Do me a favor?

Postby JMISBEST » Wed Jun 12, 2019 12:49 pm

Can someone do me a favor?. Please

I've been doing grammar in my unique way for years but have realized recently that people that don't know me have trouble with it even though I can't grasp why. Can you please give advise on how to correct it in a way that the people on this site can understand?. Thank you

It's not grammar that's the problem here.

As I have repeatedly stated, the problem is that you write in extremely long and confused sentences.

Misplaced punctuation is of little consequence if you try to write in an easily readable format.

Write in short sentences, one thought at a time. Put line breaks in between.

It helps. Really.

I agree (though do not go too short as then the sentences are too simplistic). Also, put the posts in the right places - so do not ask about d20 games in a d100 system forum.

You will find people here are very happy to discuss things with you, but it gets frustrating when questions are asked in the wrong places.

Sorry I wrongly but honestly thought that Legend was A vastly improved Variant of DAD just like the way that back in the late 80's(or was it mid 80's?) ADAD was A vastly improved Variant of DAD

Sorry about that I'm trying to correct myself and trying to stop writing in extremely long and confusing sentences, but I've been doing it that way for many years and am struggling

We all make mistakes, it's not a problem.

D&D is a D20 system where the aim is to get as high a number as possible.
Legend is RuneQuest II which is a D100 system where the aim is to get as low a number as possible.

They both have Attributes and Skills, so in that they are similar.

D&D magic is cantrips or spells, whether that is from a God, or not.
Legend magic is effectively personal/godly/sorcery (Common/Divine/Sorcery) with subsets of that such as blood/animalistic.

D&D is Level based for character progression.
Legend is Story and Skill improvement progression (at the end of a story you can progress).

There are other differences, but I think these are the biggest.
