  • 02:10 PM - halfling rogue mentioned Paraxis in post Jousting
    Thanks for the input Paraxis . I guess it just feels loopholey to me that a Mount can't independently attack on it's own, but can Disengage on its own. If it is a controlled mount, I would assume the Mount and Rider were jointly acting in unison as far as movement/action goes. Giving the Mount a disengage option added to the Rider's move/attack/move, so that an opportunity attack is not invoked, seems a bit wiggly. If I were DMing I'm not sure how I would rule. My gut says, no disengage if the Rider has fulfilled his actions, but the rules do leave it open for your interpretation. I wish I could word this clearer so I could submit it to twitter for a response.

  • 04:47 PM - El Mahdi mentioned Paraxis in post Sage Advice (18 May 2015)
    I have never seen anyone say that.... What they were claiming, is an 11th level fighter could fire his handbow 3 times, then fire his 'other' handbow once as a bonus action. I'm pretty sure that adds up to four attacks... And it's also not what many have been claiming. Many have taken the phrase "You ignore the loading quality of crossbows with which you are proficient." to mean that essentially, reloading is hand-waved. That you can dual-wield and fire them as many times a round as you have attacks plus bonus action, each and every round. That you do not need a hand to re-load. Needing a hand to reload was claimed to not be RAW. It's now official that it is. Also, initially, many of these people also used Two-Weapon Fighting to apply to this. That's since been shotdown for most people since TWF specifically states melee weapons. Two of those who believe(d) this are shidaku (who calls this sage advice clarification silly), and Paraxis That is not allowed, but... That same fighter could fire his handbow 3 times, and then fire the *same* handbow as a bonus action..... assuming he has a free hand to help load.[\quote] True. [QUOTE=Coredump;6620248]As it stands, you could probably still do some form of dual weilding handbows with some combo of dropping and picking up.... but it doesn't get you any more attacks. There were many before this that claimed it did get you more attacks, by completely ignoring needing a hand to load. Don't just take my word for it, there are plenty of older threads claiming exactly that, give them a look. I think it might work to sheather/draw a rapier each round and still use a handbow.... I agree. Dropping would suffice also. However, one would not be able to sheathe and re-draw in the same round. So I guess then, as Obryn said, Rapier+hand-crossbow is out to a certain extent. One could be holding both and attack with both in the same round (with Crossbow Expert F...

  • 12:55 PM - vlysses mentioned Paraxis in post Running away...
    thanks all for your answers! @Paraxis / Saelorn, it's the page 272 DMG stuff I was looking for... Since I'm not mastering, I did not read that (but our DM did not either...) anyway, that opens the route to a DEX based escape route as well. this i don't understand, however: both the Tumble and Overrun rules say "as an action or a bonus action" - if you can use this as a bonus action, why would you ever use it as an action?? one important point here is that the rules make this a contest against your opponent, as opposed to 3.5/PF where tumble through enemy square was a DC15 acrobatics check, which at higher levels, at least for high dex characters, became trivial. Now the difficulty scales with the opponent, which is good, and the system is much flatter... nonetheless, some answerers did suggest to just improvise an ability check - for those ppl: at what DC would you position this? 15? 20? higher, in the middle? @sithramir: while I agree that you should never have an immovable guard blocking a door, i'm glad there IS t...

  • 01:56 AM - SkidAce mentioned Paraxis in post Runecaster Feat
    The intent of changing those spells to rituals was because they felt like they provided the framework a runecaster would use (i.e. use the spells rules for all runes, more or less). Such as laying traps on the battlefield. Paraxis , what would the affect of changing the casting time for "runecasters" to 1 action instead of becoming rituals? Would let the balance of the existing spell slots kinda work, and would allow for running around a corner and inscribing a trap.

  • 02:19 AM - I'm A Banana mentioned Paraxis in post Adventure Time Book For D&D?
    ...e big strengths of AT as a narrative was that it didn't HAVE to be codified. Your magic stretchy dog can do whatever. And it's not about stabbing goblins or gaining treasure, it's about the particular characters and their own personality quirks. So I don't know that AT's awesomeness would translate that well to D&D in particular. That said, the tweet just says Pendelton is swinging by to collaborate on "a future D&D story." Given other tweets and subjects about how book publishing is NOT the sole route they see the "D&D stories" being told in, it could be completely unrelated to a world supplement, and it could also be completely unrelated to Adventure Time (Pendleton's got other irons in the fire, I'm sure). I'm optimistic about the *actual* thing Perkins tweeted about, by itself - it's really cool that WotC is tapping smart, creative D&D fans to collaborate with in any capacity. It doesn't have to be an AT world supplement - I don't know I'd want that. But it could be, like Paraxis said, some sort of collaboration on a bit of a narrative element that could use his special touch. Hell, maybe he's being tapped for a potential D&D cartoon show on Habro's network feautring one of the "stories." That'd be fly as frig - I'd be more hyped about that then some d20 rules for your magical vampire queen or whatever.

  • 03:13 PM - TwoSix mentioned Paraxis in post Spell concept to replicate 4e Bladesingers
    ...bility, I think. Oh well. But if you are saying that you cannot use a two-handed weapon with this cantrip because you need to have both hands on the weapon for the Attack action... and the magic from the Bonus action casting of Elemental Arc isn't manifesting UNTIL a successful attack with that Attack action-- I'm not sure if that's actually legal. You are essentially casting a magical effect with an Attack action and I don't think that's technically allowed. Any other Bonus action spell manifests during the Bonus action itself. Unless I'm mistaken, I can't think of any other magical Bonus action spell whose completion happens not during said Bonus action, but only during the paired Action of the player. I believe the intent was that the bonus action functions similarly to the bonus action grapple provided by the Tavern Brawler feat, wherein taking the bonus action is contingent on the melee attack specified in the spell functioning as the bonus action trigger. I don't think Paraxis was thinking about the "two-hand attack, free action to drop a hand to cast" idea, although I don't want to speak for him as the drafter of the spell.

  • 12:29 PM - MasterTrancer mentioned Paraxis in post Watery Sphere (Elemental Evil Companion)
    If drowning was supposed to be an effect of the spell I am sure it would mention it, besides with a 1 minute duration it would hardly ever come up. SUFFOCATING A creature can hold its breath for a number of minutes equal to 1 + its Constitution modifier (minimum of 30 seconds). When a creature runs out of breath, it can survive for a number of rounds equal to its Constitution modifier (minimum 1 round). At the start of its next turn, it drops to 0 hit points and is dying. For example, a creature with a Constitution of 14 can hold its breath for 3 minutes. If it starts suffocating, it has 2 rounds to reach air before it drops to 0 hit points. So just assume anyone caught in the sphere is holding their breath. Thank you for your answer @Paraxis. Actually, anyone with a negative CON modifier (i.e.: CON up to 9) would drown and die; the spell duration is up to 1 minute: let's take away 30 seconds (minimum hold breath) and remove again 1 round (minimum survival for a creature that has run out of breath), we're still 4 rounds away from the spell's end, which leaves wide margins for suffocation if I am right. I concede it's rare to find an adversary with a low CON, though I can't check the MM right now. You are right though in that the drowning is not mentioned in the spell's description, and that is what offput me.

  • 08:09 PM - SkidAce mentioned Paraxis in post Martial Arts and Styles
    ...e martial arts than this...take a level of monk. Or a monk could add maneuvers by taking this feat. Either way, the monk still gets many abilities, so this doesn't step on their toes. (too much, but my campaign background has been this way anyway so...) Perhaps there could be a Expert Martial Artist feat, raising your unarmed to d6. And potentially add 2 more maneuvers, and a superiority die, with/without improvement. This would give martial artist at the most FOUR special maneuvers, which should be plenty to characterize a style of martial arts within my world. And the expert martial artist would be around 4-8th levelish. Way down the line I might get bold and add perhaps ONE maneuver from The Book of Nine Swords, as a capstone ability. Hmm I could use this to recreate my swordmasters.... Thanks for the read...if you made it this far...please review and comment. It likely could use tweaking, and is not designed for all campaigns like an official product would be. Hey Paraxis, you have a good eye for mechanics and balance, please look also.

    CapnZapp Paraxis I decided to see what I could come up with in terms of magic item prices. I'm sure it isn't as good as what WotC might come up with, but I believe it to be functional and in the meantime it could suffice for your needs. It's a public viewable google spreadsheet, so if you want to tweak the numbers just make a copy and have at it. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1SprfaZ63l4aminf040U6Mk1NVKTkWTkEcbOIAmdxeUU/edit?usp=sharing

  • 04:24 AM - Trit One-Ear mentioned Paraxis in post Rogues (melee-based) & Two-Weapon Fighting: Why not always do it?
    I feel like just the other day I saw a post asking why a rogue would ever go melee, as opposed to ranged. It may have been on another message board, can't recall. Not trying to spark up that debate, I'm just curious the variety of responses I've seen regarding this issue. To me, it's a strong point of 5E that no single combat style (for rogue at least) is widely thought of as "best." Aside from the reasons Paraxis listed above, I agree that dual-wielding is probably general practice. It also fits nicely in with the rogue archetype most people are now familiar with. In my mind, rogues are about having tricks and options, and the choice to get a second attack, dodge, disengage etc. is very appealing. Trit

  • 01:58 PM - Fanaelialae mentioned Paraxis in post What's the point of gold?
    2e required that you figure out the recipe for making individual items, or at least the expanded rules in Spells & Magic did. I think the core rules did too, but I'm not sure. I don't think they called it a "recipe" though. Yeah, I remember that; I think the DMG had basic guidelines which Spells & Magic expanded upon. 2e didn't call it a recipe, but IIRC that's what it was (once you researched it, you could use the same formula to reproduce the same item again and again, although there was a chance of failure each time depending on how closely you followed the recipe). My confusion was because Paraxis was talking about formulas from 1e, which also exist in 5e. The only other thing I could think he meant was that somewhere in 1e it actually spelled out how to make each individual item, but I don't recall ever seeing that. As an aside, IIRC, the gold prices for magic items in 2e were only meant as a basis for rewarding xp for the crafting of those items (and maybe also for awarding xp if following the xp for gold rule, I'm not certain). I'm pretty sure that somewhere in the DMG it stated that those "prices" were not intended for the buying or selling of magic items.
  • 08:29 AM - Saelorn mentioned Paraxis in post Any reason to go Melee vs. Stay ranged as a Rogue?
    Paraxis got the main thing, and the option of making a second attack can really help the consistency of your sneak attack. Another factor, which I hesitate to mention, is that it increases the chance you'll get. Any attack that goes against you is one less attack that goes to the tank, and you'll get all of your HP back after a long rest anyway. It might increase the survivability of the group if you "take one for the team".

    ...So imagine a halfling cleric in a wheelbarrow with Spirit Guardians up being pushed around by his team member on each of their turns while they take the Disengage action avoiding all attacks of opportunity. Such an image certainly DOES NOT invoke my sense of heroic fantasy... It's heroic if the halfling is wearing a Holocaust Cloak.

    Doesn't sound like harassment to me but a player being a player, if these girls thought he was more attractive they wouldn't call it harassment. You have to be assertive, you have to put yourself out there, you have to be take as many swings at bat as you can and most of the time you strike out but you won't ever get anywhere if you don't try.

Being attractive may increase the likelihood of consent but it by no means guarantees it.

  • 07:27 PM - Jester David quoted Paraxis in post Do We Still Need "Race" in D&D?
    Need, no, but should we change to match the whims of a small group of people because it upsets them, also no. Race is a perfectly fine term, and used the way it is in rpg books is more accurate than modern use when talking about skin coloration. Absolutely. It’s just a term. Just like negro, retard, Eskimo, oriental, and Indian. The fact of the matter is “race” was a term used too apply to certain ethnic groups under the assumption they were physically and biologically different from other groups. The implication was that the “Arabic”, “mongoloid”, and “Caucasian” races were different in some way and largely unrelated. This was proven to be false, as genetically, there’s very little difference between ethnic groups and quite a lot of overlap and crossover. The term “race” strongly implies that there are inherent difference between ethnic groups. Differences that do not actually exist. It’s a term that was being phased out a century ago and no longer has any value scientifically. It’s a l...

  • 11:45 AM - clearstream quoted Paraxis in post Strength bows?
    Now if I had a fighter in my game that was strength based I could see me adding in a magic item like the following. ODYSSEUS'S BOW Weapon (bow), Legendary (require's attunement) This magic bow can only be used by those with a 17 or higher strength. It is +1 to hit and adds the user's strength modifier to damage along with dexterity like normal. It does double damage to inanimate objects, rumored to have once puncturing holes through a dozen axe heads with ease. I like the idea of giving the item as a magic weapon, perhaps also with some kind of mysterious - this weapon could go up in a puff of game balancing at any time - clause? "The Gods hand out such weapons rarely, and take them back according to the virtue of the wielder and their own inscrutable whims." As a pedantic side-note, the axe-heads had holes already in them: the feat of Odysseus was one of accuracy not might. Although the hero was known for being mighty, too!

    Guy gets drunk and acts stupid and people lose their minds, this happens all the time, it's happening right now, somewhere. So, because people get drunk and do stupid things all the time means that it's OK and everyone should get a pas because "I was drunk. *tee-hee*"? No one was physically hurt, no one was raped, the "victim" needs to develop a thicker skin and learn to forgive and forget this should never have been made an issue of. You will actually find, if you care to read the Paizo thread linked up-thread, that the victim was not clamoring for attention and simply wanted to resolve the situation and move on. This did not occur and steps had to be taken to ensure her safety. The fact that you don't see her as a victim and how you choose to put that word in quotations is troubling at best.

  • 10:59 AM - Cap'n Kobold quoted Paraxis in post No Thief/Acrobat in XGTE, so... how would you do it?
    Lots of good ideas, but one of the key points of any good thief acrobat is using a quarterstaff for a weapon, so this needs to be addressed. Rogues can already use Quarterstaves as weapons. They can use any Simple weapon, and a Thief-Acrobat isn't likely to dump Strength due to the running, jumping, climbing aspects of the concept. I don't think it is a a big deal since the staff maxes out at d8 if used with both hands, and isn't heavy so can't use GWM feat, so just talk to the DM and see if your Rogue (thief) who is an expert in athletics/acrobatics, and has the entertainer background (acrobat) can treat a quarterstaff as a finesse weapon. I'd find simply allowing Sneak attack with a quarterstaff less comical than making it a Finesse weapon. - But I just flat-out removed the Finesse requirement for Sneak Attack as a houserule anyway.

You can just use the box they have for the normal gain at 4,7, and 10.This! I really like this idea. It makes choosing stat arrays with one or more odd stats a lot more attractive. I've found that players otherwise vastly prefer having even stats, at least for their primary and secondary stats - which also happen to be the ones that are (almost) exclusively raised.

    For those who find the prices insulting like I do, there are tools online that are free that do most of what D&D Beyond does you just need to spend some time finding them instead of cash. Promoting the use of illegal tools. Well done. Excellent observation. That you can get away with not paying to support your hobby. Awesome work.
