  • 10:45 PM - CleverNickName mentioned Ed Laprade in post Mixing Genres: Sci-Fi Campaign using 5E Rules
    ...Edition rules, and it's science fiction. I am going to download it as soon as I get home and start tinkering with it. And from what you said about the Mage Hand Press kickstarter, I'll definitely be checking that out as well. lowkey13: Thank you for the list of source material. I am especially, incredibly, super-stoked about the Numinera 5E resource! I would really love to run a Numinera campaign one of these days, and this just might be the way to introduce my table (and myself) to that system. And it's nice to see an old vrusk like Star Frontiers getting some 5E love...I played that game like crazy back in high school. DM Dave1, Capn Charlie: the ENWorld community is the best gaming community on the Internet, and I'll fight anyone who says otherwise. Thank you for pointing me to the Fifth Age material...I'll add it to my list of materials to check out when I get home. It's looking like a long, awesome weekend of sci-fi and dice! jgsugden, Ed Laprade: I picked up Starfinder as part of Paizo's most recent Humble Bundle (everybody else should, too.) The lore looks interesting, and probably wouldn't take a lot of work to bring it into any RPG system. But as far as the rules go, my gaming group made it very clear that we would be using 5th Edition rules only. (And given our past experience with Pathfinder's rigorous rules, I'm afraid they might revolt.)

    Mostly. But I tend to analyze books/movies etc. as I read/watch them. That's just how my mind works. So it was the first thing that I thought of. The fact that she never even tried did annoy me a bit, but it was a great movie all the same.I apologize for being sarcastic. ,[emoji3]

    Doesn't sound much like an RPG to me. And are you allowed to use the technique that Our Heroine should have used? (Climbing OVER the frekin' walls! They weren't that high, and had plenty of handholds. And once at the top, she could have scouted out a route that would have cut down on the time even more, every time she climbed one.)Oh my, you just didn't get it.. did you?

It's a magical place, you can be sure that if she had tried climbing, the walls would have grown up and she would never have reached the top.

  • 10:44 PM - Wik quoted Ed Laprade in post Pre-Campaign Handouts
    There are the basics, of course. Races/classes permitted or excluded. Starting level (it isn't always 1st level). Any extras the characters might get (more money, a Feat at level 1, extra equipment, etc.). Where they'll start, and as much or the world background as you feel they might need. And, for myself, a MAP! Or maybe more than one map (world, kingdom, starting city, etc.). Also, the theme of the adventure(s), if there is one. You don't want everyone showing up with a spell caster if magic is forbidden! Oo. A map is a good one! Usually I just give the players a physical copy of the map a few sessions in - with inaccuracies built in and waaaaay too many coffee stains and whatnot. :)

  • 10:53 PM - Mike Myler quoted Ed Laprade in post Mythological Figures: Tarzan (5E)
    I haven't read them in decades myself, but when I did, it was often. Not saying you shouldn't do this, just that a warning that they aren't going to be the way fans of the characters remember them might be in order. If you look there's always somebody wanting Thor to have a natural Strength of 27 or whatever. There's usually something useful mentioned though (Tarzan's dad's knife for example!) so I've resisted the urge to include a RAW disclaimer just yet. I'm thinking chaotic good instead of neutral good. He had a specific distaste for civilization and the laws of man. Awesome conversion, though; that's about as close as you could get with RAW. I wasn't sure if you'd go barbarian or beast master ranger, but barbarian works. I went with neutral good because from what I could remember he's a super naturalist with a good-heart. Not necessarily rebellious or spontaneous really, just a "this is the way the world is naturally so that's how I live my life." There's definitely a good argum...
  • 09:54 PM - Mike Myler quoted Ed Laprade in post Mythological Figures: Tarzan (5E)
    This is NOT Tarzan, pure and simple. The trouble with these exercises is that a lot of fictional/legendary characters simply can't be made properly with RAW. You don't even give him his iconic weapon, his father's knife. (Despite the fact that he kept losing it, he always had it again in the next book.) Unfortunately I don't have time to read the library of Tarzan adventures and it's been a long time since I've ingested any of them--I do have a minute I can spend adding in a dagger! We're up to 30 heresies right now so let me know when we're reaching critical levels.
  • 09:50 PM - BookBarbarian quoted Ed Laprade in post Mythological Figures: Tarzan (5E)
    This is NOT Tarzan, pure and simple. The trouble with these exercises is that a lot of fictional/legendary characters simply can't be made properly with RAW. True, and yet I still base most my characters of fictional archetypes I like such as Conan, or Aragorn types. So I get value out of these discussions. Hell I've based characters of of the Hulk dispute the fact that D&D just won't let my character easily lift 100,000+ tons. The character was still fun. The Discussion of "How can I make my character more like Tarzan" has value even if I can't exactly emulate Tarzan in 5e.

As you skipped them, how do you know those parts are boring? And skipping parts on the 1st & only reading means that you have not in-fact read the trilogy. Merely parts of it.

  • 09:11 PM - VengerSatanis quoted Ed Laprade in post Worlds of Design: When There's Too Many Magic Items
    Ugh. A healing potion that only may, or may not work? No thank you, such a rule would make consumable items nearly useless. They are 'bad' enough in that many people hoard them, waiting for 'just the right time' to use them, which may never come. (Or, if it does, they might not realize it.) Just to clarify, it would definitely work for as many times as the character's level per day. But, yes, there would be a chance of it not working if PCs kept spamming healing potions throughout the day. Being less infallible, maybe they wouldn't get hoarded. Or if you think that would be a problem, just decrease the number of healing potions in the world. All things being equal, you want players to wait for "just the right time" to use a special item or magical ability. Otherwise, magic is just commonplace and eventually may become boring. VS

Hoarding tends to get alleviated if you make drops of consumables happen a bit more regularly and/or make them available for purchase or manufacture.

  • 10:43 PM - Tonguez quoted Ed Laprade in post Brexit is now a Movie!!!
    But how will it end? Even the people making it don't know! Thats the trick - if They get what They want then it will never end and They will keep spinning out new deals every year until everyone gets sick of it, only to realise that its too late and We can't go back to the way it was...

  • 10:04 PM - Jay Verkuilen quoted Ed Laprade in post Worlds of Design: Fantasy vs. Sci-Fi Part 2
    I'll stick with Damon Knight's (I think he was the first to use it) definition: "Science fiction is what I point to when I say it." Every other definition I've ever heard of has exceptions. Basically the "I give up!" definition. ;) This is why I said these aren't natural kinds in last week's discussion, but instead family resemblances around prototypes, and thus no airtight definition exists. That doesn't mean we can't explore what seems to characterize the prototypes, though.
