"Need to D&D more"

So you can just swap out flaws and stuff on a whim?
He reminds me of Red Mage from 8-Bit theater.

It's less of a "swap out" as an upgrade, so not a huge leap of logic. Most game systems would probably make him wait until a new level, but from the standpoint of running a smooth game it makes more sense to allow him to upgrade the flaw when something triggering the upgrade actually happens.

And so, like Luke, Zoro has learned the true meaning of DnD 3.5; roleplaying AND being OP

"DnD 3.5"

Did 3.5 include flaws? They would have made character creation take a lot longer, but the bonuses would have been worth it. If they do exist in 3.5, can someone direct me?

You can find Flaws and Traits in Unearthed Arcana. Flaws were something you took at first level to get an extra feat (just take one that doesn't hurt your character much), traits provided a bonus and a penalty.

And now we see the great turning point in Zoro's character. He is no longer tagging along, but commits himself wholeheartedly to Luffy, as he never has to any other man before. Now, he and Luffy shall become as one, and from this union, he shall emerge a man.

That's a deadpool thing. He will spout these very gay sexy time things about his buddy Cable, and then go, "But not in a gay way!"

I could analyze this, but it would be probing too deep. The sun does not shine, and there are dark things deep in his... mind.

Talk about times where a player had complete control over the destiny of another player, and how that turned out.

The most close i've been to that is one time i played a god of magic in anima. Though i downgraded my own powers from the start (since, albeit legal, my build could wipe out half the solar system at level 2... literally), i still had an inhuman comprehension of a lot of stuff and enough powers and means to actually change the fate of some of the other players (actually all of them, but only two had a backstory in wich my powers could mean a real difference). The thing is that at one moment, one of our players stopped comming to the game sessions due to work, so the DM decided to kill him at the same time of my brother's character (he just wanted to play someone else) and had the souls of both of them trapped by the demon who resided on my brother character's heart becoming links of the chains it carried, but in the last moment i forced myself to my limit bringing all my powers back for about five rounds. In those five rounds i summoned the mother of all thunderbolts over our enemies (who just blocked it with a mountain, since among them was my evil twin of sorts), forced the links open and back to the form of their souls, compressed each soul into a stone and teleported the hell out of there with everyone while leaving behind one of my avatars unleashing a storm over our foes in order to hinder them and make them unable to follow. Thus, i ended up with a pair of stones that had the soul of both characters and from wich i could give them life anew whenever i wanted (or in this case, asked to come back).

Ah, that takes me back. I remember I was feeling very irked about the lack of decent unarmed combat builds that didn't involve monks-I'd recently discovered Superior Unarmed Strike, and decided that I would roll up a burly gnoll named Higgs, an LE mercenary who enjoyed killing, drinking, and gambling in equal measure. One of my friends decided to roll up a half-crazed kobold barbarian, who dreamed of one day ruling his own empire. After some conferring, we decided that Klignack(the kobold) had hired Higgs to be his personal bodyguard/enforcer.

For a long time, the working relationship between the pair was merely professional-Higgs loved having an employer so prone to danger (who also paid him extra for especially messy kills). The real "my destiny is in your hands" bit came further down the line, when we'd earned enough levels and equipment to start being important people-Klignack had claimed the fortress of the latest villain we had been hired to kill as his own, and his Leadership score was starting to attract some acceptable peons. I had been eying Complete Warrior's Kensai class (enchanting natural weapons, making Concentration checks for a +8 strength bonus, replacing Reflex saves with Concentration checks, good stuff) for a while, and decided to swear Higgs' oath of service to Klignack. Henceforth, Higgs was no mere mercenary, but a sworn killer in service to the new Kobold Empire. With a small, but fanatical army in tow, the kobold began a vicious and highly effective campaign of conquest, slaughtering the local garrisons, taking conscripts from conquered towns and villages, and having Higgs rip rival commanders' limbs off with his absurd strength score.

If it wasn't obvious by now, the party had gone off the rails something fierce-in rode the local elf Wizard-King, a recurring NPC who was the setting's so-called "Big Good" (more like Big Pompous Ass, but that's a different story). He rode at the head of an army roughly three times the size of Klignack's, fully intending to put down the "upstart monster". The DM could easily have declared Rocks Fall, but he would handwave something that could be settled via Da Rulez, no matter how badly he wanted to punish us. In the ensuing battle, however, he forgot a few things.

1.) A character who pins an opponent can keep the opponent from speaking.
2.) Higgs could out-Grapple Huge opponents.

At the end of the battle, the Kobold Empire was destroyed. The party had been slaughtered by vicious spells, and Klignack himself had hit -10 hitpoints after much Diehard-induced manliness. However, Higgs had kept his oath-"To carry out Klignack's will and destroy His enemies". A platoon of bowmen surrounded the bleeding, dying gnoll-in his clawed hands, the head of the Wizard-King, decapitated via a Nat. 20 on a Strength check (with STR of about 33). Higgs died in a hailstorm of arrows, his final words a barking, hateful laugh.

Though the DM was rightfully peeved at us (this was one of those super-edgy no rez settings), he admitted after a few drinks that it was actually a pretty rad ending. The next adventure we played in his setting, there was considerable societal upheaval caused by the wizard-king's death.

TL;DR - A gnoll tore off an elf king's head, and it was cool.

Well there was that one time in Paranoia where I was playing a character with l33t hax0r skill. I decided to sign up another player for "voluntary" suicide. It was really hilarious watching the party look on in confusion as our teammate was dumped in a gas chamber by a group of burly men.

Then a bit later the rest of the party got high off really delicious burgers so I had to call med-droids... and caused a TPK. How was I supposed to know that the medical staff kills you in a Paranoia game?

And later still I got 10 minutes alone with an Ultraviolet computer. Immediately made myself and the awesome party leader Ultraviolets, promoted the rest of the party up to Violet, and demoted the one guy I didn't like from Yellow down to Infrared and assigned him to be my personal bitch. Good times.

Lesee...


Luffy could pretty easily be the element of Laughter, He's consistently silly and wound up smiling even on the exectution block

Sanji would make as decent of a fit to Generosity as Rarity does. Most of the time they're both shallow and thougtless but when somebody really needs help they're the first to sacrifice to give to them.

Chopper would Be Kindness by far the best fit in the one piece universe little to no explaination needed.

Honesty would be difficult to embody in the strawhat crew, Nami and Usopp are horendous liars, Nico Robin isn't even honest with herself, Brooke created a whole alternate persona for the express purpose of getting a trip to reunite with his friends. Franky might fit this since he is brutaly honest to a fault but he's also the only one close to being a Full caster and thus the element of magic (in the any sufficiently advanced !!SCIENCE!! sense anyway)

"Just a thought."

I think that Luffy would be honesty, Brook would be laughter, Zoro would be loyalty, Chopper would be kindness, Sanji would be generosity(mostly to women), and I think Nami might be magic with her Clima-Tact.

This is sort of off-topic, I am aware, but I would just like to say that I think cory is going to floor EVERYONE with his ability to role-play in the next comic.
And on yet another topic, this comic is awesome. I vote for it constantly on twc, and I never used to do that for anybody.

"Well..."

At this point, it's safe to assume that most of the straw hat crew draws their phenomenal power from 3.5's loopholes and creating 'strategically broken'characters (intentionally and unintentionally).

Which is to say... Yes. Yes they will.

Also, I'm honestly desperate to see Cory's role-playing in the next scene. Zoro's vow to Luffy in the Anime was one of the most moving moments in the series' beginning. While I honestly like the DnD related comedy, now is the PERFECT time to break it up with some good ol' fashioned drama.

"Flaws"

so I was in a game where we were told that we needed to build maxed out powergaming characters. I was told that I could not use flaws without expressly asking permission for each flaw. The rest of the group was free to do as they please (I guess it shows who was the resident power gamer). So I went to work trying to be as OP as possible. I found it through digging through green ronin publishing and finding their psionics, and a feat that granted +5 skill points from the normal psionic books, as well as a few choice things from Gary gygax's race builder I fashioned an absurd OP character.

step 1 put everything you can into int, step two play a thief from Iron heroes and convince GM that it is okay. (this gets you (12+int)x4. otherwise play a rogue for 8+, dump stat everything you have to to max out int. now spend those skill points in sets of 5's to get the equivalency of one feat, but thanks the the race builder one bonus feat equals a +2 stat bonus, which means an extra 4 skill points, (note this only works at level 2, or works for infinite power at level 3). we were level 5. So I got to boost all my stats to absurdity I think I was in the 100's. Then the psionic feats from green ronin which can be found in green ronin's advanced players guide. with said feats you can get enough free action move something and move greater weight to move the sun and the earth each at the speed of light at the same time.

The game ended when I killed the two gods that were fighting in the game by throwing the earth and the sun at each other at the speed of light, thus destroying all of their followers and their planes that they existed on one in the center of the earth and one at the center of the sun.

In the end the game had become some silly farce between two GM's and no one was happy so I destroyed the universe. I will state that without completely breaking the system the psionics from green ronin was actually pretty reasonable it allowed light movement, fire damage and the like but it was still tricky to deal the kind of damage a full mage could but you never really ran out sort of like playing a warlock in 3.5

this is why the conversion of feats to skill points only works 1 way and why Race builder is only used to see what your character should look like at lv 1
