Re: Fumbles

I don't know what edition we got it from, but we play it like this:

For skills 25% and below 96-00 is a fumble.

For skills 50% and below 97-00 is a fumble.

For skills 75% and below 98-00 is a fumble.

For skills above 75% 99-00 is a fumble.

00 is always catastrophically bad.

Re: I Need a new podcatcher

I dropped iTunes but not Apple. I am using the native Podcast iOS app on my iPad, and have bypassed the computer altogether. Works for me.

Re: Television

As for the best show on TV right now: Archer. No other show comes even anywhere close to Archer. Couldn't agree more. Each season I worry that the quality level will drop off, but it is still fantastic. I am also a sucker for the BBC Stuff from Morse to Doctor Who (new and classic). Justified was r...

The more content the better. If you are trimming the Crier, then give us the trimmings separately.

Re: Cthulhu Dark game tomorrow?

Oh man, if I wasn't playing Call of Cthulhu tomorrow I totally would. I have been interested in Cthulhu Dark since the Borrowing Walmsley episode. If you don't get enough players for tomorrow, I would be interested on a different day.

Re: Favorite place to buy dice online?

I have a set of Q-workshop Elven dice that are just gorgeous, a bit hard to read in low light though. I wish I supported small businesses more, but have bought most of my dice through Amazon. They have chessex, q-workshop and game science dice, and since I have prime the shipping is often free. I ha...

Analogous Combat Skills?

So I was running a game where two of the players had hunting backgrounds, and thus had sunk a lot of points into the rifle skill. As the game worked out, they ended up acquiring a shotgun which meant that the player was rolling against the base skill, and missed quite a bit. From a role playing pers...

Re: In my first game they decided to hit a GOO with a car.

Thomas, that sounds excruciating. Good on you for keeping your promise though.
