    I like Voyager, but TNG is better. Voyager had a stellar pilot and than season 1 was dross (as in very boring). It picks up a LOT in season 4. However, TNG I feel is better in all ways.

    He already stated that his trilogy will be released on Disney+ rather than theater. In that light, it would depend on whether they are referring only to movies released in the theater, or also including movies on Disney's new streaming service.

    To make it interesting, if they try and fail, they might actually have consequences of failure? Sometimes we learn from failure, other times we learn more from the consequences of that failure? It also would tend to make a character think twice about trying an impossible task if there were dire consequences if they failed.

    Well, in theory if one wanted to go above level 4 I believe it follows a path similar to Pathfinder with the next level being 10K and then 15K after that. (actually as per the PRD it is 10K, and then 15K and then 23K, though that is fast advancement). https://www.d20pfsrd.com/classes/character-advancement/

    In many ways the early Pathfinder volumes could also be seen as a conglomeration of both Dragon and Dungeon, but for a more generic D20 type setting (as Golarion was being fleshed out). The early ones not only had the main adventure path, many of them had other smaller adventures/dungeons as well as articles and stories much like a Dragon would have. In many ways, though they call it...

    I think you give online trolls to much credit (not unusual, MANY people do, some for nefarious reasons as to try to reason out that their show or shows are not as good or bad as a general rating says it is). Once something has over 1000 ratings, and especially one it has over 5-10,000 ratings, it's going to be very hard for online trolls to actually change the general consensus. That is a...

    AS far as Kara-Tur goes, this has been around for several years now. It's a conversion of OA in the Forgotten Realms to 5e play. It's mostly rules so not much fluff, but it's been there. Yes, it's a PDF, so yes...you'd have to print it out yourself in order to have a hardcopy.

    Something to note. While I see the OP's premise and actually agree a good deal, if we go by how the rules are made, there is the DM's option of a Variant with Automatic successes. If the DC is 10 or less a proficient character automatically succeeds. A Character that is 11th level or higher automatically succeeds on tasks with skills they are proficient that have a DC of 15 or less. ...

The idea is that Palpatine somehow extended his life by having his spirit/soul or whatever it is to be able to leap between bodies. Thus, Snoke was actually a possessed creature that was Palpatine?

DS9 also had a decent opening season. I could see Discovery being better than Enterprises first season, though I'd say they are more about equal. TOS season 1 also is far better than Discovery.

    The movie wasn't really clear about it, but in Snoke's Throneroom he talks about balance. He states basically that as darkness rises, light rises up to meet it. In addition, he talks that as his apprentice grows in power, his equal on the light side would also grow. Snoke came into existence probably when Luke Skywalker already was around. Even if Luke cuts himself off from the Force,...

    The way that the sequel trilogy takes it, I think is that the idea is that there is balance between force users. Annakin, in that way, really did finally bring balance to the force, as long as you don't look at all the extraneous material found in anything but the movies themselves. When he did the Jedi Purge and it was Him and the Emperor on the Dark Side and Yoda and Obi-Wan on the light...

    I'm still thinking (said this before I think) Palpatine is dead. It's the holocron (I believe it was hinted at previously) which has some sort of connection to Palpatine (or perhaps remnants like a ghost) and it is this holocron which initially started the corruption of Kylo Ren in the first place. It appears though, that Kylo and Rey may team up in this one from the appearances of the...

    Well, if you are a DM there are things you can do if you notice a player is consistently rolling low over several sessions. I HAVE noticed this on occasion and if it is consistent, start offering to let the player do what I call reverse rolls. What this means, is the player can elect to allow the DM to interpret their die roll as the exact opposite number. They can make this choice during...

It's the same that's been expressed for those with the force, they instinctively can have better reflexes and abilities in...

    30 DEX (+10), 30 WIS (+10) gives an epic Monk 30 AC right there. Or 30 DEX (+10), +3 Studded Leather (12+3), and a +3 Shield (+2 and +3) gives a Fighter 30 AC. Not hard to hit AC 30 in epic with the right focuses. With other things you can go over it. Even at lower level it is possible to get rather high AC's when incorporating Magic Items

  • 12:47 PM - Hussar mentioned GreyLord in post Chinese Government Burns Cthulhu RPG Print Run
    GreyLord - "When should we censor" is an excellent question. However, like all excellent questions, we do need to unpack it a bit before answering. 1. How do you define censorship? What was done to White Wolf, for example, was not censorship. No governments were involved. And, frankly, these were business decisions, not moral ones. People objected to the content, and voted with their wallets. For WW to not do anything would negatively hurt their profits going forward, so, action had to be taken to salvage their reputation. However, that's not censorship. That's free market economics at work. In this case though, it's clearly textbook censorship. A government is destroying works. This isn't a company trying to salvage their reputation, this is a government repressing what they feel are transgressive writings. It will only really muddy the waters if we conflate the two things. A company removing something because of negative fan reaction is very, very different from a...

  • 01:28 AM - Wulffolk mentioned GreyLord in post Xanathar’s Guide to Everything is the fastest-selling Dungeons & Dragons book of all time
    I think that's what he was saying. By NOT selling books you avoid oversaturating the market (something 4e did very well [aka the market got oversaturated] and even 3.5 as sales kept diminishing more and more and more with each book), but at the same time you miss out on all the money you MIGHT make if you sold more books. Thank you, GreyLord That is essentially what I was getting at. I would like to see a greater quantity of player option material, but not quite so much as 3.5e and PF. I would like to see WotC find a nice middle ground.

    GreyLord and Shemeska All too true. As much as I feel the way stats are set up isn't helping I really couldn't see WoTC doing anything so drastic. But with a new edition around the corner, especially one supposedly set up around modularization a guy can dream. shidaku I wasn't really thinking along the lines of multiple boxes. More like if your character is "strong"+x to hit and damage and strength skills or something. Maybe one for class, one for race and one for fun? There'd still be numbers I just feel that we don't roll a d6 to determine starting level so why do it for the rest of the stuff? Umbran Yes most stuff in the game is a personal preference. But with the touted modularity why not make stats a module? ;)

  • 02:38 PM - Kinak mentioned GreyLord in post What's after Golarion? (and what's the future of Pathfinder?)
    ...ough to keep going for a long, long time. And, for each AP, there'll be some companion products for the areas and concepts it touches on. For example, we'll be getting our first in-depth look at Numeria around GenCon next year because that's where the winter 2014 AP is set. But there hasn't been an AP set in Isger or Galt or Rahadoum or a dozen other countries, so only a handful of those have books about them. The real question is why they'd risk splitting their playerbase by releasing a new setting. This leads me to the question of how Golarion is handled: is there some sort of ongoing history or is it a static world? Do the many APs leave their mark on the world?Basically static. The APs don't leave a mark unless you run them and decide they do for the purpose of your campaigns. Which makes sense. Otherwise, you'd have APs conflicting with the setting ("The queen is acting strangely." "You mean the one the setting books say got killed by a party of adventurers last year?"). @GreyLord is right that Shattered Star assumes you've run some earlier ones (mostly Rise of the Runelords). But the setting as a whole doesn't assume any of those are done already. Cheers! Kinak

    What does LFQW stand for? [Goes to Google] https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards Nope. This was not a factor for me diving into 5e. I'm not a "new" gamer, but I stopped playing with 1e and other 80s era games around 1990 when I was at college. Got back into TTRPGs with 5e. Have to say that there was not much analysis that went into my decision. Certainly not to level of studying character power progression. I took to 5e, which got me back into TTRPGs, mainly because of feelings. It "felt" like D&D. It was evocative, it was easy(ier) to learn, and it was accessible (easy to find people to play with). If I wanted to play a heavily crunchy game, I'd get back into running miniature wargames. I was really into that in the 80s as well. But I don't have the time and there is something magical about TTRPGs that I cherish and that magic is not in the tactical combat rules. As for LFQW, even that I now know what you are referring do, can't say I would care. ...
  • 08:11 PM - CapnZapp quoted GreyLord in post Paizo To Make Kingmaker Bestiary... For D&D 5E!
    I personally do not feel the LFQW thing is even a FACTOR with how popular 5e has become. If THAT was the deciding factor, 4e would have won the gambit by a long mile. 5e is successful because it is FAR easier to general people to learn, and when new players are coming to a game, ease of use is a major factor. Eventually some may want something different, but for new players, 5e currently is one of the easiest games to learn within a short period that fall under the popular name brand of D&D (aka...any type of game that would fall under the D20 mechanic of games). It has nothing to do with LFQW per se, and more to do with the fact that a LOT OF NEW gamers are coming into RPGs and are actually able to figure out how to play with a minimum amount of trouble and confusion. That's the real key to 5e's success today. It is attracting NEW gamers, rather than just appealing to old gamers who keep bringing up old thoughts such as LFQW and other relics of a bygone age of angst and discussion about ...

    On a side note, it is interesting how many waited to try to see if there was an end credits scene. Marvel has trained them well. PS: There were no scenes in the credits or afterwards that I could see, just the sound if the hammer... I don't watch the credits for the end scenes. I never have. They're just nice modern extras. For movies I've enjoyed I watch the credits because: A great many virtually anonymous people worked really hard to entertain me for 2-3 hours. The least I can do, even though I'll never remember them/manage to read them all, is to read a few of their names as they scroll by. In general: When I see a movie opening weekend, or at popular times, there's so many people all trying to leave the theatre/parking lot/use the restrooms all at once that it's pointless for me to get up out of my seat. By the time the credits are finished the crowds dispersed. :)

  • 10:37 AM - Joseph Nardo quoted GreyLord in post Hobby Games Down 3% But RPGs Up 18%
    Well, it matches the numbers I posted earlier (though it's on the lower end of 65-75) independent of what their research showed. It should not be that much of a surprise to anyone. That's still pretty decent growth and all indications are that it will continue to grow. Surprised at some of the numbers in other categories and the drop in at least one of them. Depending on what numbers you use, that is either less than $1.50 per player (40 million player figure), less than $5 per player (15 million player figure), or more if you guestimate less players. This could indicate that better leverage of the brand could be utilized (less than $1.50 per player means that not a ton of accessories are being bought) which means with better marketing and usage of the brand there is a HUGE potential for exponential growth. OR, with a lower number it could indicate that it's about even where each group is probably buying around one or two of the accessories per year ($5 per player) most likely. OR, if th...

    Depending on what numbers you use, that is either less than $1.50 per player (40 million player figure), less than $5 per player (15 million player figure), or more if you guestimate less players.. As mentioned in the last thread, you’re conflating different figures. The 15M was North America and the 40M is was worldwide. These figures are US and Canada.

    This idea that Rogues = Combat class just as good as a warrior is kind of a weird obsession of TTRPGs and specifically D&D in the past few years. Rogues may not stink in combat, but normally the Warrior far exceeds almost any rogue in actual combat. It isn't really a TTRPG thing, I think it's MMO concepts influencing the archetype. I remember reading a WoW preview back in 2003, where they described Rogues are the ultimate melee damage dealer, and thinking to myself "That's actually really brilliant, and would be great in D&D. Fighters are defensive, and Rogues are offensive." Doing a little digging, it looks Everquest rogues are also dedicated damage dealers, and that would date back to 1999. Also worth noting that Final Fantasy hasn't had a Thief character as a secondary combatant since Zidane in FFIX. The thief job in FFXI is melee damage oriented, as is the rogue job in FFXIV. Seems like a classic case of archetype shift, much like druids going from nature priests into being iden...

    In the next movie, if the Knights of Ren are in it (and the poster indicates they are) by necessity something would need to balance it out, such as one of them joining Rey, Rey becoming even more powerful than all of them, or another light side user rising up. I'm thinking one of them may turn and join the light side, or all but one will be killed off.As I mentioned upthread, I think that guy that Kylo is seen taking down with his lightsaber in the red-tinged forest in the teaser trailer is one of the Knights of Ren.

    The way that the sequel trilogy takes it, I think is that the idea is that there is balance between force users. Annakin, in that way, really did finally bring balance to the force, as long as you don't look at all the extraneous material found in anything but the movies themselves. When he did the Jedi Purge and it was Him and the Emperor on the Dark Side and Yoda and Obi-Wan on the light side. When Luke first comes to knowledge of the Force, Obi-Wan dies. For that while, the Force is balanced between light and dark in the new ST way of seeing things. It is explained in TLJ thus, that when one side rises, the other raises someone else to match it. Thus, the idea probably is that Snoke came into being because Luke was there, and since the Force had finally been balanced, Luke being Lightside needed a Dark Side user to balance it out. Thus, Kylo's balance would be Rey. The idea Luke expressed in TLJ would be then, that as long as there are those on the one side of the Force, ...
  • 02:39 AM - jonesy quoted GreyLord in post Ubisoft supports Notre Dame with €500k donation, and offer free Assassin's Creed Unity for PC to all.
    I've heard it's a little more complicated than the Catholic church owns it. I'm not positive, but from what I've heard... The French Government owns it but allows Catholic Services. They share cooperation between the two in maintaining it. It is very expensive to maintain and thus most of the money to maintain it is via donations rather than simply being from French Taxpayers. Thus, any new constructions and such are normally from donation money and such. Notre Dame is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so naturally they'll be offering assistance in the eventual renovation. And while it isn't the Vatican's responsibility, their representative did vaguely hint at possible aid: https://cruxnow.com/vatican/2019/04/17/vatican-culture-czar-offers-optimistic-take-on-notre-dame-tragedy/

    Shorelock Holmes! You know, he had a famous brother named Sherlock that everyone always woos over...but poor Shorelock is always forgotten. Shorelock was the beach dude who was an awesome surfer. If there was a wave, he'd surf it. Unfortunately, he couldn't get further away than 400 meters before he'd have too much temptation and have to catch a big one. He always was stuck somewhere close to the shore. On waves, he'd obviously surf back to shore...and when he wanted to go inland, just missed the surf far too much. He is famous for inventing the quotes... Dude Far Out Spaced Curl And other such famous things. He'd probably be better known along with his side kick Watch Her, but that Sherlock just seemed to get all the media attention back in the day instead of Shorelock. :cool: That's a far far better answer than I was gonna give. Or should I say, "Far out, my dear Watch Her."

  • 11:13 PM - Dausuul quoted GreyLord in post The Washington Post Weighs In On D&D!
    (I have been wrong in predictions before, so they could be making a new edition in stealth. I think it would be suicidal for the department to take that risk and do so, but I have been wrong other times. I just think it is VERY unlikely with the current growth). My guess would be that they have a file somewhere with "6E Ideas," and when they come up with an idea that requires a significant change to the base rules, they put it in there. While I doubt they are actively developing 6E, I expect they have at least a general sense of what it will look like at such time as they do start developing it.
  • 06:44 PM - ad_hoc quoted GreyLord in post The Washington Post Weighs In On D&D!
    The point still holds true though. I don't know how you got that I think 6th edition is on the horizon. You made a big post about how there can't be 40 million players because the money isn't there. I responded and now you're talking about 6th edition? I'm confused. As far as that topic goes, sales of the edition itself aren't the only factor here. The brand itself is valuable and creating new editions weakens that brand. The soonest I have seen people predict an update to the edition is 2024. I could see that, not an edition change but something more substantial than errata.
  • 05:26 PM - Morrus quoted GreyLord in post The Washington Post Weighs In On D&D!
    It's too easy of a way to lose that many customers and rapidly deflate the brand. As long as there is growth I don't see any 6th edition coming. I don't think they should even consider working on it until there are signs of decay or a downward trend. Even at half the numbers it has a customer base far greater than even 3e did at it's height. There's no guarantee a new edition would even be as successful as 3e, so with 5e doing as well as it is, why change things up? My interpretation of the situation is that there will be no 6th edition for a LOOONG time. You'd have to have a major loss of numbers (players and money) to create a situation to release a new edition presently. That’s a pretty low bar for predictions. Everybody shares your prediction. Nobody thinks 6E is anywhere close.
  • 03:04 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted GreyLord in post How much do you care about "balanced" dice?
    I did this for a player once. Indeed, the dice switched to rolling higher numbers, so the curse continued. Then, when we switched to regular roles, they flopped back to rolling low. The dice know, somehow. I HAVE noticed this on occasion and if it is consistent, start offering to let the player do what I call reverse rolls... Here's where superstition comes in. I find when doing this, rolls start to turn good again...and it cures the curse of a low roller.
