RFI is back with another mini issue, and this week DMs Vince, Matt, Chrispy explore divine intervention. It’s briefly mentioned on page 111 of the Dungeon Master’s Guide and the crew expands upon it’s uses in the game and how to avoid the character phoning a deity at any sign of trouble. So sit back and enjoy this divinely inspiring issue of Roll for Initiative.

General Discussion / Re: Biting the sour apple
« on: September 25, 2017, 06:07:45 AM »
I am quite enjoying 5e as well. As much fun as I had playing BX and 1e, 5e is the game I really wanted to be playing (I just didn't know it). :)

I do love converting old BX and 1e modules for 5e. Although I am just starting my first 5e AP (atomb of Annihilation).

The only thing I can't stand about 5e is the amount of power gamers and munchkins its drawing in, along with the people who sit and watch those stupid twitch streams and expect the group they are walking into, will be as exciting and magical as a bunch of voice actors having fun, hamming it up for the camera and when its not, shit on the DM, then leave. (saw this happen twice to a few people at my local shop)

Plus the money grab attempts WOTC is doing...

Roll for Initiative Podcast / Re: Volume 7 issue 196 - Campaign Beginnings

Isn't Vince also "The Evil DM"? If so, why doesn't he allow evil player characters in games? Does he want all the evil to himself, like those guys who take all the cashews?

LOL

Yes, I am.

I don't allow Evil characters in my games, because D&D is a game for heroes and heroes are Good characters or slightly neutral characters. Evil is too disruptive in the group.

Loving 5e, I love that I can change rules to mimic a 1e game, and it doesn't destroy the game.

Roll for Initiative Podcast / Volume 7 issue 196 - Campaign Beginnings
« on: September 21, 2017, 12:50:31 PM »
http://rfipodcast.com/show/2017/09/20/volume-7-issue-196-campaign-beginings/
This week DMs Vince, Matt, & Chrispy are back and discuss the starting new campaigns, covering the initial campaign and PC creation, laying out house rules and more. We then open the treasure chest and find some gauntlets created by none other than the EvilDM himself. And there are just way too many mouths involved in the creature feature, as the Gibbering Mouther makes an appearance. We have all that and Frank L Baum on this week’s issue of Roll For Initiative.

Gauntlet of Dark Forces
Gold Value: 10000gp
XP Value: 5000
Upon placing this item on, the wearer may concentrate (2 Segments for action) and release a dark blast that will hit one target, no to hit roll is needed, only damage dice are rolled. Please see damage rules below for results.
If the damage dice (3d6) fall:
• On all 1’s, the character will take the damage himself (item still useable)
• On all 6’s, the damage will double, and the character is compelled to use this item the very next round again, no matter the situation and will not “pull a punch”.
Each use will expend a charge on this item. Once the charges run out, the item becomes useless, unless recharged.

Roll for Initiative Podcast / Re: Volume 7 Mini Issue 10 – Too Much Gold?
« on: September 21, 2017, 12:48:13 PM »
For awhile I was making my players spend the gold to earn their XP so they couldn't just hoarde it. Seemed to work alright :)

hey that will work :)

« on: September 18, 2017, 06:13:47 AM »
I always assumed the gp=xp rule was to represent "mission accomplished", if the party killed the monsters and stole their loot then that's the bonus xp, it ties in with the treasure tables as to what that bonus was. Of course the loot needed to be secured, how it was spent was immaterial. Note that a bigger party, and paying off any retainers, or sharing loot with NPCs, all reduces the gp share and thus the xp bonus, as it should as the task was effectively easier, so it's actually a nice way to balance all the rewards and consider it a game mechanic rather than some "real world" rule.

yeah good points here. Most of my groups, never do anything with retainers or hirelings, and just horde gold like a dragon.. :)

Roll for Initiative Podcast / Volume 7 Mini Issue 10 – Too Much Gold?
« on: September 14, 2017, 06:30:43 AM »
http://rfipodcast.com/show/2017/09/13/volume-7-mini-issue-10-too-much-gold/

DM Vince and DM Matt are back this week with a mini issue, and the topic is a golden one, just how much gold is too much. What are the pitfalls of running a ‘Monty Hall’ game where the characters have more coinage than Scrooge McDuck? How do you manage character levels when finding 1 gold is 1 xp? The gang discusses all of that more in this week’s mini issue of Roll For Initiative.

First Edition AD&D / Re: Actual Play podcasts?
« on: September 14, 2017, 06:26:52 AM »
Awesome! I always enjoyed both of yours. I knew jayson was looking for his a couple of years ago, so glad to know they still exist somewhere!

He was? he didnt seem to care much about them when we asked what he wanted done with it, except he didnt want it released in a wide scale, he said give it on a person by person basis. He finally agreed to allow us to just upload them and let them go. The audio was actually quite awful on some of them, so that could be the case.

First Edition AD&D / Re: Actual Play podcasts?
« on: September 13, 2017, 09:10:53 AM »
So, I know how to find the Book of Sorrows podcast, but I'm trying to find some of the other ones that were mentioned in the old issues (like, going back to 2012 I think?).  It sounds like at one point there were 5 of them, including Jayson's actual play, but I can't actually find them online anymore.  How does one go about listening to these anymore?

you can find all the ones I did on iTunes, from the Book of Sorrows, Fin Fang Foom and the TSR Marvel APs. Jayson's podcasts, we are working on a way to post those up. Was waiting on Jayson's permission first, which we got.
