Re: Doppelgangers

He was also an excellent DM. It seems only natural that someone who had also been a DM would perhaps be more cooperative and better at going undercover as Doppelganger than maybe a player who had never been a DM would. Still, the fact that after doing it once this man would be willing to put his ch...

Wow, he must have really enjoyed 'going under cover'.

I intend to have some more fun with this before we're done.

Have you decided if Ghalt is going to try to impersonate an NPC or maybe it's already happened?

Re: Doppelgangers

Anyway, as it just so happens, I am using a doppelganger in one of my 2E games right now. Xe's proving quite a thorn in the party's side. The doppelganger, whom the party only knows as "Ghalt" (a pseudonym, obviously), is a cleric of the god of chaos. The town the party lives in is dedica...

Went to access the site and all that came up was an error message. That's too bad.

Doppelgangers

I'm a little late posting this, but around Halloween I watched one of my favorite horror films, The Thing (2011). *Semi-Spoiler* The plot deals with an alien who can perfectly mimic earth creatures it comes in contact with. It got me thinking about the AD&D monster the Doppelganger (and Greater ...

Re: Fresh Starts??

Well, with 3 other players to chime in, i'd have 2 yes, 1 "leave it to my call", and 3 as yet not said anything. I think I'd wait until you hear from the other three players. Unless there is a majority, after every voice has been heard (and counting the 1 'leave it to your call" as a...

Re: It REALLY IS scary IMO

Have you seen the TV commercials for a software program called "Grammarly"? Even "Word" now offers suggestions while writing notes and formal/informal documents, The name "Grammarly" sounds vaguely familiar to me so I think I have at some point seen one of the commerci...

It REALLY IS scary IMO

Two years ago I 'upgraded' from a flip phone to a smart phone. I could text on the old flip phone, but the mechanics of doing it were so unwieldly that I rarely did. I don't text much to begin with, but one positive about the smart phone is that it does make texting easier (tapping the screen, inste...

Re: Chronicles of Trini Kurtz

What is it about online games you don't like? It's not that I don't like them, but due to time constraints it comes down to making a choice between spending time playing games or visiting my various hobby message boards and Facebook pages. I choose the latter. One nice change of pace about this gam...

Re: Chronicles of Trini Kurtz

Thanks for posting about your adventures Jaded, I am very interested in them and this game. I wasn't blowing smoke when I told Cole how awesome this game looks, but past experience has told me that online video games aren't right for me personally, so that's why I won't be joining in. I'll content m...

Re: NWN Screen Shots of (Arkuth PW) - Now Open to Public!

Damn, Cole, these screenshots look amazing to me. I find the 'Spawn' option for after a death to be interesting, a character negotiating his way back into the game world. One question about the sixth-from-the-bottom shot: what is the green substance? Some type of gas? Green Slime?

Re: Family woes.. Boo hiss..

Well it's very good that you've talked with your brother. It seems to me that him seeking help is a huge step in the right direction. Wishing you both all the energy and support you need for this situation.
BTW congratulations on making Baronet, the first one I've seen on the site.
