    This part is true, though a Warlock/any other caster multiclass will always have less spell slots to play with than any other two caster combo that does not include Warlock. You have to track your spell slots separately even though you can use them for spells or abilities from either class.

    There is still the Neverwinter MMO and it gets new content for each hardcover adventure that has been released, even Curse of Strahd. So there will not be another MMO that would only compete with that.

    Oh what, his little show is now magically a print book of official rules? Maybe something like this will show up in 5 or 10 years, after Pathfinder is on it's 3rd edition. Maybe.

    My problem with how some people want the Ranger to look reminds me too much of how the Pathfinder Ranger works. And I feel like, back when 5E was being written, Mike and Co wanted to avoid copying what Pathfinder did as much as possible, so I do not think we will ever get a Ranger with any kind of pet other than we have now. It will not level with the character. It will not gain new abilities as...

    But is that score because there is not much actual adventure in the book or because it is a bad adventure? It is basically the same shortish adventure that can be played in each of the four seasons and with a choice from four different BBEGs at the end. And from what I hear, you do not actually fight any of the BBEGs because your group is level 5 at the most when you get to the end. Just that...

Have there been any threads talking about how to use the information in it to make our own cities work better? Also, because so little of Dragon Heist is player-friendly material, maybe there is also a lot less talk about it in general? Same thing for Mad Mage. It is also not the normal part adventure/part...

    Just going by your original question, and not any of the comments so far in the thread, a house rule I may use is based on how far below 0 the character goes. Basically, if a single application of a particular healing item/spell/magic effect/etc will bring the character back above 0, then they can function again on their next turn. But if multiple uses are needed to get back above 0, then the...

    When I went to their website to make sure I was spelling their name correctly and to make sure I remembered the right price, I also noticed that any mention at all of the lower level versions of the set had completely disappeared from the site. I think there were originally three or four lesser versions of this set mentioned on the site, though with no details or prices.

    This is a good one. Or just wait til the character does something that should be an auto-success and instead it fails. That will get the player's attention really quick too. Make that a part of the curse. After having possession of the item for a certain number of days: once per day, one skill auto-success fails instead.

    What I define as support is what is released after the initial setting book/adventure. Your initial book could contain everything on your voting list, but if nothing more is published after that first book, there is no support. So additional information/releases on everything on that list, other than the starting region and starting adventure, would be what I consider support. I am sure if we...

    Every month or two, Mike Mearls posts some sort of update of what he is doing with his personal conversion of Nentir Vale to 5E and has stated before that it is for one of his personal games and not going to be published. Obviously that could eventually change, but only Mike knows if or when that might happen.

    Why? Just because people only played 3E, 4E, and Pathfinder? Or because of Drizz't? Most of the Rangers I have played were in 1E and 2E, so no pets. If I wanted a pet back in those days, I would have had a Ranger/Wizard multi-class with a familiar. And the reason I think it should be a Barbarian subclass is because of the Beastmaster movies.

    1 page per level of the spell, nor just 1 page per spell, so a level 1 spell uses 1 page and a level 9 spell uses 9 pages. Depending on how quickly a DM allows a PC Mage to acquire new spells, a 20th level mage could have several full spell books, definitely more than one each for just the higher level spells.

    If the Lords of Waterdeep could keep there identities secret for as long as they did with all the high-level magic available in the Realms, then it is certainly doable. Now, whether what was used by them in previous editions of the game still works the same in 5E, I do not know.

  • 10:46 AM - Lanefan mentioned Enevhar Aldarion in post A Flesh to Stone Creature is Not an Object?
    Enevhar Aldarion has this exactly right, as far as I'm concerned. Turned to stone means turned to stone: Rock to Mud will kill you outright, something that can snap bits of you off leaves you without those bits even if you make it back to flesh, and I don't even want to think about what Stone Shape could do to you. :) But, if there's a bright side it's this: stone is pretty much immune to fire*, cold, sonic attacks, gas of any kind, drowning, mental attacks of any kind, and poison; never mind you can exist without air, food or drink for a period of time probably measured in eras. Acid and sledgehammers are probably the only things you'll ever really have to worry about, though lightning is gonna hurt a bit if it hits you. * - though if someone drops you into lava you're likely going to melt before long...

  • 09:00 AM - pukunui mentioned Enevhar Aldarion in post FR "official" timeline? roll of years?
    Enevhar Aldarion and userZynx_name: Yeah, but that's not the question that the OP is asking. He's not asking what the current year in the FR timeline is. He's asking where the names of the years (eg. "Year of the Scarlet Witch") come from. They're not mentioned in the SCAG. The Roll of Years in the 3e FRCS only goes up to 1380, while the one in the 4e FRPG only goes up to 1482. And 5e's SCAG doesn't have a Roll of Years in it. As I've mentioned above, the WotC FR calendar tool includes names for all the years between -700 DR and 1600 DR, but it doesn't say where the names came from. Luckily, the candlekeep thread linked to above appears to have an answer: Ed created the roll of years, but too many years ago, Steven Schend pulled Eric Boyd and a group of other Realms fans together to create names for the next 100 years or so. We were much more prolific than Steven anticipated and thus the current roll.... As an aside, 1492 is the "Year of Three Ships Sailing". Do you suppose those thr...

    This part is true, though a Warlock/any other caster multiclass will always have less spell slots to play with than any other two caster combo that does not include Warlock. You have to track your spell slots separately even though you can use them for spells or abilities from either class. You only must track them separately because some recharge on a short rest and some on a long rest.

    I long for the day when CRPG means Console RPG and not Computer RPG, especially if more consoles go the hybrid portable route that the Nintendo Switch does. This. If the game is good enough, I will go out and buy a new console if I don't own the supported one, but I'm just done with playing games on a laptop. Even though I can connect the lap top to my TV ... I just don't want to bother. When it comes to gaming, I just want to sit back on my couch and just play. I am here to register myself as the designated voice of dissension to this sentiment. Mostly because I am getting seriously jaded by the Console-game industry at the moment. And Console Exclusive titles are one of the major reasons for that. Another major reason being you have to download the game and it's patches after you buy the disk, which negates the reason to even have a console in the first place. Why am I buying a closed garden box if I have to download and set the game up anyway? The days of just plugging a cartridge into your...

    Oh what, his little show is now magically a print book of official rules? Maybe something like this will show up in 5 or 10 years, after Pathfinder is on it's 3rd edition. Maybe. Well, he pretty much has explicitly stated he's working on alternate class features that he wants to release in some official fashion (though the venue is up in the air). Might be a year but probably not 5. And it might be that playtesting and development will mean the final version looks nothing like his first pass at it (which this is). It also might be they decide after further testing to abandon the whole idea of alternate class features entirely. But he is working on something with potential for release. It's not just a thought experiment. AD Edit to add: The Order Domain Cleric came out of Happy Fun Hour and was published in the Ravnica, just as a case in point

    And I am sort of laughing at the whole "4 whole books in a couple of months" thing, seeing as how many people have posted here over the past four years that 3 or 4 books a year is nowhere near enough releases and they wanted a book every month or two. I am surprised that none of them have popped in here to say this is great and they want more. I think it is the type of books being released, not that they have released 4 books in 6 months. Most of the people I recall asking for more releases per year are wanting options books, not adventures. Stuff like new classes/subclasses, races/subraces, spells, feats, monsters, etc. The books released this year are 2 adventures, a race/monster book, and a setting book. Of these 4 books, the one with the most talked about was MToF, the option book. Many people have no use or desire for the Ravnica book, and there's the adventures which have a bit of a niche audience, as not everyone likes urban adventures (or the premise behind WDH), nor like mega-dungeons.

I am surprised that none of them have popped in here to say this is great and they want more. WotC actually did me a huge favour. If they had followed the 3e/4e release model of a book a month, I would now have multiple shelves containing thousands of dollars' worth of 5e books that don't see any actual use. As it is, I'm averaging a book a year - I gave up on the storylines after "Storm King's Thunder", and don't have any interest in buying into another new setting. And I'm more likely to reduce my consumption next year than increase it. So, yeah, I'll hold my hand up to being... less right on that one.

But in all my years of playing 1E/2E, no party ever went past the low teens for level, and that was in campaigns that lasted years and were played weekly. We played daily for years at school. Initially just at lunchtimes, but I recall in our last year there were a lot of breaks between lessons when we could play for hours a day in the 6th form centre. Also no minis, small groups or solo, so play was very very fast by modern standards. A 35 minute lunch session might have several fights. XP - used straight XP for gold, went over to 2e monster XP.

    Beadle and Grimm's has one for you for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist. It will only cost you $500. I looked at Beadle and Grimm. I don't want to pay a premium for props. I don't need separate printed DM maps. Just give me 1" = 5' scale battlemaps for all important encounter locations and all the minis (can be cardboard tokens, maybe with painted minis in "premium" sets) I need to run the game. Battlemaps and mini. The players hand-outs can been real nice in some adventures, but most do not warrant the prices of beadle and grim. I only want high-quality handouts for items that the players are very likely or certain to get and which they will need through out the game. A treasure map or an ancient parchments with clues that pertain to the entire span of the campaign. I think, however, VTTs are were most of the product advancement will go. But there needs to be device optimized for gaming that is portable and software that doesn't take a long time to get up and running with.

It's basic in more sense than one.This is true but there was an outline in the last version. It's a simple thing, especially if you've already gone so far as to hyperlink your headings. I have high standards! :p

    Beadle and Grimm's has one for you for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist. It will only cost you $500. Ok wow. Something a little toned down from that.

    Why? Just because people only played 3E, 4E, and Pathfinder? Or because of Drizz't? Most of the Rangers I have played were in 1E and 2E, so no pets. I'm not familiar with 1e AD&D, but that would not be the case with 2e, where about half of the followers a ranger could attract were common animals. They were also adept with both trained and untamed creatures, and, beginning at 8th level, could cast the priest spell animal friendship to get animal companions. While I'd not oppose a barbarian pet-based subclass, rangers have been using animal companions for almost 30 years now (from what I know). Maybe you don't like them or don't feel they're important at all, but it's been an important part of at least one ranger archetype for quite some time.

If I wanted a pet back in those days, I would have had a Ranger/Wizard multi-class with a familiar. And the reason I think it should be a Barbarian subclass is because of the Beastmaster movies. enh? I played a 1e Ranger like a year ago and had a whole storybook full of pets; Griffons, Giant Owls, I think a couple of bears. Just have to roll well on the followers table. (Granted that's at 9th or something.)

    That's why I switched to a Ranger after I got bored with my Paladin. Granted, I started at level 6 so I got to skip over some of the earlier pain points, but I'm actually quite happy with the Gloom Stalker subclass overall. I'll definitely be following the development of the alternate class features, because Favored Enemy and Natural Explorer definitely don't feel as useful as they could be (we just hit level 9 and I've used each of those abilities exactly once). As an archer I would've liked the Revised Ranger's version of Vanish (level 6 instead of level 14) but it's not the end of the world. Why? Just because people only played 3E, 4E, and Pathfinder?

And the reason I think it should be a Barbarian subclass is because of the Beastmaster movies. Drizzt, WoW, and the last 20 odd years of dnd outweigh the...

    I wish they would stop trying to cram the beastmaster into the Ranger class and just put it where it belongs, in the Barbarian class. I think it should be a Druid subclass but... yeah.
