Yeah! Some real armor, cause golden dragon scale armor is balls! I mean, one green slime drops on you and BAM! That shit’s gone.
Mean ol’ green slime.
Hey, even a slime’s gotta eat… And what is dragonscale if not dead hide of dragon? And everyone knows dragons are completely delicious. ^^ Nom nom nom…
Heh. That’s why one of the early enchantments I put on any decent armor is blueshine or some equivalent so some stupid low CR slime or rust monster doesn’t take it out. One should make the GM use a bit more imagination if he wants to take your stuff.
Makes the armor immune to acid and rust effects, and grants a bonus to Hide. At least it does in DDO.
Wouldn’t hide already be immune to rust on account of not being metal? BTW, do rust monsters eat all kinds of metals or just iron, it’s derivatives and similar rust-able metals? How about coating steel with zinc or whatever?
Rust monsters are totally jazzed to nom on all kinds of non-ferrous metals. That’s how magic they are.
Figured it would be that way. Hide should still be safe, apart from the tiny buckles and studs etc.
Braggadocio, thy name is Martin.
It wouldn’t be so bad if his bragging at least was more stylish, cool and cryptic–as in a big joke that the GM wouldn’t get.
Crunchy crackers with herring.
Oh gods, I’m drooling.
Sounds salty. Spreek je Nederlands?
I don’t speak that language.
But hooray for herring! Maybe I’ll buy some next time.
By the way, congratulations on your 700th strip, Kevin. Not many webcomics reach that number.
Yay and GO Kevin!!
Thanks guys! I’m pretty happy about it myself!
Congratulations. Here’s to 700 more? 😉
but bunker! good gear means nothing when the person behind the character can’t properly use it!
you can have god gear but a shit player is still shit =O
likewise a awesome player in rags is still awesome =)
That’s just a cheap excuse for cheap a DM to not give any loot!
Agreed. Lousy gear is still lousy no matter who uses it. If a captain hands a soldier a pea shooter and says “You’re such a great marksman you can kill even with that” it’s time for the great marksman to roll his eyes and quit before he dies. Maybe he’s so good he could still kill a couple people with it but… no, just no. Not gonna accept it.
What about a decent player in awesome gear?
I personally like gear that looks like shit but is in fact epic.
Daemon scale loin cloth of replenishment! Wards against blades, arrows, corrossive substances, and anything that has to do with crushing. Gives plus 2 to stamina.
Also looks good on the beach.
“Put your best armor where it’ll do the most good!”
I can’t but notice there’s a little Achilles Heel there- with only the loins being protected.
But protection against crushing attacks, that’s important down there.
What about being ripped out and swallowed by your ex? Does it protect against that?
