    If you like lots of options then 3/3.5/Pathfinder v1 are the systems for you. Overall there's: *Dozens of classes. *Nearly any race can be made into a character race. *About 3x as many skills, rules for them all, & you assign pts to them as you level - so you end up customizing wich skills you have & how good you are at each (though many peoples skill lists end up looking very similar)...

    1st person, 3rd person, a mix, doesn't really matter to me so long as I know what you're trying to accomplish. That said.... A non-descriptive out-of-combat, 3rd person "I/PCs name do x, & rolled #."? Will usually result in a much higher DC than one accompanied with some sort of description.

    I don't use the 5e inspiration mechanic at all. You know what the reward for playing your character well is? More/more interesting things will occur. I'll write stuff more & more centered on your character. If you just sit there rolling dice but not really bringing your character to life? Then you're relegating yourself to the role of sidekick. You can change that if you want.

    Overall you won't have any problems. Just make the rules mods. You don't need any story justification. You might run into some interaction feat-wise. If you do, just come up with something that works for that particular issue & play on. And, after awhile, if you find these changes haven't helped your game? Switch back.

For that matter the spirits weren't even aiming to protect my character (she's not kin or tribe member either, but her unborn child is). They just couldn't protect the last heir...

It's worst is season 3 where they focus heavily on a time travel war. That wears thin pretty quickly & goes way too long. And it probably doomed the series.

    Well, kind of.... See, combat in 4e takes so damned long that it eats up time that could be spent RPing in non-combat situations. So it's not that you can't RP in combat, it's that you can only RP in combat. Almost. I exaggerate slightly. But seriously, we did find combat took too long. We solved that though.

    Absolutely. I think I only have a single 5e character, maybe two? (#s 5 & 7 below) that the vaunted guides would approve of. And that's because the guides are written in a vacuum. Yes, if you follow them you'll get a mechanically decent enough character. But the authors cannot possibly take into account key elements of your game. Such as: the actual campaign, the group, how the group...

Basic Information

About ccs
Introduction:
I've never found a game - RPG, miniatures, or board game I wasn't willing to try.
About Me:
I've been a gamer - RPGs, minis, board games, etc since I opened my Basic D&D set on Christmas day 1980.

Currently playing games in NE Ohio (USA)

I love toys & games. All types.
I'm lucky. I got to be a toy salesman for the best toy store in the world (You've probably heard our song ;)) for many many years - until we went out of business in 2018. :(
It wasn't the $, the benefits, the job positions/challenge, or even at times my co-workers, that made doing that every day worthwhile. It was sharing that love of toys by helping as many people as possible (toddler - 65yr Hot wheel collector, clueless parent, confused grandparent, etc) get whatever toy brought them or theirs joy.

My order of preference D&D wise goes:
1e, 5e, PF/3x, 2e, BECMI.

I gave 4e a 2 year shot.
I determined I didn't like it.
I don't bear the few remaining 4e fans any actual ill will, but I'm also not above poking them - because it's funny to hear them yowl.

    ...ere's a contradiction in the statements and I'd curious as to what causes it. Maybe it'll make him change his mind, or maybe it'll provide a new avenue for discussion, or maybe it won't. If I don't ask, only the latter is sure to obtain. What he does at his table isn't going to effect you and I think this thread has done a lot to show that both sides are right,neither side 100% but enough that we can understand that yeah people are viewing things differently and that's ok. Neither side is engaging in bad or hurtful game play, it's just a difference of opinion in a rpg that aims to have much of it left up to the players and DM. Oh, goodness, someone has forgotten their on a discussion forum. Of course it won't affect my table -- or will it? Because, in that 3 year old thread that was linked a few pages ago about NPCs using skills against PCs, I was on your side of the argument. Go read it, you'll see. I made a lot of the same arguments you and Ratskinner are making (and ccs). But, starting in that thread, and in a few more where I got mad at iserith (I've accused him of trolling, too, much to my future embarrassment), I started looking at how I run games, what I was doing, and realized that a lot of my dissatisfaction was how I was running -- what luggage I was bringing with me. I've changed my style since then, sought out a few good non-D&D games to sample different concepts altogether, and fashioned a different playstyle that's much more iserith and Bawylie that my old one. So, yeah, maybe this is the start of a change and maybe it isn't, but whether or not it affects my table right now, this is still a discussion forum where we talk about pretending to be elves. I think sometimes we get so caught up in the argument that we forget that we are all on the same side. We love rpg's! There are few enough of us out there lets agree to disagree and still hold each other in a positive light. You told us what you would do, how you feel about it...

    ...ves is great. Stack it with bless and you as a paladin with 14 wis are looking at +12 + 1d4 wisdom save at level 10. That really helps a lot. Mechanically that is awesome. But since my Character is Chaotic Good "Evil must be destroyed and i am the one who does it", going into Hexblade would really be too far into "please DM, i know it makes zero sense for a good paladin to suddenly make a pact with a mysterious, dark entity from an evil realm and start cursing people. But please, please let me cheese this game." -Territory for me to justify it for the sake of metagaming power. But it is a great concept should i ever start a new character that has a different alignment. And in that sense it certainly has more than enough fodder for a dramatic character. In fact in terms of pure power this is kinda what i am looking for but i can't justify this specifically, purely based on alignment. If somebody has something like that without the irreconcilable moral divide that would be awesome. @ccs: That seems like a narrow view. Playing a Paladin for me doesn't come from how many levels I have in this and that. A Paladin for me is a melee Combatant with magical powers. This one specifically is alignment good but you could very well conceive of an evil paladin (e.g. Oathbreaker) who would happily make deals with evil entities for the sake of personal gain. If I would completely abandon melee combat in favor of casting then I would agree with you, that that is not a paladin. But a Hexblade is most certainly a great evil paladin build.

    Okay, the three of you are ready. We have nothing ready from ccs and an open spot. I may have overestimated the desire to do this playtest here. I'm wondering if I should pull GreenKarl out of party#1 and just go with two groups of 4 players. I can only put so many "really"s into the thread title. So if you can recruit some more people without being annoying, please do so. Thoughts?

    ...lity, and the reasons the crew of the Enterprise doesn't come down and correct them is because doing so violates the right of those civilizations to learn about the truth for themselves. However, it breeds a sense of superiority doesn't it? Anyone visiting that planet from space knows that these people have no idea what is actually going on, and therefore they are somewhat lessened in comparison. We have that already. We have the idea that planescape scholars scoff at people stuck in one plane, because they don't know the "real story". And we can scoff at them, because the planescape people don't realize they are all characters in our made up stories to entertain ourselves (multiverse theories being what they are, all multiverses are connected with all other multiverses, and an infinite array of potential truths). But we don't need any of it. We don't need to explain how it is all connected and what is all looks like when you zoom all the way out. We can just as easily (as ccs points out) just use the planeshift spell, or a macguffin, and get the result of going from point A to point B. That's the bigger thing for me personally, these settings answer questions I don't need answers to. Other people want them and other people find the neccessary to their enjoyment of the game. Great, go nuts, but I don't need flying ships through explosive magic stuff between galaxy sized crystals that are grains of sand to explain how some guy one time went from Oerth to Earth and shook hands with Stan Lee. The characters aren't going to meet Stan Lee in my game, because it would detract from the story I am telling at the time. And someone telling me that despite my dislike they are already connected anyways.... doesn't matter. I don't care how long they've been connected, how many times they've been connected, or how important it is they are connected. It is never going to come up, my players aren't interested.

  • 03:29 AM - cbwjm mentioned ccs in post How would you balance this modification to spellcasters?
    Like ccs, I'd just change it, run with it, and then sort things out later once I've done some playtesting. As an aside, this rule could lead to the party wanting more short rests, especially as they won't be fully recharged after a long rest but then almost every other class will be recharging on a short rest so it might work out fine.

  • 08:44 PM - DM Dave1 mentioned ccs in post What happens to the "suboptimal?"
    ...ne remembers that PC that always succeeded and always did well because it wasn't challenging. We remember when the PC who has challenges overcame the challenge (either through luck, or creative play) to win the day. Flaws and weaknesses are what accentuates the strengths and heroic actions. Yes to this. Playing the way the hive mind wants ("must max your main stat!", "only use certain race/class combos!", "don't take spells that are red or brown on the interweb lists!", etc) results in a less memorable experience, IMO. Which is kind of missing the point of the fun of playing. Suddenly everything is very samey and mechanical and about "winning" with very little flavor. It's the heroic failures and unlikely victories that make for the grand stories we tell years from now. No group will wax poetic (or want to listen to the hyper-optimizing player who remembers) about the UA Revised Ranger Wood Elf who single-handedly wiped out the low level humanoids in that one combat. I'll take @ccs's Halfling Barbarian or @Ath-kethin's grappling VHuman Warlock or @Warpiglet's Hobgoblin Celestial Warlock in a party any day.

    Ah well done @ccs ! I was just thinking to myself "gee I hope not finding this little plastic toy does not become an itch in my brain that leads me to spend way too long googling it". Then I saw your post, you saved me! <edit> It is a weird world we live in, that people presumably on the other side of the planet from each other still remember the same little plastic crappy toy from their childhoods. Weirder still is the fact that the internet has pictures of that and we can search for it and find it. Even stranger is that a bunch of grown adults are spending time searching for and reminiscing over something so obscure :)

    OK gang let's go with Second Darkness, I'm liking the read so far and the potential for some fun RPing. Finn will defiantly be a member of the Order of Cyphers so that fits nicely. Group so far: hero4hire - Jerrod human alchemist Yavanthol - Finn human magus johnathonhawke - ?? human fighter Skarsgard - ?? human ?? Hoping for one more? ccs maybe? All I need from the players is their background/concept (please list fave weapons and tactics), and if you all can get a copy of Second Darkness Player's Guide and specifically pick a campaign trait for your character. I will be giving everyone a list of the basics you will have to start the game, DB, OB, equipment, spells, and special abilities. Won't be much think of this as if we were trying this in RL you would only have an index card size list of numbers and things your character can do. That info I'll have everyone copy past into the RG before we get started.

  • 10:08 PM - DMMike mentioned ccs in post Fifth Edition.....Why?
    ...r they turned the Forgotten Realms into. Then I bought the 5th Edition players handbook, It seemed to actually streamline the 4th Edition and make it less a tabletop MMO while bringing back the simplicity of the old school blue and red boxes. However what drove me to ignore the rule set was that fundamental lack of variability that 3rd Edition actually offered. It seems like I'm pretty much stuck in the class I began the game in and I can either choose a mediocre stat bonus where I used to be able to alter the standard progression path by taking a feat, and the stat bonus would come later which demonstrated a focus in a differing area of my character's priority. So, why should I play 5th Edition? It eliminated the wonderful options a player could take his character and even it's weak multiclassing can't portray the most famous characters of our favorite DnD novel characters. I mean, stat out Elminster the way he should be in 5th Ed, or even Mirt the Merciless. To elaborate on ccs's response: buying 5th edition keeps the D&D team in business, and putting out more official D&D content. #notWotC But with all the complaints, maybe the thread header should be: Savage Worlds...Why? Hackmaster...Why? GURPS...Why? Fantasy AGE...Why? (Choose Any Free D&D Clone)...Why...

    ...d expecting to stay there for five to eight hours. People like that aren't looking for an amazing *retail* experience, they're looking for an amazing *play* experience--and charging for that is not, in my opinion, unethical. Dannyalcatraz and shidaku: There are in fact stores that make money entirely from hosting games. There are a few models for it, including the cafe model. I expect they will grow. My model right now is not profitable under normal circumstances, but that's because I'm only open two days a week for other reasons. The expanded model for when that's possible involves leveraging Meetup groups on non-RPG days, for boardgame nights; hosting game design & other merit badge projects for scouts; catering to teens and children who want to learn D&D via charging for lessons (yes there is a market, and it's one where parents know how much it costs to host a kid for hours), and a bunch more things. Mirtek: Exactly correct. My FLGS made its money on CCGs and minis. ccs: 1) I stay in business because I have another revenue stream from something else. 2) I give DMs free sessions, one for each session they run; I also give out free sessions for other volunteer services and work. 3) I could lower my stock--but then I would lose all those initial sales to Amazon. Which, ultimately, it's just better to tell people to buy on Amazon. 4) (and this also applies to a later comment by Dannyalcatraz): My point is that (a) the industry should definitely change to a charging-for-games model post haste. There should be no "free" playspace outside of a library. Mandatory purchases, cafe services, and other things can also suffice. I simply don't understand why there is such pushback: you don't balk at paying for bowling, miniature golf, billiards, target shooting, batting cages, and the like; and what you're paying for are the tools to do the thing with and the space. Why are FLGS so incredibly different? There's not much money in the people who only play ...

    ccs I am planning on converting modules (or at least chunks of). We're in the midst of a campaign, but I'm beginning to plan the next one and I want to take a crack at a sandbox style campaign. Everything we've done so far has felt very much like its been on rails - however, they were new players and I had not played or DM'd in a couple decades (at least). Time to take the rails away and see how they do! They're interested in the concept too. So, I've chosen a start location. Now I'm mining my old AD&D modules and gotten my hands on some old Dragon & Dungeon magazines so I can seed the local area and not so local area with potential adventures and hooks. They'll get to choose which ones to go after with the understanding that the things that they pass on are not frozen in time waiting for their return. I've got some time before I have to worry a whole lot about converting, but I will have to get on it. Adventure Lookup had me looking at some 3e & 4e stuff which had me wondering ...

    Well, the only way you're getting decapitated or otherwise similarly maimed (losing arms etc) is: 1) Specific magic weapons - Swords of Sharpness, Vorpral Blades, etc 2) A monster/trap/effect has a specific rule for that happening. 3) Such maiming is, or is pretty much, the only logical outcome of some action a player has their character take. 4) You get killed by massive damage. 5) You get killed by a crit. In #s 4 & 5 the decapitation/maiming is the description of your death, not what caused it rules-wise. Though yes, story-wise, death occurred because of the decapitation. And it might be important later on that you were decapitated etc.... You'd think that #2 would be the most common method. But no. In all my years playing these games I've seen ALOT more instances of #3 (mostly maimings). #1 is the least likely way for these things to occur in my games.

    Yes. But don't write them off. I found Enterprise to be pretty enjoyable. Like I've said, I liked both the crew & the actors playing them. That goes along way smoothing over rough bits. It's worst is season 3 where they focus heavily on a time travel war. That wears thin pretty quickly & goes way too long. And it probably doomed the series. Once the audience tunes out & not enough return during season 4 :(.... Voyager - If you watch this one you've got to get through the 1st two seasons before things get any better. Or watch a handful of season 1 & 2 to get the characters & then skip to season 3+. A few were saying skip season 1&2 of TNG, and DS9 picks up season 2. Doing a DS9 binge ATM;) Quarks gambling presumably for the lives of Cisco, Kira, Dax and whatshisname.

It's the wedge winged model Luke's playing with while 3P0's in the oil bath. 104831 I'll just assume there's shots of a "real" one in action somewhere in the Special Edition re-edits... Cool. I never actually knew that. But, by the same token, umm, I'm thinking that that's not really the same as flying one of the most advanced fighters out there. So, we're free to invent interpretations where it's actually R2, who, had never been shown to be able to fly anything previously, piloting Luke's X-wing, but, it's a bridge too far to think that Rey might have learned to shoot a gun at some point in her history of surviving? Yeah, now I remember why I these conversations are just so baffling. Legends? What's that? Don't exist. Not canon. Don't care. All that stuff you learned from the RPG or from some novel? Not true.

Forgot about that. Luke's a pilot though. It's like Lucas thought about plot and world building. T-16s have a laser cannons, a pneumatic gun and Luke used to bullseye womp rats in em. So yes he can fly and use weapons. In SWSE RPG he had 2 feats, skill focus piloting, force sensitive hit level 3 being trained and spent that feat on skill traing use the force and picked up lightsaber use via mcing into Jedi. At the end of ANH he uses the force blows a force point or maybe a destiny point for an auto crit on the deathstar reactor that casing probably had less than 200 hit points. Hmmmn Rey could be KoToR style an have altered memories that would make her character make sense if she is similar to Revan.
  • 07:53 AM - Zardnaar quoted ccs in post Star Wars What I Would Have Done
    I think you missed the point. I mean, who do you think was really flying & fighting that X-Wing most of the time? Some whiney moisture farmer on his first trip off planet with supposed magic powers? Or was it that astromech droid in the backseat - who's god knows how long over due for a memory wipe, is chock full of XP as a result, & earned that XP helping said whiney moisture farmers' father AND his fathers mentor become legends? One of these two knows considerably more about flying & fighting an X-Wing than the other.... RPG stats arto is a good pilot. He can't break his programing to fire weapons but Luke can. Artoo can definitely co pilot as well which is a bonus or advantage. X-Wings RPG stats are also good a level 1 pilot could fly it well. Luke was level 4 or so in ANH. RPG wise Luke was level 2 leveled up gaining a Jedi level with Obi Wan and leveled up again after the Death Star. I had lvl 1 PCs in TIE fighters. They're still better than the average imp...

    It stays in the room & gets used to collect the stuff I buy in the dealers room. Keeps things nice & orderly both in the room + on the drive home. Makes it real easy to carry the stuff into the house as well. Go through Fantasy Flight? Drop the X-wing boosters in the basket when I swing back to the room before dinner. Buy books at Paizo? Drop 'em in the basket before dinner. Go minis shopping? Board game shopping? T-shirts? Into the basket before dinner.... Takes up the same space in the trunk of the car as all that stuff loose, just makes it easy to move all at once. Makes sense, if you're driving. But even then, I would think something like a collapsible cargo crate with roller-back wheels and handle would be more convenient (e.g. https://www.amazon.com/Office-Depot-Mobile-Folding-16in-H/dp/B00DB8O26Q/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_201_bs_lp_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=E8PVZY1RP183SR0G3SPV)

    The original series. At least some of it, if not all of it. You should appreciate what all the rest of it builds upon. Recommended episodes are (in order): The Cage Mudds Women The Menagerie Arena Space Seed* Mirror Mirror* I, Mudd The Trouble with Tribbles Assignment: Earth - for some of the movies & later series you need to appreciate that time travel is a thing & that there's factions trying to alter the past in Trek. So you might as well watch one of the originals that sets the premise. The Tholian Web All of these save the Tribbles link to stuff I recommend below. Some as concepts, some as plot points, some as cool cameos/easter eggs. The two with * are really important. Movies: The Wrath of Khan - after you've watched the original series/or at least the episode titled Space Seed Search for Spock (not the best Trek movie, but follows Wrath & sets up Voyage) Voyage Home. - The one with the whales. Even non-Trek fans like this one. Maybe First Contac...

    Definitely get yourself a copy of Ars Magica. You're pretty much describing it's magic system. I played 3rd/4th edition myself, but I'm sure there's a more recent edition. Ars is in 5th, and you made a great recommendation!

  • 11:45 PM - Quartz quoted ccs in post Theorycrafting Versatile
    Oh, okay. So it's just about changing the specific numbers involved? I thought you were looking for weird interactions with Reckless Attack, or GWM, or some ability that was restricted to use with two-handed weapons. No such luck! :D If it's just a numbers thing, then I would go out of my way to avoid using a versatile weapon in one hand, because (1d10-2) is significantly more prone to low rolls than 1d8 is. Well yes, but the theorycraft is that the versatile weapon is ordinarily two-handed and the situation may arise that the PC does not have both hands available - e.g. holding on to something, maybe a cliff face, maybe a comrade, maybe a rope - so is still able to use something pointy against attackers. Your idea is bad. Here's why: For no benefit you punish the iconic sword & board type characters AND the people who play them. I disagree. The Roman Legionary still gets sword & shield. The Greek hoplite and Zulu warrior still get spear and shield. And so on. ...

  • 10:22 AM - Morrus quoted ccs in post Star Trek Discovery not getting any better I fear.
    Well, since I really liked season 1, I guess season 2 not getting much better isn't the worst thing in the world. :) I liked s1, and s2 is even better. There arenít many shows I eagerly await each week, but this is one.
  • 08:16 AM - Olaf the Stout quoted ccs in post How Many RPG Books Do You Own?
    Hm. That sounds high. Maybe if all the miniature war-gaming books/editions of were included in that # - but no, they take up their own dedicated bookshelf. Anyways, the RPG stuff takes up about 15.5 shelves (I've still got enough space to last until 6e I figure :)) split between 4 bookshelves. Might have to measure my shelves.... It'll still be a large #. All I can tell you is my 4ft wide shelf fits 65 hardcover 3.xE or 5E D&D books. Itís surprising as it doesnít look like that many books until you actually count them.

    I don't know. Alot. How many RPG books (average size = 5e PHB) fit normally in 64' of bookshelf? That's almost how much I've got RPG wise. So I've got a 4ft wide bookshelf that fits about 65 hardcover books roughly PHB size. So 64ft is 16 times that amount. So that would be 1,040 books!

  • 12:47 PM - Imaculata quoted ccs in post What are the biggest RPG crimes?
    I'd think the crime here has been committed by the DM. Clearly the players are indicating that they aren't interested in the plot you've cooked up. I don't think that's entirely fair. This sort of issue can also come up when running a published adventure. If you and your players all agree to sit down and play a published adventure, then you expect your players to not run away from it. If you decide to play a campaign revolving around killing a dragon, the players shouldn't be running off in the opposite direction. Killing Black Leaf???? Marcie's spirit was weak though. And technically, she did fail to find the poison trap... Plus, she didn't even dress up in evil cult robes, like a normal D&D player does. Put some effort in! (It's kind of bad that I actually get this reference.)
