    I'm officially a supporter. I don't need compensation for my meager contribution - that would be akin to buying something, and then getting your money back with the purchase. So thanks for the great site, admins! Keep up the good work.

    How many languages are there in Trollworld? If they're like Spanish, Italian, and French, then sure - not that hard to speak each of them. If they're like Japanese, Indian, and Norwegian, I'd call it a telepathic link.

    Yes fm, there's always that issue: what does the spell actually do? Does it create meaning in the recipient's head, so that he's hearing the actual words spoken -and- the translation? Does it give him perfect understanding of the words, so that no translation is needed? Or does it make the...

    Greetings back! How did you find us? P&PG is a great website for finding local players and live chatroom action. You're very likely to find some game designers and playtesters here, too!

    My pleasure. Thanks for braving a new game! I wish I had a more roleplaying-centric module for you Mora, but like Donald Rumsfeld says, "you don't go to war with the army you wish you had." If I manage to snag you again, I'll tip the scale in the other direction.

    Doesn't have to be fantasy only. Have you ever plopped a Babel fish into your ear? You need to choose a perspective for the translation. A dictionary or a person are probably the best choices. If the spell uses a dictionary, then you get the most boring, literal, direct translations. If it...

    Parting thought: the turn cycle would flow more smoothly if there was an Announce Action (or pass) phase, followed by a Rolling phase, in which anyone who had announced actions would roll their dice in initiative order (initiating character first). And then, I wouldn't be going up through 20 lines...

    Jehovah died, Tre. All white disappeared from the world. The color scheme looks fun on my screen, but I would probably disapprove in print. The setting looks fun too, but I don't know about diceless systems.

    I am, strangely, having a lot of fun writing up the rules catalog for this version of the game. They're shorter and sweeter than before, and I expect to look at rule dependencies differently, so they'll end up being less dependent. All of which translates, of course, into your ease of use when...

    No hassle: the other three players are newbies too (to the RPG, not roleplaying). If you could make any Skyrim character, who would it be? (This is called your character concept.)

    Oh. Well, that is really cool! It sounds like a lot of fun, too. My concern is that it sounds highly subjective, so players might find that their efforts don't matter very much since it seems to just boil down to GM opinion. I hope that's not the case.

    Thanks for the invite to be a friend I read your bio and I feel your pain, I just moved to a new place and I can't find a soul that plays RPG's. I've played RPG's since Fifth grade....I just turned 38 so I've been playing a while! I look forward to reading your next Ravenloft installment! Talk to you later!

    Hey, I just saw your comments on my blog. Thanks! Mentioning the fire beetles, I actually sweated it a little bit there. I thought those beetles would toast the party. I continue to be amazed at how resiliant these 4E characters can be. We had another session on Monday. We added another player and I'm glad. It's a hybrid bard/warlord. I'm glad too, because I think I put a little to much challenge into it. I used bug bears but could never get combat advantage against the party so the bugbears just slugged it out. I'll try to get the blog out tomorrow. Take it easy.

    Man, I'm enjoying reading your blog. Wish I was back in So Cal so I could join your game. I was down in Pedro on business last week. Sure was nice to visit. My trip was too short. Liked your reviews on the shows. Last time I was in Vegas I did the Star Trek things, Mandalay Bay Aquarium and the Luau (As Vegas as you can imagine) thing at the Imperial Palace where I stayed. I didn't gamble at all but there's definatley plenty to do there without that.
  5. I didn't hear anything about the starwars campaign in a while now, are you still going to do it?

    Good hearing from you. How have you and the better half been these last 2 months? Good, i hope. Hows' her school going? What have you been up too? I am hoping to join in next week with your Ravenloft campaign, if the home remodel project is done by then, or course. I hope.

    I was told you are really good with star wars stuff. Thom Amon told me I should get in touch with you for my question. started making my charecter last night and I could not find any Togruta (Shaak Ti). So can I still play that race and if so how would I make stats. If no one knows it is fine I will just play as cathar. Or you can find it in the star wars stuff under Starting a Charector.

About Me
I'm 30 years old. I've GMed various games to my home gaming group in WV, but after moving to CA I was finding myself withdrawling from the lack of roleplaying games.

Reaper Mini Kickstarter

by Tamerath on 08-05-2012 at 02:14 PM
I know this is my blog, but I recently pledged to a kickstarter for the Reaper miniatures line "Bones". I'm not one to usually advertise for a company but this is so sick I thought I'd share it on here. So Reaper Minis have recently launched their BONES collection and they were looking for ways to explode their line. They've already surpassed that goal....but the deals you get for being a pledge member are just incredible. Currently for a 100 dollar pledge you are getting

New Group? Possibly

by Tamerath on 02-26-2010 at 12:51 PM
It feels like forever ago when I used to post to my blogs on this site. It's good to be back though. The topic of today is finding a good gaming group. My last group was awesome, nothing bad to say about them other than I can't seem to get back in the game for one reason or another. So it's back to hitting the pavement to find another group of players willing to game with me and my fiance.

I posted a fresh and new campaign in the registry

I didn't know Obsidianportal existed till today when I got the email that our site "allied" to them. Fortunate for me, I checked it out and found a really cool tool to all of us dms out there. Basically the site is a wiki of sorts that manages the information we type into it...I've messed around with it and here's mine only an hour.

Stained lace hangs neatly from eight canopied beds. In each bed, a figure of a young woman lays motionless, pale hands folded over her chest. In the eighth bed lay Ireena Kolyana dressed not in the armor you last saw her in, but a white wedding dress.

Additional Skill: Arcana
