For some GMs, creating NPCs is a pleasure. For others, including myself, it is a chore. Trying it create an NPC on the fly is one of my greatest fears and when I need to figure out the stat of an NPC that I never expected to need it can grind the game to…

Indie RPGs are meant to empower players and GMs in creating stories but I find they often don't live up to the hype.

I never really thought about that. I'm sure there are plenty of gamers who are bored in combat waiting for the RP but it's true that combat is frequently the go-to experience.

+Lex Starwalker BTW, in your podcast about world building you couldn't see how anyone could run a business making and selling magic items because of price to sell magic items in DND. Don't forget that the book assumes players will be selling to a shop, which wants to buy it for half of what they sell for. It's mostly an artifact to stop players from saying "Ok, I make 50 bags of holding and sell them and now we never have to worry about money again".

Players pulling in different directions destroying your role playing game? Avoid this fate and start off on the right foot by setting expectations.

Wow, what a week. Dungeon Saga arrived and I've never painted so many miniatures in so short a time.

If I'm playing an RPG with a focus on combat, it needs to be tactically challenging and rewarding, even without miniatures.

Hurray, I finally got myself a proper microphone so I can join in. I've looked and can't seem to find a faq or wiki to help players start joining games. I'm currently terribly unsure of which games I can/should join and what the requirements are.

Believe me, a mic wasn't 100% necessary! Half the time I have to type because of familial disapproval of my hobbies >.> But we're flexible and it's really easy to join in! Hop in a few minutes before a game starts and the GMs are great about helping newcomers walk through the character creation and basics <3

Beware tying damage to success on hit. DP9's silhouette system did this and it broke armour, since wearing armour gave you a negative in combat which meant you too more damage, and the extra damage was more than the extra HP provided by the armour.

Personally, I don't see having 8 rounds of misses being a problem, especially in a duel. Sounds like that could be described as exciting swordplay.

Of course I've been playing mostly Numenera and Dungeon World, neither of which use AC.
You win this time, land-beast. One of the things I dislike is having to roll to beat a target AC. I've had many a session where a combat encounter loses all sense of tension and drama as it devolves into everyone failing to h...

I've used Golden's High Flow Acrylics for almost a year and I've found so much to love . The problem is, I may have found a reason to hate them.
