    Agreed - the GM must be the proponent of non-combat options. And I think combat should have some negative outcomes too, like killing something means you can't gain information or you garner bad reputation. (Reputation rules, then?) But Western culture is against us: video games, movies, and...

    Okay, how about an app that sets off an alarm anytime a social media app runs? The GM hears this, and knows to dock XP - or add an extra damage point or two to the next attack. :mad:

    Yeah. We want details! I shiver to think of diceless games though. The dice are magical little gems that hold the answers to everything within them. Why pass up such cool, little baubles? One reason to skip them is that most dice rely on numbers, which require mathematical thinking instead...

    Malruhn - good points. Some bad guys are all about death, but let's be real here: the only creatures that don't have an interest in self-preservation are undead, robots, and living things who are guarding something more valuable than life (like their kids). Don't let the thread name fool you, by...

    "(Pacifism) is unrealistic and undoable in a game." Sign of the times, huh? The question, to me, is how does the GM keep things interesting? I've thought about a pacifist Skyrim game, but I'm not sure that it's possible. I feel like half of the quests require the death of a creature, even if...

    I have very bad news: I'm almost done reading a Dance with Dragons. Which means that my only exposure to a medieval setting in which combat is a bad thing will go on hiatus. Have you played in or run a campaign that shuns combat? Have you seen players maintain interest when something less than...

    Hello gamers: I'd like to GM a Lord of the Rings/Game of Thrones style game on a weekly (evening) basis. Day of the week is pretty flexible - depends on what the group needs. Also, I'll be using a learn-as-you-play style to teach the game system, which is pretty easy. The game is very...

    Spell cards: I wouldn't use them. I'd just use my character sheet. Playing cards: to me, these have a pretty heavy wild-west flavor. Which would be great in a wild-west game, but not in other games. Maybe I should just focus on the "kings," "queens," and Alice in Wonderland... More cards...

    As one of my favorite parts of the game, modules need to be done right. Iíve cut a lot of subjective material from the modules chapter, and Iím hoping that whatís left is short and sweet. Each sample module is getting a makeover, and the rules module is complete, although I canít code the...

    Welcome, fellow 'Zonie! This site has a chatroom that's great for online games, and the best way to get involved in the forums is to start a thread. I'm designing a game as well, and I'm a recovering 3.5 addict so if you want to bounce any ideas off me just say so!
