Re: Basic Fantasy RPG Core Rules 3rd Edition

Divide the normal overland travel rate by 3, and add it again to the normal overland travel rate.
1+1/3 = 4/3
It means that they should travel faster on a road, than they would through an open field.

Re: Question about turns.

Yeah. I interpret turn as an abstract measurement of time equal to roughly 10 minutes, that also saves us from typing out X*10 minutes every time. I usually don't worry about things down to the minute. Player A says they want to search one wall, Player B wants to search a different wall, then they s...

Re: Regarding Monster Abilities and Attacks.

Like, the Harpy i.e. Her attack reads "2 claws/1 weapon + special". That means that every attack she does she casts her special ability, or i choose between her attack routine OR the special ability as her attack action for the turn? Thanks in advance! A harpy is able to sing while she attacks. The...

Re: Movement Rates clarifications

It seems like you're correct, but maybe overthinking a little. The standard movement rate is expressed in feet per round (40' unencumbered). If they are running, then it is 80' per round. This would give 120' per 10 minute turn while exploring. The scale of the squares depends on the map, but for mo...

Re: AA2 Adventure Anthology 2

I noticed that many of the modules in the showcase are also in here. Should I submit corrections here, or to those modules? If here, then is there a reason to still have those modules there?

Re: Called Shots

I think the rules given in Combat Options are perfectly acceptable, and are usually my default. If something seems like it should definitely be easier or harder to hit (an eye for instance) then I usually use the same rules as cover and concealment i.e. a percentile miss chance (which I can choose t...

Re: Dungeoneer Upgrade Plans

BTW, though I just love "The Luggage" from the Discword books I usually avoid using it as a fake chest. You should check out the magical item compendium in the workshop. I tried to replicate The Luggage, and made a stat block for it, although I did not include the ability to swallow creatures. Back...
