Re: Q/A With the Trolls

Since they put the Borderhounds RPG into Free RPG Day 2017 (the gem of the lot lot me), does this mean they have some upcoming plans for releasing adventures for the 'game?'

Is there news somewhere I'm not seeing?

Re: Brimstone and the Borderhounds Kickstarter

I picked up the 2017 Free RPG DAY booklet and am interested. It reminds me a bit of Gantz. I can't find a lot of current info on it. What's the scoop? After my enjoyment of Spellcraft & Swordplay I'm willing to see more Vey work.

Re: Fantasy Writing

Been around. Decided to not accept offers to publish as they did not provide enough return to matter. I've seen my name in print as author. That's all I ever wanted. The fact that I got to work alongside Gary at times... well, that's even better. It was fun working with that man. What little I did....

Re: What other rpgs do you like to play?

I should probably downsize. I have a whole shelf of games I don't really like or simply doubt I'll ever try or try again. Still, it's hard. I like my gaming collection despite some of it being boxed in the basement. Lately started pulling out Kobold's Ate My Baby 1e (never tried any of their later e...

Re: First Aid (Spell) & Disease

So, for First Aid to have benefits beyond halting a character from bleeding out, one would need to integrate general infections to untreated wounds.... It would also add to a secondary skill in Healing.

Re: Finally got Hackmaster 5th edition...

What I enjoyed from 4e was the amusing parody effect. The 2e stuff I mostly removed (specialist casters and the like) but I enjoyed the feel. Does 5e capture the same parody feel? Will 5e feel at all like D&D?

I always wished that 4e would have been revised before they moved on.

Re: Modifying attributes through training

I like the idea of very slowly increasing attributes, but I would think by about 5th level or so, this might stabilize and even start dropping. You'd have your level bonus to compensate. By slowly increasing attributes, I mean using percentage on each one and adding anywhere from 1d3 to 1d20 based o...

Re: Anyone roll ability scores btb?

Current campaign was BtB. I intended to not let them do that "place your stats wherever you want them" but didn't realize it was in there until the characters were made. In the end, no one has any high stats. I think the highest is 14. There are a few low stats. I personally prefer picking one of th...

First Aid (Spell) & Disease

So the First Aid spell "prevents disease." Has anyone used it like that effectively? If you're bitten by a Giant Rat and fail the Con save but have First Aid cast right away? It's a 0-level spell so it surely can't last long regarding preventative care.... Remove Disease.... 4th level if I recall co...
