Re: Q/A With the Trolls

I was informed to post this question here where the big trolls play: Dear Trolls, I bought the M&T 2nd ($15.95) and PHB 3rd pdfs ($10) in mid to late 2008 on DrivethruRPG and I am wondering if there is a way to upgrade the purchased pdfs to the new releases?

Re: My houserule site is moving

ADD3 sure is tickling my fancy. I printed up a couple locally on 80 lb paper and had them comb bound (I printed out the prime version a year or so ago and had them bound with a paper cover as well) and I have to say the books rock! Comb binding seem to be better than the paper binding I had before. ...

Re: Myth & Magic RPG

M&M has implemented a unifying mechanic called Base20, which seems not that far off from the Siege Engine, but based on increments of 5. It may be have some differences though. Some of the revisions they have made since the last document seem to be pretty cool, but I can't keep up with them actually...

Re: My houserule site is moving

Wow, the UA has changed ALOT since I printed it out in 2008! I really like the new content and am curious what you hope to add to it. If possible random encounter tables would be a nice addition. I can't recall if the 2e MM has such tables, if not, then placing them in the UA would be best. Having/c...

Re: My houserule site is moving

One final question. How do you handle primse for monsters, especially with saving throws. I know in the past you told me that AD&D3 is best suited for C&C critters, but with the advent of the removal of primes, how does this affect using the M&T and such. Keeping primes at +5 or +6 makes them too st...

Re: My houserule site is moving

Chris, I really believe your new primeless system is special. The 1e TSR material is extra icing on the cake to me (started with 2e myself). Even though your system is strong enough to fully stand on its own I can understand why you have yet to really promoted it. Being lowkey has its advantages. Th...

Re: Myth & Magic RPG

I too have some small reservations about the proficiency system at the moment, but we should give them the benefit of the doubt and of course they welcome critic...
