    I mean, say what you want about the tenets of the goody-two-shoes, plot-killing, small-box-shoehorn Paladin, Dude, at least it's an ethos.

    This thread is inspired by the prior threads the core races, and elvish races, and so on. Most importantly, it's needed because Mordenkainen has brought us the BLOOD WAR! That's right- in order to properly celebrate the release of MTOF, we are going to go get down and dirty with out Demons and Devils! So get out your pitchforks, and prepare to vote. That's right- Ima list some Demons and...

    Impossible. Paladins are the lowest common denominator of insults; you cannot go lower. Perhaps you meant to call High Elves the Rapier of Elves? Super lame, but still annoyingly common.

    I was kidding, but only kind of. The thing is, it's all arbitrary. Other than very low levels, if you treat 0hp as death, after some adjustment, people will act very differently. If you are just tinkering around with death saving throws, exhaustion, etc., then it won't matter (or, for example, you can add a buffer of up to -10 or something). It's just variations on whack-a-mole with...

Now, maybe at some point years down the road, they prefer to go by Laura. You still call them Laurie not to hurt them, not to be a jerk, but because that is just grooved in your brain. Hopefully,...

    Stop trying to make fetch happen. It's that simple. You can't make your character interesting with their build. Or their backstory. Or their "hilarious accent." Or by playing against, or with, type. The character is only interesting in play. It's an emergent game. Let the character emerge. Sometimes it's awesome. Stop trying so hard.

    I wasn't sure if I should laugh, or give XP. But this is the truth. The issue that the OP has isn't with the class, it's with short rests. And it's the same issue any class that is short-rest based will have. If your campaign doesn't use short rests (for any reason) all short rest classes will seem underpowered. The solution isn't to buff those classes- it's to change the timing (even if...

    Because .... there were no Paladins for him to rid the world of in the Red Box. As is well known and cannot be reasonably disputed, Gary Gygax introduced the Paladin as an anti-fraud class in AD&D* to see if anyone was copying him. He didn't think anyone would actually play it. *Much like a fake town in a map.

    lowkey13 replied to Core+1
    But it does function well? After all, Core + 1 only applies to a tiny, tiny, tiny percentage of games played (tournament + AL + other games that affirmatively want it). It greatly reduces the amount of playtesting required (the supplement needs to be playtested with the Core, not with everything else) and it greatly reduces the overhead on the DM in terms of worrying about policing. That's...

    So, as a first point, it should be noted that this conversation arose in terms of D&D. I assumed this was known because I cited the specific threads in question (about D&D settings), I referred to D&D settings, and I posted this in the 5e thread, but to the extent this isn't clear- I am discussing D&D.

    Yes, but that isn't different from what I'm saying. To use your example, would a DM who is comfortable with extemporaneous storytelling poll his players and say, "Hey, we could either have this awesome campaign that starts in the city of Yeasand ... or we could just do a railroady adventure path I downloaded from the internetz that is set in Kara-Tur. You make the call!"

  • 07:02 PM - OB1 mentioned lowkey13 in post Dropping to 0 HP - Alternate Rule
    ...ore cinematic feel. At this point, I’m definitely changing exhaustion level 6 to be unconscious with the need to make a Death Saving Throw every 6 seconds (or 60 seconds?) if at 0HP and every hour if above 0HP. Exhaustion 7 will then be Death. As for the fidly bits, I think I might just make any action require a Death Saving Throw while at 0 HP and get rid of the dodge reaction mechanic. While I liked the idea that you could focus on defending or escaping while at 0 HP, it maybe feels a bit too gamey. Instead, players will just have to balance the risk of taking dodge or disengage and making a Death Saving Throw vs simply running and potentially getting an opportunity attack against them. As that change makes things a bit more deadly, I’ll think I might add the ability to spend half your level in hit die immediately following a short or long rest to remove 1 level of exhaustion. That should help mitigate against one unlucky encounter leading to a certain death spiral as well. lowkey13 - Death at 0 HP or say -Con HP is something I considered as well and would certainly help with the goal of making combat riskier, but those are still very binary states. I’m looking for something a bit more cinematic and blurry to give room for the PCs to have that last desperate chance to push on when it really counts.
  • 04:46 PM - Oofta mentioned lowkey13 in post Paladin oath transgression thoughts.
    When I hit this, I simply told the PC they had violated their oath and had no special abilities. No spells, no lay on hands, nothing. The gods had withdrawn their support and they were no longer a chosen warrior until they had made proper atonement. I could see going half way on this, when they go to use their ability they need to make a charisma save for example. Depends on how egregious the transgression was. As far as whether or not paladins are particularly powerful, I guess that depends on a lot of factors such as how many combats you have between short rests and other factors. Any spell caster is going to be relatively more powerful if you have a lot of long rests relative to the number of combats. P.S. Ignore lowkey13, he just can't handle the aura of awesomeness that paladins naturally exude. Especially for Sir McStabsalot, Order of the Holy Owl. 98406

  • 06:31 AM - Harzel mentioned lowkey13 in post DM Best Traits
    I'm going with communication with adapability in second, because the relative importance of all the others depends on what the players are seeking. Communication, on the other hand, is what (maybe, eventually) allows you to determine what the players are seeking, and adaptability is needed to (maybe, eventually) deliver it. In other matters... Also, apparently there are only two people on this forum who have more XP than me (Morrus and Gary Gygax himself), so I'm pimping myself out to catch Morrus. :D I'm kidding of course, I really am curious to see how people view good DM traits lol. 1) lowkey13, ironically the first to respond to your thread, has more XP than you. Did he not mention it because he is gracious or just oblivious? Inquiring minds want to know. 2) I don't believe you're kidding. (Just kidding. :)) 3) *musing to self* So now that he has made an issue of it, do I give Sacrosanct XP because being nearby I may bask in his reflected glory, or do I withhold, hoping to someday catch up and be King of the Neighborhood? Choices, choices...

The difference would certainly affect my votes. lowkey13, which did you intend to include in the list?

  • 09:12 PM - doctorbadwolf mentioned lowkey13 in post Paladins in 5e: a Web DM video
    ... Even a Crown Paladin can consistently be a rebel leader, or just let rebels go because she knows their cause is right, or stand in front of a corrupt or overzealous official/lord/guard/judge/whatever to protect someone from an exaggerated response to a crime. "They committed a crime, and the law must be upheld, but Mercy is the sister of Order, and both exist to serve the good of The People, not your personal resentments. Stand down. The punishment for their crime is not death, and I will not allow you use the law as a weapon against our people." -Your Oath of The Crown Paladin, maybe. I love the part where they talk about seeing orcs and drow and such and seeing a person who has been corrupted by their society or god, who can possibly be saved, and starting there, rather than starting with violence. I love that idea not only for a Redemption, but for Devotion or Ancients as well, or even Crown or Vengeance, though each will express that differently. Anyway, great video! lowkey13 what kind of Paladin are you gonna make, homie? :D
  • 03:36 AM - Shiroiken mentioned lowkey13 in post Dice Rankings - The Poll
    I gotta say, lowkey13, you are cracked. The d12 is BY FAR the worst die in the game! The only people who like it are barbarians and orcs :p For all the love you have for the d20 (which I'll grant, does have a game system based on it), you seem to forget that it's almost as round as the d100. I've seen those suckers roll like a ball, never wanting to stop... I want to love the d4. I really do, but I've stepped on far too many for that. In addition, I feel it's the easiest die to "roll" in a specific way to control the result, due to it's limited edges for bounce. I gotta say that the d6, the old classic, is the superior die. Not only is is common enough that non-gamers understand it, but you can pick them up by the bucket-full. Not to mention that two of them create that magical 2d6 :cool:

  • 05:21 PM - Paul Farquhar mentioned lowkey13 in post Mechanics of Revived Settings; your thoughts?
    As lowkey13 says, D20 was specifically a 3rd edition thing. It didn't exist before, and is no longer supported by WotC. Thus, Metamorphosis Alpha, Gamma World, Star Frontiers, Dark Sun etc where not "D20" (although D20 versions may have been made), and anything produced by WotC henceforth is also not D20. So far as WotC are concerned D20 is dead. Personally, I don't care what they call it, I just want something - anything - that doesn't have ******* elves and pseudo-medievalism. But from a commercial perspective, putting D&D 5e on the packaging makes the most sense.

    Something I find funny because of how the theme and existing mechanics interact is that a really good use of your Voice of Authority free attack is to give it to a Rogue. They will get their Sneak Attack damage since it's a different turn.

    Doesn't this same argument target class abilities and even spells, though? It can, yeah. For my part, I know that my feeling on this are in part a backlash against the overabundance of feats and skills from 3e and Pathfinder (and 4e's powers to a lesser degree) but still I'm aware, as lowkey13 points out, the issue's always been in the game. So I'm just feeling like I'd prefer a balance where the issue is mostly confined in the class/race abilities.

    Is now the time for the coup to finally remove the hated Paladin class? Personally, i have always loved Paladins, and even more so now in 5e. I can understand the hatred of certain Players that are drawn to the Paladin class, but they are still more tolerable than anybody that would ever consider playing a Gnome. Once a Paladin learns that Gnomes are the source of all EVIL, and are part of a global conspiracy to undermine whatever oaths the Paladin has sworn, then the can pursue the righteous Oath of Gnome-icide! We just must avoid any time-travel shenanigans.

    Impossible. Paladins are the lowest common denominator of insults; you cannot go lower. Perhaps you meant to call High Elves the Rapier of Elves? Super lame, but still annoyingly common. No, I meant that with the addition of a more diverse set of Oaths in 5e, Paladins can now be at least a little more interesting, which is more than you can say about High Elves.

    How Mainstream is Dungeons and Dragons with 5e? D&D is the same kind of 'mainstream' it's always been: the only TTRPG with significant mainstream name recognition. It's also moving units like it hasn't since the end of the 80s fad (OK, books aren't flying off the shelves as fast as they did then, but it's a different book-publishing world, out there). This isn't a great factoid, but it's pieced together from credible enough glimpses, and rounded off to make it look good: 3.5 moved ~375k player's handbooks over its run and was counted a rousing success compared to 2e. 5e had moved 750k books by 2018. TRS was moving 750k books per year at the height of the fad. Observations: There was no streaming, on-line virtual table-tops, open-source d20, character-builders, or pdf piracy back then. There has been surge in boardgame popularity for years, starting not long before 5e came out. There actually /was/ a sort of edition war back then, in the years before the fad got into ...

  • 03:27 AM - Shiroiken quoted lowkey13 in post MToF explains Rary the Traitor?
    As noted, any and all Greyhawk lore after 1985 is at worst just a deliberate insult to Gygax, is usually just terrible, and at best only aspires to a Forgotten Realms level of insipid blandness and is best avoided. That which I learned from The Castle Greyhawk module was not soon forgotten, or, put another way, when you clamor for an update for your setting, be careful what you wish for; you are likely to get it good and hard.To be fair, I feel that WoTC (mostly) did a decent job with the setting, as opposed to TSR's vindictive smear campaign (pardon the pun). The last 2E setting update wasn't awful (nor was it particularly good, but they had to work within canon), and the Living Greyhawk Gazeteer was a pretty good product (if not MY Greyhawk). The only thing WotC really did to hurt Greyhawk, was to make it the default setting for 3E. This took the setting from something very specific, sword & sorcery with specific lore, to become very bland and generic. Most 3E "Greyhawk" campaigns I p...

    As noted, any and all Greyhawk lore after 1985 is at worst just a deliberate insult to Gygax, is usually just terrible, and at best only aspires to a Forgotten Realms level of insipid blandness and is best avoided. That which I learned from The Castle Greyhawk module was not soon forgotten, or, put another way, when you clamor for an update for your setting, be careful what you wish for; you are likely to get it good and hard. This is why I'm good with Greyhawk, as a setting, being done. The red-and-gold box was fantastic, at least for its time. If WotC did a high production value (i.e. modernized) hardcover that was a straight-up conversion with a pull-out map, I'd almost certainly get it. Doubly so, if it was edition-less/evergreen or just had a few stats in an appendix. I seriously doubt that the current staff would be able to stop themselves from doing something cute, though, and adding something that didn't need to be there or otherwise botching it. They just have too much drive t...

    They say you’re a madman, until they realize you were a Prophet. Do you mean that you can sense evil, you can pick out dangerous creatures, in a special, magical way? Can you, as an action, open your awareness to detect such forces? Can you use this feature a number of times equal to 1 + your Charisma modifier? Look at PHB page 84. Look in a mirror. You will see the same thing, in both.
  • 01:01 AM - Elderbrain quoted lowkey13 in post One of my players wants to play a kid wizard like Harry Potter. Should i allow it?
    Sure. People play tiny, stupid humans so often in D&D campaigns that we have a special name for them. Halflings. 1) Children are NOT (necessarily) stupid, at least not any more than adults. I know kids who have better judgement than some adults I know! I also know (or know of) plenty of stupid adults, people in their 20s, 30, 40s or even 50s who are not so bright. Sadly, wisdom (or Wisdom) does not necessarily come with age... Now, where there IS a difference is in the amount of life experience and education, and in physical strength. 2) Halflings are smaller than most child PCs would be. The cutoff line in 5e between Small size and Medium size is four feet, and most kid heroes would fall into the Medium category (even an eight-year old can hit the 4-foot mark). Also, 5e assigns no Ability Score penalties to elderly PCs or NPCs (as prior editions did), so for parity I wouldn't assign Ability Score penalties to child characters, either. Anyway, PCs are generally supposed to be exceptional i...

    You can attack the hound, when you it will eat You can roll real well, but the other players' roll has you beat You can put your character in the mouth, but you can't stay there You can want the punishment, but some games aren't fair And you want your moment, but the moment doesn't want you We all want the spotlight And you want your moment, but the moment doesn't want you No one, no one, no one ever is to blame For anyone who missed the reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07vRNeuU7QM The bit about paladins is a petty vendetta. Vengeance Paladins know *exactly* who to blame.

    Yes, I would disagree. The Paladin is not just an awful class, it is the worst class, the class that other awful classes can look at and go, "Hey, at least we aren't that class." Thanks for the clarification. Hmmm ... I wonder how long a posting topic can be ... :erm:

    By the laws of the internet, even if you want to agree with the OP, you are duty-bound to disagree. So if I post that "The Final Word is that paladin is an awful class", you would be duty-bound to disagree? AWESOME! :devil:

    Labeling a post "The Final Word," is the internet equivalent of putting a "Kick Me" sign on your own back. By the laws of the internet, even if you want to agree with the OP, you are duty-bound to disagree. I disagree.
