    Results of Skill Check_______________________________________ You sense no trickery afoot here. Ordechai apparently has no idea how much the tome might actually be worth. But of course value is always relative to the beholder. Besides, according to him he's been carrying it for months and...

    Ordechai: Shrugs "In all honesty I probably exaggerated when I said I gave the blind beggar a berelle of my finest Tejj... it was above average at best." He chuckles. "I'll sell the tome to you for for five gold pieces. At least than I won't be taking a loss. Is that agreeable?" He asks

    woohoo backup! Had a look, nice, it's really kind of them to provide this for us. It is definitely workable data, nothing to worry about. I've been fiddling with MW quite a lot... and find that although a fairly simple interface, it can be made to do the job well. In particular I like the:...

    Depends on the formatting used. saved as html everything will be tags like <b>bold</b>, so those are easy enough to convert to say BBcode. As for OP it would be *bold* instead. Using regex would do the job with some intelligent work. As for spamming, you probably wouldn't spam, but it would...

    Yeah I dunno how we need to format it for easy upload to another forum? I've never tried that before. I'm pretty sure that sort of thing would be under administrator purview because it could easily be considered 'flooding' or 'spamming' to post a new thread with hundreds of posts from another...

    The inscription in the tome provokes a powerful compulsion to imagine a dark fantasy. Something ambitious, yet evil, like a throne of skulls made from your enemies. For an instant you want to believe the tome can make such a wish come true. Thankfully you realize you did not beckon those dark...

    As you pass through after Ania you find yourself in a dank, dimly lit tunnel with another identical gate about twenty feet away. The air within stinks of half-rotten meat and old bloodstains. Both walls of the tunnel have been crudely excavated to make a holding cell (complete with iron bars)...

    He crosses his arms and grunts in response to Ania. It seems like she already developed a peculiar image of him, but he lets its slide this time and obliges. He will keep quiet and will just be a silent observer.

Although locked fast and solidly braced, Ania points out a smaller gate the size of a regular door cut into one of the larger ones. This smaller gate has its own lock and a viewing port with a...

Kingdom Generator

by Narayan on 03-07-2011 at 12:47 AM
I designed this kingdom generator for my new world of Khodax.

Step one, on a piece of engineering graph paper draw a regional map to the scale of 20 miles per square. Include major geological features like rivers, forests, hills and mountains.

Kingdom Size:
Roll 1d100 x 10 square miles (You can adjust this to create larger or smaller kingdoms.) After you calculate the square mileage of the kingdom, have the PC outline on the map where his borders will be.

Narayan is scars_of_carma

by Narayan on 08-24-2010 at 04:06 PM
Yes its me. I wanted to change my handle cause scars_of_carma is what I was using for all my other handles on automotive-forums and instant-messengers.

I realized that if I was online specifically to game, I didn't want guys Im'ing me to talk about cars its too distracting. That's why I've decided to use different handles for different hobbies.

I did try and get scars_of_carma literally changed or at least deleted but the admins didn't reply to my request so sorry
