#95820 Your next big thing

Posted by Slartibartfast on 26 April 2015 - 02:55 PM

I don't know. As I said I haven't really looked into the Deluxe edition. The Kickstarter page or BJB might be able to tell you more, when he gets his copy...

Nice shout out to team at HPL Literary Podcast! BJB does have a great voice for MR James protagonists. I believe that his voice is available free of charge if you check out episode 243 at hppodcraft.com

Yup. I've got to admit I've got so many PDFs to read now I'm not sure when I'll get the time. Although of problems to have this is a pretty good one #nerdworldproblems


As the bard eloquently put it, "Got 99 pdfs, but Amber Diceless ain't one!"

Worth looking at the app versions if you have an Android or iOS 'phone or tablet. Very nicely done.


I'm reluctant to try the app versions. I doubt it will be the same - how will I mark multiple pages with my fingers to keep my options open when choosing between dungeon corridors?

#93322 Empire of the Petal Throne - In Ka'dái Gully Session 01

Posted by Slartibartfast on 04 October 2014 - 11:40 PM

Don't they also need to boost their Strength stat to be better able to cast spells? BJB mentioned in one of the T&T recordings on the site that, by 6th level, a T&T wizard will have turned into Schwarzenegger. :)


In earlier editions yes :) My understanding is that it was a popular house rule to introduce a separate mana stat - this became canon in later editions.

I believe that this should generally be regarded as a Good Thing.

It seems to have contributed to a sort of primary stat blume however. The latest edition I have of TnT (7.5) has 8 primary stats. This seems a lot to me.

A side benefit would be that you would be much less likely to be attacked by mind flayers - they wouldn't want to eat a brain that had been Gonchong'ed, for much the same reason that W.C. Fields refused to drink water. ;)


If l remember my Out of the Pit correctly the Gonchong gave some pretty sweet stat bonuses (+2 SKILL and +4 STAMINA?) at the mere cost of your ability to take independent action.

Good old TnT has a novel solution for those fragile magic-users.

 

Put armour on them!
