Community Creations & Kickstarters / Re: In the thick of things
« Last post by Pladohs Ghost on Today at 02:45:10 PM »
Just realized that the types of PCs I'm planning map well to the major rules sections in the game. Social interactions, travel, exploration, investigation, action, magic, and spying. There's a bit more variety to it than the classic set up. The challenge is to provide structure to play while retaining choice for the players.

Star Wars / Re: WEG Star Wars Rereleased by FFG

That's possible, I suppose, but honestly, there's a few auctions going pretty much all the time.  The only one that seems to be rare-ish/expensive is the 2nd edition revised version.  1e still seems to list at between $10-30, depending on the auction.

Save for Half Podcast / Re: A "pause" to reflect?

I like it the way it is. I mean, if it is too whatever for that listener remember they can pause the broadcast themselves with their podcast player.

First Edition AD&D / Re: AD&D Unclassified

Yes they can. If you are talking about magical weapons or items, have a monster that puts off a Dispel Magic bubble around itself. Something else you can do is have monster attacks that effect their attribute scores. In other words monsters can have any type of effect on your players that you want them to.

Save for Half Podcast / A "pause" to reflect?
« Last post by DMMike on November 16, 2017, 02:00:42 PM »
Hello all,

I've been informed recently by a fan that he finds the editing out of pauses in our show to be annoying. In his view, its too intense (paraphrased) and doesn't give the listener time to breathe or reflect.

My question is, do you agree or disagree about the lack of pauses in Save for half?

All thoughts appreciated,

DM (Good at talkingfastand notstopping) Mike

Other Games / "Kult" by Metropolis Limited
« Last post by Shiftkitty on November 14, 2017, 10:02:43 AM »
Has anyone ever played "Kult", by Metropolis Limited? I found an old copy and wondered what it was like. It looks sufficiently creepy, but is it more gonzo supernatural or subtle supernatural? I was thinking of starting up a game based on the movie "Se7en" with some tweaks.

Campaign Worlds / Re: What Makes Your World Yours?
« Last post by Jack Daniel on November 13, 2017, 01:42:06 PM »
I don't see it as thread necromancy. I've noticed lots of the posts center on the podcasts and general discussion forums. It takes me awhile to get back to posts because my work schedule is all over the place and I'm usually dead tired when I get home.

I like your swashbuckling elves!

Me too. :D 

When I created my last setting, I wanted to get away from the snooty elves, Scottish dwarves, and homebody halflings we've all played with for decades.  It just seemed like a breath of fresh air to make puckish elves, backstabbing goblins, and forest-ninja dwarfs take their place.
