    Advice for homebrew kids rpg

    Hi there, I tried some different rpgs to play with my kids (2 boys, 3 and 7) and we weren't totally happy with any out now (looking forward to No Thank you evil though!). So I decided to make my own based on a campaign I made years ago. Basically you have 4 attributes--Strength, Speed, Smarts...

    Dazed condition in racial power

    Does this sound overpowered (underpowered) for a racial power? Encounter Psionic Minor Action Ranged 5 Attack: Intelligence +2 vs. Will Hit: The target is dazed until the end of your next turn. Also, during that time you and your allies gain a +2 to Bluff and Diplomacy...

    1d10 instead of 1d20

    Has anyone here ever played around with using a d10 instead of a d20 (for OGL games)? If so, any problems/advantages to it? Just curious--I've been playing around with different dice and such.

    Bonus equivalent for rerolls?

    Doing some experimenting here.... I remember reading somewhere that rerolling a d20 is roughly equivalent to a +2 bonus (if I remember correctly). What if I use 2d10 and instead of a reroll, roll 3d10 and take the best 2? Does anyone know how to figure out what the equivalent bonus would be...

    Skills after 1st level?

    Has this already been addressed? I really like the background mechanic but I was wondering what happens if you want to add a skill of some sort at a latter level? Has anyone heard anything? If not, any ideas? Maybe through feats?

    Psionics Terms for New System

    Okay, working on a new psionics system for 3.x/pathfinder and need some help with naming some terms. The two I need help with are... 1. A mental attack bonus all characters have to resolve psionic powers. Powers work like skills but use one modifier that advances with level. Right now I'm...

    Encounter and Daily Points

    I was thinking of having encounter and daily points instead of the way powers work now in 4E and folding Action Points into on of them. So, for example a character would start with 2 or 3 encounter points, and 1 or 2 daily points to spend on powers and other abilities such as an extra action...

    Traps in DMG I

    Are the traps in the DMG reprinted in any of the essential books? It seems that most of the other things are in the Rules Compendium... What about traps and hazards and such?

    What is arcane magic?

    Maybe a silly question but what the heck is arcane magic? Other types of magic/powers/whatever make sense -- divine/primal magic can be explained by gods and spirits... psionics can be explained by latent powers of the brain... So what is arcane magic then? How to make sense out of a spell? Or...
