nick: That might have been overkill, you already made it clear this area was super dangerous by saying I had an uncomfortable feeling or something similar. I just wanted to push to see how far I could go! Jun 19, 2020 9:31:15 GMT
red_kangaroo: I think it was quite fairly dangerous, I just got unlucky with several rolls. :) Jun 19, 2020 13:03:06 GMT
Spwack: You can definitely push it! Running is almost always going to be pretty safe, especially if you are about 0hp. Howeverrrrr that doesn't mean things can't chase you Jun 19, 2020 13:09:40 GMT
red_kangaroo: *dangerous but fair, I meant Jun 19, 2020 13:28:48 GMT
Spwack: this is Blerble going on adventures with brand new characters Jun 23, 2020 2:39:24 GMT
red_kangaroo: :D Well I hope not. Jun 23, 2020 6:08:56 GMT
Spwack: The fact that you can have "a gorgon" or "a minotaur" rather than "The Gorgon", "The Minotaur" means it is perfectly acceptable to have "a frankenstein": discuss Jul 7, 2020 8:19:44 GMT
red_kangaroo: I don't see why not! Encounter Critial already has a frankenstein race. Jul 7, 2020 10:42:01 GMT
red_kangaroo: On a similar note, why the hell is a gorgon in D&D a fire-breathing bull and Medusa is used as a name for all gorgons? A fire-breathing bull already has a name in Greek mythology: Khalkotauros. Jul 7, 2020 10:43:34 GMT
catalessi: wasnt the d&d gorgon a metal bull that breathes petrifying gas? in both cases a VERY weird name choice Jul 7, 2020 20:43:09 GMT
garmr: roaming through the wilderness of Scandinavia, you encounter 1d6 Thors Jul 8, 2020 2:37:26 GMT
catalessi: speaking of this how cool would it be to call vampires "draculas"? Jul 8, 2020 22:04:58 GMT
red_kangaroo: Well, there are nosferatu where there was just one Nosferatu... Jul 9, 2020 20:07:06 GMT
Spwack: draculas are specific types of vampires, just like nosferatus are specific types of vampire. Or perhaps they are just vampires at different ages/levels of feeding? A well-fed nosferatu gradually "rehydrates" back into a glossy debonaire dracula Jul 10, 2020 1:10:46 GMT
red_kangaroo: In DCSS, well-fed vampires have no weaknesses and quickly regenerate, plus I imagine they look completely human-like; while starving vampires gain some weaknesses, loose regeneration, but also become way more stealthy. Jul 10, 2020 20:00:36 GMT
red_kangaroo: I like this approach where neither the human, nor the monstrous form of vampire is clearly stronger. Jul 10, 2020 20:01:45 GMT
red_kangaroo: Any ideas for a six letter name for consumable magic items? Trinket or Crystal are a letter too long, Amulet is the right length but doesn't really feel like a consumable... Aug 5, 2020 19:00:37 GMT
Spwack: I'm using Totem atm, for snappable sticks that have an effect Aug 6, 2020 1:54:38 GMT
red_kangaroo: One letter too short. :( I'd like to add some consumables to Wanderer and it would make me feel good to have their name align with Weapon and Armour. :D Aug 6, 2020 6:36:38 GMT
red_kangaroo: But thinking about it now, Potion and Scroll fo have the right number of letters. Aug 6, 2020 7:11:00 GMT
