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.

On a more serious note, I currently have a green/black Food deck that works surprisingly well. The key is to have a steady token generator which you can then either sacrifice for a minor form of immortality, card advantage or killer giants.

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.

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.

I saw this and decided to try it as well.

I'm creating a homebrew universe for my D&D campaigns. Ask me anything you can think if and I'll give you the answer. If you want to read more about the world before you ask, I'll make some broad points below.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
This universe is being built of a very grand scale. Even I don't have everything locked down yet, but I've got a decent foothold.
There are several planets, and the players will have access to a starship that they will wake up on. After they are woken up, they will quickly realize the ship is failing and they have to fix it. Once they fix the ship, it will be revealed that there is a space station a few light years away(the ship is capable of warp, which I can explain if you'd like. It's not based in real science, but I'm open to suggestions 😊
There are a few star systems that they can choose to go to at first, provided they become able, and each of those will have several worlds. I have a main storyline planned out, but I can't go too much into detail openly as I have players who might be reading this. No spoilers 😉
There will be an earth like world that shares similar history and is a slightly futuristic world by our real world standards, but with many of the races of the d&d world. Sharing the same solar system is a traditional d&d like world with much the same history as cannon forgotten realms stories, with some additions and changes. There are many other worlds as well, but I'm sure those will come up if you're curious.
I've added some elements to the universe, such as a crystalized form of the Weave known as Arcanyte, a sickness brought on by too much exposure to high levels of magic much like radiation, and a last ditch casting method called Soul-Weave Extortion.
There are over 50 playable races for my players, which is probably an overload but I don't care. Most of them are already made and put in legitimate books, or released by Wizards of the Coast but there are some that I've created on my own.
There are many other things, but I'll leave you to decide if you want to know more. Thanks for your time, and I'll try to answer any questions as quickly as possible.

In the Ruins of West Virginia (I began working on this setting in 2017, so dont give me shit because Bethesda stole MY idea dammit) an empire crumbles- that of Vandalia. The reincarnating God-King of Vandalia has yet to be found in his 13th form, and insurrection among the city-states of the Rainforest Kingdom leaves the economy in shambles. In the absence of leadership the ruling authority scrambles to lead their people. Settlements beyond the urban cities are forced to constantly rebuild in the face unrelenting monster and raider attacks. Soon, something is going to give.
As a world building exercise for my tabletop setting, I'd love to do some Q&A and try and find questions I didnt think of and answer them, filling in gaps that players might find. Thanks for any help you might give. Mwah.

I made an item and a background/quest theme for it. Completely unrelated to your super thing, bit why not put the "I made a thing"s in the same place.

The entrance to the beholder's lair is sealed. The entrance seal is a mural depicting various gods having dinner, including the gods of justice, the sea, war, and death. Each god has an empty offering bowl in front of them. The mural is engraved with the words: S E R V E J U S T I C E A N D E N T E R

Placing things in the offering bowls of any god causes a snickering sound to echo through the room, but no other effect. Placing offerings in the offering bowl of the god of justice causes the room to fill with cackling, maniacal laughter.

The door will open when all offering bowls are filled with ice: serve just ice.

You journey deeper into the lair, trapped with more lame riddles, pie ejecting chests, squeaky rubber skeletons(immune to blunt damage), and banana peel lined chutes.

You finally reach the beholder, who dreams of being a comedian. In his possession, he has the cursed Book of PUNishment.

Book of PUNishment:
The wielder may read aloud a joke from the book as an action. Every creature with intelligence 6 or greater that can hear the joke, except the reader, must make a wisdom save with a DC equal to their own intelligence. On a failed save, the creature takes 1d6 psychic damage and 1d4 intelligence damage. Intelligence damage may be restored by a Greater Restoration spell.
If at least one creature succeeds the save, the wielder may not cast spells requiring verbal components or use this ability again for 1d4 turns, but may take all other actions normally: during this time, the wielder is busy explaining the joke.
Once per week, as a full round action, the wielder may cast Hideous Laughter (wisdom save DC 15) on any number of targets within 30 feet.

So undertaking my first major campaign construction, I had always played dungeons and dragons as a kid and a few times as an older adult and thrown together some bs dungeons or stolen something off the interwebs but I'm trying to craft a detailed world this time. What are your strategies, tips , successes stories? Running into logical errors like wanting to put a jungle and a forest on the same landmass and idk when I look at drafts of lager maps they just don't have that "real" feel if that makes any sense.

There was no stack. Each spell had a speed, either sorcery speed, instant speed, or interrupt speed. The only way to respond to a spell was to cast a faster spell.

You cast a sorcery, in response I cast an instant, you can't cast another instant in response to my instant, you gotta bust out an interrupt. If you cast a sorcery and I responded with an interrupt, well, you're fucked, unless you have another interrupt to respond with.

That's how I remember it, but it's been almost 30 years now.

There used to be "the batch". You didn't have to escalate speeds but interrupts stopped stuff happening rather than just got something in first. Once the batch started resolving you couldn't add more cards unlike the stack. I was young and broke so I didn't get into the rules with the same depth over the whole time I played as I managed playing MTGA for 4 weeks. I had to look this shit up.

New system is better. Both simpler and more nuanced.

These are figures for the Warhammer40k game. It's a game played on table top or special tables with terrain or miniature cities. It's a bit cumbersome to learn to play, but it's pretty fun.

Collecting an army, assembling your figures, and painting them is a major part of the hobby.

It generally doesn't, other than ruling that allied ship collisions don't happen because the offending ship goes above/below the other one.

You can still ram enemy ships but only a select few sips would ever want to.
