This was found by another friend, Earl. I only knew Chris because he recorded my play sessions with Teaman. He seemed a very kind and generous person. I will miss his gravelly voice on Skype.

True enough.  I just like their relative anonymity.
I haven't been here for awhile. I think when the big crash happened, I was sort of bummed out that all those old posts disappeared.

I don't listen to the old shows now that most of the old hosts have moved on. I just caught the tail-end of this, and I really enjoyed it.

Thanks, Dizzy. I've  never played CoC before so I'm sort of nervous. It reads like a very logical game system. I was just trying understand the insanity. Yes, I've told my players not to think like hack & slash players but we'll see what they think.

General Discussion / Call of Cthulhu 6th ed. Sanity Question
« on: December 05, 2017, 09:30:32 PM »
I'm just dipping my toes into CoC, and I had a question about Sanity. I'm a little confused about the relationship between Cthulhu Mythos and starting Sanity Points. When I lose Sanity Points do I start deducting from my starting sanity points or from 99? My guess is starting sanity but reading the rules has me confused. I know Cthulhu Mythos increases (which also decreases my Sanity), but my Sanity can decrease without my CM increasing depending on the cause of my sanity loss.

Just wanted to make sure I understood.

I'm playing 5e with some students at school. I don't have any of the books, but I'm wondering if I should. It's fun...I guess.

Just from what was said in the podcast I thought you hadn't.

One thing that's hard to get used to in 5E for some DMs is that you can play the monsters pretty smart without totally overwhelming the players.  If a particular character is effective, you can bet their opponents will notice their competency and react accordingly.  I've been playing 5E since the playtest and, while there are some powerful combos, they tend to be one-dimensional and relatively easy to deal with once you get the hang of it.

A clever DM could always exploit a character's weakness. You have a high-level cleric? Oops, that vampire has a ring of turning protection.  ;)

I don't who they are, but they look cool. Great find, SK!

I find that now I've sort of settled on "my" game (BFRPG, B/X, AD&D), I'm not that crazy about collecting stuff. I've got more than enough rules and supplements (more than I can play). When I've found older books in shops, I've often put them back on the shelf (even if they were a bargain). I hope some young person finds this treasure and it sparks a whole new passion in RPGs.

I thought Syrinscape was pretty cool. Lots of variety on the soundboard (hits, misses, spells, oohs and aahs, etc.). I would love to play with a soundboard and background music, but I'm not sure too many players are into that.

I guess that's all true. I just wonder if I can get over that the author was a lying, creepy pedophile.
