    I will address these questions and experiments using inline blue text, not to be confused with Blue Truth. In some of the answers I have provided, I allowed for certain assumptions to be made. I want to clarify this further and say that, on the balance, I am not willing to make assumptions...

    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...

    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...

    With about six hours to go in the players' posting period, I'd like to note that since Derim's objection to the eastern passage is very clear and specific, unless I get more information to the contrary, the party's going to start by going down the northern route. In case you're tempted to bring...

    Rogur has exhausted his knowledge but if any other character wants to have a go at identifying the second glyph, it can be done with a DC 15 History Check, or DC 10 for Yrisz. Also, I see Noxias is for and Derim is against entering the eastern passageway. Please settle on the rest of the...

    The seal comes off and Rogur takes a sniff. The seal wasn't good enough, or the clay too porous. The vinegary tang of spoiled wine assails him, with decidedly unpleasant background scents of yeast and cooked cabbage.

    Rogur will need to bring a sample down or Noxias will have to climb up to offer any arcane insights. Meanwhile, Rogur makes a History Check and rolls 11 modified to 14. Knowledge Check (History DC 15 normally, DC 10 due to Rogur's background as an Imareskan merchant ship's officer) Just before...

    As the rest of you look around in the crevice, Rogur sets up his own grapple and rope on the north face, ascends to the other side of the room, and pokes about in the debris. It doesn't look like anything he finds was disturbed in many years, since whenever it was that they were dashed to pieces...

    Remember that only one Light cantrip can be active at any time. Also, there are no doors here in this room, just open passageways. If Noxias casts light on each one sequentially, it can be determined that the passages continue for a few feet in each direction without much of note before the angle...

About Me
Biography:
I like D&D. I dig 4e as a DM or player;
3.5 is a solid system, but I could never play a game that started out at a level lower than 4;
can't tell you why, but disliked 2e;
I like 1e, but have played it to death and am almost bored with it at this point. The only way I could play is with oriental adventures. I always wanted to try out a kensai, but never got the opportunity.

Gurps looks cool, but complicated.

Played palladium games (heroes unlimited and ninjas and superspies) but only a couple of sessions.

Made a character for shadowrun (but that's as far as the game went).

I wasn't a fan of rolemaster.

Really getting into HERO 6e.

Genre-wise, I like high-fantasy, but any fantasy setting is fine. Genre-mixing is fun. I.e. ninjas in a medieval setting does not upset me, it intrigues me.

I would like to go for a more in-depth super hero campaign though. Maybe something like the eXiles comic. Traveling through dimensions to prevent bad stuff from turning the world upside down.

I am an engineer, so game mechanics not only make sense to me (don't have to explain rules to me), but I also really like solid mechanics. Also, for someone who is unclear about rules systems, I am pretty good at conveying how they work.

I used to play all the time, but that was a long time ago. Thanks to this site, have hooked up with some online gamers. Things didn't turn out, but I will probably find another online game.

D&D next playtest feedback: rogue class/skill system

by yukonhorror on 05-30-2012 at 04:17 PM
so I forgot to really comment on my opinions regarding the skill system, so will do that in addition to assessing the rogue/halfling as a whole.

Again, I like the racial bonuses do damage dice on certain weapons. Especially for dagger, cause normally it is worthless as a weapon.

Regarding skills and background, I said I like them, but I really like the freeformness of skills. Using what makes sense as a check and have the player roll. The background (and class in this

D&D next playtest feedback: classes as a whole, fighter in specifics

by yukonhorror on 05-29-2012 at 11:22 AM
I am going to do my best and stay objective. It is nice to see the thingy from mike mearls regarding intention. I think it helps to provide constructive feedback. By knowing his motivations, I can properly assess his implementation.

Let's walk through the fighter (in the context of all the classes) section by section.

Regarding AC and HP, these are obviously relative. Without yet playing, I cannot assess if the target was hit, but one must keep in mind the balancing

5e playtest: 45 min glance 1st impressions (3.x hardliners have finally won the flame war)

by yukonhorror on 05-25-2012 at 01:54 AM
I'll put that into more context as I go on, but this is the first of my feedback/impressions/etc... regarding the playtest released by WOTC for 5th edition.

A bit of foreshadowing, at first glance, it seems as though the game has gone back to a more 3.x mentality/mechanic rather than progressing forward to something new and innovative. To me, that is why have a new edition, and why adopt one. Sooo... let's go back in history.

I grew up on 1st edition AD&D. loved
