My son gave me a beautiful handmade mother's Day card that features an illustration of a bear pooping in a cave. In case it isn't clear, the caption underneath reads "BER POPIN".
Not sure if this is a referendum/editorial cartoon on my parenting, or a gift of dark humor by a son who really gets me.
It's probably both.

It's that time again. Summer vacation, and all the writing that entails once I get some paperwork out of the way.

Looking through Paths Of Prestige I can't help but think "Man, I hate prestige classes"

It's still a good book and all (and well worth however much I paid for it two years ago) but man, the hoops you gotta jump through!

Yeah, when we first saw prestige classes we thought, "Awesome! So this is how you really power-up, right?"

...and then the realization that no, the prestige class is (almost always) weaker than the parent class, so it's a really bad idea unless you're just playing for flavor.

I mean, seriously. I wanted my rogue to take a 2-level dip into Shadow Dancer to get Hide in Plain Sight and Darkvision, but after mapping out how much I'd lose (+1d6 sneak attack damage, +1 BAB, a rogue talent, 4 skill points) compared to what I'd gain, it was really not worth it.

Ah, life, you wacky, annoying, fickle mistress without whom life would be impossible!

Due to various intrafamily rifts, we haven't seen NobodysWife's aunt and uncle in several years. We used to spend every Thanksgiving at their place and we got along very well.
So they're trying to re-establish the relationship, but both we and they have extremely busy weekends, so we had to plan two months in advance to get a brunch date.

And of course I woke up this morning with a 99.7° F fever (37.6° C to you furriners).

So looks like I'll be spending brunch banished to the studio so as to not infect them.

Whee?


Archetypes > prestige classes. The latter is a good idea but balance afficionados got ahold of it and turned it into something else.


I truly do wish PrCs were more mechanically appealing . . . . Sometimes even the flavor seems "not quite there", though.

One of my favorites was the 3.5 ordained champion -- but I refluffed it into a CE/CN/NE Erythnul PrC . . . .

Prestige classes were never ideal, but they are at least functional.

Perhaps more then even the "1-20 classes" they are all over the place in term of flavour, scope and power. Some were decent, some where straight up downgrades.
Also some notions about requirements are less then optimal, and downright strange or stupid at times.

*Stares angrily at Alignment, Gender and to a lesser extend racial requirements*

If I was to rewamp the way leveling is done I would probably take a page out of Shadow of the Demonlord.

There player select their race, which grants them their basic starting abilities and stats (with a small amount of customization - something I would like to see more of in that game). Furthermore their race grant them further abilities at 4th lvl.

They select their Base class (Fighter, Rogue, Priest or Magician) at 1th lvl and get those base abilities. They furthermore get further abilities from their base class at 2nd, 5th and 8th lvl.

At 3rd lvl they then select their Expert class (Paladin, Cleric, Druid, Ranger, Thief, Witch and so on) and get those abilities. They furthermore get further abilities from their expert class at 6th and 9th lvl.

Finally at 7th lvl they select their Master class (Arcanist, Avenger, Bard, Conjurer, Dreadnaught, Gunslinger, Inquisitor and so on) and get those abilities. They furthermore get further abilities from their master class at 10th lvl.

Take that, flush out race and base class customization (maybe stick a background "chapter" in there with some abilities attached).
Expand it to cover 20 levels instead of just 10 level and it would look pretty snazzy to, and it would make PrC's a thing of the past.
You could still have further "archetype-y" customization by making kits to modify either of the three class tiers (although I suspect that many of them could be made into one of the three class tiers in their own right).

I am wildly incompetent at Fortnite.

I'm okay with that.


About to shut computer down to start the second session. If I'm not back on-line, have a good evening, everybody.

I think what happened was PrCs started as "Here's a way to customize your game world, and a few examples," but then WotC quickly realized that few DMs have the time/energy/confidence to write their own PrCs, but a whole lot of players love them. So for a lot of groups, PrCs simply became another axis of customization, and a great way to sell splats for WotC.

And meanwhile, the interweb D&D community experienced countless flamewars over what role PrCs ought to fill, which ones were good/bad, and how to mod them.


I always thought they were a good way to add fluff/flavour, by allowing you to give a particular cultural/racial spin to a class; no doubt there are all sorts of other ways to do that, though.

I don't mind prestige classes, it's mostly the super specific entry requirements of some that annoy me.

Or when your main class abilities are stunted.

So apparently friends and family have asked Mrs Sunrise "Is Tequila Russian/Polish?" due to my habit of spelling my name fonetically on social media and my email address.

To which she's replied, "No, he's just a Jew with funny ideas about the English language."

With sensible ideas about the English language.

Well, I survived my friend's wedding.
The champagne was blue.
The whole event was so bizarre that my current plan is to edit the snarky text exchange I had with my sister over the course of the afternoon into a humorous essay and submit it to The New Yorker for consideration in the "Shouts and Murmurs" column so the day won't have been a total loss.

I wouldn't be quite so harsh were it not for the fact that my friend's new bride, while lovely and charming and a lot of fun, is a professional wedding planner and has no excuse.

I don't drink so I might be out of the loop on this, but is this something that's just not considered acceptable?

Cause, I mean, I had a blue soda last night and I have a 3-liter of purple ginger ale in the fridge, so it's clearly something that works in the bottled carbonated drink business, but I'm not sure how well that transfers over to the alcohol realm.

It looked like a Jones Soda.

The wedding was formal attire, but the table centerpieces were two-foot-high novelty champagne flutes filled with bright blue saltwater taffy. On each centerpiece, the table number was encrusted in rhinestones.
The color of the champagne matched the taffy.

To make things even more surreal, the bride's ex husband was the fourth groomsman from the right.

And the DJ kept hopping between decades and musical genres in a way that reminded me of Robin Williams at the height of his cocaine addiction... a Frank Sinatra tune followed by "Islands in the Stream" followed by the JAWS theme followed by Cindy Lauper followed by Etta James followed by The Proclaimers. During "500 Miles", I was so bored I started doing my best air drum solo at the table with a couple of coffee spoons until I caught the bride's deaf daughter staring at me like I was utterly deranged, so I stopped. It's a good song, but you can't dance to it.

Surely you just march around on the dance floor, singing along at the top of your lungs.

Since a person's voice sounds different to themselves than it does to other people, it is possible for two people to have a conversation and never realize that they are speaking to their voice twin.

A pet rock is a great pet, until you realize that they are effectively immortal and you have doomed them to an eternity of watching loved one die.
