    I'll be using Excel for my GM screen. Putting it together from scratch - small project there. It serves several purposes: - Tracking PC and NPC stats and damage - Recording combat initiative - Tracking use of actions (three per round) - Tracking combat positions (front or back row) I'm...

    7) Introducing some superpower, like magic or insane tech, without fully accounting for how it would change society.This one is the most abused by Hollywood. Namely, I'm thinking of vampires and werewolves co-existing in the normal world. If I see another vampire in high school...:rolleyes:

    These pregens listed will be used in the Con. There's more info on the way for Danica, Farengar, Aia and Mercer. And I'm considering adding some bonus features for Farkas and Aela as well. Farkas's modified Physical is 13, reduced by his heavy armor from 16. This also reduces his physical max...

    Well, if P&PG runs a "rules-light" or "rules-heavy" game contest, we might make some strides toward making their definitions concrete. I really see one of P&PG's strengths as the chatroom. So we should probably be running the "Chat-friendly Adventure" contest.

    Some players will ignore these just as easily as they'll ignore the danger of an iron golem. My current wisdom is to have a backup plan. Go ahead and TPK - if the player's can't recognize an overwhelming challenge, they deserve it - but then either allow the players to "restore last...

    An...afterthought? What's the Mission of P&PG? How does it differ from the missions of other gaming forum/websites? "Virtual tabletop" is pretty well cornered by Roll20. "D&D forum" is pretty well cornered by ENworld (or every other RPG site?) "(insert P&PG niche here)" is pretty well...

    Well, there's already a respectable One Page Dungeon contest, and it seems Soft Serve has found a good 2 Page RPG contest (judging by the response quality of the judges). So what does that leave us? And what systems does P&PG have in place that relate to contests? Polls, obviously. Can the...

    Bravo for taking on the challenge of writing an uber-short RPG! It sounds easy, doesn't it? Yeah, I dread the idea. The uber-short game I'm trying to write is probably getting closer to 100 pages than 50. :(

    They say, in comedy anyway, that timing is everything. Is there a good or bad time for us (me) to advertise the P&PGcon on other websites? Any guidelines?

    "Countdown" from What's O.L.D. is N.E.W.: Want something to end in a certain number of rounds, without anyone knowing what the actual time limit will be? Grab a pool of dice - I think the default is 6d6 - and whenever you roll a 6, that die gets removed from the pool. Each roll is another...

Salamanthar's Campaign: Part #12

by cigamnogard on 04-01-2010 at 07:46 PM
999, 5th of Aryth
12th bell
Corridor heading to the east wing of Fairhold
Fairhaven, capital of Aundair

Salamanthar strode quickly on his way back to the Ministry of Justice. His stomach turning with either Jack’s information or all the grape juice he had drank. Arrah for all of her ten feet moved gracefully behind and off to one side of him. To Salamanthar’s immediate right sauntered Arigar. Behind them came Doltar and Rijkert at a more leisurely pace. Taking

999, 5th of Aryth
11th bell
Salamanthar’s Office - Ministry of Magic
Fairhaven, capital of Aundair

“So I see your Warlord Adal has to keep up my Warlord Darro.” commented Baron Delgado McLoud de Vasquez de la Penna, also known as Jack. Who sat in Salamanthar’s office sipping grape juice which had horribly stained his handle bar mustache purple.
“Pardon – I do not follow you Jack.” Salamanthar was doing his best to not break into his huge customary grin when

Salamanthar's Campaign: Part #10

999, 5th of Aryth
shortly after 10th bell
Offices of the Ministry of Justice
Fairhaven, capital of Aundair

Salamanthar felt his stomach muscles clench up as if he had just encountered a bully from his old days at pre-magical school. He knew instinctively the baron could be an extremely useful friend or a very powerful enemy. Almost to prove his train of thought Salamanthar watched as Baron Delagdo de Vasquez de la Penna, also known as Jack, took total control of the

almost 10th bell
Courts of Justice – the east wing of Fairhold
Fairhaven, capital of Aundair

Salamanthar reviewed the promised reports, done as soon as ‘elfishly’ possible, then made his way to the massive east wing of the castle of Fairhold. His entourage fell into military order behind him with Arrah in the formation the cadence reverberated down the corridors. As they moved closer to the main Ministry of Justice division Salamanthar spotted a

999, 5th of Aryth
7th bell
Ministry of Magic
Fairhaven, capital of Aundair

Salamanthar rested his head on the coolness of his livewood desk. His self inflicted headache throbbed with every beat of his fire-elf heart. Last night after the debacle at the warehouse he had returned to his quarters to discover a parcel from nearby Passage. The handwriting was clearly that of his gnome friend Francis Ulysses Calvin Kyle the IV even though it only contained one word – congratulations!
