Re: Atmosphere

We tend to avoid background noise, as we get older it gets more and more difficult to hear over background noise. When PCs enter a place, I give a very quick rundown. "You come into a cave, the walls are a grey slick rock with water running down into a stream that fills the back of the cave", with o...

Re: If Heaven is Norwich, hell is...

I don't know anything about Neverwinter, but that premise would work.

the PCs are shipwrecked and attacked by small groups of undead. They see a city in the distance and probably head towards it for safety.

Works for me.

Re: What levels would you suggest?

A friend asked me to ask here, so I may be on the wrong site, what level's you suggest for The Pcs to be for the final battle with The Campaigns big bad and actual levels for him. Also he's wrote A RPG that's A Legends and Edition 3.5 DAD Hybrid so it sort of counts Legend normally does not have le...

Re: What means would guarantee The Pcs keep their word?

Nothing. As a lawyer once said "A verbal agreement isn't worth the paper it's written on". However, it is a good roleplaying opportunity. The freed slaves, who are presumably now PCs, would be able to argue for their fair share of loot, especially if they have fought in combats or have contributed i...

Re: State of Legend

Earlier in the thread it was mentioned that Mongoose seems to be focusing on mainly non-fantasy, focusing on sci-fi settings. Just look at how nice Traveller is! Why not run with it? Wouldn't it be nice if Legend was revived with d100 Traveller material?! Would that be possible, even? Why would Mon...

Re: State of Legend

I was looking at doing 'Portuguese conquestador' style games. Is the renaissance version worth looking at or shall I just wing it with the legend rules? I'm well up on the historical and arms for the period, just looking for extra 'flavour' really. Renaissance would be good, but Pirates of Legend h...

Re: Spells of Legend

Not so sure about Battle Cry and Bladesharp, Battle Cry affects the person and Bladesharp affects the weapon.

I'd make Battle Cry incompatible with Fanaticism and Berserker, but allow it to be used with Bladesharp.

Re: RPGs similar to Deus Vult?

I'm Italian, and when I was a boy I learned to read English through RPGs, so the idea of using games written in some foreign language is quite familiar to me. In fact, I plan to play Aquelarre from the Spanish edition and Miles Christi from the French original; however, I'm much less familiar with ...

Re: RPGs similar to Deus Vult?

What a pity! Can you elaborate on the contents of these books? If I understand correctly, Age of Chivalry was a new, expanded edition of Age of Eleanor. How much of RH contents is superimposable to these older books? The Age of Eleanor http://www.soltakss.com/merrieengland/ME_AOE_TOC.TXT and Age of...

Re: RPGs similar to Deus Vult?

Thank you for the info on your book(s); I'm an old customer of Alephtar, I like their games very much, so I'll definitely try Robyn Hode! However, when I tried to find it (and Age of Eleanor and Age of Chivalry) on the web I found nothing: - The links in your "buy it" page (http://www.soltakss.com/...

Is there news on any of this? We are now in June, so its 6 months. Alex Green and Solatask had Legend books with Mongoose so is there news on what is happening with them?
My update was in April, so I expect to be stalled again in October.

It is a continuation of the Merrie England series (Age of Eleanor and Age of Chivalry) but ported to Robyn Hode. A third is general Medieval England Background, a third is rules and a third is for the Robyn ...

Re: How to run a siege ?

Work out how much food and water the beseiged have and how many days this will last. See if the beseiged have a way of replenishing food and water, if so stopping them would be a scenario. If they have deep wells/ large cisterns then water might be OK, but food might be an issue. Find a way to get s...

Re: Hoping For New Legend Books In 2017

I have heard back from Matthew. Mongoose won't have any capacity to look at Legend for at least another 6 months, due to Traveller and Paranoia commitments. After that, it's a question of wait and see, I think, as they still might not have the capacity. However, they are still keen on publishing Leg...

Re: Hoping For New Legend Books In 2017

I will ask about the legend supplements that I have submitted.

Unless the answer is confidential, I will let you know, if confidential then I will let you know that.

Hopefully there will still be an appetite to publish Legend material.

Re: Fatigue in Combat

I just wouldn't say that reloading or drawing weapons counts as heavy work. Isn't Do Nothing a combat action, so if you are in combat and choose not to do anything, then you still effectively spend CAs not doing anything? That wouldn't cause fatigue either. Running around, evading, attacking and par...
