I actually have "Montage" rules in Neoclassical Geek Revival.Whenever learning a new skill, if the intelligence check fails, the player can get a re-roll. They must begin singing an appropriate montage song (other players are encouraged to help) for at least 30 seconds while they re-roll.Current player favourites are Eye of the Tiger, Final countdown, and the montage song.
We had this same conversation about three npc farmers we saved from slavers. " Hell they are zero level now but let's spend a day in a montage and they will be at least second "
Isn't that bards?Anyway I have a spell based on this idea on my blog:http://teleleli.blogspot.com/2011/04/malakhis-melodious-montage.html
It occurs to me, though, that rules for a training montage to replace the expansive (and expensive) training rules in first edition AD&D could rock...
I think it's OK as long as you use some kind of classical music to set it too, and not some 80's pop crap, or Frank Stallone.
...rules for a training montage to replace the expansive (and expensive) training rules in first edition AD&D...My first thoughts on that idea were posted here, and a more detailed version will be my 24th out of the 25 September of Short Adventures. :-)Forget Eye of the Tiger; you've got to play Weird Al's Rye or the Kaiser!
