Every other attack crits me, and every other attack I roll is a critical miss. So really not a good combo. :l I've already died once.
When did you die? Don't you just become unconscious(but close to death) when you hit negative HP values under half your Max HP?

Well, it was a figure of speech. I'm a warforged so I can't die anyway. Lol.

So that might limit some feat options, but at least it narrows down choices. On the flip side - monsters can't crit on other numbers either.
It's just a houserule I strongly believe in. Sorry if you disagree, feel free to further talk to me if you have any questions.
Of course, I should mention ... if a majority of players don't like this houserule, then I'll remove it.

I was just wondering but is there no more room for additional players?
I agree. Good rule Epi.

Hello everyone, long time since an update - but this thread really has served it's main purpose. I will still place important information on here from time to time, so check back.
We will restart playing D&D 4e this weekend (5/11/2013 - 5/12/2013).
However, we are also going to be using a newer version of MapTools. This version of MapTools (maptool-1.3.b89 as of 5/10/2013) utilizes Java 7, so that means you should uninstall Java 6. Having Java 6 in your computer leaves for some potential security risks or something along those lines, if you don't need it - then don't have it installed.
Another problem is however, that MapToolLauncher.exe doesn't work with Java 7 - so we need to change some settings around.
Just follow this simple guide and you will be fine:
Step 1) Uninstall all outdated versions of Java (Keep Java 7)
Manually uninstall the older versions of Java or use the Java Uninstall Tool.
Step 2) Download and Install the latest version of Java 7
The download page for Java can be found here.
Take note if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit, you will have different downloads to choose from. MapTools works with either version, so do not worry too much about that. Pick the 64-bit version if you can support that version of Java.
Step 3) Download the latest version of MapTools
The download page for MapTools can be found here. Be sure to download "maptool-1.3.b89.zip".
Save this folder someplace safe on your computer.
Step 4) Unzip the MapTools folder and open MapToolLauncher.exe
Adjust the values for Min and Max Memory as you see fit.
Keep the Stack Size at 2, that will be sufficient.
Once you click on "Ok", you will get an error - that is fine. Now you should see a new file in your MapTools folder called "mt.cfg".
Step 5) Open the "mt.cfg" file with Notepad and edit the JVM line
Edit the mt.cfg file and change the JVM line, adjusting the line to be where you have Java 7 installed on your computer.
JVM=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javaw
Most of the time, the default path will be one of these two - depending on whether you installed 32 or 64 bit Java.
Step 6) Place this .bat file in the MapTools folder, then run the .bat file
The .bat file will run MapTools with the memory settings* that are written in the .bat file.
Download for the .bat file here: http://puu.sh/2QVWd.zip
Unzip the file, then place the .bat file into your MapTools folder.
Once placed in the MapTools folder, running the .bat file should open MapTools.
If that worked, you can now use that .bat file to open MapTools. Feel free to make a shortcut of it and place the shortcut on your desktop.
*If you open the .bat file using a program like Notepad you will see the following:
If you look at the second line, you see multiple terms that may look familiar.
javaw -Xmx1024m -Xms64m -Xss2m -jar maptool-%VERS%.jar run
-Xmx = MAX Memory
-Xms = MIN Memory
-Xss = Stack Size
So, if you want to adjust your memory values - simply change the numbers next to each word.
Don't forget to save! ^ ^
As a little reminder, the Skype group chat has the same rules as Mabination.
Of course, this is a D&D group and we are supposed to have fun. But please be mindful and respectful of others. While there is no censor anymore, use your vocabulary responsibly.
As always, 18+ images and being hostile to other players is never allowed.
In addition, be very careful when discussing plot details concerning the D&D game. If there is something you must remark about, please do so in your Saturday/Sunday group-only chat.
