    PnP News Bot started a thread [Kobold Quarterly] Treasure Tables: Priceless Artifacts in News
    Originally posted on 01-30-2015 02:01 AM at koboldquarterly.com Priceless is really just another word for extraordinarily valuable. If someone ever tries to tell you that money is no object, use the following table to add a little variety to your loot or let it serve as inspiration for a story...

    the conflict resolution mechanic? well, it is a tertiary mechanic in order to provide a method of resolving deadlocks and ties to the primary method, noetic combat. i have been recently contemplating making it a quaternary mechanic so as to provide a greater focus on the purposed intent of the...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...
