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 Advice on balancing a “Super Powers” Savage Worlds Game?
I don't understand the problem, because this doesn't sound like Savage Worlds at all: "I've found it hard to balance SW before since it allows players too much and offers very few in option for "Boss" and minion crafting". (Emphasis on the confusing part.)

comment What changes should I use for a Human with Type Outsider instead of Humanoid?
Coming from another world is different from coming from another plane. Which is it? (Another world would be the same plane, and not make you and Outsider under any interpretation.)

comment What happens if you are shut in a Quartermaster's Chest
@GMNoob "Fair?" No, I'm saying it's a matter of opinion, there is no RAW for this item and cannot be any because that is not how magic items work in AD&D, and the AD&D RAW is "you are supposed to make it up, not me."

comment How to write an adventure where the primary focus is the characters being hunted
Maybe? But things like "40' move" and "Cloudkill" are out of place without even a token of translation into GURPS terms. It holds back an otherwise good answer.

Noting the GURPS tag, perhaps translate the D&D systemisms into generic or GURPS terms?

How does that look as a compromise title?

try this on for size as a compromise title?

comment Which spells do Wizards get at lower levels than Sorcerers?
No problem! Mixed math and English is hard to get right; I had to check my fix several times to make sure it was right. Besides, it gave me the excuse to use proper multiplication and minus signs instead of x and hyphen. :)

comment Where to look for inspiration?
After the edit, it sounds like you're looking for recommendations for a comprehensive guide, but it's unclear about what. Are you looking for a guide on adventure writing, on campaign creation, or on world creation? Those are three different topics, but asking for recommendations of books/articles about one could make for a good question.
