    I will address these questions and experiments using inline blue text, not to be confused with Blue Truth. In some of the answers I have provided, I allowed for certain assumptions to be made. I want to clarify this further and say that, on the balance, I am not willing to make assumptions...

    tesral started a thread [Campaigns / Adventures] Twelve Worlds Setting in Campaign Resources
    The Twelve Worlds Setting It kind of grabbed my brain, moved in, and set up shop. None of this existed two weeks ago, ships, logos, descriptions, none of it. In short an outline for a space fantasy game. Still plenty to do to make a real setting out of it.

    Role playing isa game, a game is a conflict. Ergo you cannot write conflict out of role playing games. If you don't have it you are writing poetry. Stories required conflict too. Now that said conflict can be resolved various ways. Combat isn't always the best. Yes, you can design and play...

    Tools are as useful as you make them. Too much reliance on a given tool can flavor things and not always well. I'nm all in favor of anytyhing that make the mexchanice of the game run more smoothlyand not in favor it if gets i n the way. If index cards speed things up for you, do it. If a...

    The Ancient Greek aphorism "know thyself" Is I think one of the wisest ever. Once you have reached that you have a handle on everything. Congratulations on reaching the epiphany of knowing thy gaming self. Sadly it is the journey that no one can make for you. Now you can make progress...

    I would be concerned if it was best always wins circumstance. While yes it might for the way to bet the race is not always to the swift. If it is then why have a contest?

    I believe Umi mentioned that he has some offline backups. I'm not sure how he got those. Either way there are vBulletin to phpBB crawlers that can be utilized to download a forum or post. I agree it would be a lot of manual work, which I don't think is currently warranted. However, I'm not sure...

    Malk0lm replied to a thread Worm Delve in The Unquiet Lands
    Nox tests the oil a bit with a few cantrips. Nothing too interesting happens. While waiting for Rogur and Derim to explore a bit he combines the vinegary wine and oil together and tries to light it aflame. Despite some misgivings about where the eastern corridor might lead, the party elects to...

    Because Nox is a pyro he mixes a bit of the oil and rancid wine together and lights it on fire to see what happens. After Derim and Rogur grab his attention to look at the trap he tries to define what is going on: Arcane knowledge check on the trap

    I've no familiarity with phpBB admin; how does one use a separate instance as a backup, if one lacks admin rights to the original? Seems like there would be a lot of manual work to download & import, or double-post.

    Alright, Nox should do some Acraning. If that brings us nowhere, Derim will start testing the trap: 1) length of a javelin from the trap pass the shaft over the stone; retract fast in order not to get it destroyed. 2) come closer and try it the with more of shaft. 3) when Derim runs out of...

    This is the sixty-fourth main post for Worm Delve. Players' posts in either thread are due by 11 pm, Saturday, January 31st. The next main post will appear by 11 am, Monday, February 2nd. I'm also a bit fuzzy, but for the sake of consistency, I think we need to take the order of the map updates...

    Greetings all, I thought I would share that I started a small instance of phpBB for everyone to use as a backup if they choose. It seems that the continuing uncertainty of the policies that govern PnPG as well as software stability problems make this an appropriate measure. It is located here:...

    That's a good way of looking at it, and not one I had considered before. Thanks for laying out your thoughts on this. Either before or after he explores the eastern passage (I'm a bit fuzzy on the order of operations here) Rogur will make a Thievery check to see if he can detect a triggering...

    Agree on Str/Dex, but you could mitigate it by just making Skill checks (Dex+Str)/2 or something. I somewhat disagree on Int/Wis. While people usually are on a spectrum, extremes here are certainly there. Thank god for the high-intelligence-low-wisdom chicks; they are so easy to bed. And thank ...

    I've only read D&D 5 Basic, but really it's not far off from Red Box if you ignore some of the tedious prose. No feats in Basic; they're optional in the PHB, I hear. Skills are still there, but only Untrained (raw stat bonus only) or Trained (stat + level-based Proficiency Bonus). "Backgrounds"...

    Lately I've found myself fascinated by minimalist D&D rules like "Searchers of the Unknown" and its worthy successor "1974 Style". I also like the d20-only philosophy of True20 and Numenera's Only Players Roll principle. All three have collided in my brain to create the following incomplete...
