Re: Races and Classes Restrictions Charts

I have not used class restrictions on races (any races) for a very long time now. Never encountered any real balance issues. When there seems to be something odd... such as a Dwarf Magic-User, I address it in the role-play arena; such a character might be seen as odd or even as an outright heretic b...

Re: Raising Stats

Copying my FB response If you use such a rule you should either change the modifier progression or use a cost-base purchase as higher bonuses will appear more quickly I think RKSmoot uses the d20 ability bonuses with level progression (a quicker one for humans) I have posted a couple (or maybe just...

Re: Quick Question

While not doing much active content these days, the BFRPG Forums are bookmarked tabs that fire up every time I open the web browser, and I check periodically/constantly throughout the day. I may not comment much, but I review just about everything posted. I have the luxury of being able to keep this...

Re: Adding Character Levels to Monsters

Generally I'd add hit dice not for "levels" but just "to taste." For example, rather than adding 4 hit dice to a basic goblin for four levels of cleric, I'd take the stats for a goblin "lieutenant" and add the spells and class abilities. I am on board with this in general. When creating adversaries...

Re: Magic-Users and Darts/Slings

Personally, I have never felt a MU wielding a sword was some kind of game breaking thing. Because if they're using it they'll probably die. But that's just me. I also allowed no level limits on demihumans, multiclassing as the heart desired, and so on and so forth :) Quite similar to my outlook on ...

Re: Magic-Users and Darts/Slings

There is a MU options supplement that can assist in keeping mu players engaged.
I like using an Arcane Bolt ability. Helps MU do magic-ey stuff throughout a combat.
