Topic: worst DM/GM blunders
Subject: last session


In the last session I played with my tabletop group, the party was attacked by 6 hellspawn creatures. However during the combat, I accidentally only put 4 down on my combat sheet. So after the 8th round, one of them says well there are 3 left.

Me: No, only 1.

Player: Ummm no there would be three.

Me. No there were four, and now there is the one.

Other player: You said there was six.

Me (checking notes): oh... Hurm. Okay. You thought there were 6 but there were only four. That happens with hellspawns. They're tricky that way.

Topic: Castle Rautenberg Q n A
Subject: T marks the spot


The hallway is K21 but the map has it beside instead of inside. You are on the far side of T except Brutal who is in the T.

Somewhere between editions, this part of the map was changed in relation to the stairswell you are in so there is some confusion. According to some version, it doesn't exist.

Galirian and I actually go back to grade 7, which is a long long time agao in a galaxy far far way....

Glad you finally made the leap to the Inn. Lots of great people here and the online games are fun. Mine are Voyages of Rocinante, Destiny's Flight and Escape from Castle Rautenberg. I will be starting a old school low level D&D game in the new year, and you would be welcome.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: clamp


RPN is right in that you need a special docking clamp and in the episode in question, the ship was a salvage operator so they had to have a docking ring.

With bigger ships they would have docking bays like the Alliance cruisers or Niska's Spaceport.

Some small "modified" ships have a special clamp to board undetected like in The final episode of the series and in the graphic novel "those left behind".

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: landing


Oh yes you would have to land to transfer cargo unless you wanted to put on suits and toss it at each other.

The heavy traffic lanes aren't like highways, they are areas of space that depending on planet rotation suddenly become congested as they are in the arc of the fastest route. You could go the entire route without seeing another ship, or you may pass a dozen in transit. Running at a high speed in a corridor is dangerous because the potential for collision is greater, and they won't have the speed to get out of the way.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: tess


My mistake with Tess, for some reason I skipped the skill and used to abilities.

Destiny is a d10 agil, with a d2 gunship, Tess d10 agil, d12 gunship, an additional d8 for Born behind a wheel and a d6 for talented (Nice stacking there, btw). So rolling you are a base 6-48. You will need a 27 to make the skill check.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: skill check


You want to go top speed in a heavy shipping lane of space? That will be in the high spectrum of Incredible if not Ridiculous maneuvers. Let me explain the game mechanics of that to clarify.

Destiny is a d10 agil, with a d2 gunship, Tess d10 agil, d8 alert, an additional d8 for Born behind a wheel and a d6 for talented (Nice stacking there, btw). So rolling you are a base 6-44. You will need a 27 to make the skill check.

If you add a plot point you get an additional d6. add two and you get a d8, etc etc.

Hope that helps a bit.

I will be posting to all my games over the course of this week and then will not be posting again until the first week of January. Feel free to post yourselves so the game can move forward at that time but with holidays I figure a short break was in order.

Topic: Castle Rautenberg Q n A
Subject: ledge


The pit trap is about 8x8 so there is a 2 foot rim around the edges. Probably built that way so the enemy would fall in but the troops within would know to stick to the edge.

Leaping 8 feet? That would be a formidable if not incredible skill check.

Glad to see people are enjoying Floyd. Now we will stay true to the every wed schedule for the next two weeks (14th and 21st) but will take the holidays off and return January 4th. Give me time to write more scripts and Jing to draw more as well.

Subject: ahh


True we broke the 180 degree rule if there was a camera but according to film making class (back in high school) you can break the 180 degree rule if you have a central object to base prespective. In this case the table. In Blade Runner they used a giant billboard.


But thanks for the attention to detail.

Supposedly you could freeze the holodeck but it was always malfunctioning in episodes and once again you would be trapped in the holodeck with safety protocol disabled until the program ran its course.

Topic: Escape From Castle Rautenberg
Subject: same floor, give me some more


In the Stairwell

“We can’t be delayed,” the captain said “Mrs Hoffstetter, do we need to go further down?”

She thought for a moment and then replied, "No. If we go further we will have to work our way around to the catacombs which will waste time and possible ... other things in the dark. Here we can move to the main stairwell down."

"Doesn't matter either way." Brutal says as he signals a stop. the Sarge close behind him sees what Brutal is looking at and shakes his head. The lower part of the stairwell ends in black water so high that the next door down can't be seen. " Sorry Captain. I didn't think to pack swimming trunks." Brutal Says as he returns up the stairs to take the lead going through the door. He listens briefly and then opens the door to a ten foot wide corridor going north for 20 feet and ending in another door. The hall is dark and musty smelling, with no electric lights strung here at all.

Brutal steps forward with machine gun at ready. He takes two steps and suddenly the floor opens up beneath him with a loud crash as the false floor swings open beneath his feet. "What the Fff......." he cries as he falls into the pit trap.

Before anyone can scramble over to see if brutal is okay, there is the sound of someone calling out in german. Romo hears what he says

"What the! Quick! Check that out now! You two cover him!"

Near the dungeons

Max look around the room and realizes he has three options. There is the door he came through that leads to the prison, and other door to the south and a set of double door to the east. He checks the double doors and finds they are unlocked but as he touched the handle he hears the sound of bootsteps heading toward him from the other side, a number of them actually, probably alerted to the sound of the gunfire. Then he hears a loud bang from somewhere nearby, like a door swinging hard into a stone wall. it clearly surprised the germans as he hears one of them call out.

"What the! Quick! Check that out now! You two cover him!"
