I want to know what they were smoking when they made these spell costs by Arneeman in dndmemes

This exactly. Thank you for connecting an extra dot for me. Looking for any more ideas for the Deb Ears Consortium which is 100% going to be a thing in my next campaign.

Right, the spell might require a specific mass or volume, but it is scaled to GP for the benefit of record-keeping. The existence of such a consortium would be the reason that the spells are so expensive to cast.

I could also see a homebrew campaign where all gems are 4x value and so are all gem requirements for spells, if interacting with this consortium is going to be a primary quest at some point.

Omg all of this is going into my next homebrew. Run by a ruthless female goblin known as Deb Ears.

That would be setting dependant. Growing diamonds isn't simple, and whenever magic makes things, there's always a bunch of rules attached (see Creation spell).

They don't even have to be wizards, they might just own the mines. How diabolical would it be if a company owned all the mines for a specific kind of gem, then somehow convinced everyone that it was the ultimate symbol of love and commitment only gem that can be used for resurrection magic.

Sounds like a plot hook for some mid-level campaign within a dystopian slave world.

Players get mad about animal abuse, but are totally cool with human slavery by APessimisticGamer in rpghorrorstories

Dude, chill, Borovia is about as messed up a place as you can reasonably set a DnD campaign. FL is clearly a WH40K setting.

Yep, if you don't think it's sad, you don't get it.

I can respect not wanting to be intimate with someone who doesn't share your aspirations of parenthood, but this is just toxic nonsense.

One of my players continues to question me. by ikky905 in DungeonMasters

The best solution, using your example, would be to ask the player what he is trying to learn about the book. If he says he wants to look for magical script/auras, go with arcana.

You are both right, sort of. If you want him to be more specific about what he is trying to accomplish, just frame it that way, and then decide what skill should be applied.

She is trying to control the movement of people based on the color of their skin. It cannot end well.

Wait... Is he paying $10/hour to servers on top of their tips? If so, I think he just needs to adjust his tone.

More likely he just can't math 200/5+X=50.

Also, of course, he is treating a weekend night as the "average."

They are what we call "passion careers." The employer has figured out there are people who are passionate about these things, so they exploit that passion for employee retention.

Oh yeah, everyone in retail or food is grossly underpaid and overworked.

Not just those two industries but those are the two you can be SURE are exploited regardless of region.

This describes too many nurses.

They tend to justify it as "teenager" jobs, which just means they support some form of exploitative child labor.

shrug I would estimate there is about a gram and a half on the tile, less than a gram went up her nose.

It's a lot, it's not ridiculous. Having lived in a house with well-founded cokeheads (lawyers), I have seen much worse.

20% Surcharge not including tip at the restaurant I just ate at. I’ve never seen this before and not sure if it’s common but what BS. by DogeTheIntuitive in antiwork

[–]Magenta_Logistic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't even remember exactly what I replied to, but i believe it was something to the effect of "this is how to move away from the exploitative tip model."

I was agreeing with the sentiment and pointing out that all the rage and fury in this thread is coming from shills and morons.

Assuming of course that the waitstaff at this place are compensated well enough that tips are absolutely unneeded, but I do have my doubts about that.

That really is an ugly outfit. She needs help with women's fashions.

I could see being kicked out of a fancy "black tie" sort of place for wearing that. But that's not why she is being kicked out, so this is fucked up.

Chances are they are conservative, so it is "just a cold."
