    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...

    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...

    I purchased a book recently that adds rules for ships and mass combat to RuneQuest. I have read through it once and it looks to make mass combat somewhat easier to run. I'm going to have to read through it again and play through a couple of test mass combats before I actually use it in my Magic...

    I try and keep my laws similar to modern day laws. That might not be historically correct or realistic, but I try not to ruin the players fun by making the game world hard to comprehend. Therefore, I'll cut corners from time to time. I have worked a basic set of laws for my fantasy world that I...

    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'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...

    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 Minecraft version is neat, but I find that it's missing a lot of the locals that you would expect. For instance, I've gone looking for the Prancing Pony in Bree, and so far can't even find the village. But considering how Minecraft's are made, I can understand if the village isn't in the map.

    Hey Skunk, those buildings you are asking about are Warhammer buildings. They have about twenty of them. They Look pretty good and go together very fast. They are not very stable though Nothing like the World Works stuff. But they are all free. The basing you asked about are the same as the walls. One thickness of whatever. I use cardstock. Is ok but should be something like foam board or something. It is printed with the rest of the walls and roofs.

    Hey, Skunk. Saw your stuff on World Works Games. In the forum. Yeah, that stuff is pretty cool. Just built the Watchtower. Earlier this year I got the Pub and Tavern and the Castle interior stuff. I like it. Haven't figured out what the chipboard actually is, but I don't think it is the same as hardboard.
  4. I've bought some new stuff from World Works, but no I haven't been building anything lately either. I did pick up some of the FoamWerks stuff, foamboard cutting tools and I really like the stuff. Best piece that I've seen so far is the http://www.foamwerks.com/tools/rabbet/ (Rabbet Cutter).

    It's really great for squaring the walls/floors on buildings! Also, I was looking at some work that one of the people over on the World Works forums was doing with chipboard/mattboard. It's thinner than foamcore, but stronger and I was considering setting up a modular dungeon with it. Here's the thread...
    http://www.worldworksgames.com/forum...ight=chipboard

    Looks like it will work out, but I want to buy some and figure out how to make a template/jig to cut out the baseboard and walls. That way I can mass produce the pieces and not have to worry about cutting the parts wrong!

    Hey, you been building any terrain lately? I built a couple of fold up buildings last month and bought some PDF's on line. But I been busy with all this mother-in-law stuff I have shut down every other part of my life. Will be a few more weeks before I get things back to normal. And a few more before I get back to building terrain.

    Hey, if you would like, I would be more than happy to cut a sheet of the blue or pink stuff up to fit in a box and ship it to you. Don't know what the shipping costs would be but I have the price at Lowes and Home Depot in my note book. Stuff runs from about $9 to about $16 a sheet. Would be happy to split the cost and ship you some.

About Me
Biography:
Until around 1990, I had played just about every game on the market, but after getting married, I didn't spend quite as much time. See my favorites for the ones I normally play. Mostly I like to play fantasy and sci-fi, but a good superhero game is fun as well. Will play mini games sometimes and have a Warhammer 40k Necro army at present, that I'm still painting. Also play City of Heroes/Villains and D&D Online.
