    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...

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."
