    Centuries ago, a megalithic temple dedicated to Orcus, the Demon Prince of the Undead, lay on the site that is now Cafeld's graveyard. Eventually, unable to bear with their abominable practices, neighboring tribes attacked the temple and slaughtered its priests. Mindful of the possibility that...

    Derim is indeed a good climber, yes, but climbing checks are derived from Athletics, which is a function of Strength. Derim's ability in this area comes from his strength, his ancestry (+2 to Athletics), and his general training in feats of strength (trained in Athletics). He would be a...

    I had a general idea for a quest inside this adventure, but since I haven't shared it with you yet, if you want to forgo the quest and take your two fifth level spells immediately, you may do so. Let me know what you choose. This choice applies to Yrisz and Konstansz, too. People who don't...

    You are now talking system. Most game systems avoid one hit one kill because it goes through PCs too fast. It lacks that Heroic feel. Personally I would keep the damage similar. For myself I generally give bullet 2dX. From Colt .25 autos at 2d4 to the .45 ACP at 2d10. Pistols are graded...

    I use it for all eras. And no not usually weapons. You are expected to have gotten weapons. It is for the flashlight, torches, tent spikes, food, coil of rope, and the other things people usually forget to list. Now you can have an assault rifle and a pack of ammo, but don't ask for a wound...

What are you looking for?:
Honestly I'm looking for just about any game, any system (I love learning new ones), any mix of combat and RP.
As a GM i tend to alternate between RP and Combat heavy campaigns. I'm also extremely capable and willing to teach new systems to players. Only requirement I have for players is that you're available MOST of the time when we're going to meet.
About Me
Well I'm in the Air Force stationed in Montgomery Alabama, and I've been playing RPGs and Wargames since I could roll dice. Oh jeez, name a system I've probably played it or at least read a bit about it. I started on D&D back in the day, then expanded to other d20 games, primarily Star Wars and then eventually really fell in love with RPGs when I discovered Spycraft. I started wargaming with Warhammer Fantasy years ago. I now have a WH40K Eldar army needing assembled, and the fifth edition book needing to be read :P I presently own every 4E D&D book, though I've fallen a tad behind on Star Wars Saga. In part because of my love of wargames and minis games, I like the direction D&D and Star Wars and Spycraft and whatnot are going, and because of my love of super nuanced rule heavy games like Aces & Eights, I tend to avoid rules-lite RPGs.


Fighter: "I can kill a guy in one turn."
Cleric: "I can kill a guy in half a turn."
Wizard: "I can kill a guy before my turn."
Bard: "I can get three idiots to kill guys for me."
