    Glorantha - a d20 setting?

    Hi! I know that Glorantha and RuneQuest are so intertwined in people's minds for it to be heresey to suggest that Glorantha could be used with any other rule system . . . However, I believe Mongoose RuneQuest (at least the first edition) was based on a heavily modified OGL ruleset. So I was...

    Rebellion Era Star Wars Campaign

    I'm a little ignorant of the Star Wars Saga Edition line of books (other than the core rulebook which I bought at launch). With the news that WotC are not going to renew their license I was wondering which books would be considered essential to a Rebellion Era campaign (i.e. one set in the time...

    Planning a new Psionics campaign - any advice?

    Hi! Previously I've always kept psionics out of my fantasy campaigns. However, in a new campaign I'm putting together for my players I've decided to replace magic with psionics. As I've never included psionics in any 3.xE campaign so far I'd be grateful for any experience other people might...

    D&D 3E/3.5 Help me create a 3.5E LA+0 half-vampire race

    The way I had thought about it was that a dhampir starts a grapple attack with a touch attack (provoking an attack of opportuinity unless s/he has the Improved Grapple Feat), and then makes an opposed grapple check as a free action. Success would mean a successful bite attack (for 1d4 blood...

    D&D 3E/3.5 Help me create a 3.5E LA+0 half-vampire race

    OK . . . all things considered, with thanks to Hawken for feedback, here's where I think I am with this: Dhampir Racial Traits +2 Strength, -2 Constitution. The vampire blood running through their veins make dhampir physically powerful but their time on the Plane of Shadows has reduced their...

    D&D 3E/3.5 Help me create a 3.5E LA+0 half-vampire race

    I've been musing on the whole craving/healing part of the puzzle and wondered if it could be approached in a different way. The way the race is currently written they cannot gain healing through divine magic but otherwise heal as normal. And their need to feed is driven through a craving for...

    D&D 3E/3.5 Help me create a 3.5E LA+0 half-vampire race

    Not a bad idea - thank you :) This was a direct reply to a comment by Matrixryu? :confused: This was not focusing on the vampire traits the dhampir would have but the human adaptability of their make-up. Spending centuries with their vampire forefathers it isn't unreasonable to expect some...

    D&D 3E/3.5 Help me create a 3.5E LA+0 half-vampire race

    Thanks for the reply :) Forgetting about the way ordinary vampires drain blood, how could I penalise the dhampir bite attack to keep it balanced but maintain it as an ordinary unarmed strike? e.g. apply an additional -2 attack penalty, reduce the damage inflicted to 1d3? With regards to...

    D&D 3E/3.5 Help me create a 3.5E LA+0 half-vampire race

    With a view to having an emrgence of an new race in the current campaign based on a legend that the players are already aware of . . . The following are some rough ideas that I'd be grateful for comment on :): Back story: During the Coalition Wars that raged across the continent the population...

    Adventure ideas for campaign based in the Antarctic

    I'm planning to start a d20 Modern campaign based in the Antarctic. It'll also contain elements from d20 CoC and possibly d20 WoD and will be loosely based on the film The Thing. i.e. a small research crew working in the Antarctic that stumbles across all kinds of nastiness and has to deal with...

    Forked Thread: Should players know the rules?

    Forked from: Should players know the rules? This got me thinking about how I prefer to DM/play/introduce new players and perhaps minor issues with 3.5E as I pretty much agree with Umbran. With my gaming group we have tended to emphasise the "role"playing aspect while playing a bit fast and...

    Enhancing Castles & Crusades with 3.5E feats

    I've been daydreaming about starting up a new campaign after bringing our current one to a close based on C&C. I've been musing about something simpler but possibly not quite as simple as C&C (although it's close). I was just wondering what experience people have had of using the basic rules...

    Pathfinder 1E Pathfinder Campaign Setting

    Hi! I'm gearing up for the published Pathfinder rules next year and wondered what the current information on the Pathfinder setting is? I'd like to draw a distinction, if possible, between the material to support specific adventures and more general information on the setting. I guess what I'm...

    Armour rules from Unearthed Arcana

    Hi! I'm quite attracted to the idea of using the Class Defence Bonus from Unearthed Arcana as well as using the armour as damage reduction. However, I just wondered if anyone had any experience of using them in play as the Class Defence Bonus seem a little high at 1st level (e.g. for clerics...

    d20 Midnight spellcasting system in play

    I've recently been reading through the Midnight settings (and several of the other supplements) and I am really quite taken with the setting and will be discussing using it with my players. My only real discomfort is with the spellcasting system (I may just be too indoctrinated in the standard...
