Re: Rains of Wojcik-mere (An anecdote from the end of Act 1)

If you refer to the fact that Dante is one of "them", I would rule that the hybrid Bodyburster does not recognize Dante as an "ally". The scenario specifies about the Aberrant Types : "Pure Xenomorph XX121 aliens will consider Aberrations like the Bodyburster tainted enemies of the hive and seek to ...

Re: Roll20 vs Foundry modules

I've bought and prepared the Alien modules Destroyer of Worlds, on Roll 20. I noticed several problems, that took me quite a while to sort : - Xenomorphs don't have a character sheet. It is perfectly possible to use a character sheet and the 6 tabs available for weapon to deal with different attacks...

Feedback on rules giving permanent Advantage

Hello, I am quite an experienced player of DD5, and I feel that trying to bring a darker settings to this game is an excellent thing. Forgotten Realms are really high magic and not Sword and Sorcery like. For example your Corruption rules seem an excellent idea to decrease the power of magic. But I ...

MIGHT rolls for Monsters

Hello, some monsters have to Roll for MIGHT without having the skill (like STONE GUARDIAN in Bitter Reach, attack 3 : "The Stone Guardian tries to grab the opponent’s weapon. First, attack using eight Base Dice. The attack inflicts no damage, but if it succeeds, make an opposed MIGHT roll.") There a...

Re: Playing online

Hi there, I play FL online with a bunch of friends, using Roll20. I know Fantasy Grounds too. FG is more difficult to handle than Roll20, but on the long term offers more possibility (for example automatization of damage reporting on your sheet).  To play online using Roll20, you would need : one of...

Rewriting Talents for combat with cards

Hello there, I tried to rewrite the 2 talents usable only if you use combat with cards, as we will not at my table (I find it quite limited and anyway we are playing online, which makes it very complicated). Please give a feedback if interested. Path of the Enemy You see through your opponent and an...

Re: Is GMs not getting willpower better?

If you want to balance the use of WP between the GM and the PC, maybe you can just use the current rule but have your NPC use WP during a round only if at least one PC used some during the round. 2 PC using WP allows the GM to have 2 NPC using, and so forth. The goal is to avoid any calculations tha...

Re: Adaptive talent examples

I would say you can imagine many things : - the PC has to lift a heavy rock to free a comrade, he can roll for Might or climb the rock and try wis his own weight and acrobatics to unbalance it and make it roll (roll for Move) ; - the PC has to roll for Endurance to resist cold during a journey, he i...

Re: Slavery in Ravenland

Slavery usually obeys precise rules to avoid that anybody capturing you in the street could sell you as a slave. Such a society would just collapse. For example for the Romans, a slave was a person convicted of serious felony who was deprived of civil rights, and therefore could possibly be used as ...
