Heheh, indeed. :P

Mostly what I was getting at was basically that in real life, if you're hit with a greatsword, you've probably got a gaping hole in your favorite torso, which usually comes with unpleasant side effects such as a rapid loss of blood, or organs falling out of your body. :P

But we gloss over that sort of thing because it's just a fun abstraction (and quite frankly, being an adventurer would just involve never getting hit). In much the same way that arrows, bolts, darts, and similar weapons would likely lodge themselves inside you and cause you to die of infection later (it's my understanding that historically, arrows didn't kill nearly as surely as infected arrow wounds did, mostly because archers frequently stuck their arrows in the ground on battlefields).

I won't say that I don't steal some ideas from reality however. Fighting certain creatures in my campaigns can be more of a hassle than usual, since goblins often intentionally wipe their arrowheads in feces to be little s***s (no pun intended) and cause infections to people they hit with them. Since goblins are often smaller and weaker than the other races they find themselves in conflict with, they'll often use stealth + shortbows to haze foes and large beasts before running away and/or hiding, and wait to thin the ranks over time as people or prey succumb to infections (similar to how komodo dragons bite herd animals and then wait for the infection to ruin them).

Oh, I know, I was mostly being facetious...mostly.

Realism can easily ruin a game if you go too far down that rabbit hole, I guess.
This was related more to a thought of the arrow having punctured your armor, so now every time you move, your armor moves, it gets jostled a bit, and adds further injury, unless you take time to remove it, or get healed.

Yes, more SK please.

Related stuff:

Been considering homebrewing a line of spells called leech light wounds where you deal 1d4+1 per level up to +5, and heal your self the same amount. There would be a leech for every level of cure (moderate, critical, serious, etc.) even up to mass. These would be arcane, necromancy school spells...
This would help out with mimicking the Shadow Knight's life taps, and isn't too far different from existing mechanics...

I've always thought that arrows should do bleed damage until removed (heal check), or you receive magical healing. Like 1 point of bleed, +1 per enhancement bonus of the arrow or bolt.
As it is, it's too easy to ignore being shot.

In your opinion, when does a character's inventory begin and when does it end? Teleport-like spells only work if you are carrying less than maximum load, so if a wizard is carrying a backpack with a big rock(heavier than his maximum load), it won't work. But what if an enemy tied that rock to a net with hooks and threw it at the wizard? He can't very much unentangle himself from the rock, but can he teleport without it?

EDIT: ...Also, why is Tacticslion favouriting every post? Is this a local thing? I wanted to ask this for some time.

he is what we refer to as a "jolly fellow".

Also, Ashiel, I'm definitely more of a kind of player to look into infinite loops, Trippy-verse concepts, and similar.

In races like the Lashunta, this seems to be the case as well.
Men seem to be the warriors, while the females the scientists and such.
I don't remember if they are matriarchal or not, but they don't seem to be misandrists.

This is also true.

It's one of the reasons I didn't list Commando, for example (although, without question, Total Recall fits this, so my standards of mentioning are pretty wonky, I admit).

Commando is so overly-tropey it goes straight into "self-aware" mode of how goofy it is, complete with the "normal" person calling the guys out on their trash-talk. Predator was goofy, but the only "dumb" thing I saw was when Billy decided to go mano-e-mano without the help of the others.

The lines were the best.

They get other benefits, such as faster spell access, and they do get a bonus when their BAB reaches certain values, just like everyone else.

The thing is, this particular bonus is based on how skilled your character is at maximizing their damage with weapon-based attacks. When a high BAB caster casts scorching ray and deals extra damage with it, it's not because he's casting a stronger scorching ray spell than his more sagely peers, it's that he's levering his ability to aim and wield that ray to greater effect.

It's kind of like, anyone can swing a sword, but that doesn't make anyone a swordsman. The same character wouldn't get that bonus damage on spells that aren't skill-related (such as fireball or lightning bolt), but would get that bonus with combat-spells like shocking grasp, chill touch, flame blade, scorching ray, ray of frost, and any other spell that uses attack rolls.

This is kind of cool, I think, because it allows more martially oriented casters to leverage their low-level spells more effectively by being more martially inclined, while full casters receive less bonuses in that regard but get more spells/higher-level spells and have quicker access to spells that don't use attack rolls.

Ahh, yeah that makes sense. I have to remind myself these characters won't be as married to classes as traditional d20.

Blasting has been kind of lagging behind a lot of other spells for a while now. I'd like to bring it up a bit. Rather than just pushing more damage, we'll be seeing blasting spells that have more debuffs, DoTs, or battlefield control elements in addition to simply dealing damage.

He was hella fun, king of damage and battlefield control.

Well, one thing my friend Jay (ArcaneIntellect on the forums, IIRC) has really liked about some of the pre-alpha tabletop demos of some of the mechanics is how BAB and magic can interact.

He was playing a rather martially inclined hybrid character (kind of a bard/cleric/druid thing, but without actually being a druid, more in just he took a bunch of spells typically known for druids like produce flame and flame blade) who primarily existed as a party buffer (bards fawkin' rawkin' at that).

However, he was pleasantly surprised that his "librarian" was actually really good in combat. See, she wasn't very strong but the bonus damage from her +6 BAB applied to anything she was making attack rolls with (including spells), and she got to apply her Dex to hit/damage w/ touch attacks / light weapons. So when she popped flame blade, she would be spinnin' the blade around for surprisingly robust damage, and her little produce flame shots were dealing 1d6+5+2d6 damage.

She and one of the party's two rogues ended up fighting a group of goblins and some elite ogres (ogres w/ levels and some classes, essentially). When one of the ogres came up to her, she declared him her smite target and proceeded to Jedi-duel him with her flame blade and took him out.

The long and short of it is, there are a few new options for building...
