Dossta's comment on 2011-01-18 01:39 PM


This is exactly how I would like my combat to go, but how do you get there?  I have worked on narrating actions of NPCs and the reactions of enemies that the PCs are engaging, but I have only managed to get a few interesting bits from my players.  Trying to inspire is great . . . but what else is there?



I suppose I could try awarding XP for stunts, but that seems cheap and will probably wear off after awhile.  I suppose my question becomes: what tricks do the GMs on this site use to encourage better combat roleplaying from their PCs?  This article does a great job of showing us the goal.  Now where's the rest?

The update is definitely helpful, thanks.  Will be trying some variation of the tokens at our next game.  Revoting now. . .

I'm going to try the attack bonus option. I'll let you all know if it works out. Thanks, Silveressa.

The steam powered backpack kinda threw me for a loop, but its a quest sub so tally-ho! I like the idea, and wouldnt mind taking in a lunch service on Ms. Swan's ship. How extravagant is getting a boat for your birthday? Go to Comment

haha, I enjoyed reading this one. Funny and original - and its always more interesting with a character who has NOT dedicated her life to hurting other human(oid)s.

Im looking forward to reading more of your work.

Im a great fan of putting illustrations in subs. It makes the sub that much more attractive and will definitely increase the chances of someone actually using it. Besides, it´ll give you that warm cosy feeling of a job well done...

Small question, would anyone be interested in seeing a floor plan layout of the ship? (Campaign Cartographer 3 quality)I've got some good ideas for it, but don;t really feel like putting forth the effort if no one really cares one way or the other. Go to Comment

Ah, the age-old fear of machines. It is only right that it materializes along with steampunk. There will be less sophisticated opponents, but I like the religious angle of these noble saboteurs, saviors of the mortal races. Kudos for the non-killing principle as well. Go to Comment

Excellently detailed, with realistic motivations. I could certainly see this as a real group. Go to Comment

Luddites are fun for any genre. For Steampunk they seem almost, "D'oh! Of course!" Good job here. Details are great. Go to Comment

My thoughts exactly Scras. I was thinking Luddites all through it - they are a prefect match for steampunk. Perfectly logical addition. Go to Comment
