If an item claims to be useful for a purpose but is in fact not, then that deception ought to be removed -- even if the reason why they aren't useful is due to circumstance (lack of vulnerable...

BYOBattleship: naval combat sim + ship designer

This is wildly off-topic for these forums, but I wanted to share a project I've been working on recently, and hope to continue to work on for awhile. It's a videogame, an arcadey naval combat sim...

This feels weird to me; spells shouldn't have negative durations and I expect newbies will have trouble figuring out that the spell still has utility even if it doesn't confer a temporary buff. Hell,...

People disagree about the exact definition, but pretty much it just comes down to damage. You want to be doing as much damage per turn as possible. The faster you deal damage, the shorter the fight...

If I recall correctly, the limit is 20 pounds for mages and 30 pounds for other arcane casters. Your SP also gets cut much more drastically if you're an arcane caster and you wear gloves that do not...

What if Escaping had no stat modifiers, and the "terrified" flag automatically conveyed +X speed? That would effectively mean that the two rings would not stack.

It's always bugged me that those...

I'm pretty sure I've seen ladder wins with character levels lower than 40. At level 40 with max CON you get 40*12.5=500 HP from CON, which means you need 2.5 HP per level from your hit dice to be out...

Maybe call it "Remove Hunger"? Doesn't really help with taking your satiation down but it's more clearly less filling than "Satisfy".
