    I don't watch the show, but I'll be buying the AI book just for the new race and the expanded party roles. The company management rules are something I'll assess when I reach that bridge.

    They can go die in a hole; if the Psion and the psionics subsystem comes out as bloated as the Mystic was, that thing is getting slam-dunked into the trash can. Gith PCs and psionic monsters have been using componentless spells for the past 5 years and those work fine.

    It worked, but it logged me out of everything else, so that sucks. Don't see an option for that. I got to the desktop website by pressing the big button syaing "Deaktop Version", but the desktop website has no way to go back to the mobile website.

    So why should we have to create an entirely new, hyperrelaistic hyperspecific hypernloated system for weapon accuracy, damage, and reloading for one specific wepaon type, rather than adapting it into the already existing 5e weapon system? Why do you care so much about a firearm being hyperrealistic when swords and crossbows aren't? Why are people arguing for increased system bloat?

    I like it. Battle Smith is definitely overtuned, and the other subclasses have a bit of an identity crisis over whether they want to be weapon attackers or cantrip slingers. Other than that I think what we have right now is solid, with no major revamps needed.

    Except that the OP was specifically looking for charismatic heroes, and unless somebody rolled 14-18 for all 6 stats, Charisma is probably not going to be a priority to invest in, so that Battlemaster Fighter doesn't come out as the most charismatic of fellows. They're going to place their highest number in one of Strength or Dexterity so their attacks can land more often and deal more damage,...

    Use Xianxia genre conventions to reinvent Kara-Tur while also updating the timeline for 5e to incorporate the Spellplague and the Second Sundering. Or hell, get a Xianxia author to consult or even write the setting, and maybe a series of tie-in novels. If it comes out looking like 三生三世十里桃花/Three Lives, Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms, you're probably on the right track. A plot idea I...

  • 06:48 AM - ClaytonCross quoted Psyzhran2357 in post Are you satisfied enough with the Artificer to publish it?
    You can't change cantrips on level-up. You cna only change 1st level spells and above. Normally with any other class you would be correct. However below is a direct quote from the latest version of the Artificer: "Cantrips At 1st level, you know two cantrips of your choice from the artificer spell list below. At higher levels, you learn additional artificer cantrips of your choice, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Artificer table. When you gain a level in this class, you can replace one of the artificer cantrips you know with another cantrip from the artificer spell list."
  • 02:33 AM - Twiggly the Gnome quoted Psyzhran2357 in post The Final Announcement from The Descent Live Stream: Eberron Hardcover
    A single nation of Scales stuck in Q'barra with little contact with greater Khorvaire? That's your dealbreaker? Of all things? Some people can be iredeemably petty and pathetic. Why do a disproportionate amount of them have to be on RPG forums, ranting about lawns and yelling at clouds? There's mention of "half-dragon lizardfolk" living in Q'barra in the 3e book. They just called them out as Dragonborn in the later editions. Not a big deal. As to the announcement... Yay Eberron! :cool:

    Reading comprehension 0%, final course grade F, pleaew withdraw from this program, pleaseleave this institution and never come back. Not even getting into the grammatical and typographical errors of someone starting off with "reading comprehension 0%", but let's back up a bit and say this: Mike Mearls, on behalf of Wizards of the Coast, said the PDF would be updated with new material. People paid $20 for the PDF based off that. Wizards of the Coast then releases a $50-60 hardcover on the same material. So either the people who paid $20 for the PDF are not getting this updated material, meaning they were deceived...or they are getting this updated material, which devalues the still-as-yet unreleased book. No matter what happens here, unless Wizards of the Coast comes up with some details as to what is and is not included in the Eberron book and what recompense (if any) they're giving to people who bought the Wayfarer's Guide to Eberron, people are going to speculate. And that speculation is not...

    OMG, we're saying if you want to care if it's realistic then you need to care that ALL of it is realistic, not cherry pick things just cause you don't want it in your game. No, that's just not true. So why should we have to create an entirely new, hyperrelaistic hyperspecific hypernloated system for weapon accuracy, damage, and reloading for one specific wepaon type, rather than adapting it into the already existing 5e weapon system? Why do you care so much about a firearm being hyperrealistic when swords and crossbows aren't? Why are people arguing for increased system bloat? Yes, that just is true. No, it is not true. If you're running the game and introducing firearms, you get to decide exactly how realistic their implementation is, and which bits of realism you incorporate. If you want to make revolvers 2d8 damage superweapons because that is "realistic", you are not also required to apply sound-based perception penalties after firing one just because that would also be "realist...

    A video game following 5e rules and aesthetics sounds interesting, but what would the story even be about? Abdel's been dead for 25 years, Bhaal's alive and kicking, and I'm assuming Ao would throw Bhaal sixteen feet through an announcer's table if the latter tried the Bhaalspawn thing again. Unless Abdel gets a resurrection (commence eyeroll while pointing at Bruenor and company), is there any reason to tie it to the Baldur's Gate IP at all? I think it’s been long enough that you can do a Baldurs Gate 3 without it being a direct sequel. It could tell a new story in the city (perhaps even tie in to and expand upon Descent into Avernus).

    I assume the reason this was not implemented RAW is because sitting out a turn doing nothing isn't fun. The way things are, you're at least getting a chance to get a hit in every turn. I'm fine with having a round or 2 sitting out reloading, there's a reason pistols were often used with swords and muskets had bayonets. I want to encourage such things.

    I assume the reason this was not implemented RAW is because sitting out a turn doing nothing isn't fun. The way things are, you're at least getting a chance to get a hit in every turn. Besides, the only classes that can use the DMG Renaissance firearms to their full potential are Rogues who took Weapon Master to get proficiency, and maybe Tempest, War, and Death Clerics using Divine Strike tk shore up the damage? Jacking up the reload time would punsih even them for using those firearms, which are pretty suboptimal for everybody else. Sure they have a bigger damage die, but almodt everybody who can use them also wants to use Extra Attack, and the ammo is way more expensive than it's worth. Well for a renaissance setting the weapons need to be a lot cheaper, and count as simple weapons. PCs should be using a brace of pistols, and I wouldn't expect a PC to carry a musket, it's more something you'd see an enemy squad carrying.

Anything else is simply people using their freedom of expression to express their belief that the accused is a :):):):). #metoo, both in its initial form as an organized protest against abuses of position and power perpetrated by Hollywood executives against actresses, and as a wider movement speaking out against sexual assault and exposing cases of harassment that would otherwise go unheard, has been a net benefit simply for the fact that on a macro scale, it has tightening an imbalance of power. Previously, victims of sexual assault often stayed silent as their abuser or assaulter had more resources at their disposal, in the form of money, connections, and reputation. Attempting to launch such a serious claim against their character alone, without support, would only lead to the ruin of the assaulted, no matter the truth of the situation. They would be drowned in lega...

    They recommend placing Saltmarsh in Q'barra and involving House Phiarlan with the smugglers. Which is fairly obvious, when you think about it. At least, that's what I had been planning on all along.

    From the screenshots, "midway between Waterdeep and Neverwinter".I suppose they had to say that, since they haven't officially supported any part of the Realms beyond Chult and the Sword Coast ... but I still find it interesting because the DDAL "season agnostic" Dreams of the Red Wizards plotline puts Saltmarsh and the GoS adventures in the Sea of Fallen Stars.
  • 12:36 AM - BookBarbarian quoted Psyzhran2357 in post The Charismatic Fighting "Hero" - Which Core Class does it Best?
    Ancients Paladin. Be the life of the party. Conquest Paladin. Drop the preachy :):):):):):):):) and smite some fools. Redemption Paladin. Be the person who gelieves in those who don't believe in themselves. Life of the Party character's are rarely main heroes. They tend tend to be supporting characters. Conquest has some Dark and Brooding stuff going for it, but it's not all that heroic by nature. Great Anti-hero though. Redemption is back to being support again. Edit: Conquest and Redemption are also from splat books which makes them outside the OP's parameters.
  • 12:10 AM - Saelorn quoted Psyzhran2357 in post The Charismatic Fighting "Hero" - Which Core Class does it Best?
    Except that the OP was specifically looking for charismatic heroes, and unless somebody rolled 14-18 for all 6 stats, Charisma is probably not going to be a priority to invest in, so that Battlemaster Fighter doesn't come out as the most charismatic of fellows. They're going to place their highest number in one of Strength or Dexterity so their attacks can land more often and deal more damage, then in Constitution so they don't die, and then probably in Wisdom so they're less likely to get caught with their pants down. Yes, if you're trying to fulfill a literary trope, then you need to give your characters some literary consideration. That is to say, as the designated protagonist, they should be rolling 1d6+12 for each stat. Low stats are for chumps. If you're rolling randomly, then the warrior hero is the fighter who happened to roll well in Charisma. If you aren't rolling randomly, then the closest you can come is a Battle Master with the Rally maneuver, which is not an optimal build (though i...

A plot idea I have is for Shou Lung to have undergone a dynastic shift some time in the mid-late 1400s DR, with the new dynasty maybe swallowing T'u Lung or Koryo. The last scion of the previous dynasty, who survived and fled to Faerun, would be a major NPC and quest giver for a hypothetical party. I'd love some Kara Tur Novels.

    And the discussion for the last 55 pages was why that may or may not be the best of ideas, so thanks for sharing I guess...? You are very welcome! My players and I enjoy it and honestly nobody has ever mentioned how using elements of real world cultures, aka the concepts of shaman/witch doctors in primitive societies, is making them into a racist statement on any real world culture. I can't say I base gaming decisions on anything other than what my table will find enjoyable. Trying to redefine D&D monsters though a lense of social and racial justice has never been a drive of ours as we have never tried to use them as a stand in for anything other than foes to be overcome. They need some kind of basic culture to use when making descriptions so unless writers come up with something truly alien they end up using elements of real world cultures. We don't look at orcs as stand in for whatever group you want to say they are a stand in for, they are just orcs. Obviously other feel differently and that'...
