  • 03:53 PM - Sacrosanct mentioned Jeff Albertson in post Blow it up! What class need to be completely re-worked in 5e?
    Jeff Albertson, I keep getting notifications you are quoting me this thread, but they are all hidden because apparently you have me on your ignore list. But obviously you can see my posts because you keep quoting me. So there is a forum bug there somewhere. So either take me off of your list if you want to quote me, or stop quoting me if your goal was to ignore me. Otherwise I don't see the point of putting someone on ignore while still continuing to quote them. I tried initially to send a PM, but since you have me on ignore, it won't allow me.

  • 02:45 PM - steeldragons mentioned Jeff Albertson in post 5e Warlord Demand Poll
    PS: Jeff Albertson, if you want to quote someone it is customary to remove them from your blocked list, so they can read what is being quoted. All I see in my notifications is that you quoted me, but the message is "Hidden." As I do not have you on my Blocked list, I assume it is "hiding" from your end.

  • 01:01 AM - Parmandur mentioned Jeff Albertson in post How can I report someone who doesn't post?
    Was the original post sarcastic? Given the user name "The Human Target", I can see that. Did my sarcasm-detector fail and I took the troll bait? Oh well. Half-serious, I presume: surprised that Jeff Albertson hasn't laughed with the original post.

  • 03:51 AM - Manbearcat mentioned Jeff Albertson in post NPC Ability Checks and Stunting or...Ogre Smash
    ...ghter McFighterson and Manoftheclotherton! Oh noooooes! <the Fighter. maybe he's a knight, has some noble Ideal of sacrifice or some kind of Bond with the Cleric> Good Sir McFighterson, your courage and commitment to duty distills the moment in perfect clarifying detail for you. With the alacrity of your protective impulse, you can shove your companion out of the way (Cleric won't have to make a Saving Throw from the AoE). However, you'll suffer Disadvantage to your own Saving Throw! This would give an opportunity for the player to (a) earn Inspiration, (b) express their thematic archetype, (c) positively impact the situation, (d) perhaps spend prior earned Inspiration to undo that Disadvantage. Step 2) Consult the NPC's stat block along with DMG 120 and DMG 249 to determine attack/saving throw + damage expression (stepping it back for AoE or a rider). Alright, that's enough from me. Have at it. I'll check back in in a few days to see what folks have to say and acknowledge Jeff Albertson 's laugh (I guess that qualifies as preemptive acknowledgement).

  • 02:28 PM - pemerton mentioned Jeff Albertson in post Low CRs and "Boring" Monsters: Ogre
    Jeff Albertson, of all the posts of mine that you've laughed at (now 150+? I'm in the top 20 for laughs on the XP stats page, and no one else thinks I'm funny!), this has to be the strangest. It's a purely factual correction of the availability of some 4e material: No you didn't. I got forced movement as a rider on p 42 of my DMG. I got terrain powers, which include examples of riders, in my DMG2. I got a more systematic treatment or improvised conditions by wrecan as a free article from the WotC website.

  • 06:11 PM - Hriston mentioned Jeff Albertson in post How do your roleplay?
    I think it's just @Jeff Albertson doing that. He seems to think this is Reddit with XP being the upvote button and Laugh the downvote button. It's quite annoying. It can be, but thanks to the laugh Jeff Albertson gave me up-thread I'm now level 11. Thanks Jeff!

  • 10:22 PM - MechaPilot mentioned Jeff Albertson in post 5th Edition and the "true exotic" races ...
    Jeff Albertson: So you're not going to actually contribute to the discussion at all? Seems like a waste of time to just throw laughs and Xp around when you have the full opportunity to make your own post and speak your mind on the subject. But, it's your time to waste.

  • 06:19 PM - Hriston mentioned Jeff Albertson in post D&D 5E Does flanking grant advantage ?
    ...ready have access to the Help action if they want to use it. Optional flanking is an addition that adds something to the game. You're not suggesting anything to add in its place. You see the good thing about being free to give advantage as DM rather than binding it to a fixed situation is, that I can grant it sometimes and sometimes not. It allows me to reward good narration. I could decide to not give advantage when someone just says "I attack X from the side", but decide to grant advantage for a really clever situational idea the player comes up with to gain advantage on the next attack. Using the optional flanking rules takes away from that freedom. You suddenly have to almost always give advantage to attacks. You can no longer award good ideas very well and in the long run, it will make combat more boring, because players won't feel motivated to come up with clever ideas. I was unaware that making inconsistent rulings was an ideal, but to each his/her own. Feel free to laugh Jeff Albertson. I realize pressing the laugh button may be one of the only forms of communication available to you.

    Jeff Albertson, I'm glad you found my post amusing. Please feel free to share what you think is funny about it.

    Total. It's like comparing Monopoly to crack. Yeah, fewer people die from disputes over crack.
  • 10:30 PM - MonsterEnvy quoted Jeff Albertson in post The 5E Art is Awesome
    5e art does little for me. Much of the monster art deviates from prior editions too much for my tastes. Some of it I like better than 4e, much of it I don't. 3.o and early 3.5 was the worst though for my tastes. Overall, I just don't gel with anything WOTC feels the game should look like. Whether that was 1998 or 2015. I would prefer no art, frankly. I can see what you mean, I loved the vibe of the playtest packets, no art, just gritty text. I can't agree with you at all and don't get how you could think this. I could barely read through the playtest packets because there was nothing but text and no art or fluff. Anyway I love the art. I just wish I could find high quality versions of all of the art. Because I can't find several pieces I want to find. Like the Wight, Rakshasa, Wraith and Yugoloths.

    And determine when the outcome is uncertain with a chance of failure, when the outcome is uncertain with a chance of failure, when the outcome is uncertain with a chance of failure, when the outcome is uncertain with a chance of failure, when the outcome is uncertain with a chance of failure…sorry, did I say that twice…? I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you mean here.
  • 09:10 PM - chibi graz'zt quoted Jeff Albertson in post Chris Perkins: Reintroducing Settings in Ways that Surprise People
    My only regret after reading this thread is not picking up the 3rd Ed FR Silver Marches book! Regret not, I picked up a barely used copy ( w/ map) on eBay. I guess I correctly assumed that CS books are a thing of the past and have been building my FR collection slowly since getting into 5e.
  • 08:55 PM - iserith quoted Jeff Albertson in post Do monsters benefit from a long rest like adventurers?
    That seems odd, I mean, interesting is cool but, a long rest, is a long rest. Only if the DM says it is. Rulings, not rules, right?! :)
  • 08:17 PM - Dire Bare quoted Jeff Albertson in post Where is the new Unearthed Arcana article?
    The sense of entitlement, with this edition, has reached new (or old, "traditional" garbage?) bounds. Yeah, we haven't "missed" any articles, we are not "owed" any articles. We were not promised a certain number or type of articles each month. They come out when they come out. Yeesh.
  • 06:15 PM - FormerlyHemlock quoted Jeff Albertson in post Would you change a monster's hit points mid-fight?
    As a guideline, like everything in this game: no. In my 25+ years of DMing, I have fudged very occasionally, but usually to make it harder for the PCs (I have never ended a fight early), but I had an evil druid NPC that wild shaped onto a hawk and flew away (to maybe come back later), only for a player to get out his bow and at max distance nail him, of course I let it ride. I have had characters end an encounter I spent time on in the surprise round, you know what, tough noogies for me. The only sad part about that is that your players may never know just how much pain they avoided by killing him quickly. It's not like they KNOW the assassin just saved them from a Meteor Swarm to the face, unless you tell them somehow, in-game or otherwise. It's the flip side of bad guys not knowing the PCs' capabilities. Reputations and intel can help with this a bit. If they take a funny hat off the smouldering corpse, some NPc can later recognize the hat as belonging to Cyril McViim the Starkiller Mage... whi...
  • 03:14 PM - quoted Jeff Albertson in post Huge Constrictor Snake - Just how HUGE is it?
    What a shame, I limited myself, in such a way, once, never again. I am not sure I understand your statement?
  • 01:23 PM - sidonunspa quoted Jeff Albertson in post Chris Perkins: Reintroducing Settings in Ways that Surprise People
    Perfect, absolutely dig, they just keep nailing it for me with this edition. There is no need at this point to release a fifth FR campaign setting book/boxed set, etc. except we have no real idea what the Sundering did... they say the gods came back.. ok which ones? 4th made tons of changed to the realms.. and 5th changed 'most of them' back.. its that most of them I want to know about.. now hunt though 10 adventures, 1 game, and a novel or 6 to get the details I'm looking for.

    I have had characters end an encounter I spent time on in the surprise round, you know what, tough noogies for me. Yup.
  • 02:33 AM - Uchawi quoted Jeff Albertson in post Chris Perkins: Reintroducing Settings in Ways that Surprise People
    Why does it not bode well? The splat-crunch-avalanche has not worked out too well, so far; burn out; maybe they are trying to actually alter a bad tradition. "…tradition is the illusion of permanence…" -Woody Allen My point is ratio of crunch, so if a caster can look forward to every adventure/supplement offering a new spell, then what entices the non-casting classes. Magic items are available for all classes. That is in addition to quality versus quantity, which I always favor the former, but not to the exclusion of only casting classes.

  • 11:55 PM - Kramodlog quoted Jeff Albertson in post When do you think they will announce the next book?
    It looks like they might be approaching it in a MtG, blocks format. I wonder if that could solve "bloat" and "power creep". Release one splatbook with each AP. That splatbook can only be used with the current Adventure League season. When a new season begins, all the old splatbook can't be used. Home games decide what splat they want to use, if any. Designers would be less burden with balancing new spells and feats with all the splat out there. They just need to focus on the core books.
  • 03:44 AM - bedir than quoted Jeff Albertson in post When do you think they will announce the next book?
    I love all of those settings, but thinking about it, the material already out there is eminently useable with 5th Ed, no real need for yet another FR campaign setting book/boxed set, we have 4 now. If they are expanding their market new users aren't going to think "Wonder what they used to put out?" They will think "I like this stuff and want more." More means new. If 5th edition is going to be a business success it will release new setting books because people who never played will buy them.

  • 08:53 PM - Warunsun quoted Jeff Albertson in post When do you think they will announce the next book?
    I have converted many monsters, classes, races, and some spells, so far, that is one of the big sellers of 5th ed for me: ease of conversion. Very true. I find converting any edition D&D to 5E D&D to be a very simple process. It is almost as easy as converting to Castles & Crusades, almost. :)
  • 08:27 PM - Wednesday Boy quoted Jeff Albertson in post Whats your Favorite Unpublished Setting?
    Ah, groovy, I have never heard of this. Check out the link in my first post if you're interested in a light but exhilarating and enjoyable read. Spoiler: George R.R. Martin fans might especially appreciate it because Rich Wulf never actually finishes the story.
