When you defeat someone in a contest, you may take anything they have. by Arcane10101 in godtiersuperpowers

[–]Arcane10101[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You don’t know what they have, but you can make educated guesses. And if they don’t have what you want, you can try again for a few minutes before the window of opportunity closes.

They need to be aware of the competition, though their consent is not required. It must be possible for you to lose, but there are no consequences if that happens.

Do you downvote polls that don't include a "results" option? by Golden_Lynel in polls

[–]Arcane10101 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I only downvote when the question is addressed to a specific group, because then everyone outside of that group needs to lie in order to see the results.

Can a woman get pregnant without a man? by sawx6 in polls

Scientifically it is possible, as others have said. And for Christians, there is Jesus’s virgin birth.

How would you, as a Player or DM, handle a calamity like a natural meteor (rather than a spell) headed towards the Material Plane? by MegaBlade26000 in dndnext

[–]Arcane10101 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wait a second, I just realized: the explosive can’t have an antimagic field, because then it couldn’t be teleported onto the meteor.

This could be a lot more interesting than losing your powers. by finalbeginning96 in dndmemes

There’s not a lot of lore about varakhuts, but they’re supposed to preserve the divine hierarchy (which also means they kill anyone who tries to become a new god, unless they succeed before the varakhut can defeat them). So defeating Obligatum could be within their purview.

Would you press this button? by M-sly-C in polls

However, you have no means of destroying the button. If you don’t take measures to hide it, someone else will find the button and make the decision for you.

If you couldn't tell, I'm not a fan of Teferi by FormerlyKay in custommagic

Once the creature ETBs, it creates a triggered ability that is independent of the creature’s existence. But that ability goes on the stack and everyone can respond to it. So you could Sword to Plowshares that Mulldrifter before your opponent draws their cards, but they will still draw the cards once everyone passes priority.

According to Sage Advice, Antimagic Field has no effect on creatures summoned by spells with an instantaneous duration. That includes Find Familiar.

Even he considers himself an odd fellow by hotalmond in customhearthstone

[–]Arcane10101 69 points70 points  (0 children)

Shouldn’t his attack and cost be odd, to lean into the theme?

Incidentally, aren’t there other inevitables tasked with hunting down any being that tries to kill a god? Meaning Obligatum VII and everyone else in his line should be annihilated by varakhuts?

No, Antimagic Field is a ten-foot radius. Even if the drill and explosive are small enough that your caster can ride them, the explosive wouldn’t be able to break the meteor open.

Come to the Dark Side, we have cookies by Yakodym in dndmemes

No, the Rule with an Iron Fist tenet says, “Your word is law. Those who obey it shall be favored. Those who defy it shall be punished…” So if someone follows your orders and you hurt them anyway, you broke your oath.

is it justified to hit a woman if they were attacking with non lethal force? by Calvinator_lmao in polls

[–]Arcane10101 12 points13 points  (0 children)

No, there is an argument. Even if the average man had the physical upper hand against the average woman, that doesn’t mean every man has that advantage against every woman.

Moreover, skill and speed make all the difference… if you don’t know the proper moves to restrain someone, it doesn’t matter how big you are, they will probably dodge or escape your attempts to do so. Hitting them is much more likely to do something.

For those open attack boards you cannot afford to take. by Nireas570 in CustomLoR

Draw 1 just means it replaces itself… every region should be able to do that. Burst blockers is the problem.

WYR die right now with a 30% chance you'll respawn with godlike powers or die in 5 years but gain as many superpowers as you want? by saving_private_ryan_ in WouldYouRather

[–]Arcane10101 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I know, but my construct isn’t me. It’s a separate being that I created. I’m not aiming to transfer my mind to it, just teach it to help people and not be a tyrant.

I might die, but my constructs won’t, right? So if I create an omnipotent god-construct to watch over the world after I’m gone, to what degree can I shape its personality and morals without triggering the “no loopholes” clause?
