Re: What's the point - learning spell skills in Adventure Gu

I always thought there should be a few spells (cantrips, really) - and for that matter, a few simple combat commands - that can be learned through quests by all players. It would make things more interesting. And really it's 2016.. (this is more about the combat skills) a combat system that has a pl...

Re: What are you reading right now?

I really enjoyed Freakonomics. I second the recommendation.

Game of Thrones is on my list. It seems to be the talk of the town these days due to the television show based on the series.. but I rarely watch TV.

Re: Memories of Eden

My memories of Eden are more from an era than any specific memories. I really started interacting with her at a time when the Knighthood war system was extraordinarily taxing in terms of time and personal funds and Krynn had become all about the war machine and roleplaying had at the time diminished...

Re: I ask again..

Received a couple pms as well with the information as well... Really sad, tragic. Eden was easily on my 10 ten list of Genesis roleplayers. Maybe after the dust has settled I'll have to have Fourt come by the Halls and be theatrical about her loss. I don't think that's disrespectful is it? I think s...

Re: I ask again..

Wait.. I had to double take here. I didn't process this the first time I read it. Eden's player passed away? Am I reading this right? What happened? I feel sick. Just last week I sent her a message and I she had sent me a message back, I think inviting me for kahve, but I idled out and dropped it be...

Re: Discipline - The red-headed stepchild stat

There's that whole panic level thing, which I've always assumed is linked to discipline, but I've never felt that mechanic is used very much. I'd like to see panic used more frequently in the game. Attacks of intimidation and fear, dazes and disables (battlecries, spells, roars, etc), that increase ...

http://i43.tower.com/images/mm112514750/ascent-george-washington-hidden-political-genius-american-icon-john-ferling-hardcover-cover-art.jpg Fascinating read so far. I'm not sure I accept the author's thesis that Washington's humility was a facade, but the examination of his political maneuvering ha...

Re: Layman and craft guilds - Some thoughts

Not a layman alchemist guild - an alchemist *craft* guild, IMO. I'd love to see alchemy used across the board to distill herbs into a more pure format. So, I can herb the sargassum and eat it, or I can use alchemy to mix it into a sargassum elixir that is slightly more potent. For an untrained alche...

Re: Loans

What you're talking about though, Gub, is personal loans. That is different than bank loans. Personal loans (and just flat-out gifting) are common in Genesis. I'd rather people interact and roleplay to get loans from other players, rather than have the Gnomes of Genesis do it, both because it makes ...
