Re: Frequency of Mercurial Magic

Absolutely correct me if I've got it wrong, but it sounds like you're rolling Mercurial effects anew with each casting... The intent is to "define" a Mercurial effect when the spell is gained, and it is then fixed. Your version of Magic Missile is different from my version of Magic Missile, because ...

Re: First PBP Funnel of 2020: The Gig at the Wizard's Tower

Zend lets go of the sword in shock, probably causing everyone else holding to lose their grip as well(?). "What spirits inhabit this thing?!" Mercer and Dejah cautiously move forward to collect the heads, assuming they have value above, even though they aren't rat heads. Kuruz wraps scraps of fabri...

Re: First PBP Funnel of 2020: The Gig at the Wizard's Tower

[OOC] For some reason the GG Forum isn’t letting me post from my PC. I keep getting a 404 error message. Waiting on a reply from someone at GG I just bumped into that issue, too....

Re: DunDraCon 44 -- 2020 A.D.

I had a great time at the last DunDraCon to be held at the San Ramon Marriott -- realized as I was leaving, that I'll miss that place... But I am looking forward to the new location next year. Had a great group for The Corpse That Love Built on Saturday night. What I heard about the other DCC and MC...

Re: How to handle player losing all their characters

I think that the key to a funnel is that you aren't supposed to be invested in any of your "zeroes"... I'm going to be a counterpoint to that thought by saying you can never go wrong by investing in your Zeroes. The game is always more fun when you bring those suckers to life, even if some of them ...

He opens a thick-leather pouch on his belt, revealing that it is full of a viscous yellow-orange liquid. "You two ...

On the descent, Zend uses his flint and steel to light one of Dejah's torches. At the bottom, taking care in case the cavern floor is slippery or tricky to walk on, she steps off the platform to light one of the torches in the sconces, if they'll ignite. Mercer hitches the small sack he owns onto hi...

Mercer: "If we should find other pests, can we assume extra pay -- say double -- for any such heads we find?"

Re: Players wanted: High time for a new PBP

I used Purple Sorcerer, but the pencil-and-paper, by-the-book method is fine, too. If by 'rolling for equipment' you mean a random roll on the equipment chart, that's standard, so I'm going to say do it. You can then spend your randomly determined cp on more equipment, as is standard. Judge Y: "For ...

I've barely cracked the covers of my GFA 2019s, so that would be a great choice, IMO.

Also, yeah, I think most play-by-posts aim for 1 post per day, and maybe one across a weekend.

Re: any mushroom tables?

If correctly brewed and drunk, you'll heal an extra hit point for overnight rest.

If correctly dried and crushed with particular herbs and plant extracts, it will make a poison equivalent to that of a Tarantula on Appendix: P.

They can be eaten as a meal. :mrgreen:

Having googled up what is probably the thing you saw, it doesn't look like it's a published adventure, but rather someone's homebrew setting for their Road Crew games.

Re: Thief Action Dice

I've heard of Judges only allowing Backstab at the start of a fight, or making it harder to 're-gain' the surprise after a fight has started.

Not how I would do it, but it's out there...
