    tesral started a thread [DM / Player Tools] Observations and questions. in Campaign Resources
    This forum does not get a lot of love. I was paging back thought the pages and I get 4 pages in and 6 years back. The question is do I necro those older threads to bring the content to people's attention or restart the threads? I tend to update stuff fairly frequently. I have two Wikis...

    tesral replied to a thread [DM / Player Tools] It's the Law in Campaign Resources
    I'm going to necro this one to get the Atlas of Law back on the plate. This is a updated version, still has some boobies so NSFW. (Incidentally spoke to the Artist of that piece. It is like he read my mind on Domian Court fashion.)

    I used to use a two step system of saves at one third and two thirds damage to keep fighting. Unlike the demodivators above not everyone fight to the last drop of blood. I replaced that with massive damage. However it isn't a fixed number but goes up depending on you hit die. Con+ d6=1, d8=2,...

    Exactly. My preference for Pathfinder over D&D 3.5 comes from their efforts to eradicate the No monster. The Old School approach, anything not forbidden is permitted. Followed by forbid very little. You Malruhn are Old School. So sayth the Dean.

    Primers should be primers, not encyclopedias. I have the same issue with the Vista City game world. A sizable wiki now exists of that game, but a primer for it must need be much shorter..

    I wasn't expecting to have anyone contact me so soon on here, especially someone from out west. I'm hoping to have some luck on here. i tried getting a Shadowrun game going lsat year and it was a mess. THere aren't that many people areound here doing the desk top game thing anymore it seems or they're not looking for anyone. I'm hoping to start a Fallout game here. I know more about that series than anything else. I've played D&D 2.5 but we didn't take it all that seriously and fiddled with the rules alot since a few of us were new to the game. I have more experience with PC game versions like Neverwinter Nights.

What are you looking for?:
My wife and I would like to get a bi-weekly saturday group together at our home. Our preference would be 3.x edition AD&D/ Pathfinder but we're open to most anything. We are looking for a mature group. We like a good mix of hack/slash and roleplaying. We really enjoy a good storyline. Since we both are strictly players, we are in need of a GM and a few more players.
I am also looking to get back into Star Wars. My wife isn't interested in that particular game but I really enjoyed playing it. I would prefer to host that as well.

Biography:
I admit I am geek and proud of it. I watch sci-fi, play tabletop games such as Dungeons and Dragons and Star Wars, and play countless computer games. I don't have much of a social life because I'm married with children. I don't mind because my kids and my very understanding wife always come first. It's nice to have a wife that loves to play as well.
