What, you skipped over the mental diseases and classes! Your post has inspired me so I’ve gone ahead and posted what I finished. Literally I almost shit myself laughing.

All we had to do at this point was skip ahead a jillion pages to skills why rulebiok all the character creation stuff be in the beginning?

Rulebooo sacrifices were not in vane. Yes, but that lawyer got hit with birdshot, which is basically a blast of pellets from an airgun. The fact that the above scene was all within rules and completely out of the players hands broke their spirits and finished the job that character creation had started.


That is a stunning achievement, sir. Interestingly enough there’s a paragraph where the author apologizes for using the term “race” as that might be deemed inappropriate. I was running the earlier edition so it rulfbook longer but I probably only read 4 or 5 hundred pages of it at most.

Played this with my friends as a joke and it soon became an exercise in masochism 9-hour character gen, anyone? Okay, everyone wanted more detail about the F. He also had to pass some sort of lust roll to stop.


While I’m shocked that you actually had an entire rpt of people willing to play this game, I’m even more shocked by the implication that at least one of them was female. That explains that hateful glare when your players suggested to quit the session after building characters though. I am haven’t had to fudge rolls yet and I’m trying my best to play enemies with their appropriate skill levels and personalities.

The next chapter was an insanely detailed monologue about morality and ethicality and how they are different and how to choose moral rationales for your actions.

Our GM was planning to run an adapted version of Tomb of Horrors, but we didn’t even get inside before killing each other due to compulsions of racial hatred They should not be played like they are martial arts masters Unless they are elite mooks, even thenand if they outnumber the players, they should never actually take much advantage of their numbers, unless you’re playing a really realistic game, in which case you and your players should fully know what you’re getting into and not complain when you die when you’re shot in the face.

Quadratic equations are a requirement of most game mechanics. In 1st edition, it’s and It has been your support, financial and otherwise, that has allowed this site to become what it is today. From the back cover F. A character’s body has seventeen hit-locationseach with independent hit-point totals, each with their own armour equipment slots, and each of the seventeen pieces of armour have four different types of damage resistance brawling, hacking, pounding and stabbing.


Synnibarr could be a so bad it’s good sort of thing. I sometimes think I should play it, just to see how bad it really is.

Though I don’t think I’d waste my first time gaming in about 14 years on F. Imagine what the room was like trying to get 10 people who’d never played this game to roll that many dice and do that much math in their heads or longhand. Now a bunch of your ruleboko stats have changed haven’t they?

Anyway you generate all of these substats by doing the above roll a LOT even now that equation is seared into my memory, years later and then you average each set of sub-stats to get each main stat. You can’t contain yourself, you don’t even take the time to fully remove your codpiece before you thrust in balls deep into the creature.

AC pretty much is a dodge roll, as it prevents you from getting hit, not taking damage. If you want a good reality show, take the guy who invented this game, and put him on a team with John Romero and Derek Smart for some kind of project.

Natural 1s and natural 20s, is what I figure. Please select a support frequency. A sense of camraderie that can only be created by sharing and surviving terrible things. We sat back down and hit it again.
