    Confirmatio will begin three days after the end of Propositio. Send a message if there's anything you want to let me know about what your characters have been up to during that interval.

    HTML5 is still not working for people doing Android. Something about 906 and it says connecting but then it just resets. Both Lazarus and jb105 have reported this as having NOT been fixed after Faracaster was in the other day and fixed the majority of HTML5.

    I was answering a letter from Seadogstyle tonight and it brought home the fact that I've been swinging back forth between starting Confirmatio three days after the end of Propositio and starting it three weeks after the end. Three days is just enough time to have Fell's funeral. In three weeks,...

    I'm doing much better, but I still can't handle an extended period like a gaming session this weekend. Unfortunately, I will have to cancel Sunday's game. I should be fine after that.

    Of course anyone can use my hack job of an award for their use! That was partly why I posted it (but also so there was an official award posted for PPGCon). I am a hack at Photoshop though, so I'm sure someone else can make a NICE looking one - I just edited an image I found on the net. I was...

    No, while there may be some entirely new frameworks or additions in some of the Supers supplements available, if you're more or less running modified vanilla core Savage Worlds Deluxe rules for supers, you'd have to create experienced characters, probably beyond Seasoned and maybe even Veteran,...

    Short answer is, with a Novice level PC and the standard rules, you can't. Even if you really loaded up on the Hinderances, you couldn't start with more than three Powers. I'm not a Supers guy, so I don't have any of the Supers settings books, I would imagine there are additional rules in those...

    Depending on which version of Savage Worlds you have, the explanation of either starts on P.80 of Explorer's or P. 102 of Deluxe. The short answer is, when you choose the Arcane Background: Super Powers, you immediately gain one Power of your choice and you get 20 Power Points to use that skill....

    Farcaster, many of us, when we go to the bookmark for PPG, get a "the site has moved" page, that tells you to flush your DNS. I, like others, could NOT even get the site to load at all without flushing our DNS *AND* closing and restarting our browser. I think a lot of people are still sitting there...

    Due to player scheduling issues in September, I may either delay or replace the Feng Shui game. I'll be taking input for a while about whether there is any interest in Saturday gaming during autumn.

I'm big on city adventures and intrigue and plans withing plans, but not exclusively. Not interested in anything zombie-centric or 'men in ships' Sci-Fi. Currently in online Pathfinder games: (Human Ranger/Fighter),(Human Druid/Fighter), (Human Sorcerer/Inquisitor/Fighter), (Human Magus/Rogue - Investigator). Starting to explore other systems. In a Shady Gulch/Coyote trail game (Lone Bountyhunter of the Apocalypse ) and Atomic Highway (Bartertowner Greaser with a proud NASCAR history). Would like to try The Chronicles of Future Earth (BRP).
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.
