Re: Revisiting Dungeons

No, your ideas are right on target. It needs to be a living, breathing world and dungeon. It makes sense that the other goblins saw the mess and decided to do something. Honestly, I have always had a problem with the whole clear a room, walk into the next room and clear another approach to dungeons....

Re: GMing a game for Basic Fantasy

I was a first time GM not too long ago and I can tell you what I had problems with and how I worked through. My three main problems were with remembering "saves," dealing with the cleric's actions of turning monsters, and working through how to deal with actions that were not covered, like special "...

Re: Playing a Werewolf

If I was going to do this, I would simply use one set of stats as a human fighter or whatever and the standard werewolf stats when the PC transformed into a werewolf. However, I would also come up with a random table for every time he transformed. Maybe he could transform at night, on a full moon, o...

Re: The Justification for NOT Using Supplemental Classes

We recently hacked our BFRPG rules/ campaign with Knave RPG which is a classless RPG. Knave is really too simple to be used on it on and, of course, we love BFRPG and it has everything that Knave lacks . . . rules for various situations, spells, bestiary, etc. We were trying to expand and add in the...

Re: [AA3] The Mystery of Drakestein Island

I am really glad to see this module potentially being published/ going in an anthology collection.

My group played through it a while back and we loved it.

Re: 2 Questions

In my group, we just swapped over to using the simple one-side-goes-then-the-other technique and it works quite well. Yes, there is the chance (big chance!) that an enemy can attack two times in a row but that keeps fighting interesting and may lead low level PC's to stay from fighting (which is bet...

Re: New Blog Post: Are Magic-Users Too Weak, Part II

Yeah, I too find that the problem is that some players see a magic user as being a boring PC to play. For me, I let players roll up a PC and if they want to be something specific, I let them add to whatever ability is needed to be what they want . . . they just have to subtract the equal amount of p...

Re: The Dark Temple

I think its awesome that a complete module was put out this quickly. I always love these short compilations. They are so easy to plug into a campaign and so easy to prep for. I didn't get a chance to write out an adventure this year but would love to sometime. I would like to suggest that the next o...

Re: Beginner GM & Players - B4 The Lost City

I started to run some of the older models but instead chose to read through some of them instead (like the Lost City) and just create my own from the bottom up with BFRPG creatures. The best ones are sandbox modules that only require a few things anyways . . . just a few maps, encounter tables, and ...

Re: AA2 Adventure Anthology 2

I just wanted to say that I saw AA2 on Amazon today and the cover is awesome. It is just dripping with old school flavor. Even though I have already downloaded the PDF and rarely use printed material anymore, I will probably pick up a printed copy just because it looks great (and it's good to have s...
