Re: Saving Throws

Thank you for the extra ideas concerning intelligence and wisdom scores for magic-users and clerics. I don't like the idea of dumping charisma, but I also want players to be able to have skills somewhat oriented toward the class they want to play. I actually misspoke, I meant to say, "...to be able ...

Re: Saving Throws

Thank you guys for the input! I'll tell you the same thing I tell everyone... play the game as written first. Don't even use supplements (you can always add them later).

Re: Saving Throws

Thanks for the feedback guys! mTeasdale: I read your saving throw supplement and liked it. I was impressed with your three saving throw value system and found it to be much more logical and less arbitrary than the five value saving throw system. I also like that it incorporated ability modifiers in ...

Saving Throws

Greetings. This is my first post. I have enjoyed reading the BF RPG rules and number of the supplementary materials. My first experience and good memory of role-playing was with D&D first edition long ago. I believe I played it once or twice. I then had the opportunity to play and enjoy AD&D first e...
