    So you get done complaining about them reselling you the same material over and over again, then beg then to resell you classes in the PHB. Thank God. I'm quite happy of the limits high level spellcasters have, and see no desire to return to Godling mages. Another thankful moment. I like my group buy ships, taverns and such rather than seek out and buy stat-boosting treadmill crap...

    Ebberon hardcover. The UAs and AL support isn't just for a $20 PDF.

    I think it's closer to done than we all think. Most of the UAs were late 2018 into 2019, and the gap between UA and finished product can be really small (Ravnica had a UA a few months before the book came out, sidekicks were playtested in Jan for a product coming in June). They have the feedback they need for everything but the second round of artificer; and if I full book doesn't come out this...

    Everyone is excited for planescape and I'm still convinced it's going to be Ebberon. They didn't do 5 UAs (races, dragonmarks, magic items, and two artificers) and extensive testing via AL for a 200-page, $20 PDF with recycled art. I'm still thinking Ebberon first, Planescape PDF in June

    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?

    My point is that they aren't creating any new material here. It doesn't even need the 3.5 -> PF1 conversion that Rise of the Runelords needed. I don't expect them to give away a dead tree product for nothing, but is reformatting already done work worth the same amount as converting to a semi-compatible system like 5e?

    Ok, I get the effort needed to convert the bestiary to 5e would take manpower and time, but why on Earth are they charging for the Pathfinder 1e conversion? The original was written in 1e. Every stat block is already done. Most, of not all, of the new monsters are on d20pfsrd. I could create a "conversion" bestiary in a day just buy ripping the stat blocks out of the original PDFs and pasting...

    I think that is an important part - it's self-sacrifice. It's not someone murdering her to get at the hero (be the intention by the "author" or by the in-universe murderer). She has full agency, and is making a decision.

    Well, the movie had an extended run time already, and it's not like group funerals are common in such scenarios. It was either Stark or Black Widow, and if anyone would have a big funeral with plenty of visitors, it's probably the rich guy, and not the spy.

    And yet... AD&D 1e players, whose system was no longer supported as of 1989, still bought new material (either converting 2e stuff back, or later using OSR stuff). So while technically an RPG is never lacking for new material as long as you have a clever DM and some inspiration, even the deadest system's players still clamor for new material.

    I can only say how I understood it, and it made sense to me: The different timelines are essentially different universes. What you do there can't affect the timeline you're from, e.g. what ever happened already there will always happen. So you can't go back to undo the snap, because that wouldn't be in your timeline, but someone else's. If you take something from the timeline you visit,...

    By 1979, it was too late and you had fighter, thief, ranger, paladin, assassin and monk. You have to smother that infant in 1975, and take the druid out at the same time before that gains traction and creates a billion caster variants with it.

    The project is somewhat different. M5 was not a project for operational planning. This could have been a major factor in Control - he knew too much and had too great responsibilities and power. M5 was an attempt to merely automate a single ship. Since Control already could do this with the Section 31 ships, it is possible that the technological background was quite different to limit M5 more,...

    It's on Netflix. Brit Marling plays a woman that disappeared years ago - when she disappeared, she was still a blind teen-aged girl, but when she is found again, she can see. She recruits an unusual group of people for a purpose that is slowly revealed as she tells them (and with that, the audience) her unlikely (if not unbelievable) story.

    The problem I see is that those races don't share anything (much) in common. There is no common ability bumps, no common abilities beyond darkvision, even languages beyond common is different. I mean, its the same as making goblins, hobgoblins, and bugbears sub-races of a "goblinoid" race.

Every time they reference some obscure lore and give it a use in the story. Enterprise and Discovery finally told us what happened to the USS Defiant. If you don't care about Star Trek, and "disrespect" it, no one would drag out that old chestnut. ...

    Rey repeating Luke's journey is probably a deliberate feature. The idea of TFA seemed to simply retall the original Star Wars success story. Star War got as popular as it got because it had Luke's heroic journey and the underdog rebellion vs the evil overboarding Empire. If they want to recapture that success and build a new series of movies on that, they need to tell that story again to the...

  • 08:52 PM - Mercurius mentioned Remathilis in post Ravnica: Is This The New D&D Setting? [UPDATED & CONFIRMED!]
    Based on the Nathan Stewart quotes that Remathilis posted, it sounds like we're going to see three setting products (of some kind) this year, two that "hardcore fans" like, and then the "surprise" Ravnica later this year. What is interesting is that he says they'll be playable this year, and something about this summer. That means that we'll either see a surprise book(s) at GenCon or some kind of PDFs, with a book(s) early next year, like I previously speculated.

  • 11:45 AM - Coroc mentioned Remathilis in post How To Darksun
    Remathilis #14 I ran MotRD quite fine as a little sidekick in my greyhawk campaign. Of course you have to alter a few things, but since this is mainly a RP - orientated with a Little bit of riddle solving adventure - it is absolutely easy to convert. (I am only talking about the actual MoTRD adventure not the other two in the boxed set or the Setting as such but also the modern classes introduced therein are easy to reshape in 5e but that would derail the thread to much) What i did (and that's about the only thing in MotRD which is easy to do with 2e mechanic but close to impossible in 5e) is to make the red death an unattackable thing, a force of fear and instant death for the Players foolish enough to engage it in direct combat. Which is the RAW Intention in the 2e adventure also.

    Remathilis Ok, now i understand, and on this one i even agree with you, for consistency there would be better ways to realize the basic rulebook, but in this case i would want to have explicit stating it that a DM only has to use the parts of it which he needs. It would be a little dull to read though, compared with the way they integrate some fluff into PHB or DMG now. I think many things in the PHB could be labeled optional and everything would be fine: e.g. Elves(optional) even Humans (optional) heck, it would be best to clarify all things which could be reasonable optional as such. In the end all you really need is some of the most Basic game mechanics, like character generation, to hit and damage rolls saving throws etc.
  • 07:52 AM - Coroc mentioned Remathilis in post Two New Settings For D&D This Year
    Remathilis #474 "Except it's not...." The way i do it is different. See, i discuss the General outline of a Setting and how i intend to run it upfront. Then i create a Matrix with playable race class Combos. This i give to the Players and ask them to find something nice. They also discuss with each other to get some sort of Balance to the Group. If anyone is missing anything i will check if i can somehow shoehorn it in, but that has not been the case yet. I do include things if they make sense, e.g. i dm Greyhawk atm allowed Player races are human halfelf halforc tiefling Gnome and that's it. All of them are accepted in the free lands. I use the official material as a Frame for a classic good vs evil campaign in a qasi Renaissance Environment. Iuz and his orc hordes bolstered by demons have plundered and marauded the lands. Each of the Special races makes sense: Halfelves and halforcs are mostly orphans of war. Dwarves and elves exist but only as npcs they few and often remote. Tiefli...

  • 12:42 PM - Coroc mentioned Remathilis in post Two New Settings For D&D This Year
    Aldarc exactly that. Eberron has colored Dragons, but they are not necessary of eveil alignment. They got Orc druids. Hobgoblins, Kobolds can peacefully roam around in cities. Drow revere scorpions instead of Spiders. So many things are there but most with a Twist. Fluffwise it may be the Setting which is hardest to converse, e.g. you just cannot pick the Monster manual and select a red Dragon as the next oponent because chances are that he is one of the good guys. So that is totally against the core rules by Remathilis Definition.
  • 07:51 AM - Coroc mentioned Remathilis in post Two New Settings For D&D This Year
    Remathilis "Moreover, what are you *cutting* from the PHB to make Dragonlance work? Half-orcs? Forcing all halflings to take the Kender subrace? Maybe tieflings? " An alternate Setting is different, by cutting things and more importantly by adding things. With DS it is so easy to do most of the things as refluff of existing races Humans can stay as they are Halflings ditto Elves, use the Wood elf Halfelves can stay as they are Dwarves use the hill dwarves Mul use the Halforcs stats, give Advantage vs. Exhaustion Halfgiants use the Mountain Dwarves stats give Advantage to strength Thrikkreen take Dragonborn breathweapon stats for a poison bite, give them +2 dex and +1 wis and some jumping ability So thats just a Little re using and refluffing there i could imagine you would even be fine with just that.

    Remathilis So you have got the opinion that DS is fundamentally mechanically different and should either be ist own product or totally watered down to FR Standard (Lol "watered" see what i did there ?), i got that, but what about Krynn? Why do you consider this one (DL) so easy compared to DS? You got the three moons and Magic strength dependant on them, Spells available dependant on alignment, Depending on the starting Point of a campaign clerical Magic might not be working, You got Dragonlances! How do you represent them for 5e? A +5 weapon doing Players HP to Dragons? You got of course Dragon Mounts, very cool Marketing Gadget, every younger Player would love that, they would be stupid to release DL without that. Aaaand if you got your dragonlance and a Dragon mount you can channel the Dragons breathweapon through it. Same but a Little less complicated goes for eberron.

    Well, that makes sense. In 4e was the same. You were able to go to Dark Sun from other planes, but it was really hard because of the Grey. I am with Remathilis. I don't understand why people cannot acknowledge a Dark Sun that evolves alongside D&D. I said it before, some rules must be adapted when older settings are converted to a new edition, but for that to work, the setting also needs to adapt to the new rules.

    The thing is, elves, dwarves and halflings are the most tired sub-Tolkien derivative clichés, who should really be at the top of the list for the chop in order to make a setting that is actually interesting. I can get behind that. And if I was to build a setting based on your view instead of Remathilis's - the basics of D&D ought to be present in D&D - I'd happily chop them.

  • 12:22 PM - Coroc mentioned Remathilis in post Mechanics of Revived Settings; your thoughts?
    Paul Farquhar I think Remathilis does not differ between fluff aka examples of commonly used or rarely used ingredients for D&D: (tiefling race, sci fi laserweapon) and real mechanics: attributes rolls etc. Also in the Core books there is several material stated explicitely as being optional, even Gnome race for PCs. Also there is a heavy recommendation to change every rule that you and/or your Players do not like in your homebrew. Apart from organized play there is no need at all for any fluff rule (liek playable race) to apply in a given setting, only if you make mechanical differences in your homebrew then it becomes important to communicate These and be aware of how they might afflict game Balance. There are numerous other examples where These Basics apply even if you stay true to the core rules. e.g. -druid summoning (any animal? No, the DM has the last word), -Magic items (not needed for Balance, would Paul Farquhar insist at least 1 of each Magic item exists in any given game world?), -Magicians sp...

    Remathilis #111 <<Anyway, I derailed this thread too long. Yay Mystara, a setting that requires 1/10th the amount of work to convert to 5e. >> Well on that one i agree with you, you can easily put giant space hamsters and ninja mutant Hobbit pirates into that setting and it won't break anything. #111 and #112 Hm so you would be ok, if they published DS with its own brand, while still using 90% of the D&D math, but you are not ok if they publish it with the D&D logo on unless altering 90% of the original Setting to include every shenanigan from the PHB, and maybe Purple Dragon knisghts from scag too? I try to understand your point of view, is it that you want D&D as a game that can be played like, e.g. some one joins a group the first time and he does not have to worry about any houserule the DM might have created because there are None, since all the rules in the PHB apply cast in iron as lets say the rules for chess? And that has to go for any campaign world wich is officially suppo...

    Remathilis #104 i do partially agree on 3e RL and DL 4e darksun is debatable, but i cannot judge that much about 4e because i never played it except in Neverwinter MMPORPG. From what i know 4e seems to be a pretty good System for Darksun though if you consider the mechanics, especially for healing in 4e. Monks in DL is not unbalancing things. No Dragon riding Knight of Takisis will be impressed by a Monk. Monks in DS unbalance everything, the survival vibe, the inferior weapon / armor System, all of that does not hamper the Monk the slightest but almost every other class / build (Same goes for barbarian in a way) 5E Warlocks would be great for Templars i hope it is the official ruling if they ever do one, it fits so much better than clerics. 5E Warlocks could even be a good Substitution for elemental clerics,just make the patron some elemental prince. But this does not alter the vibe, and it does not alter the challenges so it does not hurt at all. In game you do not see wehre the "di...

    Remathilis #103 But these Settings do not rewrite the core game. Even in the core game drow and dragonborn are optional except maybe AL i don't know about that. And the cor mechanics stay the same, you still got six attributes hit Points a proficiency Bonus, initiative to hit roll etc. etc. Nothing of the math is altered. You compare things like not admitting a race for a specific campaign world with altered mechanics, such as armor for damage reduction or percentile dice for to hit rolls, or spell armor class instead of saving throws. Thats not the Point of a 5e conversion. A conversion should stay as true as possible, for the mechanics - but classes, races, spells, allowed is nothing different than allowing an accessoire like SCAG or not. You would never suggest that instead of Publishing SCAG Wizards should have created a different game System, would you?

    Remathilis #99 Ok, now i begin to see more clearly. But let me counter that: To use Ravenloft with the original vibe which encompasses 99% of the published material except curse of strahd 5 e accesoire you got to: -Treat every dragonborn, drow, halforc and in several Domains even elves or dwarves as Monsters by most NPCs. Their natural reaction might range from distrust via fear to outright agression. - Analyse every published 5E spell for a "evil" denominator like e.g. casting "power word kill" and most damaging necromatic spells like "ray of sickness" would clearly be an evil act and call for a powers check (new mechanic you would have to introduce) with appropriate punishments for the PCs. These of course must be checked for Balance in accordance to 5e game mechanics if they include e.g. permanent ability score losses. - Depending on the darklord but applicable for most of the better known Domains most Paladins of lawful good alignment are marked for KoS the Moment they appear in a...

    Remathilis Well then Ravenloft is not D&D either for you? (Some still say it worked best with AD&D or AD&D 2nd rules btw.) To enhance this, Eberron is also not very Standard D&D, i mean Orc Druids being the good ones and an elven dragon being one of the big bad bosses? I never Play modern games like star wars, and to Label them as D&D would be unfitting eventually, but in the case someone would use 5e rules and adapt them for star wars and call that D&D next Star Wars i would see it as what it is : a brand Name. On your third Party idea: Well there is something close to this for darksun i believe athas.org has soem rights in this, although i don't know how far they are entitled. I still do not see the Problem to use 5E for darksun. There are no official 5E greyhawk products, i use old stuff, convert it and adapt it and voila it works for me and my Group. I do not see the absolute need on darksun being totally different System though, if it were that way it would not have worked out ...

    Remathilis #90 Please do not get me wrong, i do not want to stick to e.g. 2e anachronisms for the sake of Tradition, which were already bad rules back then and often changed by houserules. What i did want to Point out was that the vibe of these nonvanilla worlds often came by leaving out some options of the Standard game and adding new stuff. E.G. Darksun had no Paladins. Every one back then was thinking : Oh thats interesting, no shining Knights of good, this makes the campaign world even more gritty. No one was crying about not being able to play a thrikreen Paladin or a Kender from Krynn and nobody was crying about not using the Standard phb Options to create his e.g. human character because the attributes were created with a different method to achieve higher averages and the starting Level was three , to counter the deadliness of the Setting. Darksun is about survival it is not about diversity and inclusion, one of the principles of the setting is that it is excluded and almost i...

    Sadly, I see it in retail all the time. New Bluray for 29.99 somewhere, and the same thing at a different store for 19.99. And the 29.99 sells... Overall I see Remathilis ' point. From the info they gave, they are designing something to do a thing that is done cheaper already elsewhere. While other people's points are valid, I honestly think there is going to be a point of "oops" or "hey did you know?" coming from Dialect and then changes in offering or prices.

    ...ove a creature, you can use your bonus action to make a weapon attack against that creature. Things I'd like to add but am unsure about: - adding unarmed strike for Sneak Attack (ie eye gouging, fish hooking, headbutting), would work great (too great?) with grappling. - a version of the Mastermind's 13th lvl feature Misdirection, "use a reaction to force an attack to target the creature you're grappling with instead of you". Idea stemmed from Larrin's input. - Delete Dirty Work's advantage on grapple/shove checks (with expertise & reliable talent, adv. is just overkill) and replace with Cheap Shot. Too powerful at 3rd level? Things I thought about: - Ilbranteloth's reaction v. prone, but thought 1) it requires teammates, limited use when no one else can prone for you, 2) if teammates can prone for you, theoretically limitless source of off-turn reaction sneak attacks (two sneak attacks per round) is more powerful than comparable features (Thief's Reflexes, Death Strike). - Xeviat Remathilis , I have no issue with the mechanical balance of Sneak Attacking with any weapon. Personally I just prefer the image of thugs using one-handed weapons; grab enemy with one hand, shank/bash with the other. I left versatile in mostly because of wording issues, and justified it to myself with baseballs bats (versatile quarterstaves) seeming thematic.

    Everyone is excited for planescape and I'm still convinced it's going to be Ebberon. They didn't do 5 UAs (races, dragonmarks, magic items, and two artificers) and extensive testing via AL for a 200-page, $20 PDF with recycled art. I'm still thinking Ebberon first, Planescape PDF in June Eberron is certainly coming, but it might not be ready for primetime yet...

    My point is that they aren't creating any new material here. It doesn't even need the 3.5 -> PF1 conversion that Rise of the Runelords needed. I don't expect them to give away a dead tree product for nothing, but is reformatting already done work worth the same amount as converting to a semi-compatible system like 5e? Maybe you should re-read the initial pitch, because there is going to be at least some new material. Not exactly sure how much...

    Ok, I get the effort needed to convert the bestiary to 5e would take manpower and time, but why on Earth are they charging for the Pathfinder 1e conversion? The original was written in 1e. Every stat block is already done. Most, of not all, of the new monsters are on d20pfsrd. I could create a "conversion" bestiary in a day just buy ripping the stat blocks out of the original PDFs and pasting them into pagemaker. $35 for copy-pasted stats is ridiculous. Sure, if all they were doing were pasting them to an a Word document that you could download. But doing layout and having it look decent requires effort, then there's the whole bit about it being a hardback book which, if you expect that for free is ridiculous.

    You all are so enamoured with your GH vs FR measuring contest that you ignore that fact this has a MYSTARA placement section! New setting book in 2020. I'm calling it.[emoji1] That was my initial thought, too: technically, we already have a licensed 5E version of Mystara, in the Isle of Dread hardcover. I wouldn't be surprised if that factored into including Mystara here: set Saltmarsh in the Known World, use the Goodman Games Isle of the Deep scenario as a follow-up adventure for veteran sailor PCs.

  • 01:49 PM - S'mon quoted Remathilis in post Paizo To Make Kingmaker Bestiary... For D&D 5E!
    And yet... AD&D 1e players, whose system was no longer supported as of 1989, still bought new material (either converting 2e stuff back, or later using OSR stuff). So while technically an RPG is never lacking for new material as long as you have a clever DM and some inspiration, even the deadest system's players still clamor for new material. The line I quoted was about a "system that doesn't grow", not about "material" - which could be adventures, campaign settings and such using the system without adding any more rules. I think everyone likes to see new material in the latter sense.

    My moon druid has Mobile, which we ruled stacks with his wild shape form (so his speed is always the animals speed +10 ft) I’d say that’s a pretty clear RAW. Also fun, if you’re multiclassed, you can use stuff from the other class while in Wild Shape, as long as you’re physically capable of doing so. So, Monk Unarmored Movement, Deflect Missiles (but not the redirect part unless you’re in an already form, I’d say), Barbarian Unarmored Defense and Rage, possibly Paladin’s Smite is even.

  • 11:06 PM - oreofox quoted Remathilis in post Sneak Peek At Ghosts of Saltmarsh Maps
    YMMV and all, but that is the worst possible use of a map I can think of. Maps are there to provide names, scale, orientation, and (in the case of D&D maps) locations to key encounters. A textless map doesn't do any of that. Imagine you are reading the text of an encounter in Saltmarsh and it tells you "Old Durig can be found hiding at the Dancing Dryad (Area 47)". You want to know a few things first about this locale. Where is it? How far is it from the Wicker Goat (where the PCs are now)? What street is it on? Is it near the water or deeper inland? What direction does the PCs need to go to get there? That's all stuff the text on a map tells you easily. Without it, you'd be forced to make all that stuff up yourself (its 1.5 miles across town at the edge of the pier to the east) and the point of including said map is wasted; you could put any pretty picture there and it would have as much info. I should have been a bit clearer about the textless map. My bad and I apologize. In an adventure boo...

    Are we also forgetting that this map is in a book and most D&D manuals are printed with vertical orientation, so that printing a horizontally-aligned map would require either being a smaller 1/2 page map or a larger two page spread? I'll take an East oriented map over losing a page to a double spread city map or a half-sized harder to read one. Quoted for truth.

    Meh. Just give casters access to healing magic and allow warriors to sub out heavy armor and multiple attacks for improved skills and one big-damage hit. Then you only need a caster and a warrior class. Everything else is subclasses and multi-classing. Reductio Ad Absurdum. No, no. Why have to when we could have one that does everything? Or better yet why not make players act out every single thing they do and judge success based on their execution?

    Swashbuckler, For myself, this is true only, because of Khalis's Light Armor Fighter variant here on ENWorld along and with his subclasses that he included with it (I, really, dislike the Rogue Swashbuckler). Shaman Mearls mentioned on his Happy Hour that he is planning a Shaman class. Unfortunately, in my opinion, he said it will be drawing on WoW's Shaman. To date, I have yet to find a 5e subclass for an existing a class or a Shaman base class that I consider to do the concept well. In fact, the only D&D shaman class that I consider to be well done was Green Ronin's Shaman class for 3e. Dread Necromancer, Spellthief, Ninja, Invoker, Avenger, Warden, Duskblade/Swordmage, Shadowcaster, Dragonfire Adept, Runepriest, Seeker, Warlord*, and Assassin. * YMMV. I wouldn't mind a good Swordmage class (multi-classing is optional and I do not like the Eldritch Knight covering the idea) or a Warlord class (if the latter can do the Lazy Warlord, The Princess Warlord, and the Mowgli Warlor...
