    Creation Dungeons in Amulet are created one room at a time, and any given room can, through the process of random generation, reveal itself to actually be part of another, larger room. The following rules apply to creating the dungeon levels as you go. Roll 2d8 to find table results. THE...

    Sorry if it's lost in translation, but it sounds to me like you're not getting enough mileage out of the GM-fudge rule. Related to Rule Zero. If you're playing a game like D&D, all you need to know is your character's level, which will give you an appropriate bonus to add to your die roll. You...

    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...

    Nah, we should save that, unless we are towards the end of a given exploration period and haven't used it yet. If not, we'll just rely on the augury and danger sense. Perhaps a study via detect magic and detect evil, then kiri it. ^^

    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.

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.

Salamanthar's Campaign: Part #11

by cigamnogard on 03-31-2010 at 07:47 PM
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

by cigamnogard on 03-31-2010 at 03:54 PM
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

Salamanthar's Campaign: Part #9

999, 5th of Aryth
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

Salamanthar's Campaign: Part #8

by cigamnogard on 03-26-2010 at 07:47 PM
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!
