    Mr. Al Gore - THANK YOU for inventing the internet. Stupidly simple problems have been vexing me, and because of your invention, people on the other side of the country have been able to lend their assistance! Okay, from Word, I was able to export my Primer as a .pdf - and went from 40mb in a...

    Yeah, Adobe starts at $299... I'll pass on that because I'm cheap.

    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...

    Which is why I'm putting it all down on (e) paper. My Primer is in final edit stage, soon to be playtested, and my full phreaking TOME of the Known World is about 90% complete for the rough draft. After forcing myself to make 10-12 page descriptions fit into a one-column/half-page note, I've found...

    Good point. I concede to your wisdom - and sorry about the attempted hijacking.

    Malruhn replied to a thread [DM / Player Tools] It's the Law in Campaign Resources
    In my campaign world, each nation has their own laws. Some places are quite similar to others... and there are those that are WAY out there. I have them codified, and if players are smart, they can speak to the first guards they meet about the easiest ways to be thrown in prison or executed. I'm...

    I disagree, Tes. I think we were endangered when the first modules were printed, but enough of us out there LIKE to wing it that we aren't that endangered. Or at least that's the reality that I'm clinging to...

    Malruhn replied to a thread Why Fantasy? in Fantasy Discussion
    I'll toss my ten cents in (because my two cents are free), and I apologize in advance, because I may piss some folks off. Playing games is a time sink - a total waste of time. This leads me to genre. I can envision myself in EVERY other genre out there: I can see myself with a hat and six-guns...

    Oh. My. FLYING UNICORNS!!! The amount of butthurt is AMAZING for this - both in and out of game!! We have a player that recently was caught fudging dice rolls - he was a 4th level thief doing upwards of 60 points of damage on a sneak attack - even when he rolled 1's and 2's on his dice. When...

    Where does robbery come in? You know - whip out a knife and threaten to stick someone unless they hand over the goodies? It isn't officially "theft" by the definitions above, and it might be under some others, I'm just curious.

    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...

What are you looking for?:
I and my fiance (who is my only means of transportation) are looking for a Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 game preferably, but are open to trying just about any RPG as long as the group is willing to deal with noobs. Someplace close to Johnson State College would be great (on campus would be mind-blowingly awesome), but we're willing to go as far as Burlington (estimated at around 50mi / one hour away) once a week. (If the group is closer then we might be able to play more often.)
About Me
Biography:
I've really only played D&D 3.5 and 4e. I think that 3.5 is as perfect as it's going to get for me, mostly because I like to play with level adjustments and the massive amount of personalization available, but also because I've absorbed most of the rules as a part of my very being at this point. (Though I try not to be a rules lawyer.) I'd like to play as often as possible, I'm completely addicted, but all of my friends who I used to play with have wandered off while I wasn't paying attention and now I find myself suffering from withdrawals. I suppose I could be described as a power gamer or something like that, in that I like to make the most all around powerful character that I can while sticking to the rules. I have one or two non-marshal characters who could easily take out a monster of a CR equal to their level, providing that they get the first hit. I also like to mess with the DM's head and do things that they might not have expected of a PC. Well, I guess this has gotten kind of long, so...
