    At my table, The world exists for the players. Because it is their sandbox, it must be a space in which they can play, explore, create, and destroy. That doesn’t mean things are static but for player involvement. But it does mean that the majority of my design focuses on things in their proximity more than things outside that area. This holds true even for established, well-trod settings....

I don't know about anyone else's tables, but when we play at mine, we aren't in America with modern political hemming and hawing. We're in our world, fighting Orcs along side Elves.

    I think it’s wise to divide the combat encounters between big set pieces and minor skirmishes. Because by doing that, you can spend your prep time designing your set piece encounters while leaving “trash” combat encounters (random encounters, unexpected fights, etc.) to a very quick and improv-friendly rules set. If I were in your shoes and table-time was at a premium, I would run my minor...

    I had the same thought for the exact same reasons as your OP some time ago. First thing I thought of was to differentiate between sleep and rest. I decided sleep was as necessary as food and water, but didn’t itself automatically mean “rest.” Then I decided that proper rest had to be in a kind of sanctuary - a home, at minimum. To me, rest has to be reasonably free from stress or peril....

  • 06:04 PM - iserith mentioned Istbor in post Critical Role Episode #26 - spoilers!
    Sure they can. The player can close their eyes and gain the Blinded condition. At any time they can impose a negative effect on themselves. The player can describe the character as closing his or her eyes. The DM then applies the appropriate rules to that action, as necessary. So why can't a player declare "I'm terrified of spiders and suffers from acute arachnophobia. I'm making myself frightened of the drider."? Why do they need to ask "DM may I?" to hinder themselves. Is any DM really going to argue? The DM saying "No, you are NOT frightened" is so much worse... Per the rules, a player can declare being terrified of spiders and having arachnophobia. A player cannot say the character is Frightened in a mechanical sense. My assertion is that this is the DM's role and the burden of proof for that assertion is satisfied in my view by pointing to the rules of the game. Now, if you or @Istbor want to allow players to decide the mechanical effects of their actions, nobody is stopping you. I'm just saying that's not what the rules say and it's likely why someone like @robus would find what he saw on Critical Role strange (in addition to it not being telegraphed). I would find it strange, too, and said as much. Personally, I would advise a player against this. A player-imposed hindrance to a character is a hindrance to the entire team to varying degrees. It messes at some level with the difficulty of the challenge. I would instead encourage the player to write an appropriate personal characteristic (personality traits, ideal, bond, flaw) for the character regarding his or her fears, portray it accordingly with no mechanical hindrance, then take Inspiration for doing so. This encourages the behavior rather than discourages it via a disincentive.

  • 11:51 AM - Charles Rampant mentioned Istbor in post Help with 19th level boss fight
    ...ry round, not least because the player crits at least once per turn. Weakest defences in the party at AC17, but has over 200 hp. Don't let anyone tell you that the 5th edition treasure tables don't give out magic items - they absolutely do, just only after level 9. As you can see, the party have a crazy number of items, and across the board have good AC, magical damage, great movement options, and lots of utility. The last time they felt in real danger of a TPK was around level 5, I guess. Though last week they did have to use a Bead of Force to imprison themselves in order to survive the calamitous detonation of the Fortress of Three Sorrows, also in the Githyanki city. The Room You can see a map of this floor of the dungeon here. (There are another two maps associated with this dungeon, albeit much smaller.) One thing holding me back from some of Quickleaf's excellent ideas is that this is room 7 of a 60 room dungeon, including the crypts and Duthka'gith creation labs. As asked by Istbor, the players do not know where the Phylactery is, but will need to clear the rest of the dungeon to do so. They entered the dungeon via a teleport from rooms 1 to 2, and have cleared rooms 2, 3, 10, 11, and 12 so far. There is an unhallow effect in play, which you can see on page 3 of this document, which I wrote to update the rules of the dungeon.

  • 08:48 PM - QuietBrowser mentioned Istbor in post 5e Homebrew Setting: Malebolge, Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy
    Thank you both for taking the time to weigh in on this. Quartz: I appreciate the suggestion, but, personally, I'd use the various "elementalist origins" for sorcerers to represent characters with that kind of power. Easier than trying to work out how to make Druids work without Wild Shape. On a different topic while I hope that (@Chaosmancer and Istbor return to continue discussing kobolds/others take up the discussion in their absence)... whilst Malebolge is definitely a world where lots of things can try to kill you, do folks think it'd be a good idea for me to go over my 4e/Pathfinder/5e material and start drafting up a list of monsters that I, personally, would see fitting into the setting? Sort of an official monster manual for Malebolge?

  • 05:52 PM - lowkey13 mentioned Istbor in post Warlock One of the More Complicated 5E classes?
    If a player wants to play Legolas, but ends up with Larry the Cable Guy because they didn't fully grasp the complex intricacies of how a class works in actual play, and it makes them unhappy? Then that character is "bad". Maybe not to you, but in this case what you think has nothing to do with it. I think that this (and what Istbor says) are really important. Let me relate an anecdote. I was sitting in a nice modern restaurant (trendy, etc.). And at the other table, a group of people were talking about how much they loved sushi, and Japanese food, and going on and trying to impress each other with their culinary knowledge. Anyway, at one point, one of them remarked, "Yeah, what have the French ever done for cooking?" In a non-ironic way. Anyway, that stuck with me- both because of the complete absurdity of it, and because it's become a catchphrase for my friends. What's the point? That different people have different preferences. The danger comes when you try to argue that your preferences are universal - just because you really like sashimi, it doesn't necessarily follow that- 1) Everyone loves sashimi; and 2) The French have never contributed to food culture. It's a myopia we all share, but we should try to mitigate. I think, as Istbor posits, that this is a disconnect between different styles. It's tri...

  • 07:08 PM - pming mentioned Istbor in post Prestige Classes
    Hiya! Istbor, I can see what you are saying. I guess the old saying is in effect here: "I may not know what I like, but I do know what I don't like". ;) I get that 5e is a class-based system, and PrC's being "classes" (its in the name) is kind of locked into that overall system. But what I'd like to see with PrC's isn't so much 'classes', more than 'choices'. I'd like them to offer different choices for a character, mechanically speaking, and not just simply adding-on to the character. I want a PrC to be the defining aspect of the character...not just another set of abilities he/she has. I want the phrase "She is a 17th level Death Touched Warrior" to have instant meaning in game-terms...giving a overall 'package' of what the character can do, can't do and stands for (outlook on life, preferences for combat, social leaning, etc). I don't want the inclusion of a PrC to have the instant meaning of "Oh, so you can do necromantic damage when you hit. Got it". To me, the later is exactly what happens...

  • 10:44 PM - Noctem mentioned Istbor in post Ravenloft / The Black Company Campaign Idea!
    ...because those who have power have retained control over bastions of power (like large cities) and the like. So for them it's going ok, but for everone else it's a living hell. Plant life exists but not like it does in other settings. The elves who live in the last remaining forests have plants, those in the cities have plants, but outside of those areas plant life is struggling outside of corn which is one of the main foods for people to grow. Most of the open land within several miles of the cities has been planted with corn year after year. I'm still working on fleshing everything out in the OP and I'm totally open to any further details you want to share about Ravenloft and making it more pronounced. You mentioned gothic settings and the like, I was thinking of having the main cities be like that so that the players who get there for the first time have a sort of culture shock when seeing the way people dress, the way they live, the structures, etc.. So please do share :) Istbor I am really interested in that book however it's listed as 70~ american and I just don't have the cash to spend on it right now (I live in Canada). If you have any details about how you converted things to 5e or want to discuss the book for example, maybe some of the magic mechanics just to see what they are like, let me know :) Otherwise I will be using the stuff from 5e dnd. And yeah I love TBC as well and I figured Ravenloft could offer an interesting setting for mixed campaign.
  • 10:26 PM - Cody C. Lewis mentioned Istbor in post Out of the Abyss PC Races
    Totally agree with a lot of the suggestions given here; specifically Istbor and itcomeswithamap Basically, the point of a setting like this one is that it can be a unique experience. Sell them on it if you believe you can deliver something memorable. The underdark, especially if foreign to both player and characters, can be that change of pace that will get your group's juices going. So just be honest with them. "Guys I really think this can be amazing and am afraid that a bunch of characters that are familiar with the setting might take away some of the fun. But ultimately play what you want."

    Oh? There is a book? Hmm. Didn't know. I have to admit the book is one of those things where I just don't get it. It's an okay book. Nothing wrong with it. This is not a BadWrongFun rant or a YourFavoriteBandSucks posts. It was more or less a popcorn book for me. Especially compared to some of the other much better works from Pratchet and Gaiman. But I found out after I read it that a LOT of people really love the book. It's on a lot of recommended reading lists and is consistently rated very highly. It makes me wonder if there was something big I missed when I read it. One thing I will give Good Omens credit for is that the story feels like it will translate well to a movie/TV. The plot should flow well, and a lot of the interesting bits should work well visually. Much more so than many other works by Gaiman or Pratchet. And the previews looked interesting. This series will probably go on my list behind season 3 of True Detective.

By throwing rocks at one of the gargoyles (thinking it might be a living creature) and having it break off and fall, he halved the danger of the arcane trap when crossing the bridge.

    Ah. Does he have the chops then? I have seen exactly zero of what he has been in. Welp, I would say yes. IMO, I think it's similar to Heath Ledger (to use an example many people are familiar with). If you only knew him from, saym 10 Things I Hate About You, then you probably thought, "Why are they casting this guy as the Joker?" OTOH, if you had been following him since then (Brokeback, Lords of Dogtown, The Order) you realized he was doing more serious roles, and doing them well. FWIW, Pattinson has ALSO been cast in the next Nolan movie. (of course, even a good actor doesn't guarantee a good movie; Reynolds is wonderfully charming and a great Deadpool, but Green Lantern was still terrible)
  • 06:05 PM - lowkey13 quoted Istbor in post "I'm BATMAN!" - Robert Pattison
    But who is he? I seriously don't know. He is most famous as the main character in the Twilight films. He has since starred in many other films, including some Cronenberg films (such as Metropolis), the Lost City of Z, and High Life.

What, are they going to aim through their own sails and rigging? They certainly aren't going to turn all of those ships around before that dragon could fly around behind them. She'd just witnessed Rhaegal die. I don't think she'd have been in the right frame of mind to think that tactically.

    I don't know that Varys will feel any burn. That guy is good at getting out ahead of a bad time. I don't really blame him for not knowing about that Iron fleet ambush. I do blame the army in general for having not scouted at all and wonder how Danny didn't see a fleet of ships on such a nice clear day. They were tucked round the side of the island. Which is no excuse - Dany's forces should have sent at least a fast ship or two to scout the place for occupying forces before the entire fleet dropped anchor.

    I think we did see character growth. I think the disconnect is that it what is expected is linear. Instead what I see happening is Thor trying to fit into this role he was told and expected to fit into. And as his mother tell him, is that he should be who he is, and not what he is expected to be. Which is rolling back his past character arcs. And, hey, he's a prince: they seldom get to be who they are expected to be. Maybe, what he is, is just a rogue warrior out there trying to right wrongs. He's an adventurer. He now maybe realizes this. So he leaves Valkyrie as the leader of the Asgardians, not abandoning them. The catch is, that doesn't work for the MCU. Because then you have to wonder why Thor doesn't come back and help. Because he's a rogue warrior out there trying to right wrongs. So why isn't he helping when the inevitable Avengers 5 happens? Instead, he needs to have his "end" in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3. Which feels weird, as that should be about the Guardians a...

    There were other people with blue eyes she has killed. The trigger for the eureka moment in the last episode is actually a changing in the order the Red witch lists the colors. Here we see her list blue eyes last, and with some significant looks added for effect. So it isn't a huge leap that a horde of blue-eyed zombies' leader, with the same eye color, is targeted. She could have just straight up told her that she is going to kill the Night King. Why bother talking in mysteries at this point? Okay, I get that they're keeping it a surprise for us as an audience. But in the context of the story, it makes little sense to be so vague about it.

    True. It wasn't explained well. One could argue that being a super alien warlord allowed him to study the substance use his advanced tech and probable army of techs to engineer more. That would be my first guess. I don't know what the in cannon reason is though. well considering that Tony figured out time travel in half an hour after finishing the dinner dishes, theres really no reason why Thanos couldnt figure out that all he needs is a mobius strip too

    And if the enemy had got the jump on you it would be nastier - but you had them massively outclassed and only 18 vs 8. The GM should try 18 Veterans vs your PC group if they want to be nasty! :D But 13 orcs & 5 orogs vs 4 5th level, or 8th level, PCs can be a serious challenge, depending on AoE opportunities. I find the all-Barbarian parties I used to see have a much tougher time than a classic-4 group. Overall I enjoy the swinginess of 5e combat; it encourages players to take fights seriously. Not really. The only situation it would have been remotely challenging really is if the jumped us at night when some of the battlers were unarmored. Even then, the number of HP the characters had would make up for it. And the DM didn't want to be nasty, he wanted to use lower CR creatures in number to try this "bounded accuracy lets mooks be effective, yada yada yada." I mean, there are limits to how well a creature can fire an arrow. If two creatures are both proficient with the same wea...
