    I have to admit, I use the 5e morale rules and I find they work great. I'm probably not a real stickler for the details of the rules, but, typically I start rolling when it's obvious that the baddies are going to lose. Which is usually after about 1/3 of the baddies go down/lost HP. Adds a nice tactical element, and it means that it's a very viable tactic to spread the damage rather than focus...

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

    Given the plethora of healing available in 5e, I donít think it would be unreasonable to think that combat evolves a bit and hacking downed targets becomes a lot more viable of a tactic.

    Iíd say that as far as kitbash stuff goes, either will get the job done. Once you know the syntax that either program uses, itís likely about equal.

    I'm not explaining myself well enough. It's not that FG is a bad program. It isn't. It does what it says on the tin, by and large. But, for 130 dollars I expect a HELL of a lot more than what it does.

    Sure, you can make it easier and organize things. Totally agree. Doesn't change the point that each of those pictures take about five steps in order to use. As compared to drag and drop which every other VTT does. One other issue to bear in mind too is the ability to port forward on your router. This has been an issue for me since my router doesn't support port forwarding, requiring me...

    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. Download the image to your computer and place it into the right folder...

    Like I said, for the price, fantasy grounds should be a hell of a lot better than it is. To give an example, the number of steps required to add something as simple as a single image is a bad joke. Find the pic, download it to your computer in the correct directory. Go back into fg find the file through the images tab, hope that you know the file name because good luck finding it otherwise....

    I use Fantasy Grounds, but, I have to admit, I really have a love/hate relationship with it. Sure, as a DM, you get fantastic tools. Really great stuff for getting up and running. On the downside though, it's unbelievably expensive for what you get. I mean, an ultimate license is going to run you 150 bucks, another 150 bucks (maybe 100 depending on the discounts you get) for the core...

    I think this, more than anything is why you rarely see groups hiring. And in my experience dms as well hate the idea. Too much paperwork.

    See, from my perspective, Bioware hasn't really done anything to lose my good will. Mass Effect is my favorite game franchise, after Civilization, of course. For %95-97 of its length, ME# is the best game in the series. Most refined mechanics, best character moments - thanks, obviously to two prior games worth of build-up. Dragon Age 2 is a well-written written RPG with great characters,...

    Loads of emotion and personal stakes? Oh, noes, I have to get my multi-billion dollar company back because, if I don't, I'll only be the chosen one savior. Gee, yeah, totally see the stakes there. Like I said, the bad guy is a smarmy businessman who isn't actually all that wrong. Danny as CEO is a financial disaster. Like I said, the stakes are totally unimportant. If Danny fails, he's...

    But, I think that's what makes Jessica Jones and Daredevil much better shows. Sure, JJ is an alcoholic, but, it's never "let slide" in the show. It's destructive as all get out. Watching JJ implode is a big part of what makes the show good. Same with Daredevil. His self-destructive tendencies cause so much of the plot. It's a big old dose of catharsis. And, there's the other point. ...

    Mustrum_Ridcully - you're spoiler tags don't work. Just finished the series. The season finale was not what I was expecting, although, to be fair, it's foreshadowed quite a few times in earlier episodes. Much more low key. For a show about an invulnerable strong guy, there are surprisingly few actual fights in the show. I'm still mulling over whether I really like the season, or if I'm...

    Heck pcs having standard hps are the norm in 5e. And, Rand hps for monsters so I can fudge is a pretty weak argument from my POV.

    Wait, what? I live in a polytheistic country - Japan. And, I'm going to tell you right now that there ARE standardized rituals, and uniforms for priests and standardized holy days in Shinto. I'm not sure what kind of polytheism you are thinking of, but, most religions, whether mono or polytheistic, have pretty standardized rituals and holy days and easily recognizable priesthoods.

    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.

    Itís not cheating if itís fun? Fun for who? And how do we measure that? Since fudging is generally secret, the players canít judge. Note, kit bashing is another kettle of fish. Thatís above board and tacitly agreed upon by all participants. If fudging isnít cheating then why do dms keep it secret?

    Whereas I think thatís 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...

    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.

    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...

    darth_dom Can you take an AoO on a party member? Say he was fleeing because he was frightened, could you trip him? JeremyECrawford An opportunity attack is triggered by a foe. (The game won't break if a DM lets it work against an ally.) JeremyECrawford Without a special ability, you can't trip someone with an opportunity attack, which is a plain melee attack. @MtS_Designer Wild Shape have the "magically" word into description, what happens to a druid that enters a antimagic field? JeremyECrawford Wild Shape is suspended in an antimagic field. severoc the feet "elemental mastery" works on habilities like "Hearth of the Storm" from Stormbor JeremyECrawford The Elemental Adept feat benefits spells. The Heart of the Storm feature isn't a spell. @trueDaleCooper One With Shadows: Since u can't take Hide action during it, can u even stealth with it? Do enemies auto-know where u are? JeremyECrawford One with Shadows confers the benefits of being invisible. You are right that it doesn't also make you silent. DMVArrowe69 For Paladin/Sorcerer if I cast gflame blade and use Divine Smite, does the smite apply to both creatures? JeremyECrawford Divine Smite works only on the creature you hit.
