    WOIN 3 Actions = +10 To Initiative or -10?

    I believe the description of 3 actions is incorrect. Since you start from highest to lowest, someone with 3 actions would act on their initiative -10, yes? If this is true, this should be added to the errata. :)

    WOIN Official Errata Thread

    In the printed version of NOW< page 65 is missing the Universal Exploits heading, the first paragraph, and part of the second paragraph (the first sentence). The page begins with "terms of attribute..." This is present in the PDF.

    WOIN SRD - Power Attack typo

    OK, so reading the errata; Damage. When exchanging attack dice for damage, you may do so at a 1:1 exchange rate. So the correction should be; Power attack. You can pay 1d6 to do +1d6 damage. You can stack as many bonus damage dice as you wish by paying 1d6 for each.

    WOIN SRD - Power Attack typo

    --> WOIN Rules Reference Document - Combat Actions Power attack. You can pay 1d6 to do +1d6 damage. You can stack as many bonus damage dice as you wish by paying 2d6 for each. Is believe this should read 2d6?

    WOIN Any plans to do campaigns or add-ons for NOW?

    Spirits of Manhatten Dark Decade: From Dust To Dawn The Possessed (coming soon!) I also would love to see more WOIN stuff!! If we have Ghostbusters, From Dusk Till Dawn, and the Poltergeist series with the serial numbers filed off, we could use G.I. Joe, Transformers, A-Team, and Starblazers. :-D

    Why Do You Hate An RPG System?

    I get that. What I'm saying is that person A comes along and says "here's why I hate system A." (Answering your question) Person B reads that and it happens that system A is person's B favorite system. It's inevitable that person B is going to rise to defend system A. My premise is that asking...

    Why Do You Hate An RPG System?

    I tried to read the thread, but there was so much bickering (and side-treks from the original post) that I got lost. IMHO this thread started with a terrible premise. Why do you care? I think we all have enough experience to know; If you tell someone you hate "their" system - they are going to...

    Pathfinder 2E Paizo drops use of the word phylactery

    I like this alternative. I find "soul cage" and "soul vessel" to be a little boring. Not so much that I would cry havoc into the dark night sky... My initial opinion on this was "tempest in a teapot" and didn't really understand the controversy. This thread has informed me and I now feel I...

    Some Stats from the Wired Article

    The best money to be made in the industry is NOT working for someone, but publishing yourself. The barriers are somewhat lower these days. There are too many open games out there and content creator programs to feel bound by the "big companies". You would better off in the DM's Guild than trying...

    Tomorrow War

    It was a fun romp, lots of emotional character interaction, and tons of action! The aliens were amazing, terrifying, and wicked. Seriously, someone leveled up their CGI skills on this one. Superb stuff. The plot has holes the size of Pratt's smile. Some seriously questionable choices and...

    Pathfinder 2E Pathfinder 2 and support for other playing styles/subgenres

    Your starting premise is flawed. In your opinion, it has a long list of flaws. However, in practice, I think your expectations are flawed. Reading through your recent list of posts, and the list you added here, it's obvious that PF2 doesn't play they way you want. In fact, I believe D&D 4e is...

    Pathfinder 2E Pathfinder 2 and the two dichotomies

    All d20 systems are eminently hackable. I get the problem statement but what would you do to fix it (in your mind)? Maybe give magic-focused foes more at-will abilities? Increase DCs for those abilities (maybe by increasing the linked Attribute)? Maybe just lower attack bonus and AC by a certain...

    Trying to find some mapping software

    Also, if you're not up to mapping, don't forget about the HUGE selection of VTT assets on DTRPG. I'm a cartographer and I still leverage DTRPG to find something quickly. You can also buy assets on Roll20 and download them to your computer. I'm sure other VTTs allow the same.

    Pathfinder 2E Regarding the complexity of Pathfinder 2

    If the answer is "no? Is no more anecdotal than your evidence... Someone told you they don't read all the feats. So there you go. Is it common? In my experience - no. Most players don't read the whole book. Many players read only the min required. The build masters like to read everything...

    Pathfinder 2E Regarding the complexity of Pathfinder 2

    So - PF2 combat and game play don't seem terribly complicated to me. I've been at this 40 years now and I GM games like GURPS and HERO. There are not a ton of complicated procedures (maybe figuring modifiers to a roll having the potential for most "points of handling"). What is unfortunate is...

    Game Masters: Shooting Your Own Campaign in the Foot

    I've been doing this for a bit, let me recollect; 1) I once had an enormous army of orcs with awesome flying barges setup to "encourage the PCs to go another way". Yes I was young. This was one of my first campaigns. The PCs kept marching forward. I captured them, and tortured them, and then...

    Green Ronin's Sword Chronicle Now Available

    The glaring issue with armor making you easier to hit thereby making you more susceptible to damage has been addressed. The Armor Penalty now only impacts your movement and Agility-based actions. I was not really familiar with the system and I'm intrigued by the idea of using Abilities as a...

    Besides D&D, what are you playing?

    HERO 6e post-apocalypse (Torg, Rifts, and Cthulhu write a screenplay with Christopher Nolan directing...). The setting is a home-brew creation of a brilliant mind and GM. Having a blast playing in it. I'm running a Stars Without Number sandbox where a lost colony, facing the destruction of...
