Re: Tweaked Assassin

Hi Chuck, I agree about the thief skills. Despite the Assassin being a thief subclass, it's nice to have some differentiation. On the assassinate table, I always felt uncomfortable with the auto-kill for 1e assassins, I think it reduces what should be a fairly elaborate process (planning and carryin...

Re: Into the Dungeon of Graves

Great reports. Nice use of speed/silence/invisibility by your players, when you come up against some of those higher-level monsters it's pretty unlikely you can survive without such cleverness. I have to take another look at RA - I haven't paid too much attention to it as it's so large, and I only h...

Re: Chapter7 ~ Escape from the Keep

Erwin will wait out of sight and rush in to assist if Otis attacks, hoping to attack the guard from behind.

Re: Into the Dungeon of Graves

I tried to upload maps here, but the files are apparently too large. If anyone is interested in seeing them, I can send via private email attachment. How big are the images? I can tweak the size limits if they are not huge, also you could scale down or export the images to jpeg to get a smaller siz...

Re: Into the Dungeon of Graves

Thanks for letting me know about the PDF attachments - I've updated the board settings to allow the most common document types. Very interesting house rules - the survival at low levels is greatly increased with the 20hp kicker. Am I right in assuming that the goal with the level limits was to run a...

Re: Chapter7 ~ Escape from the Keep

ALSO - Otis still has the Boar Spear, if Erwin can use that, it's his. I think he can, since he is a druid-like cleric, not a sharp-weapon-hating cleric. We'll let the ref clarify. Erwin will let Otis take the lead going down the stairs, and hang back out of sight to allow for the initial contact w...

Re: Chapter7 ~ Escape from the Keep

"Let's try to sneak up on the guard, and rush him, unless you have a better idea?" Erwin whispers to Otis. He steps slowly down the stairs, trying to get a glimpse of the guard.

Not sure how best to try this, maybe the direct approach is best...
