    I'll provide a mid-period update to deal with some questions and speculation: A floating disk can be treated as Cover if a character crawls under it, assuming the trap works the way your characters believe it does. I am currently only rolling Insight and Perception checks for player...

    Agree on Str/Dex, but you could mitigate it by just making Skill checks (Dex+Str)/2 or something. I somewhat disagree on Int/Wis. While people usually are on a spectrum, extremes here are certainly there. Thank god for the high-intelligence-low-wisdom chicks; they are so easy to bed. And thank ...

    I've only read D&D 5 Basic, but really it's not far off from Red Box if you ignore some of the tedious prose. No feats in Basic; they're optional in the PHB, I hear. Skills are still there, but only Untrained (raw stat bonus only) or Trained (stat + level-based Proficiency Bonus). "Backgrounds"...

    I think a lot has to do with the group you have at the table. If you've properly screened your players from the start for a more r/p kind of campaign, it should work out fine. If participants play their characters well, the "spectators" should be entertained almost as much as the participants,...

    I totally agree with you Zus. The whole break up of Strength/Dex always seemed strange to me. Yes, you don't have to be super strong to be pretty dexterous. But as you reach the extremes, like what a 18 Dex would suggest (with no core strength) or even the fighting abilities that a 18 Str would...

    Wow, am. Hmmm. Other then pointing things out to the party, which has already happened, I don't know what else Yrisz can provide to bypassing this trap. Why don't we slide one of those sealed amphoras of something (a medium sized one I think) through those squares like a shuffle board puck (if...

    My intention is to make the player characters more robust with respect to their attack and defense bonuses against equivalent-level opponents. This will free up character feats for their original purpose of allowing unique customizations. It should also allow the party to defeat enemies more...

    See, while I applaud these sharings of people's ideas and conclusions, and I think gamers are all the better for them, at the very least, the people that post them, I think there is something even more interesting on display here. I agree with the essence of the words in the original post - the...

    Yeah. We want details! I shiver to think of diceless games though. The dice are magical little gems that hold the answers to everything within them. Why pass up such cool, little baubles? One reason to skip them is that most dice rely on numbers, which require mathematical thinking instead...

    My in-game post introduces Rogur's new feat, "Disciple of Shadow," which grants him Darkvision 2. It should make him a lot more useful on stealthy scouting, since he'll no longer have to carry a light. The relatively limited range makes it unlikely that he'll be able to give descriptions of large...

    Rogur scrambles down the rope and moves into the mouth of the eastern passageway, peering around as the others experiment with the oil. Noxias' spells make pools of oil gutter and flare, and shadows writhe on the wall. Rogur curses as he squints into the darkness, trying to keep watch. The contrast...

    Uses for the oil: - Insect murder (Nature/horticulture roll I guess): If we can mix the oil with water and disperse it somehow in the bug room, we can cover a large number of insects with relatively small amount of oil. The oil quickly interferes with their breathing by closing up breathing...

    It's a good thing it's not a history check but a Prestidigitation cantrip. Basically, Rogur lowers an amphora marked oil down. Noxias removes the crumbling seal and immediately detects extremely rancid-smelling seed oil. Pouring a little bit on the ground and setting the amphora a good few feet...

    I have MSDN so I can give you a copy of the latest version of Windows if you want. But it sounds like you're a Mac person. Nox will experiment a bit with the oil to see how flammable it is. Thanks!

    I have also asked these questions in the past. The only way I would find out is by trying to host such a game. This is what I have learned from it so far. 1. Only host to a group that is genuinely interested in pacifism otherwise it will not work. 2. Keep the roleplayers occupied with...

    Malruhn - good points. Some bad guys are all about death, but let's be real here: the only creatures that don't have an interest in self-preservation are undead, robots, and living things who are guarding something more valuable than life (like their kids). Don't let the thread name fool you, by...

    You can safely assume that I don't. Athletics is really a combination of strength-to-weight ratio, coordination, timing, spatial awareness and agility. Lack of any of those can be a reason for a miserable failure. Simplification to strength is strange. I am strong, but to get near athletic...

    Palp as for using dex for jumping in D&D, well that is a subject near to my heart as I play mostly finesse based characters in most versions of D&D. Though in 4e, the very un-dex based Cleric and Paladins have been my character of choose until they finally published the Assassin, which is again...

    "That mark is for oil," Yrisz says before Noxias can, as she holds up her torch to see better. "I'm rather sure Derim and you will be able to find something creative to do with that much oil," she says looking back towards the grave spearman. "If all that wine has spoiled then perhaps we...
