comment How to deal with broken combos?
Ha! I just read that article & I laughed cause I totally had a Champion of Order in my last campaign & I had discovered that loophole after awhile! It didn't come up too often cause we rarely fought solos (even without that loophole we felt solos to be easy) but I'm sure I gave my DM a headache. He didn't complain though since, as stated, it rarely came up but I knew I was essentially "breaking" solo encounters & had he asked I would've obliged to a house rule to tone it down.

Make sure when you confront the player that it is in a non-hostile way and explain what you think is broken and why. If not they could just backlash and think they're fine and you're not dealing with the new power properly as the DM. I know that'd probably connect with point 3 of them not being reasonable but if you're not being reasonable when telling them about it then, well, no one's being reasonable and everyone loses.

Fun idea! While 3.5 specific, I'd be interested to see the answers and find possible ways to have them in other versions or games.

comment Inventory: How can you carry adequate equipment without bringing a caravan?
@SevenSidedDie While it is a non-modern setting, I'm also assuming it's a fantasy setting which while I don't expect "Gore-Tex and rip-stop nylon" I am expecting "Elven chainmail +3" and "sunrods" or something similar which would not be heavy =P @user1637 Ah okay, I am unfamiliar with GURPS weight and lifting. I usually assume D&D or it's style of weight management which tends to give a lot of weight lifting to a character

I'll have to take a look into that! Though I was hoping to not have to spend money going looking for something. Not to dismiss the Red Box or anything, definitely heard good things about it.

I like the unique bonuses for being each piece! I'd love to bring out a real chess board but I'm playing this game online so can't sadly. Still, gonna make the map look as much like a real chess board with chess pieces to simulate as best I can!

@Rent_ZHB That could also be done! Might be quicker but perhaps not as much exp for it.

Hmmm curious, how should a "mini-combat" go? I like the idea but having just a monster and a PC duel it out might take too long and bore the other players (or they might find it exciting, I don't know!). Maybe restrict their HP to a certain amount to speed up the duel? If they lost they could just reenter the board or maybe they just lose a healing surge and return at full HP.

@Lo'oris Hehe, yeah that was essentially the idea I was going for =) Was trying to think of different encounters that I thought were fun in video games & the Karazhan chess fight I thought was different & fun! Or as we used to call it "Free loot" encounter XD
