Re: Ransom

That's interesting but breaks away from the system of all rolls being made on d6. How aboout success on 7+ on 2d6. Each 20% extra gives a cumulative +1 to the attempt. (this is a little more favourable to the player) You were also considering amending the rules to allow the prisoner to contribute to...

Re: At Silks and Sapphires

The assistant took meticulous measurements and noted that Fionn was an initiate of Lhankor Mhy and Hundred-Thane of the Free Philosophers, so details alluding to this status should be reflected in the finished outfit. "We have all we need for now, sir. I'm sure the proprietor will be in touch s...

Re: Ransom for Rufus

I can immediately pledge the 150 L that I offered for Griselna.

I do indeed have plans to urgently expand my premises as the product lines I wish to offer Boldhome far outstrip the current capacity I have. Sadly, at lea...

Re: Nobles toadying to non-nobles

I'm trying to think of real-world examples of where a high status individual might lavish praise upon somebody that would ordinarily be considered lower status, and tradespeople (in the broadest terms) is probably the best example. The Royal Family have always allowed certain firms to display "...
