Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR. Particularly fond of GMless and short-form games because they suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment What is a “funnel”?
They play simultaneously, yes. No, it doesn't restrict them to that. It's widely forgotten that D&D was originally played with large parties like that. In a character funnel the idea is that these are pre-hero normal people of some sort, but nothing dictates what sort or that they must all be of the same sort.

comment Rule-lite titles available in Japanese (PDF would be even better)
@Flamma Not to mention, Japan appears to be just as fascinated with pseudo-European medieval fantasy as European-derived cultures appear to be fascinated with pseudo-Japanese Heian-period fantasy.

comment Can you use a readied action to act on a different round?
This post seems to be more a discussion of the issue rather than an answer that solves the issue.
