Re: Outnumbered combat rules

What do you mean by stopping the party outnumbering them too much ? Most of the creatures with multiple attacks only appear in ones or twos according to the pit books (although it's a good idea to treat those number appearing as a guide only). So the most common situations for outnumbering are: 1. ...

Re: Quasqueton Castle

You have a castle filled with with golems, fire sprites and smoke deamons... the wizard has to have studied conjouring. Sure, what I meant is summoning creatures like the demons is crossing a line with conjuration towards evil. But I like shades of grey and so I'm suggesting he might have only dabb...

Re: Outnumbered combat rules

In practice the main use of multiple attacks for creatures is to stop the party outnumbering them too much. You might want to take a look at this thread.

Re: House rule: Varying the effects of combat

When you reach zero roll 2d6 on the following table (based upon one made for D&D) I really like the concept of different results when a character runs out of STAM. Something I've been thinking for a while is it'd be great to have some effects from combat that were more long term. Breaking a leg...

Re: Quasqueton Castle

Keep them coming people! Some background on the two ex-adventurer lords of the castle, the module only hinted at what they were like. There's definitely signs they may have been allied to evil such as the leering idol in room 28. On the other hand they and their men did stop a barbarian invasion of ...

Re: a question on certin talent stacking

Graham tends to be a bit busy so you might have to make do with opinions. Swashbuckler says "This Talent allows an unarmoured Hero to reduce the damage from attacks" and Armour Training "A Hero with this Talent is well used to wearing armour, and getting the best protection from it&qu...

Re: Quasqueton Castle

Wondering if a fastidious gnome obsessed with tending his mushrooms would be good for the garden room? :) Yeah I like AFF gnomes, the whole grumpy guy with magical powers thing. He could definitely scare off other inhabitants that wandered in. I also see them as often being a bit eccentric so they ...

Re: Quasqueton Castle

Thanks guys! I wanted to split out the room notes from the encounter ideas I've already had. So I've moved those here and added a bit more info to the first post. 3. Dining Room - This is now the home of the remaining orc slaves. No one tells them what to do any more but they see no reason to go els...

Quasqueton Castle

My latest project is a complete rework of the maps for the old D&D module B1 In Search of the Unknown. I'd always thought you wouldn't really want to live in a stronghold with no windows like that so it's redone as a castle based loosely on the real Krak des Chevaliers. This was my first serious...

Re: Merry Christmas

A merry Christmas from down under as well!

That pesky work stuff has been getting in the way of me posting here lately, but things should be better in the New Year and I do have one small project I should finish over the break to share with everyone.

Sounds interesting but it probably makes more sense once you've read the books... which I haven't :)

Another variation might be Awareness only applies to avoiding being surprised by an attacker and other skills are used for everything else.

Re: Port of Peril

Yep agree the small images are the worst of it. Pen and ink illustrations just look better for black and white than something done in colour and then greyscaled. Don't know what they were thinking.

Re: Port of Peril

My copy finished making it's way down under today. I'd say the art is more unsuitable than bad, it's very cartoony. But I'm still hoping it really is written by Ian and he had time to give us another like the classics.
