    Here's a review of the terrain features: Blue Outlines - thin tree trunks are difficult terrain and provide cover from ranged attacks to anyone in the square. Green Outlines - tall grass doesn't impede movement but provides concealment from ranged attacks to anyone lying prone in the...

    I'm not really looking for a reward either. I feel that being a GM is my way of supporting the forum and returning the favor for the countless hours of enjoyment I've already gotten from the site.

    At the moment I'm running one game for August and may run one in September; I find it hard to plan too far ahead. But I wanted to say I'll waive any "GM reward" costs for my part you might have considered, if it helps make better rewards for a smaller pool of GMs. I'll just try to run a game or two...

    After a bit of investigation, I think the reason that Pradize's damage in the recent post was incorrectly calculated is because there is a space after the last number in the ROLL tag, while there is no trailing space in the older, otherwise identical, post. The error message is that the split()...

    Please consider adding the following. Spoiler Tags in forum posts. Helpful for concealing big rolls in PBP games and large images in other thread types or for the standard "spoiler stuff" that people want to keep out of direct eye-sight just in case. For example, threads about Game of Thrones. ...

    We have the ability to put up files for download. And yeah, user votes and polls can be used. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out. I assumed the only reason we weren't already talking about / working on one is because of the P&PG con coming up taking a lot of focus.

    Sorry for not replying earlier. Yes, the escalation bonus applies across the board for ease of administration, so I'll add on a +1 to Yrisz's attack roll. I also forgot to repeat the character links, so here they are: Konstansz (base +9 to hit and +7 damage with primary attacks)...

    I think we've reached a consensus for where to go for now, then. I will keep the requirement that players be familiar with the Player's Handbook, but players can now utilized options from the entire set of rules that are allowed for this campaign. As far as treasure goes, I don't care if it's a...

    This version of the map has some of the non-clear terrain marked. Everything in and near the expected combat area is marked, but the peripheries of the map generally aren't. Blue Outlines - thin tree trunks are difficult terrain and provide cover from ranged attacks to anyone in the square. ...

    I have very little time to write this, so I'll respond in full later. Very briefly, you can spend a minor action on a Perception check to note any differences, if they exist, between your assailants. There are terrain effects, and I'll describe them in full later tonight or early this morning.

About Me
Biography:
I'm a late-40's Canuck with probably waaay too much time on his hands :). In year 2 of the re-union tour via after a 25 year hiatus from RL RPGing (due to a really crappy locale for gamer density/resources). I'm not mobile outside of walking distance so I'm limited to online play at this time. I've got Mirc, Skype, Maptool, OpenRPG and am willing to DL other software as needed. There are a bunch of us who play in various groups. Always looking for more. If you want references try looking the following folks up on PnPG games: Chrine, Apostate 2012, Layne, trialbyfireent, Gunhaven. All of these folks have sat at the same table as me for quite a length of time and know me best. Feel free to talk to any of them.
