    Thoughts on the rebooted He-Man (Netflix)

    I felt like the series did a good job of laying out (without actually stating) why Adam would do it - basically he sees himself as Adam rather than He-Man, and wanted Teela to love and respect him as Adam, not just because he was He-Man. It's basically the Clark Kent / Superman / Lois dynamic...

    Marvel TV Schedule: what are you excited about?

    I'm starting to feel like I'm the only person in the world who actually enjoys Jeremy Renner's performance as Hawkeye, and is looking forward to seeing more of him in a TV series.

    Thoughts on the rebooted He-Man (Netflix)

    Well, it's a Masters of the Universe series. He-Man doesn't make the title in this one.

    New Ghostbusters Afterlife trailer

    Okay, that's definitely looking promising. Feels like it's leaning a little heavily into the Stranger Things vibe of separate, parallel plot threads for the teen and adult casts, but probably too early to call that for certain.

    Rules FAQ How Does Stealth Work in D&D 5E?

    That seems like a reasonable houserule. Maybe just give invisible creatures the rogue's "hide as a bonus action" ability.

    Marvel TV Schedule: what are you excited about?

    Not so much "leaked" as "in every single trailer", as I recall.

    Marvel TV Schedule: what are you excited about?

    Hawkeye, Ms Marvel, She-Hulk.

    Loki! (spoiler thread)

    They should have Terrence Howard show up as a TVA agent in season 2 with no explanation.

    D&D 5E WotC Is Designing Adventures With Shorter Content Chunks

    I'm currently running one two-hour session each Tuesday night for two hours, online. I was also in a similar game on Fridays, but recently I've more often than not been so exhausted at the end of a week that I would just bow out of that one, so I've called it quits on that game.

    Loki! (spoiler thread)

    Iron Man 2 Rhodie is a variant.

    What’s the fastest spaceship?

    The TARDIS is capable of impressive speeds even when not travelling via the spacetime vortex. It's capable of traversing thousands of lightyears within a few minutes, while towing a planet.

    Rules FAQ How Does Stealth Work in D&D 5E?

    I think the intention is that it doesn't just rely upon sight, but it does mean that if you can eliminate other factors - for instance if you're battling in a storm or next to a waterfall, making sound-based detection impossible - then technically that clause would kick in, and any attempt to...

    Black Widow

    Even if Ultron hadn't gone rogue, he would still have been a serious violation. I doubt Tony would have sought permission from world governments to implement him - he'd have been an omnipresent security guard enforcing order across the globe, ready to step in with massive force if anyone from an...

    Rules FAQ How Does Stealth Work in D&D 5E?

    Do you define detecting a hidden creature as relying upon sight? You might also be able to hear them, or smell them if you have Keen Scent or they haven't bathed in awhile.

    OOTS 1241: Sunnyside Down

    I feel like it could've used a Darth Vader / Boba Fett reference.

    Black Widow

    And also, who puts a prison right at the base of three separate mountain faces that are all prone to avalanches? That was an accident waiting to happen.

    Black Widow

    That wasn't Stark taking responsibility. That was him wanting to hand off responsibility to a faceless organisation. And yeah, I've commented vocally to that effect on previous threads in this forum

    Rules FAQ How Does Stealth Work in D&D 5E?

    True enough - in many cases, multiple abilities will be in play when making a single check. In this case you need intelligence to analyse the situation and come up with a good approach, wisdom to monitor whether or not anything's going wrong with your approach, and charisma to pull off the...

    Rules FAQ How Does Stealth Work in D&D 5E?

    That makes sense, though I think charisma would still play a part in being able to implement that knowledge in practice without it looking forced or artificial. I like the concept of linking skills to different abilities depending upon circumstances, so I'd probably go with a Charisma (Stealth)...

    Rules FAQ How Does Stealth Work in D&D 5E?

    The stealth rules work okay for combat, but it'd be nice to have at least a nod to formal "social stealth" rules whereby people 'hide' by not drawing attention to themselves. As it stands, only a halfling can hide by blending into a crowd.
