Re: Announcing Haven Goodman

Wow, I am only now seeing this.
Congrats to the both of you for producing such a marvellous specimen. This also finally answers the question: does Mr. Goodman have any other hobbies? :D :wink:

Re: Hand-Tooled (0-level) Character Sheet

@koboldstyle: I love the sheets and their design! It's great work. Say, will you do revised sheets for each class once the DCC RPG is out? And more resource cards would also be greatly appreciated! :)

Re: Ancient Sling Bullets Had Written Messages

Wow, that's really an interesting piece of trivial knowledge! Who would have thought? Might be fun to have a scene where a character messily extracts a sling bullet that just hit him, only to find some taunt or other funny message inscribed on it... like "Watch out!" or "Contains lead and may be haz...

Re: Art Preview: Jeff Easley

Man, a dream comes true! JEFF EASLEY was one of my artist heroes from the beginning of my roleplaying "career" and now he is doing art for one of the most promising roleplaying games since the invention of the OGL. Still can only half believe it!! Really - you guys rock big time!

Re: Castle Whiterock Question for Authors

While we're at it, I noticed that the math of the stat writeups of the pregenerated characters is not correct. I noticed that when I was transfering them to full-blown char sheets and filled in the blanks. For example, Darsus the cleric has the Alertness feat but it does not figure into his skill ra...

Re: Thank you for Dungeon Crawl Classics

@Treebore, JediOre: Thank you guys for your kind words. I know that you have a valid point because I have Castles & Crusades and played it. I like the game and find it's simple mechanisms very elegant. But I doubt that 4E adventures with their rather strict encounter design will convert easily to C&...

Re: Goodman Games and 4E

Thank you all for your convincing words. I have absolutely no doubt that Goodman Games will continue to make great sourcebooks and adventures. And I really mean it - after all, I have bought a lot of 3.5 stuff from you and I was (and still am) very pleased with it! As I might play 4E on and off, I w...

Re: Goodman Games and 4E

I think subsequent books, both from WotC and other companies (*cough* Goodman *cough*) will continue to expand your options so that you can make a character that doesn't resemble all others of its type. Sure, and I have no doubt that other companies will try that. But the thing is that the inherent...

Re: Goodman Games and 4E

The game at its outset is simplier as there is a universal mechanic for everything. But in the long run, I think that simplicity will actually detract from the longevity of the product. Why do I say that? To keep thinks simple they further abstracted the game to a point where what little sense of r...

Hi folks at Goodman Games, it has been a long time since I posted here. Partly because other things tied down my free time and attention.

Paizo sticks to 3.5 for Pathfinder

As it turns out Paizo Publishing (Pathfinder, GameMastery) will release a special Pathfinder-RPG based off of the 3.5 rules, thereby keeping the rules in circulation. An alpha version of their rulebook (scheduled for August 2009) is available for download from their homepage. Since I am one who will...

I would surmise that the stats have the same bonuses as 3.5. But as in STAR WARS: Saga Edition there might be an Action Bonus equal to half the level already added in (to all attributes). Since the Spiked Devil is level 6, this bonus would be +3 which fits in nicely with the standard bonuses due to ...
