  • 07:36 PM - Flareanthia mentioned Twiggly the Gnome in post Looking for Lore - Tritons race
    ...en there. Tritons would know of the plane of water, probably, but have lived in the sea their whole lives. Heck, there is a whole part of volo's guide talking about how they don't know anything of the surface, I imagine this would also mean they don't know much of creatures from the surface or sea creatures that never go too deep? 'XD I mean I can fluff some stuff as pertaining to their culture, I've looked up a WHOLE load of animal facts for how Tritons would function (certain frogs have a way to keep themselves from freezing and breathe underwater through their skin, it makes sense as to why Tritons are resistant to cold and why they can breathe on both land AND in water!) but I was hoping to find out what the writers for D&D intended for the race of Tritons. But heck, if nothing else seems to be cropping up, I guess I'll just HAVE to look into the water plane for enemies and history! There is some more information on the plane of water than there is on Tritons I'd wager. :D @Twiggly the Gnome really?? I shall be checking that out then also!! :D

Doing so either allows all members of the group to recover hit points equivalent to the Warlordís Wisdom or Charisma modifier times Ĺ the allies level (minimum of 1), or free all members of the group from non-magical fear (the Frightened condition), or reduce any effects due to exhaustion by one level. The group must be within hearing range of the Warlord, and only affects members not at 0 hit points.

    @Twiggly the Gnome, are you still with us? The Carroll House As Terry enters the bathroom, the room seems to spin and an extreme sensation of vertigo hits him. For a moment, everything around him is replaced by an almost medieval castle, the bathroom replaced by a washroom with curtains surrounding a bathtub with a hand-pumped water spout and buckets nearby. A woman's silhouette can be seen in the tub behind the curtains in the bathtub. A voice, a different, younger voice says, "Aldavran, is that you? Aldavran stop playing around." Then the moment passes. He is back in his room and his bathroom. Miriam is reading through the diary when a particular entry stands out due to being written in large letters with drawings of dragons breathing fire on people who must be the other Miriam's mother and nana. I hate my life! I hate my nana! I hate my mother! I want them to go away forever! Or, better yet, I want to go away forever. To Narnia or Hogwarts or anywhere but here. Somewhere where I can...

    @Twiggly the Gnome, I'm going to go ahead and get the IC thread started with dad being out getting lunch for everyone. As soon as you get your character in the RG, we'll have dad get home with the grub. :D mips42, Uncle Mark will be arriving late to the move-in party (i.e. when you get your character in to the RG).

    Hope you guys get out of the storm soon! :) Which reminds me, @Fenris, @Queenie, I'm kinda open to ideas here on where Terry stands with Bella, her boyfriend Brad and/or them going out together. ^_^ there are lots of directions we can take it and I'm having trouble picking a fave to suggest. EDIT: almost Forgot the parents ^_^ Twiggly the Gnome, Skarsgard, I do imagine that there might be a little tension between Terry and his folks, his football scholarship was revoked and he was caught vandalizing campus property with his friends (still gotta figure out what exactly happened...) his future and his career in sports is put into question. Your thoughts?

  • 09:40 AM - pemerton mentioned Twiggly the Gnome in post L&L: Subclasses
    There could be for example a Rogue's Assassin scheme, but why not also a Monk's Ninja monastic tradition?I think this is what Twiggly the Gnome has in mind. The issue is, as the rules/communication currenlty stands, this is not what we are getting. instead we are looking at non-additive paths to the concept.For multiple paths to be work they have to be additive but independent - so if you take only one, you have a viable character element, but if you take all of them, you get a viable (if super-focused) character rather than a whole lot of mechanically conflicting redundancy. Am I right in thinking that in an earlier package there were issues with a fighter getting essentially redundant reaction defences from Feats and Subclass? If so, that's the sort of thing that needs to be fixed.

    An Eberron hardcover paired with a Eberron card set for Magic would be fun! If it is another Magic setting, my hope would be for Theros. I wish for a Kamigawa book, I know it isn't happening but still... If it can be any setting I wish for Greyhawk. Big Brother and his Newspeak project would be jealous of what autocorrect can accomplish with far less brainpower. That's why I have it turned off. I don't trust autocorrect.

  • 11:08 PM - ValdDrakul quoted Twiggly the Gnome in post Looking for a god/goddess of wealth and greed
    Either Kol Korran or The Keeper, depending on whether you want the npc cleric to operate openly in polite society or not. His story is he runs a orphanage, but is secretly selling kids off as servants,cheap labor or...other things. His public face is one of a kind, loving man, but in truth everything he does is for profit.

  • 08:13 AM - CapnZapp quoted Twiggly the Gnome in post Update to Season 8 Rules
    It makes a certain amount of sense. They probably want to encourage people to testdrive the numerous race and subrace options in the WGtE.Like how Magic always focuses on the latest expansions..?

  • 09:54 PM - Tony Vargas quoted Twiggly the Gnome in post 6e? Why?
    Yeah, my hunch is they are shooting for keeping this version alive for a decade, and releasing a "Gold Edition" for the game's 50th anniversary. Plausible. I think, at this point, it's clear that D&D doesn't need change or improvement for its own sake, it needs stability for the sake of the brand. I'd expect future editions to be like special editions of Monopoly: same game, but with cosmetic changes and details to fit a theme. A 50th anniversary edition might be like that, essentially the same as 5e, maybe with some extra effort to evoke the early game...

  • 07:51 PM - Ancalagon quoted Twiggly the Gnome in post New D&D Survey
    Neat! I'm not that big into B/X clones, but this looks like a good source to idea mine from. It's so idea-rich that it's effectively system agnostic. The main conversion job is the monsters stats, but the rest is 95% ideas.

    Not sure how to answer here. I'd love to see some East Asian inspired fantasy, but feudal Japan has been done to death. I know, right? This *might* interest you.... https://noisms-games.squarespace.com/creations/yoon-suin-the-purple-land

  • 06:32 PM - Quickleaf quoted Twiggly the Gnome in post The Adventure of Many Settings?
    Quickleaf That's a really cool take on presenting the adventure, much more involved than the usual "if in this world, place it here..." kind if advice. I really dig it. My only concern is if you'd be breaking some kind of rule by mentioning the other setting so specifically. Is that allowed on the DMs Guild? Good point! I just emailed Matt McElroy, community content manager at DMs Guild, with a question about it. I'd assumed it was in keeping with the spirit of WotC's current brand approach and supports people picking up classic D&D material on OneBookshelf's sites, so it'd be a win-win. But it does involve trademarked names. I was thinking Bel Shalor - the Shadow in the Flame http://eberron.wikia.com/wiki/Bel_Shalor I had no idea! That's perfect! And I thought I was just riffing off the Prince of Persia with the name!

  • 09:15 PM - Jester David quoted Twiggly the Gnome in post Are You Excited about Tomb of Annihilation?
    I depends on how easy it is to adapt for use in an Eberron game. On the face of it, it seems like you could set it in the Stormwreck Bay region of Khorvair, and replace Acererak with Erandis Vol. We'll see. :erm: Xen’drik could also work. And no reason Acererak couldn't also have gone to that world.

    I think what he meant is that outside of domain level play and the role of the awnsheghlien, Aebrynis is a pretty bog standard fantasy world. Exactly! Thx Sent from my C6603 using EN World mobile app

    A mechanical update for Eberron. Then throw it open to DM'sGuild, so Keith Baker can write that undersea kingdoms book. :) Yes! I'd also like to see an update for Dragonlance, and let Weiss write the revised chronicles she wants to write.

  • 03:32 AM - Cyvris quoted Twiggly the Gnome in post New Warlock Pacts: What are your concepts?
    We have a book pact with the Tomelock, how about filling out the triad with Bell and Candle? I'd been toying with a "Candle" Pact that gets some sort of alterable "burst" since well...fire. Haven't though of much beyond that though. In terms of actual mechanics, I wrote this up taking insperation from the 4e Warlock's "Shadow Step" ability. I'm thinking there would be invocations that make it so you actually gain "concealment" to make stealth checks and can spread it to one ally in 5ft. Pact of the Mantle Your patron bestows upon you the garb of some of their most trusted followers. For the Fey, this might take the form of a shimmering, grey cloak which causes enemiesí eyes to slip from you. The Great Old One cuts a patch out a patch of starless sky to wrap you in, while an Infernal lord gifs you the skin of an demon skilled in infiltration. As long as you are wearing the mantle your patron gifted you, during your turn, if you move 15 or more feet away from where you started your turn your form be...

  • 09:33 PM - MechaTarrasque quoted Twiggly the Gnome in post D&D Fluff Wars: 4e vs 5e
    I hope they keep the Noble Eladrins in the feywild, and give their place in the celestial hierarchy to the Asuras. The DMG says there are elves that are celestials living in Arborea (and dwarves who are celestials in Arcadia). I find it a little anticlimactic to have the PC's go to all the effort to get to the Outer Planes and fight...elves. [Of course, that was the way it was with Bytopia and gnomes forever and in 5e with orcs/goblinoids and Chernoggar (and in Archeron before 4e).] Still, like my earlier suggestion about deity-specific templates for angels, making plane-specific NPC classes would go along way to add some spice to that situation. I would also suggest plane-linked PC subclasses, but I think that would cause some people's heads to explode.....

  • 09:31 PM - Blue quoted Twiggly the Gnome in post Whatever "lore" is, it isn't "rules."
    L I guess it depends what you mean by "core construct". Xen'drik is an important background element for many of the things in Eberron, but one can run a perfectly reasonable Eberron game with the PCs never setting foot on that continent. Although, I guess I'm not really a purist, since my Eberron has no Halflings in it. :) There's a difference between "we never explored Xen'drik" and "it categorically doesn't exist".

  • 04:07 AM - MechaPilot quoted Twiggly the Gnome in post What's in YOUR Unearthed Arcana?
    I voted "They're fine". The only "must have" thing from these weekly UA's for me has been the Forge domain. Giving Clerics of those gods the Knowledge domain was kludgy as hell. For similar reasons I would have liked to have seen a Love/Passion domain. I'm working on a love domain for my homebrew setting. As I see it, the really tricky part is how to handle a love spell or inspire love ability without removing player agency if they get whammied by it. For my part, this was my solution. The love spell is triangular in nature; the caster picks two targets, a primary target and a secondary target. The spell causes the primary target to develop feelings of love for the secondary target. I have denoted three levels of "feelings of love:" 1) romantic love 2) familial or platonic love for a very close friend 3) love for a very dear pet Dividing it in this manner allows players to avoid their characters being forced into romances by allowing them to elect #2 instead of #1. Including category #3 also pr...
