  1. Stranger in A Strange Land.

    by , 12-26-2009 at 03:35 AM (Stranger in A Strange Land.)
    Hi!

    I guess this first entry should be my introduction so here it goes:

    My name is Marcos, I live in São Paulo, Brasil. Lived here all my life.
    English is my second language, I practice it every chance I get because I really enjoy it.

    I first got into RPG's back in highschool when my cousins and I used to play the 3rd Ed. D&D.I have been away from the hobby for quite some time now and I really miss it.

    Not sure what to expect ...

  2. Star Wars Saga Edition Books

    by , 12-25-2009 at 02:57 AM (Random musings of an insane writer)
    You know, it's interesting. I got the Saga Edition Core Rulebook on order and was looking at Starships of the Galaxy and Knights of the Old Republic and they're sold out everywhere. Wherever I look and find them new(Amazon, etc)They are over 80 dollars. Vultures? Now, perhaps I can find them in-store, but still, I like to shop online and its just annoying when 'rare' items such as these(They have no right being this hard to get)start costing so much.

    Blah. Screw im' anyways. Just gonna ...

  3. Tempting FATE: Advancement

    There's one aspect of hacking up Spirit of the Century that was neglected in the previous posts: character advancement. That is, characters change in response to their experiences. Usually by getting mechanically better at what they do. Most games that I've seen build on this base model, either with levels or build points. Spirit of the Century, as written, is not one of these games.

    By design, characters have already "made it" as pulp adventurers and heroes, so there's nowhere ...
  4. A PC's life is finite.

    Saying its unfair to give the PC's an equal chance to die as the NPC's is just silly. The PC's at least get to choose their battles most of the time. NPC's and monsters are an expendable, renewable resource. They always die off faster then the PC's. If they didn't it would be a very short game and I would be a very lousy Dungeon Master.

    If a PC gets thrown into an arena and forced to fight a veteran gladiator should they not be scared? Is it wrong to assume that gladiator is a survivor ...

  5. English for RPGs – Part 14

    I was reading a description of a place where it was stated that the region was “hundreds of square miles on every side.” The square mile is a unit of area. That's the surface covered by the rectangle. The sides are miles long (miles being a unit of distance or length).

    The plural of manservant is menservants.

    I'm not quite sure about this one. “Different than” feels wrong to me, I would use “different from” instead. “Than” is used to make comparisons, but merely marking ...
