    What Dijarian said. In my games, I try to gauge how important the combat is. If it's not very, or if I'm playing using only the Hub, then it's a simple Versus test. Winner take all. You might give...

    Hi Tiger:

    I think the rule of thumb is:

    Convert weapon speeds unwieldy, slow, fast to 1, 2, x respectively

    Double the speed modifier to get stride.

    That takes care of most of it. Any...

    The thought of this game ending is bittersweet.

    It makes me a bit sad, but also, I fully appreciate the importance of a good ending, and knowing when to stop. These characters have had a...

    Which brings the question to mind: How much in-game time has passed? I know there were two (?) Resources and Estate Management rolls in there sometime ago, and Irenka's child by Erastil has been...

    Aha! I KNEW it!! ... and my players are all like: "No, it's cool. Sometimes that happens..." :P :D



    Yeah. Makes sense. It might be luck of the dice. Though last time, Aedan's armor never...
  8. Range and Cover - From Distant Shores AP/rules commentary

    This is sort of an AP/rules commentary thing related to our long running From Distant Shores game, which I GM.

    We had our first experience ever with Range and Cover last night. Seemed like an...

    1. I use the Character sheets from the free download: https://www.burningwheel.com/store/index.php/core-books.html or, I believe there are a few nice character sheets still at...

    Sounds like you had some difficulty with that Persuasion test... When everything else fails, fall back on Intent and Beliefs. Beliefs inform your Intent. Articulating your Intent is what leads to...

    This is a really good point. The ONE thing I want to avoid at all costs is making the players even more risk averse... If they start fearing consequences and start refusing to roll dice or take...

    We play 9-11:30 pm

    It takes about 15 min to settle in, so we play about 2:15, then do Artha. Still, sometimes we go a bit over into 2:30, but not always.

    Our last couple of sessions have...

    I'll second this! Best function of the Forum is to discuss this stuff. At least, that's my favorite part :D



    Haha. Awesome. Go for it. It's why we play these games, right?




    Beautiful....

    I think it's also a function of the emergent nature of the game. Characters come in with BITs and a lot of the world is unformed, awaiting contact with those BITs. NPCs are limited to start, and are...

    True. That is RAW. They should know the obs and the risks before they roll, so they can spend Artha appropiately.

    I guess I've been doing the No Weasels thing because one of my players tends to...

    Good stuff, man. Good stuff.

    Love the Sorcery failure consequence. Love Zora's first belief.

    Question: Ivo backed off from summoning the ghost due to the high ob. You guys cool with that? Was...

    So, now that the files have been sent to the printers... may I ask what changes, if any, were made to the Art Magic chapter? :)

    Interesting spread of PCs! Politicians, soldiers, scholars, playwrights.

    Sounds like a fun time, with even a bit of PvP (Rupert shut down Jendrick?).

    I've been thinking that perhaps Transform is a subtype of the Trait effect? That'd be sweet, as those 2 are my favorite ones.
