    There's a range of different campaign management tools available; some free, some not so. RPG Encounters is a free web app designed to work with and sync between all your devices. I hadn't heard of it before, but the creator sent me a hand-written letter to tell me about it, so I could hardly not take a look! The app currently works with four game systems: D&D 5E, Savage Worlds, Stars...

    True, though I expect you'll find there's some aspects that are, while not ubiquitous, are very common. There are styles that exist through large swaths of the gaming community that most of us an recognize. The argument arises because media consumption sets expectations. And if you have your expectations set by behavior that actually has different goals than the folks at your table, that's a...

    There was a time, way back when, that the group I played with did declarations. But, that was back in 1e, and quite frankly, too many times for both PC and NPC that led to nonsensical dud actions. Most games these days don't have declaration like that as part of their design these days.

    The GM should always be free to say that something doesnít apply. That said, think of it like comic books - people die all the time only to come back later. The only limit is a (semi) plausible reason. For the other question, itís not really the number of exploits which makes something powerful. It how they combine.

    We all assume that if they publish a game, they will shift their show to *use* the game. D&D players will no longer have a particular reason to take in their show, and the show won't be an advertisement for D&D. Which means effectively breaking the mutual-marketing relationship between them. That's what would get "blown up". The real question isn't whether they can publish a game. The...

    I think itís interesting that, give the sheer size of CR fandom, they could possibly consider launching their own Critical Role RPG which could rival D&D. Even if it didnít, it would probably be the second biggest RPG in the world.

    Agreed. The reason most fantasy world is basically, "real-world, with individuals who can produce special effects," is to allow the player's life-experience-trained intuition to hold sway most of the time. Well, we should note a couple of things. Quantum mechanics and relativity came by when they did because our basic technology started being able to measure things *outside* the...

    I also have maptool campaign files going up to Banquet, with Vision Blocking Layers drawn on them, if anyone is interested and it is okay with Morrus. They contain only battle maps and visual tokens (no macros etc information) They aren't 100% ready to use though, because I've done them while campaign progressed, meaning that I've had to save "current state" of the maps on them. So they do require small amount of "cleaning" to use.

  • 03:32 PM - tuxgeo mentioned Morrus in post OK, I'm calling it now: THIS IS A BUG.
    I did manage to get the Notification cleared, and this is how I did it: I read my e-mail at home. That told me of the existence of a new message in the social group, "Creative Mountain Gamers." Now, notice: I'm not a member of "Creative Mountain Gamers," though I used to be. (I joined, then quit.) However, somehow I'm still subscribed to notifications about that group -- and I cannot unsubscribe from it, because the only "unsubscribe" option available to me is to unsubscribe from Threads, not from Groups. (I cleared the Notification by clicking on the most recent message thread in that group.) I thought Morrus and the programmer(s) would like to be reminded that it works this way, so they can schedule some time in upcoming months to giving users an option to unsubscribe from Groups as well as from Threads.

  • 09:57 AM - Herobizkit mentioned Morrus in post Too many Kickstarters?!?!?!
    I'm +1 for the "up with Kickstarters!" bandwagon. I've funded and actually received final products from such endeavours (and messed up with credit card payments and missed funding... sorry Morrus *sheepish grin*), and I'm happy to see this become an option for gamers. And not just for gamers... but for anyone who has a project they want to get started but can't without some kind of financial "kick". 3.x products didn't have this option, yet we still managed to see piles of 3rd party products - mind you, many of them didn't go through vigorous prooofreading or playtesting or meet any kind of real criteria othen than respecting the OGC. Yet Kickstarter products give you, the guy with the cash, insight and in some cases, direct input into the product which you are going to buy BEFORE IT EVEN COMES OUT. Why folks would hate on that is beyond me. And we didn't have the www back around 1990, so there's that. The times have changed. Change is good.
  • 12:27 AM - Fox Lee mentioned Morrus in post O.G.R.E: Online Generic Randomizer Engine
    A few questions (which may be worth clarifying in the wiki text itself) Tables can reference tables - does this include themselves? Like, could you implement the oft-seen "100) Roll twice" by giving your table its own name in position 100? Can scripts be used in tables or only in generators? If they can be used in tables, do I put them before or after the body of the table, or can I use them between rows? Is the example given the exact syntax for a table - i.e.: 1) Thing1 2) Thing 2 ...etc.? Are the brackets, spaces and line breaks necessary for O.G.R.E to recognise the table items?And can one use leading zeroes (like, 01 instead of 1)? Can you use a number range in the table, e.g. 01-05 as in the image example, or must you make multiple entries for a particular result if you want that one to be more probable than another? (EDIT: Remembered that this thread is pretty old and I should probably mention Morrus or something if I want a response ^^; Did I do that right?)

    We are the borg. I am designation 1 of 10... the other 9 still need to be assimilated. Morrus I'm seeing a pretty weird little bug here. Under robertzi's profile (both the short one to the left of his post, and on the view profile page here: http://www.enworld.org/forum/member.php?6711830-robertzi ) I see that his post count is 0. But I can clearly see that he has two posts. Do posts in the Meta forums not count towards the limit? Did any of your original members have to do this? If not, I'm telling you that this is a pain, and if everyone had to do it they'd complain to no end. While this was not a requirement when I joined the site, I am 100% sure that I had more than 10 posts under by belt before I ever posted a link or an image. The purpose of the boards is discussion, and the number of times that I've needed to use external links to discuss something is way lower than 10%. Posters like me might never even realize there's a break-in period. Edit: And you ninja'ed me with your apologies, so I guess this defense of the practice is slightly unnecessary. Oh well.

    @Nytmare : Quite well said, thank you. I just hope I can one day upgrade from humor-esque to normal humor. @Evenglare : Sadly, yes. I thought it would immediately be taken as a joke, but it appears most people thought I was serious. I'd like to refer everyone to paragraph one: "In any debate of one totally unrelated medium against another..." I'd like to point out that I intended that statement as totally absurdest, satirical, and of no basis in reality. Somewhat like comparing Hot Wheels(TM) to kumquats. I really appreciate the feedback, though. I hadn't really expected so many people to vote Minecraft over RPGs on an RPG website. Very interesting. Perhaps I should start writing Minecraft columns? I also intended the article to create as much trolling as possible. Thanks for the explanation, @Morrus ! P.S. I was joking about the trolling part.

    Baldurís Gate 2 and Planeacape: Torment were both as good, if not better. Tastes vary of course, and there have been dozens of D&D video games since then. I loved NWN1, probably more than the BG games. I also loved NWN 1. NWN 2 fell a little flat for me, but the Mask of the Betrayer Expansion was really good. Hard to beat that NWN 1 toolset though.

  • 09:12 PM - HomegrownHydra quoted Morrus in post Pathfinder 2 Character Sheet #3: Valeros, Human Fighter
    Thatís an awesome example of glass half empty! :) It looks like you will want to minimise attacks because attacking directly reduces the amount of movement you get. So combat looks to be a very dynamic affair with everybody running around until they accidentally run into a foe. In other words, both are true. You can do either. Itís what you choose to make of it. You don't win a battle by running around. Attacks are inherently worth more than movement because it's the attacks that end a battle. So the PF2 method isn't much different than Full Attacks from 3e/PF1 which similarly discouraged movement.

    Thereís an article on EONS which covers the idea of various stances. I canít remember itís name offhand though! I think it was titled En Garde. Also, The Holds of Vendalyr has several new exploits for the DEFENSE-minded character: Elusive Mark, Cunning Defense, Reactive Strike, Reactive Trip, and Uncanny Dodge. Plus, each of the eight stances (called Tilts in the book) offer a psionic ability that applied to DEFENSE while the stance is active.

  • 02:11 AM - A Lone Chocobo quoted Morrus in post [WION] A couple of questions
    Blimey. Hmmm. Let me think. I don't quite grok what that core mechanic is, so it's a little tricky, but it's a point system which at certain levels limits your die rolls? In that case, maybe it reduces your max dice pool? Say every time you criticise when spell casting, your max dice pool goes down by 1d6. I assume there's some kind of recovery mechanic for that in 7th Sea? There is a limit to what you can roll, it's kind of like VtM or Exalted in that it maxes out at 5 ranks for both stats and skills. If you mean Fate Magic and how the lashes work, what happens is when you get a certain amount of lashes you cannot use dice reading that number or below when you are building sets of ten. 5 lashes means when you are building a set of 10, any dice that read 5 or below can't be used. Sorry if it seems if I am repeating myself, but I don't quite understand what you mean. As for recovering from the lashes, there are two ways, in fact. You either: Pay in Blood. That means if you want t...

  • 09:12 PM - A Lone Chocobo quoted Morrus in post [WION] A couple of questions
    That's weird. I definitely answered this this morning, and my reply has vanished. Anyway, here goes again... Deity portfolios only tell you what secrets you are allowed to choose - they don't give them to you for free. Alright, thanks for clearing that up. I'm not familiar with 7th Sea magic, but from what you're describing they sound like they would be careers like the Firemage, Necromancer, etc. After thinking on it, that actually makes a lot of sense. Especially when I re-read through N.O.W. and saw that some martial artists careers can give exploits. I'll probably create a bunch of exploits for the fate witch to take, along with a couple of other exploits. Thanks for that. Maybe throw it a tarot card reading skill too. Another one of the big things about Fate Magic is the fact that fate doesn't like you messing with her strands. In the game, the mechanic is that you gain something called a lash for every time you use fate magic. What this does is essentially lock you from using a ...

    Interests are (in order): Gamers, Movie Lovers, hardcore Gamers, Roleplaying Game Fans, Fast Food Cravers (?!?), Technophiles, Music Lovers, Comics & Animation Fans, Value Shoppers, and then Shutterbugs (whatever that is). Huh. I wonder how Google can deduce those categories, unless they either understand what folks are looking at on this site, or are doing cross-site associations. (I presume that they do both of these things.) My guess is that Fast Food Lovers are folks who frequently eat American style fast food, and Shutterbugs are either folks who are into photography and have invested in medium to high end photography equiptment, or are folks who like to take (and post) pictures, which is very easy now to do with phones and tablets.

  • 09:33 PM - Marandahir quoted Morrus in post Pathfinder 2's Ranger Is A Magic-Free Wilderness Hunter
    Itís pretty much Aragorn. I don't see his Warlord or Paladin-like abilities, so I don't think that's a fair comparison. That would be like saying a Wizard class was pretty much Gandalf, when we all know he's just as much Cleric and Paladin. Lord of the Rings characters never fit into one specific race-class chassis in any edition of D&D. It's a lot of effort to make them "work." I just found it slightly ironic that this was one of the topics of countless edition wars of years past. I hope it doesn't lead to Pathfinder 1e vs Pathfinder 2e. This does look like a fun one in my opinion, and is a design choice 5e D&D probably should be considering if they're still thinking about further Ranger revisions. Module approach is usually good in my book, especially in a game like Pathfinder where so much is tinkerable.
  • 08:25 PM - kingpin000 quoted Morrus in post [NEW/NOW] Looking for some insight and tips to create careers for a Mass Effect campaign
    I don't know what that means? For example you have grade 11 (8d6) and take the first exploit, your minion has now a MDP of 2d6. When you took the first exploit earlier and now take the second one, your minion has a MDP of 4d6. When you took the first and the second one earlier and now take the third one, your minion has the same MDP like you (8d6). The idea behind it that the PC specializes the ability to use a NPC as proxy instead of spawn it out of boredom. The PC has to sacrifice slots of exploits to get the minion at full strength. This isnt much a problem in a fantasy setting but in modern and scifi settings, it could end up in a drone like this for a starting character.
  • 07:40 PM - kingpin000 quoted Morrus in post [NEW/NOW] Looking for some insight and tips to create careers for a Mass Effect campaign
    No. But I reckon an exploit could be used to grade up a creature by one dice pool, as long as it always has a lower MDP than you do. What do you think about the "D&D approach" to split the ability into three exploits (0.25/0.5/1xMDP) to avoid the abuse of it at the early levels?
