Magic Bow + Normal Arrow vs. Wight

A simple question that has arisen in the Marketstone PbP game ...

Can a wight, which can only be harmed by silver or magical weapons, be injured by a normal arrow fired from a magical bow (e.g. a short bow +1)?

Re: OT: Solomoriah's WAR! BBS Game

So, err ... have I won?

The Victory Conditions in the game manual say that "Whoever first controls 28 cities wins the game".

I now have 28 cities, but the game seems to be carrying on as normal :? .

The Storehouse

With a unique (and very secure) stone-made and pyramid-shaped roof, stone walls and a single brass-bound door, Apple Lane's Storehouse is said to have never been robbed. It sits on South Street, next door to Gringle's Pawnshop and opposite the Tin Inn. Within it are tools, foodstuffs, liquor, seeds,...

GM Note

Really, from this point forward, this is a very player-driven adventure - almost sandbox-like. There is no specific right or wrong way to tackle the problem. It's a case of devising a plan and implementing it. So, I'll be here to help you with any questions you may have, as well as to determine the...

Northern Orchards

"Sheriff, how do we get to the cave?" "Just head up to the Northern Orchards. If you then carry on a bit further north, you'll reach a craggy ridge. That's where you'll find the cave." "Anything else?" [ OOC: as locals (more or less) your characters are well aware of h...

A Menace and a Pest

Marcus' enthusiasm is dampened. Still, he welcomes the chance to be doing something else. "Um, a bear is it? I hope we don't have to harm it." It's hard to tell whether he's more concerned for the bear or himself. "Well, I very much doubt it's going to leave if you just ask it nicely...

Bear Problem

Dronlan chuckles. “Woah, just hang on there one moment, you don’t even know what I’m going to ask yet! Listen to what I have to say before making any hasty decisions ...” “It seems we have a bear problem up in the Northern Orchards. According to reports, a particularly bad-tempered and aggressive be...

A Little Job

Almost half a year has passed since you faced-off against each other in the circle on the public grazing ground and, if truth be told, adulthood has turned out to be something of a disappointment. So far it has been light on excitement and adventure, and high on sheer hard work. Never more so than d...

Playtest 2 - The Hunt

For the second playtest we are going to use a simple scenario hook from the classic Runequest sandbox campaign, "Griffin Mountain". Griffin Mountain, which was released in 1981, describes two regions, Balazar and the Elder Wilds, that are both a long way to the north-east of Sartar and Ap...
