    My normal suggestion for this is 3-4 hours of prep work per 1 hour of session. However, this is a "do as I say, not as I do" sort of thing, because I spent over a year preparing my current campaign. I do not suggest doing that. I would caveat that there are times when you'll have a player or players who get lots of enjoyment out of the little details, so it helps also to know your...

    I would add the only caveat being the original Dragonlance novels, because there's no other books I've ever read that reads so much like an actual D&D adventure with somewhat uncooperative players. Just read them for nostalgia, and then make the setting your own, in other words.

    You know, something occured to me reading these responses. What if the next stealth setting will be Nentir Vale? If I recall correctly, Mike Mearls actually wrote a bunch for it, and I could see them putting it somewhere in Forgotten Realms, with little tidbits on adapting it to other areas.

    Inchoroi is that legit asuming the UA is RAW? Isn't that some sort of game breaking, ceiling braking, floor braking, wall breaking, clothes breaking, armor breaking... Naked Godzilla just crashed the townhall!! :)

  • 02:22 AM - MechaPilot mentioned Inchoroi in post Should I share my game world with you folks?
    My answer is a bit of yes and no. Please don't take this as a commentary on your creative skills but your description of the setting hasn't really done anything to hook me, or to peak my interest. So, just from your description I'd pass on getting a fuller description of it. That said, there's really no harm in having other settings out there. I've enjoyed plucking odd bits from other settings before, especially when I'm running a game set in FR, or some other setting that I feel needs more spicing up. I will echo the sentiment Inchoroi offered. If you plan to publish your setting, you'll want to be careful not to give the whole thing away with what you present here. Frequently, that can be easier said than done. So if I were you and were planning to publish the setting (even on a pay what want basis) I wouldn't present it here.

  • 05:59 AM - Connorsrpg mentioned Inchoroi in post 5 Fighter Archetypes
    Inchoroi Oh, I'm not embarrassed about my creations. I have been homebrewing for over 20 years, and would find some of my earlier ones embarrassing too. I created each of these for a particular reason, style, player, concept and even yes, b/c I liked a different mechanic. I certainly knew that they would be unpopular with the majority here. I figured there might be the odd player that loved their **13th Age** fighter mechanics for eg and might have found something here to work with. Perhaps I was a little discouraged from posting here, but I went in knowing what the deal is here. I would not expect these to be welcome in every game, I was just hoping there was someone out there also searching for something like one of these concepts that does not exist in the PHB. And I will say again - the Battle Master to me is not a concept. It is just a bunch of rules to give a fighter choice (which is also cool, but it doesn't gel as a concept - it can be used to create concepts with specific choices...

  • 09:21 AM - Quickleaf mentioned Inchoroi in post Actively Evil PCs & a Pirate Sandbox?
    Inchoroi Looks like you've got lots of advice about sandboxes. I actually have something specific about 5e & pirate games for you: Check my sig for Spell & Crossbones, or alternately click the group icon of the skull in crossbones to the left of my post. You'll find tons of resources I made including some awesome random encounter tables for sea, port, island, and "the abyss" which are great for sandbox play. References to unique monsters refer to my Buccaneer's Bestiary in the Homebrew section (there's a link to it somewhere in there). I also highly recommend Skull & Crossbones an OOP Green Ronin d20 book available as a PDF from their site. Cheers matey!

  • 03:41 PM - Ghost2020 quoted Inchoroi in post Paizo Update: Pathfinder 2E Core and Bestiary in Regular and Deluxe Editions
    As a 5e DM, I unfortunately still buy a lot of the PF books, because the majority of the adventures, setting material, and especially campaigns are very good. As my current campaign is coming to a close, I pitched Rise of the Runelords-Shattered Star-Return of the Runelords (as a huge 3x 1-20 thing), Mummy's Mask, or Skull & Shackles for my next campaign. The overwhelming response was: "Yes." I have an extensive list of books that I have to buy now, though. I totally agree! I want to run all of these in 5e...The Dragon's Demand, Emerald Spire, Iron Fang Invasion, Giant Slayer, are all fantastic supplements and the world is exceptionally good. Combine that with some of the 3rd party 5e supplements - Revenge of the Horde for humanoid options, Tome of Horrors, and a few conversion sites for pathfinder monsters and it's easy to just launch it without too many troubles. That being said, i still have enough material as is to play for ages. I will for sure buy the PDFs just to ...

If I recall correctly, Mike Mearls actually wrote a bunch for it, and I could see them putting it somewhere in Forgotten Realms, with little tidbits on adapting it to other areas. Yeah I'll eat a shoe if that ever gets an official book. It was the official setting for 4e, but it's really just a hodgepoge of different settings merged together to create a semi-official sandbox for people.

    I am interested in these! Think you can dig them up? I have them on D&D Beyond. Righteous Brand: Melee + if hits next person hits target does +1d4 Radiant extra. Astral Seal: Melee + if hits next person hits target gains 1d6 temp hp.

  • 07:14 PM - GlassJaw quoted Inchoroi in post yes, this again: Fighters need more non-combat options
    You know, I actually agree that the fighter could use some stuff; not because its not possible for a player to use background stuff and whatnot to make themselves useful outside of combat, but because if a new player comes in with a fighter and doesn't use that stuff, they're kind of out of luck! I noticed it because I have a new player who's playing a fighter; he's awesome in combat, but sits like a bump on a log during anything else (unless its triggering a trap, since he's got the most HP). This! Very well said. I think this is definitely part of what I'm seeing at the table. The fighter could use something that sparks the player to get involved when not in combat. Here are some quick ideas I threw together: Teamwork: Grant a number of allies equal to your proficiency bonus advantage on a group ability check Guard Duty: Gain advantage on next Passive Perception check against an ambush Mentor: If you spend 1 min with an ally, grant advantage to that ally on their next untrained skill ...

I noticed it because I have a new player who's playing a fighter; he's awesome in combat, but sits like a bump on a log during anything else (unless its triggering a trap, since he's got the most HP). As 5ekyu said, I don't think that's a class issue, but a player issue, and the experienced players and DM can help guide the new player. For example, we hear the same complaints about casters who prepare all their spells as damage combat spells and then don't do anything out of combat. Or rogues who are super active in exploration, but feel sidelined in combat. Or specializing in GWM or other melee and then complaining when combat is all at range. I.e., players who specialize in one specific area ...

How is that different from say a wizard who is played by a player who spends every choice on fighting stuff? Takr a bog standard dwarven soldier fighter, you have stonecunning, crafting (mason, brew, smith pick one) and you have your military ranks, athletics, intimidation, gaming set and vehicles. Those are incredibly easy hooks there for a GM to engage that dwarf in most every four huts or more location he enters. In a dungeon type environment, stone cunning can be quite useful. Athletics plus...

  • 01:06 PM - akr71 quoted Inchoroi in post tail wags dog: streamers want to say 'aaargh' so we are getting a pirate adventure
    I'm not even mad. My players begged me to run a pirate campaign, so this plays right into it. My son has been petitioning his mother and sister for the same. "The next campaign we should be pirates!" and that was well in advance of Critical Role stealing a ship. In fact, to think that WotC suddenly changed gears and rushed to get a 'sea-faring' book on the go once they saw CR is unrealistic. Its been in the works for months, maybe longer. The Unearthed Arcana coming out at the same time as CR's pirate escapades is pure coincidence too. Well, Ii could see Matt Mercer having an inside track and agreeing to playtest some stuff for WotC

  • 04:08 PM - Dannyalcatraz quoted Inchoroi in post Shooting down LEGIT character concepts
    ...it'd be like if you were playing a nordic warrior-priest, and he brought in another nordic warrior-priest. Even then, I think it’s best for the DM to let the players handle it. Too easy for it to seem like playing favorites, otherwise.
  • 05:05 AM - Dannyalcatraz quoted Inchoroi in post Shooting down LEGIT character concepts
    For example, if there's a druid focused on nature, animals, and survival, I wouldn't allow another character to bring in a ranger focused on nature, animals, and survival. Most of my players would be annoyed, but would get over it eventually; one of my players, though, would be very upset by it, so I try to prevent that. I leave sorting that kind of thing to the players to resolve. I’ve resolved issues like that as a player, so I know it can be done. Sometimes it becomes a (friendly/unfriendly) rivalry, sometimes it becomes synergistic. But to me, a DM stepping into that dispute can look like favoring one player’s fun over another’s. Especially if the decisions all go one player’s way.* In a 2Ed campaign, another player and I both decided to play warrior-priest clerics using the Player’s Option books. Our concepts were fairly different- mine was from a Nordic culture, while his was more Eastern in flavor. Think spellcasting Monk, if you will. Both of us made a trivially similar...

    The DM determines a buyer's identity. Thank you for your suggestion. However it is this step I am asking for ENWorld's help with. That is, instead of me determining the buyers' identities, what are some official identities? Of Realmslore buyers, trading houses, middlemen? [emoji846]

  • 02:53 AM - Imaculata quoted Inchoroi in post DMs! Have you ever had a “boss encounter” turn into a cakewalk? What happened?
    I'm actually thrilled when my players bat above what I expected them to. That means I can dial it up a little bit more. As do I. I rejoice with my players when they triumph against the odds. I do my best to challenge my players, and I definitely do not go easy on them. But when they come up with something really clever, I give their well earned victory to them. This can sometimes make an encounter a lot easier than I intended, but in the end all my villains are expendable, so I don't care when, how or that they meet their end. The villains are supposed to die, and if they do so in a way that entertains the players, I consider my mission a success. I want my players to feel like they are the heroes. That means that they should have these epic victories... these moments where they outsmart my villains and humiliate them. If one of my villains meets a particularly humiliating end, I will often ask my players if they want to fill in the details of the scene, to add one-liners or some kind of ...

    Alright. I admit I'm intrigued. I love playing smart characters, and making it an interesting class without spellcasting is intriguing. I like having non-magic options in D&D. I don't hate magic or anything but it felt like an area D&D could use more of.
