Re: outsiders

Spell Question - Prismatic Sphere

I think I know the answer, its kind of right in the spell, but its maybe a good discussion for this group anyway: Can a person ethereal jaunt through the layers of the sphere into the space inside? Seems like yes unless you say that all magic on the material plane extends into the ethereal plane, wh...

Re: Time Tracking

For Combat: we have a dry erase board about 1' by 2' or small that we prop up where most can see it. pick a player to keep track, not the DM. Initiative we roll a d8 or 2d4 or d7 etc. add one if DEX is a prime, plus a few cases where more can be added. This give the order, write PC names in their sl...

Re: 2e Players' Option

can you be more specific? options?

skills? proficiencies?

I like skills outside of class abilities to see if you can cook, light a fire in the woods, tie flies and fish, etc. details to your PC archetype.

Re: Iron Flask saving throw

Many items need to be review one at a time with a check list. its not uncommon to find, no range on a spell, or an odd unit to area of effect, no clear save. a team of players and DMs going through each item and each spell in combat or correct use to see if its all there.

Isn't there a whole system for this in SEIGE engine in the Amazing Adventures stuff? That should port in easily. I never liked psionics because its so darn hard to spel.

Our story begins unlike any other, in a bar, in a cheap, dive bar. Not for adventurers, for the local working folks. You know the type of local regular folks with a d4 hp, a few coppers to their name, a few modest skills like turnip farming, cheese making, apprentice pig herder, that kind of bar. No...
