    3E/3.5 Question - Demoralize Opponent

    A player asked me this today, and I'm not sure how to answer it. I told him that I'd think about it and get back to him. Let's say that two PCs are fighting one foe. PC Alfred is successful using the Intimidate skill to Demoralize Opponent. This makes the target shaken. Does PC Benford...

    3E/3.5 Charge!

    I'm not sure what that has to do with the question in the OP, Greenfield. So...the Pirate player rolls spot and listen checks. They are successful. They know someone is behind the rocks to the right. Then, the Barbarian steps out onto the path, 60 foot in front of the Pirate. The Pirate...

    3E/3.5 Charge!

    Agreed! Which is why I posted the thread--to see how others would sell it to their players. The mechanics are the same whether the Pirate is aware of the Barbarian or not. The Barbarian pops out of hiding, 60 feet away. The Pirate stops in his tracks and says, "Ho, there, traveler. What be...

    3E/3.5 Charge!

    And...during that "matter of seconds" the Pirate is doing nothing. If the Barbarian can move 60 feet during that time, the Pirate can do....? Can't pull your weapon, either. Pulling your sword is a Move Action if 1st level, Free Action combined with a Move Action at 2nd level and above, for...

    3E/3.5 Charge!

    Let's say the round plays out to where the Barbarian charges the Pirate and kills the Pirate with that one blow. You're saying that while the Barbarian is running that 60 feet the Pirate is simultaneously dying from a blow he doesn't receive until the end of the round? So, you're saying that...

    3E/3.5 Charge!

    I actually like the 2011 Conan film. I was disappointed with it at first, mainly because I was hoping for the Conan movie to end all Conan movies--a masterpiece, or at least something as good as the Lord of the Rings movies. What I got was a summer popcorn action film. It was good. I liked...

    3E/3.5 Charge!

    But, let's say that there is no Surprise. And, let's say the Barbarian is 60 feet away. Say that they exchanged words. We're not yet in combat. Then, the Barbarian gets tired of the jabbering and charges the guy. Initiative is rolled. Barbarian wins. Barbarian runs 60 feet to swipe at the...

    3E/3.5 Charge!

    It's.....not a great film. But, hey, it's Conan. And, I own it. :whistle:

    3E/3.5 Charge!

    Which is fine for round 2+. The first combat round, though, it's hard to accept simultaneous action when one party of that action isn't doing anything. The Pirate is walking down the path. 50 feet in front of him, the Barbarian steps out from behind a rock, standing in the path. He is not...

    3E/3.5 Charge!

    Guess I'll answer my own post. Nobody plays 3.5E anymore? I'm about to hit the sack, and I put on Conan The Destroyer. Early in the film, Conan & Co. is being follow by Grace Jones' character, Zula. They're all on horses. Bombaata, played by Wilt Chamberlain, doubles back to turn her away...

    3E/3.5 Charge!

    I am setting up a Conan game for my players. This is a brand new game, and there will be some players new to Conan. I'm using the Conan RPG by Mongoose, which is based on d20 3.5. I'm looking for opinions on how you would describe the situation to a new player who isn't used to the rules...

    General GM's Closet for the CONAN RPG

    SKILL: INTIMIDATE USE: DEMORALIZE OTHER I've tried to use this in the game several ways. I've spoken about this several times before. Here is how I've come to use it, and I think this is the best way to use Demoralize Other in your games. First, make a simple change. The...
