    Malruhn replied to a thread [Gear (General)] Deceptively useless Magical "Artifacts" in Campaign Resources
    Indeed! I remember racing into battle with "cursed" versions of my character's main weapon in hand - to "trip" and drop it accidentally as I was almost engaging the enemy. Invariably, one of the folks in the enemy party would pick it up and attempt to use it against us. (insert insane giggling...

    Mr. Al Gore - THANK YOU for inventing the internet. Stupidly simple problems have been vexing me, and because of your invention, people on the other side of the country have been able to lend their assistance! Okay, from Word, I was able to export my Primer as a .pdf - and went from 40mb in a...

    Yeah, Adobe starts at $299... I'll pass on that because I'm cheap.

    Okay, I'll put a ToC up as soon as I can get to it. Now for tech questions: 1. I use GiMP to edit pics - which leaves them HOLY CARP big in size. Even when I export them into .png files, they are still usually 12+mb in size. Is there a better way to do this? 2. I use CutePDFWriter to "print"...

    Tes, are you looking for a "Table of Contents" type outline, or something more? I can do either/both, but will need more specific request/directions for the "more" stuff. Oh, and I will NEVER do a dump - once finished, it becomes public domain. I have WAY too much plagiarized stuff in there to...

    Which is why I'm putting it all down on (e) paper. My Primer is in final edit stage, soon to be playtested, and my full phreaking TOME of the Known World is about 90% complete for the rough draft. After forcing myself to make 10-12 page descriptions fit into a one-column/half-page note, I've found...

    Good point. I concede to your wisdom - and sorry about the attempted hijacking.

    Malruhn replied to a thread [DM / Player Tools] It's the Law in Campaign Resources
    In my campaign world, each nation has their own laws. Some places are quite similar to others... and there are those that are WAY out there. I have them codified, and if players are smart, they can speak to the first guards they meet about the easiest ways to be thrown in prison or executed. I'm...

    I disagree, Tes. I think we were endangered when the first modules were printed, but enough of us out there LIKE to wing it that we aren't that endangered. Or at least that's the reality that I'm clinging to...

    Malruhn replied to a thread Why Fantasy? in Fantasy Discussion
    I'll toss my ten cents in (because my two cents are free), and I apologize in advance, because I may piss some folks off. Playing games is a time sink - a total waste of time. This leads me to genre. I can envision myself in EVERY other genre out there: I can see myself with a hat and six-guns...

    Oh. My. FLYING UNICORNS!!! The amount of butthurt is AMAZING for this - both in and out of game!! We have a player that recently was caught fudging dice rolls - he was a 4th level thief doing upwards of 60 points of damage on a sneak attack - even when he rolled 1's and 2's on his dice. When...

    Where does robbery come in? You know - whip out a knife and threaten to stick someone unless they hand over the goodies? It isn't officially "theft" by the definitions above, and it might be under some others, I'm just curious.

The Confessions of Kellionor Galabrion

by Groqx on 03-14-2010 at 03:27 PM

There were many turning points in my life, most of them terribly tragic. But do not offer me your pity, sympathy, or any sort of sentimentalities. The Racewar was long and hard on nearly everyone and my own story cannot be worse than any other. The important thing every person must realize is that from the depths of despair and loss one must hold on to the idea of hope. Usually the lowest, bleakest moments in ones life also contain opportunities for redemption from that foul and dark

1) Prologue: Deceitful Beginnings

by Groqx on 02-21-2010 at 02:52 PM
I didn’t know my parents at all. I mean to say I never met them and am not even sure of their names. My master told me they were of peasant stock and were killed in a raid upon their caravan. But what am I to believe of his words concerning my own parentage?

I found a document in a small wooden box inside the maid’s quarters when I was just a boy. One cannot even be sure if the receipt was for me or not, there were so many other children at the orphanage. I like to think it was

5) The Examination

by Groqx on 02-21-2010 at 02:24 PM
The morning sun shone bright in the east-facing windows of the Goodington house. Samuel had added the windows to the dining room with breakfast in mind and was never disappointed at that decision during this most early meal. He finished the thick slab of toast and was using his napkin to wipe the last of the butter from his hand when Cindy started to rise from the table.

She held little Samuel Junior in her arms and had indeed just finished feeding him his own breakfast. The little

6) The Woodcaller

by Groqx on 02-21-2010 at 01:23 PM
“Daddy?” said Samuel Jr. as he tugged on his father’s pant leg. His father was working on a table leg. Sam pumped his other leg on the pedal to keep the unfinished work spinning as he held the thin file in place. The groove was perfect and he picked a Rough cloth to smooth it even more, holding it against the wood with just the right amount of pressure as the wood spun beneath his hands.

Sam lifted his foot off the pedal and the soon-to-be table leg’s rotation began to slow immediately.
