Re: Save For Half episode # 18 1/2: ÒNorth Texas RPG Con 201

Oh, you should! NTRPGC is an awesome con, especially if you don't want to be lost in a crowd. Like I said on the show, there's enough people that if you like you can always find a game but few enough that you can just walk up to any of the guests and start chatting. ;)

Re: Save For Half episode 18 “James Bond: 007 by Victory Gam

Thanks, and I agree about c&ping stuff from the movies. After all, how many of us did that for TS anyway? :D As I think I might've said in the podcast (been at NTRPGC since then) it seems like the Doctor Who RPG again. That is, someone gets to play the Doctor/00X and the rest "get" to ...

Let us know what you think...?

Also, (and this came up in the show) did you ever run any original adventures or did you just run the modules/movies?

Re: Tomb of Horrors

If your players are combat monsters, don't run it for them. There's actually rather little combat in the adventure, as most of it is puzzles or traps that take very specific means (ie not just a FART roll) to disable/overcome. To repeat what was said above, EGG wrote it as a reply to the "My ch...
