  • 08:57 PM - Quickleaf mentioned darjr in post Printing maps - how to do this affordably & with minimum headache?
    Thanks for the tip darjr! I always assumed large format printers were in the $1000-$4000 range (like what MNblockhead uses) and too big for the cottage I rent, but I'll have to check out my options on ebay and craigslist more closely if some sell for just $100. While I appreciate how convenient a screen + VTT setup is, I'm not the one hosting games, the place I rent probably isn't well-suited, and that's a larger investment of time and money than I'm looking for right now. Maybe down the road. So I looked over this one map, counting the squares... http://media.wizards.com/2017/dnd/dragon/TOA_Level1UN.jpg ...and *think* printing it at 1-square = 1" scale would meant printing it on a 36" (3 ft) high x 54" (4.5 ft) wide sheet. Unfortunately, exceeding 48" (4 ft) dramatically bumps up the prince on the various online printing shops I'm looking at (www.vivyx.com and www.vistaprint.com) and also gets unwieldy for the table we play at (my largest wet-erase mat is 34.5" x 48", and that *barely* fits). S...

  • 11:46 PM - Mistwell mentioned darjr in post Mike Mearls Happy Fun Hour: The Warlord
    What do you like about the Warlord? (And, for clarity, first, what do you mean by 'the Warlord?' the 4e Class? the general concept? John Carter? Travis Morgan? a specific Afghani Kahn? ... Terry Scott Szopinski?) I really liked the 4e class. I don't think it translates great in all respects to 5e but some core features can. I just prefer it as a subclass of one of: Fighter, Paladin, or Bard. I don't really think it brings enough to the table for a full class, for me at least. I can see why others do want a full class, but was trying to work towards outlining a subclass that some meaningful portion of Warlord fans might like. darjr earlier had asked if there was a 3rd party Warlord people liked, and I mentioned that on DMs Guild there did seem to be one, and it was a Fighter subclass. And that's when Ehren when on the attack, all irked that I wanted something different than he wanted. Which is not the first time he's done that here.

    I assume the answer is yes, but have you also done some analysis of the database workload and performance? A good analyst can do great things with partitioning, indexes, and table-specific tuning. Your assumption is correct. You can thank darjr for some wonderful work behind the scenes.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm 100% excited about DDB, I just found this a little more than annoying. Yeah, to repeat darjr... why? WotC has produced several written pronunciation guides over the years (one written by Frank Mentzer). Why is having a professional voice actor read them a problem?

  • 04:40 PM - DEFCON 1 mentioned darjr in post Encounter Roleplay interview of Chris Perkins on the eve of Stream of Annihilation
    It's a trick answer? darjr might be saying it's a "trick answer" because we're probably all thinking of the "new reboot" style APs that we get in the fall... whereas there's a good chance that the next book in the spring of 2018 will just be another Yawning Portal type book, in which any one of those modules could be reprinted. So seeing the "Isle of Dread" come back for example would not be nearly as interesting if its just reprinted in the spring book of old modules than it'd be if there was a whole new storyline based around the premise of Isle of Dread (without it actually being an IoD adventure.)

  • 06:06 PM - DEFCON 1 mentioned darjr in post Mike Mearls interview - states that they may be getting off of the 2 AP/year train.
    An argument you disagree with isn't objectively "flawed",e specially when you are arguing with strawmans instead of the true opinions of people. It is an objective fact that none of us play in the official canon timeline of the Forgotten Realms, because none of what happens in our campaigns actually appears as part of the history going forward. The timeline will never have what happens in our campaigns in their timeline. Now you can claim that this is a [overdone cliche] -- er, I'm sorry-- I meant "strawman"... and will say "I'm not arguing this!"... and that's fine. If this isn't what you are arguing, then my making the comment shouldn't matter to you in the least. IF you'd have said "don't spend your time on a book I'm not interested in", I'd be cool with that. Every one of us want books we're interested in. But please, don't try to show your personal taste as some objectively true philosophy of what should and shouldn't be done! As darjr pointed out, I did in fact do what you requested-- I stated my personal opinion that a 5E campaign setting book is a waste of WotC's time, energy, and money. And my reason for it was because it did not solve the issue what it certainly seemed to me to be the reason to make it, given by those that wanted it-- --they needed to know what was current in the timeline in order to play in the timeline. (Which *is* a flawed argument, because as I pointed out above, it is an objective fact that none of us actually play in the official timeline.) Now... if this is in fact NOT the reason any of you on the pro-side for a 5E FRCS are giving as to why WotC should make said book... then I have misunderstood your reasoning. Perhaps none of you actually HAVE a reason to give why WotC should make the book. I admit that is entirely possible. You might just want the book because you want what you want... but have no good explanation or reasoning as to why WotC should listen to your request. ...

  • 01:59 PM - Scott DeWar mentioned darjr in post Some notes on Spam Control & New Users
    From the Android ENWorld app I've noticed that a bunch of obvious spam had made the "trending" and seem to remain despite being removed. Any way to fix this? Lets add a mention to , um, GOT IT! Umbran, or should I have contacted darjr? Sent from my Nexus 6 using EN World mobile app Probably. For tech stuff, you generally want darjr or Morrus. Ok, let's do that then: darjr or Morrus.? Can this be a problem?

  • 01:22 AM - LordEntrails mentioned darjr in post New Digital Games Studio announced by the president of Wizards of the Coast
    I said it before, I have meant no hostility, in what I have posted before and what I'm posting now. @Morrus, I also have no problems with books, I thought my exchange with @darjr around post #98 of this thread made that clear. @Staffan, I see no point in discussing theft as a legitimate business option. A consideration, yes, an option, no. @Charles Rampant, I'm not bent out of shape. I'm amused. As Myrddin points out, most of what you ask for is already available. As I pointed out earlier, I find it amusing that people continually make the same complaints yet refuse to acknowledge that options other than what they have envisioned are available. Or maybe I'm wrong. Maybe your ideas of a companion app are something new and revolutionary, but what has been described in this thread fails to describe something new and revolutionary in my understanding. I find discussions on ENWorld interesting. One aspect of that is that people seem to assume hostility here rather than interest or critical consideration.

  • 04:27 PM - smerwin29 mentioned darjr in post Have You played In An Official D&D Adventurer's League Event?
    Thanks for helping clear up the misconceptions, darjr. There are just so many out there. Most are just a lack of information, with people going on totally incorrect hearsay or taking an experience from 10 years ago and assuming nothing has changed. Some of it is willful ignorance, knowing better but needing to make an irrelevant point. AL is more than just an Organized Play campaign: it is a tool that can be used in different ways to create some fun gaming experiences and opportunities--and that tool can be used in different ways. You don't need to play in public. You don't need to play with strangers (although I am so glad that I have, as many of my closest gaming friends began as strangers met through public play). You don't have to run adventures exactly as written. You can even buy the adventures and run them as part of your homebrew campaign, without following any AL-specific rules. AL (and other OP campaigns) aren't for everyone. I've got great gaming friends who wouldn't touch AL or other OP stuff with the proverbial 10-foot pole...

  • 11:48 PM - Erechel quoted darjr in post Archdevil Moloch (Mordenkainen's tome of foes preview from Dragon+)
    Erechel I donít think CR is supposed to work that way. Matched to level. 96676That is an unearthed arcana. It wasn't the premise of the DMG. A level 20 creature would have to be an even fight for a level 20 group of four. I know that it is actually an easy fight (the XP doesn't match the Average level fight) but a level 21 should be at least difficult. If not, why bother with CR?
  • 06:14 PM - Demetrios1453 quoted darjr in post Mordenkainens starting to show up in the wild?
    Roll20 has it for preorder and there is some info. I donít know if any of it is new. https://marketplace.roll20.net/browse/compendiumexpansion/4/mordenkainens-tome-of-foesThe "over 230 new monsters" is new, we had assumed only 100 or so from the previous "dozens of monsters" in the blurbs. That's a significantly larger than expected amount of stat blocks!

  • 03:30 AM - Demetrios1453 quoted darjr in post Podcasts of Foes
    Oh it already happened! http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/b-dave-walters-streaming-dd I had heard that part concerning the Archdevils before, but I do note that besides Moloch and Geryon being discussed in depth, they did go into some detail about Mephistopheles. So I do have to wonder that indicates if we do get some stat blocks for at least some of the Lords of the Nine that Mephistopheles will be among those.

    Congrats! And Iíll be right over! And whatís your favorite monster! Thank you so much! I've only had the book in hand for about 20 minutes so its all of them so far :D I'm still in the "smell the new book a bunch like a weirdo" phase.
  • 04:27 AM - Demetrios1453 quoted darjr in post Mordenkainens starting to show up in the wild?
    Joe Manganiello twitted a photo of a copy. I donít know if itís the same copy. https://twitter.com/joemanganiello/status/986773093111615488?s=21 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DbG45MIVwAE0Xt7?format=jpg&name=large It's nice to really get a good look at the detail of the special cover here. And I'm for the first time, I'm torn between the normal and special cover, as both of them for MToF are very nice and neither is (in my subjective opinion of course) significantly better than the other. With VGtM and XGtE, I had a clear choice I wanted (special for the first, normal for the second), but for this book... argh, I can't justify buying both covers and get it on DDB. I guess I'll aim for the special cover, and pick up the normal later if I get the urge to do so lol... Also, as I've wondered before, what's with the displacer beast on the right? This is supposed to be a book about universal threats and multi-planar conflicts, and everyone else on the cover looks suitable for that. Then there's th...

  • 11:10 PM - Demetrios1453 quoted darjr in post Mordenkainens starting to show up in the wild?
    Is it? In D&D? Or forgotten realms? Also the tweet is back.For both. And I doubt Mordenkainen would narrow things down to the Forgotten Realms without saying so (as he's from Greyhawk and since the book is supposedly written from a universal viewpoint).
  • 11:04 PM - Elderbrain quoted darjr in post Mordenkainens starting to show up in the wild?
    Does voiceofbrian having a copy count? https://twitter.com/voiceofobrien/status/986447393708113920?s=21 96556 96557 "elves are seldom frivolous and carefree"?!? That's an complete 180.

    More info! From Fantasy Grounds store which has some previews and screenshots! How long has this been up? Any new info here? https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store/product.xcp?id=WOTC5EMTOFSince late last week.

    Oh thatís such a cool idea! Thinking of any others? Not particularly. I've got the upstairs of this to post later this week, and I haven't redrawn the basement caverns yet which I need to do and post next month. There aren't that many dungeons that I love AND feel need a redraw at this point.

  • 06:27 PM - MonsterEnvy quoted darjr in post Check out the Astral Deadnought from Mordenkainen's Tome
    Adjusting hit points or rolling them is, imho, part of the DMs job. And itís easy peasy too. But I do understand that your mileage may vary. I have run this monster solo, and while the PCs defeated it, it wasnít easy. Throw in some backup or have it as the surprise third axis in a three way fight and it could be glorious. I always roll for HP for monsters, so yeah it is easy.
  • 05:26 PM - Dausuul quoted darjr in post Check out the Astral Deadnought from Mordenkainen's Tome
    Varying hit points in the stat block using the given range is hardly tinkering. I'm not gonna argue semantics. My objection is to where I have to spend time and effort figuring out what hit point value will enable the monster to perform at its listed CR. If that is something I have to think about, then the statblock is not fulfilling its purpose.

    I donít think you get flight just cause your astral. Close cause you can choose what is ďdownĒ but if you canít fly your falling. I think. This is almost correct. There is a sorta floor to the Astral Plane and you gain a movement speed (Walking explicitly not flying.) equal to 3 x your intelligence score.

    Waterdeep and the City of Brass. Speaking of the City of Brass (and I agree it's a key iconic city), when has it ever been detailed well by D&D? Is there a good source book for it? I assume Al Qadim had something. Maybe "Secrets of the Lamp" by Wolfgang Bauer?

  • 07:17 AM - KahlessNestor quoted darjr in post Are We Looking At A New RPG Kickstarter Record?
    I'll chime in and say it's not from me. Streaming is awesome. For me it was finding a way to watch/listen. It's not like a traditional tv show for me. I'll listen some in the car/walk/chore like a podcast, or put it on while doing something else. But there are bits I'm glad I could see in video. Especially Dice Camera Action lately. What can I say? I'm hooked! Critical Role is about the only thing I can keep up with, though I did watch much (not all) of the Strahd season of DCA. But on these boards, it almost seems like every time streaming comes up, someone has to pipe in with "I don't get why you'd want to watch other people play." I don't sit in the office Monday morning and interrupt my colleagues when they discuss the Bears game that weekend with, "I don't understand why anyone would want to watch football."
