85) Find yourself a wind tunnel (an open field in the midwest is an acceptable substitute). Try walking forward against the wind. Imagine running and fighting (or casting spells) while dealing with this sort of distraction. Fighting that Wind Wizard doesn't seem so hot now, does it?

86) Go take a first aid course of some sort (epic bonus points for paramedic training). See exactly how badly people can screw themselves up with simple little things. Imagine trying to treat horrifying wounds with limited supplies, in an non-sterile environment, at night, by the light of a campfire (or candles). Go to Comment

The division of a soul and 'essence' reminds me quite a bit of Sauron from LotR. Go to Comment

Ohai old article. Solid and useful, a classic MoonHunter article. Go to Comment
Music during a game

They also have the Chrono Trigger soundtrack, which in my opinion is one of the best game soundtracks ever. That probably why the game was such an awesome one. There's usable stuff across the entire CD. Horror, heroic, love, sorrow, action, all of it is there. I know that when I run a Tyren game, it'll use some of those songs as background music.

I love this thread. There's so much variety, I'm shocked we don't have more and more scroll entries. I myself can't push much of an opinion, since I haven't run a table-top game. Ever. Lots of ideas for one though...

Give it some love people! Go to Comment
Quick Plots

Chaosmark's comment on 2008-11-07 12:12 PM
I think we're looking for a slightly longer version of Short and Sweet: fully fleshed out plots within a restrictive word count; not, however, that restrictive. About 3 times the size seems right, since these are plots only.

In his defense, this was before Muro's sub, so AG was here first. I doubt this will ever make it out of in-work. Go to Comment

This needs more votes. It's an excellent overview of the concept of true components-required magic. Go to Comment

There's nothing saying that they can't eat the same food that the rest of us eat, digesting and absorbing nutrients from the food. Go to Comment

I read these a while ago, thought them nifty, and dismissed them (without even a vote, apparently). No longer! I find these to be one of the most unique races I've ever seen. Very nicely done Echo. Now we just need to get more submissions that relate to them. Perhaps a post or two on their society, history, origins, and notable persons? Go to Comment

*blinks* Wow, that's...quite typical of desert creatures: deadly yet beautiful at the same time. I like it, though it lacks that...Umph that would give it a 5/5. Go to Comment

C'mon! We're predominantly fantasy gamers here. Why the heck aren't there more comments and tidbits of advice clamoring for inclusion? Make this a scroll, and start adding entries.

As is, a fairly useful article. It might be nice to have it fleshed out a bit more though. Go to Comment
Focus Based Magic System
Systems  (Mystical)   (General)
Chaosmark's comment on 2007-08-26 07:55 AM
Interesting. This very much reminds me of the Dresden Files system of magic. (Shoutout: the DF roleplaying game is nearing completion) For those who are unfamiliar with the books, the main character is a wizard, and the way magic works is by force of will. However, if you have a large chunk of power, but little control, you need a focus to work your magic through. The focus 'focuses' your raw power into something usable. All in all, an interesting system that keeps you from needing to learn 500,000 different spells and modifiers for those spells. Go to Comment

This can lead to issues of race-origin in some worlds, if the GM wishes to take it that route. Go to Comment
