Re: Secondary Skills Supplement

(FYI: I just noticed there was an r2 for this supplement. The downloads page only lists v1.) Does a starting character start at level 1 for every skill within the General skills list and their specific class list, or is there a set number of skill levels awarded at first level? It looks to be the fo...

Re: [AA4] The Fortress of Fire

A tiny point, but wouldn't it be useful to put the location names Sarada and Coebo onto the map?

Components for Spells and such?

Just to confirm, I've looked through the core rules and various supplements and I couldn't find any requirement for or even mention of spell components for spells. Is this correct or did I just not see it? If not, what are peoples' opinions on this? Needless complication? Great idea? Boring drudgery...

Spell scroll creation - not worth doing?

A few observations and questions about spell scroll creation, specifically regarding the cost and difficulty. According to the Magical Research chapter in the core rules, crafting a scroll costs 500 gp per spell level for a magic item which is consumed upon use, and has a chance of failure during cr...

Re: Galactic Encounters Role-Playing Game

On future Currency: (Take two! I had it all written out and my log in timed out. I lost the whole %$^%$#^@ thing!) As Solo and others pointed out, using current currency methods won't work well in a post-scarcity, galactic scale future. Resources are too plentiful and computing is too advanced to us...

Re: Galactic Encounters Role-Playing Game

Love those ideas Spiralbound! Thanks for resurrecting the thread!! You're welcome. There are so many good ideas in this thread, I didn't want it to die. I also have thoughts on currency which I'll be posting later today. I was thinking about this the other day. What if our solar system ends up bein...

Re: Beginner's Essentials

Nope, not me. I am either "Spiralbound" or "Adam Bragg" everywhere online. I was recommended BFRPG by "Falk Ruch" on MeWe.com after "Samwise Seven RPG" posted about how BFRPG was his favourite free RPG. I do intend on posting in this forum once I do run a game...

Re: Galactic Encounters Role-Playing Game

On FTL: Why not offer 2-3 methods for the GM to choose from? After all, the intent is for the Core Rules to NOT imply a setting as was the case with BFRPG. The LACK of an implied setting was one of the major attractants for me and I'd like to see the same for the science fiction version. As for whic...

Re: Beginner's Essentials

Excellent! Thanks for the speedy reply. I'm still learning the ins and out of this system in comparison to AD&D 2E or even other retroclones. I really like the modular approach to the system, allowing me to easily customise my own sweet spot of features by adding or excluding certain rules for a...

Re: Beginner's Essentials

A simple question, is the Beginners Essentials current with the core rules, 3rd Edition, release 107? I'm looking to start a campaign with a group who've never played this game and was considering giving them the Beginners Essentials to reference at the table to get them going instead of hitting the...
