How does the Skill Trick Extreme Leap work?

The skill trick “Extreme Leap” reads:

Extreme Leap [Movement] Your extraordinary leaping ability carries you over great distances. Prerequisite: Jump 5 ranks. Benefit: If you make a horizontal jump of at least 10 feet during your turn, you can spend a swift action to move an additional 10 feet on that turn. Complete Scoundrel, p. 86

So, if a character with a total move of 30 feet takes a move action to ty to leap over a chasm of 20 feet taking a 20 feet running start, does he…

a) …have to make a Jump check DC 10 and use the skill trick “Extreme Leap” to cover the distance over the chasm and has 10 feet of movement left on the other side.

b) …have to make a Jump check DC 20 to cover the distance and get a bonus move of 10 feet once he lands on the other side.

From the Name of the trick and the phrase “your extraodinary leaping abiltiy carries you over great distances” I always assumed the trick adds another 10 feet jumping distance, but rereading the skill I am not sure now.

Is a creature standing in an Antimagic Field subject to the effects of extreme weather produced by Control Weather?

Say, for example, that a person is standing in an Antimagic Field when a disgruntled Druid decides to create a 5 mile radius freezing hailstorm via Control Weather.

Would that person be subject to the effects of the hailstorm? More specifically:

  • What happens to the hailstones that enter the Antimagic Field?
  • What localized weather effects does the person experience? Is the weather within the Antimagic Field somehow the hypothetical weather conditions that would have existed if Control Weather hadn’t been cast?
  • Is the person subject to the effects of extreme cold like the rest of the people within the hailstorm?

Dealing with an extreme player reaction to a PC choice


Preface

We are playing Savage Worlds. My character is an ex-military dishonorable discharge that was granted an opportunity to waive the charge by volunteering for a Black Operation service term instead. The Op resulted in genetic engineering resulting in “Spiderman-like” abilities. The Op was later disbanded, and all records of the Op was dissolved, leaving my PC without any records.

I have had a bad memory for using the “non-lethal” option, and I have only been reminded after the fact where my attacks have ended up killing enemies. This has been dealt with in several ways – leading to a trial and parole, which I willingly submitted to, as “consequences of my actions”.

In our last game, it was reveled that my PC I had been playing for the past few months (in game, over a year) was actually a clone of the original PC, after an odd happenstance where the character was abducted from an NYC hospital, and washed up on the shore in Nova Scotia.

So, the group decided to rescue the “Original”, and my “Clone” decided to worry about the existential issues of being a clone until after the fact. We were then made aware that the original was actually at risk of death, so time became an essential factor.

Upon arrival, we were met with a horde of mutant spider abominations, indicating that the cloning had lost control, and was creating monsters; not just “clones”. We delved a little further, and found that the monsters had created nests in the fallen people of the facility, and we found that one of them bodies was actually still alive, if only barely.

We have 4 PCs, with the following Hindrances (that apply to this situation):

  • Scrapyard Ironman (Heroic)
  • Army Spiderman (Heroic)
  • Robot Samurai (Heroic, Code of Honor)
  • Telepathic/Telekinetic Cop (Heroic, Code of Honor)

The Choice

When we found the survivor, we got into a discussion about what should be done. It led to a 50/50 split to either spend resources to save him, or put him out of his misery in order to preserve the resources in order to preserve our chances at rescuing the Original. The Clone (My PC) and the Robot Samurai were for leaving/killing him, the other two were for spending the resources to save him. The group argued back and forth for about 20 mins (IRL), but I was attempting to put across that time was of the essence. Eventually, it got to a point were I openly declared that I was going to shoot the survivor.

This is the first time I have actively chosen to kill anyone. And I stated it was essentially a necessary evil. I did not want to, but it was needed in order to help save the Original.

The Outcome

The DM allowed other players to attempt to intervene, by way of opposed agility checks. Scrapyard Ironman and the Cop attempted to intervene, but the Robot Samurai did not. I won, so the event happened unhindered. The Scrapyard Ironman player immediately announced that “as soon as we get out of here, you’re out of the (in-game) group”.

I attempted to explain, again, time was of the essence, no one knew this person, this place we were in was evil (it had been established) and our goal was to rescue the Original. Instead, they simply continued to point out my character was Heroic (which I admit, is a valid point), that “this is why I asked for a gun” (which I do not normally carry, but had asked for because my character is almost entirely only melee-capable), and that my character was ex-military so I clearly did not understand the “comrades in arms”, or “no man left behind”, to which the DM reminded everyone that neither they, nor I had the “Code of Honor” Hindrance, and the other two who did, had not responded to the situation.

All the other times I have accidentally killed (i.e. forgotten the non-lethal option) the most I have received from other players is an “oh damn”, or had my “Heroic” Hindrance pointed out, and threatened to be taken away (resulting in confiscation of Power Points).

The Problem

I believe that the reaction from the Scrapyard Ironman player seemed a bit extreme. I’m not sure why; if it was personal, or maybe something to do with my play style, or maybe if it was simply the lack of control of the situation. I know, in order to address and hopefully deal with the situation, I need to talk to the player, but I’m not sure if I should do it one-on-one, or in the group.

Is Kenabres an extreme example for the view on Tieflings and demons at the worldwound?

In an answer to my question: Status of Tieflings with the worldwound defenders? Kenabres was used as an example for how tieflings were viewed.

While creating chars for a worldwound campaign one of my players and I came into a discussion about this. With how much Kenabres itself was mentioned there he thinks that Kenabres is absolutely extreme there while I’m thinking that it is more a typical city there with its views about anything Tiefling and Demonic.

Now my question is: Is Kenabres an extreme example for the view on Tieflings and demons at the worldwound?

DMG rules states Exterme Cold effect, but what of less extreme cold effects?

DMG P110 states that

Whenever the temperature is at or below 0 degrees Fahrenheit, a creature exposed to the cold must succeed on a DC 10 Constitution saving throw at the end of each hour or gain one level of exhaustion. Creatures with resistance or immunity to cold damage automatically succeed on the saving throw, as do creatures wearing cold weather gear (thick coats, gloves, and the like) and creatures naturally adapted to cold climates.

0F (-17C) is what they are referring to. But what if a party stays outside for a week at between 32F (0C) and 0F (-17C) ? That seems pretty cold to me and still could make a normal human suffer from exposure doesn’t it ? Did the game designer produced an errate ? looks like they missed the mark here.

[ Politics ] Open Question : Does anyone just stop, and think, “how did the left get so extreme in a few years”?

I was watching Marianne Williamson’s recent appearance on the Rubin Report, and she literally compared Trump to Hitler. Hahaha (12:25) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BPhH5O6oMpE The left is now comparing Trump to being ‘literally Hitler,’ blumpf, orange man bad. Do you leftists and Democrats really think this? “AOC’s latest: Only Nazis oppose open borders” https://nypost.com/2019/06/18/aocs-latest-only-nazis-oppose-open-borders/ This would be nothing but hilarious if these communists weren’t gaining power in America, and calling Trump, ‘Cheeto man Hitler.’

How can I deal with extreme temperatures in a hotel room?

Recently I’ve been on a business trip in Germany and I had a temperature problem in my hotel room.

Since it was an attic room without air conditioning the temperature rose to unconfortable levels during the day and my only solution to sleeping somewhat comfortably was taking a cold shower right before going to bed. (I don’t particularily like cold showers).

Are there some things and/or life hacks I can apply when I have to face unpleasant temperatures in a hotel room? This could be things to ask for, buy or just simply do.

Also my example is related to heat but I’d also be interested in a solution to a way too cold room.

Note: I tried opening the windows but in the end it didn’t really cool down and I had a couple mosquitos in the room…
