Yeah - the issue with Discord is that it's ephemeral... the conversations move past and then on to a new one. The forums are more permanent and more easily searchable.

Re: A question

In my game I make a judgement call regarding whether the target can get a chance to see/hear the rogue. 1) If the rogue is sneaking up on someone, outside of combat, to strike... if it is reasonable that the rogue could do so, based on the circumstances, then I let the rogue make the attack without ...

Re: Evade vs Parry

It is up to the CK to determine which types of combat maneuvers are allowed at the table. You are correct that evade seems like a lesser powered option when compared to parry. I can't see a case where the CK would allow BOTH of those - more likely the CK would allow one as an optional combat maneuve...

Of course, if your players are philosophers, do not engage when they try to justify their actions; keep it simple or nothing good will come of it. :lol: Didja hear this one: "A rules lawyer, philosopher and munchkin walk into a C&C game . . .

Re: Wow man, Tiamat.

I have both. Paid 48$ for the new one and 65$ for the older one. What's the size difference, if any? Thanks. Relatively close - I think the base of the old one is 3x3 and the new one is 4x4. I'll have to get home and measure to be sure. I found this pic online with the comparison: http://gravengame...

Re: Please vote for your favorite PHB printing. (aesthetics)

For me it is a tough choice between 4th and 6th. I really like the thick black and white pages of the 4th, but the luxurious color and glossy feel of the 6th calls to me. So I voted 6th, but really it is like 50/50 for those two.

Death is a constant possibility in games I run - even high level ones (or maybe I should say especially high level ones). Add to that the fact that my game world doesn't have resurrection or raise dead and you see that death is pretty permanent. The PCs don't want to be raised because the only way t...
