  • 05:53 PM - FrogReaver mentioned Gladius Legis in post [GUIDE] My Word Is My Sword: The Paladin Guide
    Yes, and it's also equal to the stance of anyone, even a bum off of a street. That's not true. He's the lead rules designer and the person that makes official rulings on sage advice. Like it or not, his tweets are infinitely closer to official than a bum of the streets. Regardless, there's a better thread about the Sage Advice specifically to have this discussion on than this paladin guide. I think Gladius Legis would appreciate us moving this argument there.

  • 11:25 PM - pukunui mentioned Gladius Legis in post Adaptive Explorer: An alternative to Natural Explorer for 1st-level Rangers
    Gladius Legis: This is a cool idea. Thanks for sharing. It's a new year so new campaign for one of my groups, and I've decided to be brave and actually house rule the ranger a little bit. I've replaced the default Favored Enemy feature with the Favored Enemy / Greater Favored Enemy feature from the UA revised ranger. I've also made it so Natural Explorer doesn't require the picking of favored terrains. Its benefits apply to all terrain types. However, because I'm also wanting to implement AiME's Journey rules, I'm going to enforce the idea that a ranger can only be doing one activity at a time (foraging *or* navigating *or* tracking). If the ranger isn't actively navigating, the group can still get lost. If the ranger isn't actively foraging, they don't find extra food. And so on. Your post has made me realize that I inadvertently nixed the disguised Expertise part of Natural Explorer. I might just do what you've done and make it so they get Expertise in one ranger class skill of their choi...

  • 02:59 AM - Ashrym mentioned Gladius Legis in post Allowing some Concentration Stacking - With big costs
    Concentration as a caster limitation is one of the best changes from 3e, IMO. Changing it as suggested does nothing but change the optimization and buffs casting. Gladius Legis had an interestind suggestion but I think that takes one of the benefits of Bestow Curse away. I would go with concentration spells cast using 3 slots higher than required removes concentration and is an additional requirement beyond other scaling. Personally, I would be more inclined to add a feat... Centered Caster: The spell caster can make a DC 10 concentration check to cast and maintain one additional concentration spell without breaking concentration on an existing spell. The caster must an additional concentration check at the end of each of his or her turns to maintain the second spell. The caster makes any other concentration checks at disadvantage on the second spell. That gives an added bonus to sorcerers because of save proficiencies. A feat for a controlled concentration buff seems far more reasonable as a trade-off.

  • 10:41 PM - Blue mentioned Gladius Legis in post Trying to make a good vengeance paladin, I need some help.
    The estimable Gladius Legis said much of what I was going to. Vengance works fantastically with Great Weapon Mastery, so go two handed weapon and enjoy lots of damage. Dump Dex - an 8 won't hurt your AC, and you want to go after foes so they have a chance to move closer so you can close and engage on round one. Focus on STR & CON (for both Concentration and survivability). Early on don't miss spells like Shield of Faith and Protection from Evil and Good to help keep you up because you will make yourself a target. On the other hand, if you go variant human and pick up GWM at 1st, Bless to land it more is the way to go. (This is in addition to GL's suggestion about Haste at later levels.) Depending on what level you expect the game to end at makes a big difference for multiclassing. If it's less than the teens, I wouldn't do it. And you don't need to do it, it's just a different focus. If you do multiclass I can't complain about GL's suggestion of Fighter 1st to get CON saves, but it delays so many good p...

  • 09:19 PM - Bishop_ mentioned Gladius Legis in post [GUIDE] My Word Is My Sword: The Paladin Guide
    First of all, thank you for your guides, Gladius Legis. I really appreciate them. So, I'm planning a Sorcadin (Paladin (Conquest) 7/Sorcerer (Divine Soul) 13). Mostly, he'll be a tank and support for the party. Do you (and others, of course) think that Martial Adept for Menacing Attack is worth a feat/ASI for this build? And if it's possible, could you provide example builds for the new material that came out in XGtE, please?

  • 10:46 PM - Gadget mentioned Gladius Legis in post What's the worst spell?
    I would second @Gladius Legis on the list provided with the slight disagreement that Blade Ward--though niche-- has its uses. In short there are two ways to measure a spell's effectiveness: how well it matches the fiction and lives up to the expectations in the description, and how well the mechanical implementation works along with the system mastery required to effectively use it. For example, few players, even newbies, would expect Illusory Script to be an dungeon pawning, knock-down-orcus type of spell. Mechanically, the spell largely delivers what it says on the tin, and is a somewhat niche utility spell that may come up in certain types of campaigns, but not one an erstwhile dungeon delver is likely to take to keep them and their companions alive while adventuring. As such, I don't really have a problem with it (save for maybe having the duration be longer for ancient treasure maps or some such story driven thing). Spells like Mordenkainen's Sword, on the other hand, deliver quite a bit different exp...

  • 06:28 PM - Hawk Diesel mentioned Gladius Legis in post June Unearthed Arcana: Druid Shepherd, Fighter Cavalier, and Paladin of Conquest
    I forgot to comment on the paladin! I agree with Gladius Legis about the Conquering Strike vs Conquering Presence. I don't think it makes a huge difference to be able to activate it on a successful strike. Scornful rebuke is cool, but I think it should probably require using your reaction, and should be minimum 1 rather than 0. But then again, given an ability of such a high level, maybe if it requires your reaction it should be a bit higher damage.

  • 08:02 AM - Xeviat mentioned Gladius Legis in post The 'New' Ranger
    To play devil's advocate about the game assuming the ability to get through damage resistance, I'd point you to page 277 of the DMG. There, in the CR calculator, there's a part where it tells you to effecitvely multiply a creature's HP for resistances ("especially bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage from nonmagical weapons", it says). This multiplier goes down as levels increase: 1-4 - x2 5-10 - x1.5 11-16 - x1.25 17+ - x1 It's almost as if they expect groups to have more and more ways of bypassing resistances as levels increase (just like they think Flight isn't a defensive advantage past level 10, when players have better ranged attacks and better access to their own flight). I'm with Gladius Legis mostly; since the pet cannot wield weapons, and there are no baseline "magic fang amulets" that I'm aware of, I'd give them the ability to ignore DR/magic. But, like TheCosmicKid, I'd add a "magic fang" spell, because like the "magic weapon" spell, +X to hit would be a worthwhile buff on a pet if you aren't using your concentration for something else. Maybe. But, a "magic fang amulet" that allowed the wearer to bypass magic resistance would be a simple compromise too. I give out "endless quivers" to make the game simpler too.

  • 05:28 AM - Maxperson quoted Gladius Legis in post GAME OF THRONES SEASON 8--Final Run-- Part 6---THE END
    Worst finale of any show ever made. Period. Yes, worse than Dexter, Lost, Seinfeld, HIMYM, or whatever counterexample you want to toss out there. The parts that weren't just entirely stupid were still completely unsatisfying. Nah. It was better than Dexter, How I Met Your Mother, and Lost. Not sure about Seinfeld. Not good, but better than those.

    Well, Dumb & Dumber brought that on themselves. HBO wanted Season 8 to have more episodes, but Dumb & Dumber refused. This is a common claim I see, but who is better qualified how much story they have to tell than the ones that write the story? If they said they had something for 6 episodes, why would you assume that if they had been given more they would have written anything better, and not just made it more boring?

  • 09:54 PM - lowkey13 quoted Gladius Legis in post GAME OF THRONES SEASON 8--Final Run-- Part 5
    With all these flaws you mentioned (and I agree with), how can you possibly still consider this show "good"? These are fatal flaws in any show, book, movie or what have you, failures of Storytelling 101. Well, to recap- You said that this is the worst episode of television, ever. I disagree. This isn't the worst episode of any series of TV, ever. That's pretty basic- I mean, I'd expect it to win some awards for costume design, special effects etc. if nothing else. There are WHOLE SERIES of television that I can't even stand to watch. It's not the worst episode of this season (IMO). That was last week' episode. 2 > 1 > 5 > 3 > 4.* It's not the worst episode of the series; I'd have to think about it, but maybe something Dorne-ish? The Jamie and Bronn go to Dorne episode might be worse. But, in the end, it was fine. As a stand alone episode, it's quite good! My issue isn't the episode, it's that it lacked the proper framework to get there. I did, however, like some particularly Martin-esque touc...

    This episode is below 50% on Rotten Tomatoes at the moment. I'm far from the only one who noticed this episode is awful. Some friendly advice: citing RT percentages is good way to sabotage any critical argument you're trying to make. I believe the name for the fallacy is "argumentum ad populum sui-selectum et neckbarbatum" Apparently, however, this is the thread where all the Dumb & Dumber apologists decided to crawl out of the woodwork and attack me for speaking the cold hard truth. [emoji849] Truth? What is truth? Sorry, feeling a bit Pilate-y today. On the strength of the direction & cinematography alone "The Bells" deserves an Emmy. As the penultimate episode of Got... well, I'm not sure exactly how I feel about it today. While I was watching it my responses were: gripping, beautiful, awful, kinda... appropriate. It's amazing how the show can make its audience forget it's at the heart a subversion of epic fantasy. Again and again. And then provoke such a response when it flies its tru...

Apparently, however, this is the thread where all the Dumb & Dumber apologists decided to crawl out of the woodwork and attack me for speaking the cold hard truth. [emoji849] Hey- if you think this is the worst episode of TELEVISION ever (let alone that this is an OBJECTIVELY true statement), then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you. Because you might not have liked it, but it's not even the worst episode of GoT, let alone the worst episode of television, ever. But then again, other people's opinions are like crying babies on an airplane- they are really annoying. I mean, why didn't you just come in and say, "I'm here to chew bubblegum and throw a ridiculous nerd tantrum, and I'm all out of bubblegum."

    Seen all of those. Last night's Game of Thrones was still worse. Except maybe Dexter, but it's at that level of stupid. And nothing any of you say will change that. Well, given that you just stated that anyone that disagrees with you is "objectively" wrong, I think you're right - nothing anyone says will change your mind. ;) Of course, anyone else will probably look at your assertions, quietly shake their heads, and turn away ... perhaps while remarking on the death of irony, or somesuch. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I've watched far more than you, I bet. I can't think of another episode of anything that had so much stupid, illogical stuff going on, I'll say that much. 1. Season finale of Dexter. (I'm a lumberjack!) 2. Season 8 of Dexter. 3. Actually, anything after season 4. 4. True Blood, final season. 5. Heroes; season finale (S1) and everything after. 6. Roseanne- winning the lottery, because that's what made the show good, you know, money. 7. X-Files- all those great episodes after Duchovny left. 8. Scrubs- did you know that they recast the whole thing for a season? Yeah, bet you didn't. 9. Earth: Final Conflict- S1 finale, everything after.* 10. How do you spell the Office without Michael Scott? S. U. C. K. 11. Weeds- somewhere around S4 or 5 maybe? It lasted eight (8!) increasingly bad seasons. 12. How I Met Your Mother- Never watched it, but I'm told I never should. Something about the last episode? ;) 13. Happy Days- have you ever heard of the phrase "Jumping the Shark?" Thought so. 14....

Oooo, is this where we get to list off how much media we've consumed in an effort to see which of us is the superior nerd? Hard pass. If you think it was that bad, for you, then fine by me. I will argue that objectively, there are worse.

    Divide and conquer? If either Jon or Dany dies, the other becomes stronger as most of the disputes between their sides evaporate. I doubt Cersei knows who Jon really is at this point. She knows he is the nominal leader of the North. And she should know from rumours and spies that there are divided loyalties among their people as to who's really in charge? We know that they have spies in the north as Qyburn knew really fast about the army of the dead heading towards Winterfell.

    And Star Wars, not interested in The Rise of Likely Retcon, a.k.a. The Rise of Corporate Cowardice in the least bit. If they retcon it (*sigh*) I don't think corporate cowardice will have anything to do with it. I think it'll be because Abrams, as a director, is not much of a visionary, creative storyteller, and wants to lean hard on old standard tropes, and doesn't like what Rian Johnson did.

  • 03:52 AM - Treantmonklvl20 quoted Gladius Legis in post Beast Master Ranger: Redeemed?
    The beast tends to die in battles against enemies with strong AoEs and reach longer than 5 feet, both of which become far more prevalent starting around 5th level. At that point, positioning yourself between beast with 10-foot reach and enemy to threaten OAs if the enemy goes after your beast ceases to be an effective tactic in many fights. I agree that the tactics need to change against creatures with a higher reach, but for the reasons I bring up in the video, I don't think the Beast is a likely target for enemies. Of course, if it is, you should get it out of harm's way if possible and just strike twice with your Ranger instead. Have the beast deliver the help action to an archer or something with your bonus action. Any damage that beast took is damage the party did not take.
