What does 420chan think of the new Wastes and Colorless mana? If you don't know about the change, it's explained here: http://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/kozilek-wastes-and-the-new-colorless-mana

I think it's stupid.

>how does this guy have 25AC
the multiclass character has just that. full plate and a shield and the spells shield/shield of faith and decent saves, but that's it, he has really nothing else going for him. he likes to try out magic item combo's and see how he can utilise them. he isn't really creative with his spells though.

>How often do you let these guys rest?
one long rest since they've entered the tomb, at the end of the session. I knew I was doing this wrong so I had withers come and tell some lore and brag about his traps and how he allowed them to rest as a "reward" for managing to actually clear the first floor, while also gently not so gently telling them they won't easily find their rest next time.

>If you're going easy on them with traps you're probably letting them go easy
oh no, those traps are far too much fun for me. the players know this, they see me smile behind the screen when something triggers and the looks I get when I tell them what happens are priceless! it's mostly the combat encounters they have no problems with, migitating danger from the traps alot of the time

I also have the shadow from near the entrance following them which the players haven't figured out yet. I plan to ambush them at an opportune moment. I think the rotating trap room on floor 3 will make a nice spot for an ambush.

The monsters know is good. I'd read for the monsters you're running but if you ever write your own shit give it a go. Even if you don't memorise every entry it changes the way you approach monsters and fights. The basic assumptions of "they know what they're doing" because most of them are either evolved with those abilities and do it instinctively or they are sentient and in most cases are used to combat and gets you in the mindset of actually using the abilities they have properly.

I ran goblins last night and the players chewed them up, but most of the characters lost a lot of HP on several fights (one got downed once and reduced to 2hp another time, the final boss wasn't horrendous but everyone was below half HP and out of resources by the end). I had the giant rats using pack tactics, the goblins running to cover to hide and that sort of thing and this was a party who didn't let anyone escape and warn the other groups until they were in the base they even captured and interrogated one of the goblins on the patrol they found then refused to let him off to warn the enemies. They found his name, grew attached, then let him free hoping he'd help them. He decided to backstab them but was shot dead running to join his tribe, mostly because it made sense in the circumstances but also because it was funnier that way. If they'd been any less thorough or stealthy there'd have been ambushes waiting everywhere.

Shadows are good because they attack stats (and one that most parties, though possibly not yours, dumps). This makes them really fucking nasty regardless of level. Be wary of turn undead so maybe during another fight (so it ruins the cleric's action economy) or it grabs someone more than 30 feet away from the cleric.

Oh and remember tanky mctankface is probably going to be ignored. He's tough but as long as he's not in attack of opportunity range he's the least threatening. This isn't an MMO where you have defensive stance or your armour increases your aggro generation. If he's grabbed sentinel or can hold chokepoints that's good, but if not he can only hold one enemy at a time. And that assumes they even care about his attack of opportunity. If he pulls out a wand of fireballs of course it's all change.

I was thinking about getting into magic the gathering. I have no idea how to start and i don't really know any people who'd play it with me but i guess there are a lot of meetings/tournaments?

How do i get into MTG and is it worth it?

Kinda late, but heres how I got into MTG 2 years ago:

I watched this on Vice and my curiousity was piqued: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Plr81gaUIr0

Next, I was able to convince a buddy to get into MTG with me. We then proceeded to go to our local walmart and bought a Duel Deck and a few random packs. We used the internet to learn the rules and subtleties of the game. We each chose "colors" and started building decks around those colors. Every week we would meet up on sunday mornings, get high af and play magic for a few hours. Everytime he would destroy my decks I would go back to the drawing board and retool my decks to counter his decks. Eventually we started building more decks and expanded into different formats (standard, modern, commander). We still get together once every week or two and play MTG but we stick to commander mostly (standard got too expensive and we weren't going to FNM so we didnt care).

My advice to you if your going to play paper magic, find a friend and do your thing for a little bit and then go to a LGS. The LGS that i first went to was super supportive giving us free starter decks, sleeves and they even assessed my deck and taught me about the mana curve. Avoid spending money on expensive cards when you're a beginner because you want to LEARN before you start investing in expensive products.

Good luck dude!

This guy is right.

I started at a FNM with some jank ass deck that I went 1 win with and lost all the rest because I didn't know how to really play.

Then I started getting into commander which is really fucking fun because you can pull some shit out your ass and really play.

Seriously, if you get into paper magic, Commander is the way to go. Modern/Vintage is about who spends the most money or who started playing back when to collect those cards, and Standard is usually a meta game that is also expensive. Commander is just bring your 100 card deck and hope it works out in the end while having a grand ole time.

find 3 friends and grab yourselfs 4 of the commander premade decks.
those are the most complex but also most fun games in all formats.

Plenty of flashy rogues. There's a swashbuckler subclass. Rogues are cunning and use clever shortcuts and underhanded tactics to get the job done. I don't want to post Jack Sparrow because that would make me some sort of tumblr posting 30 year old womanchild but that would be a good show off rogue.

Rogues love to show off though. It's just
>I'll cast invisibility, put on the boots of spider climb, walk through the orc camp, dump poison into the well and then stroll back out

Usually, rather than LOOK AT MY FLAIR. Or when they crit and you have to go raise a family while they roll all the sneak attack dice.

Yeah I'm playing 5th though and that gives rogues lots of abilities to avoid damage as long as they're smart. They have limited but powerful damage mitigation and high mobility, so as long as they don't get bogged down they tend to survive fights. They also fare well against most aoe spells because the majority are dex saves.

I missed my last weeks game session because of insomnia and blew off yesterdays to get high, after which I crashed at 5PM and woke up at noon. The DM said he'd kick anybody who missed two game sessions.

Also, I'm banned from 4chan for a month for posting "How do you hotwire a car? I want to drive my neighbors ferrari into a ditch" on DIY, which makes no sense cause I made a hilarious post about a monkey with an infected dong and only got banned for 3 days the same night.

Fuck this person, a real DM makes the game for the players. When they start to act like it's your job to be a "good player" and not their job to be a "good DM" than that's a warning sign you are playing with a narcissistic piece of shit.

I'm sorry if this is the only game you can get but if it causes such bad vibes than cut it off like a rotten limb. Shit DMs lend to the mockery and disgust normals feel towards this scene. It's our duty to mock them, shun them and drive them out.
