    Someinteresting points on Alignment by way of Shakespeare..

    I liked this video because it had Shakespeare. Alignment discussions are usually uninteresting as it's not a very good mechanic, but it's a great background tool.

    What are y'all up to these days?

    Playing RM 2nd edition. My 5th level sorcerer found a rune, failed to read. Turns out it was a fireball and he almost triggered it. Close call, but it would have been a glorious TPK: We would have talked about it for the rest of our lives.

    What are y'all up to these days?

    Those kind of hour long searches for a box of sticks are not uncommon; it's like the dark side of Old School. A sense of urgency should help focus them. Falling Rocks, Poison Gas, Balrog waking up, whatever. Character-driven urgency is better,I think, but that is not always possible. I have a...

    B/X Style or early AD&D Magic Creation Rules

    You wing it. Add a level for the variation add more levels for extra features. Try to gauge the new spell against other spells at the same level. When the spell is in play, that's your playtest. Be prepared to make adjustments if its under or over powered. Try to get sufficient data. This...

    Blue Rose - love-hate relationships are still romantic, right?

    Nice OP. It does sound like an abusive relationship though.

    What are y'all up to these days?

    Home for 4 days as well. I went to work, got screened out because of what is likely a common cold. Three of us ( including my supervisor) then went to the hospital for Covid testing. Enjoyed being in a room full of pleasant young nurses'; did not enjoy the swab they stuck deep into my nasal...

    What are y'all up to these days?

    I gamed last night. I sat 15 feet away from the DM. It worked out.

    How Many D&D do you own?

    I currently possess PHB's for 1st and 2nd ed, Original FR Box st, and some misc splat from 2nd and 3rd. Have BFRPG printed out. When I run a game, that's my base.

    What are y'all up to these days?

    Probably will have to switch to Discord in order to get any sort of TTRPG done for the next few (?) months. I'm not looking forward to it, but will likely try it because friends are counting on me for now. There's other hobbies. I'm also working more, and not less. I do not know if Dungeons and...

    Did anyone use Blackmoor combat (hit location) in D&D?

    What are y'all up to these days?

    Playing in ongoing Rolemaster 2nd ed campaign. The party is attacking an Ogre Village that straddles a small river and we are quite outnumbered. We came up with a Clever Plan (TM), which necessitated splitting the party in two groups. The Sneaky group went off to do their things, while the Main...

    [Mythras - Classic Fantasy] what to do with the rogue and the monk

    I've also found it can be difficult for a game to change up to army scale conflict for various reasons. I cut my teeth on wargamimg, but many players don't have the background or interest (or ability). So I think Edgewise's ideas are solid. Special OPs focus, instead of wargaming, and/or split...

    [Mythras - Classic Fantasy] what to do with the rogue and the monk

    I empathise. Don't want to sound flip.

    [Mythras - Classic Fantasy] what to do with the rogue and the monk

    What's the issue with seperate sessions on the short term? Aside from RW scheduling issues, those kind of advnetures add depth to the campaign. Party variability can be very refreshing.

    Stuff to do in Shanghai during the 30ies

    Shanghai had a sizable White Russian community. Maybe the party meets a ballet dancer/assassin as a friend or foe (or both!)

    Combat and Description

    Minimal, with variations. Like in broadcasting sports, colour commentary is welcome and persistent but secondary to the play.
