    Wow, some people take things way too seriously. I could never torture my dice like that, imagine how poorly they'd roll afterwards?

    Trash it with supplemental material? How can you not like supplemental material?

    This makes me want to roll every dice I have with an excel spreadsheet ready to record and find their averages. Which, I guess, means "yes" we believe in diminishing probability? If you have a record of the last 50 rolls of a dice, and are familiar with the results before rolling, and you feel...

    Does that actually exist? Well... apparently so. Interesting way to adjust the probability of a roll. But after a few bored moments of staring at d20's I think they're built against that type of thing. The 2 and 8 sides are next to the 20. It might be possible to use Dice Control on a...

    Some people have that special dice that most recently rolled a NAT 1, meaning its less likely to roll a 1 again in the future because the odds that it rolls 1 twice are 1/400 right? How true is that, or is it just superstition? This is basically the same as the old "flip a coin three times"...

    Simpler. Basically "an armor by any other name would still add +X Defense, so why do we have a bunch of tables listing various armor names and the one point of difference between them when not naming them would work just as well, save page space in print, and be easier to record on a character...

    This is the plan. I'd rather not have three separate boxes on a character sheet for Slashing, Bashing, and Piercing defense. I'd rather give armor a Damage Reduction to the one(s) its resistant to and keep it simple. (Same for damage types like Fire / Arcane / Acid etc.)

    Like I mentioned in the second post, incorporating specific protections against damage types isn't hard with the proposed rules-lite version, and was of course going to be included either way. Realism is a good place to start, but when it gets in the way of function it can be sacrificed without...

    Well that (the specific damage type protection) is still applicable. Generic armor that provides only a +# AR would be the standard, but also available would be armors that provide damage redcution from certain types of attacks. Bashing, Slashing, Fire, Acid, and so on. So you're not missing out on...

    So in D&D and however many other RPGs there are a plethora of armors, not really much different from one another. Scale Mail. Breastplate, and Banded Mail all have their "how they were made and what of" text blocks, but statistically the armor rating difference is usually by one point. So why even...

    There's PLENTY of good material in there. SCP-093 and the various "color" tests made with it could probably last long enough to play a handful of sessions at least, or even be a full campaign on its own.

    Sucks, but I'm glad it's not an issue on my end. Unless this is all some elaborate ruse put on by you, the most cowardly of rogues. Or the most roguish of cowards... I can't tell sometimes.

    Am I alone in this? The flashchat page only loads "Having trouble? Try HTML 5." Which says the page is unavailable.

    Wondering if anyone has used any monsters from the SCP Foundation page in a game yet, and if you have, how it went. If you don't know the SCP, think of it like an Area 51 or Men in Black of sorts. Tracking and containing the supernatural and dangerous beings in our world and keeping them...

    As I will be starting my EMT class next Tuesday, I will need to wait until after it is done before trying to provide items that could be used for this.

    Makes me wish that my home computer would let me onto the Chat. Don't think it would be good for me to be on the Fire Department computer to run a game in the P&PG Chat. Guess I will just have to wait till I can get a new computer and faster internet access. When that eventually happens, perhaps I...

    Hey ET, long time no see.

    I was wondering, do you still have your homebrew Traveller campaign setting online somewhere? I'm running a Traveller campaign (Just did char gen with the group over the course of the last couple days in fact) and I thought it would be awesome to put your setting to use.

    (Also, an interesting point, we're playing online over MSN messenger, so if you or anybody you know want in on such a game, feel free to send them my way, I can make it work.)

    Hi there,

    I've got 3 experienced Traveller RPGers that are looking for a GM to run a campaign over Skype. Willing to DL other software as necessary, access to all books, version not an issue, though we'd like to stay away from campaigns where everyone is in the military and on a starship. We're all in the Eastern Time Zone but are fairly flexible with playing times.

    Could probably use one or two more players but that is also a GM decision.

    What do you think?

    HH

    I saw that you were trying to reach me for the 3.0 I am still very interested in playing, but I did not know where to go to start rolling stats. There is nothing posted in the 3.0 community page. We could even roll tonight between boardgames if needed.

    Hello and welcome to the site. Along with myself, Aveal, Harley, and Starwolf013 are in a group that meets about every other Saturday in Monroeville. We actually meet at Aeval's & Harley's house, since it is better for them in not having to find someone to watch their kids. It also isn't out of the way, like where I'm actually located. We are looking at needing a couple of players. We are currently running the "Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth" campaign and are using the 2E systems. I am the DM for this game, but it would be nice to have someone that is willing to DM also. This way maybe I could have a chance to eventually just run a character for a change. Check out the listing on the Campaign Invitations section of the site. I have been posting the games sessions on there for people on the site to follow the party's progress. Hope to hear back from you.
