    I have got other idea: Ernest Chewabara is fey (lord) who becomes leader of the rebellion against the high pantheon, and after the fall of the old "theocracy" arrives the cult of the goddess Raison and her high prophet Xarm, whose symbol is a yellow axe and a mining pick on a red background, and the clery is rule by the fey lord but really Ernest Chewabara isn't a true hero, but a pawn oby...

    I add time spheres (idea from Chronomancer AD&D 2nd Ed), and the elemental planes are different. There are floating islands of "solid clouds", or "cotton sargassos" in the air plane. The water plane is a group of floating burbles linked with "rivers-pillars" and stars among them. The earth plane is full of "hollow spaces" with a "star" in the centre. The fire plane is like hot and shining, but...

    Something like the mental health from "Unkown Armies", and like levels of health from Storytelling System by White Wolf. Also I have thought about rules for transhumanism ergos and morphes from "Eclipse Phase", a rpg where all players can be killed, but the game to be a success.

    I bought 3.5 Tome of Magic, and for me the image of the shadowcaster class with her mysteries (shadow powers) is too strong. For me shadow magic isn't about anti-light or darkness, but about the dark matter and dark energy from dark matter from real life science, about cosmic forces can't be sensed by us.

    I wonder about create a new d20 Universal with some changes to can be used for different genres, for example sci-fi or horror. My suggestion is adding more (optional) abilities scores: astuteness, technique, courage and grace(= luck, fate, karma, divine blessing). It would be useful for the 3rd Party companies.

    For me mind-affecting psionic powers can be resisted with defenses against mind-affecting magic, and elemental damage by psionic disciplines can be neutralice by standard magic defenses against elemental damage resistance. Casting spells is harder if the wizard can't speak or move, but psionic manifesters only need concentration, don't they? And we need psionic powers if we want the...

    I like the idea of mentalist, a hybrid arcane-psionic class. About background, the magic needs "tools", like words, material focus, rituals, obeying taboos, and gestures. Psionics don't need that. If Naruto the ninja is moving the fingers for a "hand seal", then that is magic, not psionic power. Wizards, sorcerers and warlocks are different because the wizards represents the study, the...

    I would like a new edition of d20 Modern, and with the sourcebook "Spectacular" about Superheroes, but the d20 system needs a lot of testing to can create a rpg for the modern age, where the balance of power is broken if the PCs can get extra help, for example military weapons (Do you remember the second season of Buffy Vampire Slayer with a bazooka to kill "the judge"? Only a shot was enough).

Other option is using summoned creatures "trained" to search traps, or maybe they are too small and light, to active the traps, or too fast to be hit.

    My opinion is a hexblade/duskblade can't be only a paladin with arcane spells. It needs its own mark of identity. I would rather something like the swordsage from "3.5 Tome of Battle: book of nine swords" with arcane spell-like martial maneuvers, or encounter mysteries (by shadowcaster class) instead of daily spells. Could a subclass be like the warmage 3.5 class?

    Here in Spain RPGs were totally unknown until beggining the 90's years, Dungeons & Dragons was only a child TV cartoon with a very popular opening theme song. We had got our own "satanic panic" in 1994 with "el asesino del rol" (the killer of the Role(playing-games). This murder by a fool gave a very bad image to RPG fanboys. But it is curious, because in the second half of 90's years in Spain...

    If in D&D the resurrection is possible, or to create cloned body organs, why not healing cancer? But sometimes some diseases can't be healed by "ordinary" divine spells. Other times is a divine punishment or a last warning to a sinner after a life of bad actions. And the most of times the healing magic is too expensive for most of mortal civilians.

  • 10:58 AM - Doug McCrae mentioned LuisCarlos17f in post [13th Age] Should I play up the conflict between Law and Chaos?
    LuisCarlos17f That seems reasonable under a nine alignment system. Good, Evil and Nature are the three most important factions in D&D-world, with a possible Cthulhu/Tharizdun/Far Realm as a fourth. Under the three alignment system I'd place Nature as neutral. This is a different approach to Tolkien, where nature is very clearly good and the forces of evil, represented by orcs and Saruman, are strongly anti-nature.

    I don't need to buy a photocopier machine if I can go to a copy shop (they are usual in cities with universities). I guess in the future the videogames with creator of characters will add software for the option of making a miniature with a 3D printer. Ah, but you already know how to use a photocopier - position the original, press the button and voila. 3D printers are nowhere near that straightforward yet. Count me as one who is very interested in getting into 3D printing - trying to learn and research for a purchase by the end of this year.

  • 06:19 PM - Tony Vargas quoted LuisCarlos17f in post Psion as Wizard archetype − Happy Fun Hour
    I think part of the problem with psions, why many people feel they're "too sci-fi", is the name. After all, the term was originally coined by a science fiction author, was it not? John W. Campbell, c1952. He proposed the term to mean something 'engineering applied to powers of the mind' (the 'enhancing psychic powers with electronics' definition is closer to psychotronics, but that gets really weird...). And, yes, 'psionic' was coined by adding 'psi' + the '-onics' ending (lifted from electronics) that, in the 50s, had buzz comparable to '.com' in the 90s, having supplanted '-ola' as the ending you pasted on something to make it sound cool & modern (about the only examples that may ring a bell, today would be Motorola and granola). But if you call them psychics, then they don't really sound science-fictiony at all. Or, if you think giving a class the same name as one of the damage types is a bad idea, "mentalist" works pretty well too.Psychic were coined (or rather adopted into English) in...

    I like the idea of mentalist, a hybrid arcane-psionic class. About background, the magic needs "tools", like words, material focus, rituals, obeying taboos, and gestures. Psionics don't need that. If Naruto the ninja is moving the fingers for a "hand seal", then that is magic, not psionic power. And that would all be well and good if the Psion was in the PHB and subsequent books would be built with the idea that there's a type of magic that requires different features to interact with. But for now, if psionic powers are impossible to detect and cant be affected by magical counters, there's a lot of monsters in the MM that are render useless because they have absolutely no way to counter or impact the manifesting of psionic powers. That not disturbing when fighting wolves and goblins, but it is ridiculous to think that a lich would be unable to counter the powers of a psion while she could protect herself against weapon and spells. It could be a strange tell, the 4e luminous circle thing...

Another thing too I want nothing to do with any type of romance at all nor am I looking into them for ideas.

Of course the only thing I like about Masquerade is it's disciplines though since they're powerful and combat effective than Reqiuem's disciplines which I might as well port Masquerade clans like the Tremere, Tzimisce and Lasombra as bloodlines including their disciplines intact.

    * Is political correct to can use Indian pantheon for a fantasy worlds? Hinduism is a real religions with millions of followers. I would argue that it's problematic. As someone who has counted Shaivites and Kali devotees amongst his friends since the early 1990s, portrayals of Hindu deities in prior iterations of D&D are embarrassing. This is part of the historical Orientalism which I think has pervaded the game. I think we're also incredibly selective about what we choose to be offended by. In another thread, Celebrim alluded to the fact that demons and devils somehow get a free pass. But I've no doubt that the inclusion of these monsters in the game still presents an insurmountable barrier to millions of practicing Christians who might otherwise be amenable to giving D&D a try. I'm not advocating a Satanic panic or a return to a recast fiend, à la 2e; merely observing that we do not apply our "criteria of offense" consistently. If we have to accuse someone of being lazy then the leas...

There are no hard and fast rules that can settle the matter for everyone everywhere once and for all. Life and people, not to mention art and culture, are simply too complex. A far more productive way of looking at it is: How can I go about incorporating this element in a way that's respectful of the real history and culture(s) that created it?

Now we are used to videogames and movies (Warcraft or Lords of the Rings), you are using your imagination, creating new stories, you are with your friends, and you are learning social skills, to risk, to face challenges, sometimes you fail and other times you sucess, and then you get more self-confidence, and that is very importat for a teenage. When I introduce my students to D&D (and pen & paper rpgs in general) I like to open with: ''It's like a computer game. With no computer. Or rather, everyone playing is the computer.''

    The true challenge for a d20 Modern campaing is the balance of power with the modern weapons. A psico-killer with a knife may be a nightmare for unarmed civilians PCs in a survival story, but for a PC like Silverter Stalone in the movie "Cobra" they are only walking target, canon fodder and free extra XPs. A huge monster like an elephant can be killed with only a shot by a RPG (Rocket-propelled grenade). A horde of zombies is a serious menace, but they could be hit by means of driving a truck.

The key is to the use and the environment that the attacker is used in, as to a human killer with a knife. He would stock and attack when he can get an advantage over the prey he is following.

    Why the name of the evil emperor is Christian and not Henry Crowell, Vladimir, Zhao Gao, Castro, Urraca Jones, Robespierre or Abu Almanzor? Because if you were an evil emperor you would want to pick a name that would instill trust and hope in the people and help them overlook signs of oppression. What better name than "Christian"? You'd never pick a name that could be linked to an actual dictator in history where people might associate your rule with tyranny. This sort of insidious appropriation of names, or the association of something bad with something good to elicit an emotional response counter to objective factual reality and to further the political aims of the appropriator, is common in modern politics, in the US, and likely around the world. I won't cite specific examples, because EN World has a no politics rule, but if I did I'd surely elicit an emotional response that would exactly prove my point as people internalize these phrases and word associations to re-affirm their own wor...
