I've kept my Conan game quite simple, but the Traveller campaign I run is a complex web of conspiracies, plots and political agendas mixed up in a mess of lies and secrets. It made the world much more lively when I actually got players for the background powers as well - so that instead of wonderin...

As to the tower crumbling, Yog Kasha was forced to create it as a slave. I always considered its destruction a willful act of his, to lay waste to the product of his torment. If that's the case, e.g., through his death, then the PCs could just kill him and split, and the tower would crumble down an...

What I think will happen is that we'll get rules for, say, brewing healing potions and poisons but no Herbalist or Alchemist professions and no add-on skills for healers and suchlike. Then in another supplement we'll get rules for some other types of potion, but not antidotes and perhaps a Legendar...

The cover is an important part of any book, as is the cover of a CD, DVD or any other product. Else, why put any cover at all ? Remember that it's the first thing a customer will see, and hopefully not the only thing he'll ever see. And honestly, the one we're talking about is really not something t...

Isn't there some program online where you take an image and get it to come out as a large mural, printing each 8.5x11 page to assemble it? Most professional printers or copiers can do that on the fly in modifying the print options (on the PC). I used that trick at work to enlarge an hexgrid from on...

I'm sorry, my reply was not that clear to say the least... Hum. I don't really like the fact that you spend your "reaction" before knowing the attack is hiting you. After all, it's the only way to survive against multiple opponents (hoping they don't all hit). This was aimed at the rule on the wiki....

Re: First Impressions.

The problem is that that odds of getting a 12 or lower vs. 13 or higher are roughly equal when you roll 4d6 and drop the lowest for DEX. So roughly half the PCs will have 2 actions and the other half will have 3 actions, and that alone will determine many battles regardless of skill and experience....

combat question

Hi all, sorry if this has already been posted but I can't find the answer: how is it possible to achieve a failed roll from the attacker on the reaction table knowing that reaction occurs only if the attack is succesfull and that the attacker is using the same result (he's not rerolling) as stated i...
