    tried that at one point. Too complicated in that D&D would start to look like Rollmaster from the number of charts it required for exactly the reasons you give. Gave up on it. These days I have become one with the abstraction,

    I used to use a two step system of saves at one third and two thirds damage to keep fighting. Unlike the demodivators above not everyone fight to the last drop of blood. I replaced that with massive damage. However it isn't a fixed number but goes up depending on you hit die. Con+ d6=1, d8=2,...

    Exactly. My preference for Pathfinder over D&D 3.5 comes from their efforts to eradicate the No monster. The Old School approach, anything not forbidden is permitted. Followed by forbid very little. You Malruhn are Old School. So sayth the Dean.

    Primers should be primers, not encyclopedias. I have the same issue with the Vista City game world. A sizable wiki now exists of that game, but a primer for it must need be much shorter.. A game starting there does not need the information I have available, it would bury them. They need to make...

    I always twisted the D&D rule about, "That which is not permitted is forbidden," into, "That which is not permitted is allowed and we'll crunch it out when it occurs."

    I agree with that - "sandbox" scenarios and campaigns can be VERY well written... Something a published writer with whom I am friends just suggested was to consider WHY when writing. Also, if it isn't germane to the plot/idea, don't put it in. Nobody cares if the hero likes the smell of oleander...

    I'd like to join the Adventure Writer's Guild. I may be an inexperienced DM, but I've got enthusiasm and a fertile imagination. I'd like to learn how to better harness those traits to benefit everyone.
  2. Sure....let me come up with a better idea than the one I put up, then.

    Hey Ben... I've been thinking about the adventure writers guild and while i see it as a cool opportunity, there's really only a few motivated people up there. I want to keep pushing to see if we can collaborate as a group, but i would like to put forward may a little side effort between just you and I. Basically same thing, we'll both come up with an side trek idea and then we do your first, and collaborate to finish mine after that. I've never worked collaboratively before and i don't want my first experience, which seems like its gonna be a lot of drawn out online exchanges, to sour me to it. You really got this group started, and you seem really motivated in the adventure writing area... sooooo.... interested in collaborating just between you and I? I understand if not... it means yet another thing to put effort into and family always take priority... but let me know if it may be something you want to do.

Entering Elder Daven

by DM_Running_Farland_3.5 on 04-26-2009 at 12:37 PM
After leaving the sheriff behind in the custody of the village priest, the Ely, Rana and company continued on to Elder Daven.

They nearly fell victim to a strangely clean ogre that was plying the "trade" on the road to Elder Daven.

Heinrich managed to sneak up behind him and attempted to hamstring him but failed. When the ogre finally got the chance to go on the offensive, Heinrich found himself with a 50-pound great axe lodged in his left shoulder.
