Splitting and merging bags

The rules in this section don't work, at least if you use the Quick coin conversion table in Extra Shot. The mechanism for splitting bags leaves the character with less money than they started with.

Let's say you start with 1000 gp.

Using Extra Shot, this is a either electrum d12 or gold d4. Let's pick electrum. Now let's divide this into three electrum d4s. Looking at Extra Shot, these are worth 100 gp each. 700 gp just vanished somewhere in the room where the bags were divided.


Quote of the game: "In the Ahoggya language, 'fix' and 'break' are the same word."

I'm getting ready for Con of the North this weekend, where I've organized a Tekumel Track. 60 hours of gaming! I'm running two games using The Petal Hack, my rules light Tekumel system.

A question about expansions to the OD&D ship combat rules.
Have any OSR games expanded the base ship and ship combat rules from OD&D beyond medieval-style ships? I'm aware of Lamentations of the Flame Princess going into the Renaissance era, but I'm interested in going toward Greek and Roman ships and battles. So, the addition of rams, Greek fire, and other things missing from medieval or renaissance ship combat.

I'm experimenting with Macchiato Monsters for character generation and the risk die with The Black Hack for the turn sequence and combat system.

Do other GMs prep campaigns for fun?

I have 30 campaign ideas somewhere between concept and playable. I have eight I could run next week. Is this excessive?

Does anyone have a rumor generator for the Spinward Marches? Either tables or an app.

I'm running a fantasy adventure using either The Black Hack or Macchiato Monsters (both rules-light OSR games) tomorrow at 1130am until around 330p-ish. I have 2-3 more spaces at the table. I live in south Minneapolis near the LRT for easy transportation access.

If interested, drop me a line.

P. S. I'll buy pizza and IPA.
