I dunno, I still think Reynolds the wrong person to play Hal Jordan. I'm not sure I know who the right person is, but I loved Reynolds as Wade Wilson, and didn't care about him as Hal.

I'm still amazed at how badly Green Lantern failed. I mean, if you asked me before I saw it how it would be possible to make a movie about space cops boring, I'd be hard pressed to answer. They gave me that answer in 2+ hours.

That said, I loved that they set up Sinestro as the big bad for the sequel that will never come, and even made sure to make him a southpaw! I also loved the fact that Carol wasn't even fooled for a minute that Hal is the Lantern, calling into question the whole reason for a secret identity. Still...any scene where Hal and Hector are on screen at the same time is poorly paced, and there aren't enough facepalms in the galaxy to apply to the phrase "hard light Hot Wheels track."

Some haunts are persistent, and their immediate effects continue beyond the surprise round into actual full rounds. Persistent haunts continue to trigger their haunt effects once per round on their initiative rank until destroyed or they no longer have a target. All primary effects created by a haunt are mind-affecting fear effects, even those that actually produce physical effects. Immunity to fear grants immunity to a haunt’s direct effects, but not to secondary effects that arise as a result of the haunt’s attack.

So, looking at the Dance of Ruin, if a paladin was targeted by it, they would be immune to it. The direct effect is dance for 1d6 rounds, taking 1 Strength damage each round. As for what they see, I'd still describe it to them, but they don't actually have to make the roll. They feel the haunt's urging, but their god protects them from the negative effects.

I think it's kinda similar to how Marvel could make a Spaceknights movie if they really wanted to, but they wouldn't be able to include ROM in it if they did. Rights are weird.

Nice version of Nualia (and similar to what I did with her too).

One minor detail: Cat's Grace is not on the Cleric spell list. Best to turn that into a potion that she has on hand, and pick another spell in its place.

Her Linguistics check is too high - it should be +1. (In case anyone were to care, ever.) As for cat's grace, it's on her prepped spell list in her original version, so I decided to stick with it - it's a special gift from Lamashtu or something, apparently. YMMV.

This is the Internet, Shisumo. Someone will check your numbers and find them wanting eventually.

When people have historically been excluded from a medium, then yes, it is important to note that part of their identity when they're included. It doesn't really solve the representation problem when, in a medium in which the heroes have almost always been straight white cis men, to have Jacob the bartender and never indicate that he's gay, or black, or trans, or whatever.

Part of the point of inclusivity is letting people other than straight white guys see themselves in fiction. That doesn't really happen if the only people who know that a character is black or gay or trans are the writers.

Race is part of a visual description, however, and I was using that analogy in the context of a movie or other visual medium; sexual orientation is generally not, and it isn't always with gender identity, either.

Why would him being gay ever come up? I mean, it's fine if it does, he could off-handedly mention his boyfriend or husband, obviously, but when someone from some sort of minority or other generally-excluded group is represented as specifically an example of that group rather than as a person in general who belongs to that group, then it doesn't really fix the real problem. There can be indications or outright statements, but they have to make sense in context.

Yes, race is immediately visible, but it's a part of who Character X is, just as much as their sexual preference and gender identity. Since the baseline assumption for any given character is "heterosexual and cisgendered," it's important to have characters that are specifically not that. Like Jessica and James said, it's on the industry to be inclusive, and on us as fans to let them know when we see an opportunity to do better at inclusivity. For example, the first issue of the AP line included a homosexual male couple for this very reason. It took six more issues before we saw the first canonical homosexual female couple - though that one was problematic for people. It took quite some time before we had a trans woman character with a name, and almost a hundred issues before we have a trans man.

Equality comes in inches.

To be fair, I'm not certain much of anything would work against that party, short of a tactical nuclear strike.

I dunno, when you name the AP Giantslayer, the odds of someone choosing to play a dwarven martial of some flavor begins to approach 100%, so a preponderance of warhammers doesn't seem like a bad thing. Still, RuyanVe's right. If you're outside the norm, change the loot. Or don't. Up to you.

True that, Captain. I make a mean spiced angel food cake that I call "chai cake," that uses a scant eighth of a teaspoon of freshly ground clove across the entirety of a cake. (For those of you across the pond, that's a TINY amount.) If I dared use any more, you wouldn't be able to taste the other two spices (mace and allspice), even though the recipe uses twice the amount of each of those!

Still, when I drink chai, I prefer a strongly spiced version. When I managed the cafe at my Borders, we had a spiced chai which was head and shoulders above the regular stuff. It was definitely strong with the clove.

Finished my English Breakfast today, and the iced tea is almost gone. Looks like I'll be getting more soon!

Yeah, I figured it was less to do with the tea and more to do with the empty stomach. I occasionally have the same thing happen to me with coffee, though not usually as fast. No idea why.

I used filtered for about half of it, and had to grab the rest from the tap. I'll try using 100% filtered on my next batch.

As for IBT being too "in-your-face," well...I thought English was going to be stronger, and as someone who drinks their coffee black, I'm pretty sure I can handle IBT. I'll just have to make sure that I've had a snack before I start drinking it.

The issue is that Bodyguard is giving you a way to use your Attacks of Opportunity on actions that don't normally trigger the use of AoOs. In this case, you're giving up options to attack targets later in the round in order to help one of your allies avoid an attack. Obviously, attacking someone with a weapon doesn't normally provoke an AoO, and Bodyguard is very careful to suggest that it doesn't. It still counts against your limit of 1+Dex modifier AoOs per round, though.

The question really should be stated as "does the use of attacks of opportunity granted by the Bodyguard feat count as 'provoked' attacks of opportunity, like casting in melee combat or moving through a threatened area?" That would solve the underlying question, as everything else uses standard game terminology that I believe we all agree upon.

Iced tea report: it came out cloudy. Not sure why it did that at all, especially since it was clear (well, as clear as tea gets) when I put it in the fridge. Anyway, it tasted like unsweetened tea, and I had to add maybe an eighth of a cup of syrup to take the edge off to my glass. That's about an ounce of sugar water. Unfortunately, the lemon-mint syrup was more like lemon-MINT syrup. Probably need to dial in on that next time. Any ideas on how the tea could have gone cloudy in two days? It tasted just fine, so I'm pretty sure it wasn't spoiled or anything.

Also, I've been having some stomach pain and nausea after drinking my tea without breakfast. This also seems strange, as I wouldn't peg tea as something that would causing gastric issues. Any thoughts on that?

Finally, I'm about out of the English breakfast after making three pots of the stuff over the last three days. Any recommendations on what I should go for next?

As for the return of Farmer Grump, I intend to run the investigation of the Hambley Farm by local farmers as a scene, handing out four 2nd level commoners for the party to play (and to get converted into ghouls) - finishing up the scene with "...Maester Grump tells you of the horrors that occured at the Hambley Farm a few days ago."

That's awesome. I've had a love for alternate perspective one-shots ever since I read Vecna Lives! back in the day. It lets the PCs play characters that either wouldn't be suitable for a long-term game or wouldn't be fun for long, and allows the DM to show what happens when their characters aren't around and also to MERCILESSLY KILL CHARACTERS without causing too much distress to the players.

Manwolf: Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the haunt state that if someone attempts to prevent the person with the suicide compulsion from killing themselves, they attack that person and automatically crits? That's really the thing that makes it fair, IMO.

Case in point - ever wonder why Easter keeps changing the date it's on, but Christmas is always on December 25? That's because they're both originally pagan holidays. Christmas was originally Saturnalia, culminating in the celebration of the Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun (Sol Invictus) on December 25. Easter's, however, is a roaming holiday, keeping time with the phases of the moon, and has its roots in pagan holidays worshiping the spring equinox.

Oh, they do. Irish was definitely a much more in-your-face experience, but I figured it was a bit too forward for a first foray. I may pick that up in the future. I didn't count how many teas they had to choose from, but it was a lot.

And yeah, I know tea doesn't have as much caffeine as coffee. However, from what I've learned, there are chemicals within the tea itself that bond with the caffeine molecule and slowly release the caffeine into the bloodstream. So, while the high you get from tea isn't as high as coffee's, tea's high will stay with you longer. Better living through legal chemistry!

English Breakfast Report: Tasty. Not nearly as assertive as coffee, but definitely hitting a completely different profile of flavors. It's almost a bit smoky, which is nice. Made it in a rather cheap french press, which worked beautifully. I'll probably visit that tea shop again after I work through this batch, because this was quite lovely.

Exactly, Latrecis. I think it's definitely in GM fiat territory, and it makes a cool story, so I'd allow it. Stock four runeslave stone giants in the upper levels, probably two guarding the passage to the Library level, and another two roaming tirelessly. Conveniently, the fifth is finished cooking a round or two after the PCs are finished fighting the stone golem in the cauldron room proper, just so they can see how Mokmurian is doing this to his own people.

If you're feeling really evil, have him bring back either Galenmir or Lokansir with it. I see nothing that suggests the jotenblood and runeslave templates don't stack, and they get to keep all their feats and whatnot. Brutal!

When Conna told my party that the dragons were charmed by the lamias, the abjurer in my party said, "Magically dominated, you say?"

Two rounds after the fight with the dragons started, he had busted the charm on both of them and they both went after the lamias in the next room. The lamias are a crazy difficult duo, by the way. High AC, high HP, high saves, high attack bonuses, high damage due to 15-20 crit range...I really don't see their weak point.

The best part: during the fight, the wizard decides to drop an empowered fireball on the grand melee. The dragons are alright with this. The lamias, less so.

As for the cauldron, all I'm seeing is that the giant needs to be dead. It doesn't really say how long. I suppose it's up to the GM in the end.

I'm more a coffee guy, but I'm actually branching out and trying loose leaf tea. I picked up two ounces each of an English Breakfast and Nilgiri from a local tea shop in town. The English is for hot tea, while the Nilgiri is for iced. I made up the Nilgiri last night - making the lemon-mint simple syrup for the iced tea is on the schedule for either tonight or tomorrow.

This merchant also had a blood orange tea that smelled very citrusy, and would probably be good both iced and hot.

You can see any objects or beings that are invisible within your range of vision, as well as any that are ethereal, as if they were normally visible. Such creatures are visible to you as translucent shapes, allowing you easily to discern the difference between visible, invisible, and ethereal creatures.

The spell does not reveal the method used to obtain invisibility. It does not reveal illusions or enable you to see through opaque objects. It does not reveal creatures who are simply hiding, concealed, or otherwise hard to see.

See invisibility can be made permanent with a permanency spell.

The PRD wrote:


Haunt Rules
Although haunts function like traps, they are difficult to detect since they cannot be easily observed until the round in which they manifest. Detect undead or detect alignment spells of the appropriate type allow an observer a chance to notice a haunt even before it manifests (allowing that character the appropriate check to notice the haunt, but at a –4 penalty).

[Also, some stuff that doesn't apply to detecting a haunt.]

In general, then, I would say see invisibility wouldn't work - they're not just invisible or ethereal, they're a weird class of hazard that can't be easily noticed. Similiarly, they can't be found by detect magic, since there's no magic involved.

Well, keep in mind that Hetuath knows what the PCs are capable of. He's seen them fight through the eyes of his skeletal kesatha minions. When they fought him, he knew the party's barbarian was the real threat, and fought defensively, deflecting his attack and landing with several of his own. After that, his considerable DR at first and second level and abilities were more than enough to defeat the rest of the party.

Yeah, Lokansir seems like a beast. Cinderma might be a good reinforcement if your PCs skipped over her (as mine did), along with one of the hill giant runeslaves, who have been deeper in the dungeons that even Conna.

Longtooth definitely qualifies too, though as written, he's not too happy with Mokmurian either. The sorcerer might have a chance to sway him on their side, for a big enough cut of the treasure!

That's where I am right now, Hippie. I've been giving some thoughts on what needs to be done should (read: when) the party retreats from Jorgenfist to level up and regain spells and abilities. I think it depends on a few factors.

1. According to the setup, Mokmurian is very careful with who he lets into the pit. He's (rightfully) afraid that if they see some of his non-giant associates (the lamias, for instance), or if they discover that his magical powers are self-taught, rather than inherited, they will desert his banner. As a result, he has a very small retinue of trusted stone giants. Plus, the area is taboo to the giants, so many of them would be reluctant to enter in the first place.

2. Who's still available to recruit? Mokmurian rarely leaves the fortress, so that leaves either Galenmir or Lokansir. If both of these have been dealt with, then they will have difficulty in recruiting more stone giants to fill the halls. The giants probably won't respect Enga (despite the fact that she's a freaking 12th level barbarian), Conna has no interest in helping Mokmurian, and the lamia have the same issues as mentioned in point 1. The unnamed giants may have a chance, but I'd think they'd probably defer to the lamias at that point, since they don't have enough clout to order people into the dungeons, nor do they want to risk Mokmurian's fury.

3. Conna. If the PCs were able to secure her aid early, then they have an ally within Jorgenfist itself, and she may be able to hide them somewhere. She may not be able to hinder Mokmurian directly, but that doesn't mean she won't help arrange his downfall.

Of course, it sounds like too many of the baddies went on alert, and that's bad for the party. What's left in your game?

So does that mean you see shades of colors that are indistinguishable to humans? For example, let's say we set two dabs of paint out, one lime green, and one a hair yellower than that, but just barely. If an average human couldn't tell the difference between the two colors, would it be easier for an average elf to say "Oh yes, this is lime green, and this is [insert elven for 'a hair yellowish than lime green' here]."?

I also used Hobart in my campaign, but to a lesser degree. One of my players is playing a Deverin, so I was glad to introduce the elder statesman of the family. He was able to inform them of the political landscape of the city, and basically gave them free reign of the manor.

Spoiler:

However, the Magnimar book states that Hobart is ill, and I played that up on their initial visit. Right before the giant attack, Kendra informed my player that Hobart's taken a turn for the worse, and things don't look good. If he does pass, then someone needs to take over for him in Magnimar, and there have been a few requests thus far for her take over. The only thing that's giving her pause are the Scarnettis. She's concerned (rightly so) that they would be unopposed if she left to take care of things in Magnimar, and undo all the good work the Deverins have done for Sandpoint. She asked him what he thought she should do, and he responded that she see to Magnimar.

Which, of course, means she's going to Magnimar. The Scarnettis might actually not be an issue, based upon the actions of another party member, who challenged Jubrayl Vhiski for leadership of the Sczarni and won. In order to save his skin, Jubrayl played his trump card - let me live, and I'll give you the goods on Titus Scarnetti. They may be able to hamstring the Scarnettis and allow Kendra to take over for the Deverins in Magnimar free of conscience. Time will tell, though.

Yeah, the link between wizard and familiar specifically calls out that the master is just getting general feelings sent back to him, and cannot see through his familiar's eyes. They can eventually do something like that, once they can scry on their familiar once per day, but that's at 13th level. I don't really see anything upon cursory examination that lets a wizard get around this limitation, so if they want to cast spells through their familiar, they need to be able to see the battlefield in some manner. This usually means they need to be on site, but invisibility is definitely an option.
