    Yeah, we're not going to get into any gaslighting nonsense which tries to hide that toxic backlash. There's no place for that here. Keep the topic on the upcoming movie, please, folks. I'm not allowing another flamewar about this topic here.

    Not officially, but there are two approaches I use: - one hit one kill minions - pooled health minions (basically as you describe) Both work just fine for me.

    MNblockhead replied to Blow Darts
    The use of poison with blowgun darts was not known in the new world, so blow guns are certainly effective against small animals without poison. But as a weapon to be used against people you pretty much need to use poison or magic. That said, the Cherokee method of hunting with blowguns was to hit the animal in the eye. I can imagine that a dart to the eye as part of a sneak attack would give...

    I'm assuming that you do not mean commercial fishing but recreational/survival fishing. Assuming that these are similar to real-world trout, you could look at how trout has been fished throughout history in the real world. Stone-age peoples or survival fishing in shallow waters could include: (1) using net-like construtions (weirs) made from tied/woven reeds, stretched across an area...

    You're getting a percentage of the points needed to get to your next grade. You could ignore the point totals altogether and just say "one-tenth of a new grade". Everybody is essentially receiving the exact same amount - an equal fraction towards their next grade. If you base it off an average party grade (which is fine, if you prefer that), then people aren't getting the same effective gain...

The aesthetics, the sounds, the styles, Palpatine and Vader, stormtroopers, Star Destroyers, the architecture, even the mouse droids, the whole package ... it’s just *got* something that the bad guys in other eras lack. And the balance of “David v Goliath” is exactly right. So I enjoy stuff set in that era.

    thanks, what I ended up telling the player is: Quiet speech is not the same as the telepathy spell or the MM telepathy language. It is a way of communicating using spoken language, except that instead of transmitting it with your lungs, throat, lips, and tongue, you are using your mind. There is no actual sound waves made, but the recipient receives the words as if there were. They hear...

    The OGL isn't the "3E" OGL or the "5E" OGL. There's just the OGL. And it hasn't been dumped, because it's non-rescindable. Both 3E and 5E have had some (but not all) of their content released under it, as have many other games. One of the main purposes of the OGL, as Ryan Dancey - its architect - said: it means that D&D is here to stay. Nothing can make it go away, not even the whims of a...

    All my elves are British. As are my humans, dwarves, halflings, orcs, dragons... it’s almost like I can’t do accents!

    Olaf the Stout - Speaking strictly as a fan, I agree that publishers could mine their pool of prior backers, it's a logical and, in many cases, a welcome advertising tactic, especially when offering like products. That said, I joined several crowdfunding campaigns that over use that option so I become notification numb to their alerts. As a journalist, I'll keep your question in mind as I talk to crowdfunding publishers in the future. :-) Thanks, Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer If you're a publisher that would like to share an RPG-related job opportunity in a future article or discuss your RPG crowdfunding project, please contact me here. Yeah, I can see how it would quickly become annoying if they overdid it, especially when they’re advertising another Kickstarter and the one you backed still hasn’t been delivered yet. I’ve seen updates like that do nothing but get backers of the original campaign angry. However, I’m sure there’s a happy medium between never and every second day. Maybe one update when the project first goes live and a second update when there is 48-72 hours left as a last chance reminder.

    ...ynamics, you and your party will have to be very careful about what is happening around you and what is hidden, twisted, in the darkness. The adventure is suitable for novice players like Awakened experts, the important thing is to know the setting of Awaken and be ready to take subtle actions or clash with unclean creatures. At the end of the volume there will also be a bestiary containing ten new creatures, with related statistics tables and special abilities, which will be added to Awaken's bestiary and can be met in this adventure or any other Awaken session. 'The Black Lady' is made up of 48 pages full of images, texts, tables and descriptions of game scenes designed as the original manual of Awaken, to give greater adherence to the basic manual.” If you like what we do here at EN World (the Forums, Columns, News, ENnies, etc) and would like to help support us to bring you MORE please consider supporting our Patreon.

    Excellent! It's a fun bit of gaming! I come up from Atlanta, and plan on doing it next year. :-) If you go, ping me (here, the Wanna-lancer link, most social media), I'd like to say hi in-person. :-) Thanks, Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer If you're looking for helpful tips and stock art for your RPG, check out CREATE YOUR OWN FANTASY RPG ADVENTURE - RPG RESOURCES BOOKS on Kickstarter (featuring James Ward, Lenard Lakofka, Rick Hershey, myself, and more). Will do!
  • 03:53 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted Egg Embry in post Check Out the Scene at Columbus’ Origins Game Fair 2018
    It doesn’t always happen, but sometimes the characters just really hit it off in the game and it makes the game that much enjoyable for all of the players involved. There’s something doubly amazing about seeing that role-playing alchemy happen with strangers. Sucks about the harassment. We all have a responsibility to call out that behavior when we see it and support those being subjected to it. I’ve been in the position of a DM having to say something to a player about the terrible creepy stuff coming out of their mouth. The sad thing was, I don’t think they understood why I did so, or how serious an infraction it was. The players had never met each other, but their chemistry was box office gold. Everything they said played perfectly to the other while shaping our adventure.

  • 05:35 PM - Alzrius quoted Egg Embry in post Explore Friendship, Magic And Ponies In Tails Of Equestria Role-Playing Game
    All, Thank you for the kind words and suggestions. :) I'm interested in both the bestiary and the movie supplement because the core rules spoke to me. Anytime. :) Don't forget to check out the mini-scenario titled "The Gift Horse" that the publisher put out on their website a little while ago. This is in the same format as the two-page adventures that come with each of the Tails of Equestria dice sets.

  • 04:41 PM - DMMike quoted Egg Embry in post Gaming At The Kids Table With The Basic Hack
    MAJOR difference- The Basic Hack is roll=to or under Ability score for tests. The Black Hack is roll UNDER. I'd call that a minor difference, but it's a good catch. Little things like that can keep a game from flowing smoothly, especially if the players are used to a different rule. When rolling a d20 to hit, for saves, or other tests, lower is better (for all other dice, roll high) Attributes do not add or deduct from tests like 1e. For example, a 17 STR does not add +1/+1 to hit or damage, but it instead changes the target number that you roll under to determine success When dodging, if the PC rolls a natural 20 (a fail), they take double damage Armor has HP that is added to the PC’s HP instead of being a separate, limited pool or making them more likely to dodge The game includes the 5e mechanic for advantage and disadvantage Points like these make me think "adults' table" over "kids' table." Good review though - have you thought about posting it in the reviews ...

  • 05:15 AM - J.L. Duncan quoted Egg Embry in post Fight The Future With The Synthicide Role-Playing Game
    Ah, thanks for reviewing this! At Gen Con 50, a friend recommended this game. I picked up the quickstart and liked the idea of fewer rolls determining the outcome. It's on my list to buy! :-) Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer EN World All-Ages Reviewer The FirstFable RPG, Monster Slayers, Mouse Tails, Little Wizards, Hero Kids, Little Heroes, Dagger, and Pip System There was a number of things about this game I really liked. Mechanics and character creation are very simple; while the GM sections do a really good job of engaging the GM with a variety of ways to run the game. For being relative unknown indie publisher, this one surprised me. I haven't played it yet, but it's certainly on the list.

    Interested in reading other EN World reviews of all-ages games? Check out: The FirstFable RPG, Monster Slayers, Mouse Tails, Little Wizards, Hero Kids, Little Heroes, and Dagger Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer If you're a publisher and have an all-ages RPG that you'd like to have reviewed, please contact me here. Not sure if you'd qualify it as 'All-Ages', but I'll mention it - No Thank you, Evil! While it is geared toward simplicity and kids, it's obviously meant to be played with the corresponding adults. Just thought I'd present it since I didn't see it in your list =)

    Saxon1974- That is awesome! How many Pokemon have they caught so far? :-) Egg Embry, Wanna-lancer Ha, so far about 9. I figured I had to use rewards they would like. I first used chocate coins (and still do a bit) but then crafted a story that all the pokemons had gone missing from the town so they had to go and find them. Since that, their excitement is through the roof; they ask me to play constantly.
