    Also it's a fictional story. Shit just works. It's like how you don't worry about going to the bathroom in an RPG.
  • Surly JawaThu Aug 31, 2023 7:28 am
    Are peeps gathering Friday?
  • GForce1Thu Aug 31, 2023 8:42 am
    I'm around and not sick! Well not with a cold, private kinks are still there.
  • DainejirThu Aug 31, 2023 8:46 am
    Sure
  • Jobi-Wan-KenobiThu Aug 31, 2023 6:54 pm
    I'll be there, have to be in Warwick for a TSA precheck then I'll be over.
  • GForce1Fri Sep 01, 2023 9:05 am
    Bring your own gloves. Don't count on them to have protection.
  • Boromir the RussianFri Sep 01, 2023 4:56 pm
    I’m going to be late, have to get car from the dealership and Lyft never showed up after an hour…
  • Surly JawaSun Sep 03, 2023 8:22 am
    Thanks everyone for coming to the party! Wish I could have seen more of you guys, sorry about disappearing through most of it.
  • GForce1Tue Sep 05, 2023 2:53 pm
    Thanks for the invite Lou. I hope Bailey is doing ok.
  • GForce1Thu Sep 07, 2023 4:44 pm
    Rob going to clap some cheeks and come up with an adventure tomorrow?
  • DainejirThu Sep 07, 2023 5:25 pm
    No I will leave my pants on this week. I will be home around 5 if people want to hang out or come up with a better plan
  • The OG BozarkThu Sep 07, 2023 8:18 pm
    See y'all tomorrow. I can bring some boardgames if you want
  • Surly JawaFri Sep 08, 2023 9:27 am
    Going to be late today, probably around 6:30 pm as I have to pick up chairs in south kingstown.
  • Surly JawaFri Sep 08, 2023 9:28 am
    The fam is all heading to Connecticut Ren Faire tomorrow if anyone wants to join. They serve alchohol now!
  • The OG BozarkFri Sep 08, 2023 4:37 pm
    I was there on Monday and it was surprisingly excellent.
  • Boromir the RussianFri Sep 08, 2023 4:59 pm
    I am going to skip today. I just got home after driving all over Mass and RI looking for a cheap used car for my in-laws, I think I put on good 150-200 miles and cannot bear getting into the car again and dealing with stupid drivers. The fun part will be figuring out how we can bring the car to RI from the donation center by Wed for which we need to have RI plates, but DMV requires in-person visit by appointment only and currently has zero openings next week… how I hate red tape and bureaucracy…

    That is the video I mentioned last night. I thought it was interesting to have on while I painted.
  • Jobi-Wan-KenobiSat Sep 09, 2023 8:45 pm
    Sorry I missed today's adventure to the Ren fair!
  • Jobi-Wan-KenobiSat Sep 09, 2023 8:47 pm
    Also Val, you have I believe 5 days from the date of sale to register the car so technically you can drive the car to where ever you need in that time.
  • Boromir the RussianTue Sep 12, 2023 9:41 pm
    That place was shady, we decided not to buy the car after all. Still having no luck elsewhere like on Craigslist. If you know of any old cars in the $5K range, let me know…

    HeroQuest sounds like a good time to me, I'm down.
  • Jobi-Wan-KenobiThu Sep 14, 2023 7:41 pm
    Lou did you make a YouTube video on D&D races? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSId4-ZfC1k
  • Boromir the RussianTue Sep 19, 2023 8:14 am
    Another interesting video on improving D&D boss fights from Lou’s doppelgänger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwmRNU5pDjs
  • The OG BozarkWed Sep 20, 2023 8:48 pm
    Joe was right: y'all need to watch America the Motion Picture asap
  • Boromir the RussianThu Sep 21, 2023 8:35 am
    I keep watching more videos from that D&D shorts guy that looks like Lou and I had no idea how terrible Wizards of the Coast were and how close they came to ruining D&D and Magic…
  • Boromir the RussianThu Sep 21, 2023 8:38 am
    Also, another thing that came up from the D&D shorts dude was about being able to do two Sneak attacks per turn via opportunity attacks with Rogue multiclassing to Fighter and taking Reposte feat. I don’t get it, as even if you do an opportunity attack that is still part of a turn, either the turn you just attacked with, or would count towards your upcoming turn when you attack, so if you used Sneak for opportunity damage, you should not be able to do that when attack on your turn, am I wrong?
  • Surly JawaThu Sep 21, 2023 9:48 am
    I don't think any DM would let their players even if it was legit. As a player its not fun if you have one player so overpowered it outshines the rest.
  • Boromir the RussianThu Sep 21, 2023 5:39 pm
    That makes sense, thanks, Lou
  • GForce1Thu Sep 21, 2023 9:21 pm
    Thats not legit. Maybe it would give you a second chance to sneak attack if you missed the first time but even then is dubious.
  • Surly JawaFri Sep 22, 2023 1:08 pm
    Was a little curious on how they were trying to get around wording with sneak attack hack. Technically you can sneak attack on your turn, your turn ends, its the enemies turn you use a reaction on the enemies turn and get another sneak attack. No DM would allow it but its a technicality. You loose levels to pull it off and have to hit so even if it were allowed ,why would you
  • The OG BozarkFri Sep 22, 2023 2:09 pm
    I'm not gonna be around tonight, messed up my back at the gym
  • GForce1Fri Sep 22, 2023 2:38 pm
    Huh. I'd see it as all being one turn. There's an order to actions by initiative. Maybe I think of the round/turn the wrong way.
  • Boromir the RussianFri Sep 22, 2023 3:38 pm
    I agree with Gio, I see a turn as all characters take actions and all enemies take actions (characters can take reactions but not other actions), and the next turn is when characters take actions again, so either way a reaction would be part of the same turn or the next turn, but it cannot be its own turn…
  • DainejirFri Sep 22, 2023 4:06 pm
    Feel better Brian
  • The OG BozarkFri Sep 22, 2023 8:51 pm
    Thanks Rob. At least someone cares
  • GForce1Sat Sep 23, 2023 3:53 pm
  • Boromir the RussianMon Sep 25, 2023 7:36 pm
    Oh we all care, Brian, we just all have full confidence in your recovery abilities unlike Rob. If it’s your lower back, I had good experience with acupuncture mats to lay on and use a tennis ball to roll on as well as doing some opposite back stretches I can show you whenever we hang out next. I’ll see if I can find some on YouTube

  • Boromir the RussianWed Sep 27, 2023 7:41 am
    I know this double bag of holding and double find familiar combo to destroy anything sounds great, but if I were a DM I would definitely forbid it, it just ruins any combat… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpcTRROgth0
  • Jobi-Wan-KenobiWed Sep 27, 2023 8:43 am
    Happy birthday Val!
  • GForce1Wed Sep 27, 2023 2:07 pm
    I'd ignore most of what you see and read online when it comes to D&D. It's usually people trying to min max so hard they break the game. There are rules that most people follow. As a DM you can bend them a bit if you want to do something cool or if the players have an out there idea. Making bag of holding bombs is fucking ridiculous.
  • DainejirWed Sep 27, 2023 5:04 pm
    Happy birthday val!
  • Surly JawaWed Sep 27, 2023 6:19 pm
    Happy Bday Val

    Thank you gents, I am overloaded with cake at the moment, it has been hard to breathe since last night…

    For those that lift and exercise, basically Brian and Joe, there is a big sale at Dick’s - https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/f/sale

    And there's big dicks at sales?
  • Surly JawaFri Sep 29, 2023 9:58 am
    I won't see you folks tonight but might see some of you at Vals party tomorrow. Val small chance we can't make it due to sick kids but we will see how they and my parents are doing.
  • DainejirFri Sep 29, 2023 1:03 pm
    Yeah just a casual hangout tonight if anyone is around
  • Boromir the RussianFri Sep 29, 2023 3:27 pm
    @Joe I would not know anything about big dicks…
  • Boromir the RussianFri Sep 29, 2023 3:28 pm
    I was planning on coming tonight but now dealing with kids issues and planning and might have to skip
  • The OG BozarkFri Sep 29, 2023 4:42 pm

  • GForce1Sat Sep 30, 2023 4:25 pm

    My eye, Gio…

    Huh, hope everyones feeling better. Anyone around tonight?
  • Boromir the RussianFri Oct 06, 2023 3:57 pm
    I hurt my back playing soccer last night so I am not driving anywhere. Brian, if you still have back pain, turns out all my exercises I knew before are not helping much, so I’ve been using acupuncture pad on my lower back when sitting, which is helping. And doing basic stretches like these ones - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wAw1-1 ... Nlcw%3D%3D
  • Surly JawaFri Oct 06, 2023 4:04 pm
    Feel better folks, hope to catch you all next week then!
  • Jobi-Wan-KenobiSat Oct 07, 2023 6:59 am
    Hope you guys all feel better soon!
  • Boromir the RussianSun Oct 08, 2023 12:59 am
    Sorry, Brian, another set of lower back exercises, these take up less time and only five of them but more effective I think as they actually strengthen, not just stretch, though it is a Russian guy talking so you may need to read subtitles - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBtJiXL__ag
  • Boromir the RussianTue Oct 10, 2023 11:11 am

    I won't be around this Friday to assist with HQ testing. Also my apologies for drunken shenanigans last friday. I was really off my rocker that night.

    Like I said last week. I'm out for this Friday.
  • Boromir the RussianThu Oct 26, 2023 10:15 pm

    I want to run a 5E module for the kids and Audrey to teach them DnD, do you guys have any level 1 - 3 physical modules I can borrow?
  • Jobi-Wan-KenobiFri Nov 03, 2023 3:36 pm
    Sure, I can bring some tonight
  • Boromir the RussianThu Nov 09, 2023 8:36 am
    Whenever we get to Brian’s one-shots next, I am going to make a Fighter/Sorcerer combo 5th level character to bring. His name will be Boomstick and he will make lots of booms…
  • Surly JawaThu Nov 09, 2023 12:52 pm
    Just curious why not warlock or eldritch knight? Those are fighter/sorcerer classes, I mean Im all about min/min go for it!
  • GForce1Thu Nov 09, 2023 5:37 pm
    Be careful with multi-classing. You will grow slowly at both classes as opposed to going a single class route. Why sorceror/fighter?
  • Surly JawaThu Nov 09, 2023 6:46 pm
    Val got me thinking I would like to try playing dwarven melee warlock. Medium armor, greataxe power attack
  • Boromir the RussianFri Nov 10, 2023 2:10 pm
    I probably would not play a multiclass build over a long campaign with leveling into double digit levels but for one shot type stuff, it would be fun to try. With this build I get 1 level of Fighter for shield, armor, weapon proficiency and Blindfighting, and then get into Shadow Sorcery and casting Darkness and blade fighting.
  • Boromir the RussianFri Nov 10, 2023 2:11 pm
    @brian, do I get any money to buy any equipment besides what is given at 1st level for your one-shot or go with the basics only? I’m good either way
  • GForce1Fri Nov 10, 2023 10:48 pm
    I think that we're taking this further than just a one shot. We are almost at the end of the module Brian brought for last time.
  • Boromir the RussianSat Nov 11, 2023 12:00 am
    It’s fine, I was only going to take a single level of fighter so will be mostly a sorcerer
  • Boromir the RussianThu Nov 16, 2023 6:51 am
    So, we doing Brian’s D&D adventure tomorrow? I’m getting my sorcerer’s spells ready… I rolled like crap on the hit points but at least I rolled better on the initial ability scores. Good thing I started as a fighter or I would have like 20HP…
  • DainejirThu Nov 16, 2023 8:04 am
    I'm pretty sick at the moment so I will likely not be around tomorrow. I can leave the books and stuff out for pickup if someone else wants to host
  • Boromir the RussianThu Nov 16, 2023 3:29 pm
    Oh no, hope you feel better, Rob! We don’t want to catch what you have, so probably safer not to visit Rob’s house tomorrow…
  • GForce1Fri Nov 17, 2023 7:32 am
    I'm just turning the corner on my second URI since August. I'd like to avoid getting sick again. I hope it wasn't me who infected you Rob.

  • GForce1Tue Nov 21, 2023 9:18 am
    Still clearing out a bit of mucus from my lungs. I've got a painting day planned with my nephews on Friday so I won't be around.
  • Surly JawaFri Nov 24, 2023 8:06 am
    We gathering at Ye Old Robs tonight?
  • DainejirFri Nov 24, 2023 9:32 am
    I'm free and can host, I know Joe and Gio are out
  • Boromir the RussianFri Nov 24, 2023 12:38 pm
    I’m most likely out today with family
  • GForce1Wed Nov 29, 2023 4:00 pm
    I'll be there at Robs this week.
  • Boromir the RussianWed Nov 29, 2023 10:08 pm
    I will be there too. I am thinking maybe I should rebuild my fighter (1 level) / sorcerer (4 levels) into a Paladin/Sorcerer build for Brian’s D&D…
