    Domains At War: Gunpowder (Hey, Steampunkers! Early Modernists!)

    I am not an author, just a backer. Haven't posted in a long time, but a few things, including my kids being old enough to game, drew me back into the RPG world. Autarch's Domains At War is $700 away from adding Gunpowder and all that assorted goodness to its mass combat rules, with only 55...

    Alternate Intimidate

    So, read some sword & sorcery (this, in fact, highly recommended: Swords And Dark Magic), plus rewatched the extended LotRs, starting to get myself back into the right mindset to run a game. This, about 1:17 in: Gandalf w/ Bilbo That's Intimidate using your Base Magic Bonus, which is now my...

    Overclassed Multiclassing

    So! First post in about 6 years. The band's getting back together, and by that I mean the gaming group on hiatus once we all started having kids is now getting those kids in a room to play. Trying out Trailblazer! The parental units are resurrecting their characters from before, and I've got...

    2E Legends & Lore; University Theology

    I work at a university, and my wife's been taking classes there this summer. She IM'd me middle of the day, and said she had a computational biologist lecturing her class. He'd just made a analogy comparing the randomness of a certain gene sequencing problem he works with to rolling dice, like...

    Dragonborn: Large Kobolds

    Dragonborn: Large (noble?) Kobolds. Think about how that will work. Same undercurrent of evil as Tieflings, same possiblity of redemption during a PC career. (ignoring for now the metallic dragons, and keeping dragonborn merely as a medium-sized Kobold) In a world where dragons *are* more...

    Oriental Adv. Kusari-Gama

    I'm hoping there's a statute of limitations on asking for something out of such an old book. Anyone have the stats on the Kusari-Gama from Oriental Adventures? It's the ball/sickle spiked-chain sort of thing? (double weapon without reach, single weapon with reach) I've gotten as far as this...

    Hirelings of Advanced Level

    Are there any rules buried about for the expected payouts of hirelings of advanced levels? I'd assume the SRD's "Hireling, Trained . 3 sp/day" is meant for 1st level NPC classes. I'm looking more along the lines of NPC or PC classes scaled up through 5th level, perhaps. My first instinct is...

    Design/Font change on Thread Page links?

    Did the design or font size or something on the "Pages" part of the thread (you know, where it lists Page 1,2,3,4,5... after the title and at the bottom of the page) change this weekend? It looks fine in a GUI browser; and the HTML source looks fine as well. It's no longer showing up on...

    Stacking Blur and Mirror Image

    Seems a newbie question, but here we go: If Blur and Mirror Image stack, then how? Is each Mirror Image Blurred; giving it a 20% miss chance? Does each Mirror Image merely *look* Blurred (because the target of the spell is) and the 20% miss chance only come into play when the atual target is...

    UA Recharge Magic, Years Later (vs Warlock, et. al.)

    I've used Recharge magic from UA before, and we tempered it then by adding in a Vitality aspect, so that eventually my wizard would run out of steam. Does it seem as outlandish as it once did now that classes like the Warlock or whomever with 'At Will' or 'Always On' abilities can "go all day"...

    Swift Concentration (C. Scoundrel), Call Lightning

    One of my players asked me such: Does Swift Concentration from Complete Scoundrel (allowing you to concentrate on a spell as a swift action) apply to the druid spell Call Lightning? The text of Call Lightning says: Concentration on any other spell which requires it is also a standard action...

    Druid with Spirit Shaman casting

    I've been talking about the Spirit Shaman with a player, and how it fits with his concept. (and the world; the "Spirit" powers don't seem as universally useful at first glance) Assuming that SS Casting == Sorc Casting == Druid Casting, replacing the Druid casting with the Spirit Shaman system...

    Replacing Nightmare (5th) effect with other spells

    --------------- SKIP all this, and go down to my second post, I've reworded the question into a better answerable form! --------------- This is somewhat half-formed, so bear with me. Dream is 5th level: Casting Time 1 minute Range: Unlimited Save/SR: None, Yes Duration: Varies Project...

    Feats for Fire Creatures?

    We're starting a new game, and one of my players is wanting to play a barbarian which comes from a tribe that worships fire/fire creatures/whatever. He also wants some fire-based powers, so I'm first thinking of some spellcaster multiclass. However, I find the "Blazing Berserker" feat in...

    Class Features via Point Buy? (looking for old thread?)

    There was a thread discussing (or promoting a book) some time ago about a conversion detailing all the class features and whatnot in a 'point buy' sort of system - I've totally lost track of what it was called/titled - if anyone is able to point me in the right direction. Thankya! Koewn

    Walking a Wall of Fire

    Has there ever been discussion on what happens if you walk along the "burning line" of a Wall of Fire? I'd tossed down a couple short ones last weekend in a dungeon, catching opponents in them, and occasionally the only way out was "down the line". Due to space limitations, they could extract...

    [blatant whoring] Forget what size category your child is?

    I don't think my daughter (size Tiny) actually has a penalty to grapple. (either that, or I took a Flaw involving my grapple score). Good stuff either way.

    So, if you've accepted the Warlock's 9d6 Eldritch Blast; what if it healed?

    What if a modification of the Warlock class turned it's Eldritch Blast mechanic into, basically, Cure X Wounds, so that at first level, a melee touch would heal it's target of 1d8 damage, up to 9d8 at 20th? Should it be kept at Xd6? Would a ray be OK? Will anyone respond; as the ones most...
