I concur. I'd love to read your "campaign journal" if you'd love to share it.

Re: I'm Thankful...

Here's to the past, present and future of BFRPG. To old friends, current friends and the friends we've yet to make. Huzzah! Excelsior!

Re: The future of Iron Falcon?

That's fine, good sir. Take your time. I'm quite sure it'll be worth the wait.

Re: Words to Live (and Play) By

Like most humans, including and perhaps even especially creative types, Mr. Gygax seemed to be made up of contradictions. His view on any given subject varied widely from one source to the next and evolved over the years. AD&D 1e is a fascinating time capsule of his game design and game mastery phil...

Re: Rules Check: Scrolls with long spell casting times

Why not use the optional Bfrpg Ability check? Int modifier plus Dex modifier since what you're attempting utilizes a bit of both.

Re: Question about rules: Prime Requisite

Prime Requisites and how they worked in B/X are an OD&D carry over and a reflection of Gary's personal philosophies on the fiction of the game. The way bfrpg handles it has already been covered with eloquence here by others. It encourages a different mentality and play style and doesn't punish playe...

Re: First Campaign - What monsters to use?

A black bear is actually HD4. It's still only worth 240xp and has no treasure. It's relatively high risk, low reward, all factored in. The OP made it sound as if the reward is from someone who wants a bear dead, so in this specific case choosing to engage with said bear in a life or death situation...

Re: First Campaign - What monsters to use?

There are no challenges too tough for players to (eventually) overcome. It depends on their creativity, planning and resources. A 3hd creature without any special immunities or powers isn't all that out there as a challenge for a low level party. Many classic modules and BFRPG adventures make it pos...

Re: Using Spells as Treasure

Last summer one of the objectives my family group had was to find out what happened to a fellow named Barsi the Warlock who disappeared after going down into a crevice in the canyon looking for a treasure trove. His b...
