive work on the subject until The Plane Above. EDIT: * By which I mean it is a 10,000-foot view, not that it is intended for epic tier.

  • 04:30 AM - Tequila Sunrise mentioned TarionzCousin in post Reinventing the [Great] Wheel
    Just for fun, I've been converting Planescape to my own personal image of perfection, and next on my to-do list is the alignment exemplars! I am a fanboy of original PS, but not of all the details. I'd like to narrow the exemplars down to nine races that are more thought-through than the canon races, which are mostly the result of D&D's haphazard "We made some stuff up we thought was cool" creative process. For example, I want three distinctly thematic Evil races instead of 5 (6?) Evil races that can largely be summed up as "Menageries of ugly* anthropomorphic creatures that are sometimes fiery." (I like 4e's elemental-demons, so I'm reserving "Oh, and it deals energy damage" for them.) So I'm making up my own stuff that I think's cool, and I could use your help! I'm hoping that @Quickleaf, @TarionzCousin, @Shemeska, and other PS fans will stop by to comment. ;) Here's my strategy: The exemplars of each alignment pole (NE, NG, CN, LN) have a shtick. Evil exemplars have disease/curses, Lawful exemplars have metallic flesh-enhancement (modron-ish), Chaotic exemplars have shapeshifting, and Good exemplars have...I dunno, I haven't worked that one out yet. Any ideas? Then, the exemplars of each alignment blend (CG, CE, LG, LE) combine the shticks of their 'parent' races. For example, shapeshifting (C) + curse (E) = were-beast (CE)! * Seriously, why are the evil ones always ugly, unless there's an ugly pimp on some lower plane ordering them about? Evil is selfish, it wants to be beautiful!

No results to display...

    Apparently Blackwing is not a crow. :hmm: Yeah, he's a Raven, that's pretty well established. It's why he can talk. Raven familiars can talk (speak one language their master knows).

    Errrm, how violent? "I attack Clever with my dice bag!"DO NOT MOCK MY PAIN. (some of those dice are really pointy.) Seriously though, you would think I was suggesting everybody install Windows ME on their laptops or something. "Eeew, gross. No no, that would never work, let's use an egg timer and a complicated system of punishments to force everyone to speed up combat or else. Calling our actions beforehand is just crazy talk."

  • 06:25 AM - corwyn77 quoted TarionzCousin in post There's gonna be a Jailbreak
    I would give a few guards some personality quirks and prepare some dialogue. Let the players listen in on some crazy, insane, makes-no-sense discussion that secretly gives them clues or passwords to something fun later. ... or just inflict an hour of NPC on NPC chatter on them before allowing even a hint of an escape. Players love that. Or, I could do that, then have the Mary Sue dragon wipe the entire keep and rescue the PCs - Players really love that.

  • 04:40 AM - robus quoted TarionzCousin in post Odyssey of the Dragonlords Player's Guide is Free!
    So... they stay in hiding! Ha, well if I’d shown some patience I would have seen that they actually do offer centaurs and satyrs as playable races!
  • 04:22 AM - robus quoted TarionzCousin in post Odyssey of the Dragonlords Player's Guide is Free!
    Because they were sneaky and hiding! I don’t get the desire to add in elves and dwarves in this setting. Thematically it doesn’t make much sense. I would go with centaurs and satyrs etc as playable races (if players really wanted to be something other than human) rather than elves and dwarves. A satyr bard or a centaur ranger sounds pretty cool.

  • 03:01 AM - Tonguez quoted TarionzCousin in post Shatner, Wheaton & More In D&D Themed Big Bang Theory Episode
    What is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar doing in this episode? :hmm: do you ask that just because he's tall? :rant: He was in movies with Bruce Lee and Airplane and is a Star Trek fan as he says himself I rarely partied or attended celebrity bashes. On the flights to games, I read history books. Basically, I was a secret nerd who just happened to also be good at basketball. Interacting with a lot of people was like taking someone deathly afraid of heights and dangling him over the balcony at the top of the Empire State Building. If I could, I’d tell that nerdy Kareem to suck it up, put down that book you’re using as a shield, and, in the immortal words of Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (to prove my nerd cred), “Engage!”

    A link to the actual product instead of an article about it: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/264030/Call-to-Arms-The-Warlord?term=call+to+arms+++warlord&test_epoch=0 You know, so you can (Sold) it. ;) Agreed...though to be fair, there was link in the article. :D

  • 03:16 PM - Gavin O. quoted TarionzCousin in post Largest Party Size you have ever Participated in/DM'd?
    Coincidence??? ;) I ran for 15 or 16 players way back in 1E when we didn't know better. Now I wouldn't want to go above 7 for D&D. Other systems can handle more or fewer, depending. There's a big difference I think between the maximum number of people who know the game and the maximum number of new people. If you're constantly having to remind everyone what to add to their initiative (the same thing as every other time you rolled it) and what their spells do (why do new players always want to play Wizards?), then the maximum party size that can work without problems decreases significantly.
  • 04:56 AM - Bawylie quoted TarionzCousin in post If you were able to design your own version of D&D, how would you do it?
    Have you ever seen the magic system in Ars Magica? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ars_Magica Huh - never have seen it. That’s kind of neat.

    I don't see Elminster or Drizz't on there... thank Tyr. ;) Not... Yet... But, I do not think the list includes demigods (which Elminster may very well qualify for) You never know, though. The 3e default setting god Saint Cuthbert was a mortal man who became a god and some older source books touch on people becoming gods...
