    How to Edit Signature?

    Haven't been active here in a couple years or so. The site's undergone some big changes. Looking to get rid of the old signature, but when I go to my profile, there's no little pencil icon next to it. Are signatures a subscription feature now? I'd just as soon blank it out.

    5E Sleep Spell 1st-Level, No-Save Death Spell?

    I took a long break from RP'ing. Been a couple years at least. I'm very interested in this new editionless edition. Looking through the PHB, I'm very impressed overall. I like the classes, I like the approach to making components like feats and alignment optional, and I like the idea of spells...

    Arrow TV Show

    Farther back than that, actually. It was one of comics' first clumsy attempts at "relevant" storytelling. If there's some way to post the image directly rather than just a link to it, I haven't figured it out yet.

    Mass Effect 3 (no spoilers)

    No thread on this, huh? It's a great game that serves up a lovely swan song for many heroes. I enjoy both the story and the combat. Haven't finished it yet, so it's been hard to dodge spoilers. Apparently, the ending is of a controversial nature. I hope I don't find out that you only get a...

    Lords of Waterdeep Boardgame - Merric's Review

    Nice, meaty review. One of the love/hate things about Euro games is that their design mitigates the capability of other gamers to attack other players (which inevitably leads up to ganging up on someone). Using intrigue cards to "slow up the leader", for instance, concerns me, because I know...

    4E My Least Favourite Thing About 4e is Forced Balance

    Can't the yetis just use their teeth and for regular damage? Don't the fire elementals have access to weapons, or just slam attacks? :) The big problem in 4e is that casters have a very small, prescribed "deck" of spells. You can't just memorize non-fire spells even if you know you'll be...

    Traps: What Should Become of the Spike-Filled Pit?

    There are some sticky issues with traps that have made their usage fairly awkward and often moot in both 3e and 4e. Some folks think they're downright passé. I'd like to go over the major issues and see if any kind of meaningful discussion is sparked. 1) One-Hit Cheap-Shot Nature: While there...

    4E My Least Favourite Thing About 4e is Forced Balance

    3e skeletons were immune to sneak attack damage. Pathfinder and 4e skeletons are not. in 4e, you always get sneak attack damage. Again, it's not hard to interpret why a sneak attack is more damaging. Pretty much anything has a week point (GalaxyQuest rock monsters notwithstanding). The topic...

    4E My Least Favourite Thing About 4e is Forced Balance

    Seems like your default outlook is negative and narrow. Skeletons have no vital spots? The human skeleton is full of weak points. It is not a seamless, flawless construct by any means. It has oints that can shattered, vertebrae that can be severed. Cut the spine below the ribcage, and what...

    Rituals: What Should Become of Them?

    4e introuduced the concept of rituals, and I personally found it to be one the finest concepts the edition had to offer. It's one of those things that seem obvious in hindsight, that a leomund's tin hut is not the same type of resource as a fireball, and thus they shouldn't be drawn from the...

    Saving Throws: What Should Become of Them?

    One of the 4e mechanics that never grew on me was how they handled saving throws as a way of ending conditions. They basically just made it a flat-up coin toss, causing many "big gun" attacks from both players and monsters fizzle out after a single round's duration. I liked 3e's division...

    Has anyone ever bought a PDF from Indie Press Revolution?

    I purchased the Bulldogs Fate RPG from IPR. I concluded the purchase using PayPal. I figured I would get an email with a link to a secure download, but instead I got an email that contains...well, nothing much really. See for yourself: Something defiinitely seems to be missing. There's some...

    Optimization Advice Sought for a Knife-Fighter

    I've been considering a halfling knife-fighter for my next character--a deadly a little fellow, no more to be trifled with than any falchion-wielding barbarian. Rogue/ranger with a favored enemy of human would be my preference. However, in 3e I recall this not amounting to a particularly deadly...

    What's more important for a Magus, STR or INT?

    The title says it all. The character in question is a 3rd-level human built on 25 points. I'm leaning towards STR as being more important, because I will probably be rolling to hit more often than anything I'll be doing that uses INT, such as tapping my arcane pool or casting spells with save...

    Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited on Android?

    One of the things that would make a tablet an appealing purchase would be the capability to access Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited anywhere. It won't work on Applie iOS because Apple won't incorporate Flash. I'm wondering if it performs on an Android device, as they do include Flash. Has anyone...
