    I like that, including your proposed addition there. Actually, before we move to Reveling, should we have these methods get stronger as they go up? Music, Imbibing, and Dancing all work pretty much the same way and yield basically the same number of notes. Or are we happy with just having them as alternatives since each is useful only once per cycle?

    Well, Fabricate sounds like an appropriate spell, but it makes too much and is too high level. Mending and Make Whole are my other thoughts; maybe Make Whole is about the right level. Heat Metal is maybe an interesting possibility. I'm not sure what I'd use for the skill bonus.

    Hmm… these are epic level beasties so I'd be fine making their breath weapon a bit faster. How can the PCs "enjoy" all the many breath weapon options available to their dragon opponent if the poor thing only has time to use it a couple of times? Granted, the official 3E version of Bahamut is stuck with the 1d4 rounds restriction as you described, which always seemed a bit unfair when Tiamat's...

Maybe Sense Motive and either Escape Artist or Tumble? The first since the protagonist thought it could "see into his soul" and the second because cephalopods are slippery customers.

    My experience was that this got much worse for high-level play. Most of our level 25+ games consisted of just one or two set-piece battles. And, to be fair, 4e does that sort of huge battle very well, if a bit slowly. High level play in 4e felt more epic to me than it did in 1e, 2e, or 3e. But 4e doesn't work so well for quick, easy "side" encounters. I'm not complaining (much), just observing...

    Let's just settle on CR 11; CRs are definitely a bit imprecise. I like those tactics! For background, I guess we should decide if cultists summon them, they make their way to the material plane by searching for planar rifts, or what. I guess I'd lean toward summoning, since I don't think there was anything in the original. Oooh, or Ythog-Nthlei could dream them into existence or something.

    I think we should add the ranged trident attack to the Attack line of the hybrid form. Here are some suggested tactics: Unless they must pass as humanoid, wereporpoises attack in hybrid form, making use of their claw and bite in addition to manufactured weapons. When outclassed in battle, they change to porpoise form to flee. Not great, but these aren't terribly inspiring.

    Colossal is definitely right. I think Colossal+ is probably a bit too much. :D HD30 is ok, though you could argue me up to as much as 33 if you wanted. Yes to 12 tentacles The ability scores you list are ok, but I do agree with some of the tweaks. In particular, let's bump Str, Con, Wis, and Cha by +2 more.

    Yes, I'm still not quite decided. So which Challenge Rating are we going for, 11 or 12? I'm OK leaving them at CR 11 if you are. The phrasing could be a bit more elegant and I'm not sure we can categorically say they primarily use spells.

    Hmmm. I think Martial Artistry seems like the best fit. And that would fix the AC. Let's make the Strong Saves (Su) and maybe call it something more magic sounding. Would that wrap up the special abilities as far as you are concerned?

Somehow when the Sea Drake was upgraded to 3.5 it lost the cold resistance 5 of Johnathan Richards' 3.0 version despite keeping the note in the Rivislithis subspecies that "it lacks the silislithis’ cold resistance". Oops! Also, the Rivislithis was spelled Rivilithis in the original Dragon #260 article. Is that worth bothering...

    Hmmmm. Well, I'd certainly advocate for adding an exception that the totem can be replaced by an active construct, which remains animate even after the spell expires. Like I said, range is a bit odd for this spell. I'd say short range from the caster to both the totem and pilot during casting but not during the duration of the spell. Would "juggernaut stuff" just be something like this?...

  • 10:10 PM - Morrus mentioned freyar in post Hard sci-fi question: rotational artificial gravity space station
    Assuming it's the right rotation rate, on the inner surface it'll be 1G and indistinguishable from Earth. Depending on the size of the sphere, gravity might decrease rapidly so that the second floor of a building might be noticeably lower G. Climbing ladders could be odd! If it's small enough, your head might be in perceivable lower G. With a larger sphere (like the one illustrated above), that effect would not be noticeable unless you climbed several floors at least. The centre of the sphere would indeed be zero G. Actually, we have a couple of pretty scientific types on the boards here, so @Umbran or @freyar might have more to add. I'm sure there's an equation or something you can use to determine the gravity at a given distance from the 'wall' for sizes of sphere/speeds of rotation.

  • 06:28 AM - DMMike mentioned freyar in post Battlefield 3 Unlocks the Secrets of the Universe
    Well gang, I'll grant that 1) the laws of quantum mechanics and general relativity work really well, and that 2) you have much better understandings of these laws than I do. But I believe that the great unifiers are still battling it out, to see how the two laws (theories?) come together. And since I haven't heard explanations lately for where all the universe's dark matter is hiding, or why the universe's expansion is accelerating, I hope that we can agree that there are still some flaws in the maths. I'll ask about relativity first: freyar: how can every observer agree on what physical events happen, but not when they happen? The "when" seems pretty important to me, unless "when" is only a number on a clock. If you were in the open at 12:01 but behind cover at 12:02, then I hope I shot you at 12:01. Umbran: see the above case. If we can disagree on when getting shot occurred in relation to other events, and if another event is the arrival of a tank between you and me, then that tank might mean the difference between life and death. Also, shooter games do a certain degree of smoothing, so that updates to your game world don't look (too) awkward. If the universe runs on something similar to the Frostbite game engine:heh:, then there wouldn't be any obvious "please update" moments. Just tiny inconsistencies, like a single photon causing an interference pattern with itself.

  • 11:23 AM - Echohawk mentioned freyar in post Monster ENCyclopedia: Aarakocra
    Thanks for all the kind feedback on my post! It was more entertaining than I expected to research the bird-men :D. This really needs to also be published on a blog -- even something as simple as Blogger -- for posterity's sake. I might give these a more permanent home on the ENWorld wiki eventually. But I'd like to cover a few more monsters before I do that. Also, posting them on the boards is a great way to get feedback on bits of monster lore I might have missed, like the 5e snippets Nikosandros pointed out. That gives me an opportunity to update them before moving them to the wiki. Are you planning to go in alphabetical order or as whimsy strikes? And just how many of D&D's many, many, many critters are you planning to tackle with this project? Covering them all could take quite a bit of time. No, definitely not strict alphabetical order. As freyar points out, there are a lot of D&D creatures. By my rough count, about 9000 distinct... um... "species" across all editions of D&D. Of course, one entry can cover several species (Aarakocra; Aarakocra, Athasian; Aarakocra, Malatran...), but I reckon that there are still at least three or four thousand potential Monster ENCyclopedia entries. With a strict alphabetical approach, it would be decades before I reached zzonga-bush. Fantastic thread. Aarakocra are pretty much confirmed, since they were mentioned by Mike Mearls in an interview yesterday as an example of the amount of information and story hooks that we will get in the MM. Arakocra will be tied to elemental Air, guardians agains Elemental Evil and enemies of the gargoyles that will be tied to elemental Earth. Thanks for pointing that out. I've had that Tome Show interview sitting on my desktop for a few days, but hadn't yet listened to it. I'm going to update the OP to include what we now know about 5e aarakocra from Mike...

  • 07:30 PM - Cleon quoted freyar in post Converting True Dragons
    Wow, that's a lot to parse! How about we settle a common thing or two before we get to the first one? For example, I'd be in favor of the usual 1d4 round wait period for the breath weapon with no per day restriction and giving each of them multiple types of breath weapon. Would you agree? Hmm… these are epic level beasties so I'd be fine making their breath weapon a bit faster. How can the PCs "enjoy" all the many breath weapon options available to their dragon opponent if the poor thing only has time to use it a couple of times? Granted, the official 3E version of Bahamut is stuck with the 1d4 rounds restriction as you described, which always seemed a bit unfair when Tiamat's 1d4 round restriction only applies to each head and each head can breath separately as a standard action - so in effect she's got five parallel breath weapons.

    Yes, that's a goofy description but works for me! :p Updating Wereporpoise Working Draft. Background: Wereporpoises are lycanthropes that can transform into small aquatic animals. They are bitter enemies of weresharks and rivals of wereseals. Wereporpoises often rest on shore during the day. Since only the Faerunian ones can summon whales, I'd leave that for the underbar. As "small", "aquatic" and "animal" have rule-specific meanings in 3E D&D, I'd change those. Probably also add in humanoid form to the resting bit.

    I think all that's left is some background. Any thoughts on that? I'm thinking we should modify the mention of Hanim to give some hint who they are. i.e. change: The Hanim have developed a secret process that allows a living creature to form a symbiotic union with a valgoss. The candidate must perform an hour-long ceremony and then enter water populated by valgoss. The Hanim usually accompany this ceremony with incense and the music of hide drums, but this is not necessary for success.

    Description: A wet elf. ???? We normally describe the hybrid form which, if you think about it, is going to look a bit goofy. Hmm… A sleek man-shaped being with the head and dorsal fin of a porpoise. Did you ever post the original text for these? It might help for the flavor. I think so, but it's so short it's easier to just repost it: Weredolphins: These are Lawful Good beings that are able to transform themselves into elf-like humanoids or bottlenose dolphins. Weredolphins attack by ramming (2d4 points of damage). They can summon 1d10 dolphins or other small cetaceans or 1d2 whales. During the day, weredolphins may rest atop whales or come ashore. They are the enemies of the weresharks and wereseals. I'm thinking the "wereseals" might be more rivals than enemies, at least compared to weresharks. We should also use the bit about them sleeping ashore or on whales - presumably summoned ones. This reminds me, my lycanthrope list includes wereseals (there are three v...

Oh, I forgot to mention I did CC-formatted versions with the entries split up a couple of weeks ago (June 26th to be exact). With Ahi, the updated version of Rahab and the Land Urchin that means we're only one short of a batch of ten.

    AC 42 will work for me. Updating the Khalk'ru Working Draft. Maybe add Diplomacy and Use Magic Device to the skills list? There's no indication Khalk'ru uses items - the protagonist wasn't even sure it was intelligent - and it never attempted to communicate with others. Maybe Sense Motive and either Escape Artist or Tumble? The first since the protagonist thought it could "see into his soul" and the second because cephalopods are slippery customers. Before jumping on the feats, can you think of any other SAs or SQs? It seems maybe a touch light. Any SLAs we can justify? Hur… I could see us going for dream plus some generic utility SLAs common to demon lord type entities such as blasphemy, detect magic, detect law, greater dispel magic and the like.

    Let's go with Improved Disarm. Not too many monsters with that. Oh, we can just go with Martial Resilience (Ex). There's nothing about magic for the +3 to saves, and I'm ok with switching to all good saves. But I guess Unholy Resilience works if you want to stick to a +3 bonus. We can cut Slow Fall.

    Let's just settle on CR 11; CRs are definitely a bit imprecise. I like those tactics! Updating the Priest of Ythog-Nthlei Working Draft. For background, I guess we should decide if cultists summon them, they make their way to the material plane by searching for planar rifts, or what. I guess I'd lean toward summoning, since I don't think there was anything in the original. Oooh, or Ythog-Nthlei could dream them into existence or something. I have no objection to mentioning all the above as possibilities and leave the details to the DM. In the original adventure they were trapped in a buried facility (in some sort of suspended animation, presumably?) and woke up when the facility was breached by priests of Poseidon building a temple on top of it. So we should add "lurking in eldritch dungeons" to the options. I don't think they would be summoned by standard methods (planar ally and the like) since they lack the extraplanar subtype. The cultists may have to use other means to call a p...
  • 05:14 PM - Cleon quoted freyar in post Converting Creatures from Other Campaign Settings
    That all looks good to me! Updating Create Guardian Spell Working Draft. Though I do want to add something about the juggernaut constructs. How about adding this paragraph after the "type of juggernaut" table. If the caster or pilot has control over a juggernaut construct (i.e. a normal or enhanced wooden juggernaut, stone juggernaut, wicker juggernaut or winged juggernaut) they may transform that into a guardian juggernaut instead of a totem. The juggernaut construct becomes a focal component of the create guardian spell instead of the totem material component that is normally used. Like any other spell focus, the construct is not harmed by the spell and may be animated by create guardian as many times as you desire. There is no caster level requirement for this application of the spell. Thus, you can use create guardian on a stone juggernaut even if you lack the 11th caster level the spell requires to animate a stone totem. Also, how's this for the component text: Material Component...

Hmm… An entity of solid darkness as if a creature's shadow had gained life and substance of its own. Its outline is constantly in flux but is approximately humanoid, but the head and limbs are monstrous, lethal appendages for rending or crushing opponents. I thought about mentioning something like "bestial jaws, ravaging claws, coiling tentacles, cutting blades." in the description of the appendages but upon reflection it seemed better leaving it vague.
  • 02:33 PM - Cleon quoted freyar in post Converting original D&D and Mystara monsters
    Imbibing looks pretty similar to to Music but with a Con check. Can you think of any skill to go along with it? Profession (cooking) or something? That doesn't seem quite right. I was thinking we'd use Concentration and Autohypnosis on the basis that the caprine isn't making the drinks, but trying to keep a sober enough head to collect the resonance notes. i.e.: Imbibing: The caprine shares flagons of strong drink with a group of revelllers for at least 10 minutes. At the end of the merry drinking, the caprine attempts either a DC 10 Constitution check or a DC 15 Concentration check (or a DC 15 Autohypnosis check if the campaign uses the Psionics rules). If they succeed, a number of intelligent creatures equal to 1 plus the amount by which the caprine's check exceeds the DC stop to share a toast, and the caprine gains one resonance note per drinker. For example, a caprine that rolled 18 on a DC 15 Concentration check would earn 4 resonance notes and drink a toast with 4 creatures....

    In that case, I guess we should take a look at those Mystarans! Fine! There are four Mystaran Dragon Rules. Diamond the Star Dragon who rules Lawful Dragons, Opal the Sun Dragon who rule Neutral Dragons, Pearl the Moon Dragon who rules Chaotic Dragons and finally The Great Dragon who rules All Dragonkind. Unless you have any preferences we might as well convert them in that order, which would put Diamond first. I'll post the original stats shortly. Come to think of it, most of their original appearances included all four dragons in one 'Dragon Ruler' entry. I'll email you a file with the original 4-dragon entries for comparison purposes.

    I think we should add the ranged trident attack to the Attack line of the hybrid form. Will do. Updating Wereporpoise Working Draft. Here are some suggested tactics: Unless they must pass as humanoid, wereporpoises attack in hybrid form, making use of their claw and bite in addition to manufactured weapons. When outclassed in battle, they change to porpoise form to flee. Not great, but these aren't terribly inspiring. The "change to porpoise form to flee" only makes sense if they have ready access to water. A wereporpoise might be encountered on land, after all. How about: Unless they must pass as humanoid, wereporpoises normally fight in hybrid form so they can use claw and bite attacks in addition to manufactured weapons. In the ocean they change into porpoises if that form's higher swim speed is advantageous, such as when they when are outclassed in battle and wish to flee.

    Colossal is definitely right. I think Colossal+ is probably a bit too much. :D HD30 is ok, though you could argue me up to as much as 33 if you wanted. Yes to 12 tentacles The ability scores you list are ok, but I do agree with some of the tweaks. In particular, let's bump Str, Con, Wis, and Cha by +2 more. I know Int 15 is pretty low for an extraplanar deity-like being, but Khal'kru just doesn't seem superintelligent to me. So +2 more to Strength, Constitution, Wisdom & Charisma on top of the Str 38, Dex 25, Con 37, Int 15, Wis 24, Cha 24? I'm fine with that. Updating the Khalk'ru Working Draft.

    Hmmm. I think Martial Artistry seems like the best fit. And that would fix the AC. Updating the Paper Warrior Working Draft. Do you prefer Improved Disarm or Improved Trip for its 6th level monk bonus feat? Let's make the Strong Saves (Su) and maybe call it something more magic sounding. We gave the Shadow Walker the following: Martial Resilience (Ex): The Shadow Walker has all good saves. So if you want a supernatural "more magic sounding" version how about: Unholy Resilience (Su): The Paper Warrior gains a +3 profane bonus to all Fort, Ref, and Will saves. Would that wrap up the special abilities as far as you are concerned? Not quite, assuming we use Pain Touch = Stunning Fist, Missile Deflection = Deflect Arrows that still leaves the martial maneuvers Prone Fighting, One Finger, Fall, Ironskin and Speed to write up. Speaking of Fall, for some reason I thought that was the Monk's slow fall ability so included that in Martial Artistry but reading the original it's obviously mo...

    I'd be ok with CR 12, too. Seems like this is one of those places where the CRs of two different SRD critters just don't quite line up. Yes, I'm still not quite decided. So which Challenge Rating are we going for, 11 or 12? I'm OK leaving them at CR 11 if you are. Tactics: Priests of Ythog-Nthlei always begin with a hostile attitude except toward known allies. A solitary priest typically enters combat after having used its spells to improve its own capabilities when it has a chance, attacking primarily attacking with spells. They are, however, unafraid to enter melee when necessary. Priests involved in a chanting chorus, however, enter melee immediately, except for the primary chanter. The other priests in the group fight to the death to protect the last chanting priest until the casting is finished. The phrasing could be a bit more elegant and I'm not sure we can categorically say they primarily use spells. Let's see… Priests of Ythog-Nthlei are implacably hostile...
