Re: New to Basic Fantasy

First thing is to remember that BFRPG and other OSR systems are more lethal than 5e. Stress to your players that running away from an encounter or avoiding the encounter is a totally valid action to do. If they do choose to go into combat, they need to be sure to weight the odds to their favor such ...

Combat Options does have Two Weapon Combat. I loathe the words "dual wield."
I just woke up shortly before seeing the post and drew a blank on the actual title of the section.

Re: Here we go, 1st session with Morgansfort...any advice?

good call and I didnt do it but I know we've already made up a couple new rules ( dual wield, starting stats, etc ) that I know I've forgotten :( I'll make sure to note them next time. Take a look at the various supplements to either find a rule or get an idea of what to aim for. I believe the comb...

Re: Question on monsters damage

Most monsters with natural attacks like the claw and bite will focus on one character. If it might attack multiple characters it would probably be mentioned in the monster's description. It is usually left to the GM's decision about how and who the monster attacks but just be consistent in that deci...

Re: Started building an online Character Creator for BFRPG

For now keeping it for first level characters is perfectly fine. If you were going to track it in a database there are few fields to deal with. AB Saves Thief skills Turn undead Spell slots Those are the ones that tend to change the most during leveling in a static manner. Hit points should be left ...

Re: Started building an online Character Creator for BFRPG

Slight typo when you are looking at the human race. The special description says +1-% but I think you were meaning +10%. Suggestions: When you run through the process and after you click the next button in the class page, it takes you to a blank page with the character sheet button in the top left s...

Re: Started building an online Character Creator for BFRPG

Suggestion. Combine the 3 dice rolled window into just one (the result) and build 5 more of windows. This will let people roll a stat array with one button then assign them as they want.

Re: A level 1 dwarf or halfling fighter has a219 save against spells, is that right?!

(hopefully I'm interpreting the rules correctly) Saving throw bonus(es) are added to the resulting roll, not to the to-be-beaten value. The number on the table is what needs to be rolled at or higher for the save to succeed, ie a high number on the chart means less chance of success. That's why the...
