Re: Adventure ideas – Gaslight & Urban

Now, what ideas for bad guy opponent(s) should I use. What adventure ideas do you all have for an urban gaslight adventure ? Have you got the Baker Street: Roleplaying in the World of Sherlock Holmes book, "Sherlock by Gaslight" - that might scratch your itch for both things! I like the c...

I like the new class tables which detail the abilities at each level, including when the ability "levels up" at 3rd, 5th etc.

Re: Your dream campaign

I want so badly to run the Masks scenario for CoC, but it involves such a huge time-sink for me as GM, and that's before even starting - you have to have read and digested the entire scenario before starting in order to do it justice and not be caught unaware during play.

Hello and welcome to the forum! There is not currently a way to do it, but it is something I am acutely aware of it needing.

Pendragon 6e Starter Set. I have made a character using the start of the book so far.

Hey all,

Just wanted to let you know there's been support logs ongoing for a few days with the host providers about the forums continually going down. They have hopefully fixed this now, but if it happens again, please bear with us while we continue to talk to them about it.

Hey all. The Trolls looked into the issues causing the forums to go down. They think it is sorted, but thdy had to use a database backup to do so, so there may be a few missing posts. I'm Not sure how many.
