Hey EC fans,

I'm looking for some feedback on a new game I'm working on.  It's a cross between white box D&D and Encounter Critical:

Just popped into my head:
"Fear not: Pioneer, Warrior, Warlock, Criminal, Doxy, and Psi-Witch. That was Viraxis, the force of evil. I am Journey Master, your guide in the realm of Encounter Critical!"

Not sure what magic weapon Eric the Doxy gets, though.

A Phasic Bow, of course.

In honor of goblinweek, I wrote a post about Blue Goblins. I also included character stats for playing a blue goblin in the mighty realm of Vanth.
A little lightning on the brow You'd think as an ambassador to gnomes here at the Gnomish Embassy, that I'd have a prejudice against goblins. Especially since goblins get a goblin week and we don't even have an official gnome...

A form of stationary Sneak, which has its own %, but the sheet conflates with Sneak Attack.  I just record both percentages on the same line separated by a /.

Alan Tudyk is so awesome that he should play Thrazar in the long-awaited Encounter Critical movie!

Seriously, I've been waiting for Alan to play Thrazar since 1979, shortly after I discovered EC.

WMLP is a zine and blog worth checking out.  It melds old school, sci-fantasy, gonzo, and silly/weird/juvenile drawings.  I contributed a little something in a previous issue, and now my work is included in this, the 6th issu...

Wouldn't it be great to run "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks" in EC? And wouldn't it be great to flip the idea, making it a magic ship from another dimension?

Time to start brainstorming...

I'll give it a shot. I'm thinking about something like a Spelljammer ship. I've got the boxed set and some modules, but if anbody has any suggestions, I'll take 'em.

Hey! Ever want to use the Mighty Land of Vanth as a gritty swords & sorcery setting? Maybe using the ZeFRS rules that were used in TSR 's Conan Rpg?

Human characters are created as per the rules. Non humans must take the weakness listed below and the skills listed that a character gains as a result of taking a weakness. Unless otherwise indicated additional weaknesses may be taken if desired as per the rules.



Amazon: weakness to women; stamina 5, weapon ( long or short bow) 5

Dwarf: gold lust ( when confronted with the prospect of riches a dwarf must make a successful will or general endurance check to avoid pursuing wealth); magic endurance 5, poison endurance 5

Elf: foppish; magic sense 5, personal magnetism 5

Frankenstein: phobia ( fire); berserk 5, brawling 5

Hobling; glutton; herbalism 5, throwing 5

Klengon: rash; animal senses 5, weapon ( any blade) 5

Lizard Man: cold blooded ( minus 2 column shift on all actions taken in cold climates or winter months); hypnotism 5, swimming 5-

Planetary Ape: religious code of honor (must follow precepts of the Lawgiver, cannot kill ape, distrusts humans, cannot say or be told no etc. Will defend honor of the Lawgiver and Sacred Scrolls); arcane languages 5, lore 5

Robodroid: no required weakness; however robodroids do not heal normally and are not treated with medicine skill; instead robodroids are repaired with the blacksmith skill. Specific wounds may be replaced by such repair although such upgrades may be expensive. In addition robodroids are immune to the effects of disease or poison.

Wooky: taciturn; danger sense 5, weapon (arbalest) 5

Vulkin: pedantic ( when dealing with other races, Vulkins suffer a minus 2 column shift on NPC reaction checks due to their logical, and as some view it, insufferable nature); minstrel 5, observation 5

Taking a look at Encounter Critical with a couple of player character species.
True Scientific Realism! So I generally consider myself a generic minded GM over the genre specific type, with two exceptions. One is is Basic Fantasy Role-Playing Game which serves as my system of choice when I want to run s...

Hey, guys, just reminding you that this exists. This wasn't my idea, but I just updated it with some hexes.

Hi, I'd like to make modules for Encounter Critical. Are there any special considerations I got to have in mind? What if I put on DTRPG for example (as a free product)?

First module would be - Slave mines of Krixatan, the robodroid warlock (working title).

I'd leave the Robodroid Warlock part out of the title too, that info will come soon enough.
