    DMMike replied to a thread [D&D] Keeping it Classy in News
    So, the "paths" from 4E are back? I hope they did a lot of in-house playtesting, because I'm not really seeing choice points; I'm seeing many, many classes.

    Some reflections on my homebrew here: In a melee, or close combat amongst several combatants, you generally have two choices: try to kill the guy next to you, or prevent yourself from being killed. Secondary choices are to protect your buddy from getting killed, or assist your buddy in killing...

    Game's full as of this post. I highly encourage interested persons to swing by anyway and watch. If there's a seat open, you could still get in. Also, I added a dice-rolling note to the Chatroom Conventions post.

    This is a question for modern-genre players who have dabbled in medieval games: What does more damage: a .308 round or a battleaxe? or a more subjective question: How does "damage" from medieval games compare to "damage" from modern games?

    Hmmm...let's weigh in: Setting = Campaign World = where a campaign takes place. Campaign = collection of adventures tied together with a theme. Or a Macguffin. Adventure = a roleplaying introduction, climax, and denouement. Session = one sitting of a roleplaying game. QED

    To add some rhyme and reason to our game, we'll use the following conventions during the game: Marching order: The party will choose a default formation in which to move. This can be whatever you want; a column is most common in dungeons. You must also determine who stands in each position. ...

    Good catch. But I'm sure Malruhn was using the royal "guy." Let's call out some offenders of the mistakes. The latter being (apologies on formatting): 1. Not thinking about basic infrastructure. 2. Not explaining why events are happening now.3) Creating fictional versions of real-life human...

    I wish I could say I'm as selfless as Lazarus and Jpat! Besides membership, the only reward I'm looking for is exposure for my RPG. Otherwise, I'm just happy to help myself and others get their gaming fix. P.S. rewards might go a long way for the PCs. Say, in monthly game contests...

    Thanks a lot, Morashitar! Although you're putting the cart before the horse: I didn't turn Skyrim into a tabletop game. Skyrim turned my game into something really fun! Of course, Skyrim had help from Final Fantasy and D&D too. If you're interested, I'll release the adventure module I'm using...

    These pregens listed will be used in the Con. There's more info on the way for Danica, Farengar, Aia and Mercer. And I'm considering adding some bonus features for Farkas and Aela as well. Farkas's modified Physical is 13, reduced by his heavy armor from 16. This also reduces his physical max...

    Well, if P&PG runs a "rules-light" or "rules-heavy" game contest, we might make some strides toward making their definitions concrete. I really see one of P&PG's strengths as the chatroom. So we should probably be running the "Chat-friendly Adventure" contest.

    Some players will ignore these just as easily as they'll ignore the danger of an iron golem. My current wisdom is to have a backup plan. Go ahead and TPK - if the player's can't recognize an overwhelming challenge, they deserve it - but then either allow the players to "restore last...

    Well, there's already a respectable One Page Dungeon contest, and it seems Soft Serve has found a good 2 Page RPG contest (judging by the response quality of the judges). So what does that leave us? And what systems does P&PG have in place that relate to contests? Polls, obviously. Can the...

    Bravo for taking on the challenge of writing an uber-short RPG! It sounds easy, doesn't it? Yeah, I dread the idea. The uber-short game I'm trying to write is probably getting closer to 100 pages than 50. :(
