Defeating the sleep spell.

Over on DF there's a humdinger of a thread currently, going on about "is sleep overpowered', and the discussion morphed into "is it metagaming to allow someone to buy up dozens of piglets, or carry 50+ rats with them, even if not a caster, so all the animals fall asleep first, before their...

Re: How long from time found, to reality??

Elves live upwards of 600 yrs iirc, but even they would still be 5-6 generations removed from when plate was known about.. As for the few encounters with monsters who have them, They've all been FOUND items for those monsters.. Even the bugbears who are known for being armorers (as evidenced by the ...

Re: Cleric vs. Cleric - Party Discord?

bringing this back up with a related question.. Has anyone who made their OWN gods up, ever actually gone through and listed out who/what a priest OF each god, can cast on followers of the other gods? IE: God ABC, is favored to god BBC, but still won't allow his priest to cast more than 5th level sp...

Re: How long from time found, to reality??

Even at 600 yrs old, most living dwarves would be 6-7 generations removed at least from something that was lost over 5000 yrs ago. That said, yes i am thinking it 'being re-discovered', would make for a slightly swifter re-making process, especially with 6 newly found suits in pristine condition.. S...

Re: players leave, and their characters take cool magic...

The current group doesn't really do the 'communal' property on magic.. It stays in party funds, TILL someone claims it, then its yours unless YOU trade it to someone else..

Re: I've had the computer-in-the-shop blues.

That happeneed to me, back in 2015 iirc. My old Win 98 laptop finally crapped out after almost 12 years of owning it.. Had to get one with Win 8.1 on as that's all that was available (Or Win 10)..

Re: players leave, and their characters take cool magic...

Most of the time the player in question just stopped showing up (or let me know they were dropping out and moving away).. So the character often stayed around the party (could be hired as an henchman, or assigned to someone till they rolled their own PCs up), TILL after a while the group as a whole ...

players leave, and their characters take cool magic...

Earlier this week, Thomas, one of my players who does the book=keeping for party treasure made the comment, its a "Pet peeve" of his, when players come into the game, get assigned cool items from party loot, then leave, with their characters taking those items out of the group... How does ...

Re: A Wild Star Wars discussion appeared!

Even still, I liked it better than The Force Awakens - because at least it wasn't a direct rehash of A New Hope. Same here. The reason I liked The Last Jedi so much is it broke the pattern that Star Wars always follows. Rey isn't the chosen one, she's a nobody. Luke isn't a sainted hero, it's a bro...

Re: Metagaming.. What counts?

That all being said, I probably wouldn't have ignored the pudding's ability to split back in the earlier game. The player can now argue that because you ran the monster as not being able to split back then, it should not split now. The CHARACTER'S knowledge tells him that the pudding does not split...

Re: Metagaming.. What counts?

I disagree here, it's definitely not my mistake. I let them know that I toned the first encounter down because of their level but their character's still would have never known that. Meta gaming is meta gaming...they took knowledge from outside the game and applied it to the game as knowledge their...
