Re: Mundane Preference Poll (2019)

To me water is an ingredient. If I drink it at all it has to be very cold, perhaps not actually starting to form ice crystals, but very cold, and then I drink it slowly. For rehydration it's going to be cold tea or dilute juice. But water Iwant to be very cold. I'd eat snow if I could get real snow ...

Re: What boardgames are you playing?

I played Micropia yesterday. It's by Matagot Games, the same people who make Meeple Circus . In Micropolis, you are building ant tunnels (galleries) by placing tiles around a central starting ant hill. The hill tile, from which you start, has ten sides to place the wedge-shaped tiles on, and you sta...

Re: RP and leaving the party

We've had several cases when real life made people leave our group, and we always assume that since the game is happening in a big world, and the PCs have multiple connections and obligations in that world, there may be real believable reasons why a character suddenly has to leave. The warrior's gre...

Re: Grumbly Things Go Here

I get to go out to Manitoba next week. I love Manitoba, but I'm going there to get my mom, and hopefully my day, into a care home. I think she wants to go,but he doesn't, and she wants him to be with her. But their health and memory are bad, Mom's memory especially. And rural bush country is not a s...

Re: What is Really Going On and Other Resources

I always keep a few lists of place names and people names, for spur-of-the-moment NPCs and stops.

A list of gems and minerals and interesting (medicinal) plants found naturally in the region.

A few building or ruin blueprints.

Re: Kid-friendly RPG's?

Just to throw it out there as a shameless plug... The Trouble with Rose is almost all storytelling and counting. Just make a play set where you use pictures and colors instead of phrases for the six attributes. For that matter, you can also snag icons or use Zero Dice straight up as a story maker. ...

Re: So, how would you play a character with low wisdom?

That's a nice, and likely, combination of low-wisdom characters, the sort who would end up getting along in a group. And they're both plot movers in their own ways. Do keep telling us of their adventures!
