    Anyone Currently Playing Fantasycraft?

    So I was getting burned out running 3/3.5e after many years and took a bit of a break. Ran a Serenity campaign (Cortex rules base) fell back into only playing (for like the first time in...err...ever?) and recently ran a Pathfinder one-shot game for a DM that was heading to Gen-Con (won't start...

    Abilities as the Core - uh yeah...

    Well, now that someone at Wizards is tossing this idea around, Maybe I'll actually get some traction / input on the following: www.eyrurpg.com None of this is play tested by the way and mostly free thinking. I'd expect some serious issues along the way if I ever play test it. But its the...

    New DM, I choose you! DM Trainer Edition

    Forgive the juvenile title :) Also, I'm new here and haven't been hashing out these issues like you guys on the forums with thousands of posts, so forgive me if this is ancient history. So we were discussing skill challenges in a separate thread. I remarked how it seemed to me that the 4e...

    3E/3.5 Eliminating Class and Cross-Class Skills (3.5)

    I don't think you are floating into unchartered waters. I think you will be fine. The only thing you will see is a slight blurring of lines between classes in the skill category. The only one who may be adversely affected is the party rogue/skill monkey. Rogues are already easy to replace with...

    3E/3.5 Yet Another 3.5 Hybrid

    Ok, so everyone is maybe sick of these, but I've had a pet project I have been working on for several months which is my own update to the 3.5 rules. I didn't care much for 4e or Pathfinder (I won't go into that here). Both seem to be decent games - just not what I was looking for. However I was...

    3E/3.5 Need advice on 3.5 cleric build

    Unless there is a rogue already in the party. If so, there's no reason to not let him do his/her job just pickup more spellcasting levels. Besides, losing spellcaster levels and burning spell slots on Find Traps (until you of course make an item) seems like a waste just to thumb your nose at the...

    3E/3.5 D&D 3.5 ruleset, splitting Dexterity

    Well, as a side note, I'm currently coming with my own extensive rules "re-write" and I reclassified several different attributes. I felt Wisdom was the stat that seemed odd (the ability to be introspective yet also covers being attuned to fine details of the outside world) and also felt...

    3E/3.5 How to play a 3.5 group without a healer?

    Don't get hit? Well, get hit -less-. Relying on a rogue to UMD is tricky (make sure the rogue has a good Wisdom, which is not often the case). But I definitely second the Cure Light Wand for any ranger/bard/paladin in the group. I'm currently playing in a game with a Bard, a Wizard, a Monk and...

    3E/3.5 (3.5) People complain too much

    I believe in 3.5 there is a rule for that... It's an opposed Craft: Prodigious Complaint check or Profession: Whiner. I'm pretty sure there may even be a synergy with the Bluff skill (cause, what doesn't have synergy with Bluff...) If all that fails, people who don't like the complaining can...

    3E/3.5 [3.5] Unfair fight?

    It sounds like there is more to the story perhaps as well which would explain the unbalanced encounter. At any rate, you knew the challenge was at least a bit outside the norm (with the ability you knew the opponent wasn't high enough to have) but you decided casting a first level spell (Charm...

    3E/3.5 What do you ban? (3.5)

    Of course, even having the books on hand is no garauntee. I have sat across from a player and had them read the entry for a spell / power / feat and gloss important aspects or "misread" key bits. I've had players do this with core rules as well. I will then say "oh , really, that sounds amazing...

    3E/3.5 What do you ban? (3.5)

    Hopefully we don't descend into people picking apart someone's "banned" list again. I for one appreciate someone being able to actually post what's banned in their game and won't begrudge anyone for banning X or allowing Y. I may get snarky about psionics for instance, but I don't think there's...

    2E 2e Ranger/Mage?

    I for one like it. Sort of a throw back to the AD&D Ranger class that had a mix of Druid and Magic-User spells. I think it makes perfect sense for an elf...and what is this with studying in a building?? An elf mage will much prefer study out in the elements - the very elements they seek to have...

    3E/3.5 3.5 Psionics.

    I don't know...ask a bard to scribe a scroll of Cure Light and explain to the Wizard or the Cleric which one can use it and why...:] Just being facetuous btw. But are you saying this as opposed to Psionics? Divine/Arcane is just a descriptor applied to the same system. Divine and Arcane...

    3E/3.5 3.5 Psionics.

    Are you referring to the unoptimized, single class Powergamer? I have had the pleasure of playing with a number of multi-class Powergamer / Roleplayers, Roleplayer / Powergamers. The only ones who are in trouble are the true single classed Roleplayers or the single classed Powergamers. One...

    3E/3.5 3.5 Psionics.

    Why must you be a powergamer to tell if they are balanced? ;) I'll definitely take your word on it due to lack of time with Psionics. Though if it is the case that psionics is more balanced, it would have been nice had they applied these same "balanced" rules to the concepting for the...

    3E/3.5 3.5 Psionics.

    IMO, etc., etc. from the slightly negative sid eof the fence. I guess I'm a traditionalist when it comes to fantasy and I never really got into psionics. It was kind of a neat twist back in AD&D when psionic powers were just something a character had a slim percentage chance to have based on I...

    3E/3.5 Do you get the impression more people have left 3.5 for 4th?

    I haven't played Pathfinder but I have read through the core PDF. It does look like 3.5. I've heard people say it's mainly an extensive collection of house rules to which I very nearly agree, but again I have limited table time with it. I don't see myself playing it though because it is so...

    3E/3.5 [3.5] alternates to Freedom of Movement?

    Sounds like Big Bob should be applying a Pin and using the option of not allowing the opponent to speak (which could be illustrated by choking the life out of Wizo). Then Bob can let the party rogue gut Wizo while he's held immobile. This comapred to Bob just struggling with Wizo every round in...

    3E/3.5 Do you get the impression more people have left 3.5 for 4th?

    I always look at the "Viewing" statistic when I check out the boards. Right now the legacy and Pathfinder threads have about 280 viewing. The two 4e threads have about 220 viewing. It's always fairly even, so at least the demographic here seems to say that there's a slim gap between the two...
