Re: Question from an aspiring DM

Hi Guzzer, This is Chris, the author of The Fey Sisters' Fate . Thanks for buying the module, and for entering the exhilarating world of being a GM. The Goodman Games community has presented many solutions to scaling down the Goodman Games 5E modules. We do regret not having a "scaling the adventure...

Re: Raiders of The Lost Oasis question.

Hi Alex Thanks for your question! I'm the author of RotLO. If the PCs disarm the trap, it stands to reason that they will jam the pivoting floor in place. Then they can use controlled actions to either collapse the wall safely, or tilt the floor enough to access the oiled slide under the now jammed ...

Re: Into the Dragon's Maw

Jace Wonderful report. The fact is even almost a year into 5e, folks are not experienced with high level 5e play. My payers had similar issues. Too many options and not familiar with all the nuances with the rules. And they held back with the big guns too. They were convinced the coatl was allied wi...

Re: Into the Dragon's Maw

Yes, homebrew all the way. I'm a big fan of armadillos, plus they fit the xulmec (aztec) theme of the adventure setting.

Re: Into the Dragon's Maw

They were indeed the Pregens used for the playtest (except for the arcane trickster: we only had 5 players). Magic items were selected by the author and tweaked by the players. I apologize for minor errors and not fully fleshing them out regarding backstory, portraits, etc. But they are free, and we...

But then again my players all have 30+ years experience playing rpgs, so it was expected. I had to make several adjustments. The pre-gens will be...

Re: 5E modules set in Aereth?

My first 5E module did not have any ties to Aereth. But the second one most certainly does. Just look at the title. Not to mention the cool backstory that ties into a 3E DCC module near and dear to many.... That being said, one of the design goals was to make sure it could be dropped into another ca...

Kickstarter Plug

Hi all,

I don't normally do this, but IMO its an excellent game:

Its a trick taking (like Hearts) card game with a dungeon crawl feel (different PCs, beat up the monsters).

Thank you!

Re: DM/1-player session: adventure advice

Ogrepuppy, You could use DCC#0 Legends are made not born. It was designed for 6 apprentice level (0 level) PCs, but with further tweaking, you might be able to make it work for a wizard and his bodyguard. The old module N1, Treasure Hunt, also might work, but it has a very specific set up, and was d...

I hope your gang is enjoyi...

Re: Posting Castle Whiterock Conversions to Pathfinder

Well, I did write the upper levels, and yes, IIR, those attributes were to be applied to all of the orcs to give them a slightly different feel. There is a good chance the "stats" editor (who didn't read the text on the orcs, I imagine) caught the change in the regular orcs and switched it back to t...

Kerapatis (great name by the way),

Glad to hear your group "loved" Forgotten Portal. Share some details when you get a chance. I'd enjoy reading how your group dealt with the challenges, especially the Nine Tests. It was not easy designing challenges in 4E that were not just combats.

Thanks!

OK, time for the other author to chime in. Same thoughts as Jeng., its up to Mr. Goodman if you can post it here. But I would be most interested as well. I've been running a few levels on and off using PF, and I would enjoy seeing compiled conversion notes as well.

Andy,

Nobody expressed an interest in my unofficial 3.5 tourney, so I don't plan to run any slots. Bummer, since the one rounder was written, and playtested (twice). One of the groups was the GG East gang of freelancers and he had a real blast.
