I feel that GM'ing anything for my kids makes me a better GM.  They tend to throw things out that most adults wouldn't do and then you have to react to that.

Me = Me
G = My then 8 year old son playing Regdar from the WotC 3.5 beginner's box.

Me: Ok, so Regdar comes around the corner and is face to face with a lizard man who stinks really bad.
G: Um... I run away.
Me: O.o
Me: Are you sure?  I think you can take this guy.
G: Nope.  I'm outta here.  It's dark and spooky and the stinky-lizard man might hurt me.
Me (after a moment of thought): That's entirely reasonable.

That game needs conflict so it derails without it.  Now, with Little Wizards, I've had to think outside the box on more than one occasion.

Me = Me
M = My then 4 year old daughter.  (Almost five.)

Me: Your friend's cat ran away.  What do you do?
M: Go find it.
Me: How?
M: I'll cast a spell so I can talk to my cat.  (Her familiar.)  (Rolls and ends up with a complication; decided that she can talk to animals but not people.)
Me: (Now playing two cats, a dog, a bird and very confused people who are hearing her bark, meow and squak.)
M: You're funny daddy.

It was awesome!

OK, so simple guise it is.  Any rolls needed for this task?

"So, my current laborer guise may well be fine.  If questioned, I can always say I was looking for some extra coin and didn't ask questions."  With a smile, he adds, "And the innkeeper will gladly tell them how pathetic my attempts at earning money have been.  Long story."

Ludomaster is playing an 'retired' Steel Falcon and abolitionist priest of the Drunken Hero. as a note for you Ludo, Calienites don't really go in for robes per say. 'Formal' vestments are a brown tunic or robe with a wine red stole bearing the image of a tankard. Most priests just use the stole or a real mug.

Ah, got it.  So, a set of (presumably) clean robes in the pack for when he has to get all fancy formal.  That makes more sense to me.

So, if I understood the previous post correctly, then he can have the rapier OR the tankard (buckler) but not both.  I'm good with that.  I'm going to go rapier.  As cool as the idea is, I'll still with just the rapier.

So, Gear, take II
Rapier - Alignment Weapon - free (we'll style it as the weapon he used to liberate himself from his captors)
Reinforced Moderate Padded armor (DR1, Cold 5, Edged 2, DP 0, ACP 0, Speed 0) - 50s
Rations - 1 pack / 7 uses - feed self - 5s
Booze - 1 bottle? / 3 uses - reduce Shaken by one grade - 15s
Doctor's Bag - Use Medicine - 20s
Backpack - +2 STR for carrying - 10s
Tent - Heat/Cold 4 - 10s
That's 100 sp.  If I can have a few more things ...
Torches (5) - Dim light (30 ft radius); 1d4 fire - 2s
Whistle - signal (1 mile / 500 feet out/in-doors) - 2s

Is that a better listing for gear?

Has everyone else been watching Agent Carter? It's amazing, go watch it.

Finally caught up on it today.  Excellent so far.

I'm puzzled why they chose to make the Agent Carter one-shot the end point rather than the prelude, especially given how the two people who founded SHIELD spend this series being accused (and actually guilty) of treason

Drama?

I'm happy to delivery the message.  What guise is best?
22  Community / Play-by-Post / Re: [OOC] Way of the Wicked on: February 16, 2015, 11:46:06 AM
Does the town have a messenger service of some sort?  Duplicating the livery of such a company would grant a certain legitimacy and might give the servant some haste to their efforts.  After all, random person delivering a message might not carry the same weight as an official messenger.  Alternatively, Lars could assume the guise of a Mitran Priest again.  That would lend the needed heft for the message but might draw unneeded attention.

Absolutely brilliant!

I'm feeling a bit useless at the moment.  (Presumably, so is Lars.)  What's the chance of their being an Asmodean cult or folks sympathetic to the cause?

Ahh, well, bring on the duel then.  When were the lovers supposed to be together again?

Lars takes a break from studying the Contract to stretch his legs and see if any of his compatriots are about the inn.
27  Community / Play-by-Post / Re: [OOC] Way of the Wicked on: February 13, 2015, 10:17:44 PM
It's a minor thing so it's not critical; however, I'm curious how Lars' (seemingly) failed attempt at impressing the innkeeper went.

Oh, right, sorry... 1d20+3=17. She is not impressed. You get the distinct impression the moment your coin runs out, you will be run out.

On the up side, she is unlikely to report Lars as an Asmodean priest preparing for the invasion of the town ...

Quote from: Antilles
Ares: Don't forget you'll likely need spell points in reserve to deal with the other named characters in the tower... Assaulting the tower will be its own scene, so you'll go in with a full tank, but once we're committed it'll be a single scene.

So, I'm sure that I understand it, once we start attacking the tower, it's a new scene and the fight is on?

Re mermaids
Part of me would love to see one ride a kraken into battle.

I can't stop laughing at this mental image.  Thank you very much.

If the GM is still game, so am I.

Dude, don't sweat it.  That's wonderful news.  Break a leg!
