    Or, one could simply make a variant version of a magic item ( similar to the Variant option for wands on DMG pg 141), in this case a Ring of (limited) Invisibilty which bestows the same ability as the legendary counterpart but has a limited number of uses. Or even make something like a Wand of Invisibility ( with 7 charges/ 3 uses per day/etc) which allows its wielder to cast the 2nd level spell.

    the Ring of Invisibility allows its wearer* to become invisible, not cast the 2nd level spell. And it allows you to do this all day long, as an action, without concentrating, similar to any creature that has the at will ability to turn invisible (i.e. some Yugoloths, Pixies, etc). That is far superior to any spellcaster burning up his spell slots, and maintianing concentration on the '2nd level...

    It should be mentioned, anytime a spellcaster takes damage, they make a Constitutions Save to maintain Concentration, and therefore if they are under the frightened condition, they save at disadvantage.(Edit: this incorrect, Frightened does not incur Disadvantage to a saving throw) Technically, the PHB advises this in the last paragraph describing Concentration, albeit with regards to...

    I ran this as a one shot ( it was actually a 10 hour marathon...) for a group of 7, and it was a blast, a lot going on, a good blend of RP opportunity mixed with Hack & Slash, which went over well for the group since it was a F2F reunion of sorts and we had several different play-styles representing.

    The Potion of Invisibility being very rare, perhaps has to do with the ingredients needed to make it. However, regarding the Ring of Invisibility being legendary, this is due to it allowing its wearer to cast Invisibility repeatedly, as an action. furthering on the above, invisible as a condition is a huge tactical advantage in 5E game mechanics, therefore it belies the need for it to be...

    well, the last few pages have convinced me that though we (our group, about 10 players total, who all still play together F2F in various campaigns) started with red box, evolved into AD&D and then used much of the plethora of material from 2e to supplement our rule system, I must un-vote 1E and vote 2E, to prove a point. After 2E, and certainly after the corporate takeover and almost death...

    I'd say Greyhawk is the equivalent of McDonalds (i.e., FR owners) buying In and Out Burgers and stripping what IP they could from it and reskinning the end product as their own, shelving the rest, and 30 years into the future all burgers are McDonalds burgers, In and Out burgers have no canon to bring forth to the fight.

    and aside from all of the above, we haven't even mentioned the issues regarding clerics and paladins healing and curing everyone. Why does a paladin and cleric not just stick around at the watering hole and cure disease on the populace for donations to the temple? perhaps, all paladins are gnomes and gnomes only swing rapiers with abandon?

    I believe the origin of metallic dragons had more to do with in-game currency and metallurgy than it had to do with scientific discovery of those metals. The mystery, though added later in an issue of Dragon, is why they added Bronze and Brass instead of Iron and Electrum dragons, which IMO is due to armor and weapon types ( Iron weapons, Bronze Plate, et al) more so than currency. 50cp 10sp...

  • 05:48 PM - CleverNickName mentioned Radaceus in post Critical Role Kickstarter Predition Game: Guess the Funding Outcome (GTFO)
    Radaceus: you mention changing your bid, but I don't see an "Last Edited by..." tag at the bottom. You must have changed your mind before you hit the "Post" button. (Friendly reminder for everyone: you can't change your guess after you post it, or you will be disqualified. See the rules on Post #1.) Quick update, as of this posting the "Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina" Kickstarter is at $5,052,929 and has 37,273 backers. It's slowing down, but it isn't stopping...it gained a quarter of a million dollars today alone. I also noticed that they added more stretch goals today, including A WHOLE SECOND EPISODE at the $5.75M mark. And they aren't just producing a single episode now, they are doing a whole friggin' series. I feel like I should add stretch goals to this silly contest.

Or I can NPC Scrag and you can create an additional, all new meat shield. However you wish to go is fine with me.

  • 11:22 AM - Yaarel mentioned Radaceus in post Strength is agile
    Radaceus To be clearer about what is being said in this thread: Dungeons & Dragons has six abilities. One of these abilities is called Strength. The Strength ability is responsible for more than Weightlifting alone. It is also responsible for ‘athleticism’. This athleticism includes mobility, aim, accuracy, and proficiency. This kind of accuracy in D&D corresponds to reallife gross motor skills, ‘big’ movements of the body. The ‘athletic’ aspect of Strength, is how D&D uses Strength for the athletic stunts that the original post visualizes, such as jumping and climbing. Explosive muscular power is an aspect of Strength, including the competent application of this Strength. It seems useful to apply the Athletics skill proficiency to any ability check that a particular circumstance demands: And yes, you could combine them into a single roll....for instance an Athletics Check and use the correlating Ability Score as needs be Yeah.

    A few quick notes. Radaceus Yes, you can crit with fire bolt. I have to look that up everytime. mips42, I just used some art that I had for Cade on the map. If you would prefer a different token, send me a link. Also, if you guys will let me know what your roll20 name is (right now we have three first names), I'll try to give you control over your token so that you can move them for your actions. You can PM that to me if you would like. I don't want you to have to give up anymore anonymity than you care to. *Edit* I also added numbers to the monsters: D-1, D-2, etc... That's for my convenience and bookkeeping. Feel free to ignore that.

    Thanks, Matthan and Radaceus for your comments. I will play Pell. While I very much like Iope and have been waiting to play her, I think the group needs a rogue more, and I'm intrigued by Pell. I've really only half-assed Pell, so I'll revisit him on Friday night and take another bite at the apple when I'm not as tired. Just as aside (but maybe an important one?), I don't draft characters with optimization in mind, nor do I play with optimization in mind. I recognize that optimizing is absolutely a legitimate play style, it just doesn't happen to be mine. And while I'm happy to participate in a game with fellow players who enjoy optimizing, I don't want anyone to be upset or disappointed when I don't. I could benefit from hearing you guys' thoughts on this, please. That said, I'm really looking forward to playing with everyone, and to playing Pell.

  • 10:49 PM - Matthan mentioned Radaceus in post Into the Dragon's Maw (OOC)
    CanadienneBacon onto Pell! I know someone else already looked over this, but I'm still going to scan it. I always figure HP through pure class and then add in Con. 8+(5*11)=8+55=63 [Class] 1*11=11 [Con] 63+11=64 HP. I think what happened is you worked with a Con modifier of +2 instead of +1. Easy fix. Also hat tip for wanting to make a strength based rogue. I'm interested to see how it looks for the rest of the character. AC was already pointed out that the Bracers don't work with armor, but the calculation otherwise is correct (St. Leather AC 12 + 2 (magic) +1 dex = AC 15 There's a formatting error where your Thieves' Tools runs into Skills. That's what led Radaceus to think you didn't have it listed, I guess. That's tiny stuff though. Also, your spells work. Radaceus, if you look at PHB 98 under Spells Known etc..., "You know three 1st-level wizard spells of your choice, two of which you must choose from the enchantment and illusion spells on the wizard spell list." That means, AT's get one free choice at 3rd (when they take the archetype), 8th, 14th, and 20th. That line is a little buried and gets overlooked a lot. Same thing happens with EKs. I'm partial to that line because I just leveled my own AT in the Is'Merith game on this board (went with Find Familiar at 3). That's what I see. It looks like an interesting character though. ENworld total: 1
  • 09:53 PM - Matthan mentioned Radaceus in post Into the Dragon's Maw (OOC)
    Radaceus the character looks good. Use the staff of power as an arcane focus. That's absolutely fine. ENworld playing = +3. You seem to have a great grasp on the rules. Have you considered trying to run a game here? I mostly ask because I really want the opportunity to play in more games.
  • 09:44 PM - Matthan mentioned Radaceus in post Into the Dragon's Maw (OOC)
    Going through some more characters. 3SpdDragster I checked out the magical items and you look good to go. For the ENworld playing, I won't count an application against you so if I'm reading that sentence right, you are just DMing one game and looking for a game to play. So -1 (lower is better) Radaceus I'm going over your character now and just wanted to thank you for the thoroughness of the layout (and that isn't a dig at anyone else's sheet). If anyone is still working on their character, you might want to look at copying his format. I may actually snag some of your formatting for my personal character sheets in the games that I play.
  • 03:10 PM - CanadienneBacon mentioned Radaceus in post Into the Dragon's Maw (OOC)
    Radaceus, I realize you couldn't possibly have known this, but today really is not the day for you to make suggestions about my character. I'm tired after a hellish work week in court, I know there are errors on Pell's sheet, and I'd hoped the DM would let me know what I need to fix. That said, thank you for your generosity in offering the comments, and I will have a look this weekend when my brain is not mush. I know better than to post tired, which is what I did last night and am doing again this morning, but sometimes posting tired can't be helped; I needed to get what I had on paper posted for Pell so that Matthan could see him. Which is why I followed up last night with this post: Matthan, when you sit down to look over my submission, please give priority to checking the arcane trickster. I'm positive there are math errors, hopefully not too many! I am highly unlikely to swap ability scores (Dex for Str). Or to slap on the Belt of Fire Giant Strength. Neither fit my character...

  • 01:13 AM - Khisanth the Ancient quoted Radaceus in post Invisibility magic items seem overvalued
    However, regarding the Ring of Invisibility being legendary, this is due to it allowing its wearer to cast Invisibility repeatedly, as an action. Well, sure, but it's still only a 2nd level utility spell, and you still become visible when you attack... and then it takes another action before you're invisible again... It just doesn't really seem to compare with other legendary items on either the cool factor or the power factor. furthering on the above, invisible as a condition is a huge tactical advantage in 5E game mechanics, therefore it belies the need for it to be harder to come by. But it isn't really hard to come by, since it's a 2nd level spell.

  • 09:24 PM - Shiroiken quoted Radaceus in post Frightened spellcasters
    Technically, the PHB advises this in the last paragraph describing Concentration, albeit with regards to environmental effects, so not much of a stretch to apply the same to certain conditions:Yes, but that's only against spells with Concentration. I was referring to making the save every time you cast a spell while frightened, as a method to hamper the casters as badly as it hampers martial characters. Personally I think this is a bit harsh, and don't find the need, but I wanted to provide an option.
  • 01:47 PM - BluejayJunior quoted Radaceus in post Frightened spellcasters
    It should be mentioned, anytime a spellcaster takes damage, they make a Constitutions Save to maintain Concentration, and therefore if they are under the frightened condition, they save at disadvantage. Saving throws aren't at disadvantage when Frightened. Concentration is a saving throw, not an ability check. Personally, I don't have a problem with it. It's just something that affects melee characters more, like how silence only really hinders spellcasters and not fighters. Just different uses. That said, adding in a concentration check to attempt to cast the spell would probably be the best way to do it that I can think of. If you think it needs to be more effective against spellcasters, go for it.

    Matt Mercer's Gunslinger archetype is also worth considering if you are going to allow pistols Eh, you're better off taking the Battle Master subclass and simply giving the player gun proficiency and proficiency with Tinker Tools. The Gunslinger isn't actually very good at all. What we see from Percy on Critical Role is a result of the many attacks a Fighter gets, and abilities that the Battle Master also has, and the properties of the guns he built. The subclass is adding basically nothing that isn't in Battle Master, just different for the sake of difference, with the added drawbacks of not adding to damage like Manuevers do, requiring declaring before the attack (and thus wasting your "grit"), and many of the trick shots increasing your chance of misfire for no particular reason. not to mention the chance of completely breaking the gun every time you misfire, and the fact that the subclass only does anything at all for you if you have a gun, while a Battle Master could just pick u...

  • 10:17 AM - Scott Graves quoted Radaceus in post Firearms
    And, a sharpshooter ranger could (from up to 600 feet away) draw his bow, fire two arrows, fire two more, fire two more, fire two more, fire two more... have you closed the range gap yet? no? fire two more , fire two more... etc oh, you are close enough to shoot your pistols now, did I mention I was a horizon walker?... point being, having firearms akin to the specifications in the DMG, or a class archetype like the Gunslinger, is balanced as per the systems mechanics and no more powerful than other options available. Who gives a damn. The point is pistols will work differently than crossbows so one needs to think of them as something different, not just a riff on a crossbow. The guy is playing a pirate. I doubt he's min-maxing a guy. A single rifled wheellock pistol gives him the possibility of an Indiana Jones moment. Instead of taking on the swordsman he just shoots the guy. Then proceeds to dismember others with a sword while flippig the pistol around and beatig enemies on t...

  • 08:56 PM - Mistwell quoted Radaceus in post Help with Moon Druid forms
    Giant Spider for scouting back up with rogue. As one of the only beast forms with a ranged attack (and it's a good ranged attack), and spider climbing, and a primary attack which does good damage (if the target fails the poison save), and a decent AC I think the Giant Spider is one of the better overall forms.

  • 08:18 AM - dragonfriend7738 quoted Radaceus in post Need help with quests for creating life
    Wooden muscles: must be flexible, so something like yew or bamboo. ( though I am not sure why it must be wood other than wanting to add that aspect for a living composite) so in the living composite vein (hehe) of thought, following on to- Veins; Bamboo shoots, or reeds which also leads to- Sinew; as above both could possibly use some type of root, lets call it 'tangleroot'( hell we can call it whatever we want, this is fantasy after all!) Blood; Mercury, or quicksilver if you willI'm thinking the muscles should be wood because I'm trying to follow the current basis of Warforged. Also, I want to keep the idea of mixing metal and nature that the Warforged is currently known for.

Personally I would go Polynesia and lost world New Zealand perhaps replacing humans all together. If humans exist they could be limited to the coasts if say Kea are Lord's of the Alpine area and Kakapo and Kiwi are the elf replacements for the forests.

  • 09:57 AM - CapnZapp quoted Radaceus in post Cantrip Auto-Scaling - A 5e Critique
    Regardless, a cantrip failed save means no effect or damage. And? Did I refute this when it was brought up? Whether a save means half or no damage doesn't mean much. It's just one way the game can regulate the actual DPR, which is the interesting thing. That cantrips do nothing if the monster saves, encourages the caster to cast it on the henchmen rather than the BBEG. But that's nothing new, since BBEGs do not go down to cantrips anyway. At high levels cantrips is what you use for "filler fights", the fights where you realize you will win anyway and you want to conserve real power for later. (Unless you're a Blaster Warlock of course) And 22(4d10) damage at 17th level is no different than someone firing a bow, or swinging a sword at the same level, and stacked next to a melee class that spell attack cantrip takes one action of the spellcasters action economy, whereas, a weapon attack benefits from extra attack. Ouch. No no no... the four dice represents four attacks. Sure, a C...
  • 12:45 AM - quoted Radaceus in post Cantrip Auto-Scaling - A 5e Critique
    This is pretty much incorrect, only 6 cantrips require an attack roll (Chill Touch, Eldritch Blast, Firebolt, Produce Flame, Shocking Grasp, Thorn Whip). My apologies. When I read your other post I thought you were implying Cantrips were save-based, and neglecting to include all the attack-based ones. But, You forgot Ray of Frost. :) At any rate, whether requiring an attack roll or a save, cantrips can deal zero damage if either the attack misses or the save is made. I think that is the key point we both understand.

  • 02:54 PM - quoted Radaceus in post Cantrip Auto-Scaling - A 5e Critique
    Also note, Cantrips deal no damage on a failed save. This is pretty much incorrect. Many cantrips require an attack roll, not a save. Since casters are about as likely to hit as warriors, this makes casters at higher level pretty good damage dealers with cantrips alone.
  • 12:27 PM - CapnZapp quoted Radaceus in post Cantrip Auto-Scaling - A 5e Critique
    Also note, Cantrips deal no damage on a failed save. True, but at high level, your save DC becomes relatively much better (monster saves stay relatively low). So while the DPR (damage per round) of a 1d10 low-level cantrip might not be much more than half of the average of 5, the DPR of a 4d10 high-level cantrip is easily 80% of the average of 22. And so while the damage dice is "only" quadrupled, the actual DPR might have increased by a factor of seven. (Example simplified for clarity)

    just realized that one cannot stride x2, i was just DMing 5e and got the dash thing mixed up ;). it appears that one cannot move more than their speed, so you can stride x + step (requiring 10' of your movement to carefully move 5') fro 2 actions, as long as X+(step=10) =< your speed Whaaaa? I did *not* know that. Where does it say that? Also: There's a new update with new dying rules, everyone. It's up to JM if we are going to adopt all the updates right away, though. Are we?

    "Yeh, that Jawicho guy says he gonna do some awchemy, minds if'n ah can check tha out, I likes awchemy." Jericho is somewhat surprised by the knock but answering the door he stares down at Elkran with a raised eyebrow. After a second he shrugs and opens the door fully for the goblin to enter. He goes over quickly what he is attempting and then sets back to work. Jericho is quite proud of his Elixir of Life formula, even though he was crafting the alchemist fire bombs at the time, and was more then happy to drone on about the compounds and chemicals that he had used to create one for the very first time... I'm not sure how cooperation works as with Advanced Alchemy, Jericho does not need to make a skill check when I spend the Resonance Point. If we had more time then we could spend a couple of days and make some up with a skill check, but even my lowest one takes 1 day per silver piece I think and all mine cost 2-3 silver pieces.

    IMO, I didn't see it to much of an issue, rather a different take on the class (low spell repertoire balanced by being 'studious' i.e., well trained) Traditionally the sorcerer is not considered book smart. And hopefully they will address the spell repertoire by upping their spells per day.

    Character Sheet amended Okay, your AC should be 14. Because, presumably "everyone, but the monk, is trained in Unarmed Defense" And you use Unarmed Defense in place of Armor Proficiency in the AC calculation. remove {combat section - no need for a heading} Add "L 8" to Equipment (Total Bulk=3 L 8, Bulk max 5), especially since you are close to your tenth L. And then add it to the RG.
