2022.01.24 04:29 Nelthario Should I re-re-balance these encounters?
First: Nikandreos, Cassandra, Maxima, Calypso, Jolech and Sylas, this ain't for you. Eyes off, my guys. Surprise and uncertainty makes for fun and emotional games.
Second, TL;DR: my players were breezing through encounters so I planned one very rough night with 2 deadly encounters and one chase, but now 2 of them are out of comission after the first battle. I'm unsure if this is (as it seems) the result of their choices or me being bad at making tough encounters. Should I nerf/remove the rest of the fights? Also, spoilers for Odyssey of the Dragonlords.
(Very?) Long version:
I'm a new DM, having done only one campaign (Lost Mines of Phandelver). My players are now in Odyssey of the Dragonlords, a campaign insbired by Greek mythology and epic heroism, and overall very easy combat-wise (at least from my impressions and most of the talk on Reddit and the community's very active Discord). My 6 players are optimizers, and had a starting feat. Some info on them at the end, if anyone wants to know.
For the first 2 chapters, they blazed through encounters (as expected). I gradually increased difficulty while keeping things fair. Then they got to a important point in the story and I decided to take off the kids gloves, but their decisions, coupled with bad rolls, let them almost dead at the first encounter of the night, and I don't know if I should nerf or remove the rest and let them have their hard-earned win.
To sum it up, they offered themselves as sacrifice instead of a princess, to be tied to a sacrificial rock on a river during 1 night (where they should be eaten by "river creatures"). One day before the sacrifice, they found out that said "creatures" were Basilisks, and followed them to their nest (an underwater cave followed by a regular cave). They thought the possibility of underwater fighting too dangerous, told jokes about luring them out (but didn't try), and decided to simply fight them the next night, chained to the rock and with suboptimal equipment (weaker weapons, limited spell components).
And they didn't fight very well. They mostly simply attacked while blinded (resulting in disadvantage for them and advantage for Basilisks), didn't use most of their best tools to help them do it (Bless, Charms of Heroism, shoves), and rolled low. Only a couple save spells were used. In the end, they killed 2 Basilisks while the last one fled, but one PC died and one was petrified.
Now I'm divided, because there is still one more deadly encounter for the night (significantly foreshadowed) and one possible combat (but mostly a chasing scene against Harpies). Dying here isn't a common TPK, since they (unknowingly) have at least 1 boon that allows them to come back from death, but it would have consequences story-wise.
On one side, they got to this possible tragedy because of their own choices (and both hubris and tragedies are insteresting themes in Greek mythos). On the other, I'm afraid this might simply be me being bad at planning encounters. While failure here sounds very interesting to me, I don't want a TPK if that's simply my fault. Does anyone have any advice?
Combat-relevant info on characters: (1) Oath of Conquest Paladin, Gem Dragonborn with Dragon Fear and 18 CHA; (2) Oath of Vengeance Paladin, Scourge Aasimar with some Warforged features, with Sentinel; (3) Way of the Astral Self Monk, Winged Tiefling with 18 DEX; (4) College of Lore Bard, Protector Aasimar with Shadow Touched and 18 CHA; (5) Odyssean Rogue (setting subclass), Fierna Tiefling with Mobile; (6) Circle of the Moon Druid, Half-Elf with Fey Touched and 18 WIS.

2022.01.24 04:29 AlexiaVNO How to enjoy losing?
So, I've been playing about 10 hours since release and definitely am not good enough at this game in any way, but I love Yugioh. So, I made a Dragonmaid deck because the art looks nice and made it to Silver 5. I'm definitely losing a lot, which I expected. Now all of that is fine, or at least it really should be. How do you push through losses? Every time I lose, I just get so pissed off and just turn off the game. Even if my opponent did only 1 single thing that disrupted something I tried, I just give up. Doesn't matter if it's Solo or Ranked. Is there some secret trick to make losing fun, instead of the worst feeling imaginable?

I don't have luck on dating apps and also joining clubs and groups hasn't worked. Where are other places where you can find women that get the chance to know you, whether it leads to a relationship or not?

I have enrolled in ESPP with a percentage of my paycheck going into an E*Trade account with a six month investing date.
During the end of each month or paycheck can I login to E*Trade and see my value of totally stocks or can I only do so at the end of the six months when it's ready to be cashed out?

2022.01.24 04:29 tikilikitorch Everytime. Everytime I catch feelings for a girl something happens and I'm left dangling. This is why I just bounce around and never try to settle.
This girl that one of my closest friends linked up with just a got boyfriend that she spent her birthday with. We were supposed to go out for her birthday. For 7 weeks we spent hours texting and calling and I thought we had a connection so I caught feelings. Idiot.
Since I was so excited about her I tried asking her out but she left me on read. I didn't think much about it, I'm no insecure 13 year old. Later on after a long text conversation I try again. Left on read. Well no matter, she's left me on read on accident a few times before. Then I try a third time and she says she's busy. I BELIEVE her. She works 48 hours and is a full time college student. Idiot.
She had invited me to go out with her and some of her friends on her birthday over a month in advance. I thought I had a shot at finally getting a girlfriend for the first time in my 22 year old life. That maybe my heart shouldn't be so cynical and callous that I just bounce from one meaningless fling to another. No. I'm an idiot. I had it right the first time. Idiot.
Last week I tried calling her because I started thinking about her. It went to voice-mail. She calls back an hour later, my heart starts racing, I get excited. When I pick up she says "who's this?" I dunno, the guy one of your oldest friends linked you up with? The guy you spent hours talking on the phone just a few days ago? She deleted my number. Idiot.
Her birthday rolls around and I'm a little hurt but I don't think much of it. We never met in person just texting, phone calls, and FaceTime. I shouldn't expect anything from her. So I go drinking with my buddies. Next day, today, I'm looking thru stories and I accidentally get to her's since I'm tapping fast. It's a picture of her and a dude that says "birthday dinner w/ my bebe. Thank you baby" She got a boyfriend. Idiot...
I made it clear that I wanted a relationship from the beginning and she did too. I just didn't know that she was looking at someone else. I had fully believed that I was going to have my first girlfriend. That all the heartbreak, all the times I was used, left behind, and crushed all led to me finding a kindred spirit that would make it all worth it. No man, I had it right before. Women are just going to hurt me so I might as well just have casual fun instead of exposing myself over and over while expecting a different outcome. The definition of insanity. Idiot...
I know it was just 7 weeks but I really felt some type of way. I always end up disappointed whenever I get excited about someone. Idiot...
