    Completed the Character Creation doc, with all races, how to fill out your Character Sheet, and leveling up!

    Sounds awesome, D&D and soda are about as wild as my nights get, and now throwing the Elder Scrolls into the mix makes it even better.

    Done weapons (the lower tier versions anyway). Might come back and change some of the numbers around later though

    Thanks! I was really trying to keep the combat system nice and simple but still in the spirit of TES and other tabletop RPGs

    I want to play this, but I've never played D&D. Will I be able to pick this up relatively easily?

    I'm in the same boat.

    I'm trying to make it similar to the last few games in the franchise (Morrowind-Skyrim, mostly Skyrim) so you should pick it up pretty easily.

    Loved the Magic List so far. One question: Why did you choose to remove the Stamina/Magicka drain from the Ice/Shock spells?

    You've probably noticed that you have to use the Recover standard action to regain Stamina and Magicka, I figured that adding the drain to those spells would make them utterly crippling to both players and enemies.

    Just finished writing a little playtest adventure, I'll put it into one of the docs once I play through it with a few different groups of people

    I see now why BWC is in need of an over-haul. Competition is gonna be tough with this one being around.... If it ever comes around.

    It's almost "Come around" - I've done 2 tests with my RL friends and I'm actually about to do another one with some Blog folks on Skype!

    Is skype required to play the game?

    It's obviously designed to be played face-to-face but you can do it over text/voice chat if that isn't available

    Hi Ponty, will you upload a gamelog with your playtests? How was the game flow? Does the players enjoyed the new mechanics (Magicka/Stamina)? Which are currently the issues the system have which should be changed in the future? We will have a major event here in Brazil this weekend, I will probably try to RP this beauty and shall provide you some minor feedback as well

    "It's obviously designed to be played face-to-face but you can do it over text/voice chat if that isn't available"

    I'm pretty sure there's other methods of text chat...

    I've been fixing issues as they come up, it's mostly been with balancing Destruction and weapon damage. I'll be doing another test at some time or another, mages seem to be Recovering a lot, but most of them are just spamming Flame Arrow

    From here on in it'll probably just be minor tweaks here and there, and of course adding new content (especially gear - I still need to do tier 3-6 stuff)

    Maybe when/if I do mounted combat. Might just group em up with Spears though
