These lazy miners, they keep missing their quotas! And these excuses are the worst! "Oh, there's something down there!" "Oh, I saw dark shapes!" "Oh, it ate Montaron and smiled while it did it!" Hmmm...maybe these adventurers can help me with my little problem...

Greetings /r/DnD! I'm pleased to announce that we've bolstered our moderator ranks with 8 new mods. We've spent the last few days onboarding and are excited to help make this the best damn Dungeons & Dragons community that we can! They are:

Thank you to these users for stepping up and helping to maintain and expand our sub. And thank you to everyone else who applied!

Hmmm....those adventurers still haven't returned. I wonder if this will affect my corrupt mining foreman insurance. Ah no matter, the gold I've been pocketing is more than enough to OH YOU'RE BACK!

 Monks would make really good pirates, right?

This may have been remarked upon before, but it just occurred to me that a monk would make an excellent pirate or sailor.

They wear no armor. That's a real plus on a boat.

They can run across water or up masts. They can slow their falls from said masts and sails.

You say short sword, I say cutlass.

Open Hand - I can toss you off the boat.

Shadow - I can teleport from my boat to your boat. There has to be a shadow somewhere on the boat.

Elemental - I can freeze water. I can punch you off the boat. I can fly to your boat. I can burn your boat. Etc.

Sun - I can also burn your boat.

So as you can see mates, a monk would make a good pirate.

 Mini rant on DM’s ruling
Posted: 2022-11-27T02:26:41+00:00
Author: /u/jambrown13977931

In my session today I forged a duplicate of promissory note for 400gp I already had in my inventory. (I have charlatan background, a forge kit, and proficiency in the forge kit). I got the original note off a mercenary that was hired to kill us. When I went cash it in at the bank there was a group women (~10-20) outside who claimed i killed their husbands and refused to let me in without the note. I went away for ~10-15 mins to forge the duplicate to give to them to placate them. I told the women “the mercenaries (who were hired to kill us along with a weakened beholder), that their husbands were killed valiantly fighting the beholder and the duplicated notes were what I found on their bodies. I felt bad so here”. My DM had me roll a deception check. I rolled a natural 18+9 for my deception stat (so 27 total). I was really happy with that.

Then the DM proceeds to roll an insight check for every one of these women. One of them gets a natural 20 and instantly sees through the ruse. These are supposedly regular women who are being lied to by an expert and because there’s ~10 to 20 of them, they simply have a 40-70% chance of instantly seeing through my ruse? At that point the expected outcome is that at least one of them rolls a natural 20 instantly defeating my natural 18+9. Whats even the point of having me roll for deception at that point??

Somewhat sorry for the rant, this just rubbed me the wrong way. I thought I did something really clever, utilized a stat that I invested heavily into building, but don’t often get to use, rolled really well, and then just got nothing.

This is why natural 20s auto succeeding on skill checks shouldn’t be a thing.
