General Discussion / Re: Favorite Lines, Any Edition

It's been some years, but I do recall a Star Wars Saga Edition game I was playing with my kids wherein the then 13 or 14 year old son playing a B-1 battle droid had a memorable line.  It went something like this...

Gamemaster: (in reference to an alien the party just met)  Are you sure it is even intelligent and can understand you?
B1 Battle Droid:  (To the alien creature)  Are you sentient?
Alien: ...

I'm getting pretty much the same impression unfortunately.

Classic D&D / Re: The Force

I'd be tempted to make them class-based abilities similar to how the monk is defined in 1st edition AD&D with certain Force abilities unlocked at a certain level signifying the level of training the jedi-like character has attained.  Another thought along these lines would be to try and mesh the D6 Star Wars approach with D&D starting the force user character with access to Sense-related force powers then adding Control powers at 3rd level and finally Alter powers at 6th, for example.  Use Wisdom and/or Charisma checks to gauge the success/failure of each force use attempt, borrowing from Star Wars Saga Edition.

Another way to integrate force powers is through the use of D&D's skills rules, cf. Hollow World supplement and/or RC.  Each power is simply a skill the force user learns.  Apply the necessary related skill check for success/failure and/or magnitude of success or failure and voila! Force powers in classic D&D.

That seems to be the sentiment amongst many old schoolers it seems.  Thanks for sharing!

We’re going headhunting in theis episode! Join DMs Glen, Fulongamer, Brian, and Cory as the delve into a mixed bag of topics. After taking care of some emails (after which Cory has to make his departure), the fellas settle in for the main event. First they break an oft-unused spell Leomund’s Lamentable Belaborment, then they delve in the third part of their series for beginning players, then take it home with a list of their top 5 “normal” magical weapons.

I love you, gentlemen.  Talk of FULON's new firearm brought a smile to my face.  Can we get pictures, please?  Has he had a chance to put it to good use?

I must admit that the discussion on re-skinning monsters brought to mind a certain song written and performed by Jonathan Coulton.  He has a warning.  Try not to use too many monkeys.

T1 Village of Hommlet...classic 1st edition module.  Probably the only one I've run multiple times and in multiple game systems.  As noted by Blackstone, it's that good folks.  Go out and get it now!

Just want to write that I thought this show was very good.  I enjoyed the discussion on portraying the elf in D&D from the different perspectives as provided us from both cinema and popular literature.

I am loving the fact that we have a Tolkienite as a host!

Really? What part? We'll be in Tyler.

DM (Good at knowing regions but not much specifics) Mike

I live in Hunt county just south of Greenville.  Alas, since everything is indeed big in Texas, Tyler is still roughly an hour and a half away.  Still, if you happen to be in the area I'd love to have you over if you have a moment.
