Those shows scare me.  I always figured I'd end up in jail for assault with a frozen chicken or something if one ever approached me.

I already get dangerously close every time someone in the supermarket comes up to me and offers me coupons to do a marketing survey.  I mean, I might be easy, but I'm not cheap.

I'll let you know that Gwydion Redleaf will be making more reliable posts from now on.  Now if we could just find a cursed artifact that will let me change the guy's name.

And BTW, if Gwydion's personality changes a bit too much, let me know.  Verisimillitude is challenging sometimes.

'People'  sounds like that might be giving some of the lads and lasses too much credit - just like Ladies and Gentlemen.  But then, again, nothing's perfect and I make no pretensions towards consistency (except in posting).

You're on hairball patrol then.

For the Stallanford group, on your combat map, note that I made your avatars slightly large for the map scale.  Three people can (usually) fit in to fight across a ten foot corridor, even if it looks like you're all 4' wide on that thing :)

If you really want something that might cause an allergic reaction in the poor sot, try roasted peanuts.

Or better yet, just let Infithe know about some of his other activities and she'll take care of him herself.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Updates incoming later today everyone.  Apologies for the delay (I feel like I say that a lot lately).

Just so that everyone knows, I'm quite possibly in the process of moving -- I won't know for sure until the end of the month, but things are looking very positive in that direction.  Even if it's a sure thing, I won't have a date until the end of the month either, and so am planning for the worst (an immediate relocation) rather than the long term (a relaxed month or two in which to deal with stuff).

I'll be moving a good distance, and changing countries, so the move itself may take a week or two before things settle and all my utilities are set up again (though if it takes a full two weeks to get Internet, I know I'll die!).  I'll definitely give you guys some heads up before I head out for that, but this just a kind of "look out -- it's coming!" sort of thing. :)

Long term internet absence is bad.  Happened to us last year when we moved between countries...   We expected a week or two, and it ran to a little over three.  Aaaaagh!  I still have nightmares about it.  :(

Possibly not... I know that in one of the states in America, it's illegal to carry a concealed weapon if it's over six feet long...

Edit: found it... it's actually in Seattle.

Hehehehehehehe...wow.  Infithe, that was beautiful.

And I learned a new word!

(Illation.  Though I'm not sure what differentiates it from inference.  It seems to be defined as, "An inference drawn from something", and I've never heard of an inference that wasn't, so I think it might be a pure synonym.  And since inference also starts with I...is there a reason you didn't use that?  Was it just to teach me a new word?  That would have been very kind...hehe...)

That game isn't that hard.  A tougher one is to stick with monosyllabic words.  If you say something with two or more syllables, you lose.

Problem with that game is, you can't explain it to someone while you're playing.  Well, you can, but it's hard to do.

Given my luck with whackable spiders, I could use the extra private xp. As long as the rolls stay unfudged, anyway.

edit: y'know, in one of my other games on rpol, I joined the group kinda late, and ended up as a prisoner the party freed, and all of my equipment was sitting on a table nearby. Even the food. Apparently it's on the evil overlord list...

Well, normally I'd take it as standard prisoner treatment, according to the Isengard Conventions, but the treaty clearly states that armor should be freshly washed and folded in case of escape, and mine was just dropped.

So that's just weird.

Short for "antonym"... a word that expresses a meaning opposed to the meaning of another word, in which case the two words are antonyms of each other.

All I'm actually saying is that it's a lovely picture.  If you want to infer anything from it's placement right alongside some silly little "ant.", well, that's your own business, and I'll be standing over here.

Actually, that's not far enough.  Over HERE, maybe.  In this bunker.

Admiring this very nice picture of our DM, and ignoring whatever abbreviations may or may not have coincidentally fallen next to it.  It seems, I notice, to have been taken on a particularly good hair day...

Hmm...you know, this bunker seems a little deeper..maybe I'll stay here instead...

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
*stumbles in and flops, face down, in the middle of the floor*

It's been an awful week, lemme say.  Was supposed to only be in Ohio from Friday night to Tuesday morning, but my guy's work arranged a trip to Colorado for him from Tuesday through Thursday since we were "in the States anyhow", and so I stayed with family while he ran that trip for them.

Anyway, I'm tired as hell, but back, and still sick -- my brother's wife has seven brothers and sisters each with three to six kids themselves, and I think I got exposed to every nasty little virus going around in the course of the week there.

I'm sitting up today and not actively wishing death on myself, so I think I must be getting better :)

Will try to get back into the swing of things this week as I gear up for a move.  Yeah -- fun!

Well, sure, in England, but I'm given to understand England is one of those strange backwater countries where people walk places, and apparently breathe some unusual gas called "fresh air".

Here in the US, the only `walking' we do is to and from the car, and we breathe smog, like nature intended.  (Well, it did!  The atmosphere was FILLED with CO2 before those pesky blue-green algae came along and mucked everything up...hehe...)

And don't even get me started on those funny, non-motorized, two-wheeled contraptions people in other countries use to get around on.  First thing we did was take the front wheel off those, pick 'em up off the floor, and line 'em up in a room with a little monitor on it to tell you how far you WOULD have gone if you were actually going anywhere.

Hi Spike :)

Lemme see if I can get some updates in this afternoon.  I'm eating soda crackers today.  Mmmm, solid food!  Crackers rule!

The good news is that my dad's surprise 60th birthday party (what I was actually travelling for) was a smash.  I didn't think I was going to get to go, but the opportunity came up to do it cheaply, and I jumped on it.  Mom got people he went to highschool with to show, and guys he was in Vietnam with to travel in to hang out with him for an evening of chili dogs, ice cream, cake, and karaoke.  Lots of fun all around.

Anyhow, back to my catching up!

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Oh, I don't mind.  Here, I'll quote it out and break the brackets on the PM.  See, first, Infithe said:

Infithe:
Infithe hangs back and allows those so are so inclined to further explore the room.  Moving over to Tan she whispers something as she leans in closer.  Private to Tanindara Briacat: "Quanfinigon is so vain.  I bet you five copper he'll think we're whispering mean things about him."

She winks at the woman and puts a finger over her lips.


And then I said:
Tanindara:
Tanindara winks at Infithe, and whispers back.  Private to Infithe Versalain: "You're on.  I don't think he's really so bad."


So I guess I owe her five copper pieces..sigh

I have completely lost my internet connection and I don't know when, or if, I will get it back.  I'm doing everything I can but I'm going to be MIA for a while longer.  This is a quick generic message to everyone to let them know that I am not dead.  I can't stay on this computer much longer so please do not worry if I fail to make a further reply for a while.  I'll let everyone know when I have it fixed.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
RPoL will soon be upgrading from its current version (1.4) to 1.5, which introduces a ton of new features and functionality to the site.

I've copied this game over, just in case anyone wants to muck around with it (I'll consider it a free-for-all over there), and help us test the new stuff, and the old stuff which might be broken now ;-)

19:59, Yesterday: DM rolled 5 using 2d20.

That wasn't Sularius's natural agility keeping him safe...hehehe...wow.

And,
DR:
09:50, Today: Tanindara Briacat rolled 1 using 1d100. Move Silently.

I just had to say, go me!  I mean, what are the odds of that?  That's got to be something, like, I don't know, one in a million, right?  At least one in a thousand, anyway.  Well, OK, fine, one in a hundred, kind of exactly.  But still.  It's cool when it happens.  You'd be happy, too. grin

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
I've had a few questions lately about whether characters get bonus damage should they roll a natural 20.  We long ago voted that down, but since the questions are coming up again, let me tell you how it would work, then you can vote yae or nay.



If we had a critical system, it would work like this:

  • If you roll a natural 20 on 1d20, you roll 1d20 again.  If that d20 is again a natural 20, you score double damage.  It would work the same way for mobs and npcs.

  • If you roll a natural 1 on a 1d20, you roll 1d20 again.  If you again get a 1, you have made a critical fumble -- likely your weapon is lost, broken, or seriously damaged.  It would work the same for NPCs and mobs.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
   What is the stance on weapon critical threat range?
   As in 3.0 and up, where a rapier has a critical threat range of 18-20/x2.
   Where if you score a hit on a target and the die is between 18-20, your damage is multiplied by the critical (x2) after a second confirmation roll which only needs to be enough to hit the target.

   e.g. :
   Dorimier the theif swings his rapier at the kobold (19 + Bonuses).
   He rerolls to confirm (3 + Bonuses). And does not add the multiplier.

My vote would still be for no.  (Well, not that I was here the first time; so my new vote, now, for the very first time, would be to continue on with the current status of no...um, or something.)

Fingers has a good point, for one.  And, well, we're playing Basic.  If we're even going to talk about bringing in threat ranges and stuff, then we have to wonder why our dwarves are just dwarves.  I like the descriptive aspect to the numbers - a natural twenty is still fun to describe as a dead-on hit - but I'm happy with just that.

Absolutely not, to be blunt.  Can't stand that D&D 3 stuff, and not interested in going any more complex than what I stated above.  :)  The above is a popular Basic house rule -- D&D 3 and up is just number crunching insanity/inanity, imho ;-)

   It does get a touch much at times.

   A really dagger does not have a "critical" slice or cut to it, that is in the hands of the person using it.

   But it is a game after all!

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
*slaps the stop button on Auren's 8-track of Halloween hits*

I think I even have some old charts around here for Basic D&D for the results of Crit Hits/Crit Misses in place of damage.  Some instant death to be sure -- but often more interesting things like lost eyes or digits.

Anyway, it does seem that no one wants to throw their own life away for the chance to have some cool monster kills, which is sort of where I put Crit Hits/Misses, *grin*.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
I vote no. In 3.0 and up, it wasn't quite as bad if someone criticaled you, because you had a nice safe zone between 0 and -10. As I understand it, we don't have that in this version, so someone doing double damage to you really would be fatal. It's worth giving it up.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Live dangerously, I say!  The chance of rolling a 20 is 5%; the chance of rolling it again is another 5%.  I'm willing to risk a 1 in 400 chance to get creamed for the chance to smiting a great blow towards evil.

I've made a snobby elf not of my choosing my own, but creating a good death scene is nearly as fun as kissing the local barmaid or killing the BBEG! (at least in RP terms)

   Yeah the catch 22.
   Even though I like the concept of getting scarred or loosing a finger or hand in combat, great for character definition.
   I think critical damage is better kept as an ability thing where you need to know your opponent and more so your weapon.
   Then again...

Hmmm... is Lassie in this game?  Then why isn't she looking for the Rahib?  I bet Lassie could find him easily, even if he was down a well, or something.

What's that, Lassie?  You say Ildrulf should be worrying less about the Rahib, and more about bringing sandwiches and tea for Infithe, chop chop, or he's going to be in trouble?  Yes?  And...oh, well, of course with the crusts cut off, I'm sure he remembers the last time he forgot that...

Or, that may make it all the easier!  You can lock them all in a room together, and they'll never even realize you've done it!  It's brilliant.

Admittedly, they won't be out of your way or anything, but you can keep thinking gloating thoughts like, "Ah-haha, you are all my prisoners!"

And you can post from the shower, I'm sure.  "As you all walk down the hallllllffzzzzztt**sprrk!"

Last friday my daughter (8 years old) was hit by a car. She is home from the hospital and looks like will fully recover but is at this time pretty banged up with bruises and hasa 2 small fractures on her skull. Hence my time right now is very limited.

I would never tease someone suffering from a terrible condition like the PITS.  Never.  I find the very...sniff thought, to be ab..sniff..just abhorrent!

Um, but does anybody else smell that?

That dank, musty smell, with just a hint of musk?  Like...like one might associate to a slightly wet panther ghoul?  Admittedly, I don't see one, but by the strength of that smell, there must be, like, six of them, right...gaspInvisible panther ghouls, right behind you!  Aaiieeeee!

blink blink  Oh, wait...nevermind, Ildrulf.  You can come down from the chandelier.  Quan just took his shoes off again.  Sorry.  It's such an easy mistake to make, you know?

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
By the way, I've made sure the Party Notebook threads for each of you two groups is in a Notice now, and made sure the "story" part is fairly up to date.

While some have commented that it is unnecessary due to having a private ScratchPad, private information is not the purpose of the Party Notebook.  The Party Notebook is useful for sharing information your party members would likely know, but which is difficult to keep track of in a play-by-post environment, and awkward to keep asking for.

Examples of material a player might wish to share about their character:  spells available, languages spoken, number and type of light sources carried, and so on.  This way your friends can glance at the notebook and say, "You, light one of those torches strapped to your back!" rather than, "Hey, anyone here have any way to make this room not dark?"

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Basic is ... basic.  There are no specific rules for firing into melee, just that you must be at minimum 5' away to use a missile weapon.

I generally require that someone firing a weapon have a clear line of sight to their target, with no intervening bodies or heads in the way, else I may rule that they either don't fire, or they miss even if their roll says otherwise.  If it becomes persistant (the firing into a dense melee without a clean line of sight), I may start hitting party-mates with the missiles, but mostly I try to be relaxed about it.

If the person is firing over the head of a shorter person who is right in front of them at a target some distance away, that's no problem.  If they're firing some distance at a monster who has a party member closer to it than them, then problems are likely.

Unless RPOLs cast listing lies about log in times then Infithe isn‘t Cruinne out to get me in disguise. However, I am now afraid because some one else seems to be out to get me! O.O

The PM question was dead serious as Infithe struck a familiar note. Some one else claiming to be terse of writing wrote me a PM asking a question and offering aid in another game not long ago. She actually took the time to thank me for just being nice in my reply. Others hadn’t been and had stooped to being  mean over small writing issues she was struggling with between languages.

Me being terse was a jest, though, as I have been a bit wordy here in the OOC lately, so no, not me.  But I would probably say thanks as well.  :)

Let see those who complained about her writing write in her native language, I say.  I am no English expert, but I do my best, and I write a lot better English than most other write Swedish (my native language).

It’s alright Infithe, you are allowed to be verbose since you have cool things to say. :o) I was just stunned that she was having trouble here at RPOL over it as her language mastery was nearly on par with your own (which is very good.)

People educated in English seem to write it better than most students native to the language anymore, anyway.

Out of curiosity, do they translate a lot of anime and RPG materials into Swedish?

Quanfinigon, cleric of Traladara; as Marvin the paranoid android would say, "You didn't ask."  ;)


RPoL always seems to hit a slow spot about 21-22 o'clock (that is 8 PM to 9 PM GMT) here in Sweden, at least for me.

Anime?  No idea, not at all interested.  :P  Pokemon and such stuff, for kids, gets translated, I know, since I have had the misfortune to see it on the telly a few times.  More "mature" stuff?  No, I think that remains subtitled, as is tradition in Sweden (except when it comes to material for kids).

RPGs translated?  Not that know.  We all learn English in school (and a lot of us learn another language (or more) as well, such as French, German or Spanish).  Beside, it is a lot cheaper to buy English material anyway.

Books is what is usually translated (both ficion and fact); which is fine by me.

More than you asked for but, uh, hey, you did ask!  8)

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
It should, however, be noted that Sweden has produced a few RPGs of its own, over the years.

At least one of them, Kult was later translated to English, and gained an international following.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Actually I was told, perhaps incorrectly, that Sweden produced an unusual amount of RPGs for a small nation. Being an old hobbyist sort, a few had aroused my interest. I had wondered if translations were considered for Neotech and EON or even if they were still alive in the market?

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Yes, Sweden has produced an awful lot of role-playing games, from several different companies.  Lately one of those games appears to indeed serve as the base of the recent Western game, "Aces and Eights" - there is no way those details can be so similar, even identical, without either being either purchased... or stolen.  ;)

"Neotech" and "Eon"?  No clue, does not ring a bell with me anyway.  "Kult" is not for me, but I do like the old "Mutant".

I can’t read the website but they are supposedly located <a href="http://www.neogames.se/index.htm">here.</a> I get the idea they may be too rules heavy for me though. As to Aces & Eights, we started by swiping the Swiss cheeses & chocolates and then branding them American. Why not just pack the RPGs on the boat too? ;o)

Ahh, yes...the good people of Typoria have come out with a number of RPGs, too, and had some of their own stolen, I might add.  There's no way that the first edition World of Darkness could have had so many of the same editing errors by sheer coincidence...

True.

Someone's posse is good for all sorts of things:
- cleaning the kitchen
- mowing the lawn
- walking the dog
- cooking
- wash the dishes
- buy the groceries (be careful about the list!)

All you have to do is torture a couple and the rest'll get the idea that you aren't going to let them slack off.

The yo can watch Robot Wars, laugh at Mythbusters, and even watch a Monty Python flick or two!

Yes, that's why I said this:
Quanfinigon:

in response to this:
Orken Badaxe:
*Surprise* Nearly two hours since posting today and she didn’t take the bait… O.O, That’s sooo out of character!

Clever interplay eh? Briacat implied that I would make a good significant other to Orken, so I come back by implying that I usually respond to bait provided by Orken, with an underlying connection. Plus the confusing connotation of Quan being substituted into a female role twice in the same conversation, which reinforces the subtly implied potential connection between Q and O.

Confusionary tactics: success!

Chicken in the metaphorical sense? I hardly run away from danger, and I don't see anyone else in the group doing so either. Or maybe you're referring to the fact that Orken appears to be backing down from his verbal battle with the ladies.
Bit of advice: don't try to take on both of them at once. It doesn't work.

Where I live (very small place in northern California), if someone wants to change the subject during a conversation, they'll look about and then point and say "Look!  A chicken!"

Very random, sort of (but not really) funny, and definitely a change of subject.

The chicken may or may not actually be there.  Depends on where you're standing:  it is a very small town.

So, if each person could post in the thread what their character is doing, and what they're going to attempt to do next, that'd help me get things on the road.  :)

Unless, of course, it's a behind-the-scenes bet to see how long you can stand in that room talking before the Rahib and all his friends show up.  I mean, I suppose, he could come to you.

Awesome Plan 9

I believe that Ildrulf, Quanfinigon and Infithe are going to stay where they are (Ildrulf and Quanfinigon are hurt and I'm really hoping that Quan will go up a level with the XP he gains playing dice against Infithe).

The aforementioned Versalain twins will be wearing the clothes taken from the two thieves, as a Cunning Disguise™, with the intent of getting the drop on anybody who happens by.

Everybody else will, AFAIK, be going to steal some elf armour and stuff.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
I am trying to quit smoking and after being a pack a day man on little cigars for 20 years I am having some really wicked physical withdrawal symptoms. I actually had to try to smoke one to just eat a meal and after a full day without having smoked... The little cigar made me dizzy and high to the point I fell down. :o)

Put one of those lightning rods out in a tobacco field for me this summer. If nothing else I can stand downwind, inhale, and crack it up to dealing with pollution.

Speaking of dizzy and falling over... I've come down with my annual late winter/early spring flu.  Sorry for the quiet on my end.  I know you're all waiting for updates, so I'm going to try to get them in tonight.  If I don't, I'll definitely do them tomorrow.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Those of us in the Orc Cave can organize our methodology for dealing with things under the rules here in OOC.

*Combat movement rates are listed on the character sheet for each of us.
*1 square on the map represents 5’.
*Using the map compass to indicate movement directions is clearer than saying left or right even if done in an OOC line.

Once us poor meat shield types engage an enemy in melee, we become a buffer on the map you can hide behind that stands between you and a foe. If the foe tries to pass us by to get at you then they give us a free attack at their backside, in passing, with a bonus.

Otherwise, they have to make a fighting withdrawal straight back to disengage without exposing themselves to try and get around melee distance (5’) to get to you.

It’s something to consider when you position your character on the map during a battle. So by staying 2 or 3 squares behind when you want to cover behind a meat shield…

Did I get this right DM? I am close I hope. You are the master of the rules.

If any of you have thoughts on getting it together, by all means share! :o)

PS: Hope you get better soon DM.

*Wiki-Geeks* Dragonbait was a Saurial.

I enjoyed the old Pool of Radiance PC game.

In my day, the term cannon fodder would have gotten my character brutally killed by crossbow for spoiling the mood by introducing gunpowder terms into the setting. O.O

Do all of you make secret rolls in your group Ms Briacat? I was just noting that I didn’t see rolls from your group in the dice log and it goes back to November of last year. No big deal, just curious. *As always.*

Or has my poor meat shield Dwarf simply went on a killing spree for the past few months? O.O

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Greetings,

I am sorry for the lack of contact.  I shall attempt to explain it.  I am not asking for forgiveness.  I have failed in my duty and I know it.  Neither am I trying to be dramatic, just trying to explain.

During the Christmas Season, which is when most of you lost contact with me, a series of events occurred witch consumed my attention.  Most of these are family matters, and thus I am not at a liberty to reveal details, but I shall explain what I can.

First, I had family come to visit my self and my father, since we are sharing a house after the rest of the family left for the other side of the country for various reasons, and there was some natural strain there.  This was made worse however by a confrontation which made it clear that the family, now split right down the middle it seems, will not be getting back together again.

Second, shortly after the family visit ended there was a very unexpected death which threw many things into a time of chaos as the family attempted to deal with this on top of its other troubles.  This death has hit the extended family rather hard, and also drew into stark contrast how much my immediate family’s problems were affecting everyone.  It wasn’t pretty from where I was standing.  Since that time things have become even more ‘interesting’ and personal.

Third, I’ve been making several desperate attempts to find work.  These have included several trips out of town at a moments notice to pursue options and interviews.  Nothing has come of any of it, and now I’m broke.

This leads me to the final major item, I’m moving myself from one side of the US to the other in an attempt to either find work or at least a chance of a better education.  This has been consuming all of my hours for a while, and shall continue to do so.  The move itself has also placed me squarely in the middle of the current family problem, and my attempts at being the diplomat of the situation have not helped.

The bottom line is this.  I’ve been so filled with the politics of family, trying to keep a situations that has a huge potential to get volatile with the slightest provocation from going in that direction, that RPoL was simply too small of an issue on my radar.  I know that I should have made the time to post an explanation sooner than this.  That I did not is my failure and I don’t hide from that.

I’ve made it my motto that Life Comes First.  This means that, in light of the situations facing me and the uncertain future, I don’t even know if I’ll have internet by the end of this month onwards, I have had to reorganize all of my priorities.  In that reorganization RPoL got the short end of the stick.

I’m not saying that I’m leaving and never coming back, just that I’m not joining any new games and removing myself from the ones I’m in.  I plan on coming back, but I don’t know when so I don’t want anyone holding a spot for me in case anything else unexpected happens.  Please don’t take any of this personally.  It is just a new chapter of Life and I’m making some difficult choices right now so that it will be better later.

Peace, Love, and all Good Things to each and every one of you..

Technically, this is an Anomia.

Anomia: A problem with word finding. Impaired recall of words with no impairment of comprehension or the capacity to repeat the words.

In "The Case of Anna H." who had anomia, the neurologist/writer Oliver Sacks noted that: "When I showed her some kitchen matches, she recognized them at once, visually, but could not say the word 'match,' saying instead, 'That is to make fire.'"

I come from an old school line of thought where writer’s block is always the result of either a) being lazy, or b) feeling disinterested. Sometimes the combination of these two factors is called being burned out on a genre but it still boils down to a and b…

How hard is it to write something akin to, “I run forward toward the monster and swing my sword?”

Then there is a fugue state. I know, it’s one of those fancy psychological terms but that’s basically where you sit back and blank out like a dope head trapped in a moment without memory, personality, or real context in which to place the world to move forward past some stressful obstacle before you.

Sometimes that’s called a brain fart too but only when it's an every now and then occurring kinda thing.

It's "donkeys".  Every fantasy game has donkeys (or mules, which are a half-donkey each, and thus add up to full donkeys).

Plus, if there are any ogres in the game, each of them will have a hench-donkey.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
The last console I bought was a Playstation.  Well, and I got a PSP last year at Christmas but I hardly use it.  I tend to rather play PC games.

Two important things --

First: Please welcome Hathrik, who will be lurking a while and deciding if he's up to putting up with us.


Second: I've had a serious illness pop up in the family.  While it's not insanely serious, it's made me a bit scatty and difficult-of-concentration.  In the end, it looks like it may involve surgery and a bit of recovery, so travel time and away time for me as I'll be doing what I can to help out.  I don't have dates set yet; there's sort of a big thing tomorrow where the decisions about what to do will be made, so I might be able to give you all more information then.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Here's a puzzle for everyone.  I've been staring at the Basic rules trying to read intent on attacks from behind, as the grammar is (I believe) clear, but seems logically inconsistant.

There are only two places I can find in the Basic Rules where attacks from behind are mentioned.

The first is under the information on PC Classes, under the Thief class:
    When striking unnoticed from behind, a thief gains a bonus of +4 on "to hit" rolls and inflicts twice the normal amount of damage.

That's pretty clear.

The second is under the information on Retreats, in the section on Combat:
    Any movement backwards at more than ½ the normal movement rate is a retreat. If a creature tries to retreat, the opponent may add +2 to all "to hit" rolls, and the defender is not allowed to make a return attack.  In addition to the bonus on "to hit" rolls, the attacks are further adjusted by using the defender's Armor Class without a shield.  (Any attacks from behind are adjusted in the same manner.)


Now, strictly reading this for its grammar, this means that only the shield adjustment is made for most people's attacks from behind, and the +2 only comes into play if the person being attacked from behind is also fleeing.  However, I'm not convinced that the editing of D&D books was ever very clear (errors abound!), especially on fine points like that.

So, what are your interpretations and wishes?  Would the thieves' bonus stack with this shieldless bonus?  Also let me know if you find any other information in the Basic rules on attacks from behind.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Overall, I think the two situations look `stackable' - thieves know how to attack from behind, specifically, so turning your back on one is necessarily a bit of an extra risk.  (Unless, of course, they're your own Loyal Teammate.  You just keep your attention in that sarcophagus, Ildrulf.  Nothing to worry about!)  It does seem logical to me that any backstab (especially with the `unnoticed' part) would ignore shields generally - shields are for blocking, and it's hard to block somebody you don't even know is there.  On the other hand, it's more to think about, and that gets irritating, especially in basic D&D which is supposed to be a little bit more, you know, on the `basic' side of things...so speaking as a Thief, I'll affirm that I wouldn't be upset if this wasn't always factored in.  (Maybe they happened to drop their arm at the right moment, or something, right?)

But I would point out that the thief might have some trouble counting as "unnoticed" by a retreating enemy.  People are usually pretty aware of whatever they're running away - er, strategically retreating from.  Even admitting that they're also pretty specifically not looking that way...unless the thief was able to really stay out of the fight up until the retreat began (in which case, I'd say people might well be unaware of them, and certainly unaware of them as combatants), I'd require a successful Move Silently check to get up behind one unnoticed.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Well, depending on the circumstances, I could make an argument for Hide in Shadows - either in addition to OR instead of Move Silently. 

Combat is usually very noisy and most people who survive etheir first one or two combat episodes are very aware of what is going on around them... the ones that don't are usually dead or greivously wounded.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
By the letter of the rule, if I understand basic D&D, you only remove the shield bonus to AC for an opponent when attacking them from behind under normal circumstances. As to stacking, I see no reason to think they do not in the case of a thief vs. a foe in full retreat if the “unnoticed“ criteria is met as well.

Labyrinth Lord is my source.

Old edition rule sets are notorious for not covering everything and leaving things to GM judgment. I am thinking outside the box in game during the current round and will be happy with what ever you rule as I trust you to look after the fun, long term and short.

According to what's already above, I'd say a 'standard' attack from behind just avoids the shield.  The person isn't fleeing, so the add'l +2 wouldn't apply.

*Infithe is speaking in code or calling me a donkey… She is not feeling creative enough to do both.  O.O *Nods*

When you highlight the asterisks and dotted line with your mouse cursor, the characters form the image of an animal, like a donkey standing on its tail. Start highlighting with the blank line above the first row of asterisks and it even has ears. Tail is the last two blank lines before the simile.

This isn’t part of the conspiracy.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
As if the reason I hit you is for not posting!  *whap*

Ah, anyway, as it's come up now, I've posted some rules in the House Rules thread for unarmed/non-lethal combat.

Essentially, Basic has no rules concerning this, and Expert reads only, "Characters who engage in combat without a weapon (for whatever reason) inflict 1 point of damage per hit, plus any strength adjustments.  A normal Hit roll is used. All standard combat rules also apply."

The new rules are pulled from the later Rules Cyclopedia, and while sort of long, they are pretty simple, really.  A quick summary:

    All character classes and levels of characters may use striking and wrestling techniques.  In unarmed combat, the attacker either strikes an opponent (with a fist, kick, &c.), or tries to grab an opponent (jump on, tackle, &c.).  Thus, we use two systems: One for striking, including all unarmed blows, and one for wrestling, for all other forms of unarmed combat.

    These striking and wrestling rules refer only to unarmed combat.  If a character attacks another with a weapon, even a weapon of opportunity (mugs, tables, chairs, &c.), this is armed combat and follows normal combat rules.  (Weapons of opportunity are treated as clubs, generally with a -1 to -4 penalty "to hit" based on how clumsy the weapon is in the opinion of the DM.)


I think that helps keep it simple for us -- any armed attack does armed combat damage, while fists, feet, &c. can do striking damage.  Any attempt to tackle, overbear, flatten, and so on comes under Wrestling.

If you look them over and have questions as to how they apply to your attack, just PM me.

I'm sorry...it's Orken's fault.  He keeps us all so busy here in OOC, we hardly have any time for the actual game.

psst! Infithe!  I say we make a big show of reading over these new Wrestling rules, find ourselves a nice big mud-puddle, and start selling tickets!

Then, when everyone's bought theirs, we'll trip Orken and Quan into the puddle for the show, while we fly to Tahiti on the ticket sales.

What do you think?

(I think it could work.  Orken has, like, three and a half editions between him and any kind of dwarven resistance to tripping.)

Good idea, Tan - as long as my dear brother does not freak out when he, like everyone else, thinks it is us that will wrestle...

But would it not be better to use a flying carpet than a ticket?  The former are usually a bit larger and easier to sit on...  Plus, no risk for nasty paper cuts!

Nothing like an innocuous drop or two from the ophthalmologist to bring even a dwarf down to mere mortality!  They only take a few hours to wear off... and we need to get our shots in now because attacking the defenseless is the best way to keep in practice for when they're not so defenseless!

While the unarmed combat system does look like it could be interesting, and fun, I don't think Ildrulf will be making much use of it.

Frankly he has waaaay too much trouble hurting things, when he's armed, to see much point in attacking without a pointy piece of steel in his hand.

That's really too bad.  It takes a while to find good groups like this one.

I'm GMing 4 games here.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
I'll rub salt in your wounds too, Orken, but only to show I'm not biased against elves (even if some of them are perverted voyeurs)...

I'm currently running 7 games:

1 is over 6 years old (and was started at another site, before I came to RPoL)*.
1 is 5 1/2 years old.
2 are about 2 1/2 years old.
1 is 2 years old.
1 is a year old.
1 is about 10 months old.

(*  By coincidence, I just killed off an elf in this game, and killed the only dwarf last year.)

However, for every game I currently have running, there is another which died in the first few months.  So, about a 50% failure rate.  :(

I always advertise in games I'm a member of first.  To me it makes sense - if I was starting a tabletop game, I would ask friends first, before I started recruiting random strangers.

I only play in two games, this one, and another one which is 1 year old.

No it aint! No body picks on me elf but me! *Grrrrr!*

I GM’d a game on another site but I have decided to bring it to an end after a year and half due to personal issues in life that got the better of me. After a month vacation who knows what I’ll do. All six players that joined stuck with it, enjoyed it, and don‘t want me too. But I’d rather do that than let the fun had be tainted and see it fade out when my attention and desire is elsewhere.

I have to call it a success as they actually went some where and accomplished things.

I've done a few multi-year games online. I've been a GM so long and much I think I suck as a player now. :o) I've been lucky with a lower failure (30% or 2 of 6) rate but I haven't tried to do quite as many games as you Ildrulf.

I am not sure longevity is a great measure of success by itself. Not every game idea needs a ten year run... :o) But it is a nice bit. I think my longest game went call it four years.

It's your fault too... :oP

Coming back in leaning on Lendor's shoulder and laughing

Oh...Orken?

quickly brushing confetti out of hair pst! Lendor!  Hide the champaign!

I don't know what you're talking about, Orken.  Nobody's having any parties without you, and if we did, I certainly wouldn't be dancing with anybody.  Even if I'm forced to admit that Quanfinigon is remarkably better at the waltz than I would have expected, and, Lendor, I had a wonderful time, call me, 'k?

Um, where was I?  Oh, right - you're just being paranoid again.  Those smiley-face codes were in absolutely no way our secret means of planning out an elaborate week-long gala and leaving you and only you out of it.  I'm sure Infithe will back me up here when Ildrulf is done throwing up in the bushes and she has him cleaned up a bit.  O;-)

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Signs of the Conspiracy 2

1) The mistress and Infithe grew quiet at the same time. This occurred when the dwarf was tossed in a hole and nobody talked to him… They are in cahoots!

2) Ildrulf is held subservient to Infithe by means of chemicals baked into fresh bread. Side effects leave him ill for health insurance claims and out of the house in the bushes…

3) Quanfinigon Waltz … Nobody does that Waltz in this day and age and he always posts at night somewhere in the world and he talks funny too! He’s a traveling vampire!

4) Infithe… Infernal? Starts looking for a demonology web page to research her. I mean we all know she is evil!

5) Tanindara spent time with Lendor (the quiet.) People always disappear when he is quiet. She took out a hit on somebody and wants a call when it is done! But who?

Or maybe he is her “Kincaid - Hawaii” thing? O.O

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
I hope you are well and that everything is alright in your life and family Ms DM... You’ve been missed.

Monte Cook - Co-Designer of D20: http://www.montecook.com/cgi-bin/page.cgi?montewho

As his last game rule system book project, he was offered the opportunity to re-write White Wolf’s World of Darkness (Vampire, Mage, Were-Wolf, et al) to his own vision.

It gets rid of the mellow dramatic angst, overblown history metagame, and whiny peer on peer social power politicking, in favor of genuine adventure and investigation in a WOD type setting.

He did it in one self contained 385 page hard back book to boot:  http://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/13/13404.phtml

The term post apocalyptic is overblown. I never thought I’d like a D20 game but surprise…Frankly, the magic (non Vancian) and powers system is a wonderful thing.

I had been considering putting together a game of it for play here at RPOL while I try to recover my health as they won‘t let me do much else.

I wondered if there were web handouts or resources for the game that covered rotes and component uses for spells in particular. I figure I will have to rely on pre-made character templates as things stand but the magic system might make it impractical for easy instruction. It’s not complex, its just a lot of detail to type up.

I knew the name sounded familiar for some reason. :-)

Sorry to say, though, I don't know anything about the materials you need.  If you do find them, though, I'm sure Jhael would like some links so she can put them up in the Heaven forum.

Anyway, everyone should have updates now.  If they make little sense well, that's just the pseudoephedrine talking.  I'm back now, but I brought one heck of a cold with me -- and my guy, who was travelling somewhere else the same week also brought home a different cold, and I seem to be incubating both.  Apart from pools and pools of snot, though, I seem to be mostly okay. ;-)

So? I like women that want to be taken home, tied up, and *hosed.* What’s wrong with that? Water bondage is neat. At least I am cool enough to have fetishes unlike some people I know… *Nods at little Ms Nose up in the Air*

You are getting to be just like Infithe, always running around asking into my sex life. O.o

Now, you’ll be alright with Ildrulf as a meat shield (so long as you make him lead with his head.) He's a big guy (blockish) that can protect you.

Hehe...water bondage.  I'm totally giving that fetish to my next vampire character.

(Well, if I ever run a vampire again; it's not my favorite genre.  Maybe you should use it for one of your pre-gens...except I don't think they're bound by running water in WoD, are they?)

Lendor:
I just hope we find something interesting now, once the current occupant is taken care of.

I think the current occupant has turned out to be quite interesting enough.  Maybe if we all learned to specify "something profitable" in these requests, we wouldn't be in so much trouble...hehe...

Oh, and apparently I actually hit the thing, so...statistically speaking, don't count on any more help from me this fight...hehe...
