Re: Adventures with plots

I've found the solution is to give players lots of hooks to choose from and to learn how to ad lib sufficiently well to manage it.

Re: Adventures with plots

I think plot is the DMs job, to a certain point, but then it becomes the group's job once play starts. For example, I had a pretty straightforward plot figured out for the first quest (players are hired to find a flying pig). Goblins have pig but would rather eat their own "cattle" but something is ...

Re: Adventures with plots

Too often it requires the GM to strong arm the players into doing what they wouldn't otherwise think to do, which really hurts the suspension of disbelief necessary for the players to lose themselves in the game. Hah, no kidding. I've got a player who's unhappy with the other players because they d...

Re: BFRPG games being played online

Teluria has been running for 2 years, most of those on Roll20. We're on hiatus right now because of some scheduling problems (GMs been sick) but plan on starting up again soon. We are now playing two threads, the main plot line and a dungeon crawl game in the northern lands which involves a business...

Re: Adventures with plots

I haven't been on here in a long while (health issues etc), but this topic raised some interesting questions since I'm working on my first module for publication. As a GM, I almost always run my own material, so I have a lot of experience writing adventures. I've stolen (err...borrowed) ideas from m...

Re: Online game? - Maptool, Skype

I've been running a game on Roll20 for the last 2 years. If you're interested in an initiative macro that I've set up and any of the other things I've found to be helpful, please PM me and I"ll be glad to share what I've learned.

Re: Game Culture

What I strive for is for my game to be "crispy", with just enough rules to resolve disputes without causing any.

Re: Clerics

In Teluria, I only have two dieties: He Who watches and He Who Waits. P'thun the Judgemental is a giant Cyclops who watches through the two holes in the sky. Once every month the night hole is closed, which is a night of revelry. C'thule is monster woth tentacles for legs who waits for the world's e...

Re: Game Culture

I know I am not the only person here who thinks people coming to BFRPG from modern gaming should try it first as is without the add-ons. Get a feel for how the game can be played without the bells and whistles. Then add back in the bells and whistles that you feel you must have to meet what you wan...

Re: Teluria- The Story So Far

The party found a room in the back of the inn and discussed Harl’s plight. “Of all the dwarves in the land, we had to wind up with the one with a smart mouth!” Kalixta growled, baring her stubby canines at the thought. “Smart mouth, or not, we need to rescue him before we can leave town.” Pug replie...
