    Here's my old version of ranges: And the new version. There are four ranges, all somewhat abstract so rulers aren't necessary: Close. This is the front line of battle. Close range is where melee takes place, where someone could hit you with...

    For those of you who have been waiting for light, modular rules, grid-free combat, hero points, spells requiring concentration, and easy, fast math in a free roleplaying game: you're in luck. D&D 5 is out, and they beat me to the printing press. But if you were hoping for customizable...

    Step# 1 - Roleplay. Say what your character would say, and mimic his hand and facial movements. 2 - Contest. When the GM thinks you might not succeed at step 1, roll a d20. Add an attribute bonus from physical, mental, or metaphysical, depending on what you're doing. If you have a related...

    Just give me a start time (and time zone), game description, number of players desired, and link, so I can fill in our shortcut table above! Carodwen, to run Pathfinder, you could use the whiteboard to move miniatures, but you might be better off going mapless and giving the PCs the benefit of...

    The game rules are ready to go - I'm just filling in the details and bonus material like the sample adventure and sample monsters. I've done some streamlining and some expanding, so there are a lot of changes to be discovered. I will be releasing an unfinished edition or two to facilitate...

    I don't know anything about Exalted, but I'll help if I can. Is an "ignition source" a special rule in Exalted? Or another term for plot initiation/instigation? In general, I don't see why peasant revolt is a bad way to start a game. . .

    "I pick up the tea and take it away." "I set the table. With knives and forks." "I try my hand at preparing a meal." 45 minutes in, and it's still not interesting?! (No, I didn't watch it for 45 minutes!)

    10 monsters written, 63 planned. Of course, the beginning of the Bestiary discusses three different ways to make your own monsters, but here's another freebie: Slime, green, level 1 Attributes: P 11, M 10, MP 10 Skills: fight (unarmed) +1 Perks: weapon focus (acid touch) Gear: acid touch d6...

    One thing sells your game here: the post you write for it. See mine, post #2. I think I'll add some bold and ask other GMs to do the same - it'll help navigation a bit. Elsewhere, you're welcome to gather players as you see fit.

    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...

    Let's do the 13th then. And make it official. Maybe Matt can give us one of those cool blue thread backgrounds for it. Can Umi run a game on the 13th, too? I'll run another Skyrim game, just because it's so fun to send Youtube soundtrack messages through the chat interface. And I'll send...

    Well get to work! I'll be rallying the troops soon, since I have a few other bites. If I can't get a regular thing going, maybe a one-day game-a-thon will suffice for now?

    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

    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
