Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I had a dream about rolling a new character, a Svirfneblin Artificer (Alchemist) who got over his sunlight sensitivity by spamming Smoke Bombs for cover, whether or not any allies were in the radius.

    I just wanted to let you all know, he is not going into the character file as a possible replacement if Tusk dies. Especially because, now that I'm awake and looking at the Svirfneblin stats, I see that they don't actually have sunlight sensitivity like Drow or Duergar do, so his whole dumb schtick would be pointless.

    Well, sure, you know that, and (now) we know that.
    But, does the Svirfneblin know that? Maybe he grew up with insanely overprotective parents that warned him that if he ever went out into the sun he'd catch fire and the drow would drag him screaming down into Menzoberranzan, torture him for fun and then feed him to their giant spiders. So, he built his first smoke bombs and experimented with them, discovered he didn't catch fire while under their cover and decided that was science enough for him.

    Sounds reasonable enough.

    One of his Artificer magic items would be a Tinfoil Helm that grants resistance to Psionic damage and advantage on saves vs. Enchantment spells, in that case.

    Seems like a good time for a Beach Episode. Tusk's gonna go school some teens at volleyball. Maybe have Angus back him up. Just the two of them standing right next to the net, looking over the top of it, with their giant hands in the air providing an impenetrable screen.

    I had an ongoing thing in my Planescape game where I'd schedule a combat against Giant Sharks and then promptly remember how insanely fucking murderous they are and bump them down to Hunter sharks. Happened what, 3/4 times?

    Like the time I made an encounter with 4 Ropers.

    Sounds good! Next Week: The party takes a trip with Captain Drake Rackstorm to run away from a demon-summoning dwarf who probably wants to super kill them!
