Re: Referencing rules at the table

Given the concise nature of e.g. m20 Purest Essence as well as some of the more expanded rulesets, how does everyone typically look up rules at the table? I try to avoid looking up rules during play. if I can't remember the specifics of a rule, I generally just make ruling that seems fair. Keeping ...

Re: A Modern Bard (without magic)

I am trying to create an interesting version of bard for modern settings without magic. I must admit I am a bit stumped as to what 'powers' to give such a character. Any ideas or suggestions? By "without magic" do you mean "without any abilities that have magical effects" or jus...

Re: Should monsters also use hit points to cast spells?

Players use hit points to cast spells, should the same be true for monsters or would that make encounters perhaps too easy? What is balance-wise the best approach? In all the years Microlite20 (and variants) have been around, I don't believe I've seen this question asked. :shock: As I'm an old scho...

I was kinda thinking what happened in Baldur's Gate with Feeblemind and from what I read it would change the sight of the player, pretty much only able to see anything directly besides him. And at that point pretty much ignore anything else happening around him.

Sounds good to me.

Re: How to use Feeblemind on monsters with only hit dice?

Many monsters in Purest Essence don't have a MIND score. How to use Feeblemind in such cases? Any recommendations? Is the monster of animal intelligence or less (in your opinion as GM)? Then the spell really doesn't do much too it. If the monster is more intelligent (again in your opinion as GM), t...

Re: Rules Light RPGs Discord?

Possibly moderating... What would that commitment require? I typically overcommit myself, but if I can make the time to further rules-light and m20 I would like to try. I'm so NOT a chat person, so I'm not much help here. Basically, moderating a chat isn't much different than moderating a forum (en...

Re: Any experience with a unified XP/CR/EL system

The existing rule counts up all the EL for each successful challenge/encounter, and each PC receives that amount. Maybe it's just an artifact of my time playing D&D, but why would this be the case, rather than dividing the EL amongst the party members? Maybe the math justifies it, but looking a...

Re: Flexible magic/spell systems (for m20 variant)

In this world all magical items are created by embedding an enslaved demon into it in a particularly cruel and horrible manner. I have thought often about how to create such a magical system, and make it interesting to play. This is somewhat similar to the magic system in Chaosium's first Elric gam...

Re: Looking for advice on designing a very basic RPG

I never did get on well with Google Docs! I've edited the post to update the link and here it is again :: https://docdro.id/Th3F7qv There's not a lot to comment on yet, especially as this is the first time I've read the underlying Simple Game System. However, your races and classes seem workable.

Your Google doc isn't public so us run of the mill people can't read it. :shock:
