That thread is among the stickiest on this or any other forum...

Anything dry enough, salty enough, or sugary enough keeps virtually forever. Jam opened and then left for a decade in the fridge will most likely be perfectly fine. The only way to get something to keep even longer is to remove all oxygen from it. Tin cans and bog corpses both function along that principle. But if you DO get a little air in, the environment will become anaerobic, opening the door to infection by various anaerobic bacteria. Of these, clostridium botulinum is the best-known. It has a poison, among the strongest poisons known to man, that causes paralysis. Of course, this poison is what people inject in their foreheads to look younger, botox.

Make it cool to play a cleric. Show them awesome clerics. Let them fight some of them, see others in action. Give an extra skill point or two if needed. Make the divine parts of the world present in various ways. Make temples important actors.

The problem with playing a cleric is twofold: That everyone expects you to be their healbot, and that you have a massive number of spells on your spell list and need to choose among them, i.e. learn about all of them.

So, if someone starts a cleric character, support them in playing the way they want to. Make it clear that a cleric is far, far more than the healbot it used to be in earlier editions.

Direct the player to a suggested pool of spells for his concept, if you can.

A really tired kid will often be hyperactive. Thus, when you give a tired non-hyperactive kid sugar, it will get a short term blood sugar increase that will help it function and not be as tired. However, sugar passes, and by that point the kid will be tired and maybe hyperactive. This has nothing to do with a sugar buzz. Caffeine, now...

There was a MtG card that had a beautiful take on this: Reparations. The flavour text was "Sorry I burned down your village. Here's some gold."

To clarify, not all the above movies are examples of awful movies. I do like all the first three, f.ex. Aliens is awesome.

Revenge of the nerds
Romancing the stone
Crocodile Dundee
A bajillion stupid college movies

That is not the problem. The problem is that if you look to actually good movies from the nineties and call them eighties' movies, there are so many awful eighties' movies you don't inflict on the poor guy. :-)

When someone falls in the movies, it doesn't happen after casting the fifty-third protection from good spell. Let's take an example:

Judge Claude Frollo of the Disney movie Hunchback of Notre Dame: He is far from a pleasant man from the start. He despises gypsies, indeed he sees society as at war with them. When faced with Quasimodo, he first intends to have him killed due to his deformity, but realizes he would damn himself if he did. If he did, there would be no way back. Even in his shriveled soul, there is enough good (or maybe fear of the tortures of Hell) to force him to save the child.

However, years later he meets Esmeralda. And he must have her. In the face of this need, he chooses to set fire to the city (IIRC), knowing full well the consequences of doing so for his immortal soul. The act he finally fell for was monstrous, not some little piddling thing.

Otherwise put: Everyone eventually gets one final warning, and yet they choose to ignore it.

However, I would say having lesser evil acts be routine is perfectly sufficient to make you Evil.

Obviously, a dwarf/elf hybrid is: a human. All the height and femininity and mystery of the elves, and the height, raging masculinity and groundedness of the dwarves.

Of course not. If it did, I would have huge amounts of favourites on my posts. HUGE, I tell you.

They really are wonderful. Having played part of tGMM, there is one thing you need to determine beforehand. As written, the size of the modron march really is not as big as described. Either boost their numbers, which is not likely to cause troubles for you, or change the descriptions. Also, when you get to the visages in DG, be careful with their powers. It is exactly the kind of thing players hate. Find a way to define those powers better, would be my suggestion.

Oh, and one more thing to look out for: Sadly, a majority of the PS adventures run off the "three dreams" concept, including the Into the Light subadventure. It... Can get a bit old, despite the Rule of Three.

Why won't you answer any questions in this thread? I know you said "any questions", but are there specific answer you will answer in this thread? Will you put your answers to questions in this thread in some other thread?

Just give me an answer or two and I won't pester you amy more...

Where's the Tzimisce People's Front?

The unbeatable encounter is in FoF, actually. And agreed, the 3.0 modules were brilliant. Sadly, they had a bad decision resulting in a singular focus on only rules books, not adventures, meaning the first eight modules is really all there is. 3.5 added a few more toward the end of the run of third edition.

Good thing they have a sword of killing Hitler for that.

There is also the little matter of all of his brood not being all that brainy... Poor Xotani the Firebleeder, you can't imagine the earfuls it gets from dad after accidentally setting entire regions on fire. It was just catching some sleep, dammit!!!

3.0 and 3.5 are rather different beasts.

3.0 is far more quirky, less balanced, with content for it far less streamlined and "samey". 3.5 is far more polished, there is more for it, and I suppose it is easier to learn since more rules are similar.

However: 3.0 is the work of art. 3.5 is a derivative knock-off. Many of the things in 3.0 that were based on somewhat counterintuitive considerations, but added quality, were removed in 3.5. A good example is the lack of X minute spell durations, removed because those urged players to "keep the buffs up for another fight" and run into the next battle. As stated above, going back to 2nd edition is painful after 3.X.

That said... both are showing their age today. PF is in some ways a better system, but above all, it's still "alive".

Oh, and Aaron, get back into the cockpit and play 3.0 with your son. Trust me, it will be worth it.

Exactly. And if the five dollars correspond to a cost, that is only for DRMing it. Simply put: It is the entire difference. It may be that it is only greed and doesn't correspond to a cost, of course.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Why would it? If we aren't talking about audio books, the difference between a paper book template and an e-book is the amount of copy protection and other DRM crap they put into the e-book, isn't it? That doesn't exactly add consumer value...


3 people marked this as a favorite.

A large part of the price of buying a book is because of printing costs. With e-books, they don't have that whatsoever. It quite literally costs them mere cents (if that) to make another copy of the e-book. Yet they charge you MORE than for a physical book. That is simply indecent.

Lutfisk is an... acquired taste. As in, really acquired. The stuff you eat it with, diced boiled eggs, potatoes, white sauce and black pepper, are great to eat, even better than the lutfisk itself. So, not my favourite.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I like Tabasco... it is tasty and great with food. It just isn't very strong. It won't get you to even smoke through your ears. =)

How do you feel about Hoi sin sauce?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Jeez, people... don't you do strong food over there in Aerica? Tabasco is more like medium gentle on the hotness scale. They do have versions (Habanero comes to mind) that up this, but on the whole, it is fine to drench food with. Not kidding you.

As for the apostrophe in tanar'ri, I am not sure how you'd tell the difference between tuh-NAR-ee and tuh-NAR-ree.

Tony "The Transcendant One" Jay gave us a nice pronunciation of it in Planescape: Torment.

For the sake of argument, of course, one could suggest that the apostrophe indicates a pronunciation of "tuh-nar-REE."

I am sure he did, but it has been a while. :-)

I started with VII. My favourite is (and I know I am pretty much alone in this) VIII.

Ixitxachitl actually had an official pronunciation guide. Iks-it-ZACH-it-ul, IIRC.

No. It's just that... some activities really are better with two.

I never claimed the players should not be informed. I have repeatedly said they should. I even added that if the change removed certain things (condition damage), that should be accounted for. That is not an issue.

What is the issue is that, by your comments about whims above, you still seem to think changing things makes for a worse game. I see it as variety.
