My husband loves to go both of those places because the mall = the Apple Store, Best Buy, the LEGO store, the Nike store, food IKEA = new furniture for gaming and/or storing games What in the world else would you do at either of those places?!

My husband loves to go both of those places because the mall = the Apple Store, Best Buy, the LEGO store, the Nike store, food IKEA = new furniture for gaming and/or storing games What in the world else would you do at either of those places?! The mall I can deal with (mmmm Schnickelfritz). All Ikeas can burn to the ground. My wife dragged me there once. I felt like I had just been dropped into the consumer maze from hell. From the second I got to the top of the escalator (which is one way I might add, this I am sure is done on purpose to counter the exact reaction I had which was "get me out of here NOW!" but nooo they make you walk threw all two stories before herding you into a food court) all I wanted to do was get out.

  3. I play to many different games to hate on anyone for their preference. If you like Dark Heresy you should check out Eclipse Phase (completely amazing game and its free! robboyle.wordpress.com/eclipse-phase-pdfs/). Personally I've been having a lot of fun with WFRP 3e. We play on a 24"d x 48"w coffee table (tiny) and still have no issues with space. The components help be remember whats going on with everything while I am trying to do five things at once. The flexible rules allow me to instantly adjust the dice pools based on character choices which give everything a much more fluid "alive" feel. There is really a lot to like about it. I feel most people who don't like it simply have an issue getting over themselves and what their cookie cutter concept of an rpg is. Someone mentioned DragonLance Saga edition. It is ironic that Saga and this system stay the truest to the name of the hobby - "roleplaying". No other systems have been designed to aid roleplaying and minimize book flipping better than Saga or WFRP 3e. Side note: I'm not going to tell anyone what roleplaying is or isn't supposed to be except this one tidbit. If you think LFR is roleplaying your doing it wrong . The release schedule is slow and it would be nice if the listed future products like Wizards. Also, what has been included in the sets so far has been lacking. Over half a year in and still waiting on basic stuff like a beastiary, religion supplement. And don't get me started on how it seem like their plan for setting info is to randomly pepper it through each set instead of putting out a setting set.

  5. I used a tracker to get to the dinner, it worked well timing wise. The problem I had was the players found the note and already suspected a lot of the right people so dinner passed by fast an uneventful.
  6. I found it finally. Never even occured to me to look in the House Rules section. Plugin: www.vendolis.org/forum/viewtopic.php Application: cgjennings.ca/eons/ Here is a link to the original thread so everyone can give props to Hurlanc for giving us such a great tool. new.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_foros_discusion.asp
  7. Someone posted a link to an application and plugin for it that allowed you to build monsters and NPC's. Anyone remember what the link for the download was?
  8. Kind of redundant really. All of the careers are adventurers or games would consist of all the PCs roleplaying the mundane duties of the careers.
  9. Darrett said: Amazon usually gets FFG products later in order to give smaller outlets a chance to make some sales before Amazon undercuts them. That said, Amazon really doesn't have cheaper prices on the supplements, only the Core set, making FFG's delay through Amazon largely unnecessary in my opinion. Not when no game shops near you carry WFRP and you have Amazon's Prime shipping.
  10. For dice we all share, I use the lid from the adventurers toolkit to roll in since the table gets rather filled. Eye for an Eye is good, and easy to use as a simple jumping off point.
  11. If only one player shines at roleplaying I would give him a non XP reward, if the whole group does I would give XP.
  12. Fossy said: "Upcoming" lists The Winds of Magic updated as "Shipping Now". No Announcement? Going by Amazon's release date the 'shipping now' probably refers to the shipment from the distributor to retailers.
  13. Don't ask why I bothered looking but on Amazon Winds is listed a 4lbs. For comparison the GM Toolkit is 2.1 and The Gathering storm is 1.5. For further reference the core set is 6.4lbs. So looks like lots of nice shiny stuff is going to be packed in there. I also noticed the the GM Toolkit and TGS are blue boxes and as we saw that seems to = cheap thin cardboard end opening boxes, and Winds is the same color as the Aventurers Toolkit and the core set. Proper heavy duty box hopefully?
  14. For me reading the adventure threw once with some minor notes of how I want to tie things together is usually enough. This random adventure concept the way I use it is more to fill the gaps of when the PCs go off and do something totally unplanned. Say it is the trip from the manor in Eye for an Eye to Stormdorf, and they decide that they want to go check out some random set piece I just added into my description of the scenery as flavor. Well now it needs to be more than flavor it needs to be explorable. This random system allows me to throw together a location and encounter in minutes instead of trying to railroad them into just continuing forward.
  15. chrull said: A "good" GM in the WFRP world should have interest and knownledge in european history and it helps that some of the PCs walking that way too. I feel that the WFRP 3rd ed. is abit like the LOTR movies. You need to have some knowledge of the MIddle Earth universe and medieval europe, to fully enjoy the whole world and it's inhabitants. Having the 2nd ed books and a good sized bookshelf of 11th - 16th century goes along way. The 3rd ed. books, so far, are not of the best construction wise. But all good aventures takes a few reading throughs, just like a script has to be read and understood by and the director and the cast. Alot of the comments on this forum feels very much like boardgaming feedback. Roleplaying is not a quick dice role and combat fix. It is improvised theatre for the PCs and prepared directing from the GM. Well it isn't board game feedback. It is players with careers, wives, and kids feedback. You have time to read the book three times and study European history, super, I don't. This thread was about people like me having a quick workable system to throw things together on the fly. A "good" GM is one that is fair, and puts on a game people want to keep coming back to play.
