    Yeah, that may be too much. But aasimar can blend in, I guess. Kinda set my sights on that. Not sure what class yet, but I’m thinking either drunken master monk, druid, or some sort of caster.

    You could be very right about that. I like 5e better; it’s simpler and easier to explain to newbies (and I play with newbies often). But also it feels, on average, more balanced than the edition that ended with “use the book of nine swords or be hopelessly outclassed”.

    Alright, thanks! I saw the story beats and I'll see if I can read some of the IC thread. A prisoner seems like a very good point of introduction. In your RG you say you prefer "core" races but accept 1-2 outliers. Are aasimar or eladrin possible? Or (not sure if they feature in your world) "exotic" subraces such as drow, duergar or shadar-kai? Just asking so I know if I should even consider...

    I'm interested in that open spot if it's still open. If I read correctly, you've got a halfling ranger, an elf wizard, a dragonborn paladin, a human cleric, and a centaur fighter, right? (Edit: That is one more than the 4 mentioned above. Which dropped out?) Would you guys prefer a specific niche for me to play?

Then he moved in again, launching another rapid series of punches against the thick dragonhide, his knuckles bleeding from the tough scales, but ignoring the pain.

    Interesting that 4e seems to be (slightly) in the lead in the poll. It's not my cup of tea; I was certain that 3.x would far outpace the others. My own vote is 3.5 although I'm almost completely over to 5e these days. I started with 2e and it was fun, but I thought 3.5 was more user-friendly (BAB versus THAC0!). Of course, it was also the edition with the most...

    The rope you all climbed up with is not there (so whoever's rope it was, mark it off). It is difficult to tell season, or even the time, with no real sun in the sky. You were in the equivalent of around early to mid-September. It is decidedly chillier right now, with a cold breeze and a bit of light rain.

    Tommi, Enseth, & Titus vs Bugbear1 Hearing the commotion from across the common room, Enseth and Titus left off searching the Wizard's room and rushed out to help. Tommi imagined someone was there to help him, but it was only the force of Enseth's missiles striking the large hairy goblin. Jynn's boy stabbed at the brute with Gutter, but he could not generate enough force to pierce the bugbear's thick hide. "Ha!" scoffed the hairy brute as it was grazed by Titus' bolt, "You no kill Shorgg, liddle man-child!" He carried Tommi around the corner to avoid further fire and slammed the young man up against the wall, choking him still. Two more bugbears that were behind them lurking in the shadows of the dark basement, ran past. They burst forth into the common room, howling and brandishing large fiendish-looking clubs. Still Angis @KahlessNestor to go. (I'll get to Dandin & the NPCs then, too!) Damage Taken: (BGs) BB1 13 (Enseth's MM) & 2 (Titus' EB); (PCs) Tommi 7 (BB1's hairy mitts); (NPCs) None Bugbear1 auto-damage vs Tommi (still grabbed) 2d8+3: 7 [2d8=3, 1]

    KahlessNestor I was just checking out your latest post and I have two questions: 1: If you are using Planar Warrior (As a bonus action, choose one creature you can see within 30 feet of you. The next time you hit that creature on this turn with a weapon attack, all damage dealt by the attack becomes force damage, and the creature takes an extra 1d8 force damage from the attack.) Where is your extra 1d8 damage? 2: What's the opportunity attack for? Just in case someone provokes?

    Sure enough, one of the Pterafolk flew into the cave attempting to get at the Sticks from behind. Rodrigo was there to intercept the creature. Feel free to make your readied attack, Ancalagon. Just KahlessNestor to go and I'll resolve this round.

The force that passed through was the real threat, apparently. Arduniel meets the diseased. Now, they are fully recovered. All three tainted heroes, plus Allanor, are here. They felt they had to move towards the castle with all urgency, seeking out a tome held by the Priestess - they dreamed about it, or so they say. They're kept on a short leash, though: they attacked everyone and everything on sight as they arrived. Inside, the ruins aren't terribly different. The only true distinction appears on the back rooms, where the Priestess kept her altar: the sanctuary spell fell, the room's been ravaged and the priestess vanished. No one remains, except the dead - both drow and owls. The faint presence of a couple of teleportation spells remain in the air, marks on the floor denouncing it.

    @KahlessNestor is unusually quiet and this is still in early introductions he'll easily catch up. As Saarthax and Bernold enter the church they catch the attention of an old man shuffling up the aisle. “Good evening.” He greets as he eyes the strangers. After a moment he adds, “I am Father Belderone, and I can guess as to who you are. I am sorry to hear of your father. I see you serve Cavall. You are most welcome here, in the church. I wish I could say the same for the town. What can I do for you?" “Stay out of trouble!” one well-dressed man calls, “We don’t take kindly to ratcatchers here, get your food and get out.” Orin easily finds a table in the mostly empty inn and is quickly served by a young girl – the spitting image of the older woman behind the bar. The inn is surprisingly cool inside, the doors and windows open to allow in the evening light and air, and it’s easy to imagine the large room becoming hot and stuffy with the whole town crowded in.

    That sounds great. I kind of see Eowyn as sort of like Zecora from My Little Ponies. That strange woman of the woods. She is odd. Never talks. Sometimes stands there in the middle of the street and just...stares. Likes to watch paint dry and grass grow. I had to look that up. My daughter only watches one DVD of my little ponies and its an old school original moved to DVD. I'm pretty sure we'll soon be sick of My Liitle Pony though, she's going ever more mad for ponies in general. KahlessNestor it's like we woke a dragon by talking about this. My daughter found MPL on Netfilx just after these posts, and now wants to watch it all the time. The newer stuff is not the same as the sickening show I remember my sister watching when we were kids.

    ...scorvers a frightening amount of magical statues and idols around the studios and tents. As he expected, most of them portray the ancestor’s cult, typical of the Fey. Still, a few statues translate the new elfic patheon, something represented by the Priestess’ practices around Alessia. Some of the statues have been enchanted to create emotional reactions on the worshippers – from fear to comfort. Others have been prepared as fertility charms, or simply as pieces to harness magical forces. Some have also been prepared to house natural spirits, while others have been made to become funeral icons. The ones that interest Daxio the most, though, are those that have been destroyed. They held language and illusion enchantments, preserving messages and tales delivered by the Lyllend as prophecies. He seeks out for any other pieces of information, but it seems that most of the studios were destroyed, along with their owners...

Watching from afar Morgrym already understands the nature of the deals: both Willy and Tessa employ bartering charms, using magic to sweeten deals and smooth the talk. Between them, the mushrooms hold natural properties themselves: the batch they're negotiating seems to increase perception and create illusions, all at once... They could certainly be used in interesting alchemic experiments... The youth pulls a couple of mushrooms and waves them in front of the group. "Smell this...

    KahlessNestor I should probably have looked at all the posts in the thread before replying. I didn't see you had posted the character already. Anyway Eowyn looks good, I'll have to think on what her discovery is. If you're from near Gravesford, you'll know many of the villagers, but as a hermit, I guess avoid them most of the time, except for a young wizard names Pinna. She often comes into the forest to gather herbs and plants for spells and potions. She is very respectful of the forest and only takes small quantities that leave the plants able to recover. She is well liked in the town, especially the children, where she runs a shop of cures and potions.

    I've added a bit to the background in post 1 I'm looking at a human Noble wizard or sorcerer...still mulling the exact options. A possible hook for this could be that your father/uncle/whatever was a vassal to Baron Bedegar. After Bedegar was killed and Lord Saxton took power, you father was accused of treason/heresy (real or not) and put to death, his lands taken and given to Lord Saxton's lackeys. You've been away and are returning to find the truth. @Herosmith14 Perhaps the resistance has heard of the happenings in Bedegar and suspect Ajax is moving to take tighter control. You've been sent to investigate. @KahlessNestor This lady The actual character sheet doesn't seem to be there anymore, but the background works easily. She could even be from Graveford originally.

Everywhere, Moss realizes how messy the situation really is. Even though the forces focused on their eastern attack, the area lacks any solid barriers or frontiers. More might be hidden - after all, it's in their nature to act in secrecy. The very nature of the situation confuses Moss. why would they waste their forces in such a disastrous attack? After the task is done, the conflicts die out. Here and there, the hash consequences of the battle still mark the horizon. Suddenly, the encampment's met with a commotion. The dragon sees it from the distance: someone got caught and is taken to a central hub amidst the tents - probably to be harshly dealt with.

As Morgrym measures the strength of the auras, a young halfling of clever eyes approaches, chewing on a generous loaf of bread. "Heya! So, how can I help ya'll?" - he says, half of his mouth still full. The joyous expression vanishes for a second as he studies the group - or at least those he can see around - with a curious glance. "So nice t'see some distinct folks 'round these parts! So ya... You ain't from here, right?" - he asks in a low tone of complicity.

A wise but stagnant empire answers the call, hoping to serve the entity in exchange for salvation from inevitable destruction. 6. A great civilization discovers an ancient secret whose power both threatens the civilization and holds the key to its salvation. Link to the brainstorming document. Players: @KahlessNestor @Shayuri @Archon Basileus @FitzTheRuke @ART! That #6 was just me trying to smoosh together the first 5 pitches, so let's ignore that - unless people really dig it, I guess!

    In my head, no sound. But I suppose she could do that. A compromise with the rules LOL Normally the components of a spell are rarely a problem, but it does give the DM a tool to stop spell casters being able to cast all the time (in the same way you can take away a fighter's weapon). Somatic component? tie his hand. Material Component? Take his focus/pouch. Verbal component? Gag him. Its something that matters 1 in 100 sessions? so from that regard I wouldn't mind allowing a mute spell caster. My real concern for mute spell casting though is the silence spell. Its a VERY powerful anti spell caster effect that I am not willing to discard. If you really want Eowyn to not talk and you an think of a way to compensate then go ahead. We could just say that as long as Eowyn could speak she can cast the spell.

    I had a realization on the last turn that I built Eowyn as someone who never speaks. That...is going to interfere with spellcasting verbal components, since it it assumed you have to speak in a loud, clear voice. So I'm a bit stuck, since pretty much every spell has V. GM, how should we handle this? :/ Does she make no sounds at all? A simple solution would be that Eowyn whistles, clicks or humms the vocal components but otherwise doesn’t talk.

    Rolled a 1 which I believe is a double fail. Ah yes, I missed that. Sorry dude, I hate killing PC's even in games that are meant to be dangerous and deadly. Just curious why carrying an unconscious person is a grapple? They are not resisting? Seems like it would be more of an object interaction, and maybe impose some encumbrance penalties. And damn. Don't want to lose anyone! Looks like I misread the object interaction rules - just re-read them. For some reason I thought that having a tough interaction (like the stuck lever in the PHB example) required your action, which it does not, only a STR check. Treating dragging a character like a grapple just struck me as an easy way to to achieve the goal. The grapple automatically succeeds, since the target is unconscious, and movement is halved for grappling, so that makes a simple version of encumbrance. But yeah, it could just be an object interaction with an encumbrance penalty.

    I agree with Umbran that many people's trouble with Tolkien is likely more a result of modern people's lack of attention span due to television and screens than anything to do with his writing. I saw the same thing when Chris Claremont came back to the X-Men in 2000. Fans have the attention span of squirrels on crack and couldn't handle his deliberate story pacing, so he was out within six months and they brought in some people to hack out some terrible wrap ups. Personally I wonder if it was true that modern people have such bad attention spans then how come modern novels like Game of Thrones, Wheel of Time and Harry Potter are so much longer then Lord of the Rings and apparently just as popular.

I could do an Establishment with her, like a tavern or a theatre, and sure, Gravesford could be her home. But that might be too many casters if Max is doing a wizard or sorcerer. We probably need some healing, so maybe I will look into a druid. The character sheet worked on my phone when I tried. If you want to play her, that's fine. If there is a lack of healing characters in a party I don't mind handing out some extra healing potions as you go.

By the way, I just read this and I like it: http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/unearthed-arcana/sidekicks Can Sayine be Theremin's sidekick? ;-) Cheers, Sg

    Yes, you can, but it's quite another big change to the Nentir Vale cosmology. I'm not sure I agree. As others pointed out, there were already gods running around in disguise in the NV, but more than that, I don't think it's a big deal to have some gods just pop down and hang out, but the PS keep them from exerting real power on the material plane. I also put Bane among the gods worshiped by common folk. Like, he was the god of town guards and soldierly people who protected the Vale. I may do the same in my world! And maybe in part of my Toril games. I really, really love the fact that people still remember that article so fondly. It's one of the ones I'm the most proud of. :D But I do have to say... At the risk of sounding a bit jerky, I'm delighted to hear this. I certainly didn't have any ulterior motive for including exarchs of two different roles--I just did what felt right for the god--but I'm glad they threw off these efforts. The exarchs were never meant to constrain t...

    But that requires a Readied Action (normal counterspelling). Arcanists have a variant on countering that is an Immediate Action, which requires a spell slot one higher than the spell being countered. Daxio wasn't holding his action, so would have to use the variant, but doesn't have the requirements. (Teleportation is 5th level). Yes, it does...unless your DM tells you you can do it. "I am unwilling to accept the parley after being attacked suddenly, without warning under the condition favoring you so heavily. The only reason you seek parley is to delay us, confuse the issues and maybe gain the book peacefully for which you came with conquest in mind. This is far from whole scale invasion of the surface, but more than enough power was here that you would easily succeed without heroes here to thwart you." Arduniel speaks after careful deliberation. "You are drow. Or thiefling. Or whatever you are. Lying is your nature. Would you willingly submit to truth magic?"

    Yes, you can, but it's quite another big change to the Nentir Vale cosmology. However, it is completely in cannon that a powerful enough priest can summon an aspect of a god. So maybe you can't wrestle Kord, in his entirety, but you can wrestle a piece of Kord anywhere in the Vale that has a priest with enough juice. I don't recall if they stat'd out the aspect of Kord, but I remember they did for Bane (in fact, two different aspects) and Moradin.

    My preferences are for about a further 20% detail;) I like 4e and POL (despite not playing in Nentir vale - we played in POL version of Mystara). But I have two slight issues with POL and Nentir vale as written. One is a question of realism - where do the people in Fallcrest get their food and survive if kobold colonies are 10 miles away? Another is the the stakes in POL - I think the 'lights' have to really shine and be worth the PCs frighting for. I am not sure they do in Nentir vale setting. Would anybody miss Fallcrest if it fell? So yeah I think a good campaign in a POL mind set is great - but I think Mearls takes pushes it away from what I prefer form POL setting. This is a problem that comes up a lot for me in "psuedo-dark ages means life should be super dangerous" games. The actual dark ages weren't nearly as dark as such games want to be, but they don't account for the difference in terms of how people actually life their daily lives. You would. You were born there. You grew up there....

    I think another thing Mearls is undoing about the Dawn Cosmology is the Primal Spirit. Kord can't run around challenging mortals to arm wrestling in traditional NV because he is kept out by the Primal Spirit. I always like the "Primal" path idea, for druids, especially.Well, both Melora and Kord are considered Primal Spirits by the Primal Spirits (according to the Primal Power sourcebook). But, I don't think Mearls has taken that into account.

I thought he was a proponent of the primal spirit power source. I recall he talked at one point about making a 4e warden-like subclass for the barbarian (in fact, this is one of the things I am hoping for out of this homebrew). Of course, support for the power source doesn't necessarily mean support for "primal spirits are keeping gods, primordial, and demon lords out of the surface of the world." If it was me, I would keep that, but suggest the primal spirits needed followers to complete some kind of difficult ritual to keep the Powers out, and suggest that the ritual didn't work so well last time so the followers might need to hire adventures to get some magguffins that would let them do some kind of super-ritual to repai...
