"Blind, Drunk, Burning, Reach, Flanking.." Que the next rules thread debate. :-)

I've seen that Adv cancels Dis, but I have a 2d Adv type thing come up on Matt Mercer's game Critical Role. So even though it seems like it'll make things simpler (and it certainly does seem to do that in the 5E game engine) at higher levels it can still start to create almost an endless "do loop".

The way it worked was if you're blind, you have disadvantage on attack rolls; if you're drunk, you have disadvantage on all d20 rolls and 1d6 damage resistance whenever you took it; if you're on fire, you take 1d6 fire damage/round (possibly negated by the damage resistance for being drunk, and yes, that's how it worked in the playtests, and anyone who melee attacks you takes 1d6 fire damage; having a reach weapon gave you disadvantage on attack rolls against adjacent opponents; and flanking an opponent gave you advantage on the attack roll. So you ultimately roll 1d20 to attack.

Not surprisingly, this was dealt with in the next batch of playtests. (I think that was the playtest round that said "You know, rogues don't really need Sneak Attack..." The next round came four days later and was pretty much "We were wrong!" Then again, playtest Sneak Attack was extremely lethal.)

Liberty's Edge

Mathematically, it's sound; I think it worked out to +/- 2.5.

Otherwise, it's up to you. Just remember if you do add advantage/disadvantage that if you have advantage and disadvantage on the same roll, you ultimately roll 1d20.

(Mechanically, somebody figured out during the Fifth Edition playtest that the best fighter is a blind drunk guy who was on fire, using a polearm, and flanking an opponent.)

(The Horrifying Injury Table in Warhammer 40k RPGs)

I remember that in Rogue Trader; my favorite is "The laspistol melts your head; roll 1d10 and that's your new Fellowship score. If your Fellowship score is 10 or less, nothing happens (your companions can't tell the difference.)"

  • "Who's your favorite Firefly character?! Because mine's Wash!"

    Something I've said quite a few times when I roll a wash in our group's Vampire the Masquerade chronicle. (Clarification: My actual favorite is Jayne.)

  • "Who's your favorite Renaissance painter?! Because mine's Hieronymus BOTCH!"

    ...I've said this too for botching. Keep in mind, my Vampire character is an eleven foot tall half-ton Gargoyle with Strength 4, Protean 2 equivalent, and Potence 5, so when he screws up, people *die.*

  • "Oops! You bought peach rings!"

    From a really weird video one of our friends showed us before a game. We use this from time to time when someone rolls poorly. ("Okay, initiatives. Sir Geoffrey Longsword got 17, MageBot 3000 got a 12, Sir Runsa Lott got a 15, Urist McDorf got a 13 somehow, and the bad guys bought the peach rings. You go first.")

  • "Oh, undead suddenly pop up out of nowhere."

    From a poorly-thought-out game of Expedition to Castle Ravenloft, where the DM said right before a combat with undead that "Undead don't just pop up out of nowhere." We use this when we fight undead.

  • "d6 rounds to win."

    From our Legacy of Fire game that the same DM clearly didn't read the encounter. (He was playing for us to lose.) Guess what we say when we fight final bosses now.

  • "Grils," "kobloid," "aclove," "dinghy shack," "gravy and shift."

    One other DM runs great games, but some of the Pathfinder Society modules he ran for us had some badly-edited flavor text he read as it was printed (as above.) Except for "kobloid;" he legit thought that's how you say "kobold."

  • "The Dripping Wench Tavern"

    We needed the name of a bar, Cityscape had a table to roll off of to get a tavern name. This was the result. Guess what has franchises all over our campaign setting? (Not this place, thank Armok.)

  • "AmmmMMMMMMMMMMMMMMericaaaaaaaaaaaan BRONson!"

    An NPC in our Vampire game. Think Teddy Roosevelt if he were the only Tremere on the planet who didn't have a single dot of Thaumaturgy.

    please explain the caster/martial disparity

    Casters are really, really good at doing one thing, as are martials. Problem is, the martials' one thing is "apply sharp end of katana to monster," and the casters' one thing is "bend and/or break the laws of the universe across my face."

    In my observations:

    One player almost exclusively plays women with rather... fanservicey character pictures.[1]

    A second player likes playing monks when able.

    My best friend tends to play younger characters.

    As for myself, I lean towards "extremely violent sociopaths."

    Interestingly, the characters my best friend and I play usually wind up becoming very good friends (Curse of the Crimson Throne, Legacy of Fire when my character isn't wandering out into the desert to die-- long story, Carrion Crown) or, in the case of Iron Gods, eventually married and had a child (despite the DM for that saying we all died in a thermonuclear explosion.)

    [1]Thankfully, I haven't had to threaten to run HoL; there's a rule in that game that specifically says your character must be male "because no woman has ever been unlucky or stupid enough to wind up here."

    So, about the alchemist achievement I called "How Breaking Bad Should Have Ended," that's because Breaking Bad didn't end with Walter White dying in a colossal meth lab explosion like I was expecting. I was a little disappointed.

    Also, I named a couple achievements after Phantasy Star Quadrilogy stuff and I'm surprised nobody got the references. ;_;

    This threw me for a loop when I ran Jade Regent for my friends; one group of ninjas in (I think) Book Five are armed with katanas, and breaking down their stat block suggests that they're using Weapon Finesse.

    Fun Tidbit: Katanas were in the original Fifth Edition playtests, and they were basically a longsword you could finesse with. (Then the katanas got removed and they put a note in the book saying "If you want a katana, pay for a longsword and write 'Katana' in the blank instead.")

    The Mortar and Pestle

    Owner: Amelia Kaleka, female human alchemist. (The Amy the Alchemist who wanders around the message boards, actually.)

    Description: The simple wooden sign hanging above the building's door bears a stylized carving of a mortar and pestle. The shop's front wall is thicker than normal, perhaps in an effort to prevent the odors within from drifting down Tower Street. As for the inside, potions and flasks of all kinds line the shelves, while a well-stocked marble workbench bears the tools of the alchemist's trade: a mortar and pestle, a charcoal brazier, a set of crucibles, small bowls, spoons, and mixing rods.

    Sells: Amy primarily sells everything in the Alchemical Remedies section of Ultimate Equipment. She can make the following alchemical tools/weapons on request: alchemical glue, alchemical glue accelerant, alchemical solvent, blackfire clay, bloodblock, casting plaster, nushadir, smokesticks, sunrods, tindertwigs, acid, alchemist's fire, alkali flasks, bottled lightning, fuse grenades, liquid ice, pellet grenades, tanglefoot bags, and thunderstones. (Try to steal from her, and she'll show you what bomb-related alchemist discoveries she knows!)

    Sales Pitch: Your wizard's going to run out of spells someday!

    Anyone can kick.

    Monks and brawlers are just better at it.

    Incidentally, for some reason you needed one free hand to kick (or elbow, or headbutt, or shoulder-bash, or knee, or hip-check) an opponent in Fourth Edition. No reason was ever given why.

    I recall some gamemaster guide (Unofficial) said you had 2xCon+1 till you're... sickened I think (can't recall if there was a save). Which makes sense. A Barb with base 20 con who then rages shouldn't have to worry about getting sick until they've had a looooot of drank. Meanwhile a wizard Elf likely isn't as... hardy and shouldn't be able to firm more than a few before they feel strong affects.

    Hell, the Fast Drinker feat requires 18 Con. Seems like Con would serve as some sort of limiter. Also, Fast Drinker is ridiculous. You're drinking a standard action's with of booze (A tankard as per the Drunkern Master) in the same about of time, with the same amount of effort, as it takes to drop that very bottle. And then you can still drink as a standard!! Best feat ever.

    The best alcohol feat is Carouser from d20 Conan. You gain a +2 bonus on Bluff and Gather Information checks related to your drinking companions after two hours of heavy drinking, and you never suffer any penalties for being drunk no matter how much you drink. (Oh, and you are considered to have had a full night's rest after a night of drinking and wenching.)

    2. Sickbay

    The doors leading into this room are frosted glass etched with a stylized caduceus. Inside are eight beds, each attached to a sensor array made to monitor vital functions. A large operating theater is off to the left behind two heavy airlock doors, while the chief medical officer's office is behind a partition to the right. Lockers containing basic medical supplies sit between each bio bed, and the room is arranged so that the attending physician can see all eight beds at once. The smell of antiseptic hangs in the air.

    I do see the value of static saves (or at least 10 + character level + appropriate stat + class bonus) as a Saga Edition fan, but I gotta admit it's a little more fair for the player to roll his own saves.

    Right here is what I have so far of a class called the dark knight (not Batman.)

    This was inspired by the Dark Knight character class from Final Fantasy IV and X-2. The whole idea of the class is that it's supposed to be a more martial kineticist/more reliable source of negative energy damage. I think I botched it pretty badly, which is why the document's open for commenting.

    WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE:
    [*[Class skills, which I forgot to add in because I'm stupid.

  • Thinking up something for a dark knight to get at fifth and fifteenth levels.
  • More Dark Arts abilities, possibly gating some behind levels and/or earlier-attained arts. I'm not good at these.

    Please, Mark, tell me that DM didn't make a character with 4 Dex be an archer.

    Please. I'm begging you.

    Liberty's Edge

    "All right, let's see your character sheet, Greg... oh. Look at that. Five 18s and 20 Strength. But that's okay because Amy signed off on that! Now, let's see Amy's cleric... whaddyaknow. 20 Wisdom and 18s across the board, but it's kosher because Greg saw you roll your stats!"

    "Urist, that's not a beer stein. That's a giant chess rook you poured beer into."

    *WHACK!!*

    "All right, it's a beer stein. I'm sure my friend will say so once he regains consciousness."

    Barry the Barbarian: All right, everyone! Time to go kill some gods! Who's with me!?

    Waldo the Warpriest: Yeaahhhhhhh~!

    Archie the Arcanist: Me too!

    Ingrid the Inquisitor: As am I!

    (title card: ONE ROUND OF EXTREMELY ONE-SIDED COMBAT LATER)

    Waldo: (exploded like a meat balloon inside his full plate; his full plate has been fused into one solid piece)

    Archie's Boots: (covered in the ashes of what used to be an arcanist)

    Vaguely Human-Shaped Scorch Mark: (Barry's greataxe is right next to it)

    Ingrid the Inquisitor: (has been shipped off by the war god for an eternity of soul-sucking AGONY in the seventh circle of the only place worse than Hell: Staten Island.)

    Confirmed. The Pathfinder Society leadership does not intend to introduce paladins of Asmodeus at this time.

    Amend that to "at this or any other time"! D: D: D:

    Just like the fighter has to tell me where they stand, who they attack, and with what weapon. They can't just say, "I roll an attack."

    Hmm. Does "That ugly-looking guy who's been beating me with his club for the past two rounds, I hoist my greatsword and attempt to shove it through his face all the way up to the crossguard with Power Attack" suffice? =p
