Not really. The disparity is there but is way over-played by the internet and relies on specific playstyles that retards like you assume as the only ones possible.
If you dare to wrongthink in the wrong DnD forum (GitP, RPG.net) you will unleash a shitstorm because the usual suspect will passively-aggresively attack you with the support of the mods.
But that's fine, history already defeated them.

You fucked up. Any guard serving a wizard should have been smart enough to poison the caltrops, pour down the oil, set up a barricade and try to smoke them out with oil and fire before the 1 hour mark so the short rest was interrupted. After they run from the smoke, wizard should have fireballed them as the guards threw oil on them, maximizing the fireball damage and giving them 1d6 fire damage at the start of each turn. With the caltrops reducing their speed to 0, the ongoing fire damage, lack of short rest, and Wizard support pickup up concentration checks with things like magic missile, you could have been able to teach them a proper lesson. If the NPCs you are playing are smart, never give your players a chance. Read up on history military tactics and become creative. You have 4-6 players in your table, they should be able to outsmart just one person, or at least prepare enough to avoid getting fucked.

Just so you know, a thief in round 1 can deal with a hand crossbow and rapier, though I'm not gonna assume bullshit like booming blade and warcaster:

Turn 1: 1d6+5 + 10d6 attack 1, 1d6+5 bonus attack
draw rapier
Reaction after turn 1: 1d8+5 + 10d6
Turn 2: Drop rapier, 1d6+5 + 10d6 attack 1, 1d6+5 bonus attack
Draw rapier/ pick up rapier
Reaction after turn 2: 1d8+5 + 10d6

Or otherwise the extra turn gave them 2d6+2d8+20+20d6 damage.

Considering that damage is most important at the start of combat (thinning enemy numbers so enemies output less damage) and that combat will only last 4 or 5 turns perhaps at most, inquisitive rogue's level 17 is absolutely laughable.
But, okay, the rogue had sentinel but it didn't proc, or had another source of reaction sneak attack like haste or action surge from fighter dip or riposte from fighter dip or a teammate using commander's strike or enemy movement/dissonant whispers, a magical item, etc etc.
They'd deal, with an extra turn:
2d6+10 + 10d6 damage, or about 15d6. Right at round 1.

oh the Prequels are still garbage, I still say Attack of the Clones is unwatchable even. Sad to say but the only reason the prequel period is even remotely interesting to me is due to the Clone wars cartoon series actually doing a decent job salvaging that train wreck.

As for Disney, I didn't really ever delve too deeply into the EU so losing it was no big loss to me. As for the movies and shows put out since... it's weird, Rebels, Rogue One, and Solo I found to be very good, very entertaining. The Force Awakens was more... forgettable, not terrible, just "meh". TLJ at the time of watching felt very long, and I let a lot of stuff slide but i do understand a lot of what people are saying about how they found it infuriating Some of that is probably because I gave the writers too much credit, and some of it is admittedly because I just generally, when it comes to criticism, have a habit of going easy on fantasy and science fiction stories, they have to be SUPER awful to get me to say something bad about them like, Starship Troopers, and Crystal Skull-level awful

So, for me, since Disney bought the SW franchise, it's been hit-or-miss, which is about the same thing I felt when Lucas had it.

Though I will grant you this, Disney had a golden goose of a license and could've just sat on it and just rake in the licencing revenue, but I think after they got Marvel and turned that into an epic-tier juggernaut of a franchise, they probably thought they could do the same for Star Wars.
>>
>>62535260
At least there weren't too many lens flares
>>
>>62535679
Star Wars was already an epic-tier juggernaut.

Was.
>>
>>62535698
I think it's a bit too early to say "was." They've still made all their money back and then some from the sale in under six years. Solo flopped with somewhere around a 100 million dollar loss, but there's definite reasons outside of TLJ's fan reception for that.

What will really decide for its future is how IX is received. I can see it making less than a billion, but that'd still be in line with the usual drop in sales over the course of a trilogy, and depending on how big of a drop it is could still be far more than any of George's films (adjusted for inflation, of course).

Personally, I consider it quite possible. Mind that Wind Drakes, Stone Drakes, and technically Firehawks (the Firelands ones) are ancestors of Proto-Dragons, which they became after not ending up in Elemental Prisons. Trolls being descended from more humanoid elementals makes sense with that in context, and djinn doesn't have to be the only origins, just as not all dragons comes from the same elemental flying beings.
For example, Drogbar are sometimes called Rock Trolls, and them being turned to stone elementals makes sense with form of those elementals.

Make your own.

I'm being serious. When I was a young lad in junior high school, my friend and I made a card game called "Clique Wars." It was a mix of MtG and Pokemon, along with some unique stuff (variable win conditions). It had 4 cliques - goths, nerds, jocks, and poor people.
>>
Honestly, mtg in general is cancer and im suprised people even bother with it anymore apart from kitchen table shit. My younger brother recently got into the game playing standard and i cringe at the frustration and money hes spent getting into it. As an outsider, the whole game seems flawed from top to bottom. As a 'T'CG, it has the inherent flaw of always being statistically dictated by the strength of the cards which are limited. The game mechanics itself are shit via the randomness of the land resource system and ridiculous number of card abilities/mechanics and silly interactions between them. The rules themselves and game steps are clunky and illogical. Its analogous to a brick house being built with bricks in every direction; up, down, canted, vertical; just to patch existing problems created by prior janky gimmick abilities. In addition, the amount of shuffling utilized is stupid and adds significant match time for nothing and gross opportunities for cheating. The game has seemingly survived so long on its 'first mover' position in the TCG market and depth of artwork, but like most mega-corps in america today, it survives only because of its market share and barriers to entry. Overall its a shit game and i dont promote my younger brother to play it at all because its a waste of time & money, a frustrating experience (the game just isnt fun) and one looks like a complete neckbeard sjw cuck playing it.

hot take: moving forward, Arena will handle all the standard shit while mtgo will handle anything past standard, frees up the programmers trying to catch up programming the old stuff and lets them focus on the new stuff
