    So... just to be clear here. Are you claiming I am abnormal because I tend to go to bed after the sun comes up?
    It is now 2 a.m.

    Well yeah, humans are diurnal by default. Those who aren't are in a minority, usually due to working night shifts, pulling all-nighter studying sessions, partying, or dealing with insomnia.

    Also, people seem to be taking umbrage with the "hit the DM" comment. "Player/DM needs a smack" or "throw the DMG at him" etc are common statements on the forum, and very very rarely meant to be taken literally. Chill out.

    I see nothing of the sort in either of your posts.

    Why do they need to be brought back to life at all though? I think we're missing some vital context here.

    Two of the salt mummies are former friends of one of the PCs. He has their souls trapped in a gem, which he stole many sessions ago. They believe they can return the souls to the bodies of the mummies, if these are slain (but not utterly destroyed). Hence the danger in turning them with greater turning and turning their bodies to dust.

    Can't they dust them, collect the dust, and then rez them? They don't even need all of the dust, just some of it.

    Oh, there's IMPORTANT CONTEXT missing in Dante's post? I'm shocked, I'm even in disbelief, that this could be so.

    Also, "blow u" is perhaps among the worst ways to mistype I can think of.

    There's a whole world of difference, between "easy fight" and "unwinnable fight".
    You presented the fight as unwinnable, but the encounter is doable. Wasn't this the point of your OP?

    Should this be a constructive criticism?

    I agree that he was a little out of line, but at this point, the best thing we can probably do is to stop commenting on his thread. I'd rather not go for a round 2.

    Blue is sarcasm. Green is sincerity.
    Gray is for pet-peeves or nit-picking.
    And purple is for being weird.

    Leaving aside some of the stylistic harshness reflected in some of the posts . . . this appears to be a really fun and well-thought out adventure. The DM has clearly taken time to make the story compelling and the encounters interesting. This particular battle seems quite winnable to me, even if it's not a sure thing.

    What's particularly interesting to me, here, is that we have several participants from a game having a meta discussion about the game with us. I know it didn't start this way, but we ended up having two players, the DM, and it looks like a former player in this group chime in. I think this is quite cool.

    Given that the game appears to be online, it would be pretty damn hard to hit anyone.

    As said, the whole "physical assault" is an hyperbole, often used around here, and for the rest... if someone feels insulted, there's a report button.
