Re: [TSGS] The Simple Game System, 2nd Edition

This looks NEATO! I really like the whole concept! I have a question about the die rolling examples though. I'm not sure iif I'm just dense or what. John and Barney decide to arm-wrestle. This is obviously a contest of strength, and both men are Strong, so each rolls three dice: John: 5 1 1= 1 Barne...

Re: The Stone Lord

I am confused by the chart on page 20. The text right above it says "No hazardous locale will be chosen by the portal in a random transport."
yet the table contains two lethal options in it.

Re: Basic Fantasy Field Guide 2

oh, sorry. Yes, I agree completely. I was wondering though, is there a difference between serpents and snakes? otherwise, I would think they should be grouped together somehow. Unless of course, they are like frogs and toads... similar but distinct species. and one other: Dragon, "Drax'xion, the Fir...

Re: Basic Fantasy Field Guide 2

Actually, I would think "Lion Fish" would be under "Fish, Lion". unless it's actually the name of something that's not a fish, like Owlbear, for instance.

Re: Beginner's Essentials

Since the BE is supposed to be for beginners, I think at least referencing the relevant page would be good. Experienced gamers would likely assume "attack" means more than just "hit with a weapon" but not new gamers. That's just an opinion from teaching the game to my computer programming students.

Re: Basic Fantasy Player's App

after looking over the suggestions in the multiclass thread, I decided to just make the "multiclass" options as single classes, RAW. For app purposes, I just calculated the experience and made separate progression arrays for them, rather than try to combine them programmatically. so, the app won't b...

Re: Basic Fantasy Player's App

where exactly is it crashing? the app uses activities simply because it is a student project and that is what they knew. fragments came later in the semester. so, once it works, subsequent students will re-tool it. it is for that reason that the data is all singletons. not very efficient, but unders...

I haven't seen that, but I am familiar with his animated Lord of the Rings.
This one is MUCH weirder. It was done a couple years earlier.
AND, the reason he did it was to, in his words "make a family-friendly film". :roll:

Re: Basic Fantasy Player's App

So it's been awhile since I made an update to this. this year I am emphasizing HTML and mySQL so not a lot of work has been done. also, my recovery from last summer's successful Save vs. Death tok longer than I thought. I'm gonna put an .apk file in the github repository for people to try out if the...
