    I agree the 4e universe setup was pretty good, but so is Eberron and a lot of the old 2e settings. I like them better than the FR-centered lore of 5e, but I don't really feel like they are "gone." Still easy to use if you want. I actually kind of liked the more-or-less setting neutral take of 3e in that regard. I do miss the lore associated with prestige classes/paths in 3e/4e. That was a nice...

    Unfortunately, rarity isn’t always a great proxy for the desirability of a magic item, so breaking disputes useing an item count won’t always be satisfactory. An auction system would probably be fairer, if a formal mechanism is truly needed.

    As Dave says, you don't need to restrict yourself, any race can be fun with any class. But if you are into optimizing, the Str bonus goes well with fighter, barbarian and paladin. The shell AC might be particularly useful for a barbarian.

    That seems quite reasonable, but your OP includes a much broader statement that "the rules of 5th edition D&D encourage keeping a bad guy alive and then torturing him for information." If that isn't something you are setting out to defend, you might not want to include it.

    Like you saw, the errata clarifies that an unarmed strike is not a "weapon," simple or otherwise. This works pretty well. The weirder thing to me is improvised weapons, which I think are again not, technically, weapons.

    Like BM maneuvers, I don't buy that limited resources like smites are a good balancing point, because you are generally just moving damage around: if you smite this turn, you don't get to smite sometime later. But it is true that if you value nova damage, TWF is better for the paladin and BM fighter. Doesn't much help the barbarian, cleric or bard though.

It is true that paladin etc get better at level 11+ where the extra damage kicks in. But a lot of play happens at levels 5-10. (And just to say, even at level 11, the GWF pally can do 35.7 per round, while TWF does 34. I don't have a problem...

    Here's what get's me. I agree that, with the fighting styles, the level 5-10 GWF and TWF fighters are balanced OK. But from 1-4 the TWF is considerably better, and from 11+ the GWF is better. So you could say, fix 11+ separately, and you don't care about 1-4 because it's over quickly. As for other classes: paladins, war/tempest clerics, valor bards and barbarians don't get the TWF style,...

    I changed it to: you can attack with both weapons simultaneously, as one attack with combined damage. But if you choose to attack with only one weapon, you can later attack with the other as a bonus action. So with two short swords and extra attack, you could attack twice for 2d6 + stat, or three times at 2d6+stat, 1d6+stat, 1d6 (no stat). That balances the damage, keeps some flexibility, and...

    The only reasonable answer is, ask your DM. If you are in a burning building, presumably the DM has already decided how much damage the flames would do if you entered a burning space. That seems like the value to go with. In the torch example, I could see basing it on the torch damage or on what you think the burning fuel would otherwise do. There doesn't have to be a universal answer.

I have done that experiment plenty of time with my kids.

    But you are just assuming that holding my wrist is a grapple. If you don't assume that then there is no reason to apply the grapple rules. It is not an unreasonable position, but it just says something about what you think a grapple means. If you replace "holding my wrist" with "touching my shoulder" then you could make the same argument, but you wouldn't because I doubt you think touching my...

    While it is true that grappling doesn't restrain, I think it is debatable whether it is as simple as grabbing someone's wrist. Arguably it would be hard to keep hold of someone if you only had them by one wrist. I usually picture it as a bit more than that.

    I would rule that since you are touching the grappled creature, it can indeed rely on a sense other than sight. But I don't think the rules are clear cut about it, so you'd have to see what your DM thinks.

    dwayne, I appreciate that you came seeking feedback on the mechanics of your custom race, not the underlying fiction or the presentation. But unfortunately, the existence of more than two genders and how gender relates to sex are far too controversial of topics to reasonably expect this thread not to turn into an argument about that. As well, I understand this is a draft, and you intend to revise spelling and grammar later down the line, but those things very obviously need work now, and people are naturally going to be too distracted by it to ignore it and just give feedback on the mechanics alone. Any time you present a piece of work for public consumption, even if your aim is only to solicit feedback for a particular aspect of that work, you need to be prepared to receive feedback about the work in its entirety, because that’s what you’re going to get. The best way to do that is to make sure that your work is polished to the best of your ability before releasing it publicly, and to accept ...

    dwayne - Thank you for supporting the project! I appreciate it. ccooke - I hope you do choose to back us, if you haven't already. If you did - Thank you, as well. Story is very important to us and we used Arcanis because, well it is our flagship setting as well as having won numerous awards, so it has a special place in our hearts. But you bring up the Screaming Sword's back story as dead weight, so let's look at that: It's basically a sword that houses the soul of a dwarf in a gem affixed to the weapon. Ignoring the whole Arcanis dwarven curse backstory, the story can still track fairly well with just the portion that dwarven souls are being harvested to "power" the blade. You can use these swords to cause emnity between humans and dwarves or just between dwarves and the wielder of the weapon (whether a PC or NPC). Have a group of dwarven clerics and paladins as members of an Order that tracks down these swords and destroys them to release the souls. I can even see a player with a...

    Each on carries part of the total of what is needed to make their life form, like in a recipe each is needed other wise ti will not happen. Note that this is not how such works in on our world. There are many life forms on our world with more than two sexes/genders - but it is not that you need genetic material from each to procreate. It is, instead more a restriction on who you can successfully mate with. Gender A can mate with B. Gender B can mate with A, C, or D. Gender C and mate with B, but not A or D. And so on.

Equally bad. But equally. Seems to me though that once artificial insemination became an available technology for them it would hit their culture like reliable birth control hit our world.

    Each on carries part of the total of what is needed to make their life form, like in a recipe each is needed other wise ti will not happen. That isn't helpful. The Newcomers in Alien Nation had a cool set up where the male impregnated the female in much the normal way, but only during a certain time of year (They had a cool insult which translates to "you mate out of season") because they are very ritual based. But at one point the male starts to develop a pouch and in yet another real cool ceremony they then transfer the infant from the female to the male pouch in which it resides for the other half of the gestation period. It is a way cool deal and it only takes two genders. So when I ask "how do they do it" I am genuinely curious about the methodology.

    Yeah well theirs are real and a fact of biology. How exactly does that work. Please explain as if you were talking to a young child to keep this PG. Don't want this to turn into soft core after all.

    The Pilosus are a very gregarious people who have a very complex society and sexual habits. They can fill all most any role in life but are some of the best diplomats in the galaxy. There is no way to tell one from another as physically as they appearance is universal. Only then going through the Taulpa nichta (loose translation “Sex Dance”) can you really see the difference in the different sexes of their race. My, how woke of you.

  • 06:41 PM - Sacrosanct quoted dwayne in post 'Cure Wounds' is D&D's Most Popular Spell
    since they killed the wizards power because the fighters seemed left out and the warlock was getting his butt handed to him, yes little can be done with the wizard neutered edition of d&d 5th edition as it is. I like the old glass cannon wizard of old, and thank goodness i found a working class some one did on line. People don't play a class any more its dip in this and that and then wonder why they die horribly. Over all i like 5th, less power creep than 3rd x any way but i feel they lost too much of it with the over simplifying of the system. But thank fully for me it's not to hard to fix the crappy parts and the options in the DM guide does help much as well. The thing is most these spells are so low level and most of the mid to high ones i used back in the day are not in the books. What do you mean by "wizard of old"? 3rd edition? Because TSR D&D, the magic users were a lot more "neutered" than in 5e, so it wouldn't make sense be referring to those editions. Between needing to pass ...

    This is what i was talking about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epic_Level_Handbook being over 50 you should have known this. Those "events" don't mean crap to the bigger picture as they may cause a draw but a setting and material would draw much more. If he was talking about some dumb game con thing i would think he would have said that, as this seemed more of a hint. But again i tend to read more into things than most and over estimate the intelligence of people which always disappoint me in the end. Everyone got that you were thinking about that: however, Epic is a specific kind of Adventurers League event held at conventions, which is what is being referenced clearly in the post. The significant thing is that one of WotC preferred conventions is having a big organized play event in an unannounced campaign setting.
  • 02:10 AM - Enevhar Aldarion quoted dwayne in post GameHole Con Hints At An "As Yet Unannounced Setting" for D&D This Year
    Epic is also was used for level above 20 in D&D before some dumb event thing, i really doubt that is what he was talking about here. Here is the full text from Valley's Facebook post: This year, Gamehole Con will feature the following premiere D&D Adventurers League content: • A Liar’s Night (Halloween) EPIC masquerade event written by Elisa Teague and Lysa Chen. • The premiere of an Epic event set in as yet unannounced setting. • The premiere of adventures set in as yet unannounced setting. • The premiere of a Season 9 Epic • The premiere of Season 9 adventures. See how it says Adventurer's League for everything listed?

    Also the word Epic event, might be a hint to rules above 20 and the planes would be a good fit with that as well No, an Epic is a standard style of Adventurer's League scenario. They span multiple tables, and multiple tiers, all playing through the same adventure at the same time, generally with a winning table chosen from each tier at the end. This is all about getting AL DMs for the convention.

    Darksun would make sense as the whole psionics "mystic" class and material would be a major part of the setting. But planescape is on my wish list beside greyhawk and mysteria/ Hollow World on bottom. The Mystic/Psion is still in the Limbo of UA and Happy Fun Hour, though. I’ll believe Darksun is coming when I see a Psion UA that actually performs well in the surveys. Same goes for Eberron and the Artificer.

  • 07:17 AM - MNblockhead quoted dwayne in post WotC Considering NPC Stat Format Change
    Why not just have perforated cards in back with stats on them so you can remove and keep handy with all information. No need to put any thing other than name as all on card in back of adventure or book. Not sure the actual reasons, but my guesses, and my reasons are: They want you to buy the Monster Manual, which is why they only bold the names of monsters from the MM, and only give stats in an appendix for new monsters. It costs more to print special pull-out pages, which means to keep the price point in line with what consumers expect from a 5e adventure hardback, they would have to subtract from the actual adventure content (the story, location descriptions, maps). Pull out materials are hard to keep with the hardback. Many consumers, like myself, find them annoying. Many consumers (like myself) do not want to adulterate our modules to play them. I buy the books to enjoy and read through, but for adventures I run, I run from DnD Beyond or Realm Works. I want to keep my books in nic...

  • 03:29 PM - Lord_Blacksteel quoted dwayne in post Big Changes in ICv2's RPG Industry Charts, as Pathfinder Drops Off Before 2E's Release!
    It would be ok but i have seen this from back at the start of D&D add more and revise oh wait lets re release all the books again and make it annoying to convert so everyone would buy the new ones. D&D started this back with 2nd edition, then 3, 3.5 then crashed it with 4th now with 5th which is so watered down its pathetic from what it was. So the standard is change some core mechanics and re release it as a new updated version resale all to the same people and after a few years or less in some cases do it all over again. Sorry this boy bought into the 2nd and have vast amounts of it, did again for 3rd and stopped at 3.5, I got the basic books for 5th but that's where i draw the line. But go ahead and dish out the money for a product that will be up dated in a few more years, they live off your money. Really all you need is the basic alterations to convert the old stuff or a good imagination and a feel for the rules which is what i use, pathfinder is not my thing but good luckj to all who du...

  • 03:10 AM - Aaron L quoted dwayne in post The New D&D Book Is Called "Ghosts of Saltmarsh" [UPDATED!]
    This was set in Greyhawk The town of Saltmarsh was. I am wondering did they steal this from the original setting to put it in the genericx realms or is it in the setting that is was set in from the start. Given how they transplanted Acererak and Elemental Evil to Fearun, ham-fistedly described ripping Castle Greyhawk from Oerth to float around from world to world, and later gave Evermeet the same shabby treatment being ripped it from Faerun and having it "cast adrift in the planes" as a mystic homeland for all Elves no matter what world they're from (barf), I'm sure the default of these adventures will be Toril. (As well as how they've tried to shoehorn the Weave into the PHB, even though the relationship between the Weave and Mystra was a defining element of the Forgotten Realms that made the setting unique and interesting, and made all Elves 6+ feet tall like 'Realms Elves as part of the Realmsification of all D&D settings. I like the 'Realms, but c'mon. Making these things just Gen...

    funny i gave links to the facts about the adventure being in greyhawk and here you say it is not. But like most facts don't matter to you people now days. Perhaps you missed the sarcasm. He was saying that in truth the Saltmarsh, like many of the early modules is designed more for "your world" than for a particular setting. Sure over the years they have become fixtures of a given setting, but was that how they were intended? Not really
