    fair catch, I suppose even the Eldritch Knight, or perhaps Arcane trickster could take it as an off school spell... not that they'd have a lick of a chance with a high DC unless they have some very nice chargen

    one could give the human +5 to ability scores divided as they choose, with no more than 2 points attributed to any one score. this is less than the 6 points divided equally, but mitigates a third +2 potential. So possible of three abilities getting +1 and one gets +2; or two abilities get +2, and one gets +1. The downside is the even spread only boosts five ability scores

    Durable seems like a niche feat example that, as postulated, one would take if they had a high con, or were a main tank. especially if they are in a party that is lacking in healers. I had a group recently with a dwarf barbarian who took this to get her from 19 to 20 con ( because she couldn't go higher than 20 con), and since she was already proficient in Con saves , Resilient was out, she...

    from Volo's, Yaun-ti seem pretty powerful as a player race, and I agree on the Gith races from MToF having some OP potential. But both these examples have not occurred as an issue yet in my campaign, thanks to my players racially profiling them as evil ;) I currently have a player playing a Hexblade, and I cant say it stands out any more than the PHB warlocks, the Celestial Warlock in...

    my Moon Druid (10th atm), in Mad Mage campaign uses Healing Spirit often as post combat (self-mitigating it's potential to avoid DM nerfhammer :) ), and at higher level slot, it pretty much is a full party heal for one spell slot.

    I'm not sure, but I think you are implying that you're only reason for having a free hand is to make unarmed attacks? this assumption is incorrect, the Monks martial arts allows them to make unarmed attacks even if both hands are holding something. i.e., a kick, the hilt of a weapon, an elbow, etc...

    I love Mucha's work, and was unfamiliar with this whole Orgone thing. firstly, I have recently been also brainstorming something similar, with regards to a better warforged, that is, a being that is not so much warforged as it is an amalgamated automaton. It's for a multiverse concept I'm brewing secondly, some questions/ideas if this Orgonaut represents positive flow of energy, is...

    This is exactly what we did in our campaign, we also cross referenced from 2E source books and came up with reasonable costs for the other stuff. We dont use any gunpowder ( yet!) so not a worry on that scope. He got his training from a 0 level commoner NPC, because NPCs have no levels of experience... ;)

    depends also on what you consider 'adventuring'. For instance, the local clergyman may be 2nd or 3rd level thanks to his preaching and converts, his missions. A member of a local gang is a better scrapper (fighter) than most, a cutpurse has gained notoriety for his sleight of hand. A politician or noble comes to be a lord, representing a nominal level of achievement.

    Or, one could simply make a variant version of a magic item ( similar to the Variant option for wands on DMG pg 141), in this case a Ring of (limited) Invisibilty which bestows the same ability as the legendary counterpart but has a limited number of uses. Or even make something like a Wand of Invisibility ( with 7 charges/ 3 uses per day/etc) which allows its wielder to cast the 2nd level spell.

    the Ring of Invisibility allows its wearer* to become invisible, not cast the 2nd level spell. And it allows you to do this all day long, as an action, without concentrating, similar to any creature that has the at will ability to turn invisible (i.e. some Yugoloths, Pixies, etc). That is far superior to any spellcaster burning up his spell slots, and maintianing concentration on the '2nd level...

  • 05:48 PM - CleverNickName mentioned Radaceus in post Critical Role Kickstarter Predition Game: Guess the Funding Outcome (GTFO)
    Radaceus: you mention changing your bid, but I don't see an "Last Edited by..." tag at the bottom. You must have changed your mind before you hit the "Post" button. (Friendly reminder for everyone: you can't change your guess after you post it, or you will be disqualified. See the rules on Post #1.) Quick update, as of this posting the "Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina" Kickstarter is at $5,052,929 and has 37,273 backers. It's slowing down, but it isn't stopping...it gained a quarter of a million dollars today alone. I also noticed that they added more stretch goals today, including A WHOLE SECOND EPISODE at the $5.75M mark. And they aren't just producing a single episode now, they are doing a whole friggin' series. I feel like I should add stretch goals to this silly contest.

Right now we have: Scott DeWar playing John Tannerson Leif playing Grok I think Aumary is still around with Rose Scotley with Roque So we are missing Voda Vosa with Tuk and Radaceus with Scrag?

  • 11:22 AM - Yaarel mentioned Radaceus in post Strength is agile
    Radaceus To be clearer about what is being said in this thread: Dungeons & Dragons has six abilities. One of these abilities is called Strength. The Strength ability is responsible for more than Weightlifting alone. It is also responsible for ‘athleticism’. This athleticism includes mobility, aim, accuracy, and proficiency. This kind of accuracy in D&D corresponds to reallife gross motor skills, ‘big’ movements of the body. The ‘athletic’ aspect of Strength, is how D&D uses Strength for the athletic stunts that the original post visualizes, such as jumping and climbing. Explosive muscular power is an aspect of Strength, including the competent application of this Strength. It seems useful to apply the Athletics skill proficiency to any ability check that a particular circumstance demands: And yes, you could combine them into a single roll....for instance an Athletics Check and use the correlating Ability Score as needs be Yeah.

    A few quick notes. Radaceus Yes, you can crit with fire bolt. I have to look that up everytime. mips42, I just used some art that I had for Cade on the map. If you would prefer a different token, send me a link. Also, if you guys will let me know what your roll20 name is (right now we have three first names), I'll try to give you control over your token so that you can move them for your actions. You can PM that to me if you would like. I don't want you to have to give up anymore anonymity than you care to. *Edit* I also added numbers to the monsters: D-1, D-2, etc... That's for my convenience and bookkeeping. Feel free to ignore that.

    Thanks, Matthan and Radaceus for your comments. I will play Pell. While I very much like Iope and have been waiting to play her, I think the group needs a rogue more, and I'm intrigued by Pell. I've really only half-assed Pell, so I'll revisit him on Friday night and take another bite at the apple when I'm not as tired. Just as aside (but maybe an important one?), I don't draft characters with optimization in mind, nor do I play with optimization in mind. I recognize that optimizing is absolutely a legitimate play style, it just doesn't happen to be mine. And while I'm happy to participate in a game with fellow players who enjoy optimizing, I don't want anyone to be upset or disappointed when I don't. I could benefit from hearing you guys' thoughts on this, please. That said, I'm really looking forward to playing with everyone, and to playing Pell.

  • 10:49 PM - Matthan mentioned Radaceus in post Into the Dragon's Maw (OOC)
    CanadienneBacon onto Pell! I know someone else already looked over this, but I'm still going to scan it. I always figure HP through pure class and then add in Con. 8+(5*11)=8+55=63 [Class] 1*11=11 [Con] 63+11=64 HP. I think what happened is you worked with a Con modifier of +2 instead of +1. Easy fix. Also hat tip for wanting to make a strength based rogue. I'm interested to see how it looks for the rest of the character. AC was already pointed out that the Bracers don't work with armor, but the calculation otherwise is correct (St. Leather AC 12 + 2 (magic) +1 dex = AC 15 There's a formatting error where your Thieves' Tools runs into Skills. That's what led Radaceus to think you didn't have it listed, I guess. That's tiny stuff though. Also, your spells work. Radaceus, if you look at PHB 98 under Spells Known etc..., "You know three 1st-level wizard spells of your choice, two of which you must choose from the enchantment and illusion spells on the wizard spell list." That means, AT's get one free choice at 3rd (when they take the archetype), 8th, 14th, and 20th. That line is a little buried and gets overlooked a lot. Same thing happens with EKs. I'm partial to that line because I just leveled my own AT in the Is'Merith game on this board (went with Find Familiar at 3). That's what I see. It looks like an interesting character though. ENworld total: 1
  • 09:53 PM - Matthan mentioned Radaceus in post Into the Dragon's Maw (OOC)
    Radaceus the character looks good. Use the staff of power as an arcane focus. That's absolutely fine. ENworld playing = +3. You seem to have a great grasp on the rules. Have you considered trying to run a game here? I mostly ask because I really want the opportunity to play in more games.
  • 09:44 PM - Matthan mentioned Radaceus in post Into the Dragon's Maw (OOC)
    Going through some more characters. 3SpdDragster I checked out the magical items and you look good to go. For the ENworld playing, I won't count an application against you so if I'm reading that sentence right, you are just DMing one game and looking for a game to play. So -1 (lower is better) Radaceus I'm going over your character now and just wanted to thank you for the thoroughness of the layout (and that isn't a dig at anyone else's sheet). If anyone is still working on their character, you might want to look at copying his format. I may actually snag some of your formatting for my personal character sheets in the games that I play.
  • 03:10 PM - CanadienneBacon mentioned Radaceus in post Into the Dragon's Maw (OOC)
    Radaceus, I realize you couldn't possibly have known this, but today really is not the day for you to make suggestions about my character. I'm tired after a hellish work week in court, I know there are errors on Pell's sheet, and I'd hoped the DM would let me know what I need to fix. That said, thank you for your generosity in offering the comments, and I will have a look this weekend when my brain is not mush. I know better than to post tired, which is what I did last night and am doing again this morning, but sometimes posting tired can't be helped; I needed to get what I had on paper posted for Pell so that Matthan could see him. Which is why I followed up last night with this post: Matthan, when you sit down to look over my submission, please give priority to checking the arcane trickster. I'm positive there are math errors, hopefully not too many! I am highly unlikely to swap ability scores (Dex for Str). Or to slap on the Belt of Fire Giant Strength. Neither fit my character...

  • 07:45 PM - Mournblade94 quoted Radaceus in post Faerie Fire too powerful
    and if your party has no Druid, nor Bard...no faerie fire for your group. Also note, Bard get's a limited amount of spells, taking this situational spell as one of the three 1st level spells known ( odds of not choosing a 2nd level spell occuring) would be rare Or light Domain Cleric

    secondly, some questions/ideas if this Orgonaut represents positive flow of energy, is there an anathema? is there a Xag-yi to it's Xag-ya? if it is the suit of armor that is the curative force, is it a unique artifact akin to an infinity stone? or, is the Orgonaut a construct of a creator race, it and the Orgone fuse as a single entity that champions good? is Orgone a resource a certain race learned to manipulate and are able to craft into items? if so, is an Orgonaut a warrior class of the aforementioned race? 1) I imagine that it’s quite probable that orgone has an opposing force or is corruptable. OTOH, some might see entropy and decay as orgone’s opposite already. 2) I’m envisioning the armor as something rare if not outright unique. It collects and stores orgone energy, which the Orgonaut then uses. 3-6) that’s all VERY campaign dependent, and could work in any of those ways or more. The Orgonaut could be an arcane engineer version of Tony Stark, an alien o...

    In my case, I dropped out of highschool ( note, I did have high marks, it's a longer story..), did 8 years in the Bering Sea, got my GED in the mean time, as well as learned several aspects of the building industry on my off seasons, which I parlayed into my next chapter as a carpenter and builder...etc. and so on...

And this has been the way of the worker since time immemorial. Yes, I said education *and* training. You don't need to be highly "educated" (in degrees) to be skilled. You do have to be trained. You are. The worker in the middle ages would not have had the opportunity to travel, learn, and gain skills like you did. ...

  • 01:43 PM - Paul Farquhar quoted Radaceus in post The Making and Breaking of Deities & Demigods
    To be fair, Pegasus, is a unique creature of the Greek mythos. I think Gary and crew are having a little fun here, embellishing on both their adaptation of Pegasus into a species, and the horse riding Valkyries ability to fly ( as per the poem Helgakviđa Hundingsbana, in the Völsungakviđa edda). If you want to be sensible, myths continue to develop over time, and Valkyries have been depicted riding winged horses for a long time - in paintings, in productions of Wagner etc. In D&D a winged horse is called a pegasus, after the unique Greek winged horse, so it is perfectly valid to state that Valkyries ride pegasii (meaning winged horses).

Many 'skilled' people that I have had the honor of working beside had no degrees, little in the way of education; they learned their trades by application, not in a classroom. And this has been the way of the worker since time immemorial. I'm inclined to agree, and I dropped the expectation that the average level in a D&D game world was 1st level back in the early 90's. Exposure to the FR didn't make me admire the FR as a setting, but it did force me to question the sacredness of my cows, and Gygaxian demographics was one of the things that went away, not the least of which is that Gygax himself didn't seem to really follow his own advice. In my opinion, the average modern person is best modelled in D&D terms as a 2nd or 3rd level Expert. Granted, in the real world we don't have hit points, but a reasonable app...
  • 06:38 AM - R_Chance quoted Radaceus in post What proportion of the population are adventurers?
    Im certainly a multi classed citizen. I've levels in several trades, skilled in several tools, some instruments, writing, poetry, carpentry, masonry, manufacturing, animal handling, farming; Computer systems, software, HR, Management; Sailing, Longshoreman, Deckhand... I'm probably above average (I prefer the term 'abnormal'), but its my experience that I'm more common than most Education and training is more readily available today than in most fantasy settings. Job specialization is high in our society; not so much in a typical fantasy setting where most people are farmers. Even with farming techniques more efficient than the European Middle Ages (not a high bar...) where 90-95% of the population were farmers most people will be producing food so that a relatively few can specialize outside of food production. And few of those specialists will be "adventurers", most will fill needed slots like "smiths", "carpenters" and "priests". Adventurers... some soldiers / martial types, some ro...

  • 01:13 AM - Khisanth the Ancient quoted Radaceus in post Invisibility magic items seem overvalued
    However, regarding the Ring of Invisibility being legendary, this is due to it allowing its wearer to cast Invisibility repeatedly, as an action. Well, sure, but it's still only a 2nd level utility spell, and you still become visible when you attack... and then it takes another action before you're invisible again... It just doesn't really seem to compare with other legendary items on either the cool factor or the power factor. furthering on the above, invisible as a condition is a huge tactical advantage in 5E game mechanics, therefore it belies the need for it to be harder to come by. But it isn't really hard to come by, since it's a 2nd level spell.

  • 09:24 PM - Shiroiken quoted Radaceus in post Frightened spellcasters
    Technically, the PHB advises this in the last paragraph describing Concentration, albeit with regards to environmental effects, so not much of a stretch to apply the same to certain conditions:Yes, but that's only against spells with Concentration. I was referring to making the save every time you cast a spell while frightened, as a method to hamper the casters as badly as it hampers martial characters. Personally I think this is a bit harsh, and don't find the need, but I wanted to provide an option.
  • 01:47 PM - BluejayJunior quoted Radaceus in post Frightened spellcasters
    It should be mentioned, anytime a spellcaster takes damage, they make a Constitutions Save to maintain Concentration, and therefore if they are under the frightened condition, they save at disadvantage. Saving throws aren't at disadvantage when Frightened. Concentration is a saving throw, not an ability check. Personally, I don't have a problem with it. It's just something that affects melee characters more, like how silence only really hinders spellcasters and not fighters. Just different uses. That said, adding in a concentration check to attempt to cast the spell would probably be the best way to do it that I can think of. If you think it needs to be more effective against spellcasters, go for it.

    Matt Mercer's Gunslinger archetype is also worth considering if you are going to allow pistols Eh, you're better off taking the Battle Master subclass and simply giving the player gun proficiency and proficiency with Tinker Tools. The Gunslinger isn't actually very good at all. What we see from Percy on Critical Role is a result of the many attacks a Fighter gets, and abilities that the Battle Master also has, and the properties of the guns he built. The subclass is adding basically nothing that isn't in Battle Master, just different for the sake of difference, with the added drawbacks of not adding to damage like Manuevers do, requiring declaring before the attack (and thus wasting your "grit"), and many of the trick shots increasing your chance of misfire for no particular reason. not to mention the chance of completely breaking the gun every time you misfire, and the fact that the subclass only does anything at all for you if you have a gun, while a Battle Master could just pick u...

  • 10:17 AM - Scott Graves quoted Radaceus in post Firearms
    And, a sharpshooter ranger could (from up to 600 feet away) draw his bow, fire two arrows, fire two more, fire two more, fire two more, fire two more... have you closed the range gap yet? no? fire two more , fire two more... etc oh, you are close enough to shoot your pistols now, did I mention I was a horizon walker?... point being, having firearms akin to the specifications in the DMG, or a class archetype like the Gunslinger, is balanced as per the systems mechanics and no more powerful than other options available. Who gives a damn. The point is pistols will work differently than crossbows so one needs to think of them as something different, not just a riff on a crossbow. The guy is playing a pirate. I doubt he's min-maxing a guy. A single rifled wheellock pistol gives him the possibility of an Indiana Jones moment. Instead of taking on the swordsman he just shoots the guy. Then proceeds to dismember others with a sword while flippig the pistol around and beatig enemies on t...

  • 08:56 PM - Mistwell quoted Radaceus in post Help with Moon Druid forms
    Giant Spider for scouting back up with rogue. As one of the only beast forms with a ranged attack (and it's a good ranged attack), and spider climbing, and a primary attack which does good damage (if the target fails the poison save), and a decent AC I think the Giant Spider is one of the better overall forms.

  • 08:18 AM - dragonfriend7738 quoted Radaceus in post Need help with quests for creating life
    Wooden muscles: must be flexible, so something like yew or bamboo. ( though I am not sure why it must be wood other than wanting to add that aspect for a living composite) so in the living composite vein (hehe) of thought, following on to- Veins; Bamboo shoots, or reeds which also leads to- Sinew; as above both could possibly use some type of root, lets call it 'tangleroot'( hell we can call it whatever we want, this is fantasy after all!) Blood; Mercury, or quicksilver if you willI'm thinking the muscles should be wood because I'm trying to follow the current basis of Warforged. Also, I want to keep the idea of mixing metal and nature that the Warforged is currently known for.

Personally I would go Polynesia and lost world New Zealand perhaps replacing humans all together. If humans exist they could be limited to the coasts if say Kea are Lord's of the Alpine area and Kakapo and Kiwi are the elf replacements for the forests.

  • 09:57 AM - CapnZapp quoted Radaceus in post Cantrip Auto-Scaling - A 5e Critique
    Regardless, a cantrip failed save means no effect or damage. And? Did I refute this when it was brought up? Whether a save means half or no damage doesn't mean much. It's just one way the game can regulate the actual DPR, which is the interesting thing. That cantrips do nothing if the monster saves, encourages the caster to cast it on the henchmen rather than the BBEG. But that's nothing new, since BBEGs do not go down to cantrips anyway. At high levels cantrips is what you use for "filler fights", the fights where you realize you will win anyway and you want to conserve real power for later. (Unless you're a Blaster Warlock of course) And 22(4d10) damage at 17th level is no different than someone firing a bow, or swinging a sword at the same level, and stacked next to a melee class that spell attack cantrip takes one action of the spellcasters action economy, whereas, a weapon attack benefits from extra attack. Ouch. No no no... the four dice represents four attacks. Sure, a C...
