Structure of Forum


He busily scurried about his hidden laboratory, pressing buttons and pulling levers! He flicked through vast, thick volumes of lore to find the perfect spell, the perfect skill to make his creation work, he muttered, sang, danced about in devilish glee when something went right and spoke in strange unspeakable language (created by Demons) when something failed. He was Game Master and his life was HELL!!!


I posted earlier about removing some posts and placing them in the new forum I created called "Forum of Comments!"

This is to allow when reading through each Forum for good ideas that folks have had, not started reading their suggestions of ideas. So some of the posts have been cut, copied, hack to death and what is left made into a new feat or Manoeuvre, etc!

So just so you know, there is nothing wrong with the forum and it working good enough, except I cannot merge posts (I can now) even though I given myself permission to do so, one day I asks the "Powers that Be!' (sorted it myself) how that works as I believe it broke as all the other options work!

So all revised comments and general conclusion to problems with be place along side the thank you messages and other stuff, except abuse which will be incinerated from this forum!

Just a short note to tell that I having a slight rest from working at this Conan RPG Site, but have plans for future in adding more interesting stuff to these Forums. I will not tell you what is planned for future as it not fun waiting for stuff and never getting it, but as I imagine this as a place that going to continue on for years, if not eternity and there no need to rush anything! smile.gif

New Progress

"Work, work, work....!"

There are many things happening within Thurian Continent as stated in other Posts, in other forums within this Thurian Site, but I plan to make this my new "Comment Forum," just to mention progress of Site/Forums and what is going to occur in future or why things might look like it stopped!

1: Spellbook of Skelos: Progressing great, but I adding Sorcery Styles that not have many spells in them. But soon I be getting to Necromancy and my greatest dread. Sure it will get done, that not the issue. It just it may take weeks or months, so a slow progress as it be knoweth that it got 48 spells and I only copied 9 of them at present and hmm, it a groan!

2: Is a hidden secret that no mortal should know of..., Naw (joke), What is 2? Ah, I only have Curses (20/31) and Hypnotism (14/33) copied from Conan the Roleplaying Game, rest not done: Which are: Nature Magic (4/26), Necromancy (9/48), Oriental Magic (0/23), Prestidigitation (0/14) and Summonings (2/25).

I created a Files called Archives of Skelos which I place every spell in from the other sourcebooks, cataloguing them into Sorcery Styles for easy access. So note Brackets above; the first number is how many I copied (to this date) and the last number is how many there is in total (if they not grow, as I see a possible spell as I read them or create a Greater spells from those that are from the original spells).

more News later...

At Present Summer 2013

"With the wind in your hair!"

Thought I leave a short note to explain what I doing at the present. It is summer and hot and tiring (I constantly say, "winter is best time to work at my Forum," and think I just realise myself how correct it is).

So, I out and about working in garden, going walks in the parks of Glasgow with my old Grandmother (94 years, and Mother, who is 71 years) trying to make her life comfortable for them and still exciting. This pushing her in a wheelchair, even if she is under 7 stone in weight, still ruptured by muscles around my spinal column and is no fun. Guess we get older as we watch others getting old, we just not truly see that we are getting older also! smile.gif (I getting to be 48 soon and being near 50 with my beard turning nearly completely grey makes me think of serious stuff like family and making them happy (also not leaving me out of this theory as I love my Conan Game).

Also join another PbP in last month based on "The One Ring," in the Middle-Earth world. It my only other PbP, other that the ones I do in this site and I greatly enjoy The Lord of the Rings.

So, also, plans to move home. Hmm, how does this affect me, I actually feel good about it, but it has the odd problem, but not as bad I would expect. Still will not happen till early next year, but moving my stuff out of this abode bit by bit back to my family house, if two little old ladies is a family, clan comes first in my world.

Still once my computers are moved, I can start work with my normal effort, again, Their house is more peaceful than one I in a present and I spend most of my time there, but without my computers, work I could do, is not getting done and will probably get by broadband convert to that house in the being of this coming winter.

So, that is it, thought I explain my plans and that without a doubt I will be returning with vigour to finish work in my "Scrolls of Skelos," thread, which is my most important agenda at present for this site, amongst other things, my other interest for example is Pentagrams, much like 1st Edition "Stormbringer," rules from Chaosium to create a more complexed Demon Summoning process.

So, happy trekking my Thurian Wanders and "CROM!"

Slight error worth making note of

I had believed they had removed "Fighting on the Run," rule, but it still in 2nd Edition, feel slightly awkward, but slight error will occur in transmission, Cause I not perfect (yet), but working at it! smile.gif

Still I edited a post concerning the rule Here:

I notice I giving reasons why I absent in summer and it not easy this Autumn/Winter as I slowly moving house, but still believe Winter is best time for working on Thurian Continent. Still, I obviously here doing PbPs and will return later to continue working at the various projects within Thurian!

The End is usually the beginning of something else, Yeah right


"The Power of inviciblity!"


Back to work, been a bit of a slow choir getting stuff orginized here, normal life, and other concerns.

Still as expected, I have started again with Spell Lists within the 'Scrolls of Skelos,' and Prestidigitation is now complete, adding an extra spell (more spliting one spell into two and creating a Greater version), and commencing working on Curses, which should appear in a few days!

Not much else to communicate, except the Thurian Continent Forum is still growing, and it good to get back to working at it again!

Touch of Madness

"What are thee, who seek to enter my mind and plague me, probably Google Chrome!"

I have started to notice strange effects in forums, my BBcodes are being scrambled, I not sure why it can do this to stuff permanently posted, but it is!

Stupid ? marks, upside down, etc plague the scripts and I believe I would have to go through the 5,000+ post to make sure each one is fine. I can only image that these clever folks, just trying to help, will delete the whole forum one day, and go oops!

But, calm is the word and I am most assuringly attempting to stay calm!

Still, "Curses," done, with not much problems, except the few changes I have added.

It late here in Scotland and I need a REST, Mentally (Calm!!!) and physically, BASTARD!!! no fine, calm, at peace with myself!!

Wheew, guess as part of nature, one is not meant to be calm when something ANNOYS YA!!!

Goodnight!

Edit: Hypnotism (14/33), Nature Magic (4/26), Necromancy (9/48), Oriental Magic (0/23) and Summonings (2/25).

Continium

Will continue later with spells, I do feel a lack of enthusiasm as this forum is constantly being disrupted! But will keep trying to endure!

Nature Magic (4/26), Necromancy (9/48), Oriental Magic (0/23) and Summonings (2/25).

A Error Fixed:


Masks of the Tibu; Frog Mask:

Can use the mask's abilities, yes, but I not added "per week," it is added now and makes more sense. Sorted. smile.gif

I had started work on these masks last year, and of late being starting to get back to finishing stuff I had started away back then.

Even the Island of Sorrow Scenario had been near finished, but it only been lately that I got the will to finish it.


Spells:

Started work on Oriental Magic, but though easy to copy (now that I got my first pair of reading glasses two weeks ago), but two of the spells and some feats from "Free Companies," do not make sense, so I am now focused on adapting them to the Mass Combat Rules (that 3 different types of rules), so what should have taken two days, has now turned into weeks!

This also caused me to look at the Mass Combat from "Empires," and I think a lot of it was unfinished and untested and that Vincent was only starting to organized the book before the end and had no time to finish it! So, I trying to sort his work to make more sense.

I near finished, but need to play-test the results of the changes (and adapt each spell and Feats to each Mass Combat System), so will sort first.

So again, needing a few more weeks, but just to tell the Adventurers of Thurian that things are starting to resume again on these forums. smile.gif

Spelling not Spells:

Well doing a Forum reshuffle (proper posts in proper forums), and attempting to edit any bad grammar, spelling errors, etc.

Also removing a lot of large and bulky pictures and placing them on my Flickr account in their correct sizes (so you will see a few bump post lately).

And adding a lot of stuff I had created over the last decade that I use as tools to create PDFs, thought some person might enjoy them!

So forums looking a lot better than before.

Just another progress report of Thurian.

Very happy with my Flickr forum, helps a lot with pictures and charts instead of just using it for my Adventure photos.

Computer Problems:

I still here, been working at more Conan D20 RPG stuff, though think I am at that stage with the new 2D20 Conan Game taking precedence, of thinking "what is the use," but I shall continue, D20 Conan is my game and it will stay my game.

With this new version will no doubt be some interesting gameplay and Hyborian Age knowledge, but it not for me.

I did put 60 into their Kickstarter to get as many PDFs of their gamebooks, but that as much as I want, though I would wish them luck in their venture, but that would be like saying I wished Mongoose with the D20 Conan the same luck and look what happen to them, so I will refrain!

But the real reason for this post is both my computers I use to store and create my Conan D20 stuff are broken, though the one in Computer shop is fixed, I not have it and the other is needing some serious work (and that is the one I use to transfer to stuff to this forum).

This has been happening for near 2 weeks and I a little stranded, and I was for weeks before working on more SK maps (though in theory, they completed now for Mike's SK Savage East book and I should not have to do any more), but I just need get computer problems sorted and back to work.

I will be back!

Computers Fixed:

Well, my computers are fixed last week (one, was just clogged with dust, but at least it not smell like it on fire each time I turn it on). Been working at NPCs, just to re-focus, but the power is not return as fast as I would hope.

Still, things like Win10 I just installed, creating Microsoft Edge access is still not good for this Forum and still coming in in normal "Internet Explorer," is best.

For those who not know how to access in "Microsoft Edge," just click 3 dots at right top corner, scroll down and click "Open with Internet Explorer."

I try to return to PbP soon also!


Edit: Oh, Yeah, it been over 5 years since I started forum, So big drum roll and blaring trumpets in celebration!

Another Spelling Error:

For those who enjoyed, just noticed another error, one out of the millions and fixed.

Constition - Constitution:

Speed and Health: Also fixed the link in "Conan Useful Aids!"

Also started working a Necromancy spells, but it as per usual has turned into a struggle.

The Basic Raise Corpse spell cost 1 PP and as folks would guess it raised a Risen Dead. But now it can raise Grey Apes and who knows what else for just 1 PP (2nd Edition of course). This means with no sized restriction or HD restriction, that a 4th level Necromancer could raise a 44 HD Greater Serpent of Set and bring onto Thurian at 88 HD; now he only needs to find a dead very large snake. But truth is the flaw need not be so serious, but you get the idea and only for 1 PP.

I am adding restrictions, but believe it or not, it is talking me near a week to do and still not finished and that is only one spell, but need to get it right. Structure, exactness and rot!!!

Seven Seals and other Errors

In doing Necromancy Seven Seal structure for the Raise Corpse spell I notice a very slight flaw to Page 1 on the Tool Aids I supplied earlier.

Fixed flaw, near un-noticeable, but had to fix..

Changed in original link, but give here also.

Here:

New Seven Seals
