So i have friends who i have started to get more into tabletop, not been 'that guy' and friend-hostage'd them mind you they genuinely are asking and getting interested. Thanks to shadespire being an amazing gateway game i suppose.

But its halloween season coming around and as well as watching horror movies and replaying shit like Resident Evil like we do every year this year they are asking about /tg/ related stuff.

Be it board games or rpgs whats a good one shot game? Theres board games like Betrayal and House on the Hill, homebrew games like Dread and maybe even the demo's for stuff like Prometheus or Hunter.

What do you consider a fun spooky game for an evening of play to get beginners into tabletop during the halloween season?

Mansions of Madness is better and less full of random bullshit. Last time I played that, the group accidentally found 3 out of 4 MacGuffin items before we even found the random haunt event.


Here's a fun game.

>Go home and down the entire thing in one sitting.


>Pass out.

>But where's the spooky?

I don't think it would be super spooky or even very creepy but you might want to look at Straight to VHS. It's like bad B-movies that are fun for all the wrong reasons, it would work well for a horror movie themed campaign.

This thread is for GM's to talk about campaigns they're running and Game Master experiences.

>running a game today

>start trying to take notes and get ready for it

>getting distracted

>decide "fuck it, i'll improvise the rest"

does this happen to anyone else every single time?

I used to meticulously plan my sessions and character stats and everything. Now I just take a few notes for events and outlines for sessions and improvise the rest. I've been doing this for all my sessions lately, I guess I'm past the "meticulous planning" stage of GMing.

What games ya running, lads? I'm currently ~24-25 sessions into my Legends of the Wulin campaign. PC's are getting ready to rally all the surviving Wulin fighters in the land in a rebellion against the Dynasty after the "Emperor was assassinated" and power assumed by a eunuch demonic sorcerer.

Tell me more about your Wulin game.

I never get to see it in action but I still shill pretty hard for it since the whole thing seems pretty innovative for the huge mess it is


Newbie DM here.

I'm wanna start a campaign with DCC. I'm not too surr about the setting it comes with, do you guys think I can set it in Warhammer fantasy without much issue? I really like the setting and I think fits well with the super lethal nature of DCC.



Disagree. No plan survives first contact with the players. Moreover, if the players are too stupid to figure out the puzzle then having a solution to it isn't going to help because they'll too stupid to figure that out too. Maybe have a workaround but plans, more often than not, work against the players because it dis-incentivizes different approaches to a problem. If the players decide to smash down the wall rather than solve the puzzle, then okay, but if your plan is for them to work out the puzzle you're going to be naturally resistant to any of the alternatives that the PCs come up with.

That's why you have backups in case they're too dumb to figure it out, numbnuts.


File: 6dfcaeef1a89bb0⋯.jpg (9.8 KB, 250x250, 1:1, 5d6.jpg)


Or you could just not be a shit-tier GM let them figure out their own solution. But do it your way. Just try to ignore the growing frustration at the table when they can't read your mind and figure out your only-obvious-to-you backup.

Since we're on the subject of puzzles I feel it necessary to point out the fact that puzzles are fucking retarded. In 20+ years of gaming the only reaction I've seen when the GM breaks out a puzzle (or a riddle) are sighs, groans, and facepalms.

We've done threads like these before, but this time I'd like to add a twist to the process. After a few days, or once we feel we have enough material to work with, we will stop adding details to the setting, and proceed to refine what we have, and then work on collectively homebrewing or adapting to an existing system what we have into a playable game.

The rules are as follows:

>Each post adds to the setting, as long as it's not completely moronic, or contradictory to a previous post

>If a post is too dumb, edgy, or difficult to work with, it can be vetoed as long as several anons agree

>The goal is to make a workable setting, so participate with the notion in mind that this must be a world that can be explored, interacted with, have stories told within it, and generally used as part of a game

I'm going to put the deadline for additions and new material at Sunday evening. If we need more time or we have too much left to develop, we can always extend that deadline.

Since we had a lot of fun last time deckbuilding, why don't we try that again?

Post a legendary creature and a theme, and others can post suggestions for it. Also, we can just talk about interesting cards and interactions, or whatever else related to the format.

To start things off, this fellow, with the goal to be the (((Greatest Ally))) of the table.

Some cards that fit that theme:



Briber's Purse


Conjured Currency

Land Tax


Trade Routes

Gilded Drake

Shrewd Negotiation

Corrupted Conscience

War Tax

Soul Tithe

Guile (with Dovescape as a wincon)

File: 6b3d0dae60e6ccb⋯.jpg (30.3 KB, 223x310, 223:310, Image.jpg)

I had an idea for a deck where you don't attack anyone, instead you put up a bunch of wall and/or big butts then proceed buff and help all the other players with pic related as your commander. The only problem is you need to play with at least 2 others for it to work which isn't hard. And 2 i'm not sure if it would be fun enough to be worth the money, thought i'd share my idea though.

So thanks to a bunch of people at my shop thinking I'm a liar and forcing me to outline the process, I took the time to sit down and map out the cards explicitly needed in order to pull off an effective deck swap. Since it's all in front of me, organized, I might as well share it all with you guys.


>Indefinite mana (actually not, but there's no way you're going to shit out the 100+ colorless mana through lands).

>Indefinite instant/sorcery duplication (usually played through something like the above + Nivix Guildmage or something)

>Mastermind's Aquisition on the stack.

>Cards in pile (B) to swap to (either a new deck, a gimmick field a la challenge event decks, 99 copies of Grizzly Bears, etc)

>>Stroke of Genius, Pull From Tomorrow, or a similar card besides Blue Sun's Zenith within this selection to draw your deck

The Process

With the field set up to indefinitely copy a spell, play a Mastermind's Acquisition, copying it to tutor for the cards you want to swap into, along with the rest of the cards mentioned in this post.

Optional: I am assuming that you have some access to black mana if you're casting Mastermind's Acquisition. If you don't, you'll need a minimum of one more if you follow this down to the letter. However, you will need a heavy source of blue mana, so if you don't have that, then your priority should be setting up an infinite source of blue mana. "Dramatic Scepter" + Gilded Lotus will simplify everything here.

Drop a Call the Bloodline, then play your Stroke of Genius While there are other discard effects that don't require mana, you shouldn't need to worry about paying the 1 at this point, and the token creation will be relevant later. Use your selected draw spell to pull everything from your deck into your mega-hand, then discard all of the cards except for your next turn's hand, the restPost too long.

>But isn't everything still technically there in Exile?

Unless your group has a house rule about allowing A.W.O.L, yes, but nobody plays Processors, so who cares?

>Isn't my commander still the old one, though?

Yes, so swap carefully, mind your board state, and keep a counterspell handy.

>Can't I use this to set up a stupid field like Possibility Storm + Memory Pool + Hive Mind after playing Obliterate?

Yes, but keep in mind that if your table doesn't like the idea, or you get too complex, they'll probably just leave. When you combo'd off to do this, a lot of them already accepted that they weren't really going to win the game anyway, even if you swapped to your weakest deck.

>What colors are needed for this? Can I go find cards outside of my commander's colors for this?

Establish some good house rules on Wish cards before trying this shit to save some headaches.

On the colors needed, either Red or Black going in to either use Burning Wish to get Acquisition or just play Acquisition itself.


Why not?

>No, I mean Why-Why?

I consider it lowkey revenge for all of the shit that my playgroup has pulled throughout the years, and for one of its tryhard members trying to talk shit about me to the others within it. Plus, it's a fun little party trick that keeps the game going in a way that doesn't really give anyone a reason to complain after going off with a semi-competitive combo deck. I could win consistently on turn 3 and leave everyone who doesn't want to learn how to actually get gud butthurt, or I could pull a wild card and just start playing an aggro tribal/group hug/landfall/etc deck out of nowhere and continue the game like nothing ever happened while everyone at the table is still wrapping their heads around what just happened. Or just replace everything with 6 20/20 unblockable tokens to see if anyone there actually learned to put in spot removal yet.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

stuff that inspires you to play the game and gives you ideas isn't inherently bad, though I have my own convictions against 5e (the way dying works is completely silly, everything feels a lot more "dumbed down" imo) and also the way that mercer runs his sessions should not be a baseline. I see it sucking the originality out of new players I meet as they think that they should basically imitate mercer and his players because they're "doing it right." Hell, the two new players often complain that 3.5e is "too complicated" and should be "more like a videogame" because I'm certain that mercers stuff seems a lot more smooth and scripted.



The curse of moderately entertaining RPG podcasts is that they give you such a strong itch for a fun game like that. They make you want to gather around the table and share laughs and clever ideas with friends for a few hours... Even though, in reality, half the table won't be paying attention, one guy will need to reference the rulebook every 5 minutes, the GM won't be able to keep things moving along at a decent pace without railroading...

Something about recording a session makes people behave differently, I guess. I've seen this at conventions too. Dumb behavior drops to negligible amounts when players know that they have a strict schedule or an audience. It's like performance anxiety, but in a good way, because they know they have to make things, fun, memorable, and have it all run smoothly, instead of having no pressure at all and just running loose and lazy.



that description is way older than 5e

That second one is parasitic as fuck, and even in ideal situations the +2 is usually a blank ability since you can just kill any pw outright. Why the fuck would anyone run this when there are already kill spells that can hit pws?


>whenever a creature you control attacks, you may pay [whatever] and return that creature to your hand. If you do, put 2 1/1 blue ninja creature tokens onto the battlefield tapped and attacking

Not exactly the same but it's the same basic idea.


Pity sage because I deleted my last post and therefore this is a dualpost.(396022)


>Not exactly the same but it's the same basic idea.

Nnnot really, since it doesn't have a way to help the main card hit face. Maybe if it gave the card that returned to your hand Ninjutsu then?

Alternatively I could just use your card idea since its okay.

I had to re-read that five times to figure out what you were trying to do with it. Granted it strips the original entering attacking (the wording would have been clunky,) but consider the following.


You know what I'll just go to sleep and explain this better tomorrow. I still think the Assassin explanation is good enough, though.



>That second one is parasitic as fuck

What are you talking about? Planeswalkers are evergreen since Lorwyn, it's no more parasitic than any other spell that targets planeswalkers.

>Why the fuck would anyone run this when there are already kill spells that can hit pws?

I don't understand the question. Isn't this like asking "why would anyone run Chandra when there are already burn spells?"?

They haven't shown a whole lot of any new units, other than what I'm assuming are the replacements for the buggies. It's got me a little worried.



They’ve shown some new Ork vehicles. But they have had an almost nonexistent showing for infantry.

Most people were hoping for a new Ghazkull model. But we’re only halfway through the month, so GW better wow people by the thirty first or else Orktober will be a wash. Though, they still have yet to release the codex.



Seeing the pox commander can cost upto and over 100 points on his own, this was bound to happen. Hopefully players will keep KT in its standard format and not become 40K-lite-but-with-sequence. Else, I might as well be playing 300 point 40k games so I could bring in a transport as well.

What's Yvraine up to now? Is she ballin for Guillimayne while he's trying to unfuck the Imperium? Does he know about Ynnead? How would he feel about the Eldar birthing another god?

someone please draw Guilliman as a soundcloud rapper



As far as I know, Yvraine fucked off to do Eldar things. Like get more worshippers for Ynnead, beef up the god power so it can go toe to toe with Slaanesh. Guilimang is slowly trying to unfuck the Imperium, but all of his chaotic brothers are coming out of the warpwork to bully him. I’m guessing Fulgrim is going to be the next one to try out the “let’s fuck with Roboute” tactic, given that GW is slowly rolling out updates for each of the four Chaos gods while marginalizing Chaos Undivided Because GW realizes Primarchs= Hype+Dollars, expect them to bring in a loyalist Primarch to balance out the two (or maybe three) chaotic ones. Expect Corvus or Vulkan.

Let's settle this once and for all. Is it an evil act in DnD to kill humanoid children?

The arguments justifying it seem to be utilitarian in nature.They'll grow up to be evil and hurt people. You'll spare them from slowly starving to death

But it's almost impossible to justify it from a deontological perspective.

Heard it got retconned and now, in most cases, the babies are product of political marriage of orc and human barbarian tribes.


In my superior settings, they (most races in fact) don't rape because they have disgust and contempt for the lesser races. They also don't have the urge and it doesn't result into children because different species.



That's idiotic.

Also, eventually she end up murdering a goblin that is literally begging for its life and crying.

Traitors make a conscious effort to betray you, while the ignorant are just like children.



>Heard it got retconned and now, in most cases, the babies are product of political marriage of orc and human barbarian tribes

Right, because in the last couple decades, people became too soft to acknowledge what was pretty much standard practice for armies in enemy territory until a few centuries ago and what's still common in the shithole parts of the world. The world is a cruel place, you can either acknowledge it and take the bad with the good or you can cover your eyes and live in a fantasy. Normalfags will always choose the latter, and they've infested every hobby that was once a refuge for enthusiasts.



It's truly the shittiest of thing because now an half-orc isn't an outcast anymore.

He's just another flavor of race.

Even if you go with the story that your specific half-orc was born of rape you'll be the exception to the rule.

Before it was way better, you saw an half-orc and you knew he was born from war, he was the direct byproduct of orcs invading and destroying a human village.

And hell, you could even make an half-orc who actually came from a loving family and that would've been an unexpected character trait (even though everyone obviously thought you you were the spawn of suffering).


Now you're just +1 to strength -1 to intelligence -2 to charisma or any variation of the above.


Killing is something Good never wants to do, but often has to. A good character should always attempt to make it as quick and painless as possible for both parties. If one must kill for food, do so with respect for life and take only what you need, do not prolong the suffering and do not fuck the corpse.

Autumn- they'll be tracing how they did it via mystical means, plus their whole "mysteries are our thing" schtick means espionage like this is 100% them.

One biker brujah, some ghost chick, a couple scheming bitches and an actually interesting Nosferatu.

This time, we forgo the usual copy-pasta, as the list has grown cluttered with one-off suggestions and series that most don't seem to care for. We should discuss the matter before settling on a format, if we ever even do decide on one. For now, the only criteria that should matter is whether or not a series is good and whether or not is it relevant to /tg/'s incredibly broad and often arbitrary interests.

It's almost as if these faggost are ignoring every live action movie and series from the past few decades, just to act condescending.

Fucking disgusting SJWeebs.



SJWeebs really do deserve a gassing.

Sometimes, i'd like to imagine what would've happened if Japan did decently in WW2 and stayed as an empire. Then if they started making anime, I wonder what it'd be like?



Who knows. It might have become the perfect utopia that only produces series that fulfil everything you specifically wish for or it might not even have gotten a big industrie at all and the mango and animu are reduced to newspaper comics and commercials.

This thread is for discussing various politics in /tg/ hobbies without derailing existing threads or topics. There hasn't been too much news, but the last thread is autosaging, so we may as well have a new one to discuss what little there is and to update anons on any obscure scenarios. It may also serve as a litmus test for the recent influx of cuckchanners and give them an idea of the board's political leanings (although /tg/, of course, is not a single person).

Anyway, there are two pieces of news which are semi-relevant:

>three WotC artists try to enter U.S. for "work discussion," before being detained and deported by ICE

Full story: http://archive.is/byJc3

WotC has yet to comment on the situation. It appears due to an ambiguity in the wording for an ESTA visa waiver - which allows for meetings related to business but not employment - the contractors ran afoul of it, and are thus permanently banned from entering the U.S. with anything less than a full visa.

>beardfat's court battle with his assailant is apparently real enough for him to be in contact with an attorney, and will be happening "soon"

He has so far raised ~$30,000 on his GoFundMe page to help with legal fees. Given how effectively this was astroturfed by convention staff and media, I doubt anything will come of it until the assailant gets the legal book thrown at him. Beardfat claims his attacker has been arrested, although a cursory search of Indianapolis PD arrest reports isn't conclusive.

Anything else you guys want to discuss?

You know how those quantum particles are both in one state and the other, and also nothing of the both? It´s pretty much the same with the Trinity, only there´s only God, and He´s one, but also not, and of Him (or in Him, really it´s complicated), there´s the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and each of them is fully God, but is also not one of the other two. And then you think, well, I know the Father, the angry guy from the Old Testament, and I know the Son, right, the cool guy - but the last one is not only fully man but also fully God! So when did the Son come? Where did He come from? It´s confusing! Is the Father Jehova? I don´t know!

And lastly: Who the fuck is the Holy Spirit? Is He the Church? Is He the love, you know, Agape? I have no fucking clue.

So maybe you now know how that could be confusing for a person knowing only how to listen to the pastor, ask silently for forgiveness and maybe pray for good luck once or twice a year.

How important is it that you know exactly who the Trinity is?



I don´t know, it´s all scholastic stuff. I guess, in the end it´s enough to spread some love and hope in the world and put a little trust in the Son of Man.

Easier said than done, and it requires you to accept condemnent, though.



If another author made an offhand black joke, Wendig would call for the death penalty along with him being banned and removed from everything.

When Wendig talks about how much he hates white people and is proudly by his own admission racist against them, he's somehow shocked that he faces repercussions.



I shudder to think what the FBI would find if they seized Chuck's computer.

I am fairly sure people will want to redirect me to the QTDDTOT thread but I think this deserves its own, since it is pretty alien and it isn't just a random question about a specific system.

Regardless, here's my issue: my group decided to play pokémon in a tabletop setting, we found PTA and decided to try it out.

When we were "testing" our pokémon however (A Vanillite and a Litwick) we found out that the damage was kind of too much, especially since the Vanillite managed to kill the Litwick violently everytime.

We then tested with higher and more varied pokémon and still found out that damage was out of control.

A doubt then emerged, what if the WHOLE system is unbalanced in this way?

Sure, damage can be homebrewed but what about other skills?

What about optimization?

And all that sort of junk.

So before we went into this system, we looked into PTU, however the sheet gave me PTSD from when I was first introduced to 5e.

I looked online and many people seem to prefer PTU... but then I realized, many people prefer 5e instead of AD&D.

Left without many choices, I decide to come here to my turf and ask you this question.

Which one is better?


Is there any better system for a pokémon game?

Let me share a story from my PTU session last week, since mine is so far away from what people usually consider Pokemon.

>the party (A rogue, a knight, a samurai, and a cook) were away from the starting town for several weeks doing adventure

>in one of the dungeons, they discover a map of the villain's plans

>he's been going around sacking villages and the town is next

>they fuck around and take a week getting back

>there's a fucking bandit horde outside the walls

>they fly over on Gyarados and into town and guess that there are around 3000 bandits

<fuck dude this town has 2000 people

<200 of them are strong enough to actually fight

>while the party is telling the town's mayor about this, the bandits are chopping down trees in the forest and setting up tents

>the rogue is pretty sure she spotted a couple of cannons out there too



>she spends and entire day messing around with chemistry and makes a bunch of explosive alchemist's fire out of some poison gunk she looted from some mages a few weeks ago

>they spend half an hour deliberating on what to do

>most of it about whether to throw the vials individually or tie them together for one big bomb

>decide to go with the bomb since it does stupid (6d12+35+15) damage in a 3x3 meter range

>they hop on Gyarados and fly away

>flying low on the approach, they decide to get just shy of throwing range just so they're barely within the range of the archers in the horde

>they get volleyed

>this is actually a Fossil GyaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



Looks nice.

Take Aim's stealth effect seems a bit ridiculous, though. "The next attack cannot miss" would probably be better.



How the fuck did Togepi use Sacred Fire? Metronome?

Also with ISIS and dying Pokemon it sounds surprisingly edgy. Is that just how it was run, or are there actual rules for "maturing" Pokemon with death and what not?



It would be more balanced, I think I'll do that. Thanks for the idea.


>surprisingly edgy

You are like a little baby, one of my players (the samurai) just hit level 9, so he's at the point where he's beheading multiple people every encounter and chopping bandits in half. I like to draw the blood splatters on the map, we giggle every time and it's fun to look at when the battle's over.

yeah well I made an entire system, you should try it out; It's called PTE. Pokemon Tabletop Evolution.

After getting some emails from people who apparently liked my system over PTA and PTU I decided to work on it again and bring it up to date. It's got a long story going with it and originally started as me trying to fix the clunkiness of PTA, my campaign with it lasted 3 years before I finally had something I wanted to release.

This is the only version I have posted to the internet so far.
