    the conflict resolution mechanic? well, it is a tertiary mechanic in order to provide a method of resolving deadlocks and ties to the primary method, noetic combat. i have been recently contemplating making it a quaternary mechanic so as to provide a greater focus on the purposed intent of the...

    Something tells me it's a problem. Phone pile. All the phones in the middle of the table. First person to reach for one before the game is called pays for the pizza.

    Eastern culture is pretty blood soaked too. Actions have consequences. I have always played that way. If you want a low/no combat game you neeed to offer appropriate conflicts. 40 Orcs with swords are not the deal. You also need to offer your players a satsifying means for resolving...

    tesral started a thread [Campaigns / Adventures] Twelve Worlds Setting in Campaign Resources
    The Twelve Worlds Setting It kind of grabbed my brain, moved in, and set up shop. None of this existed two weeks ago, ships, logos, descriptions, none of it. In short an outline for a space fantasy game. Still plenty to do to make a real setting out of it.

    Role playing is a game, a game is a conflict. Ergo you cannot write conflict out of role playing games. If you don't have it you are writing poetry. Stories required conflict too. Now that said conflict can be resolved various ways. Combat isn't always the best. Yes, you can design and play...

    Tools are as useful as you make them. Too much reliance on a given tool can flavor things and not always well. I'm all in favor of anything that make the mechanics of the game run more smoothly and not in favor it if gets i n the way. If index cards speed things up for you, do it. If a spell...

    The Ancient Greek aphorism "know thyself" Is I think one of the wisest ever. Once you have reached that you have a handle on everything. Congratulations on reaching the epiphany of knowing thy gaming self. Sadly it is the journey that no one can make for you. Now you can make progress...

    I would be concerned if it was best always wins circumstance. While yes it might for the way to bet the race is not always to the swift. If it is then why have a contest?

    Pacifist ideals - and games - work okay until you run into that one butt-head that doesn't wanna be peaceful and WANTS to fight. It may be a TV show, but I keep thinking of Kung Fu - Cain really wanted to live a peaceful life, but kept running into bad guys that just insisted that they needed to...

    I'm big on 3x5 index cards. As DM, I put all pertinent monster data on the cards for quick reference when playing, and I always put spells on cards, so I don't have to scramble with, "Was that a 100' range + 10'/level, or a 40' range + 20'/level??" While I'm not a Luddite, I'm still not...

    Apologies for delay. Path is badly shaken as mentioned, but he avoids fleeing in panic. Aamonkhad's beam lances it, as does the construct's concussion blast and energy bolt. In both cases, you must make a d20+manifester level against its SR--I assume SR/PR apply to these powers? In any case,...

    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.

My Favorite D&D 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.
