Someone started a new forum for Play by Post rp'ing.
https://dudesdoingshit.boards.net/

I really don't have anything to do with it, but as an OG PBP player from the old days of the net when boards like Ezboard and Proboards and Outlanda were a thing, I'd like to see it grow.

Anyone else used to do play by post? I found it had a unique rhythm to it, beyond in-person, or realtime text or voicechat campaigns. A post became short prose, the daily rhythm became a ritual, you began to live in the setting, composing the next line, the next action through the day.

I had some great experiences RPing on boards and I really want to bring that back.

Give me your edgiest names for an evil PC organization in an evil campaign.

Our group's designated murderhobo edgelord said my ideas ("the invisible claw", "malice", "The League of Bandits") were lame. I'm not naturally an evil person but I wanna try to play an evil character.

Hijacking this thread for fun ideas for my desert trade kingdom.
So Arad is a dude who freed a djinn and got wishes. He wished for a kingdom and prosperity. The djinn poofed up a kingdom, people, and fields at the edge of the desert and said it would prosper as long as a descendant of Arad held the throne. All princes were named Arad and each king became notable. Arad 1 wished the kingdom. 2 diverted a river for irrigation and safety. 3 built the city walls high, with hanging gardens. 4 made peace with a blue dragon who makes oasies in the harsh desert in return for tribute. 5 made the first trans-desert trade route, bringing great wealth. 6 started a great college of medicine, and so on and so on.
I have no more ideas for further Arads, and the current Arad is desparate to find a destiny and leave his mark. My inspiration runs dry and I have no hooks for the Arad dynasty. One of my players is also seeking destiny.

D&D textwall sperg here. Got an idea, well two variants. If your players want to all be part of the royal guard/army they can go from soldiers to the king's trusted men. You'll need player buy in to be heroic heroes to some extent though.

Few ideas. Presumably the kingdom has problems and the wisdom of the chosen kings and their desire to do well means destiny doesn't do the heavy lifting. Have the players brought from wherever (unless they agree to all be members of the royal army or whatever) as mercenaries to assist with some goblins or something as part of a task force, have it go a bit wrong but the players kill more than their share and it works out alright. Now they're trusted by the king so he gives them a royal charter (or just more missions) to act as mercs in his territory so now they can make some good money helping people.

Spend the low levels having them do odd tasks to help the kingdom, but it's world and rep building. Have a few hints and lay down hooks. Have each adventure reveal a bit, that the kingdom is mostly happy but some people are bad news. At some point have them befriend a streetwise orphan girl. As guards they earn more trust as mercs they earn more repute. During these adventures as well as exploring the kingdom, culture, gods, reveal that there is some discontent among the greedy nobles/merchants who all want more, that there is a small criminal underbelly, and that while it's stable the bottom rungs of society do enjoy very little of the prosperity, make sure they understand the genie's wish. Then have the king murdered, if the players are guards have them go somewhere to get an item key to his legacy, perhaps he has found a rumour of a wizard's pair and the wizard created a decanter of endless water, so he wants to find the plans and use the magic to increase the water available to his people. Something like that. The wish is now fucked. The nobles squabble and the guards go without direction, crises like bandit raids are poorly answered and the guard morale drops, crime rises etc. The nobles cut the blue dragons a better deal and now it's an ancient dragon with a family helping it. The players can fight fires but after a few weeks it's apparent they can't save the town. Arad's head gets destroyed so only a true res will bring him back and there's a handful of people world wide who can do that. Have any that are nearby get bought out or have to flee a swarm of blue dragons.

But there is hope. If the players think to contact other plane or something don't hide this from them. If they don't, have a priest come to them as their best chance. The king has a living descendent. A few generations ago the king at the time sired a bastard. This bastard is a poor person the players met and befriended (my advice, have them meet a few people with qualities you'd want in a ruler whose next impact will be to look after the poor. Then when they take to one, that's the one who'll be the heir. What I'm saying is don't make an heir and risk the players not taking to them, but once they take to an NPC, make them the heir. They can then become the next Arad the kingdom needs, bringing a new era of wealth and stability.

So now the players need to protect their heir, perhaps shortly after they find them there's a leak and they need to smuggle them to safety then they need to remove the enemy and put the heir in charge, perhaps find records or proof or maybe a few high ranking priests will be enough. Saving the kingdom makes this great destiny easy to apply. Depends on the class and character. I mean maybe the character could be the heir or maybe they end up marrying the queen/king. You could do all sorts of class specific stuff, as a cleric they bring glory to their god and maybe revive or reform their church for the better, as a rogue maybe they plunder the dragon's hordes or set up a benevolent (or profitable) spy agency, works for a bard though maybe they just compile the tale of the events that happened and it becomes a favourite world wide, the wizard could rediscover or actually complete the previous wizard's work or adapt it and allow the desert kingdom to grow.

The middle of the campaign then becomes a fairly dynamic struggle as the nobles solidify their plans and the players get strong enough to start pushing back. Give the villains plans and goals that will progress and th…

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.

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.

Sup /tg/

Been on disability a few months now and boredom is driving me crazy so I decided to start with 40k.

My experience in tactics is none. I just kind of chose the faction that appealed to me most, that faction being Emperor's Children.

Can anyone here provide some assistance in what to buy next to round out the randomness of my forces. There's a local 40k/Warhammer club in town and when I show up I'd like to have an army that is somewhat balanced enough to have a snowballs chance in hell at winning some point in the future.

If anyone is asking why Slaanesh it's simply our commonality, intersexualty.

I was just released from prison, and I have some interesting news to report. It turns out that A.) a lot of the guys in there are big fans of tabletop RPGs, and B.) any sort of dice are typically considered contraband (I guess because they are associated with gambling?) and are very hard to come by.

So I started thinking about other possible randomization methods. Although dice are banned, for some reason playing cards are always allowed.

So my question is: are there any robust RPG systems out there that use playing cards? And, if not,0do you have any suggestions for how to create such a system?

I forgot another randomization method I have heard about from friends in prison. Spinners. Like the kind from a kid's board game. Most prisons permit them. Get a piece of cardboard or paper, draw a circle, partition the circle and write your numbers. Take another piece of paper and a paperclip, or a rock and a pencil, whatever you have on hand, to make an indicator and a base to swivel on.

Use a bag or some other container with tokens for every outcome. Relatively easy to make with some paper or cardboard and a ruler (to make even sized tokens).

The Arkham Horror cardgame uses this system and it works pretty well. Especially because you can customize the difficulty by removing/adding certain tokens.

Post any and all things valkyrie and lich related. Campaign ideas, adventure hooks, images, module suggestions, spells or magic items. It is all welcome and wanted.

It's one of those subjective things that varies with setting and edition. It's actually one of those things that's best hashed out in a session 0 because the players will invariably end up debating something that's actually known by their characters. If it's not known then tell them "no one's checked" though given the existence of several divination spells and deities someone has checked.

So lich ideas:

If you were doing 5th I'd say do TOA. But there's tonnes of classic liches. Most liches are unethical scholars not megalomaniacs though so while they tread on mortals they do so to achieve something. Bear that in mind. They are geniuses above and beyond human levels of intellect. Not much beyond but enough that they're cleverer than you. When running a creature like that you're not going to be able to employ tactics at their level. Metagame a little. Not a lot, don't DM vs Players it but this guy is smarter than you and you need a leg up to get on his level. probably more.

Don't hard cheat and build a perfect counter to what your players turn up with on the day unless they lay it all for him to see. If he has scouts or spies and any lived after seeing the party in action then he'll know their class based on their abilities (assuming they used some signature abilities) and equipment. So he'll know what their best and worst saves are likely to be (combined with their obvious wit, speed, build whatever) he won't necessarily get it perfect but he should at least be countering their class. If he doesn't do that after a turn or two he should figure it out. He can't read their character sheets but he will know anything they've let his network know about and he'll have a good idea what to expect. Don't have him fall for stupid shit. He'll have friends, make sure he has a strategy of some sort.

His lair will be defensible, the terrain will have more problems for players to manage than opportunities. He won't fight them in the throne room unless he funnels them into a narrow entrance and makes them run up a slope (and more). The players will have to think about how to overcome this or whether to power through. He'll have cover where it suits him and maybe some other hazards which are aimed in such a way that they hurt attackers and won't put him in danger unless he ends up out of position a long way.

If all else fails have a couple of crazy but likely gambits. I made an elder orb who had several abilities that would conveniently be exactly where the players when if they triggered. He just knew that he'd end up facing enemies there, he'd done the maths. Don't overuse it, and remember to account for it like any other attack when you do. He had one use of that and several other gambits. He is smarter than you. I was honest with my players when I sprung that what I was doing and that also that particular trick only happens once in this fight. It wasn't a gotcha, it was more like a spell or ability.

Speaking of network, while he won't run an empire he's causing trouble enough the players come for him so he needs to be up to something. He'll have a few trusted hirelings who deal with other mortals as his lieutenants (maybe corrupt gang, maybe he's even quite civil with librarians who give him access to their tomes) and maybe a few less conventional pets and allies, devils or demons of Orcus, lesser undead, constructs, monstrosities, maybe lesser dragons, etc. He wants knowledge or power for it's own end so he will have spies. He won't have a national network but a few relatively autonomous and reliable (and smart) allies and if the players ping his radar he'll probably have them observe before he acts. Maybe let the players have a chance to catch one or more of the spies. He will also use divination and scry to some extent.

In that case he'll play defensive while he scopes them. If he knows they're coming he will have memorised a good spell list for them and prepared a magic item or trap or two. Maybe even spring a simulacrum on them.

The lich isn't super threatened if his phylactery is safe so he will probably engage the players on his terms once they start to be a real threat. The final fight is when he'll throw everything at them including minions. But remember he has little to fear even if he dies, unless he has reason t…
