Sorry to hear it. They seem to be vanishing all over. It makes me stop and appreciate my local shop, and all it has done for me.

Somebody made a clone of it awhile back that is pretty slick. It's pretty close to LA but removes the clunky terminology and is easily expandable. The PDF is free and the hard copy is pretty cheap off Lulu. perilousjourneys.com/downloads/PJrelease.pdf Can you point me to the free PDF? I could only ...

Re: Lejendary Adventures

Thanks guys, for all the insight! Lurker, I find it interesting that a skill-based system leans toward a high fantasy feel (even if it's only your opinion, it's still interesting). I've often thought skill-based systems (GURPS and RM, come immediately to mind) as low magic in feel, but again that's...

Check out the Essentials if you want to see how it works. Our group played for about 6 months. LA has some fantastic aspects. The ones I really like are: 1) the classless system (a character can be any combination of skills), and 2) the concept of skill bundles (Abilities), which rewards the player ...

One thing I wonder about with DCC is its claim to be a more Appendix N, sword and sorcery style game (one of the main reasons I bought it). Two of the main hallmarks of gameplay (the 3d6 in order mediocre stats, and the 0 level funnel of peasants with hoes and lengths of rope) seem to have very lit...

I have the PDF for this game, and I think it looks like a lot of fun. I am a fan of the unpredictability; careful metagaming seems to be thwarted. Is that the case at the table? Absolutely. If you use the character funnel, there is no metagaming for character creation at all. Whomever survives beco...

Are you kidding me? With the size of that book that's all the rules to encumbrance? Perhaps I wll get some flak for saying so, but those DCC rules for encumbrance suck. You can be rules light in your approach, but how about some simple guidelines, or a table or two? That's too vague. I hate it. ~O ...

Re: Myth & Magic (2e retro) Kickstarter

Dungeon Crawl Classics was very compelling until I learned they're using Zocchi dice.

Re: Initiative

I can still keep notes on hp and ongoing effects (although lots of times I just write the damage taken on the battlemat next to each monster)...

Re: Initiative

I have used playing cards for initiative. Just deal them out each round, and go in numerical/suit order. I kept the jokers in for a wild card (go first in the round). It is easy to do, and also easy to keep track of who goes when (no paperwork).

Re: movement and casting

I would rule that spellcasting would qualify as "unable to move" since the rule of casting does indeed state that a caster cannot move.

movement and casting

Hi, I have a question about movement and spellcasting. In the "Combat Actions" section of the PHB (p 129), it states: A character may not move any distance and cast a spell in the same round unless the spell description says otherwise. But then on the next page, in the "Movement in the Combat Round"...
