Re: My Wife and I are starting a game

So this escalated to an online game on roll20 with my Wife, one of my best friends and his wife, and two more of my best friends who are brothers.

Re: Saving Throws Question

Nice link, I came here to post something I was brewing up that's actually very similar to that link. I want to switch to just using ability rolls in BFRPG and ditch saving throws all together. Ability rolls will always be modified by your characters stat modifier. plus modified for race and class as...

Re: Basic Fantasy RPG Core Rules 3rd Edition

I am 50/50 on the Cleric turning undead table using the specific creatures rather than HD; if it's showing all from the core book, then I don't mind it. But for any creatures from supplements, home-brew, etc. then we're gonna scratch our heads a bit to figure out their values. I was also first on t...

I thought it would be fun to post info and updates here, at least fun for me, if it gets annoying let me know and I will stop :) So first of all h...
