    Hand does touch the stone square, but Derim's feet are outside. Derim retreats the moment anything deadly starts to happen. What of the bleed on the surrounding squares? Does the bleached area seem very tightly delimited, or is there some spill-over? In other words, does it seem like there is a...

    Something tells me it's a problem. Phone pile. All the phones in the middle of the table. First person to reach for one before the game is called pays for the pizza.

    Eastern culture is pretty blood soaked too. Actions have consequences. I have always played that way. If you want a low/no combat game you neeed to offer appropriate conflicts. 40 Orcs with swords are not the deal. You also need to offer your players a satsifying means for resolving...

    The light cantrip is such an elementary thing for Nox that he will only ever express minor annoyance at being asked to cast it (and probably only to Rogur). Further, casting it requires a flippant "buzz off" motion, so it makes it all the more perfect. So, if possible, I would ask Umi to go...

    Agreed - the GM must be the proponent of non-combat options. And I think combat should have some negative outcomes too, like killing something means you can't gain information or you garner bad reputation. (Reputation rules, then?) But Western culture is against us: video games, movies, and...

    Okay, how about an app that sets off an alarm anytime a social media app runs? The GM hears this, and knows to dock XP - or add an extra damage point or two to the next attack. :mad:

    Yeah, my impression of Nox has always been: I had actually started our movement down the northern corridor, but since it was concurrent with a stated desire to also explore the eastern passage, I didn't go too much further with it. It sounds like we're all here with the trap just now,...

    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 is a 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'm all in favor of anything that make the mechanics of the game run more smoothly and not in favor it if gets i n the way. If index cards speed things up for you, do it. If a spell...
