What's your favourite Fighting Fantasy book?

Also what's the deal with Starship Traveller, is it related to the Traveller RPG?
12 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Moonrunner for sure.

Starship Traveller is just a Star Trek reskin. It's okay, never been rated anything other than mediocre by the fanbase.
The Sorcery books were my jam when I was a kid, took me years to get through 'em because I got the 1st one from overseas and had to wait for the other 3 to be translated and published.

Pic related. You could meet someone in book 1 and then run into 'em again in book2, and also book 4...

Also I really loved John Blanche's art on this, really atmospheric
It's mediocre, because the correct coordinates for the ending are just guesswork bullshit. There's no way to figure out which pieces are the right ones from all the false leads you get that lead to your death.
I really liked one of the older ones, Circus of Fear.

Mankind has the men of gold/iron and other freaky shit from the dark age of technology. But, do the Eldar have any strange artifacts or lost forbidden technology that could ruin someone's day? or have most of that stuff been sucked up by the Eye of Terror?

I want to get Valley of the Kings, what's better between Afterlife and Last Rites?
gloom haven looks really sweet, but dungeon crawlers like that won't appeal to a woman the same way it appeals to me. I'd love to play it though
The last one (Last Rites) is the most complex but there isn't too much in it.
you have an even halfway decent PC? try tabletop simulator, if you think that might be your kind of thing
Play storygames. Literally any flavor of Powered by the Apocalypse that strikes your fancy. Chicks love that system. Also things like Fiasco, Dialect, A Single Moment, or even any of the (free) Grant Howitt one-page rpgs.

Have you ever ran with an intentionally ugly female PC?
Why did you do it and how did it go?
203 replies and 63 images omitted. Click here to view.
Its a hit and miss bag. They like it when you are doing it right. But they won't tell you if you're doing it wrong or right, or how to do it in a way they enjoy. Hell, half the time, they won't tell you anything about it at all. Its kind of just expected that you know how to do it, and do it right. And if you are doing it wrong, you might end up with them complaining later behind your back or bringing it up in a fight in an effort to shame you/denigrate your abilities (as its a stereotype that men value their bed prowess). Or they could just chew your head off right there. Or they might be nice and help you please them with explanations and patience. A lot of the time they also don't want to bother going through the effort of helping you get better though. To complicate this, every woman has their own preferences in how you do it as well, so what works with one won't necessarily work with another.

In short, its just a giant mess, because there is no communication between partners a lot of the time.

That said, women aren't immune from the notion in a reciprocal sense. A lot of women will take the notion that they got a man to ejaculate as an example of a job well done, when that simply might not be the case. Guys have preferences too when it comes to oral, ranging from attention paid to the balls/head, and in some cases this is compounded by circumcision (which is a thing most guys have no choice over at all).

In short, people suck at sex. No one really communicates. Those that do, tend to do better. But not always.

How do you cheat in a classic game of dominoes? I remember there was a way to "count" them but it was just a messaround game so I stopped, then forgot it later...
It would be nice to know how to cheat if it is actually that

also do you guys remember samurai of legend>
>cheating at games
also im going to sleep for 4 hours but ive kept the thread open
anon the cheating at the game is better than the game itself,
more difficult, more fun

and when you finally play against a full table of other cheaters, then it's an entirely new game

its like counting cards or rigging and playing shithead. the normies are moved out and theyre the "blind bet" in the pot for the cheaters to be eliminated until its the best who can cheat the best

The Numinous Ones - House Cawdor
Colors: Yellow robes with red accents and a brownish-greenish tinge from being dirty.
The leaders of the Numinous Ones found a cog and half a vagely eagle looking mechanical bird badly burned/damaged and melted together. Believing this was a symbol from the Emperor that they were the chosen ones, they worship this idol and attempt to distance themselves from other members of House Cawdor unless cooperation is necessary. Despite their work and insanity, they take their duties to their religion seriously. The 'relic' they follow in was just an old cheap coo-coo clock a noble thew away that was damaged some time during it's time in the trash heaps.

Loads of it. But just like >>67395752 said, elf tits are the hot topic now. Though it's mostly humans who post them.

They already utilized my invention to this point? Maybe I should really further refine it.
>We all know you're the strongest class. What have you done to improve the world?
Nice, try, WIZARD. By saying "oh they're the strongest class but they suck!" you're tricking people into focusing more on the "yeah wizards are dicks" point but accept the "wizards are the strongest" point without realizing it. No, fuck you, casters are not the strongest, they only seem that way when the DM is shit.

It's a nice setup to have fights that aren't just "kill the opposition" like getting a bunch of runaway goats into submission so you can tie them up or drive away a confused giant boar while protection the food storage and people.

The PCs are Pirates in a game of Traveller

The preferred method of looting a ship is infiltrating a Liner and then take a hostage so they can somewhat peacefully space the cargo so the NPC pilot can pick it up.

Now I established it early that their pirate crew is musically inclined, first starting to hum shanties in the common room but quickly becoming a whole band that sings while working if the morale is high with synthesized instruments over a pirate channel called S.h4nti.
So when they take a hostage they are initially confused but since the officers just ooze social skills they usually just play poker with their two guards, sometimes they just start singing with the hostage.
They even have the reputation for being the best hostage takers in the sector, hence why they broadcast their ship name after the job is done.

Me. I'm the cute thing. Everything I make is fucking cute and I want to STOP BEING CUTE DAMMIT. LET ME BE LITERALLY ANYTHING ELSE EXCEPT CUTE. Even when I try to make an irredeemable asshole they're always CUTE about it.

This is a really fucking terrible place in hell I'm at anons.
In my setting the realm everyone lives in is made from the soul of a lonely goddess who desired to have a child and couldn't. Her sister is the goddess who currently protects this realm, seeing it as both the tomb and the most treasured creation of her younger sibling.

I don't know really what my players expected from this goddess. She is from their perspective:
>Essentially the God of Death and Rebirth within the realm. She overseas the continuation of life in order to keep the realm her sister made alive.
>Often misunderstood to be the creator herself.
>The most powerful thing the realm knows of.

But what they got was essentially an omnipotent (at least from their perspective) and incredibly kind Auntie sort of character. As she does, in a sense, believe this entire realm is the child of her Sister she in turn sees life in the realm as a strange sort of family. She really, really gives a shit about the little creatures she watches live out their existences within this tiny place. She watches it all with enraptured interest, sometimes watching the entire life of a specific being closely or watching fragments of billions of lives sporadically.

When the party actually contacted her it'd been almost 200 years within the realm since the last time she was directly manifested to communicate. Suddenly manifesting before the party caught her by surprise as she believed the trick to communicating with her had been lost (It had, they recovered it.). So they got a frazzled goddess who wasn't sure what to say because it'd been 200 years since she actually directly interacted with anyone, she's far more used to just watching them.

>play in a HFY setting
>The game is in any way about "justified racewar" fantasies
>it's all about humans beating up inferior competition or some other strawman, or humans having an inherent advantage that doesnt have anything to do with IRL humans
>GM didnt think about presenting the human ideals and the essence of our humanity to be something awesome, both potentially good and evil, and not necessarily exclusive to just humans themselves
Fuck that. We will kill the aliens, eat their meat, grind their bones to powder, snort that powder to get our dicks hard, then fuck their women so hard they will look like humans but with only minor cosmetic differences like pointy ears, or green skin, or a bony forehead or something.
Purge the Xenos. (Also mud "people" are xenos scum irl, btw)

Humans are essentially space orks.
HFY and "justified racewar" can be done well if devoid of the other. JRW is more about how we need to get rid of the other guy *fast*. Explicit HFY in an alien-invasion JRW is always overdoing it, and human invasion JRW is generally trash. There's also an extremely narrow and overly explored range of things you can do with both of those at once, because while all sorts of cool things can be done with one of them, the only plot that this combination permits is "evil horde overcame by crafty/lucky/charismatic human beings".

What elements go into the opposite of a grim and gritty campaign and setting? I want the atmosphere and feeling of my setting to be bright and optimistic, like the feeling you get from one of the Atelier games, but without being childish or childlike. Sense of wonder and exploration and optimism and all that

I know Gurney primarily as based color and light teacher for every single artist alive today. I'll have to read his dinotopia books. (I remember a shitty tv show that was based on them)
isnt that meant for kids
The original Dragon Ball series (everything before Raditz shows up) is a good model for what you're going for. There are occasional dark spots but mostly it's just young Goku and his friends adventuring around the world, seeking treasure, meeting interesting people, and battling assorted villains with crazy powers and crazier personalities.
Imo noblebright doesn't need to be rainbows and unicorns; in relative terms for your PC, it just means they have more agency and potential to change the world, and everyone is generally more proactive.
