Starting a tabletop gaming crew at my work. Looking into World of Darkness for our first game, most likely Werewolf, because who doesn't fucking love werewolfs right?!

Which system is more preferable? Foresaken or Apocalypse?
Which is more streamlined?

You need to develop a committment to a character and an investment in the setting. Like having a wood etching of the garou's marks that you carved yourself, made out of polished wood. I'm not sure about say, laquer, but turtle wax or something maybe. (Like the kind people use for their cars)

The point is, you need things like props, funny voices, strange modes of speech. You need things like music to produce the atmosphere but it needs to be ambient, sort of hidden in the background.

I used to like bands that contained a lot of political lyrics, but I realized that they are immersion breaking at the table, people are too busy listening to the lyrics and the rythyms. They are either getting too into it or its turning them off.

Anyone up for a game? Or maybe the modern internet version as that works quite well despite using "the tubes" instead of "the tube". Anyone up for a round of "420chan"?

The following house rules would be in play.

>Home is 420chan
>You can take one move per day or two on a friday if you're in at home but no double posts
>Commentary and historical significance of moves encouraged
>Search engines are not wild, no deep web, one proxy per game allowed

Anyone up for a few games? Start us us off somewhere distant please.

meant to say, right now i'm just starting out at low stakes tournaments (<$100 buy in). I've done well 4 times out of roughly 30-40 attempts so i'm far from a winning player (got 1st once, cashed another time and had 2 final tables). Working on my game by reading up, playing some home games, and trying to spot my weaknesses.

Not really comfortable shelling out a $300-$500 buyin for 1/3 or 2/5 NL cash game at a casino so I'll probably be a tourny player for a while. Really hoping online poker gets legalized in washington but it doesnt seem like it'll happen any time soon.

How is your game?

I'd suggest learning short stacking, if you can buy in for 25BB or less you could build roll on those cash games fairly easily, especially if people buyin big and are loose.

As for me still playing 5nl, on a breakeven period atm, trying to study and grind through it.

Agreed, but I do think there are some work arounds. I mean, you don't technically need the fancy $40 model of a hover tank to say its a hover tank, it just looks cool. Then one can probably pirate the rule set and go to the races.

I do think that the 'indy' boardgame scene is in good shape right now, the model of 'building' something given a restriction then battling it out could work. There is a deck building game called dominion which has melded that mechanic pretty well but it doesn't have what you were talking about (a point bank which you use to purchase an 'army').

If you are good at graphic design and using software, I think it would be sweet to design a game like that and see if kick starter will help you to market. Plenty of games have started out that way

IDK whether to put this on the Pokemon forum or here; but since it's being devved as a tabletop game (Albeit one stuck on Valve Time), I might as well ask.

If you don't know about it, it's basically a goofy Pokemon-meets-90s-whimsyedge-type monster battling setting; with a lot of great creature designs; that this dude's been working on for over a decade and of which I've been a huge fan of for ages.

You can find the bestary here: http://bogleech.com/mortasheen.htm
And a basic what's-going-on-in-the-setting world guide here; which I compiled from a bunch o old posts on the Facebook of the TTRPG company: https://pastebin.com/dB2tfZeH

This was probably the right place.

I get the vibe the guy has ideas but it'll probably never become a game because he's got this creepy (but also slightly darkly humourous) world full of hideous monsters in his head but I suspect he spends more time dreaming up new monsters than trying to make mechanics which are adaptable and deep enough to do the variety justice without being an enormous clunky clusterfuck.

Well, actually he's not the one devving the mechanics of the TTRPG; it's a different (Again; small and with day jobs; hence why it's taking so long) team called Cat Powered Raygun studios; and they're not gonna have all the monsters from Day 1 to avoid that kinda clusterfuck . He's mainly doing the art n setting stuff; which he's mentioned actually doing some updates to recently for the pics he thinks he coulda done better.

Tho, dude has done game design before; he's got a small scavenger-hunt-y IRL game on his site called Homunculus Nightmare and has a simple combat system for his webcomic Awful Hospital, I trust he knows what he's doing.

The only reference to how the mechanics actually work is that they aren't publishing the character sheet. I am very cynical but I do hope they publish it because this sounds like it's part pokemon, part paranoia and some "Build your own shit" thrown in.

Being the DnD guy of the group

I recently got a group of my friends interested in playing D&D for the first time. Since i'm the one with the most experience it was kind of expected that I be the DM for the game. I have zero experience running a full game. The world building and story telling part don't cause me concern as much as the numbers part. Someone is going to ask "Can I shoot that guy directly in the eye with my arrow?" and it's going to take 15 minutes for me to look up the specific rule that applies.

Making combat encounters that have adequate xp rewards for players to level often enough worries me.

Is it all really a matter of making sure each player does something in each sort of encounter and giving them a predetermined amount of xp for each night or should the obtaining of xp be purely dictated by the value charts in the book and how many enemies they defeat.

Most situations are dealt with by rolling a d20 and adding a pertinent stat but how are the Difficulty Classes set? Is that purely up to the DM's judgment or is there something in the books for most general situations.

I'm probably going to run 5e but i'm interested in Pathfinder. I only really have experience with 3.5. Does anyone have any good resources or cheatsheets for helping me run this campaign as painlessly as possible? I really want to keep it RP heavy with only the occasional combat encounter to punctuate moments in the story or their adventures.
Halp.

I was the dwarf guy though I think my IP changes sometimes

My group all bailed at the last possible second and were unavailable for ages after. One or two were more into it and one or two have always been flaky as fuck. I burned everything made a new group, we don't have many games because a couple of the younger players are less available but everyone turns up when they say they will and doesn't cancel on the day. I played a bit of dark heresy with most of the previous group and session 1 had 1 player literally drop out on the day, it was a bitch to get to and I'd stressed out getting there in a week when my grandmother had died and I had an interview the next day.

So anyway I am not playing with those people. My current group treats my time like it matters.

So the young ins in my current group and the oldest of my previous group are the limiting factor. I have a friend who plays weekly with a bunch of people his/our age ie 30ish and I envy that. But at least my sessions happen and so far I've not had all but 2 people drop out on the day. If I could find another more available player I'd like to talk one of the other guys in my group into DMing and running a party of 3 more often, because once a month is good and all but a) not that much and b) i want to be a player at some point.

as long as they have masterpieces, EV is gonna go down. stores are gonna crack tons of packs to try and get a shiny Chalice or something, and that's going to flood the market with all the good rares and uncommons. this is good if you play constructed, but sucks if you draft a lot (unless you're so lucky that you open a masterpiece or two yourself)...

I did 2HG with my GF. we went 3-1. I had a RB aggro deck and she had a WG midrange deck. we didn't open anything crazy either, but you can rack up wins in sealed with just a smooth curve.
