Re: Running Weatherstone

I'm going to be running Weatherstone on Saturday. This post got me thinking. For a fighting escape, what I'll probably do: The exit to each zone/room is blocked by X number of undead. But behind them, X number of undead enter the zone each round. So they've got to kill the undead in front of them b...

Re: Running Weatherstone

It might. Still struggling with how to run a fighting escape. I mean, assuming they can't kill all the undead (which is fine), how do they cut their way out? How did your party do? Any tips on what went well and what not so well (in your opinion?) My party has just met Rolk in his camp one hex away...

Re: Running the 'Ship' in Quetzel's Tower?

So, I basically made a map of a ship with wings and placed a few points of interest so I would know how or where PCs could interact with the ship. I figured they’d need X amount of successes (assess to the strength of your party) to crank that door up and then they would have like 3 rounds to get t...

Re: modified Bind Magic, unbalanced?

My players and I were discussing this tonight. Since making a permanent item almost guarantees that you will have a mishap and a mishap can kill you, we were struggling to understand the benefits of using the spell. I think your players severely underestimate how likely mishaps are on regular spell...

Re: New Spells

Have given these a skim. The Path of Shadow and Path of Galefrond are very cool and favorable. New general magic I'm a bit sketchy on. For one thing, it dramatically adds to the potency of all casters (unless you handle these spells differently somehow). So that's one hesitation. Also some the spell...

Running the 'Ship' in Quetzel's Tower?

How do you run the ship encounter in Quetzel's tower? There is no description on where the engine sits on the boat, compared to the railing. There is no description I saw on how long it takes the door to be pulled up. I get that falling off the boat is instant death, so I don't want the players to b...

Re: What's your opinion on Forbidden Lands?

Almost all of your issues seem universal to just about any fantasy RPG. • One player dominating the group decisions? That’s not really a game mechanic issue. While that has some truth to it, FL's experience costs for magic actively encourage it. If there is a magic user in the group, even if the pl...

Re: What's your opinion on Forbidden Lands?

I've been running a campaign more or less since lock-down started (maybe April). Running Raven's Purge. To be honest, I'm starting to get burned out. The players seem to avoid my story hooks and the main plot of Raven's Purge in favor of letting one PC find yet another teacher for his Sorcery. I've...
