Re: Scarlett Edmunds and the Mummy

Great story. I should probably start rolling Ord NPC vs Ord NPC from now on :-) Just one point though: unless you're house-ruling it, Supporter doesn't add to the dice total but to the action total. The only thing that adds to dice totals are other dice. Yeah. I was unclear on that when we first st...

Scarlett Edmunds and the Mummy

I just started running "The Godbox" and the party was headed back to Fort Washington with the refugees from Henson Creek Manor. Based on the writing, I decided that young Scarlett Edmunds was the adventurous sort. We've been playing weekly since the Core rules previews came out , so my cre...

Re: Nile Empire Battle Maps

Since I run my game of Roll20 I like to find both thematic images and battlemaps that I can use. Aysle and Living Land were pretty straight forward, there's a lot of generic D&D-esque and Jungle art out there. When we start looking for "30s Pulp Style mixed with Ancient Egypt" is wher...

Re: 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 :) Top end poker chips are all clay. The less e...

Re: Nile Empire En Media Res

I run my games like episodes of a TV show. So, I start all my sessions in medias res unless they are continuations or a previous session. I give the players an overview of the mission and have them tell me what has happened up to this point. Any actions are started then. I don't deal with retroactiv...

Romance in Tharkold and the Nile Empire Bugbear

I don't usually share my sessions, but yesterday's game was wild and worth sharing. Background: I have a table of seven players and one follower ⋅ Core Earth American Marine ⋅ Tharkold Russian Occultech Trooper ⋅ Cyberpapacy Sikh Swordmaster ⋅ Pan Pacifian Psi...

Card Management Solution

I have a large gaming table, but kept having an issue with storing my decks from game to game. So I picked up a pair of blackjack shoes. http://silentempire.com/graphics/torg_shoes.JPG There's room for expansion and the shoes are easier to draw from than a box. If you're interested, you can find the...
