D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder / Help with a Thematic build: Necrobard (3.5)
« on: January 23, 2018, 06:28:37 PM »
The premise is simple. I want a bard that can raise the dead, especially badass skeletons if at all possible.

Of course, 'bard' here is a bit of a loose term. The bard class is notoriously lacking in abilities such as turn undead to actually control undead. I suspect even taking Sublime Chord and Spelldancer cheese this might be a tricky thing to do.

I recall a class called the Dirgesinger that seemed basically to be a sadboi skeleton-buffing bard, but I can't remember what exactly it did or if it was any good.

Off Topic Fun / Anime and series recommendation thread!
« on: September 14, 2017, 02:59:26 PM »
Hey guys!

So it turns out I have like 1-2 hours of free time before and after uni every day on my way there, and I've been using that time to get caught up on anime and series and stuff.

Thing is, I'm burning through all that pretty damn quick - I've almost run out of tokusatsu to watch, same with anime I'm actually interested in. So I'm looking for recommendations! Any suggestions?

Min/Max 3.x / Trampling PrC requisites?
« on: August 13, 2017, 06:51:42 PM »
So a question came by the other day about triple threats (level 9 divine and arcane spells and level 9 powers). I knew there were ways to do this, so one quick google search later I found a few builds that should, in theory, let me get there. As I thought, it was all about squeezing in as many theurge-like classes into as little space as possible.

But one thing caught my curiosity. There were mentions of entering Sublime Chord with a single bard level and as soon as level 3 or 4, but aside from the spells, the prereqs for SC state 10 ranks in Perform along with other skills. How is it possible to bypass the skill caps like that? Were those simply overlooked? The typical cheese for going over the casting prereqs is well-known (Sanctum Spell, Versatile Spellcaster + Heighten Spell, etc.), but this one seems a bit more esoteric.

Off Topic Fun / I need cosplaying help!

Hey guys!

Here's the skinny. there's going to be a LARPing camp in about 20 days and I still don't have my full costume set. One thing I'm particularly stuck on: shoes.

I can't find boots my size because my calves are too big. So I basically need medieval sneakers. Unfortunately there's basically no such thing.

I would appreciate any reference you guys can give me about shoes that look right for the part and are still fairly comfortable.

...I can tell for sure. Kylo Ren missed Han's vitals.

If Han doesn't come back in the next couple of films, it'll be because they couldn't afford Harrison Ford.

Because the last one hit 50 pages again.

Geez, we sure have a lot of problems.

The idea is simple: pick a D&D class. Apply to the person above you. Feel free to expound on why, as long as you keep it civil.

Multiclass combos are allowed. Since I'm starting the thread, I'll name the class of whoever posts next.  :P

EDIT: And we open up with Solo, obviously going dashing Rogue.

And light novels, visual novels, whatever.

Because the last one reached 50 pages and I wanted to name the new thread.

So, I'm still watching 80's anime. Particularly City Hunter. I get chills whenever Footsteps in the Night starts playing.  :p

The ride back to Castlevania remains without further incident.

You are all disembarked directly at the Throne Room, and the coachswain declines offering his Lord a courtesy before departing - for literal fear of losing his head in the process. The carriage vanishes into thin smoke.

Death and Dracula await. The Lord of Darkness, himself, seems to be lazily awaiting in his throne; he wears heavy greaves with a pair of spiked spurs, as if he's been outside until recently. A bound and gagged succubus is serving as an ottoman, and the spurs dig deeply into her flesh every now and then. She suppresses her writhing, but the way her eyes roll back and she bites tightly into the gag clearly indicate this is not meant to be punishment.

Neither of them says anything. Common knowledge dictates you address them before you are spoken to.

You know what to do.

Off Topic Fun / Am I an asshole? Seriously?
« on: November 29, 2013, 08:44:37 PM »
Because sometimes I feel like that's all people see me as.

A little background on this.

I have recently gotten into a big argument with a Facebook friend. It was about feminism. More especifically, gay/straight pride. I won't get into particulars, but basically my line of argument was that there's nothing to be proud ABOUT, or rather, shouldn't you have like a dozen things to be proud of before your sexuality even factors into it?

More recently, I posted this picture.

http://hugelol.com/lol/215388

Which was meant to be, at best, sarcastic.

Now here's the thing: I see chivalry as a way of life. A way of life that includes being kind to men AND women alike. Which includes being nice without wanting reward. Which means being a good person, generally, not out of duty, but because one believes it's the right thing to do.

Yet like so many things before it, chivalry has been branded DAH EBULZ by such things as the feminist movement. The mere mention of it as a good thing is apparently grounds for becoming a social pariah. Anything that remotely resembles an alternative to feminist discourse, or at least in the way it's presented, is sexist and therefore evil.

Here's a line from that Facebook friend I mentioned:

"I'm not obligated to tolerate you or anybody I don't want to."

The corollary to that thought being that so is nobody else. Nobody has the obligation of tolerating anybody else. It's meant to be the most basic of common courtesy: as long as what you do doesn't interfere with me in any negative, harassing or annoying fashion, then I have no business interfering with you. Provided, of course, that said interference is not meant to prevent actual harm to you (like by keeping you from shooting yourself or getting run over by a car. And even then one is not obligated to interfere).

I believe that there's no such thing as absolutely evil thought. Similarly, not EVERYTHING that's awful has no good fruit: the same technology that gave us the atom bomb has given us nuclear energy, which while not by any means the cleanest or safest source of energy, it's certainly the only alternative for certain countries that can't exploit naturally occurring phenomena for the same purpose. Similarly, the fact that chivalry arguably arose from a time when sexism was rampant does not make it the spawn of the Devil assfucking Baby Cthulhu.

Everyone seems to DEMAND respect for who they are, while at the same time condemning and belittling everyone that is NOT them for the very same reason - in other words, acting like the EXACT KIND OF BIGOTS THEY RISE AGAINST. I can't believe I'm the only one who thinks this is the case.

I'm sick and tired of being seen as some kind of dumping ground for everyone's social indignation because I don't belong to a "minority". Because I'm "wrong". Because I'm an "asshole", or "the guy who always has to be right".

It's like high school all over again.
