    Hi mhorgunn,

    Like you, I have also very recently retired far sooner than expected and I will be looking forward to both dm'ing and playing on Fantasy Grounds for as many years as possible with players and dungeon masters both young and old!

    This is a really cool idea, and a clever way to take advantage of LOS. I'm really looking forward to trying something similar in my campaign. Thanks!

    I sit corrected, Dulux-Oz. Still I thank you for all you do.

    While I appreciate the kind words and the thoughts behind them, the MOTD Extension is not one of mine - its one of Trenloe's.

    And everything that mhorgunn said about me goes double or even triple for Trenloe.

    (And its Dulux-Oz, not Delux-Oz )

    Ahmen! *sings the choir*

    I think that video does a good job laying out the costs. But agree that he misses a few things on cost and a lot of other things in a comparison.

    The savvy consumer knows that nothing is free. Unfortunately our school system does not do a good job educating the populace on that. And people see "free" and think it really is. But, we all know its not. And in those few cases when it really is free to the consumer (i.e. you're not giving up personal information etc), it's not sustainable as a business model. The developers and providers deserve to get paid, and someone has to pay them.

    I'd rather be gaming than fiddling trying to get something to work. FG all the way.

    More importantly, where did it come from (ie where can I get one?)

    Oh I totally agree. Two sessions ago, I had planned an encounter with up to 3 waves of Cocatrice. I ask what level they felt like that night and they replied medium. Yep waves and two petrified characters later they all agreed they had gotten exactly what they had asked for. And left the table happy.

    What gob smacked me was I had been doing touching base all along. Jim I knew wasn't happy. He's a good player but has to be reminded to let others shine. I had two other players in mind which this one. He wasn't happy that he had to wait for the spotlight.

    Twenty minutes before the meltdown, I had just touched base with all the players and they seemed onboard. Even Jim seemed to finally be coming around. Then BAM!!!! Hit the wall and had to do some reavaluating fast. I asked the players questions on what was bothering them and their input on what would make it fun again. As you pointed out those two axioms are golden. But a good DM also has to know that when you are playing sometimes things can change on a dime and at best you have to back up a bit and pick up the pieces.

    Nice entry - brought back a few memories of "helping" out my own players.

    The two greatest curses of all time:

    1) May you live in interesting times.

    2) Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it.

    And a corollary to the above:

    a) Be wary of the GM, for they are quick to give you what you want, in very interesting ways.

    Nice find, I have never seen that one before but I have used the one for the HarnMaster system before.

    Just to satisfy the curious ... Droop poops two coins a day at present.

    I agree, nicely done. Might be a little doodle to you, but proportions and coloring are all well done. I too would hope to see the original.

    I wanna see the original!!!!!!!! WAAAAAAA!!!!!!

    Serious, nice work. Do you do commissions, or would you consider such a thing?

    Great idea! Once they have their fancy badges, you can bring in a group of NPC's with even fancier badges. Presto, instant rivals! Love it!
