Bitch Please - peanuts

Line of Sight

This came up in my last game. What are the actual rules for drawing line of sight? Can I shoot at a bad guy from behind another character? I thought this was represented by the -4 for firing into melee, but the DM said (with some uncertainy, because he wasn't sure) that the character blocked line of sight. I flipped through the PHB and the SRD looking for the exact rules on drawing line of sight, but couldn't find what I was looking for.

Thanks!

Eberron - Let's get it started

Hey, folks. I just posted this invite in eberron_dnd and have a couple people who are interested. I have never played in an Eberron game even though I have a love affair with the campaign setting. I want to see if I can get a Play-By-Email game going. Sure it isn't the same as a table-top game, but my local gaming group broke up and I have been unable to get a good group back together. (BTW, local is Seattle/Renton for anyone who may be interested in a face-to-face game.)

So, to remedy this, my choice is a Play-By-Email game. I'll even GM the thing if I have to, I just want to play around in Eberron. If you're at all interested in this, please comment with what character you'd be interested in playing. I really only need two or three more to get this going.

I found this in the Anarchist Forum...

D&D Online Anarchy over at SlashDot
Oh my Fucking Goddess!!!!!

You have to read this thread over on Slashdot. While it's under an article about the new D&DO game.....well, just see for yourself.


++Bah, Necromancers are the CEOs of D&D. Outsourcing mindless killing jobs which could have gone to hard working gnomes.++

In the end it works for everyone's favor. Only by using the most cost-effective available labor can a necromantic treasure retrieval effort stay competitive in todays fiercely competitive adventuring environment. This, in turn, means an economic boom for local businessess. The gnomes can find new jobs in supplying equipment for the armies of the dead, and if they can't, at least they'll starve to death while lying on streets paved with gold - and once dead they have a guaranteed job at the employment of Necromantic Might Inc.

Now, some of you might say that being a mindless zombie is not a dream job, but I ask you: are your day-to-day jobs really that different ?
