Our Dwarf Fighter typically slides 2 - 3 crits each fight, owning his own puck probably will not change the slide enough to make a difference.


Just owning a puck could be an advantage itself. It would allow players to practice. Again not something I care about because your play does not affect mine, but I do think it is a valid argument. Can priest buy a set of beads and Wizards the plane board if they want one?


Since those are posted online you can study them. Having at slider is like saying owning baseball bat gives you and advantage in a base ball game. Nope it does not. Do not think owning a slider is a valid argument... since people make them already and use them...


Where are the skill tests posted online? I had thought they weren't posted anywhere. But I haven't really looked for them, either. I do think that owning a slider could be an issue, because you would be practicing with the exact same slider you'd be using in the Dungeon. If you make your own slider and practice with it, that might or might not closely simulate the ones in the Dungeon.

The skill tests shouldn't be posted online, unless someone took pictures of them, which isn't supposed to be allowed, and then posted them later.

Everything is online, if you look hard enough, because people don't follow the "no cameras" rule. Depends on your search-fu and determination.

I found Bard and Wizard tests after a few minutes. I'm sure the others are out there too.

Sure you can practice with the same slider. As stated the board would be different each time. It is like a baseball bat, you can practice all the time, but that changes when you have a live person throwing a ball. Hence the board... now if they could practice with the slider on each board in TD then yes you are right would be an issue. Since they are not ... not an issue.

As for the skill test they are online... just search.

Since they aren't supposed to be online, I'm not going to search for them, but will act as if they weren't online.

We are now moving into a world where some of us will be sliding at three different conventions per year.

Perhaps more opportunities will be coming in the future.

If at some point we are sliding every 3 to 4 months, there won't be much lack of practice nor will there be much rust to scrape off at the start of the next con.

Right because that is why battling practice has real pitchers throwing their hardest at batters just like in a real game....ohhh wait it isn't. Practice is good even if it is not the real thing. Practice sliding is an advantage. You can practice in varying boards. Is it the real thing no. Does it matter to me? No. It MAY matter to Jeff. Let's not pretend that practice will not help. Why would anyone practice if it didn't?

Here's what I don't get:

So what if people practice at home with homemade or bought or stolen sliders and start sliding 20s during the Cons!?m. Seriously...

How does this really matter!? TD does not have a database system for most 20s/most hits-misses/most damage (which would be my Dwarf with 124 in one hit - B) ). We do know there are certain DMs out there that get off on getting TPKs no matter what, but this should in no way bear upon personal sliders.

I don't think established teams would care if monsters go down hard within 1-2 rounds. I'm thinking practicing at home with personal sliders would only effect PUGs.

I have the plane board stuck in my head for another month at least.

The Druid test is just leaves. Mostly (if not all) North American types. Just go study some leaves.
