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.

revised How do we tell our new GM that we don't like some elements of his campaign?

comment How do I remove a poorly-designed rule without my players feeling cheated?
@starwed That's a different problem that should be solved at the source, though, not allowed to affect how the group chooses their houserules.

comment Are there D&D random encounter tables where # monsters encountered is dependent upon party size?
Be aware that existing random tables have numbers on the high end of the range, not low. This would make existing tables generate 100 orcs for a small party and 200+ for the larger party, which is the kind of relative difference the OP is asking for, but in absolute numbers goes in the opposite direction than requested. Consider a modification to account for that?

Nice find! Who needs the official sheets when such a nice alternative is available?

comment Explaining the Wall Run merit from the Parkour merit tree
@Scrollmaster They do still: "Climbing an object requires a number of successes in an instant or extended action. Your character can climb 10 feet with each success rolled." So a 10 foot wall needs one success and a 30 foot Wall Run needs three. The instant/extended action difference is a matter of how long it takes.

comment Formula for scaling weapon damage with size?
I have not done any actual math on it, but I get the impression that size:damage is related logarithmically rather than linearly.
