Back in the day I usually ran towns like sandboxes. You'd give players a map with keyed buildings and they'd have to wander around to go shopping or see what was there. There were random encounters every X feet or minutes. Some buildings had surprises. There were wandering npcs with secrets or missions, criminals, monsters in dark corners out in the sewers or disguised in plain sight.

It wasn't a campaign, just a visit to town.

Haven't really done this in years. Players lack the patience so we just hand wave towns now. Shopping is abstract. You walk thru the city gate and "teleport" to the shop you want.

I kinda miss the old way. It was tedious and time consuming but fun, and you got a feel for the place.

How interesting that she quotes Marie Curie, who also experimented with radioactive substances; those same substances killed her.

hi people, my group has just finished kingmaker AP. we are not using PF rules but play DCC. what is the second most sandboxy AP out there? something that allows for downtime and side treks and stuff like that and offers the most freedom to PCs.

Cool and creepy.

this is similar to the dcc spellcasting.
The Challenges Game System was an 8 page restatement of D&D written by Tom Moldvay. James Maliszewski has a brief rundown of the game here. The one place where Moldvay seriously complicates his otherwise streamlined system is with the attack table. It's an interesting one-roll alternative to ...

Imagine calling Heaven's tech support to complain about your connection.  You'd be on hold for eternity.
