Interesting, I will keep that in mind, thank you

>>87618890
I was thinking that combat will probably be the easiest provided I can keep track, it was the most intimidating thing as a player but now that I got a hang of it I believe that it will be doable even as a first time DM. Great advice, thank you

>>87618918
Damn... I'm excited, but scared at the prospect of the future. With that said, thank you for your advice and I hope you will be able to capture the spirit of your first session soon

>>87618966
Yeah, that seems to fit in with what I've heard, and probably is true, so thanks for the warning. I don't have much of a choice though since I'm running it tomorrow, the whole thing came about on a whim so there's no chance I can homebrew something on the spot as a novice. But I'll see where the story goes and get familiarized with DMing while the players grasp the rules and roleplaying, so maybe I'll just completely take the campaign off the rails after the first few sessions, since I'm ultimately interested in providing a fun experience for both me and the boys which doesn't have to happen within the confines of an officially sourced campaign

Awesome. You definitely have the right attitude for dming. Godspeed anon, and keep us posted.

Welcome to the Old School Renaissance General, the thread dedicated to TSR-era D&D, derived systems, and compatible content.

Broadly, OSR games encourage a tonal and mechanical fidelity to Dungeons & Dragons as played in the game's first decade—less emphasis on linear adventures and overarching meta-plots and a greater emphasis on player agency.

If you are new to the OSR, welcome! Ask us whatever you're curious about: we'll be happy to help you get started.

Well, yes mostly. If you’ll indulge a bit of pedantry from me, I’d say it’s in our nature to be aggressively territorial. It still admittedly leads to the same outcome “we’ll stay on our side and you stay on your side or we’ll flip the fuck the fuck out and start murdering everybody”, an attitude we also share with chimpanzees; but this clarification also gives the wiggle room for diplomatic resolutions which we also like to pursue whenever we can, because we’re not stupid (it’s one of humanity’s defining traits) and realize that war is a costly endeavor and really shouldn’t be Bandied about so nonchalantly.

Again I realize how pedantic it sounds and apologize for that.

Generally they’re designed so that you don’t have to do the above. They allow for a more explorative type of play, where you genuinely don’t know what’s going to happen next (because it’s improvised and/or guided by the system).

The indeterminism style isn’t for everyone, and there’s nothing wrong with playing a more objective style, but those systems generally cater to both (see: milestone planning in Ironsworn)

>>87549255

Typically, i do one character. But once in a Marvel solo, i had beak (the hairless bird mutant) as a sidekick.

So guys i haven't had the best of luck with my solos. They were fun but short lived half the time. I'm thinking that i want something more long running.

I have like 2 different ideas for a more long running solo.

1st is a chronicles of darkness blood bather game where i play a blood bather from world of darkness immortals encountering the other supernaturals.

2ed is call of cthulhu. Just play a character until they die, then move on to the next one in the same world.

Which would you guys recommend
>>
>>87618671
I have a long-ish campaign in the style you describe and started treating it more like a writing exercise than a game to relax with. Rolling introduces more distractions from the ever-growing pile of plot threads. For the record, I really enjoy that campaign, but it barely feels like a game now.

Potentially, though I think the coolness gets vastly diminished if the dragon itself isn't an actual character and just an animal.

>Also, my gm wants to port the system to DH2. What's so bad about DW that it's worth switching to another system?
It's not bad, but basically, the various FFG systems had changes across the years, with the biggest ones being the psychic power system from Dark Heresy being ditched in the following games (going from the WHFRPG magic system to a WP test-based one) and Swift Attack/Lightning Attack/Semi-Auto/Full auto.

In DW/DH/RT, full auto and semi-auto give bonuses to hit, while in DH2/OW/BC they get penalties compared to single shot. Likewise, the previous systems had Swift Attack and Lightning Attack allow you to make 2/3 separate attacks, whereas in more recent ones make them behave like semi/full auto, but in melee.

>>87614827
Single shot weapons are generally awful (except for meltaguns), and staying mobile is your best shot at staying alive. Don't try to build into a jack of all trades, focus on doing one thing really well. Autocannons are the best man-portable heavy in the game since they're cheap and plentiful. Meltaguns work great for fighting both vehicles and heavily armored bosses, while bolters and volkite let you punch well above your weight. Ignore plasma, it's bad.

How do you feel about TRPGs where humanity is better off when ruled by non-humans? I know that Exalted and Warhammer 40k both do this, but is it a fun idea for challenging the players perceptions, or is it needlessly misanthropic?

I wouldn't say 40k really has that theme. Yeah the Emperor and his primarchs are technically non human, but the planetary governors who actually rule most of the human population very much are, as evident but their propensity for corruption and vice. And that's to say nothing of the Inquisition.

>or is it needlessly misanthropic?

It isn't needlessly misanthropic as long as you show the overclass being imperfect as well.

I read a book series where humans used to be enslaved by dragons to the point that dragons bred humans like dogs into different breeds.

Dragons have long been extinct, and we learn that when they ruled, there was peace and prosperity and a network of Roman roads crossing the world.

Then a dragon comes back, and we learn that they warred upon each other for stupid shit, with vast armies of humans dying, and they they really did think of us like dogs and though some were affectionate to some humans, they really thought nothing of sending vast numbers to die, or neutering some, or in one case deafening entire armies.

So while life was maybe better when ruled by non-humans, it was far from perfect.
