    As long as the rogue has bleach blond spiked hair, I'm a huge fan of Triple D.

    This. I have the Essentials Kit, and it's really just stat blocks for the basic three sidekick types plus a table to show how they advance when they level up. It's about two pages total. The UA article is much more detailed/in depth.

    I've been thinking the same, taking it to level 5, then multiclassing as a Divine Soul Sorcerer (or perhaps start as the Sor). Would have to be an Scourge Asimar of course...:)

  • 05:14 PM - CleverNickName mentioned Lidgar in post Critical Role Kickstarter Predition Game: Guess the Funding Outcome (GTFO)
    Lidgar took the lead last night, but I don't think he can hold on to it for much longer; it looks like mortwatcher will overtake him on Thursday. Kickstarter pledges have slowed down dramatically in recent weeks, falling from about $100K/day to around $55K/day. But don't be worried. Even at that "slow" rate, they will reach their final stretch goal in another 6 days. (I know that $55K/day feels small compared to the craziness of a few weeks ago, but that is still a huge amount for any Kickstarter project.) My spreadsheet predicts a final result of $9,715,346, and that PabloM will win by a very narrow margin. But my spreadsheet doesn't account for a last-week crush, and my gut tells me the final amount will be closer to what SkidAce predicted. (And Kicktraq thinks Yardiff will win.) Only time will tell!

  • 07:05 PM - OB1 mentioned Lidgar in post TftYP - Running Sunless Citadel
    Lidgar - Decided against using the rest variant for a couple of reasons. One is that I felt like the Sunless Citadel was going to be difficult enough without it, and I preffered to have a ticking clock prevent them from simply long resting after every encounter. I think with the variant rule it would actually encourage that even more. Secondly, my group has just gotten used to the idea as player HP being a measure of stamina in combat, and that 0 HP means that you have let down your guard and are now vulnerable to a killing blow. So in that sense the 5e rules make a lot of sense. Finally, the dungeon turned out to be plenty challenging without using the variant, and my first rule of home brewing is to not alter the rules unless absolutely necessary. I touched on it before, but enemies using cover consistently really changed the difficulty level of some of the encounters. The bloated one was a super easy fight for the players, as the rats didn't use cover. Compare that to the fight wit...

  • 06:12 AM - Hriston mentioned Lidgar in post Assassinate
    ... Then you'll see that it is not the round that makes you surprised, it is only being unable to move and take actions until the end of your turn. Nothing says that, however. I was just riffing off Lidgar's reference to the Spoon Boy scene from The Matrix. Obviously, as it say in the rules, it is being unaware of the presence of your opponents at the start of combat that makes you surprised.

  • 05:51 AM - Mercurius mentioned Lidgar in post Board Games with "D&D feel" for kids
    Thanks all, some great suggestions. I guess I'm going back and forth between Dungeon and Talisman, leading more towards Talisman. It looks prettier, plus maybe not as "combat only." But I might get both. Descent looks awesome but is probably a couple years away. Lidgar, we've got Labyrinth - good fun.

  • 06:24 AM - txshusker quoted Lidgar in post The Ranger
    I am running one right now, human hunter archetype with the dual wielding feat. Dexterity based. He is the "glass cannon" in the group, dishing out the most damage per round, but not as resilient as the barbarian (no surprise there). Hunter's Mark coupled with the Colossus Slayer ability is just downright nasty - with dual wielding rapiers, dealing about 24 hp a round at 4th level. And as others have mentioned, can heal too (though not very effectively). Steeldragon is correct about the spell casting - very limited spell slots make resource management a priority. But the spells are quite powerful. I just started running my ranger and was using this combo. The thing I find with the spells are that the combat spells run much like the 4e ranger powers (no, not the 4e power rangers) because the spells that add damage to attacks are bonus actions, not full actions. It plays very much like a Ranger striker in 4e. The other spells available - outside of a heal - are more out of combat/e...

    Same with the NPC druid in the MM. No dex bonus added with Barkskin, just AC 16. Agree with others that this spell shines for shapechanging druids. Which makes me wonder why they bothered to include it on the Ranger spell list, but perhaps it is for those wonky-strength based rangers... Animal Companion is why on Ranger's list? I guess we'll go with the MM version of the spell. No additional bonuses. Mainly for Wild Shape and Animal Companion.

  • 10:40 PM - Sacrosanct quoted Lidgar in post Cost/Benefit Analysis of True Strike
    But that is at the expense of losing an extra attack. As written, you must use an action to cast True Strike, then get an attack as a bonus action (by 5th level, you get to attack twice when you take an attack action). Still, that's a value that often gets overlooked. There are several times where you might want one attack at advantage vs. 2 attacks without it. Depends on the situation.

  • 10:58 PM - Umbran quoted Lidgar in post Rcvd Monster Manual today from Amazon - Ink Smeared Pages (Gargoyle/Genie)
    Just think, in another 50 years these bad batches will be sought after as uber-rare collector pieces! I got mine today. No smearing on the gargoyle. However, there is one oddness... The cover on mine is on backwards and upside down. I kid you not. I opened the package, took it out, and opened by book, and found myself looking in the Appendix, with all the pages upside down. The book is otherwise fine. The pages all look okay. Just the cover got flipped around. It otherwise seems perfectly usable. I am wondering if I want to send it back, or keep hold of it as a conversation piece. :) Or, I could actually argue that every monster in my campaign is a nilbog....

    Thanks for the update Reynard. Would be interested in hearing if anyone else picked these up and their thoughts. How is the art? Traditional DCC-type art, or more closely matching what is on the covers? Glitterdoom review

  • 05:35 PM - outsider quoted Lidgar in post Elves subrace?
    Back to OP's question - what are the sub races in the PHB for elves? Is it: 1. High Elf 2. Wood Elf 3. Drow Elf Any Wild Elf? A quick list of other sub races (dwarf, halfling, etc.) would also be appreciated. I am sure it is in the huge "Finally" thread somewhere, but I failed my Investigation check...:P High Elf, Wood Elf, Drow Elf are your choices. Wild Elf is noted as an alternate name for Wood Elf that is used in the Forgotten Realms(as is Forest Elf and Green Elf).

  • 10:30 AM - andreww quoted Lidgar in post so, mountain dwarf wizards...
    Based on my very limited play, I don't see an armed and armored wizard having some big advantage. With at-will cantrips, most melee/ranged weapons seem a bit pointless - my elf wizard with a longbow and longsword never touched them. And armor - if you plan to be getting into the fray, OK, but why when you can stand back and blaze away? Ranged weapons exist. Also from what we have seen 5e lacks much of the movement control abilities and options which 4e handed out to the defender classes making it hard to screen your ranged characters from melee if the enemy chooses to target them. Given how common a trope "gank the mage" is I wouldn't rely on being able to sit at the back and blaze away. Given that you can also only have 1 buff spell up at a time and that many of the battlefield control spells are also Concentration spells you also cannot necessarily rely on avoiding melee through things like greater invisibility or flying. Monster damage in 5e looks like it is high. In my recent test t...

  • 04:44 AM - Sonny quoted Lidgar in post SRD5 - A Clone of Part of D&D 5E Basic
    So ends an interesting foray into the bizarre. I'm just glad it ended before any trouble could come of it. Artificer: Your heart seems to be in the right place, and I'm sorry if the response isn't what you hoped, but thank you for listening to the people here and taking their advice to pull the site. I've dealt with enough affiliates and partners on YouTube to know that people are often confused and misunderstand the various Open Source licenses for art, music, code, (and games) that proliferate the internet. I've seen too many people run afoul of copyright law even when they were sure they were abiding by the letter (if not the spirit) of the license. I hope you don't beat yourself up about it.
