Re: EXPERT BACKPACKS

I like the idea that 3 seconds would be a half move, I'll go with that.

EXPERT BACKPACKS

I am looking at the expert backpacks in The Adventurer's Backpack and really like the idea of them but am confused by the quick release feature. If a combat round is 10 seconds and an expert backpack takes one to three seconds to remove what is the impact of removing one intended to be when a charac...

Re: Evade vs Parry

I think I'll just go with using parry and forgo dodge and evade in my games. I''l just replace the can't attack phrasing with can't take any action. Seems easier

Evade vs Parry

I am re-reading the Combat Maneuvers rules in the Player's Handbook and CK's Guide and am a bit confused regarding the difference between "evade" from the PHB and "parry" from the CKG.

Re: Queen of Spiders

I have been running a group of old friends through Queen of the Spiders on Fantasy grounds and have actually toned down some of the encounters. They just had their first encounter with the Fire Giants and had their butts handed to them. If I remember right AD&D was designed around a party size of 6 ...

Re: Cell Phones at the table

If/when I own a house where I can have a dedicated gaming room I will build a Faraday cage around it to prevent cell phone usage. I can't think of single time one of my players was interrupted by something important but there are many times when the spouse wanted to know why clothes were left on the...

Re: Wall of Fire Question

Thanks for the feedback, I was inclined to ignore the example in parenthesis but one of my players was thoroughly confused by this so I figured others opinions would help.

Wall of Fire Question

I have a question about the spell Wall of Fire and the size of the wall. In the spell description it says: "In both cases, the wall is 20 feet tall and only 1 foot thick. The fiery wall or curtain of fire measures up to 20 feet long per caster level (up to 100 ft long at 10th level)." If the wall is...
