I'm working on Fate Looms, a tabletop simulator specifically for Fate.

Useful things:

  • Making the Tough Decisions: An author talks about how to work in harmony with your group as a player, based on things that should in hindsight have seemed obvious. Worth reading word for word. It's good enough it's the single piece of mandatory reading at my game table.

I have a free reroll.

comment Are there any free (or close to free) combat- and rules-heavy RPGs?
@TheDiamante Consider that playing Dresden Files is very rules-involved, and it's a system for storytelling. Hence why we need you to specify what you want the rules to be for.

I'm saving both your comments. Thank you, Corion. I need to redraft this soon to be more to the point about the keywords and implications here. And yeah, Corion, if this item doesn't actually change the keywords... the effect does basically nothing. :(

comment Targetting empty squares for area burst attacks?
@JohnW That's not what the rules state. The rules let you use each of your daily powers once and only once per day - that is why they're called daily powers. If you can use two daily attack powers at level 6, it is because you'd have two daily attack powers, each of which you get to use once. Unless there's some sort of huge rules change I'm unaware of?

comment Roguelike Tabletop
@Stolas Character development and campaigns can occur in, say, Warhammer 40k and its cousins (though I would not recommend any of them unless there's ones that don't cost crazy amounts).

comment How can I make things easier on my dyslexic and high-functioning autistic players?
@Sardathrion It won't be as easy to answer, but I think this should remain one question about a group with dyslexic and autistic players. That issue is greater than the sum of its parts. At the very least, it sets the tone that this isn't just one person in the group.

comment Is there a way to learn someone's level in game in DnD3.x?
None of these will indicate the level of a character, though, in a comprehensible way. A character can think "this person is very experienced" but that doesn't mean they will recognise "this person has a character level of 17". One's level is not necessarily a concept to them that they can be aware of and that exists ingame.

Quoted the weapon quote, and italicised terms for consistency (and because italics is semantically one of the best ways to highlight terms and keywords)

comment Wizards and Skill Powers in D&D4
Might be worth noting that these are corrections from the Class Compendium (I think). The original PHB1 doesn't specify it must be a Wizard power, and the PHB1 errata doesn't make that change either - Brian S is quoting the PHB1 truly. Before the update, the PHB1 Wizard could multiclass into any other class and use Spellbook to learn two of that class's daily and utility powers at a time.
