Quick Note - Playtest Questions

Quick questions for everyone in regards to the upcoming Chromatic Commandos playtest.

1. What is your preferred VTT of the following: Fantasy Grounds II, Roll20, Realm Works, Hangouts
2. What is your preferred time of day of the following: Mornings, Late Evenings
3. What is your preferred day of the week?

I am hoping to get go with the alpha playtest for Chromatic Commandos in two weeks and run it through the summer (barring breaks for marriage and other people's vactions) for an early fall release.

for anyone who missed the last two posts (here and here) Chromatic Commandos is a Power Rangers-like roleplaying game loosely based on the d20 rules as filtered by the OSR movement. The complete book will hopefully be around 20 pages long and be a paid print product, pay-what-you-want digitial product.

The current proposed format for the playtest would be bi-weekly games of approximately 2 hours in length and a request to e-mail me any thoughts on what worked and what did not during the game. Each player will receive  a copy of the alpha rules and updates there-in until release. I am hoping to send codes to all playtesters for a at-cost (unless I can figure out how to gift them) copy of th eprint version of the game when released.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!


Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
