    To make things simpler, I would use the same yard-stick for all actions. The way you have your ranged attacks and tasks right now are two systems - just stick to one: touch = simple short range = moderate medium range = moderate long range = complex Out of range = ridiculous (why have this if...

    Allabar, or some aspect of it, orbits broken and defeated within the nameless vortex between planes of existence.

    The snow started falling at sunset on the longest night of the year. By half-past four, the sky was pitch-dark and traffic out of Morioka was already a mess even though nothing was sticking yet. The trains were still in service, but there's no rail station north of Lake Ogawara these days. ...

    Scorching Burst might eventually cause a cave-in but who knows how long that will take? It may be hours or days. As an area of effect spell, though, it will be much handier at clearing out the massed bugs than Eldritch Blast. Also, now that we've started the player posting period, I'm hoping...

    There might be some suitable boulders of that type down where the kanks are. A one foot diameter roughly spherical limestone boulder weighs about ninety pounds, so it's not getting tossed too far, but it could get dropped into the depths of the room. That will necessitate entering the room. ...

    For the initial tests, the ones whose results are described in the narrative thread, I don't think a floating disk is necessary. Let's hold off on that for a bit longer, until something more extreme is done with more of the meat. As far as picking off the bugs piecemeal goes, if the swarm...

    Speaking for Konstansz on the earlier question of area-of-effect attacks, warlocks tend towards spells that only have single targets. She has used one close range area-of-effect spell in the past: Music of the Spheres, which is a straightforward encounter-frequency spell that causes thunder-based...

    I've heard the topographical map trick. You cna reverse that as well and drop the waterlines. Naming conventions are always good to have. It givce an area flavor. Incidentally in England you can tell the areas that use to be the Danelaw by the town names.

    So far, so good. Cutting off a small piece will take negligible time. The only questions for this stage are who tosses the chunk, where do they toss it, and if they have to enter the room to do it, where's everyone else?

    And for mapping hints: get some topographical maps from the interweb and print them out - go to a place like Office Depot or similar to get big, poster sized ones (should cost less than $5 for one good black and white poster). Then choose an elevation marker - and starting at the existing...

    http://translate.google.com is the bestestest tool out there for exactly the reasons Tesral listed - you type in ONE word (or a series) and you can get about 30 different foreign words for it/them.

    No real single method. Most of my city names are locational. Woodmanor, Seahaven Delta and so forth,. The world Thindacarulle is just Greyhawke in Elven. Google translate is your friend for exotic sounding names that are not. For example the mundane sounding town of Hillside becomes...

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."
