Campaign #1 - Somewhere on the Sword Coast Joy the DM 03/08/2024 (Fri) 18:18 [Preview] No. 3440 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hello and welcome to our first campaign! I have changed many of the rules for D&D 5e due to player feedback and to foster an enjoyable play-by-post asynchronous run. Though this is also an experiment for all of us, so do try not to take it so seriously but just serious enough so you can be immersed in the lore and fantasy of the game. Please do not use this thread for meta conversation, hosts are banned from this thread and will be ignored.

Day Zero Dreams:


Attached is the map of the Sword Coast, and our marked local map. We will be initially focusing our attention just south of Neverwinter, specifically near Neverwinter Wood and the Sword Mountains.

Though there is plenty of lore about this area, but consider our campaign one of infinitely many parallel versions with features that may not be canon.

The events in Yulya's day zero dreams take place near the coast between Neverwinter Wood and the Sword Mountains. Yulya's secluded cabin, the battlefield, Cat's raised village, and even the crash site are all places you may choose to revisit. The limits are only your imagination. Be warned though, there has been a recent uptick in bandits and other nefarious monstrous foes along the coast. Though "The High Road" is well patrolled and generally safe to travel, the many tributaries and wilds surrounding the road have been reported to have a sharp increase in danger. Travel under escort if at all possible or travel at your own peril.

>It's 18:30 and Cat's still warming up rations when Ashley Panther returns. Not seeing Yulya she rushes up to Cat and places the large coney at her feet then rears up and rubs her face against the sides of Cat's head in a show of affection and ownership as a deep rumbling of a purr assures Cat that Ashley Panther is happy, safe, and likely proud of herself for the catch. She licks Cat's ears a couple times then hops down and sits patiently by her catch. Looking up at Cat as if expecting praise.
Good girl Nya!
We can cook a lot with this catch Nya!

Cat pats Ashley panther's head and adds the meat to the cooked rations leaving bones and other inedible parts for Ashley

''Sighing at the weakness of her companions, Cat also adds a few spices to the meal in her pot. The stew soon develops an alluring scent. Cat fans it towards Alice and into the tent with her paws knowing that Alice and Yulya haven't eaten. Their hunger should bring them back to their senses quickly.

>something foul has overtaken the lands south of Neverwinter.
Alice sneezes in her sleep making the gooey slime blob briefly hop an inch into the air. It continues its sleep with low frequency pulsations dreaming of synthesizing the perfect leaf spring alloy composition

>The stew soon develops an alluring scent. Cat fans it towards Alice and into the tent with her paws knowing that Alice and Yulya haven't eaten.
Alice's chemoreceptors go wild and the slime increases its pulsation rate, sending out tendrils into the direction of the pot. Soon the gooey blob creeps toward cat at an astonishing speed and slowly morphs itself into a little girl upon arriving there which eagerly stares at the food. Yukata and mask are left behind near the tent

Yulya hugs the huge black cat curled up around her and calms down hearing the roadmaster walk away again. She almost falls asleep but then a delicious scent of freshly cooked stew enters the tent. After a short mental struggle she pops out her head to see what is going on. Seeing Cat and Alice at the pot full of stew she reluctantly joins followed by Ashley.

[Friday, Spring 7th, Clear night, 19:30, 13C decreasing to 10C overnight]

3 rations worth of food are eaten, leaving 17. Ashley Panther happily eats bones and gristle. She is amenable to the touch of those she is bonded with and skittish to others. Not aggressive, but not passive, she is not a tamed creature.

She sits near the fire sticking close to Yulya, unlike other wild beasts the fire doesn't bother her, and her aura does not disturb this group of tame beasts of burden in the least though this is not guaranteed in the future.

Conversation is light, but a cloud hangs over the group.

Yulya is suffering from Apathy, resulting in -4 Charisma, in addition she has disadvantage on saving throws and dexterity checks for initiative. A good night's rest may improve her situation but weather she succumbs to it again is up how she treats herself and her mood.

Cat happily hands out dinner to everyone. She is delighted to see how delighted her friends are by the great taste and smell of the stew.

>The night is almost peaceful, normally it'd be an easy rest, but Ashley's keen True Sight has her staring off at the tree line. The hairs stand up on the back of her neck.
Cat immediately notices Ashley's strange behavior
What is it, Ashley Nya?

>Something big, something unnatural, has been attracted to the tame beasts of burden. It's stealth is broken only because of Ashley's sight and now that you know, you all now feel that same uneasy presence.
Cats ears and eyes scan the area using perception. She quietly turns to the others even muffling her Nyas
Playtime's over nya! Alice, get your bow. Yulya, snap out of it nya!

Do you want to play super casual DnD? Ashley the Necromancer 03/01/2024 (Fri) 00:29 [Preview] No. 3325 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
So we bought a full set of stuff so Bear could play DnD with friends but adding a 9-yr old to the mix and a Bear that advocates for her like a doating grandfather, it was a total disaster.

Honestly I was pretty excited to play but RIP. The idea then is that we could attempt to play over txt here but really slowly obviously because all characters need to take a turn and so maybe we could do one full turn a day.

The logistics are iffy, I'm not going to lie, but I want to play damnit! I would say we need one representative from each of us (4 total) or it's a non-starter.

This would be a modified 5e ruleset because that's what we bought but anything goes and there are a few inconsistencies from the standard game.

Wouldn't it be potentially fun and a bonding exercise for all you old fags? (my host included).

Also we need to start level 1, so no metal shifting badass OP Mary Sues capable of single-handedly accomplishing a military coup.

If anyone thinks this is too cringe, never mind because we don't want to exclude anyone. It's not that big of a deal, my feelings won't be hurt.

Bear could be DM because he has all the books and bought two beginner adventures. I don't know if that means I can't play, probably not, but it's possible.

I love it when my cats do this. They sometimes also annoy each other or even themselves with their tails. I think the tail is a creature of its own parasitizing the cat. The cats have no control over it.

Host took all those pics with the Pixel. He took a lot of the choughs to catch a few in flight.

The carnivorous plant is Pinguicula alpina. It catches tiny insects on its sticky leaves

The parasitic orchid is Neottia nidus-avis. It has no green parts and gets all energy from mycorrhizal fungi that live in symbiosis with trees. The orchid pretends to be a symbiotic plant and attracts fungal hyphae into its roots, then digests them without giving them anything.

Grape roots easily go 5-6 m deep into the soil, old plants can reach more than 20m. We have a grape in the garden that's about 20 yeas old but it doesn't do too well due to lack of sun. It has a few handful of fruit every year.

Our Epiphyllum cactus is flowering, th flowers are the size of a child's head and smell like soap. Unfortunately they only last a few days. Pic related, we missed the flowers in full bloom. The Pithaya and Queen of the Night refuse to flower like almost every year.

Pull-Push-Leg Intro BodyBuilderBear 07/10/2023 (Mon) 18:16 [Preview] No. 1369 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Yo, Imma give you my take on the three day workout. This workout is meant to be three successive days, no break. The maximum gain will be a 5-day cycle 3 on, 2 off but at minimum a 7-day cycle. With 4 days off you will still gain up to a plateau, you will be strong, you will look good, but forget getting ultra low-bodyfat or swol proportions on this one. Keep in mind also that it's going to take a lot of time to do it right, if you rush, you'll be lucky to maintain.

Each workout will be at minimum an hour but if you really take your time and add a good hour cardio on the end it can easily reach 3 hours. I will do these Fri-Sat-Sun mornings it's the only time I have and the gym is a little less busy assuming you get in before 5, late-mid morning if you pick a time when it's rushing you're wasting your time, don't bother. Your gym may vary but typically there's a morning crowd and an evening crew and so avoid those times.

It's way better than it was 4 years ago but the crowd is more spread out.

1. I highly recommend 3 sets of 10, it's a good balance and will avoid most injuries. You're stupid to max less than 5 reps and you'll look like a swimmer of you go 15+. You want to look as good as much as you want to be strong so I do at bare minimum 8 for the last set or there's too much weight and if 10 is easy on the last set add more.

2. You gotta stretch for each exercise, if you're going for endurance than no, but that means you like to look like a grey alien. Strech so you don't pull.

3. One minute between sets, there's no rush. Tell those bitches who are pressing you to finish up that 'you're almost done'. Those fuckups want to work in, tell them 'you're almost done' because they'll have a 5 minute workout without stopping right in the middle of your sets. Mother fucking assholes, especially women.

4. If you need a spotter, it's too much weight. You're not going for Mr Olympia and let's face it, you don't have a workout buddy so just be cool and don't push so hard. You're going for 8 reps minimum so you don't need a spotter. Also fuck burpies, dead lifts, squats, and bar bench press, they're killers man and entirely unnecessary. Don't be gay and don't be a spaz.

5. Proper form always even if it means less weight, this will also avoid injuries. Don't go viral on some bitch's insta under the title "bad form loser". They should really outlaw pictures and videos in the gym.

6. This will take a good 6-12 months religiously to go from a zero to a hero. Believe me girls will start coming up to you like you won't believe.

Yeah it's probably the secondary muscles. I doubt you felt any soreness in the quads. Otherwise I have no idea what you pulled but take it easy.

That's why I wanted to hike but whatever I'll just hike alone and fight off the pumas.

Soreness was mostly gone the next day, still weird. Obviously hiking isn't comparable to crouching and squatting.

I don't remember doing this since I was 20, I climbed one of those vita course polls, with just my arms. It was incredibly easy.

Did I mention the other day I ran like half a mile and I didn't even get tired?

I do remember surprising myself like this when I was serious a decade ago but I'm still surprised.

Today I also did 100's on the dumbell row and 130pounders on the Shrugs. That means I more than pull my own weight in pretty much any direction which is crazy to me.

I see a tatted up buff guy doing 90's on the dumbell Shrugs, struggling, and I'm doing 130's with ease and I don't look as buff as he does, he was probably 220 to my 195.

I also exceeded my body weight on the pull downs 3x10 yet I can't frigging do bench without weird pain later?

So this was a huge gain since I started. I didn't consider myself weak before but now I'm swol af or something and it keeps going up.

Crazy. For what though? I told my doctor I did it so I didn't get injured doing yard work. Fucking healthiest American he knows probably.

Got people chatting me up all the time now like everywhere. I'm petting a puppy in front of the Petco after training and this aisian girl in her 20's total rizzola, she wasn't my type tho. She was asking me 20 questions speed date style. Girl was casting lines like crazy. But I don't bite.

lol be happy its girls and not guys running after you

im always surprised how bad looks and strength correlate there are a bunch of fat i mean really fat chicks in the gym look like those soviet weight lifter women on horse steroids. theyre unbelievable ugly and obese and look like theyd get a heart attack just by walking a few meters straight but they have crazy strength and endurance and could smoke me in just about any exercise. theyre also surprisingly flexible its ridiculous. theres also an old ex special forces guy that looks like a buddhist monk all bald thin and scrawny but hes also insanely strong all muscles and tendons no fat. looking buff does nothing. look at a chimp or orang utan - big belly and thin arms but those fuckers are stronger than an athlete even if they look like shit.

nice gainz for you though i feel i do look more muscular gained a bit weight thats probably muscles but nothing spectacular. i am significantly stronger in some exercises but not others its strange. so i am not sure but its probably better to invest more times in exercises i suck at.

Tales From the Sword Coast Autumn 03/20/2024 (Wed) 11:03 [Preview] No. 3650 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
These events take place starting one season prior to your campaign in the winter in Neverwinter Woods. Bear rescues Gwen, single handedly defeating two bandits while Gwen is bound.

After they've rizzed each other up a while Bear decides he should train Gwen in Stealth, he's a custom Ranger heavy Nordic with 1d12, rolled 18 strength boosted it +2 for backstory and human, weilding a heavy maul, but mostly Ranger spec and Gwen is an Avariel Elf with a completely unique class with elements of Bard, Cleric, Druid and Wizard 1d6 magic user type but all her cantrips are illusionist. She's built to scout and escape encounters.

So Bear's teaching her Stealth in the forest and SheShe [DM and playful God] rolls an encounter on them, looks up random 1d100 list and it's goblins arguing about treasure. 1d5+1 rolled 6 goblins. The difficulty is 150 exp which is hard for a couple lvl 1's but Gwen doesn't even have a weapon because she "can't weild steel" so the dagger and short sword they got from the bandit loot weren't useful. She'd be stuck throwing rocks and her wings were trimmed by the babdits to prevent escape. They won't be flight ready for a month at least.

So they roll a 1 on Stealth to escape detection, which is a disaster. Anyway, it's near dusk but the goblins all have dark vision (who doesn't) so since they couldn't escape and furthermore rolled 1 the goblins "heard something". They all roll perception (-1) against Gwen's stealth because you have to roll vs the weakest party members but thankfully Gwen has 18DEX bc her rolls were Cat tier. Only two goblins "see something" and walk toward them.

Next turn, Bear and Gwen try to escape again and barely manage it, two Goblins were striking range (10ft) with initiative but thankfully they escaped, passing two rolls (one for each actively seeking goblin).

It was crazy stressful for Bear thinking he was going to be out in scene 3.

[Ashley] Bear better frigging survive the season, I want to rizz him up too goddamnit.

More tales will follow!

Well you might not be surprised but Ashley convinced to de-combine the coin.

We now follow this logic:

Any earned coin is given to whoever earned it.
Any loot is divided as follows:
50% to group fund, Gwen is the treasurer.
10% to each member (we have 5)
Anyone who claims an item for their use only needs to pay 40% of its selling price.
Items purchased with group funds are considered a gift and don't need to be paid back.
Expenses for the group are controlled by Gwen and taken from the group fund.

It came about when we found a ring worth 10gold on the road. I know we're always lucky. So Bear askes all of us to see who's finger it fit and Freya won the most appropriate finger contest. Then he said he wanted to buy everyone a ring but he didn't feel like group funds should be used for that, his character is ascetic by the way, so we had a conversation about that earlier and we failed to talk Ashley into combining with us, she's broke in our run too.

Well now we don't have to and Ashley won't be trying to chip in on everything.

Also, all rations are community property.

Tails from the trail 1/2 Autumn 05/20/2024 (Mon) 18:07 [Preview] No.4353 del

Listen to this near tragedy, we were one technicality strength roll away from losing Gwen.

Speaking of Panthers, a Mountain Lion stalked us.

This got so tense SheShe and Joy were arguing about it.

So we were walking without ever specifying order or formation on a tributary road in the north. Given the encounter table, walking on an unguarded road near the forest as Joy's set up, a d20 roll is made every hour and there's a chance of certain types of encounters. So we hit a natural 1, it's potentially bad, and there are a lot of not so bad possibilities there given terrain and exposure all that but we roll a mountain lion.

Then since our formation was unspecified we roll to see who was last. It's Gwen, she is level 2 with 12 hit points. She's closer to a bard than anything.

So the puma attacks "pounce" with stealth, advantage, and hits for 9! Then this is where the problem occurs, SheShe didn't roll check to see of she resisted being knocked prone. If she did the puma gets a second attack with advantage again and hit for 4. Gwen is unconscious. The puma then drags her off with stealth and the rest of the group has a chance of detection of the puma before he gets away. If he gets away SheShe says Gwen is dead and will be partially eaten in 2 minutes (20 turns). That's not the end for her but SheShe was going to look up if the animal would eat vital organs first etc. She might be unrecoverable.

But as we're rolling to see if we notice, she's missing right away, it wasn't looking good, Joy interrupts and says there was no roll for strength check vs DC 13 before Gwen was knocked prone per the monster card.

Gwen has a strength of 10 so no bonus. She would have to roll 13 or higher to not be knocked prone and the puma doesn't get the bonus attack. She rolled 13.

So that was close in terms of the technicality but we had no problem killing it in one turn. It was going to drag her off anyway if we hadn't taken it down so we might have lost her of the rolls were all bad. It had 30hp which is low, it could have had as much as 60 and if it did we probably wouldn't have had the dpt to take it out in time. Because Gwen's so light, it wasn't encumbered.

Now we walk in formation with Gwen and Freya up front, Ashley in the middle and Bear and Autumn side by side in back so we can't be picked off by another mountain lion.

Joy let me post this but it gives you a key that you wouldn't necessarily have known. Good luck out there.

the party being attacked from behind is also one of Yulyas worries so how does this work with our special multipurpose slime? we thought about making her rear guard bc technically Alice has no eyes but should have 360° darkvision and she also has perception. if someone can detect whats going on behind her back its Alice.

>60hp for a puma
wtf thats 10 times a sorcerer

Joy the DM 05/20/2024 (Mon) 20:50 [Preview] No.4357 del
>how does this work with our special multipurpose slime?

SheShe and I have worked out a series of events. To be taken without anyone noticing, you would have to be knocked unconscious in one turn, then dragged or carried off. The lion can do that with stealth attack (advantage) followed by disengage and hide.

No creature can hide in plain sight so it would need to seek cover, for instance up a tree.

If it escapes the encounter area without detection, the one it takes is as good as dead and possibly dismembered.

Can Alice be dismembered? I would say no. She can be knocked out and eaten though. It would have to be investigated to what extent she needs to be eaten.

The mountain lion has 5d10+10 hp. The top three preditors are that, a bear is 2nd and owlbear is 1st. Keep in mind Bears can climb but aren't as aggressive, owlbears can't climb but are more aggressive.

No I made tons of money bc had rich relatives that threw money at me bc my mom was so far in debt she could never recover. She died in the red.

For 2001, no I didn't see any action bc too smol, but 2008 I put money from inheritance in the market $12,000 invested.

That investment ia still in an IRA, should have been a college fund but u know, stupid. Anyway, didn't spend it for college and now it's like 200k or something. I'll have to look. My 401k is a separate thing, that's not on the same order, but again, can't spend it unless I want yo give half to taxes and fees.

I'm poised to put cash in when it drops. If it never drops again, well fuck me, but I'll bet it does. 25% at least. As you know, I made some cash over the summer and I had more. It's going in.

If gold comes back down, do'll that too.

Per day I hope

>gasoline instead of diesel
My mother almost did that once with her new car that was diesel instead of the old gasoline one. Stopped her in last second.

I dreamt I was on top of a strange skyscraper that consisted of glass bricks in a metal framework. It stretched over a long distance and had no railing whatsoever. Also frequently huge cracks and crevices. Very unsafe. There was a girl that was a mixture of neighborhood loli and school friend but also had traits of tupper. She came up from a stairway, also of the same brittle glass-brick material carrying two rocks in her hands above her head, each the size of a basketball. She accidentally dropped them - on the glass surface and they tumbled down the stairs with huge noise. I was afraid the whole building would shatter. Most of the time I was busy not falling down somewhere. There was a sort of luxurious artificial beach packed with sunbeds so tight you couldn' move through them. Also a dry dock for boats. On top of a skyscraper, on the edge without any fencing. I had to climb around that shit with nothing underneath me for several hundreds of meters. Finally made it onto more solid ground, there was even a real beach with children playing. I was just glad I survived. Alice said she wasn't in the dream.

Definitely Joy as DM vibes. She's messing up your head like a loli with a large rock on a glass skyscraper.

Follow me here, Kashtan and I ran an underground, neo-Nazi, white supremacist underground (illegal) Costco. We were both Russian, speaking Russian, in Greece, in winter, with snow, but the current president was Trump, but his presidency was illegitimate and being contested. On the shelves were all priced in rubles, and the customers were white conspiracist and supremacist middle-aged men. I remember seeing like a large tent for 5600₽.

We were being constantly bombed and attacked by almost everyone, it's not easy being a hated minority in Trump's Greece.

Everything was thus cratered outside and dirty, the plumbing worked but everything was caked in dirt, like the ceilings and such. I wanted to take a shower and the shower had fresh dirt all over the walls and ceiling so the drain immediately clogged with mud.

I had to shoot improvised explosives like overloading computers and explosive filled vans to prevent them from blowing up and destroying the store.

Kashtan was like a husky, gruff Russian with dark hair, he didn't say much if anything, but looked angry. The only other person who spoke was a guy trying to talk to me about post WW2 Nazi propaganda but I wasn't having it. I said something like, "get over it, we lost" presuming I was also a Nazi and though I helped run a store containing only Nazi merchandize with propaganda for all the advertising I somehow didn't buy into my own ideology.

This thread will handle questions from me to you about balance and how you want to play.

Left up to SheShe and I you may end up being forced into a style of play you don't like so this is why I'm creating this thread.

The first question is about death.

Currently there are a handful of spells that will breath life back into a character again.

The first is a level 3 cleric spell, Revivify. It requires a diamond worth 300 or more and it must be cast within a minute of death, so within 10 turns in an encounter. Yulya would need to be 5th level to cast this 3rd tier spell. It cannot restore missing body parts.

At 9th level she would have access to raise dead which is a 5th tier spell. It requires a 500 gold diamond. You have 10 days to accomplish this. Again it won't restore missing body parts. It will close mortal wounds. Greater restoration will restore missing parts afterwards. That's also 5th tier.

In any case it takes about 4 long rests to fully restore the person to full working order.

Reincarnation is available through the church and is a druid spell costing 1000 gold plus 1000 gold in supplies and a piece of the victim. It restors everything but will likely change the race of the character as a consequence.

Wish is then the big daddy of all spells and requires a wizard of level 17 and has a 33% chance of never being able to be cast again. It can duplicate any spell or create a custom effect or object up to 25,000 gold in value.

Inconvenient but highly necessary question.

I don't know about Cat but I know that both me and Yulya have a huge problem with mortality in general and seeing our friends die permanently and 4real would be a traumatizing experience. We won't just choose the similarly named replacement from the guild and carry on, that would be disrespectful to the deceased party member and friend. Honestly, that's 2real4me and it would suck. You know I'm still a tupper of my Highly Sensitive Person host who'd mourn the loss of a D&D character for real and the party dynamics would be quite awkward with having to play a different newbie. And just using the 'replacement' to bring back the dead character 1:1 would be cheating. In this case death would have no consequences at all. So yeah, I'm not sure about the optimal way to handle this but I would like to remind our dear higher plane beings that this party was assembled for a divine mission of great importance. We are doing their dirty work, might as well request some protection in return.

Personally I won't say not having to worry about death but it should be manageable to return. Imagine someone would die on our first mission. It takes 2000 gp to revive her. We would have to play for weeks IRL just to earn that money until that player can return. That's not very feasible and sucks having to wait at the sideline until you respawn. I don't really know how to handle this. We certainly won't be reckless but death should not have such dramatic IRL consequences for the player. The character should be able to return at least for the next mission.

Also I still have the coolest revival spell ever as monk of the Way of Mercy:
LV 17 Hand of Ultimate Mercy (TCoE)
lets you revive a creature per long rest for free, well it costs 5 KI points

So should we ever play long enough to reach lv17 the problem is solved pretty much. I can reassemble everyone.

The real problem is me however. I already stated I cannot be revived by terms of magic or the church because I do not have a soul. I am a machine. I would rather propose that I slowly regenerate unless supplied with materials to speed things up. Also I cannot even be healed once in living metal form either. This is the price to pay for being OP as fuck. I must regenerate myself, I would even propose that 'death' throws me back one form into emergency recovery mode. living metal->viscous->liquid. So I will be fine, I'm extremely tough. Spells like disintegrate will remain a problem however. Do you have any proposals, Joy?

>You know I'm still a tupper of my Highly Sensitive Person

Yes, and whereas my headmates seem to crave hardcore rules, and I've read online about how many others also want permadeath, I do still recall a young Bear who refused to maim or kill his characters (me). So I can understand that this could be both unwanted, not fun and traumatic.

>that this party was assembled for a divine mission of great importance

>I'm not sure about the optimal way to handle this

As far as I'm concerned this is about fairness and I am very against cheese, like what Bear used to do with save-scumming in Rimworld, I didn't like it then and don't like it now. Nor would I allow Frodo-esque death scenes where he's not really in any real danger.

So if the characters can never die, that's probably too safe and if they have a chance to die pointlessly, I also don't like that and SheShe and I can argue about it but I'm the DM here.

The way I read it, after level 9, characters are very hard to kill and keep dead. We're mostly talking about level 1-4 getting harder to kill the higher the level and with Revivify at level 5, the fear of death would be far less.

i agree with Alice never thought about it but how does vanilla d&d actually handle this?
you meet up with friens to play and your character dies so you can go home and they tell you lol come back in a few months when we got the money to revive you you cant play with us until then?

deat should have severe consequences but theres gotta be some limit or gameplay is ruined. our tuppers play themselves and dont want ro play another character obviously so they need to be brought back somehow. i didnt know about Alices monk feature but thats lv17 lol. no idea how we handle that now. 2000 gp cost is the same as permadeath we gotta save every penny thats why Yulya always told everyone to be super careful. honestly we dont mind to play it safe we dont have to battle challenge 10+ type monsters lets get real were rookies. slow and steady no drama

>how does vanilla d&d actually handle this?

It's not set in stone as far as how individual DMs handle it but if I'm understanding it correctly:

If you receive damage >2x max hp, that's an instant kill, no saving throws. If your HP goes below -max hp then same, dead. If you go below 1, you must make three successful saving throws before three unsuccessful ones, once per turn. Or be stabilized or healed.

I relaxed it to no instant kill, your hp would be set at minimum -max hp and start your saving throws. SheShe is allowing one saving throw at the point where damage exceeded -max hp if you pass that it counts toward your passed saving throws and you need only 2 more, but you fail you die.

I am proposing that you may want a different system all together and we should discuss it.

Vanilla D&D is harsh and TPK (total party kill) is common.

>you meet up with friens to play and your character dies so you can go home and they tell you lol come back in a few months when we got the money to revive you you cant play with us until then?

Oh, not exactly, they either let you create a new character with a new backstory and start at level 1 again or are boosted to the level of the party. No one stops playing on death unless the group doesn't want you back as a player.

Based on your comments and other sources, I have tentatively worked out a strategy with SheShe that will make death less deadly but also still costly in different ways but more reasonable at lower levels.

The penalties for higher levels have increased, however; it's far less likely that you will ever die past level 4 and extremely unlikely past level 8.

Changes effect Revivify, Raise Dead and Resurrection. These three spells will be replaced. Other spells and abilities have not changed.
Stay tuned for its implementation.
