    I enjoy Nerdarchy quite a bit. I enjoy listening to Nerdarchy, more now in the last few months than I did earlier on in 5E. Their production values, especially their audio, and format gets better as they go along. It's obviously not scripted. It's just sitting around a table with gamers having discussions about various D&D topics.

    I enjoy Nerdarchy quite a bit. https://www.youtube.com/user/Nerdarchy Nerdarchy is funny because I feel they are like 2 weeks behind topics that I read or participate on in this forum. I usually listen to part of an episode when I get home from work and am changing clothes. They can ramble a bit, and honestly do not seem very well prepared in any episode (evidenced by them looking through the books and re-reading rules). If they were better structured and edited it probably wouldn't bug me so much.

    Gelatinous Cube.With the partially-digested skeleton floating in it, so it looks like some sort of undead. As long as we're going there: Gas Spores.

    For clarification purposes... verb (used with object), dodged, dodging. 1. to elude or evade by a sudden shift of position or by strategy: to dodge a blow; to dodge a question. verb (used without object), dodged, dodging. 3. to move aside or change position suddenly, as to avoid a blow or get behind something. noun 5. a quick, evasive movement, as a sudden jump away to avoid a blow or the like. What are we clarifying? That definition has nothing to do with the mechanics of Uncanny Dodge. Don't go down the road of definitions, else you'll start having to ask why dispel magic is really bad at dispelling magic.

    The way I see it, as I've said before, UD takes place after the attack roll but before the attack damage. I'm by no means a genius so I try to rely on what seems to me like common sense understanding. Key word in Uncanny Dodge is dodge... You cannot "dodge" a hit after the damage is already inflicted, it makes no sense. You cannot magically heal yourself by dodging after you receive damage... You attempt to dodge an incoming attack that's otherwise going to hit you, therefore the order as intended would most likely be attack roll hits, you attempt to dodge the bulk of the damage, roll for damage. After14 pages some seem to think that if you play dodgeball and get hit with the ball that if you roll around after being hit by the ball that your post-hit dodging will somehow magically put you back in the game... Rulings not rules will never work as long as people need everything spelled out for them. And that's fair, but there's nothing important about Uncanny Dodge's name rule-wise. It's a ...

    IMO Uncanny Dodge applies before the Shocking Grasp affect takes hold. My visual interpretation... An electrically charged hand (SG) is about to touch you, you attempt to avoid being hit in a critical area (UD). The attack still manages to hit you but you don't take the full damage because you managed to dodge the brunt of it. So instead of taking a shocking attack to the chest you manage to be grazed on the arm or something. You take less damage and then at the end when the damage is rolled you suffer the reaction nullifying affects of Shocking Grasp. IMO UD happens in between the attack roll and the damage roll. You know you're going to be hit and you can't stop that from happening, but you can attempt to less the impact by adjusting yourself and dodging somewhat. I think the error here is that you have a preferred narration that you're making the mechanics adapt to. There are many other narrations of the effects of Uncanny Dodge that don't have your particular set of baked in biases (no...

    I'd be fine removing DEX from ranged damage, as it makes no sense... at all. why not? dex represents accuracy. More acurate shot more damage. attack roll+damage roll is an abstraction.

  • 12:27 AM - hejtmane quoted Valador in post Can a character tell when they are in danger of drawing an Opportunity Attack, notably in regards to Sentinel & Polearm Master?
    Not necessarily 100% true... Just look at MMA... You can be super experienced and still get knocked out in 13 seconds because you don't quite know what another person has up their sleeve... Assumptions can be deadly... Just because you're a fighter or adventurer or warrior or w/e doesn't make you all knowing. You never 100% know but they tend to follow patterns and yes sometimes experience fighters go down in 13 seconds not because of not knowing sometimes matchups make a fight or that is their weakness and the other person does a better job of exposing that weakness. Talent matters and sometimes luck matters

  • 03:18 PM - n0nym quoted Valador in post Did I do something wrong?
    I think the real issue here is that the group you were in is made up of immature people. This. After reading the OP, it was the first thing that came to my mind. How old are the people you're playing with and, more importantly, how long have they been playing RPGs ? Immaturity is a real problem in roleplaying games. I realised that recently when I DMed a sandbox-type Dark Sun campaign for 2 groups : one with veteran players, people around 30-33 years old and another with less experienced and younger people. With the first group, I've had some of the best roleplaying experience in my life. With the other, the campaign ended quickly because players were stealing from one another (typical sign of RPG immaturity) and even undermining each others efforts to follow the scenario. The story was identical for both groups, but probably too mature and complex for the second one. Talk to your friends about what happened and try to understand their motives. If they keep doing this, try to find an...

  • 05:46 PM - Mallus quoted Valador in post Where is the National Guard?
    You poor mistreated souls just tell me how much of my hard earned money as a donation would ease the massive pain and suffering you're obviously in thanks to the man holding you down... *insert eyeroll* This is sarcasm by the way... Please don't ask me for money, go for work it, thanks. Who are you addressing here? Everyone in this thread who is non-white? Everyone with politics to the left of yours? Speaking as someone who qualifies on both counts, all I can say is: keep your money! I don't need it. My family's doing pretty well (and not because of government handouts). So no worries! However, seeing as you're in Texas, I do have a favor to ask. Could you do something about the elected officials responsible for choosing those awful public school textbooks? You know, the history books that refer to the African slaves as "guest workers". And the science texts with Moses riding around on a dinosaur. These have have an influence on the national level. A bad one, if you're a fan of hist...

    More of these race baiting discussions... How about we do this. You poor mistreated souls just tell me how much of my hard earned money as a donation would ease the massive pain and suffering you're obviously in thanks to the man holding you down... *insert eyeroll* This is sarcasm by the way... Please don't ask me for money, go for work it, thanks. Wait, are you saying that the only reason people are victims of disparate treatment is not based on their ethnicity/race/religion but because they're too lazy to work? or that people who are claiming to be victims of disparate treatment, aren't, and that they just want money? Or both? The votes are counted as they are thrown in the trash as worthless. It doesn't matter which party wins the state. The votes of the other party are automatically tossed away as garbage, holding no weight whatsoever. Just because "your side" didn't win an election, doesn't mean that your votes are worthless and garbage. They also drive future behavior ...

  • 10:00 PM - Neonchameleon quoted Valador in post Fury over Black Hermione Granger
    ...using them of. I am 110% all for EVERYONE having perfect equality regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation. I read that on one hand. I read on the other you claim "The truth of the matter is reverse racism is a bigger problem than the perceived presence of racism from whites." If you actually meant that reverse racism was worse than the existing racism in the United States then at best you are extremely blinkered - and even if you didn't the two statements are in extreme tension. What I am not for are people blaming me, even if it's indirectly, because of the color of my skin, for offenses I took no part in. If you want me to treat you fairly and with respect, DO NOT insult me by blaming me for things I had no part in. As far as I know you are only personally being blamed for spreading the nonsense that reverse racism is a bigger problem than the real and actual racism that gets people killed and imprisoned. Your own words are something that you, Valador, have a part in. They are also spreading memes that are (a) untrue, (b) an attempt to deny actual racism. Which means that your words, Valador, are providing a cover for racism and can only come from someone who is extremely blinkered, only looking at the minor hurts they are receiving. All I'm saying is that society has made it acceptable to be racist against white people yet condemns it if it's the other way around. All racism, from both sides, should be handled the same. How about that as a first step towards equality. Personally, as a first step towards equality, I'd suggest actual practical measures. Like normalising the way e.g. drug offences are handled to change the fact that although actual rates of drug taking and possession are slightly higher among white guys, the incarceration rate is massively higher amongst black guys. (In pre-riot Ferguson, 92% of stop-and-search searches were on black people (67% of the population is black) - but the rate of finding contraband w...
  • 09:42 PM - Homicidal_Squirrel quoted Valador in post Fury over Black Hermione Granger
    I ask because I've met and know a lot of people of color who have been raised to, and firmly believe that white people are the root of all their problems as a whole. It's literally instilled into them from childhood. So I know some people think it's true.I've met White people that are exactly the same and believe it's the Blacks and the Jews and the Mexicans that are the cause of their problems rather than themselves. So what if some people believe it? Does it make it true for everyone? You can't deny that there are racist White people1. Does some White people being racist mean that all White people are racist? Hardly. It is insulting to think so, don't you agree? Well, it's also insulting to generalize the way you are doing. Bad form. Well, you can... or someone else can, but that would just be ridiculous and a lie.

If you want me to treat you fairly and with respect, DO NOT insult me by blaming me for things I had no part in. I'm curious, who has blamed you? Do you have any examples of this happening to you? All I'm saying is that society has made it acceptable to be racist against white people yet condemns it if it's the other way around. All racism, from both sides, should be handled the same. How about that as a first step towards equality.So the first step to equality is to treat the group that suffers the least? Also the media only promotes more racism. If a black cop shoots a white kid it's never labeled the same as if a white cop shoots a black kid. The media always makes it a point to emphasize the fact that the white person killed the black person...

If you want me to treat you fairly and with respect, DO NOT insult me by blaming me for things I had no part in. I am all for equality as well. However, I feel its important to point out that I have never felt blamed for slavery. The United States as a country is to blame for the history of slavery in the U.S. The country probably should make some manner of reparations for that, even if it comes in the form of things like interest free housing or education loans. All racism, from both sides, should be handled the same. How about that as a first step towards equality. Sure, but let's start with the stuff that is resulting in actual death and the ruining of lives first. Let's start by repealing mandatory minimums, by creating a single p...
