Holy shit guys has anyone read this?

Its Retard the Cucking.

Its everything the crazies could want in a rpg.

I'm laughing but also filled with pure anguish and depression.

Heres some chose quotes from the drivethru page

When the Signal is up, Receivers lead the charge against battalions of Regime infantry and armor or serve as the People's Shield, protecting mass demonstrations from the brutality of a militarized police force and neo-Nazi hooligans. When the Signal is down, however, Receivers are mere mortals, desperately fleeing from a powerful state that senses their weakness.

Have you ever gone to a tournament and had a bad experience?

I was just listening to a podcast where The 9th Age was banned from future tournaments ran by a big US company because the players would run around posting "fuck/kill KoW" stickers on everything and knocking age of sigmar players models onto the floor and going full "give me my szechuan sauce, picklle reeeeeee" tier autistic. Which sounds like a horror show.

The worst i've ever had some some thuggish yugioh players flipping the table and trying to steal my deck when they thought i wasnt looking and once when filming a vampire game for an advert for a store i was contracted to make some landwhale with two buckets of kfc sharted in the middle of a game and we had to evacuate the building.

What about you? whats the worst tournament experience you have ever had?

Our monthly dose of DM just dropped. What better time to make a new thread?

Dungeon Meshi - Adventurers eating monsters in a dungeon with some mysterious shit going on. Great art. Fun characters.

Hakumei to Mikochi (aka Little Lives in the Forest or Inchling Adventures!) - The comfy slice of life shenanigans of two Inchling girls living in the forest. It's about doing work, having fun, making delicious food, and occasionally helping their necromancer friend with her experiments. Comfy as fuck. Gorgeous art. Full of culture and personality and world-building.

Maou-jou de Oyasumi (aka Sleepy Princess) - Princess captured by a cliche RPG Demon King tries to find the best way to sleep while in the Demon King's castle. Ruins everything.

Goblin Slayer - Mysterious autist partners with other adventurers strictly for the purpose of slaying goblins. It's brutal as shit. Bad ends await everyone.

Kumo desu ga, nani ka? (aka Heresy Spider) - Normal high school girl is reincarnated as a low-level spider in an MMORPG-ish world. She survives through pure strategy and wit, while climbing the ranks and learning new skills.

Somali To Mori No Kami-Sama (Loli & Golem Adventures) - A young child and a Forest-protecting Golem embark on an adventure to find where all the humans went in a world where Monster-folk have taken over.

Golden Kamui - Japanese war veteran who is supposedly unkillable and an Ainu girl get tied up in a crazy scheme to locate a ton of gold by finding pieces of a map tattooed on the bodies of escaped convicts. Oddly educational and full of useful information.

Otoyomegatari (aka A Bride's Story) - Asian girl moves across Asia to marry her shota husband. Absolutely gorgeous art, full of culture and history.

Halflings are even less popular. I guess this comes from the lack of halfling in the Lodoss group. A true shame, since they are pretty much the loli/shota race.

Well this was a bit of a surprise, but honestly interest in 2nd waned when it went from small gangs to small warband militia scale stuff where you needed 30+ models instead of 6.

>"We aren't reinventing the wheel with Malifaux Third Edition. Instead, we're improving gameplay by ironing out a few kinks, streamlining some systems, reducing the number of conditions, and more. All of this is to ensure that the focus is on the fun while still keeping the layers of strategy that we all enjoy. Hiring is also getting a facelift, as models will be hired by Keyword, allowing for more thematic crew building around your (new or existing) Masters. Speaking of Masters, you'll also be able to hire multiple Masters in a single crew. "

>"Models are now hired based on their Keyword, which encourages more thematic Crews while also allowing for abilities that more closely tie thematic models together. Faction models that don’t share a Keyword with their leader can still be hired, albeit at a slight penalty… as can additional Masters. Ever wanted to run two (or more) Masters together on the tabletop? Now you can!"

>"

The bewildering number of Conditions in M2E has been reduced down to a fixed list of 11 Conditions. Many of the Masters that once relied upon Conditions to function now use Tokens that serve as counters for their various abilities, whether that may be causing deadly plagues, spreading salacious slander about your enemies, or causing Post too long.

Archmages and mages in general are only as powerful as they have time to prepare against you.

There are comedy games and a few puzzle games that have players act out secret roles but has anyone ever pulled off a full on The Thing style body snatcher scenario in a game?

Like players act out personal characters to a point but then a GM somehow slips them notes or pulls them aside and says 'now your character has been killed when you split up, you are the monster/one of its drones now' instead?

I imagine with online gaming you could just copy past a PM of some preset up notes or something but i wonder if anyone has any experience for it?

Hidden Role games take a little warming up before a group can get them right. It takes some time for people to recognize each other's tells and their own. In a RPG format, you do have longer to warm up in that way, but it's questionable if the players should know before hand or if it should be revealed mid-game that one of them is the creature.

Well notes are about right, but to make it work you need a method with guaranteed 100% accurate results to confirm if one is a Thing like the blood and fire test to anchor some method to establish trust.

Do any of you have trouble on deciding on what Class to play? Because I sure as hell am, or in my specific case which archetype.

Friend is resurrecting his old pathfinder campaign,and wants to play with new PC's. Well out of the 4 of us i'm the only one that can't pick a class. I wanted to try my hand at a bard as i'm usually a striker of some sort in other games. Thing is I very rarely play support classes.

I looked over the lists on the SRD and none of them are really jumping out at me. Can you help me out?

TL:DR Wanna play a bard, don't know what type, what do?

Problem with that I run in to a lot is people just don't care. They're all going to either make their own thing they planned out ahead of time anyways or spend hours being like 'Well I can play whatever...' so you get a bunch of floating roles because it's what people tend to do.

Only way I've found so far that almost helps deal with it is having a sort of grab bag where everyone picks a race and class, but then they all roll to see which of the picked ones they'd get. Like haha you think you can bring in another fucking human fighter?! Too bad, orc sorcerer! But even then people bitch and moan. Hell I've had a dude say he wanted to leave just because he already planned his character to like level 10 or something.

Have you tried creating a character and then finding the class that would fit it? I sometimes find it more helpful to make a backstory and character traits that would be fun to play in a game, and THEN pick out a class that would help facilitate that.

Why are there always these set Classes or Archetypes?

Why don't more games have freeform classless builds around skills that are progressively improve as they are used?

>>389077

If they're all melee specialists, you'd best go in with something like a shotgun or SMG, where you can close the distance with your team while providing suppressing fire to cover your assault.

Ignore roles. Make a character that's fun and interesting to play.

Should I maybe go Burglar for the class, then? He Did It! does look like a very appropriate ability. Also, I'm more interested in mimmicking the trickery than the hamon - another player's already a punching-based Soldier.

What don't you like about d20? The flat roll distribution is mitigated in FC by spending action dice to activate crits. The math of the system is also pretty highly refined to make it as balance as possible, so changing something so fundamental could throw off a lot.

Biggest thing is probably crits. A lot of mechanics involve crits. 3d6 has 4/5ths the possible results, narrowing how much space could be used for crits. There are a number of options that increase the threat range for attacks and skills, and if you wanted to start out with a roughly 5% threat range comparable to the default 20 you'd want to start with 16-18 (4.63% chance), and from there you get increasing returns if you increase the threat range. 15+ increases by 4.63. 14+ increases by 6.94 from there. 13+ increases by 9.76 from there, and this is a 3-point increase which is pretty doable, resulting in an over 25% chance of threatening a critical. Even if you reduce the chance of crits and start with a range of 18 it's not hard to break the math. Hell just using a weapon with a threat range of 18-20 or 17-20 increases threat range by 2-3. +4 threat range in 3d6, base 16+ is equivalent to about +7 in d20. +5 is equivalent to +9. If you start at threat range at 17 or 18 then this is mitigated but you also nerf crits across the board. Remember that you have to roll a crit and spend an action die to activate it, and action dice are your resource pool for other things as well.

>>389122

If you're not going to focus on socializing or combat then burglar is pretty good at shenanigans. Burglar's main thing in combat is being hard to hit, which is pretty appropriate (especially given Joseph's Plan B). The bonus feats can get you the Misdirection and Mobility feats from the Covert tree.

If you get Repartee Supremacy you can use Staggering Pronouncement to prevent attacks and let you to do any of the things that don't count as attacks. That allows you to, for instance, conceal a number of Handle Item actions to pull off tricks like in this mp4. CoPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Flat distribution is my main issue with d20. You're as likely to get a crit or fumble as any other roll, whereas 3d6 tend towards a more consistent range around 12-13. I personally haven't played fantasy craft, and the activation mechanic does seem to mitigate it a bit, I'm just curious as to how well it does

I think there is something inherently bland and normalfaggish about 3d6 and pool systems.


 No.389168

>>389154

I used to think very similarly, but you have to consider that the d20 consists of several ranges of numbers and also that there is a modifier being attached. Since there's a loosely established power curve, you can set a DC that reflects what should be challenging for a character of a certain level. Additionally, even though the distribution is flat, it's not exactly unweighted, given the way d20 systems work. There's a 5% chance to roll a 1, but a much higher 25% chance that you'll roll in the 8 to 12 range, which is the butter zone for average difficulty, effectively being 10(ish) + Skill + Mod ­± etc

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.

the fans/people being entertained by something are actually in a terrible position to judge something critically. RPG's are all about getting caught up in it, not taking good notes to give back the dm (you can think of all the shit we argue about as fans here and how nothing gets done because of this. This is why good playtesters are rare).

I don't know what the fuck you call it, but this seems to be some kind of natural in-built problem with a lot of people. You ask them what they want, and even if they do want something, they'll say they don't know. You ask them for feedback and they give you nothing.

I tried multiple times to pressure my friends, men and women I've known for over a decade, what kind of game they want to play in. What kind of campaign or theme of game.. and they couldn't think of a damned thing. I hate having to twist their arm just to get them to tell me that they want a generic actiony adventure.

Here's a supplement for The Black Hack I made a long time ago. It's not the best written material, but I tried my best to stat the various races and classes out. It's in line with the content of Arena-Morrowind. In addition to having one-three racial features, many of the races can dual-class as a specific combination: I omitted the details, but to dual-class you basically spend a level to acquire the special features of the other class.
