    I say, slightly in jest, "I search the Duke's desk for a huge ancient red dragon...." Less in jest, I ask - what are we more interested in seeing - the players getting exactly what they ask for, or the players getting what they overall want? Because they are not omniscient, and what they ask for may not actually be what they wanted, needed, or could best use. There is a demonstrable...

    How does a pre-industrial society hang together with super-powerful individuals and groups wandering the land at will, especially as these people rocket up in personal power in just a few years?

    I know review copies have been sent out to various people (ours went to Ben, our Pathfinder columnist) but the reviews are embargoed until Aug 1st. And, of course, there’s the 3PPs, but they’re not even allowed to tell you who they are until then! :)

    The last game I ran, I did have the common problem - the rogue, with better Initiative, similar AC, and high damage from sneak attack, left the party paladin feeling a tad... unimportant in combat. Next D&D game I run, I may simply remove the Dex modifier from damage from Finesse. I am not sure it needs whole fighting styles and such to then make up for it.

    Yeah, but I think you're treating the discussion as if folks are choosing their wordign along strict logical lines, when that behavior is not terribly common. "Any DM (OSR or not)..." may not be strictly true. Though, it may be - they may *see* the logic, but reject it. But whatever the case, in spending your time refuting the strict statement, you miss the actual point that perhaps lots...

    Well, it isn't like the pantheon and cultural structure are cleanly separable. The gods support particular social structures. And, in our fantasy worlds, the gods have a say in things - if a god gives spell power to elvish worshippers/clerics, and does not give power to non-elves, that's going to reinforce religion being a racial characteristic. Um... we have the phrase lingua franca...

    Or, the also not-uncommon "start at 3rd level". Note that "a half-dozen people before you suggested X" does not actually mean that those half-dozen are representative. Using posts here for that is like using self-selected poll data - it does not represent what portion of people actually feel that way, as much as how strongly this small number of people feel about the point.

    With respect, this doesn't tell us anything until you also do a measure of how fast PCs are expected to *lose* hit points. If AD&D monsters generally did less damage, or an AD&D party dealt with far fewer monsters in a day, yes, it could be moot.

    It matters to my play experience. It probably impacts the choices I make in play. So, by that measure, it makes a difference in the campaign. Also, as a GM, I take the player choices to be indicative of things they want to see. If you play a gnome, we're probably going to see a lot more gnome culture and social role in the game than if nobody chose to play a gnome. That probably means...

    There are almost no original IPs... in movies. In print (novels and comic books, for example) there's loads of new stuff. It is far, far cheaper to produce a novel or comic book run than it is to produce a movie, so it will often make far more sense to take something that's at least been tried out in the public arena before you spend $75 million and more on a movie.

    The . . . like, metaphysical explanation I think I had in my head was that in the New World Order you can teleport anywhere you've been, and since the box is tied to Risuri's land due to its connection to the Fey Titans, Heid basically thought really hard at it, until he believed that he *was* the box, and he-as-box willed him-as-box-self to teleport back to Risur, because it was the only way to...

    We're talking about how we pretend to be elves, Celebrim. Expect depth to match the topic. Consider it less an observation of the nature of love, and more an observation of the nature of people, and it will probably be more functional for you.

    I think we get a sense of it, at least. So, here's the difference - you define viability in terms of "pulling weight", doing damage, and such. And I can accept that as something that can be important enough to a player to be a deal-breaker. Most of the time, I figure even-handedness in spreading around effectiveness is a useful thing for a game's design. But, my personal definition of...

    In a very practical sense, nothing that isn't D&D has really caught on. What was the statistic Morrus gave - 40 million people play D&D? By comparison to that, everything else is just an corner experiment, isn't it? Market realities have so much say in the success of a line that I don't think we can say market success speaks to the whether the mechanical design is flawed in concept all that...

  • 11:02 AM - Li Shenron mentioned Morrus in post PbP games: what works and what doesn't?
    Oh and I have a suggestion for Morrus too... try to see if there is a possibility for adding a forum functionality by which a forum member can subscribe to a thread and get notifications when someone else replies to the thread. AFAIK this is not how it works at the moment, you get notifications only if you receive a PM, mention or XP. Having notifications on subscribed threads would greatly help a PbP player know when a game has progressed, and reach the thread in a couple of clicks rather than having to find it in the subforums.

    Morrus: perhaps it would be good to update your instructions for this Meta subforum to include "please tag me for a speedier response"? ☺ I believe I speak for most of us when I say I expected the mod team to actively monitor the entire Meta forum; on most forums it's sole purpose (whatever it's name) is to contact the staff.

    ...te, caring etc then men" so if a woman speaks up "loudly", she's acting against her role. I know that this holds true more in face-to-face environments, whereas online debates are often no more than mere black-on-white (or inversed) text. Still she identified as a woman. And from what I read, Afrodyte is done with playing the "nice little woman". She's (rightfully) upset about the fact that there are many victim-blaming posts or posts filled with micro-misogyny in this thread that were not being called out while her arguments were dissected. She's also under the impression that male-identifying posters are being less challenged and have it far easier being listened to. And I understand her. Because being a woman who's active online, who has a mind of her own and who gets vocal from time to time can be hard. That being said, I still think that ENWorld is one of the best places to discuss my/our hobby, including systemic problems in our community. And I'm really thankful for Morrus and the other mods to keep it this civil. (Because, honestly, other, more general gaming forums oftentimes look as if they're the little brethren of /b )

  • 08:19 PM - RedJenOSU mentioned Morrus in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    So I want to say I am sorry for the stuff I am missing and I want to do better. I don’t do cons but since the problem is everywhere I need to step up and do better in general. In general women are very willing to give individual men several chances to get it right so long as they are trying to move in a positive direction. Personally, I'll excuse any first offense that is done without malice (doing something on purpose to push buttons is not without malice in my book). I'll even accept slip-ups if you keep trying to do better. We're all human (I didn't see any AI's here) and humans make mistakes, so I'm never looking for perfection. I'm looking for progress and growth. I'll be honest, this discussion has gone on to the point where I'm surprised. That's pleasantly surprising and speaks well for Morrus and ENWorld's moderation.
  • 04:00 PM - RedJenOSU mentioned Morrus in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    So if @Morrus told you to stop he would not be on your side and he you be sustaining and supporting the structural dynamics that allow harassment and assault to continue and thrive in this environment so you won't feel safe? No. That does not seem consistent with your viewpoint. Do you yield to authority (Morrus) and because lowkey13 has none per say in this environment you deem him as an enemy if he requests the same thing from you? No. Le me try to put the dots close together. Afrodyte has stated previously that if @Morrus feels that what she is doing should stop, then upon being notified of his choice as the moderator, Then she will respect his request as the moderator. At that time she would discontinue her attempt to demonstrate through her requests (Name, SSN, pic) instances in this discussion that she personally feels fall somewhere between unfriendly and hostile toward women.
  • 03:33 PM - Sadras mentioned Morrus in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    Yet, I find it interesting that my fairly benign statements showing that I don't automatically trust every self-proclaimed good dude are getting more heat than some of the deeply unsettling things several posters have been saying in the past 15 pages I've been participating on this thread. That is a curious statement. The last 15 pages have been relatively mild compared to what had been posted before where Morrus got involved several times. As for you getting heat more than the trolls, citation needed. I'm not seeing any evidence of what you're claiming, especially given the XP count which equates to support. If you really think that an exaggerated demonstration of the daily precautions I have to take to avoid harassment and assault is unfairly blaming poor, innocent men who are just trying to have a discussion, you haven't been paying attention to what several women and men have been saying on this thread, and you are not on my side (whatever being on my side supposedly means), and it all of it sustains and supports the structural dynamics that allow harassment and assault to continue and thrive in environments where people are supposed to be safe. So if @Morrus told you to stop he would not be on your side and he you be sustaining and supporting the structural dynamics that allow harassment and assault to continue and thrive in this environment so you won't feel safe?

The man has a Facebook account, among other internet footprints, and he's posted some of the exact same things there, as well as actually discussing his participation in this thread.

  • 02:58 AM - Mistwell mentioned Morrus in post [+] Plus Threads
    ...o started the thread then replied "You need to read up on the concept of "plus" threads if you think I want an echo chamber, or if you don't see the very valid reasons why the site supports such threads. If you want to keep discussing this that's fine, but I will need to ask you to start a new thread to do it." A second user said they doubted the premise of the thread was possible, and was told again "This is a plus thread. If you want to argue against the premise of the thread, start a new one." When questioned on that, the poster then said, "Questioning the point of the thread is exactly what you don't get to do in a plus thread." Can a user now declare a thread they start to be designated a "plus" thread and therefore police their thread for anyone who questions a premise of the topic? Are we now supposed to always start a new thread if we question the premise of a designated "plus" thread? It's possible I missed that new rule. I asked elsewhere and someone mentioned Morrus had discussed the possibility of such a thing but it had never been enacted as a rule as far as they knew. So, is this a thing now?

  • 05:34 AM - Ancalagon mentioned Morrus in post Most popular class/race combos
    Two comments: 1: I note that the "spread" of classes is much less dramatic than the race spread. The most popular class is a bit more than twice as popular as the least popular class. That's a good thing IMO! Race wise however, the spread is what, 12-13 fold? That's huge. Even is we exclude the non PHB races, the spread remains about 5-fold. I have to say that ... I'm ok with that. I would be far more concerned if the situation was reversed 2: Morrus : this is very cool info, but I'm curious why you are re-posting it?
  • 01:54 AM - Yaarel mentioned Morrus in post Most popular class/race combos
    @Morrus Did the top 10 list accidentally leave out the Elf Wizard? The chart says there are 2744 Elf Wizards and 2568 Human Wizards. This means, the Elf Wizard is a more popular combo than the Human Wizard.

  • 06:17 PM - CapnZapp mentioned Morrus in post I gotta ask: the "laugh" points, are they meant as appreciation or as mockery??
    Morrus: this issue doesn't go away. I'm going to report a series of my own posts where a user clicks laugh (yes, I know the button is called "laugh with this post") even though my remarks are not in any sense made with humor in mind. In short, I find it impossible to interpret this as anything else than mockery. I am writing this post because I know you are busy and might have a mod handle the reporting, so you might not even see the series of reported posts. (I need to post this first so I can include a link in my reports for your moderation convenience) If you or your mods redtext the user to stop abusing the laugh functionality all is well in the world. But I am ressurrecting this thread to clearly flag that it is not a new issue, and it remains a serious one. I've gotten dozens of laugh points I could have done well without, and I feel that if I do not bring thus back up to your attention it will never stop. I can't be alone in getting these points that only burn. If y...

  • 08:06 AM - Ancalagon mentioned Morrus in post Let's Look At Alchemy In Pathfinder 2!
    There was apparently a podcast that divulged more information (I don't have a link at the moment) - Alchemical items have "levels" from 1 to 20 - Bombs were supposed to require two hands to use, but that's being changed to one hand Also from the comments, PF2 will NOT use item weight, but a "bulk" system similar to Star finder. Another comment is that alchemists can get more resonance, which is rather important because they need it to use magical items AND wield alchemy. The start of day items, as you guys have guessed, are subsidized for a better rate if you can predict ahead of time which items you will need and make duplicates. Plus, the alchemist gets a class feature that adds extra resonance and scales, Intel for you Morrus ! :)

Other than that, I also have the XP/laugh issue (only in desktop view, mobile view seems to work).

    I'm currently finding quote works with a double click, but not a single click. Can anybody confirm?I can indeed confirm that. Also, mark me as another having issues with giving XP. At first thought it was on my end, so I logged out then logged back in, but even that was a problem at first, as the login wouldn't take, until I closed the tab and followed a link from the weekly email (which fortunately I hadn't deleted yet). So logins may be another bug issue.
  • 07:18 AM - Lanefan quoted Morrus in post Let's Talk About THAC0
    To be fair, nobody has carefully explained to me that subtraction is really hard yet.Is isn't. But I still never used THAC0, for two reasons - one philosophical and one practical. Philosophical reason: both as player and DM I want the combat matrix (or later, BAB) to be DM-side info rather than player-side. Practical reason: for me as DM it puts in an extra unnecessary step in figuring out whether an attack hits or not; that step in fact being that I have to start the calculation an entirely different way. The way I do it now the player gives me their roll after adjustments, I add the target's AC* and any other unknown-to-players factors* and if the result is 21+ it's a hit. If instead a player were to just tell me "I hit AC 4" I'd have to reverse-engineer how that number was arrived at (knowing that the player in theory doesn't know the combat matrix) and then do the same steps I already do. * - can be + or - numbers, or 0.

    I feel sorry for poor old THAC0. It has a bad reputation for being complex, when it's exactly as complex as the current method! I wonder how much of the bad rap comes from the varying AC of the edition - flat footed; surprised; attacks from the rear - rather than THAC0 being complicated. People only remember AC being more complicated and it’s easier to blame one thing.

  • 01:31 AM - Slit518 quoted Morrus in post Let's Talk About THAC0
    I feel like THAC0 gets a bad rap. It's the precursor to 3E's Base Attack Bonus, and came after 1E's attack matrices. It's actually super simple. The important thing to remember is that it's the exact same math, but in reverse. In 3E-5E, you roll d20 and add a bonus in order to beat the target's AC. In 1E-2E, you roll d20 in order to beat THAC0 minus AC. So instead of adding a number to your d20, you simply deduct a number from your THAC0. Same maths, just minus instead of plus. If your THAC0 is 15, and your target's AC is 2, you need to roll 13. It's that simple! (Remember, lower AC was better). I feel sorry for poor old THAC0. It has a bad reputation for being complex, when it's exactly as complex as the current method! I started with 2nd edition in 1999 when I was in high school. Never had a problem with it, and enjoyed it. Getting Armor Class to the negatives was a fun challenge. I too miss Thac0. For those of you who don't know, in case it wasn't mentioned ...

  • 10:38 PM - GreyLord quoted Morrus in post Let's Talk About THAC0
    But the thing I’m not clear on.... which is harder, addition or subtraction? Could somebody please just tell me! Similar to which is harder, multiplication or addition? For one who has learned elementary math, they can probably multiply 2x2 as easily as they could add 2+2. They could do an exam of 100 questions of easy addition (3+4, 7+2...etc) as quickly as they could multiplication (4x8, 3x6). However, for some multiplication will always feel harder than addition. The same probably also applies to subtraction. Someone even did a science project or two showing this!!! Not that any of it should be a problem for those who were the game's intended audience, anymore than figuring out whether you had an attack of opportunity or not. But, I do know several that never figured out how THAC0 worked (I was the DM normally, so the burden would fall on me anyways) and had gotten their university degrees! (and the same also applies to attacks of opportunities, always was aske...

    But the thing I’m not clear on.... which is harder, addition or subtraction? Could somebody please just tell me! This is the quality content and discourse I come here for

    So instead of adding a number to your d20, you simply deduct a number from your THAC0. Same maths, just minus instead of plus. There's your problem right there. Subtraction is harder than addition. Lower things being better is the opposite to convention. THAC0's bad rep was well earned. In 2E I replaced it with a system where armour classes started at 10 and went up and you rolled a d20, added modifiers, and tried to get equal to or greater than the target's armour class.

    And yet I stand by my assertion. It is not as complex (or, indeed, confusing) as it’s reputation. Standing by un-measurable assertions is easy. It still looks like standing by your 1974 Ford Pinto* as a great car. :p *Which had a reputation for blowing up if it got rear-ended
  • 09:15 PM - Umbran quoted Morrus in post Let's Talk About THAC0
    I hope another dozen people explain to me that addition is easier than subtraction! :) Be careful what you wish for... Nevertheless, I still maintain my position that THAC0 is not as complex as it’s reputation would lead you to believe, whether or not addition is easier than subtraction. Are you sure the reputation is "more complex", and not just "more confusing"? But, note that in your explanation, you left out a step: In 3E-5E, you roll d20 and add bonuses in order to beat the target's AC. In 1E-2E, you roll d20 and add bonuses (Strength, magic, etc) in order to beat THAC0 minus AC. So, in 3E-5E, you do one mathematical operation, on the roll total. In 1E-2E you generally do two - one on the die, one on the target number. And that "minus AC" in general also included the fact that the AC could be a negative number. Whether you decide that this is not "as complex as its reputation". It does literally require more operations.
  • 08:50 PM - Reynard quoted Morrus in post Rocket Age: Retro Sci-fi In Space For D&D
    Not as much as 3E did. 3E's wasn't really a stealth transformation. There was solid intention from even before release that the d20 system was going to be everywhere (what was the name of that supers game; not M&M, the other, terrible one). By contrast 5E seems to be inspiring a release her and a release there in adjacent genres. Like I said, it's interesting. And I think the core system of 5E would work find for a lot of action adventure stuff, even if you have to do some M&M level hacking to get it to work in some places.

    Nevertheless, I still maintain my position that THAC0 is not as complex as it’s reputation would lead you to believe, whether or not addition is easier than subtraction. I'm not sure THAC0 has a reputation at all, if by "reputation" you mean "opinion held by people without direct knowledge." In my experience, people either know what THAC0 is because they played 2E, or they didn't play 2E and have never heard of it.
