The rules for the sorcery system are on the main Barsoom website, but you can grab them here.

They're notably unusable and tend to make sorcerers anti-social, psychotic freakazoids that everybody hates.

Fa is an exception, but give her time.

Psionics were taken straight from the book.

Next game I MAY change the rules -- I picked up Mutants and Masterminds and am considering morphing it into a wuxia-style game and kicking up the action level a notch next episode.

We'll see.
Ah, so you've kind of taken a Dark Sun approach to things.

More action? Geez, I thought you had enough ;-) M&M is a beauty of a game, and well-suited to this kind of thing. My own personal pref would be BESM.

Yeah, only Dark Sun was too easy so I made things even nastier.

One of the nice side-effects turned out to be that undead make the best sorcerers of all -- so anyone serious about magic use tends to tranform themselves into some form of undead horror as soon as they figure out how.

So where are you, anyway? (I know, I know...Barsoom)
Beautiful downtown Vancouver, British Columbia. Outside my office window right now I can watch low clouds scrape along the peaks of the Coast Mountains.

Barsoom, that magic page, which I hadn't looked at in a long time, seems to have a formatting error of some kind. I think you're missing a line break up at the beginning.

?

Some questions:

1. What browser/OS?
2. Do you see the navigation header ("B", "The World", "The Tale", "The People")?
3. Do you see the Dungeons and Dragons logo with the link to WotC?
4. Is the first line of text the header "Magic"?

Oh and I'd just like to point out that a Story Hour that got completed on the FIRST PAGE is now on its third.

Talk ourselves into absurdity? Us?

1. Both IE and Netscape 6.0 (? -- I think that's the version) in Windows 2000.
2. In IE I do, not in Netscape.
3. Yes, although I wasn't aware it was a link. ;)
4. Yes, but there's no break between the D&D logo and the header, so the header just sticks out to the right of the logo in both browsers (and at at least two different resolutions -- 800 x 600 and 1024 x 768.

Sorry, turns out it's in Netscape 4.7 -- I didn't realize it was so old (I rarely use it.) IE is 5 at work, 6 I believe at home. In fact, the Netscape 4.7 page looks absolutely dreadful; lines in all the wrong places and all kinds of things. Not that that concerns me personally, as I don't browse with that browser in real life.

Hm. Interesting that N 4.7's css support is so bad.

However, I do notice that the D&D img has a leftover "align=left" tag that ought to be taken out -- that might be causing the weird header behaviour. Which I have just confirmed in IE Win. Mozilla Firebird looks okay.

I never test the site in anything other than what I use, and let my players catch errors in whatever THEY use, but the site is definitely not very robust in its browser support.

I'm lazy. Whaddya want? :D

I have to say, one of the coolest and most beautiful cities I've ever visited. Gloomy at times, but all the flowers make up for the lack of sun
:p

Hey now! Them's fighting words.

I'll let you take it up with Tong Shan. Quite a patriot, she is. I'm sure she'd be willing to, em, edumacate yourself about the proper respect due to Tianese cooking.

Maybe Willie's charming enough. Maybe he isn't. ;)

Ah, yes, but either way he carries a really big gun... :eek:
