    To make things simpler, I would use the same yard-stick for all actions. The way you have your ranged attacks and tasks right now are two systems - just stick to one: touch = simple short range = moderate medium range = moderate long range = complex Out of range = ridiculous (why have this if...

    I like the looks on my players' faces when they go looking for "Tomorrowland", and it just can't be found... until someone starts researching and discovers that there is a local place called "Kentucky" that, in the language of the Old Ones (TM), translates as "Land of Tomorrow". (it really does...

    I hate to say it. I don't have one. I never developed a firm affinity for any super type. Several have points, none prevail.

    I've heard the topographical map trick. You cna reverse that as well and drop the waterlines. Naming conventions are always good to have. It givce an area flavor. Incidentally in England you can tell the areas that use to be the Danelaw by the town names.

    And for mapping hints: get some topographical maps from the interweb and print them out - go to a place like Office Depot or similar to get big, poster sized ones (should cost less than $5 for one good black and white poster). Then choose an elevation marker - and starting at the existing...

    http://translate.google.com is the bestestest tool out there for exactly the reasons Tesral listed - you type in ONE word (or a series) and you can get about 30 different foreign words for it/them. And what's REALLY cool is the little speaker icon underneath the translated words. Click on it and...

    No real single method. Most of my city names are locational. Woodmanor, Seahaven Delta and so forth,. The world Thindacarulle is just Greyhawke in Elven. Google translate is your friend for exotic sounding names that are not. For example the mundane sounding town of Hillside becomes...

    clintsylvania, now that's what I'm talking about! I was so sad to see the classic Jack Kirby/Stan Lee Silver Surfer (and Galactus) not represented well in the Fantastic Four movies (or for that matter, for the movies themselves to receive lackluster treatment). I love the Silver Surfer - definitely...

    It doesn't play out overwhelming. I have used the class. I didn't own the field. OK, I owned the field becase the rest of the players could not find their rears with both hands. That's another story. Fighter, 1d8 +str, all day. with a longsword. 1d12+str with a great ax. All day.

    What about the mass damage for a first level character? 1d6 hitting two out of every three attacks, all day long, never running out of blasts? Wow. I'll give it a whirl, though.

    I don't mind. That is what gaming is. My son and group are a bit on the power gaming side. However I have used it and it balances will with pathfinder classes. I would play test as is before making changes.

    A CR3+ against a 2nd level party? I would hope they got their butts kicked - that SHOULD have been a TPK or close to it. Wow.

    Falin, actually almost all of my problems with 3.5 went away with Pathfinder - and 3.5 destroyed almost all my problems with 2.0 (I skipped 3.0). I went from a 3" binder of house rules to about 3 pages with 3.5, and now I'm down to about a half-dozen "rules" I kept (killed familiars hurt casters,...

    Hey Nij Seems like I'm gonna have a good time with you at the roleplaying table. Your characters are intrigueing and mystifying...definitely a break from the normal drab of a sorcerer or warrior. Awesome gaming!

    Hello Nijineko i hear you have a pretty good base for online games, was wondering if you knew someone that would like to run a DnD 3.5 online via YIM or the chat room or something. p.s. that feline you have with the rainbows is both odd and entertaining at the same time

What are you looking for?:
As both a player or gm, I look for people with fairly high ethical and moral standards. I look for ones whose belief in something is strong enough to change their actions. I look for daily effort at success and remorse with renewed commitment at failure in those beliefs. Those beliefs need not necessarily be the same as my own, but I do look for as strongly held. It is people like these, whom in my personal experiences, are the most rewarding people to play with in game, and to know in life.

Rule of Yes

by nijineko on 10-28-2014 at 09:08 AM
In my various campaign rules postings, I have listed my preferences as a GM. However, I would like it explicitly stated that I believe in the Rule of Yes: if it is not forbidden or defined, it's allowable; and even if it is forbidden and/or defined, we can discuss a workaround... - and am willing to discusses and make exceptions to my preferences and even the game rules on a case-by-case basis. I like working with my players, and enabling them to accomplish their goals for their characters.

Traps for sale, new traps for old....

by nijineko on 10-09-2012 at 12:06 AM
A cat like me sees a lot of things sitting in odd corners. Few sentients pay attention to cats, unless we are making noise, or are trying to communicate on the move. Over the years, I have collected a number of interesting odds and ends. I once tried giving away a bunch of them, but it turned out that the operation of the various and sundry proved so complex, that it did not work out well for the poor recipient.

So I thought I would give some of them away one at a time. Drop me a line,

Character Generation....

by nijineko on 07-22-2011 at 01:29 AM
Unless specified otherwise on a per campaign basis, character generation uses the following method (please see further requirements at the end of this post):

4d6, drop lowest die, generate column of six stats.

Repeat twice more, generating two more columns.

No switching numbers between columns.

Pick best column.

Assign numbers from chosen column to stats as you see fit.

Apply racial / template / etc., adjustments.

second off, to my players and game masters... i am still alive, but will be mostly offline for long periods of time. even email will be slow to get to me. to the point that
