Re: looking for players: BFRPG pbp

I'm interested as long as the posting schedule isn't too demanding. I'll be able to post most days but maybe not all.

As for adventure types, I'm good at just having a map to explore. Sandbox style.

Re: No active pbp threads?

So, to be clear, this forum no longer hosts active play by post games, correct? Or else I'm really bad at finding any. It seems that stopped around ten years ago, maybe? I've got a BFRPG game of this type planned for sometime in the near future, and I figured the official boards would be the ideal ...

Re: No active pbp threads?

Yeah, it's not that we don't host PbP games, it's that nobody is running one right now. Start an invite thread, and if you get a satisfactory response PM me a link to the thread and a list of the members you are inviting/accepting, and I'll spin up a new subforum for you. Great. Thank you. This is ...

Re: Amazon KDP Hardcover Books

Nice. Looks like I'm upgrading to one of these for my personal copy and I can gift my softcover to a player sometime.

Re: No active pbp threads?

I posted on FB and got some people for a roll20 game. I'm not sure if that helps or doesn't help. Thanks, but what I'm primarily interested in going forward in my gaming is forum based play-by-post games. Roll20 is a popular platform a lot of people enjoy but it's a little too newfangled for my sen...

Re: High level spells

It hasn't come up yet in any of my BFRPG games. I think the ritual, landmark or Artifact-based casting is definitely the direction I'd personally go, instead of over-powering spellcasters by letting them cast these spells like normal spells, for sure.

Re: Campaign planning

Remember the cardinal rule of campaign prep - they're probably not gonna do what you think they're gonna do, or go where you prepare a notebook full of prep for. Think flexible and think sandbox whenever possible, and don't plan ahead like a chessmaster, and you'll do great. You probably already kno...

Re: creature conversion question

If you're using TSR-era modules, the power levels of the monsters should be about right, and they should actually be printed in the module in most cases without needing a monster book. Just subtract the AC in the monster's stat block from 19 if the module is for OD&D or Basic, or 20 if it's for AD&D...

Re: Combat - Avoidable or not?

This is one reason I give xp for gold and rp as well as defeating monsters. Encourages a slightly different play style. Probably one of the most popular house rules for BFRPG, especially as it's present in the old school rules it emulates. (Some versions, anyway. TSR era D&D was a diverse playing fi...
