    Their one big twist is that you can change classes, but not every game in the series even does that. If you look at IV, for example, it could easily have been branded as a D&D game. "Easily" might be a bit of a stretch. Also, that game is about 25 years old. As Valetudo stated, it's hardly representative of their current work given how the Final Fantasy franchise has evolved. The D&D license would be like a creative straight jacket on the series. FWIW, I loved the 8-bit and 16-bit titles but wasn't a fan of most of the stuff that came after. Regardless, while they are fond memories, I wouldn't want to replay that style of game.

    The Drizzles books have been subpar for guite awhile now. R.A. Needs to learn how to move on, its the killer of alot of writers quality. Ive heard he's got this publishing contract that he will never let go of; its pretty much the niche he's carved for himself, he will probably be writing Drizzt novels until he dies, and it'll be the only thing he'll be remembered for as a writer; at least he's churning novels out... still waiting for another writer to finish The Winds of Winter ;-) I think its smart that Wizards is focusing on its game and not novels; one reason that FR as a setting is so glutted is its novels crowding the world with meta-plot; I prefer a setting where the DM has full creative control.

    So your saying the threads of peeps debting whether it works with shields or just overrides them is just silly? I think it definately could have been written better. It really only works with Capn Zapp's "lazy fairies" version.

People argue over a lot of things, even if the meaning is 100% clear. (Not saying that this is 100% clear, but the point remains.) In the case of Barkskin, it seems clear to me. Is your AC less than 16 (including shield and other bonuses) before the spell is cast? If so, your new AC for the duration of the spell is 16. If not, keep your existing AC.

    So your saying the threads of peeps debting whether it works with shields or just overrides them is just silly? I think it definately could have been written better. Yes. Your AC cannot be less than 16. It is as simple and straightforward as it gets. It's actually a great example of how, no matter how well written/simple the rule, people are going to be confused and/or twist it around to try to abuse it.

    I really wish they would rewrite barkskin to act as heavy armor. I homebrew it that way but still, it has to be one of the worst written spells. It's one of the most straightforward and succinctly written spells. It's just underpowered for non-beast forms. Perfectly good for buffing the AC of a bear though.

    Are you talking about beta or the full release? Kingmaker looks interesting, but Im worried its gonna be a bugfest.Full release, they are constantly patching it up so it is definitely getting better. It is playable now, however, if want it to be less buggy then give it a few weeks.

    CD project also gets money from its goverment. And as good of a game witcher3 was, the actual combat was not that good. I know heresy but true. For Action fantasy, the only game I enjoyed the combat more has been the Diablo series. Witcher 3 is VERY good in comparison. It flows very well, is fun, and you actually feel like you are in combat unlike many other Action RPG titles. Most Action Fantasy RPGs really stink in the combat area. They just are really horrible. Sci-Fi RPGs typically are much better (but many of those take a handle from Mass Effect and others where it's a combination of a TPS or FPS and an RPG).

But as far as the game goes, that may actually be a strength. too complex combat (at least initially) is going to gate some people right out of the game before they have the chance to get hooked. At least that's what happen to me in the first Witcher.

  • 02:37 PM - Eltab quoted Valetudo in post DISCUSSION: Have you ever had to boot somebody from a game?
    Another problem can be the "Girlfriend/Boyfriend". In my old Tiamat group, one player invited his girlfriend, who took a legit interest in the game. When he began to treat her badly, the general opinion around the table was that we should boot him before he could drive her away. In the event, they broke up and both stopped attending.

    Another problem can be the "Girlfriend/Boyfriend". They can really mess a game up and I have ejected a few players over that one. Yeah, I'm not fond of having couples in the group. Often a recipe for disaster.

    Honestly, my only complaint about ravnica is that its alot like planescape, atleast on the surface. But Im willing to give it a look when it is released. Just remember, you dont have to use it the way they wrote it. Most of their settings are in need of personal touches. The governing structure is similar to Planescape, but that is almost all. As I understand it most people on Ravnica don't know there are other planes (at least until now maybe), it's not a plane hot spot (that role tended to be Dominaria). In fact inspire of it's size and cosmopolitan outlook and diversity, I think most Sigilans would consider Ravnica a backwater, even compared to say Toril or Krynn, perhaps only rescently discovered in game time line wise.

I can't remember if I said this to you or someone else in another thread (if it was you I apologize) but they are similar ... in the same way pizza and apple pie are similar. They both are circular food that is baked, with a wheat based crust, sauce and toppings, and that is served in slices. I'm certainly no expert in either, but from what I do know, I think that saying that they are as similar as pie and pizza is a good assessment :D I'm looking forward to it, although the odds of me actually *running* it is low.

Just remember, you dont have to use it the way they wrote it. Most of their settings are in need of personal touches. To be honest, Ravnica is only like Planescape if you think "Planescape = Sigil". That's the only thing it has in common with the Planescape setting. Now, if it were Dominaria, which has been canonically described as "The Nexus of the (MtG) Multiverse", then you might have a reason to feel that way. Ravnica is more like Sharn or Waterdeep than anything. The only thing it has remotely in common with Sigil is that it doesn't adhere to Gygaxian humanocentrism, so it has a large, diverse array of races, ranging from giants, ogres, trolls and cyclopes, to ghosts, "angels" and "demons" (which are NOT like the outsiders of D&D), to gorgons, elephant-folk, lizardfolk, centaurs, minotaurs and other, weirder things.

  • 05:27 PM - billd91 quoted Valetudo in post Why I feel so abysmally let down by the "Ravnica" news...
    Magic sales have dipped slightly and dnd sales have risen. Just my guess but they are trying to peanutbutter and chocolate the two brands. Will it work? Who knows, dnd nerds can be stubborn sometimes about settings. The real question is - since WotC has owned TSR's IP since the late 1990s, "Why haven't they done this sooner?" That we're 20 years on, I'm surprised it has taken this long do do this in such a substantial way.
  • 11:23 AM - Li Shenron quoted Valetudo in post Here comes "Chaotic Wacky" ......again.
    This is an easy answer. Stop using alignment. I don't think this is always the solution, but it could go a long way. I say it's not always the solution because it's definitely possible that a player would anyway roleplay his PC in a disruptive way even without alignment. But at the same time, there are certainly players who get carried away by a label on their character sheet that says "chaotic" or "evil", and removing the label can help.

    I always saw it as a final fantasy rippoff myself. But hey there areFF anime so maybe we are both right. Or both wrong. :p

  • 11:45 PM - unknowable quoted Valetudo in post Why everyone think that Battlemaster is better than Samurai?
    Most the fighter subclasses are pretty close on the balance factor in actual play. Even the champ is close behind despite the complaing. Im not so sure about the purple dragon though. But I wouldnt worry about which ones better or stronger. Just play the one you like. Purple dragon is pretty awful. For a support fighter it offers little in the way of support. Still very playable though, the core fighter is a strong combat class.

    yeah thats true but youtube has reset the video on more than one occasion on me, and its a pain to find where i left off because i am usually doing other things when i watch the episodes. Its actually quite easy to split the episode into two or even more parts. Sure, if you needed to go back to the exact right spot. But finding the fifteen-minute break in the middle of the video is not arduous.
