Ouch. Was that imprint on the windshield from your head?

Positive Review of Basic Fantasy on Drunkens & Dragons

Maybe this has already been posted, but the DM on the Drunkens & Dragons does a "Required Reading" bit once in a while. He kicked off the episode with Basic Fantasy. A positive review from a 5e DM! Anyway, it's a little old, but I'm a little slow on the internets. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgT...

Re: High Level Play

Give your BBEG's abilities to act multiple times per round, and/or, bring in summoned allies, tough henchmen, etc. Part of the challenge for the PCs may be in just getting the Enemy alone! If they go through all the trouble to take down the layers of defenses in order to be ever increasingly tougher...

Re: How would you rule this ?

I would say Yes, but then keep in mind that dinosaurs ought to be very primal and driven by instinct much more than more 'evolved' animals in the world. Like the old cartoon that said 'bears say it with a slap', a dinosaur might violently nuzzle the druid, in a friendly way of course... ;-)

Re: BFRPG games being played online

Just letting everyone know that there is a new BFRPG game recruiting over on rpol.net called the "Cult of Dorjan" being run by a GM called "jorkast". Not sure if he's on this forum or not. It's a brand new game, I don't have time to play in it, but I thought I'd courteously post the announcement her...

Re: OT Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Perhaps the best thing about TFA is that it left you wanting to know more about where all the characters are going. Perhaps the worst thing about TFA is the worry that the next two movies will just go almost exactly where the original trilogy went. Exactly. The formula is solid and will be difficul...

Re: PbP Styles

I spent some time last night reading through Longman's game here, and I got the feeling after a while like I was a silent watcher at their table. The way he and his players describe, in basically real time, what they're doing, what's happening, etc. is much different than the "story" style I prefer,...

Re: PbP Styles

One more thing I meant to touch on... I shy from editing posts as much as possible. Many players either forget, or simply just don't go back and re-read modified posts. Instead, I like to see things resolved and narrated from previous posts while keeping the story inching forward with each new post....

Re: PbP Styles

I had a similar conversation with Delver on his PbP game lately. It's hard to narrate action in combat when you don't know what's going to happen, or how you rolled. Out of combat it's even more tricky, in a way. One person posts an action that lasts 10 seconds and the next person talks about what ...
