What I'm drinking. #hobgoblin
I have a bunch of old minis that I don't know when was made or who produced them. Looking for a forum or a website that could help me get them identified.
I arrived some time ago. Have been and probably will be a little on and off, but the fediverse is pretty perfect for what I want.
Do you know any good resources for quickly generating towns and cities? I need to figure out name, population, important buildings, important NPCs, governance, import/export and so forth. Preferably books with lots of tables, but web based tools is ok too. #RPG
So, yesterday's session of Castles & Crusades didn't go as it usually does. In four ours we squeezed in a hell of a lot of shopping, some drinking, quite a bit of investigating and only one puny fight. Also, I figured out I'm really not very good at being intimidating. Is it a good sign when the players laugh at the referee playing a tough guy? 😂
Need a city map generator? This one was pretty cool. #rpg https://watabou.itch.io/medieval-fantasy-city-generator
Helmets! They don't usually do anything and when they do it seems excessive (1 point of AC comes to mind). I'm still fiddling with my own rules and I came up with this. Whenever a blow brings your character to EXACTLY 0 hp wearing a helmet effectively keeps your character at 1 hp. Your helmet saved your life, as they should do, and you get one last chance.
Alternative Divine Spellcasting - Cleric reboot
This was really inspirational and might very well be what i will use for clerics in my own Vaults & Vagabonds-rules. I really dig how these simple rules joins Turn Undead and Spellcasting into the same concept, and how it opens up very creative choices for the cleric.
What is a better ability for fighters:
* Against creatures with 1HD or less, a Fighter makes one attack per level each round.
* When fighters strike a hit, they also deal half damage to all opponents surrounding them. (alt. deal damage equal to fighter level).
The first is the old way, the second is maybe more elegant, but potentially more powerful?
