Re: OPED article "Orc Holocaust" by Erik Sofge

... the main method of getting XP was GP. I.E Treasure.

The implications on gameplay are rather different.

Re: GM's - how often to you "cheat?"

I will cheat and fudge - judiciously- to make a cool game. I am not out to get my players, but to challenge them.

But in practise, they try it, and discard it for something simple with a higher rate of fire, like a sling. It's easy to c...

Egads, what IS with that Sticks to Snakes spell?
It's a fine spell as is. Tastes simply vary.

I like the ritual provisions. I think it's ACKS that extends the range of effect and duration of spells cast ritually, which is cool.

Re: would you join this group?

Yeah, I'd play with Zak and Stoya and the rest. They seem to have really good games. Casual nudity is a bonus.

Re: Clerics

MIght be my favorite class. They get pretty diverse, depending on pantheons and belief systems in play. I like settings with multiple gods and pluralistic conceptions of reality.

Re: RPG books to give away

Just want to say I'm impressed by your generosity chiisu81.

I'm in Canada, mailing anything here would be silly money. But thanks for doing this.

Re: Seriously basic magic user question(s)

That's called free casting or open casting or open slots and is a fairly common variant in these kind of games. My game has free casting. It makes the casters much more flexible and relatively more powerful at lower levels. However, it may be more challenging at first to DM a group that has a lot of...

Re: Saving Throw Options Supplement: interested in me doing it?

+1. It's a good idea. I have players from other editions/games and they might like it.
