Re: How do YOU Double damage

Copy that. For me, i go with (in that septum's case) roll the d6 twice (or roll 2 of them), add in +2 (from the +1 doubled) of the weapon, then +4 (the magical bonus doubled), +1 (str)..

Re: How do YOU Double damage

Well in 1/2e you see it quite a bit. Just using the 1e phb as a rundown, we've got Horseman's flail (d4+1/d4+1) footman's flail (d6+1/2d4), Hammers (d4+1/d4), Lance medium (d6+1/2d6), Lance heavy 2d4+1/3d6), Footman's mace (d6+1/d6), Morning stars (2d4/d6+1), Partisans (includes bohemian ear spoons ...

Re: How do YOU Double damage

If the weapon itself (like broad swords/morning stars) does d6+1/d4+1, do you double the +?

Re: How do YOU Double damage

I don't recall what RAW was on the treatment of damage bonuses in 2nd ed, but these days mostly playing 5e, I only double the dice, not the pluses. When doubling the dice, I roll twice as many dice rather than multiplying the result of a single roll. It gives a nicer spread (bell curve) of results,...

How do YOU Double damage

Whether from certain magical weapons, backstabs, charges, etc, there are instances in game where someone needs to double (or even triple/x4/x5) his damage. A) Do you add in all bonuses before doubling, or like with many of the magical weapons specifying 'double, do you double the WEAPON damage, then...

Re: Paladins and 'one on one' challenges?

When i initially thought this question up, i was more in thinking, that after a severe beatdown on several of the PC's, the paladin might make the challenge TO the BBEG LE guy, as a means to try and save them..

Re: Precisely which parts of the adventure do you play?

Since i run a sandbox like campaign world, there's no real 'set adventures'. Ergo i RP the trip there, AND back from where ever they go.

Re: Think of the poor PCs!

I'm trying to arrange an interview on FOX news to talk about school shootings when these little snot nosed punks are on talking about banning guns, because I want to hit them with the fact that over 4,000 teens die every year from texting while driving, and so I want to ban their cell phones! :twis...

Crushing blow saves??

Over on DF, we have a thread about giants hiting, and whether armor/shields thus should be required to save vs crushing blow or not. Cause otherwise, the only time a CB save would get called for is the rare occasions someone smashes an item lying there WHILE under the effect of a giant str potion or...

Re: Messing up a spell, do you change it later?

What i am gonna do, is explain things on the 'curse' side, and ask the players what they would rather.. Keep things as is so both sides get the save (as we've played it) or go to the BTB method, no side gets the save. BUT I am gonna switch command back to BTB, where it won't work on undead.. Though ...

Messing up a spell, do you change it later?

Over on DF, i mentioned in one of the many threads there, i've recently realized i've been running 2 spells wrong. So how would YOU handle the situation.. Do you tell the pcs "i screwed up. This is how the spell should be handled, and its going to be that way from here on out?" Do you tell...
