Re: FFG's Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game Reprint

It has only been very, very recently that I've looked back over my WEG book and realized that there really aren't any exceptions-based rules in character builds. You've got your core abilities and skill dice, but nothing like feats or many special abilities to speak of. There's a temptation on my p...

Re: Pathfinder 2E Playtest

We showed up for two sessions, the GM was... well let us say not helpful in character creation. We weren't looking for anything big here, just some dungeon crawl stuff right? We created our characters, came back for session two and it was... Just. Bad. Not the system, there is some cool if superfluo...

the Rule of Awesome won out over pettifogging book rules.

Every. Damn. Time.
I wish more DMs did that.

Re: Bonus Episode 80 - Nostalgia

... we weren't assaulted with Buck Rogers marketing when we were kids, this is my theory. IF Buck Rogers got to be very popular again then it would have, there is no marketing because there is no market outside of niche and I think niche people tend to seek a thing out without marketing prompts. Wh...

Re: Episode 498 - player response to GM error

As an aside, still slightly on topic, as a player I have never used Web as the typical "Spider-Man webbing the bad guys" kind of thing. I have used to to patch holes in a pinch, create a covering or even hide. Small gaming story: in a Ravenloft game monsters had broken in through a wall, w...

Re: Game-Killing Delays

Knowing Indy I know that there are a lot of gaming options. Knowing Indy I know that having a group is also really hard to do. It sucks when people flake out for gaming. It extra sucks when they are legitimate reasons ibecause, what do you do? That said, this is what you do for fun and if you aren't...

Re: Pathfinder 2E Playtest

Tried a few sessions on PF 2 playtest, not the system but I think I broke a tooth on it, but the gamemaster. Just. Terrible. So we dropped out, life is too short for crappy games. On the flip side I have started a sort of "work group" D&D 5e game. Very excited about that. I see no reas...

Re: Pathfinder 2E Playtest

From what I understand, Resonance is not getting great feedback and is looking like it will be modified. I don't love it as is. Also, speaking of quicker combats, magic weapons and critical hits. Wow. A +1 magic weapon does not simply confer at +1 bonus to attack and damage. It confers a +1 bonus t...

Any game that doesn't exclusively use d6's need special dice. The price of those dice is pretty insignificant as a percentage of the total cost of many gaming collections.


I guess I am just enough (just?!) of a geek to think of polyhedral die as not being special die.

Re: Looking for a System

You have your answer... Folks, I am looking for a system that I will be using to introduce three players to RPGs they are familiar with stuff like Critical Roll and other RPG webcast stuff . I have 2 other players that have minimal experience. I am looking for a D&D-esque setting RPG that is ext...
