General Discussion / Re: Nostalgia Vomit
« on: November 05, 2018, 10:49:08 AM »
Just wanted to let folks know that Jay (formerly of The Delvers podcast) has created another pod called Nostalgia Vomit. Jay is doing his magic with recording his play of game books (like Fighting Fantasy). If you liked The Delvers, I think you'll enjoy his new creation: http://www.nostalgiavomit.com
Wait, is this burned f/x?

Also, I can't find either a download button or rss feed. Pity, I hate listening to podcasts on my computer or kindle. :P

Save For Half episode # 13: "Call of Cthulhu by Chaosium"

Happy Halloween, Halfsies! The Halflings are back to celebrate the holiday with the granddaddy of all horror RPGS, Call of Cthulhu! We open the first edition box and look over the rules, the extras, and most importantly of all the insanities? Death, carnage, madness and flying head butts await you dear listener—in the Internet's greatest podcast brought to you by a guy from Wyoming and a couple of weirdos from Denton (the Home of Happiness!)

This podcast was brought to you by the number 2 and the letters IA!

Indeed, from the moment we start the hero and heroine are battling traps, tricks, and clockwork armours to escape the trap of Prof. Moriarty!

Alas Sgtslag, I wish I was wrong. Wen DF started in 2002 to about 2005 or so it was a great place. It got worse with the 1E TFanatics so much that I found it stifling. I still visit the Classic D&D forum over there, but avoid most of the others to get away from that sort of rigid doctrine. BITD, we didn't play BTB in any shade or manner....so I refuse to see why I have to do it differently today. :)

LOL... I know its kinda repetitive, but years of being on dragonsfoot and hearing "XYZ says its this way so you MUST ONLY play it that way..." has scarred me forever. I know most Genteel Magistrates know its a given, but like I reiterated on Game School 206 I really believe its your game. I just wrote some ideas down that I like... :D

"Temporal" was an attempt to use as much Victorian verbage without going overboard and boring everyone to death. For instance, I'd toyed with having Martial Arts as "Baritsu", but finally decided clarity was better than obscure yet faithful terms. In fact, to be truly accurate it should be "Temporal" and "Spiritual" but I went with "Mystical" instead to avoid the issues loaded with the Spiritual concepts.

I like the idea of the Leprechaun, so long as you don't make it like those awful 80s-90s movies!

Damn shame...I never played Runequest, but I played a lot of Call of Cthulhu back in the day and always wanted to chat and/or game with him.

Here's hoping he's dicing with Gary and the others in that great gaming room in the sky...!

Hey all,

This week’s Clockwork Monday is a little different, as homage to the season. And what’s more Halloween than a skull-based villain? Nothing!

Crap... I only chatted with him here, and never had the honor of gaming with him.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. :(

Save For Half Sideshow # 12 1/2: "NTXRPG Con wrapup...with Satan!"

Halflings are here again to half the halflings available only to the other "half"! Which means a chat with Satan himself! Well, it’s Mike "BadMike" Badolato; co-owner, marketing hub, and general whipping boy for the North Texas RPG Convention.

We know it’s late....but we brought you Satan to make up for the delay! That’s gotta count for something.

Victorious / Re: Temporal Damage = Kinetic Damage?
« on: October 02, 2018, 11:24:05 AM »
Some superpowers, such as Armor and Etherealness, refer to temporal damage, while others, such as blast references kinetic damage. Am I right in thinking that temporal and kinetic are synonymous both basically meaning physical damage, as opposed to energy (heat, electricity, etc) damage or other non-physical damage?

Ok, assume the usual "This is not official, its just what I do in my home game, etc." bit!

As for Temporal and Kinetic... Temporal refers to all sorts of damage in the physical world. Bullets, burning, blades, cold, etc.; that's Temporal damage. Kinetic is a type of Temporal damage but isn't the whole shebang. Thus someone with Absorption Kinetic can't simply absorb all Temporal damage; just Kinetic types. If s/he wants to absorb all Temporal damage they can, but it costs a lot more in power ranks.


One of my players was unhappy when I told her that her Ethereal form was still vulnerable to heat damage.

Again this is just IMO and isn't "official"....but I would've sided with your player regarding the heat damage. IMC, Etherialness avoids all Temporal damage and only Mystic (Magick-Psychic-etc.) would do damage; as noted by the poster above.

Part of Victorious's acclimation with the Siege Engine is to take such semi-AD&D rules into account. However, since in Victorious most SuperMankind are Superhantural, they count as magic weapons and can hit creatures like demons that normally can only be hit by magic weapons. Etherial though, that's incorporeal and thus special powers are needed to hit them.

In your chronicle, you could make a ruling that Elemental forces (Fire, Water, electricity-wind) can damage Etherial beings; but I'd suggest they take only half damage. At least get a Save for Half<TM)! :lol:

BTW, did your Tuesday game get going? I passed word around as best I could. I'd have joined myself, but I have to do office hours Tuesday nights for my classes. !@#$ students!

HTH,

Save For Half episode # 12: "Boot Hill by TSR"

Saddle up y'all, and go for yer guns! The Halflings rustle up a passle of Western catch-phrases for this episode of the podcast! We're covering Boot Hill (1st and 2nd editions) and talk about weapons, maps, guns and a surprising lack of "Men with No Name"(TM)

No outlaws were harmed in the making of this podcast, except when Liz shot Mike....but she didn't shoot the deputy!
