Re: Large Unit Engagements/Tactical Combat a la Squad Leader

There are a few relevant things buried around here somewhere... A search for "mass combat", or "domain rules" might prove fruitful. I also recommend checking out either S&W's mass combat rules, or By This Poleaxe which is either free, or really cheap (it's been a few years since I got my hands on it...

Re: New Class Idea: The Engineer

The Tech class from Engines and Empires might be helpful here. In the modern world, engineers are highly specialized. Historically, the kind of thing you’re talking about (Inventing gadgets, and developing new technology) would be done by craftsmen, who were also highly specialized (though to what e...

Re: Overland Travel Movement Rates

I'm assuming you're using a map with a one mile square grid. Assume your players have 24 movement points. Plain squares cost 2 points to cross, (12 miles per day) Forest squares cost 3 points (8 miles per day), Mountain squares cost 6 points (4 miles per day). This should work assuming there aren't ...

Re: Questions regarding identifying and selling magic items

For setting magic item prices there is a supplement in the showcase called The Magic Shoppe. It gives good guidelines about determining worth of an item with the assumption that the goods will not be sold for cash, but may be used to barter/trade for favors, ransoms, or other items. As for identifyi...

Re: Magic-User Cantrips

I generally like your new cantrips, but they do seem a little strong. At one point I modified and added a few cantrips to my house rule set, but they seem to have been lost to time (or at least until I get back to my desktop in the states). I do remember a few things though. First I made it so all n...

Vertical does not have the return button but if the phone is rotated to horizontal it does.
Ah-ha! That does change it!

Apple App-Less Dice Roller

I made a quirky little die roller using Apple Shortcuts, on my phone. You can check it out here: https://www.icloud.com/shortcuts/efb09b3cea9448f8be2c2a2e842115c3 When you run this shortcut it will prompt you to enter a die formula. Formulas must be in the form "X,Y,Z" which is equivalent to XdY+Z. ...

Re: Forums on mobile devices

Would the theme apply to all devices I use? I use both my computer, and my phone to read stuff, so ideally it would only apply when I use my phone. Otherwise, I can switch between them as I need it, but I'll probably just keep the default layout.

Forums on mobile devices

Something I noticed a while back, but never got around to bringing up: When I view a thread on my laptop at the bottom of the page above "Who's Online?" there is a little button that says "Return to '[Board Name].'" When I view a thread on my phone, this little button is not there. I'm not sure if i...

Small Party Adventure Modules

With the exception of a short lived home brew campaign I don't think I've run a game for more than 3 people in Years . My group of prospective players is rather large, but with constantly changing schedules, inconveniently large distances, transportation issues, and unreliable internet connections, ...
