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

OK, so this has been a minute. But believe it or not I have been ruminating on this, although it took me some time to try to wrap my head around the math for it. And the result I've come up with is actually really interesting. Note: Again, I'm undertaking this exercise in an attempt to put an m20 ru...

Referencing rules at the table

So I've been going down the rabbit hole of at-the-table reference material lately, specifically things like home-made cheatsheets. 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? Page through t...

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

I think part of the way m20 Purest Essence offsets this for PCs is by starting them with STR plus 1d6 HP (if memory serves), providing more fuel for casting even from 1st level. So one option is to do the same for NPCs. Both of your suggestions also seem sound, as does perhaps Mana Points or somethi...

Re: Rules Light RPGs Discord?

Dang, well, in the event "near real-time" monitoring isn't required, I'd be willing to pitch in. I could check in, say, once a day, but with my job I definitely can't keep an eye on it even sporadically throughout the work day. I don't install or do anything remotely not work-related on my...

And yet I'm totally enjoying making this game! (And if I'm able to, I might be able to get a preview up.)

Noice.

Any experience with a unified XP/CR/EL system

Ahoy! So I've been thinking about the existing m20 EL mechanic, and wondering if it can be improved. Two shortfalls as I see them are: 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&am...

Re: Rules Light RPGs Discord?

For some reason I'm just seeing (or maybe acknowledging) this.

I'd be interested in joining for sure.

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.

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

Perhaps I just don't understand the Magic Schools. Are they really different schools or more like styles? I am thinking, is this like different martial arts 'schools' which all have certain concept in common while having uniquely different aspects as well? Or are they really different and How? I us...

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

I like these ideas. It is not necessarily a 'simpler' mechanism than the Vancian system of D&D (which I detest on multiple levels) so much as 'logical'. It makes sense. If I am going to have to learn something I would like it to be logical. While it's certainly not as easy as basically "do...
