Re: Map making program

No that's a new one on me. Something's wrong with that link but I was able to find it easy enough with a search. The sample maps look pretty good. The second to last one in black and white has Dyson Logos style cross hatch fill!

Re: sneak in chain and plate

There is a gap there but my opinion is the Dodging penalties in the rulebook work for sneaking. Or if using my expanded Modifiers Table then it'd be Acrobatics (I made the Dodging penalties less harsh for the reasons given in the thread). I'll update my table to say "Acrobatics and Sneaking".

Dice Men

This might be interesting to some here, Steve and Ian have a book they're trying to fund about the early years of the hobby in the UK. Hardback only so not cheap but should be a good read.

Re: SkinnyOrc's Notebook

Nice, I'm reading your take on the well. I figured if I got it all up there people would find stuff they missed first time around. That one I think is a lot of fun. You get to run all these random, slightly odd, interesting and sometimes lethal encounters. But in the end you can limit the real cons...

Re: SkinnyOrc's Notebook

My website has had an update to add the new material I've been posting here.

I notice reading up I was told almost a year and a half ago my random generators didn't work on all browsers any more. Which I got around to fixing a few weeks back...

Re: A new (non-AFF) Arion Games Kickstarter

Thanks for the info. Maybe another time the level description could say something like "This level will get you the pdf copy as above, but will also get you a code to enable you to order a print copy at cost price from RPGNow as soon as the printers have approved that". But I guess a lot of people a...

Re: A new (non-AFF) Arion Games Kickstarter

I backed this and so did a lot of other people, it's currently over 3 times the target! I got PDF only but I'm curious what the story is with print copies with them being print on demand. If you're paying for printing and shipping on top of the Kickstarter pledge what are you getting for the extra 4...

Good thing you mentioned this one, I'd forgotten it wasn't included in the Maelstrom bundle of holding. I also picked up Tales of the Village to play with my five year old (yeah I might need to wait a little).

I took the opportunity to pick up all the Atlantis episodes, The Floating Dungeon of Varrak Aslur and Inn of Lost Hope. Thanks and happy birthday! :)

Re: Changing Magic Characteristic to Lore

There are some probs fitting this into the points buy char gen system. The simplest is probably to say you can base knowledge tests on either SKILL or LORE, whichever is higher, and then leave char gen as it is with MAGIC/LORE starting at 0. You can look on this as a SKILL based knowledge test being...

Re: God generator

This is also great for a normal Titan campaign. For that I wouldn't have them available to meet and fight but the stats still flesh out what people think they're like.

I could maybe do this, I've got access to Acrobat through work. Can you point me at one (for whatever system) as an example?

Re: Magic-Minor and Magic Points

This is from the AFF2 rulebook errata PDF:

Page 33: Final Paragraph
Should read: “A Hero receives 2 MP for every point in the
MAGIC characteristic and Magic-Wizardry special skills.“

Not sure where the errata doc can be found these days, it used to be on the Arion Games website.
