For anyone playing Ars Magica over Fantasy Grounds, let me introduce a little project of mine...

I have tried to make it somewhat version agnostic to make sure that it'd be as useful as possible for everyone.  There are a few changes from the RAW. The Wild-Die instead of throwing botch-dice will keep rolling negative rolls downwards (easier to deal with from a LUA standapoint).

The combat tracker is going to get two alternative counts on it one with our houserules attatched (the current one) and one rules as written version choosable from the preferences. But truth to be told it is a work in progress in my rather sparse free time so it might be a while before it is brought entirely in line with the basic Ars Magica rules. I will try to supply a manual for it with the next release though.

Start your Fantasy Grounds launcher, click the Application Data folder, then drop the Arm.pak file into the rulesets sub directory. 

Then just create a new campaig choosing Arm as the ruleset.

I agree Warhammer is overall the best looking.

This is a really great article about the word Daesh, about what it means (or doesn't) and the actual reasons using it is delegitimizing to the group also known as ISIS or ISIL. 

I'm keeping an eye on this conversation.

https://www.freewordcentre.com/blog/2015/02/daesh-isis-media-alice-guthrie/
Arabic translator Alice Guthrie explains how Daesh, the new name for ISIS, undermines the terrorist group, and asks why anglophone media can't understand it.

Just wanted to share my note-setup for Ars Magica lately. Symbol lexicons and notebook (transcribing the spells from the basic book into the notebook one / page as a maximum. ).

I first design up the individual pages in Publisher as I use the spells for my characters or NPCs before. Printing and then scribing it over. This will hopefully eventually become the go-to book for my group as we look for spells. The book itself can take additional pages being added which will help with keeping it alphabetical. Worst case scenario I end up cutting the pages out re-binding them if that doesn't look good. Either way it will be one authentic looking book for the game.

Working together with Dragkhar from the IRC-Chat we have spun out a an alternative to my old FGWiki.

The idea is that we will try to obtain posting-rights for the older rulesets and try to get updated versions of them out there.

What is roleplaying?
 
Well think of it as an expanded form of the telling of old folktales. Only here you all take part of it, each of you taking on a role. In my example we could follow a group of children or adolescents as they curiously explore the ruins of an old building outside of the place they live. The Storyteller will place obstacles in front of the players to let them solve and most of all choose how to solve them. Perhaps one of the choices will be how to enter the ruins, will the most nimble of them climb up the ivy on the outside to a broken old window? Will the strongest of them crack and break the wooden door gone grey and brittle with age?
As the players make choices the Storyteller presents them with consequences of their choices. Perhaps breaking through the door leaves the big and heavy stronger character stumbling into the stairwell behind. Falling into the darkness to lie groaning further down into the shadows. Who will go to his aid? Will they go to his aid? And once again how? Perhaps they retrieve their fallen comrade and go home to the village their lust for adventure sated for ever more. Or will they push on as their injured comrade finds his injuries to be minor due to his tough physique? If they do push on, who and what might they find living in the tower? And what is their reaction to this? Will they destroy the inhabitants and steal all they hold dear and think themselves heroes because of it? Or will they stay their hand and ask themselves by what right they kill and plunder?
Roleplaying is all about choices and their consequences, the dice are there to add some randomness and risk to the decisions. But most of all it is the latest form of the old art of storytelling. This is what we do. This is what I do. And it is ever entertaining, ever facing interesting questions and choices. And paying the consequences of them.

Some of us think annoying, repetitive posts are the original definition of spam.  (In the context of online discussions.  A canned ham-like product is, of course, the original original definition.  Bloody vikings.)

I Finally got both time and money so I splurged on Elite Dangerous. I realize this might lead to the purchase of a new joystick. The old one I have was bought in a second-hand store and is fairly lacking.

It looks great, but I am going back to University for a medical degree so no MMO anything for me. I hope you have great fun though.

Example spell pages how they might look in Publisher before I print and then try to copy to the book.

I try to change the fonts about to try and get the impression that pages have been written by various people and at different times. I also try to add to this effect by using different pens and inks.  (I have two Schaeffer pens with brown and black ink respectively) and a pilot with a wide range of ink casettes.
