    D&D General Mithral v Silver

    I'd imagine the price. Mithral weapons are in there somewhere (maybe 3.0 and PF), compared to alchemical silver it was way more expensive.

    Ever see a Strengh 18/00 rolled legitimately?

    I want to say "sure have!" ... but the more I think about it, the more likely I didn't. I do remember someone getting a 90+ ... AND my first character in Pool of Radiance was a Fighter, with a natural 18/00 ... no modifying! ... my second character was an Elf Fighter/Mage that had some sort of...

    Trailer Eternals Movie

    Just got to see this. One of the best intro songs for any MCU movie! the sex scene? meh, didn't need to see it, but I think it gave Ikaris a bigger cross to bear for most of the movie. Thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Got to see Shang-Chi two weeks ago, too. Love both and think they are fun...

    D&D General Mithral v Silver

    Their only weapon property is half-wieght, and that they are MW quality, so they still get a +1 to hit. ... I'm totally ok with that. Thanks for the physics visual. Reminds me of Spider-Man annoying Cap during Civil War.

    D&D General Mithral v Silver

    so how does that apply to a blade that is say 50% lighter? ... A MW Two-handed Sword vs a Mithral/Mithril/etc Two-handed Sword. Not that I need a real justification other than "that's the way it works". Does it make up for that lack of heft with sharpness? Or do we hit the wall of fantasy...

    ooooooh, see that helps

    Totally missing the link there, but given my day so far ... par for the course.

    D&D 5E Magical Metals and Alloys: We Need More

    for s/g I wen thru and homebrewed up most of the materials from WoW. If you want more flexibility (or simply more choice) you could try the MW (3x/PF) rules from The Black Company CS.

    D&D General Mithral v Silver

    Pretty sure you are correct on that MW component of getting +1 (or -1 ACP) that doesn't stack with anything but is there.

    D&D General Mithral v Silver

    Why? no real answer. But, when 3x/PF came out I really liked the idea of going with the 'True Silver' title and letting it act like weaponized silver, too.

    Pathfinder 1E Pathfinder 1.5 rumblings: Corefinder

    And Skill points? ... I'm more of a lurker now, family and all, ... but one thing that got silly real fast was Super high skill points and DCs (RW already mentioned traps). (one way I thought of for HR was lvls 1-10 normal, 11-19 1/3, 20+ 1/4 ... but all that does is slow it down)

    D&D General Drow in early D&D

    iirc Drow were the shortest lived of the Elf races in 1e. ... yup: 1e DMG p13 ... Venerable age is 801-1000 years. Shortest of the 5 major types. later editions probably upped this for the nobles, if they managed to survive their society that long.

    D&D General Professional DMs making $45k/year off it?

    Holy Cow ... I remember this discussion back when Eric Noah and Pirate Kat (as a mod) (Kevin -- last name eludes me) ran things. I'm not sure where everyone stood on the matter, but it seemed almost a negative thing (that's like almost decades ago ... my memory is sketchy at times). Given...

    D&D General Drow in early D&D

    Always wanted know there the Valley Elf King and Court went off to ... And why did the others just stay put.

    D&D General Drow in early D&D

    BAH "server error" and double post ... Drow as PC from 1e UA ... awesome. I'm sure I'm not alone here in thinking RA Salvatore stole "my" drow ranger idea, although I had two longswords. Overpowered was simply a byword for the DM to smack you around harder ... and indeed he did. 4...

    D&D General Drow in early D&D

    probably late, but the peoples of Gondor and Rohan referred to them as halflings.

    D&D General Drow in early D&D

    Back in the day ... there were High Elves, Grey Elves (haughtier), Wood Elves (the rustic ones), Aquatic Elves, and Dark Elves (the evil ones). I think there's a correlation between the types of Elves from Middle Earth (but I butcher the names all the time). Grey Elves where the like the...

    D&D General Drow in early D&D

    Their "weak fighter" status kinda fell with the 1e UA ...maybe when compared to Humans, but they blew other elves out of the water until other elves' strength increased significantly.

    What Do Elves Eat, Anyway?

    One of my early 3e game's player had a great quote (can't remember the adventure ... updated Keep on the Borderlands?) ... anyway they came across a barrel that was labeled "Elf Pudding", the Half-Orc Barbarian said "Is it made from real Elves?" I always assumed Elves were fairly omnivorous ...
