    Some reflections on my homebrew here: In a melee, or close combat amongst several combatants, you generally have two choices: try to kill the guy next to you, or prevent yourself from being killed. Secondary choices are to protect your buddy from getting killed, or assist your buddy in killing...

    Game's full as of this post. I highly encourage interested persons to swing by anyway and watch. If there's a seat open, you could still get in. Also, I added a dice-rolling note to the Chatroom Conventions post.

    This is a question for modern-genre players who have dabbled in medieval games: What does more damage: a .308 round or a battleaxe? or a more subjective question: How does "damage" from medieval games compare to "damage" from modern games?

    Hmmm...let's weigh in: Setting = Campaign World = where a campaign takes place. Campaign = collection of adventures tied together with a theme. Or a Macguffin. Adventure = a roleplaying introduction, climax, and denouement. Session = one sitting of a roleplaying game. QED

    To add some rhyme and reason to our game, we'll use the following conventions during the game: Marching order: The party will choose a default formation in which to move. This can be whatever you want; a column is most common in dungeons. You must also determine who stands in each position. ...

    Good catch. But I'm sure Malruhn was using the royal "guy." Let's call out some offenders of the mistakes. The latter being (apologies on formatting): 1. Not thinking about basic infrastructure. 2. Not explaining why events are happening now.3) Creating fictional versions of real-life human...

Of course, Skyrim had help from Final Fantasy and D&D too. If you're interested, I'll release the adventure module I'm using...

    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...

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

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!
