Announcements and Notices / Re: The Gaping Wound - New Opening Hours!

(( The Gaping Wound will be closed this Monday and Wednesday. ))
Just recalled another idea that I had talked to others about in the past:

Making the nights scarier, maybe having the roaming werewolves and monster spawns in Barovia scale in power to the amount/level of the players in that zone. It would go a great deal toward selling the atmosphere and making sure that people don't just stop fearing the night once they're level five or so.

Hey Salty Tears,

If you need to use it, I would suggest making a request here and or pinging in the DM channel in game by typing /dm.

If you just need a port to fix your levels or something they're usually happy to accommodate and quick too.

Since my Bio was too long for Ingame, figured I'd throw it on here.

The figure before you seems the apt description of any Ravenloft citizen at first glance, garbed in dark clothing with a hood pulled close about his features and a despondant look upon his face. Upon further inspection there is a bit more to this pale man. His face is handsome beneath the hood, but it is marred by trace evidence of combat. A large wound long since healed stretches from the bottom of his right earlobe - or what is left of it - across his cheek, and then down along his top and bottom lips. He seems to be constantly repositioning the orientation of his lips and mouth, it seems more of a nervous tic than of relation to the wound itself. And then you notice another of these tics, His eyes are constantly darting about at the slightest sound, as if he's constantly hearing a whisper just beyond the edge of perception. He does well to hide it when he does notice you, knowing full well someone in this place may take it more for something unnatural than a wound of emotional trauma.

He often keeps himself bundled up in robes of grey and black and tightly wound about himself, his form is rather thin, almost sickly looking. Strapped to his back is a greatsword, the wooden haft is filled with strange carvings, likely made by the wielder himself judging by their errant quality. And beneath his robes you also believe you can spy a quiver although the bow must be beneath his cloak somewhere. He may be wearing other weaponary at and given time, such as a shortsword or bastard sword strapped to his hip. Should he be wearing his Greatsword - (Locals may recognize it) it has the makings of a house sigil although it would be hard to remember where you saw it. Some lowly noble family that had likely been long since put to ground.

He has a small satchel just off of his hip, the contents would be hard to determine but you think you can hear the jingle of a coinpurse... (Opportunity for Thieves/Pickpockets if LFRP If interested,

His shoes are dark brown Leather and laced well up his shins. He has a pair of rather simple black cotton pants and a belt with several small vials at his waist.
Apart from that, the cloaks he wears obscure most of his other trappings and garments, save for those two shards of eldritch green from beneath his hood.

I think arguing that the dire crocodile is superior to elemental shape is also silly. Especially for a 20th level druid with elder forms.

1) you get sneak and crit immune
2) higher ac
3) Using elemental shape doesn't take away from feat charge uses.
4) Damage reduction
To put it in perspective my druid doesn't even have this shape as I feel while they are unique and great for rp, there are better uses for a druids feats.

ECL 3 on a monk sounds like the answer to the question, "What is POTM hard mode?"

I had a Zenthryi monk, which is an ECL +3 and frankly I shelved him as soon as he hit level 3, I will be the first to admit I do not know how the ECL system works, but it seemed to more take the same experience and time to level from 2 - 3 that an ordinary character would take to level from 6-7.

That Zenthryi is gone, unfortunately he couldn't keep up with his companions and ended up falling behind so significantly that he was mechanically useless. I now play an Aasimar, which is ECL +2 and admittedly, its easier, but my view has been colored by playing a Zenthryi. I concur with FellowMan.

I've had an Aasimar for 20 months, and she is 8th level. In the last year I've played her pretty much only because of trying to support DM plots or because other players contacted me about events they wanted to run, and I tried to help them. Partly this is because I enjoy playing good alignment more than being an antagonist, but it's also because she is very much RP only. I can't recall her ever being in an adventuring party, and the number of dungeon runs she has made solo or with one other PC I could count on one hand.

She currently is powerful enough to be interesting (particularly when under the influence of Voracious), but because of her lack of experience in combat situations, I would doubt I'd use her effectively. (For example, I had to refresh my memory the other day of what one of her two domains does.) Her inventory is a constant mess because of this style of play, too. That is, RP XP is far more time-consuming than dungeoning, and leaves little time for housekeeping.

Obviously, devoting more time to her would help, but I think even she were good aligned so that I enjoyed playing her more, it would just be that much more frustrating to see all this unrealized potential of trying to run a race in leg irons.

As I've seen this subject come up many times and nothing change , I don't think there's a lot of point in commenting or making suggestions. But as the OP asked for personal experience, here you go :D

Agree 100% with this entire post.  Unfortunately the consensus often seems to be that this is more or less irrelevant, as you take these races for the roleplay opportunity they provide.
