Re: D&D 5th Edition Discussion

Death in D&D is awfully hard to do (fail three death saving throws before you win three death saving throws) Which is basically a 50/50 chance. A nat 20 brings you automatically back to 1hp and a nat 1 gives you 2 failed saves, so it's actually about 49.5% that you'll die, 50.5% that you'll survive...

My character in Steve's game is a Dwarf Paladin and he is awesome and if you don't like it you can stick your hand in a wood shredder.

Re: Your favorite humanoid monsters...

I've always thought sahuagin were awesome. Orcs, goblins, gnolls, are evil as a byproduct. They are crude, selfish, mean, savage beasts that don't care about anything or anybody, ergo evil. Sahuagin are really, really evil. Like, they actively worship devils. They watch slaves get eaten by sharks fo...

The first Conan. It veered from Howard's telling, considerably in some ways, and that has always bugged me. But the story was true to the feel of Hyboria, so I'll go with that. Honorable mention: The Sword & The Sorcery is just fantastic. Willow is a great film. Dragonslayer . Beastmaster . Krull . ...

For fun.

I'm a 9th level Dwarf Paladin in our game (with a 10th level Wizard in the game). Probably my favorite character and wouldn't want to play a Wizard instead of him regardless of level.

Damage Question

In my game, a nat20 gets you double damage. A high-level Rogue gets quadruple damage from a back attack. In my last game, the Rogue (who in this scenario does triple damage at his level) gets a nat20 on his attack roll. Rolls 7 damage. Triple is 21. Double that is 42. So a fairly average damage roll...

Yeah, sure it will work. Invisibility is a way to mask your physical appearance, some would even say it is an illusion that either bends light or tricks the mind. Either way, only the physical appearance is hidden, they are still there. As such, they will still 'radiate' evil (if that is the correct...
