    I have played a lot of Shadowrun in my day. And I'd say.. go either 2nd edition or 5th. Do not bother with 3 or 4. If you want a bit of retro-future - what the past thought future technology would be like, go with 2nd. If you want a game that does a nod to understanding wireless technology, go with 5th, but be ready for people to be so paranoid that they won't use the technology in question,...

    Which would make it two or three times better than the previous FF movies, so... win? We would have the point that it is more a family of siblings/peers, rather than strict parent/child, so it can be a little different.

    Well, families are still a thing, right? So, the Fantastic Four still works, today. The problem with FF movies has not been that "they don't work". It has been that Fox does not, at its core, understand superheroes, at least of the Marvel variety. They have fundamentally missed what is most important to the superhero properties they touch. For the Fantastic Four, that is about family. ...

    Dude. We have only a few rules around here - one of them being that you can't go around blatantly insulting people or questioning their personal character over a difference of opinion about game rules. Or maybe you are trying to be funny? If so... folks can't tell. Either way - you should stick to being respectful.

    The big stuff: 1) 20 con, so more hp, on top of more hp! 2) Slightly higher crit modifier 3) +2 more attack, and one extra attack every round. 4) The big one....heals 10 damage every round once at half. That is by far the biggest factor I'm sure. I would also assume that he saves his second wind until much later to milk this advantage. 5) One more action surge.

    It means a lot of rerolls and shifting all of the players and monsters, either on cards or in your head. Way more complicated every round as opposed to just "hey your down, remember you lose your next turn no matter what".

    To me the two simplest rules to fix this: 1) a penalty when falling unconscious. That way you always take some pain. 2) a person who falls unconscious always loses their next turn, no matter when healed. This means initiative is less relevant. Right now if I drop and the healer goes before my next turn, Iím barely inconvenienced. But if I lose my turn regardless of when Iím healed, itís a...

    I don't think there's anything fundamental, here - I'm talking more about categorizing, and setting expectations. I just think about it, and realize there are parts of play where the GM is acting more like a judge/referee, and parts of play where the GM is acting more like an author. The former I'd call adjudication, the latter, not. There's connotations to "adjudication" that I don't think...

In FATE-based games, if you say, "I attack" in physical combat, all you get is a very basic roll of your skill, which in general isn't so high as you'll be able to down anything other than a mook. ...

When the GM is just deciding a result, for their own reasons unrelated to the rules of the game - that's not adjudicating.

    I think this would be a fun little experiment series. 5e's bounded accuracy has made it where high level characters, while strong, are supposed to be toppled by the mob. Numbers mean more than level in 5e. So lets see how well that plays out in practice. In this series, we will take a pretty high level character (11th), and see how well they do against a mob of their lesser (1st level )...

If the intended action in a game is "kill things and take their stuff" then yes, your game needs a combat...

    Why do you need rules for one, but not the other? GMs are capable of just saying, "Yes, this social interaction plays out in this manner, with these effects," and do so fairly, but they are somehow incapable of doing so with combat? They can't take a player's description of physical and magical actions, and just run with that like they can social interaction? That, really, is kind of...

    One option missed in the OP is "Ineffable: The exact nature of the gods is not known, or undetermined. Divine magic happens, but nobody has proof of why or how." This is how most of my games run - unless or until the actual nature of divine magic impact play (so, it becomes mechanically- or plot-relevant), then I don't bother to specify. This allows for more belief systems in the world.

    D&D Beyond has provided yet another of it's data dumps of 12 million characters -- this time telling us character alignments are most popular in D&D. Chaotic Good wins, followed by my least favourite as a DM, Chaotic Neutral. Chaotic Evil is the least popular. The developer does say that this does not count the percentage of characters with no alignment selected. You can see the...

    You say that as if humans *have* an identifiable "natural state" - we are a tribal, social species and an extremely extended infant period compared to other animals. We, more than any other creature on the planet, are focused on *learned* behavior, not inborn, "natural" behavior. What is natural for us is to try out a large number of different behaviors, and see what works. I will push back...

    The game's rules are certainly largely about combat. The *could* have rules that were as rich for dealing with social/political action, or other activity, but they don't. If we hand players a hammer, we should expect them to treat problems like nails... There are games that do better. The CORTEX+ based Leverage game, for example, does include combat. But that is only one out of five major...

    I think there was an archiving effort here, and possibly elsewhere? Donít know how much it got. I have no idea where they would be. Maybe Morrus knows where the D&D Forum archive are, if they are here.

  • 12:20 AM - Hussar mentioned Morrus in post Chaotic Good Is The Most Popular Alignment!
    I gotta agree with Morrus on the whole CN thing. Thing is, most people, really, are lawful by D&D standards. They follow rules, they work (reasonably well) in groups every day and generally aren't out there to stir things up. Funny thing is, I think most players choose CN because they don't want to allow the DM to have any hooks into their behavior. It's really a shame that 5e ejected "unaligned" because, frankly, I think that's what most folks mean when they say CN. Sorry, but, if your chaotic neutral character is 100% responsible and trustworthy, he's not actually CN.

  • 05:08 PM - lowkey13 mentioned Morrus in post Let's Talk About THAC0
    THAC0 is clearly preferable to BAB, for two reasons. One, it sounds cooler, and closer to the action of hitting. THAC0. It's an aptonym. Second, it is easier. As Morrus has repeatedly explained to the rest of you, addition is easier. With THACO, you are always adding. With BAB, you have to constantly subtract negative numbers. So NOT ONLY do you have to use subtraction (OH NOES!), you ALSO have to subtract negative numbers. I swear, if I ever have to subtract the negative of the proficiency again .... Stop bowing to the tyranny of math.

    Any ETA on when this will be fixed?...I don't want to be seen as blatantly abusing anything. Is there alternative method I can use to report posts in the mean time? No timetable as yet, AFAIK. Perhaps Morrus could make a glitch announcement and ask that reports be PMed to The Mod Squad?* https://www.memorabletv.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/the-mod-squad.jpg Or, for those unconcerned with anonymous reporting, posting it in Meta? * not pictured: any actual ENWorld Mods.

    Morrus Umbran darjr As I noted above, Iíve personally encountered two blacked out posts by spammers (whom I subsequently banned). The text wasnít merely color matched to the back, because the reported text didnít show even when I quoted it to check. What had been there was simply gone. Something odd is going on.

  • 04:58 AM - Maxperson mentioned Morrus in post Is RPGing a *literary* endeavour?
    That they are dancing is more about content than description. The thing that makes the scene more interesting is that the kobolds are dancing for some reason, not how the GM describes the dance It's not, or at least it's not entirely content. Dancing is a description of what the kobolds are doing up on the hill. Dancing is also content. This brings me back(again) to the point I made pages ago. Both qualitative description AND content are both necessary to make an interesting scene. One without the other is going to be dull. Also not sure why my posts keep including that quote I think it has something to do with multiquoting. Zardnaar was driving Morrus crazy with it in a thread recently. Maybe one of them could help you figure out how to stop quoting it.

    Same as Morrus , a close vote. Many fond memories of 2E, but 3E coming along and "modernizing" things we had houseruled for 2E anyway, makes it my favorite. At least at the beginning.

The site lists the dice and miscellany separate from this: The Essentials Kit. So maybe a new revised version of the starter set, but not Eberron specific it seems. Well, the name to me suggests maybe more of a neo-Expert Set: not an intro product, but a second product for folks who bought the Starter Set and want more. Something for folks with no FLGS, who buy their Magic & DnD stuff at Target or whatnot. Morrus more grist for the mill.
  • 05:12 PM - Parmandur mentioned Morrus in post New D&D Adventure Reveal On 17th May at 'The Descent'
    So looks like we were spot on with the Adventure book. "Baldur's Gate: Descent Into Avernus" https://www.renaud-bray.com/Livres_Produit.aspx?id=2843417&def=Dungeons+%26+Dragons+Baldur%27s+Gate%3A+Descent+Into+Avernus+Hardcover+Book+(D%26D+Adventure)%2CCOLLECTIF%2C9780786966769 One correct. 3 more to go. Shout out to Parmandur for being on the Baldurs Gate connection before anyone! Boom! They just kept talking about Baldur's Gate, and getting way too detailed. Interestign that the name pattern matches "Waterdeep: Dragon Heist." Morrus might warrant a new story for your front page.

    And Tazawa takes the lead! There's only 10 hours remaining, and most online prediction tools are telling us that Mort and Zardnaar are in the best position to win. (My spreadsheet, on the other hand, is stubbornly suggesting either Mistwell or Morrus for the win.) Critters are crazy, though...we likely won't know for sure until after tonight's show.

  • 08:41 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted Morrus in post Geekdom Takes a Bow
    Can't argue there. They're both capable of being witty and laugh-so-hard-you-cry funny. "The Germans" is possibly the funniest television episode in existence. Blackadder is second only to Fawlty Towers. There is literally nothing even close to being as funny as those two things.
  • 08:19 PM - Dannyalcatraz quoted Morrus in post Geekdom Takes a Bow
    Blackadder is second only to Fawlty Towers. There is literally nothing even close to being as funny as those two things. I might flip those, but I loved both. Theyíd both be in my top BritCom list, but they wouldnít be in the top 2 slots. Monte Python is my #1, for many reasons- it was my gateway drug into British comedy, for instance. Saw The Holy Grail on one of its first US broadcastings, before I found D&D.
  • 05:48 PM - Umbran quoted Morrus in post Geekdom Takes a Bow
    None of them are any Blackadder. Rowan Atkison is brilliant... but I can only take him in small doses before his style begins to wear on me. I definitely get more full-on guffaws and "hit the pause button because I am laughing too hard to pay attention to the show" from these latter programs, I'm afraid. But then again, I'm not British. And sure as heck comedy is context-dependent. I probably don't have the cultural referents to really *get* Blackadder.

  • 11:36 PM - Umbran quoted Morrus in post Geekdom Takes a Bow
    I understand that some people feel that way about the show. I don't share that feeling, though. To loop back, Morrus, you asked, "Why shouldnít geeks be in the same mainstream sitcoms as everybody else?" So, now we see some reasons. You haven't been subjected to geek-shaming, so no, you wouldn't share the feeling. Shows that lean too hard on sexist or racist tropes are understood to be problematic by folks who are not usually subject to racism or sexism. This show, which leaned on other traditionally negative tropes for its jokes... should also be understood as problematic, no? Maybe not as egregious, but still an issue.
  • 11:33 PM - Henry quoted Morrus in post Geekdom Takes a Bow
    No. I was definitely a geek, and hung around with my geek friends, but there was no bullying. I get that other people have different experiences. For me, quite a lot actually, until about my senior year in high school. My defense was making friends with other kids who the bullies were scared of. :) In particular, one dudeís homophobic slur was his favorite word to use against me and basically anyone he didnít like. Donít know if he ever actually used it against a gay person or not, but my liking D&D and being good at my classes were all the excuse he needed every time he threatened to beat me up. Now, 20-odd years later I have a lot of perspective and see it for the childishness it was - in comparison, nerd-jokes and insults are pretty mild compared to people in this world with real problems.
  • 04:40 PM - Umbran quoted Morrus in post Geekdom Takes a Bow
    I understand that some people feel that way about the show. I don't share that feeling, though. So, a possibly relevant question (for anyone, really) that is somewhat personal so you don't need to answer it publicly, but bears consideration: Were you, as a kid, bullied for having some of the personality traits seen in the show's main characters? Did you get (socially) pushed around or demeaned for being a geek/nerd?
  • 06:22 AM - Dire Bare quoted Morrus in post Hidden
  • 04:45 AM - Henry quoted Morrus in post Geekdom Takes a Bow
    TBBT is a sitcom. Sitcoms are generally the same, just the characters change. There have been sitcoms featuring wartime medics, upper class toffs, pretty people in New York, and everything in between. The characters are always the butt of the joke. This time it was scientists. The fact that geeks finding scientists in the same mainstream sitcoms as everybody else gets them upset kinda reinforces the ďothernessĒ of them. Why shouldnít geeks be in the same mainstream sitcoms as everybody else? I donít see middle class British dentists getting upset because of a sitcom. Iíve never understood the triggering nature of TBBT with some individuals; I self-identify as a geek/nerd and have in public for close to twenty years now; my love of computing, comic books, RPGs, and pop sci-if has never been in question even when old CEOs and CFOs in business suits would poke fun at me while prattling about their weekend golf games, the RBIs of Pete Rose or A-Rod, and how the blacktop and tight turns...
  • 03:24 AM - Umbran quoted Morrus in post Geekdom Takes a Bow
    I donít see middle class British dentists getting upset because of a sitcom. There are differences, though. The issue at hand isn't that they are "scientists". It is that they are people matching geek stereotypes. They aren't the butt of the jokes for being scientists - they are being the butt of jokes because of their stereotypical behaviors - behaviors for which geeks have traditionally already been made fun of for having. You are taking a subculture that has been traditionally marginalized, and making fun of the things for which they were marginalized.

    What he was probably thinking is defending himself intelligently from someone accusing him of being racist. You might dislike the phrase "geek blackphace", i must admit it's not to my taste either, but that's not a valid reason to ban the user from the thread in my opinion. The other one is an example of how vicious and unfair a baseless allegation can be.

  • 05:32 PM - Draegn quoted Morrus in post New survey from WotC about boxed sets
    They do that for two reasons: 1) itís more visible on the store shelf 2) you can put your own stuff in it too From a psychological point of view, a box that is not full can cause people to feel they are not getting their money's worth. To this end one local shop will not stock box sets, for, the books out sell the boxes. A box set has to be special ordered. From the point of view of one's wallet, a larger box weighs more and thus shipping costs are increased. I rather have my shelves be neat and tidy, unlike my brothers's whose shelving looks like a jenga game.

  • 06:28 PM - doctorbadwolf quoted Morrus in post Chaotic Good Is The Most Popular Alignment!
    In my experience Chaotic Neutral is the evilest evil but your DM said you weren't allowed to be evil. I usually ban it in my games, as well as evil, unless I'm deliberately accommodating evil characters. I've rarely ever seen the "evil" side of CN, and only ever from players that were disruptive no matter what they played. The CN characters I've seen have tended to just be motivated by people and what they want in life, without directly thinking or caring much about broad morality or cosmic scales. Not surprise. CB is flexible morality. You wanna be good, but still able to kill that dude you do not like. Sometimes it's that. Usually it's a morality that is based on something like "hurting people for selfish reasons is bad, as has to be opposed", rather than "XYZ specific actions are Evil". That is, violence isn't good or evil, the results of violence are good or evil. If the result of me killing the dragon is that it stops killing villagers because they can't afford to bring it as many co...

    i misspoke. I meant to say Chaotic Neutral. Ahh, I see. Yeah, thatís probably the most likely non-evil alignment to get banned, but I think DMs disallowing CN is still fairly uncommon.
