Re: Open Chat
A change will go into effect next fight, ....
GM will rolls group initi to help speed up posting time since there is a delay as we wait to see who goes first each round. This should reduce that wait.

If group win, players post, actions happen in order of posts. Then GM posts.

If encounter wins, GM posts, then the players post, actions happen in order of posts.

let me know if this sound ok ?

Re: Open Chat
It was brought to my attention there was an error on the MONSTER ATTACK TABLE, and you were correct and I think it now read correctly.

Re: Open Chat
I think Salochin has one last chance to take down the last runner or the sleeping "beauty" on the ground. And Vatinius you also have that same chance if you wish.

The ones sleeping no rolls need to kill them its automatic.

Re: Open Chat
FYI
I noticed some players using Bio line 2 for A/C and Hit Points
You you all agree i think this is a smart thing.

Re: Open Chat
I will be home all this weekend!!

Since places are opening and there is this need for everyone to get out I figure I will do the opposite.
So, I will be staying home and doing food shopping etc etc during the week and this means I will be posting as much as I can online.

We will be moving posting through tonight and the weekend, ....

Re: Open Chat
With the goblin running away that really should be treated as a Retreat
In the post as a description I say running, but to be fair the players should also add the +2 to hit as per the Retreat

Re: Open Chat
Yeah, this is basic D&D. Reloading times are too complex a concept for this system. =)

Re: Open Chat
Yes, I like it. It's pretty bloody, but that's fantasy for you.

I found the sudden changes of time line and non-continuous story a bit hard to follow, but once I realized what they were doing it all fell into place.

I am looking forward to a second season. =)

Re: Open Chat
In reply to Darimillian (msg # 207):

it really reminded me of a classic AD&D game wondering monsters, doppelganger, dragon, elves, dwarves and the magic is very interesting. I like how some wizards/ mage users can fight.

the idea of magic is based on chaos and controlling that chaos, Im trying to remember what setting that comes from. I remember this, maybe Spell Law?

Re: Open Chat
HEADS UP

Going on Vacation!!!

So, I normally go ever year to the Cape May, for Memorial Day weekend but thanks to Covid for the first time since I was 8 I will not go to the beach to start my summer. This year I will go to my house in the mountains and chill out with Mother Nature in the woods and my lake, do some shooting and fishing in PA.

I will have Wifi, and I will bring my lap top so I can post. Not sure, .... lets see how it goes. I do not want to say I will post, ... then get tied up and don't keep my word. I do intend to post as much as I can based on how sober I stay, LMAO

Keep gaming and be safe.

Re: Open Chat
Hello Everyone

I hope you had a great Memorial Weekend, I an on vacation until Sunday night I am posting and logging in when I have some free time. Please check the thread on GENERAL RULES, I added a post on Ability Checks. With Classic D&D there are gaps and one is how to determine some things like a spot check or search, etc, etc.

Its been years but I remember using abilities for many of these rolls and I plan to do the same here. Let me know what you think about this? I also plan to add some Racial abilities, that are given based on your play in IC (still working on this idea).

If any of you have any questions or don't like any of the house rules that may come up as we play please let me know. I do want this to be as enjoyable as possible for all.
