    Aureus nods her head in agreement and even Elijah relaxes, a little. Sir Balorix seems content with Caerth's decision while Sir Ghal shifts his feet, uncomfortably. Balorix notes the knight's uncertainty and puts his hand on his shoulder. The young knight sighs and nods his head. "I agree," the paladin says. "It would be foolhardy to rush in unprepared.

    Depends on how you define “monster”. Criminal Minds will be airing it’s 15th season this fall. Sure, it’s not supernatural urban fantasy/horror, but MotW is the formula for it and other successful action shows. I’d argue that Kolchack: the Night Stalker (ABC) and Constantine (NBC) were well received, but their Nielsen numbers were low. But those gross numbers are calculated across...

    While WoD is definitely the big dog in this subsection of the hobby, it doesn’t really have enough power to truly stifle creative competition. To the contrary, I’d assert that it’s enormous popularity has generated a significant amount of “Not-WoD” yearning for other designers to tap into. The only thing is, “Not-WoDism” is not unified in its desires, so it will be very difficult for...

    Sure...but if the game strives to be all things to all people, you get the kind of RPG that- to some people- suffers from bloat and possibly even imbalances. See D&D.

    I would love to run a game based on something like Imajica, Weaveworld, Great & Secret Show, Neverwhere, Koontz’s Odd Thomas books or any number of modern fantasy/horror works. But few dedicated urban fantasy RPGs would support most of those settings. That doesn’t even get into my own personal ideas... Hence my preference for using a toolbox system.

    In theory, yes. In practice, not so much: after about 1978 did anyone anywhere run a D&D campaign (or nigh any other RPG campaign, for that matter) without using at least one published module? Yeah, didn't think there were all that many. :) Which means, there's a whole lot of DMs - and, by extension, players - who cut their teeth on the published modules and were thus informed on a few...

    Only in a game where you can reasonably expect your character to survive that long. I'd hazard a guess that you're basing these statements on some 3e/PF experience, as that was the edition where this kind of thinking was (sadly) in vogue. Long-term play in 0e-1e (and maybe even early-version 2e) doesn't really have these kind of considerations, with the glaring exception of the as-written 1e...

    Pretty much - Braunstein is often cited as the first RPG but it's more accurate to say it's a more direct predecessor to LARPs than to TTRPGs; and it took Dave Arneson (who learned via Braunstein) to jump from the Braunstein stepping-stone to the tabletop.

    You don’t see a “Reply with quote” button? Edit: I see- you mean how quoting is interacting with blocking. Apparently, the app doesn’t support blocking. That, FWIW, is not related to the platform shift. If, OTOH, you’re just using the website and you can still see each other despite blocking, that could be a problem that needs reporting in the bug thread in Meta.

    Yeah, a swarm of wraiths could really mess up your day. In fairness, 1e did generally assume a larger party size: parties of 6-9 PCs were commonplace. Most 0e-1e modules were written with this kind of party size in mind - check their intro notes and you'll see. It wasn't until 3e that the party of 4 PCs became the standard.

    And IMO the game works even better if some of those things are modified to be perhaps a bit less simplified and-or a bit more realistic. Ease of recovery is trivially simple to alter. Armour actually works not too badly as is. The turn-based system can be made much less rigid simply by rerolling initiative each round (and allowing ties). Adding a wound-vitality or body-fatigue system to HP...

    Personally, I like having rules for both. IME, there are just as few masters of social interaction as there are masters of combat in gaming. Having rules for both lets players who aren’t play characters who are.

    Round here the general reaction I seem to recall was that the novels were OK but the modules were generally awful, in that a) they expected the PCs to be led by the nose far more than most modules of that era and b) for anyone who hadn't read the novels, large parts of them made little to no sense.

    That 60% or 80% or even 99.5% of encounters were/are resolved by combat is not the point, at least not the one I'm getting at. My point is that in 1e by RAW all that combat would still, in a typical published module* and given typical play, only represent about of the x.p. you'd usually earn for the adventure; with a very small percentage coming from non-combat encounters and the vast...

    I'm not the world's fastest reader but I can get through a typical FR fiction book in one evening*. To have the game-at-table progress at that speed would be ludicrous. Hell, the players wouldn't even be able to get through a quarter of the spoken dialogue in that time, never mind the travel, exploration, information gathering, combats, and all the rest of what goes into the amount of...

    Who cares? Internal consistency very much cares, in that it somewhat demands that the rule that was got wrong must then stay that way for the rest of the campaign such that the campaign/setting can be and remain consistent with itself. Which means, take the time to either a) get it right or b) think long and hard on the downstream ramifications of whatever wrong ruling you have in mind before...

    That may be exacerbated by diabetes, but that doesn’t sound like diabetes per se. It could be a lot of things. My paternal grandfather, my Mom, my paternal Aunt’s fiancée, and a couple of my friends all have diabetes. I’m prediabetic myself, but so far, haven’t actually gotten the illness.

    Doing the memory road thing again. I am making a map to revisit the very FIRST DnD game I ever ran some 25+ years ago. What is there was a fortress at the base of a steep hillside that the enemy couldn't invade? Have the earth clerics topple the hillside onto it of course. So you have a buried fortress that is still structurally "sound" only underground.

    I have to add my voice to the growing chorus here: how would (or could) this work with any kind of open-ended or sandbox-style game where the DM didn't have a pre-planned story in mind? I ask because if your idea is that ND&D only cater to the pre-planned story type of DM then it'll lose a very big - as in, enormous - core element that makes D&D as successful as it is: flexibility. As it is...

    Ditto. I went to a tiny private HS, and in my class of 27, there were 4 “Davids”, 4 “Johns”/“Jons”, and a “John-David”. They were all referred to by last names or initials. Especially JD. And in college, my group included a bunch of “Brians”, only one of whom was black, so he became “Black Brian.” In a different time & place, I hung out with a group hat had several siblings, as well as...

  • 03:11 PM - Blue mentioned jonesy in post Anyone playing Harebrained Schemes Battletech?
    Hey jonesy, this new one is turn-based and close to the tabletop conceptionally. It's great fun. If you're also looking for a real-time driving-my-mech experience, MechWarrior Online is free-to-play with both skirmishes and objective-based battles, usually 3 lances per side, each with a human piloting a single mech video-game style. (So 12 vs. 12 people.) Actually, the new HBS Battletech licensed the mech models from Piranha, the maker of MechWarrior Online and they've cross-promoted each other - they scratch different itches, they don't compete just compliment.

    Umm, let's see now. What I said was that Bethesda brought nothing new to the table. Fallout 76 isn't new, and we already knew there's going to be a steady supply of stuff coming for it, E3 or not. Ghostwire isn't made by Bethesda. Neither is Deathloop. Doom Eternal we already knew about (theres's been gameplay videos posted of it for months by players), and they already made the "story trailer" joke the last time. Wolfenstein Youngblood had a story trailer two months ago. Wolfenstein Cyberpilot 11 months ago. Elder Scrolls Blades for the Switch? The only new part about that is the Switch. The game itself has already been playable for months. Scalebreaker and Moons of Elsweyr are expansions for two more or less old games that already have been getting a steady supply of new expansions. We already knew that, just not what they were going to be called. I suppose Rage 2 getting an expansion already is somewhat noteworthy. And sure, Commander Keen is brand new. But is anyone actually excit...

    Is the E3 happening now the worst one ever? I've never been so bored watching the coverage. Like, EA somehow managed to bring in a Star Wars game that really does look pretty good and make me not excited for it. Bethesda's entire thing was them patting themselves on the back without having anything new on the table. I didn't catch EA,but I watched Beth's and well..did we watch the same thing? They apologized in a round about way about F076's launch, announced a ton of new content for it, then the other studios under Beth's portfolio announced a number of new games. https://kotaku.com/everything-bethesda-announced-at-e3-2019-1835362095

    I'm on Opera and I get an "Insecure Content" warning when I open the website, which isn't supposed to occur when the site is in https. That warning should be specific to http-sites. And yes, I have checked that I'm on the https version when the warning occurs. Firefox has a warning icon that says "Parts of this page are not secure (such as images)." And looking at the page source code shows some http: URLs for images & stuff. That's probably why Opera is giving that warning.
  • 12:34 PM - Ryujin quoted jonesy in post THE SWAMP THING
    I'm seeing reports that despite critical acclaim the show has just been cancelled. Am confused. It's a funding thing, apparently. The State of North Carolina was supposed to put up thirty-something million in tax rebates for the production, whose total budget for the season was around $80M. During production The State said, "Whoops! Paperwork error. Here's $14M instead." That's one story. Another is that the production expected the same support for the series as they got for the pilot episode, which wasn't the case. Either way the production became to expensive to sustain at that quality.

    I've tried that. Everything is either too small or too large on my phone. But if you're referring to the comment you got for the Picard trailer, I thought the main problem was that the link you used is blocked in some areas (I can't view the link at all, it just says 'content unavailable'). That's honestly not my fault I used the silly embed button and how was I supposed to know it was region locked?

    Another thing about lost continuity. I know they never mentioned it on the show, but it's possible that the Unsullied are sailing to their doom. The Isle of Naath is home to butterflies which spread a plague to anyone who wasn't born there. That's the reason they are 'peaceful people' as Missandei said. They don't need to defend themselves. Outsiders who go there die. https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Naath yep, they are basically committing mass suicide with how this season went, it kinda makes sense that is doesn't make any sense
  • 12:14 PM - Joker quoted jonesy in post GAME OF THRONES SEASON 8--Final Run-- Part 6---THE END
    The running theme throughout the final season was the distinctive lack of continuity. Things that happened in previous episodes had very little bearing on the following episode/s. The Red Keep falls on Jaime and Cersei in the previous episode, and in the final we discover it was just a couple of well-placed bricks that hit them. If they'd moved 5 steps to the left they'd have been fine. Arya rides away from the direction of the Red Keep in the previous episode, but then this episode begins there, with her there. Where was she riding to? From a writing viewpoint, what was the point of the horse? The season is full of continuity blunders large and small. The end of the Dothraki, nope here they are. The power of the scorpions, gone. Jaime decides to stay north, nope going south. It's the main criticism of the show, I reckon, that the pacing is so very off. I think it was Mallory and Jason from The Ringer (great website) who said it seems like David and David had an ending in mind and back-...

    You've never heard them before? Duuuuude: I came across them a few years back. For me, somehow I came across the group Battlelore (I forget how) and I liked a) the fact that the music was neat and b) lots of their music was based off the LotR, which was cool. Looked more into similar type of music, came across Nightwish, Lacuna Coil (Heaven's a Lie still one of my favorite songs) and more. Good type of music. Makes Evanescence seem bland to me.
