    Gated might be a better term; to get from Eberron to The Abyss requires first going to the Ethereal, Deep Ethereal, then to the Great Wheel, rather than a simple portal like Faerun requires. Likewise, a Faerun mage can't get to Feria as easily as an Eberron mage can. As such, it might not be an airtight seal, but it's usually worth the effort for Eberron natives to go to the Great Wheel and vice...

    Not quite true... So it appears that Eberron, at least, is a closed system just on the outer edges of the Great Wheel that you access by travelling deep into Deep Ethereal. I wager Athas's the Gray will be a similar filter/gated garden cosmology, while Oerth, Faerun, Krynn, and such will share the Great Wheel. As for Ravnica, I think the we won't get anything more official than "its up...

    Hey dndphilmont, long time no see... I see you haven't yet given up on the dream of the One True Setting (TM) that combines nearly every inch of terrain TSR or WotC has ever produced into a massive, internally consistent megaverse. Problem is, I don't exactly think there is as much a market for this as you might think there is. Comic Book crossovers generally work because they focus on...

    I'd be ok if the artillerist created a weapon and had the option to make it create a tripod mount and fire independently of the artificer wants.

    Core yes. But I'm talking core, and splats, and PO, and that's not even getting into supplements. That was a problem for me BitD when I didn't have enough experience to balance and customize things properly. These days, I can handle that better, but much of what I want to do 3e does already.

    I was curious because like the artificer, they have multiple competing mechanics (spell slots, invocations, patrons pacts and arcana) that mostly just replicate spells with an extra dose of spooky flavor. I see a lot of kinship between the artificer and warlock as flavorful alt-spellcasers with multiple sources of magic and a ton of customization.

    Just stopping in to say this is wonderful and was the missing info I was looking for to bridge the gap between Stormwrack and Saltmarsh. The stats you used for the schooner is very close to what I was calling a caravel, but I was just trying to convert the 3e stuff over. I'll be using this and look forward to updates. That said, I noticed a typo; in the carrack sidebar, you have "us" not "use".

I'm reminded of just why I went fully over to 3e BitD. 2e has a lot of great ideas, but the rules, well they have problems. 1e has a lot of passionate fans, and I think it's because the early edition is fairly consistent, largely being under Gary's direction.

    No, it is definitely different. No one but the poet traveled through time. Only Sisko and Akorem Laan entered the wormhole to talk with the prophets. The trope would require everyone not time traveling themselves to forgot the old timeline. The episode is Accession.

If the only way to get rid of a bad ruler (or at least some think is bad) is murdering him and everyone standing between you and him, it can't guarantee peace.

Most of the UAs were late 2018 into 2019, and the gap between UA and finished product can be really small (Ravnica had a UA a few months before the book came out, sidekicks were playtested in Jan for a product coming in June). They have the feedback they need for everything but the second round of artificer; and if I full book doesn't come out this...

Meine aktuelle Gruppe ist ansässig in Emden. Wir haben Spieler aus dem Leeraner, Wittmunder und Oldenburger Umfeld.
Unsere Gruppe leidet im Moment ein wenig darunter, dass einige Spieler jetzt auch am Wochenende arbeiten müssen.
Daher wäre "Frischfeisch" gerne gesehen. Wir spielen Freitags (20 Uhr) und Samstags (18 Uhr), und normalerweise gehen die Sessions 5-8 Stunden (so dass man am nächsten Tag besser ausschlafen können sollte ;) )

Wir tendieren öfter eher in Richtung Hack & Slash und Powergaming, aber wissen eine gute Motivation für die Gewalt wohl zu schätzen. In dem "GNS" Spektrum würde ich unsere Gruppe eher als "Gamist" bezeichnen, mit vielleicht geringen Neigungen auch zu Narrativem.

Wir sind gerade dabei, unsere D&D 3.5 Runde nach D&D 4 zu konvertieren, da wir das neue System definitiv bevorzugen. Wir spielen aber auch andere Systeme außer D&D, obwohl es im Moment das Hauptsystem ist.
Torg, Warhammer und Shadowrun sind Spiele, die wir schon öfter gespielt haben. To

    Mustrum_Ridcully - you're spoiler tags don't work. Just finished the series. The season finale was not what I was expecting, although, to be fair, it's foreshadowed quite a few times in earlier episodes. Much more low key. For a show about an invulnerable strong guy, there are surprisingly few actual fights in the show. I'm still mulling over whether I really like the season, or if I'm disappointed. I'm really not sure.

  • 02:37 AM - Blue mentioned Mustrum_Ridcully in post Anyone playing Harebrained Schemes Battletech?
    Great summary Mustrum_Ridcully. Building off your excellent foundation, a few more things: Mechs have a stability rating, and some weapons do stability damage, with melee attacks doing the most. You have five bars to fill up before you fall, and an extra protection that you can't fall from an attack unless you were Unsteady before it. Unsteady is some number of those bars filled (depending on your pilot rating). So you can't go from "okay" to down in one hit. Movement options are move (allows action), sprint (ends turn) or jump (allows action). They don't seem to penalize attacks like they do in TT. Also, they give you "pips" of evasion, up to 4 normally (more with high skills), and each mech that attacks it removes a pip. (There's also a turn-ending ability called "sensor lock" which removes two and locks it in for indirect fire.) Indirect fire is exactly what it sounds - if you have LRMs in range and any of your mech has eyes on a target, you can fire LRMs, even over blocking terrain. There's a penalty ...

    ... he uses than anything inherent in the particular setting... In other words I'm still not seeing what you describe above as being inherently difficult to play out in Planescape... <snip> Again this seems more a commentary on GM style/decisions than on any particular setting insofar as this can be done in virtually any setting if the GM wantsI don't agree that this can be done in virtually any setting. For instance, there is really nothing in the Grand Duchy of Karameikos, as presented in the Expert rulebook, to support the sort of play I describe. The GM and players would have to write it all themselves. As I've posted in other threads that you've participated in, I don't find that Planescape frames the players (via their PCs) directly into the sorts of conflict/value questions I am interested in; nor that it provides the GM with story elements to frame such conflicts. A simple example: 4e presents the gods as antagonists the PCs might overcome, whereas in Planescape (as per Mustrum_Ridcully's post that I quoted upthread) there is no expectation of, nor real provision for, PCs overthrowing (for instance) the Lady of Pain. The general tendency of Planescape is towards asserting and presenting a type of relativism, and presenting individual beliefs/perspectives as merely partial: as Neonchameleon has suggested in this thread (or, at least, that's what I've taken from his posts), the symmetry of the Great Wheel plus the whole "beliefs shape the world" implies that all persepctives are equally valid and hence that any attempt to cling to a particular perspective is a partiality that is ultimately arbitrary, even indefensible. I also find that Planescape makes a big deal of secret backstory (eg the yugoloth stuff that Shemeska and others love) and quirks like angels and demons drinking together (and perhaps falling in love) in Sigil, the Great Modron March, etc. As I already posted in this thread, Quickleaf is the only poster on these boards who has outlined an approa...

    Nah, the novel or comics and the game already have found ways for Data to return. He basically takes over B4 thanks to B4 having gotten his... data transfer. Well, there are a couple of ways this has gone: (From Memory Alpha) "In the novel Cold Equations: The Persistence of Memory, Doctor Bruce Maddox is contemplating deleting Data's memory engrams from B-4, who is kept in storage along with the remains of Soong's other prototype, Lore, and Lal, Data's daughter, when they are stolen by the Breen. Doctor Soong – who survived his death by transferring his mind into an android body far more Human in appearance than Data's – manages to recover his "children", and transfers Data's memories from B-4 into his own body, unable to complete the new body he had been attempting to construct for his "son".

Personally, I like the direction of the movies to date; it's stripping action to the core.

Major Kira remembers that it was an unfinished work, but when she checks the historical data, she finds the work completed and that the poet didn't disappear. That's not really a logical paradox - that's merely the typical memory-discontinuity found in anyone involved with time travel. It is not so much a paradox as a trope. I'm talking about outright Grandfather Paradox stuff, where the actions taken during time travel make the action of time travel outright impossible.

For people that forgot, most of the movie takes place in an alternate timeline, basically a the point where the USS Kelvin encounters the Narada under Nero. However, the Narada and Nero come presumably from the "Prime" Timeline (where all the other Star Trek series played in). That does seem likely, especially given the echoed "but then, the unthinkable happened" line. The tricky part there is that Star Trek's portrayal of altered timelines has always been that it doesn't create multiple parallel universes - if an event in the past alters the course of history, that new timeline takes over and the existing one goes away. That's consistent through City on the Edge of Forever, First Contact and quite a few other examples. In order to restore a timeline you need to be someh...

    This is a common claim I see, but who is better qualified how much story they have to tell than the ones that write the story? If they said they had something for 6 episodes, why would you assume that if they had been given more they would have written anything better, and not just made it more boring? I wouldn't assume that because it's Dumb & Dumber and their writing has been bad since Season 5, when the series largely passed the books. But the biggest source of fatal flaws in this particular season is that it's rushed and left no room for character development to lead into its most "shocking" moments.

  • 10:32 PM - Umbran quoted Mustrum_Ridcully in post Avengers: Endgame SPOILER THREAD
    Edit: Just read Umbran's previous posts, and it could be that the infinity stones aren't as special for the "safety" of a universe as I thought Well, we need to hope not. Because in Earth-199999, they are now *gone*. Thanos destroyed them. So, like, if you were looking or Adam Warlock in Guardians 3... he can't have the Soul Stone in his forehead. Unless they have something like, "Thanos thought he could destroy billions-of-year-old singularities, permanently?!? That's rich! Nope, they reconstitute themselves, and off we go again!" Cap was sent to put back all the stones they borrowed. We can perhaps presume he succeeded - none of the timelines end up lacking stones they need in what we think of as the past. Going forward, however, if they are necessary for something, there's a problem.

    Will the markup at least appear to warn people, or is it silently hidden, with the text appearing without any hitns it might be in a tag? And why doesn't Tapatalk support something like that? Are the developers not using their own software to read message boards, spoiler tags are not exactly uncommon in discussions? Or is SBLOCk some unusal special syntax only used by 1 % of vbulletin forums because vBulletin still hasn't standardized its tags? Don't we have a similar problem with quote tags? Or is it EN Worlds fault for not using standard tags? Yes, no, you’d have to ask them, don’t know, it’s a custom tag, don’t know - do we?, I think “spoiler” works?

    I don't remember anything from the novels about the Night King, and should we not have learned much more by now about him?There’s an historical figure called the Night’s King in the books, but no king of the white walkers has been introduced yet. In terms of the show’s Night King, I think we’ll have to wait for one of the spin-off series (apparently there are four in the works?!) to elaborate on his backstory / motivations.

    I wonder if it wouldn't be better to put those rumors into spoiler tags, since if they are true, they are spoilers. We won't know until its out, I suppose, but I can imagine some people don't want to be that close to the truth. On the other hand, they probably should avoid watching Trailers, too. I don't love it, but it might be something to create a bit of a surprise. I think it would only really be interesting if Rey were to hold the Emperor's soul. Rey has lost no fight against Kylo so far, why should we expect it to be different? Unless the situation will not be a final fight between the two. But that would be a bit of a bummer, killing of the heroine in the last episode of the trilogy. (Plus "politically" very unfortunate.) Sure. It is just rumors and such (so high chance it's wrong) but , it's not hard just to put spoiler tags around it just in case. I went above and edited my post so that the rumors and speculation are now in a spoiler box.

    Maybe it happened so that all the people Arya killed so far didn't have blue eyes? Seems questionable, but I won't sift through the episodes to figure it out ;) 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.

    But maybe not. I don't remember anything from the novels about the Night King, and should we not have learned much more by now about him? His theme song is Behind Blue Eyes by The Who. It is known.

    But how would the time travel mechanism "know" which option to pick? That's what I thought the anchor point, base plate they start on was for to make sure you get back to the right dimension. Since Steve and Tony jumped further into the past with just the suits, no base station, it seemed you don't need it to travel into the quantum realm and through time. But yeah Steve taking the long way back doesn't make sense if they are actually visiting alternate dimensions... unless of course we are just seeing the dimension where Steve travelled the long way back, and not really the same as the one he left, even though there is a base station there (perhaps the Steve that left that dimension is dead in a ditch?). If there are multiple dimensions then pretty much any outcome is possible. The movie has a load of improbable things, like all of Peter Paker's class being part of the 50% to disappear, or all the ladies lining up (erm Hope, weren't you at the van they are trying to get the glove to a second ago an...

  • 10:54 PM - RangerWickett quoted Mustrum_Ridcully in post Avengers: Endgame SPOILER THREAD
    I really liked how the trailers basically spoil absolutely nothing of importance, and about 10 minutes you have no idea how the movie will go, and I don't think anyone predicted this. I guess that is subverting expectations in the good way. Up to Old Steve Rogers on the bench, it made perfect sense to me. You can't change the past. It's set. When you travel in the past,you are really traveling to a parallel universe. You can do there whatever you want, including stealing stuff, and use it for your own purposes, it has no effect on the timeline you come from. Of course, you might screw over that universe if you steal something important, like the Infinity Stones, but you can also help them a great deal if you remove something dangerous, like, say a guy hell-bent on wiping out half the universe. So basically, their actions saved actually two universes (or the population worth one complete universe), because they undid the snap in their own timeline, and removed Thanos from the other. But I ...

I guess that is subverting expectations in the good way. The Russos admitted that some of what was in the trailers was fake, and you can noticed that in certain scenes like when every one comes to watch Captain Marvel brings Tony home Peper was edited out for the trailer.

    Isn't there some prophecy that will have Khal Drago returning to Danerys? "When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east," said Mirri Maz Duur, "When the seas go dry and the mountains blow in the wind like leaves. When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child. Then he will return, and not before." Maybe beating the Night King is what alters the world in such a manner that this curse is actually a prophecy. That might mean she and Jon won't stay together. And she did mention her first husband already this season. Though there are many possible interpretations, and they don't have to be even remotely as pleasant. ;) - "When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east" : This was long thought to be a reference to Quentyn Martell, but they haven't even shown him on the tv show. Trystane was on the show, but he traveled south to north, so the whole thing is problematic. I suppose they could argue that Trystane began his journey from the western part of Dorne, and then his s...
