  • 05:22 PM - Azurewraith quoted Malshotfirst in post 5e combat system too simple / boring?
    In my experience both 3.5 and Pathfinder have that issue, though Pathfinder less so (MINUTELY). I wasted a TON of money and time on both and that demanding specificity was what killed it for me. It was annoying how as a martial you had to be optimized to the hilt just to match the weakest caster in the party

    Experienced "Tactical" players coming from Pathfinder might find it refreshing that classes other than WIZARD/CLERIC/BARBARIAN/PALADIN actually do well in combat by comparison, though it may seem "tactically" shallow. Not pathfinder per-say but 3.5 and you are right the fact that martial characters are a thing without requiring a whole toddlers xmas of goodies to be effective is great on top of they then can do more than just hit stuff sans barbarian and champions.

  • 05:59 PM - DMZ2112 quoted Malshotfirst in post Can my table focus on making things fun instead of optimizing?
    I'm more for story vs optimization, but in my experience they're not mutually exclusive. The concepts are not mutually exclusive. Players with the ability to engage meaningfully on both levels are rare. "Stronger" people are harder to kill. If only that were true. It seems people mostly have issues with combat optimization, but you know you can optimize for the other two pillars as well right? Just as broken, just as annoying. Being an old grognard myself, I find it a bit odd that one would be so wrapped around the axle on this topic as to take these drastic of steps. Would you call it... badwrongfun? There are so many people on these boards that attempt to monitor, control, admonish the behavior of their players. It's badwrongfun to play one way or another. I don't try to control my players -- I can't. They are living creatures with free will. If they do not like the way I run my game they are free to leave. What they are not free to do is ruin the game by being selfish. I am beh...

  • 06:44 AM - Scrivener of Doom quoted Malshotfirst in post Does it seem like Nerath was dropped like a bad habit?
    That was SUCH a good comic. I'd rather have a one hundred more issues of Fell's Five than the pathfinder comic. The only thing that comes close is Rate Queens, from Image. These are the only comics I have ever bought. Love 'em. If the D&D movie rights are ever under the control of a non-nebbish, I really hope jonrog1 is the screenwriter.

    Between 4e fans necessarily including all those D&D-loyalists who adopt each new edition with enthusiasm, and there being no legal possibility of a Pathfinder-like alternative for any 4e holdouts, it was probably a no-brainer for WotC to decide to cater heavily to those feelings. There's no possibility of a Pathfinder-like alternative, but there's certainly the possibility of an OSRIC-like alternative. That was SUCH a good comic. I'd rather have a one hundred more issues of Fell's Five than the pathfinder comic. The only thing that comes close is Rate Queens, from Image. Agreed. Any D&D fans who like comics IMO should track down both (Rat Queens is an excellent current ongoing).

  • 01:57 AM - Raith5 quoted Malshotfirst in post Any authors you think should be in Appendix E but are not?
    David Gemmel and Steven Erikson. Gemmel's work may not seem like masterpieces to you, but to many others he's as relevant as Moorcock and Leiber. And Erikson...I don't know how the hell GRR is on tat last but Erikson is not. The Malazan series is more D&D relevant the anything in Westeros. I did not mean to imply that I dont think Gemmels' work is good - I love them - I just thought they were a bit pulpy to be considered in the same type as Moorcock/Leiber/Tolkien (despite enjoying Gemmel more than those types of books)
