Well shit... I knew I was missing something. :o I used to use another website and have our own room to roll. Let me open one somewhere and return back. First round's free on the honor system, everybody! :D

site: rolz.org
room: Disco Talislanta

And thanks for asking about that Spinachcat, that was my next question. That said, I do prefer people rolling their own dice as it builds trust, even if it sacrifices time. It worked before and I would like it to work again.

But if everyone would like to vote now it would help clear the air! :) I think rolling your own dice in the official dice room withhin 3 days with autopilots afterwards is enough, but I want to hear the table's thoughts.

My vote is to let the GM handle dice rolls for now but I'm also down for using an online dice roller.

I personally like the GM rolling because then it's a surprise.

Greetings!

I am fine with Opa rolling dice. I can roll dice either way.

Hey all, I have to apologize but I must back out of the game.  I'd like to stick it out but there are too many issues I'm dealing with right now to concentrate on playing.  Tonight my wife has an MRI but the doctors haven't stated why exactly they ordered it.  Additionally, I have a daughter graduating from college and who will be moving back in with me for a while.  There are other obligations I'm dealing with but I don't want to go into too much detail.

Anyway, thanks for the invite to join in.  Do as you will with Tadius and have fun on the Disco floor.

I think the GM only roll votes won.

Understandable "Tadius" Griphammer! :) Thanks for the update. And remember the door is always open to return.

I'm currently surrounded by fire, heatwave, and thunderstorms here in real life, so who knows how long I have! :D But fuck it, Disco Inferno my lovelies! "The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire! We don't need no water, let the muthafucka burn! Burn, muthafucka, burn!" :p Dance like it's the end of the world!

As for rolls, thanks for the votes everyone! I will still let those who want to roll, roll (as I kinda enjoy the engagement & surprise myself too). But for Doc Sammy, Spinachcat, and SHARK, I will roll for you guys to keep things moving (unless it is so dramatic I feel it is an honor to test your own Destiny/Fate;)). Snowman, please feel free to keep rolling on the rolz.org room and let's get back to the show! :)

Gve me a moment as I have to get my affairs, and firebox, in order just in case I need to run for my life. ;) Brb!

Take care of yourself Opa! As my mom is still on the Peninsula, we've been monitoring the NorCal firestorms that have never happened before, could never have been predicted, and surely could not have been considered a possible issue by our fine rulers in Sacramento. If you haven't already, consider getting an ionizer or air purifier. Or a druid with high level weather magic.

I still live! :)

As for the area, yeah, fire ecology and cultural penchant for building out into hilly hinterland. Awkward exchange, property value gives, weather takes. :D And yes we still have Sharper Image ionizers! (But what I really want is also an air conditioner... :()

Oh, and thanks for everyone's patience! Talislanta is surprisingly easy now that I am running it with a fine-toothed comb, but the tabulation is a bit front-loaded.

Greetings!

Shields are kind of vague, aren't they?:D

It seems like they operate as damage sponges.

Yes they are, SHARK. :confused: (BTW, your inbox is full, no more messages until more space.)

Anyone else have ideas on the Shields thing? I can see it as an [item life meter] but that makes them stupid powerful until I designate a Protection value. I could just leave it at 1, just like Leather/Fur. But those Max HP values don't happen in a single blow's damage until you get into seige weaponry territory. :o

It doesn't come up -- yet. But it will. And it otherwise hinders non-coms trying to grab a quick improv cover and flee towards safety.

Maybe I should throw this question up on the Talislanta topic too. ;)

Just do a flat +1 to armor.

Given my character is a druid is it possible for me to have a healing spell?
