Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment How to fight the unseen, and still keep things interesting?
What do you mean the soup kitchen and the orphanage that teaching children literacy and jobs is run by agents of Sauron? So, to stop his cult from spreading, we have to destroy and kill children? But but but but but ... we are supposed to be the good guys ...

Cthulhu mythos is hardly locale's myths, fairytales, and legends.

comment Resources for a '30s Pulp Campaign set in the Caribbean
+1 For Wade Davis: A must read! One River is worth your time as well but focuses more on the Amazonian.

comment How can I more effectively use darkness in a dungeon?
Invest a day or so to go to your local caving group and take an induction course. Personal experience of caves will gives you a hell of a lot of things to draw upon. Wieliczka salt mines are a must to see if you are in Poland.

comment Are there any adventures designed specifically for younger children?
I would recommend any adventures of the RPG Toon as I think they are all suited. However, from a semantic point of view, this reads more like a system recommendation rather than an adventure recommendations and thus is a comment.

comment What theoretical breakthroughs are possible for necromancers?
What about switching from the Igor thing and going into the root of necromancy: knowledge from the dead?

I am more interested in background relevant for role playing within said setting but I agree with you that mileage can (read: does) vary. ^_~

I run my games systemless so have no problem with either Fusion or Active Exploits -- I just ignore those parts! ^_~

comment When is a shield wall a viable tactic?
+1 Very nice answer indeed. Phalanx were perfected by Philip of Macedonia and used to great effect by Alexander. The Roman legions were, in part, designed to overcome the phalanx which they did. Ah, military history is fun!

@DForck42: I know of spears that are stab safe but not of swords/daggers. Any links?

comment Any tips for two-weapon training in LARP?
@C.Ross: I have been in too many LRP unsafe fights because of douchebags that "adapted" what they learned via a filter of stupid in SCA/Historical martial arts. It is a good idea to look at those sources but remember that they are unsafe. This is not aimed against you at al, just a general jadedness of my part ^_~

Should add this as a book if you are interested in real life fighting. Schools and Masters of Fencing: From the Middle Ages to the Eighteenth Century at amazon.co.uk/Schools-Masters-Fencing-Eighteenth-Century/dp/…

If you wanted to do that, go find your local historical martial art place (mine is here: royalarmouries.org/what-we-do/clubs-and-societies/…) but what they will teach you will be LRP unsafe.

comment How well does “attractiveness” work as a stat?
It always came up in games I was part: put your lowest rolled score in it since it's so cheap to have it upped via minor surgery -- there are no ugly people (unless by choice) in Cyberpunk!

comment How to make magic items more interesting?
If you are going to have something that scale, just make sure it does a multiplier and not an addition. So, the sword bonus is 1.2 that of your skill -- at skill of 100, you get +20, at skill 10, you get +2...

Can you think of way to change this into an lethal attack spell?
