    Did I say "original concept?" Hope not. Anyway, they're welcome to send me letters for something I'm not selling. I'll plead the 1st.

    Beginning work on the Dungeon section. But here's the party-game part: GAME ANNOUNCEMENTS – some events in the game are so important that they must be announced by an otherworldly, god-like, or dungeon master-like voice. These game announcements can be made by anyone besides the PC who caused...

    Classes The heroes of the game find themselves in the mysterious dungeon with only a portion of their normal gear, so they must rely first on their combat and magic skills to survive. The following classes describe the beginning powers and gear of each character. When characters gain level...

This section tells you everything you need to know about the magical amulets worn by each character, how to make characters, and how to convert core rules Modos RPG characters to...

    Sorry to do this, but I have a family event that takes priority on September 20. I have to postpone this game, but once we get some RSVPs, we'll reschedule as soon as possible.

    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.

    It's probably not, actually. I just saw something saying that the campaign (adventure?) only takes PCs up to level 8 or 15. Not quite Tiamat-level, huh?

    Hey really good comments on the Ravenloft post I did. I'm going to look into the Heroes of Horror book and maybe use their taint rules there! Thanks again

    Greetings,

    I am a player LFG and based on your write up, I would like to play in a game run by you (I'm recovering from a bad DM...). I don't have a location suitable for a game, but am willing to travel a little for a good game.

    :^)

A Summary of the Ages

by DMMike on 08-12-2009 at 03:10 PM
The World is a wonderful place. Civilizations come and go; disasters strike, and the earth grows anew. Of the ages of people, there have been three. The first is largely unknown, the second lies mostly in legend, and the third is where they find themselves presently.

The first age was the time of the ancients. They ruled a glorious kingdom and enjoyed all the fruit of the earth. It is said that the ancients ruled over magic and monsters, that they were divine. These demigods gave
