Re: We need to talk about the Slayer

In other words, I think in that situation Michebugio aimed for RAF (Rules As Fun) http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/sage-advice/philosophy-behind-rules-and-rulings There is nothing wrong with it, if it's fun for you and all your players. Thanks Anarfin , that's exactly my philosophy. :) One final poi...

Re: We need to talk about the Slayer

I feel like I must be missing something here. In this context, what does 'light' mean in reference to the Dwarf Slayer and his tower shield (1d6, light)? Isn't the tower shield essentially the same thing as a great shield which weighs around 35 lbs.? I am not finding rules in AiMe ( Player's Guide ...

Re: We need to talk about the Slayer

I still see a possible problem with Slayer in AiME (not enough diferent damage type mind-affecting effects), but it strikes me that Tauler, as a monster with CR 9, do not have multiattack as one of his actions. One question, if the spider had been able to cast Terrorize as a bonus action (which is ...

Re: We need to talk about the Slayer

That's a great write up. I accept that a few of the numbers are possibly out as i suspect you only have the write down of hp on a combat pad, so any "analysis" is at best rough, but I think the dwarf got lucky. [...] Thank you (and to Wanton), I'm glad you also enjoyed the write up. Yes, I agree th...

Re: We need to talk about the Slayer

I want to hear more about the fight against Tauler... he’s got resistance to regular damage, superior mobility and can Paralyse and Frighten targets (the last one from range). Did those abilities come into play? Alright, I don’t recall it perfectly but I’ll try to describe it as faithfully as possi...

We need to talk about the Slayer

After more than one year of playing (as a Loremaster), I have developed many concerns about the Slayer . Not the class per se , since it’s an almost perfect transposition of the Barbarian from the highly playtested D&D rules. But its particular set of skills may give problems of balance to your part...

We're using the Pre-mades for our first adventure, Although our player playing Beli has renamed him to Clem Fandango.
This guy knows he's not playing Savage World's Deadlands, right?

Re: Your Fellowships!

Well, I'm a bit sad that this topic didn't have the slightest success. I was really hoping we could share some plot ideas and, why not, use characters from each other's Fellowships as NPCs in our campaigns!

Oh well, I'll keep lurking around. :)

Re: Justice at Thranduil's Hall

I've run The Questing Beasts some time ago, and I brought it to the extreme consequences. My players tried to sneak into Polin and Pomin's hideout to rescue Ruithel, but they were spotted. Attempts to reason with the dwarves also failed, as they threatened them aggravating the situation. So, in the ...

Re: On Slayers and Warriors

When you're considering potential totems, all, you might consider the ones from other books, too (I think they're in Volo's), like the tiger and elk . I think that the Elk Totem may be quite appropriate for Mirkwood Elves Slayers, both in terms of abilities and theme. I would rename it Stag Totem, ...
