    Here I thought I was supporting you. Which is what I said. I used brackets since, as you know, no other belief system is explained only in the proficiencies section of a class. This has nothing to do with my point about it being sloppily implemented. If it requires an after-the-fact, internet-only correction (not errata), then it's not a rule. Here we will disagree. <snip>

    All the theory about what makes a druid aside, the rule is poorly implemented on a mechanical basis: It is only a qualification in "proficiencies" which is the wrong place. It's not about proficiencies, but (apparently) about a druid's beliefs. The stipulation was included for legacy reasons, without much thought. We know that because: * the wording does not make clear which armors are...

    "I'll get the fires" shouts Tommi to Angis and the rest, as he tries to lob his third stone into the remaining Hobgoblin. ROund 3. Attack, with advantage (help from Orb): better of and . If a hit, damage = (with Sneak Attack). Move: Tommi will linger behind to put out the fires, now that he knows that works. Even if it takes 2 rounds, he can catch up with dash later, and putting out the...

    This has been sitting here for a while, so I will offer a few thoughts. A crossbow build is fun, and wanting to be capable in melee is a good limit on yourself. You're plotting out to level 20, but the reality is you won't be playing at 20 for most of the game. Are you starting at 1? Do you know how high the campaign is likely to go? Sometimes a great level-20 build means a dull level 5-10,...

    I'm on a MacBook, and the maps are too small for me to see until I drag them to my desktop. Which is easy, and then I can expand to full size. Not a complaint, but a possible assist for anyone struggling.

    Multiclassing is the optional rule, so the base interpretation of Magical Secrets has to make sense without it. Now add the multiclassing: is there anything in the way multiclassing is worded that would make you change the interpretation of magical secrets? No. Therefore, you can only take up to a 5th level spell. (That would be my argument)

    It's not that the map is hard to read; it's just when there's no one in place, if I presume Tommi has sneak attack, it puts pressure on other players to move a particular way. I often make it conditional, and keep the roll separate, but even then it seems clear. I thoguht that using Druidcraft would (a) avoid that, and (b) possible be a fun way to prevent the bridge burning. At best, Tommi...

    Halo of spores already does necrotic damage, doesn't it? I would leave it like that. The effect lasts ten minutes (100 turns); I really think using an action to activate it is fine -- most of the time, players will activate it before combat starts, so really you are talking about re-activating it, and surprise situations. I would not suggest this. Symbiotic entity adds necro damage to Circle...

    Seeing the vine sieze Chrysagon, Miss Imogen's first thought was whether this was the same thing - the same creature? - that had just submerged in the river. How do you fight a root system, she wondered, as her hand hesitates over the quiver. No. She doesn't pull another arrow. Reaching out, she feels the moisture in the soil around the plant, the warmth of the loam, and she draws it into...

    It's hard to tell from the map, but is Tommi now in Melee range of the goblins on the bridge, or is there still more than 5' between them. In the former case, he could use his reaction from round 1 to move an additional 15' (as a skirmisher), with no opportunity attacks. In the latter case, he's free to use his sling without penalties. If he moves, it would be retreating 15' (back up the bridge)...

He looks at Sayine and asks "My dear, can you peek at what the spirit is up to from above, let me know if there are kobolds scheming about?".

    True enough -- perhaps it would be better to say that Clerics get a substantially reduced benefit from the spell compared to bards, sorcerers, warlocks, and wizards. [Personally, I agree, and it wouldn't break it to have it apply to attack cantrips with saves. But I do not believe that is what is intended. We can disagree.

    I think that's clear, yes. The feat is not intended for Clerics and Druids. It can be used by them in limited circumstances (High Elf Cleric, for example). In the same way, a Wizard can take the feat and learn Shocking Grasp, even though the cantrip cannot benefit from the other features of the Feat. Yup, but it leaves room for them to add more, as they did with Primal Savagery. As I...

    Yes. No. The spell does not require an attack roll; it allows one. The primary function is to emulate the Light spell (not on the Druid's list), but it can be used as an attack. Yes. This is in XGTE. The absence of attack cantrips for clerics (and ranged attack cantrips for Druids) is one of my personal dislikes, but it was a choice they made and so far they have stuck with it.

    Miss Imogen's arms are tired from the poling she has done, navigating the raft. It's as she is resting that the summons comes, and Chrysagon's alert attention provides the summons to action. "On it," she says, curtly.

    This solution, far from the "natural language" goal of the edition, does solve some edge cases: it means fists cannot be enchanted or silvered as other weapons can), for example. It also means that everyone is proficient with their fists (again, not obviously "correct" but it is a result of the re-wording). I think there's also an optional Disarming attack that needs a weapon (and so not an...

    You need to tell me if I'm down or not, I'm afraid. I wasn't "in melee" when the dragon breathed, but maybe you just mean part of the combat. Rolled a 22 (nat 20+2, but that probably doesn't matter) on the save, and I think the Inflict Wounds would hit. Obviously can't take 60 damage. Maybe you can tell us who's still standing? Thanks!

    What is Hand of Light? I don't know it. Also -- one of the cool things with Ritual Caster is that you don't need Wisdom to choose cleric -- you can take the feat with Cleric rituals, as long as your Intelligence is 13+. (For other cleric things, you want Wisdom, obviously). Except there aren't any Cleric attack cantrips, are there? Sacred Flame doesn't require an attack roll, but a save.

    ... feats here to walk away with your preferred Odysseus (Medium Armor Master is low-hanging fruit for this very purpose). He's pretty damn good at everything though which is, I reckon, very Odysseus. dave2008 you are correct on the longbow thing but I can't fix the post for some reason. :/ To the folks talking about Odysseus' strength and stringing the bow--I have never interpreted or had this presented to me as a feat of strength. It has always been (in my readings and in classics courses and so on) explained as an act of cunning and skill. In that context "stringing his bow like a lyre" is indicative of special know-how and dexterous fingers more than brute force. Maybe I got bunk tellings? Welcome to mythology! :D (I did a quick skim of the full text of the Odyssey to see if I was insane or something, but of the 70 odd mentions of strong/strength in the tale less than a dozen refer to Odysseus' physical strength so I'm thinking I'm not totally off my rocker giving him a 12) Kobold Stew awww this ain't your first rodeo and you *know* I'd have gotten crucified hitting him with samurai, although your reasoning isn't bad.

    Kobold Stew #40 You are right about this. I probably intermix my first Impression which mainly is from a youth book, although one written very close to the actual saga, with the real original. The impulsive stuff i recall come from his behaviour grieving about Patroklos and Briseis, and him dragging Hectors corpse behind his chariot There is one more fact i seem to remember: Although mortal isn't it he was some Kind of demigod? Son of some lesser goddess of the seas?

    Kobold Stew #14 So i did Forget that thing about him being wise in the odissy. Still i believe he achieves this wisdom post mortem. In the iliad he is pictured very impulsive which speaks for low to average scores for int and wisdom. So i think i might correct my above stats to 12 in Int but leave wis at 10. Definitely he has high Charisma though.

    I'd forgotten that Aremus was injured in the last fight. We've been wandering around for awhile, can I have gotten Tranio Kobold Stew to give me a bit of a heal? Looks like I'm down 22 HP. @seriousmoonlight, can he have healed me before we wandered around too far? If not, please heal as soon as you can. Otherwise, IIRC, everyone is still doing pretty well, aren't you all? I think I'm the only one who was beat up, really.

  • 08:08 AM - Paul Farquhar quoted Kobold Stew in post Why the Druid Metal Restriction is Poorly Implemented
    * the wording does not make clear which armors are included; Actually, the rules allow armour (and weapons) to be made of various materials. They don't specify what is made out of what because there is no hard and fast answer. You might find it helpful to look at 3rd edition's more detailed crafting rules if you need a hard and fast ruling about what can be made from what, rather than leaving it to the DM's judgment.
  • 06:20 AM - Ohmyn quoted Kobold Stew in post Why the Druid Metal Restriction is Poorly Implemented
    Here I thought I was supporting you. I wasn't trying to be hostile, and I apologize if it seemed that way. I was simply adding further points that I felt appropriate to add. Which is what I said. I used brackets since, as you know, no other belief system is explained only in the proficiencies section of a class. For example, I wasn't certain of what was being implied with the parenthesis. I thought maybe the bracket was because there is more than one way to interpret what the PHB says, so I felt like clarifying that the Sage Advice confirms which interpretation is official. EDIT: Whoops, forgot to add a note. Let's not give them too much credit here. They didn't explain the belief system in the proficiencies section. They did us even worse. They didn't explain it at all, but rather added a small footnote in the proficiencies section. This has nothing to do with my point about it being sloppily implemented. If it requires an after-the-fact, internet-only correction (not errata), then it's n...
  • 05:19 AM - Ohmyn quoted Kobold Stew in post Why the Druid Metal Restriction is Poorly Implemented
    All the theory about what makes a druid aside, the rule is poorly implemented on a mechanical basis: It is only a qualification in "proficiencies" which is the wrong place. It's not about proficiencies, but (apparently) about a druid's beliefs. To be a bit more accurate, it's not just "apparently" about their beliefs, but RAW it's 100% about their beliefs. That is clarified in the Sage Advice. It is inaccurate to interpret it any other way because the developer confirmed it so. The stipulation was included for legacy reasons, without much thought. We know that because: * the wording does not make clear which armors are included; While true, I would like to add a note for all the naysayers that studded leather is 100% confirmed by the Sage Advice to qualify as not metal armor for the purpose of this belief. This does help support the idea that RAW, it's not armor containing metal, but armor made of metal. Even leather armor that is found would be likely to have metal buckles, as would wooden s...

  • 10:55 AM - Paul Farquhar quoted Kobold Stew in post Wizard archetype needed!
    True enough -- perhaps it would be better to say that Clerics get a substantially reduced benefit from the spell compared to bards, sorcerers, warlocks, and wizards. [Personally, I agree, and it wouldn't break it to have it apply to attack cantrips with saves. But I do not believe that is what is intended. We can disagree. I agree that any "Ranged Spell Attack" is not what was originally intended, but if a Sun Soul monk went to the trouble of picking up the feat to use with Radiant Sun Bolt I would be inclined to allow it. However, I believe it is the original intent that it works with Produce Flame. You can cast it as an attack, and if you do so an attack roll is required. The fact that it can also be used as a light source is irrelevant.

  • 03:00 PM - Paul Farquhar quoted Kobold Stew in post Wizard archetype needed!
    I think that's clear, yes. The feat is not intended for Clerics and Druids. Okay, excessively literal interpretation of loose wording is a valid interpretation of the rules, but there is absolutely nothing to suggest the feat "is not intended for clerics or druids". Given that the feat description specifically mentions clerics and druids, I don't see anything to that would give the slightest reason to suppose that it isn't intended for them. Clerics get higher level spells that have attack rolls, e.g. Guiding Light. Personally, I don't think it would break anything to rule that it applies to any attack of the Ranged Spell Attack type.
  • 02:32 PM - Paul Farquhar quoted Kobold Stew in post Wizard archetype needed!
    No. The spell does not require an attack roll; it allows one. The primary function is to emulate the Light spell (not on the Druid's list), but it can be used as an attack. It's rather splitting hairs - would you rule that Produce Flame cannot get it's ranged doubled with Spell Sniper because you can choose not to attack with it? In my experience, it's usually used as an attack, because someone else has Light. The wording of the feat is wonky anyway, since it specifically says "You learn one cantrip that requires and attack roll. Choose the cantrip from the [cleric] spell list". Which is impossible.
  • 09:14 AM - gyor quoted Kobold Stew in post Wizard archetype needed!
    What is Hand of Light? I don't know it. Also -- one of the cool things with Ritual Caster is that you don't need Wisdom to choose cleric -- you can take the feat with Cleric rituals, as long as your Intelligence is 13+. (For other cleric things, you want Wisdom, obviously). Except there aren't any Cleric attack cantrips, are there? Sacred Flame doesn't require an attack roll, but a save. That is a good point. Hopeful WotC corrects that. Are there any Druid Cantrips with an attack roll?

  • 08:26 AM - doctorbadwolf quoted Kobold Stew in post How do you handle the "economy killing spells" in your game?
    This to me is the central issue. Have your players' characters tried to do this? If they haven't (the focal characters of the world), then why would anyone else? For me the transformative spell is Lesser Restoration -- curing blindness by third-level clerics. When I've tried to play this, it's been frustrated. But it's prepared every day by my clerics and druids. I would love a party to use the spell to attempt to remove blindness and disease from a kingdom or a continent. And every Paladin can cure diseases, at least once per day. Also, Detect Disease and Poison. It identifies the disease. This pretty well inherently means dnd clerics have at least a Paracelsus level of understanding of toxicology. Prestidigitation lets you clean stuff, and make food safe. It’s a cantrip. Shape Water combined with any knowledge of hydraulics means indoor plumbing, good sewage systems, and irrigation. Fantasy world populations are far too low, even if all magic users make up only 1% of t...

    I used to think this as well, but at 50gp a light, I'm not sure it's worth the infrastructure costs. I know as a PC how hard it is to scramble together that much cash for such an item. It's possible, certainly, but it requires a huge up-front investment. I've done the math in a previous post, it *absolutely* is worth it.

It's possible, certainly, but it requires a huge up-front investment. That's a good point. I readily admit to completely missing the component, especially the fact that it is consumed with each casting. That's a lot of rubies that would need to be crushed to light up a town. It could mean that anyone found tampering with them would have to pay a hefty fine if a town or city did set up street lights. I could still see a wealthy town centre having lights but perhaps nothing as elaborate as the street lights that we all take for granted.

    This to me is the central issue. Have your players' characters tried to do this? Yep, my player absolutely did with fabricate. We have both made a gentlemen's agreement. I say he is "very rich", which comes with some perks, he doesn't try to break it. So basically...I handwaved it. But its left a taste in my mouth I don't like, hence the thread.

    So yes, it appears that I have the ability to create some frost and ice. I am still learning what it is I am capable of. This is who I am now." Rodrigo nodded. "My father spoke of men - or women - who did not have the years of study of wizards, or the fierce devotions to gods, who came upon their magical powers suddenly, after contact with a powerful magical event. Such things are not unheard of. Perhaps this is why you were able to reject the ring? I have no such magic, only my training - and my faith in my companions. We'll need every edge we can get in this jungle, and a bit of ice magic doesn't seem like a bad thing in this infernal heat! So... if I may ask... I saw you make a shield of ice.

    Ack! No no no! a. Barkskin is terribly worded, and currently no one really knows what is intended or how the spell is supposed to work. Even if there was a clear sense, though, Barkskin is one of the most concise and straightforward spells in the game. It is perfectly clear how it works. It's just not as powerful as people want it to be.

    ..snip.. The fighter is the pre-eminent nonmagical warrior. Knows weapons and armour The barbarian is fuelled by the rage mechanism. The rouge is defined by skills -- not by combat. If I don't want to play a professional warrior, then rogue is my only option. ..snip.. - Presumably you pick Fighter rather than Rogue for the combat prowess of the base class, in the same way a strength-based rogue picked rogue due to the skill capabilities of the base rogue chassis. ..snip.. <in regards to fighters/barbarians over rogues> They're much better in combat, being tougher, less restricted, and having greater capabilities. But they're nowhere near as good when it comes to versatility out of combat and skill use. - I'm guessing it depends on what you mean by "better". Because you want to play a tricky, skillful character who gets by in combat through dirty fighting rather than being an outright combat monster. I think this is were it strikes me most.

    You've made these points several times now, and so I suspect you think you're not being understood. You are: your points are clear, and we get that your understanding of the rogue requires the use of Dexterity as the main stat. Fortunately, the game supports this view of yours: You are correct sir. But I am also trying to ask for clarification incase I am the one that is confused. (It happens). So I am offering my perspective of what I see and asking for correction in hopes to gain a clearer picture. Some of us, including the OP who has I think been too patient, are interested in the option of a more diverse build. As a class, a rouge could have been many things; instead, it tends to favour Dexterity. The place to break free of that is in the subclass (as can happen with Arcane Trickster). If you're not onboard with the premise, then you obviously aren't going to like the results. But let's try to be constructive. Sure, but understanding the full intent is important to constructive i...

    This is my main objection -- I understand that it allows summoning/restoration and that it means you don't need to feed it; I'd prefer that it just be a regular animal with limited plot immunity (rather than a magical workaround.) What you are describing is a pet though. A familiar is supposed to be something different: Dictionary definition: a demon supposedly attending and obeying a witch, often said to assume the form of an animal.
