    Stat Balance

    I was recently noticing in game the stat imbalance between those who can be focused on Dex and Con, and those who cannot, and it's led to me pondering minor rule changes. Or at least discussing them, cause that's the fun part, and maybe something will get into a game some day, or not. Problem...

    Rare Items

    Many of the recently published rare items are relatively disappointing, so figured I'd take a quick stab at how I'd change most of them to be where I'd actually want rares to be... also fixing what I perceive as a few problems, cause I meddle like that. Staff of the Magi is good, and a...

    Group Healing Surges

    The new Ravenloft board game has a very interesting feature - healing surges are a group resource, rather than an individual resource. The entire group has two surges (and some other tricks for healing without surges for low amounts of damage). So, given that example, how much would the...

    Hybrid Exercise Ideas

    One of the groups I'm in is about to start a new campaign, that'll start around 10th and end around 22nd (give or take a level or so on both sides). When discussing characters for it, someone decided we should all be hybrids. Someone else upped the ante to hybrids of differing roles, and if...

    Interrupt Timing: Unified in Blood

    How would you rule the following? A warlord and avenger are fighting a dragon. The dragon breathes on the two, in a close blast 5, dealing 30 damage to each. The damage from the breath weapon bloodies the avenger, so the warlord triggers his Immediate Interrupt Unified in Blood: Unified in...

    What are your problems with Healing/Dying mechanics in 4E

    I wanted to brainstorm a bit about houserules for 4e involving healing (and dying, which seems sorta related). Accordingly, I'm looking to see what problems people run into, to see which could be addressed at all. I understand that this topic could induce rancor, but please keep it civil and...

    Brutal

    I really don't like the brutal (or gauntlets of devastation) mechanic of rerolling damage dice. It slows down play and interacts in poor ways with mechanics that change dice types (such as when you can get 1d12 brutal 2 to turn into 2d6 brutal 2) or compare balance of brutal 1 from a feat/item...

    Multiple vulnerabilities

    A target has vulnerable 10 radiant and vulnerable 5 all, and is hit by a radiant sunstrike for 7 radiant. How much damage does it take, 17 or 22? Rules or FAQ or CS citation? Potentially more complex. A creature has vulnerable 5 thunder and vulnerable 5 lightning and vulnerable 5 cold and is...

    Probability Math for Resistance (help!)

    Okay, I'm working on an excel spreadsheet for monster damages and I want to be able to have it figure out the average damage for various levels of resistance... and I have no idea how to do that. I do know that, for instance, 2d6 (avg 7) - 7 is _not_ average 0 though ;) 3d6-4 is 10.5 + 1/216...

    Berbalang?

    Anyone used one of these solos? How did the fight go? It... looks a little messed up, and I'm trying to visualize how effective it could actually be. It can have up to 4 duplicates, though it technically only has the ability to make 3 (makes first its hp go down to 306, 2nd to 230, 3rd to 172...

    Sanity Checking some Monster Damages

    Hopefully folks can help me out a little bit. I've been taking a serious look at the Monster Manual monsters to try and figure out which monsters are... problematic. I've created a spreadsheet and put in expected damage for a monster over a fight and judged it against an ideal couple of surges...

    Surge and Healing

    Reduce the number of healing surges of all characters by 4*. When a character takes a short rest, they are restored to full hp at no surge cost. There are a few abilities you'd need to change as a result - most particularly the bard song of rest ability. Feats which affect amount you heal while...
