Re: I have a few questions I want to ask

Outside the box idea: A Wizard in the group I'm game-master for hates magic and think it's going to be the downfall of everything. He is extremely reluctant to use his magic due to its corruptive power (in his view)... So, well, not every fix need to be done by drastic rule changes or recreating you...

as i recall, the steps in the book account for rolling max value on the die into the average step value. i would imagine that this system messes with that somewhat.
Well, it's not an exact distribution match, but it is good enough and well worth it for us.

Re: Problem with LP awards and short sessions: Need advice

I also would give some range and not a fix amount based on the time you played and the difficulty of the adventure or even for good roleplaying. While I do occasionally reward a little bit more if they've accomplished something extraordinary I do not need to dangle LP rewards for excellent roleplay...

The Vasdenja's network

I'm running an epic campaign honoring the sacrifice of the dragon Vasdenja in the Throalic war. It's been 30 years of peace and trade with Thera has become commonplace. But now there are powerful forces in the Theran empire that are not content with playing nice, and they are using any tactics to sa...

Re: Problem with LP awards and short sessions: Need advice

I reward my group with the LP equivalent of the cost for raising a talent from the circle they're at to the next circle. Circle 1: 200 Circle 2: 300 Circle 3: 500 Circle 5: 800 Circle 6: 1300 Circle 7: 2100 Circle 8: 3400 That way I know approximately how many sessions there are between each circle ...

Re: Training skills?

Can you train someone in a skill if you have the talent or do you need to have the skill? thanks My interpretation: no There is a Wizard spell that can interrupt a magic talent, and if used to interrupt "Melee attack" would force a Warrior to use the Melee skill (or Dex if the Warrior does not have...

Step dice - d8 system

I know the original creator of the step system doesn't like this (and I know this from talking to someone who used to be the game master for the person who designed the step system), however, my group prefers a different dice combination for steps which makes it a WHOLE lot faster and easier to reme...

Re: 4th ed spells now take LP to learn?

I thought it boring to gain a circle and perhaps not afford any spells, so what I did for my group was award a number of free spells depending on Perception.
Perception below 13: 1 Spell for free
Perception from 13 to 19: 2 spells for free
Perception from 19 ... : 3 spells for free
