Rush 3 ST Jan20. 1st listen. Okay, this was not what I was expecting; more of a hard rock sound with moments of Led Zeppelin. I liked opener, Find My Way and it even had an ACDC-like riff in there. Need Some Love is everything I love about Led Zeppelin, all wrapped up in under 3 minutes. :) Take a Friend is cool and the vocal style reminds me of Slaughter. Here Again has some good guitar highlights and What You're Doing has a cool groove to it. I love the solo in In the Mood too. The distorted and short riffing in Before and After must have been some odd guitar-playing for its time? So, I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected. Anyone that liked the big rock of the early 70s would find something here. A good start. 4/5

OK. I am not sure yet. Not sure what is going on with Lou and her sister at this stage.

But if I am coming down and there's no chance of a game b/c others are going to both, I reckon I might too. I was initially a no b/c I thought it was a different weekend. ;)

Good to know. Like Shane, I don't email out much anymore (except for work).

Angus and I will just get some takeaway/drive-thru on the Saturday night, given I don't know when we will be there, unless you want to do pizzas that night and have them there when we arrive?

Just letting people know I changed my email in the side nav bar.

Slowly trying to change everything over to my Gmail a/c.

I might have been a little optomistic with my arrival time Saturday night. It could even be later than 8pm. We'll see.

I don't think you need to be taking anything off most classes, if you're looking to encourage people putting scores into INT. I don't see it as such a bad thing if we have a few more proficiencies out there.

As you say, there's no other side benefits to INT apart from proficiencies. Maybe the only classes to reduce the number of others would be classes that already have INT as their primary stat, because that's basically a guarantee that they'll get more, it's not required as encouragement for putting INT there.

Re: Intelligence (& Skills) by blairosblairos, 16 Jan 2020 23:00

Okay, I am in the process of writing up a bunch of characters and some thing is really bothering me. This is something I have vented on before and I have thought a LOT about.

Why did 5E remove the number of skill proficiencies based on INT modifier from the game? There is absolutely NO reason to take INT in 5E except for Wizards (and now Artificers). It does not have any secondary benefits like practically every other ability.

A house rule I would LOVE to bring back is skills based on INT mod. These would have to be fairly restricted as we already have means of getting extra proficiencies, but could easily state they can be spent on languages too.

If I was to do this, I would simply adjust for every class. Instead of just saying you get 3 it would be 1 or 2 (depending on class) + INT mod. It is not a big change to make to each of our class pages. Our number of proficiencies is already out of whack to normal characters anyway.

A specific example. Artificers get 2 proficiencies. Not many. INT is also their primary stat. So I would just say they get skills = to INT mod (minimum of one).
Specific eg 2. Rangers get 3 proficiencies. They don't normally need INT and are known for their skills, so I would just say 3 + INT mod worth of skills.
Sepcific example 2. Bards choose any 3 skills. More choice. I would encourage bards to have some INT too. So I would drop it one and say 2 + INT mod.

I just want INT to count for SOMETHING for all characters.

Thoughts?

Re: Jan' 2020 - All Welcome by PadraicEPadraicE, 16 Jan 2020 08:57

The main reason I like to use the forums for organising games (apart from keeping all discussion in one spot) is so that players from our other games can see what I/we are up to.

So, if there are any Wyche players interested in joining us for this weekend (Sat night, Sunday) feel free to. Always like guest players. We don't have 9 players in the Ballarat group either :P

Yeah, will do. I figured this was a good opportunity to test a lot of this stuff out. Someone who knows a bit about D&D already, but hasn't been immersed in this like we have for the past… forever.
