    Yeah, we were talking about it afterwards and that would have been the better call. However, I don't know if he'd have had the chance. The Tarrasque never got another turn, as he only had about 100 hp left. It is interesting, in that mundane fighters using weapons actually do better damage to the Tarrasque than spellcasters. It has so many defenses against spell casters that it makes them...

    I Dm’d a lvl 20 One Shot with my brothers the other day. They chose to be an Oathbreaker Paladin and a Wolf Totem Barbarian. I let them pick whatever magical items they wanted. The Paladin picked the Hammer of Thunderbolts, which also needs the Gauntlets of Ogre Power and a Belt of Giant Strength, and I said meh, whatever. He rolled for the belt and got a Storm Giant’s Belt, so his strength...

    Sobec starts running towards the other vesk, shouting a challenge in their shared Vesk tongue. "Your blood or mine will bring glory to clan and empire," he starts with a customary line, but then adds derisively, "But your blood will be nothing more than just another stain in the sand on this distant rock!" He shoots his lazer pistol once before the tiny star orbiting around his head starts to...

    Sheldon and Indigo assist Bolo in harvesting useful material from the giant eagle. Though the eagle has a suitable wingspan and enough power to carry off a colt or full grown burro, the bird appears to be all skin, sinew, and feathers, no meat. The talons are each as long as the forearm of a normal person. Of the ten, one thumb talon appears to harbor some proclivity of Way Lines. As...

    Personally, I'd have the villain have a means of escape if he's the type to not go into a fight without a way out. If nothing else, a Ring of Spell Storing with Dimension Door in it would work, or something similar, if he can't cast the spell himself. Make it obvious how he escaped, though, and make it within the rules, so the players know you're not just handwaving his escape.

I suppose your point is that the Healer Feat can do it once to every party member, though a Healer Kit only has so many uses. I guess it isn't that expensive, but still. A Party of Five can only use it for two days before it's used up. Cure Wounds can be cast as long as there are...

Which means a feathery guy randomly shows up claiming, quite persuasively, that he’s a friend and wants to help, but before they can respond a crazy cat thing runs in and starts attacking people with fire and ice.

    You also don’t count on hitting your opponent every round, we’re looking at max potential. If you only have 1 enemy, then the flamethrower isn’t the best use of your turret. But if you have 2, the damage equals the ballista, just spread out, and if there are more than 2, then you are doing more damage than the ballista can, up to 6 enemies per ballista.

    I don't know, being able to inflict 1d8 damage to everything in a 15 ft cone, which is up to 6 creatures, is pretty devastating. Add two of them in the right spot and you're doing 4d8+Int Mod (cantrip) to one creature, and 2d8 or half to up to six creatures. So it's a choice between concentrated fire on one creature (doing an extra 4d8 with two balistas) or spread damage to lots of creatures...

The tunnels twist a few times before opening up to another cavern, this one with an alcove to the right with a number of beds and chests, and a few candles on small tables. To the left is what appears to be an eating area, set up with tables and chairs, and a bar. Directly across the room is another tunnel, and is much more lively. ...

    I usually go with Inspired. I actually prefer how Tolkien handled it, with Eru, the Overgod, or big 'G' God, who created everything, and He gave authority over the world to his Valar, or little 'g' gods, who each took control over an aspect of the universe and added their own personal touches to it. And then I like how FR deals with the portfolios, where there must be a god in charge of *insert...

    Spreading the map out across the table in front of him after making sure the surface is reasonably clean, Aego studies the various landmarks. ”I’m sure we will not disappoint you,” the elf says distractedly. ”Any known kobold lairs hereabouts?” he motions to the area surrounding Bobby’s place. ”Or wizard towers?”

    The missiles hit the man dead center, and he collapses to the ground, his crossbow falling, unfired, beside him. The cavern goes quiet, but only for a moment. Distantly, through the tunnels, the sounds of fighting can be heard.

    The crossbowman grabs the cat by the scruff of the neck, lifting it up to eye level. The wagon barrels through the illusion, and it appears that one moment, the group is traveling along the road, and the next, you are in a large cavern. The driver, who’s name is Javen, pulled the horses to a stop just as they were about to slam into the other end. The crossbowman’s eyes went wide, and...

    Brother Pelegon laughs for a moment, a jovial laugh ending in a somewhat cynical tone. "We're all caught up in this, whether we want it or not," he says as if it's obvious. "There is Destiny at work here, moving the pieces. We'd best move where it wants us to move, and we'd best do so together!" Then, just above his breath, he adds, "That's what Bob told me."

He looks at the Dragonborn, and is slightly self conscious being around another dragon kin, but tries to hide it as best he can. “I understand you all have been dealing with the threat. I would like to help. I have some magic to me, and know my way around a fight.” With a glance at the Dragonborn’s color, very aware of the red scales on his back and shoulders,...

Now, closer to the fort, everyone can see how old it is. It is a central building, three stories tall, and a wall around the perimeter.

The wooden walls would be fairly easy to scale, but also have openings on either side. However, there doesn't appear to be anyone behind them.

Acrobatics is being able to flip around and have quick reflexes. Climbing has nothing to do with that.

He looks at Sayine and asks "My dear, can you peek at what the spirit is up to from above, let me know if there are kobolds scheming about?". With that, Theremin moves closer to the stairs and carefully follows the spirit, staying at a distance. I am assuming that the spell slots...

    Athletics and acrobatics aren’t he same thing, though. Just because you’re strong and athletic doesn’t mean you’ll be able to do things an acrobat can do, and visa versa. They are both related to physical ability, but are very much different skills.

    Asherah rushed up, stabbing with her spear and swinging her flail. OOC: that will help with persuassion :) tglassy, is there space enough for the horse(s) in the tunnels? Not that Quentin fights from the horseback, just asking about general dimensions "Asherah, don't rush into things!" He sighs and then rushes right after her.

You aren’t really in the dark, at least on this level of the tower with the big windows. The light is Dim, so if you don’t have Darkvision you will be at Disadvantage for Perception and Investigation unless you get a light source. Once you leave the top level into the tower below, you will be in the Dark, so all Perception will be at Disadvantage. 2. Yes, spell slots gained from leveling up, as well as the new hit points, are available. As Theremin and Mindra made their way down the stairs, they heard what sounded like panicked screaming. As they descended, they found they were leaving the light behind “Kobolds found ghost,” Sayine said, interpreting the Draconic for Theremin.

    tglassy, I suppose I assumed most Artificers would be going for Dex primary since they're a half caster. Their cantrip damage, even with +Int mod doesn't seem to compete with crossbow with arcane weapon active. The artillerist's spell damage seems like it will be pretty low, but at least they get to use their turret's bonus action each round. I like the subclasses, I just feel the base class is lacking something.

It coalesces into the image of the kobold, whole, and without the white blemishes. The form is wavering and insubstantial as it moves.

    ...deed worth the effort as, even wounded, they refused to fall. Instead they were amazingly well organised as they thrust their spears at him. He was quickly forced to throw up a magical shield as their spear lunges quickly overwhelmed his ability to parry. Even with the shield up, a lucky sling stone struck him in the leg as some of the other kobolds made their way through the burning webs. The alchemist continued to work at burning the web away as one of the armoured kobolds broke free of the webs and moved to cover him while he burnt the other free. A kobold sorcerer came out of the side tunnel and watched as Eko distracted Lorenn's opponents. Cleverly spotting that Lorenn would be a difficult target with his shield up, the sorcerer sent a bolt of fire hurtling at the owl familiar and Eko burst into flames.

    tglassy Goes to show that any rules answer is going to be subject to the caveat that a given DM may rule differently. Your interpretation makes sense from a lore perspective, but in terms of RAW there can't possibly be a difference between how the spell works when the target is a sorcerer and when the target is a wizard. Mechanically a creature's "game statistics" are the stat block (for an NPC/monster) or the character sheet (for a PC), minus the bits that don't actually interact with any rules (such as alignment, backstory, etc.). (I recognize you're not claiming your reading is RAW; just wanted to clarify that)

    ... 0 Liam looked out over a rather dark, desolate landscape. Where once the green grass of late summer had waved in a warm breeze, the air was cold and dry and the grass gray. The trees of the Ravesnwood and Cold Wood had either lifeless branches or brown, dead leaves rustling like bones in the light rain, the wind sounding like moaning voices, giving it a dead and haunted aspect. The road still stretched to the distance, but it was broken and uneven, desolate. The sky was cloudless, but there was no sun, merely a diffuse lightness that made it dull grey. The tower itself seemed much as it had been before, but now it was whole, and made of a dark obsidian stone, as black as night. It was also free standing, with no hint of the other outbuildings they had seen before. The wall surrounding the tower as complete, the same black stone, with strong, black gates closed shut. The entire construction seemed more angular, sharper, more...sinister.

    Answering a few of tglassy's Questions: (Better late than never!) It might be too late to change this, and it might be a little meta, but knowing what I know about goblins, if both Green Flame Blade’s extra fire damage were to hit the same goblin, the one that got frosted, instead of the first one hitting the hobgoblin, then that goblin would likely be dead. Having one less goblin to worry about would be very nice going in to the next round... I can't remember now but I think at the time, the Hobgoblin was the only one within 5' of the the goblin you killed. The other goblin was within 5' of TITUS, but not the Goblin. At any rate, you're right that it's a bit late (and a bit meta). I'll keep it in mind in the future, though. (I mean to maximise your use of the spell as best I can, within reason). Also, the goblin that shied back, did he move back and therefore grant an Opportunity Attack, or did he just not attack? Just fluff. I think I was describing his terrible miss as him chickening out.

  • 10:30 PM - Xeviat quoted tglassy in post Durable Feat is weak, Healer feat is too strong
    So the Healer Feat is worth a lvl 1 Cure Wounds at lvl 2? And isn't worth a 5th lvl Cure Wounds until lvl 20? Would you let someone get regenerate or mass heal from a feat? My point was the healer feat is, in effect, giving a spell slot, refreshing on a short or long rest, for every person in your party for the low low cost of a healer's kit. My point was the amount of healing it gets is really high. I've seen it taken twice. I've also seen Inspiring Leader taken once. And I haven't gotten to be in too many 5E games. When I do get a chance to play and not DM, the character I'm planning on making is a Bard built like a Warlord and both of those feats are on my docket to take.

    The point is it CAN hit 6 targets, and as my post said, even if it's only hitting 3, it's doing more damage than the Ballista can. And because it's a save, and not an attack roll, even for those who save, they still take half damage, so some damage is done every turn. I don't understand why people are arguing with me because I'm pointing out that the Turret can hit 6 targets. Nobody says "Yeah, but the odds of hitting a lot of people with fireball are so small, it doesn't even matter." Fireball can hit a 20 ft sphere, so they can hit lots of targets. it doesn't matter how many they can hit, it matters they can hit a lot of them. The turrets do 1d8 damage to up to six people for each turret. They don't need an upgrade. They're an AOE attack. It doesn't matter that "You'll never get six people lined up". It matters that it can hit six squares at once. The more people are there, the more it can hit, up to six people. AOE attacks are a thing in DND and most people think they're prett...

    You also don’t count on hitting your opponent every round, we’re looking at max potential. If you only have 1 enemy, then the flamethrower isn’t the best use of your turret. But if you have 2, the damage equals the ballista, just spread out, and if there are more than 2, then you are doing more damage than the ballista can, up to 6 enemies per ballista. Assuming the flamethrower will hit 6 targets, is like assuming that both (or even 1) of the ballistas will score critical hits. It's not likely to happen.
  • 05:54 PM - Xeviat quoted tglassy in post Artificer Update: results of the survey and more
    The flamethrower is a 15 ft cube, which can catch 6 people, per turret. So it’s 1d8x12, potentially, or 2d8x6 if you hit six people twice. I'd never count on getting 6 people in a blast every round.

    IAlchemists can add their Int roll to either healing or Acid/Poison damage, so Acid Splash and Poison Spray become viable, and therefore makes him more SAD if those are the main form of combat. The problem with those cantrips is that they are mediocre. Poison's pray range is horrid, and acid splash 1d6 is low and scales poorly (ie it gets comparatively worse with time). The solution to me is easy - add fire to the list. Alchemist's fire is a thing! It won't overshadow the warlock with eldrich blast, because the stat damage is only added once. Yeah, a repeating Heavy Crossbow is awesome, but really only the Battle Smith gets the most out of it due to using Int instead of Dex. If any of the others try to use it instead of their own skills, they have to up both Int and Dex to accomplish the same thing. I concur... but with the 1rst level spell (arcane armament?) you can add 1d6 to your crossbow, so leaving it behind hurts.... An alternative is to mostly use spells that don't r...

    And a lvl 17 Artilarist is dealing 4d10+5 Firebolt damage with a +13 to hit, plus either 4d8 Balista with the ability to push, or up to 12d8 fire spread out amongst up to 12 enemies, or healing the party 2d8+10 health every round, or any combination of those, all as a bonus action that the Rogue is using for either his second attack or to disengage and run away. But at the same time they also are granting half cover to everyone nearby, which is not specified to only work on ranged attacks so it effectively grants a +2 to everyone’s AC and Dex saves, and have four Infused Magical items besides their Enhanced Wand that they are either using themselves, or giving to the rest of the party, all giving passive bonuses. Plus being a half caster. Meanwhile the Rogue has to make sure they even HAVE a Sneak Attack option, which they don’t always. No, you can stack the same Turret. It says you CAN have different Turrets, not that you have to. Are you doubling up the turret damage? I'm seei...
  • 02:06 AM - Xeviat quoted tglassy in post Artificer Update: results of the survey and more
    I don't know, being able to inflict 1d8 damage to everything in a 15 ft cone, which is up to 6 creatures, is pretty devastating. Add two of them in the right spot and you're doing 4d8+Int Mod (cantrip) to one creature, and 2d8 or half to up to six creatures. So it's a choice between concentrated fire on one creature (doing an extra 4d8 with two balistas) or spread damage to lots of creatures (doing an extra 2d8 to six creatures, potentially making that an extra 12d8 of total damage). Plus, the flamethrower always done some damage, even if they save. A 17+ level rogue is doing something like 9d6+Dex at this point, extra +1d6 with TWFing or crossbow expert, with minimal chance to miss landing sneak attack. Also, you can't stack the same turret.

  • 04:33 AM - dnd4vr quoted tglassy in post skill proficiencies point buy
    The bigger idea was not just to pair skills and ability scores as needed, a variant rule that I have to say I'm the only one I see doing around here, but to trim down the skill list so everything on it was meaningful. Combining similar choices like Athletics & Acrobatics, and leaving them differentiated by the ability score. And folding little used ones like Medicine into other skills, again differentiated by ability score. Athletics and acrobatics aren’t he same thing, though. Just because you’re strong and athletic doesn’t mean you’ll be able to do things an acrobat can do, and visa versa. They are both related to physical ability, but are very much different skills.I agree, I see a very large difference between Athletics and Acrobatics. The only issue there is it adds rolling of dice where previously there was none. Personally, as a DM, I prefer looking at the PC's Passive Perception, and whoever has it at or higher than, for instance, the bad guy's Stealth roll total - or 10+Stealth bon...

    You’re entire argument just died. You just said you don’t worry about it and just narrate your character as having a concept and fluffing the mechanics to fit. Which is what you have been saying you DON’T want to do. No, I’ve been saying I don’t want to cast spells and pretend they’re something other than spells. I have no problem with narrating things to suit my character, what I have a problem with is trying to pretend a spell isn’t a spell just because you used Calligrapher’s Tools instead of an Orb to cast it. At this point you are just arguing to argue. If you hate spellcasting so much and lack the creativity to fluff something into something else then go play a different game. I hear Pathfinder has so many options it’ll make your head spin. Have fun. Or, how about this for a novel idea: I provide feedback in the public playtest survey that exists for the very purpose of helping refine the 5e Artificer into something that the majority of interested players are satisfied with, to ins...

    Because this is literally what they are doing. No, they're not. In the current iteraction, Infusions cost their own unique resource, independent from spell slots. My suggestion is to consolodate those resources. Have Infusions cost spell slots and get rid of the separate limited number of Infusions per day. Then the folks who don't want to cast spells with their Artificer can spend those spell slots on more infusions, and the folks who do want to cast spells with their Artificer can spend their spell slots on that. "Infusions" are a workable prototypes of magical items they are making. "Spells" are less than that, unstable magical items they are tinkering with and trying to make work, but don't have the stability that "Infusions" have. That's not what spells are. If that makes you bent out of shape, just change the word "Spells" to "Infusions" and change "Infusions" to "Greater Infusions" or whatever. It really, really isn't that big of a deal. But at that point, why have "greater infusi...

    That runs entirely counter to the conceits of Eberron, where the goddamn cook in the burger shop down the street is probably a Magewright knows Prestidigitation and Purify Food and Drink, and so do all of his competitors. Given that the Artificer will be releasing in either the final version of the WGtE or the upcoming as-of-now unnamed Eberron book being designed by Welch, it makes sense that the Artificer is a Magewright on steroids. I think a non-spellcasting Artificer would fit fine in Eberron. It’s not like they wouldn’t be able to make scrolls, potions, wands, etc. with which to produce the effects of spells. I think people get too worked up over "Spell Slots". They're just a mechanic, a means by which the character can do something. They don't mean "magical power". or at least, they don't have to.

"Spells" and "Spell Slots" are a way of giving a variety of options for things to do in a given situation, and a limit on how to do them, without writing out a special mechanic just for this class to do the same. The pdf even says as much in the sidebar. You wanna cure someone, but don't want to be channeling "Divine magic"? Sure, you have a salve you can put on them that you've been working on. You want to cast "Disguise Self", but with no magic? Sure, you figured out how to do a hologram on yourself, either through advanced tech or Rune Magic or something similar. This way, there's a huge list of effects they can do (spells) but a limit on how many times they can do them (spell slots).

    Ok. Grabbing by the wrist was an example of being grappled, and one that has entirely too much focus put on it. In fact, since being grappled does not in any way prevent your from taking actions using both hands, we can conclude that grappling necessarily involves grabbing the opponent by any part of the body that is not a wrist/arm.
  • 04:42 PM - jasper quoted tglassy in post Grappling with Mirror Image
    I've been trying to find information on this, but everyone always asks about grappling someone else who is using Mirror Image, or being grappled while using Mirror Image. I want to know how effective it would be to grapple while using Mirror Image. So you cast Mirror Image, then you Grapple someone. Let's say you manage to shove them prone as well. My thoughts on this are that they would then have disadvantage on attacks against you, and even if they hit, you could potentially direct the attack to one of the images. One thing I've seen people point out is that if the attacker can perceive with something other than sight, then Mirror Image has no effect, and if you're Grappling, then they are "touching" you, thereby perceiving with something other than sight, but that doesn't make sense to me. A grapple could just be grabbing someone's wrist. The Mirror Image could show four people grabbing your wrist, all moving around confusingly. Only one is actually touching you, but unless ...

  • 06:28 AM - 5ekyu quoted tglassy in post Control Flame in Combat?
    It’s not that I WANT to do more than intended, it’s why I asked the question here to get a consensus. The description says you can spread the fire to fill a five foot cube adjacent to it. Fire is naturally painful, and it doesn’t say, like Shape Water does, that the space cannot have a creature in it. So if I’m in a burning building made of wood, and I’m fighting a goblin for some reason, and we’re standing next to fire, and I use the Control Fire cantrips to spread that fire into his space, you’re saying that would only do 1 point, like hitting him with a torch? Alchemist Fire s not Magical Fire and it does 1d4 of fire damage at the beginning of every turn unless it is put out. But then the DMG says “burned by coals” would be 1d10 and “stumbling into a fire pit” is 2d10. Having the ground underneath you erupt into flames should be comparable to “stumbling in a fire pit”, but I’d agree that 2d10 seems like a bit much for a cantrips that isn’t meant for combat. The main thing is that fi...

  • 12:53 AM - MarkB quoted tglassy in post Grappling with Mirror Image
    RAW, Mirror Image simply says that if they are able to perceive you with senses other than sight, specifically mentioning Blindsight or Truesight, then Mirror Image has no effect. I’ve read where some people believe that by being grappled, they are “perceiving” you through a sense other than sight, I.e. touch. But I’m not convinced that would work, if I were grabbing you and three other me’s were, too. Sure, you’d only feel the one, but people rely on their eyes a whole lot, and in the confusion of a fight, I think it is probable that the target could swing a punch at the wrong face. Think about how that actually feels in practice - someone grabbing your arm, and you trying to pull away or twist in their grip. You don't only know the sensation of their hand on your arm - you also have a very accurate feeling of the leverage they're exerting upon you, they way they're affecting your balance, the directions in which you have the most or least freedom of movement. That gives you a very acc...
