Re: Question about items/potions

First time a character has to test a potion - fun. Tenth time - getting a bit dull now? I like to have some potions clearly labelled. Wizard potions designed for use in tight situations might have "Invisibility" engraved on the bottle in Old Archaic, or a particular religion's Clerical healing potio...

The Ballyman Awaits

Why not U.S. Amazon? To not be available via that or even Kindle is fairly inconvenient TBH. I understand if you gotta play by your publisher's rules, but it's strange to be available via Amazon in one country and not another... It seems you can get it US Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Ballyman-Wai...

Re: Any tips for overland travel gameplay?

I've had some success in various games using an exploration point system. For BF, the slowest party move rate was 30, meaning a possible maximum of 18 miles a day on normal terrain. Each hex was 3x3 miles. The party got 6 exploration points a day, each representing about 2 hours of activity, meaning...

Re: A Comment on the "Companion"/Advanced Question

And how can we help players and GMs organize all these adds for ease of access in campaigns? I'd frame the question as "how do we encourage new players and GMs to think about what kind of supplements they want to use, before they go looking?" It's tricky because there is no accounting for taste and...

Re: Base Camp (Chit Chat)

Well, it's been over a week since last post and over a month since mTeasdale was here. This game has slowed to a crawl, even when he was posting... I think it's time to call it quits. Just seems like it's too hard to keep one of these PbP things going, and I'm increasingly pre-occupied with fiction ...

Re: Chapter 5: All Aboard the Ark-Ari

The spell is cast. You can't see the orcs as they are sorrounded in darkness, but you can hear quite a lot of shouting. A leader type orc tries to calm things down but some of the orcs seem to have scatterred and are moving around in the area of darkness. You hear a few fall over. YC also climbs up ...

Re: Chapter 5: All Aboard the Ark-Ari

orc ledge.png The ledge is 60 feet wide and 200 in length, slightly out of scale here but you get the idea. Sorry Maju but you can't exactly cast the spell to totally split the ledge because the mermaid and her sole guard sole are right behind the main group of orcs, about 60 back. For the same rea...
