Seems two steps forward, one step back... My play test group has disappeared and a few new bugs have raised their ugly heads.

@DDL: I'm still around and watching the thread. I'm had to take on two new projects which is limiting my free time to respond. I have been creating various test characters to try and stretch the dataset to its limits but currently I'm not finding much in the way of showstoppers.

I'm waiting on the bugs (Code in PCGen) to be fixed, then I can get the set properly working.

What's the current state of play? (Just noticing that there hasn't been a reply since the end of February).

Hahaa, now I wanna invent an NPC Mage called Morganti! Mind if I borrow your name?  Tongue
I borrowed it from Steven Brust's Dragera novels so sure Cheesy

@Goblinerd: I use Morganti Steel to keep my players in line. Grin

From the Dragera novels, it's a form of intelligent soul-sucking enchanted steel. Just a cut is enough to destroy someone's soul and render them beyond resurrection. Downside of it is: it's detectable within a radius equal to 10x the length of the blade in feet (so a 1ft dagger is detectable within 10ft). Possession of one is punishable by death.

Also from the novels is something known as the Great Weapons. Think of Saberhagen's Swords or Green's Chaos Devices but made of Morganti Steel, highly intelligent and very willful.

In London, there's:
- The London Eye
- Museum of the Moving Image
- London Dungeon (recently moved to Waterloo next to the Eye)
- The Shard

If you want to do cultural sight-seeing, English Heritage do an Overseas Visitor pass that grants you free entry into their places. Then I'd recommend places like Audley End House, Reveiux Abbey, Fountains Abbey, Dover Castle, Mount Grace Priory, etc.

Yes if you don't mind. And I'll pester Andrew to allow you guys to edit the issues you report.

Noted. I'm starting to break them apart now ...

And I'm already pulling out hairs wondering why our "S" classes are giving me frustrations. I tested using the Captain, Assassin and Burglar, all of those worked nicely.

Interesting that you tested the Burglar okay yet my Nimble Human Burglar 5 is showing problems.

Windows 7 - please be aware of the permissions issue, I highly recommend using a non-default installation to avoid this pitfall.

I'm on Windows 8, plus I never use the default installation. A manifestation of OCD I suspect.

edit: okay, that's one issue split into the 9 individual issues. Have fun.

Yes please. One issue per JIRA, easier to manage.

Do you want me to split the current one out now Huh?

edit: dagnabbit, looks like I can't edit the issue to split them out.

Already been playing with it, already logged an issue.

Mind you, there are several different issues in a single post, should I have broken them out into single issues?

I'm assuming that you're looking at integrating all the core material - Core Rulebook, Adventure Companion, Call to Arms series?

So, Being Human UK Series 5... They're %*#!ing kidding, right?

Kidding about what?

I think he's referring to the fact that it's the final series.

Not sure about the bureaucracy you are thinking of ... although I did know I guy in 2nd Ed D&D who played a fat lazy Conjurer that would create an Unseen Servant just to go get him some ale.

I reckon he's thinking of the Magocracy of Glantri for the original Known World/Mystara Gazetteers.

I used the Schrodinger's contact concept.

"I need someone who can guide us through the catacombs..."

* Rolls and thinks.

"Ok, so you know this guy who you met at a dig on P329X who was friends with a merchant from P45G2 who had some dealings with this guy named el Fadir who does this sort of thing on this world. Give me a roll to see if you can track him down.

Isn't that the Kevin Bacon Rule?

Your day has been inadequately odd.  This will help:  Eminem - Without Me (Ragtime Remix)
My odd-quotient is now sufficient for several days.

Hear hear ... that was just surreal.

Here's a cool site I wanted to use for a fantasy city someday, a city based on a plug/pillar in an extinct volcanic crater: http://www.jessevandijk.net/g_08_76.html
Huh. That's very similar to a tomb I conceived for one of the old AEG Adventure Keep products (Out of Body, Out of Mind, for those interested). My volcano was still active though. Wink
I always that that was you adapting the prison from the D&D cartoon...
Ha! No, but that's funny.

You know something? I have that AEG module ... and it is awesome.
The players I ran it for, they absolutely hated it because the whole thing was just one giant deathtrap.
Mind you, they were not the most intelligent of players ... their idea of strategy was "hey diddle diddle, straight through the middle".

The dead tree version is like the natural birth of the RPG genre. PDFs are cesarians, easy, but with uncertain long-term implications.

I'll take it when it's ready to be born.

So, a baby born Caesarean is easier to clone? How does an epidural fit into all of this?  Wink

The epidural is the analgesic that lets you put up with the extraction from your wallet and to put up with the long shipping times.

Shields come and go during a several times during a scene, in a way that Vitality does not.  Calling the shields vitality also bumps into trouble with classifying biotic barriers and makes powers that don't work on shielded targets all but worthless.

So why not say that shields provide temporary vitality?

One of my favourite games is Corporation which has Hard Ion Shields (portable shields vs firearms basically) and Telepathic Shields. Both operate in the same way by providing X hit points which must be depleted first before damage is applied to the character.
