Board Business / Easy Table Coding
« on: August 02, 2018, 05:31:13 PM »
I just discovered something and want to share it with all of you.

If you're like me, coding tables from scratch is a pain (especially ones with lots of columns).

However I have found a website that accepts table data from Excel (or any other spreadsheet program) and converts it into a basic bbcode table that you can then adjust (adding colors or lines or whatnot).  It can also output code for html tables as well as for putting into a wiki.

Homebrew and House Rules (D&D) / Homebrew Reviewing and General Help
« on: April 02, 2018, 12:10:59 AM »
If you're looking for a homebrew reviewer, look no further for I am the Homebrew Connoisseur.  I am here to make all of your homebrew review dreams come true! *Will not actually make dreams come true.

As you might (or might not) already know, I have been titled the Homebrew Connoisseur (as well as the board's official Discord channel).  I've been reviewing homebrew for....a long time.  I like to think that I've gotten pretty good at it (and other people seem to agree since I've got this nifty title now). 

If you want me to look at something, let me know.  I also have a tendency to remember things that I read and have become something of a homebrew encyclopedia.  I don't know everything that is in the homebrew compendium, but I probably know some things that aren't in there.  If there's something specific that you're looking for let me know, maybe I can help you find some homebrew that can help you out.

Feel free to post here, or you can send me a PM.  If it is something small I'll try to get to it quickly.  Larger projects will go into my to-do list which is in my "Notes to Self" thread mentioned in my signature and I'll try to get to them as soon as convenient.  General questions/posts will get responded to as soon as I have an actual answer for you.

Like other helpful threads that I post, I'm starting this but it isn't just for me.  If someone posts something and you have an answer, tell it.  If someone asks for reviews and you want to review it, do so.  I can't do everything (despite what some people might thing  :p).

In addition, the different homebrew compendium threads lost their stickies as part of the reorganization of this sub-board.  They might not be updated anymore, but I still think that they might be helpful to others so I have linked to them below.

Board Business / Initial Posting Requirements
« on: January 17, 2018, 12:27:28 AM »
The restrictions on new people posting have been removed, people no longer have to introduce themselves to gain access to post on the rest of the board.

Was this intentional?

Board Business / PbP Game Master group
« on: December 27, 2017, 12:20:18 AM »
So, this exists as a user membership group and I just discovered it.

Is it used for anything?  I ask as someone who is running a PbP game.

Board Business / Discord Issues
« on: November 17, 2017, 06:02:00 PM »
I can't post to the Discord, any time I try I get a bot response saying that "sending messages to this channel has been temporarily disabled. Try again in a bit."

Anyone else having issues or is it just my phone?

[D&D 5E] Coastal Troubles / Coastal Troubles (IC Thread)
« on: November 14, 2017, 02:03:35 PM »
Together or individually, you all are answering a call for help.  The high priest of Kelemvor, Doomguide Yovir Glandon, of the city of Phlan has requested able bodied adventurers to look into attacks on small coastal communities in the area.

Magiries, the request for aid came to you directly.  Given your history with Enar you invited her along, two holy warriors being better than one after all.  The rest of you were called in more general ways, but the feeling you got was that this isn't a trumpet call for any and all to answer.  This call is more targeted, it seems that Doomguide Glandon doesn't want to incite panic.

You've made your way to Phlan on the passenger ship Paulina, and any who have mingled with the crew have heard rumors that the attacks have been from a pirate ship.  There are even quieter rumors among the passengers that it is some sort of "ghost ship", but the crew refuses to discuss the subject out of superstition.  If there is some sort of ghost pirate ship out there, they don't want to tempt fate by discussing it.

Paulina has just tied up at the dock and disembarkation has begun.  You know that Doomguide Glandon can be found at Valhingen Graveyard and that he wants to discuss with you in person just what his concerns are.

Dice rolls go here.

[D&D 5E] Coastal Troubles / Character Sheets
« on: November 14, 2017, 10:25:30 AM »
If anyone is interested, I do have a 5E character sheet post template that can be found in my signature (or in the Character Sheet Templates thread).  Using it makes me happy but does not earn you brownie points.

SorO's sheet makes me happy too.

Character Creation Rules

Stats are standard point buy (27 points), which can buy you the array if you want the array.

All core options are allowed (although if you're going after a combo or something please tell me, my experience with 5e is minimal and I'm going to get angry if I find out that someone took advantage of me).  Anything outside of core is allowed on a case by case basis.

Everyone is level 1.  High op is not required, we're playing a premade adventure.

Allowed non-core material:
 - Hexblade
 - All racial feats from Xanathar's

If there's anything you'd like a ruling on just let me know.

Play By Post / What should I run?
« on: November 03, 2017, 03:42:23 PM »
I'm going to run a game.  If you'd be interested in having me as a DM (warning, I'm a little rusty on the DM side of things), please look through this thread and vote on what you'd like me to run.

Current voting:

5th: Archon, oslecamo, Versatility_Nut, Strat
PF: Raineh, Archon, linklord, SorO

Original Post:

I was looking through all of my rpg books last night and it made me tempted to run something (I have a lot of things).  After all, it's been years, and the last time I was a DM I co-DM'd with Strat so it wasn't actually my game.

If I was to run a game, would you want to play?

If you would want to play, would you want 3.5/Pathfinder or something less common? 

I've got some other things I'd be tempted to run from Savage Worlds games to other more obscure stuff.  Book availability isn't an issue, I'm happy to help people out.  I also have Big Motherfuckin' Crab Truckers which is as wonderful as it sounds and the rules system is literally a page if silly one-shots are more your style.


D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder / Spheres of Might
« on: October 14, 2017, 01:36:55 PM »
Anyone else have this book yet?  I'm honestly impressed, I like it more than Spheres of Power and it feels like a system that actually gives martials fun toys without giving them game-breaking abilities.

Off Topic Fun / Santa Fe, NM
« on: July 28, 2017, 06:01:40 PM »
I don't think we've ever had a successful meetup planned on here, I know I've tried three times.

And now I'm trying again.

Anyone in the Santa Fe area?

Play By Post / Character Sheet Templates
« on: July 05, 2017, 03:00:47 PM »
If you're like me, myth-weavers and similar websites just don't cut it whether that's due to the sheets not meeting your needs, potential for data loss, or other reasons.  This thread is meant to be an index for character sheet templates to store your sheet directly on this board so you don't have to go anywhere else to see what you can do.   

Do you have a character sheet template that you would like to share?  Post it and I'll add it to the index.  Is there a character sheet template you wish someone would make for you?  I take requests.  I'm also open to suggestions to improve any of my existing character sheet templates.

Note: For all of my sheets you can quote the entire post and paste it into a new post, just remove the header and the quote blocks.  Most of my sheets (like the 3.5 and Pathfinder Character Sheets) make use of the preformatted text tag in sections so you'll want to preview those and make sure that the spacing still matches up before posting.

Board Business / Well that was interesting
« on: June 30, 2017, 02:05:38 PM »
Some warning would have been nice, now I get to transition everything again since I cleaned stuff up to transition it in the first place.

Clicking the We Are Back link on the homepage logs me out.

Are all of the organization changes made going to be mirrored here? 

Board Business / Discussion about board migration
« on: February 21, 2017, 05:49:49 PM »
I'm creating this thread as a planning thread to get things back on track.  If Meg is going to allow someone else to take over this board we need a plan.  Trust me on this.

Strat and Robby have both expressed interest/willingness to host the site.

I am NOT willing to host, however I am 100% willing to be tech support for the site.  I'm in IT and have done website support and coding if anyone wants a basic explanation of my credentials.  If nobody needs me to support this site that's fine too.

IN MY OPINION the plan needs to have at least the following:

1. A decision on who will host the site out of the people invested in this conversation, otherwise multiple people might end up harassing Meg about being the person to take over the site..  She's obviously had enough of that already.
2. A migration plan for the board including domain name registration migration if possible/Meg is willing.
3. An implementation schedule and team (if more people than just the person hosting the board are doing the migration).
4. A decision on reorganization, if any (we've already had a suggestion of fleshing out the 5E section).
5. A possible decision by whoever is making decisions on if any changes should be made to what users are mods.  This might not be needed if traffic stays relatively low, but I think that we've only got one regularly active mod left.

This isn't intended as some sort of coup of the website or me taking the reins, I just like leading projects.  Any and all input by anyone is good, we're all members of the same community here.

Edit: Also feel free to link this thread to wherever you think people might see it that you think would provide good input.  Aside from the two threads actively discussing this I couldn't think of anywhere else good to throw in a link.

Board Business / Did we go down again?
« on: January 23, 2017, 04:21:29 PM »
It looks like we went down again today, I couldn't access the site from multiple networks.

Are we having issues again?

D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder / Spheres of Might (PF)
« on: January 17, 2017, 08:57:18 PM »
Is anybody besides me paying attention to this?  It's a companion book to Spheres of Power (but a separate system), third party if you're not familiar with it.

There's a preview here.  I'm not all the way through it yet, but there's a Blacksmith class with a major theme of sundering your enemies equipment and then repairing it
after you've killed them.

I'm very interested.

Off Topic Fun / Making your own custom RPG accessories
« on: October 12, 2016, 09:33:22 PM »
This thread is meant to be a guide for people who want to create their own RPG or RPG accessories.  My ideas for making things (or, more accurately having things made) started when I decided that I wanted a professional looking d8 with moon phases and expanded from there as I dug into just what I could do.

After asking if anyone else would be interested in learning from my experiences (which, granted, got a very lukewarm reception), I decided that I'd write it all down anyway.  If nothing else I can use it as a reference in case I forget.

So far I'm working on getting books printed professionally (or at least professional looking), custom dice creation, and miniature trays.  I might branch out later, and if anyone else has had things custom created (and I mean more than just going to a 3D printer and having something printed), feel free to share your experiences (both bad and good).

My guides:
Printing Books That You'd Be Proud to Display
Producing Perfect Polyhedrals

Off Topic Fun / Anyone want a guide to making custom rpg accessories?
« on: September 30, 2016, 06:33:36 PM »
So I'm in the middle of getting some pdfs printed professionally (not kinkos or whatnot), and I've got a project to make custom miniature trays that's currently on hold until I finish enough of my other projects that I feel up to it.

I've also been looking into and am working on some custom dice creation.

Is anyone else interested in this stuff?  Would anyone like me to make a thread about it with reviews and processes and whatnot?  (Yes, I know that there are a thousand "make your own miniature trays" guides on the internet but I'm actually going off on my own somewhat on that one).
