Re: Book of Familiars

Just pulling your twigs Tree. You've had some pretty interesting house rules threads on here for a long time. As with all our non-core products all rules are optional and their use is at the whim and will of the GM. As it was meant to be!

Re: Book of Familiars

I hear ya. Like I said we may have missed a couple here and there. C&C for example doesn't have "dires" so no doubt the "Barbarian" boar was supposed to be a "dire" version from the original manuscript, which would make it "greater". Again, things like that happen when converting from an uber game s...

Re: Book of Familiars

Ya know, converting anything from 3.x to anything is a chore. Converting several authors writing and intent is an even greater chore. Nobody ever gets 100% correct INCLUDING Paizo, S&W, Goodman, and Wizards of the Coast to name a few. I know that WOTC's "Final" PHB for 3.5 still had about 6 page err...

Re: Haunted Highlands CK Guide is a monster!

Looks like peter and I miscommunicated on a couple of maps, they are getting put back in as we speak. Part of the problem has been (personally) my family has been trying to sell our house and move for the past 9 months. When having showings things get put places and misplaced or stuffed into storage...

Re: An update on Return to the Haunted Highlands Kickstarter

I just wanted to add from Steve's recent posts that I am within a couple of days of having the DB9 turned in. Sorry for the delay, we were victims of our own success on this in that I had about half of DB9 done but never expected that the kickstarter would go as high as it did... thanks for that! Hu...

Re: Eskadia ~ Too Far North

DB 8=Mists of Mantua, so Mantua itself is described. DB 7= Duchy of Karbosk so it goes over the rest of the villages and ruins of the Duchy which was introduced in some detail in DB 4-5. The Gazetteer covers alot of info on the terrain areas between the two. For example the Fander Range of Mountains...

Re: lack lustor missle damage

KaiserKris. I'm with you on that. Another option (though probably broken) would be to allow additional attacks per dex bonus point in exchange for losing dex bonus "to hit", or even taking a penalty for the additional shots but your also talking a 6 second round right?

Re: lack lustor missle damage

Silly, and historically ludicrous (no offense). Despite its awesomeness, The English still lost battles when they had the longbow in their service, and in some cases they lost to guns. Once this started happening they got wind and switched to the guns as well because they realized what everyone else...

Re: lack lustor missle damage

The common tactic as I got it from the chief chef and bottle washer at the Roadhouse is to use caltrops to agitate its multiple legs then spear it in the back of the head with reach weapons to avoid damaging any of the good loin cuts. :)

Arduin... the old brown bess was a lot more accurate than you may have been led to believe. I know old timers like my dad and some of his friends who hunt with non rifled Italian replicas to this very day. Inside of 25 yards they are quite accurate, out to 50 yards are still serviceable as a hunting...

Re: lack lustor missle damage

Yup. :) My only exception is that a 7/10ths inch round ball hitting you anywhere on the body within defined fantasy RPG ranges of engagement is going to leave a hole in someone big enough to clearly see through... and grapeshot being like 10 of those? That is why I gave a D8 to the smoothbore round ...

Re: lack lustor missle damage

Arrows historically are one of the worst ways to die in combat because you don't usually die "instantly" even from a "fatal" shot. You die from bleeding out, shock, or sepsis...or multiple arrows which attribute to the above 3. Native Americans using a version of a composite type bow would frequentl...

Re: Anyone else feeling spammed by TLG?

The unfortunate side effect of any sort of Kickstarter type campaign is the (unintended) over-saturated load of information that gets pushed off on our most loyal and faithful fans. It is also the biggest drawback of how most automated systems delivery systems work. I have to put up with the same th...
