Interesting fact about the chips

Last game one of the players had the case for his iPad open and a chip fell against the magnetic closure and it stuck strongly enough for him to partially close the cover (to a 90 degree angle) without the chip moving. We all thought it was kinda cool :)

Re: Nile Empire Shipping notice

I thought I had for the LL but it turns out it was for the LL Map packs which I ordered with the Nile box :)

Okay...I'll stop panicking now :)

Re: Requisitioning multiple items

I use the following... 1) Once an item is requested then it's off the table. Whether the request was successful or not. "I just told your buddy no!" "You've got all I can spare" 2) I use the multiples of 10 for every 5 steps on the chart. So if they want 10 grenades (value 5) the...

Nile Empire Shipping notice

Are shipping notices still being sent out? I haven't received anything as of yet so just wondering if there is a way to check on things? I'm in North America, specifically Canada, and I know there was a delay.

Re: Old School Perspective

The only thing I would add would be to let your players know ASAP about rules changes or rulings you're making. Players make their characters based on the rules in the book and (reasonably) expect to be able to do the thing the rules say they can do. If that's not how things work in your game then l...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

It was so funny that one of the hardest things my beta level party has dealt with so far were the tunnel whips. Group's dice decided to betray them, my dice turned hot and the opponents were considered so minor the players didn't want to spend resources on them. It was very much like a comedic actio...

Re: Aysle Kickstarter Launches July 2!

What GeniusCodeMonkey said :)

There's a game that literally charged people to access the forums and thus developers that doesn't have near the response time and back and forth that this here does. The box will get here when it gets here. As will the Aysle one as will the Cyberpapacy one etc.

Re: Too Much Tactical Analysis

I'm fond of the PbtA approach. 1. Player describes what they do that leads to the roll. 2. Roll and determine outcome when the GM asks . 3. Narrate the outcome. In simplest terms this breaks down "I stab him with my sword" into two parts. The intent "I attack him with my sword" a...

Re: Too Much Tactical Analysis

I 100% agree that it's a player issue more than a game thing. I have one player who will over analyze everything to make the absolute optimal choice but it's in every single game. I know it's tied to their anxiety issues so I don't make a big deal of it. I have noticed improvements over time so ther...
