Initiative?

Question regarding Initiative: I run an every other Thursday game of BFRPG for about 18 months now. The group varies from 4 to 7 players. I initially was unintentionally running initiative incorrectly, and once I figured that out (about a month ago) I discussed how we were doing it vs by book. How I...

Re: Clownfish TV "recommendation" of Basic Fantasy, and a call to action

Chris, have you thought about doing a video reply on your own youtube channel? Due to the way their algorithms work, it might show up as a recommended video and therefore get more traction as to your desire for BFRPG and it's forums/discussion areas to remain apolitical.

Re: Converting D&D modules

That's what I was going to suggest; unless you have a reason not to, just use the Saves of a Fighter of equal level to the monster's number of Hit Dice. If a monster got a bonus versus some sort of effect, then give them that bonus as well.

Re: Who's bored? How about an online game?

I'd be down, and I'm working from home until 4:30 M-F Central. I've got a friend who'd be interested as well, if there was space. He works the same hours.

Re: Awarding XP for exploration

Instead of using the Gold = XP option, I've started giving the party 100 xp for exploring a new hex, and 50 xp per room in a dungeon, on top of the monster XP. Not bad. This gives a nice low-level bonus while not affecting higher level groups much, since the award does not scale to the character le...

Awarding XP for exploration

I've been running a game using a mash-up of Rappan Athuk (specifically the area around Zelkor's Ferry) and JN1 The Chaotic Caves with some home-brew stuff thrown in there for good measure. One of the issue's I've been having is after having run Castle Calaelen is that at low level the modules are pr...
