couple of DMag #305 feats


Good Neighbor [General]
You have developed positive relations within your community, and its members are willing to offer you assistance when you need it.
Prerequisites: Cha 12+.
Benefits: When in your chosen city, the initial attitudes of regular members of the community toward you never begin worse than indifferent. You also gain a +4 circumstance bonus to Charisma checks for the purpose of influencing the attitudes of members of the community.
Note: You must specify one city or town in which this feat applies.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new city or town.

 :) Dust off your diplomancer stuff, go run a city.  Even better go to Sigil.


Line of Credit [General]
Your reputation for trustworthiness is such that members of your community are willing to sell you goods and services on credit.
Prerequisites: Cha 12+, Good Neighbor.
Benefits: When purchasing an item or service in your chosen city, you can have a line of credit for a number of gold pieces equal to your Charisma score x 100. (This value can not be higher than one-half the town’s GP Limit based on table 4-40: Random Town Generation in the Dungeon Master’s Guide.)
Once you use this ability, you have one month in which to repay the money owed. If you fail to repay the money owed in one month, while within your chosen city you suffer a –5 penalty to all Charisma-based skill checks. This penalty increases by –5 every month (-10 after two months, -15 after three months, and so on).
After you use a line of credit for any amount, you may not use it again until you repay the outstanding balance.
Note: You must specify one city or town in which this feat applies.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new city or town, but you must also have taken the Good Neighbor feat for the appropriate community first.

 :twitch Easy enough to crank your Charisma up.  But the real oomph is borrowing money for Spellcasting Services, go adventure, get loot, pay back the money.  It's Finance.  Like the modern kind.  Does someone with a legit (real life) MBA who knows that level of Finance, wanna chime in on simplified basics ?!  Even without any of that, it's quite delicious.

Post #17 has that updated list.  But there's plenty of info.
Some of the posters aren't around anymore, or are very rare.

I was getting my hopes up for a Cleric Knowledge 2 dip ... but nope.


Re-read the Tools Required and the Tool Expertise abilities.
Can you say double-prof spellcaster ?!
They'll edit that for sure.

"City Brawler" is a Barb acf in Drag #349.

It didn't catch on, prolly from the tricky wording.

What books do you have available ?

What do you mean by "Turtle" ?


Ranger makes a decent Scout (and there's a guide for that).
Ranger skills don't totally overlap with the Rogue's.
The rogue can do the face charisma stuff and the trapfinding.

Make sure the cleric doesn't do in-combat healing.
Deading things is better than something that can be put off a few rounds.

interesting stuff Osle

speaking of crumbling ...  :rolleyes

USA and UK are the two oldest governments in the world.
It should surprise no one that the various leaders are also the oldest (or nearly so).
Bernie is 77.  Biden is 76.  Trump is 72. Hillary is a spry 71.
Jeremy Corbyn is 69.  Vince Cable of the Lib Dems is 75.
Sclerotic.
"Appropriately" too.

... But honestly ...

That level of honesty and detail, will serve you and yours well.

The economist Jeffrey Sachs worked on Russia's transition out of their old system.  He did OK, they didn't do as well.  But he learned from his mistakes.  He has said the number 1 thing developing economies can do to help themselves, is to do real Sewage systems.  It's my understanding Sao Paulo is nearly complete in it's upgrade, and then they can branch out to Rio and the rest of the country.  It should work and the benefits are real.

Sans a Dragon Mag dive, seems you are right.


... Probably superseded ...

Yeah, probably, they've named other things the same before.
But Ghostwalk is supposed to be a separate setting, hence the wiggle room.
Still might be more in dmag.


I'd love to see a Rebuke Outsiders = win that game, build.
And have it be explained / explainable to non-specialists (like me).

My father likes to claim he was abducted one time when he was dating my mother. He says he left my mothers at 10pm but didnt get home until 4am with my Grandmother waiting for him. What else could it have been but aliens?

actual tune from the 40's :
Romance without Finance is a Nuisance.  Uh huh, that's right.

Noticed Nanshork's go make a thread suggestion.

Yeah, no access at all to bg-archive.
Had a 500 and a white screen at various points the last few days.
White Screen even gives my kitty avatar's Tail the willies.

Yeah there's a lot of link rot.
And right now today, the bg-archive is down.
This  :
https://web.archive.org/web/20100404040611/http://community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/75882/19872270/The_Revenant_Blade_Handbook
... is the JanusJones Revenant handbook.

Chances are the Ranger 2 / Fighter 2 / Pounce Barb 1
is as good a start as any.  Darth Maul doesn't have
all that many lines in the movies, though angry facing
Daenerys at the end of Han Solo, counts as roleplaying.
(cough)

What classes are the Tank , Rogue + Healer ?

Only if you know what kind of drugs they were on.
