About a year ago I wanted to make a use out of all the things I've drawn and the setting I've made that's doing nothing but rattling around in my head. So I decided to try and make a ttrpg, and instead of hacking just writing a setting doc for an already existing game or hacking an open source system or something a bit easier I've been Frankensteining this together from a bunch of games mechanics I thought were cool because that seemed like more fun. Very possibley most likely going to be a train wreck, but It's the first game I've made I'm fine with that.

The game is about playing imps on an earth ravaged after heaven and hell went to war and ended up pulling mutually assured destruction on each other. This isn't related to anything else I've done on questden like D3 or Eschatologic other than the fact that the players are all imps, that being said if you like those than you might like this. If I continue to post the details here than I welcome any critique, questions, or comments on the game. I've got a year's worth of stuff down but some of that year was planning, writing, then redoing all of it so it isn't too much. I'll add more details when I have time.

I haven't shared too much of the mechanics I have to many other people so I look forward to seeing what people think and how bad these ideas actually are when you think about them from different angles

I got the idea to start posting here from Sarc

Don't know how well they'd fit with the setting, the idea is that they're from a big family of magic users, but can't use scrolls or spell books normally, and so they have had to improvise.

Angels went mad too. That mutually assured destruction ended with whatever angel's and devils were left alive going mad save the imps. Humans are extinct.

>>11902
Very cool! But yeah that wouldn't really work in the setting since anyone can use a book or scroll, and there's no real way to improvise using one. I love these drawing though.

--Z’anon, Chupian HURON recruiter

The Vaal Gaar Galactic Council reaches across the Third Arm of the galaxy offering protection in exchange for undying obedience. Who they don’t convince, they purge. But you are not alone, traveler; there are millions who rebel their regime. There are pockets of sanctuaries for free people who make their honest living without being in the sights of the Gortian’s Looking Glass. HURON is one of many stations--but it’s the most legendary.
We’re fighters. We’re engineers. We’re medics and scientists. We’re common-folk. We’re merchants. And we’re the free.

--Nor-Nanhaal, Chupian Resistance Founder

Fumigators? Constructors? Assassins? You want them? They’re yours my friend, as long as you cough up enough credits!
--Rio, Ichorynth HURON Merchant

Hello quest. For fun I’m going to try making a HURON TTRPG, based within the Team Port Echo universe (and the titular quest itself, HURON). Feel free to comment and critique the development. I’m reading many core rulebooks from shadowrun to genesys to D&D and Pathfinder, as well as their editions—so you may be familiar with some rules I’ve borrowed.

If you like everything related to the Universe of HURON and Team Port Echo, or just want the latest ramblings and thought process on how I build this ttrpg you can join my discord server: https://discord.gg/XpRctkx

My strategy is to post one concept of the game and leave it open for anyone to pitch in their feedback, suggestions, or a simple ‘looks good to me’ before I’m confident to move on the next topic. Although I fear this thread may see little activity, I may carry discussions in the QuestDen discord as well.

>What is HURON?
HURON TTRPG is foremost a narrative-driven roleplaying game. The players assume the role of mercenaries-for-hire from the titular space station and head off on adventures for credits to get by their day-to-day life. These tasks include but are not limited to: heists, cargo protection, bounty hunting, rescues, or artefact collections. As HURON TTRPG is narrative-driven, there are also chances of combat against the galaxy’s wildlife, space-faring bandits, and armies both accrued by outlaws or under the blessing of high councils. Combat should be quick and thrilling, and every action should affect the outcome of each round. Missions will often have a straight-forward task without the necessity of a convoluted plot.

>DICE POOLS
To move things smoothly whether through fights or tests of skill, I have decided to use pools of six-sided dice. To further increase chances of succeeding a test I’m making each die resulting in a five or six count as a Hit. Under most circumstances rolling a one is not an automatic or critical fail.

Your dice pool for a skill check is equal to your ranks in an allotted skill plus the corresponding attribute.
Take the drive skill for example. Drive is a skill associated with a character’s Agility attribute score. A normal player can drive a vehicle without needing to roll a dice pool, but the success goal differs if they are involved in a pursuit or dodging missiles in a spacecraft.
Typically a standard task only needs one Hit to succeed. A player unskilled for the task may need more than one Hit to pass a test. Some tests may exceed the character’s capability to achieve; at rank 0 everyone may have a basic understanding on how to drive a car but absolutely clueless on piloting a plane—and it could def

Salutations, /tg/. I am currently attempting to create an RPG based on the webcomic Slightly Damned; http://www.sdamned.com/2004/03/03142004/ . I'm currently trying to get the thing finished, polished, and publishable; I have the author's permission to do this, though we've yet to work out all the details of the monies. (Yes, that does have me somewhat worried.)

I am here asking for people to look over the mechanics and make sure that I'm not barking up the wrong tree - or worse, completely ripping off the RPGs I somewhat based this mess on.

If people are even remotely interested in looking over the comic and/or the PDF as it stands, please post in this thread, or sign up for the forums and look for my thread (hint: it's in "Fanstuff" under the SD section). I will post the PDF if/when anyone shows interest.

- A giant fox (size Large) is stalking a deer drinking at a lake. The majority of the fox's body is on the path. If you get within 10 feet of it before it notices you, you can attempt to scare it off; it'll jump away from you three times and then run full-speed.

- As you're camping for the night, a swarm of bats flies through the camp. Investigation finds a cave nearby, and a bear has just laid down inside, scaring the bats. If you back off, the bear ignores you.
(Potentially Violent)

- You see a dilapidated wizard's tower a good 200 feet off to the left of the path; surrounding the area are lots of small, wolf-like creatures with curious tail-ends. The area is spattered with partially-dissolved rocks, vegetation, and ground. If you get too close, the creatures turn out to be magically created rattlesnake-coyote hybrids, and they have learned to spit their poison like acid. The tower contains notes on how the wizard made them in the one book that is quite purposefully preserved - and covered in specks of acid damage.

- As you're camping, a small swarm of moths bigger than your face flutter through. One lands nearby, its wings red and sun-yellow with a big black "eye" in the center of each.

- As you awake the next morning, everything seems to be quite normal, except that after a while you realize that the sky is green instead of blue, and the plants are blue instead of green. As you're packing up camp, you hear something howling through the air; you see a big white sphere surrounded by a purple-pink aura crash onto you like a 200-foot fireball spell. You all wake up in a cold sweat, and everything is back to normal.

After getting banned from various threads for being a dick by trying to make random, nonsensical suggestions that were inadvertently insulting others with prejudice or worse because I didn't understand how wrong or abusive it was, I've decided to try something interesting so I don't get banned from TGCHAN altogether:

I'm going to try putting every random spur-of-the-moment suggestion I have into this thread (in spoiler tags) instead of on regular quests where it may offend others, and try to eventually make a decent quest out of it.

I had a dream about you kome. We were main characters in a JRPG. 

There was a cute robot girl who was supposed to be the protector of the world but this floating guy made her go crazy to sheer away the Earth's crust and get at a magical core at the center of the planet. I was a magical ostrichlike bird monster who was her friend after she lost her memories and you were a shounen anime hero with six pack abs, a ridoculously large sword, and a brown wolf's head pelt cowl. Another party member was a guy in scrubs and a surgical mask with a buzzcut and very small eyes who I think was the party healer. There were two others I forget. The game was created by somebody named Goblin King who posted in this thread and isekaid four people into it. Two of them were us, one of them had an R at the front of their name and was the doctor kid, and I forget the other. 

At the final boss battle the robot had gone evil and was destroying the world, so you run up to the big bad and then stop when he doesn't flinch. You declare he is an illusion, then get cut in half. The dream ended there because my alarm went off.

That’s not even a dream, that’s just what Kome does in the fourth dimension when he’s not on TGchan.

So I'm new to tabletop games, and I'd like to start a game of CoC. I have a group of people interested, but I was wondering how we would go about this. Are they any tips, rules, etc. I should know about running this, and CoC in general?
>>
No. 8021 ID: 274a74

CoC is not D&D, or many of the other games you may have heard bandied about. Do not treat it as such.
Make sure you do right by the lore, it's 60% of the game.
Make sure the players understand they are not going to "win". CoC is a brutal game, at times, where the few victories are presaged by defeats in spades. The easily butthurt need not apply.
>>
No. 9947 ID: 943463

Indeed. Well-run CoC games should not include much in the way of serious combat; any character significantly better in combat than their *player* would be is already trending towards munchkin. (That's a good way of gauging it, really: could *you, the person sitting at the table rolling dice, do that?)

Also, go watch the Spoony Experiment video talking about Call of Cthulhu, combat, and characters: "If you stat it, they will kill it".
>>

Try to be careful not to get player that are too jaded of CoC. In many cases for me and most of the party is was, "Hey, lets race to zero sanity!"

Lost Mine of Phandelver

Over five hundred years ago, a pact was made between a clan of gnomes and dwarves which became known as the Phandelver Pact. Together they mined the magically rich ores within Wave Echo Cave. Human spellcasters from nearby Phandalin joined forces with them and together they combined their collective skills to create a forge to craft magical items dubbed the Forge of Spells. Everything came to an abrupt end when orcs, craving magical treasures, sieged Phandalin and the Wave Echo Cave mine. The battle destroyed Phandalin and much of the mine as well, causing various cave-ins throughout. Very few survived the conflict to relate the tale. The Forge of Spells become legend and the entrance to Wave Echo Cave was lost.

Hey everyone, Doomsby here Looking For Group!

As the title says, I'm going to be running The Lost Mine of Phandelver. I feel it'll be a good way to shake of the cobwebs on my DM'ing skills and also this module appears to be fairly friendly to new comers. Ultimately, the goal of running this is to help find other players that I can mesh with and have some good TTrpg times, not to perfectly go through this module. So while this sounds pessimistic, if there's a problem with the group, you just don't like how I run things, or things just don't work out, there's no stress to drop out. I'm willing to restart things and retread over stuff to find a group to have fun with. Hopefully we all can find a good group fairly quickly. That all said, let's go over some things.

About myself:

I got into D&D at the tail end of 3.5, joined in on a campaign as a half-orc wizard. Most of my D&D experience is with 4th edition. Both playing and running games. Just had a consistent group that we did a lot of short campaigns together. Unfortunately, when playtesting for 5th edition started rolling out, the group moved apart due to

1. Riotmode

2: that actually seems to be the worst possible time for me unfortunately, converting it to utc 6pm for you is the dead of midnight for me and I work at 4 AM

3. Decent experience, been through about 6 campaigns across varying characters though I can't claim to have gotten a proper ending in any of them.

4. I usually focus on backstory and character dynamics, I like flawed characters that clash with other party members for fun interactions. Notably, one character I'm looking to bring to the table is Scamper Tallow, a masked and heavily scarred engineer who has a deep-rooted loathing for magic and, by extension, wizards. She'll work with them, but she's not comfortable in the slightest around them.

5.I quite like semi-serious settings, about at the level of terry pratchett. Japery is welcome, but must be tempered to the world's overall tone.
I don't want to be conversing with a character named King Bonerton Gonnadie if it's an intrigue plot and we're tasked with preventing his assasination, but some rogue popping out of the shadows and shanking someone in the dick for killing their buddies in a previous mission wouldn't be out of place, as an example.

6. my expectations are mostly good worldbuilding and open-ended encounters. Things that would make me drop the game would be inconsistent player characters, time-slot conflicts, or learning my playstyle is negatively impacting other players.

1.)Thk
2.)time works baring changes in my life.
3.)back in highschool i participated in some freeform roleplays and some dnd but they tended to not get far past character creation. I am currently participating in a drop in dnd table.
4.)generally let dice decide unless i see something cool, work better trying to work a given set of traits then come up with them myself.
5.)much of my early RP experience was mostly hanging back and watching. I would suspect I would be part of the group of people who might get too into a joke.
6.)if it is an obvious trap to the low wisdom character there is room for internal debate depending on just HOW low health I'm at, however if that is out of character knowledge then that is a room full of free gold and I would be stupid to turn down such an opportunity just cause i'm hurt.
6.)i'm not entirely sure, as i think this drop in game i'm in now (an in person game on wednesdays) is the first campaign that is reasonably well DMed, so my hopes are as high as 'not another character creator simulator'

No. 11755 ID: 867391

1.)Name: cragum

2.)Time: 6 peem saturdays in my time zone is fine, yeah.

3.)Experience: I have been an active player and DM in multiple systems, i started in dungeoneer, then ad&d and continued from there. My experience with 5e is limited to a test run my group did that we didn't think very highly of when 5e was shiny and new. I'm interested in giving it a deeper try because reasons.

4.)Making a character: Context is pretty important here. I do try to fill in missing roles if I'm aware of a lack, but otherwise I'll generally try to come up with a concept and build the character and backstory as the mechanics come together. by the end of creation i will usually as a rule have a personality in mind for said character and some sort of long term goal which resulted in adventuring, though it usually doesn't end up on paper just reflected in the actions of said character.

5.)Seriousness: I enjoy any and all levels of seriousness from the goofy romp through candyland to the desperate battle through an evil king's dungeon to save the last known survivor of the kingdom's true royalty. The only caveat to that is i generally don't enjoy visiting the DM's 'magical realm.'

6.)Scenario: Call the party's attention to it and either go do the looty-looty (if i'm rogue) or let the party figure it out (if they are my keepers).

6.)Expectations: As a long time veteran player and DM, I am always interested in experiencing new groups and systems in order to try to get inspiration and keep things interesting for my mainline group. I expect you as a DM to keep things fair and to herd the cats all players are known to be. I do not forsee anything that would cause me to drop the game, but if something does come up I will do my best to give as much warning as I can.

1) Name: A giant hat.
2) 6 pm Saturday is a claimed time slot for me, and so few aren't that I'm just hoping to be a spectator really, it was a fun questionnaire.
3) Only been in 5e games that lasted more than a few sessions really, but I've also played to both extremes of narrative (dungeon world) and mechanical (shadowrun). Side note, don't play Shadowrun unless you're prepared to rewrite the rules from the ground up.
4) I like to come up with a build that sounds fun to play which then informs the character. Once the character is created though, any leftover choices are about what the character would choose.
5) I like a game where the players can joke around even if the characters stay in it.
6) I would probably try to defeat the trap with cleverness instead of brawn. Even if my character is not so good at cleverness, if they squint hard enough they might see a pulley or tripwire to toss an axe at... Triggering it anyway.
7) Like I said, not expecting I'll be able to get in due to time constraints (I can dream though), but I'd like to see how a trip to Phandelver goes.

1.)AweShock

2.)Time: Works

3.)Experience: Played SR, have no actual experience with D&D. Have played Skyrim and other RPGs.

4.)Making a character: Come up with a concept I want to play and character build around that. Can stat to fit the party, but I think I'd prefer to stat around the character.

5.)Seriousness: I think I prefer more serious games, and am very plot oriented. If we're progressing that I'll probably be happy. Not opposed to ooc shitposting though.

6.)Scenario: Hypothetical scenario, and assuming low wisdom doesn't mean dumb, they'd start focusing on how to get the gold out without putting themselves in danger. If this means manipulating a NPC or trying

6.)Expectations: I want a game that'll let me play the character to the end, and ideally allow for inter-party conflict without it being an ooc issue. Something that has a hard goal we're working to that we'll reach in a defined period of time (i.e. within six months of sessions for example) that'll complete the game.
