I've never heard a player complaining about violence against their opponents before.

<t>OK, a few particulars about the campaign setting and my house rules (as minimal as they are):<br/> <br/> -As you may have noticed, damage from guns is infinite.

<t>The only problem I see with the first concept is that Queen Victoria was a werewolf (it's common knowledge) and a werewolf ninja is overpowered. <br/> <br/> As to clergy, a chaplain is a very viable option, as is a user of clerical magic. However, magic use by the clergy is almost unheard of. The...

That sounds like real fun. Do you have any story hooks embedded if the players want to try something outside of dungeon crawling?

No prob, Tree.

Before we started the game, I was going to mention that I started a thread to get ready for the next TNI game.
