I just bought a used laptop off eBay. The user account was locked, but I managed to get it open. The HD is 99% empty, but there are a series of photos and notes. I'm going to dump them here as I find them.

Or: An impromptu campaign setting design thread, as created by a folder in a file dump I forgot existed.

There is no note for this picture. Just the filename "The Professor". The other filenames correspond to headings in a text file.

Not popular enough, if you ask me. I remember after years of playing fantasy games I really started yearning for something more realistic or at least modern. Unfortunately I had one asshole in the group who couldn't ever part with his dumb fucking self-insert elf.

So we've had Old Spice with the "Gentleman" class (https://twitter.com/oldspice/status/961362988019064832) and we've had Wendy's recently introduce "Feast Of Legends" at NYCC which is an entire ruleset of its own and a clear continuation of sassy Wendy's lashing out at other fast food franchises. (https://www.feastoflegends.com/)

Am I missing any? What do you think about the backlash of people crying about sexist terms or bitching about it being publicity stunts?

This weekend my player had to make a listen check to see if she could hear the other player have sex. Later, a player was jacking off in the street and I had some guards tackle him, but let him roll for initiative to see if he could cum on them first. What fun rolls have you had in dnd?

What are some books, wikis, lore, stories, games, documentations, whatever about sorcery, wizards and all that is magic?
I'm interested in all kinds of magic schools, systems and spells.

Dominions 4, Stone Soup, DnD and Mtg are all examples of fantastic spells and the magic behind them.

Try Abalone! The rules are dead simple, but the strategy is chess meets sumo wrestling. Basically your goal is to push the other player's pieces off of the board, but you can only move them by pushing a longer chain than they are defending with.

For a non-strategy game, Suspend is an amazing balancing game for when you are burnt out on Jenga, and is pretty much just better in every way. You can play conservatively to get rid of your own pieces, or dangerously to try to force your opponent to make an error and knock down the stack

>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.

We just entered the Tomb of Annihilation. Were still the same characters that started the adventure.
We did lose our second cleric and our Paladin because of real life.
Our group is:
Dwarven Kensai Monk
'Light Elf Light Domain Cleric of Lathander
Red Dragonborn Redemption Paladin
Human Lore Bard/Rogue
Eldarin Abjuration Wizard

I'm the player with the high stat rolls but I've been using stuff to buff my party and the occasional Fireball when needed.
Wish us luck.

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.

I had my players break a loop someone else got stuck in. They ended up wrecking a pit fiend at level 15.

Now I just chuck crazy encounters at them. My imagination and ability to manage the enemies becomes my limit and it just challenges them. You have so many tools. My players have an understanding that if they use bullshit so will I so it stops the arms race. And it's the most fun I've had as a DM in ages. I go nuts and let my creativity be the main limit. I recently declined to throw a kraken at them not because they can't handle it (they probably can) but because it'd need worthy minions and I think a kraken priest and 2 elementals and 20 cultists thrown in might have been too much. They're 17 and the wizard has meteor swarm so that's probably not true now.

Anyway last session I had them do a sort of gameshow fight sequence for a ring of wishes with a snarky sphinx "host". They created a paradox with the pheonix egg (the myrmodon with hold monster/maelstrom made them laugh too), fought waves of acid immune creatures (including yugiloth and a black dragon which made the paladin shit himself a bit) as acid dispensers burst out the ground, fought a huge warm of blood suckers (but no vampires as they expected) and a horde of spectres, wraiths and spirit trolls (can all go through walls) in a maze. Except the maze was an illusion anyway and they could have also just gone through the walls.

Next: Ancient dragon, massive research facility. I've written most of it but I need to work out how the engineering wing will work. The engineers have been tasked with creating tools that can be distributed in large quantity to some of their soldiers to help combat the main threat to the enemy army the party. Not all the inventions will be complete or viable for copying as that'd be game breaking but these guys are going to be set up to take the edge off their strengths. Having to balance narrative world breaking repurcussions "this is something grunts could use" and challenge is going to be hard. Working on it.

Seriously, I dont want you to get disappointed. The dev can talk all that he wants on the Q&A about building a story and uniqueness but in the end every Kickstarter that I know had shallow gameplay that still needed a lot of testing and flashy miniatures that were there to distract from that.

If youre into painting your figs, I could see it work out well enough for you to sink time into this, otherwise prepare to get your order in a year (best case) when you will have already forgotten about this stuff and realize that it doesnt play out half as awesome as what they sold you on.

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.

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.
