    Hey everybody. I think Boss Monster Card Game should have their own RPG game just like D&D and Pathfinder. What do you think about this idea?

    I've played Boss Monster before, and I think the idea can alrwady be done with the RPG systems such as D&D and Pathfinder with some adaptation. A gold cost for room abilities, with advanced rooms having prereqs.

    Probably best done with a system like 5e, where PCs are easily generated. Or you can just use the NPC statblocks.

    It would be a different sort of game, but probably best done as a supplement to an existing D&D edition rather than it's own if you want it to get off the ground easily enough. Too simple of a game would put you right back with the card game.

    Time ebbs and flows here. Sometimes it is fast, sometimes not. There's not a lot to talk about in recent days I think.

    Well I do use Boss Monster Hero cards as character sheets but only in D&D 3.5 and a few in Pathfinder.

    Well, not a lot, obviously. This is a fairly decently paced thread with modern standards, though. The last one went on for over nine months.

    It's been a slow but steady decline. At least Random Banter still exists, many of the other community threads have completely kicked the bucket...

    But as I recall, those cards really just have hitpoints.

    If I were to do a larger game that isn't just a series of D&D onw shots, you are going to need to have something where you can generate opponents quickly for the dungeons. Perhaps something like Small World for slapping class templates on a given PC race.

    It could be an interesting idea for sure. I personally probably would just slap something together for personal use vs. buying a pre done version.

    I do use the hit points equal to the Constitution modifier for my character sheet.

    For example: Mikey Dangerously 4 HP=14 Constitution ability score.

    But I understand what you're saying. Also most heroes cards have their own backstory.

    Funny story, a friend of my parents had one of those...And it must have been okay living with him despite being a wild animal because it would climb onto a bookcase and pee on anyone his 'owner' didn't like...Even if he was trying to hide it.

    RB threads aren't as quick as they used to be. Also, I don't think I've seen you in what feels like forever.

    So, in a bizarre turn of events, this morning a bird flew into the screened off portion of my skylight in the bathroom of our house while I was doing some business, noticed me and my three cats who were also in the bathroom with me because they wanted to be fed and were waiting. The cats saw it as well and it freaked the heck out and did ITS business all over me and my three cats. Had to clean my cats, the bathroom, and then myself (luckily I hadn't gotten ready for work yet).

    On Saturday I went to the New York Aquarium with my friend who used to be my co-worker at my job. We have a great time.

    My laptop has been acting up for a while, running the fan high even at low CPU usage, and more recently getting graphical glitches and crashing when running graphics intensive applications under wrong circumstances. I suspect overheating caused by dust accumulation over the four years I've had it, and with my vacation just having started, I've gotten around to taking it down to the computer repair shop in the shopping gallery downstairs.

    Naturally, they're of the kind that sends the computer away for repairs at a central facility, so now I'm without a computer until Friday. Let's see what means there are to entertain myself instead...

    It's a little bit annoying typing on a mobile phone which wants to correct everything you write to Swedish. The keyboard is set to be dual language, but it apparently doesn't detect it...
