Make a small donation to the con charity and you can challenge a Savage Worlds celeb to a tailgate game like washers, ladde...

Re: ETU Site Down

Faculty/Staff directory is back and even better than before. I also restored several articles from the old site. Next up is the campus calendar.

Re: ETU Site Down

Congrats on the new campaign!

I'll make sure we restore the faculty page and school calendar. Can't promise how quickly, though.

Re: ETU Site Down

Thanks buddy. Actually that was due to a catastrophic wordpress upgrade. I've managed several wordpress sites for more than a decade now, and I've never had a simple update go as horrible wrong as that one did. I kept hoping I'd be able to restore from a backup, but I wasn't having any luck. Your po...

Re: [ETU] East Texas University School Colors?

Even though I've had the tune in my head ever since I wrote the lyrics, to the best of my knowledge it has never actually been put to music beyond our a capella performances at game tables. Ed posted a video on Facebook of a table singing the song at OwlCon last month. I'll try to run a group throug...

Re: [ETU] Scary Texas

It's definitely a cool idea. As a GM aid, I'd be tempted to turn them into table tents. You'd have the public info on the front and on the back facing you would be his name, attributes, and so on. That way everything is easily in sight if you need to roll for the character.

Re: [ETU] Leaving Degrees of Horror

For grad students-- and especially given that it's a small group-- I'd do more adventures using themes from their chosen degree. The folklore degree is almost too easy, but you didn't mention what the other degree would be. In either case, I'd try to craft adventures that let them use their degree's...

Re: [ETU] Suggestions for Degrees of Horror

So a little more about advancement and XP, because that seems to cause heartburn for GMs. My perception is that it's an issue because midterms and finals are tied to XP. This means GMS get caught up trying to schedule adventures and dole out XP such that every 5 XP coincides with the middle or end o...

Re: [ETU] - Freshman Local favourite

There are two answers. 1) As the Dean, it works however you want it to work. 2) Locals can get a commuter exemption if their permanent residence is within the county. The student must live at home and not move out into their own apartment. A commuter exemption does not change their Semester Allowance.

I love MHI so I wish I could say this would be an easy conversion, but I don't think ETU is the answer to the problem you're trying to solve. I think Zadmar probably has the right idea. Agents of Oblivion would be a better fit.

As some other people have mentioned, Last Rites was first released as a PDF in 2003. It was the very first Pinebox adventure by 12 to Midnight and the first commercial adventure written by Ed Wetterman. It was well received by fans and even caught the eye of this guy named Shane Hensley who had just...

This might be a good time to remind everyone about fightingravens.com . We post a new "news article" from the the ETU campus every week. At this point we have 26 published articles you can use as plot seeds, and more will come every week. All free, of course. Needless to say, we're also wo...

AggieCon 46 - March 27-29

Some of the 12 to Midnight team (Ed Wetterman, Preston DuBose, Jerry Blakemore, and TC Largent) will be at AggieCon in College Station, Texas from March 27-29. We'll be in a number of panels, running a dealer table filled with Savage Worlds products, and yes, gaming. If you're in Texas, make plans t...

My goal is to keep FightingRavens.com 100% "in character" so we might have to be a little selective, but yeah. I also want to get the campus map up there. Maybe we can make the buildings clickable so it pulls up the description.

Maybe a campus building? Dr. Patrick O’Brien Administration Building - This oddly shaped building was built back in the 1930s and is two stories tall. The building is known for its maze of hallways and small, dark offices. Students and staff alike have claimed to wander the narrow hallways of the se...

I'd make him come up with his own reason for the character to tag along; or else make a new character. Any actor who needs to rely on the director for motivation needs to be fired. I'm a fan of Fear the Boot's Group Template , a short template the group fills out together before character creation....

For what it's worth, you could use the same set pieces in a "carnival comes to town" adventure in which people enter a fun house and never exit or go on a ride and exit with very different personalities. For a twist, maybe the carnival is actually a group of good guys whose rides exorcise ...
