    [–] What's the funniest way you spoiled a important plot element in your campaign. Mackinz 2 points ago in DnD

    I think in this case (referring to the person I originally responded to), the DM was unaware of how spells worked and decided that non-concentration spells interrupt concentration spells somehow, revealing the zombie.

    [–] What's the funniest way you spoiled a important plot element in your campaign. Mackinz 1 points ago in DnD

    Copying from Roll20:

    Concentration

    Some spells require you to maintain concentration in order to keep their magic active. If you lose concentration, such a spell ends.

    If a spell must be maintained with concentration, that fact appears in its Duration entry, and the spell specifies how long you can concentrate on it. You can end concentration at any time (no action required).

    Normal activity, such as moving and attacking, doesn’t interfere with concentration. The following factors can break concentration:

    • Casting another spell that requires concentration. You lose concentration on a spell if you cast another spell that requires concentration. You can’t concentrate on two spells at once.
    • Taking damage. Whenever you take damage while you are concentrating on a spell, you must make a Constitution saving throw to maintain your concentration. The DC equals 10 or half the damage you take, whichever number is higher. If you take damage from multiple sources, such as an arrow and a dragon’s breath, you make a separate saving throw for each source of damage.
    • Being incapacitated or killed. You lose concentration on a spell if you are incapacitated or if you die.

    The GM might also decide that certain environmental phenomena, such as a wave crashing over you while you’re on a storm--tossed ship, require you to succeed on a DC 10 Constitution saving throw to maintain concentration on a spell.

    [–] Trump = Racist = Simple. Mackinz 2 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    The onus of proof always falls upon those making the claim, t_d shitposter. You can scream to the high heavens about Obama this, Obama that, but Obama didn't put that Confederate flag in your hand or make you proudly march with neo-nazis, neo-confederates and other racist pieces of shit in Charlottesville.

    [–] Trump = Racist = Simple. Mackinz 1 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    I am fairly certain it is a variation of Stockholm Syndrome, where instead of being held captive physically, they are held captive psychologically.

    [–] President Obama wore a TAN SUIT to a press conference?? Impeach now. Mackinz 2 points ago in PoliticalHumor

    I'm sure whatever FAF is totally justifies selling your country out to the Russians while an orange blob steals taxpayer money through his extravagant golf course spending.

    Right? Totally something a "conservative" such as yourself would delude themselves to believe.

    About halfway through I somehow forgot that invisibility required concentration and cast fireball.

    It does... Fireball doesn't. Why would casting a non-concentration spell prevent you from holding concentration on Invisibility? It's literally RAW to let you cast non-concentration spells while concentrating.

    [–] Fox News Mocked For Praising Trump's Kim Jong Un Meeting After Slamming Obama's Willingness To Talk With 'Dictators' Mackinz 1 points ago in politics

    You're gonna heal a divide by just labeling a primary source of information for a large number of people as a domestic terrorist organization?

    It's the first step in an arduous de-programming. We have to start somewhere and cutting the main driver of the problem out of the situation would help.

    Where would you start?

    [–] Fox News Mocked For Praising Trump's Kim Jong Un Meeting After Slamming Obama's Willingness To Talk With 'Dictators' Mackinz 5 points ago in politics

    It should be a big yes from anyone who wants to heal the divide in this country by eliminating the primary source of disinformation that Republicans depend upon to create their alternative facts dimension.

    [–] I just noticed what the material components of the Heat Metal spell are. Mackinz 2 points ago in DnD

    Find Familiar's components both are consumed and have a cost, so you technically can't use your component pouch for it.

    ...

    EDIT: Though I suppose the brazier is technically not consumed nor does it have a specified cost... As a DM I'd rule that you need to find an actual brazier (or something similar) to burn the costly consumed material components.

    ...

    SageAdvice:

    The 10 gp of other components need to be burned in something, brazier or not.

    [–] I need help convincing a friend's religious mother that I'm not teaching him satan worship Mackinz 1 points ago in DnD

    Tell her Satanists are far friendlier and more true to the Biblical teachings of Christ than any Evangelical such as herself.

    Oh, and freedom of and from religion is a constitutional right allotted to all those living in the United States of America.

    [–] Trump says he’ll punish ‘the people of Canada’ because of Trudeau’s news conference Mackinz 3 points ago in politics

    Americans : how the fuck is this piece of shit not impeached already? How is he not at single digit approval?

    One word:

    Republicans.

    They basically live in another dimension, yet vote in ours.

    And what if a hypothetical Int-focused Barbarian archetype added Int to damage rolls while raging, reducing the need for raw Strength.

    [–] What Are Some Roleplaying Niches That Haven'y Been Covered Officially? Mackinz 41 points ago in DnD

    A Barbarian who has incentive to not dump Intelligence.

    More archetypes that utilize Intelligence in general.

    [–] Elizabeth Warren: Democrats Will Keep Losing Until the Entire Party Is 'Willing to Take on the Billionaire Class' Mackinz 1 points ago in politics

    Yeah, they did it all with the help of those poor multi-billion dollar corporations that were just so desperate for even more leeway to fuck over their employees while giving their CEO another several billion to spend on additional yachts and mansions.

    [–] Elizabeth Warren: Democrats Will Keep Losing Until the Entire Party Is 'Willing to Take on the Billionaire Class' Mackinz 6 points ago in politics

    "well at least there's a chance we'll get something different than the usual corporatist crap"

    Hi Republican.

    Your party is the definition of corporatist crap.

    Your party nominated the definition of corporatist crap to become president.

    Without your party, we would have far less corporatist crap to throw around. Your Supreme Court nominees are why Citizens United happened. Your party is why massive, near monopolies are no longer subject to anti-trust laws. Your party expanded the surveillance state in the name of "security", while pouring excessive billions into the military to funnel into the corporatist crap known as private contractors.

    Don't blame Democrats for your projection to protect your party. You are just as guilty as Trump.

    [–] After Trump’s G-7 summit fiasco, be afraid Mackinz 1 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago) in politics

    I explain this to them and they say oh, no, he would never die.

    Yes. Yes he would have. My mother died of cancer before Obama was elected. She didn't get the treatment she needed. Emergency room visits would not have fixed the problem, which is what you have to do when you can't afford insurance. It is extremely likely that your husband would have suffered the same fate.

    So fuck your family. Never forget that they voted for your husband to die, were proud of it, and said "it won't be that bad". Because it was that bad. They are entirely ignorant of absolutely bloody everything because they turned on their Fox News blinders.

    I am personally glad your husband survived. Truly. Cancer is horrific. But so is your family, and the way they can rationalize away any concern you might have because their preferred propaganda tells them to. Keep in mind the Milgram Experiment, because those are the kind of people we are dealing with here.

    [–] Trump pulls U.S. out of G-7 communique, accuses Trudeau of 'false statements' Mackinz 8 points ago in politics

    actual commie traitor

    Traitor, yes.

    Commie? No. He's a fascist piece of shit. Comparable to Lenin and Stalin, perhaps, as an attempted dictator, but that is where the comparisons stop.

    washed away in a matter of four years.

    It is more akin to forty, actually, starting with Nixon. Bush Jr. got us and our allies into a war over imaginary WMDs for oil. Trump is just continuing the trend of Republicans doing everything in their power to be as selfish and destructive as possible.

    you can eat 1 chip and salsa for a point of Inspiration (like in the PHB).

    It's Ghost Pepper Salsa btw.

    If this was the houserule at one of my groups, I would be making every roll with Advantage. Ghost pepper salsa is delish.

    [–] A Republican who filmed herself harassing a trans woman lost her election. By a lot. Mackinz 2 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago) in politics

    I posted this a few weeks ago when this issue first rised.

    She won't be charged with any sex offense crime, simply because of the nature of her recording and how the law is written out.

    You posted this a few weeks ago, but never bothered to research that she did, in fact, film inside the bathroom after the user Deggyy responded to you with evidence?

    Literally 30 seconds into the video linked in response to your write up, we see her open up the bathroom door and continue recording.

    10% is a big number until you realize it was actually only four thousand people in Los Angeles.
