    And here's the revision. In this the Grimoire is still narratively the same; ancient wizard bound into his spellbook, able to talk but not act and so on. The non-spell knowledge in the book is now treated as 'super skills' and 'super advantages' that are lost when the book is unavailable, but the Grimoire isn't a sidekick any longer, because it can't take actions or DO anything beyond share...

    I suppose it depends on the viewer really. A table that lets you declare hits, for example, isn’t cheating by your definition since the table agrees. But they certainly aren’t playing by the rules either. Are they cheating or not? From their perspective probably not. But from any outside observer? I’d say yes they are.

    I went with the 130 dollars that you insisted on quoting. For the sake of argument. It is about 300 dollars to run a 5e full featured game. But, fair enough, you do get a lot of bang for your buck for that second 150 bucks. I'll agree with that. But, you do kinda gloss over the steps needed to load an image. 1.

Go back into fg find the file through the images tab, hope that you know the file name because good luck finding it otherwise....

On top of that, it's likely that one of their portents will allow the Diviner to inflict a failed save on one of their spells, particularly if it's a save-or-suck spell.

    The 8 points from Sidekick, combined with the 6 or so points from adding Easily Removed, will simply correct the 14 point overage I found. No mechanical changes to the character arising from that change. I'll use some exp to add a little 'easily removed' bonus to Knowledge Arcane to represent using the Grimoire for magic research.

    Thorn goes in after Viridian and looks around the room a bit, giving the shackles a kick. Finally she shrugs. "Good enough. Lets get back."

    Shayuri folds her arms, scowling, then quickly unfolds them again to keep her hands ready to cast. "I have no idea what the right path is here," she admits to the others. "I hope he's not making a colossal mistake."

    Icosa observes the preparations, but realizes that even if anything hostile takes Tink's bait, he'll have trouble targeting them from this far away. He begins climbing carefully down, intending to back Tink up should an attack begin.

    There is a significant range between "clerics never act like anything other than fighters with a spell list" and "clerics must have daily/hourly rituals which must be detailed out." I would just like to see cleric (and paladin and druid) players actually acknowledge that they have a patron diety once in a while and do anything at the table to make that part of the game.

    It’s not cheating if it’s fun? Fun for who? And how do we measure that? Since fudging is generally secret, the players can’t judge. Note, kit bashing is another kettle of fish. That’s above board and tacitly agreed upon by all participants. If fudging isn’t cheating then why do dms keep it secret?

    Whereas I think that’s just sophistry and silly buggers semantics. Try this. Change a die roll in any dice game other than an rpg and see what happens.

    I've never understood this approach to clerics. Ok, you're an adventurer. Cool. That means you're probably wandering around rather than hanging out in a specific temple. Great. But, at the end of the day, you should be a CLERIC. As in a mortal representation of whatever diety (or philosophy depending) that you worship. Which means you should have a boat load of elements that tie you to the...

    Okay, wow, that's interesting. Let me try to unpack that a little to make sure I'm clear. :) The laser gun does base damage of 3d6+3, plus another 1 every 3 full levels Icosa has...so right now that's a total of 3d6+4 damage. (Assuming Icosa is now level 5; see the last question below) I'm not sure what the 'allowing for +5 aim' means. Does that mean it doesn't use Icosa's Proficiency bonus...

    This I could really get behind. Ways to ground a cleric into the setting so that she isn't just a wizard with healing spells. Being a cleric (or a druid) should have huge impacts on how that class is played. Yes, it's more limiting, but, at the same time, I'd rather that cleric players start with "I'M A CLERIC" rather than just another caster.

    Let's say I'm a 6th level wizard. My moon's in High Sanction. I now count as a 7th level wizard for the purposes of spell-casting. I don't get to learn any new 4th level spells, but I do get the extra spell slots associated with a higher level spellcaster, and I can cast my 1st, 2nd, and 3rd level spells at 4th level if I am able to do so (since I have a 4th level slot). Let's say I'm a 7th...

    The "hill" in question is an iceberg, floating in the ocean. Ice is, typically, pretty slippery. So, no, it's not random DC's. The east side of the iceberg is pretty sheer and slopes down to the west, which is more passable. Think of a right angled triangle floating in the water. A DC 15 to climb a nearly vertical ice wall seems about right. A DC 10 to walk up a sharp slope (it's about 20...

    I'd say there isn't much of a difference, when you remove monsters/NPC's from the equation to be honest. But, by the same token, simply making traps bigger/stronger/faster isn't really a change either. If a chest has a poison needle trap at 1st level and a magical aura lightning trap at 15th, well, it's still just a trapped chest. Only difference is, the magical trapped chest becomes the...

    Not really the point though. Sure, magic can be evocative. But, in a S&S game, magic should never be the go-to solution of problems. It should be the absolutely last resort. Certainly not the first option. In vanilla D&D? Go for it. But, in order to get the kind of feel in the game that I wanted, I needed to get rid of a lot of magic out of the system. If you're tired of 25 foot...

    No, not particularly. I tended to use more "beast" type monsters and a LOT of weird stuff like gibbering mouthers and whatnot, but, no, I didn't really need to change anything. Why would I? And, note, NPC's could and did have at-will magic. Blasting away at the party is perfectly fine. :D Not sure why I would need to remove at-will effects from the baddies.

    Yeah, I could get behind that. And, really, the barbarian didn't faze me too much, despite getting some built in rituals. Makes the whole "nature priest" thing work pretty well. Honestly, it just never came up. And, note, while PC's couldn't be full casters, NPC's certainly could. So, you could go find a wizard to do something for you (hopefully) and the setting does have clerics.

  • 01:21 AM - Sunseeker quoted MurderHobo1 in post Boy, that escalated quickly...
    Then kill the impatient player. "Sorry, you just stepped on a trap that doesn't activate until the second person steps on it. You fall down a very long pit into deep water. Are you wearing plate? Yeah, you sink. Sorry you're out of range of Player C's levitate spell. You're beginning to drown. Yeah, it'll take 5 mins to take off your armor. You're dead. Spend the rest of the game session rerolling a new toon and we'll figure out when we can get you back into the game. Maybe it'll be at the end of this one or maybe it'll be a couple of sessions." There's ways of handling it. That's a dickish one. There's less dickish one's like "Dude. Chill out. He's stealthing. It's his job. Let him do it." If the guy is still a douche, delay his next level one or two sessions after everyone else and ask, "Get it yet?" If a player can wait 5 minutes for his turn in combat, he can wait 2 minutes for someone to stealth. Anything else is rationalization or justification. IMO. I did this la...
