The Glain Companion

Post Wed Jun 21, 2017 8:30 am

I've decided to compile the supplements I use in my home game into a single document, for the convenience of my players, and I'm sharing it in the Showcase.

This is how I play the game. Just in case anyone cares.

Maybe nothing has been changed or added, but the adventure section is blank. If you use anything different I would be interested in hearing what it is.

Thanks for sharing, I like the twist on magic use.

I matched up the sections to the Core Rules, and there is just nothing I've changed or added in that section, Munkey. Now I have to decide how to handle it...

So I stripped the "PART N:" bits from the section titles, and removed the Adventure section completely. I realized it didn't work anyway, since I had already omitted Monsters.

R3 was just uploaded, so feel free to check it out and comment if you feel the urge.

Very nice; I like your chosen means of handling spell-casting, as well as the options you've chosen for defending, unarmored combat, and two-weapon combat.

I have one question. One page 13, under the heading Using Magic, the following text appears: "If the spellcaster is reduced to zero hit points but lives..." My question is: How do you handle death/dying to allow for the possibility of surviving being reduced to zero hit points? I'm curious how you've chosen to handle this. Apologies if I'm missing it in the document (I looked, but couldn't find it).

It's not in there. The Core Rules gives a number of options; I tend to use the negative 10 rule myself.
