Re: Inventing Combat Techniques

I think the fact that the resolution of a strike (punch, kick or other strike) is much more self-contained than of a grappling action is the reason why grapples are more complex in RPGs. You strike,...

Re: Single-Gender Races

Why does it work better? Is there something wrong with the single-sex species of male-only clams which lives in one of our oceans?

Re: [Basic] Advantage of the Week (#17): Brachiator; Clinging; Super Climbing

Re: [Basic] Is a quarterstaff obviously a weapon?

Applying a mathematical complication to the default, most common form of attack (blunt force, particularly of the sort easily available to all characters in one form or another) seems like bad...

Re: [Basic] Is a quarterstaff obviously a weapon?

Thou shalt not retroactively invalidate prior published stuff. Also, it makes no sense for a hard wooden object to have a worse penetration than a kick or a skilled punch (the default around which...

Re: [Basic] Skill of the week: Esoteric Medicine

I've been reminded some weeks ago that germ theory of disease has been an esoteric fringe theory for three hundred years before it became accepted by the mainstream medical community. I wonder if it...

Need cyberpunky reality shows but fear that they will be deemed 'unrealistic' by the players?

Re: Are there any Updated Running Rules?

So you don't find the Running skill overpriced for what it does (almost nothing) in 4e, particularly for Fit or Very Fit people?

Re: Body Language vs Detect Lies

I'm here because of bot suspicion investigation, but anyway:

Re: speaking like a native

Re: Are Powers Overpriced?

There's a whole uFAQ post collecting examples of what it does.


And yet people do take it in Kromm's campaigns, and it wasn't meaningless despite your opinion about the trait.

Re: Are Powers Overpriced?
