    For those who have not checked out this kickstarter, John is not, quite generously, including PDFs of his previous kickstarters! This is a great deal for some great adventures.

    This is the 4th kickstarter project by John R Davis. His previous 3 were successful and this on is already funded... with 20 days to go. An adventure for 1st level PCs. It pays homage to early 1st edition modules such as Sinister Secret of the Saltmarsh and Against the Cult of the Reptile God. It also draws inspiration from 1980s adventures as featured in Tortured Souls, Imagine and White...

  • 06:42 AM - AaronOfBarbaria mentioned ddaley in post DM's Guild: What Do The Customers Think?
    ddaley, 77IM, if you want e-mail informing you of new products uploaded to the DMs Guild, you can sign in to the site, click on any product for which Dungeon Master's Guild is listed as the publisher (putting on the page where you can see the full product description), and then look at the left side of the screen - just below the "Narrow Results" box, there is a box that says "Follow Your Favorites!" within which there is a checkbox to click that sets you up to receive periodic emails telling you what's new. It works the same on all the other online stores run by the same company, as far as I know - I use it for some other game lines that don't have frequent releases or reliable sources of release date information so that I can see when something has come out, and it works well enough for me.

  • 07:32 AM - barasawa quoted ddaley in post Fighter Class Preview
    I don't have an issue with fighters getting attacks of opportunity at 1st level or with negative numbers... but, I do like the dice chain concept from Dungeon Crawl Classics... that is a fun alternative to penalties. Dice Chain is really just a different way to do bonuses and penalties, but instead of increasing or decreasing the total by 1 point per, it instead changes the maximum possible value rolled by 1 point per. (Since the DCC dice chain includes the odd numbers as dice as well, such as d5, d7, etc.) Mathematically it's about a 1/2 point weaker per point of bonus or penalty than the Pathfinder and D&D bonuses and penalties.
  • 04:27 AM - Ancalagon quoted ddaley in post Fighter Class Preview
    Is there something listed for the fighter that would prevent you from role playing? Of course not. Thank you for the deep insight. I guess we don't need those stealth bonuses for rogues, rangers and monks, they can just roleplay that. Charm spells, divination? Useless, let's roleplay that too! That druid changing himself into a fish? Totally can roleplay that. etc etc Do you catch my drift? Of course a first level peasant can roleplay! But some classes have special powers, skills and abilities that the fighter has been, historically speaking, quite limited in his access to. Thankfully, it seems that, based on other posts (thank you Arakasius ) the fighter will be better rounded outside of combat in this edition of pathfinder.

  • 12:17 AM - barasawa quoted ddaley in post How Pathfinder 2's Resonance Reduces Wand-Spamming; & Comparisons to 5E Discussed
    How many fragile bottles full of liquid could you reasonably stuff in your backpack while trudging through a jungle or delving into a dungeon without having them break. How much gear can your backpack hold? Having a reasonable limit doesn't seem contrived at all. Why carry "fragile bottles" in the first place. There are other substances that bottles can be made out of, and unless the GM rules otherwise, there's no rule that a potion can't be stored in those. In fact, you often find them in other types of containers in many adventures. This includes silver flasks, gourds, and a sealed bamboo segment. For that matter, in the old D&D days, we loved the spell of Glass Steel for making VERY tough bottles. (And see through shields, and peekaboo armor, and really cool looking weapons....) You can always bring that old classic back. I often do, especially since it doesn't break anything (sic), and can up the cool factor. :cool:

  • 09:08 PM - Lord Mhoram quoted ddaley in post How Pathfinder 2's Resonance Reduces Wand-Spamming; & Comparisons to 5E Discussed
    This is still bizarre... so, if you wear 1 ring for half a day and then take it off, but don another, does that use another resonance point? What if the "power" of the ring was never put to use during that time? If it were a ring of frost resistance, but you didn't encounter cold? Also, at what point does it consume a resonance point? When you wake up? At midnight? At sunrise? The way I looked at it - Magic items are passive, so you have to invest a tiny little bit of personal energy (magical potential, soul, aura - whatever) to make them work for you. You spend a resonance point to attune to the ring when you get up, and if you have free points, you can do that to any magic item during the day, or to a thing like a wand charge or whatever). The actually atuning happens when the player decides to attune to that time - once it's attuned it's attuned until you start again the next day (a lot of this is assumption - we have very little rules info to go on). So instead of the classic "yo...

How much gear can your backpack hold? Having a reasonable limit doesn't seem contrived at all.Unless you're going to get rid of extra-dimensional spaces entirely, it just increases the value of a bag of holding or handy haversack. I would certainly spend one Resonance on a bag that let me carry an extra hundred healing potions. That aside, if the only real limit on potions was how many you could carry, then every single adventurer would look like a Rob Liefeld character. Potion bandoliers are already an item in Forgotten Realms. Tying the limit into your carrying capacity would also unduly benefit larger characters over smaller ones (larger back = larger backpack), unless you start forcing arbitrary limits on backpack size and ownership. And if that becomes a burden, there are always pack animals, which I would really rat...

    In what way do potions not make sense? In terms of resonance? Potions could be self limiting in the sense that you can only carry so many of them. Exactly. Thematically potions doing nothing when you drink them without some kind of limited use mystical bond seems...bizarre. Every class is suddenly a magic class. I think youíre right about limited carry being a good solution.
  • 05:05 PM - Arilyn quoted ddaley in post How Pathfinder 2's Resonance Reduces Wand-Spamming; & Comparisons to 5E Discussed
    It is yet another thing to track. That is why I would prefer something like the idea of corruption from DCC... if you fail badly to use some device, then it has a negative consequence right then. Could get frustrating if you fail your first item of the day, and its just a piddly little potion. Actually, my favourite system is in 13th Age. All magic items have a semblance of intelligence. If you carry past your limit you start taking on the quirks of the magic item. Nothing to really track, leaves the decision in players' hands, and is a lot of fun.

  • 04:36 PM - shidaku quoted ddaley in post The Pathfinder 2 Barometer! Vote your initial hot take!
    As others have mentioned, there is room for PF2 along side PF1 and 5e. There is a middle ground that has more crunch than 5e but is more streamlined than PF1. And, if they can manage to make this backward compatible with existing PF1 adventures, then there will be tons of content available immediately. I don't have a problem with a more streamlined Pathfinder, but it's really the support that I'm in the game for. I don't play pre-made adventures, so when I say "massive product support" I'm talking about races, classes, spells, feats, magic items, and monsters. 5E covers all my "basic game needs". Pathfinder covers all my "crazy game needs". I don't really have "middle" game needs. Not to mention I just don't run that many fantasy games. P2 is essentially going to either compete with my 5E "basic game needs" or my Pathfinder "crazy game needs", and it won't do the latter for several years (much as it has taken years for 5E to get to they point they're at). I'm also just sort of g...

    Comic book stores loved you in the 90s I bet :) You know I never did comics, but Collectable Card Games were like some kind of crazy crack for me. 5 years clean though. I read this somewhere, and it has stuck with me ever since... Make the little decisions with your head and the big decisions with your heart. So, there ya go. Sounds good to me, so Deluxe Super Edition it is then. I wonder if book depository will have this to pre-order?

    Paizo should have introduced this via a kickstarter as opposed to pre-order... that way they could capture the interest and build excitement. I don't know why, but I rarely pre-order anything, but I back a ton of kickstarters! We considered that, but didn't feel like that would be fair to our brick and mortar retailer partners, who are a significant part of the Pathfinder ecosystem, and one that we're trying to support more and more.

  • 01:40 AM - Morrus quoted ddaley in post Want Starfinder on Fantasy Grounds? Now's the Time!
    Why is it an odd thing to say? Quite a few people use FG at the table... which is what I do. I find D&D Beyond more useful. It is much easier to navigate and easier to open items in tabs for reference during the session. I have spent quite a bit on FG, but have only used it once for a remote session. Itís an entirely different product. Like an SUV and a ice cream are.
  • 01:18 AM - Morrus quoted ddaley in post Want Starfinder on Fantasy Grounds? Now's the Time!
    DnD Beyond doesn't require a subscription. I hate subscriptions too, but actually subscribed to DnD Beyond. Figured I would try it for a year (bought the 1 year sub). I don't have to continue the subscription and won't lose any of my content by doing that. I may lose characters, if I have too many in the system. What on earth are you talking about? Fantasy Grounds is a virtual tabletop platform. D&D Beyond is a different thing altogether. What an odd thing to say.

  • 08:57 PM - Enevhar Aldarion quoted ddaley in post The Best Movie About RPGs in 2018 (So Far)
    If they try to appease people who will be offended by that, then this movie will suck. This is a fantasy world with fantasy religions where gods give powers to mortals in the form of spells. They will have to boycott the movie. Before people here get into some big religious argument, can anyone name some fantasy movies that featured, or even included, religion that were financially successful? Without going and digging around, the only thing that comes to mind for me is the Star Wars franchise, because it is science-fantasy and not science fiction, and the Force is a pseudo-religion.

  • 03:10 PM - Celebrim quoted ddaley in post The Best Movie About RPGs in 2018 (So Far)
    This is a little ridiculous. Lots of movies have spell casting. Did you see the Harry Potter movies? Is the problem due to the fact that some of the spell casters may be religious? The problem is that someone might be comfortable with obviously silly spellcasting using Canis Latinicus probably won't be comfortable with a character that cast spells by appealing to some spiritual power, especially if dressed in some sort of religious garb. Sure, there are always going to be some people that think Halloween is Satanic, but the closer you get to looking like religion, the more it looks like occult ritual, and the more people you make uncomfortable.

Agreed, and "quite annoying" is putting it politely. Scrolling up and down to read the text in it's entirety is... well, quite annoying :) *edit* And, I'm really looking forward to the new Runequest. I remember how "fiddly" and time consuming the combat seemed like compared to the original D&D. Looking back - it seems simple compared to many other games. Still Runequest and Elric / Stormbringer were among my favorite games back in the day. Along with D&D and Traveller of course.

Very much agreed! @Morrus. just a clarification, Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40,000 are not the same brand. It might seem like splitting hairs, but it would be beneficial for newcomers to either IP to not become confused.

  • 06:46 PM - Dire Bare quoted ddaley in post News Digest: WotC Releases, M:TG Harassment, Epic Lawsuit, Munchkin Games, and more!
    The music/entertainment industry sued lots of minors. Did you complain about that? Yes. That was a dark time. The music studios (as an industry) are evil incarnate, both to music fans and to musicians. The fact that Epic gave the kid a chance to take down his videos, and instead he doubled down, changes things a bit (for me). I don't know all the details, but it still bothers me that a 14-year-old is being sued. Was there an attempt to work things out with his parents before the lawsuit was filed? I hope so, as that would seem to me to be the next step . . . and if they failed to curb his behavior, then a lawsuit against the parents would be legit (for me).
