    Outstanding!! I really dig GURPS 4e, I just don't have the patience and time for the fiddly-bits at the moment. But I regularly STEAL stuff out of GURPS for my other games. There's just way too much great info in there to pass up! :-)

    First game crashed for various reasons. I'll run another one for any diehard Skyrim fans with the following solutions: - Game time determined by whole group, I guess weeknights are possible too. - Roleplaying/combat blend is flexible, but the default (at least in Skyrim) is 75% combat. -...

    1) Require them to watch your favorite sci-fi movie before the game starts, and be sure to give them a sizeable chunk of fiction to read based in your campaign setting. 2) Just go ahead and lose players, since that's why you're starting a new game anyway. 3) Star-Quake sounds cool to me, but...

    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.

    AKA: Translation spells, how the **** do they work? (Which presents another possibility: what if hard-to-translate concepts -- or words the gods don't like -- sound like meaningless noise when the spell translates them?) As another data point, older(?) versions of Tunnels & Trolls allowed...

    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...

    I always assumed that translation spells operated telepathically: they convey what the target means to say, not what he says. Plus, hey, it's magic. Even then, things can get strange if the target is non-humanoid, e.g. a sapient spider, or comes from a very different reality or plane of...

    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.

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.
