    When it comes to world building the DM RULES. The DM does not have to give a great reason why a race is banned. Just say it is banned. Then the whiners will whine either “BUT BUT BUT it is an official race in an official book. “ Or “You are a rotten DM, I can’t player my character if you ban X race.

    I wasn't suggesting comma was a RAW "condition", rather a natural language idea that exists in the real world and could be used as an analog in game :) We do know that a character can be unconscious at 0 HP (or dead), and that is what I was implying. That a character could be unconscious, at 0 HP and effectively in a comma since they could not normally gain HP to become conscious. I don't...

    Or would they just be in a comma? i.e. unconscious and unable to become conscious because they can't get (normal) hit points? Hence why I might rule Raise Dead followed by Aid or other temporary hit points would get the character conscious, then either a long rest (if the tempo HP last that long) or Greater Restoration so that they can then take a long rest and regain their hit point max.

    Seems like the character needs a blood donation! (After all, that to me is what the reduced HP max of a vamp is, a blood drain.) I like S'mon 's idea. Sounds like fun to me :) *EG* To me, Raise Dead alone would not be sufficient, after all, the character only would have 0HP. Maybe they would be alive but in a coma until some means is found to raise their HP max. Does that imply RD is needed...

    Eh. The portrayal of D&D as something you stop playing when girls showed up was true to the time period. And the gifting of the D&D books to the younger sister at the end was a positive. Personally I wouldn't worry about it. I think most people are smart enough to realize that much of ST is a period piece. Just like all the smoking is so frequent on the series. It's true to the times, and...

    One of the things I think they need to keep separate is making sure the box sets fill a different niche than the books do. Otherwise they threaten to fracture their market/customer-base.

    Robus swap out the placement of orc and ranger. Does sound fair if the orc is firing an arrow at your ranger for an instant kill? So as some have said by rules, advantage, surprise round etc. BUT if the orc does not matter to the adventure I may MAY give you an instant kill. But instant kills will be rare, or you have lots damage output per hit.

    A technique I learned at a con, tell your players that when their turn comes around if they have already rolled their dice and can tell you something like "I attack the third goblin with my sword, attack total of 16 for 8 slashing damage" then they automatically get to add +1 to their attack roll. This way they are ready to go, and they get a bonus for being ready.

    Also as an outside observer I've wondered the same as the OP. One other aspect that is implied in this discussion but not stated, Is it known that PF1 is no longer sustainable? Was their an evolve or die mandate? I mean it has seemed like for a long time PF just kept publishing more options, more adventures, more content; and that was their model. Did they simply run out of topics/content or...

    I don't envision a single arrow to the chest to always be able kill an orc. Even with they don't see the attack coming. So standard combat rules work just fine. Besides, the orc isn't defenseless, he's just unaware of the threat. Maybe I would allow automatic critical damage, but advantage is probably just fine.

    We played the rules as written (EDIT: or at least as we understood them), and didn't worry about it or try to justify loop-holes. So, no metal armor, no edged weapons, no flaming oil.

    I'm with other, don't weaken Str by making all your stuff Dex based. Keep separate Parkour 'tasks' related to their appropriate skill. (Many/majority will be Dex, but some are Str.) For instance; - running up two close walls, Strength (Athletics). - jumping off a stair case and landing in a small area and not falling, Dexterity (Acrobatics) - jump distances based on Str, landing as desired...

    Yes, at a table with pencil and paper. With digital tools, specifically FG, it is easy to turn on re-rolls and not worry about it. Re-roll init also has other benefits too. Esp. along the lines of limiting metagaming and enhancing the chaos of combat.

    Excellent. Absolutely helps and the type of input I was hoping for. Really helps me narrow it to 2020 or SR 3 or 5. I'll have to read some setting materials to see if I'm comfortable with the races and magic in SR. I also have to say the C-Punk 2077 that is coming out next year might be well timed for me.

  • 03:23 PM - KahlessNestor mentioned jasper in post Please remove Demiplane of Dread Story Award next season
    jasper Your condescending tone doesn’t help any, nor do half your responses. Who cares what you gaming store schedule is? It's not even relevant. Do you know anyone who even still runs S4 content? No one. There's a reason for that. It's because no one wants to lose their character to a stupid story reward. I had 2 characters get locked in because I can't make it every week. It isn't just a portabolity issue. It's also a frequency of play issue. AL needs to be not just portable, but also drop on/drop out. Demiplane of Dread works against both of these core tenets of Organized Play. Story rewards shouldn't undermine the basic core of your program. Reward players who can make it, but don't punish those who can't. Luckily I was abke to buy my bard out of Barovia, but my druid wasn’t so lucky. I had to rely on DM mercy letting me go into DTD debt to play her at a con. Ad now I can't play her and get dinosaur forms because of the damn death curse, another poorly thought out story "reward". S...

  • 05:52 PM - Kobold Boots mentioned jasper in post Are powergamers a problem and do you allow them to play in your games?
    jasper Replying to you this way as your quote tags are messed up so I'd rather be clear than sort that out. 1. Talking is never the best first idea with any problem or most situations. Figuring out the problem is. Reason: Talk without data is opinion and generally a waste of time. 2. If you don't like the person you're gaming with, that's the problem. The power gaming is secondary. 3. If you do like the person you're gaming with and he or she is a power gamer, then the solution is pretty easy. Do the stats, scale the encounters, you're done. 4. Best advice to DMs who think they're scaling things without doing the stats is, "Don't trust your gut" it got you in trouble in the first place and is why you're having the problem. Nuff said here because I offered help and you replied back with something silly, so I'm done with you. Be well KB

  • 03:03 PM - Tormyr mentioned jasper in post Super Monk Jumps
    From the PHB "The effects of different spells add together while the durations of those spells overlap." So if you want a strictly RAW and there is no Sage info on this *snip* As jasper pointed out earlier, Xanathar's clarifies that the proper name of the effect is what is important for determining what stacks rather than the effect itself. So multiple jump spells do not stack, but jump should stack with Step of the Wind. Step of the Wind merely allows the monk to jump as well as a strength fighter at the cost of a ki point.

  • 06:13 PM - Tormyr mentioned jasper in post Super Monk Jumps
    Thanks for the replies everybody. Doesn't look like there's a clear consensus or rule for this. My initial feeling was frustration at what I thought seemed OP. But some of the replies here have changed my mind to allow it at X6. Super Monk Jumping would be super cinematic. jasper makes a good point about both the ring and step of the wind requiring a bonus action. However the jump spell lasts a minute, so the effects could be combined on the next turn.

  • 04:02 AM - Yaarel mentioned jasper in post What is the best way to handle ‘magic resistance’ in D&D 5e?
    Coroc I was wondering about defining 5e magic resistance as verses non-instanteous effects? So magic resistance is vulnerable verses Fireball, because the effect is instantaneous, thus the fire itself is nonmagical. This might require too much bookkeeping to look up whether any particular spell is instantaneous or not. Also, Antimagic Field negates Fireball too, so it seems even instantaneous effects are considered magical. Note, if 5e ‘magic resistance’ is simply a save advantage, then by definition, any spell that attacks AC, like Animate Object, bypasses the magic resistance. Ironically, the magical energy of Eldritch Blast attacks AC, so it might bypass the magic resistance. However Eldritch Blast is a ‘ranged spell attack’, so perhaps magic resistance applies verses ‘spell attacks’. In light of Gnome Cunning, and for the sake of simplicity, I am inclined to say, anything that attacks AC can bypass magic resistance. jasper Looking at 1e Drow magic resistance 50% + 2% per level. I figure, for 5e, advantage is good enough, and stays reasonably balanced.

  • 06:37 PM - Satyrn mentioned jasper in post [5e] Feats, what gives?
    Again, That's just a sleazy player. Maybe I'm lost here, are people who optimize builds, with DM discretion and respect towards the game that everyone agreed to play power gamers, or are people who want perfect munchkins regardless of how the DM and fellow players think and feel power gamers? I don't think feats affect peoples choices anymore than stats or classes do. I think jasper's essentially saying that feats become a tool that -when layered on top of the choices made with stats and classes - provide too many choices for his preferences, that the accumulated number of choices reach a certain threshokd it creates an environment ripe for powergaming - and he doesn't enjoy that. So if you ignore his denigration of the style and preferences he doesn't enjoy, I read him as saying "Feats are the path to the dark side. Feats lead to choices. Choices leads to powergaming. Powergaming leads to suffering." Well, his suffering because it's not the style he prefers.

  • 03:12 PM - LordEntrails mentioned jasper in post The moneyer (a world building article).
    Are you sure about that? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gresham%27s_law Normally, coins are worth *more* than their metal content. If they aren't, they get melted down. Even though it is a "Law" it is only a principal used in economic theory. That's not to say it is wrong, but it is also to say that it is not always true. As soon as the coin becomes substantially more valuable than the metal plus the cost to create it, it will be forged, which will then put pressure on driving the value down. But anyway, my intent is not to debate this. I'm not an expert on it, nor do I care that much about it to research it. All, Interesting topic, but I think that there is more thought and modern impacts being discussed here than most players will ever notice or care about. @jasper, I'm not offering. I thought you said you were getting (from source unspecified) a case of mini's for writing these articles :)

  • 09:56 AM - Lanefan mentioned jasper in post Dealing with a non-disruptive problem player
    ...t any effort into the game outside of scheduled game hours make it tough to run things for him, too (and I never ask for too much, and always give weeks to provide it.)You don't make clear whether this player has the time outside the game, or whether his life is particularly busy. If he really hasn't got the time, that's some slack you'll have to cut him. Every story has to be address his 'mercenery' motivation or it doesn't happen. The party can never choose to be heroic, as he just wants to get paid.This one is simpler. The party can choose* to be heroic-but-unrewarded if they like and let Sassy either come along or roleplay herself out of the party, who then go and recruit his new character. * - have some lawful type in the party insist on putting what the party does next to a vote. And if Sassy does come along, you-as-DM can always make sure that there's a reasonable haul of treasure to be found in process of Doing Heroic Deeds. It doesn't have to be either-or. :) Unlike jasper however, I'd suggest having a word with him sometime about trying a few different character concepts as Sassy sounds like it's getting old.

  • 06:46 PM - Hawk Diesel mentioned jasper in post New Action Type for more cooperative battles
    jasper Hex only affects ability checks. Does nothing against Saving Throws. And yes, I agree that players can talk tactics and should. But if you have new players or ones that don't really know how to do that, the mechanics don't really support a team work dynamic. There are roles, and people stick within their roles. This is a way to mechanically support working together. As for the Tactical Action Surge (I believe that is the one you were asking clarification about with the tank), everyone would get advantage until the Fighter's start of their turn. Action Surge is a powerful ability. If a fighter is willing to forgo their normal benefit to use it, I believe the new benefit should be equal to the sacrifice, since a fighter gets a max of 2 action surges per short rest by level 20.

  • 05:59 AM - Challenger RPG mentioned jasper in post 6 Ways to Force Stuff on your Players
    @Bagpuss : I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the article. The idea was from a friend and I don't think I fully did it justice. Because I didn't fully understand it, I ended up making jokes and probably not being very helpful. Your suggestions are excellent. I particularly like the geography idea for its simplicity and effectiveness. @jasper : Ha ha, I've done that a few times myself. I sit down and tell the players, "Here's what we're doing tonight, take it or leave it." Everyone always seems to be cool with that. They seem to object more to getting forced into things without any input from the GM whatsoever. @Hand of Evil : I really like these methods and systems. Particularly Action/Reaction which I've been using in my games for a long time. I really like the define good and evil suggestion. That's something I've never done before, but it seems like a given in retrospect. It's hard to expect people to follow rules when you don't even tell them what those rules are. Thanks for the cool ideas!

DON'T do Joint a campaign. Read some 1e Modules. They are magic heavy. If you have more than 1 DM in the group by the time the group runs through them twice, people will have multiple magic items.

I didn't really mind gnomes as tinkers in DL, but I've had a standing rule for roughly 25 years that gnomes in any other setting spontaneously atomize if they start playing with tech, especially tech that fails for comic effect. If you want to play a gnome, you cast illusions, talk to squirrels, and play practical jokes. Unless it's Eberron. In Eberron, gnomes are creepy little Stazi informers with a monopoly on the phone company.

    I totally found the Dragonlance was responsible for everyone thinking gnomes = tinkers.I'd argue that it was Warcraft, but perhaps Warcraft took their approach from Dragonlance.

IRL, without insects, humanity wouldn't exist. In game, with the Staff of Swarming Insects, some evil baddies would no longer exist due to a much cooler means than the common Fireball or Lightning Bolt. <sigh>

    Oh look. Is that Halfling Cute with her Goth look and punk hairstyle. How 80s. Barf. To each their own -- still beats the 1970's "obese hairy-toed children" or the D&D5 Funko POP! halflings. :)

    Elf and half elf. How many varieties of elf are there? Heinz 57 company has less flavors. Baskin-Robbins 36 Ice flavors bow down in the varieties of elves. Hell they call themselves Vulcans and sneaking onto starships now! They hog movie screen time and force directors to come up with more reasons their minor character should have movie screen time. Hell Will Ferrell could be one. Tiefling pretty please can I play a demon. Um I mean a fiend. I wouldn't use all the demon abilities. Many cases of beer layer. Yes you can play one. Dragonborn. See Tielfing but swap out demon with dragon. Are you advocating eliminating Romulans from D&D?

    How many times did Faceman, Mad Dog Murdock trick B.A? This is game where your actions and choices have results. Choose to play the dumb barbarian it sucks when you and Bob can not roleplay the situation out and I have to call for roll. Player agency the get of jail free card of D&D. Aka I not going to do that. I read that one as B.A's player saying at the start of the game "I'm gonna play a combat monster who's sort of stubborn and obnoxious - you guys figure out ways to get to go along for the fun of it" - and then the players had fun trying to see how they could outdo themselves over the last time in getting the B.A. to go along - and everyone thought it was great. It wasn't that the other players were controlling the dumb barbarian - the player stated upfront that is what he wanted to do. So no "Get out of jail free card". Note that kind of situation came up in a game I was in. Everyone at the table loved it.

    Um. Um. No. Repeat after me. "Occasionally the monster wins!". A quick reset nerfs the monster. True but the idea is to have fun. That takes priority. Leaving a player's character with zero Int is un-fun. This is actually worse than the PC dying.

    I wonder what the other wands are doing tonight. "The same thing they do every night, Pinky..." 103449 "...casting another copy of the same spell. Again. For the third time."

    I have to disagree with Pauln6. I think stringing his bow was either a trick. Or a special attuned item which only allow him to string it. Stringing the bow was definitely a feat of strength in the myth, so Pauln6 is right on that count, but I think this is a good way to represent it in D&D without over-inflating his STR stat. ^^^Not my comment. Not sure what's going on but will address yinz tomorrow! --MM

  • 09:08 PM - Celebrim quoted jasper in post When did mixing editions become unusual?
    Guys, gals, and orcs. It was dirt simple to figure out Thac0. Jasper rolls 4d6 times removes the lowest. Rolls 5 d6 for his 5th level thief. Writes 10 to -10 across the bottom of his note book paper. Grabs Celebrim's dm screen and copies the row. Err, Celebrim grabs his DM screen and makes one row for each weapon Jasper wields. Then he grabs the Weapon vs. AC table from the Unearthed Arcana, modified the rows accordingly, factors in any magic item bonuses and adjustments for STR or DEX and now I know exactly what Jasper needs to hit anything without looking it up. I do this for each PC, then I binder clip the new sheet of tables to the DM screen over the top of the underlying 'to hit' tables for reference to create a set of tables that represent the actual PC's in the game without any need to cross reference anything. Adjust the tables occasionally as they get new gear or their THAC0 changes. Players can off course do the same, but since I don't normally tell them the armor class and armor (class) bonus of the opponent they are fighting, it...
