  1. Parrying a missile weapon with a medium or large shield. Not arrows, but spears and rocks and what not. Makes sense if the PC can see the attack coming.
  2. I truly appreciate your help. I ended up making a 'sword and shield' combat flow-chart with a bit of 7e/Invictus mishmash. We'll see if it survives contact with my players!
  3. Brethren, I am using 7e, which I like very much. I am struggling a bit with figuring out how to run a certain kind of combat. I could use your help. Two warriors face each other. Both have a shield and chain mail. Both have a long sword. How does this run with dodge, parry, and shield knock backs? Where can I find the rules to figure this out? If someone was really, really, really nice and wanted to narrate a few rounds of this combat for me, using the things I've mentioned above, I would appreciate it.
  4. Helllooooo! I am running a BRP game on Roll20. I used the BRP option when setting my game up, which game me access to Magic World character sheets (which is great). Any other resources or suggestions I can add to my game? I wish oh wish that Yellow Book or the Magic World source book were available on Roll20, but they ain't.
  5. That's a totally fair point. I definitely didn't do my monster HW as a DM, and probably underutilized them.
  6. I played 3.0 twenty years ago. It was fine. Never touched 4th.
  7. I think it is, literally, that. By expressing an opinion--orcs are, in fact, not some racist trope--you are suddenly the enemy. Anyhow, I appreciate your comments. Like I said, I turned it all off. It was just too irritating. I am not a people person.
  8. I hear you 100%. I think what bugs me is bringing real world social pathologies into an escapist fantasy game. To me, complaining that fantasy monsters in a fantasy game played with fantasy characters are racist--in the same way that real world racism is a horrid, cancerous evil-- is a waste of time and energy. With regard to the wheelchair: Professor X is great! Do you think there needs to be specific rules in D&D 5e dealing with characters who are disabled? Like, 'turn to appendix 8 in the DMs Guide to see how to run a handicapped character?" I don't. If that's a part of someone's
  9. Brethren, I began playing Dungeons&Dragons many, many decades ago--forty years! I have great affection for the game and its history. We played all throughout the 80s and early 90s, then again in the early 'oughts before life (wives, children, jobs) got in the way. Adulthood is not all that fun. Last year, my group of friends and I decided to carve out a weekend day per month to play. We all instantly gravitated to 5e which was new and flashy and (shockingly) popular. We played a campaign based loosely on Hoard of the Dragon Queen, and the PCs ended up at about level 9. I hated it.Whi
  10. I am going to add a bit of time travel to the campaign, so I'm going to drop them in the 50s for a bit of fun.
  11. So...is this a thing or not? BRP science fiction game? Any updates?
