    Which may be an interesting discussion on its own, but has nothing to do with gameplay. Because most people aren't playing a sim, they're playing an adventuring game and no one wants to be lectured about how shame on their pc for not having kids because the pretend clan can't make it now. Possessing a vagina should not be something used to hamper gameplay for female characters. I don't care about sustainability. I care about playing the game.

    You are discounting a LOT of sexual activity with this. There's plenty of fun sexy times that don't involve pregnancy as a potential side effect. No need to abstain from fun times. Just keep the p out of the v.
  3. Our Ernaldan had a kid off camera before the game began. Handed off to be raised and was free when the game started. Honestly, I wouldn't leave kids to a random roll for male or female characters or those in-between or outside of those designations. Tell players it is an option. If they decide they want that option, work it out. For many reasons it can be a touchy topic, or just not one someone wants to RP. Which is why I avoid Earth cults.
  4. I am not saying Yohai would gladly bring a rune priest of Tokaz Veraz back with her when she returns to the Anmangarn...but I am not saying she WOULDN'T WANT THIS AWESOME CREATURE OF CHAOS. You know, until you had us run into some Storm Bulls later.
  5. In RQG (page 48) it says the following for sky/fire: Personality: To have a strong affinity with Fire/Sky means to be pure, chaste, idealistic, and perceptive. Which is whatever a player makes of it. My LM lay member in Balazar is annoyingly determined to understand/know the truth of things. She is interested in furthering knowledge for herself, and sharing it...if she can come off looking smarter than the person she is sharing with. Otherwise, let them learn on their own. She notices a lot of stuff and files it away for later. Her interests are squarely in the knowledge and she has little thought for bodily pleasures. Although she will complain endlessly about discomfort.
  6. Have you considered the fine location of Balazar? Sure, the beer is shit, but there's not the looming war overhead. Not to mention, dogs instead of cats. So, automatic points! Our DragonPass game starts further back in history and we have changed a few minor things. As the one running the game gets to determine such. We saved Apple Lane's thane, until the lunar witch came back for revenge. None of us wanted to hide in the pawnshop and engaged in the street. Took the gm by surprise. We were the first group of his to take that approach. We gave advance notice of Crimson Bat priests to Whitewall so they will be better prepared when it shows up down the line. You can follow the main timeline as much or little as you want and shouldn't ever feel like there's no room for change or twists. Source material is that, even layers deep, amazing source material can be converted to your needs. It may seem daunting, but play around with it before letting anyone else see if that's what you need to do.
  7. Jumping in as a pure player at this point. The point of advancement is because for players it is fun. I like hitting my banked HP level and getting to give my character new things she is good at. As a player I know things scale. It's not something I am unaware of. I expect the difficulty to be about the same throughout the game. It does not ruin the fun for most players. In that regard, it is just up to the gm to be running a fun game that makes people want to participate and try out new things. If I can use my 1w2 Death rune for everything, well, where's the fun? Maybe I should have used my campfire cook 15 instead. If I have a reason. It is, basically, up to the gm to make sure one thing doesn't work for everything. Sometimes you have to tell a player, "You know, I don't see that being an option. What else can your character do to overcome this obstacle?"
  8. Poor wording choice. It has not become a sensitive issue. It always has been. It has just finally been more publicly acknowledged that it is such and people should be more considerate of those who might have been through it without them having to broadcast such to earn sympathy and consideration.
  9. Game myth aside, telling a woman without a womb, or one barren, or one unable to function in any perceived "normal" way something like that is bound to cause some hurt. Same if you tell a man who struggles with infertility issues on his own or spouse's behalf. It's such a minefield. YGMV, but consideration at the table should always be paramount. And, someone please tell my Humakti to use her womb for anything. No, really, she'd like correcting them.
  10. Yea, but we need to pick ONE and finish it and move on. My head is spinning with all the four projects at once. That's no way to work.
  11. Today's session reinforces my uz's annoyance with Orlanthi and she is not even in this game! But the kids were swayed by the rebel's cause in Alone in 1615 and our Orlanthi rushed to protect a Vingan captive. So, now we are, temporarily at the least, on the run with rebels and not with the caravan. At least our group contest had good rolls so we made it out without any injuries. Good, since our Found Child is still down a bit from last session. And, technically, it was all my Lhankor Mhy's fault, but she will never admit that and punch anyone who tries to claim it is so. Potential combat scene that lasts just long enough for everyone to roll is SO GOOD.
  12. They were hollri, yep. Usually they are found in, and don't leave, Valind's glacier. No idea how they got there to bother us! Giant ice men looking elementals.
  13. The game before last, the kids got cocky. 13 and 14 yo sons helped take out a couple of ice demons at the top of Wyrms High Pass. We even saved the sheltered prince of Dykene who snuck into the caravan. So, they went into the fight with a giant mantis in the Vale of Flowers this weekend feeling a bit smug. Then our almost initiate of Found Child bet a few too many action points when he tried to climb its back and stab it and wound up near pinned to the ground. Without his dog Growler's help he would have been pinned. Our Orlanth Adventurous lay member had a plan and his going first meant he backed up and brought the thing into the center of the group. Some of us were not pleased. Thankfully, my Lkankor Mhy/Issaries lay member did well and since I had way more action points than I was used to, I bet big and took out an eye one round and the next I pinned enough arrows into the crook of its arm to take away some motion. And we survived, and they had fun, but they might be more cautious with those action point bids the first round next time. Especially since we were confronted by a very mad Gorakiki priestess once it was dead. At least we did not have to fight her! The kids are loving the rules so much they want to convert their 5e characters over and play them with this system.
  14. This is something very close to my Xiola Umbar's heart. And she's had much the same thought. In fact, after being sent out among humans and observing the ones she travels with closely, she now wonders what would happen if enlo were treated like other uz. DM mentioned heretical thoughts and now I want to pursue it even more. LOL But she is choosing to interpret words given her by a mistress race in her own way, as we all do, and has IDEAS now. Some of which she is going to be sharing to her mentor when she arrives back at the temple to become a rune lord. 'Ware the troll told to find new steps right before sending her out to hang out with Orlanthi and especially Ernaldans.
  15. I know your passwords, hon. If I want to know what you're doing I don't need to see it here. Also, thanks so much for saddling us with a prince. Ugh.
