  1. If Dodge is a skill that is part of an Occupation or chosen as part of a flexible choice in an Occupation you can use Occupation skill points toward improving it.
  2. Gorgeous. Well done Otter!
  3. If you're having a good time gaming, I'm happy. 😉
  4. No harm no foul Michael! I understand and am patient.
  5. I am very picky about the Actual Plays that I actually think are worth a watch. I prefer ones with trained actors. They are conscious of performance and that they have an audience. Most Actual Plays are boring to watch.
  6. Yes, ducks are awesome. Runequest is not pseudo-medieval. It is Bronze Age. What makes it really interesting is that the base "rules" of culture are completely flipped on their head. You can offend NPCs in RQ in ways that would impress them in medieval fantasy and impress RQ NPCs with things that would offend a pseudo-medieval NPC. RQ is not about killing stuff and taking treasure. It is about brokering alliances, trading, feeding communities, prestige, and ransoming foes instead of killing them. If you are interested in Pendragon for what makes it unique, you might like RQ for
  7. What put me on Runequest is that it's a sophisticated world with an amazing religious pantheon, Creation Story, and interesting cultural framework.
  8. Sounds like James made a mistake. It was listed as "Unlisted," but I'm not sure he expected it to be visible to subscribers? Or he changed it to unlisted after many of us saw it? Just in case Chaosium has any doubt that we're watching... 😜
  9. I don't know who at Chaosium is responsible for all of these unbelievable high-profile Actual Plays we've been getting over the last two years. But they deserve some kind of marketing medal. Or a fat raise.
  10. It's a shame more people don't know Greg Stafford...
  11. Thanks for the additional examples. I was reading this and thinking "this person thinks how I think about role-playing." If Gygax didn't want it altered, he shouldn't have published it. Especially for a game intended to be creative. I've never understood the Gygax worship. Yes, he was involved in the creation of something great. A lot of nerds, young and old, treat him like he's some deity. And there are plenty of examples from his life that should make one question idolizing him. You ask a lot of nerds WHY they love him so much, and when you get past the standard "he wrote DND" (which
  12. Excellent point Joe. The classic example of this is in the medical field. Increasing our detection methods for disease finds more instances of disease, but it isn't evidence that disease is spreading in the population more. Likewise, humans not knowing how to recognize a mental health challenge in the past doesn't mean that when we recognize more of it now that it just didn't exist in the past. PTSD is an example. It was called "shell shock" in WW1. And people maybe didn't explicitly identify it as a consequence of war at all in the distant past. But that doesn't mean a human empathetic respon
