    I understand it it's too much to disclose before the book officially releases, but if it isn't, what classes would you recommend for Verdan PCs? Any further tips for playing them?

    Are you talking about 5e Paladin oaths with that last one? I thought people loved those. Or are you referring to something else?

    Yeah no. What defines a race/species/people is their fluff, how they fit into the world. You don't need to squeeze them into even tighter a box. I already know how to differentiate in roleplay Amber the Dwarf Cleric from Silaqui the Elf Fighter from Alberich the orphaned Elf Artificer raised by Amber's family. I don't need unnecessary racial restrictions to know that an Elf and a Dwarf won't...

    Has the Artificer ever been fantasy Batman/MacGuyver? From talking with people on the r/Eberron Discord, I got the impression that the 3.5 version needed to infuse items to use spells but their infusions followed an otherwise normal spellcaster's progression. Meanwhile, the 4e version casted spells normally. Since 5e has the goal of keeping everything streamlined, it makes sense to absorb...

    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...

    They can go die in a hole; if the Psion and the psionics subsystem comes out as bloated as the Mystic was, that thing is getting slam-dunked into the trash can. Gith PCs and psionic monsters have been using componentless spells for the past 5 years and those work fine.

    So why should we have to create an entirely new, hyperrelaistic hyperspecific hypernloated system for weapon accuracy, damage, and reloading for one specific wepaon type, rather than adapting it into the already existing 5e weapon system? Why do you care so much about a firearm being hyperrealistic when swords and crossbows aren't? Why are people arguing for increased system bloat?

  • 08:22 AM - Charlaquin quoted Psyzhran2357 in post Chaotic Good Is The Most Popular Alignment!
    Not who you were talking to, but I assume in a heroic fantasy context, by the time the Paladin is in a place to even dream of enacting those reforms, there are a lot of heads rolling around on the ground, most of them belonging to the LE tyrants. I'd be surprised if the incumbent administration didn't have to be removed by force. So the Paladin is still gonna go smite some fools. Oh, for sure! One way or another, there's some violence being done. The difference as I see it is, once the tyrants are overthrown, the LG Paladin says "Now to begin the work of establishing a new state, to restore just order to this society." The CG rogue says, "Now you're free to live your lives without the oppressive influence of a state!" And the NG Cleric says, "Now you'll need to decide for yourselves where to go from here."

    https://i.redd.it/renfu97xwww21.jpg I always defer to this chart when discussing alignments. In general terms, ai'm running under the impression that D&D ethics, if it can even be called that, run on a mix of deontology and virtue ethics, with consequentialism relegated to a distant third. So in general, evil actions done for a good cause would still be evil. However, one evil act does not an evil person make; only if they become a regular habit can that person be described as evil. In terms of the Blood War specifically, I feel that if you ask enough people in-universe who know enough about it to make an informed judgment, you'd get a lot of answers of either "it's evil, but it's necessary", or "it's a necessary evil, but it's still evil".

    Are you talking about 5e Paladin oaths with that last one? I thought people loved those. Or are you referring to something else? Yeah 5e oaths are great. I guess what’s “missing” is a rule that the DM can take away the player’s powers? Try proposing them on the Paizo forums. Try proposing they work better than alignment for this purpose, that alignment restrictions don't make sense for other classes, or that there might be Paladins of alignments other than Lawful Good, Lawful "Good", or Lawful Evil. In the minds of these fans, the abject hypocrisy of the Gray Guard is perfectly acceptable, but the concept of a Holy Liberator is an affront to the very concept of the Paladin.

    See, I'm a young whippersnapper, and I don't understand the love for racial class restrictions. They're the #1 thing that defines the race. Racial abilities and penalties at 1st level are already too insignificant at 1st level, and get progressively worse as the character gains levels. Since AD&D abolished the original racial classes, the differences between these supposedly distinct sentient beings have grown steadily fainter. 4e's racial abilities were actually, ironically, a breath of fresh air that, once again, had to be taken away from us to satisfy the worst parts of the former 3.X fanbase.

  • 09:45 PM - Tony Vargas quoted Psyzhran2357 in post What lore from previous editions do you wish stayed?
    It seems there's a mentality behind limiting options and codifying behaviour prevalent in older RPGs and their communities that I'm failing to grasp as to why they're good things. There were competing carrot or stick philosophies of encouraging RP. 1e Paladins, Druids, Assassins, alignments, race restrictions &c were examples of the 'stick' - toe the line in how you play your character or the DM will punish you. 5e Inspiration is an example of a 'carrot.' Maybe, because I'm an old timer, while the former look like a bad idea, in retrospect, they at least feel like D&D, while the latter looks like it was waylaid in the alley behind some indie game studio, and woke up in 5e. Ultimately, though, mechanical 'encouragement' of RP - carrot or stick - is a little off, IMHO, RP is just part of playing an RPG, if the mechanics are good for play, they're good for RP, if they restrict play, they restrict RP.

Why race-class restrictions though. It seems there's a mentality behind limiting options and codifying behaviour prevalent in older RPGs and their communities that I'm failing to grasp as to why they're good things. I don't use them, but I imagine they're popular because they provide an upfront way to define the setting that the players can immediately recognize. You can write "dwarves dislike and distrust magic" 50 times in your campaign gazetteer, but a rule that says "dwarves can't be wizards or sorcerers because they dislike magic" really communicates the concept to the player...

  • 09:14 PM - Celebrim quoted Psyzhran2357 in post Torture Should Not Work in Dungeons & Dragons
    Would liberal use of Dominate Person or Geas for the purposes of interrogation count as torture? I can only answer how my campaign works. In general, mind control spells in my campaign world are treated legally as equivalent in distaste to rape (one violates the body, the other the mind). So if anything, most people would find them more distasteful than physical torture, and would certainly consider them equally violent. (We don't consider violation of the body less violent if it was done by drugging someone insensible to the act.) Societies that respected individual liberty would probably be more tolerant of torture than the use of mind controlling magic, and more collectivist societies that employed them would strongly tend toward evil. I can imagine a non-evil society or character employing them in a 'Dirty Harry' type situation in an attempt to save a life, but it would likely be in a situation where the character would be, "The life of someone else is more important than my honor"...

    Would liberal use of Dominate Person or Geas for the purposes of interrogation count as torture? I would say so, yes. There's some magic that are less invasive, requires a lower spellcasting level and are more efficient than dominating a person or using a geas. Like - Command: Answer or Reveal (after asking a question) Detect Thought Calm Emotion + Friend Zone of Truth Hex -> Charisma All non-lethal, if still a little unethical from my point of view.

    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 ...

    What happens if you lose it, it gets stolen, it's destroyed, etc? Wasn't that the problem with the previous version of the Artificer? That if your robot or your gun was destroyed, you were SOL? If the beastmaster can get a replacement for Fido, I see no reason there couldn't be a class feature to expedite a replacement for the MP. And if MP was a class feature instead of a subclass feature, then it seems likely that the artificer could get his/her toy back faster then the BM can get Fido II..... I admit this was lacking in the previous version of the artificer, but that doesn't mean it couldn't have happened.

    You can't change cantrips on level-up. You cna only change 1st level spells and above. Normally with any other class you would be correct. However below is a direct quote from the latest version of the Artificer: "Cantrips At 1st level, you know two cantrips of your choice from the artificer spell list below. At higher levels, you learn additional artificer cantrips of your choice, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Artificer table. When you gain a level in this class, you can replace one of the artificer cantrips you know with another cantrip from the artificer spell list."

    A single nation of Scales stuck in Q'barra with little contact with greater Khorvaire? That's your dealbreaker? Of all things? Some people can be iredeemably petty and pathetic. Why do a disproportionate amount of them have to be on RPG forums, ranting about lawns and yelling at clouds? There's mention of "half-dragon lizardfolk" living in Q'barra in the 3e book. They just called them out as Dragonborn in the later editions. Not a big deal. As to the announcement... Yay Eberron! :cool:

    Reading comprehension 0%, final course grade F, pleaew withdraw from this program, pleaseleave this institution and never come back. Not even getting into the grammatical and typographical errors of someone starting off with "reading comprehension 0%", but let's back up a bit and say this: Mike Mearls, on behalf of Wizards of the Coast, said the PDF would be updated with new material. People paid $20 for the PDF based off that. Wizards of the Coast then releases a $50-60 hardcover on the same material. So either the people who paid $20 for the PDF are not getting this updated material, meaning they were deceived...or they are getting this updated material, which devalues the still-as-yet unreleased book. No matter what happens here, unless Wizards of the Coast comes up with some details as to what is and is not included in the Eberron book and what recompense (if any) they're giving to people who bought the Wayfarer's Guide to Eberron, people are going to speculate. And that speculation is not...
