  1. Those are great ideas. I don't know much about sports but I'm sure the kids do. Puzzle solving is good too because I can always use the old (players cover your ears) whatever-the-players-think-of-is-what's-happening trick. What about a skill list? If I just take out combat skills and rename a few things ... or is there a good *stand-in* for combat? I want to avoid combat altogether just so I don't get myself in trouble ?

    For Kids?

    I'm a teacher, and I want a Genesys setting for elementary age kids I guess what I really need is a replacement for combat. Any ideas? Thanks!
  3. I haven't actually played it, but Princes of the Apocalypse is one of my favorite D&D books. http://dnd.wizards.com/products/tabletop-games/rpg-products/princes-apocalypse
  4. What about a talent: Undercrank (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/undercrank) Tier: ? [Ranked?] Once per session, before rolling a Cool check to determine initiative order, make an opposed Cool versus Vigilance check against a character in short range. If successful, add ■■ to your initiative check for this encounter [or ■ for each of your character's ranks in Undercrank?]. If unsuccessful, add ■■ to your initiative check for this encounter. During the encounter, your character must target that character with a check at the first opportunity.
  5. I like the idea, and with the right group of players it could be fun. In general, I'm all for fixing stuff that isn't broken Of course, the RAW initiative mechanic is fast. Getting a good initiative slot is always important, perhaps even more so in this game, and the RAW let the players make the most of whatever they roll. What sounds fun to me about your idea is the opposed checks. It would slow down the game, yes ... but you could almost envision it as putting the scene into slow motion. That seems pretty cool, except maybe only for the first round.
  6. I want that so bad, but I can't bring myself to hope it'll ever happen ?
  7. I too am running an Android game with the Worlds of Android book. You fellas want to hop on a dedicated Discord server to talk shop?
  8. What's a good way to evaluate the projected usefulness of different skills in your campaign before you start? What are some parameters for balancing careers? How about a big list of careers with no titles? Which combination of PC roles work well for which kinds of settings? You know, gimme party types like, let's say Standard: Tank, Striker, Medic, Talker or Dungeon Crawl: Fighter, Cleric, Wizard, Thief. What defense rating is comparable to what soak value? You know, all the stuff FFG has in spreadsheets for creating new content themselves That's what I want. Oh, and setting books. Keep those comin' too (i.e. TAKE ALL MY MONEY PLEASE).
  9. Seems like the two previous posters didn't quite understand the system. Copy the text and add your own info so everything is contained in one post: USA USA — Cleveland, OH — c__beck USA — Poulsbo, WA— Lyinggod USA — Seattle, WA — Noldorian USA — Darlington, SC — Kakita Shijin Europe Norway — Oslo region — Morridini
  10. Well, I got Xanathar's Guide to Everything as a birthday present today. Buying me D&D books is actually a pretty good idea since I'm unlikely to already have them ? I do have the three 5e core books somewhere, Volo's Guide to Monsters, a few published adventures ... has anyone already done the leg work for playing D&D with narrative dice? If I make a "conversion" myself it will be minimal, substituting narrative dice with the smallest number of changes possible.
  11. "Themself" makes my eyes bleed. In any rules text I write I'm going with "she".
  12. Now that there's a lull in expansions I would love to watch you guys build a Crane deck together. Please?
  13. @Tabris2k Hey, you @ss, I appreciate how you mitigated the offense of your complaint with a cordiality the internet tends to lack ? Then again, I didn't see it before the edit ?
