Re: Cidri Genesis

Wasn't Big Planet a thing once upon a time (by Jack Vance, even, if I recall correctly)? And, if memory serves, lack of metals in the planet composition was why the big planet could exist without...

Re: New TFT Adventure - The Chaos Triads

I just want to say that the critique of the module published over on the TFT Facebook page seems just flat out wrong to me. The figures look fine, and should print well. I'll admit that color would...

Re: Cidri Genesis

Why? More importantly, what's the difference? "Technology of a significantly advanced state is indistinguishable from magic."

Re: TFT Campaign Ideas

Yep! Same here. By the time I was done, I actually had well over 300 NPCs that I could just shuffle and bring out as many as were required. If the players had already fought one that popped out, I...

Re: Future Kickstarter Speculation thread

If I were a betting man, I'd bet it's going to be a bestiary, with maybe some stretch goals involving new critter-counters and maybe some new dry-erase megahexes. Though having a "wilderness...

Re: TFT Campaign Ideas

Welcome!

Sanctuary is a good place to start, though you'll have to actually spend some time re-working most of the characters, since they have enormously inflated attribute totals (they had to, in...

Re: The Fantasy Trip Live on Kickstarter Now!

i'm pretty sure it's the one on page 4 -- some of the comments wouldn't make a lot of sense, otherwise! ;-)

Re: TFT Campaign Ideas

You should check out Dark City Games modules; especially the one that expands on their campaign world -- Fire in the Streets -- they have a very nice set of TFT-compatible races on there, including a...

Re: How are you handling stealth in combat?

I'd think the better system would be to determine if anyone has a line of sight to you at the moment you shoot (as opposed to "when they are looking") -- they see the arrow and it's general point of...

Re: TFT Beastiary Suggestion

That's pretty much true -- partly because the original combat system was so weirdly built in the first place, and then they just piled exceptions upon special cases upon unique capabilities until it...

Well, I for one, will be very much looking forward to seeing your take on it. I need to break out my PDFs and start looking again. (That's probably one of the big reasons why I didn't even think...

Re: TFT Beastiary Suggestion

Fortunately, TFT is so simple that it's usually very easy to design a new monster. If all other inspiration fails, just find an old one that is reasonably close, tweak it a bit (or even just re-skin...

Re: How are you handling stealth in combat?

What if you shoot out of the cover, without leaving it in the first place (that is shoot out of the brush/bush you are hiding behind or the (real) shadow you are concealed in?

Re: TFT Beastiary Suggestion

Regarding "challenge ratings," I'm generally against them. They are a mechanism that is purely meta and should be avoided as much as possible. In general terms, a GM can "balance" scenarios...
