Deepnight Revelation

I can be a little less cryptic now, it seems. I expect to finish up Skandersvik (the 96-page campaign book that was supposed to be a simple Sword Worlds adventure) at the beginning of next week and begin work in earnest on Deepnight Revelation. What, you expect me to tell you what that's about? Okay...

As to the ship, yes, it's an indigenous design.

Re: Plying the Bowman Arm, and more

I on the other hand am plagued by a malfunctioning carbon monxide alarm, using my old glasses because my new indestrucitble ones... destructed. And my foot hurts because I tried to kick Nate in the face and he parried my instep with the shell guard of a gymansium sabre. That one we might consider se...

Plying the Bowman Arm, and more

Right now I'm finishing up a big adventure/campaign book to go alongside the Sword Worlds book. It concerns the adventures of a Sword Worlder merchant cruiser in Five Sisters and District 268. And at the same time we're finalising the design details for another big project. Really big. As in, you th...

Re: Melee Rules for 'Fighting Dirty'

Some sword disarms are performed simply by striking the weapon. A downward swipe from a high Portuguese guard into seconde can work, as can a heavy beat from tierce to seconde. In both cases you have to strike the mezzo correctly, and both are relatively easy to deceive. It can work though. In gener...

Re: How to stop luck ruining the game

The results mentioned could not occur without loaded dice or a habit of finding reasons why that roll did not count until you get one you like. I've seen the latter a few times before. It can become habit to the point of not realising you're doing it. So can outright cheating. If it's not one of tho...

Seriously... can you please think about what you're asking of people? Folks here wil help you out if you don't take the lend.

I have always assumed the stanadrd is life support with the suit open, but you wear a vacc suit as well. A suit feed would also work.

Re: Is their any point to all of the finale?

Once again.... You and all these friends of yours are trying to play at a level the original writers did not conceive. The finale (and the rest ogf the adventure) assumes a handful of ships scraped together, at most. If you're going to play at his level, that's your choice, but your players are so g...

Re: What rank would the leader hold

It does get irritating when either the question is changed after someone has provided an answer or it is apparently ignored and another question that is difficucult to answer for the same reasons (which have been pointed out) appears a little later. It's like the answers aren't being read.

What MJD is writing for Mongoose Next

Right now I'm working on... something... that's pretty epic. But I don't know whether I'm supposed to talk about it yet. So all I'll say is that it ties in with the Great Rift set and it's pretty epic. I think it's OK to talk about what I just finished writing. That would be the Sword Worlds book th...

Re: What rank would the leader hold

Why not read a decent book on military organisation? That way you'll know what sort of rank commands what sort of force.
