    Heh. Two friends of mine got into a drinking contest at a larp. The only problem was, one of them was drinking vodka, and the other was (unbeknownst to the first) drinking water. It didn't end well for the first. No, really, it didn't end well. We almost had to take him to the hospital for alcohol poisoning. Because he was like, "Well, if she's not even feeling it, I *must* still be...

    Define "good". For example, if I am having one PC face off agianst one NPC, anything particularly complicated, or that will take up a whole lot of time focusing on how many vodka shots one player makes while the others sit on their hands waiting for their compatriot to become staggeringly drunk would not be "good". We wouldn't want to make one person the focus of the action for an entire...

    That's okay. Understanding may be achievable. Consider - fights are not the only thing in a D&D game. If a player (or group of players) is really interested in some aspect of the game other than fights, then maybe having the fights be deadly is not leading the players to their fun very well.

They are also giving a portion of the ticket sales to the charity ďFudge Cancer.Ē (That's not the real name of the charity, they actually changed the name to be more PG-13 just for this occasion).

    I think it might be more clear to say, a prescriptivist thinks we have rules for language that we must follow. A descriptivist feels the rules describe the language as it currently is[, and that as use changes, the rules will change. There is a better view, IMHO. Right now, short term, if you want to be understood, you should follow the rules. Long term, it is empirically shown that...

    Not necessarily, no. Specifically, there are games where you do not take on a role of one of the characters and all players have sway over all characters within the narrative. This would not be a role-playing game, but would be a story-telling game. You see, this is a problem with making definitions - you need to consider the *entire space* within which you are making your definition. ...

    Great list! I agree with you on Forgetful and Spendthrift. You can use skills with any attribute as long as the GM agrees, so intimidation and Disfigured would be a good combo for a strong character. A STR (intimidation) check with the disfigured trait would be a good combo.

    That being said... "the rules are descriptive" is insufficient as a definition. If nothing else, it fails to differentiate role-playing games from story-telling games, which I expect we would find are also descriptive. It probably also fails to differentiate from some forms of simulation games - like SimCity, where within a domain, you are largely allowed to do whatever you darn well feel like....

    I think pointing out that there are some actions that are not allowed is missing the point. Yes, my character doesn't have the wings, spells, or magic items that allow them to fly, so they cannot fly. That doesn't make the game suddenly 100% prescriptive. I think the central point is still there - if you are playing chess, you have a list of allowed moves, and *everything else* is...

    I suppose that should be the first thing that I do -- see if there is still interest in continuing. Ok, you might want to watch the thread that jmuchiello mentioned. Please don't post IC until you officially join, but we can discuss in the OOC what you wish to play and how you could be worked in.

  • 09:27 PM - Lanefan mentioned darjr in post Comfort withcross gender characters based on your gender
    But before we go much further into the details, remember that this is a multi-national discussion, run from Canada, and the rulings of courts in the USA are not everyone's context. Nitpick: unless Southampton somehow recently underwent a very significant relocation, this is actually run from the UK. Which does raise an interesting question: it'd be interesting to see a breakdown of what countries ENWorlders are from. It's pretty obvious the large majority are from the US, but after that...? darjr , got any stats on this? And it's relevant not just for quasi-political discussions like this. In quite a few gaming discussions recently I've been noticing* significant trends by area or region, one example being that tables in the UK seem to use minis/grids much less than tables in North America. * - though this may simply be a badly-failed perception and-or interpretation check on my part... :) Lanefan

  • 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).

  • 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. ...

  • 01:22 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.

    I love the changes, in large part because I can really just run along and not railroad the players, I could do that before but these rules help me do that. I have to agree with this. Moving from xp to advancement points is a good thing for AL. I think it's a powerful tool in enabling the DM and players to explore many kinds of resolutions to a scenario beyond fighting.

  • 06:59 PM - ad_hoc quoted darjr in post WotC President Chris Cocks Talks Magic and D&D
    Could be, but I think the number of players at conventions is a smaller part of the number that want to go. So large player numbers swells the ranks of convention goers, AL included. I also think that itís significant that the other big conventions D&D ďgoes toĒ have a large AL turnout, like winter fantasy and origins. But I do suspect AL is a fraction of the larger player base. I wish I knew how much. Maybe WoTC does? Yeah, it's hard to talk about without numbers. We know about conventions. Gen Con is 60 000. Most of those aren't playing D&D there. The active 5e player count in NA is 12-15 million. If I had to make a guess it would be that AL includes 3-5% of the 5e player base. But then, I don't have the numbers.
  • 03:30 AM - ad_hoc quoted darjr in post WotC President Chris Cocks Talks Magic and D&D
    Donít know the numbers but AL matters. The largest collection of AL games in a single weekend is happening at GameHoleCon and look at the guest list. https://www.gameholecon.com/guests We should make a distinction between advertising and player counts. Conventions provide what I think would be some cheap advertising. As far as player base though, they don't matter. If every player stopped playing at conventions the dip in the player base would not be significant enough to be noticed. Similarly, I bet a dip in the popularity of AL (if there is such a thing) has such a minuscule impact on the player base (and growth of) to not matter.

  • 04:11 PM - jhilahd quoted darjr in post "DnDSports": Competitive Play With Prizes
    I started playing in 1980. My very first game I was DM. And I remember competitive play, in fact some of my very first adventures had instructions for doing just that. But you were judged(usually) based on the amount of time it took you to complete the dungeon, what tasks you fulfilled/didn't fulfill(i.e. puzzles and traps). This seems more like a dungeon crawl with PVP elements not like the old school tournament modules where you competed to move on to the next chapter of the adventure. If it's that way, it'll start to incur the dread meta builds akin to alot of MOBA games. Where you only play this healer because X, and only take this spell because of Y. Forget narrative play. I don't know. Not sounding too great at the moment. But what do I know. Heck, I ran a game for the RPGA back in the early 90's where only 2 of the 6 man team I DM'd through the module provided made it on to the next round. And they had a blast, but it was limited RP and the end result was a group vote on p...

  • 10:20 PM - LordEntrails quoted darjr in post ÖWait till you see Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage (Spelljammer?)
    This makes it look like this is more of an adventure through Undermountain rather than a complete guidebook on it (which I didn't think could be done in a single book anyway). This makes me a bit less excited about it, honestly. Still excited, but less so. I guess I'll have to collate all the previous material myself to have a complete conversion of the entire Undermountain. Yes, DotMM won't be exhaustive. A single book can't detail it. It's in the neighborhood of 4000-6000 unique locations. Even at 4 rooms per page that's over 1000 pages. This looks very promising and I can't wait to read thru it. @machineelf Maybe they offer a map of the Undermountain level and a short adventure to run in it? Nope. They will offer partial maps of all 23 levels. According to comments on the SoME, they will be leaving much of each level unmapped. Well, Undermountain is 8 or 9 main levels, and multiple sub-levels. It's HUGE. I thought they had made the claim that this book would cover all of the levels...

    Back to real data. Is that allowed? I thought this thread was about random tidbits of information posited as facts with just a hint corporate malfeasance. :confused: But it is good that Waterdeep mod is selling well, I'd be curious to see what Ravnica does. Of the two, I'm looking forward to playing/running the former because it sounds like a solid city espionage campaign that I can adopt to my own campaign world. The latter? Meh. Feels more like a chance to cash in on MTG, but I'll still check out the reviews.

I bet if you state exactly why, you¬íd kill your already flagging credibility. ???? I haven't responded to you because I don't care about your accusations typically. I really don't care what you have to say in regards to those acusations, you haven't said anything useful to me at all thus far.

Please do not claim I stated things that I have NOT stated. I think what he said MAY have been misinterpreted by many here, and he was talking something entirely different then what people assume when he was talking about players (meaning he was not talking about active players).

  • 06:29 PM - Parmandur quoted darjr in post Waterdeep: Dragon Heist First Impressions
    Huh, Dragon Heist as a sort of Phandelver option? Well thatís cool. Other APs have had 1-5 material, but usually in a rush or saying "maybe start here after Lost Mines." But Dragon Heist is perfectly positioned to serve as an intro as well. More options.
  • 06:30 AM - Parmandur quoted darjr in post Waterdeep: Dragon Heist First Impressions
    I love Dyson Logos map style. Especially printed out to one inc scale it is very nice. Aesthetics and utility with maps are a bit of a spectrum. It seems that I always see a lot of folks complaining about the beautiful Schley maps for previous books, maybe WotC is just responding to feedback.
  • 06:29 AM - Parmandur quoted darjr in post Waterdeep: Dragon Heist First Impressions
    It occurred to me that waterdeep and the AL mods that go with it could be a part of the big gaps in several of the adventures released so far. For instance in the first two the players could spend some side time in waterdeep. Or in Storm Kings. Or Elemental Princes. That's really kinda neat. Oh, definitely: I could see starting with Dragon Heist, and transitioning to the back half of Hoard of the Dragon Queen, skipping the intro chapters and the caravan entirely...
