I've been enjoying my time as an early player in DnD (4E ,expecting rage) ,but I'd like to try my own hand at running a campaign. I've already decided I'd like to go with a small section of the unified setting as I've been been told playing directly from a published modual is not as fun as going with a basic setting and expanding on top of it, and I've always had an interest in vilous and micks creatures( I maintain the vilous mod at the bay12 forum hehe. ). Any advice how to get started?

Regarding DMing 4e:
Read the DMG. Read the other books too, for rules, but especially read the DMG, because that has more good advice on DMing than you'll find here.

On the Unified Setting:
Be aware that the races for the Unified Setting don't really have good 4e stats. If you want to work through them and get that fixed it should be relatively easy to revive interest, though. The current development thread is here:

Plan scenarios, but not a hard order to them. If the players fail to enter the room with the dragon, for example, don't force them in there, and don't discard your ideas. Just save the dragon for another room.

When the players try to second guess you at every step (and they will) give them a few red herrings, things that seem important, but are in fact just distractions.

Once you get their guard down with those, then you can provide a minor detail that doesn't seem important, but turns out to be incredibly important. A feather in the old sailor's boot for instance.

Once you really fool them badly, they will try to second guess you from then on even worse. That's when you introduce secretly timed puzzles. For example when they carefully explore the dungeon without missing anything, they return to the surface to find the village has been sacked while they were checking for traps the third time.

That's your basic starting game. After that, like chess, there's no right way to do things. Mix up the above three or do something else entirely. You'll just have communicated to your players that proper balance of trust and paranoia that will hopefully get them really into it.

of course, don't make the bad things too bad at first otherwise they will think you are just fucking with them and not being serious about it.

No. 22615 ID: a8ba06

Final tally after Paypal donators:

Backers: 77,667
Pledged: $4,163,208

Which means it looks like we have 15 floors in the mega dungeon, and we reached the 4 Million stretch goal which adds live instrumentation for the soundtrack and in-game developer commentary. Also, Chris Avellone is being forced gets the privilege of playing Arcanum, which will be possibly streamed in the near future.

We're Back is kinda bottom of the pile. Granted, Screw-eye was kinda nightmare fuel but everything else about the movie was kinda bad, especially that song. I normally like John Goodman's voice acting too, he was particularly good in Emperor's New Groove.

On list of Dinosaur films I can remember, and just in my own opinion...

1. Jurassic Park
2. Land Before Time
3. You Are Umasou
4. Jurassic Park 3
5. Dinosaur (The Disney CGI film)
6. Jurassic Park 2
7. We're Back
8. Theodore Rex

Granted this does not include television shows. I feel a little bad actually about giving Land Before Time a spot above You Are Delicious, but I guess the art and production values behind Land Before Time give it the edge.

That said, I kind of would be interested in Hollywood doing a remake of Jurassic Park, or at least updating the dinosaur visuals star wars special edition style.Give the utahraptors feathers and actually call them utahraptors and such.

And yes, I know why they didn't call them utahraptors before.

>or at least updating the dinosaur visuals star wars special edition style.

Why the hell would you want this? The Star Wars special editions had lots of unnecessary computer shit that looked completely out of place with the well-done traditional effects.

Jurassic Park used lots of great traditional SF that were supplemented by computers. I think they still look better than a lot of newer films that use CG exclusively.

Also, wasn't Jurassic Park 3 the terrible, terrible PG 13 one?

The only thing to change about the first Jurassic Park if you were going to fuck about with it is to downplay the stupid children. (And even then you can't outright remove them without losing "It's a UNIX system! I know this!" and making IRIX nerds irate.)

Okay, so NDA is lifted and Open Beta is next week.

I've been in the Beta for about two months now and I love how the game is shaping up. We just got a huge graphical update that's changed... a lot of things, for better and worse, but more detailed options are coming soon. The dev log says we can expect a few more mechs in the next month, along with the beginnings of electronic warfare and information warfare. Things are accelerating, it seems.

As things are now, there's a lot of depth to mech design and actual combat. I've been playing with LRM-bait pubbies for too long, though. Let's get a group formed.

'Tis free on Steam, and while the game itself is nothing exciting, for the price of sticking your e-mail in a registration form you can play with a fairly wide lump of free chargen bits. And since I know at least one other person has tried doing quest characters in it, have a Moalla.

No, I couldn't find a way to make her Orel not tiny. The angler fish thing looks even worse. Taken some liberties with the top, too, since although there are a few bustiers they don't really work as part of overalls.

A lot of the textures are pretty fucking stupid like that. I was trying to make a big glowing robot, and there were some neat bits of upper arm armor with glowybits, but if you set the texture on the part to metal (instead of the default non-glossy leather) it doesn't glow any more.

I don't even know what the fuck re: textures in this game half the time.

Note that if you log all the way into your character, the Bonus (rightmost) tab of the in-game C-store will now have one free character slot you can buy for zero points, even for Silver scrubs like me who have never given Cryptic/Atari a single red cent.

Also a partial Gando from a while back I couldn't finish because no checkerboard pattern for clothes or right material shapes.

so i decided i should kick something today

i haven't kicked a puppy in a long while, which is evil and gratifying in itself

but i also have seen a couple pony quests lately, so i need to express my opinion in these terms also

but which to kick... i couldn't decide, so i kicked both

has anyone ever found themselves being undecided lately? it doesn't have to be evil, i'm just an ass

I'm gonna have to ask what you mean by "female looking mech," since I look at stompy mechs (like Battletech) and I don't see gender, I just see actuators, stress points and centre of gravity. I don't see refridgerators or toasters as being "male" or "female" either, so I'm gonna need some help.

How would I recognize a "female-looking" mech if I saw one? (and while I'm here, how would I recognize a "male-looking" mech if I saw one?)

Perhaps the terms we should be using are "feminine/masculine"...though those are also prone to issues of context and culture.

If hips > shoulders then robot = sexy lady.

Would this count?
Also, Buck Angel could do anything he wanted to me. Hell of a sexy guy no matter what the plumbing is. (It probably helps that I'm not gay.)

About the only cool thing about the mod is the cave in mechanic and the prospector's pick, to be honest.

also you need to make a new stronger anvil every time you want to use a better metal. stone only works on tin zinc and bismuth. want copper tools? you gotta build a copper anvil first, then you gotta build a bronze anvil, which you can only do with a copper anvil. then you gotta make a iron anvil, etc etc.

>and forced you to manually shave trees

Having the leaves autobreak when you chopped the tree down caused ridiculous amounts of slowdown apparently, and he's been focusing on other things before fixing this. Which I think is a bad focus because tree shaving is boring.

Anvil Tiers are also just completely stupid.

I like most of the rest of it, though.

treecapitator does it with like, no slowdown at all.

Huh, this sounds really interesting!

Engine Heart is my favorite game that I own a physical copy of but have never had the chance to play.

I wanted to run a game for some friends, but they weren't really interested.

Maybe I'll try to run a quest and use that system for the crunch? I guess robots might be easier for my negative art skills than biological critters...

well they would have more angular so they don't needs much skill.

I'm running RhoQuest at http://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/res/418017.html on the Engine Heart system as a framework.

You need to run an actual campaign on IRC.
