I was too sick to do much real work today, but not enough to stay in bed. So I spent some time hacking the D3 rules (a soon to be published game about troubled Detroit cops by +Cédric Ferrand​​​​ and +Sebastien Delfino​​​​) to run a dungeon crawl playtest.

As it turns out it'll be more of a point crawl, as the (purposely blurry) shot shows. I really like that I didn't have to stat up anything: all I did was listing possible events, encounters and treasure for every location. The Adversity pool should take care of the rest.

C'est pas du travail hein... Même si j'apprends plein de trucs en faisant jouer le module B4 en bac à sable. À une quinzaine de joueurs en ligne. Avec un système qui se construit au fur et à mesure.
Bon okay, c'est du travail :)

There's a 99% chance that I will be speaking at Orc'Idée in Lausanne, Switzerland this spring. I've been looking forward to going back to this amazing convention for years and I'm thrilled. Also, CERN!

Tonight I've played Moldvay D&D for the first time in close to 30 years! +Mickael BEHOLDER​​ ran The Transmuter's Last Touch for +Christophe BREYSSE​​, +franck vander eeckt​​ and I. We had great fun coming up with clever ways to beat a band of magically enhanced kobolds hiding in an evil temple. Between Into the Odd and this, I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to the later editions.

Sans doute - les rétroclones et autres jeux OSR sont souvent revus avec un moteur plus simple d'emploi. Ils sont aussi mieux présentés/organisés.
Ceci dit, je ne pense pas que je maîtriserais à un clone d'Ad&d 1 ou 2. Basic/LotFP représente ma limite de complexité.

A character sheet as a mind map... Very nice design.
 
Saw this 5e sheet over on Reddit from /u/hphammacher and while I don't see myself using it, I was immediately intrigued by the design.

Playstorm Donjons & D3 jeudi 5 mars

+Sebastien Delfino et moi cherchons deux ou trois joueurs pour tester son système Ombrage conçu pour faire de la série policière dans un univers de +Cédric Ferrand (et paraissant en ce moment dans Casus) mais dans un cadre dark et donjonesque. 

Pourquoi ? D'une part pour pousser le système dans ses retranchements, et d'autre part parce qu'on pense qu'il est conçu pour mettre la pression sur les PJs et pousser leur part d'ombre. Et quoi de mieux pour mettre la pression qu'un souterrain plein de morts-vivants qui cherchent à vous bouffer ? 

Au programme, rapide création de persos, suivie d'un aller simple dans un souterrain plein d'horreurs infâmes. Ce sera vraisemblablement un one-shot.

Planar events in the dungeon

Quick procedure while I'm on the bus:

.Drop 1d20 and 1d6 on the dungeon map.
.Primary location where the d20 landed, secondary where the d6 landed. If d20=d6, there is a portal between both locations.
.Duration is d6 days if d20<d6, otherwise it's d20 hours.
.Read the type of event on the d6 (1 monster, 2 inhabitant, 3 weather/athmospheric, 4 psionic, 5 mutations, 6 portal).
.Read the plane of origin on the d20 (1 Air, 2 Water, 3 Earth, 4 Fire, 5 Magma, 6 Smoke, 7 Ice, 8 Ooze, 9 Radiance, 10 Steam, 11 Lightning, 12 Mineral, 13 Void, 14 Ash, 15 Dust, 16 Salt, 17 Positive, 18 Negative, 19 Ether, 20 Time).

EDIT : Il y aura aussi une campagne Ulule avec des bonus, si vous pouvez attendre.

When my publisher emailed last night saying the novel would be on preorder from the 23rd, I didn't realise it was today... So here you go, please give us your money: http://www.legrimoire.net/store/fr/romans-mille-saisons/200-l-archipel-des-nuees.html

Help! Major dice probabilities headache

Can any of you point me to an easy to use probabilities generator? I need to look at things like how many dice beat a certain target result, and what happens if you remove dice that don't. Any help is greatly appreciated!

In more detail, the system we're working on is:
.You roll a certain amount of d6s.
.Each individual 4-6 result means a success, each 1-3 means a failure.
.You want more successes than failures.
.Your skill level lets you remove one or more failures.

I need to know if 4+ is the right target number, especially when taking into account a different kind of dice.

Hmmm, that'd be a problem indeed. I suppose we could tweak this with successes from 5+, but I don't think it'd entirely remove the zigzagging. 
Good thing we're just starting designing the engine. 
Thanks, +Grey Knight!

Il reste deux places pour participer à l'exploration d'une pyramide mise à jour par une tempête de sable, et décidément très peuplée...

Il s'agit du module B4 pour D&D Basic, joué avec un système plus simple et plus souple (Into the Odd). On joue sur Roll20 entre trois et quatre heures. La campagne est ouverte façon bac à sable, vient qui veut en fonction des dates et des disponibilités.
