Please stat TCC-Tan using the following system (or just add input).

7-12 are character creation, you start with 5000 points.

IN exchange I will play her and occasionally update everyone on her progress. I'd really rather do it myself, since I AM going to be playing her, but really it would be wrong to not get any input from you guys. I suggest Flying, so she can ride around on a cloud of bongsmoke.

Name: TCC-Tan

Super Moves (0);
Items (0);
Bases (0);
Base stats: 0-5, start with ten points total.

Okay, so my coworkers and I have been considering starting a roleplaying group. It'll probably be 4-6 people including myself. Maybe 2 of these people have prior roleplaying experience. I am not one of them. I have a basic understanding of the underlying systems and goals of a tabletop RPG, but no experience. And I seem to be the only one willing to step into the shoes of the DM. I don't mind this, necessarily, I know it'll be work but I think it could be a lot of fun too.

So we haven't chosen a game yet, I think at the moment we're looking for a more classic DnD style setting. ATM it's between DnD 3.5, DnD 5, and Pathfinder. As DM, I'd like to build my own world, but I'd also like to start off on a few pre-made quests to use the first few sessions to get my own feet wet and get an idea of my player's styles. I have a few ideas for what kind of world I want to build, I think I'd like to keep it generally lighthearted with some obscure references. For example, I think I'd like my characters to find a magical artifact, "the stone of Cecil" which, when used (once per day at most), will play an eery quote from Welcome to Nightvale that I'll select before each session. There will also definitely be a king who insists on being called "The King Formerly Known As The Prince". I'd also like to experiment with dipping into various genres for short story arcs later on, for example maybe a lovecraftian horror arc, so I'd like the rules to be flexible and able to support that kind of thing.

So, I'm looking for suggestions on which game to use, what books/accessories I should grab, and any tips for worldbuilding and DM'ing in general. Can you help me out, /TG/? I present you with a coupon for a free marijuana in return

DM here, check out Critical Role and High Rollers on Youtube, two groups of fun peoples playing DnD 5e and Matt Mercer of critical role is an awesome story teller and voice actor for Blizzard and stuff and they both have some videos on getting started with DMing andRPing in general. Mostly just keep in mind that the goal isnt to "win" the game, there isnt really a "win" you just play. so many insufferable min-maxing "my dude is the best" players that ruin all the fun DONT BE ONE OF THESE. The fun of roleplaying is found in your characters weaknesses not their strengths. also halflings are awesome, lotr hobbits are not the same thing as DnD halflings.

I've actually got a 5th edition campaign off the ground. I'm well out of practicing at the NPC/role playing stuff but the mechanical stuff is super easy to run if you read the DMG stuff on encounter building. I tend to avoid having repeats of the same fight. I also avoid "random encounter tables" I prepare a few encounters that are just there to throw at the players for a given session. Some related to the main plot, some just world building. Don't put stuff you don't actually want the players to encounter. Sure there's hill giants near the starting village, okay but the players don't cross their paths until they are strong enough to not get 1 shot. Or if you want to throw extremely lethal encounters don't trust players to know they can't win. That's relying on metagaming based on knowledge they may not have. Just tell them outright "this thing will destroy you and your characters know it". And make sure the challenge is avoiding it.

As I said I feel my role playing shit is a bit shaky (not awful though because they've not turned into murder hobos but actually solve problems with diplomacy and guile pretty often) but I've had my party on the edge of their seats in quite a few fights. Except the one where they scouted the area, pre planned and essentially using fire and surprise, hearded 12 sleeping bandits into a blender made of cloud of daggers and spike growth spells. I will say that the first few levels are very dangerous for characters so play it safe at first.

I tend to override treasure tables and pick very slowly but your mileage will vary. Remember magic items in 5th edition are precious. No obligatory. My characters will start getting +1 shit around level 5. +3 with another effect is a legendary item because everything is more compressed now. I might give them all a top tier class defining iconic weapon later on but I intend to make it part of a quest which ties into their own back or side stories.

If you've got preconceptions it's important to remember that critical 20s and 1s only apply to combat and there's no critical miss (I personally like 20 always makes a saving throw and 1 always fails but for skill checks I'd advise 20 just being 20 and 1 just being 1). This has the following "awful" effects. Don't make people do checks for stuff unless there's a consequence for failure, or if failure or success are possible. And yeah, I'd say play it straight, the comedy will take care of itself. Or if you do comedy, do it very subtly.
>I'm a fat old wizard and I want to jump to the moon and can do 1 in 20 times without magic
>I'm a master acrobat and want to walk on a 4 inch wide balance beam indoors with no distractions, wind or items weighing me down but will fall off about once per 2 minutes.

The lack of critical miss means the following isn't applicable
>wizard can barely use a sword, will drop his sword on his foot once per 2 minutes
>level 20 fighter, pinnacle of martial prowess, stabs own eye every 30 seconds due to higher attack rate.

If you insist on critical misses make it only applicable on a 1 if all other attacks also miss, or some shit that makes it less likely for martial characters with multiple attacks to crit miss. This is to avoid turning weapon master fighters into jokes.

The way the game is balanced (something called bounded accuracy. In 3.5 or 4th you end up needing to beat 35 or 40 to hit stuff by high levels, in 5th edition instead of rolling a D20 and adding 30 to the roll to beat 40, by level 20 you might add 12 and be trying to beat 22) also means weaker monsters are more dangerous so mixed power enemy groups works a lot better. Having an orc warboss be hugely more powerful than his minions doesn't mean a party who can handle him find having 6 of his dudes with him essentially akin to fighting a lion and it's fleas any more.

I'm presently working on a few mini dungeons to run into during other adventures.

  • no religion/politics/fate/customs etc topics that you have to know to play the game

>What is the longest running campaign you've ever played in. How big was the group, how often did you meet?

I'm currently in my longest running campaign. We have 7 players, a single GM, we meet once a week, and we've been going for just shy of a year.

>What is your most played Tabletop RPG

4th edition if we're going by number of campaigns, but total hours in the chair, I'd have to say 3rd edition.

>What is your favorite Tabletop RPG and Why?

I'm rather attached to D&D 3.x. It's what I started with and I have something of a bias towards it built from familiarity.

>When was the last time you gamed?

Last week.
>Are you a DM/GM or have you only been a player
I am currently a DM. I used to be a player, but now I get requests to run, and have inspired others to start trying to run their own games.

>What is your longest running Player Character? Did they die or retire or do they still live?

The majority of my characters have been for pre-built campaigns, so many of them have had something of a time limit. Some of them have died, some of them retired, some of the campaigns just fizzled out, and I was kicked out of one group.

>Finally, who many different Tabletop RPGs have you played?

Most editions of D&D, Call of Cthulhu, Robotech, Inquisitor (it kind of counts), GURPS, Vampire: the Masquerade, Dread, Star Wars: Saga Edition, Shadowrun 3rd edition

>What is the longest running campaign you've ever played in. How big was the group, how often did you meet?

Three years, three core players, three who weren't always there, done two of those, as a DM then as a PC.

>What is your most played Tabletop RPG

Something we called AD&D 2 but I didn't actually know the rules and just winged everything, as I was 12 and nobody else had an RPG book.

>What is your favorite Tabletop RPG and Why?

Depends. I love Lamentations of the Flame Princess. I love Into the Odd. I love Apocalypse World. I love World of Dungeons. And I fucking love Cyberpunk without tying a specific broken system to it. Not necessarily in that order.

>When was the last time you gamed?


>Are you a DM/GM or have you only been a player

I mainly run games as referee, but I also like being a PC.

>What is your longest running Player Character? Did they die or retire or do they still live?

A Black Mage who died four times, the last time killing himself over a vision of his dead apprentice while his best friend betrayed him (before he betrayed said bff, so it was cool and expected). It may not sound like it, but it was the only really "dark" tone in the whole campaign, which was in a very light-hearted and comedy setting. The whole dark magic was to be played for laughs.

>Finally, who many different Tabletop RPGs have you played?

AD&D 2, Earthdawn, INS/MV, COPS, Polaris, Beloved, HQRPG, Cyberpunk 2020, Cyberpunk 2013, Cyberpunk 3.0, Shadowrun 2e, Shadowrun 1e, World of Dungeons, World of Shadows, Apocalypse World, Dungeon World, Pathfinder, D&D 5e, LotFP, B/X, OD&D (74), Z-Corps, about four different homebrews, Call of Cthulhu, Cthulhu Dark, FATE, Warhammer FRP 2E, Stars Without Number, something we called "RPG Exquis" during pizza breaks, Vampire the Masquerade, Mage the Ascension, Cadwallon, The Dark Eye/Naheulbeuk, not in that order.

So that's about 33 different games in 7 years of gaming.

So I've been getting into tabletop RPGs over the past year or so. 5e, a lot of the Palladium books at the behest of a friend. I picked up Call of Cthulhu recently. I've ALWAYS been interested in the World of Darkness Vampire setting, but for awhile I wasn't sure which version to get: Masquerade or Requiem. After weighing the pros and cons and studying both, I made the plunge and ordered an old Masquerade hardcover. Requiem's setting and characters didn't grab me as immediately as Masquerade's did.

Did I make a mistake? What's the general consensus on these systems? Which do you prefer? Which have you had the better experiences with?

I'd recommend making it a house rule that 7s count as successes along with with 8s, 9s, and 10s. the few WoD games I've played always petered out due to players getting discouraged from pretty much never rolling success from a large dice pool. I wouldn't go so far as the Exalted system where 10s count as doubles and 1s don't detract successes but that small addition of success on 7s makes the game so much more playable.

I play Chess. I love to play Chess. I sometimes play the electronic Chess against an online opponent but, it's just not the same. I like to play the real, physical game of Chess.

I like being able to sit across the table from someone. To have a good chat, maybe a few drinks, to bullshit with one another and just talk as we try to murder each other with strategy.

I was thinking of just taking a board to a restaurant or bar or park or whatever and just challenging passerby to a game or something. I literally cannot find people who would actually like to spend time to sit down and play a game so I figure I may as well cast the net as wide as possible. But I think I'd come across as a bit of a weirdo. I mean, would you stop to play a game of chess with a guy in a park who offers to share his thermos of coffee with you? (don't worry, I'll bring Styrofoam cups).

I miss the socialization of it all. Online Chess is ok, but I really miss having fun chatting with someone and watching their face as they try to think three moves ahead of me. You miss out on a part of the experience, as wel las the challenge, with online Chess, I feel.

That's it. sorry, just had to get this off my CHESST, I guess.

I have no interest in modern MTG because of power creep. I understand Hasbro wants my money, but no depth or meaning is added to the game anymore. The game doesn't get better by replacing last years +1/+1 artifact with a +2/+2 version this year. It looks as though ridiculous mythic rares like Jace the Faggot are printed only to pull the most money out of players.

The power creep devalues current collections, and discourages all but the most hardcore players from staying involved. By the Scourge expansion, power creep was already out of control. Changing the card borders and inventing Modern was a way to fix that, but instead they just made a more controlled and exacerbated version of it.

For a year or so now, I've been playing variations of familiar types in which all cards printed after 2003 (after Scourge) are banned, as well as the standard banlists. It's great to be able to justify using my older cards, but the biggest advantage is that I don't have to run on Hasbro's money creep treadmill anymore.

It all just reminds me of Ultima Online and the introduction of Age of Shadows, an expansion that doomed the game to a dying existence as a WoW power creep treadmill. Pic related. That's Jerrard of the Closed Dick, a 6/5 for 6 mana with no special abilities, completely useless by today's standards.

Tendrils would make them gain the same amount of life as they lost since you are "them" when you cast it. Although you do get rid of their wincon. What I'd do is start flashbacking all the draw cards in the graveyard like gitaxian probe for some lifeloss until your hand is overstuffed and discard anything useful (assumong they already had a full hand). If the hand is empty I'd jsut do some useless casts and hope for the best. Mindslaver works best agaisnt contorl decks though. just cast the best card and waste all the counterspells on each other

I just watched a VICE documentary on MTG and my curiosity has been piqued. I kinda wanna buy a bulk amount of cards from kijiji but before I do that I want to learn more about the game.

Is there a good beginners forum, or a website that talk about the history of the decks/game and even some YouTube videos?

is it worth getting into this game or is it a dying sport?

If you have an iOS device, get the free magic app. I think it's called magic: duels.

Once you get the hang of the basics, something like forge or xmage could help too. they (for the vast majority of the time) enforce the rules on the card and are completely free to play, so it's like playing a game against an AI.

find your local game store (wizards has a store locator) and call them up and tell them you're a complete beginner and that you want to get into the game. they'll suggest the best time for you to show up to play and have someone show you the ropes. new cards are being released on the weekend of 14 january, and new players are very welcome to these "prerelease events".

on top of that, your local game store will have events every friday night and probably more on top of that.

Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it.
I'll grab that app as well and start playing.
I'm from a very small town, but luckily there is one store that is only open on Fridays that is a place for people to sell/trade/play card games, I'll start there this week. Thanks again.

I "got into" MTG maybe like 2 years ago, after enjoying Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh. I got some "sample deck" things that local game stores give away - ask about it when you go in! You should be two get 2 free 30-card decks, two colours of your choice. I got them thinking I'd play with my girlfriend. Turns out she has no interest in Magic.

I watched all of Walking the Planes and Spellslingers

Tolarian Community College is also a good resource.
I also really like Alpha Investments, but that's a more niche thing and not even really about the player side of Magic. Other Magic youtube channels seem to be all the same, just some guy unedited rambling about competitive stuff. Not for me. There's a cool official podcast by the face of Magic, a cool guy named Mark Rosewater, called "Drive to Work" where he talks about... everything.

Here I am two years later, with maybe 300$ invested in Magic (several preconstructed decks and some accessories) and nobody to play with, and too scared to go to a local game store. Haven't been able to find anybody locally, through the internet. Sometimes I play against myself with my Duel Decks.
The rules are so clunky and outdated, but Wizards refuses to update them. The cards still freakin say 'deckmaster' for goodness' sake. The game could be more popular and improved, and people like my girlfriend could enjoy and play, but the design is 20 years old and barely updated or streamlined. It's too bad that it has to be sperg nerd thing. It could be as casually popular as 52 card decks.
