  1. He posted on the event a little bit ago. All is well, thanks.
  2. Hey, @Todd@Chaosium, we're less than 24 hours out from go time, and there's no platform/connection info up yet for Wyrmghost Ruins, at least not that I can see. https://warhorn.net/events/chaosium-online-gaming-at-pax-online/schedule/sessions/c368f30f-b407-49a1-b4e3-ae263ace2c35 Do you have any info, or a way to contact Manuel Molinier (GM) besides commenting on the event? Thanks.
  3. There's also an abundance of "You're doing Arkat WRONG!"
  4. The truly righteous will behave righteously after Illumination much as they did before, though perhaps with a broader perspective. If they were only behaving righteously before because of social expectations, laws, or fear of punishment - their morality was only skin-deep all along. The righteous Illuminate may see that the distinction between suffering and bliss is an illusion, yet still chose to strive for a world where none suffer needlessly, to choose compassion over cruelty, out of kindness to the other who is also the self. If one must be a world at all, it is better to be a kind one unt
  5. Don't sell yourself short, they're solidly deuterocannonical in my book.
  6. You had me at Elmal.
  7. What level of commitment is required before one gets to learn the secret of "appearing in vs originating in" re all the real world proper nouns in four decades worth of CoC books? Does someone seriously need to write a monograph adventure about a high-school road trip in the 90's to get confirmation as to whether or not "Ford Escort" is prohibited content because it's a trademark and proper name on the equipment list in CoC 5th?
  8. Gah, I lost a big post here. Yes, I have a sketch of using fluctuating personal resource style abilities and flaws to create CofD-esque tensions, using Classical Greek drama terms for maximum pretension. Watch this space.
  9. Here is an approach I took, sorting spells into grimoires roughly grouped by theme and power level. I actually have a lot of draft/notes for implementing a whole lot of D&D'isms like classes as keywords, distinct arcane vs divine magic styles, spells/day derived from ability ratings, advancement/resistance-progression framed in Low/Mid/High/Epic-Level terms, etc. I even went all-in on making alignment something that interacts interestingly with play, Alignment ratings work similar to how community resource ratings do, and your behavior and experiences cause them to fluctuate over tim
  10. With an open license, there should be no need to pitch anything for approval, nor need for any of this sort of discussion. It should by clear from the license text itself what is or is not permitted.
  11. I'd also consider waiting to see if it happens again. Hot streaks happen, but not every week.
  12. Thanks for the bump. I'm working remotely while also supervising a pair of remote-learners, but I'm starting to have some brainwave bandwidth for QW again.
  13. Asraelia vs Ty Kora Tek
  14. It's only unproductive and frustrating because they refuse to directly answer two rather basic questions about what they meant by a couple of terms in 1(e). They wrote it, they should know the answers. This frustrating merry-go-round is ongoing entirely because they are being silent on those two points. Whithout clarity on the appearing-in/originating-in point in particular, setting anything on Earth is a risk, given the decades of CoC materials, many out-of-print, set in various locations around the world. I can see where defining "story-element" might take some careful thought, but they
