    Lots of people certainly like books. No doubt about that. Lots of people also like PDFs, as evidenced by the DMs Guild (which WotC created); and they also like other digital options, like DDB, FG, and Roll20. It's not a binary choice.

    As a GM I pretty much stick with the RAW. As a player and GM I prefer 3.5/PF 1 so I'm used to the AOOs from both those games. But I can see from a design point of view of getting rid of the number of AOOs in 3.5e/PF1 to make the game simpler like moving towards 5E's approach.

    We did a skit about that in last week's podcast, with a player suggesting more and more outlandish races, starting with deep gnomes and tieflings, through aaracokra and minotaurs, to mind flayers and dragons, to daleks and Borg Queens, to, eventually, V'ger. The idea of somebody playing V'ger as a PC still cracks me up.

    (A question for those planning to play PF2; if you’re not, this isn’t really for you - don’t threadcrap, please). So you’re planning on playing PF2. While you are probably coming from PF1, is anybody coming from 5E? Obviously, it’s not a permanent thing; you can play more than one game, try out others, all that stuff. But I was curious whether there’s a demographic out here who feel PF2 is...

    I've played it twice. It plays simpler than PF1. Attacks of opportunity are pretty much gone. I made one PC and I didn't care for the PC creation process. The "class" feat choices seemed similar to 4e powers to me. I'd prefer the PF1 approach of feats which ALL PCs can chose from. Resonance is going away which most of my friends are happy about.

    I was thinking about that very thing earlier today. That’s an artifact of using average rolls rather than the Judge rolling for the monsters. If the Judge rolls, you’d need a monster with 19d6 in its Defense skill (which doesn’t exist) to make it impossible to hit by a starting character. I like the average rolls because it makes play really fast, but you do lose that randomness. One...

    By the same argument fighting, shooting, and defence are al forms of combat. Any skill list can be pared down indefinitely until you just end up with “skill”, but I do feel those two things are different enough. I wouldn’t want the average orc to charm somebody.

    Simply6 is a fast, light tabletop roleplaying game for 2 or more players which you can play using just six-sided dice. I put this together over the last couple of days in my spare time (based on something I was playing with in the forums a while back) and have uploaded it to DTRPG. It's only about 20-pages long, and will likely be tweaked and updated after I get some feedback.

    Morrus replied to We're back!
    It's not the next logical step due to differences. It's the next logical step because it's structurally similar, making the upgrade the easiest one it could be. Xenforo is made by the people who left vBulletin about a decade ago when it changed ownership, and is the 'spiritual' successor, rather than vBulleitn 5 which is substantially different and not well-regarded. It's also better supported.

    Over the last couple of days I've been attempting a migration to Xenforo (the logical upgrade path for this platform). Unfortunately, it failed, and I've rolled it back. I'll try again in a few days. Sorry about the downtime and the anti-climactic result! Hopefully next time will be better. darjr and I have done this a few times on a test server over the last year, with mixed results. It's not...

    Has been for a while now. The only difference is the DMsG replaces the d20 STL, as WOTC figured out how to monetise third party efforts. And many publishers steer shy of that after the last two licenses, and stick to the OGL alone.

    The only people who have seen the game are under NDA. I liked some aspect of the playtest rules, and didn't like other things. But I knew it was a playtest, not a ruleset, and included exaggerated examples of things and a very specific set of adventures geared towards stress testing. I'm sure Paizo knew that the playtest process would turn off some people, but would make for a better game,...

    Thanks Henry, but I am not sure I follow your idea. Is it a layout issue, or the ordering of the info? ilsundal. Thanks for the kind words. I know people don't like following links here much on ENWorld ;), but if you are interested in seeing how this relates to the weapons in the PHB AND a whole bunch more, you can check out our Equipment Page here: http://connorscampaigns.wikidot.com/d-d-equipment (NB: I may have to adjust some of the names myself, as some weapon property names changed several times through the editing process - especially Readied, which I still have labelled as 'Set for Charge' on the website).

    Henry: OK. My PCs are at 6th level - and although there are five of them, this player says her character "isn't stupid enough" to risk getting captured by the duergar again without backup. Of course, she was willing to send her PC off alone on a 20-day round trip journey through the wilderness to their base town, but I pointed out there's a closer town known to cater to adventurers, so the others have agreed to head that way with her PC to look at hiring some reinforcements. Do you reckon I should just limit them to the low end of the scale: eg. acolyte, bandit, guard, scout, tribe member?

  • 03:13 AM - Morrus mentioned Henry in post Wherein we ask each other dialect questions we don't quite understand
    A few years ago, when visiting Sweden for work, I spent time with my Swedish and English coworkers. I taught them the meaning of "riding shotgun" and "calling shotgun." Do our non-Americans here know why "knock up" is funny to Americans? Do you know the terms Shag and shotgun? Do our non-Southerners here know the Shag? (I bet few Southerners even know the Shag, nowadays.) We know - and use - the shotgun terminology. While American in origin, it's not at all obscure. The 'knock-up' anecdote is one I've bizarrely heard from every American I've ever spoken to about dialects. I've never used or heard the term in any way except the "get pregnant" meaning, though I am aware of the alternate meaning. I only know about the Shag because Henry gave me a book about it at my first Gen Con. As you know, it means something very different over hear. If anyone says to you "fancy a shag?" they are not asking you to engage in a traditional Southern US dance. :)

  • 11:22 PM - TornadoCreator mentioned Henry in post Player Flavour, Skills, & Money Sinks
    Henry Yeah, as I've said, at higher levels it may become unbalanced; I concede that. My main thinking though is once you get high enough that 7th level spells are commonplace is a jump in skills that big of an issue? Rogues & Bards already have Expertise available to them, so it's already part of the system; and Mastery is designed to be rare as I said. It could well require an adventure in it's own right to achieve. So really, this rule is going to manifest in play more often, as a way to pick up that extra proficiency or gain expertise in a skill or tool that defines your character. Mastery is, if anything, a high end goal and should be powerful. The whole "my bonus is higher than your D20 score" is intentional. It's to represent say, an archmages knowledge of the arcane, a top class assassin's ability to use stealth, a world famous bards ability to use performance etc. this isn't just a bonus you get, it should express the direction of the entire character and represent weeks of act...

    You have done this for a long time and through going to conventions, running the ENnies, and in general being around people in the industry you must have some real good memories of time spent gaming or talking games with a few giants in the industry, can you tell us about a couple of those times? I know Gary Gygax was a poster here and did a couple AMA type things, did you ever get to just hang out with him? I can tell you about the time I FAILED to game with Gary Gygax! A few years back, Gary ran a game for the EN World moderators. It was on Wednesday night at Gen Con. As has happened every single year I've ever been, flight delays and immigration made me completely miss what was happening on Wednesday night (that's included a WotC D&D press dinner when 4E was announced, an event with Trapdoor Tech last year, and, og course, a friggin' game with Gary Gygax!) All I have to remind me of it are the gloating jeers of the likes of Piratecat, Henry, Rel, etc. Damn them. But no, I never got to actually game with him.

    ...orefront shop to be robbed. Plenty of them would work with other crafters to just inlay gold into something else, like churches, temples, royal buildings, etc. Not to mention, how big was Paris compared to the rest of Europe back then? Pretty big. So sure, if you are in the biggest city in the entire kingdom, you might drop down a magic item shop. Which I am sure will have walls lined with all sorts of wonderous things right? And then comparing the real world to a world in which people can cast magic to make themselves invisible, teleport, polymorph/shape change, use telekinesis, put people to sleep or charm them, etc? Really? How again do you defend against this when you have a magic shop with stock values ranging from 5k to 500k? Any decent level group of adventurers could clear the place out. Let's see, they can target the silver smith, jeweler, or goldsmith and get some loot orrrrr they can target the magic shop that is full of potentially useful stuff. Hmmmmm I'd go with Henry on this. I'm not saying that a fantasy world needs to have magic shops, and I'm certainly not saying that these magic shops would have as many magic items on hand as a downtown jeweler, but the idea that security concerns alone should keep a retail outfit from selling magic items seems odd to me. Adventurers aren't the only people capable of using magic! A store selling exceptionally powerful magic items (probably a one-of-a-kind type deal, located in a major city overflowing with the 1%, maybe a fantasy Dubai) would employ exceptionally powerful security. Patrons might require some sort of official introduction, but they might also merely have to put down a substantial cash deposit and go through extensive security screening before actually getting to the show-room. I'm sure lots of golems would be on hand, as well as various enchantments protecting against teleporting. One can run a store that is "open to the public" and still have more security than a liquor store. I've also had ...

  • 06:54 PM - Neonchameleon mentioned Henry in post Sell 5th edition to a 4th edition fan...
    Henry, the problem with using the Withdraw option was that it put you on the wrong side of the fighter, having not attacked (and that assuming there were no walls in the way). Yes, next turn it might enable you to loop round past the fighter - but that's a very different matter from pressing on past the fighter - and still attacking the mage that turn. (Agreed on the Spiky Chains). Two things kind of dovetail to make it a bigger issue with more recent editions than it was before. The first is monster survivability. In 3e and 4e, one hit is no longer the difference between a living monster and a dead one anymore. This means that "opportunity attacks" for getting out of melee are less punishing (unless specifically ramped up like a defender's is). The second is combat mobility. It was pretty fine up until 4e to stand in one place and trade blows with the monsters for the few turns it might've taken you to kill them. After 4e, things move around a lot. And the moving around isn't pun...

    You get more prepared spells, not more spell slots. 5E does not use traditional Vancian casting. It's a Vancian/spontaneous hybrid. In 3E terms, you're a sorceror with the option to change your list of spells known once per day. Higher Intelligence means you get more spells known, but your number of spell slots stays the same. It's called Groovian. Right, Henry ? Thaumaturge.

For me personally, I'm all over skill challenges. Despite their many implementation flaws, that mechanic inspired so many awesome scenarios once I finally *grokked* it...

Showing pictures of myself or others engaged in sex acts? Engaging in hotel room hook-ups? Drunken groping or touching? Yes, I’m older, married, and pretty conservative in my social activities; but even if I were single and looking for someone, I couldn’t see any of the behaviors described as OK. I’d have to know someone EXTREMELY well, the chemistry would have to be obvious, and God forbid I wouldn’t try to hook up with them at some lame-ass convention hotel room. It’s just when I hear these stories, and the most frequent defense is, “they misinterpreted my actions,” I’m trying really hard to understand when someone got the idea that the action in question was OK in the context of a public venue in the first place.

    I think this whole discussion turns on why the popularity of the split between PF and 5e exists in the first place. I am beginning to believe that the “sufficiently complex yet sufficiently simple” concept is impossible to exist in the same game. The Paizo staff might prove me wrong, but honestly the best of both worlds I think is not having either game mirror the other too much at all... I fear you may be correct...

    Hiya! I’ll feel a lot better come August when we can have examples behind these opinions. As it is, everyone’s seeing certain things and judging them by what has come before. I have my concerns with parts of it, too, but saying this and all previous editions are focused on nothing but combat is pretty hyperbolic, IMO. There is plenty of great roleplay to be had in every version of D&D, otherwise we wouldn’t have actual play podcasts on it all over the place (because it’s pretty boring to listen to just combat, quite frankly). It's just that THIS version of "Rogue" basically, to me, seems to out-fight, out-damage, and out-defend the PF1 Fighter. That's why I commented that in order for this Rogue to not be, well, the "Win Button Class" that Paizo will have to have all other classes just as heavily built towards combat. I shudder to think what they are going to have to do with the Fighter class. As for the "roleplaying" side of D&D. Yes, you can RP anything, really. Hell, you can R...

  • 07:47 PM - Saelorn quoted Henry in post Pathfinder 2: Fighters, Skills, & Counterspells
    1) You’ve just made your enemy use two spells to cast one spell, and you’ve used only one, pretty good trade-off in my opinion, especially at mid-levels (5th through 10th). Plus if they’re not using their higher level slots, it’s not a sure thing. You want to use two fifth level slots to get your cone of cold off? Be my guest!Enemy spellcasters almost always have far more spell slots than an adventuring wizard, and are at zero risk of running out. They only have 2-3 rounds of combat per day, at most. You have five more encounters to get through today. 2) You assume the enemy knows you have counterspell. Until you cast it the first time, they don’t.If you're dressed like a wizard, in this world where classes are very strongly codified and wizards have a distinct appearance, then it's a fairly safe assumption. You're the one who isn't wearing armor, and also isn't doing kung fu. Maybe you can try to fake them out, by pretending that you know it if you don't, but that just means their spell go...

    From a meta-game perspective, it also brings to mind what a single wand of cure light wounds could do for an entire community of people. Unlimited healing could change an entire community of farmers, or a city, dramatically.This would also require rethinking many of the core assumptions about "wide magic" in Eberron. A war artificer, for example, could not just carry around a lot of fireball wands and spank the battlefield, as they would be limited by their Resonance.

    Actually, feels more like d20 modern than 4e - more like they took the “rogue talent” or “alchemist discovery” model. You see this approach in Starfinder already.There are definitely a sense of a variety of different systems at play: e.g., 4e, 5e, True20, d20 Modern, etc. But d20 Modern was really the first that expanded customization more on the level per level basis within the d20 chassis.
  • 03:33 AM - MoonSong quoted Henry in post [PF2] My one wish, please please do away with traits
    You stopped playing PF... over traits? I’m unsure I understand what made them so difficult to pick for you? Just pick two, any two, doesn’t matter, ask the GM if you can reword the flavor text to fit your character, as to why they have that benefit, and done? Is it the actual benefits given? Is it the flavor text? Just trying to understand? In any case, you may be disappointed, because it sounds like it’s being worked into a “backgrounds” concept for 2E. I really don't get what are they really for, they are a strange mixture of minifeats and claims of fictional space and the result just pulls me on opposite ways. Sometimes I find a trait with a fictional space I really really like, for example princess, princess is a nice if a little too specific fictional space, then I notice the mechanic... a +1 on diplomacy/intimidate? -since all classes I like usually have both as class skills- I might not even want to be good on either of the skills!, the trait is already intruding on the...

  • 05:04 PM - ehren37 quoted Henry in post Paizo Announces Pathfinder 2nd Edition!
    I concur, as our group’s years of playing 5e have shown us that the non-casters have just as much to contribute in combat, exploration, and social outcomes. We have two full casters currently and next to the halfling barbarian, he’s an unstoppable killing machine that takes half damage from everything in his path, and we just let him have his way. :) out of combat he contributes through both skills such as survival, as ell as intimidation of foes. Just because they’re skills doesn’t make them useless. Everyone gets skills though, and outside of expertise, noncasters aren't any better at using them. That needs to change. Casters should have a much lower proficiency modifier (since they're learning how to cast, which presumably takes time). The barbarian has the same number of skills as the caster, yet no spells. If he contributes equally, that's on the players, not the class.

    I thought you had to pay the $2.99 a month to get access to the content you purchased? Unfortunately with two different revenue streams, it can get confusing. But how it works is: CONTENT PURCHASING You buy the books (one time purchase, discounted from cover price, I think comparable to Amazon or maybe bit cheaper), you get access to them on the website and the mobile app including downloading them for offline access in the app. You can access them for as long as the website or app are around (which is, of course a consideration for the long term). But no subscription is required. (Plus there's options for unlocking bundles I think like "everything for paladins" etc, but I haven't read up on that much to know the details.) SUBSCRIPTIONS Monthly (or discounted 6-month or yearly) subscriptions unlock site features.

    As for PDFs, they do have a means to have the full text of the rule books (via D&D beyond) - they decided to go a different way for electronic distribution. Is it my preferred way? Not at all, I refuse to buy D&D beyond and have to pay a subscription to keep my content that I already own via the books, just to search easier. However, at least there’s the OGL text, so we’re not totally left out. I think from an executive perspective, D&D Beyond doesn’t have the reputation stain that PDFs had from the one time they DID try to release game content through legal PDF and their own copies were digitally laundered and pirated almost immediately. :( Not to go off on a tangent BUT (which is always a sign that it’s off on a tangent ;) ) content purchasing and subscriptions are different things at D&D Beyond.

    It may not be so much as no one WANTING to touch it, as not being ABLE to touch it without tripping legal land mines, since it’s not OGL. Pelgrane and John Tweet and Rob Heinsoo, as it was, had to make 13th Age different enough to where some people aren’t even calling it close enough to 4e to like it, and I suspect that’s about as close legally as a professional publisher is willing to get. That’s a good point. Though I f I understand correctly, it would be legal for someone else to make a game that played off of similar mechanics, but it would have to look very different, to the point where “not D&D” would inarguably be an accurate description. Because unless I’m mistaken, you can’t copyright game rules, only the presentation thereof.

That is my wager too. Heck I was hoping that by now WotC would loosen their grip on insider so programs like herolab could be used for adhoc games... nope. Greed and control :( Still sad that 5e doesn't have pdf files. It isn't like their approach stopped piracy in the slightest, but it has stopped many players in my games from bothering to buy anything.

    Side thought: some detractors' fear that a game rule from one OGL system will show up in another OGL system and "ruin" it is baffling to me. It's one of the two main purposes of open source and open content in the first place. If the spell scaling, or concept of balancing attack bonuses, or even a rule lifted whole cloth, if a good idea, then so be it. I don't see it as much here, but on some forums it drives my open-source-loving brain batty.Cross pollination benefits the hobby. Designers understand this, but players can get strangely protectionist... I look at RPG systems like recipes. To a certain extent, cross-pollenization IS good...in moderation. In cooking, that’s how you get things like creole-Vietnamese fusion restaurants and such. Too far, and you wonder why someone put habaneros and gyro meat in your apple pie, or if that fried fugu poboy is really safe to eat. Back in the day, I’d have happily run a 2Ed D&D game using HERO 4th’s HTH combat rules courtesy of the convers...

  • 03:26 AM - doctorbadwolf quoted Henry in post What's The Latest On The D&D Movie?
    No one thought Iron Man was going to make IRON MAN money, either - until it did. :) but I agree that if they want a D&D movie to be a success, it needs to be a great story, first, with compelling characters, and a genre film second. Had there been no Robert Downey, Jr. I doubt we’d have the Marvel Cinematic Universe, frankly - the perfect actor for the right story at the right time. DnD is vastly more niche than Iron Man, and Iron Man made the money it did because of the cast and the director, and the lucky fact that they didn't have a finished script, so it had to be largely improvised. A DnD movie has to, first and above all, focus on telling a good story. Any thought of setting has to serve that. The Dragonlance Chronicles are the only set of DnD stories I know of that were widely popular even outside of gamers, but WoTC will have the only real numbers on that, and it may well be that a studio, writer, director, or combination thereof would rather create a world for the story to ta...
