Do we want to base ability scores on an Array:
Something like Scores of 15, 14, 13, 12, 12, and 18 arranged as desired?

Max gold for gear and crafting since we are coming from same place?
...



for lack of any other information i can find i am using the above information found in the gm request thread to build my lvl 1 character

I got the impression from our communication, that he is new-ish to the GM role so lets keep that in mind, but if we keep our selves balanced I think we as a group could contain a bit of specialty as long as it is completely explainable in 3 sentence or less.

Re: OOC:
Doesn't sound crazy to me.

But then as a gm I place all the books in the middle of the table. And say, you have this much rope...don't hang yourself...as I watch players have a fit when I use the same resources, feeling it is unfairly biased in my favor.

For example ... apparently one lvl 12 non gestalt wizard (my character) is too powerful for 9 lvl 15 gestalt half of which have access to lvl 9 spells...oh and I am not even the GM in that game.

Re: OOC:
yes gm can change the rating

no the gm has not checked in since the 25th

adult rated games are not something that is necessarily X rated, but largely that is what it is used for.

mature is sufficient for any run of the mill DND game, as long as players are not going into detailed paragraph long description of gore violence and what not.

i use adult ratted for games I run because my games border on Cthulhu, saw movie, and have a Tarantino dark and brutal reality. which is why i did not volunteer to run the game. I am quite dark and twisted. that did not seem to fit with the little folk feel that was requested for in the advertisement.

Re: OOC:
Sorry, ended up having a busy weekend and Monday at work so couldn't spend time online.

I changed the game rating to mature as I think that will be better. started at adult as a safe level for anything that might come up but I don't expect this game to be too graphic other than occasional descriptions of violence.

I will post this in the looking for players section and give it a couple of days to attract players. Hopefully we can get the people from the 'looking for GM' thread and a few others to round out the party.

oh sorry forgot to put that in private text....nothing to see here....these are no the droids you are looking for...





but seriously i need an answer to a question.

the sling and more specifically the halfling warsling (page 155 races of faerun)

rules as written state that str is applied to damage like with "thrown weapons"...but when it comes to the range...is it a thrown weapon with a max of 5 range increments (making the max range 250 ft, decent range) or is it classified in with the bows as a projectile weapon concerning range, using 10 range increments (making the range 500 ft, not unbelievable)

I have 4 methods for generating the initial ability scores, vote for what you prefer. First to three wins otherwise we will have a runoff for the two most popular choices.

1) 4d6 for each, drop the lowest roll (or highest if you are a masochist)

2)22d6, drop lowest 4, arrange remaining 18 into groups of three. Should allow an 18 or a couple of very high stats plus a few low ones, or a character well balanced across all six. Nice system because it allows you to arrange the dice any way you like.

3) 18, 15, 13, 12, 10, 8

4) 17, 16, 15, 11, 10, 9

The second method is one I invented back in the 2ed days. Never seen anyone else use it. Although you lose 2 dice compared to the 4d6 method, you gain by being able to mix the dice pool into combinations you prefer. If you have never done it why not give it a couple of spins and see what kind of scores you get?

I would assume that to gain the strength bonus you would have to use the lower range. BUt if someone can find an official rule on it I will accept it.

My Cleric is a gnome Cleric of brandobaris, gnome god of thieves and illusions. His focus will be the magic/illusion side, and eventually be a Cleric/illusionist, so won't be your typical stand up front with a mace and shield Cleric. He is more a spellcaster Cleric, using magic to help others and when he gets wizard spells, illusion spells

The opportunity to get higher scores would be worth my time to use the 2nd stat generation method.

Also I am a ranged fighter but by ranged I do mean "out of melee range"

Also to you crafting inclined characters...keep in mind that the sling I chose as my main weapon is designed to throw larger then average items like potions...so potions at Max of 500 ft instead of just 50. It has a numerous tactical benifits.

I had initially applied as a Fighter going for the Warslinger PRC, but it seems that Clover has that base covered pretty well!

I'll shift to what my second idea was of eventually aiming for the Halfling Outrider PrC, so starting as either a ranger or a druid. I'll have to see stats and pre-req's for the PrC.

I saw somewhere that DM Neogi is newer to DM'ing? So should we avoid things like Complete Adventurer feats (Devoted Tracker)?

Is there a list of approved sources @GM Neogi or is it pretty wide open?

EDIT: oof both of my 11d6 rolls weren't even average. Is there a threshold to re-roll?

  I find https://anydice.com/ useful for comparing rolling methods: Try entering output [highest 18 of 22d6]/6 (the /6 is to give average stat) vs output [highest 3 of 4d6].

someone else wanting to be a ranged fighter...

There is a "caster" class I have really wanted play.

If the group is amenable. I would like to propose to the group that I switch to the "horribly unplayable and underpowered" truenamer.

The gm is flexible with this so I think 3rd would be good, but what do others think?

Just that at level 1 arcane casters are limited with spells per day and cam use them up in 2-3 rounds. With multiple enemies then they may face someone uninjured and have no spells.

At 3rd they have a little leeway.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
So let's make it 3rd level to start.

My 22d6 remove 4 seems to be popular so we can use that if you want. If the total is below 70 then reroll. remember that the 18 dice that are kept have to be sorted into rolled groups of three, not pool all the points then split them as you like.

Max HP to start and max coin. All standard equipment can be taken for free considering you are at 3rd to begin. There will be some magic items handed out once you've finished all character creation and I can see what classes you are.

Once your character is completed please post in the Character Introductions thread.

I'll also post a few house rules in a new thread.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
question for the GM. but i would like the oppinion of my fellow players.

context: contradictions within the same resource.

both instances exist in text, so there is no clear precedent for text overriding a chart.

both mentions are the foundation of the truenamer class "the law of sequence" and the definition of an "utterance"

for reference here are some quotes. I will quote them in the order they appear in the book, I will highlight my need for a ruling on the rules

quote:
The language of truenames is more than just a list of names. Most of the language consists of the truename equivalent of nouns. In terms of game effect, there’s a truename for “orc,” for “door,” and for “sword.” But from the truenamer’s point of view, it’s much more complex. There’s a word for “orc berserker charging toward me,” a word for “iron-bound, locked wooden door with something unknown on the other side,” and a word for “flame tongue long-sword wielded by an ally.”
...
Truenames can also name actions, such as “vanish,” “sharpen,” or “destroy.”


this seems to set up the idea that there is a very large or near infinite combination of words

download:
A description of a creature (“halfling”), place (“forest”), thing (“dagger”), or action (“destroy”), delivered in the primal language of the universe. Each truename is exceedingly specific and incredibly difficult to pronounce aloud.


this seems to continue the idea that there is a very large or near infinite combination of words

Utterance::
A combination of a truename that describes an action with a truename that describes the subject of that action. This is the most important class feature of the truenamer class.


this seems to indicate that each utterance is unique as long as the same ally is not targeted with the same effect building on the expansive possibilities

UTTERANCES:
An utterance is a combination of words in Truespeech that describe a creature, place, or object to be affected and the desired effect (such as “control speed” or “wreathe in fire”). By putting these truenames together in exacting fashion, you create a rudimentary sentence in the true language of the universe—an utterance.


this seems to "double down" on the idea that each utterance is unique.

bob can jump extra high, because effect #1
bill can jump extra high, because effect #1
goblin can not jump at all, because reverse effect #1

THE LAW OF SEQUENCE:
All utterances obey the Law of Sequence. If you speak an utterance with an ongoing duration, you can’t speak that utterance again until the duration of that utterance ends. It’s okay to use a different utterance while the first is still active, however. It’s also okay to use a higher-level version of an utterance while a lower-level version is active, or vice versa, because these constitute different utterances. The reverse of an utterance is treated as the same utterance for the purpose of the Law of Sequence.

For example, you could speak a 2nd-level lesser word of nurturing utterance on one ally, then target another ally with a 1st-level minor word of nurturing utterance. But you could not use the 2nd-level lesser word of nurturing utterance on an ally, and while it was still in effect, target an ally with the same utterance or an enemy with the reverse of that utterance.


this seems to "undo" all the indications of uniqueness in the utterances

so here is the question

using the lexicon of the evolving mind "speed of the zepher" to boost Beagan's speed by 20 per pound for 5 rounds....the same as the reversed effect on a goblin to reduce its speed by 10...are they the same



edit: answered my own question by taking a literal translation based on the last official printed reference from WOTC

wiki's are notoriously misleading but yes maxing out the skill is needed. He will end up spending more gp on a single item to boost that one skill then another character will invest in all thier gear combigned. it is a very asymetric class and my above questions is quibling over a dc increase of +2 but every bit i can lower the dc is gp my character will not vacume up. but on the plus side the feats i am taking will allow me to use all the un-needed gear magic or other wise...wand of a spell no one will ever cast... nom nom...armor that wont fit any one...non nom...and i will (coin on hand depending) give 100% of market value for unwanted gear.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
oh there is nothing wrong with the 3.5 version. I just want to get he weird questions out of the way. the answers to my questions wont change what i play or the equipment i use to do it.

all that will change is if i pay super close to the duration of my effects, and if/when i dismiss effects. which in and of it's self is no problem. I just want to get my proverbial duck in the right order.

but the answers i need will come from the gm, it is his world, i am just rying to understand the laws that govern it.

I need some help to find Wizard and Conjurer specific alternative features.

The Teleport Jaunt or whatever its called replacing class feature I believe the familiar but I could be wrong.

And I recall I can drop another school ,add a prohibited school, to three to add a specialization school bonus spell. Might be wrong on this.

Immediate Magic ACFs is what you’re looking for.

Abrupt Jaunt - yes you lose your familiar
Focused Specialization (not on the crystal keep pdf) - you lose one generalist slot but gain two slots for your focused school. You also have to take a 3rd banned school

I see the discussion on character traits, what about flaws to earn feats.

if so can flaws be taken at level 3 instead of lvl 1


answered my own question taking flaws at lvl 1 and using the "retraining" mechanic found in PHB2.

digging a proverbial hole without a ladder and taking enough proverbial rope climb out of my "awesome" hole

choices have conciquences and boy have i made some choices to make the truenamer class into a playable character.

Map looks good...
I like the utility of one map for town and some surrounding areas

I assume the town might occupy 10 acres whereas each woods area might be 100 or a 1000+ times larger.

I also assume numerous river tributaries (and lakes) in the Dells and rivers flowing into the woods and through or near the town towards the left of the map....

Re: ABILITY SCORES
DM Neogi:
The second method is one I invented back in the 2ed days. Never seen anyone else use it. Although you lose 2 dice compared to the 4d6 method, you gain by being able to mix the dice pool into combinations you prefer. If you have never done it why not give it a couple of spins and see what kind of scores you get?

----------------------------------
quote:
rules as written state that str is applied to damage like with "thrown weapons"...but when it comes to the range...is it a thrown weapon with a max of 5 range increments (making the max range 250 ft, decent range) or is it classified in with the bows as a projectile weapon concerning range, using 10 range increments (making the range 500 ft, not unbelievable)


I would assume that to gain the strength bonus you would have to use the lower range. BUt if someone can find an official rule on it I will accept it.


Slings use the 10 range increment max and strength bonus applies up to maximum range.

Projectile Weapons

Light crossbows, slings, heavy crossbows, shortbows, composite shortbows, longbows, composite longbows, hand crossbows, and repeating crossbows are projectile weapons. Most projectile weapons require two hands to use (see specific weapon descriptions). A character gets no Strength bonus on damage rolls with a projectile weapon unless it’s a specially built composite shortbow, specially built composite longbow, or sling. If the character has a penalty for low Strength, apply it to damage rolls when he or she uses a bow or a sling

According to SRD armor and weapon weight is half

Weight

This column gives the weight of a Medium version of the weapon. Halve this number for Small weapons and double it for Large weapons.

Weight

This column gives the weight of the armor sized for a Medium wearer. Armor fitted for Small characters weighs half as much, and armor for Large characters weighs twice as much.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
So I think that we are just about ready to start. There are a few last bits of character creation and what-not that need to be completed but we can start things going and fill in the missing parts as we go along.

I added a second map showing the lands of Damara. The valley where we are starting in in the south between Valls and the Monastery of the Yellow Rose (spelt wrong on the map or was that intentional by Greenwood or whomever back in the day?), closer to Valls. Nice and close to the monastery for all you monk PCs.

I assume that this will be more of a sandbox game so you all can get up to what you want but I do have a short introductory adventure to get things rolling.

easier yes, but I was making sure, because like you said it could change the back story of some characters. Not that i am afraid of making those changes, I just don't want to be the reason the game stalls.

It would be wise only to use that feather fall ring in an emergency. I mean if you tried to use it instead of the rope and there was a dispel magic cast on the area then we'd be looking at a small, halfling sized, splatter all over the floor. Theo and his spider walk was also playing with fire.

As a magic user, AMF and dispel magic are something he always worries about. And sadly the only real defense against that is having a higher caster level then the effect trying to end yours which gets multiplicative expensive. But worth the investment for certain things.

hey guys, im actually cracking into it. i have a general core idea. but id rather not get terribly outshined or overshadowed (I Do like to play with my builds so i expect to be at least somewhat sub par, but id rather not be outstandingly underpowered in comparison... you know?)

so what are some unique or special additives being used for chars? Clover looks like he has some kind of exchange thing, a flaw for a benefit, it seems familiar but not catching where. though, maybe hes just describing a min max thing.

not sure, thats why im asking.

Flaws

Feable
reduce one ability by two (chose strength)

Pathetic
Take a -2 penalty on all str/Dex/con ability checks and skill checks.

Each of those penalties grants a feat at lvl 1

My character is very good at what he is good at, but like a rubber band at over extending creates a miriad of points of failure.

But to put the Truenamer class perspective

Imagine a fighter who's Bab goes up by +1 every level while the enemy has a ac that goes up by +2 per level and a +2 for every round you are fighting them.

To say that the character is doomed to fail is an understatement, but the point is to make a good story. And while he has has a two feat head start, by even mid level progression the character lacks the ability to keep up. So a lot of character wealth is directed towards a single item that boosts the skill I use to "cast" all my spell like abilities

Re: ABILITY SCORES
i read some of the back logs for ooc and I kind of get why you are fretting. Clover.

people who cant handle that they are underpowered only have themselves to blame when they dont use 'session 0' effectively. yes, you guys already started and i am doing a late 0 but none the less here i am communicating.

I see you guys are trying not to be too op for the sake of the gm, seeing as they are relatively new. alright, cool. so i will then trust you guys in opinion here.

gm said its ok for me to do a sword of the arcane order mystic ranger char. I gets level 5 spells, wizard and ranger spells. I dont recall if theres a way to fluff that up to higher levels (I cant remember if 3.5 or pathfinder has the feat chain that lets you get level 9 spell slots through feats alone) but probably wont.

theres a few flaws that will really work for my char (2 is the limit though). I will probably take up jack of all trades because its in my play style.

I may do a level dip in bard, the level 1 songs scale really well with level (especially counter song). I Get we are doing level 1 start, thats cool, but this is my projection and aim.

then, past that, I tend to be a sneaky sneak crafter and support player/character. thinks like alchemy, snow shows, land sleds with a sail... thats me. good fun zany ness.

anyone see any issues or have any complaints so far?

I'm a bit behind on the maps, hoping to have them up later today. Still can't find a program that I like and has the features I want. The one I have been using so far is good for walls and floors but doesn't have object icons to drop in, or allow drawing on the map.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
It is a less then optimal starting position.

But getting your 1 level dip into a two classes when the core of your build is a focus in a third...can be a nice game mechanic...and also makes an interesting background of being fickle when chosing a career.

If...you can survive long enough to level the XP penalty for multi class becomes worth it by lvl 7.

But let's be honest a -10% xp penalty per class is a big price to pay for the versatile skill set.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
if you make your core class a favored class, mines going to be ranger (sword of the arcane order), and only do a level dip in things, you dont get an xp penalty.

im already dipping in mage/wizard, its kinda how that whole thing works. I wont get level 9 spells, unless theres a feat chain me into them, but I dont need them.

so 1/2. its been a while since i played 3.5 but since this is going to be more sandbox i may dip bard or rogue because for some reason something in me says thats important. ill have to do research though.

but, yes, background/story fun explaining the level dip :) its not about the optimizing (though, I promise you won't think me useless... i make a point of it).

Re: ABILITY SCORES
You can multiclass in three classes still but it really only works if the one you put the most levels in is your favored class and you keep the other two low.

For example the classic Elven Fighter/Thief/Magic-User

Fighter (Armored Mage) 1, Rogue 2, Wizard 17 is a valid build, however you will rely more on Wizard and magic than 1E or 2E where you probably leaned more on Thief and Fighter.

However if you go higher say Fighter (Armored Mage) 4 to get that weapon specialization and Rogue 4 to get the uncanny dodge and then 12 Wizard means you can only cast 6th level spells.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
I refuse to play 4, just everything about it seems to disgust me and I usually stop trying to force myself when I get to social action rules.

5e is kinda lame, putting extra attacks and feats as class features rather than basic char level features. it's just trying to punish people for multi classing and that pisses me off. you guys already said multi classing is suboptimal, there are some cases it works but normally no. Yet, they want to actually PUNISH multi classing as an inherent mechanical structure? rude.

it doesn't even help either cause the moment I get cunning actions for a rogue I switch classes anyways and watch as gm's scream in panic and pain while a rogue wrecks their npc's from a single bush or boulder.

another good way to compare all this.
3.5 and pathfinder vs 5e are kinda like windows 7 vs windows 10.

and 4e is like windows 8. hint/note people screamed in agony over windows 8. they jumped off that ship so fast its not even funny.

No real access to healing other than use magic device and getting a wand of cure light wounds
I will probably hit the skill trick related to healing, but skill tricks are only sometimes useful and limited



On a side note Pathfinder did a good job on the rewrite of the 3.5 skill list and rules
Starting skill points are not times 4
Instead when you put a point into a class skill you get a +3 bonus
No cross class skills (1 point to buy a rank in a skill)
Spot, listen became perception
Move silently and hide merged into stealth
Gather information is a use of diplomacy

yeah, agree to disagree.
the above listed reasons are the biggest reasons why i don't use pathfinder when i run games.

it is always better to have more options then less

I have characters with 3 pages of skills because there is a difference between (craft basket weaving) and (craft rattan furniture), and (craft reed-boat)

just as there is a difference in general metal working and working with specific metals (gold/silver/copper/brass/iron/etc)

I agree, I love options.

I dont mind either 3.5 or pathfinder skill systems. though I admit the stealth all in one and search all in one tends to make me happy.

I dont mind the different catagories though, they tend to be more realistic in 3.5

ok, ill take the reserve magic feat then. I can free heal us up to half and we can stretch out the fast heals, and such, more. as a ranger, i should also get good berries (not yet, but like next level or so.) so that'll help with food needs and such. Im looking at the spell hydrafy to help against emergency thirst issues as well. coincidentally, hydrafy fits the pre requisites for healing touch. Yay.

I also tend to love using things like tears to wine or those nice, fun, alcohol making spells. Who doesnt love alcohol?

  I've played one 4th and one 5th ed game: 4th was just crap; 5th not so bad, but the magic item system really bugs me. I'll stick with 3.5.
  2nd was fine, with or without the Players Options add-ons.

Stuff.,.,


yeah, agree to disagree.
the above listed reasons are the biggest reasons why i don't use pathfinder when i run games.

it is always better to have more options then less

I have characters with 3 pages of skills because there is a difference between (craft basket weaving) and (craft rattan furniture), and (craft reed-boat)

just as there is a difference in general metal working and working with specific metals (gold/silver/copper/brass/iron/etc)


However there is such a thing as general or specialized knowledge and transferable skills
Craft /profession skills still allow you to pick as many options as you like:
So yes you can still pick all those options it just looks something like this
Craft (alchemy)
Craft ( armor)
Craft (poison)
Craft ( weapons)

Or maybe if it’s just a single point in three different ones
Profession (barber, soldier, sailor, herbalist)

No rule prevents you doing any of that

It is true a metallurgist may not actually know how to weld; and vice versa

I don't understand the need for most of the skills or how finely they are split. The game is supposed to be about adventurous events happening to adventurers who are out on an adventure so who cares about basket weaving or furniture making? Being able to make a boat could be useful but the other things don't seem to be worth anyone taking the time to record on their character sheet.

SPlit the metalworking into precious and practical metals and be done with it.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
re: the skill list character sheet

the GM at the time was playing with the idea of a (class-less) (level less) system where everything was a skill check.

there was no xp handed out just skill points so

will save...skill check

attack...skill check

ac...skill check

not my favorite system; but it was fun to have an infinite amount of options and the ability to invent new skills. it was an attempt to replicate (sword art online) where everything is skill based.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
I usually prefer a game with a bunch of pick-and-choose skills rather than classes and levels but not with so many fine subdivisions and things not related to adventure and excitement. For example, the goldsmithing from earlier; to be a skilled goldsmith requires years of study and apprenticing along with a collection of expensive, delicate tools. I doubt someone would be able to have any real skill in that profession while also being a combat trained swordsman, wizard, priest of some god, etc.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
In reply to Clover (msg # 215):

that sounds like a decent system.

As for skills, ya. I agree. why does carpentry, wood working, chiseling, and boat making all need to be different?

Perhaps if one wants to insist on it, they could at least use an expanded synergy system. every related skill give s +2 or +3, up to like half the highest synergy skill.

That way if i want to make a bow but all I have is spear carving and boat making I can at least maybe get a +4 rather then a big fat 0.
this is why i tend to get things like jack of all trades. Just drop that and then comfortably focus on the important skills like stealth and perception... never have to worry again.

"ah, but do you have the skill"

"no, but fuck you cause i can roll anyways... and with a modifier"

Re: ABILITY SCORES
I think I get it!!!!!
So if I want to make boats, shields, axes, totems, bowls, holy symbols,  clothing, gear and have sailing, navigation and survival skills I would just put my ranks into:
Profession (Viking)

; )

I would let a person use profession solidier to make survival, healing, etc rolls
Probably just cap the difficulty of what can be done with it

So profession herbalist can make minor poisons, minor alchemy items, etc

Re: ABILITY SCORES
you arent in the same room as the boy, you all went into the hall and started talking.
if you look on the map, you will see the hall that goes east and west. the boy is in the room north of it.

also, as a note, iajutsu focus doesnt work any different for shattering or breaking things except to do more damage.

by the by, gm.
If Beagan insists on smashing the stone, which would also smash the part of the stone thats fuzed with the boy... thus shattering part of the boy...

Nixif is going to just stop and back off... having no part in that.

the above is the code for the map.

I used rpol's table script because it breaks things down into cells (like excel) and if you keep the content small then it can easily represent the 5 foot square grids.

As mentioned in the previous post, it seems to stop registering repetitive txt in the same row so if you want a bigger map then you will need to add more symbols for walls and barriers.... however, this is perfect for wilderness because you want to distinguish tress from bushes anyways.

If you JUST want marcheing oder without a map, a 5 by 5 grid can work too. (though, sometimes eccentric scouts, like myself, like to be something like 15 or 30 feet ahead of the part and that may need something like a 5 by 9 (or 9 by 5) grid. rude ass me's.

Yes...a word of nurturing utterance grants a fast heal

While the reverse does damage

The exact phrasing of the reverse states that it speaks a small piece of the creature out of existance.

Whether the pieces is the nose is the piece the goes is not under Clover's control...but a 22 intimidate proves that clover believes he can do it.

reversed utterance of word of nurturing, minor:
You unmake a portion of the creature's being as you utter the reverse of the life giving words. You deal 2d6 damage to the subject. If you concentrate for 1 round (a standard action) and the target remains I. Range (60ft) you deal another 2d6 damage at the end of your next turn

Re: ABILITY SCORES
ah, nice flavoring. I've never seen this sort of thing in play before and may actually try to use it in the future as the minor versions (gained from feats) seem like a great alternative to spell casting. It doesnt seem to scale too well but the utility words (and healing words) dont seem to need to scale (it seems to me they can be used over and over again).

Well since my threat took effect that is my action for the first round.

And since it took effect then that confirms that the unmoving "statue" is infact a living creature with a 100% certainty, this is known because the reverse utterance only affects living creatures.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
Two things, first.... So none of the skeletons have been defeated? Do the look badly damaged at least?

Two, if we aren't breaking from combat, why are we rerolling initiative?

I'm going to also make some rolls for these skeles. I didn't see how they spawned so I can't roll for that but something feels off.

Sorry, did |I get editions mixed up? Do we roll new init every round? If you'd rather not I don't mind.

These are big skeletons, larger than human. Some are damaged but it can be hard to tell in the dim light with everyone moving around and fighting and what not.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
Ah, that does make a difference if they are large skeletons. In the future, please include that detail.

If you prefer, requiring a perception check would be fair... but Since size is kind of an obvious thing then I would then appreciate a call for a perception check because I dont think I'd guess to check their size.

As a note, I am in no way upset. I was just shocked and now I am presenting ways I would prefer it be handled in the future.

Also:
quote:
Initiative
Initiative Checks

At the start of a battle, each combatant makes an initiative check. An initiative check is a Dexterity check. Each character applies his or her Dexterity modifier to the roll. Characters act in order, counting down from highest result to lowest. In every round that follows, the characters act in the same order (unless a character takes an action that results in his or her initiative changing; see Special Initiative Actions).

If two or more combatants have the same initiative check result, the combatants who are tied act in order of total initiative modifier (highest first). If there is still a tie, the tied characters should roll again to determine which one of them goes before the other.

I think this stone demon is some sort of "weeping angel... because it has not moved while Clover have been staring at it, which could mean that it is just a statue and nothing more....BUT my utterances ONLY work on creatures (and animated objects) so since I am doing damage I am all the more compelled to ensure that Clover never looks away from the demon.

the gm could also be circumventing meta assumptions and just having the damage slowly make a statue disappear?
(unlikely)


or it could be some weird possession thing, or maybe the stone itself is like living metal but instead is living stone.

You could probably do rolls though to determine, true speech is a natural phenomenon? maybe knowledge nature?
Just some thoughts though.

I would prefer it be changed that at least he doesnt move and does that 6 damage to one of the greased skeles.

I think the DM is applying the DR to my attacks :(, when I'm using a weapon that would bypass it :( (unless something wonky with these skeletons)

I also keep wondering how someone using a rapier is killing them so easily as that would have the DR applied to it....

Re: ABILITY SCORES
Nixif: Grease isn't flammable. Nothing in the rules says anything about being able to do that and it would be too powerful for a 1st level spell. As an example, Web has rules for setting it on fire so by not having something similar in the Grease description I'd have to say that it can't be ignited.

Orlen: I'm still trying to 'calibrate' your characters. Almost all of you have great AC but inflict useless damage! Part of the gnome & halfling setting, I guess. And the person who started all this and wanted a g&h game never actually joined in so I'm up for loosening that rule for when a few of your PCs get killed and are being replaced.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
Grease lasts 1 round per caster level so it must be quite volatile (is that the word I want? Evaporates rapidly, I mean) so burning it must do little damage. And why think that a spell effect in a fantasy world will act the same as in our world?

Flame breath weapon would evaporate it instantaneously, same with other magical fires.

And if it does burn why assume it is hot enough to cause damage?

But the grease spell itself clears up that problem with its own description, when it says clearly that it is not flammable.

So spell level 1 "grease" is NOT flammable

Spell level 2 "incindiary slime" is like grease but IS flammable and it can be found in Complete Mage of 108.

I could heal a max of 2 more if I rolled high on a truespeak check.

But my check DC is ...

...7 uses of the utterance at a +2 DC per use = +14 to DC
...giving a final DC of 37 and at the moment if I roll a Nat 20 I can hit a 41 dc I have an second utterance that could allow me to use the first 2 more times so up to four uses of (fast heal 2, that lasts 5 rounds) speak up if you need a use of it.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
Oh it has limits.

The DC increase (per utterance) by +2 every time it is used.

In the process of level up you can invest +1 skill point per level.

The base DC is 15+(2*CR) for enemy

The base DC is 15+(2*HD) for allies

The base DC is 15+(2*caster level) for magic items

Flat DC 25 for non magical items




But there are some things truenamer can do that no other spell casters can do.

But there are an overwhelming number of arguments that factually prove why the class is stacked against the player and becomes unplayably weak by lvl 7

guys, we need to determine book keeping and where everything is all at health and healing wise.

For sures, everyone is at least at half hp, who else has healing they can spare and who else is healing?

I am not going to have my bat use it's tongue for the remainder of the dungeon, without healing, as it got dangerously close to being cut off.
but it can fight and do stuff without it's tongue so it doesnt NEED healing.

I took no damage, so I'm fine.

Who NEEDS healing above half to feel like they arent about to die?

How does one get utterances and such? is it a feat per 'spell' or a skill point per? (like languages)

If it's not feat costly, I may pick up a little "I learned it from those two over there"

You can gain a "first level" one with a feat...but to use it you have to meet/exceed the same DC I do.

But that said there are some really useful ones. That would be useful to almost any class.

Freedom of movement for one round...aka Nat 20 an escape artist

+5 non type bonus to a single skill for 5 rounds.

Just to name a few.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
I may have to look into it also
As I can spend inspiration to add my level to the skill check letting me hit higher DCs when I really need to

Of course is an utterance better than skill tricks for situational purposes?

Of course is an utterance better than skill tricks for situational purposes?

Skill tricks can be used once per combat encounter or...I believe...1 hr out of combat.

Utterances can be used repeatedly untill you can no longer meet the DC.

The DC increases by +2 each time it is used in a 24 hour period.

You can't have more then one "version" of the utterance in effect.

Utterances provoke AOOs unless you raise the DC by 5

Utterances are supernatural not spelllike

Utterances are subject to spell resistance unless you raise the DC by +5

If you raise the DC by 20 you can use use utterances in zone of silence of any caster level.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
you said the grease evaporates rapidly, why would it impact anything?

I feel like tydor left the game, which I can understand you making this hard. or maybe they were an npc that is now no longer going to help. perhaps say that? it's better than us spinning our wheels.

not mad, and probably jumping the gun again.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
The grease would ruin any footprints that could be tracked in the area it landed.

Tydor did leave the game but I wanted to find a reason for it. You all don't have to care if you don't want to. I mean, he will probably be in the complex somewhere and you are exploring the place anyway so the party will come across him at some point. Unless he ran away back to the surface.

I think it's great to have him disappear and be a storyhook :) rather than just having him disappear. Tydor was with us a while, and while we know his player left, our characters wouldn't know that and I think would be concerned about him.

I don't want any confusion...the any mug does not exist in game. It is a homebrew and wiki item.

I manifested it out of thin air and imagination to try and get the game moving again.

We are playing a child's tea party with an imaginary item... inside of an imaginary game.

So IF the gm does not ban-hammer the item...clover has no claim on it... even though he would very much want it.

so few GMs run games where they allow truenamers at all, let alone allow them access to the game mechanics that allow them to see some measure of success..

so for me that is why.

Jess is one of the gm's I refuse to play the games of. they have a bit of a screwed up sense of psychology that I find irreconcilable.


If you going to call me out like that at least give your fellow players context for your accusations.

thats not me, but this also suggests you are jess.

although, I do disagree with that idea. one can purchase slaves in a culture that believes in slavery and not be evil... even more so if they are purchasing the slaves with the express intent to give the slaves the best possible life the person can safely provide them in such a cultural environment.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
What a distasteful edit. for anyone wondering why I am talking about slaves... jess here, aka clover, thought I was a player they had a debate with on whether buying slaves is evil or not. Jess stated they feel that buying a slave for ANY reason is evil, period. or, maybe not the EXACT words jess used but they did say buying a slave was just evil and something along the lines of for any reason.

and this also is another example of why i wont play games gm'ed by jess, they basically just gaslight'ed me right there. I dont really mind playing alongside someone like this, it doesnt matter in the end, but I wont put in time and effort where someone like this controls the fate of that time and effort.

and in case you try to edit again on me

by the way, you could have just pm'ed me, you could have even just left it alone. I didnt know YOU were jess until you said something about arguing with a player about slavery and the nuances of evil.

instead, you made things worse and reinforced my statement.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
You make some very good points.

After looking into it, you are correct. I mistook you for someone else.

It was wrong of me to speak without double checking my information. If I had double checked I could have save you from needing to defend your self from my false accusations.

For my part in causing you harm, I apologize.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
I have found myself without the time to be able to run a game currently.

I had thought about trying to find people to co-gm and run a whole series from start to finish.  Like everyone in the game is also a gm so that no one gets too much work on them.

I have done it once in a play by post game and it was ok, except when it was your turn you just went any direction you wanted, and then whoever took over next would have to go from where it ended.  But perhaps with something set, it would go easier.....

if you want to do a co gm thing, I have a game i've left on stanby, pathfinder, that if someone wanted to co gm on then I'd pick that game back up. I have 2 player s who have been loyally sitting in it too (and I think one of the players from here was, or maybe is, there as well.)

Re: ABILITY SCORES
That might be good are they in a known adventure path or something else?

Any chance the two players might be interested in rotating GM duties?

Maybe haul Sir J with us....

In reply to Beagan WobbleCog (msg # 450):

no, its kind of sandbox, I have a custom map with a general plot and some side shit made out but its meant to be free flow. The big bad will become more and more of a problem until its dealt with (they can also serve the big bad if they really want) I made it so they have plenty of time before things get really hairy.

Re: ABILITY SCORES
You can do gm'ing as well as play a char, the game is designed to allow player independence.
