Red Band Deadpool Trailer.  NSFW.  Obviously.

Interesting.  Not my thing, but still interesting.  Was that a statue of the Virgin Mary in the background on Gimme Chocolate?

I admit being kinda startled that all the trouble we put in to give the GM flexible critter creation for an equitable reward gets completely pitched in practice Tongue.
Having never been a huge fan of XP, it's loss doesn't impact me in the slightest.  However, I greatly appreciate the "flexible critter creation."  Having building blocks that allow me to customize the threat I throw at the PC's is something I've always wanted.  Like SilvercatMoonpaw, I just don't like or want to track XP.

Why are they still trying to make a Dungeons and Dragons movie. If they would just make one based off of the novel they already have existing and name it after them maybe throw Forgotten Realms and d & D into the title screen somewhere that would be okay. But quit trying to make a Dungeons and Dragons movie.

Indeed!  However, I suspect that the reason they keep trying is that the execs who want to cash in on the brand recognition of D&D have no idea what a "D&D story" would be about.

Hell, I'd settle for a live action remake of the 80's kids cartoon of the same name.

Would twice a month be better?

Or once a month, but longer on the weekend?

I'm flexible.

Krensky,

Until I know what's going on with my work situation, I can't commit to anything that requires even a minimum of regularity.  It's one of the reasons (the biggest) I haven't had a stable table-based game in close to five years.  I travel about 30% of the time and am gone for 2+ weeks at a time.  Doesn't make it easy to do regular.  And, given that my work takes me far away from the US at times (as well as US time zones) I just can't do it.

I truly appreciate the offer and respect the effort you're making.  If I'm ever in your neck of the woods, maybe we can do a one shot.

Steampunk/Dieselpunk airships sounds freakin' sweet.  But I can't promise anything like that regularity, so I must decline.   Cry

As must I.  For the same reason.

Lars smiles at Creamor and bends down to touch the blood flowing out of Donnigan.  He straightens a bit and begins chanting a section of the Contract that speaks of the power of Asmodeus while drawing the Asmodean symbol on Creamor's chest.  "Rise, Creamor, servant of Asmodeus.  May your efforts crush our enemies and bolster our god."

With the solemn rite completed, Lars turns to Janus and says, "While Barden and I can certainly handle it, who will be impersonating Father Donnigan?  Are any of you familiar with the rites and prayers some of the faithful will ask to be performed?  How will you calm the panic of the words dangerous disease and quarantine?  Remember that these folk are like sheep: docile until frightened and then they will scatter to the winds.  Our master wants the town destroyed.  He doesn't need people flying to the wind causing others to come here."  Pausing for a moment, he adds, "I suppose you could simply say that you are busy with Mama Guiseppe's illness and that they should return to their homes and pray for her well being.  That should keep rumors from spreading too quickly."

Threaten a second time, fluffed as continuing the prayer.

Threaten:
1d20+11 → [15,11] = (26)
Stress, if successful:
1d10 → [2] = (2)

Not quite as effective as I would have liked but I'll take it.

And attempt to brain him again.

Attack:
1d20+5 → [3,5] = (Cool
Damage:
1d8+2 → [3,2] = (5)

Damn you, invisiblecastle.com, why won't you let Lars hit things with his mace?

Is following the manual's guidelines about the "adventures" needed to level up working fine in this regard?

It did for my group.

Lars begins chanting a prayer to Asmodeus designed to draw strength out of a foe and replace it with fear and terror, his eyes locked on the good Father Donnigan.

The swing at the back of the priest's head goes awry due to the jostle of bodies around the old man.
27  Community / Play-by-Post / Re: [OOC] Way of the Wicked on: July 29, 2015, 11:52:33 PM
Lars will open with Intimidate (Threaten) due to his lovely Glint of Madness.

Threaten:
1d20+11 → [15,11] = (26)

Stress:
1d10 → [6] = (6) Stress


He will follow that with a club to the back of the head of the good Father Donnigan.

Attack:
1d20+5 → [2,5] = (7)
Gah, what is it with Lars and hitting things?

Damage, though I doubt that hit:
1d8+2 → [5,2] = (7)
Well, that could have been good ...


Are there any standard characters shill in the room upon which Lars might be able to use his Contempt?
28  Community / Play-by-Post / Re: [OOC] Way of the Wicked on: July 28, 2015, 10:27:40 PM
Lars will move into the room and attack Father Donnagin.

Attack:
1d20+5 → [2,5] = (7)

Damage (if attack hits):
1d8+2 → [6,2] = (Cool

I'm going to assume you want to drop an AD on that mace damage, Ludo.


Why, yes, of course.   Grin

Lars will open up with Scorching Ray.  I'm tempted to use Fireball but that seems ... less than ideal with allies in the building.  The success is automatic.  The only questions are whether I can have all three rays target soldier boy or not and whether you round up or down "per two caster levels."

Assuming it's round down and that he can target all three rays at the hapless soldier:
2d4 → [2,2] = (4)
2d4 → [3,3] = (6)
2d4 → [2,1] = (3)

He'll follow that up with a club mace to the head.

Attack:
1d20+5 → [10,5] = (15)

Damage (if attack hits):
1d8+2 → [1,2] = (3)
