    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.

    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?

    It's more a reference to the group than the game. We play Shadowrun and occasionally we'll play a session or two of Paranoia. Last week we finished Me and My Shadow Mark IV for instance.

I recently got Changeling the Lost and am curious enough to give it a try, even more interested in Reign.
