  • 10:04 PM - dragonfriend7738 mentioned Koloth in post Player vs Player PC death
    Koloth The party hasn't been together since level one, and the cleric is the only expressly good aligned character in the party (the rest are varying degrees of neutral.) We're a group of active duty military players, and our schedules make it so that we can't always game together. The fighter (and the ranger) joined the party while I (the cleric) was away from the party due to work. They had about 2-3 months of sporadic gaming without the cleric, (about 2 weeks in game time.) Of the 3 original players, there's just the CN bandit and the cleric left, which is why I'd like to think most of the party would back me, but there's no guarantee. And as I stated earlier, the character is only suspicious because of the lie and the proximity of the corrupting artifact. His CG nature is heavily based on freedom of choice, and so he doesn't use divination spells to pry secrets. He definitely can and will send messages to his church about the events and try to talk to the rest of the party about t...

  • 04:40 PM - Cody C. Lewis mentioned Koloth in post D&D Does Digital Part III: PDFs
    Koloth Good question. I obviously do not have the answer, but as much as I would hope that they would make more money by offering PDFs (thus encouraging them to do so) I don't believe there is any doubt that 5e is a smashing success. I just hope that because they have tasted success that they do not feel a need to produce their material in a digital format is a low priority at the moment.

  • 05:06 PM - Cody C. Lewis mentioned Koloth in post D&D Does Digital Part III: PDFs
    Maybe I should clarify a point: I am personally in support of releasing PDFs first and foremost. I suggest an app as a compromise. We all want PDFs, but the game is coming up on a year and the only PDFs we have available are either ones that someone else has scanned and have been pirated, or ones that we have taken the time to scan ourselves. So if the options presented to me are those, nothing, or an app; I would choose the app every time. delericho See my above response. I agree with you. But we aren't getting that as it stands. So it does appear that right now, Wizards is in fact, doing nothing innovative. Koloth 1.) Absolutely right. The app would have to noninvasive. 2.) Why couldn't the app be set to download to your device like the books I read on Kindle? So what you're saying is the app would have to have few to no permissions and allow you to download the books to your device, not supported through the cloud, and you would be interested? Or is there a third objection? darjr see the above two responses. I think the app is the only clear solution to allowing us to have the information in a 'take with us anywhere' digital format. Any app done would have to be: Downloadable to the device, not based off of a cloud service Available for ipad/iphone, android & windows at launch Nonintrusive Reasonably priced (Either sub based or hard purchase) Well constructed, both in design and functionality

  • 11:40 AM - Bitbrain quoted Koloth in post Full Stats for Infernal War Machine from Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus
    Hope they clean up the rules before publishing. Any size requirement/limitations for Stations? Can a Pixie operate one as well as a Human as well as a Giant? *snort* tiny Pixies driving huge Mad Max-type war machines. 😎 I'm giving XP for this, as it is exactly the kind of "Stupid Awesome" idea that I love about Dungeons and Dragons. I was already planning on including these constructs in my upcoming Eberron game as part of the Lord of Blades' forces, but now I'm DEFINITELY going to include a group of tank-piloting pixies mutated by the Day of Mourning into his organization.

  • 12:31 AM - Hussar quoted Koloth in post Who Killed the Megaverse?
    IMO, Tolkien gets too much source credit for critters in D&D. Elves, Trolls, Dwarves, Pixes, etc all existed prior to The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Of course, Hobbits are pretty much his creation which explains the recasting of Hobbits in D&D into Halflings after lawyers got involved. I think some of the linkage came because of the animated Hobbit and incomplete LOTR movies that came out around the time D&D was getting started. People saw the movies and assumed they were the prime source for many D&D critters. Of course, for a weird take on a mix of tech and fantasy, hard to top the movie Wizards. Sigh. Why is invoking Tolkien on RPG sites the equivalent of Godwinning a thread? Cue the multipage flogging of the dead horse as folks try to "prove" how much Tolkien chocolate is in their D&D peanut butter. -------- I have to admit, I'd LOVE to see the return of the weird to D&D. Never minding Barrier Peaks, there's at least one other crashed spaceship in Greyhawk. That was...

  • 07:11 AM - vanquish3000 quoted Koloth in post Long time DM, first time player. Need help choosing a race and "DNA" ability scores.
    Baring some pre-campaign limitations from a DM, the race of a character should be up to the player. In the OP's case, if they want a 1/2 elf, its a 1/2 elf. Just assume the elven genes were dominant. If the player wants a human, then assume the elven genes were recessive. Didn't see any game system mentioned but consider taking some feats, traits, advantages, etc that clarify the character's dominant heritage. These choices should influence any children the character has going forward. 105423 Using a dominant genes vs. recessive genes method; My PC is 57% Chondathan / 43% Grugach with STR 16, DEX 14, CON 14, INT 12, WIS 15, CHA 11. I think this infomation is a good start for making Arden a half-elf and it feels more "organic" than meta. P.S. comments and criticism welcome. (I hope you understand the data and like the format)

    "Example: Borf is a chaotic neutral, non-binary shield dwarf berserker with darkvision out to a range of 60 feet." Maybe it is too early in the morning and not enough tea but WTF is a 'non-binary shield dwarf'? Did a 2 get into a Boolean logic discussion? While the new format seems easier to read, can it be spotted quickly while scanning a block of text as players are waiting for the DM to describe who they are dealing with? The () can make a string of stat text stand out from normal text. It's a way to virtue signal to all of the other far left wing political activists that your product is designed to meet all the criteria of far left wing politics. It's also a monumentally stupid way to get your product line shut down due to poor sales. We know from Harvard's recent study that far left wing political activists are approximately 8% of the population, and the left is 32%. So somewhere towards the end of this year someone is going to have to explain to coorporate why dropping...

  • 01:54 AM - Greenstone.Walker quoted Koloth in post Roll20's 4M Accounts Hacked
    What can you do? 1. Don't use passwords that show up on the top 100 most commonly used passwords list. 2. Use more then 8 characters for your password. 3. Ask sites that currently require account name = email address to change. QFT. Also: 4. DO NOT REUSE PASSWORDS! If an attacker gets mickey@disney.com, password abc123, from a hack of roll20.net then they will try that same username and password on Ebay, PayPal, Yahoo, MSN, ....... 5. Do not store any of your credit card details online. It's a hassle having to type it in each time, but that hassle is worth it to stop identity theft.

  • 04:00 PM - VengerSatanis quoted Koloth in post RPG Writer Zak S Accused Of Abusive Behaviour
    ...d or disrespecting women. Especially, years later. Actual harassment is unwarranted and probably illegal (depending on circumstances). The women accusing Zak S. are revealing their own personal interactions with him. I don't believe the accusers' motivation was to hurt his career. If that were the case, then releasing this a month or two ago when he was seeking funding for his Demon City kickstarter would have been a hundred times more advantageous. Regardless, some of the allegations have been corroborated by Zak S' former partner, Patrick Stuart, here: http://falsemachine.blogspot.com/2019/02/you-should-read-this.html Many in the RPG community/hobby/industry have run afoul of Zak S. (myself included), and I think it's extremely easy for some of us to believe that behavior occurred beyond a shadow of a doubt. Lastly, to not even read the accuser's public statement before commenting because you "avoid Spybook as much as possible". Well... that just doesn't sound very smart, Koloth. It leaves your argument, and your credibility in this matter, looking rather flimsy. VS

    And having members of a group that enjoy the parliamentary process more then actually getting things done is far too common. Been part of such a group. Seems a common trait among gamer types. Quelle suprise! We refer to certain gamer types a s"rules lawyers" for a reason. You give people who like playing with rules a set of rules, and they will play with them!

  • 06:04 PM - LogosKaiMysterion quoted Koloth in post Mearls on RPG Art
    Fast test. Which cover art suggests action and adventure vs a boring reference tome. The cover of Pathfinder V1 Core Rulebook or the cover of D&D V3.5 Players Handbook? (This isn't to deride the Pathfinder cover, just to defend the 3rd edition cover). Third edition still suggests action and adventure, but in a different, subtle way. Familiarity with 3rd edition has bred contempt for it as a "boring reference," but imagine what it was like to see it for the first time in 2000, a time of uncertainty for D&D after the transition to Wizards of the Coast. WotC went for something different than the usual "here's artwork of adventurers," it went with something that looked like an in-game artifact of a fantastic but grounded quasi-medieval world. Those tomes promised of a world of adventure to find such artifacts, a world of epic adventure, intrigue, and combat. And what's more, it had a level of production value and detail that wasn't possible before. The tomes, with their detail, was a micro...

    Fast test. Which cover art suggests action and adventure vs a boring reference tome. The cover of Pathfinder V1 Core Rulebook or the cover of D&D V3.5 Players Handbook? Which one suggests opening an exciting arcane tome of knowledge? A locked book bound in monster hide and covered with jewels, who knows what secrets it holds.

    You don't want some young kid's first group gaming experience to be hours of tedious character design followed by running out of time when folks decide it is time to leave. Indeed. For a one-shot, I would recommend that the DM prepare a suitable set of pre-gen PCs for use. If people have their own characters to use, that's fine, but if not they can at least jump straight in with a pre-gen.

  • 12:41 AM - pickin_grinnin quoted Koloth in post John Wick Presents Lays Off 7th Sea Staff
    Before all the long knives get drawn, keep in mind that WOTC has a track record for laying off a lot of folks once a product is mature and many of the promised books are out the door. There are a few threads on this forum discussing past WOTC Christmas layoffs. Once a product is mostly complete, produced and shipping, the harsh truth is you either need a new product line to keep folks busy or you don't need the folks. Sounds like this KS got most of the stuff out the door and into backers hands before the layoffs hit. That's why you should hire people on a contract basis for the project. Hiring people and then laying them off isn't necessary.
