Re: Cities for Western Lands Campaign

Hi everyone. I'm new(ish) to Basic Fantasy and might run the Morgansfort book for some players sometime. Is there any available info for the cities (Slateholm, Beth, Ravenstone etc) anywhere? I thought if not I'd base them loosely on cities from other fiction. For instance Ravenstone could be like ...

Re: Cleric Deities? Do we make them up?

I just let players pull whatever favored deity they want in my games and let them be listed as part of the hundred gods. Nothing special such as daily powers or such but mostly just the fluff. You want to be a priest of Pelor, cool. He is part of the hundred gods now.

Re: World Building Tips

I don't post much but just felt like expressing my view. Build what you want, it is your game. If you want to create a large world then go ahead and do it as it is your game. You want to keep focused on a small area starting out and create as the player's explore then go for it. Again this is your g...

Re: Virtual Tabletop Games

I'd be curious to hear what platforms people have tried basic fantasy on. I've been interested in running a VTT game but I've never done it. I was active in PbP games over on Myth Weavers for many years and it was a lot of fun, but that's a slow medium. It took more than five years to get a Pathfin...

Re: Virtual Tabletop Games

What did I miss? The Foundry is a new one. You purchase the program (only the host/GM needs to) and install it on your computer but all the players can use their browser to connect to the game. Downside is the learning curve and the fact you have to do some port forwarding on your home network. BFR...

Re: Powercreep

Take a look at the scout supplement. It is what I use for most ranger type of classes when I do not want spell casting to become part of the class. I usually rename it as rangers or long riders or something similar.

Re: Need help figuring out the Roll20 Character sheets

Your original code is still on the github so just reach out to the roll20 devs and have them replace the current sheet with your code. No hard feelings as it is your game and your right.

Re: Need help figuring out the Roll20 Character sheets

Now you know why it is set up like it is and why it seems to be complex and confusing.
