    In all seriousness, I have two points. 1. I often run campaigns for kids to teach them D&D, and its a lot of fun. Every now and then, I run a PC in one of their adventures when they are trying out DMing. My experience has been that they struggle a little with spellcasting. So I never, ever, ever run a spellcaster as my PC. Just something that hits stuff. IOW, try and keep it simple for them-...

    Simple. Bards suck. Sorcerers blow. Wizards, well, do not try to play a wizard, for they are obnoxious and quick to die. By process of elimination, you're playing the Warlock. You can't argue with that- it's logic. Because you can't argue with logic, the bastard child of maths.

    It is times like this, and threads like this, that make me think we should re-evaluate the position of Bargle in D&D lore. I know what you are thinking. Bargle? The ur-Bad Guy? What could I possibly revisit about him? Well, the answer is right in front of us. Think not of Bargle as the evil and duplicitous slayer of your friend, Aleena. Do not view him as the person who taught you that all...

    In fairness to the concept, it's the problem of thread-drift. IOW, it's not just the responses to the OP. It's that people get involved in completely different discussions and arguments, and eventually the thread has been "highjacked" by a completely different conversation.

    The internet is naught more than the nattering nabobs of negativism. Just remember the Goldilocks Rules for Playing D&D. If someone optimizes more than you, they are a dirty powergamer that wants to ruin everyone's fun and couldn't roleplay their way out of a paper bag. If someone optimizes less than you, they are a hippy thespian that thinks roleplaying is the answer to everything and...

    Actually, that is a default assumption of the game. Killing is a default assumption of D&D. We can have conversations about whether that is a good thing, that is a bad thing, what that says about society, and so on, but it is a default assumption. You don't need have a giant conversation during Session 0 where you explain to the players that they might, in fact, end up killing dragons, orcs, and...

    The hardest things for new players, IME? Two things that surprised me (a lot doesn't)- First, their abilities. I expected players to know what they can do. I was wrong. New players do not know what their class abilities are, or when to use them, or what to do with them. Substitute "class abilities" for "race abilities" or "feats" or "spells" or "magic items" or whatever. It's not a question...

  • 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. Player A : Hey, I'm a lawful knight, why does your god keep blessing that shifty nerf-herder of a thief instead of me?" @lowkey13 : You're a gnome paladin with a rapier. Even my god doesn't like you.

    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.

    I know that this idea is not had by everyone but it seems to me that the Zealot is not liked by the community. According to http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?619716-Survivor-Subclasses-(Non-Magic)-THERE-CAN-BE-ONLY-ONE! Out of 25 subclasses it was the second one removed. Voting in the Survivor threads is done for a very wide variety of reasons. I wouldn't put too much stock in what you see there. (Waits for @lowkey13 to exile me from Survivor threads.) Haha, whom are we kidding? Survivor threads determine most of the D&D product roadmap. The whole D&D team read them daily and have a mandatory mid-morning meeting to discuss. (Hopes to be reinstated.)

  • 08:57 AM - Li Shenron mentioned lowkey13 in post Magic Item Rarity
    That's why I'm wondering if Li Shenron is saying the 5e artifacts are described as indestructible, or if he forget about the loophole. I really should read all of the DMG. lowkey13 already answered for me The general rule for artifact is they cannot be destroyed (not even with a sphere of annihilation IIRC!). As usual, specific trumps general, and each artifact usually comes with the description of the very specific way you can destroy it, and that's because most of the (evil) artifacts are used in quests that exactly have the purpose of destroying that artifact.

    ...eant that. Now, it happens to be my opinion that the Venn Diagram of those who come up with post hoc rationalizations for Warlock/Cleric "stories" and those who use the phrase "Warlock Dip" as something other than tasty Orc food is a perfect circle- but again, that's just me. As I already stated, people come into this with different conceptions. In my group, the idea of "designing out" a character is anathema. You start at level one, and things happen from there. I prefer an emergent story; but I (and my table) are not representative of everyone. *shrug* So when you go on about creating a "Spawn" character, or a "Ghost rider," all I can think is, "Well, more power to ya, but that's not what I'm doing." And it would be truly awesome if you would accord the same respect back. Know what I mean? I'm glad you are happy with your interpretation of the rules, and that works for your table! Go at it, my friend, just don't pee on my leg and demand that my table says that it is raining. :) lowkey13 I am not tracking the lack of respect.... I am just suggesting a counter point in a conversation for a different point of view. With everything you said, all your posts start from the Cleric breaking is vow to his Deity. My point is that is not the case if your starting as an unwilling or repenting Warlock at level 1. This is in no way a contrast to, "In my group, the idea of "designing out" a character is anathema. You start at level one, and things happen from there. I prefer an emergent story"... Your just a warlock that realizes you made a mistake and is looking for a way out of it. So from the perspective of emergency having personal goals is not a problem, it just good practice to develop investment and to have something to drive the motives of your character. I never said you had to plan to be Cleric or a Paladin (which I know you would never do) but it does make since if you have dark power of unknown origin and you have one in your group like I do for example you MIGHT look ...

  • 11:38 PM - 77IM mentioned lowkey13 in post Fluff, Rules, and the Cleric/Warlock Multiclass (WITH POLL!)
    lowkey13, those are great citations about the cleric serving the deity. I don't dispute any of them. But those citations don't mention a lot of exclusiveness. None of them say that the gods won't allow their servants to also make pacts. I think that's something you're bringing to the game. The only thing I see that comes close is the part about "...defeat its rivals." Now, you could take the stance that every god is rivals of every other entity in the multiverse, but that's not typically what "rivals" means. So, sure, it is certainly possible to imagine a person who is so devoted to their deity that they have been raised from the ranks of "mere" priest to be imbued with divine power to be an agent of their deity, and that person ALSO being so self-absorbed in their quest for individual knowledge and power that they make a separate pact with a different being, and that neither the deity nor the patron has any conflict ... I mean, anything is possible. Possible to imagine??? My und...
  • 11:02 PM - Enevhar Aldarion mentioned lowkey13 in post Fluff, Rules, and the Cleric/Warlock Multiclass (WITH POLL!)
    Can you find any support for this view of deities in the actual text? Either fluff or rules? Because your poll does not have an option for, "No. My personal opinions that I'm bringing to the game prohibit it." I am not saying you're wrong; I wouldn't mind playing with a DM who ruled this way. As long as they said so up front. I don't think the PHB or DMG or MM say anything like this up front. For me, what lowkey13 is saying would not be in the core books because that is something that would be setting-specific and would only be detailed in campaign material. And if it were, the rule of specific overrules general would apply. On a side note, I think the decision to make the multiclassing rules as an optional system, meaning all the classes are written as if it will be a character's only class, is what causes these unintended conflicts in what people think should or should not be combined.

  • 07:31 PM - CapnZapp mentioned lowkey13 in post [+] Design & Development: Magic Item Pricing
    lowkey13 this is because your example is misleading - exponential curves don't differ by a static multiplier Besides, a multiplier can't account for the varied shapes of our curves. Just look at the Pathfinder and DMG treasure curves (green and red, respectively) and how the red curve seems to catch up with the green at level 17. What you don't see in that graph is that Pathfinder races ahead to end up at a significantly higher gp amount at level 20 (I think the green curve ends at 900K while the red curve ends at 600K roughly speaking IIRC Edit: IRI or I Recalled Incorrectly: both graphs actually end at roughly the same point) In stark contrast, expressing wealth as level is just as simple a number as a multiplier, only it automatically off-loads the "curve calculation" onto each user. :) Obviously I intend for my final table to use gp values, probably selecting a single curve as a showcase example. How to serve users of other wealth curves is still unclear at this early stage.

    None of this has to do with issues of casual misogyny and sexism, or harassment that can occur in the absence of alcohol. Those are also issues and can be addressed separately from alcohol. So we address them separately AND we address the interaction with alcohol? In parallel? I agree. It's relatively easy to whiteroom theory how conventions should change, just like it's easy to say, "Men need to stop harassing." Great. What's a little harder is making that change.

    I agree with others that 5e has gone a considerable way (more than any other edition than 4e) to right the "we need a cleric" ship. Just stop and think about that for a moment, folks. 5e has 'gone' a considerable way, but the edition immediately prior to it had gone further. So it has actually /not/ gone in that way, at all, it's merely backed off from it, just not all the way back. Once again, 5e gets credit for moving forward when it's been going backwards. Over-correction? I don't think so. Even in 4e, you theoretically needed a 'leader' Role to restore hps & generally support the party, you were just free to fill that slot with a variety of concepts running the gamut of Sources. In 5e you can be a nature-oriented healer (Druid, maybe Ranger a bit), a divine healer (Cleric or Paladin), or an arcane healer (if you have a good singing voice: Bard). In 4e you could also be a psionic leader (Ardent) or martial leader (Warlord), and had more than one choice of primal (Shaman as well ...

    It is times like this, and threads like this, that make me think we should re-evaluate the position of Bargle in D&D lore. I know what you are thinking. Bargle? The ur-Bad Guy? What could I possibly revisit about him? Well, the answer is right in front of us. Think not of Bargle as the evil and duplicitous slayer of your friend, Aleena. Do not view him as the person who taught you that all you choices were meaningless. NO! Bargle made the hard choice so that you wouldn't have to. "My name is Aleena. Im a cleric, an adventurer like yourself. I live in the town nearby, and came here seeking monsters and treasure. Do you know about clerics?" That's right- Bargle taught you the one thing you needed to know. The best cleric, is a dead cleric. It's the lesson that is evergreen. Don't listen to the trickster. He's just bitter that the best cleric is a tempest cleric.

For two subclasses (eldritch knight, arcane trickster), because they placed so well in the gish edition, and because they weren't eligible against the regular fighters/thieves, they get a "pass" into the championship. Is this unfair? Maybe. So is life." In short- we've just had a bunch of "subclass" survivor threads. These are the winners (or top survivors, as noted in (b)). To do all of the subclasses at once would ... well, it wouldn't work. Heh, I think the original post should have led with that.

    Halfling: Human, but really short. My own 1/2lings are all about the short rest. Afterall, you gotta eat Second Breakfast etc sometime.
