    Magical Magic

    I've been working on a little rules plugin that attempts to make magic a little more magical. Seems like magic in books and films always has little clauses, where a blood mage's spells hit a little less against those that refuse to spill blood, or something like that. So I wrote up some rules...

    [Iron Heroes]Nixing the last x/day ability, Mana

    I'm loving Iron Heroes so far. Got it yesterday, and I've read a good bit so far. I'm happy to be rid of x/day abilities, replacing them with tokens.

    So, in the game I get to run once every few months when I go home, my players came up with a brilliant plan for reviving the 'dead' god from one of the Demiplanes (exact name escapes me) in the DM's Guide to Demiplanes by Ronin Arts.
