House-rule Dump! Here’s my first run at how I’m going to treat armour and such: EPT_armour_shields_weapons01 I’ll be granting players the option of giving their characters either the rules-as-written version of Constitution bonuses/penalties or this version by Glenn Rahman, from Dragon 31 (no back and forth though; you’re either an ox or an ocelot: choose):… Read more »
