    I'm creating cheat-sheets for players to use so they're not overwhelmed by options (skills, perks, spells...and equipment. Why not?) when creating characters. I'm currently using the oldest baseline - the fighter, caster, healer, and thief. So two questions: - Is this a fast and easy way for...

    In theory, conversations get old, while GM tools don't. This forum is probably safer for necros than the discussion-style ones.

    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.

    Don't really know how to answer that.

But I also know that quite often, I don't always use the right words in my search criteria, so...

    I'm going to necro this one to get the Atlas of Law back on the plate. This is a updated version, still has some boobies so NSFW. (Incidentally spoke to the Artist of that piece. It is like he read my mind on Domian Court fashion.)

    DMMike replied to a thread [Spells / Magic] Mass Sheep in Campaign Resources
    Does this summon real sheep or magical sheep? The spell level (4) points toward a real sheep, I suspect. Animate dead works almost as well. Whenever I find a dead animal on the road in Skyrim, it gets animated and follows me for 60 seconds.

    Exactly. My preference for Pathfinder over D&D 3.5 comes from their efforts to eradicate the No monster. The Old School approach, anything not forbidden is permitted. Followed by forbid very little. You Malruhn are Old School. So sayth the Dean.

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. However, what I look for in a group are people who are laid back and just have fun with the game, some kind of role playing, and a DM who isn't so hard core and lets his/her players progress through their story instead of forcing them along it.
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.
