They are just background radiation at this point and have as much chance of meaningfully impacting the story as would a request that I replace the main cast with talking purple ostriches playing badminton.

This is how I have always understood it (and keep in mind this is a basic D&D answer, and not a statement about OOTS per se):

On the most basic level, the substance of D&D multiverse is able to be shaped by personal belief. This is one of the main tenets of the Planescape setting, where planar locations shift around based on the moral leanings of the population. Most mortals don't have enough belief to really accomplish anything on their own, though, but the gods do. So mortals become clerics of a god, and their devotion to the god allows the god to funnel that belief-power back to them in the form of concrete magical effects. The gods aren't really the source of the power as much as they are the catalyst to convert it into something useful. They can tinker with the power in the process, by dictating spells or withholding power or what have you.

Non-theistic clerics get their spells from a wide distributed network of beings with similar philosophies who can act as catalysts for the cleric—but because these are not centralized, none of them can exercise "veto power" over the cleric, nor is the cleric required to acknowledge their dominance (or even their existence). In Gontor's case, it may be that a powerful Earth Elemental is granting him his spells, but it could be a different one each day, or even some spells from one and some from another. If any of those elementals decide they don't like what he's doing with his magic, he just gets his spells from someone else that day. He may even be entirely oblivious to which elemental provides his spells at any point, and therefore is under no obligation to any of them. Unfortunately, that also means that no single elemental is going to be invested enough in Gontor to care what happens to him.

Analogy time! Regular clerics have an employer-employee relationship, where the employer (god) consumes the work (prayer) that the employee (cleric) generates and in return provides them with compensation (spells), where that compensation is actually generated by the work being done by the entire company (church). A non-theistic cleric is more like a freelance writer; they perform the work (believe in a philosophy) that they feel is right for them, and then sell that work to whatever client (quasi-deific elemental beings) is willing to pay (provide spells) for it. The freelancer has more flexibility than the employee to do as they wish, but they also do not have many benefits of steady employment.

Superman by himself is not a problem. Superman as part of the Justice League is not a problem. Superman as a member of an ensemble FBI team IS a problem, because sometimes Agent Fred is supposed to be the one to catch the serial killer. You end up resorting to a LOT of kryptonite.

That said, I'd ask that we please drop the, "Was the young black dragon morally justified in attacking the OOTS?" derail. It's off-topic in multiple ways.

At that point, I don't think anyone would want the pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

I said, "You ALWAYS use your sword! You yell 'flame on!' every time we meet a monster! And now all of the sudden you don't want to?"
Player (proudly): "Well, my character wouldn't know that fire hurts trolls! I'm not metagaming!"

There definitely comes a point at which the efforts of the "metagame police" are self-defeating. In this instance, the poor player was so traumatized by previous DMs that he resorted to blatant metagaming in order to avoid the appearance of metagaming.

I'd rather let the players know stuff, and have us all know that we all know it, and then let the game proceed based on how the character would act.

It's not as well-known or popular as some other empires of the genre, and unfortunately it was cancelled after only a couple centuries, by Alexander the Great - but it has since developed quite a cult following. Babylon 5 fan groups are all over the internet, celebrating the great achievements of Babylon as it became the new center of the Persian Empire, and bickering over plot details and minutiae from texts in Herodotus and the Cyrus Cylinder. You'll even see their fans cosplaying at conventions as their favorite Babylon 5 characters, like Cyrus the Great, Darius II, and Nebuchadnezzar IV.

Just don't confuse them with other, more popular ancient empires. Babylon 5 fans are very sensitive about being overshadowed by the more visible franchises of the genre. I mean, sure, "Egyptian 19th Dynasty" is the one that gets the mainstream attention, and the catchphrases, and the gaudy reboots featuring Chris Pine, but once you get past the pyramids and the mummies, it just lacks substance.

"But for the races of man there is no such balance. They band together, build cities of brick and stone and the flesh of trees far older than their civilizations, and they make war upon all that keeps the world healthy. They have made themselves immune to the balance that governs the natural world. Or so they would like to think."

"We face the laughter, indeed embrace it as one of the kinder fates to befall those of us who choose the path of the Dark Maiden. Should the laughter turn to hatred that burns as the noonday sun then we face that as well, knowing our Lady dances with us even in the brightest day."

26. ## Re: Long Signature Thread

Spoiler: Beliefs
I'm going to try and sum up my beliefs in writing as best as I can.

The world, the universe, is a place that seeks balance. Everything has an antithesis, a polar opposite. We understand the world in the equal, yet opposite ideas that make it up. Up, down, left, right, forward, backward, past, future, good, evil, order, chaos, yes, no, summer, winter, spring, autumn, hot, cold, simple, complex. Everything exists on a line measured between two extreme points that oppose each other.

Don't believe it? Republican, Democrat. Freedom, security. Tolerant, intolerant. Enemy, friend. You're with me, or against me. It's either the death penalty, or letting murderers walk the streets. We turn everything, every issue, every argument, into black and white, trying to ignore the gray areas, the points somewhere between the two extremes that make up most of the world. Some people think that listening to the argument's of others opens you to being "corrupted" by their ideas. It's not about that: it's about understanding.

"If you don't know your opponent's argument, you don't fully understand your own."

I've spent my life listening to the arguments of others. I've listened, watched, and waited for a chance to speak, while those who have never listened prattled on about subjects they themselves didn't fully understand. Ignorance and intolerance irk me something fierce. I try to represent multiple points of view in my writing, to present different arguments in the hopes of bringing others to some epiphany regarding their own beliefs.

I try to listen to the arguments of others, in an attempt to gain more knowledge, more understanding, so that I can try and find the truth of things as best as I can.

The universe seeks balance, and the only way to reach it is to argue the issues while only seeking the truth, rather than attempting to further our own agendas. We should be concerned with what is best for everyone; while screwing people over financially doesn't help anyone except big business, if we support everyone in every way, they never learn to take care of themselves, only learning to rely on others to make it through life.

Maybe those of you that read this agree with me. Maybe you think I'm nuts. Maybe you're right.

But what if we could all work together? What if we could embrace the differences that separate us, celebrate our diversity? What if we could use all these different view points to reach the Truth, to help everyone enjoy their lives financially, spiritually, emotionally?

I think that would be a beautiful thing.

It's a school for monsters. There's sort of an ongoing story, and the character's are sort of interesting, and it's sometimes pretty funny...I don't know. I like it, though, no matter how unfocused it may appear at times. Or be at times.
Spoiler: Flipside
Flipside

Follow the adventures of a jester girl and her friends in a magical world with strict heroes and strange villains. A wonderful story with some bits of humor mixed in amongst the character development.
Spoiler: Grrl Power
Grrl Power

A superhero comic with an author that's actually thought super-powers through and followed them to semi-logical conclusions. An interesting story with a fairly dependable update schedule and a lot of humor. Constantly plays with tropes and the audience's expectations.

Self-insert comic that has a rather dark sense of humor at times. There are isolated storylines, but it's mostly a gag-a-day kind of comic.
Spoiler: Luci Phurr's Imps

Post-apocalyptic cyberpunk universe with it's own version of the Matrix, as well a widely feared group of terrorist hackers. The gripping story follows the life of one particular girl as she tries to make her way through life without attracting too much attention.
Spoiler: OoTS
OoTS

D&D comic following the Order of the Stick in their quest to save the world. It pokes fun at the rules; it proves and disproves various tropes; it breaks the 4th wall quite often; it's linked in the sidebar on the left. Also, it's awesome.
Spoiler: Pieces of Eights

Follow the day-to-day adventures of some Indie dude and his friends. Okay, it's a lot more interesting than that makes it sound. And yeah, the artwork's improved a lot since it started. Just give it a go, okay?
Spoiler: Schlock Mercenary
Schlock Mercenary

A comedic space opera centered around a band of mercenaries. Needless to say, the artwork has improved phenomenally since it started, and the story is usually quite entertaining (although the pacing can make the 4 panels once-a-day seem rather slow at times).
Spoiler: Selkie

Follow the day-to-day lives of a man and his young, adopted, mermaid daughter. It's much more interesting than I'm making it sound; by all means, check it out.
Spoiler: Sinfest
Sinfest

Gag-a-day strip that has produced a fairly continuous storyline in recent years. Fair warning: at some point, the author began less-than-subtly pushing a particular political message with their comic. Whether you agree with the message or not, the author is presenting it in a way that seems more likely to make people resent and reject the issue, rather than calmly and logically discuss it and come to a conclusion.
Spoiler: Something*Positive (Occasionally NSFW)
Something*Positive (Occasionally NSFW)

A semi-self-insert comic with a wonderful (sometimes/often dark) sense of humor, interesting characters, and an intriguing storyline. Occasionally NSFW, depending on how strict your workplace is; nobody goes past 2nd base on screen (from what I remember), but jokes like the first comic up there occur often enough to make this questionable, and occasionally it goes even further.

And for those of you who've read it that disagree, I'd like to remind you of a few characters you might have forgotten about: among others, there's Mike's "friends" the redneck trees, the mobs of ferocious catgirls (and their first victim), and Rippy the Razor.
Spoiler: Sore Thumbs
Sore Thumbs

the continuous story of a video game store and the people who run it. It takes a little while to get to that point, though. Once again, the author has given the characters some rather...obvious political leanings, and it seems clear which one the author favors. It occasionally pokes fun at the authors favored character, but it hardly evens things up. If you tend to lean in the direction of the unfavored character, you might not enjoy it. I've found the comic to be particularly amusing quite often; if you can ignore the political stuff, it's pretty good (especially the Jimmy Peterford storyline).
Spoiler: Spinnerette
Spinnerette

An accident in the science lab gives a teenage student spider powers, which they use to fight crime in their home city while hiding their new abilities from their friends and family. Less of a Spider-Man ripoff than it sounds. It's funny, the characters are all interesting, and the storylines are rather gripping at times.

A gag-a-day parody of superhero comics. Wonderella: a True Neutral superheroine in all her glory.
Spoiler: Two Guys and Guy
Two Guys and Guy

Another comic with rather improved artwork, this is a gag-a-day comic centered around three less-than-normal people and the weirdness that holds their friendship together.
Spoiler: Weregeek
Weregeek

The day-to-day lives of a group of geeks (and one in particular). Occasionally, it spends time focusing on their in-game characters, but it's mostly just looking at their lives and interactions.
Spoiler: XKCD
XKCD

Stick figure comic centered around romance, sarcasm, math, and language. Updates Mon-Wed-Fri, with a new gag each day. Also, check out the "What If" section in the site's header, where the author answers physics questions that take practical science to the theoretical limit (and often far past the sane limit, but that's a given).
Spoiler: Zombie Roomie
Zombie Roomie

Follow the day-to-day adventures and antics of John and his zombie roommate George. What can I say? I think it's funny. And yeah, once again the artwork has dramatically improved over the years.

Spoiler: Thematic option for evil clerics

As you are likely aware, if you've come this far, evil clerics in PF have to channel negative energy, and spontaneously cast inflict spells. This complicates healing immensely, creating very difficult situations independent of the actual threat of the campaigns. This is intended to solve such a situation in (what I think is) an interesting and thematically appropriate manner, without breaking the game or making other domains worthless by being overpowered.

I will gladly admit that I've never home-brewed much of anything, and this could be ridiculously off-base on the power level. I certainly hope not, but thus the thread.

TL;DR: I want evil parties to be evil. Not shirking from the killing of innocent townspeople or their livestock to fuel their healing magic. The process is described in detail behind the following spoiler. Allow me to introduce the:

Spoiler: Blood Domain
Blood Domain(I realize this the name of a subdomain of war. It's kind of pitiful. I'm ignoring it).

Granted Powers: You can manipulate the very essence of living beings, drawing power from both willing and unwilling targets.

Syphon life (Sp): As a standard action, you can draw energy from a living target through a supernatural connection. You can target any living creature within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack to initiate the connection (treat this action as any ray attack). If you hit, the connection causes 1d4 points of damage +1 point for every two cleric levels you possess. If the target is willing, this damage increases to 1d8 (+1/level), instead. This damage is stored as healing energy (independent of positive or negative), which can be transferred as healing to any other living target. The recipient of healing does not require a touch attack, if in melee with the cleric and willing to accept the healing energy. The act of healing requires a move action at any point within 3 rounds following the successful attack (or a swift action, to heal himself). This damage (and healing) cannot exceed the hit points of the target which received the drain. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3+ your wisdom modifier.

Lifesurge strike (Su): At 8th level, you can give a weapon that you touch the lifesurge special weapon quality for a number of rounds equal to 1/2 your cleric level. You can use this ability once per day at 8th level, and an additional time per day for every four levels beyond 8th.

Domain Spells: 1st-Light Blood Healing, 2nd-Moderate Blood Healing, 3rd-Serious Blood Healing, 4th-Critical Blood Healing, 5th-Blood of Life, 6th-Blood Infusion, 7th-Bloodied Regeneration, 8th-Mass Critical Blood Healing, 9th-Mass Blood Infusion

(I realize that the spell naming is pitifully unoriginal. I'm not that creative- sue me)

The above mentioned spells all work exactly like the domain spells of the healing domain, with two significant distinctions. 1: Each of them produces either positive or negative energy healing, whichever will actually renew hit points to the target(s). 2: Furthermore, they each have a material component of 1 vial of desecrated blood per spell level. These two effects apply to any spell with the (good) or (healing) subtext, changing all bonuses to profane, and enabling all healing to manifest as positive or negative energy, depending on the target.

Desecrate Blood is a bonus ritual spell available to clerics with access to the domain, with the following relevant details: the spell requires a living creature (size tiny or larger) to be sacrificed as a material component. The casting process takes a minimum of 10 minutes. Each casting generates units of desecrated blood (and requires vials for collection) according to the size and sentience of the sacrificed creature, as follows:

 Size Non-sentient Sentient (minimum 3 int) Duration Tiny 1 3 10 minutes Small 2 6 20 minutes Medium 3 9 40 minutes Large 6 18 90 minutes Huge 10 30 3 hours Gargantuan 15 45 6 hours Colossal 25 75 (good luck restraining a sentient, colossal creature) 12 hours

Finally, desecrated blood lasts for 3 days, when drawn from a non-sentient source; or 2 weeks, when drawn from a sentient source. After this time, the stored magical energies have dissipated. Any spell attempted with inert blood fails, though the spell is not lost and can be attempted again, with a new material component.

All clerics of an evil deity (or evil clerics independent of deity) have access to this domain, in addition to their deity's other domains (I could see this being limited to the more organized evil deities (Hextor, etc..), but that's largely subjective, and limits the point of providing a thematically appropriate answer to healing issues).

Furthermore, clerics with the blood domain can spontaneously exchange any prepared spell for a blood healing spell, in addition to their normal option of inflict spells (Thus, an evil cleric with this domain could prepare offensive spells (as their good counterparts already do), and not forgo his ability to be a support character. And I don't think the inflict spells are so good as to be overbalancing).

So? My eyes and ears are open for feedback, of any variety other than "wow, this is stupid." I want actual, mechanical feedback, please. Thanks all, for taking the time to read it, if you did.
