Uhm...I don't know... Don't they represent how much damage you took? Dodging and ducking would be if the enemy didn't beat your AC. Maybe you're referring to the vitality/wound system(a.k.a. the cursed one)
I keep meaning to add a defense bonus system. I've always disliked the fact that, even aside from armor issues, there's nothing about a character's skill or martial training that has anything to do with how hard they are to hit.
They way the AC RAW work, your character just sort of stands there while an opponent is trying to hit them.
Yeah, I know what you're talking about. I guess we have something in common about our dislkes of the ac rule...
I don't think you'd need a rule for armor hit points. You could just tell them that if they get hit by that Zeus' lightning again his armor will get destroyed. Cuz if you wanna make a rule for each little error in D&D,you're DEAD!!

Yeah, thats the main problem...maybe develop a set of new rules that makes heroes without armor and with good DEX be capable of dodging hits(and therefore avoiding the whole attack, maybe with a percentage dice). I haven't figured it out yet so....

Armour making characters hard to hit instead of absorbing damage. Makes no sense.
SOOO0000ooo true, but then if armors gave DR, what would happen to the Dr given by magic or natural armor? Would they stack? WHy not? An that would be the next problem.
I even created a chrat for dr from armor(since I didn't like the ones in the Iron Heroes' book). Here it is :
I remember I had a chart for magic and masterwork armor, but don't where i put it... I hope this helps, bro.
I have a question for the Dungeon staff. I'll be moving to another country in 2 weeks(so between the end of june and beginning of july) and I'm afraid I won't be able to get the last issue of my subsciption, which would be # 150. Any suggestions in what should I do?(could I use the subsciption $ for that issue to maybe order something else?)

Now that's pretty cool. I was thinking of doing the same thing. The wizards from d&d are kinda lame. A wizards should be feared because of his knowledge of magic and that stuff but it seems they can only be cool in books( Raistlin!!).
I actually thought it was alright. It's true that Keith Richards appearence didn't make any sense, neither did the Calypso thing(why did we never heard of that hook before?!?) but hey, look at the bright side, at least they ressurected Jack-though I wished he had survived the fight against the krake, which would have made him the super pirate who survives a fight against the kraken.
I didn't like that Jack didn't have the guts to become the new captan of the Dutch, but still the movie was pretty funny and action-packed(ship battle in the whirlpool!!)
It makes me sad that the rod of 7 parts doesn't play a major part in the adventure at all. I mean, why to introduce one part if you know they're not important in the adventure...?

TRUE THAT. SPIDEY COULDN'T CRAWL HIS WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG!!!
I was thinking of not making the pcs a part of an organization, dunno, it sounds too railroaded... And im brainstorming a little(imagine the pcs in the mall full of zombies, like some game for the x-box?)..
Also, some adventures about mystery and assassination would be cool...i DON'T KNOW, D20MODERN seemss like the only genres you can play is horror, mystery, sci-fi
I was thinking of surprising my players with an adventure for d20 modern or future, but I think it's probably gonna be modern, since I bought star wars d20 last year and they really want to play that game, and I think d20 future and star wars are too similar, so I'll just go with d20modern. Anyone has any suggestions for topics? I wanted to start a resident evil campaign but am afraid it might get dull. Whatdyu think?

Pathfinder won't be for everyone, but there's more to it than an adventure you'll only play once. Check out the Pathfinder Blog post for a breakdown of all the other support material you'll be seeing in each volume. In the end, though, I certainly understand your feelings of betrayal and anger. All I can really ask is for you to check out Pathfinder when it hits the shelves in a few months. Until then, we're hard at work making the last few issues of Dragon and Dungeon as awesome as we can.
By the way, what will be the first adventure about? And is it that each book has one adventure or each book has a chapter of that adventure?
One question: how did you start your campign? A rip-off of a resident evil game, where each ps controls an important character, like leon and etc; or you created your own "version"?

Adding the type writer would be kind of weird though.
I thought the ullolok was some kind of a statue-not a living thing(although he certainly likes to bite people's fingers}
Anyways....gamers today seem weirdos who don't shower and are unable to start a conversation. Today, our "little" group of 15 are starting a fight against a red dragon(ancient one and we are all lvl 5)
So far, my greates villain was Balabar Smenk from the Age of Worms Adventure Path. He's crooked, he's bad, and he's got money up his $%$.
The pcs managed to capture him and the Ragnolin dwarf, but 1 week later Smenk was nowhere to be seen, while Ragnolin was dead, his throat cut.
EMO is When referring to a person's personality and attitude, most definitions of emo hold that an "emo person" is candid about their emotions, sensitive, shy, introverted, broken-hearted, glum, and often quiet. Emo personality is also often connected with writing poetry, which addresses confusion, depression, loneliness, and anger, all resulting from the world's inability to understand the author.
Humn...interesting...it makes me wonder if Shake-spear(that's the coolest way to spell it) and the other famous poets were kinda depressed too. And why the heck do we study poems anyways...
ARGH!!! WHAT THE HELL IS A ROUGE CHARACTER?!?! I hate when I've know idea of what people are talking about... ):
I was at Borders when I saw one book about Rokugan and I really liked but first I'd like to know more before buying it. I'd appreciate if you guys posted any info about it or any websites I should look for. Other thing: I saw that there was another system than D20 for Rokugan.. How does that work? What's Void, clans, etc. blablbala...
Heck no!! You can't let them roll their own disable device tests or you take the surprise from it. If you do it secretly, they won't know for sure if the rogues disabled the trap, and if someone gets hurt it's fun to see everyone cursing the rogue. : )
