Re: Mood or Tone of the 'Dungeon Fantasy' setting, world...

I was trying to think of movies that might fit the DF idea, and oddly the one that came up for me was Guardians of the Galaxy. I know, that's sci-fi, not fantasy - but the idea of mismatched...

Re: Affording racial templates

This is why I house-ruled adding 20 points to the character creation budget, putting race selection first and removing the Cat-Folk template for my game. That way my players could play whatever race...

Re: Scholar variant: Wise Man

Someone already came up with a Scholar conversion to DFRPG (http://forums.sjgames.com/showthread.php?t=151537), in case you weren't aware of it. You could base your Wise Man concept off of it,...

Re: What would you have paid for five DF books on KS?

I did the $250 "I Want It All" backing level as well. And I bought two boxes, because in my experience one book for the table just isn't enough.

I really like the rules changes in DFRPG and would...

Re: Pyramid articles I'd like to see.

I'm actually working on prebuilds for druid animal companions, holy warrior divine companions (divine versions of hound and horse), and wizard familiars. I'm utilizing templates from DF5: Allies and...

Re: Considerations for slotting DGRPG into an existing setting

I think Dark Sun is a setting that would fit extremely well with DFRPG. The extra races (mul, thri-kreen, etc) could potentially be filled with the races left out of DF3: The Next Level, and Low-Tech...

Re: Alternate Wealth rules

I, too, was not completely satisfied with the Wealth mechanic as-is, so I created another advantage called "Connections" which only deals with the buying and selling aspects of Wealth. It has 3...

Re: [House Rules] Wizardly Spell List by Magery level

I went through and took a look at the prerequisites in the official spell list, and what jumped out at me was that most of the prerequisites seemed to indicate a mastery theme, but a skill-based one...

Re: [House Rules] Wizardly Spell List by Magery level

They didn't seem arbitrary to me; most of the prereqs seem to be essential components of the more advanced spells, i.e. needing to know Sleep to be able to cast Mass Sleep, or needing to know...

[House Rules] Wizardly Spell List by Magery level

For my house rules, I've gone through and reworked the Wizardly requirements for spells to (mostly) only require a level of Magery to be able to study and learn the spell. There are some exceptions...

Re: Druid Shapeshifting: Alternate Form or Spell?

That is a really well-done rewording, Eric. I don't know why I didn't look at it from that perspective; I saw something similar in a Pyramid article regarding Aura-based abilities for clerics a while...

Re: Druid Shapeshifting: Alternate Form or Spell?

I'd like for it to have a basis in the rules; the rest of what I'm coming up with does. I like the changes to ability presentation that Kromm came up with, where the under the hood is hidden but is...

Re: Druid Shapeshifting: Alternate Form or Spell?

You say that is simple? Your explanation seems more complex than what I quoted. :)

In all seriousness, that kind of point accounting seems wacky to me, and is what I'm trying to avoid. I'd like to...

Druid Shapeshifting: Alternate Form or Spell?

I'm trying to come up with a simplified way of implementing Alternate Forms as character advancement for druids in DFRPG, since Kromm introduced one type in the "Beast Flight" druid ability. But I'm...

Re: Holy Warrior's Heroic Might alternative

1d+3 gives a range of +(4-9) to swing damage, while 2d-1 gives a range of +(1-11). That seems a bit more "swingy" to me, to use evileeyore's term, which I'm not sure I like.

Can you elaborate a...

That's fantastic! I didn't even think about the attribute-boosting spells when I was coming up with these. I agree, that would be a really good way to simplify those spells and bring the effects...

Re: Holy Warrior's Heroic Might alternative

Re: Flame Lord missing?

I was thinking that this monster might be in the Adventure book that was written for DF - Mirror of the Fire Demon. But I was mistaken, that creature is listed as a Flame Servant Demon.

Re: Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game Discussion Thread

THANK YOU for stating this. I agree wholeheartedly; it is trivial to me to adapt a world setting for any system, because it is mostly fluff. I like the Palladium Fantasy world setting, but when I...
