    Nice post, Mythus. I enjoyed reading this. I felt that I got more info and enjoyment out of the comment section tho. I will be the first to admit, almost everyone who finds a system they truly enjoy, becomes a fanboy for that particular system, at least to some extent. Which is why i tossed...

    Hi Umiushi, I am confirming for the 4-May Memories Remain game. Right now, I'm unable to confirm for the 18-May game, as I currently have a schedule conflict. It's possible it might clear up over the next few days, and if it does, I'll make a note here. But for now, assume I'll be absent. --T

    It turns out that Rogur and Varis both have a Stealth of 11. Rogur can lag the main party a few squares behind and to one side, so if there is any pursuit, he'd be able to spot them. We hope. And I've heard of the tactic you describe, Malk0lm, but I can't put a name to it just now.

    Noxias grows increasingly impatient, from his concealment he calls to his party, "She said 'flee into the woods', make haste before the field is theirs!"

    This sounds good. However I feel we should keep someone behind to follow us to keep an eye out for any followers. Who has the best stealth? Also, I know there is a term that describes the practices of keeping an ally far behind a party to keep an eye out for tails, but I can't think of it. Any...

    What do you want to see in a gaming advert to get your interest? Over the past three years, I have chatted in person about tabletop roleplaying gaming with strangers I've met at the university, at the local comics-n-games store, at the bookstore, once in a long line at a convenience store,...

    Another way to do this is almost a Matrix meets Shadow World meets Call of Cthulu scenario. Joe and Jane average _KNOW_ that magic and monsters and stuff is bullcrap, impossible, AND just the stuff of stories. Those few (Neo and crew) that have been unplugged start out with the knowledge that...

    I make my players roll LOTS of perception checks... just to keep them on their toes. If you don't, and then, from out of the blue, ask them to roll a check, they suddenly get mega-curious and it ruins any idea of surprise. By making them roll 40-50 a session, they then stay curious... or not... but...

    The websites are great, but my favorite reference is always the local gaming stores. Just ask the geek at the front counter about local groups that play and if there is a gaming bulletin board where the groups advertise for openings in their groups. MANY stores allow gaming IN the store - and...

    "The party prioritizes fleeing from the monastery, hopefully following Cresta. (This is my default assumption at this point.)" To me a little more priority towards following Cresta, but fleeing the monastery seems an overwhelming need at the moment, so let us try to make it an orderly retreat...

    I ran one campaign in which all the PCs were hired as defense crew for a seagoing ship on a quest something like the travels of the Argonauts with Jason, the various ships under Odysseus and under Sinbad the Sailor, and a touch of the Dawntreader from the Narnia books. Their conflicts included...

    I've run both - and can say from personal experience that "fate" is nothing more than railroading on a grand scale. I run a sand-box style campaign, and that means that while I may present wonderful adventure hooks, it's up to the characters to make their own decisions and "choose their own...

    Taken seriously, that statement excludes all fantasy, all horror, all SF, and all superhero campaigns, then, for in all of them we approach scientific principles and/or metaphysics differently than we approach them in real life. And if it wasn't meant seriously, why make it? (Unless it was an...

    Something like that, yes, except as a real roleplaying game (Tabletop Face-2-Face Pen-&-Paper RL) instead of as a surrogate substitute approximation of a roleplaying game (computer / console / arcade / other video / online / forum / chatroom -- all of which make great wargames and "round robins",...

    Unless there's a time limit or it's especially difficult, usually succeeding in something like that could be automatic. You don't make a programmer in Shadowrun roll his skill every time he does his job when he's at work, it's reserved for more stressful moments. Now if the walls were slick, the...

    1. Everybody has mana. Mana is used for the skills listed in the Class section. This tells you what your abilities are for each class and how much health they have, how much mana it costs to use an ability, etc. think of it as stamina! :) 2. I will add visuals, good idea! :) But, as described,...
