    More Monsters?

    I suppose I'd better get the flavor text and illustrations ready. Let's see if I can make this thing happen.

    More Monsters?

    They are specific to my campaign, but some might find a home in yours. new demons, variant trolls, the emotion-themed Exarchs of Hate, Joy and Pain. Some normal animals you don't see in other works. Wyverns... Undead Wyverns... icy wyverns, flaming wyverns...

    More Monsters?

    Do we need more monsters? I have ~190 critters at hand, and I wondered if they'd be welcomed? I'm going through the document now, adjusting stuff and thinking about selling it. Maybe get some illustrations going as well. I might just post it for free, as I have some other stuff.

    Gamma World Hero?

    Chew on this, ya mutant freaks! I was working on this right up to my wife's cancer diagnosis. I sort of associate it with her condition now, and have no real intention of finishing it. Want the Word doc? Might hand it over. I've stolen some talents from somewhere. If you recognize your work. You have first my apology and second my promise to remove it. Other than stuff obviously ripped from Gamma World, all of this is me. Gamma Terra Public.pdf
  5. Here's a thing. My buddy Chris is here in Indy for Gen Con, and I can't go, so I thought I'd whip up a dungeon for a special episode of my long-running (1986) Caleon game. Quick Background: A lost sword is now the hands of the vile wizard Dragon Mask (aka Chadros Fane). He and his cult swiped it from some ants. The PCs are sent by this hive of semi-intelligent ants to return Fane alive to the Ant Queen; they can keep the sword, she can't use it. She just wants revenge on him for killing all those pupae. Dragon Mask worships my weird version of Bahamut from Arabic myth. This thing references my 561-page Campaign Guide, so pardon me, but it's very local. Fits really nice into my "Sea of Dragons/Forbidden City of Tsang" arc that I'm running presently, but you might have trouble making it fit in your game. There are numerous references to Fantasy HERO products of various editions.. The maps use hexes, but this is more of a design choice than cartography, really. Makes them nice to look at. I'm not quite sure of the scale. Probably 2 meters. Anyhow, a work in progress. Feedback is appreciated. Things to do: Actually edit the thing. Work on NPC Complications Create the Pillar of the Dragon artifact Balance Chadros Fane to my party. Create the Symbol Traps (Triggered by looking at them, I suppose) Assault on the Dragon Cult.pdf
  6. My Players gang up on my Bad Guys. So I've created a list of abilities to handle this situation. The powers are named for various members of the Control Freak World Tour, a group that has been around in one form or another since 1984. "In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed." --William Ernest Henley, Invictus In an effort to keep the Bosses/Elites/Weird Lieutenants alive. One or more of the following Powers may be present on Maelstrom Campaign villains and Key NPCs. The cost for these abilities will be recorded as usual.

    Traveller Hero is BACK!!!!

    My CD arrives tomorrow. So psyched. (Is that still a word?).
  9. I started with Kythros, Saduria, and the Rumallan Empire and never left them. I bought the others, but I expanded upon FH 1E so much its hard to think of it as the work of another now. I don't think I'd buy a new setting at this point.

    Anyone Have PA Hero yet?

    Re: Anyone Have PA Hero yet? I like it. I think I'm going to just lay back and rip off Gamma World or S.T.A.L.K.E.R. wholesale. Both are very possible with this book. My only complaint, and I'm really being silly complaining at all, is the amount of space used for settings. I'm pretty sure most folks are going Twilight:2000, Gamma World or Road Warrior, and the settings just take up too much space for my taste. That said... I do love this book.

    Ripping off the Late Roger Zelazny...

    Re: Ripping off the Late Roger Zelazny... I was thinking along those lines as well. That would be an seperate slot. wouldn't it? Mind Link, Teleport, Extradimensional Teleport, I believe that brings the cost per person in any given deck to 3. I'm very sleepy... so I'll do the real math later. Now, would you allow a character to draw any person for 3 pts and add them to the deck, or just use those 3 slots to call and teleport anyone who they'd made a PS: Artist roll "against?" Sure you'd have to keep a list, but it didn't seem like a huge investment to make a trump, from, say, a sharpened spoon and a dirty wall. I think balance demands a point cost for each card.
