    Default Move processing of Protection from Energy/Elements to last

    Protection from Energy effects process first currently when it comes to taking elemental damage.

    An example of this is to run through the purple worm stomach in Belly with 40+ acid resist. Your Acid protection will quickly deplete even though once depleted, your acid resistance will completely mitigate the acid damage.

    If protection from elements was processed after resistance and absorption, then it would be a lot more useful of an effect. It would harmonize with resistance and absorption and be bonus hitpoints against that specific element.


    For a bonus on top of that, make Stoneskin more useful for characters that have some other form of DR. If you have DR 1/- and Stoneskin, the Stoneskin still depletes 10 a hit instead of having the 1 blocked by regular DR and 9 blocked by 10/adamantine.

    "Protection from..." spells are very disappointing the way things work now.

    I can agree to this. Protection from Elements is a waste of sp or buying a wand or whatever, imo, because its the first to go when getting hit by element damage. in 1 hit it can be depleted. if it was to be calculated as last against element damage it would become a very useful protection spell.
    Gary Gygax quotes

    The essence of a role-playing game is that it is a group, cooperative experience.

    There is no winning or losing, but rather the value is in the experience of imagining yourself as a character in whatever genre you are involved in, whether its a fantasy game, the Wild West, secret agents or whatever else. You get to sort of vicariously experience those things.

    Role-playing isn't storytelling. If the dungeon master is directing it, its not a game.

    When AI approximates Machine Intelligence, than many online and computer run RPGs will move toward actual RPG activity. Nonetheless, that will not replace the experience of "being there" anymore than seeing a theatrical motion picture can replace the stage play.

    The secret we should never let the game masters know is that they don't need any rules.
