    It may be typical of the pro-Obama Dungeons & Dragons crowd to disparage a fellow countryman's memory of war from the comfort of mom's basement, but most Americans have the humility and gratitude to respect and learn from the memories of men who suffered on behalf of others.

    this was a staffer!

    the sort of person hired by politicians who don't know how to use the internet!

    In fairness

    McCain hired a whole bunch of people who didn't know what the hell they were talking about.

    This guy just made it blatantly obvious.

    And was subsequently hired by the Washington Post.

    heh

    i'm trying to imagine people debating the hire

    "that guy spouted off something dumb and got a bunch of attention. we need more journalists like that."

    He was hired by the Post. It likely consisted of "We got a call from McCain about him, he's one of us."

    Calastryx preview is amazing.

    A mid-paragon level solo with 3 turns (4 when bloodied) that ends all marked, dominated, stunned, & dazed conditions on the end of its turn.

    Currently DMing: None right now! :(

    Yeah I think it could be contending for strongest monster in 4E. The ability to shed marks like water is what really does it, because the creature becomes eminently mobile as it can punt a defender away and then move somewhere else to attack. Plus the strong ability to stack multiple damaging zones and ultimately being able to blast the entire party potentially with THREE close blast 5 breath weapons in one round is just exceptional damage output.

    The power in ending marks alone though is massive.

    Now that I have an app in for one of Aegeri's games, I'm looking at his posts about monster damage a little... differently.

    How many rounds do defenders in his games usually last? o_O

    Depends on your build and what kind of mark you have. Reading through that thread will give you a clear idea of the general lethality of the games I run. Generally speaking, I tend to try to spread as much damage out as possible and down defenders to break marks. Once I break a mark the creatures try to run rampant over anyone else (if possible). Defending at the moment is about picking fights with what you can handle - not marking as many enemies as possible and hoping for the best (which by far was the best pre-MM3 strategy).

    I also tend to defy marks a lot as well. If Mr. Stabby is on a billion HP and hasn't been touched, while Mr. Squishy is standing there nearly bleeding to death I will normally take a poke at Mr. Squishy if the monster is intelligent enough (or just furious enough) to do that. My tactics really vary a lot depending on what the monsters general goals are and what kind of creatures you're fighting.

    Overall both Aegis (Dark Prophecy) and Unexpected Monkey (Builders Cry) have been doing pretty good jobs. Unexpected went unconscious and took a ton of damage in Builder's Cry, but successfully held the Tembos attention for the entire combat for example. It is not unusual to have multiple naps in an encounter before the healer gets around to healing you.

    Edit: New thread time. This one has had its run and it's time for him to go to the great land of beyond as he disappears off the forums recent posts tab forever. You will be missed Mr. Thread. You will be missed.

    Anybody know what happened to that? Is it still coming?

    Pretty excited, myself and some guys I work with are starting up a weekly D&D group, designing our own custom setting. A bit Lord of the Rings heavy, but also some cool twists. Like Arcane magic is really rare and only one mage is born to any generation. We plan on making him a character in the group, tasking ourselves with his protection and education.

    Then we recruited someone who's never played D&D at all. Perfect fit, a character who is meant to be totally out of his depth matched with a player to suit!

    I thought I'd check up on the thread as I haven't had it bookmarked for a while. Were there really no posts between June and now? O.o

    I was going to ask if there'd been any updates for Beastmasters or Blackguards. Or anything cool for that matter.

    Oh, I just responded to a necropost, didn't I.

    Rius on

    Woops, my bad, sorry. How did I overlook the newer one? In my defense, this one isn't at 99 pages.

    Move along people, nothing to see here.
