    Technically there are four categories of looting that my players involve themselves in. First loot for themselves, which is the rare magic item, large amounts of coin or high value jewelry, art, etc... The second is loot to use as gifts to major NPCs. Third loot that they let their hirelings, henchmen, retainers and men at arms take for themselves. Lastly loot that they use as parts and materials...

    My game does not have caps. Using "white room theory crafting" and the house rules we have it is possible for a player to raise one of their character's attributes from 18 to 30 by level 15. However, they would do this at the expense of improving nothing else. An illustrative example would be a wizard starting with intelligence 18 who raises it to 30 at level 15 but can only cast the same...

    A pirate could use fish as weapons. Small fish thrown like a dagger, larger fish used as a club. Regardless of how slippery the ship's deck are or a dock is the pirate never falls.

    I am making a few assumptions about your game in order to "port" my very home brew game into a more standardized form. If you have your players roll 4d6 dropping the lowest for their attributes, a warlock would choose a number of attributes where he would only roll 3d6. This represents a weakness of some sort and a reason to make a deal with a power. Suppose your warlock chose str, con, and...

The poor wizard was run through before my eyes. You know things are not good...

All the rest in the clutch will produce miniature dragons ranging mostly from the size of ferrets to something that can be ridden. These smaller dragons do not breath fire and have a low intelligence. They sadly for the mother dragon are a food source for the true baby dragon when game is scarce. With plenty of game around...

    BlivetWidget in my game I increased the amount of experience required to level. To reach level ten requires 300,000. I do this because I never liked the level 1-20 in a year adventure paths. It felt too fast. People wouldn't show up unless we had the next dungeon magazine and most were not interested or cared about making different characters for the other adventures in the issue.

    "Camping outside the BBEG's door?" Assuming the party has reached the "last" room of the dungeon it would depend upon the intelligence of the BBEG. Something like a jelly cube might sit there, owl bears make noise trying to find a way out, a wizard would have some escape magic.

    I would debate that the paladin is not based entirely on the "knight in shinning armour", for, if you consider Arthurian legend many of the characters therein are problematic in their actions and not fitting what a paladin is in game. There is not a particular figure to define the archetypal ranger. If you consider both a paladin and ranger to be defenders of the land and people, a paladin...

    An alternative to direct damage; have the bow negate dragon abilities on a successful hit. This could be to prevent breath weapons, prevent fear aura, force to remain on the ground. Each making it easier for the party to slay the dragon.

  • 01:40 AM - LordEntrails mentioned Draegn in post Making Sense of Forest Terrain
    OK, that's one way to look at it. Except... this means that standing under a tree allows you to use the tree as cover, or to climb it, even if you are standing 10 or 15 feet away from the trunk, and even if the branches are high enough that you don't have to duck. Also, how then do you interpret massive trees in medium or dense forest? If a "massive tree" square is occupied by the trunk of a tree thick enough to prevent entry, then "10% massive trees" in medium forest comes to 174 trees per acre and "20% massive trees" in dense forest comes to 348 trees/acre. Which is still an awfully lot, especially when we're talking about big trees with trunks thick enough to completely block a square. Alternatively, a massive tree has to completely block some of the squares under it with something other than the tree's trunk. How does that work? Have you ever been in a forest? What type of forest? Look at the image from the video @Draegn posted. Those are old growth trees that might not have any branches closer than 15 feet to the ground with a trunk that may be two feet in diameter. Then you have "new" forests like you will find in much of the US, where the tree limbs touch the ground and moving into them is at least difficult terrain and provides visible cover from outside the tree. Both of those types of forest will have roughly the same number of tree per area. But both play very differently in an RPG. The numbers work, if you have the same understanding as those who wrote them. If you have a different understanding, or make different assumptions, then change them. Oh, and don't put the trees on every grid intersection or every grid center. Spread them around or your forest will look fake.

    Draegn It can also be attached to an arquebus. Attaching a knife to a pistol is kind of a silly thing to do, but pistol-swords were a real thing, so if somebody wanted to build that, it would probably use the stats of a pistol or a longsword (depending on how you used it) which would effectively be the same stats as a pistol with a one-handed 1d8 "bayonet". (Or 1d6 for a shortsword/scimitar version.) If you just wanted to hold an unattached bayonet in one hand and attack with it, that would be some kind of improvised weapon, maybe doing 1d6 damage (analogous to trying to jab someone with just the point of a spear).

  • 01:14 AM - Slit518 mentioned Draegn in post Let's talk about your homebrew world!
    oreofox - I too use half-orcs to represent orcs in my world. And your story of the Dwarves who can't grow beards reminds me of a group of Dwarves I made for my homebrew modeled after Buddhists, kind of. Every time the Dwarf sins, it shaves it's beard. So Dwarves with stubble sinned maybe yesterday, Dwarves clean shaven sinned recently, and those with large beards must be saints. :lol: Draegn - I too have rules for multi-racial characters. Half-races are a bit easier I find. FXR - Savage Lands? Why does that sound so familiar? Like the Steam game? Was there a D&D source book out on it? Your story about the Progenitors reminds me of the Sumerian story about the Anunnaki creating the first humans. And the story of the ogres and giants being bastardized children of the Progenitors reminds me of the biblical stories of fallen angels mating with earth women and giving off the Nephilim offspring. I like the links to world mythology you have there. I'm liking the world lore thus far that everyone is sharing. It is cool, and interesting to see all the creativity of the community. And I hope to read others! In case any of you are wondering, I have posted in a thread about my homebrew a while back. You can check it out here -

    Draegn it might be that this was the Intention or the Basic Moral code the original creators applied. But as i am not intermingling reality with fiction to Derivate a Moral danger because soem Monsters are named devil, i also not have to stick to the same clean modern ethics the Inventors of D&D had intended for the game when creating my own game scenarios, as i posted already 1 post above, depending on the PCs wanting to play in such a scenario. I also think this is pretty much individually, it is liek soem people like watching horror movies and some hate it, some see the devil if a Dragon appears in a Cartoon for Kids on TV.

  • 06:10 AM - Quickleaf mentioned Draegn in post Describe the Nerebdian Vast (48th layer of the Abyss)?
    ... black sun hides behind the red sun most of the time, and the red sun bakes the land in merciless heat. But, when the black sun appears, everything exposed on the surface is scoured and blasted with deadly radiation that destroys and mutates all that it touches. Blood-drinking cacti. Fields of petrifying decay where living beings are slowly transformed to sand, pieces of them sloughing off slowly and agonizingly. Razorvine. Lots and lots of razorvine. Killer tumbleweeds that absorb tormented souls like a Devourer. Legions of the damned forced to labor under the sun, building a ziggurat from sandstone. The ziggurat is a mile high, but it crumbles as fast as the laborers can build it, and it is an eternal futility. Malevolent, sentient canyon labyrinths whose walls and paths shift, trapping those within them. Maybe more, if I have more time. These are great, thanks Schmoe! And you totally beat me to it with the malevolent shifting canyon labyrinths! Building off Draegn's suggestion to look at the Tarim Basin for inspiration (where mummies were found), I can imagine preserved tribes, caravans, or even settlements at the bottom of the dry sand pits. These underground "sand tombs" might have portals/conduits of some type to Shaddonon the shadowy 49th layer. If petrification happens, I could see shadow fiends or night hags scouring the wastes acting as saviors with the ability to reverse the petrification entirely...or just in part...the better to torment or negotiate for the souls of the trapped. Also mirages. There's a lot of cool things you can do with mirages: A mirage hides a town so that no one outside the town can find it. It is gradually "lost" from the world. A traveler is seen in the distance, shimmering with the heat. The image briefly becomes the grinning, black face of Graz'zt, but then it is gone, leaving observers to wonder if it really happened. A mirage conveys a vision of some calamity to come. A mirage gradually s...

  • 04:53 PM - Justin Fike mentioned Draegn in post Share Your Thoughts On My Warlock Houserules
    ... arguably Warlocks strongest feature. They are the most flexible way that a character defines what their Warlock does. This way a player can "specialize" their Warlock as a spell caster by investing Invocations in additional spells like Bane and Slow once per long rest, but doing so means they lose out on utility or power options in exchange. I've been persuaded on the CHA to hit and damage. It's too strong and not really needed. At this point my baseline for Pact of the Blade is Medium armor and shield prof gained at lvl 3, multi-attack gained at level 6, Pact weapon feature can apply to two weapons of the same type to enable dual wielding. That's enough of the essentials to allow a Bladelock to function without multiclassing if that's what the player wants, and if they want to specialize in melee combat further then multiclassing is the best way to do that. So that means removing the three added invocations since they're no longer needed, which helps cut down on bloat anyway. And Draegn I heartily approve of any efforts to make Warlock's patrons have a real, in-game impact and consquences. If you've found a way to do that that is fun for your players then I say roll with it. Without having seen one of your games I'd be worried about making a Warlock player afraid to use their powers. In my game I ask my Warlock players to work with me on creating a bio for their Patron just like they do for their character (his/her/its history, personality, and goal) and then I find ways to apply that to the story. I love having a Warlock in the party because if I have a plot hook or quest that I really want them to explore I can usually find a way to tie their patron's desires into it. It's not railroading if its still player story choice, right? :)

    I would debate that the paladin is not based entirely on the "knight in shinning armour", Oath bound heroes of legend and myth are definitely not all knight in shining armor nor are their oaths monotonic ... Cuh Culaine, Sampson and (depending on presentation) Lancelot. Actually the armor seems kind of more variable than other bits at times. The oath of Cuh Cuhlaine is totemic for instance. But there definitely seems source material for it.

    I have a love hate relationship with this game. Regardless of version or edition, I found it to be extremely frustrating. Perhaps it is due to the people I played with. RAW the player whose character is so skilled that he can call the emperor on the holonet and curse him not once but twice in the same scene without consequence. The player that looks up Solo's 14th level stats, Solo who is supposed to be one of the top ten pilots in galaxy but is made to look like a chump because the player's character was built to fly rings around him at 4th level. You're thinking of a different game. The WEG version of Star Wars didn't have character levels.

  • 05:32 PM - Morrus quoted Draegn in post New survey from WotC about boxed sets
    From a psychological point of view, a box that is not full can cause people to feel they are not getting their money's worth. To this end one local shop will not stock box sets, for, the books out sell the boxes. A box set has to be special ordered. From the point of view of one's wallet, a larger box weighs more and thus shipping costs are increased. I rather have my shelves be neat and tidy, unlike my brothers's whose shelving looks like a jenga game. Well, OK then.

  • 12:23 AM - Quickleaf quoted Draegn in post A climatic ending to a thieves guild war?
    My thieving players have rounded up some independent thieves, scoundrels and assorted scum to form a band of cutthroats. With some expert help by other hirelings who have joined in they have been raging war in the back alleys of the city with the halfling thieves guild. Between being hooligans and those special hobos the thieves have managed to upset to various degrees the nobility and constabulary. So how to bring all this to a fitting conclusion? A field battle does not feel appropriate. A massive brawl in the city streets is out of place with all the eyes looking for them. The players do not want to go into the sewers where the small halflings would have advantage within the confines of the smaller pipework. What type of venue would best serve as a location to get the majority of both sides together at the same time so they might go at it? I would like the players to choose a locale. If you were the thieves which public place would you choose? How would you draw the halflings out...

    Also have consequences for using "powerful" magic. Eddings did this in his novels. The main character Garion creates a huge storm to stop a battle, after which his uncle has to travel hither to "reset" the proper weather patterns to avoid droughts, floods, etc.... This can be okay, but i personally don't want to punish players for using their powers. That's an old and overused trope that is almost never fun to play with at the table; having a power and not being able to use it because 'oops, you screwed up everything in a ten-mile radius' gets old very quickly. I know some settings use similar ideas - Dark Sun's world of Athas comes to mind - but i have lost count of the number of times i've seen 'the whole world hates magic and you will be hunted down with torches and pitchforks' or 'magic always has bad side-effects' or 'magic makes you go insane' as a 'limiter' on magic use. That runs counter to letting players have and enjoy being powerful, though again it can create adventures on its o...

    I wonder if GRR Martin might have found inspirations from Elric and Melnibone and wrote them into the Targaryens and Valyria? My brothers certainly enjoyed their Dragon Knights of Melnibone campaign. I was just looking at my Elric books and thinking that I need to re-read them.

    I wonder if GRR Martin might have found inspirations from Elric and Melnibone and wrote them into the Targaryens and Valyria? There are a lot of similarities, aren't there? Right down to the incestuous relationships in the royal house. GRRM would have been 12 when the first Elric story was published, so it's quite likely he encountered them.

    Does this require brown sauce or mayonnaise as a material component? They'll do in a pinch, but ketchup is considered ideal.

    77IM Could the bayonet be used one handed if not attached to a musket? Depends on the bayonet. The first plug bayonets, while looking like a knife, lack a handle so are awkward to hold. Socket bayonets are made to go around the muzzle and have no handle at all. Only very late in the development were sword bayonets which were supposed to be usable as sidearm. Draegn Attaching a knife to a pistol is kind of a silly thing to do, but pistol-swords were a real thing, so if somebody wanted to build that, it would probably use the stats of a pistol or a longsword (depending on how you used it) which would effectively be the same stats as a pistol with a one-handed 1d8 "bayonet". (Or 1d6 for a shortsword/scimitar version.) There were a lot of pistol-X variants made in the early days of firearms where the range was very short and reloading even more of a hassle. Pistol-shortsword, pistol-mace (the mace is on the handle and you flip it around after shooting), pistol-handaxe or pistol-buckler.

    77IM Have you considered deafening effects from firing firearms? Either temporary or permanent. I have not, because it wouldn't be in-genre.
  • 06:33 PM - jasper quoted Draegn in post Firearms This was studied on firing outdoors. Firearms discharged indoors are worse due to the sound waves being bounced back by walls and other obstructions. I see no reason why there should not be a temporary deafness condition or permanent for long term usage. If 77IM's firearms can be heard 600 feet away, what of the chap who fired a musket held up to his cheek? One could apply the effects of the deafness spell, save of be deaf for one minute. Again Knock and Shockwave don't cause hearing lost. Add hearing lost to all thunder damage and I would get behind you.

    77IM Have you considered deafening effects from firing firearms? Either temporary or permanent. Considering Knock alerts everyone within 300 feet aka American Football field but does not deafen the party, why should firearms do so?
