Re: No, seriously, which edition is better? 1E or 2E?

It's kind of a moot point The game is intended to be customized. If you like things from First Edition, carry them over into your Second Edition game.

Re: Cleric vs. Cleric - Party Discord?

PCs of vastly different alignments can form a functional party, and in doing so can create some enjoyable opportunities for roleplaying.
But having players who deliberately choose PC clerics that will antagonize each other, is probably more much trouble than it's worth.

Medieval combat

If by some odd chance you want to watch eight hours of armored fighters beating each other up, singly and in groups, look no farther:

Moving in Armor

Everyone knows that plate armor = encumbrance.
It's like having cinder blocks strapped to your torso, arms and legs, right?
Actually, no.

Re: What do you track?

I'm too busy with life to bean-count things like that.
I typically hand-wave that stuff unless there's a specific reason to keep track of something, like expensive or rare spell components, or ammunition or other consumables when the PCs are separated from a source of resupply for an extended period.

Re: The Tavern

Wolgemut is a traveling band from Europe. I see them every year at the Pennsic War. The Green Dragon is only a medieval tavern - which is to say a tavern catering to medieval folk - one week a year, plus whenever the site is used by the SCA. Other than that, it's used by whoever is using the campgro...

Re: The Tavern

It's called The Green Dragon.
There are several videos of the place on youtube. Search "Gulf Wars Green Dragon"

Re: PC dies. What does replacement come in at??

In order to keep the game flowing, and the new PC viable, the new PC needs to come in at a level where he can survive what is being thrown at the party. After all, why would an established adventuring party want to take in some weak rookie that they need to babysit all the time? But the rest of the ...

Re: The Tavern

The menu included bread and cheese, mead, beer and wine. There's also a flat top for cooking meat, although there was nothing cooking when I was at that end of the room. In the middle of the floor - you can just barely see it in the last photo - is a big iron fire pit which has a charcoal fire burni...

The Tavern

I was at Gulf Wars two weeks ago, which is an SCA event held in Mississippi. I had a blast, but the weather was very cold. A friend and I were walking home from a bardic gathering, and we were passing one of the few permanent structures on-site, which serves food and drinks, so she said: "'Let'...

The Walking Thread - Warning, there will be spoilers

Any fans of The Walking Dead TV show here? Let's discuss. Does anyone else wonder what would have happened if, when Negan knocked at the gates of Alexandria, someone inside had just shot him in the face instead of letting him in? Negan has clearly been keeping his group under control by the force of...

Re: New spells/items/classes, how do you introduce?

In my game items come into the game in the hands of foes, or possibly on loan from a friendly NPC. I haven't really brought in many custom spells, but they'd be brought into the game in a similar fashion. Perhaps by the players hearing stories about the spell and seeking out its creator, or by findi...
