Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds from B/X to D&D 5e. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons for both trad and indie games. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment Can one PC grab another PC and drag them?
@nitsua60 As funny as it might have been, double entendres about sex unintentionally make a site a sexualise place, and therefore accidentally less welcoming to the wide audience we are intending to serve. It's the same reason it's not considered a good idea in the workplace. In the interest of all our users, it's a necessary sanitisation.

comment Can one PC grab another PC and drag them?
@nitsua60 Because "mount" represents three different grammatical entities, the sentence syntax makes it the second, transitive verb because no indirect object is provided, which is not what was meant. The indirect object (horse) is necessary to evoke the ditransitive entity; in one place I did that, and in another I used a prepositional phrase to force an implied transitive with the wizard as subject instead.

@GMJoe Yeah, that's just ungrammatical for the intended meaning. Fixed.

Comments aren't for lamenting our personal pet peeves with a game.

comment Why is my party's alchemist doing so much damage to everything?
We can't help yet because the question doesn't tell us the problem you're having. The closest the question gets is where it says, "…both the direct and splash damage of his bombs were causing issues for me. The only thing is that I can't figure out WHY there are issues." You need to tell us what these issues are or we can't possibly figure it out either!
