  1. The concept is as follows: The game universe has a "soundtrack" that is audible only to the audience and those characters who have spent the points on the appropriate sensing ability. Within this universe, those individuals who are important in the grand scheme of things each have a unique leitmotif (or motif for short) associated with them. The downside to having a leitmotif is, of course, that it makes it difficult if not impossible to have the element of surprise against enemies who can hear the soundtrack. As GM how much would you give characters for this as a DF?
  2. Note I said minimum penalty. If the local lord or magistrate is particularly miffed with you, your punishment could be much worse.
  3. This is for a fantasy setting in which magic is demonstrably real and potent and it's possible to perform spells and rituals to summon specific entities (monsters, demons, lesser deities, etc.). In many cities in the setting, there's a strict prohibition against summoning potentially dangerous entities within city limits. Breaking this law typically has a minimum penalty of either a year confined to the dungeon at the local lord's castle or a fine of 100 gold coins. Naturally, you'd also be on the hook for any property damage, injuries, or deaths the aforementioned entity causes if it goes on a rampage. The local lord reserves the right to grant onetime emergency exemptions in situations where summoning such an entity was necessary to prevent a greater catastrophe. For our legal eagles on the site, how reasonable would such a law be in your professional opinion?
  4. The Original Gobble-Tron was a mecha. It was totaled and its pilot was arrested. How the big metal turkey was rebuilt and who's at the controls is a mystery, especially since the original pilot is supposed to still be in prison for all the chaos and destruction he caused during the last Gobble-Tron rampage.
  5. It's once again Thanksgiving Day, the official holiday of roast turkey, stuffing, and peanut oil fires in the driveway. This year, Campaign City gets hit with a triple threat of giant turkey-themed monsters from years past: Gob-Lar the giant mutant turkey, Gobble-Tron the giant turkey mecha, and another group of crazy cultists summoned another giant demon turkey (and of course, got gobbled up shortly after completing the ritual). Each of the three is approaching town from a different direction, but are all head for Main Street! WWYCD?
  6. Night Mind's Candy Bowl for Halloween 2020. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUtMdfebeaoemngB9eE68ZkOhUYejdNZ_
  7. How about half-human hybrids like in the following example: Anna's mother is human and her father is a powerful being from another dimension (and indeed, the ruler of said dimension). She's still a child and thus hasn't yet matured enough to unlock the powers that are part of her genetic inheritance. Her father, however, gave her a means of summon help from his realm if she's ever in danger. One good, loud distress cry out of her and any would-be assailants will suddenly find themselves staring down a cadre of the beings who serve her father; or if they're particularly unlucky, Dear Ol' Dad shows up to deal with them in person.
  8. A reading of "Who Goes There?" by John W. Campbell (long, roughly 3 hours 12 minutes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6NBIS3m15E
  9. Also the scene where the Doctor pretends to be the President. His performance was unimpeachable. [rimshot]
  10. I can't take credit of that one, sadly. It originated on YouTube, where the Ban Bots are likely to home in on you like heat-seeking missiles if you dare say anything about the Corona Virus.
  11. Thanks to the Beer Buggery, the usual Halloween festivities may be cancelled in many parts of our world. Thus, I'm starting this thread so we can all celebrate the holiday here on the forum. Post your favorite spooky images, videos, and stories here...just don't overindulge in sweets and be sure you brush your teeth before bed tonight.
  12. How about beings who are the rulers of their own planets/dimensions? Might they be treated as visiting Chiefs of State while (peacefully) on Earth?
  13. HA +2d6, OIF (boots; -1/2), Only For Stomping (-?) In your opinion, what would be a fair value for the "Only For Stomping" Limitation?
