    This is the discussion thread for my upcoming HoliCon game, but anyone's welcome to discuss. I'll be running my indie game, which is intended to be rules-light, so picking it up quickly should be easy. The game's homepage is here, but some rules have changed for simplicity - hence this discussion...

    Some "cursed" items I see as misused. The necklace of strangulation for example. It's an assassination tool, not a cursed item. It does exactly what it is meant to do.

    Yes! I think this sort of system would work great for chases. It replaces "was my roll good enough to catch him?" with "okay, my progress indicates I've almost got him!" I just spotted something in Green Ronin's Song of Ice and Fire Roleplay, and thought it looked like a good idea. So here's...

    The roll many pick one is an Iron Claw mechanic. You skill/ability is based on the dice and type you get to roll from d4 to d12 and the number of dices, some times of mixed types.

    Progress just got remodeled. It's an abstract way for the GM to measure goal completion. Here's an example: 3 PCs are trying to sew enough tassled uniforms to thoroughly confuse a gang of banditos when it arrives in the village. The GM sets the PC's max progress at 60, and bandito max...

    Roll X choose 1 sounds like a very nice simplifying step. You could simplify those task types further by making one standard action, and anything more complicated is just a combination of multiple actions.

What are you looking for?:
I'm not currently looking for a group, as I found a great bunch of players through pen and paper.

About Me
Biography:
I am currently playing in a D&D and Star wars Campaign that is on a rotating schedule. I use paper and pen to keep in touch with group members and as a way to find other players who might be a good match for our group.
