    Am I the only one thinking that this barfight was just the worst "comba"t ever?
    1) "I cast Darkness" What? You don´t cast Darkness without having a good talk about it with all your team mates. In this situation it made it basicly impossible for anybody to do anything.
    2) Feary Fire. Oh wow, now the enemies have advantage on attacks against Donaar and he still can´t see anything.
    3) "Two move actions would´t be fair." (44:39) One can split their movement. And getting across a table won´t use 30ft. Also Rosie is a monk and has movement for days. Also also she just screwed her party member plan (again) with not moving out of there.

    1:12:15 - Scene on the cart with K'thriss popping out of the back and Rosie saying, in earnest, "Oh, no-no, that's my nightmare hole, don't worry about that." Had me chuckling as I walked away into the kitchen to grab some dinner, fresh out of the oven. Ten minutes later I'm back with a warm plate in hand, still giggling.
    Can't wait to hit that play button again.
    Thank you, C Team peeps, for enjoying this gig as much as I do.

    Man is it always uncomfortable for a DM to have to deny the player or what? I had this same thing happen to me not too long ago, had a player get mad at me cuz I wouldn't use grouping instead of weapons feats. Personally I don't dislike grouping, except if you get rid of class known weapons then your screwing that one guy who wants to make himself an all around weapons guy. Then there is the exoctic weapons master prestige class in the complete warrior, grouping would make that class moot wouldn't it? Anyway it can become uncomfortable to have a player argue.

      Nikoli WhatzItToYa 9 месяцев назад

He leaves behind 17 chicks and one very distraught widow. His coworkers, the Priest, Rabbi, and Imam who are always walking into bars together, have set up a GoFundMe page to try to get those kids through college and put seed on the ground.

    Hex is bonus action, and pick an ability to have Disadvantage for an ability check. So the Wis check for the Dissonant Whispers from K'thriss should have been Disadvantage, and 4d6 (3d6 DW+1d6 extra from Hex)

    • TheLikkittysplitt
      TheLikkittysplitt 5 месяцев назад

      Mike Henderson hex is already incredibly useful in and out of combat. How much more powerful do want this level 1 spell to be?

    • Sergio Le Roux
      Sergio Le Roux 9 месяцев назад +4

      Nope, a Warlock's main source of damage is Eldritch Blast, which is also the only cantrip that shoots multiple times per round (up to 4 at level 17), which means that you get to do the Hex damage 4 times each round, plus a ton of other nifty Invocations that boost Eldritch Blast even more, such as adding your Charisma bonus to each projectile damage, or pushing enemies 10' into nearby pits, or shooting at ridiculous long distances.
      If you're not going to specialize in Eldritch Blast, nobody's forcing you to cast Hex. But there's no doubt that Hex was designed to combo with either Eldritch Blast, or a Blade Pact warlock's melee attacks.
      Warlocks don't need to grapple anyone, that what the other party members are for. And my "overly narrow interpretation" is also the confirmed interpretation by the official sources at Wizards.
      But this argument is pointless, as Jerry has already stated he doesn't care about the rules anyway.

    • Mike Henderson
      Mike Henderson 9 месяцев назад

      Based on your overly narrow interpretation, it makes Hex the most completely useless Warlock spell. Spending a level 1 slot to enhance either a cantrip (eldritch blast) or another lvl 1 spell (witchbolt)...and Warlocks are not going to be grappling anyone.

    • Sergio Le Roux
      Sergio Le Roux 9 месяцев назад

      Havok is correct. An attack is defined as anything that uses an attack roll. Spells that auto-hit, whether they allow for a save for half or no damage don't count (tho they've been ignoring that thru the campaign using magic missile from the cloak) Also, about the disadvantage being only on ability checks and not saving throws, or attacks. It can make escaping grapples slightly more difficult... but they get to choose between Str or Dex for that, so they can use whichever isn't affected by Hex.

    • Havok
      Havok 9 месяцев назад +1

      Mike Henderson dissonant whispers is not an attack because the spell doesnt have an attack roll. it has a saving throw. so it doesnt benefit from the extra damage. its a spell that does damage but that doesnt make it an attack.

      I know. It kinda bothers me how all the lesbian erotica is treated with utmost respect and tastefulness, but any hetero stuff (Rosie and Welvar getting it on) or boy-on-boy action (K'thriss and Kiwi) is never regarded as meaningful or anything more than a joke. It's such a bullshit double-standard.

      A couple things:
      1. It's super cool that read and respond. Genuinely.
      2. I noticed this as well, but genuinely thought that it was K'Thriss forgetting, not Kris.
      3. As enjoyable as that is, the warlock player in me wishes you would take agonizing blast and just start blowing shit up. On the other hand you taught me about shatter, so thanks for that!

      Soruin 9 месяцев назад +15

      I like the idea that every time you remember some extra damage roll it's actually K'thriss struggling out another detail from the dim memories of his patron, and adding it as an after thought. A feathering after-touch.
      So anyone he attacks has a few ticks of extra damage over a few seconds as the little twists resolve. Little Ur-gifts, a nagging itch in the center of their back.

    • Major Pain
      Major Pain 9 месяцев назад +5

      Just thinking... If Donar accidentally tripple critted the Prince and killed him... Could derail the campaign somewhat? Or he'd have to fudge the whole thing and make it out like the Prince has like 300 hit points or something irrational like that? Don't like to railroad the players, but sometimes it's not supposed to go one way and the DM tries to block it like a derraged goallie in a "dark" hockey game.

    • Niffoni
      Niffoni 9 месяцев назад +2

      Carrington. That's actually not a completely crazy idea. Carrington's whole deal was that he was a lush who worked for Dran Enterprises. Spice insinuated that DE were the people who clean up after AcqInc's mess. AcqInc promised to take Carrington with them when they left, but things went pear-shaped, and they ended up leaving him for dead. Again, all completely circumstantial, but he would fit in perfectly with the Six.

    • Jack Gardner

      Niffoni 9 месяцев назад +6

      Same. Also, if he's died before he could potentially be one of The Six, since he was clearly aware of AI, and while diplomatic about it, doesn't seem to have a high opinion. Of course that's pretty circumstantial evidence. I just feel like we're due to hear from them again.

    I was actually waiting for her to confide in someone -- probably K'thriss, maybe Rosie as well -- that her magic is compromised. Even as self-sufficient and private as she is, I'd imagine this would be something she'd share because it could potentially risk the lives of her friends as well as it being something she'd want to focus on correcting.
    I wonder if this would also affect her wild shape in some disturbing way, though she managed spider form alright last game.

      Gaunjee Major 8 месяцев назад

      id prefer to do RP rather than combat in general. I enjoy combat in D&D but it can be so boring unless its a important fight, and not every fight should be important (and I mean in the sense of a boss fight, or a foe that is important to the characters). RP tells story, has character growth, I just find it so much more interesting.
