    @LP, we've got a Bard and I was a Paladin, but no revivify and sadly all the melee and going down once already, our Bard had burned their spell slots anyway.
    And yeah, the crits just kept on coming, haha.

    On the other hand, that sounds like a pretty crazy session. Nothing like blindly diving into a portal for a thrill. XD

    DM'd a fairly tough campaign once where any character who died came back as an undead version.... Dead NPCs and monsters kept reappearing too. It was a lot of fun. Barbarian zombie tore his own arm off to use as a club. Cleric who got partially digested by a gelatinous cube ended up a skeleton.


    Yeah, one of my party members pilfered my gold early on. Since we've been out in the wilderness, my character was taking the high road and not mentioning it, saving that for later.
    Now she's dead, and I may or may not have joked about her coming back as a revenant to get those coins. XD

    Lost my first character to a werewolf encounter and a string of natural 20s (publicly rolled) by our GM last weekend. :(


    One of our party was scouting out behind us because we'd picked something up but weren't sure what it was. Natural 1 on her stealth roll. Spotted, bola'd. Called for help, and our team immediately rushed towards her approximate position. I had Expeditious Retreat so cast that and made excellent time. Found her fighting two werewolves (thankfully she managed to get out of the bola that had hit her or else things might have gone very differently), but as she can fly that left me the only target in reach of the creatures. Flanked pretty quickly, I managed to hold my own for a round or two, did some decent damage thanks to a recently acquired magical weapon, but then the crits started. Went down once, got brought up immediately by the other player. The two other members of our party showed up, but I went down again at the top of the turn order and took free hits due to being unconscious, putting me on 2 failed death saves. My turn next, failed the death save roll.
    Party made it out, after brutally taking out their rage on the werewolves (who didn't have much left to go), but no way to revive me.

    Honestly I think my GM took it harder than I did, but still sucked to lose a character.

    It's very much a PR thing. Rubber bullets and their derivatives are still entirely capable of killing someone, so they more or less had to change the term from non-lethal. Plus it captures various other versions like beanbag rounds, etc.
    End of the day most of these are fired from shotguns and grenade launchers, making them equivalent in size to either a shotgun slug or a 40mm grenade. They may or may not be propelled slightly slower than the regular ammo, but they're still big projectiles hitting pretty hard, and getting hit in the wrong place can be lethal. I recall there being strict rules about firing at people who have their back to you because of damage to the neck/spinal column and crown of the skull concerns. The main difference between these rounds and bullets/slugs is that they haven't been designed to penetrate into the body. That's it.

    So yes, less than lethal is both a catch-all term and a PR thing.

    Had to do this last year. My subjective $0.02...

    Dyson, massively overpriced. If you can get a great deal sure. Very easy to use. Not a long term purchase. Wall mounting is a pain and I don't care how cool some of them seem, it's a fucking vacuum cleaner on your wall. Risk of being used as a hat rack. Charge life for the cordless models varies.

    Shark, medium low quality, lower price, you get what you pay for. Won't last years. Avoid the lower end deals unless you want to get another vac in two years.

    Hoover, overpriced but solid quality. Will last. Tend to need band, bulb, and filter replacements on a regular basis but there are cheaper alts to Hoover's own.

    Miele, you pay more but totally get what you pay for. Superior quality, lighter, minimal maintenance and parts if any. If you can find a price you can live with, I reco this.


    Will add to the Miele recommendation. Aside from the immortal Tellus my parents still have as backup, the family has gone through several vacuumes before ending up with the Miele, and I bought one too, no regrets. Not even that expensive tbh.

    ok so i clearly didn't realise how this conversation business thing works.
    i click the chat button at the top, when joining it says "you have been kicked from the chat room"
    On october 02 I tried joining around 10:24am gmt-5, so you can check the logs for that time. that is if you still have logs for that far back.

    Okay, did the download thing. Now, if the thread were to get deleted would I still be able to view it from the save file? (Probably a silly question but I want to make sure the save is dependant on the original URL)
