Into the Borderlands retail?

I noticed that the webpage for pre-orders states that all pre-orders are accounted for and that pre-orders now mean a release sometime in June. Does this mean this is not going to retail until later or are the retail copies also part of the pre-order? I guess what I'm asking is, how can I get a copy...

Are there Elves and Dwarves in Lankhmar?

I've read a bunch of Leiber's books but not all of them. Were there ever any Dwarves or Elves in his stories?

thanks

What's missing from the softcover deluxe edition?

I noticed that the HC deluxe has a higher page count, does anyone know what's actually missing from the softcover deluxe edition? Also, is there anything from the kickstarter that was exclusive? Lastly, what should I buy after the rule book? Are there any adventure modules I should play first? Any s...

Re: Doom related advice,

It's not necessarily that I feel the Jarl is evil or just misguided, but how does he react to being "outed" as the bad guy. He's trying to murder the PCs, surely he's not a "good" guy. He knows the PC's know he tried to kill them or does he? IF the Jarl knows this, wouldn't he assume retribution and...

Doom related advice,

Iraco talks, a hunter escapes. . . The PCs have just retrieved the spear after a very fun dungeon crawl and we paused at this point. Next session, Iraco being captured and at least one hunter escaping seems like the most likely scenario. I'm a little unsure of how I should play out the following sce...

Re: Two questions regarding deeds of arms

I no longer have issues with MD. The issue was always more about the idea of overpowered than issues in game. I finally came to the conclusion that NONE of the class's are balanced and that every single class is overpowered. I guess it works out because the game play has shown that the game as a wh...

Re: Two questions regarding deeds of arms

I'm fascinated to note that various elements of the game that groups are house ruling because it doesn't "feel right". Personally I find it entirely appropriate and thematic that at any given time, in addition to attempting to wound your opponent you are also trying to disarm, or trip, or push them...

Re: Two questions regarding deeds of arms

Performing a Mighty Deed every round just sounded silly and felt silly, so we house ruled if you announce a Deed you always get the "to-hit" effect of the deed die but if you fail, you don't get the damage bonus from the deed die. It's a little bit of a penalty and there's at least some penalty for ...

Re: Anyone combine "Portal" with "Doom"?

Well, I finally combined Portal with Doom and we didn't level the PC's till after the module was done, even though they had 15 XP by then. We all agreed that it was non-sensical to level up on the spot, it just didn't work for us. ( mainly the DM, me of course)Anyways, the good news is that 11 zeros...

Hound of Hirot questions ( spoilers obviously)

The first module went great and about 8 or 9 PC's made it so it's perfect for the next module. I read through PotP and it looks a little too much for now so I thought I 'd try Doom first. Anyways, after reading the module I'm a little confused as to the Hounds abilities. It states under SP that the ...

Quick question regarding healing ability points. . .

When the rule book states you heal one point per good night's rest, does it mean 1 point off of each ability or just one point in total? So if the Wizard has Strength, Personality, and Agility depleted by 3 point each , does he gain a point back in each catagory or does he have to pick only one abil...

Re: Burning Luck

Re: Levelling Up

You guys are really going to level up during the adventure? Does it say to do that in the rulebook? Leveling up on the spot doesn't make sense in an RPG and feels like a video game. It's too gamey in my opinion, but I also think it would be very difficult to finish "Sailors" with all 0-levels. Maybe...

TPK's and published modules, what next?

Since a TPK seems almost inevitable with Sailors, do you guys just roll up new 0-levels and try the same module as if it never happened or whatever is cleared out stays cleared out? Do you intsead create more 0-level scenarios until a few PC's survive? What I'm most worried about is that my players ...

Another thought occurred to me (since I'm also expecting to have to deal with 'complexity' issues at my own game, whenever that comes along): What if to start off, you have spellcasting always generate a result of X (whatever number makes sense to you). Spellcasters still have to roll for fumbles, ...

Please take my comments as tounge in cheek from a gaming geezer. Print out the tables and keep them handy and put a bookmark in the spell section.
