Re: Mastering Dungeons – Starting Strong Part 3

I'm really loving these segments! The starter adventures segments led into the "starting strong" segments quite well. I'm absorbing quite a bit of wisdom and knowledge for my own design efforts from these episodes. Thank you so much for sharing your insight, thoughts, experience, and wisdo...

Re: Psychic Game in Vilna Alberta (Hodgepocalypse)

Your description and backstory have spurred a few ideas for me: A mushroom cluster is ejecting spores that that cause psychics to experience strange/unusual powers. These can be powers that exist within your framework, but ones that the particular character/monster doesn't normally have. Here's the ...

Re: Fantasy Appalachia

I'm going to drop a link to a friend's novella that he calls "rural fantasy" (as opposed to urban fantasy), but "Appalachia mysticism" could be applied as a label as well. It's quite a hoot to read, and Patrick's voice in his prose always carries humor with it. If you spend the w...

Re: DwDD – Exploring Exploration, Pt. 3

If anyone knows where to get that, let me know. (And please, no pirate sites.) Thanks for the p...

Re: DwDD – Exploring Exploration, Pt. 3

Great series of episodes on exploration! Very well done. I believe it was Teos that mentioned one of the Middle Earth RPGs (there are several out there over the decades) had an overland travel approach that he liked. I was wondering which version of Middle Earth RPG he was referencing, so I can acqu...

Re: Sneak Attack - Flanking

We house ruled it into the game before we found the text in the book stating it was an optional rule. It turned out our house ruling was identical to the optional rule, so it meshed well. Based on the fact that we injected flank into the rules ourselves, that should be read as, "We like the fla...

Greetings!

Hola and greetings, J.T. Evans here. I'm a fantasy and urban fantasy author. I also write for Gnome Stew and you may have heard me a "few" times on the Gnomecast as well. On the RPG front, I'm more of a fan of the crunchy and mechanical games, but I don't like it to go overboard. As way of...
