There's a $2.99 racial feats for Tortle and Volo's, that's got a few mentions around giantitp.  Probably not broken.

Personally I won't bother, but they did go First Mover on that, and who knows if wotc will officialize it at some point.

Gaming Advice / Re: [3.0/3.5] Looking for non-psionic half-giant

'Nother half-giant in Savage Species (iirc).
** edit = nope , idk where then.


... in the complete psionic. Which incidentally also states that racial classes can be intermixed with standard classes (ie: you don't have to finish a racial class before taking other class levels). So, maybe a plus for those fond of applying the savage progressions concepts globally.

?!
I had noticed the intermixing ecl ~build tables for those various races in CPsi.
What page is that rules text?
you can excuse me for reading CPsi much closer than most, but I totally missed that one.

The old way was something like "Flesh Golem" 9 , PAO'd into a "Flesh Golem 9".
With a good luck finding a spare PAO-er hanging around Sigil or anywhere else.

Glyph 6 to make a 6th.
Glyph 7 to make a 7th.
Glyph 8 to make a Wish based 8th , xor Glyph 9 to make an 8(+1*)th
* is heightened 1 level (and perhaps not useful)

Bard has to wait 1 level for Wish.
Bard has some Bard list + 3 other spells + Wish.

Cleric has all Cleric list , Arcana has + 3 Wiz spells + Wish.
Cleric might get a very rare DMother-may-I extra 9 = Glyph 9 to make a 9th (!)
That day goes :  Glyph 8 to make a 7(+1)th , Glyph 7 to make a 6(+1)th , Glyph 6 to make a 5(+1)

Wizard Conj 2 gets way better economics early on, and generally better Wiz list.
Tight DM might require Haste to pop off a Conj 2 and make the Glyph casting, during the same round.

Conj > Wiz > Arcana > Bard > Cleric

Ehh ... err ... I think that tweet-rata just about does it.

The XGtE sleep section has 2 IF clauses, and
the tweet settles/ends the first one.  The 2nd one
is still sleep based which is not the problem for
Elves, Warforged, that Invoc or the 1 psi-thingy.
Their sleep "problems" are just fine.
But it puts the Long Rest mechanics right there.

I think what this does, is it puts any SorLock based
spell banking (Soro's term) onto a resource schedule
of removing exhaustion levels.  As in it still works,
just more slowly, and you have to take a day off
every now and then. 

Stick it on the pile with abusing Rope Trick or
Leomund's Tiny Hut; though less borkt than either
because there's an actual cost to do it.

Keep hanging in there Bhu.
Some of this recent stuff is veering into Kuroimaken meets Twilight Zone territory.

D&D 5e / Re: 5e Psionics
« on: December 17, 2017, 02:20:36 PM »
partial tangent but not really , eh you know my drill

It's kinda like a kardashev scale.
0 = bee , take this nectar back to queen she'll be there
1 = humans , no magic infer things into the future
2 = Divinations
3 = Deities and similar handing you the Divinations
4 = AO
5 = Pun-pun
(6 = marvel Beyonders + The writers)

Pun-pun could always rewind any Facts he wants too + scrub them out.

So anyway, if 3e was say a 3.1 -ish level, maybe wotc
wants to dial it down a little, but not as far down as 4e.

Spell Sniper requires an Attack Roll to double the range ...

D'oh , forgot that detail.  OK, acceptable choice at level 10 for most.
Good choice at level 3 for the level 8 +d8 domains, or War.


Quote

...  but yeah Zephyr is great. Specially if you don't bother to Concentrate on it, popping it as a Bonus Action gives you four benefits that roughly come out to move where you need to be and hurt what you need to hurt.

Niice.  Choosing whether to go conc or not, is a useful twist.

Word Of Radiance cantrip is better than Thunderclap
or Swordburst , friendly hoard clearer , and quite tasty
at level 8 with a +wis domain and Spell Sniper feat.

Zephyr Strike is conc , but makes you AoO proof = positive feedback.

Get well soon, the game sounds so cute.


I presume your kids are too young to be told how
an Ewok and Chewy's sister made a Bug-baby-bear.      Use the force ...
Well maybe the ~Dizney version.

Well that might have been extra interesting , presuming the water's super cold right now.


Most of the time, a dead battery will work just fine after say 15 minutes of drive time charge up.

Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice. 

Throw in Advantage on Init via Re-Ranger too.
Is this the best Alpha-Striker?  Maybe.
Best init and easier hide triggering.

Wis + Dex races preferred , so that's :
VHuman , Half-Elf , one of the Planescape Elves ...

(reads) Now I see the attraction of Gloom Stalker :
triggering Invisible all the time, throw in lots of Hide actions too.
Goblin kicks it off 2 levels sooner.

hmm ...


At the end of 2e , Orcus dies and his body is something ginormous out on the astral.
Maybe what he (it?) did was make a dungeon that looked like him
plus do this trick to it + Mind Switch (or somethin' like that).

Use a bag of holding to move around a Glyph + get more Glyphs.

« on: December 08, 2017, 04:50:13 PM »
Stuff like i.p.proofing and anything simple math like a +1 blanket ability vs a +2 small use ability , is definitely fair game for a.i.

But yeah, so much of the game is semantics, english language logic + usage quirks, leadership, divinations, etc.


Chess based sites now have up longer write-ups about the AlphaZero games.
Tossing so much 1000+ year tradition aside, for tactics unimagined until these games happened.

hmm not sure what he means by that.
Perhaps he's just giving the dude ~permission (that he doesn't actually need) , like a blessing from the godfather.

Normal spell point pricing goes 0/2/3/5/6/7 per level
but the Monk 4 Elements goes 1/2/3/4/5/6 per ~level equivalent.
Shadow Blade is a level 2 spell right (?) so it should be 3 points.
But who knows for sure about that.  An eventual monk multiclass
Tashalatora-like feat, is going to be hard to word correctly.
