    Any book that give me more monsters and Lore is a winner in my book. I don't pick it apart for theme and such, just base it on does it have enough stuff I like and will use in my game....this one does!

    Same issue here, no response a week later from my attempt at the contact form. I do like the option of the book broken out in section for use in game without have the entire book on the table and I've never been rough with bending the spine or wearing it out. Guess I got that habit from my early comic, graphic novels and novel days :) I'm hoping for some cool stuff in it but mentally ready...

Not impressed at the moment by the lack of replies. I'll probably get the - we were so busy and overwhelmed during the stream that we couldn't respond" but I'm not buying that to be...

    I created the first level using the 3D program, tabletop connect that was bought out by fantasy ground. I'm guessing then that fg will have the maps for each level and room so I'm in just for this one and the heist one. If they make a box for undermountain for 450, I'll grab it too like I did for the heist one.

    Just think of the fun with usable digital maps for undermountain! So much better than the fold out maps you could never use on the table.

    Anyone watching that is also active on enworld would have posted the info no matter who was "covering" it for enworld.

  • 08:10 PM - Koren n'Rhys mentioned EthanSental in post Mentzer's Epic Worlds of Empyrea Kickstarter Launches For 10 Game Systems!
    I'll be interested to see how it all plays out, for sure. I'd love a BECMI box set, but the price is too steep for my blood, unfortunately. It does seem ambitious, yes, but Frank seems to be trying to do it right and get lots of help. Some hefty pledge levels there though, for what you seem to get. YMMV. EthanSental: Darlene was the artist who did the big two poster hex map of Greyhawk from the original folio and box set - HUGE nostalgia factor for new maps by her. And just to point out, Tal'Dorei was a single hardcover book, I believe? This will be more akin to the old campaign box sets from TSR - multiple booklets, poster maps, etc. So much more expensive to produce.

  • 06:36 PM - Caliburn101 quoted EthanSental in post Skill Feats In Pathfinder 2
    Magical spell and ability skill don't really match up in my eyes as being the same. I'll pass on this edition until it comes out and see what the playtest molds this crud into. Yes - it's a pass for me and everyone I know in my two game groups, which it wasn't until this last release came out. Let's hope Paizo see some sense and drop this. Otherwise they are going to lose a lot of customers. If D&D was a superhero game, then this would be fine... but it's not, and the idea that a Fighter in full plate could knock a non-winged titanic boss monster off a mountain top, fall with him and after the massive HP-laden monster was pavement pizza, just stand up without a single HP damage and walk away is ridiculous.

    So was this many moving parts, mutlple actions and reactions and such seem like a lot for new players? Still seems complex looking at just your fighter in combat in my eyes. Seemed easy to me.
  • 03:56 PM - Jester David quoted EthanSental in post Second Dungeons & Dragons Product for Fall 2018: Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage
    Does it mean the possible other settings are fair game for other poeple to use on the DMguild? Or do they have to state it's not fair game since I wasn't not paying attention when Ravenloft was added with CoS? Maybe. When Curse of Strahd was released, Ravenloft was added to the Guild. They might be doing something similar here. I suspect we're getting introductory adventures, to introduce newer players to the settings' tropes and concepts along with starter regions and then opening up those worlds to Guild expansion.

    I find it interesting that it seems for every 1 that posts various 5e products aren't for them, apparently 10 people buy it anyway since the sales for the products are top sellers. Enough previous gamers and many new gamers are having fun with what they are creating. Perkins has been doing great as the story line creator in my book and watching him on Lore You Should Know shows he cares about the material. Props Chris!I apologize that I had the audacity to voice either disinterest or displeasure at this product.

    Can't earn it back if it never hits the dmsguild :). Here's hoping it happens before people forget it existed! I'm hoping it does sell well enough to intice you all to do it again. Great point. By now--at least in the groups I frequent--everyone that's wanted to play through it pretty much has. I don't think anyone I know plans on buying it at this point. Hopefully the late timing is taken into consideration, if the sales are truly the main factor as to whether it'll be done again. (On the other hand, maybe the idea of an in-crowd-only adventure book will just be swapped for something less exclusionary, which could be cool).

  • 08:26 PM - aramis erak quoted EthanSental in post Get Ready To Pre-Order Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying Fourth Edition!
    Never read any previous editions of it, might have to check it out as well. Key setting elements: Basically Early Renaissance Europe (Think late Holy Roman Empire) with fantasy races added. Much social inequality Xenophobia is rampant Many names are either bad puns, either in German or in faux-German Magic is dangerous and drives people insane Unlicensed use of magic is punishable by death. Usually, the accused doesn't survive to the trial. Mob justice includes lynchings and burnings. Mechanically: 1E: lots of attributes, some 1-10, 1x 1+, and most 1-100. Skills boolean. Tasks 1d100 for attribute or less; Some require a skill to attempt, others gain a +10 or +20 for the skill. 2E: reduced attribute list, atts 1-100 except W and MP, which are 1+ and 0+. Skills are un-, base, +10, +20. Tasks are rolled on 1d100 for under attribute+skill mod (unskilled is vs 1/2 attribute). Both 1E and 2E presuppose use of a grid or minis on table, but are not so grid reliant as to make ...

    One of the first bit of advice our marriage counselor gave my wife and I was to not use "You" statements as it tends to set the listener on the defensive to strike back verbally. Happening a bunch in this thread between various people a they single and an use You at each other. Cool it for a bit and moderate ourselves for a change? Thanks! I think it's great advice for everyone. There's enough suffering in the world without our help. We don't beed to add to it.

  • 05:19 PM - Mike Myler quoted EthanSental in post Mythological Figures: Miyamoto Musashi (5E)
    I'm pretty sure Mike said Joan of Arc is next, though I'm not 100% sure. I have a build for her that I like and think people will get use out of, just working on the extra text right now. :D Enjoying the wrote ups. Quick question...he came up with the 2 weapon fighting style with the swords mentioned above but nothing stat wise shows this fighting style. Thanks! Aye. He came up with it but he's not really known for that being his style. I just came across that during my research and (for the like dozenth time in my life) been like "Whoa, Musashi. Whoa." Had to mention it. If you want to make it a thing for him, you can swap out the Defensive fighting style (drop his AC by 1), add in bonus action attacks with a shortsword (include that damage add), and lower his katana down to 1d8. :) I would increase the AC bonus for Master of the Sword to at least +2 and possibly higher to bring it in line with other reactions that do the same thing (e.g. Gladiator has Parry that adds +3 as a reaction) You ...

  • 08:15 PM - Saelorn quoted EthanSental in post Pathfinder 2's New Alchemist Class Previewed!
    Kind of surprised that alchemist and oracle are most popular classes in PF1.I'm surprised about the alchemist. I'm not at all surprised about the oracle. The oracle is basically everything good about the sorcerer, but better. Better spells, more spells known, better class abilities, better stats and proficiencies. If you didn't want to go through all of the trouble of playing a prepared caster, the oracle was pretty much the only real alternative.

    I was going to order a copy from the goodman games website but found when I went that it had sold out. That's good news to hear so it was received well enough to sell out and they are going to do a 2nd printing. Hopefully, they will get a better quality print run out of the 2nd printing and thus print more than they did for the first!

  • 11:38 AM - Aldarc quoted EthanSental in post Pathfinder 2 Playtest Preorders, Podcasts, & "Pathfinder 1.5"
    Correct - I played PF for about 5 years to fill in the gap of 4e as our group didn't like it so I'm aware of its MO. It's that MO of over 2k in feats that ended up frustrating us and the need for herolabs to even keep up with stuff and switched to 5e. I'll wait until it comes out but hard to deny that feats are going to be a heavy part of the game on what paizo has stated. Ancestry feat, class, etc.Most definitely, but it appears that Paizo is aiming with PF2 to integrate a lot of related systems into a more cohesive whole (e.g., feats/talents, skills/saves/weapons/initiative, etc.), and feats appear part of that integration process. I am much more interested in the whole than I am the individual pieces being previewed. I kinda find the feats system of 5e unsatisfying so I'm intrigued by how PF2 will approach this issue. (For example, unless you are a Vuman, I think that you don't get as much 1st level character customization. Backgrounds are simple, elegant, but also meh and almost meaningless...
  • 08:53 AM - Aldarc quoted EthanSental in post Pathfinder 2 Playtest Preorders, Podcasts, & "Pathfinder 1.5"
    Am I reading this correctly? Fighter alone might have 30-40 class feats? I'll probably stop reading (and posting) anything pf2 based until the edition hits print next year cause I'm not in their market now with feats being given away like Halloween candy on the 31st. Even when it does hit I'm not likely to pick it up based on what I've seen so far. That's pretty much my first reaction. Do they really think that a metric ton of feats is a good thing?Pathfinder's MO as a off-brand D&D has always been its robust character customization. The "feats" are essentially renamed class talents. Here, my preference would be to wait and see rather than cast aspersions on what little info we have.

  • 04:23 PM - Kobold Boots quoted EthanSental in post Pathfinder 2: Fighters, Skills, & Counterspells
    The math of the old system, and the way some feats interacted with it caused serious balance issues over the life of the system. Above red copied from the article - so the way some feats or maybe half of the 2K plus that were in the game cause serious balance issues. How can any game balance how 2000 feats might interact? Keep the number of feats in check in PF2 and I'll check it out, but if paizo plans on mass producing feats like they did in PF, I'm hesitant to invest cause I know I'll lose interest 2 years in in trying to keep up. If I was to try to do this, I'd be using machine learning to accomplish it. When you think about it, the number of possible combinations of character builds is too high to human test everything, and the number of different types of encounter are likely similar when you talk about different types of monsters and terrain, and well stuff. It'd be a monstrously large task to get the data collected if someone didn't think of doing it at the onset of game development, ...

I share your concern. But I think itís safe to assume that the core books wonít contain 2000 feats, and that the feats they do include in the core rules will be at least reasonably balanced against each other. So, worst comes to worst, folks like us can run ďcore books onlyĒ games. Thatís how I tend to run most games anyway, no matter the system - the core rules are all fair game, anything from outside the core is off-limits unless otherwise specified. Then Iíll tailor what outside sources I allow to suit the specific campaign.

    Thanks for the reply and clarification. I've been enjoying the pdf links in the Kickstarter page. The samurai the crimson blade is a nice read and evocative in making the reader feel like the steam punk (arm) Japanese setting! just reading up on the iaijustu strike in combination with the dashing strike...holy wuxia type gut spilling strike :) katana, 1d12...plus 3d8 with the iaijustu strike means it a crit if you hit with the dashing strike....ouch!!! It does fit my mental image of samurai running past/through an enemy, the samurai stops while the camera pans to the enemy who is still in disbelief at the attack as they look down and see the blood start to spill like a fountain like a 70s/80s a Shaw Brothers king fu film :). Nicely done!! Thank you! I like Tomoe a lot but I think I'm invested most in Piasu--he's definitely not as brave as she is, but the erītokirā chapters are too cool (think space marines but hobgoblin steampunk samurai). It took FOREVER to get the dashing ...
