  • 10:45 PM - CleverNickName mentioned Ed Laprade in post Mixing Genres: Sci-Fi Campaign using 5E Rules
    ...Edition rules, and it's science fiction. I am going to download it as soon as I get home and start tinkering with it. And from what you said about the Mage Hand Press kickstarter, I'll definitely be checking that out as well. lowkey13: Thank you for the list of source material. I am especially, incredibly, super-stoked about the Numinera 5E resource! I would really love to run a Numinera campaign one of these days, and this just might be the way to introduce my table (and myself) to that system. And it's nice to see an old vrusk like Star Frontiers getting some 5E love...I played that game like crazy back in high school. DM Dave1, Capn Charlie: the ENWorld community is the best gaming community on the Internet, and I'll fight anyone who says otherwise. Thank you for pointing me to the Fifth Age material...I'll add it to my list of materials to check out when I get home. It's looking like a long, awesome weekend of sci-fi and dice! jgsugden, Ed Laprade: I picked up Starfinder as part of Paizo's most recent Humble Bundle (everybody else should, too.) The lore looks interesting, and probably wouldn't take a lot of work to bring it into any RPG system. But as far as the rules go, my gaming group made it very clear that we would be using 5th Edition rules only. (And given our past experience with Pathfinder's rigorous rules, I'm afraid they might revolt.)

  • 09:26 AM - Harzel mentioned Ed Laprade in post Survivor Rods & Staves- STAFF OF THE MAGI WINS!
    ...ter it looks like some very stale data got used. Rod of Resurrection 12 Rod of Rulership 5 Staff of Healing 20 Staff of Power 23 - 2 = 21 Staff of Striking 16 Staff of the Magi 18 Staff of the Woodlands 20 + 1 = 21 evening up the scores So, hoping that I am not wedging things even further, and so that you all can check my work, here is the result of applying the votes apparently intended, in sequence, to @Maxperson's post. @Maxperson: Rod of Resurrection 11 Staff of Healing 14 Staff of Power 22 Staff of Striking 17 Staff of the Magi 22 Staff of the Woodlands 19 @CleverNickName Rod of Resurrection 9 Staff of Healing 14 Staff of Power 23 Staff of Striking 17 Staff of the Magi 22 Staff of the Woodlands 19 @OB1 Rod of Resurrection 9 Staff of Healing 14 Staff of Power 24 Staff of Striking 17 Staff of the Magi 20 Staff of the Woodlands 19 @chrisrtld Rod of Resurrection 7 Staff of Healing 14 Staff of Power 24 Staff of Striking 17 Staff of the Magi 21 Staff of the Woodlands 19 @Ed Laprade Rod of Resurrection 7 Staff of Healing 15 Staff of Power 24 Staff of Striking 17 Staff of the Magi 21 Staff of the Woodlands 17 @Eltab Rod of Resurrection 7 Staff of Healing 15 Staff of Power 22 Staff of Striking 17 Staff of the Magi 21 Staff of the Woodlands 18 @Quartz Since you downvoted a contestant that had already been eliminated, I thought it best to just leave your votes out and suggest you just revote. @Tallifer Rod of Resurrection 7 Staff of Healing 15 Staff of Power 20 Staff of Striking 17 Staff of the Magi 21 Staff of the Woodlands 19

  • 06:47 PM - Mistwell quoted Ed Laprade in post Survivor Magic Jewelry (PART II)- SCARAB OF PROTECTION WINS!
    Well, yeah, but how do you sleep, standing up? And good luck putting on any kind of pull-over! LOL They, like almost all magic items are put away when you sleep. You just toss it back up there when you are done getting dressed. Like armor, or a weapon, or boots, etc.. The primary function of Ioun Stones isn't for sleeping. I mean, I assume you're not sleeping with a necklace of fireballs around your neck risking popping a bead off when tossing in your sleep, right? How is this a serious issue about "how does it even work"?
  • 12:35 AM - Mistwell quoted Ed Laprade in post Survivor Magic Jewelry (PART II)- SCARAB OF PROTECTION WINS!
    Ioun Stone How? How can these be used, really? I am not sure what you're asking? "When you use an action to toss one of these stones into the air, the stone orbits your head at a distance of 1d3 feet and confers a benefit to you." It's just a magical stone which orbits you, continually. Once you toss it up there, it just stays orbiting, conferring it's benefit the whole time. I mean, it is used exactly as it sounds. They give you an image of it: http://spartans.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Ioun-Stones1.jpg And here is an animation in case it's unclear: http://thumbs.modthesims2.com/img/9/7/9/3/0/2/MTS_Akabarl-623293-Ioun_Animated.gif

It was all correct, but he left a +1 in from before in the text (but the result was correct).

  • 11:26 PM - Jester David quoted Ed Laprade in post The Washington Post Weighs In On D&D!
    Writes about D&D, shows LARPers. Color me unimpressed. The only reason they care is because they can lump all RPG related stuff together. Still, there's no such thing as bad publicity. (Or so they say.)They ARE D&D players. https://www.girlsgutsgloryrpg.com/ They're just cosplayers who like dressing up when they do it.

(Or so they say.) Honestly that is the first thing I thought. I have had friends assume we dress up and put on elf ears when playing D&D since it seems they see that a lot when they come across some random article or picture of D&D players.

(Or so they say.) Did you even read the article (and see the pictures of normal folks playing)? Did you read the caption for the photo where they are a D&D group that enjoys dressing up?

  • 02:24 PM - 5atbu quoted Ed Laprade in post Who Wants A Labyrinth RPG?
    Mostly. But I tend to analyze books/movies etc. as I read/watch them. That's just how my mind works. So it was the first thing that I thought of. The fact that she never even tried did annoy me a bit, but it was a great movie all the same.I apologize for being sarcastic. ,[emoji3]

  • 09:52 PM - 5atbu quoted Ed Laprade in post Who Wants A Labyrinth RPG?
    Doesn't sound much like an RPG to me. And are you allowed to use the technique that Our Heroine should have used? (Climbing OVER the frekin' walls! They weren't that high, and had plenty of handholds. And once at the top, she could have scouted out a route that would have cut down on the time even more, every time she climbed one.)Oh my, you just didn't get it.. did you?

It's a magical place, you can be sure that if she had tried climbing, the walls would have grown up and she would never have reached the top.

  • 10:44 PM - Wik quoted Ed Laprade in post Pre-Campaign Handouts
    There are the basics, of course. Races/classes permitted or excluded. Starting level (it isn't always 1st level). Any extras the characters might get (more money, a Feat at level 1, extra equipment, etc.). Where they'll start, and as much or the world background as you feel they might need. And, for myself, a MAP! Or maybe more than one map (world, kingdom, starting city, etc.). Also, the theme of the adventure(s), if there is one. You don't want everyone showing up with a spell caster if magic is forbidden! Oo. A map is a good one! Usually I just give the players a physical copy of the map a few sessions in - with inaccuracies built in and waaaaay too many coffee stains and whatnot. :)

  • 10:53 PM - Mike Myler quoted Ed Laprade in post Mythological Figures: Tarzan (5E)
    I haven't read them in decades myself, but when I did, it was often. Not saying you shouldn't do this, just that a warning that they aren't going to be the way fans of the characters remember them might be in order. If you look there's always somebody wanting Thor to have a natural Strength of 27 or whatever. There's usually something useful mentioned though (Tarzan's dad's knife for example!) so I've resisted the urge to include a RAW disclaimer just yet. I'm thinking chaotic good instead of neutral good. He had a specific distaste for civilization and the laws of man. Awesome conversion, though; that's about as close as you could get with RAW. I wasn't sure if you'd go barbarian or beast master ranger, but barbarian works. I went with neutral good because from what I could remember he's a super naturalist with a good-heart. Not necessarily rebellious or spontaneous really, just a "this is the way the world is naturally so that's how I live my life." There's definitely a good argum...
