Patience. You just wait for the enemy to die.
2 handed, but lighter than most 2 handed weapons, good for agile, coordinated, but not ultrastrong people (who could use an heavier two handed weapon, or use it one handed), and takes a fuckton to master.

You succeeded in failing.
Cute. Okay, let’s run your CHA check the right way, mr. bard. In a story context, explain to everyone how and why you’re “seducing the dragon”...? Is the dragon in human form and has been messing with the royal court? Has She shown up to gloat of her plans to you late at night? Let’s set this up and you can make some accumulated successes to represent an evening of charm and reparté.

Otherwise, shut the fuck up with your “muh high CHA score”.

Thinking of getting a new set of dice. Not interested in spending $60 for a game science set. There's so many different manufacturers nowadays, I have no idea of their quality.
30 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
I wish more companies made precision dice. Gamescience is cool and all, but between the variable quality, the constant lack of stock, and the fact that you can't buy them in bulk without getting 80% useless dice like d5s and shit seriously puts me off of them.
you pretty much said why I'm so iffy on Game science. I respect them make precision dice, but I would be very tempted to a buy a the Big Set. The 2D to 30D dice set.
outside of spending the money n getting precision non tumbled dice just get a bulk bag. Think I got 20 sets for $25 and unless someone is going to sit around and roll all those fuckers and start tracking numbers on a spread sheet I do not think you are going to notice small bias.
literally Duke Devlin
Most of my dice are chessex if resin, Die Hard if metal. I don't give a massive shit if my dice aren't perfectly balanced - because I don't select my dice based on how I perceive their results.
I have a pretty sizable collection of dice after years of gathering them a few here and a few there. I like using a different set for every character, and sometimes I make a character after picking the dice first.

If you're like me and don't care about the nitty gritty small percentage shifts among individual dice, just buy a bulk dice set on Amazon or something.

Beyond dice, I don't give a shit about any other TTRPG supplies. It comes down to what you want, not the brand. Don't buy dice towers, they're a waste of money. Just get a nice dice tray.

>What is Genesys?
Released in November 2017, Genesys is a pen-and-paper generic RPG system and toolkit by Fantasy Flight Games and EDGE Entertainment, using a refined version of the system presented by their Star Wars RPGs (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force and Destiny). Its central mechanic is the Narrative Dice System, using pools made of specialized dice to create narrative results. The intention is for the system to be a highly flexible narrative system, adaptable to most any conceivable setting and premise.

One thing I always struggle with as a GM is self restraint when building a campaign. I read a book that gives an idea, and then it gets developed and then I read something else and I want to add that too, even if there's not room to explore both ideas to their full extent. In my Vampire campaign I've got murderous owl monsters, four different political schemes all unfolding as well as a werewolf pack and a mad elder, ontop of whatever the PCs cook up. For my prospective SotB campaign I don't know if I want to do a campaign about a piece of ice breaking its shackles and self-actualising as its own being in the network, or if I want to do a series of heists, megacorp espionage or something about humanity first and some bioroids trying to earn their freedom. There feels like there could be overlap between those four ideas, but until I do it I don't know if it's to the detriment of the others?
See which threads the players are more interested in, and follow those more closely. It keeps you from getting spread out too much while still allowing the opportunity to follow multiple overlapping stories.

Do you also come up with headcanons that expand the story of whatever you’re playing? Because if yes I think we’re friends now
I figure it's also that "worm" is a much more vague term. It tells you what it is, but the word is so versatile it still leaves it to the imagination.
I would also posit that flies. and by extension maggots, are just too relatable. They have arms, legs, discernable facial features, and we see them all the time above ground. Worms are just under the earth, doing whatever it is they do down there. It makes it easier to imagine them as less of individual animals and more as some kind of grim malicious gestalt conciousness. It's fascinating how prevalent the idea of worms puppeting a body around is, as if they have some kind of malignant collective will, as opposed to other carrion creatures which we see as mere animals.
Stupid? Naw this shit is useful as a gm so your player can't asspull "I was carrying my rifle the whole time!"

I'm stealing this kowloon walled city idea for delta green.
I wanna do 80s during the Reagan years, with my players acting as foreign advisors to the local government, however, implanted to investigate missing american citizens the Chinese government has been covering up.
There's also the fact that they're pretty alien to us on a personal level. They don't have most sensory organs, they lack even rudimentary or vestigial limbs, pretty certain they have no sense of taste and they don't even have a brain (IIRC they just have a mass of neurons that can detect an abundance of "light" and an abundance of "dark", that's it). They arguably shouldn't even be alive by most standards yet they are.

Worms are just weird in general. Which is part of why it's so easy to imagine them as a cosmic evil in horror stories.

Playing The Barbarian!

Any tips on making the grim warrior from the outskirts of civilisation a more interesting and enjoyable party member?

- How to make him unique - I have no intention of putting him in a wheelchair, but a bit of an edge, something unique, more than just a Conan Carbon Copy, would be nice

- How to integrate a gruff, perhaps even anti-social dude with a cultural background very unlike everyone else into the group?

- Any other tips?

As someone new to Blood Bowl, as in never played a game and currently painting my first team, how necessary/worth it are Star Players? The zombie dwarf and ghost lady they previewed awhile back looked cool, but I don’t know if I should bother. I kind of want them to paint regardless because the models look cool, but if I should just stick to playing normal players for the most part I would hold off on it

What’s a good solo game for a newcomer?
What are you looking for? Blackstone Fortresses has built in solo play rules if you want a dungeon exploration, and both Necromunda and Warcry have PvE monster hunting scenarios.

>What is Shadow of the Demon Lord?:
Shadow of the Demon Lord is a horror-fantasy tabletop adventure game that presents a world standing on the brink of annihilation. In this game, you and your friends play characters charged with fighting back against the spreading evil, whether that involves tracking down potent relics, exploring ancient faerie ruins, journeying into Hell to bargain with the Devil, or battling demons and the cultists who summon them. The system is setting agnostic and has a wide variety of possible details for your own world.

>What is PunkApocalyptic: the RPG?:
The world has gone to hell and nearly everyone who has lived through it has gone mad. In PunkApocalyptic: the RPG, you and your friends assume the roles of mercenaries who roam the Wasteland. In this bleak and radioactive land, you fight to survive, explore the ruins of what came before, and trade blood, sweat, and tears for the precious bullets that have become the land's currency. Explore the radioactive ruins, fight battle-crazed mutants, negotiate with bizarre cultists, bargain with junkers and scavengers, and unearth fantastic relics from the past.

The only real essential book is the Demon Lord's Companion. It is everything Schwalb wanted to put in the core book but had to remove because of printing issues. Everything passed that is just a case of what you're interested in and what it is you plan to do with your campaign. So what is it you like in the core book, don't like, would like to see more of, would like to see at all, general things that interest you in RPGs, and what is it you want to do in a campaign?
none really

Looks like a lot of their supplemental product goes through their own website through various PDF's and potential paperback books. Are there PDF exclusives, or will I be able to get all the content physically if I just focus on the books? Call it a personal bias, but I never liked paying for PDF's unless it came attached to a physical product.
>but I never liked paying for PDF

Spending this week learning a new TTJRPG system that im going to be teaching to my family.
I'll bite. What system are you learning?

The system classes are; Merchant, Bard, Healer, crafter, farmer, and noble. The system has a lot of rules for DMPCs. The DMPCs are dragons who get flavor stats to help direct the story, also includes rules for switching who is DM. In theory every single player can play as a Dragon and just cycle every week who is DM. The system uses a JRPG type of combat and is actually more a system to simulate travels.
Ill have to check on its name later. I dont have the book with me. I got a hard copy of it at my FLGS because it looked cute and I wanted anything new. Absolutely satisfied with it thus far and excited to teach players a new system.
oh, i know what you're playing, now that you described it. it's ryuutama for those that don't know. haven't played it yet, but it looks like a neat system.

Bronze bull.
Sealed people into little tombs, feeding them milk and honey until their shit drew so many insects it ate them alive.

pretty sure it started when EVERY low level dungeon people would run were full of the little fuckers, had to explain where they all came from, so now goblins breed like rabbits and mature quickly to go act as speed bumps for level 2-5 adventuring partys.
