Re: How to change username ?

I think the most likely reason users are not allowed to change their own name is so that no one can pretend to be someone else and post in their name...

Message me with what you want it changed to, and I'll get it set up.

Re: Variant Rules: Skill Dice by Occupation - Chart

My preference is to ditch pluses and minuses wherever possible and leave it to the dice of the Three Fates to decide. Anywhere in the rules where it says -2 to hit (for instance firing into combat) I would rather step down the dice chain. And vice versa for +2 to hit. Same here. The Dice Chain is a...

Re: Variant Rules: Skill Dice by Occupation - Chart

Is P the letter for Cleric?? Yeah, sorry. When I was typing up the list I had in mind "Priest" rather than "Cleric". I think at one point I actually had "C" instead of "P" and convinced myself it was the other way around. At first, I was pitched into thinking...

I don't know if Bruce Cunnington is on the boards here or not -- so many screen names, so unable to tell who is behind them... But I'm guessing that game is sold out. Looks like the ticket system for Dragonmeet is only showing games that still have spaces available, hence some of them have 1 ticket ...

Re: funnel for beginners

For folks completely new to RPGs, I recommend Hole in the Sky, which has a strong 'dark fairy tale' vibe to it, which almost anyone can relate to... It's not particularly dependent on RPG tropes, and has a mission embedded in it other than "let's go get treasure" which many players latch o...

Re: Elves of the fairy tradition or "normal" rpg elves ?

Page 21 has your Demi-Human abilities for the Funnel. The Funnel is an abstraction of the full game for ease of play, and the iron allergy is not an issue in the funnel. Choosing Mithril equipment comes later.

Re: Patron Bond

Patron spells are not spells that work the same was as magic the character has researched and created themselves. Patron spells are dependent upon the Patron lending aid in the moment -- they are being invoked , after all. Hence there is a limit and there is a debt that goes with 'casting' such spel...

Re: Earn Luck points

For me, characters can't get a score in anything higher than an 18 without extreme or supernatural intervention. This is precisely the point I wanted to make, so you decide to "block" the chance scores at 18 ? I just consider that to be the "normal range" for player characters, ...

Re: Earn Luck points

For me, characters can't get a score in anything higher than an 18 without extreme or supernatural intervention. The chart runs from 3 to 18 and that's the range of natural scores. Halflings and Thieves with a score of 18 is fine, if it happens. But gaining Luck for an adventure adds to *current* Lu...
