Kalamazoo, MI - Free RPG Day Event: FanFare SPECIAL GUESTS

Really? You made a luck check by 5?? Well, ok. So you stand amongst the smoldering rubble of the hillside, dead companions strewn about you. Once this was a semi-peaceful fiefdom, found dotted along this coast of what you are now told is the “world” of Aereth. Damned void-men. You try desperately no...

Re: Halflings and Luck

So long as you're intending that those with a high Luck will be getting an even easier deal by getting the benefit of their modifier, and those with a really low Luck will be getting penalized by their low modifier, all is well. Generally, I'd think (for example) that someone needing a 5 or less to...

Re: spellburn & patrons

I think it is setup correctly, how patrons are basically an evil, malevolent, or insidious source of black magic. As the magic is decribed, there are many kind of magic, most are like this. It does touch upon a fairer kind of magic, but I think those are usually independent hedge wizards that are lo...

Re: Halflings and Luck

The way I always took this class ability is that it has 2 parts, it has only come up a couple times in my games. 1. Making an actual luck check, he doubles his modifier or any special/situational modifier for rolling under his luck. (eg potential -4 for a +2 bonus situational modifier) 2. For luck b...

Re: Weapons do D6/2D6

Just stumbled upon this thread. I was actually kicking around a similar concept, but it kind of diverges from the classic game feel and embraces more of the dice chain. I was going through a couple of old weapons books put out long ago, and used to love the variety of weapons back in the day. So, my...

Depending on the skill, I give a nat 20 an auto success. If it's a strength based skill for instance, like rope use or hauling someone up a rope - I give it to them and say "you tapped your inner strength" or "you used muscles you never knew you had", etc. If it is a specific high DC to beat an puzz...
