    I suppose I should elaborate. 3:35 AM is likely a lousy time to do it. But it never stopped me before. First you need to define "romance". Are we taking the normal interplay of men and women seeking love? The overblown drama of a bodice ripper? Or vising the brothel for a bit? Simple, I...

    Something tells me it's a problem. Phone pile. All the phones in the middle of the table. First person to reach for one before the game is called pays for the pizza.

    Eastern culture is pretty blood soaked too. Actions have consequences. I have always played that way. If you want a low/no combat game you neeed to offer appropriate conflicts. 40 Orcs with swords are not the deal. You also need to offer your players a satsifying means for resolving...

    The Twelve Worlds Setting It kind of grabbed my brain, moved in, and set up shop. None of this existed two weeks ago, ships, logos, descriptions, none of it. In short an outline for a space fantasy game. Still plenty to do to make a real setting out of it.

    Role playing is a game, a game is a conflict. Ergo you cannot write conflict out of role playing games. If you don't have it you are writing poetry. Stories required conflict too. Now that said conflict can be resolved various ways. Combat isn't always the best. Yes, you can design and play...

    Tools are as useful as you make them. Too much reliance on a given tool can flavor things and not always well. I'm all in favor of anything that make the mechanics of the game run more smoothly and not in favor it if gets i n the way. If index cards speed things up for you, do it. If a spell...

    The Ancient Greek aphorism "know thyself" Is I think one of the wisest ever. Once you have reached that you have a handle on everything. Congratulations on reaching the epiphany of knowing thy gaming self. Sadly it is the journey that no one can make for you. Now you can make progress...

    I would be concerned if it was best always wins circumstance. While yes it might for the way to bet the race is not always to the swift. If it is then why have a contest?

    Naw, that's some river in Costa Rica! I am interested in joining your 4E, although I have been playing 3.5 for several years. I own the PHB and that is it, but would be willing to buy more rule books as the campaign developed. I will be leaving for home (Holland, MI) after this exam week. I don't know if you read any of my page but I am looking for experienced DM's and players. Let me know if you are still interested during or after summer. It is an hour and a half travel for me but I may be willing to make the trip once a week for a great D&D sesh!

    Hey there. Got a message that you are looking for players. I like the idea of a home brew campaign. Right now I'm running a 4E using the published adventures by Wizard (first time DM, needed all the help i could get.) I'd like to be a PC again if you don't need a DM for the group. Also I don't mind playing a support class if you need one. (I know in 3.5 it can be almost impossible finding someone who wants to be the parties "Heal Wagon")

    I've used the standard point buy system for my group with the addition of 2 extra points (all stats start at 10 instead of one being 8) and it has seemed to make everything a little more enjoyable without overpowering. A group of experienced players, however, may not be so crushed by the dice as newbies tend to be so it's really whatever you want.

    Please contact me if you're still interested. I'm pretty mature if I need to be but I like when the party has a sense of humor. (Not every encounter calls for a walk down dreary lane after all)
