Excel is a very simple graphics program. the only way to change the layer stackig order is to cut and paste. when you paste, the pasted image is the top layer.

whatcha got in mind?

Nothing game related. I was just thinking it would be handy to learn how to use some of these basic functions in Word/Excel. I use the fancier graphing options and such, but have never used the drawing ones. I can't even seem to find where to "draw" object... or did you do that in something like MSpaint?

How is Nairitya managing to take the Vampire template, which can be applied only to humanoids or monstrous humanoids? Rakshasi are outsiders, after all.

Fil could always houserule, of course; my point is more that you'll need some way to fulfill the requirements, and that the rules currently prevent that. It seems reasonable to permit this, considering that it seems balanced and that similar houserules have been made with respect to Regional feats.

Despite having undead HD, Nairitya still gets full BAB from his racial hit dice, as the vampire template explicitly says to not recalculate BAB (along with skills and saving throws).

Yep.

when designers decide a template is able to permit certain creature types and not others... is there any real balance issues, or common sense? vampire demons only make sense to me... yet the game doesn't allow it?

houserule indeed! one of thousands to be unveiled!

I can almost imagine the make believe conversation... "Vampire demons? Of course! You mean you don't have those in your realm? Sheesh, what kind of backwater interdimensional plane do you come from?"

I gotta admit, as much a pain it is to plot maps for PbP, writing combat description is my FAVORITE part of this form of gaming. I could never do this at a table top game.

also, in case anyone wondered, I roll my dice for real on my game table here at home. the best dm screen on the planet.....

Haha I haven't seen that in years ... I think thats where the name came from, subconsciously though. It just seemed very 'angelic', though I couldn't figure out why. On a related note its also a gemstone, very beautiful looking.

I thought Celestine was named for the book (I've never read it though; google tells me it's a new age philosophy book).

I threw a dragon at my tabletop party today. They haven't had much luck with them in the past in this campaign. The first killed the cleric (never engage a dragon in midair one at a time was the lesson from that). The second nearly wiped the whole party - they were only saved by generous castings of energy resistance by the cleric (have energy resistance up beforehand and watch out for fear affects was the lesson). The one today killed the mage in the opening breath attack, knocked the rogue out (saved from death by the cleric's close wounds), almost killed the cleric twice ( down to 1 and 7 hp, respectively), almost killed the barb (would have knocked him unconscious but for close wounds) ... the lesson today was "don't charge in at the dragon without prep first, make sure to have energy resistance on EVERYONE, and actually have a plan to fight it, and if the AC seems a bit high dispel magic is probably a good idea". The managed to win because they got clever later on ... Proud of 'em there. VERY tense encounter. Hopefully they'll remember it.

Moral of the story: Dragons are very mean but fun to play. Though the mage I killed was my girlfriend ... she wasn't very happy with me about that. ^^;; she got resurrected though, so s'all good.

Yeah, the first time I encountered a dragon the party was at a really low level (everyone about ecl 4, I was about ecl 7 because none of us understood ECL/LA at the time) and we really should not have even come close to encountering it at that point. However, one of our prisoners was escaping and I wasn't about to let that happen, so I chased after him into a sandstorm. I managed to catch the bugger and grapple him, and then my dm says those dreaded words: "make a will save..."

I'll give the main thread another day before posting again with a big block of text. I am INCREDIBLY busy at work right now... which results in more work getting done. I love being productive.

on a related note, I feel the urge to invite more people into the mix. in addition to random, there is another gamer on here (ithamar) who I'd like to put in, but we are getting to be a very large group. He'll be # 7. I think that is the absolute max I can really consider on one team. but if we found another, we could break into two teams of four. I like the idea of two thread running, because I would be able to keep things rolling consistently, but I don't want to break this team up! too much good interaction.

what is a dm to do?
