    "Yes, you're skillful and brave. You and the fire marshall over there should get together and swap recipes." I really did find that rather funny. Yrisz has a Passive Perception of 21, so she can help too, I'll be it from the parties center. I wonder how far we should get ahead of Umi as we...

    Ithelryn replied to a thread Worm Delve in The Unquiet Lands
    Sniggering at Rogur's "fire marshall" quip and the look of indignation on Noxias's fey face, Yrisz eases back from Pradize's door to better allow those with the knowledge of the perils of such thing examine it without her in their way. She's rewarded for her prudence when Derim gets threateningly...

    Are we going to be checking for traps or wards (or lingering curses) before descending? I only ask because Yrisz isn't good at any of those things ;-)

    Yrisz smiles in fatigued delight as Paradise preforms her seeming magic with the silver key. However, as the young reaper reiterates her fee for her current services Yrisz begins to look a bit perplexed, though she allows Derim to have his with Paradise before speaking. "Ms. Pradize, does this...

    Ithelryn replied to a thread Worm Delve in The Unquiet Lands
    The usually affable Yrisz just holds her ground, slack mouthed while she puzzles the utter dichotomy of the sophisticated voice and mannerisms of Derim that stand so starkly against his feral appearance and almost cavalier handling of what was most obviously a grizzly battle of attrition. She...

    Hey, it works for Martians. ;D (obscure sci-fi reference) Also reminds me of the old school grognard munchkins who would gently heat their old dice in a frying pan, because the process used would embed air-bubbles inside of the plastic, and heating them slightly would allow the bubbles to...

    i recall rolemaster has 20 armor types, and what amounts to an efficiency rating versus each type of damage possible in the game. it was a nice degree of granularity, but not everyone likes 'chartmaster', especially the rules-lire crowd.

    Yrisz freezes for fright and her debilitating near blindness, hoping that the other's can resolve this new 'who' without her bringing out trusty everburning torch which will most certainly scream the party presence to the rival fortress looters.

    Hey FC. What's going on?

    Hi Farcaster, just wanted to say this is a very well established site and I'm very impressed. I also thank you because this site will help me find players in my area!

    Farcaster, please forgive me for posting this here, but I've tried PMing you several times recently and was never answered any of them, so maybe my account won't send PM's?

    I'm sorry if I've annoyed you in any way, I know I've screwed up and such, but I hope you understand I've genuinely tried to be good, it was never my intention to cause any harm.

    I've patiently waited out my infraction time, but when I tried to join the chat (for a game a friend of mine scheduled, Juno-Ome to be specific) it says I'm still banned.

    I agree PM's would be a better place to discuss this, so please PM me a response. Again, I'm sorry, but I have no where else to turn.

The Gatekeeper Campaign Log

by Farcaster on 10-14-2011 at 07:14 PM
I kicked off a new campaign about a year and a half ago called "The Gatekeeper," and I have had the extremely good fortune of having a published WotC designer and author at the table with us, Mr. Erik Scott de Bie. Erik, I have come to find out, is a tenacious writer. In the first few weeks of our game, he actually sent me more post game followup than all my players combined have sent me in the following year.

So, I asked him if he'd focus that insatiable pen of his towards

The Year of Blue Fire: Gearing Up

by Farcaster on 12-13-2010 at 02:52 PM
So, our first game for the Year of Blue Fire campaign is coming up this Friday. Iíve got the basic concept together for the first adventure, but I still need to sit down and stat out potential encounters and spend some time jotting down key locations and information. I usually work well under pressure and it is a first level game, so Iím not too worried about it.

Iíve decided to try out logging the campaign on Obsidian Portal. I created a campaign there last night. So far, Iíve only

The Year of Blue Fire - Campaign Background

by Farcaster on 11-22-2010 at 04:14 PM
I am starting up another campaign soon. I may be a little crazy for trying to run two games simulateously and "assist-DM" in a third, but I just couldn't resist when my buddy asked me to run a game for a group he was putting together.

Unlike most games I have run in the past, I'm not coming to the table with a campaign idea already in hand. Instead, I am working with the players to create their backgrounds and then I am going to build the campaign organically from their

Have you checked out d20Pro?

by Farcaster on 04-22-2010 at 03:58 PM
d20pro pushed out an update today. Version 2.1 is out of beta and available for download.

You know, I recently ran a 4th edition demo game using d20pro. It's actually a pretty sweet little app for running remote games, and even for using as a digital replacement for your battlemat at your regular face-to-face games as well. It was designed specifically for the d20 OGL ruleset and has a set of plugins to integrate nicely with Pathfinder. There are also patches for 4th edition, and

Why I'm Starting to Consider the iPad...

by Farcaster on 03-01-2010 at 11:00 AM
A few short weeks ago when the iPad was first announced, I was not among the throng of excited Apple groupies who had already made up their minds before Steve Jobs took one step onto the podium that I would be buying this device no matter what it did. I've never quite understood the mentality of if it has XYZ sticker, I simply must have it, and that extends to the iWhatever-the-Hell-They-Come-Up-with-Next. I was a late adopter to the iPod, simply because I never wanted to spend
