    tesral replied to a thread [Gear (General)] Deceptively useless Magical "Artifacts" in Campaign Resources
    Some "cursed" items I see as misused. The necklace of strangulation for example. It's an assassination tool, not a cursed item. It does exactly what it is meant to do.

    Yes, this is just a best-of test. Concerning Noxias's rolls, I'm using the Dungeoneering because it was tagged as such. The others were also specified, so they go to their various categories whether those are used or not. I have already taken the Arcana Check into consideration, since it's not...

    Okay, I'll put a ToC up as soon as I can get to it. Now for tech questions: 1. I use GiMP to edit pics - which leaves them HOLY CARP big in size. Even when I export them into .png files, they are still usually 12+mb in size. Is there a better way to do this? 2. I use CutePDFWriter to "print"...

    Tes, are you looking for a "Table of Contents" type outline, or something more? I can do either/both, but will need more specific request/directions for the "more" stuff. Oh, and I will NEVER do a dump - once finished, it becomes public domain. I have WAY too much plagiarized stuff in there to...

    I'm not sure which of the two pieces of rope Rogur grabs, or whether he chooses a new 50' length of rope. However, I'll assume the rope he goes with is long enough for the stated effect in the narrative thread.

    There is a point, deep in the mists, where Rogur finds himself walking next to a rope lying on the ground. The rope, and the ground, seems to move closer to him or further away from the side depending upon whether he walks forward or backward, behaving like some reflection in an angled mirror. ...

    The roll many pick one is an Iron Claw mechanic. You skill/ability is based on the dice and type you get to roll from d4 to d12 and the number of dices, some times of mixed types.

Honestly I'm looking for just about any game, any system (I love learning new ones), any mix of combat and RP.

About Me
Biography:
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.

Signature


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."
