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)

Yeah, pretty much what I said at the same time as you.

@GMNoob: Oh yes. I did not mean that it was a bad idea -- HellBoy springs to mind -- just that a horror element can be done with just reality.

I find it much more horrible that the Nazi were humans, just like us. Who can say that under the right (read: very wrong) circumstances one would not have fallen for it?... Here lies distilled nightmares.

@DForck42: If it is too subjective/discussiony then how can I improve it so it is not?

@DForck42: I do have a black light already. It is a really good choice since it allows for a dark atmosphere and provides plenty of light on paper so you can see what you are writing.

comment Statless & diceless systems
Feel free to ask it as a question. The short answer is this: You let the players describes actions and/or goals of what they are trying to achieve. The oppositions does the same (in your head if you are the referee) and you describe what happens as a result of those actions based on what you know of the abilities of the characters (PC + NPC) involved. Making sure the player understands or has an idea of the level of skill of the other person is a good idea but not necessary. Sure, no characters will die because of combat but dying is boring from a story point of view.

Surely you should tailor your campaign to whatever classes your players have picked?... Just a thought really ^_~

comment Treasure that's hard to put a price on
@Tynam: It has been a long time since I looked at D&D rules in whatever incarnation. Quiet a lot of other games do have variable prices depending on settlement size, rarity of primal material, and so on. All in all, too complex and not a viable model so you may as well make it up on the fly.

+1 for excellent adventure seed idea. Clearly, a third lord must enter the fight wanting the coconut shells to mimic horses...
