PC had a bad experiences at today's sessions.
  • Slipped and crashed on a wooden bed frame.
  • Knocked a tray over and it broke on the concrete floor.
  • Dropped a ladle of soup at the dining table with the king.
All minor things but it added up. Damn the dice! Last time I have a low dex PC.

Hey guys I'm making a futuristic campaign using FASERIP, I'm creating characters and stuff but finding it hard to locate super hero/villain pictures for the npcs. Filtering through different sites is not very productive, so I'm wondering if anyone has any good tools/sites/ways to acquire these.

PCs are freaks, did you forget that? Class levels are for freaks only. Only a freak can take levels in fighter, cleric, or wizard. Commoners get levels in soldier, acolyte, and adept. Only a freak can be 6 standard deviations from the mean. Each stat point is roughly equivalent to a standard deviation.

Let's take IQ and map it to intelligence for example. The average is 10 int or 100 iq. The PHB and monster manuals require an int of 6 in order to speak and understand a language. A 60 IQ person can maybe tell you they are hungry, or distinguish a cat from a dog. An 8 int character is dumb, and an 80 IQ person is the same; they probably were in the slow and remedial classes, or barely scraped by with low Cs and Ds in every class. A 110 IQ person is smart, and a 120 IQ person is a genius. Less than 2% of all people have >120 iq

Following the same mapping, strongmen and top athletes would be physical geniuses, 6 strength would be anorexics and cripples. And carry weight/encumberence is completely different from raw strength. Anyone who climbs mountains, or hikes, or runs marathons can tell you that a single pound is significant. 10 extra pounds in your rucksack as you march 20 miles is a nightmare. Climbers and hikers look to reduce GRAMS on their gear, because every bit matters. Soldiers argue about who will carry the machine gun, which is ~15lbs heavier than a standard rifle, and is considered to be a massive burden, so much so that machine guns are a 2man crew: one strong as fuck guy to carry the 15lb gun, and another strong guy to carry the ammo.

Also look at the effect of encumberence: fatigue. If you sit at a weight bench, you might be able to pump out infinite reps at weight Y, which will be lower than your maximum lift X, but at Y+10 you'll start slowing down eventually and then won't be able to continue. In order to be able to do infinite reps at Y+10, you will need to become much stronger than X+10.

>A 110 IQ person is smart, and a 120 IQ person is a genius. Less than 2% of all people have
no. 15 IQ is one standard deviation. The IQ to int mapping works pretty well.Slap a 0 on the end and it works well. But then you realise that actually 120 is actually where you start to notice "this guy is kind of smart". And 12 is where the person is discernably smarter to the point where it makes a measurable difference. If you were right then someone mechanically no different (10 and 11) are obviously measurable in real life. Someone with an INT of 19 is 6 standard deviations above the norm.

Physical stats are the same. An olympic athlete is several standard deviations out. A pound might be the difference for a marathon runner but combat isn't marathon running and they aren't strength characters. Top long distance runners aren't just lean, they have little elastic bands on their arms. But melee combat isn't that. It's short (1 minute usually) bursts of action with lots of walking 3mph in between.

Veterans have 14 strength and the guards of cities have units of them. You need 15 strength to wear plate without your combat effectiveness reduced. So you're saying that basically no one ever wore plate? Firefighters wear 60lbs of gear. Soldiers carry body armour, rations and stuff. By core rules each point of str increases your unencumbered carry by 5 pounds so that machine gunner is 3 points higher. Lifting weights is very different from encumbrance too. Being able to lift 10 pounds more doesn't mean carrying 10 pounds more. It makes a little difference.

You're right about it being a good way to teach players not to be retards though actually. I didn't think about it that way. I'm not used to people being that dumb to be honest. I mean the couple of times they've been close to that stupid they've not forgotten the results.

Though if someone plays a tiefling and says "I just want to be a devil person" fine, if they want racism and then go around insulting everyone as the pariah people though... surely that'd have consequences too.

Most people like something somewhere between a farce that derails within minutes and epic fantasy like a tabletop version of baldur's gate but there where point varies though, just because someone sits slightly more "seriousward" than you it doesn't mean they're an anal rules stickler (that's my job I try not to take it to the table too much). The rules are useful as framework to give the story cohesion and tension, they are flexible. The unwritten rules like tone (seriousness, how coddling or vindictive the DM is, what themes are and aren't okay) are the most important and they're not the ones in the book anyway.

Now that varies from table to table. But at the end of the day if I spend ages negotiating schedules I think of the 6 of us 3 work 9 to 5s but that's about to drop to 2 in 5 because life to spend quality time with a group of my friends of course I'm going to take it seriously.

Prepare yourself for the "Wood for Sheep" joke being repeated ad nauseum.
Thomas Hommleham - Wed, 18 Sep 2019 14:22:32 EST KzTcv9Wu No.29323 Reply

Simple stuff, ALWAYS pick the regions with the highest amount of possible die combinations, best case 8, but also 10 instead of 3. If your choice is between regions with equal "luck", pick mountain regions then grain and then sheep, fuck wood or that mud stuff. You´ll need rocks and grain to get castles early so you loot more over the long haul and sheep to get those extra cards which have VERY handy benefits for you most of the time.

Never go for coastal regions or desert border unless the coastal one nets you 2 for 1 exchange on your primary loot basis. If you can get something beneficial by trading one ressource, go for it and immediatly get that stuff, you don´t want a full hand and then lose half when someone rolls a 7 and you´ve just been stockpiling your shit.

tl;dr get starting settlements on good numbers, preferably rock and grain, rest hardly matters, catan, suprisingly enough, is a very mathsy game

Also try the Inca standalone next time, much better balance.

On the contrary, in LARP there are plenty of people (or dragged-along spouses) who take up the healer role to either A) actually do shit without needing a foam weapon or B) feel important as everyone who learns of their skills flocks to them like hungry pigeons to stale bread.

But potions? Too complicated for the organisers/GMs to keep track off for common use so they're put behind a wall of tasks you have to do and impossibly hard to find/get ingredients.

That said, there are a thousand reasons why I fucking loathe LARP and that's one of them.

Hey guys I'm brainstorming ideas for an upcoming VTM game and figured I'd see what other people thought.
It's set in 1860s Wilmington NC, just before the American Civil War and I plan to run it through to 1865 after the war ends.
The players will be a newly shovelheaded pack of Sabbat created to aid in the capture of the currently Cam city, then prevent it from being retaken.
I've looked up IRL timeline stuff for the area and fairly close maps. I also looked up Cannon cWoD timelines to get as much background fluff as possible.

If you have any ideas let me know.

Saw a couple of people play it and saw plenty of reviews. Seems pretty fun and faithful to the games but not worth the current price unless of course you love DS and the way this game translates them.

The one thing the boardgame lacks is the epic and grand feel of the overall world. It's like playing a stand-alone area of the video games.
