I've been involved in one aspect or another of the adventure games hobby for the past twenty-five years. Started playing in 1987. (First game? Champions, followed by CyberSpace, the Iron Crown cyberpunk game for Space Master, their sci-fi Rolemaster spin-off.) Was hired by InQuest Magazine in 1996, where I started my editorial career. Since then, I've done work for Green Ronin, Malhavoc Press, Dream Pod 9, and White Wolf. I managed two different game stores in the metro Boston area in the 2000s, and am now working primarily freelance. Still gaming after all these years.

I have a weakness for good coffee and bad puns.

comment When exactly do I make a saving throw?
@Circusfreak Yup. The description of the spell will say "Save" (and what happens if you make your save) or "Save ends.")

comment When exactly do I make a saving throw?
@Circusfreak Understood. The 4e way to handle that would be to have the save at the end of the round to become immune for the rest of the encounter, rather than at the beginning of the round to be immune for the coming turn. If he wants to have you save more often, then perhaps successful psychic or psionic attacks could grant an additional save.

comment Question about the Assassin (Executioner) Ninja Build
Hi, Mike, and welcome to the site. I'm not sure I understand the "house rules"/"new rules" part of the question. What problem are you trying to solve that the rules aren't handling currently?
