Grids were introduced because all the tapemeasuring was a major timesink and a *pain in the ass*. Letting a neutral referee make spot judgements for speed of play was fine-in the old pvp games when there *were* neutral referees. In D&D letting the DM "eyeball it" never ends well for the players.

Stone Soup time.. with a difference.

Rather that discuss how we all horribly died for the millionth time, I figured we could make use of the arena function.

There won't be tiles, but we can see who can kick who's ass. I can to multiple opponents on each side, including multiples of different monsters(some run in bands so I can specify ___ band), and I can battle uniques as well. I can also specify a spawn from a certain part of the dungeon like vault 7. That will spawn monsters appropriate for that area. I can't chose the specific monster that will spawn from that area.. but I can say how many. I also have to name for each side. This also means I can specify a unique to fight on one side.. then say do vault 7 for the opposing team.

Go wild.

When giving monster names, please give the full name. Especially on uniques. I can't just put Blork. I have to put Blork the Orc. The full name of what they are called in game.

I'll be doing an example run first. Three gnolls versus Sigmund. Make your bets now before scrolling down.

Going to run a fun little game, I'll need 3-6 players

I will choose the most applicable characters, bonus points for character sketches!

to create your Astranian determine your 4 stats

Action: for fighting and body things
Guts: for how much bad stuff you can take,
Smarts: for smart guys stuff like computers and fixing things
Looks: for talking and being pretty

each stat starts at 1, and you've got 8 points to spread around

Also you'll need to pick 3 things your Astranian is really good at
And 3 things they are really bad at.

Each Astranian starts with a set of clothes(gravboots not included), 10 vapins(money) 2 tech items, and 2 extra batteries to fuel them

and finally you gotta write a short Bio about your Astrannian.

I posted about this on other /tg/, but some folks here might be interested, plus this board moves nowhere as fast, always a bonus.
Anyways, I'm making a Redwall RPG using a customized d20 system (classess, economyless, almost no magic).
I'm finished with the PC races and am almost done with the "class" system.
I'm tweaking skills, specifically reworking Craft and Perform, and introducing Alchemy, Brewing, Cooking, Mining, and Sailing.
I'm rounding off the feat selection, trying to simplify it somewhat.
I've yet to start NPC rules, such as stats for vermin and other beasts. I've reworked distance and time, added additional rules for healing, and I'm almost done with weapons, armor and equipment.
I'm also making a random vermin name generator.

I've been rereading the entire series and taking extensive notes about the setting, the capabilities of the races, scale, distance and time, mannerisms, spiritual beliefs, and pretty much anything else that catches my eye.

Here's most of the first 2 chapters:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Tvx7sjmAKSSFloW0idElmf-FbQx7kXFp9X_D-MIdyDQ/edit?usp=sharing

If anyone has questions or suggestions I'd love to hear them.

REIGN is a spin-off of the One Roll Engine, by Greg Stolze

http://www.gregstolze.com/reign/


It does low-powered fantasy well, and it is extremely mutable (the designer of the game goes into detail in the companion book, The REIGN Enchiridion, about why he made the design choices he did and how to modify it without breaking the game).


I'll admit I'm a fanboy for REIGN, and felt it might be cool to adapt Redwall to it, but as one of the guys trying to develop the Redwall One Roll hack, I really appreciate the scaffolding you all laid out.

Thanks!

So what you are saying is, certain intellectual properties intimately linked with (but legally distinct from) dungeons and/or dragons may have borrowed inspiration from the literary work of the man responsible for 90% of the modern fantasy genre's groundwork, especially as it relates to dragons and dungeons? Astounding.

I mean this particular connection never became obvious to me either, but I am not surprised that such things happen.

Pic unrelated. I'm not sure if anyone is interested, but I gotta post this somewhere and tg/ needs some love so here's something I whipped up for GURPS 3e out of boredom and frustration:

ONE-ROLL COMBAT FOR GURPS 3e

LITE VERSION:

Each defense starts at -5 points, plus the normal attributes and bonuses in conventional GURPS 3E (the defenses are Dodge, Parry, and Block).

For each attack, the ATTACKING player chooses a body part to aim at and the DEFENDING player chooses a defense to use.

The attacker subtracts the defender's defense score from their weapon skill, and then tries to roll at or below it (they roll 3d6).

If successful the attacker chooses one die to represent damage dealt (multiply by the number of damage dice you would normally roll, then add/subtract any other modifiers).

If the attacker chose to aim at ANY body part, he/she chooses another die (aside from the damage die) to represent the body part hit:

I thought this would work better than the standard critical rolls for one-roll attacks,

SCALING CRITICALS:

Critical = rolling triples (all three dice rolled show the same number on their faces)

Critical Failure = Fumble

Critical Success = Triumph/Trump (haven't chosen which sounds better)

If you roll triples AND you roll at or below your skill, it becomes a TRIUMPH/TRUMP, and acts the same as a conventional GURPS 3E critical.

If you roll triples AND you roll above your skill, it becomes a FUMBLE, and acts like a conventional GURPS fumble.

A roll of 3 is always a Triumph/Trump, and a roll of 18 is always a Fumble.

Rolling 4 is not a critical, and rolling 17 is not a fumble.

Pros: players with high skill have more critical successes, works well with the one-roll combat mechanic

Cons: players with low skill have more fumbles, GMs have to deal with slightly more fumbles and criticals

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.

Thus Spake the Orky Fella:
Hey y'all, trying to make a good trap style dungeon in D&D 4e, similar to the good old grimy days of 2e when I first started. The party, while having played some pnp, have not actually played D&D before, and I want to teach them caution and care, to approach things with measured amounts of guts and glory, suspicion and malign.
Any tips that you have here, things that you lot remember from your youth or things you have sprung on your own players? Starting at level 1, and open to a lot of ideas. The area is a classic underground cave dwelling that is under a river.

The Orky Fellow returns.
My updates are short these days, following a severe drought of gaming happening.
>sigh
But this one is quite fun (sorta).
The group decided to rest out in a underground graveyard of a abandoned dwarven fastness.
Deciding to sleep in shifts, I had them make perception checks and such to see if they noticed anything. I rolled a shitton behind the screen, just to fuck with their metagaming minds (do this a lot recently), until I roll one of the special numbers of 60/70/80/90. I got a 90, time to JUST AS PLANNED them.
I have a magic mouth, planted by the BBEG necromonster in the center of the room, start to speak to them in the most obnoxiously effeminate, flaming gay voice I can muster after 22 hours of no sleep. I must have done a good job as the group replies to the goading with groans, ooc jokes and general aggravation at the idea of being found out.
>stop letting Thin Man escape and maybe you could have moved unheard of
The sorc does a detect magic, and finds it on the floor, the ranger points it out (damn sky high perception) offhand. The warden walks over, asks for a description of the mouth, I tell him it's a big mouth, big teeth, with no lips, think Cheshire Cat. He (predictably) smashes it with his hammer, and eats a trap, blinding, glittering powder spews from the broken teeth.
>glitterdust was always one of my favorite spells
I tell him he is blinded, save doesn't end, and tell the rest of the group he sparkles in the light, setting off a new round of Twilight references, disparaging homosexual slurs and so forth. The sorc does a detect magic on the powder, and is surprised when he is told it is NOT magic (I decided to not make this so simple, use your skills people). The sorc chats with warlord, deciding to simply wash it out of his eyes. The warden then feels a

Holy shit, this thread is still here?
Well, since it's here, and so have I, I will pace out the end of this particular story.
The group breaks out, having had a decent rest, and sallied forth along the trail already blazed to trails untested.
The warlord asks for a moment to say a few solitary prayers to the dead, as the paladin did not, and leaves back to the crypt, his torch bobbing into the darkness.
>the warlord's player had to leave due to drama within the group, apparently he hit on the one player's girl who was also playing
Returning to the crossroads, they took the turn they demurred on prior, traveling down a long, worked stone hall with many turns and twists, eventually coming to an odd length of hall studded with disembodied arms and legs.

One of my characters was in a hall similar to that one once. I just started hacking the limbs off with my greataxe until some skeleton archers showed up at the other end.

Dunno if you still check this, but I'm actually interested in the exciting conclusion. The whole thing was a fun read.

For the love of God, MOAR. This is like if you took Old Man Henderson and made him a dumbass instead of a badass. And then made four more.

Seriously, this is hilarious.

Anyone have any suggestions on where I could get any good larping gear or equipment? I was thinking of maybe trying it out.

What's your budget? I know where you can get a full set like that image, but only if you are willing to drop a couple grand on the whole project.

what country are you in? or what larp? Check the website and see the photos to see what kind of gear is commonly used.

Alrighty, so a group of friends and myself are currently playing a game that one of my friends made. It's kind of like a cross between the dark, apocalyptic nature of Dark Heresy and the tech-based cyberpunk nature of Shadowrun. While I personally love it, I'm also the new guy at the table and so I'm not that great at the whole roleplaying bit. The question I have is how to work with other player-types. For some odd reason, no matter what character I end up playing, he evolves into the leader of the group, even when I went out of the way to make a meek, scientist who was literally brought along to examine things. A sequence of events always ends up changing the character I start with into a much more aggressive, and headstrong person. That being said, because I end up leading the group many times, I also have many struggles with my teammates, specifically one who refuses to cooperate with anyone if it means he isn't doing something awesome. If he misses a shot, the game is broken, if he fails a check then the skills aren't right, if he gets corrected, he jumps into super-defensive mode. How do I deal with these kinds of players? It's always the same person too, and I generally get along with every other player type, in and out of character.

Playing different character types means you always need to keep the character in mind rather than making a hasty decision (which, based on your gut/intuition, will be your own decision, not nesciscarily your character's.)

You may try shooting for a second-in-command for instance, a position where you can use your own drive for authority to prop up someone else as the leader.

As for complainers, if he's really a problem you'd likely need to agree to handle him as a group, not an individual.

I really do try and keep the character's motives and ideas as the drive for the story but like I said, it isn't my fault that my characters get pushed into a leadership position. It usually ends up that way because either the team gets separated, the original leader dies, or the rest of the team becomes grievously wounded.

Backstory- Zehrahlixia was the daughter of a beggar, who was exiled from House Kaliaxix as part of a scandal. While the beggar now is no more than yet another ghost in the town's tomb, Zehrahlixia was not content to live on the pity offers and wait until she joined her father, and spent more time out in the wilderness, slowly and painfully learning how to survive out there. In time, she eventually honed her skills enough to become an outsider-in-waiting, to the house that she actually hails from, despite not being aware of it.

ok, because of both schedule conflicts and because I can't connect to IRC for some myterious reason, I probably won't make it to tonight's tombdog meeting. Sorry!
