My group I'm DM'ing for are getting fairly high level (highest level player being level 6) and i'm thinking about sending the group into barovia and play through curse of strahd. Were a 3.5 group and i do like the adventure they written and have begun to rework it for 3.5

That being said after reading through the module I noticed Strahd isn't that evil or unreasonable especially compared with his replacements and some would be "allies" the players can work with. My group is pretty varied in alignments so it's entirely possible they end up working for him (or they split off and do so on their own) and the module says for me to flat out punish them for doing so.

Outside of the opening of the book saying "Strahd is bad and should be hated" what can I do as a GM to make Strahd more compelling to work against without making him become stupid evil? And if players do end up working with him should I let them do so without "punishing" them like the module suggests?

>> No.77908727

You can still make him absolutely hated by the players while still retaining evil cunning and subtlety.

It was to my understanding going over the original module that they didn't emphasize the reasons why the players should hate strahd, He's prideful and the traps in the castle are annoying to parties sure but that doesn't make him anymore unlikeable then any other big bad it's the outside material like I, Strahd and COS that makes it this way. Maybe they do in the 3e rendition (i'm going over it now) and regardless of whether im adapting the COS or not for my version I do want that to be a part of it for the players to be happy they finally killed the bastard but I also want to be smart about this since this isn't strahd's first rodeo against adventurers and he's been playing this game a long ass time.

>> No.77905139

I used to write football recaps, and sometimes you're writing as if in the moment, "he follows his blockers around the right, cuts back, bounces off a tackle. HE COULD GO ALL THE WAY! He scooooores!". But then the next paragraph is where you waited until after the game and to see some defensive stats, and you write it as past tense, "The defense had problems all day. When they were giving too much against the run, the brought their safety into the box, but every time, it seemed that's when the quarterback went over the top to burn them."

You end up going back and forth between past and present tense, and if you are good at what you do, you notice the change and get irritated by it. So you know what? You should just make a note of it at the top, that the tense changes depending on the immersion and emotion, and leave them both. The important and fun thing is that you did it.

I'm not sure, for Kobolds I feel it had to do largely with the lore stating "kobolds shamelessly reproduce" but it also states that their females choose mates based on practical measures rather than lust or love. I don't know if this had any obvious effect when it was released back in 2006 when we didn't have a larger internet presence as we do now or when the Kobold look wasn't so colorful or soft.

some tropes are actually archtypes.
others are media garbage

>> No.77905220

There's room for cliches in an original setting. Original doesn't mean totally unknown and drastically different from all fantastical media. The Elder Scrolls setting might be quite off the wall, but there was still the backstabbing nobility of Daggerfall, the not!Roman Emperor and his legions, the quintessential Paladin character (being a robot from the future is irrelevant), a pantheon of gods, vikings, araby, and many other easily digested bits that are enough for even the most unfamiliar players to make a character for.

Your example is bad. Obviously, but there's a way to compare it to something without being so basic. Let's say you have this complete and total Yharnam ripoff. You'd actually describe it. Sharp spires dot the skyline like the canopy of a pine forest, the streets are fashioned of impressively laid cobblestone and rest far above any natural ground. Laying across the sidewalks are caskets and hearses, most of them strangely empty save for an aroma of death which still lingers. Something like that. It's totally Yharnam, but you don't say Yharnam. It could be Prague during a Plague, or something like that. You just don't say it's Yharnam, because that would make the whole experience feel as shallow as the references you're making.

>> No.77912994

Magic must obey the conservation of energy, if you want to produce a fireball you must find or harvest an equivalent amount of energy from something else. The part that makes it magic is that it can bend or break other physical laws, and doesn't require mechanism or chemical reaction to be produced.
Electricity and means of storing electricity become useful because they can be compact sources of incredibly concentrated energy. So say you're in a siege and you want to ignite the defender's wooden fortifications, or hurl exploding balls of magical napalm over their walls or something like that. Normally what you'll do is start up a huge ass bonfire from which your siege mages can draw their power from, or, once you've figured out electricity, you can use a huge ass battery. Or visa-versa, summon magic from a source to convert it at 100% efficiency into electrical potential, or use the very rare font of natural magical energies to transform into electricity to power civilization, or the reverse, turn huge amounts of natural energy like lightning strikes or forest fires into concentrated magical power.

I kejiggered this into a D&D system with the five core classes being Fighter, Cleric, Rogue, Mage, and Adventurer. Prestige classes were Arcane Archer, Barbarian, Bard, Druid, Monk, Paladin, Ranger, Sorcerer, Spellblade, and Wizard.

Then I made a Kingdom Hearts splat that added the Keyblade Wielder and Dragoon prestige classes. Dragoon was fun as fuck, it’s core mechanic was very simple: any movement you made could be horizontal or vertical. Simple as.

The Kingdom Hearts campaign I ran was fun as Hell, too. I crossed it over with a bunch of non-Disney stuff; the main villain was the Pagemaster, who was also Rasputin.

Anybody has any experience in playing this ? I've been trying to run it as a DM because I needed something quick and easy for tactical combat to run as a boardgamey thing.
However, I've grown steadily more disillusioned with it, and pretty fast. There are some problems I have with the way the game scales, with enemies not scaling and you as a DM only being able to scale the number of enemies to match the powerlevel of the characters (which makes fights extremely long and not particularly fun), but what I really want to talk about is the balance. I've had issues with a player doing two builds, one being a chains of calamity focused ardent and the other being a Hex : Antagonize focused Invoker. Both these builds shit out outrageous amounts of piercing damage, killing normally very durable mobs in two rounds and sometimes even one with party synergies, essentially turning combat into rocket tag. Anybody has ran into these issues with this game ? How did you address them ? I'm this close to giving up on it, it's not very fun the way it is now.

I like to think that they tried to hold things together but without their cult leader they grew dissatisfied, the people became unruly, and eventually a Starfleet mission to check up on them discovered fifteen corpses crammed into the box in a last ditch attempt at maintaining order and discipline. The survivors weren't prosecuted, rather they were given grief counseling because that's the Federation is about mercy, yo. They later heard about these Maquis dudes making a go at the hard life and joined up just two days before Dukat signed the paperwork joining the Dominion and the Maquis were introduced to the Jem'Hadar about 36 hours later.

I mean same net result and there's a lot more steps here, but it's somehow far more satisfying and frankly realistic since few cults of personality can survive the removal of the personality. I mean I heard that one sex cult Nexium or whatever still had the chick from Smallvillle setting up shop near the prison and supposedly former cult members have been rumored to gather there, to be near their glorious prophet, etc etc.

To be fair, when applied reasonably it’s not a bad idea, exposing primitive cultures to 24th century tech before they are ready could result in catastrophic culture shock and trying to affect an internal conflict based on, what? A 5 minute exposition dump and half a day of observation? Yeah, that could easily end with you making things even worse and on top of that drag more star fleet resources to go fixing your ill-informed decision and likely make even more poor decisions in the process. Sometimes it’s just better to let these people work it out themselves and come back when their house is in better order.

It’s really only the episodes where they follow the prime directive dogmatically that it gets infuriating. Especially since better episodes have shown that there is room for discretion in unusual or extreme situations. Like, averting a natural or cosmic disaster that the natives have no way of stopping themselves is one case where risking culture shock is acceptable because then it’s a choice of “altering their civilization” and “watching their entire species go extinct” even more so if the disaster can be averted without direct contact with the locals. Or meddling in a civil war when the participants are actively dragging starfleet into it, like kidnapping starfleet officers or attacking federation freighters. Then you should have some latitude to use your best judgement.

Nice OP, this looks really promising. There aren't a lot of locally stored options for this kind of thing, I'm currently using Zim, which has all the features I could want, but the presentation is pretty lacking. I love the overall layout of the UI and the way pages look with your tool.

Something I feel it is missing (although, I'm basing this on using it for about 5 minutes, so if I'm wrong about anything, my bad) is a lot of text formatting options. Things like bold, italics, etc, but more importantly the ability to change text size to use as paragraph headings. Being able to use bullet points and indentation would be really useful too.

You could make a homebrewed Myconid race that grow exclusively from rotting flesh. They range from the height and size of a dwarf's leg to an ogre, and are composed of the remains that they grew from like a frankenshroom. Fairly weak alone, infact an entire level 3 party could take on the biggest the species has to offer without a problem, but you have to completely destroy the fungus with fire or else they just start breaking off into smaller Myconids.

why isint this in the 5e general?

>> No.77910011

Bouncing off this idea, it has goblins that are tied together, three legged race style. Should any one goblin die or get untied, the Ettin will see it as an enemy.

In addition, clever players can tie themselves together to avoid its wrath.

>> No.77910072

Take something smaller and about the appropriate challenge, switch its abilities for a weaker version of the ettins, and have its little brother visiting.

>> No.77910165

if your fine with the minions being more "tactical" 2-4 hobgoblins would be good minions, they have decent gear and are fairly smart would make sense for them to work with a ettin to accomplish a goal requiring brute force.

>> No.77910581

Do they necessarily have to be his minions?
What if he is hunting something to eat and the party stumbles upon the ettin and some other creature quarreling, and both turn their gaze on the adventurers?
And that way if the ettin gets to be too tough you have a conditional ally in that the thing the ettin was already fighting will spare the party once it realizes it's no threat to it but the ettin still is.

What is your policy towards explaining magic/fantastical elements, powers/abilities or aspects of your setting?

Do you go by with just the "God/Wizard did it, It's fucking magic" line of explanation, or do you try to offer some sort of actually rationalized reasoning to why magical shit happens?

Well, there is this thing called the Reflection, which is a conduit for thoughtforms to become realized in the material world, which allows for the existence of gods and the practice of magic. It was created by an ancient race which also created humanity itself as well as most sapient species in the setting-either directly or through creating their evolutionary ancestors. The Reflection isn't normally easy to access or to use, but on the planet on which my campaign takes place an event made the separation between reality and it very thin, thus creating an environment where spellcasting is possible and various supernatural phenomena occur.
