    People keep downing the batl'eth, but it is a really versatile weapon. It can slash, pierce, and bludgeon. It is good for trip attacks and parrying. It can be used one-handed or two-handed. I do not see a downside for a trained user.

    Geeks need an actual flag, let's design one. I think we need logos for different types of geeks and nerds to put on a flag. Any ideas?

    A set of dentures that allow you to make your jaws stretch out for a second, turning your bite into a reach attack. This lets you bite someone up to 10 feet away. If you roll max damage, you can choose to turn the bite into a grapple and drag the target toward you.

    I found it at Powell's Bookstore in Beaverton, Oregon. I had never seen it before. It was $30 instead of $50 like the original core book, so I grabbed it. I figured it would at least be a good introduction to the game.

    You want to survive? Fight dirty, use poison, be prepared to run. If you are being chased by a monster, you do not have to outrun the monster, just outrun another party member. If the monster is getting too close, knock out the guy next to you and then keep running. Also, use ranged weapons. Keep the enemy at a distance. Run and gun, keeping your distance from the enemy. You can be noble when you...

    The word Pixie comes from the Latin word pictus, which means painted or covered in pictures. The Romans called pre-Celtic peoples of Scotland "Picts" because they covered their bodies in images. It was legends about them that gave us Pixies. So, "Draco Picti", maybe?

  • 05:12 AM - gamerprinter mentioned Samloyal23 in post Holidays and Customs
    @Samloyal23 - that holiday is Beltane, a Celtic holiday for when the cattle are sent to the hills for summer feeding, and not only do the locals jump the fire, but so do the cattle - as a cleansing ritual. Beltane is one of four major Celtic holidays, the others being Imbolc (February, when ewes begin to lactate), Lughnasadh (late summer harvest festival), and Samhain (when the cattle and sheep return from the hills for winter foddar). Naturally Celtic holidays are pastorally based.

I do not see a downside for a trained user. Why yes it can. In the hands of an actor who knows his contract is for two years. It looks silly. But it must be super uber because Wolf um Worg, the knobbing headed guy who couldn't handle his mall cop job on the Enterprise has one. I seen a lot of silly weapons from tv and movies turn billy bad Beep because they looked cool and the fans wanted them to be the bestest weapon in the game.

    So I just bought this book, my first ever Pathfinder purchase. It says it is a test for PF2. What do I need to know that is not covered? Has anyone read this book? What were your impressions? Any grievous errors in it? Share your thoughts...Unfortunately I'd say you were hoodwinked. The full game will come out on Aug 1, which is only two weeks away. Your purchase will be completely obsolete by then. Nobody will discuss it. Nobody will want to use it, since a thousand little things will have been tweaked. (Heck, it was obsolete already six months ago, given the six or so patches that happened during the playtest) Unfortunately it isn't even a good start or a good introduction either - you've purchased a playtest, a beta; if anything, the final rulebook should add the newbie-friendly language they didn't bother with for the playtest. Also, the playtest was free online but also was published. Which a year ago was kind of reasonable. You'd use it to follow along in the public playtest process tha...

  • 06:18 PM - digitalelf quoted Samloyal23 in post Setting Idea: Arcane Dyson Sphere
    Wouldn't the exterior be dead cold like outer space? It would receive no sunlight at all... Yes, and the module reflects that by saying that unprotected characters receive 5d6 points of damage per round from the cold. That is however, while the characters are "in space", for once the characters are on the surface of the structure, there is no more mention of the cold, or any need to protect one's self from extreme temperatures. In fact, there is a sidebar that states that "the average temperature is comfortable, if a bit on the warm side." it goes on to say that the PC even feel some humidity. But I have to mention that the sun is not 100% enclosed; the part surrounding the sun is more tube-like than it is spherical; so a small portion of the sun protrudes from the top and bottom of this "tube". 107403

    If you want an example of a really large structure, take a look at the 2E setting Penumbra, the capital of the Illithid Empire. Yeah, this was almost the inverse of a Dyson Sphere, where the Sun was covered, with the inhabitants living outside of the structure in the relative darkness.

There are lots of possibilities... I wouldn't mind Ebla Pantheon (a mix of Mesopotamian, Canaanite, and native Ebla Deities among others), Hititte Pantheon. FR's full Pantheons.

There are lots of possibilities... No likely. By today's 5e standards you would have to do several books (4-8) to cover all of the content in the 1e Deities and Demigods and updated it to 5e. That is just not going to happen by WotC.

    Take a look at the Star Wars d20 rules for Force users. It is just psionics with fewer schools. It is not spell-based, it is based on feats and skills, and it works pretty well. Update it and expand it with new fields like the 2E psionics disciplines, and you have psionics system that is not just re-flavoured magic. I wish I could award you more XP for this post. A psionics system built with the rules for using the Force as presented in Star Wars Saga Edition would be great.

  • 01:43 PM - CapnZapp quoted Samloyal23 in post State of the mystic
    If that is all psionics is going to be, if they are not going to apply any more creativity than that, there is no point in doing it. What we need is a skill and feat based system like 2E had, so that it will simple and easy to use but distinguish itself from magic as a separate way to manipulate supernatural powers.You are correct - I don't think we will get more than "psionic spells". I do hope we get power points instead of slots though. But the opportunity I see Psionics doing is adding a bunch of new archetypes. Yes it's a far cry from a completely new mechanism, but still something. A warrior who uses claws and regenerates as he inflicts damage on his foes is just one example of a Fighter subclass we haven't gotten. The main difference from the Eldritch Knight: a brand new spell list. As another example: I'm hoping against hope we'll finally see a melee-centric class with no reliance on Concentration spells. The big one, of course, is how the Psion nearly doubles the list of "wizard-li...

    Do you know any spells that are useful in forensics or investigation? Has someone made spells that detect blood types or identify toxins or perform other types of detection or identification useful to investigations? Literally, detect poison and disease identifies poisons. Identify will give information on spells affecting the target. Speak with animals or speak with plants give witnesses. Speak with is an obvious choice. Detect thoughts. Locate object.

    I had forgotten about Mahasarpa, it is a fun setting, takes full advantage of the 3E rules, and it really should be part of the Forgotten Realms. Well given Roukugen is no longer a D&D setting, putting it in FR makes the most sense, but the question then becomes where in FR do you put it, and what changes to Mahasarpa do they have have to make to have it fit 5e and the Forgotten Realms?

  • 07:25 PM - Celebrim quoted Samloyal23 in post Unseen, Subtle Magic
    I am thinking if the effect is not visible, the component hand waving and chanting just looks like mumbo-jumbo to a layperson who knows nothing about magic. Also, think about a spell cast while concealed or simply far away. I think that this is about as likely as a zombie apocalypse breaking out in real life and people not immediately recognizing it as a zombie apocalypse. In a setting where magic is real - or even just believed to be real - any hand waving or chanting looks like magic to the observer, even if it is meaningless mumbo-jumbo. And perforce, anyone that goes around muttering to themselves or otherwise saying things in public people don't understand is very likely to be thought of as a hostile spell-caster, and lynched on the spot. In the real world, where hardly anyone believes in magic, when a door closes or opens with no apparent cause, the first thing we think is that we didn't close it well and "the wind must have blown it open". In a world with magic, the first thi...
