  1. Week 14 - Captain, Oh my Captain.

    This episode of Encounters was a blast. First we were reunited with a player who previously had switched tables to aid with balancing. Second Barcan said is dramatic goodbye and was replaced with a warlock. Last we meet a brand new friend, a large goliath with a net. How we meet them is another one of those moments you can get when you put people in a room together a regular basis.

  5. FF HERO: extra skills, items, equipment, revamped equipment lists, and extra thoughts

    With skills, items, and equipment done, the character side of things are done. Next step is to figure out gold and XP scaling. But at least I can do character creation now.

    Also, with revamping equipment, I revamped the equipment lists


    Skills:
    Scavenge: extract items from destroyed creatures (INT)

    Traps: Dex based skill to disarm traps.

    Items:
    Cost of item will be based on active points.

    All items ...
