Re: What should I run next?

One thing I was thinking of doing was having you guys pull out your old highest level characters, and run you through the BECMI series, starting with Test of the Warlords. Probably end with Death's Ride. Sounds like fun. never played any of them (or really, anything in mystara, I think). Always wan...

Re: Victorious will be next...

I wasn't taking it as a criticism, just telling you how I define a balanced encounter. I've never really seen a balanced supers game. Maybe M&M tried it but there seemed to be loopholes. I did play in a fun game of Wild Talents where we played characters who were among the first to turn into superh...

And here is a brief snippet from a passerby. Father McGarrity was troubled, and when he was troubled, he took Napoleon for a walk. The bulldog was always eager for a chance to amble through his territory, serenely nodding to the obeisance of the local folks and local mutts. Occasionally, he would pa...

A mail hauberk +1 will give me +6 to my AC.

Obviously they are abstractions and shouldn't really stack, but the sword does have to penetrate the chain mail AND the leather. It's not totally loony for them to stack and give you a dexterity of 3 and weigh what they both weigh + an unwieldiness penalty. Back when I first played, none of us owne...

Tree, just curious, what year were you supposing the game would take place in? Pre-Civil War, post-Civil War? Just trying to figure out my concept a little more. R- Good question!

Re: Victorious will be next...

I've been thinking about my character concept. I'm strongly leaning toward something like Batman or Hawkeye. Basically, a normal human with an abnormal skill set that allows him to hang with the "Supers" of the world. Though, as of this writing, I am leaning more toward the Hawkeye concept (spy/ass...
