  • 12:05 AM - Connorsrpg mentioned Magistus71 in post EN5ider #29: As Good As His Blade: A Dozen New Weapon Properties
    Gillywonka, Moorcrys, ilsundal, dwayne, or anyone else. I singled you guys out b/c you said you had tired or were going to try these. I am just interested in some specific playtest feedback. Cheers. BTW. Magistus71. I (and another member of our group), had a go at some armor properties, but most seemed lame, or just cancelled out weapon properties, which to me just opens up a cyclic arms race. The weapon qualities already represent how they work with armor. Doing the reverse seemed kind of silly. If interested, here is a link to the brief discussion on our forums, as to why this has not taken off: http://connorscampaigns.wikidot.com/forum/t-1310834/armor-qualities. If you have more to add, I am listening ;)

  • 05:55 PM - BookBarbarian quoted Magistus71 in post Idea for D&DBeyond
    I'm a little upset, that the Critical Role people are now using D&D Beyond, we can pretty much be sure that none of them are paying for a subscription and are probably getting everything free, since they are getting sponsored by it, and do an add placement for it at the beginning of every show now. The other day on a televised sporting event I saw players drinking Gatorade. We can pretty much be sure that none of them are paying for it and are probably getting it free, since they are getting sponsored by it, and do an add placement for it at the beginning of every game.

Why would this upset you? What's wrong with the situation?

  • 11:38 AM - Lanefan quoted Magistus71 in post Ok I have to ask..... what's with the Paladin hate on here?
    Paladins in 5e are not restricted to the Lawful Good alignment any longer, they can be any alignment they like.Have any of you seen or designed or heard of Paladin Codes of Conduct or similar for alignments other than LG? For LG it's easy to base such a thing on the medieval Code of Chivalry, but for other alignments...??? Lanefan

  • 03:25 PM - Caliban quoted Magistus71 in post Desperately need help, trying to catch up to party.
    I wish people would stop saying it's built around the Point buy/standard array. It is not people the rolling method is the rule, and the array is the optional methos, as written in the rule book. And I wish people would actually check the rules before saying this, since it's untrue. If you care to read the rules in the PHB , both rolling and standard array are the default method (PHB, page 13, 2nd paragraph). Point buy is under "Variant: Customizing Ability Scores" on the same page. The standard array is simply the average result of "roll 4d6, keep 3". If you have a party full of characters with ridiculously high stats, then it is incredibly unlikely they were generated with the default rolling method.

The standard array is just as much the default rule as rolling is. It is point buy that is listed as a variant. The reason people say that it is built around the standard array is that having a max of +3 means that the character has somewhere to progress with ASIs. If all the characters start with 20s there is nowhere to go. If a table rolls they should definitely not use feats because there is no real choice. Feats should be taken every time. Also, with bounded accuracy even a +2 to all things is a huge deal. I used to love rolling for stats and HP. I won't do either in 5e. It just doesn't work. HP is even worse. A low HP character is KO'd very quickly, and their party will likely soon follow.

It is not people the rolling method is the rule, and the array is the optional methos, as written in the rule book. 4d6 dropped the lowest will, on average, give you scores in the same range as the standard array, so yeah, so balancing around 4d6 is the same as balancing around the standard array ...Yet somehow people end up with supper high stats. Interesting hmmm? It's *not* balanced around 4d6 drop the lowest try 5 times in a row wink wink nudge nudge.

    I am enjoying your posts, thank you for telling us about it. Well, thank you for the thread to spark all of this up again. hahaha. Let's see what I can pull out of ye olde Steeldragons' Bag o' Orean Stuff for you today...Where were we? hmmm. Let's really try to get political geography out of the way and then move on to some more fun things (like past and present adventuring locales, Big Bads, and campaign/adventuring companies. ;) Steelddragons' World of Orea: Regions & Nations (hopefully the final installment thereof), PART IV (is it?) MOVING ON from the sprawling seat of just young human kingdom of Grinlia, we shift east into the inhospitable north [at least the most northerly any humans have ever explored or settled. ;) ]. Gorundu: Similarly sized -at least for rough square miles- to the Arm of Tyris, this region is called by most learned of the realms by its indigenous name, the Gorundu. Endless tracks of wilds, icy moors, wooded and rocky hills, and rolling and sloping tundra that spra...

    Not what I was expecting, I thought you were going to say like Krull, or Hawk the Slayer, the cheesy fantasy movies of the time. They inspire certain general themes, but there's very little to take from them that will stand out among the other general fantasy elements.

    How so, or which movies? Lets see: Virus-like eldritch horrors ala The Thing. Name-magic and an obnoxious "ghost with the most". Dream-traveling demons Nightmare on Elm Street style. Minor monstrous creatures that start out cute and fluffy. An area of the world slowly ceasing to exist among other various elements from Never Ending Story. A puzzlebox that connects to/contains a demonic realm of pain. Probably got some 90's movies in there too.

    Care to elaborate? Well, it's a bit of a work-in-progress, so I don't have a great summary handy, but this is what I use to set the tone: 91959
  • 01:01 AM - Morrus quoted Magistus71 in post Chaosium Announces Upcoming Community Creator Program Called Miskatonic Repository
    Seems to be the current trend to do this. But I like the idea, allows us to see a wider range of things for our favorite games, Yup. I've done it, too.

    So what is it that makes your homebrew special over one that can be purchased? MonsterTown!
  • 08:21 PM - doctorbadwolf quoted Magistus71 in post What makes your homebrew setting special?
    So what is it that makes your homebrew special over one that can be purchased? Basicly tell me about your homebrew campaign setting. A few key things are different, within two broad categories. That is, things that are different because I wanted to try something new, and those which are different bc I tried to build the world without any “a dnd world must have X”. One quick example each. The world is better than its ever been. There is very little sense of a lost golden age, and what sense there is is purely delusional. The great empires of the past were less free, less prosperous, and less advanced than the current age. There are very few humans, and amongst races with humanesque ethnic phenology, “whiteness” is pretty rare, and the world is much less influenced by western medieval Europe. The main European influences are 10th-14th century Spain and Byzantium.

    So what is it that makes your homebrew special over one that can be purchased? Basicly tell me about your homebrew campaign setting. Well, for starters, it's "mine." lol. Anything I want to can happen there. Things (any races, classes, alignments, deities, kingdoms, creatures, etc. ad infinitum) can be there or not. Things can change on a micro or macro scale as a campaign or PC requires [or the DM, myself] wills. I'm not sure what else there is that is "special" about anyone's homebrew. Making things more or less "traditional D&D" or "by the book/Forgotten Realmsian" or "wahoo/out there" with tons of weird races or super-narrow class options or making it a world of clashing elemental planes or invasions of giant invisible space hamster ninjas or whatever doesn't make a homebrew any more (or less) "special" than the carefully crafted internally consistent Tolkienesque world or some GreyBlackhawkmoorish "gritty low-/rare-magic." So "special" isn't really a knowable quantity...or quality...

    Would love to see this converted to 5e and shared. :) Yeah, BadAxe Games did some really cool stuff back in the 3e days. I don't own the rights to the scenario, but I'll check with Ben to see if he minds.

    At the end of the adventure, did you do the reveal who the BBEG really was by ripping the mask off him the at the end? :) Of course, it wouldn't have been a Scooby-Doo mystery if he didn't have a magic (cursed) mask that let him do some ghostly things. Although they did figure out about halfway through what was going on; probably had something to do with my "random teleport to a different door in the hallway" scene. :uhoh:
