Does the bonus on saves apply to all spell cast by the evil creature.

Example : vampire casts fireball at party. Bonus of no bonus on the reflex save?

Sorry if this issue was adressed previously but this messageboard is getting to be quite big!


FoTR : Drunken Bree farmer outside, eating a carrot
TTT : unconvincing soldier on the walls of Helm's deep, throwing a stone
RoTK : Pirate of Umbar who bites the big one when shot by Legolas' arrow

Saw the Hobbit twice and couldn't spot him? Anyone?


We seldom use metamagic in our group, so this came up in our last game.

Sorcerer uses a selective ice storm. Player claims that selected PC's are not affected by the ice patches AND are not affected by the visibility problems associated within the area : i.e. tha monster is blinded but the PC's are not.

Any thoughts?

This is a post from a critic wannabee concerning
the upcoming hobbit movie on the IMDb website. He posts as Brian _ oo7

Overall, I like "Lord of the Rings." However, I do feel that Tolkien kind of rips off "Harry Potter" in many ways. There are several parallels, such as elves, dwarfs, wizards, goblins, trolls, magic (especially invisibility), etc. Sauron is referred to as “Dark Lord” just like Voldemort is. There is also the elder white-haired bearded wizard who serves almost as a mentor, Gandalf, who is reminiscent of Dumbledore. Some of the character names are similar, such as Wormtongue as opposed to Wormtail, too. There is even a gigantic spider (Shelob) at the end of "The Two Towers" that reminds one of Aragog from "Chamber of Secrets." I even noticed that the plots of both series begin with the protagonists’ birthday. Now I see that Tolkien, this unoriginal bastard, is coming out with "The Hobbit" in December. This would be fine, but why didn't he just write this book first to begin with? I still like "Lord of the Rings," though--don't get me wrong--but I wonder if Tolkien has ever said in interviews whether he borrowed elements from Harry Potter. I’ll be watching the extended DVDs later this week and I think he’s featured on the commentary track, so I look forward to that.
When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading!

After being verablly abused by fellow posters and on his facebook page, he came back with this gem with my added comment in caps throughout 'cuz I don't grasp the bold thingee. Sorry!

Hello everyone, okay admittedly I feel a little stupid (FIRST THING HE SAID THAT MADE SENSE because I accused Tolkien of ripping off "Harry Potter" with regards to various elements. However, I just found out that "Lord of the Rings" actually came out before "Harry Potter." NO`! YOU DON'T SAY I don't have any apologies, though,REALLY? WHAT DOES IT TAKE? because seriously , how many people actually were aware of this? ALMOST EVEYONE WHO HAS READ THE BOOKS I also saw "The Raven" recently and was shocked to learn that Edgar Allen Poe had died not too long ago. WELL IF 1849 IS NOT TOO LONG AGO, THE SURE WHY NOT. CONDOLENCES TO YOU ON YOUR LOSS. I didn't even know this until my friend pointed this out to me after it was over. So you can never really be sure about who is ripping off who, or who is even still writing literature at any given time.

Also, it is conceivable that Tolkien might have known J.K. Rowling in some way, either directly or indirectly (via email or something) TOO BAD HE DIED IN 1973 AND ROWLING WAS 9, AND THE WORLD WIDE WEB WASN'T INVENTED YET, BUT MAYBE THEY SENT EACH OTHER TELEGRAMS....so it wouldn't be stunning that he could have gotten some plot elements from her. SURE, HE PUBLISHES A BOOK IN 1939 AND PUMPS SOMEONE NOT YER BORN FOR IDEAS.

In any case, both "Harry Potter" and "Lord of the Rings" are great series and stand alone by themselves. But anyways, getting back to the subject of this board, I had a question about "The Hobbit." Does this movie/book take place before or after "Return of the King"? Is this "Lord of the Rings" part 4, and if so, why did they wait this long to come out with the movie? YES IT IS PART FOUR. GANDALF AND BILBO GO TO HOGWARTS AND HELP SET UP THE DIFFERENT HOUSES.

To be followed by this.

Okay agreed I should have done more research about Tolkien before asking YOU BET YOU HAVE, but I just assumed he was a modern popular author like Steven King, J.K. Rowling, Ernest Hemingway DEAD, Agatha Christie DEAD, John Grisham, etc. I didn't realize that "LOTR" was such an old story AND CHRISTIE'S AND HEMMINGWAY'S ARE NOT? I do plan on getting a master's in literature eventually YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME, so I'm sure I'll learn and study more famous authors GET A HEADSTART, READ BOOKS NOW! I could have sworn I've seen interviews with Tolkien commenting on Peter Jackson's directing style and early career PARTLY RIGHT, THAT IS ROYD NOT JRR (and I also thought that he had previously written "The Godfather" books/movies as well as "Mansfield Park") PUZO... TOLKIEN... I SEE WHRE THE SIMILARITY IN THE NAMES MIGHT HAVE CONFUSED THIS BIBLIOPHILE, but obviously that must have been someone else. Sure, I should have done more research, but I try not to rely too much on Wikipedia because any moron is able to post on there. But anyways, overall, my larger point is that "LOTR" and "Harry Potter" are both well written fantasy stories

'Nough said!

Dallas, TX, (June 7th 2012) – FROG GOD GAMES, the makers of roleplaying games and books, today announced that they are acquiring Necromancer Games, the award-winning publishing house known for Necropolis, Rappan Athuk, City of Brass, Tomb of Abysthor, Crucible of Freya, Tome of Horrors, and many other famous titles

Wow!

They will provide updates of their old products to boot.


Hi all,
If this has been discussed before, I apologize, just direct me to the topic I have missed.

So I hear that some people use projectors to actually project floorplans directly on the gaming table.

So what's the deal here? There are two aspects to this that I can think of. So here are the qestions.

1- Hardware : what is the minimum price one can exptect to pay to purchase a projector. Pricing, brand an model would be appreciated.

2- How do you transfer floorplans onto the table? Can you do this while hiding what the player have yet to explore? I am zero at programming, and don't have CAD software knowledge. I guess there must be some software out there, but I figure after paying for a projector, I want to use software that is both easy to use and that can do the job.

Any input from you nice folks out there would be greatly appreciated.


Does anyone know if this 3rd party company is still operational.

What few products they had for Carrion Crown was excellent and other products were in the works. I think there was one product announced last august....


Arrrr!

You landlubbers.

I's can't believe I be the first to tell ye what today is.

y'a better get to it afore Davey Jones gets ahold of ye.

Yo-ho.

Hi everyone!

What is the ruling concerning the ability to change one's self via a supernatural ability and detect magic. If the Hag changes into a dwarf (why? Why not! humor me...)will a detect magic reveal this?
