    Welcome to P&PG! We forum, we chat, and we play-by-post. And we're running online mini-conventions, so stay tuned for those. I've been thinking about a 5e game too, but I prefer Tuesdays. Are you guys DMing or no?

    You can now call me familiar. And if I ever run a modern game (I'm way overdue), SCP will definitely be a resource.

    It also depends on what the mini is made out of. Minis made from resin tend to be more expensive than those made of other plastics. Minis sold at this place, http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/ are really expensive partly because they're made from resin, oh and they're done on limited runs too.

    Creation Dungeons in Amulet are created one room at a time, and any given room can, through the process of random generation, reveal itself to actually be part of another, larger room. The following rules apply to creating the dungeon levels as you go. Roll 2d8 to find table results. THE...

    Sorry if it's lost in translation, but it sounds to me like you're not getting enough mileage out of the GM-fudge rule. Related to Rule Zero. If you're playing a game like D&D, all you need to know is your character's level, which will give you an appropriate bonus to add to your die roll. You...

These game announcements can be made by anyone besides the PC who caused...

    So, um, I just made a huge project out of this. And I'm soliciting help, for ideas if nothing else. This is Project Amulet. It will be a self-generating dungeon crawl. Probably GM-less. Fast, Furious, and Fun, but it's not Savage Worlds. It's based on the classic arcade game Gauntlet and...

    Keeping the event as a "convention" will indeed take some work. However, minimal work will be needed to simply run a Chatroom Gameday. For my part, I'm ready to run another game, and manage my game's player registration as well. The Find or Advertise forum is actually a great place for this.

    Okie dokie, well lemmie know if that's at all interesting to you... from my years of experience with D&D... its like D&D but better. More serious and at the same time less so, definately potentally funnier. Definately more deadly. It was based off of the older D&D rule structure and greatly improved.

    The play date is critical to my wife and I, and my friend in the game. Both of our daughters are only children, so the more friends / kids we can expose them to the better. It is awesome to watch them play and imitate us too.

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.
