    I was going to make this post in the Original Misbegotten waif thread erroneously started by moi, but it was closed some time ago. So, anyway, I think I really want to start a 5E D&D game of a sandbox nature, because I have virtually no ideas about what I want the game to be. So in theory, the players could set the agenda for the game, but it would really work better if there was some...

    With a word from Bixby, Bucky charges forward knocking the bug aside and ending up in S28 just barely. His attack does not harm S27. Bixby casts his spell and the two centipedes take the full brunt of the damage. R27; R28: 1D20+2 = +2 = 10 1D20+2 = +2 = 6 Alan's first attack fails but the second attack kills the bug in R27. The centipedes go. R26 takes 3 attacks on Triessa. R27 is dead....

    This is not a complete turn for Zyara: I'm going to do Zyara's turn a bit slower this time as whether or not the knight fall is important. 5 is still mounted. Damn, so much to keep track of. I'm trying to figure out Z's hp total. How did knight 3 attack Zyara twice when he was supposed to be charging and then she interrupted that charge with her AoO Trip. He should only get one attack...

    Initiative: Bixby and Alan get to act before the centipedes. Then we'll do side by initiative. Indicate which centipede you are attacking by map coordinate. Bixby 25 Alan 16 Centipedes: 1D20+6 = +6 = 13 Triessa 9 Elkhorn: 1D20+4 = +4 = 6 Coralin 0 Remember to post your moves action by action.

    The kobold start gibbering in draconic until someone shouts, "Speak common". He then talks fast in Common and repeats himself often but this gist is, "Please no hurt me. Lizard tribe rule kobold tribe. Hideout that way. I can show you." He points east along the path you were following previously. "Lizards want slaves. Take people for something in swamp.

    I thought they were flatfooted when initiative was rolled. So they would not have had a free action yet to create the smoke. Also, that smoke is even more annoying as every attack (including those made by the nightmares and riders) have a 20% miss chance. And using a lance on a nightmare is just dumb as anything more that 5' away has a 50% miss chance. But it shouldn't really matter: Fort...

    I kind of prefer multiple successes versus DCs in the 52 range. But there has to be a limit to how many failures. Maybe based on training. Untrained, your first failure means no more attempts. Trained, you get 1 failure. Second failure means no more attempts. Expert gets 2 failures, etc.

    Just a random thought. Warlocks with Maledictions are better at damage dealing cantrips than other classes. Which can lead to wanting more damage dealing cantrips than normal for the flexibility between cantrips. With the few cantrips known, this leads to less space for non-combat cantrips as an possible unintended consequence. But the warlock's limited spell slots does call on use of...

    Oh, a corner case: Tripling the range does some unexpected things for some spells. Sword Burst is now range 15' so it's a much larger circle around you (that can also toss one foe back and slow one foe). I had a few things written up about Booming Blade and Green-Flame Blade, but I realized they specify a save or a spell attack, so they are unaffected.

    I agree - doing this allows players to chose how they want to play their character, and you aren't doing both at the same time. I also do this for clerics - they get boost to weapon and cantrip. (Though if they somehow have Booming Blade or Green Flame Blade, not both).

    If your 6th level wizard isn't casting a few cantrips a battle your DM is doing something wrong. 6-8 encounters a day, 3-5 rounds per encounter. That's 18-40 actions to fill a day, call in 30. 25 on the lighter side. A 6th level wizard has 10 spell slots. So assuming they cast absolutely no spells outside of combat, and then only on their action, they're still using cantrips more than...

    I don't see why you couldn't give a downed ally a potion. Activating Potions You can activate a potion either by drinking it (which usually requires an Operate Activation action) or by feeding it to another creature (which instead requires an Interact action). Either method usually takes one hand, as indicated in a potion’s stat block. You can feed a potion to another creature only if...

    The weather one would be interesting if we changed the direction of the trend by season. If Down/Up had hotter/colder trends, and left/right had drier/wetter (or snow for the cold+wet). So starting near the bottom (as that's where you will end the cycle, spring trends RIGHT down (wet but getting warmer) summer trends DOWN left (more heat, somewhat drier), autumn LEFT up and winter UP right.

    No, they are not. Primarily because the video game idea of boss monsters, where you cap with a single overwhelming boss, isn't a great fit for 5e. Are they meant to be solo monsters? Sure, more than anything else, though as many others have pointed out 5e encounters generally work better with more enemy combatants. This is for a variety of reasons, a non-exclusive list would include the...

    There's one subset of capture scenarios I would handle differently. I dislike intentional capture scenarios where the only way forward with the plot is for the players to lose. If there's no chance of affecting the outcome, don't roll dice. It will show you if you really have player trust or not. Though if you want to deal with it like that, get your players in on it and have them give a...

    In addition to the offensive ability you are planning, I'd also suggest: Tactical Defense: You may use INT in place of DEX for any of your AC calculations. It is still limited by Max Dex of armor. It can apply to alternate AC calculations like Unarmed Defense. So basically you can have a medium or light armored INT fighter, and could even do something like a level of monk would let you...

    This feels like an entirely different mechanic with an entirely different purpose that just happens to be called he same. Not making any judgement as a mechanic, but it can exist alongside (or not) 5e Inspiration and doesn't fit the same design goals so it's probably better broken off and discussed on it's own merits.

    Moss rushes forward right behind the monk girl. But he doesn't strike at the horse-creature, he barely reaches its knees anyhow. Instead, he launches himself upwards and meets the gaze of the beast for the barest of moments. The gem embedded in his forehead shines for a moment and the mount shakes its head as if affected by something. It glares balefully at the diminutive opponent, but there is no other effect visible. jmucchiello Nightmare AC: 22 (13/17) Also, you passed nightmare smoke for which you should roll saves? Or two, three?

    Oh you beautiful wonderful bas…. Person OP. “Appropriate Thematics” is a beautiful word. It is a better than “It is the DM’s world. You don’t have to play in it”. If I would homebrew a campaign (I do Adventure League), for Appropriate Thematics I would ban: Feats, just because I want to see how the game would run without them. No Underdark races as PCs. I would like to keep the Underdark as evil place to visit; not one you go home to for your family reunion. Partial ban on Volo’s Monster. You come up with a great backstory. But you will be occasionally at disadvantage on something. Why because Grandma just got ran over by goblin in a goat cart. So I a coward Panda-s1. No I would start right out banning stuff because as jmucchiello said, I been burned by OFFICIAL MATERIAL before. Had Bob loan be the “Complete Copy of Paladins” for a week. I missed the big thing. I asked Bob, “Anything crazy or over powered in this paladin? “ And Bob replied, “No” First COMBAT ON THE FIRST LEVEL WITH HIS LEVEL ONE PALADIN OUT COMES a HOLEY AVENGER. Then Bob whined and half the table whined when I banned it. Sorry CapnZapp for decades in various games I been meeting players who say it is Official you must allow it. I have not discovered where this line of thought comes from.

    ...ollowed west, moments before. Seven knights, clad in black and riding fiery nightmares, cry out as they reach the floor, riding at full speed against the heroes! Behind them, the Drow run from the alesian forces, ignoring the recent arrivals. Heroes and knights are alone in the fields, each group facing the other. Fiery weapons are brandished by the attackers. At the far left and far right of their lines, a horn is blown and a banner flies proudly. Jousting lances risen, they're soon to be brought down against the heroes, should they allow. The nightmares barely touch the floor, making the charge eerily silent. They could leap upwards in flight at any moment! "YOU! YOU ARE THE ONES WE HOPED FOR! YOU ARE WORTHY OF OUR PROWESS! FACE US, SO VICTORY IN HONORED COMBAT GRANTS GLORY TO THE VICTOR!" - cries the knight in the center.

  • 09:18 AM - pemerton mentioned jmucchiello in post Do you enjoy playing roleplaying games in which you have no clue about the rules?
    ...he players at the table. That's their sole and crucial function. Mechanics can take multiple forms (I think this point goes back to Jonathan Tweet in Everway): Drama resolution relies on asserted statements without reference to listed attributes or quantitative elements. Karma resolution relies on referring to listed attributes or quantitative elements without a random element. Fortune resolution relies on utilizing a random device of some kind, usually delimited by quantitative scores of some kind. If playing without knowledge of the mechanics means lots of "drama" resolution - ie when I say what my PC does, then most of the time that just happens in the fiction - then it's fine although potentially a bit unexciting (the situations have to be pretty evocatively set out by the GM so that it's fun to engage with them knowing how that engaging is all I need to do to have things happen). If I'm meant to be learning the fiction, like the magic system described by Blue and jmucchiello, the GM had better provide me with the chance to learn! If playing without knowledge of the mechanics means lots of "fortune" resolution but only the GM knows what is going on - only the GM can call for a check, interpret a check, etc - then it's really a form of GM fiat resolution - the mechanics are imposing pretty minimal constraint under these circumstances - with the players along for the ride. The GM better be a good storyteller! Playing with heavily GM-mediated "karma" resolution makes me think of Amber diceless - I've never played it myself but that is how it looked when I saw others playing it.

  • 04:28 PM - Blue mentioned jmucchiello in post Do you enjoy playing roleplaying games in which you have no clue about the rules?
    I can enjoy playing without knowing the rules, but that's not my default. Way back when I had a great experience with this, run by jmucchiello. We knew nothing about anything, and all played young people from a backwater village, just coming of age and needing to go into the wider world. He ran a homebrew system, though part way through he (after talking to us) revamped the freeform magic system because we were getting the hang of it way too fast. I remember being thrilled at being able to make a rope harness and levitate it (since we knew the magic words for, I think rope and telekinesis plus some power booster words), but nothing that would allow us to fly ourselves. I'd have a couple of caveats to playing not knowing the rules, on top of the foundation of trust in your DM to be both fair and consistent. First, it must be that none of the players know the rules and we're all learning them just from interaction with the world. Some people knowing the rules and me not just makes me feel stupid. Second, we know the genre (at least to a degree). For example, assuming everything is gritty and death is cheap when the DM i...

As the companions approach under Moss' perched glance, the nymphs jump to their feet, either hiding their bodies into the fountain or running for cover. Their soft laughs soon become cries of fear as the group trudges towards the nymphaeum. Even a careful, pacific approach is enough to trigger them. Still, they do not run away, perhaps taken by curiosity, and now stare at the arrivals with a strange, unnatural look upon their reddened, ashamed faces. In a way, it is as if they were used to such encounters, but at the same time they do not seem very pleased by the sudden intrusion. "How dare you!" - one of them speaks, her body now hidden within the fountain, only the delicate neck and the blushed face showing. "This is our place of rest, and you just come waltzing in!

  • 01:53 PM - pemerton quoted jmucchiello in post Worlds of Design: What Makes an RPG a Tabletop Hobby RPG?
    I've said this before but what makes a game an RPG is pretty clearly a "family resemblance." This kind of searching for a clear logical boundary in terms of necessary and sufficient conditions/defining features is, therefore, bound to fail. It serves very little useful purpose. There are simply going to be a lot of counter-examples or features that don't quite work out "What is an RPG?" is a meaningless question. An RPG is whenever a group of two or more people get together to play "Let's Pretend" using some form of codified rule system for handling disagreements about what happens next. I think that the "avatar"/preteneding to be someone else aspect is pretty central to most RPGs. Likewise some sort of resolution system, though many RPGs have only ad hoc or highly-GM mediated rules for resolving conflicts. The resolution system focused around actions declared by the players for their "avatars" helps distinguish a RPG from a non-RPG cooperative storytellling game. Another element that I think...

    Sure, roll the healing. Waiting on Jericho's action. Sorry I should have updated my 3rd part to read that he step back one square. I can't make a potion this round that will last until next round so he is not doing anything

    I could have sworn I posted this days ago, but apparently it didn't take, or I'm remembering wrong. My question about knowing where the lizard folk were was based on this post: .... Up ahead of the party is definitely an ambush. There are several kobolds hiding behind the log blocking the road and you occasionally see a taller figure (probably one of the lizard folk) ducked down beside the road on the opposite side..... I take it, though that Surina doesn't have a sense of where the larger figure is, so she'll head for the kobolds, as stated above. She will, however, try to keep an eye out for the larger figure.

    The original Bunnies and Burrows was a 36 page book where there were just bunnies and 8 character classes including mystic classes. The game however was nearly unplayable as written since you needed to spend every waking moment eating lettuce or finding lettuce to eat. It is based on Watership Down and as noted above, that's not really a kid's book/movie. the lettuce is the baseline sustenance... 4 points per minute maximum intake is 2×(level +1) in 10 minutes. EP/10 min by food sources: Grass 0.1 Clover 0.2 Berries or mushrooms: 0.3 Lettuce 4 Carrot 5 Oats 6 one apple 7 one truffle 10 Spending it. Hopping (standard gate) 1 EP per hour Swimming/Running: 1 EP per minute Fight: 5 EP Sleeping: 1 EP per night. So, a level 0 rabbit in a fight, even if unscathed by the fight itself, loses 3 HP from hunger... of an average of 25 HP. Not feeding all day; your hyperbole is no service to anyone except haters. Have you even read the game as written? Oh, and it's 37 pages of cont...

    I did want more clarity on Hiromi's move. Don't say "1> Stride", say "1> Stride to G15" or something like that. Really? I mean, I can't visualise where everyone is going to be by the time it reaches my turn. My intention was to stride twice or stride and step, whichever got me into a flank. I don't know if we can get over that trough-thing in the middle or have to go the long way around. I would think people letting you know the purpose they are trying to achieve would be easier than being specific, otherwise we have to wait on a lot of back-and-forth. If you need me to be specific, I'd say I double-stride to G13, I guess? I think I'd have a flank there, but I have no idea. Depends on how that trough works, I think. Though I suppose the daemons are attacking across it?

    Please don't talk to me like i'm an idiot. I did answer 1 for these questions because there was no other choice. Then, after I finished the survey, I came here toe kvetch about the lack of choices. Here in a place where we are not limited to radio buttons choices of 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. I did not to have someone tell "the right way to answer the question." I'm not a child. Really? Hard to tell from this post.

    Assuming someone doesn't understand a freaking survey is insulting. You don't need to be an expert to understand "how interested are you in x?" This is insulting to people whose profession is data gathering like this. You are demonstrating your lack of knowledge and understanding. That isn't an insult. All people don't have knowledge of most things.

    I know. But still, there were a few of those "why do you play?" questions where I'm not just not interested in doing that. I'm not interested in playing with people who do those things habitually. That is perhaps interesting information for them to have as well. On a scale of 1 to 5, I want the ability to say -9. :) Answering 1 is the same as that. They are just asking the question in the positive. Do you like to play this way? Do you like to play that way? Making it a 10, 20, or 40 point scale and asking people what they hate about the way others play is not going to give them better info.
  • 04:36 AM - ad_hoc quoted jmucchiello in post New Survey
    There were questions where I wanted to say, "Not at all interested" wasn't good enough. I wanted to say, "Dead set against." or "If anyone does that, I leave the group." It's a Likert scale. Might be easier to just think of it as answering "1" on a scale of 1-5.
