Did I Just Solve Spell Points?

The Splintered Realm - Fri, 11/18/2022 - 13:51
I’m thinking of a freeform sort of spell point/tally system… it works this way. As a caster, you have a maximum spell tier and a tally die. That’s it. That’s how you track your available spells that day…
 

Level  

1

2

3

4

5

6

7

8

9

10

Spell Tier

1

1

2

2

3

3

4

4

5

5

Tally Die

1d4

1d6

1d6

1d8

1d8

1d10

1d10

1d12

1d12

1d12

 
You have a daily number of tallies equal to your caster level. You roll your tally die (based on your level), after each spell you cast. If you roll that spell’s tier or lower, you receive a tally. Once your total tallies equal your level, you are done for the day.
 
As a Magician 1, each spell I cast has a 25% chance of being my last one for the day. I could be one and done, but I could also get on a hot streak and cast ten spells before fate intervenes and stops me. Moving to level 2 gives me an extra tally every day, and also decreases my chances of getting a tally from 25% to 16%, so it’s a significant step up. I’m not more powerful per se, but I have more control over how I cast spells. The system alternates every level between increasing raw spell power and increasing your ability to manage that power effectively.
 
As a Magician 5, I can get 5 tallies before I’m done for the day. I can cast spells of tier 1, 2, or 3, and I roll my tally die (1d8) every time I cast a spell; if I roll the tier of the spell I just cast or lower, I receive a tally. Tier 1 spells have only a 12.5% chance of giving me a tally, while tier 3 spells have a 37.5% chance of giving me a tally. Early in the day, I may not worry too much about getting a tally, so I drop a tier 3 spell when I maybe didn’t need to, because I don’t mind taking the risk. However, during the fight with the big bad, I might be at tally 4… so every spell I cast is a risk… yes, even a tier 1 spell could be the end of my casting day, or I could keep getting lucky and keep rolling high all day, never running out of energy.
 
As a Magician 10, I’m incredibly powerful. Even my best spells (tier 5) only have a 42% chance of giving me a tally, and I can get 10 of those… yes, I could be out for the day after ten tier 1 spells, but that would mean I’m doing nothing but rolling 1s on a d12, so that’s pretty unlikely…
 
Cantrips would have their own system; you just apply your tally die as both the chance of getting a tally and the total number of tallies for the day. You only get a tally on a 1; as a Magician 1, I use 1d4 as my tally die for cantrips, and I have 4 tallies worth of cantrips every day. As a Magician 10, I have an 8% chance of getting a cantrip tally (a 1 on 1d12), and I get 12 of those every day, so I use cantrips without a care. My availability (or lack thereof) of cantrips has nothing to do with my standard spell casting.
 
Please excuse my hyperbole, but I think that this system if frickin’ brilliant. All I have to write on my character sheet is (tier 3/tally 1d8) for my spell casting ability, and I know everything I need to know to run my spell points for that day.

[MODULE] The Forest of Gornate (NOW AVAILABLE!)

Beyond Fomalhaut - Thu, 11/17/2022 - 17:35
The Forest of GornateI am pleased to announce the publication of The Forest of Gornate. With cover and interior art by Denis McCarthy, and illustrations by Stefan Poag and Jerry Boucher, this is a 32-page module for characters level 3rd to 5th, describing an expansive forest in the pointcrawl format, as well as the mini-dungeons therein. Located next to the city of Mur (described In the Shadow of the City-God, a module that connects to, but is not essential for enjoying this one), the Forest of Gornate is a place of fallen civilisations, strange denizens, and natural wonders. Seek the treasures of a mysterious villa, the secrets of a reclusive bandit leader, win the patronage of the ancient and sinister Guild of Judges, or strike out on your own to seek fame and fortune in the forests, and the lands beyond. This is a scenario with 42+39 keyed areas, adventure hooks, rumours, and random encounters offering numerous possibilities for open-ended exploration and player-driven adventure inspired by Scorpion Swamp, the Fighting Fantasy classic.
“South of the dark walls of Mur, an overgrown forest lies between two mountain ranges. Its namesake, the immortal beast Gornate, noted for his thirty-six eyes and a peculiar taste for collecting human spinal columns, has made no sign of his presence in many years. Even so, the woodlands hide numerous dangers. Robber bands, man-eating beasts, abandoned manor houses and mysterious ruins dot a land divided by rivers and mountain ridges. The people of the city rarely venture into the forest, but recently, three notabilities have expressed an interest in sponsoring a hazardous, but lucrative expedition. While serving three masters may be too much for a single adventure, a resourceful and lucky company could return rich from… the Forest of Gornate!
The print version of the fanzine is available from my Bigcartel store; the PDF edition will be published through DriveThruRPG with a few months’ delay. As always, customers who buy the print edition will receive the PDF version free of charge.
Gornate is watching!
