Re: Aihrdian shopping cities and where to make + weapons, et

Psuedo medieval towns dont usualy have premade goods waiting to be sold. some exceptions of course. Have the player locate a master smith to forge the weapon out of superior quality steel. then locate a spell caster willing to enchant it. The M&T has some guidelines for enchanting items. I would lea...

Re: Customizing Monsters

If you want an orc with 16 hps and an extra attack ...do it. Modify to your hearts content. If the players are happy ,no one else matters. The main reason i can see for upping hps and not hd is saves and bonus to hit. Also dont be afraid to allow monsters to have damage reduction like 3e had. give a...

Re: Stone Skin

This is one of a few spells I DO NOT allow in my game. If it was caster only it would be less of an issue, but it isnt. The special duration means the caster can sit around for days placing this spell on the entire party. Then load up on scrolls of the same spell and go adventure with little damage ...

Re: May have a player doing a monk/barbarian multi-class

Personaly Barbarian is a class your born into. A person who grew up in a fierce tribal society. Monks are pretty much the exact oppisite of a barbarian in my opinion.

However it is your game and your player. do what you think is right and keep everyone happy.

Re: The (un)official "OMG a 5th printing is coming!!" thread

I fail to see where the rules are unstable.

Each printing has had some minor tweaks. I fail to see a couple classes changed and new spells added as rules changes.

Classes, monsters and spells are crunch added to the rules not rules themselves.
I look forward to a new crusade!

High level spells.....

The 8th level cleric spell Mass Heal... is brutal. If you allow healing to damage undead the cleric can top off hps on his entire party and nearly flatten every undead in sight. I would have to say that the cleric should chose to heal friends or harm undead. One or the other not both! A ranged spell...

I have allowed thieves to dex check to use their nimbleness and evasion to skirt meleeing opponents and flank.
