D&D 5e / Re: Spell fluff vs. RAW
« on: January 31, 2019, 04:52:31 PM »
I don't have an explicit rules cite sitting in front of me ... but

Let's say you sub in Fireball for Sickening Radiance.
The ambient light situation (light, dim, dark) is separate from the spell side effect of the bright firey flash.

It should be / ought-to-be clearer, when wotc is talking rules vs. descriptive.

I may be suing work for discrimination and harassment.

Go get 'em.
If a jury hears any of the stories you've posted 'round here, you'll have their sympathy.
Careful choosing your lawyer.

The picture of the 7 races is rather off.
(I get it they've got a graphics generator that does whatever it does)
(and they probably weren't planning on messing with it)

The classic proportions for Dwarves and Halflings comes from LotR.
These look like % downsized in 3 dimensions equally, and that's wrong.

Gina Carano's character as portrayed in Deadpool "looks" very stocky.
She isn't in real life, but she does look athletically muscular.
She's 5'8" and currently listed as 143 pounds ; higher when not competing.
Dwarves are 1 foot shorter and 25+ pounds heavier. 
Their proportions wouldn't / can't look anything like a normal human.
They look more like my avatar, and not like a willowy version of Angel Dust.

OK good, your basic idea is sound.
Early access casting is good times.

I'm a psi guy, and right off the bat
... the first sentence.
This changes where Overchannel goes.

Militia feat has a level requirement, which messes with your start.
There are multiple versions floating around, but depending on which one,
may cause a bigger problem with firesoul + skypledged.

Necropolitan at first level = dead.  So that goes later.

Firesoul is LA+3 and Necropolitan costs exp too, meaning LA buy-off
won't be done by level 20.  This makes the build a 19 level build.

Firesoul + Skypledged are not compatible on fluff + r.a.i. ... but
Fire Subtype and Pledgebreaker are compatible on crunch + r.a.w.
Might not work with any particular DM , and see Militia above.

The details of the early access casting aren't my thing.
PlzBreakMyCampaign has the most exacting work-up on that.
Might find something useful there.

... Is there anything you see that could improve this setup?

proofreading would help.

Are you a responder?
If I point out some basics (and by basics , I mean b a s i c s) would you still be able to interact about it?

Further out , if you could minorly retrain a bit
... and scroll up for the various destinies themselves.

Otherwise you're at DavidWL's Sam the Commoner (which is just complicated at home games).
Although, there's a rebreather build somewhere 'round here, that might be hackable.  idk details.

Is it me or did anyone else think :  race Dragon class Shaman, and go ha! a-tier 1 -ing we go , pause oops no that's not it bummer?

... and then I repeated it with the other of chrome+firefox, because it was so much fun in the first place, so 'nother Oh wow man giggle munchies what?

@ADMG, I don't think I'm up to running scripts to try to change links yet, and I still see the little prism symbol on the main forum.

No problem, when(if)ever it's do-able.

Not getting the prism in firefox or chrome. 
(might be a problem of :  us and them)

Most of the links in the "bg-archive.minmaxforum" section
still have their old "brilliantgameologists" addresses and
don't properly redirect like the links on the minmaxforum side.

Can't tell if this makes me feel  :sobbing , or rather librarian-ish :teach

edit --- Oh.  Also noticed we don't have the little Pink Floyd thingy next to any minmaxforum web pages anymore.
This makes me sad.

At least China went to the dark side of the moon just to cheer me (us?) up.

Stealth + armor is do able.

Iron Heart Surge can handle some of the immunities.

" ... with a few levels of warrior ... "
Warrior as in what class ??
I'm assuming a very minor translation problem.

Star Talk with Neil DeGrasse Tyson, had a good one.

His astro co-host Charles Liu said (~paraphrasing) :   "I do open book exams, I do open internet exams.  We have to be smarter than a google search."

I found this tweet :
Charles Liu @chuckliu 26 Nov 2018
Are my exams really open internet? Ask my students... …
links to season 5 episode 3.

I'll pat myself on the back then ... because I'm at least as smart as his freshmen (the googling part).

Glyph Of Warding trick minor update :

Ravnica has the guild spells.  Izzet has Glyph at level 3,
now available to all caster classes ; 'cept 4 elements monk  :P

Warlock and Sorc (especially Divine Soul) are somewhere a fit
with the previous ranking.  Land Druids can kinda do it too.

edit ...
Lock 17 / Sorc 3 uses the 9th to make an 8 gylph , the 7th to make a 6 glyph,
uses 3 points and rips a 5th into 7 points, to make 3 twin 5 glyphs
short rest, makes 2 twin 5 glyphs and 1 empower 5 glyph, repeat ~ twice
14 glyphs in 17 hours , need to not make 3 every 4th day
